Review of Anastasia

Watched the animated movie Anastasia for our family movie night.

Pretty good.  The musical numbers slowed down the pace, in my opinion -- and the songs were functional, without being particularly catchy.

The animation seemed a little choppy -- like they were trying to save money by drawing fewer frames per second.

I was also annoyed by the un-necessary inclusion of "the dark forces" angle:  why did Rasputin have to be some sort of evil magician?  Couldn't they have come up with some other way of having the antagonist trying to thrwart their plans?

Plus, I thought the little white bat didn't serve any purpose -- except to be the obligatory small, cute "sidekick" of either the hero of the villain -- as per all other recent animated movies, it seems.

Anyhow:  worth seeing once.  Pretty good.
