Let’s Talk: Encanto (Brief Thoughts)

I know that we’re no longer in the year 2021, but I did want to talk a little bit about a movie that I watched within the closing parts of that year! I won’t be going over it in full detail, due to the fact that I would like to also give some thoughts with it in an upcoming episode, although it’s been a long while that I’ve recorded, a month actually to be fair, however I do have it in mind to get back into it…..when exactly!? That I haven’t decided, but I will try to get back to it soon!

In the meantime we’ll just discuss some of it here for now! For those wondering what Encanto is, it’s a movie, an animated Disney movie/musical that recently released I believe sometime last year (a little weird we’re saying that now, I mean 2021 was literally just last week) I don’t really know when of last year, but that’s okay I’ll just look it up once I’m done!

(Update: As I was writing that last sentence, I ended up just looking it up anyway, it released on the 24th of November)

Now if you haven’t watched Encanto yet, I would definitely, definitely recommend checking this one out, it is soooo good, it’s a bit hard to explain the story of it writing wise, I would need to re watch it again and get a refresher of it and properly allow my thoughts to really take it all in again! There was a lot to Encanto and I want to be able to give my best and honest opinions of it….SPOILER…..I don’t have a negative thought on it, I bet you thought I was going to give you a spoiler on the movie didn’t you!? Don’t worry, we don’t do that here, well at least I try not to, I don’t like spoilers myself so I wouldn’t go and do that to someone else and if I do feel like I’m going to spoil something for someone, I do make sure to give a heads up beforehand! Back to Encanto, I love the movie and I look forward to really getting into it later when I’ve taken it in for a second time!

One thing I will will say is, this movie does get you emotional, now it may not be like that for everyone, I know everybody has different emotional levels to them, but this movie left me feeling teary eyed a few times not going to lie…..then again, I’m an emotional type of person anyway, so whether I’m listening to a sappy love song or any song that has a very deep meaning with beautifully written lyrics or I’m watching a movie that maybe relatable or it’s story is too much to handle (in a good way) there’s a 95 percent chance that I will cry, but that’s just who I am, I can try and hold it, but I usually don’t if it’s an emotional moment, I just let it happen!

It’s best to allow your emotions to come out when it’s feeling something strongly and that’s not just for when you’re watching movies or listening to music, I mean that in a general sense! Going back on track though, Encanto is very beautiful….although there is a key meaning to it, you may find yourself taking more than just one message from it! Plus the soundtrack is quite interesting, but really good, although I’ve only heard it once when watching the movie, I still enjoyed it!!

There’s a lot of things you wouldn’t really expect from it until you’re watching it for yourself, but one of the things that I really do like and admire with it, is the storytelling and if you’re from a Spanish speaking family certain things within this movie will be quite relatable and even if it’s not relatable and you’re not from a Spanish speaking family, it doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy it or feel like you can’t watch it and think to yourself “I know what that feels like” we all go through similar things in different ways, we don’t have to be the same in order to know what something feels like, we can still relate and be different!

You can learn a lot from Encanto, like I said it’s hard to describe at the moment which is why I will be re watching it so I can try and explain it better in the best way I feel I’m able to, but I would without a doubt recommend that you check it out if you haven’t already, it is a tear jerker, but it’s one of those movies that once you start watching it, just know your eyes might not leave the screen, at least that’s how I feel, I know everyone has different opinions and reactions to things so you may or may not feel the same, but it is worth giving a chance and watching, see what your thoughts are of it!

Those are some of my thoughts of it, I know it’s brief, but hopefully I was able to have it get considered to be on your watchlist and if I’ve not convinced you here, just know I will try again lol, anyway hope you all have a good rest of the day, take care, stay safe and Happy 3 Kings Day for those that celebrate it out there, see you soon!!

All The Love ❀ ❀
