1/10: An astonishing disappointment
Friday, November 29, 2013

Spoilers) At one time, sisters Elsa and Anna knew of and loved to utilize Elsa's (unexplained, apparently genetic? even though no one else in her family has them) ice powers. Then an accident and a warning by the (ostensibly) wise troll – that fear will make Elsa's powers dangerous – prompts her parents to fearfully seclude her, shutting her away from everyone and isolating her from her sister. The trolls erase Anna's memory of Elsa's powers. (No one apparently considers the implications of seclusion and terror regarding the power). The girls grow up. After their parents die at sea, Elsa becomes queen. For her coronation, the kingdom is opened. Prince Hans and the Duke of Weselton are among the visiting dignitaries. Anna promptly falls in love with the prince, and agrees to marry him. When the queen refuses to condone her sister's impetuous match, they argue and Elsa accidentally reveals her powers, prompting the Duke to demand...

8/10: Frozen – Flawed Masterpiece
Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Frozen is a legitimately great film but also a flawed one.First, let's look at a few flaws, then admire its successes.Frozen's biggest shortcoming is in not making Elsa, its most interesting character, the main protagonist and main heroine of the movie. As it is, she is a co-protagonist, but Anna is given far more screen time.Yet Anna's story is nowhere near as interesting as is Elsa's. Where Anna merely seems bored and a little lonely at the beginning, we know that Elsa suffers terribly throughout her young life, in being forced to inhibit her emotions, live with the guilt of nearly killing her sister, and seclude herself, in order to protect Anna from the danger that her magic poses. Yet we barely see Elsa's side of the story.But when Elsa transforms into the Snow Queen during her Let It Go sequence, that's when we especially wish and expect to...

1/10: Frozen is arguably the worst Disney film ever made. It should be titled "Han's Tale
Monday, March 24, 2014

By "worst Disney movie" I do not mean the worst movie ever made. I hold Disney to a higher standard. So when I saw this film, with all of its hype, I came out of it not only disappointed, but utterly frustrated. This film, save its visuals, does very little right.So when we think of Disney, we think of a few major plot devices: the predictable romance, the villain who drives the conflict, and the moral that the film presents. Unfortunately this movie fails in all of these regards.Regarding romance it surprisingly includes it in the tale. I know Disney makes alterations to classic fairy tales, and often adds romance to enliven them, but the Snow Queen is an exception to the rule. The focus of the tale is not on the romantic element, but the mystery of the Snow Queen, and the mysterious mirror that reflects evil in souls. This concept alone is fascinating, but is never...

8/10: Frozen
Monday, December 30, 2013

I saw the preview trailer for this, where the snowman sneezed and lost his carrot nose, and the opposite side of a lake a reindeer skidding towards it. This was a teaser for the real Disney film, a reversioning of the story The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson, and I was looking forward to it. Basically, in the Kingdom of Arendelle, the princess Elsa (Idina Menzel) has cryokinetic powers, which means she can summon ice and snow through her hands, she and her younger sister Anna (Kristen Bell) used to be very close as children, but she accidentally injured her younger sister while playing as children, so the King (Maurice LaMarche) and the Queen have the Grand Pabbie the Troll King (Ciarán Hinds) heal and erase the memory of Anna knowing that her sister has powers. As they have grown up they have drifted apart, with Elsa forced to wear gloves, as she has not learned to control her...

1/10: Pretty bad
Friday, November 29, 2013

This is one of the worst movies of the entire season! The storyline was not well-thought out. Considering they shelved the project multiple times and only picked it up again after the success of Tangled, they should have shelved it again until they further thought out the storyline! Frozen's singers don't cut it. I don't mind pop singers like in Tangled, Princess Frog and Brave, but these ones were just bad! You literally struggle to hear them over the instruments that are playing during the songs they sing. During some songs, it sounds as if the singers sometimes practically give up on singing altogether and just shout. There's a duet of the sisters in particular that I'm referring to (For The First Time in Forever (Reprise)). The animation and audio quality did not match the songs. This is most evident in the song Let It Go. The words don't match the lip movement...
