    The Prince of Egypt

    ★★★★★

    "Though Hope is frail, its hard to kill."

    I still love everything about this movie. The animation, the music, the voice cast/script, the tragic and heartwrenching relationship between Moses and Ramses, a powerful tale about how power and control leave Man nowhere but washed ashore in ruin and solitude but compassion and liberation will deliver upon us salvation...when you believe.

    The Hunchback of Notre Dame

    ★★★★½

    The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a film that was released the year I was born, and yet never saw as a kid. In fact, I actually saw the awful direct to video sequel, and only first saw this film when I was 17.

    Long before that, I did possess a collection of Disney's Greatest Musical Hits that my mom bought for me and used to play ad infinitum. And "Out There" was one of the main songs that most…
