What would you think of me now? So lucky, so strong so proud
picspam; top 5 disney movies of my childhood 
16th-Feb-2010 04:53 pm
Okay, this turned out to be one EPIC project for the challenge over at picspammy. Seriously, about 200-300 images per movie, even if they are not that big.
So be warned that this might take a while to load!

Mushu: Beautiful, isn't it?
Mulan: They're disgusting.
Mushu: No, they're men.

Mushu: The truth is we're both frauds. Your ancestors never sent me, they don't even like me. But you risked your life to help people you love. I risked your life to help myself. At least you had good intentions.
[Cri-Kee chirps sadly at Mushu]
Mushu: What? What do you mean you're not lucky? You lied to me?
Mushu: [to Mulan's horse] And what are you, a sheep?


This was the first and I even think only Disney-movie from my childhood I actually watched at the cinema first. I completely adored Mushu and his sarcastic comments. Mulan's soldier friends were basically made of awesome. And I love how the love-story is more in the background, that the most important thing is that Mulan, a woman, managed to save a whole country against all odds.
Also, just look at the pretty!

Aladdin: [saving Jasmine from an irate merchant] Thank you, kind sir. I'm so glad you found her. I've been looking all over for you.
Princess Jasmine: [whispering] What are you doing?
Aladdin: [whispering] Just play along.
Man in market: You, uh, know this girl?
Aladdin: Sadly, yes. She is my sister. She's a little crazy.
Man in market: She said she knew the sultan.
Aladdin: She thinks the monkey is the sultan.
Princess Jasmine: [bowing to Abu] Oh, wise sultan, how may I serve you?
Aladdin: Tragic, isn't it? But, no harm done. Now, come along, sis. Time to go see the doctor.
Princess Jasmine: [to a camel] Oh, hello, doctor. How are you?
Aladdin: No, no, no. Not that one.

Genie: Thank you for choosing "Magic Carpet" for all your travel needs. Don't stand until the rug has come to a complete stop. Thank you. Goodbye, now. Goodbye. Goodbye, thank you. Goodbye.
[back to normal]
Genie: Well, how about *that*, Mr. Doubting Mustafa?
Aladdin: Oh, you sure showed me. Now about my three wishes...
Genie: Dost mine ears deceive me? "Three?" You are down by one, boy!
Aladdin: Ah, no, I never actually wished to get out of the cave. Heh. You did that on your own.
[the Genie's mouth drops]
Genie: Oh. Well I feel sheepish.
[turns into a sheep]
Genie: All right, you baaaaaad boy. But no more freebies.


Why is this on my list and not a different movie? Well, the main reason is probably the story in itself. I remember that I went on a school excursion in elementary school to watch this as a play. I think this was my very first theatre play. Anyway, I got to sit beside the boy I liked and the whole experience was just kinda magical. Naturally, I adored this movie as well.
But it's also great because it's on of those movies that doesn't take itself too seriously. Genie is just so hilarious and makes so many pop-culture references!
Also, I like how it's actually the man who is going after the woman, not the other way around and how Aladdin realizes that he should just be himself to win the girl over.

Narrator: Once upon a time, in a faraway land, a young prince lived in a shining castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter's night, an old beggar woman came to the castle and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away. But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautiful enchantress. The prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, for she had seen that there was no love in his heart. And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous beast and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his 21st year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return by the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?

Beauty and the Beast. Well, it's just a great love story and Belle is basically one of my favourite "princess" ever. She's stubborn, she loves to read, she doesn't fall for the handsome guy if he's a jerk and she agrees to live with a Beast just to protect her father but won't let him frighten her into submission. Probably one of the strongest female characters Disney ever produced.
Also, the songs are awesome, the images are just really pretty and I totally want to have a library like the Beast's!
And I remember playing with toys from this movie.

Arthur: There, now you see? I'm not a squirrel, I'm a boy.
[the girl squirrel chirps as if asking a question]
Arthur: I tried to tell you. I'm, I'm a boy. A human boy!
[the girl squirrel climbs up to a knot on her tree and sniffs]
Arthur: Oh! If you could only understand.
[the girl squirrel runs up to the hole in the tree and cries her heart out as Arthur remorsefully walks away]
Merlin: You know, lad, that love business is a powerful thing.
[the girl squirrel, sobbing, watches Arthur slowly walk away]
Arthur: Greater than gravity?
Merlin: Well yes, boy, in its way... yes, I'd say it's the greatest force on earth.

Arthur: I'm in an awful pickle. I'm king!
Archimedes the Owl: He pulled the sword from the stone.
Merlin: Ha ha! Of course, of course. King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.
Arthur: Round table?
Merlin: Oh, would you rather have a square one?
Arthur: Oh, no. Round will be fine


Dude, I know that this is technically not a movie of my childhood, but I still watched it when I was a child and anyway, there never could have been a list of my top five Disney movies without this one! It's totally epic. You have Arthur and Merlin, valuable lessons in the form of being transformed into animals, a wolf that basically serves as a comic relief and totally reminds me of the old Bugs Bunny coyote just without his road-runner. Oh, and of course an epic battle of the wits between Merlin and Madame Mim.
I have always loved this movie to bits. I remember my friends and me having some sort of nostalgic Disney movie night a few years back and most of them didn't even know this movie. I totally made them watch it and they loved it just as much as I did.
And btw, am I the only one who thinks that Merlin might have just traveled forward in time after being done with Arthur to become a certain headmaster for a school of witchcraft and wizardry? I'm not the only one seeing the resemblance here, am I?

Ariel: [sung] I don't know when
I don't know how
But I know something's starting right now
Watch and you'll see
Some day I'll be
Part of your world.


Ariel: Is he - dead?
Scuttle: [Opens Eric's eyelid] It's hard to say.
[Puts his ear against Eric's foot]
Scuttle: Oh, I - I can't make out a heartbeat.


I guess this one's on my list because I watched it all the time when I was little. We had it on a copied VHS until somebody in my family decided to record something else on the VHS *sigh* Still, it has such awesome songs in it; probably my second favourite one (after "Colours of the Wind" from Pocahontas which unfortunately didn't make the list) is "Part of your World". Arielle swimming towards the light while singing with so much longing and hope somehow always moves me to tears.
I think there was also a TV show about this later that I fuzzily recall watching on TV all the time.
And can I just say that Ursula is one scary bitch! Oh, and Prince Eric is definitely swoon-worthy =)



Movies that I liked as well, but just didn't make the list:

Pocahontas,
Junglebook,
Hercules,
101 Dalmatians,
Robin Hood

And I know this is probably blasphemy but no Lion King. I have only seen it once in my life and can't even really remember it properly. I have always planned on watching it again at some point but just haven't gotten around to it somehow. Maybe it is time I'll buy the DVD.


That's it. Hope you liked it. Please do not hot-link or take any of the images. It took me ages to do this picspam. Comments are ♥

Resources: Mulan, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin caps all from here.
The Little Mermaid and The Sword in the Stone caps from here.

16th-Feb-2010 04:16 pm (UTC)
Wow this is sooo awesome! ♥ I miss those "old" disney movies!
16th-Feb-2010 04:33 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

Yeah, Disney movies were way better back then!

Thanks!
16th-Feb-2010 04:56 pm (UTC)

All your choices are awesomee!Beautify and the best will forever be my favorite disney book/movie, i love it so much!And everything else, they make me all warm and fuzzy inside :D
And your picspam is GORGEOUS, so colorful and beautiful, brilliant job! <333
17th-Feb-2010 11:44 am (UTC)
Aw, thank you!

I know, even though some of the newer movies are good as well, they just never seem to be able to compete with the "classics"...
16th-Feb-2010 06:14 pm (UTC)
This picspam is so beautiful! and damn I haven't seen the sword in the stone in a longass time
17th-Feb-2010 11:45 am (UTC)
Thank you!

You should definitely watch it again, it's too awesome not to =)
16th-Feb-2010 06:18 pm (UTC)
ooooo..cute!!!
i love aladdin and the little mermaid...but my fav one is Dumbo...i still cry when i watch it
17th-Feb-2010 11:47 am (UTC)
Thanks!

Uhm, I think I've only seen Dumbo once when I was a child. I can barely remember anything from it except that it is about an elephant who can fly with his ears ^^
16th-Feb-2010 06:51 pm (UTC)
I can only imagine how long this took! It's beautiful!

I never really got into Aladdin, but I completely adored the other four. Mulan especially; I think it's probably in the top five Disney movies, ever, because the story is so great and I agree that I love how the love story is more in the background. Good stuff. :D

And do try and see Lion King again, and definitely the Lion King sequel, too! It's my favorite sequel Disney's ever done (and I like it better than the original LK, to be honest), and can't recommend it enough. ^^

Thanks for a beautiful spam!
17th-Feb-2010 11:52 am (UTC)
Dude, you have no idea how long it took me! But you develop some sort of system after the first two movies so it wasn't that bad ^^

What was Aladdin for you was Lion King for me. I just never got the chance to see it again after the first time and then for some years I just didn't watch any Disney movies. Maybe they weren't cool or something. Well, I guess now I really really have to check it out again =D

And of course, I'm glad you liked it!

I know right? Epic was totally the first word that came to my mind once I saw the finished product =)

I can't understand how somebody could NOT love Sword in the Stone. Of course it's awesome!

NO, OF COURSE HE DOESN'T DIE!! HE JUST WENT TO ANOTHER TIME, THAT'S ALL!

Thanks for the comment, btw ^^
16th-Feb-2010 07:46 pm (UTC)

17th-Feb-2010 11:56 am (UTC)
Thanks!
16th-Feb-2010 09:01 pm (UTC)
Oh, this is amazing! It must've taken you forever. It's beautiful. :D
17th-Feb-2010 11:56 am (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, it took me a while =)
16th-Feb-2010 09:34 pm (UTC)
This is an EPIC picspam.

The screencaps are GORGEOUS. Really ace! :D:D:D

And now I want to go watch Beauty and the Beast again.
Even though I watched it like... last night.
17th-Feb-2010 11:57 am (UTC)
Hehe, I know =)

Thank you!

And you can never watch Beauty and the Beast enough. Or like, any of the classic Disney movies ;)
16th-Feb-2010 11:44 pm (UTC)
The Sword in The Stone!!! It totally made me happy to see this cause usually i hardly see it in people's list whereas i love it!
Gorgeously made all around :)
17th-Feb-2010 11:59 am (UTC)
I know! When I thought of this picspam, I just knew I had to integrate it. It is totally made of win! Although it was kinda hard to only limit it to only four more movies =)

Thank you!
17th-Feb-2010 12:14 am (UTC)
This is so stunning! I adore the titles especially. <333 (Also, you have excellent taste in movies!)
17th-Feb-2010 12:00 pm (UTC)
Thank you!
I tried to do something different with the titles so I appreciate it that you like them!
17th-Feb-2010 01:03 am (UTC)
This is stunning! Great choice of movies, and thanks for sharing - this must have taken forever! Sword in the Stone deserves more love.
17th-Feb-2010 12:01 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

Sword in the Stone deserves more love.
Definitely! It's overlooked way too many times! I can't understand why though, it's simply awesome!
17th-Feb-2010 07:34 am (UTC)
this is EPIC, dude. EPIC!

Mulan is my favourite. and if this were my picspam, I'd have to put Robin Hood on it, but oh man I have no idea which of these I'd take out to make room. :D
17th-Feb-2010 12:05 pm (UTC)
Hehe dude, I KNOW!!

Yeah, Robin Hood was under my last 7 but unfortunately didn't make it. It was one of those movies that I watched constantly when I was little =) Still, I had to choose only five *sigh*
17th-Feb-2010 04:47 pm (UTC)
lovely picspam ♥ ♥
17th-Feb-2010 06:17 pm (UTC)
wow, you weren't kidding when you said this was image heavy! lolol.

i agree with your picks 100%
although, i still haven't seen mulan 100% of the way through (just bits on tv and the songs my friend made me watch on youtube, lolol) and i never saw little mermaid as a kid, my friends made me watch it last month... i'm 22 LOL!

even so, i agree with these top 5. they are definitely the ones i remember and the ones i grew up with watching and hearing about. most of my friends would say little mermaid was their fave but beauty and the beast always stole my heart, and for all the reasons you mentioned about belle being such a strong character. i love her. she's my idol (just on the quiet, shh :P).

i'm so happy someone else loves sword in the stone! it's one of the rarer ones but i had it on tape and i'd watch it all the time as a kid. the name Archimedes inspired me as a child to learn about the real Archimedes and it helped in sparking my interest in ancient history, hehe, nerdy much?

and aladdin is just ♥ he is adorable and amazing as a main character. i love the songs and i love robin williams as the voice of the genie, completely ridiculous and hilarious, he's basically just being himself, but as the genie the animation changes to follow all the random hilarious tangents he goes off into and it works SO well, genius casting.

♥ ♥
18th-Feb-2010 03:12 pm (UTC)
I think this is the first time anyone's picked The Sword in the Stone! All I remember was being really sad over a certain scene, and years later, I see the squirrel scene on youtube and that was it! I lost the VHS so I don't remember much of the movie at all, now I definitely need to go back and watch the entire film.

Just going through this picspam brings back great memories! I didn't realize just how many times I've seen these movies because I recognize each cap, haha. Just beautiful!

Fantastic picspam.;)
