So. Saludos Amigos.
I’m actually a little unsure of what to say about this movie. Let me start off by saying, that overall, generally, I liked it. I enjoyed it. I thought the story was cute, and the animation reminded me of classic cartoons. Also I enjoyed seeing some of the original Disney gang (growing up Goofy was always my favorite, so I loved seeing him). I also really liked the Pedro the plane bit. Not sure why, I just found him adorable.
All of that being said Saludos Amigos definitely was not one of my favorites, thus far, and is actually probably pretty low on the list of movies I’ve watched so far for this project. It just felt awkward. I read that Disney intended each of the 4 shorts to be stand alone cartoons, so all of the rest of the stuff, the filler that was put in between the cartoons to give back story and attempt to give it flow, felt just like that. Filler. Also it was short. Really really short. Like I think it just barely hit the 40 minute mark, which makes it hard for blogging (of course that’s nothing really against the movie, just my own frustrations).
So over all, yes, I liked Saludos Amigos. However, it is far from being a favorite. Do you guys have any thoughts or opinions?
