"Enchanted" is... well...ENCHANTED!

I had a chance to see Enchanted last night, so I took it.

Although the film sort of drifts into the "romantic-comedy" region (which I'm not very partial to), there's just enough of everything to satisfy: action, comedy, fantasy, drama & all that "lovey-dovey" stuff in between. It's like a pie that's cut into equal pieces: everyone gets a fair share.

I don't want to delve into too much detail, but I must have to say the movie is fantastic! The animation was superb & it really felt like a classic Disney fairy tale (great job, James Baxter & Co.!). & speaking of which, this film is a real treat for big Disney buffs like me. So many self references. I don't wish to spoil too much of the film for those who haven't seen it, but for you big Disney History fanatics out there, pay very close attention throughout the whole film. Some things are easier to spot, but some things are much harder to pick out, even though they are in plain sight. Look & listen very carefully!

& most importantly, I'm more than glad to hear that this film is getting very positive reviews all around. Will this be the beginning of a new, successful age of traditional animation at Disney's? By the look of this film it seems so, but there's only one way to see that dream come true: GO SEE ENCHANTED!
