Because my fiancé obliges to see all of the nerdy action movies with me, I figured it was only fair that I watch one of her favorite film series…and I might as well have some fun and make a rapid fire review out of it. And what did I have to sit through to show my love for my beautiful bride-to-be? The Tinker Bell movies. Not gonna lie...I was not thrilled with this idea, but with faith, trust, and pixie dust, I got through them all. Here are my thoughts on them.
Tinker Bell–Admittedly, I was quite impressed with the voice acting here, and it turns out they hired some very talented actors to be in this. Aside from that and some pleasant imagery, I found watching my fiancé watching the movie to be more captivating. She’s so purty!
Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure–I zoned out so much that I completely forgot what the treasure was, how it got lost, and if it was found. I just had to keep telling myself to get through it because the real treasure was making my lovely lady happy, by sitting through this with her.
Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue–I appreciated the nods to the classic Peter Pan movie in this. Nostalgia is a cheeky way of getting on my good side, but I prefer the old movie instead of this one.
Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Wings–At first, I thought this was just cashing in on Frozen’s success with the similar theme of sisterhood and snowy visuals, but as it turns out, this came out before Frozen! And like that movie, I admittedly enjoyed my time with it, but I wouldn’t say I have a desire to watch it again.
Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy–I'll admit this: I liked their approach to Captain Hook. He’s just a great villain, and I did enjoy seeing a younger and more conniving version of him. Alright, Tinker Bell movies, you have my attention now.
Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast–Two things that took me by surprise: 1) This is not really a Tinker Bell movie; her friend Fawn (Oh crap, I’m starting to learn their names…) is more of a lead in this. 2) I swear this is a crossover with Alice in Wonderland. Someone, please verify for me that the NeverBeast is from Wonderland, because that’s all I could think about while watching this. Anyway, I did appreciate the risk they took by allowing a side character to have the spotlight and the darker tone overall. Surprisingly, this series showed a lot of promise towards the end. Alas, the studio behind these movies was shut down. It’s sort of sad really, because I can see that there was a lot of passion and hard work that went into these movies. Though I may not be a fan, I do appreciate the great effort into making these low budget films just as impactful as their larger budget siblings.
And there you have it! A loving boyfriend sat through six (I’m in awe there’s that many.) Tinker Bell movies and didn’t lose his sanity. Are you proud of me? What’s been your experience with the Tinker Bell movies? Did you watch them voluntarily, out of obligation to a loved one, or were you forced? Let me know your experience and whether or not you enjoyed watching them.
