I have always loved Disney movies; I think I love the songs as much as anything. Lately, however, I haven't seen much that really captivated me. The live-action movies are remarkably well-done in regards to scenery and effects, but the story has already been done and done again. I think Mulan is the latest but with the changes in the story line and characters, I've no interest in it. Politics enter into every other aspect of life-leave some imagination and fun out there!

Yeah, I am a fan of Disney movies. They were a huge part of my childhood.

I adore Disney movies, but the ones I grew up watching. To be fair, I have not actually watched any of the live-action remakes, so I cannot say whether they are good or bad. I just feel like I want to stick with the originals. Originals are always better.

Absolutely! As a 90s kid, I grew up watching Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty. Up until now, I still like to watch Disney movies. They bring back memories and the new ones are not so disappointing, too.

I see many people don't really like the remakes, but in my case I actually enjoy them.

Disney movies are the best! The storylines are innocent and unworldly. Sometimes it is nice to have that instead of a reality check. The originals are perfect. Remaking them was not such a great idea.
