Note to Self---No More Disney Movies....

*

WHY did I let Blaine talk me into watching that Walt Disney movie, "Homeward Bound--The Incredible Journey"?????? WHY, I ask you, WHY?

That movie totally had me sitting on the edge of my seat in FEAR, and then BAWLING my eyes out every five minutes---what with those two stupid dogs and that idgity cat that got lost then finally found their way home---but only after I practically got an ulcer holding my breath throughout all the dangers and sadness they went through. Good grief! First the bear, then the mountain lion, then the porky-pine--- and then just when I thought they were safe and their owners were going to come get them, those idgity animals go and break OUT of the animal shelter and get lost all over again! And then the poor old "wise" dog falls into a hole--oh GEEZ!!

They let little children watch this stuff? Jiminy Cricketts, if I'd seen this movie when I was a little kid, I'd have been traumatized! I'm too nervous and tenderhearted to watch things like this!

I'm going to stick to my nice, safe TV shows like Nancy Grace's narrations of current crime cases--- and those murder stories on the Crime Channel.... well, and yeah, "Supernatural's" demon-catching brothers, the Winchesters....

(Hell, even Blaine's stupid Sci-Fi Channel is better for me--- because at least the fake-looking monsters on there are so ridiculous, and the acting so bad, that it doesn't traumatize me....)

(Sheesh, it's been 1/2 hour since it was over and I'm STILL crying over the ending scene of that dadgum movie....)

I cant watch Bambi or Dumbo either - cause I bawl my eyes out. So much death and loss in Disney movies!!!! And UP - we just went and saw that - it was great - but the beginning was so very very sad...

This is precisely why I have not watched said film! I can't take the trauma anymore.

It does my heart good to know that I am not the only one to cry my heart out over old disney movies - especially those with animals. they can be so poignant at times.

We have to understand that the lesson in most of Disney films is the triumph of the human spirit embodied in animals. Hmmm, that sentence is creepy.
