(Man does that face crack me up!)
Finally, we go to the songs, which are also my final major problem with the movie. While they do tell the story, they're sadly very bland and forgettable. In "The Princess And The Frog", despite the songs being not memorable, I still enjoyed them greatly, while I was listening to them. Here, I was actually bored and unamused by the film’s songs. Rapunzel's "Want Song" called "When Will My Life Begin?" while having some great visuals and giving you a perfect background of how she lives with herself in the Tower after all these years; the song sounds like a bland Pop tune that you would hear on the Disney Channel starring a musical celebrity, instead of feeling like a Disney Fairy Tale song. We even get another bland Pop tune during that beautiful sequence with the lights called "I See The Light", which nearly killed this beautiful and atmospheric sequence for me. The villain song "Mother Knows Best", while visually good and giving us a good background at how Gothel keeps Rapunzel in the Tower like "When Will My Life Begin", as well as Murphy putting a lot of energy into the song she's singing; the song is forgettable and is actually pretty obnoxious. However, I think the most pointless and obnoxious song in the whole movie is "I Have A Dream" sung by the Thieves. I like the idea for the scene, and laughed at some of the humor, but as a whole I found myself really annoyed by it, as well as rolling my eyes at half of the song's forced jokes. The only song I did like was the song that the characters sing to the flower and Rapunzel's hair to be healed. It's beautiful, enchanting, atmospheric, and does match with the traditional Disney Fairy Tale charm.
So that's my review on "Tangled" and while I do find it to be very overrated with the obvious feeling that I'm listening to actors in a recording studio; having very obnoxious and unfunny humor; songs that are very bland and forgettable; and being a Fairy Tale World that's not all that imaginative, I still give the film credit for the things that it does achieve. Rapunzel is a great female lead; the villain is awesome; the Computer Animation is very impressive on a handful of occasions; and the story is great! Not what I personally consider to be a great Disney film, but the film has enough potential to make it worth seeing, and despite finding the film to be overrated, I would still watch the film again for the things that it did succeed in.
