This was my first time watching this movie. I was curious about it as a whole, but I am happy to say I enjoyed it immensely. I do like the fact that the film is coming from the perspective of the film-makers, and the director was able to show us both sides of the story. The diversity in opinions is what makes this film so great. I liked that the film was not monolithic, but also the fact that it showed the diversity of opinion, and the fact that not everyone shared the same opinion. I think it also showed the 'fine line' between creative freedom and artistic freedom, and the effect it had on the narrative. For example, the elements of the film are based on visual metaphors. The first thing that comes to mind is the representation of the ocean. The metaphor of the ocean is to allow the ocean to keep its shape and then gradually open its mouth and swallow up everything that it comes across. The second is the metaphor of the gods and the two different ways they approach their respective gods. The one who is an angry god, in the hands of another, is a 'greedy' god who takes and devours his enemies and the one who is 'creative' or 'spiritual' is something that we have no control over and is simply a force of nature. Overall, I think that the first thing that the audience would learn from this film is that they have a right to their opinion. If they do not agree with another's opinion, then that is their right. That being said, I think that the second thing that the audience would learn from this film is the power of freedom. Freedom of speech is not always a right, but it is the right that every one should have. I hope that the next film will have a similar feel and style to this one, and I hope that the next film that comes out will be able to show the world that the arts have no right to be censored and are always free to be displayed.

In the late 90s and early 2000s, filmmakers were churning out incredibly popular films to cash in on the Disney princess craze. But they were all just piddling little flicks. This film is Disney's attempt to recapture the magic of the original Disney films and win back the hearts and minds of the audiences. Of course, not all Disney films were good, and it was a nightmare for the studio, so they tried to remaster and refresh them and we got the duds that they're known for. The result was a handful of gems and a ton of duds. It was the Disney Renaissance. What we have here is a film that's really enjoyable, for what it is. It's an ensemble piece that's based around three main characters. We have the heroine, Moana, who's also a navigator and a master storyteller. She has a romantic interest, an uncle, and a lot of navigator types. She runs away from an abusive father, gets an uncle to save her, and gets an uncle who is also an expert pilot to save her. The uncle is a man that's always in trouble with the law. He is also a guy that's a bit of a jerk to the locals. The chief of the people, who happens to be Moana's uncle, who's also a former war hero, has a relationship with the chief of the people, and it's all about Moana to save the world. The island is the main character. It's just a place where the heroes have to go to. But there are obstacles that the heroes have to overcome. The film was shot on location in the Tahitian tribe. The director, John Musker, used that to really bring the characters to life. The film is also well written. It has a great cast, but it's really the story that makes this film great. It's based on a comic book and it does take a bit of time to get into, but it's not so bad. It's well acted, it has some very moving scenes, and it's a solid piece of art that's worth seeing.
