Anastasia (1997)

Rasputin's powers were questionable. He seemed powerful, and yet he failed horribly at destroying Anastasia. Perhaps there are rules involved in wreaking havoc which I don't understand.

In regards to the character voices, first, I definitely recognized Meg Ryan's voice. Of course it helps that I've seen several of her movies and already knew she was Anastasia's voice. Second, I didn't realize that Christopher Lloyd was Rasputin until seeing it in the credits. Third, I didn't pick up on John Cusack's voice; perhaps I would if I watched the movie again.

Overall, while I enjoyed the singing and most of the animation, the movie had its flaws.

Best Quote:
"Just wishing I could do the job for you, sir. I'd give her a HA! And a HI-YA! And then a OUU-WA! And I'd kick her, sir." - Bartok

Most Memorable Scene:
Anastasia remembers the cat, and they wonder because they didn't tell her about the cat.

Watched at least once before when I was a kid... Most likely around the time the movie came out on VHS... Assuming this was the case, 1998, I was about 12... Interesting.
