The Land Before Time


As I was organizing my clothes in the cabinet, I found this big box on top. I got it down and opened it. It's full of video CDs I've collected from way back when, mostly animated films. I've forgotten all about it. I think it was during highschool (or gradeschool, maybe?) when I started collecting video CDs of my favorite movies. And looking inside the box, I felt a bit nostalgic. I checked the titles and picked one: The Land before Time. This, I gotta watch again.

After finishing my chore, I sat down to watch the movie. It's a prehistoric adventure of five little dinosaur friends, Littlefoot, Cera, Spike, Ducky and Petrie. I have 9 movies, out of the complete 13. Of course, I started with the first one. I've seen this movie may times and it gave me some good laughs. But it also moved me to tears, especially when Littlefoot's mother died and the "If We Hold On Together" theme song started to play. Aww, darn that song..


Have you seen these movies? They're not just cartoons.. They are animated tales of friendship, loyalty and love. The first movie is definitely a tearjerker. As of this writing, I'm done watching the first two movies. Going to watch the rest later. Ta-ta!

  2. Ay bongga ka Leah! ikaw na ang may koleksyong ganito! Bagamat konti pa lang ang napanuod ko sa mga yan, at actually nappilitan lang manuod at samahan ang mga kids sa preschool class ko at dun ko napatunayan ko - na sila ay talaga namang kapupulutan ng aral. Peter Pan, Cinderella, Happy Feet ay ilan lang.

    May bago akong post dito. Dalaw ka minsan!

    1. You should watch the first one, Cindy.. It's really a great movie.

      Yeah, I like the old cartoons.. though I enjoy watching the new cartoons (Shrek, How TO Train Your Dragon, Cars, etc..) I still prefer those movies like The Lion King, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, etc.. They're hand-drawn.. :)
