Here we go for #3 in the Disney lineup, and already we've run into something I don't know. What is "Fantasia?" It's a kickass title is what it is, and fantasy is obviously involved. Also from the DVD there's Mickey Mouse and he looks like a wizard. Do I get to finally see a Mickey movie?! :D
I was expecting a lot more fairy tales before we hit new territory, so whatever this movie is it's already kind of a surprise. I guess it's the story of... Mickey Mouse being a wizard? I could probably get behind that. Depends what else is in there, I suppose. Lacy's hiding the case from me but I already saw the front so nyah, Jeremy wins and the pixie is defeated. Anyway, Lacy is just giddy with excitement and a couple of the comments I saw said that people have high expectations out of this one, so... enough dawdling? Enough dawdling. LET US FANTASIA :D
Still a great name.
Orchestra opening, that's different.
It's all bluuuuuuue. I like blue.
Is this a new production company logo? Cause it's taking an awful long time
Is this the movie?
She's mocking me now.
She's throwing bits of food at me now.
Hi there Deans Taylor.
Ahh, this is like an intro bit
I AM SO ON BOARD WITH THIS
STORIES, PICTURES AND PURE MUSIC
This could be very very very awesome or very very very terrible
This sounds super trippy.
Heh, he makes colors appear.
Ahh I know this piece BASSBASSBASSS...
This is much less fantastical than I was led to hope.
Still silhouettes of violinists, for the record
I like that with the bows piercing through the clouds
Oh this is the part I really enjoy too
The smooth flying bow shapes and bridges
Lilting circles in the air...
love the strings followed by their shadows over the hills
ice paths winding through the air
don't understand the shine on the ripples
oh that bit is powerful and then sort of clouds on their ends like mountains in the sky and stained glass windows...
...a molar just walked away from me sullenly
LIGHT FROM THE HEAVENS
and now it's just crashing up like waves in the sky
I CONDUCT FROM INSIDE A SUNSET
Well that improved. Heya Deens
TCHAIKOVSKY NUTCRACKERS NUTCRACKER ARE WE DOING CHRISTMAS MUSIC
They're going to animate the Nutcracker??? :D
Then what? More abstracts?
gives me shivers every time
are they putting dew on things they totally are
there's something absolutely magical about how much the images match with the music. I could easily forget what this actually was
it's almost eerie an so very hypnotic
spiderweb coated successfully
AND BOOM GO THE FAIRIES
Dancing mushrooms OH IT'S THIS ONE :D
hehe they're little dancers with the tiny button one
Their heads change size
oh let him in, come on guys
Yeah you'd better bow, tiny mushroom has NO TIME FOR YOUR SHIT
The music is just so good
haha they're like dancing ladies
clever how they pick out the "star" from the others with the unique color
underwater cave DAGON TIME okay that was a little eerie
It's only fish but with the music it feels sinister
ALSO WITH THE DARKNESSES
Fancy goldfish. Cleo's older sister? :D
I'll give them this, the movements are exactly as sinuous as the music. Great word that one
RUSSIAN DANCING TO THE BEST PART OF THE NUTRCARCKER I AM ON BAORD WIRLL ALL OF THIS :D :D :D
WHEEEE that was great :D
I spy fairy wings
What are hmmm autumn they're painting the leaves
gold, all of them wooooow that was a pretty transition
leaves lilting on the wind to a clarinet and now they're dancing :D
hee playing on the feather things
don't get what these white things are supposed to INTENSE STRINGS NOW
most dramatic leaves I've seen in a while
I cannot get over how much is going on on the screen
these must be winter fairieyep
love the frost skating
I really miss skating
okay everything here is I am completely on board with this is splendid
LOOK ATHE SNOWFLAEKS
haha they're inside the flakes :D
NO DON'T BE OVerrrrrrrrr blah

Magic Mickey time?
Oh this sounds very promising
Oh this sounds REALLY fun
kind of wish he hadn't told me now though
well that's eerie. That guy looks crazy intense
love how expressive he is
this music is mad eerie
AND NOW IT IS A BUTTERFLNOPE NOW IT IS NOTHING.
that is a hat of power.
way to look stern, Mickey :D
I love how expressive he is
easiest Animate Objects ever
Hello mr Broom
okay this theme right here? Love it
matches every beat so perfectly :D
and still eerie at the same time :D
Hahahaa happy broom
the twinkly bit is amazingly jaunty
BUM BAH bumbumbum...
ah crap there he goes
Astral Projection much?
Mickey, you shouldn't screw around with the cosmos. S'rude
Yeah he just blew up stars for fun
and now he's commanding the tides
methinks the wizard could do with a less totally power-crazy apprentice
Way to wish you could summon giant FLOOD OH MY SMOKED CABABAGE
someone forgot the Off button
earth elemental spirit rolled a 1
WHOA WITH THE VIOLENCE
ahhhh crap hahahahahaha you can already see where this is going
Listen to the music Mickey, you should know WHERE DID THEY ALL GET BUCKETS
FULL BUCKETS no less
"wait, I've heard that music somewhere before..."
yeah that'll help
Broom is best characted
I love how the brass seemed to match a cry of "HELP"
man you are going to be in SHIT\
where did you even get a whirlpool from
oh here we go
wizard has NO TIME FOR YOUR SHIT, water
that was bubbling did he BOIL it away
you deserved that
is THAT what Mickey sounds like???
ahhh that was a lot of fun I'm grinning like an idiot
nice going bud
"nothing in particular," eh? I think that "science" you refer to miiiight disagree
wait are we doing animated dinosaurs to music? this could rock
"bullies and gangsters?" REALLY??? there's this thing about talking down to your audience. Learn.
boy that whole intro really just harshes you out
I see a galaxy. Guess Dream Mickey Mage missed this one.
Nebula, really badly animated sun, dragonfire, nebula again, Mickey screwing around with more comets, a planet that is red eating a snack...
I found volcanoes
one of which has fireworks in it cause why not
that one has a firebreathing tornado in it. Of course it does
who wrote this music and can I slap them
AND THEN THEY ALL WENT OFF AT ONCE and the music went subdued again
I infer from watching this that magma is often red
it's weird, the backgrounds look so nice but the magma looks so... nope
that was a very unusual brass riff
did broomsticks do this, too?
panning downward slowly has rarely been quite so dramatically scored
I found unicellular life
How's it going, neighbor? How bout them amoebas
Meiosis is INTERRUPTED BY A CLOUD OF DOOM that... brings the far realm to the world
AND A SECOND CLOUD OF DOOM turns everything into creepy sea life THIRD CLOUD OF DOOM evolution is easy when you have the forces of ultimate evil on your side, apparently
hey there fish
"Fuck this noise, up I go": and suddenly he's a turtle in dinosaur land
with early alligator dragons
just out here eatin' fish and panning upward lazily to reveal bigfaceodactels, you?
just chillin' in midair to flute trills
MY YOUR HEAD
and that, boys and girls, is how jungles are made
YAAAAAWN hey it's a triceratops
"you're obviously some kind of snack tree. Now hold still"
All these dinosaurs are real dicks hen it comes to food
man steggo you have a tiny tiny head
THERE THEY GO AGAIN. Perfectly good leaves below but nope, tastes so much better when I get it FROM YOUR MOUTH
try getting something outta his mouth. I dare you
the lighting and layout is pretty awesome here
NO TIME FOR YOUR SHIT
that stegosaurus looks gigantic
What does your neck taste STILL NOT TIME FOR YOUR SHIOT
How many times is it going to die. Seriously.
that was surprisingly anticlimactic
annnd now everything is very dry
mud't not all that tasty, is it
I don't know that I've mentioned it yet but I actually really, truly, detst this music
DOOM CLOUD: LAND EDITION
guess you guys are about to evolve again
seems like a step back oh yes I made that pun who's going to stop me Lacy can't I didn't say it out loud
you've all evolved into skeletons. I feel like this is not a success
"just gonna fill in this one spot in the sky, don't mind us"
apparently now that all the dinosaurs are dead the Earth is just... rocking out MADE THAT PUN TOO
oh good the main leitmotif is back cause you know I wasn't any kind of tired of that
and now there's an eclipse because when you have an apocalypse, overkill is best
are we done?
THANK. FUCK. Intermission ahoy
was this normal for movies at a certain era? Cause I've never seen a film with an intermission
hahaha yesssss light jazzy music for the intermission
that was all kinds of not fifteen minutes
I found... a line
Hello Sound Track
Ahhhh that's cool how they visualize the harp sound with the ripples I mean all sound does that but still
rounded and middle for the flute, fair
oh yeah that's trumpet alright :D
AHAHAHA the flubbing at the ends
triangle was a bit on the nose
Ah, more Beethoven :D
Don't think I know the 6th.
OOOOOH this sounds very promising I am completely on board with this
Again, kind of wish he wasn't "centaurettes?" really?
I was plugging my ears. Tired of him telling me everything. S'rude
oh that's pleasant
UNICORNS THAT ARE BABIES I WANT TO something manly

Nightmare Pegasus has arrived and there's swan Pegasus. Dad and mom?

the parents are so incredibly stately and THERE ARE JUST MARBLE PILLARS FOR FUN NOW AREN'T THERE
JUST OUT IN A LAKE
WE'RE GREEK WHAT DO WE CARE holy smokes that's quite a number
hehehe diving foals
man he got better at that in a hurry
I've had some fine days when the sky was that color
foreground could use work there with the flowers and leaves
hm, different movement? I see some "centaurettes"
WHO ARE TOPLESS WELL THEN
my inner 6-year old is chortling rigorously and my inner 12-year old is very confused right now
this was considered appropriate? Oh sure NOW the foliage is hiding them but hot damn those are risky outfBUTTS, BUTTS EVERYWHERE
the little cupids are trmenedously cute
that hat is just silly
WHY ARE YOU WEARING DOVES
oh sure they'll just stay like that on your head, no problem lady
MENS IS HERE
love the natural foliage forming curtains, it's tremendously silly
"I'm blue with blond hair. Wanna date?"
Why is everybody strange colors?
How did I not notice this earlier
meanwhile the cupid fairies are just everywehre being super pleased with themselves
the human(oid) art style has definitely improved but I feel like they're still off somehow. the blue one with the black hair looks pretty good though
GODDAMN CUPIDS STOP BEING AGORABLE
I think you may both have a very serious case of not-breathing. You're blue
"Lookit us guys we're awesome. Good work sir."
okay well those are just regular curtains now stop being a peeping top and making your butt into a heart
oh this one ins instantly appealing :D
and trip-l-et tri-pl=-et trip-l-et
oh the strings crashing in as they look into the vat is the best thing
complete with drunken uni-donkey
still not happy to see donkeys after the whole wait mayeb that's supposed to be Bachhus himself
um, whuy did the music switch to suck mode
hahahahah the donkey hop dance
LADY CHASING TIME
ahh there we... sumble back into the main theme
DOOM CLOUD. You're all gonna evolve

Bacchus when someone asks if you'r ea god you say YES. It's even true

"If you will not be sober... you will be DESTROYED"
way to waste all the wine ever, Zeus
"EVERYTHING HAS TURNED INTO WINE, MY LIFE IS COMPLETE"

just gonna casually throw these wherever, not like it matters
and so, off doth fuck the doom cloud and the sky Emperor
that's the clarinetiest horn I've ever heard
the primary colors are really striking there
how many different mythical creatures are here? Pegasi, unicorns, centaurs, satyrs, cupid baby fairy things, couple of gods
oh that's fantastic the rainbow
I CAN TAP DANCE
"I can totally get drunk on rainbows, you just watch me"
look at them changing colors this is all fantastic who did this I'm on board with all of it

sleep proper, new foal
it was all your fault Artemis, you gave Mickey all those ideas

ostriches doing ballet
and again the leader color-marked. I like it. Music's a bit placid

I have fruit GIVE US FRUIT here is fruit
oh come on fuck off girls, you're not dinosaurs
I know you're birds but it doesn't count
good job ladies. Way to greed your leader out of breakfasTHAT is a hippopotamus
with ballet shoes
why am I surprised who authorized my surprise and they ar wearing tutus of course they are
HER NOSE AND HER ARMPIT because of course that is how you do
admittedly the most graceful... ballet-dancing hippo... I've everseen
I like how a different instrument has takTUTUS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY
already?: alright, nap away then
eating grapes and not fancing very much is tiring work after all
those are elephants
Cleo stop being places
oh what are they up to AND THEY HAVE BALLET SHOES TOO
YYYYYOMP no bubbles for you
sure let's have bubble tutus, why not
bubbles lifting elephants. Wel that makes sand now one has got one stuck to its foot and the music is being ominous about it
oh come on that's not very nice
night is about to fall...
and a wind blows them away because elephants are very vulnerable to wind
who's going to be Night, now?
CREEPY GHOUL THINGS
lizards of some type
just behaving like creeps cause it's fun?
which one is the leadOh there he is
feather in his cap. Literally
welp. Things I didn't expect to see today: a crocodile with a crush on a ballet-dancing hippopotamus
that's gonna suck for you yup
hey she likes you back bud
I love how this could be the actual ballet with just a few esxceptions
and now we're chasing because HEY IT'S THIS SONG TOO!!!!
what the WHAM
Elephants and ostriches just get caught in the crossfire
NOT HOW HIDING BEHIND PILLARS WORKS
that's gonna be an issue, I can tell
guys stop being WHAT THE HELL DO YOU ELEPHANTS THINK YOU'RE DOING
Hippos 1, Crocs 0
all the ridicuoous poses annnnd boom goes the palace door
well that was loads of fun :D too short though
utterly different, eh? not gonna listen to him
MOUNTAIN and Ghostbusters-sounding strings and the moon
oh this is ominous as all hell I love it already
THE FUCK IS THAT
GUYS I FOUND SATAN AND whoooo there go long shadowy doom hands BATS
annnd he's conjuring the undead WHAT IS THIS MUSIC IT IS SHAKING MY BONES
the phantoms look like they're ehtereal or from another dimension somehw
like the animation doesn't fit and it's VERY eerie
DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH GHOSTS THERE
town's got a serious demon prince of the Abyss issue there
that just sounds like a hellish festival
the massive claws and yep those are demons straight up
"You know what? Nope."
DOOM CLOUD evolution time
what's he up to there
ladies made of fire
and he turns them into beasts and then into demons and wait there are two more demons than there were beasts hmmmm annd now just blue devils
this whole thing is fantastically sinistHE JUST SET HIMSELF ON FIRE
well why not, I suppose, FACE
he's got a lot of minions to just waste in the flames of Hell THOSE were boobs
this is impossibly sinister and wwwow you look bad when illuminated
I think your time is up, Asmodeuphistopheles
back to your holes, hellcritters
spirits return whence you belong
lot of yawning in this movie
screw this noise I am out of here
so wait is he just part of the mountain and can do that anytime he likes???!
waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too placid now
ah, a sacred procession
We thank you Lord that dawn showed up while the Demon Prince Satanael was dicking around
We don't thank you fir this bridge that hides our light except in reflection how doers that work exactly
oh this is Ave Maria
he was right, those two are like night and daaaaaah I see what you dod
couldn't have gotten a better hymn? For The Beauty Of The Earth is pretty bomby, coulda had that
I suppose the differing temps and styles are part of the point but it still looks like a whole bunch of bug-eyed puddings are just inching forward through the woods
ind of feels wrong at this point to have discernible lyrics of any sort, hoenstly
maybe I'm just ridiculous
well there's no maybe I am just ridiculous
Anguished and the something
What am I even looking at oh it's a break in the treeline
Hosts of darkness fade, eh
and so light triumphs again. Evil should learn to stop screwing around
wait that's it, isn't it?
IT JUST ENDS? OH COME ON
I WANT MORE
MORE OF THIS I WANT NOW. Except the dinosaurs. EVERYTHING ELSE
Okay well that's enough for me for now, I guess
wow, that was really something, though
like, just... I'll leave it at wow. Wow is right.
