All Tangled Up

I never would have guessed that we'd end up watching a Disney flick on Netlix Streaming. But we did, and I'm glad we did.

The movie was "Tangled," the 2010 retelling of the Rapunzel legend. And what can I say? No one does animation like Disney, and the movie was positively delightful. Perhaps not quite in the upper echelon of latter-day Disney classics ("Beauty and the Beast," "The Lion King"), but close enough.

It seems that every Disney movie has a classic, non-speaking animal character - and "Tangled" doesn't disappoint in that regard, with Maximus, a horse that seems to think he's a bloodhound.

Sometimes, you don't need complicated drama or intricate plots. All you need is some top-tier animation, with a story that brings a smile to the face. In that regard, "Tangled" scores on all counts.
