The Sword In The Stone
I just finished watching this movie, and it seemed brand new to me, since I haven't seen it since I was really little. It was good. Really funny, actually, and I chuckled in a few parts, even laughed out of control in some. It's funny, but I thought there was a few issues. I thought that Wart was being mistreated too cruelly, and that washing the dishes for 4 hours was not exactly appropriate for a "kids" movie. Also, my mom said I was afraid of Madame Mim when I was little and I can understand that, because she transforms herself into some pretty creepy things and screams "I'M GOING TO HAVE TO DESTORY YOU!". Mom said, "I never remembered THAT part!" And after that, she chases Wart (Wart is a bird and Madame Mim is a cat). But the film, otherwise, is really funny. Kids will enjoy the wolf that tries to attack Wart, who frantically tries to bite Wart on the leg, and just misses when Wart walks away, unaware of the wolf. And they'll like how Wart and Mervin turn into various animals, and the funny magic. But don't forget that Wart is supposably King Arthur, and when Wart/Arthur is king at the end of the movie, parents, tell your kid(s) that "Wart" is a real person. But also remind them that the movie is a legend, and that they won't turn into fish, or squirrels, or birds.
