YASSSSSSSS!!!!! This movie is my JAM! First off, it finally depicts women’s hair at the beach semi-accurately. Everyone always thinks that when women jump into the ocean and whip their hair out, that it’ll look like Ariel’s red luscious locks or Jasmine’s ridiculously volumous (yes that’s a word) waves! This is not a drill! Real ocean hair is sticky, sandy, knotty, and literally never looks good. Props to Moana for keeping ocean hair REAL! Only took animators 90 years to get it right, nice job!
Second, I love this movie because a mute chicken has a lead role. Meaning there’s a place in a movie for everyone. Thirdly, the ocean is a real character! It nods, saves people, and reveals pretty shells on command! CAN THIS MOVIE GET ANY BETTER?!
Actually it can. But it’s just these two itty-bitty things that would change this movie from a great film to a Masterpiece: 1) Don’t have Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson sing and 2) Don’t have Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson sing.
Popcorn Rating: 5 popped corns
If you haven’t seen this movie yet you probably don’t have siblings and/or live under a rock. Watch this movie and enjoy the Pacific Islander version of a fantastic Disney/Pixar non-princess animated classic!!
