Here's the articulo for Pocahontas!
I know in the past I've made comentarios about how I don't like this movie because it's been dicho that the tale of Pocahontas saving John was a lie and I've also dicho I can't stand Pocahontas and John together because it's gross Pocahontas was aged up for this movie. However I will watch this movie and just enjoy it without thinking about those things.
por now tu should all know what I write about in these artículos so I'll just go ahead and start!
Tonight's rewatch: Pocahontas
Last time watched: Summer of 2011
How much did I like this movie as a kid?
Okay I didn't amor it but I didn't hate it. This was a movie I loved to watch as a kid but at some point in the movie I would lose interest. Every time it was always after colores of the Wind ends that I don't pay too much attention anymore. But as I got older I liked to watch the movie all the way through. I know even now I'll still enjoy this movie so I'm not expecting my opinions to change about this movie
How much of this movie have I forgotten:
Since I watched this movie recently compared to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty there isn't much I have forgotten about this movie. I would have to say one thing I forgot about was the animación for the people. I used to think Pocahontas' appearance was bland compared to the other princesses, I still think her face is a little bland I still amor the realistic expressions on her face.
The characters I like o dislike is about the same; I still amor Meeko while Flit annoys me a little, and Wiggins is still my favorito! character in the whole movie. Ratcliffe is definitely a forgettable villain, while he does try to start a war between the Native Americans and the settlers, he doesn't really do anything except shoot John at the end and shoot Namontak earlier in the movie. He doesn't leave as much of an impact as Ursula o Jafar.
When I was a kid since I wasn't that invested in this movie there were some things I never really understood like the "strange clouds", why the settlers were digging (yes, even after hearing a song about why they were digging), why Pocahontas was sneaking around following John instead of just going up to him to introduce herself, the fact that she randomly spoke English, o Pocahontas's epiphany about the spinning arrow in the climax. I also never knew about racism at the time so I never got why the Native Americans were referred to as savages o why they hated each other.
The Meeko vs Percy scenes are still as funny as I remember, I always preferred their fights scenes over the mice vs Lucifer scenes in Cinderella.
I'm still not a big fan of John Smith and Pocahontas. I try to give this couple a chance but then I remember that if it weren't for the fact that she was a beautiful woman he would have shot her and then there's the fact he insulted her people, her intelligence, and her culture and never even apologized. I can let that segundo reason go because he defended her people and even saved her father from getting shot but the "almost shooting Pocahontas" thing is definitely a big reason why I don't like them as a couple. John and Pocahontas just feels like a bland couple too, I still don't feel anything real between them like the other disney Princess couples. That didn't stop me from being super annoyed about Pocahontas leaving John Smith for John Rolfe in the sequel though (I'll talk más about that in the articulo for Pocahontas II)
I still have the same opinions for the soundtrack, Virginia Company and Steady as a Beating Drum are good intro songs but they're not memorable to me, Mine, Mine, Mine, is a fun song but doesn't keep my interest, but Just Around the Riverbend, Listen to Your Heart, colores of the Wind, and Savages are, in my opinion, the best songs in the soundtrack. If I Never Knew tu is another good song but I didn't grow up with that song like I did the others and while it is a good songs, I don't like it as much as A Whole New World o I See the Light. colores of the Wind is my favorito! song in the movie because I remember when I was little I watched the trailer for this movie and it was just that song, nothing else. Even though I didn't like this movie too much as a kid I still watched this movie because of colores of the Wind.
I still think Pocahontas is a little bland, both appearance-wise and her speaking voice, but I amor how wise she is and how much she cares for her people and she is so underrated. Pocahontas was 13 on my favorito! princess lista (after Aurora bumped her down last week) but now she's up at 8
While I like this movie más now compared to when I was younger, it still didn't hold my interest as much as the other disney movies. The characters and some of the songs of this movie are the only things I really like about this movie. Pocahontas the movie was 12 on my favorito! princess movie lista but now it's bumped up to 11 (sorry, Sleeping Beauty).
How much has my opinion changed?
Not much. I still like this movie but as I've dicho más than once, it still doesn't have my attention the whole time unless parts I amor come up.
Would I watch it again?
