The Black Cauldron (1985)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Family Film, Disney,
I really tried my hardest to like this movie as I hadn’t seen it before and I usually love all Disney Classics. However, I admit defeat that I have found one Classic that probably shouldn’t have been one. The narrative should have been captivating as it had a good basis for one. A young boy off on a quest to defeat an evil tyrant. Should have been good but I was confused and bored. The young girl, Eilonwy, was the most annoying and confusing! I still don’t know whether she was a Scullery Maid or a Princess. It wasn’t too clear, she seemed like a liar and I wasn’t convinced. Also the “cute” Gurgi (I still unsure what it is, is it an animal? Is it a magic creature?) was quite annoying though I did like what he did for the narrative (I won’t spoil 😛 ). There are no songs within this film either. The artwork / scenery colour was alright and the Villain; The Horned King was impressive 🙂 . Much scarier that many other villains and the best thing in the entire movie 😛 . Enjoy 🙂 .
I give this film 1 Stars out of 5!
