                                                           (Disney) Frozen!

                                  -Coming out in theaters Thanksgiving-

 

I'm so excited about the next animated movie, Frozen, it's mostly inspired by the classic fairytale "The Snow Queen" but with an interesting twist. ;)

The character's names I've listed below:

 

Anna (1 out of 2 main heroines)

Elsa (2 out of 2 main heroines)

Kristoff

Hans

Olaf (he's a snowman)

 

The basic plot is (princess) Anna trying to reconnect with her sister, Elsa, who is to become Queen of the kingdom of Arendale.

 

 

 

                                            

 Soooooooo can't wait to see it!! :D

Hm...

I'm starting to think I'm the only person not interested in seeing this movie. I sound like such a Scrooge.

 

After reading an interview with the head animator about "animating female characters are really, really difficult, because they have to go through these range of emotions, but you have to keep them pretty", I've lost all interest in the film.

 

I have never been able to un-see this gif.

 

Sorry. I'll get off of my soap box now. I'm also sorry for the negativity in this post. Not meaning to rain on anyone's parade. But more power to you for liking a film I don't! 83

Thanks for being honest, Mudslide. :)

I completely understand having a different opinion about something that someone else is excited about! (especially discerning a movie) But can I tell you something?

 

See, I guess the real reason I'm so hyped up about seeing the film is mostly owed to my little sister.

She loves to play with the disney doll versions of the characters! ...and to tell the truth, I don't think she cares at all about the movie. She just likes to play and create adventures of her own with Anna and Elsa, not to mention her imaginary Olaf. We have such fun riding on top our old chairs in the basement, pretending to ride through winter forests with snowfakes falling on our heads in buckets. :D

 

So I guess, Mudslide, I'm right there with you! I don't mind much anymore about seeing Frozen, I just want to keep playing pretend.

 

And hey! If you ever care to chat sometime, just send me a PM! Maybe you could tell me something your excited about. :)

So, this could be partly a spoiler but not really, since there's so much to this movie.

Anyways, this song is so inspirational, and this is my favourite scene from the movie, just...amazing. Great visuals, too

It's the song "Let It Go," and the actual movie scene. (So awesome 8D )

INCOMING SPOILER ALERT

So I was dragged out to see this movie last night and, surprise surprise, it lived up to my poor expectations. Quite literally everything that I had a problem with either involved/was caused by Anna. I would have liked the movie so much more if she wasn't so much as even in it in the first place (that's how much I dislike her).

 

When confronted with her sister being called a "Monster" and whether or not "she's also one", the first words out of her mouth are literally, and I quote, "I'm perfectly normal". Not "How dare you say that about my sister" or anything remotely defensive for her sister. No. She first covers her own butt before proceeding to give a whishy-washy defense that's easily forgotten and overlooked by EVERYONE. This particular part of the film really irks me and set me off for the rest of the film.

 

I also honestly believe Elsa had control over her powers from the get-go, but her parents forcibly seperated the sisters and made Elsa believe she was a danger blew things entirely out of proportion. When Elsa first hits Anna in the forehead, the ice around the ballroom shows signs of rapid melting while she's worrying about Anna. When Hanz tells Elsa Anna has died, she collapses and immediately the raging blizzard comes to a hault. Elsa has loved Anna from the beginning, but her parents force-fed her that she was a threat to her sister and scared the living daylights out of the poor girl.

 

As for that "Act of Love"? I think it was Anna finally realizing she loves her sister back by finally putting somebody else in front of herself. Up until that point she's selfish and refuses to believe anything is her fault. To make matters worse, when told this is what she needs to not die, Anna immediately overlooks the love of her sister for the supposed love of a man she's spent less than a day's time around.

 

She went after Elsa after she froze over the town? I don't see such a pretty picture. I believe she did it, not because she genuinely cared about Elsa, but because she wanted to make herself out to be such a great person. After Elsa accidentally hits Anna in the heart, she then proclaims to Hanz that her sister "attacked" her and that she "was wrong" about her sister not being able to hurt her.

 

Other nit-picks:

→ Oolaf was entirely unnessesary in my opinion.

→ Nobody reconciles or even appologizes for the way Else was treated.

→ The film seemed overly rushed and Anna makes no attempt to even acknowledge that she's the cause of everything.

 

Forgive me if I sound bitter (as this is only the tip of the iceburg of problems I have with this film). I've heard one too many people tell me they want to like this movie, but just can't for some reason or another.

Ah, those are good reasons

Ah, those are good reasons actually.

You we're especially right about Elsa's parents making it harder for her by not letting her see Anna. It's pretty stupit of them to do that, but on the other hand. They we're just worried about Anna getting hurt. And that way Elsa getting hurt too, because y'know, sister love 'n all...

now that I think about it...

 

I see what you mean. and I think that in addition to Olaf being unnecessary, I think he's a bit weird. also that song where he wants to see summer.

though I did like that song "let it go". I just like the tune, mostly. but I thought it was an ok movie overall. HTTYD is going to be way better than this one!!! 8D

*runs to defend Frozen*

Yeah, the movie definitely has its issues. I still love it, but I think it's important to recognize the flaws in things that you love. The faces (Anna's, Elsa's, Rapunzel's, and the Queen of Arendelle's) being similar bothers me -- I think that was just a straight-up missed opportunity for a lot of cool appearance diversity. The lack of people of color also bothers me (Kristoff could've been Sami, some of the lords that Hans talks to could've been Middle Eastern or North African, etc.), and the lack of female supporting characters (in the original story, there were tons, but in the movie, Elsa and Anna are the only two major female characters).

 

SPOILERS WITHIN

 

I don't think the thing about Elsa's parents being too restrictive is legitimate criticism for the movie, however. It's true that she probably would've been able to control her powers if her parents had been supportive about it, but that's the parent's fault, not the movie's (if that makes any sense). I think that was intentional. The troll guy completely freaked them out and they responded by freaking out on Elsa. They tried their best, but they were misguided.

 

Personally, I really like Anna as a character. I don't think she's selfish -- just impulsive, and ignorant of the big picture. She's been kept in the dark her whole life about her sister's powers, and has suffered for it, so I don't blame her for being a little bitter. It's clear that she loves Elsa and most of all she just wants to repair her relationship with her sister. I think her whole thing with Hans (and to a lesser extent, Kristoff) was being desperate for affection after her sister shut her out and her parents died. The trolls sort of mislead her about the whole "true love" thing -- the only option they presented was "true love's kiss!!" so she probably assumed that only romantic true love would work. I think she held this belief until the very end, when she decided to save Elsa instead, even though she had every reason to believe she would hide-- very unselfish, if you ask me! :) All that said, I definitely can see why you don't like her -- I just don't agree :)

 

Other issues I have with Frozen:

-Elsa's hair is a twist in the coronation scene, but a braid when she takes it down?!

-"And by the way, I don't see no ring!" Of course you don't, little troll -- Anna's wearing mittens!!

-Anna's boots. They're so tiny. I just... owch.

-Kristoff only gets, like, half a song??

-YOU CAN'T RIDE REINDEER

 

Sorry for the long post XD

I've seen Frozen twice already. I thought it was really good. My favorite character is Kristoff (although Sven is a close second xD).

I saw it!!

Went to see Frozen in theaters, and it's my new favorite movie!!<3
The Let It Go song was really inspiring for me, and I just can't get it out of my head! Idina Menzel can really sing.
Olaf was really cute, Elsa beautiful, and Anna and Kristoff made a funny team. (Oh! And Prince Hans too!!)
Cannot wait to buy it on DVD!!:D

I saw this movie, is pretty

I saw this movie, is pretty good. The songs are amazing, I have to admit. But my opinion is that it's story isn't so great. I saw lots of people saying they cried when they saw Frozen, but I didn't shed one tear. I saw lots of better movies, but everybody is free to have their own opinion. I still think that Dreamworks makes better movies than Disney, excluding the old Disney movies, like Snow White, 101 Dalmatians, Sleeping Beauty or The Beauty and The Beast.

Opinions opinions...

DreamWorks has made some pretty great films. However, I believe Frozen is a little more upscale in comparison to, well, lets say, TURBO. :/
...I do like HTTYD alot though! I'm just a music loving type, and I can't ever imagine Hiccup singing anything whatsoever. Like him all the same!:)
