Avenging-Hobbits


A nerd who thought it would be cool to, with the help of a few equally insane buddies adapt the entire Marvel Universe (with some DC Comics thrown in for kicks) with My Little Pony...wish me luck

    Perhaps I should undergo a reincarnation

    Its been tugging at me, but I've been seriously considering of reinventing my account.

    Basically, I'd create a new account, and then focus on that revised version of Harmony's Warriors I mentioned in my last blog post, and post it to that new account.

    Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

    First things first, I'm not dead.

    I've just been working on other things, and generally trying to collect my thoughts regarding Harmony's Warriors, since I've hit a horrific dry-spell.

    After much thought, and talk with the venerable and honorable nightcrawler-fan, I've decided it's best to do what's basically a low-key reboot/refurbishing of the Universe.

Review: Lady and the Tramp (1955) · 5:10pm Jul 4th, 2015

Note: This review was written yesterday, but FIMFic has been giving me trouble on my phone, so I'm posting it today.


Okay, so my mom and dad were watching Lady and the Tramp (its the movie they saw on their first date), and so, being a romantic sap, I joined them.

And I swear this is one of the most beautifully romantic films ever made.

The animation is amazingly subtle and fluid, and it uses the 2.35:1 aspect ratio brilliantly to give the film a beautiful sense of space and expanse. It the first animated film to use it, but you’d never know it. On top of that, the film stays almost entirely at ground level, meaning that most of the personality of the humans is expressed via body language and voice acting, and its great stuff.

The romance between Lady and Tramp is everything I love in a good romance, and a great subversion of the ‘All Girls Want Bad Boys’ trope, as the film shows how Tramp’s lifestyle isn’t a healthy one in the long term for either Lady or Tramp. Asides from the romance, the film has a memorable supporting cast, and the songs by Peggy Lee have long earned their place in the pop culture fabric.

So yeah, Lady and the Tramp is one of the most unabashedly romantic and beautifully gentle films ever made, and one of my all time favorite Disney films.
