    You have created one of the most clever and nicely worded thread titles here, ALIASd. :thumbup:

    I agree that the best of both worlds are represented in Enchanted - a magical classic fairytail and contemporary romantic comedy.

      Thanks but the main title credit goes to AnimationWorldNetwork, I simply edited the subtitle to fit within the MC restraints. It's a good article, enjoy!

        Well then, it's the best ever edited subtitle geared to fit within MC restraints! So there! Nanners! You'll have to live with my compliment. :lol:

        The article is an awesome read. Unlike many of today's spoof films, Enchanted will display a humorous contrast between the real world and traditional animated fairy tail films without resorting to overt sarcasm and outlandish negative put downs. :thumbup:

          Well thanks again!

          So agree with the last thoughts here. I couldn't help thinking what a self-serving spin DreamWorks Animation would have put on the same material. The restraint that was used with only minimal visible Disney-product placement (example: a Cinderella book in Robert's daughter's room) whereas you would surely have seen Shrek or Madagascar posters or dolls galore.

          Making Prince Edward's favorite prey a troll rather than an ogre was a classy move.

            Disney obviously went out of it's way to not lower itself to the same substandard level as Dreamworks. I admire that. What Universal has done is unnecesary. Shrek would have been a commercial success without the sophmoric satire.

              That kind of humor was greatly shaded by two of the film's stars Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy, not exactly a departure for either, just animated this time.

                Their satire works for them in most of their non-animated feature films. I have enjoyed each of Eddie Murphy's and Mike Meyers' films for years. It just doesn't work in a film by a company that acts like it has a personal grudge against Disney - or anybody else for that matter.
