Anyone else been to see this yet? Such a beautiful film!

Igneococcus Tue 06-Dec-16 06:11:55

The dc and i really want to see it but it's not on yet in our one small cinema (rural Scotland). Glad to see it's getting decent reviews.

It's brilliant! So much better than the trailers suggested.

My son insisted we went and DH and I were both trying to avoid it as the trailers and one of the leads being the Rock put us both off. Then Mark Kermode gave it a great review so I risked it.

Good story, beautiful animation, some great humour and the music is a perfect match. So pleased I saw it.
My DD is 14 and came too and she loved it as well (having had to be dragged along)

Loved it. Best Disney film in a long time, and what a great female character!!

Their use of tattoo's in the movie is incredible as well.

I might have to ring the cinema and find out what their plans are. It only has one largish screen and a small one and with the current number of releases (Rogue One coming soon too) I hope they are not forgetting about Moana. Mind you, they are finding time to put on Scottish Mussel, a romcom set amongst mussels conservationists in the Highlands, they can't be that desperate for screen time.
It's got Jemaine Clement, Temuera Morrison and Taika Waititi wrote the original script, it had to be good.

Oh it's so so so fab and I agree that the trailer did NOT do it justice. Or maybe they were just so confident that they were making a classic (which I think it is) that they didn't feel the need to do a big splashy trailer.

It's just gorgeous, I loved EVERYTHING about it, a properly strong female lead (not false feistiness), humour (unlike Frozen, sorry but Olaf just isn't that funny) and GREAT songs. Stunning animation. I was just in awe. Wonderful stuff. Best amimated movie I've seen in years (and I love a lot of them)

I agree it is very good.
Did any of you stay for the post credit scene . It is one of the best I have seen.

It is a lovely film. Our 7 year old DD cried twice in the film but said she loved it. It also prompted lots of questions from her about the environment, the sea and tattoos.

She is soppy though, she cried when the tolls were in the cauldron in the film Trolls.

My Dd10 and I both loved it. Very refreshing to have such nice strong characters and the whole premise was fab. Well worth watching.

PopcornBits Tue 06-Dec-16 12:52:22

This is a PG isn't it. I just booked to go with my nearly 4 yr old, I'm not sure if she's too young??

HerRoyalNotness Tue 06-Dec-16 12:53:19

We enjoyed but I would have liked to see some Polynesian songs used in it instead of the fluff they came up with

DearMrDilkington Tue 06-Dec-16 12:59:06

Oo I may take dd to see this in the Christmas holidays if it's good. Will it be suitable for a 4.5yo? She's not easily scared and loves Disney films.

SomeDayMyPrinceMightCome Tue 06-Dec-16 19:23:18

My DD is almost 4 and wasn't scared at all (was more scared by Chef in Trolls) and she absolutely loved it so I'd say it would be perfect Popcornbits and MrDilkington.

Like your DD MrDilkington mine is a Disney fan so this really was right up her street.

We are planning to go again with grandparents as we both loved it so much.

I'm a bit of a latecomer to this film, but I absolutely love the soundtrack. I'm thinking of buying it on cd to play on car journeys, and I think that the only other Disney soundtrack I have on cd is the lion king.

It's a beautiful film, and I can't think of any really annoying characters like you get in some Disney films. I love Moana herself, she's a great determined character, and not sitting around whingeing like some female Disney characters. I especially love the grandmother in the film. She's brilliant. It's a very good film, and is certainly up there with Disney's best.

Igneococcus Mon 27-Feb-17 06:59:53

Rachel House, who voices Moana's gran is awesome. She plays Paula the social care worker in Hunt for the Wilderpeople which is a great movie too.

thethoughtfox Mon 27-Feb-17 07:09:54

I just feel like I want to cry all the way through it. And it's really funny, too.

CassyD Wed 01-Mar-17 13:09:08

it's awesome movie, so beautiful song, i even cried a bit smile

freethebiscuit Sat 04-Mar-17 02:40:31

Love it! Could hear hubby downstairs with kids this morning belting out 'you're welcome'! Very catchy songs too then grin

MusicToMyEars800 Fri 10-Mar-17 12:32:07

took my dds to see was brilliant one of the best Disney films so far i'd say much better than frozen! my youngest dd is 4 so I would definitely say it is suitable, she loved it and didn't get scared at all. I had no idea what the film was about and didn't get much from the trailer but that was for the best, I would recommend seeing this film!

CMOTDibbler Fri 10-Mar-17 12:43:06

I went with ds the other week (our tiny community theatre/cinema gets things months after release) and loved it. No romance/getting rescued by a man/ waiting for a prince - Moana is guided by her fab granny and goes out to sort the problem herself. And when she's done that, its her who leads the way as Wayfinder and teaches the men.

Monny1 Fri 11-Aug-17 17:26:12

I have watched this and l found it quite boring and so did my daughter.

AmyOb Fri 11-Aug-17 23:55:43

It such a beautiful movie. My DD loves the songs. Maui's moving tattoos are funny too. A good movie for a girl.
