Pocahontas 1 and 2 review/rantI have just spent the afternoon watching 2 films I badly need to see; Pocahontas 1 + 2, and I have a very mixed bag feeling about them.More Like This
In short, the first one was a masterpiece, portraying emotions and feelings in stunning animation with almost flawless voice acting. The brilliant study of blowing hair and water actions as well as stunning backgroun art is enough to make your eyes pop. Adding to that, the songs are catchy and memorable, sung and played expertly. I am looking forward to seeing it on my TV on DVD rather than YouTube.
However, I was more than a little disappointed with Pocahontas 2, Journey to a New world.
There are many things very wrong about this movie.
1) It's not teaching kids the moral of loyalty to a loved one, and it's totally fine to ditch one man when you get bored of him. It even goes against the Disney code!
2) Granted, the ending was historically accurate, but none of the rest of either movie was, so why start now? Put a dampener on everything we saw in the
