Movie Reviews

A True Classic
D. Gray | Las Vegas, USA | 05/03/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was one of my favorites growing up, and everyone around me that I have shared it with has fallen in love with it. The story is about the adventurous Princess Irene. The princess is off playing in the woods when she is attacked by goblins pets. She is saved by a mining boy named Curty. They quickly become friends and get into a lot of trouble. The goblins attack and Irene must rely on her own magic to save Curty, and in turn the entire kingdom. (Yes the story has a happy ending ^^ )

The story teaches the importance of believing in yourself, friendship, not keeping things inside, and the power of a song. I would recommend this story to any child boy or girl. However, there are a few scary parts in this movie, nothing bad compared to what kids are exposed to these days but I would advise that the parents sit and watch the movie with that child the first time through just in case it doesn't met that parent's pretence. (There is a spot where the ground starting moving at the beginning and a hand comes out and grabs her. Of course she gets away! If your child can handle the movie The Black Cauldron, then this movie is fine!)

One warning to parents, this movie becomes a quick favorite, so I would advise ear plugs because the movie has been known to be played so a lot.

I would recommend this to any child; I hope this review has been helpful!
Fun Movie

"This is a good movie and the Goblin's are not scary to kids...just funny. It is a little lengthy, but you certainly get your money's worth of drama, excellent cartoonage and music."

"I've loved this movie since I was a kid and was thrilled to see it on dvd for one very important reason...SUBTITLES! Finally I was able to read the real words for the song Curdy sings! I've been trying to figure the words out for years."
Somewhat suprised.

"I have just recently re-watched this movie and found myself suprised that it was not so painful to sit through, it was actually rather amusing to me.

I had watched this movie when I was very, very young and, like most old cartoons I loved so much as a kid, I expected it to be very annoying and corny like some of my other 'childhood favorites' [example: Scamper]... ok I admit it's still corny but not all that annoying, the worst part was probably the boy's singing.

There is plenty of action, though the movie is long, and is a good watch for any child. I would recommend it and plan on happily adding to to my odd stock of DVDs."
