Highlights: Fantasia is a really unique movie, in that it’s basically a series of shorts that are all set to music – so there is no dialogue, the story is told through the images and the music. It’s a really neat way to introduce people to many of these famous pieces, and the way they choose to portray the tunes is really interesting. It might sound cliché but I think Sorcerer Mickey is my favorite, though I also really enjoy The Pastoral Symphony and Night on Bald Mountain.
Low points: For me personally, I find it difficult to sit down and just watch it as a movie. I enjoy watching a short or two at a time, but the whole thing at once is a bit much for me. I’m not a big fan of the first one, “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor,” as it’s very abstract, which is just not my thing.
