I've been running this movie in my head since I saw it, and I haven't done that with a movie since I saw the Lion King...

I loved that aspect of it so much...the selflessness of Eugene's action, sacrificing his life so she can have one. Especially when paired with Mother Gothel's claim that outside the tower Rapunzel will only encounter selfishness, where in reality that selfishness was what kept her in the tower, and selfishness set her free...

Another pair of reasons why I'm obsessing over this...I'm getting married in June, and I'm reading lots about good relationships...and reflecting on my parents' broken relationship, which is in divorce courts right now. It really is selfishness that ultimately is the undoing of a relationship, and pure selfless giving that gives love its excitement, edge, and reality.

<3 tl:dr, I really really really want to see Tangled again. :D

I really wanted to see Tangled, but I have no one to see it with up here with me :(. I'll wait for the DVD.

Sorry to hear about your parents.

I'm picking it up on DVD, Nikki, so if you ever come into town for a movie night, I'm certain we could see if Anna'd be game too! :D I read your last post...thinking about you girl, my thoughts and prayers are with you!!

MQ: I've been thinking about what you said, and I concur...any belief system based on fear, based on keeping oneself in ignorance of other people, that the world is to be endured and not enjoyed...the tower's a good representation of that. Also, the fear of getting hurt...Mother Gothel is actually a supremely twisted villain when you think of it, moreso that any other disney villain. Even Maleficent, who's badass and everything, but at least you know where you stand with her (she hates you. end of story). Gothel twists the emotions, using the cruellest turns to get her selfish way.

I am really really overanalyzing a Disney movie. XD

Confucious says, life is like a wok. What you get out of it depends on what you put in.

It's funny what sticks with you, be it animated movies or fortune cookies, to live by.

Truth and wisdom can be found everywhere if we're willing to look, I think. :D

And fortune cookies, like Confucious himself, rock.
