The last couple weeks before spring break get a little stressful because of it being a good mid-point for professors to give tests. Luckily there are ways to relax during this time as well. Some examples? Well, I found a perfect way to break up my studying by going to, drum roll please, Reeve Union Board’s movie: Disney’s Tangled .
I’m a huge Disney buff, so I had to go when Tangled first came out in theaters last Thanksgiving. It was so good it made it into my top 5 Disney movies.
When I found out it was playing in Reeve, I jumped at the opportunity to go watch another theater viewing before it comes out on DVD. The best part is it only cost me $3 to go and I got all the same movie theater perks. Bonus: I didn’t even have to use my car – a money saver in itself when you look at gas prices.
One of the nice things about having a movie theater on campus is that you don’t waste time driving to a theater and can use that extra time to do a little more studying. That way you can be guilt-free going to a movie in the first place!
If you are anything like me, going to the movies is an excuse to get soda, popcorn and candy, but who really wants to pay more for the food than the movie? For Tangled, I got to indulge in my movie food pleasures for only 75 cents apiece.
(Let’s just say this was one movie my boyfriend was willing to pay for.)
So what could be better than cheap prices and comfy theater seats? How about the actual movie!
I have been obsessed with Disney princesses since I was a little girl, so I consider myself a pretty harsh critic of the princesses that have come out. (You just can’t beat Ariel.) My verdict on Tangled? I want to buy it when it comes out. So that should tell you how good it is.
With a leading cast of Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy and Brad Garrett, the plot and dialogue are funny, uplifting and inspirational with a touch of sarcastic humor. The soundtrack is great (I’ve been listening to “I See the Light” and “When Will my Life Begin” on YouTube as I write this) and the animation is colorful and fun. It’s definitely a flashback to classic Disney. Plus you just can’t not watch and see what happens to a girl with 70 feet of hair!
Guys don’t think this is just a girl’s thing. My boyfriend came along with me twice. And I didn’t have to force him to…just saying. But if Disney princesses aren’t your thing, don’t disregard the theater altogether. RUB brings in all different types of movies. Check out their calendar of events. Up next?
