The audio was sub-par. My biggest gripe was the center. It sounded closed in and too quiet.

I agree, the SQ threw me for a loop... soundstage just sounded small and like you said closed in. The LFE was good but I really wanted a more vibrant audio track to match the vibrant PQ. I thought the music was decent at first but it has really grown on me. My daughter has been watching this every weekend so I've really been enjoying the music more, especially the opening track and the I Had A Dream. Fun music and you can really hear Alan Menken's direction with the vocal voicing, almost reminds me of Little Mermaid with the whispering wind up and punching higher notes on certain words... good stuff. I wish the extra content would have shown some footage of recording the songs. I've enjoyed that in the past on classic Disney films.

The sun in the center, of course, but around the edges: a chameleon, a white horse, a cherub with a bow & arrow (like the old man at the pub), and a duck (reference to the Snuggly Duckling). The last icon, a bluebird, may be a nod to a French variant of the Rapunzel story called "The Blue Bird".

Good catch! I remember seeing the chameleon but not the others. I agree and hope that Disney continues to release more like this, I'm really glad to see music making a comeback to their animated films.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but my family and I just stumbled upon this movie as a gift this last Christmas. I was blown away. It reminded so much of when i was little and watched Beauty and the Beast, or Little Mermaid. Filled to the brim with Disney fairy-tail-ness. smile.gif Anyone who may have misssed it, check it out. Really fun movie.

Yeah it's a great movie. I have no problem at all recommending it to anyone who's a fan of animation or fairy tales. It's not at all a "girly" Disney movie like I thought it was going to be at first. Definitely glad I bought it.

I definitely did not expect to like it, because of its obvious tween girl pitch. Surprisingly good writing, design, and animation.

Much better than "Brave," which I found to be way overrated and more in line with weaker fare like "Brother Bear," "Treasure Planet," and "Atlantis." Who'd a thunk it? Lowly Disney Animation Studios one-up's the mighty PIXAR!!

After "Cars 2" and "Brave," I hope this doesn't mean a downward spiral for PIXAR. They seem to have gone sequel crazy. Lasseter losing his deft touch?

I worry about that too, and I agree, as much as it pains me, that Tangled is better than Brave. With Wall-E and Up, I could believe that Pixar had movie making down to a science, and at least knew how not to screw up.

Monsters 2 could really define the pattern or break it.

I would certainly like to see more Tangled like moves from Disney (not Pixar). There is a Disney magic that has been lost since probably Lion King or maybe Hunchback if you want to be generous, that is directly connected with good/evil fairytale and MUSIC! Even though Tangled was a bit light on music compared to some of the greats like Lion King, Aladdin, LM, etc. it had that Alan Menken magic. Kids love this, they are mezmorized by the music, they sing along, get the sing along books, etc. It is just a great part of the Disney magic that really needs to be ingrained in more of their animated films.

I really enjoyed Tangled but the music was easily the weakest part for me. I could have done entirely without it.

Just like in Monty Python and the Holy Grail... the characters start to look wistful and lift their heads in joyful song ... the background music swells... and someone yells out: STOP THAT!! STOP THAT!!! STOP IT!!!!! THERE'LL BE NO SINGING HERE!!!!! And they immediately clam up. biggrin.gif
