Moana (2016)

Disney movies just keep inspiring! The musical bits are awesome, the nature - the realm of isles, the endless blue, the mixture of nature and Godly: all of it's amazing.

The story is that of a Chief's daughter, who seems destined for the ocean, but whose father just won't let her go beyond the reef... and yet the ocean beckons. The fish are disappearing. Nature is shriveling. A darkness is spreading, and when one day she hears the legend of the demigod Maui, and how he caused the blight by stealing the heart of the goddess, Te Fiti, and that the only way to heal the island is to persuade Maui to return Te Fiti's heart - which she's been given by the ocean as a child, not knowing what it was, it all falls into place. Her grandmother, on her deathbed tells her to go, and so she does.

It's an adventure! And not only so perfectly scripted, but with such awesome ties to foreign mystery and (I assume) Hawaiian culture. Correction: it's Polynesian mythology. The names, the nature, the ancestry and cycle of life - the way it all comes to closure, and most of all the call to find yourself and find your calling, it all seems to call to me.

It's a story of self-realization, and good versus evil with a twist. A modern day fairy tale without all them fairy's, no forced romance, a shiny crab, and Dwayne The Rock Johnson as Demo-God Maui!

Auli'i Cravalho plays Moana, and... most of the movie is mostly them. Which is great, because they're great.

Script, narrative, story, humor, music - it's all as good as it gets, the music especially. It's light-hearted, likable, logic, mythical, and with plenty of momentum and emotion when it counts. You're Welcome. Well, thank you!

Not only do I love water - which a large portion of this movie features, but also the message, and the theme. Not to mention the theme songs. Catchy as coconuts. It's definitely my favorite Disney movie of the year.... maybe decade. Don't let the cover fool you: there's no age limit. It's a much reccomended; great watch.

Moana (2016)

A testament to humanity. A homage to Mother Earth. A tale of truth and magic, of which we leave behind all too little these days.

The songs didn't seem quite as amazing this time around as last time I watched this, but what a movie! Still maybe my favorite Disney one ever.
