Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments I'm trying to pick my favs, Sashana. In order: Snow White, Belle, Jasmine, & then Cinderella. I might like Tangled - but I haven't heard that song or seen the movie yet. I may have to watch that soon.

Gemma | 120 comments You should watch it Lisa it's so funny (:

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments I think I will do that today, Gemma. I need a break from books. I've been a reading fiend this month b/c I'm doing the "All About You" challenge and this is the month for pushing to a higher monthly book count. Too much pressure!

Sashana | 6358 comments Let us know how it goes, LK. It's one of my favorites.

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments Will do, Sashana!

Midu Hadi | 2487 comments and whatever you do, don't break the smolder :-p

Gemma | 120 comments A break from books?!
I often find I need to take time out from life to make more time for books (:
I hope you enjoy the film!

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments Went on a bit of a movie binge last night. LOVED Tangled. Mother Gothel is so awful, I don't know if I can watch her part again. I might have to skip through her. I image, anyone who had their child kidnapped would have difficulty with that movie. Then had to watch Big Miracle which I also liked a lot. Then onto Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

Midu Hadi | 2487 comments Wow,LK! glad you liked Tangled!

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments I did, Midu! It was the best of the three. I liked the last two equally, but I did fall asleep during SH and had to finish it this morning. I must admit, some parts were better than others.

message 873: by Midu (new)

Midu Hadi | 2487 comments yeah, not everybody likes the new SH movies. my cousins seem to think they have too much action but i told em in the books, Holmes knew a lotta fighting styles, he just didn't choose to act on them much

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments You are right, Midu! I've read SH - and he does. I actually LOVE the first movie. This one was good, too.

message 875: by Midu (new)

Midu Hadi | 2487 comments me too, have yet to watch the second one.

message 876: by Sashana (last edited Jun 25, 2012 01:55PM) (new)

Sashana | 6358 comments Love the picture, Midu (as usual!).

I think Mother Gothel made a great villan. Love it when she sings her mother knows best song. *hums*

I didn't like the SH movie either. I haven't read any of the books though so I have nothing to compare it to.

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments There were parts of the SH that were good, but parts that dragged for me. Obviously, as it put me to sleep. I rarely to never fall asleep watching a movie. (Only have working a double shift, if then.)

Gemma | 120 comments Glad you enjoyed it Lisa!
I must say I very much enjoy the new Sherlock Holmes films, but I also very much enjoy Robert Downey Jr, so that does help! :D

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments Oh, I liked it, Gemma. I ♥ RDJ and I think he actually gets better looking with age. And we all know he can act. The chemistry between JL & RDJ is great, too. I don't think the stars were the problem. Not sure if it was directing, storyline or editing.

JessicaAnn Lillis (jeskalillis) | 51 comments Saw this on and wasn't sure if it was already posted on here, but I thought I would share.


Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments So cute, Jessica Ann!

Sashana | 6358 comments Nice, Jessica! It wasn't on here previously.

Sashana | 6358 comments Disney Heroines As Superheroes

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments Ariel's green!

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments It's not easy being green.

Aleksandra (spalkiry) | 68 comments I'm finally diving in, originally going for EASY.

1/3 READ

♚ Belle - Beastly ♥♥♥♥ 27/06/2012

Lisa Kay, I could never possibly make my mom watch any animated movies! EVER! And here you are, loving Tangled! It's nice to know that I won't be the only one someday :D! Oh, I love Tangled. I might watch it again today....

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments Really, Aleksandra? I wonder why?

Aleksandra (spalkiry) | 68 comments She has no imagination. I mean it. I love her, she's the best mom to me, but the imagination - I didn't get from her.

LOL. What does you mom like to watch?

Aleksandra (spalkiry) | 68 comments Drama, serious stuff mostly. Comedies too, but we (both) are picky about what's funny and what not. But fantasy is definitely not her genre. Neither are animated movies.
The fun part is that I can talk as much as I would want to about the latest animated movie I fell in love with, whether Disney/Dreamworks, or pretty much any Studio Ghibli movie, and she enjoys listening to me, but she would never watch them :D.

willaful | 140 comments I've been waiting for this one: Summer Days (Fool's Gold, #7) by Susan Mallery. Heroine has a pet goat!

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15276 comments LOL! Great, Willa!
