Today’s movie review is on “The Little Prince”.
Film Summary (taken from Google): “The Aviator introduces a girl to a world where she rediscovers her childhood and learns that it’s human connections that matter most, and that it is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
When I saw it: August 5th
Where I saw it: Netflix
My Thoughts: I had been waiting to watch this since I first saw the trailer last year. And boy, was it worth the wait! (I literally cried during every trailer that came out…no joke) This movie is now one of my favorite movies of all time! (I’ve actually seen it 3 times since it came out.) I laughed, I cried, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie. I don’t normally cry during movies/shows unless it really hits me, so “The Little Prince” did just that. And the cast did a spectacular job! I’ve noticed that it has not been the first recently animated movie that is just geared towards kids. As a teenager, I could definitely relate to the part about ‘growing up and forgetting’. It really made me want to go back to the innocence of being a kid and just having fun.
Animation: I loved how the animation would change as they would talk about the Little Prince! Although it wasn’t as ‘smooth’ as Pixar’s animation, it was definitely great quality.
Positive Elements: It reminds us to have a childlike attitude in this society where nowadays everything is so fast-paced and kids are being forced to grow up quicker.
Negative Elements: The one and, I think, only thing I didn’t like about this movie was that it said,“…it is only with the heart that one can see rightly”. A lot of things in society have been pushing the whole,“Follow Your Heart” agenda, when scripture specifically tells us,“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9-KJV) It is blatantly going against what The Bible says. So next time you think about saying ‘follow your heart’, think again.
Music: Oh my gosh, I can’t even begin to describe my love for this soundtrack (I’m actually listening to it right now)! *squeals* The music was composed by Hans Zimmer (one of my favorites EVER!) and Richard Harvey with this French singer named Camille. I love Hans and I love French music, so could it get any better?! XD
Rating: 10/10 Stars **********
Conclusion: *sighs* I wish I could put all of my love that I have for this movie into more words, but I can’t. So all I can do now is recommend this movie for you to watch (and don’t forget the tissues if you’re like me)! And if you don’t have Netflix, at least watch the trailers.
// Well I hope that you enjoyed my first movie review! If you have watched it already, please let me know what you thought about it. I’d love to know! Later darlings! ❤
