11 Beautiful Ladies
After my very long hiatus I decided make a list of everything
for my official return and especially since this my first article since Merida joined I figured it was perfect timing plus I'm too lazy to do certain lists over. I was going to upload collages to decorate this article but like I said I'm too lazy to do that. So let's get started.
11 princesses, 11 personalities, 11 stories
I'm sorry but Rapunzel will never rank any higher for me. She's just so annoying, there's nothing unique about her and her appearance doesn't well with me either. I like that she's artistic and outgoing and she's the only princess, along with Mulan, to experience growth as a character. She is a kickass heroine and I do enjoy her childish nature. I love her, I love all the princesses but overall Rapunzel's just too irritating to be in my top 10.
-Sometimes this movie just gives me a headache with how annoying it is.
Animation: Princess and The Frog
-Nothing really spectacular.
-One word. HAAAAAAAAAAAATE
-N/A No one in the movie is truly evil.
-Her eyes are too freakin large!
Singing Voice: Merida
-Now I'm starting to see the problem with Merida being a DP.
-Please don't hunt me down for this! I really don't like her clothes. Sorry.
-I only enjoy Louis and Lottie, everyone else is just irritating.
I love how romantic and dreamy she is. I like that she's obedient and loyal. And I've found a sense of mystery about her that I really like. Her charm and femininity are like a breathe of fresh air. She is regal and mature but childlike and flirtatious. The essence of what a perfect princess is. Sure she's a little boring and kind of a crybaby but her classy and angelic demeanor just makes her so endearing. And given the number of adjectives I just used, there is no way you can say she has no personality.
The Girly Girl
-The side dishes(animation, music) tastes better than the main course(plot, characters). That's not a good meal.
Animation: The Little Mermaid
-It's expertly detailed but also alittle sloppy at times.
Soundtrack: Beauty and The Beast
-There's only one amazing song, take a wild guess.
-Surprised? He's bland, lazy, douchie. I can't think of one nice word to say about this dude.
Villain: Governor Ratcliffe
-I had half a mind to put him in 11th place. He's such a dumbass.
Prettiest: Snow White
-I love her but her appearance kinda creeps me out.
Singing Voice: Snow White
-Not a surprise. Her voice is unique, I'll say that.
Couple: Aladdin and Jasmine
-I don't get a sense of true love between them. I can picture them getting divorced.
-She only has one outfit that looks more costume than cultural.
-I only enjoy Lumiere and the tea cup, everyone else is boring.
She's kindhearted, nurturing and willing to give a hideous monster a chance at love, you have to at least admire that. l like that Belle's book smart and sophisticated despite being a farm girl. And I like that she's willing to give up freedom for her father and will do anything for him. But there are things I dislike about Belle. She's arrogant, she tries to come off as if she's the nerdy outcast when she's really just too stuck up give the townspeople a chance. She's also obnoxiously perfect, she doesn't have a single flaw. Although she's boring and pretentious, I love Belle and her personality.
Movie: Princess and The Frog
-I love the characters and the setting of this movie but it's very messy and confusing.
Animation: Snow White and Seven Dwarfs
-Pretty remarkable considering how old this movie is but because of it's age it won't rank any higher.
-The only memorable song is a Whole New World but that doesn't mean the rest aren't good.
Prince: John Smith
-He just doesn't interest me at all.
Villain: The Queen
-Quite frankly, she's not very bright.
-Her features are either gorgeous(smile, skin, body) or hideous(nose, eyes, hair).
Singing Voice: Belle
-There is nothing special about her voice. She sounds like she's talking.
Couple: Tiana and Naveen
-Their romance felt really forced and unnatural to me.
-She has a slightly edgier style and I definitely appreciate that.
-I LIKE MEEKO, there I said it! But he's the only one I like.
Adventurous yet compassionate, Pocahontas is the perfect combination of grace and athleticism. Her connection to nature is very inspiring and I love her desire to be free and just get wild. She's easily one of the best role models in Disney. She promotes environmentalism and equality. Not only is she a princess, she's an ambassador for peace too. Her dramatic poses get on my nerves and sometimes she can be downright stupid. But Poca is truly an amazing young woman. I mean, she jumps off cliffs and leaps over waterfalls! She's definitely not the typical princess.
The Free Spirit
-I like it better than the first three but I must say, it is the most poorly and lazily made DP movie.
-The art style is beautiful and it has an epic feel to it.
Soundtrack: Snow White and Seven Dwarfs
-I just like the other soundtracks better.
-He's funny, charming and good looking but also useless and annoying.
Villain: Mother Gothel
-I was sad for her when she died. I'm not supposed to feel that way when a villain dies.
-Gorgeous body and a Janet Jackson smile but her eyes and nose dragged her down.
Singing Voice: Jasmine
-Extremely generic and uninspiring.
Couple: Snow White and the Prince
-They are so cute together even if their relationship creeps me out.
Wardrobe: Snow White
-Her signature dress, wonderful, her other dress, not so much.
-Maximus is awesome but he doesn't become a sidekick until the end. Pascal also drags them down.
The newest addition to the lineup, I thought I was gonna love or hate her but ultimately she ends up in the middle. She's feisty, loud, headstrong, rebellious, adventurous, independent. She's pretty much a mild blend of every princess since Ariel but I wouldn't call her a rip off. She's unique and she does bring new stuff to the table. She is not interested in romance at all and I kinda like that. I also like her love for archery. What I don't like is how she's portrayed as this heroic badass when she's really just a whiny teenaged kid with mommy issues. However, her impulsive wild side is very cool.
Movie: Sleeping Beauty
The Wild Child
-It definitely has it's moments but it's so slow-paced and it just drags on!
-It does have some very awesome moments, the lava scene, but way too cartoony, modern and inconsistent.
-I love that it's traditional Scottish music. Obviously, most of it is background music so the ranking can't be high.
-I admire his heroism and his discipline but something about him rubs me the wrong way.
Villain: Dr. Facilier
-Though, he's a sucky villain. I still think he's an awesome character.
-She does not have a single ugly shot, not one. But she's too generic.
Singing Voice: Mulan
-She sings with raw real emotion unlike Jasmine.
Couple: Rapunzel and Flynn
-It's cute and romantic but other relationships are more interesting.
-Wow, something Ariel is actually underrated in!
-They're adorable and funny but they kinda suck at actually being sidekicks.
She's the princess that started it all. Yes, you've heard that before about a million times. She is a timeless classic character that paved for every princess that followed. I think what I love most about Snow White is her simplicity. She's not a complex character, she's just a happy go-lucky princess with a smile on her face and joy in her heart. Sure, she's not exactly the strong warrior woman but any girl who can survive attempt at murder and then dust herself off that quickly must be tougher than she looks. Her sunshine presence, her endless cheerfulness. People find Snow White irritating but I admire her as a person.
-I love the characters and especially the music. But it's not an exciting film by any means.
Animation: Beauty and The Beast
-The inconsistency is extremely annoying. Amazing when done properly, though.
Soundtrack: Sleeping Beauty
-Though, I enjoy every song. I am in no way a fan of opera music.
Prince: The Prince
-I can't help it, he's so lovable, he's Snow's soul-mate and I'm not even gonna joke about him being nameless.
Villain: Lady Tremaine
-If she had powers she'd probably be #1. Plus, she never actually does anything illegal.
-Total butterface. Her body is heart stopping! But her non-existent nose and fish lips, ugh.
Singing Voice: Aurora
-She has this mature goddess like tone.
Couple: Mulan and Shang
-The relationship feels more like friendship though.
-Her armor is badass, her matchmaker dress is breathtaking and her blue dress is really pretty.
-Her brothers are freaking hilarious! and so cute.
The hottest, sexiest and most beautiful princess in the line-up, in my opinion. Ariel's adorable but rebellious, carefree but passionate about what she wants. She has her flaws but flaws are what make her so beautiful. Ironically, her biggest flaw is probably my favorite trait of hers. It's hilarious whenever she tries to understand the surface world. Her effervescence is very refreshing and her need to explore is relatable. With Ariel, I think the bad balances out the good. Yeah, she is extremely disobedient and irresponsible but she is also bubbly, adventurous and just plain fun.
Movie: Beauty and The Beast
The Eye Candy
-It deserves every last bit of recognition it gets. I just prefer other DP movies.
Animation: Sleeping Beauty
-The artistic value of this film is undeniable. It was definitely ahead of it's time.
-It's only four songs so it can only go so far but still pretty awesome.
-I don't really love him nor do I really have a problem with him.
-I think he's an idiot but he's a very good villain. I mean, he has an entire town serving him as his army.
-Yes, I am one of the very select few people. I think she's beautiful.
Singing Voice: Tiana
-The perfect voice for her character.
Couple: Cinderella and Charming
-I only like Charming when he's around Cindy.
-Her dress at the end is ugly but her signature dress is awesome!!
-Jaq and Gus are troopers.The stuff they go through for Cinderelly.
The star of the DP franchise, Cinderella is the princess of all princesses. She's calm, collected, poised, smart, kind, beautiful and strong, on the inside. She puts up with her stepfamily's abuse and doesn't complain once, you have to at least respect for that. It does bother me that Cindy never stands up to them but I understand why she doesn't. Because she's a good person, and shouldn't have to stoop to their level, she's treats all people, and mice, the way they would want to be treated. She doesn't let the poor treatment get her down either, she takes with head held high and a pretty smile on her face.
Movie: Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs
-A beloved classic with delightful characters and a simple story. It reaches out and really makes you feel.
-Beautiful down to the last sparkle. They really put alot of effort into it.
Soundtrack: Princess and the Frog
-Yeah, I know I'm in the minority but I absolutely love jazz music.
-I actually do love the whole knight in shining armor thing, he's pretty cool.
-He's a very intimidating man, in a pedophilic sorta way. It works for him.
-Even when she's a boy, she's still a soft natural beauty.
Singing Voice: Rapunzel
-Mandy Moore! Will you marry me?
Couple: Belle and The Beast
-The whole hostage situation is alittle creepy but their love is very true.
-I kinda have this love/hate relationship with her yellow dress. But her pink dress, phenomenal.
-Crikee and Khan are badass. Yao, Ling and Po are really funny. I just don't like Mushu, he's a pain in the ass.
Probably the most unique princess in the bunch. Other girls wanted to get married when they grew up but Tiana, she wanted a business of her very own. Hardworking and mature, she wasn't interested nor did she have time for dreams and fantasies or fun. It is irritating how uptight she is and she seems to think her work ethic makes her superior to everyone else. But she just wants to make her dream come true, not to mention make her father proud. And the fact she pretty much spent her entire life going after her dream, you have to admire Tiana's dedication and ambition.
Movie: The Little Mermaid
-It's fun, that's all can say. Absolutely no boring scenes and I am entertained all the way through.
-Duh, it's CGI.
-The whole movie is like a sweet 90 minute lullaby. How could you not like at least one song on this timeless soundtrack.
Prince: The Beast
-He's a complex and well developed character unlike other princes.
Villain: Shan Yu
-Unlike most other villains, he actually knows what he's doing.
-Her face is breathtaking. She's inconsistent but when she's drawn right, she is drawn RIGHT.
Singing Voice: Cindy/Poca/Ariel
-They're tied. I think Ariel will be #3 but still Jodi Benson's a boss.
Couple: Ariel and Eric
-They also win the award for hottest couple
-Beautiful, comfortable, sexy, unique.
-The good fairies are some kickass ladies and the woodland creatures are nice.
She's not just the first ethnic princess, she's the first princess who wasn't all flowers and sunshine all the time. Jasmine is fierce, angry, mean and aggressive and I love that. She's a total bitch and I love her for it. I love how she's so opinionated and not afraid to speak her mind and stand up to those who oppose her. She will not put up with the foolishness for a minute. She does have a big mouth and she does disrespect tradition and her family's values but she's such a spitfire I can't but enjoy it. And when Jasmine's not being hotheaded, she's extremely cunning and intuitive. Jasmine is very special is my eyes and she will always be in my top 2.
-An inspirational tale with epic action, hilarious comedy, valuable morals and a kickass leading lady.
Soundtrack: The Little Mermaid
-The songs are fun, infectious and powerful. The worst song (Kiss the Girl) is still in my top 20 Disney songs.
-Heroic, kind, good looking and talented. He's an all around good human being, plain and simple.
-She's not overrated at all in my opinion. She's the real deal.
-The epitome of elegance. Head to toe gorgeous.
Singing Voice: Cindy/Poca/Ariel/
-I guess I'd put Pocahontas at #2 just based on the shear power of her voice.
Couple: Phillip and Aurora
-The perfect couple. Sure they're cliché but I love them.
-Her ballroom gown is pure perfection.
Sidekicks: Snow White
-The dwarfs are what make this movie, they are the secret ingredient to it's success.
She may not be a princess but she's a hero and that's just as good. Mulan started out as a timid insecure girl and transformed into strong, heroic, confident warrior. Her story is the ultimate tale of trials, tribulations and triumph. She brings honor to her family and her whole country, defeats an entire army, not once but twice and proves that a woman can just as good, if not a better job than a man when it comes to being a hero. She's an amazing role model with such an inspirational story. She's valiant, strong, skillful, genuine, funny, extremely intelligent and undeniably brave. She's my favorite princess and she will forever be my #1.
-It's got action, comedy, adventure, romance. The most well rounded Disney Movie ever.
-The whole film looks like a painting coming to life, absolutely spectacular.
-Every song in this movie is a masterpiece.
-He's one of my childhood icons and I'll always love him no matter how much he lies and steals.
-She's an evil genius with best villain song. And adding Vanessa doesn't hurt.
-Absolutely gorgeous! Her eyes, her smile, her hair, her body. She's the sexiest thing to come out of the sea.
Singing Voice: Cindy/Poca/Ariel
-I'll give the #1 spot to Cinderella because her voice is soothing and so unique.
Couple: Pocahontas and John
-The passion when they kiss! Oh My God!
-More outfits mean more versatility and that's what you get with Tiana.
-Each serves a purpose and impacts the plot. I don't like Abu but Genie and Carpet are just too awesome.
Thanks for reading!
