Day 1: Favorite Movie of All Time
I know it’s not the most popular Disney film or the best movie, but I have to include it here considering it was my favorite movie when I was younger, and I can still sit down and enjoy it time to time. I believe I watched it so much, I can still remember most of the lines to the movie even though I don’t watch it nearly as often. AT THE TIME IT WAS RELEASED in 2003 the graphics were really awesome. I believe I saw this in theaters and the scenes where Jim is on his air glider were some of my favorites. The entire cast of characters was fun to me, especially Captain Amelia and Doctor Doppler. I also thought that the relationship between Jim and Silver was extremely touching, and not a theme that Disney touches upon that often. While it’s usually the mothers who are dead and gone in their movies, this movie explores the struggles of a single mom and how her teenage son will seek a father-figure in someone else. It’s a very powerful and effectively done message to me.
Now I that I’m older and have a bit more movie-going experience, when I do rewatch this movie I look at it with a bit more of a critical eye. For example…the black hole scene (haha wut are physics? :P). But this movie gets points simply for nostalgia…and Joseph Gordon-Levitt ;)
