Re: Disney's Frozen - Grading and Discussion

A friend of mine wrote this about the movie:
...you know a girl power movie has problems when your seven year old daughter turns to you and says, “Why doesn’t the mother ever say anything?”
A thought that came to my mind when Elsa built her snow fort was, "And how and what is she going to eat?"

^ No mystery there. She's going to live off the carcasses of slaughtered sentient snowmen.

I'm planning on taking my daughter to a sing-along showing of the film sometime this weekend. I'm looking forward to it.

It's a common Disney trope that Disney parents are dead or dies at the start of the movie. That or the mother is dead/absent/evil while the father is the scatterbrained well meaning parent.

We're on Long Island and went to the UA Westbury and saw the sing along version last night. It was a lot of fun, movie was mostly packed and a lot of kids and adults sang.

Woman cannot live on snow alone.

We're on Long Island and went to the UA Westbury and saw the sing along version last night. It was a lot of fun, movie was mostly packed and a lot of kids and adults sang.
It's too bad the UA Westbury had such a late start time today. I went to the Raceway theaters over by Roosevelt Field this morning because they had a 10:30 showing ... but they had no sound for the film. It was a shame, because the theater was comfortably filled with parents and kids who were really looking forward to the show (different groups of kids spontaneously broke out into various renditions of "Let It Go" during the eerily silent previews and such - really cute).

But after thirty minutes past the start time with no sound ... I walked out accepted free passes and free small popcorn vouchers ... then went to a small, nearly empty theater in Great Neck.

It didn't have the same festive feeling as the Raceway did, but my daughter had a blast, though ... and that's what matters most. Sure, it helped the movie make more this weekend than last weekend, but it really was a neat experience for fans.

Frozen beats Despicable Me 2 to become the biggest animated film of 2013, and the third biggest movie right behind Catching Fire and Iron Man 3.

Congratulations to Disney for this unexpected breakout hit.

Re: Disney's Frozen - Grading and Discussion

It certainly was unexpected. I think the marketing helped. By playing up the Olaf/Sven humor in the trailers, I was completely unaware about the main story. And I imagine I wasn't alone. So when that story turned out to be so good, the positive word-of-mouth created the kind of buzz that has helped the film keep its legs for as long as it has.

Frozen will have to make another 57 million before it beats Despicable Me 2. It's all about the international gross nowadays!

It hasn't opened in China or Japan yet, so another 57 million is very likely.

I loved this movie. One of the best films I've seen all year. I thought Kristen Bell was amazing voicing the main character.
