11 Wow, Disney...that's cold.
Now...I'm not going to spoil Tangled for people who haven't seen it, but I have to admit: as far as Disney death scenes go, this has one of the most disturbing ones.  Disney has dabbled in freaky deaths before, but it was always more implied to be a horrible death than anything.


Sure, Gaston plummeted to his death at the end of Beauty & The Beast and Clayton snaps his neck at the conclusion of Tarzan, but we don't get to see it happen in all its child-scarring glory. Although...I'm not really complaining.  Heck, a little childhood scarring can build character.  Still, it's just a bit off-putting in a Disney movie to see the act...well, in the act.

    I agre that for littler kids the death scene was probably a bit much, but I liked it as an adult. It gave the story more reality. I loved this movie though also hahahaha I work at a Disney Store so it's like hard-wired into my heart haahahaha

    Actually, the thing is that I don't think it was too much. Someone once said that you could show a kid anything really sad as long as you concluded with a happy ending. I think that's true (at least in my case, lol). :D

    Thanks for the warning. Actually, my boys probably wouldn't want to see Tangled. Of course, they've seen Transformers and Iron Man so I haven't been the most discerning parent.

    Thanks for stopping by from Comment Love Sunday!

    It's not really a film for boys anyway. There are some fun fight scenes and stuff but it's largely a girl movie :)

    I agree! It was weird...a little "Sleeping Beauty"ish....

    There were a few creepy things about it...the villain playing a 'mother' role being one of the main ones, I think :3

    Thanks for checking out my blog. I'm following you now too.

    I really like Tangled. I thought it was an interesting twist on Rapunzel. I don't like most of the villains in Disney movies & this one follows suit. I don't like the creepiness the villain has, especially in the "Mother Knows Best" song - we own the movie & I just want to fast forward through that song!! However, I actually thought the death scene (after I remembered what you were talking about) was rather calm for a movie (Disney or otherwise). I love the horse and chameleon in the movie more than the people.

    I loved the movie and I actually thought the villain was very interesting and complex :) As for the death, I thought actually seeing it was creepy (her body hitting the ground-yikes!) but yes, it was a pretty calm one in how it was done.

    I love Tangled. It took me a while to even think of a death scene. If you're talking about the Mother dying, it really wasn't a death scene. she just turned to dust because she was hundreds of years old - so she more like *disappeared*!

    How's that for rationalization?
