I just finished watching Winnie the Pooh, which came out earlier this year. It’s was splendid - I enjoyed it very much, and it gave me quite the rumbly in my tumbly.
As the movie was starting off, everything looked very life-like. The wooden door, the furniture, the floor. So detailed, so realistic. Then I realised: it was all real! I groaned thinking, 'is this a live action movie?' Immediately a thousand and one renditions of a live action Pooh Bear started popping up in my upstairs circus.

 
Well, at least they didn’t go all 3-D computer rendered animation. That would have sucked.. 
 Then I heard the familiar voice of the narrator - maybe even the same narrator from the series that I used to watch on the Disney Channel. The camera gradually panned and focused on a story book, and just as the Narrator mentioned the hundred acre woods, the book opened up to reveal the classic animated Winnie the Pooh! 

I'm so glad they decided to stick with the traditional animation style. It seems to have a more agreeable look and feel.

Oh, this movie really brought back a lot of memories I had of the Winnie the Pooh series. All the characters had the same voices as the ones I remembered as a child, even. Well, except maybe for owl. I’m pretty sure he used to sound much deeper-voiced in the series. 

As the narrator introduced the characters, I realized that a lot of them had names that don’t really seem to burst with creativity, like Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga and Roo. A.. A. Milne must have been having a really good day when he came up with Tigger. 

 Eventhough the movie stuck with the same animation style as in the series, there were some novelties. They were quite good actually, and they didn’t stick out from the rest, so I think they made a nice addition. Stuff like the characters walking along the sentences in the book, and also really vibrant colours. Oh, and the songs were a welcome addition as well.
 
 
Why hello there, Pooh Bear! 

Oh! And the scenes where Pooh fantasized about honey! They were so deliciously beautiful. The honey looked so golden and yummy. It actually made me have a sudden desire for honey. Which then quickly turned into a craving for chocolate, cake, ice cream and all manners of sweet things in general.

 
Doesn’t that make you want honey? 

Now I am unable to finish talking about this lovely movie because I must hastily make my way to a vending machine and acquire delicious treats. Then I'll come back, and proceed to watch Piglet's Big Movie and Pooh's Heffalump Movie while eating said treats. 

T.T.F.N., ta-ta for now!
