Blah...
26 February 2011 | by unimploidstoodintSee all my reviews

The art style was fun. I thought the voice of Sophiana was very good. That about wraps up my positive comments.

The story was predictable and lame. The music was inexcusably awful. I have to leave the room anytime my 2 year old wants to watch this. Half the time it sounds like the accompaniment (which is sparse and boring) belongs to some other song; it just doesn't feel like it matches the melody, which is also boring. Here, let me sing a bit for you...

Blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah....

There.

Yes, my 2 year old likes this, but she likes a lot of stuff, and I prefer that she watches something else. I don't want her to grow up musically crippled. I also don't want her to grow up thinking that Santa has a sack made from baby Jesus' clothes. Oh,... and I always laugh when they talk about Santa's sack. They talk about that a lot.
