Tangled

I realize I'm really late to the game on this one, but I've recently fallen in love with the movie Tangled.  Like I've said before, I have no shame when it comes to watching movies repeatedly in the same week (or day #sorrynotsorry).  Even though it came out years ago, I only just now got around to watching it.  Honestly, if you haven't seen it you need to.  I don't care how old you are; my boyfriend and I are 20 and we both love it.
how adorable right?
Aside from being just absolutely freakin adorable, it's also very relatable.  One of my favourite scenes is when Rapunzel alternates between having no regrets about leaving the tower and being incredibly guilty about it (I've totally done that on more than one occasion)


I think Rapunzel is now my favourite Disney princess.  She's so innocent, yet sassy.  Somewhat helpless in the classic Disney way, but so resourceful at the same time.  She's definitely a more three dimensional character than Disney usually churns out.  I was really impressed at the complexity of the storyline, as well as how dark it got.  For once Disney stayed somewhat close to the original story (they don't stab Flynn's eyes out though, thank god, he was adorable).  I think since the story was a little darker than normal it made it easier for an older audience to stay engaged, but the humor and Rapunzel's demeanor were still light enough to entertain children.
Yeah I've had conversations like this too
I recommend everyone watch this movie.  The end made me (and Doug) cry, it was that cute!  Besides, you'll learn just how useful a cast-iron pan can be.

Have you seen Tangled? What did you think? Let me know ;)
