Movie Monday

This week's movie topic is all about Animation...
Share movies whose drawn, digitized or old school clay figures rock your world, linking back here at the Bumbles.

I never was a big fan of animated films when I was growing up. I preferred Mary Poppins and Thomasina to Bambi or Snow White.

So imagine my surprise when I found myself captivated by Beauty and the Beast. My niece was obsessed with Belle and made me watch it. I, too, thought Belle was a fabulous role model for little girls. Then there's Lumiere. As a big Law & Order fan, I found it amazing that my Lennie had been a legendary Broadway star, and here's one of his musical performances (Lumiere) preserved on film.

And last, I'm a sucker for a love story. And this is a lovely one. "Both a little scare
d, neither one prepared … ever just the same, ever a surprise …" See? I'm getting verklempt just thinking about it.

  1. I love discovering terrific animated movies through our nieces, nephews and friends' kids. They think it is pretty cool that I know all the movies they like and that I will willingly sit and watch them with them. Of course, I am not subjected to them over and over and over like their parents...
