“Why on earth is this movie rated so low? Itu0026#39;s even rated lower than some of the DTV sequels. That shouldnu0026#39;t happen. It is historically inaccurate, but why should that be an issue? All I want is a visually stunning film with great music, and thatu0026#39;s what I got. The animation is splendid. America looked so rich in colour, and the colours were so bright. The songs are sometimes the weakest element of an animation. Here it is the main reason why this movie is so memorable. u0026quot;Colours of the Windu0026quot; is one of the most beautiful songs Iu0026#39;ve heard, and Iu0026#39;ve sung it before. Pocahontasu0026#39;s singing voice is none other than the Broadway singer, Judy Kuhn, who was absolutely terrific. When I was 12, I tried to sound like her. The incidental music is also definitely the most lyrical of the Alan Menken scores. The weakest element of the film, is actually the character development. The protagonist, voiced by Irene Bedard, is very well done, but most of the other characters are not as effective. Mel Gibson has a singing voice, but his speaking voice is too monotonous to my liking, and Ratcliffe isnu0026#39;t a very likable or memorable villain at all(one of Disneyu0026#39;s blandest villains actually), despite enthusiastic voice work from David Ogden Stiers. But Meeko and Flit are great fun, and Grandmother Willow was good too. Donu0026#39;t say this film is racist. Some of the imagery is fantastic in the songs of war and animosity, and the film has a great love story and message. The ending was actually quite effective and poignant. In conclusion, one of the least memorable of the Disney movies, is so worth watching. 8.5/10. Bethany Cox”
