I'm participating in Wickfield Writing's Make Believe Peter Pan blog event!
I have always loved Peter Pan... we watched the cartoon A LOT when I was little. I always wanted to be Tiger Lily and marry Peter.
Not much has changed.
A couple years ago I saw the 2003 "real-people" adaptation of Peter Pan, and had mixed feelings about it.
And then awhile later I watched it again, and decided I definitely liked it, despite some rather odd elements added to the story, some rather lame acting, and other things that are legitimate complaints about it.
So... I've never been a huge fan of Wendy. I mean, motherly, bossy big-sister types aren't my favorite.
And she is mean to Peter sometimes. >:(
But sometimes I do root for Wendy. And she is okay. I guess.
He looks so sad. *cry*
At this point I did feel bad for her.
"Mother and Father are fighting again!" LOL. Favorite quote.
My sister and I argue about Peter Pan. Because she always says he is immature and arrogant and intolerable and annoying and childish. And stuff like that. But I love his personality. IF ONLY he would have decided to come back and grow up. If I was Wendy I would have convinced him to stay.
Captain Hook was um... creepy. And really mean to Tinkerbell.
Oh, and I love that scene where Tinkerbell is in the drawer. It makes me LOL.
My romantic, inappropriately gooey side (which occasionally gets the better of me) loves this scene, which includes them dancing (in the air!!) at night. Swoon.
Peter Pan. Yeah. So my type.
The Lost Boys were awesome.
So the sorta controversial thing in this movie was the whole KISS. Warning bells. I mean, they are like 12. SO YEAH. It's a little weird. Well, try very weird.
By the way, my sister and I occasionally begin chanting "I DO believe in fairies... I DO , I DO..." at random.
Um, forget I said that. It's a little strange.
So have you seen the movie? What did you think?
