The Prince of Egypt is Underrated

I think I’ve blogged about this movie in the past in various forms, but I just found this:

And it reminded me of how underrated this movie is. Not just in terms of the songs, but the whole thing.

I mean, this scene? This is some of the most beautiful animation I’ve seen.

I don’t know if it’s because my little stupid kid brain always pictured like 200 people going for like a quarter of a mile to cross the Red Sea when we read about all of this stuff in Catholic school, but when I first saw this movie I was amazed at the immense number of people and how long of a walk it was to cross the sea. It makes the story that much more impactful, I think.

And yeah, I know, bible stuff, but still. This movie is really well done. Watch it if you haven’t.
