From the astonishing and colorful images of its cinematography to its endearing characters, Moana captivates the attention and adoration of its audiences, including the most skeptical one.
Despite the fact that Moana does not follow the traditional Prince Charming story line, which is well used by feminist groups, Moana shows not only the beauty of the Pacific Islands culture but also a cute story of triumph and friendship.
I watched this show with my girls, and we enjoyed every minute of it.
Only two negatives for this movie.
- In one scene Moana seems to refrained herself from swearing a real bad word. The writer seems to think that will give the character more personality and assertiveness. I disagree! Leave kids alone when it comes to this influence.
- I love music, but sometimes to much of it is tiresome, specially if the songs seem to follow the same format and tone… Maybe one or two are good enough! let’s just hear the story without using music to tell it so much! I get it, LaLa Land is a musical and won an Oscar, but movies are more real when the characters speak and not sing.
