Re: Disney's Frozen - Grading and Discussion

Finally saw Frozen today. I absolutely loved it! Disney knocked its own tradition on its butt with this one!

First, Kristoff didn't remember that Anna was the girl he saw being saved by the trolls when he was a little boy. Secondly, everyone sane questioned why Anna was engaged to a guy she just met! That's new for Disney. And third, you don't have a prince saving the princess. The princess saved the queen and herself. Fourth, we had a queen that wasn't EVIL!

I felt like I was watching a Broadway play with the classic elements and, with the trolls' song, a touch of Avenue Q! Was that the same actress that played Gary Coleman that was the female troll?

As to the love interests.... Hans seemed to be the classic Disney prince... until he revealed himself to be a freaking jerk. I think it was intentional that we didn't know he was a villain until the reveal. We were all looking at the Duke of Weasel Town... And then Hans was a dirty... word that rhymes with plastered.
Kristoff by contrast wasn't going to try and sweep Anna off her feet, but was going to help her be better. I loved that!

The only real flaw I can think of is that the songs weren't spaced out enough. I know it worked well with the plot, but still it would've been nice to have more songs in the latter half of the movie. Hans should've had a song about his duality.

Other than that, AWESOME!!

Disney is doing a live stage Frozen musical.

Re: Disney's Frozen - Grading and Discussion

I saw this last week when it was 110F outside, I'm sure that contributed to my enjoyment of all the ice and snow.. really the best kids movie I've seen in a long time. I loved the visuals, the the nordic stuff.. the snowman who is the character I am usually irritated with was hilarious. I was totally swept away by it.

^ Holy frak that was epic-ally awesome!

I saw Frozen for the second time last Friday ... and I have to say, it's quite an incredible film. And the song, "Let It Go," is a powerful moment of liberation ... Definitely one of my favorite movies of all time.

Yeah I have been thinking I wouldn't mind seeing it again, a very attractive movie.

Re: Disney's Frozen - Grading and Discussion

I thought it was very clever that the main "villain" wasn't a character, but rather Elsa's own insecurities .. her fear. And yet, she wasn't remotely a villain - but a plausible, sympathetic character in her own right - "Let It Go" perfectly illustrating the conflict between controlling her abilities and emotions ... and setting them free ...

Not sure I want to hear it in 25 languages one after the other (!) but I'd definitely listen to the Norwegian version if you can find it. Almost prefer it to Idina's.

Re: Disney's Frozen - Grading and Discussion

Will Disney Make 'Frozen 2'?

In terms of worldwide grosses, Frozen has grossed $763 million worldwide, the 50th biggest grosser of all-time. Of films that have earned as much or more, only 2012 ($765m), E.T. ($792m), Inception ($825m), The Lion King ($987m), and Titanic $2.16b) have no sequels either in current existence on in active development. For the record, sequels for Independence Day, Alice In Wonderland, and Avatar are currently in development. Point being, nearly every single film that has earned the grosses on the level of Frozen has received a theatrical sequel or prequel. If Disney walks away from a theoretical Frozen 2, it will be a big deal simply because not making a sequel after an original makes this level of money is all-but-unprecedented.

This is not about whether there should be a theatrical Frozen 2, from an artistic point of view. There surely can be more stories to tell as the kingdom comes to terms with Elsa’s “totally not a metaphor for homosexuality” ice powers, as well as how the two mostly separated sisters adjust to actually be in each others’ lives again. But financially speaking, under pretty much any other circumstances, a theatrical sequel to Frozen would already be scheduled for Thanksgiving 2016 or 2017. That is what makes a discussion about Frozen 2 somewhat unique. With any other studio, a sequel to a film like Frozen, which doesn’t remotely close off potential for further storytelling (as opposed to something like Titanic, The Passion of the Christ, or 2012), it would be a foregone conclusion.

I know it's selfish, but I do want a Frozen 2.

If done right, another story from Arendelle could be excellent. We could see what happens when Elsa gets dumped...
