Title: Fairy Tales
Post by: Jstny on March 24, 2004, 07:15:33 AM
I just watched Beauty and the Beast last night...i know, 19 and I still watch Disney movies.  What can I say, I am researching for my major.  I am going to school to be an animator.  This one is my favorite...I think it is because I loved KQ6 and Robbie Benson...I think...was the voice of Alexander and the Beast.

Does anyone else have a favorite fairy tale?  It does not have to be a Disney movie.

My other fav is Jorinda and Joringel.

On the subject of Disney movies, did anyone else notice that a lot of Disney voice actors were in KQ6?
Title: Re:Fairy Tales
Post by: Akril on March 24, 2004, 08:19:38 PM
Hmm. I didn't. Of course, I don't follow Disney voice actors that closely.

I'm amazed that someone besides me has heard of Jorinda and Joringel! I first heard it on a recording of a 1940s kid's radio show that dramatizes fairy tales, and I've never heard it in any other context.

I'd have to say that my favorite is "The Fool and the Flying Ship" (there are countless variations of it and its elements), though " Puss in Boots " has been a longtime fave as well.

i know, 19 and I still watch Disney movies.
So what? Why should only (young) children be 'allowed' to watch Disney movies?
Just as I wouldn't know which game I like best, or which movie I like best, I wouldn't know which fairly tale 'by Disney) I like best. You see, to pick a best one, first you have to be able to at least remember the title.  :-\

I still love Disney movies. :) My fave Disney movie is prolly The Sword in the Stone, but that's not really a fairy tale. Unfortunately my fairy tale reading knowledge has gotten rather rusty. I was usually more inclined to read Greek myths instead. ;)

well, for fairy tales, I'm really not sure which is my favorite...but if we had to talk about Disney's adaptations of the fairy tales...it's a toss-up between Beauty and the Beast and Sleeping Beauty.

You might not have created it, but you use it. In Flemish I've never known an elfje being referred to as a fairy.

Title: Re:Fairy Tales
Post by: Akril on April 02, 2004, 12:50:02 AM
You know, Tolkien ripped off the name of another mythical beast to use for a creation of his own.

Sailors spoke of huge, sharp-jawed, black and white creatures that swam in the cold, northern waters. The name that they came to call them by later was altered slightly to become the common name that the real, non-exaggurated animal is known by: the Orca.

That's right. Orcs were fierce denizens of the ocean...until good ol' J. R. R. came along. Sad, isn't it?


Akril
Title: Re:Fairy Tales
Post by: Jeysie on April 02, 2004, 03:41:56 AM
OK, so. So far I've gotten that elves don't fly, fairies do, and orcs existed in some form before LotR. And aren't tiny versions of fairies called sprites in English? The rest I'm just confuzzled. ;P

Peace & Luv, Liz
Title: Re:Fairy Tales
Post by: B'rrr on April 02, 2004, 04:32:53 AM
sprites.... isn't that the plural of sprite? and isn't sprite a soda (like 7up)? ...<sigh> this is starting to confuse me ; )
Title: Re:Fairy Tales
Post by: Jeysie on April 02, 2004, 04:48:44 AM
Yes, sprites is a plural... I was trying to match the plurality of "tiny versions" and "fairies" in my sentence. Perhaps "Isn't a tiny version of a fairy called a sprite?" would have worked better... I apologize.

And yes, Sprite is also a soda brand. English sucks, doesn't it?

Did ye not notice that in all of your dictionary, the 'Dutch' is at the end? That's the point I was making. You normally only buy dictionaries which translate to your own language, or a language you'd like to understand. Dutch is certainly not racx's language, and I doubt it's a language he'd like to understand (in depth). 8)

I would've never bought any foreign language dictionaries had it not been for school. My E-D and D-E dictionaries stem from my mother's school days. So does the D-F dictionary, the F-D dictionary I bought for school, and the G-D and D-G dictionaries too. 8)

Little Nemo and Tenth Kingdom are my favorite fantasy movies. :) Little Nemo being that movie about the kid on the flying bed of course. ;)

Two other awesome movies, one was Cock A Doodle Doo (I think, it was about a rooster being saved or something like that) and another one had to do with a tiny kingdom being found underneath the sink (different than Tenth Kingdom I think). And there was another movie that I cannot remember the name of that had to do with Time Pirates or something. And another movie where there was a Troll with a Green Thumb, and another movie where a girl's father was turned into stone until near the end...

Basically, I love surreal fantasy movies. The ones that make you think and wonder, and you don't even know what's going on half the time. *Especially* when they blend reality with fantasy so much you can't find the border anymore. ;D

It is a rather old but good animated movie. I was surprised to see it was based on some old books from around 1908, I'll have to look up the books sometime. Little Nemo In Slumberland is the book(s).
