Yesterday, without realizing it, I wrote my 100th post!
Congratulations to me!
Last weekend, Grig and I went to see Disney's Frozen. Three years ago, I remember that when Tangled came out, I was not very excited about it. The trailers looked stupid and generally I had been disappointed in Disney movies lately.
However, as some of you might remember, I came out of that theater with a new love. I watched Tangled four times in theater and pre-ordered it online. It was pretty much my favorite Disney movie since Emperor's New Groove.
So, I had high hopes going to see Frozen. I loved Tangled and Wreck-It-Ralph, and both had surprised and impressed me.
Frozen was no different. It had wonderful twists and an amazing plot. The characters were well-developed with problems that were easy to relate to. Grig came up with a wonderful comparison to mental-illness. I don't really want to say more, because I don't want to spoil anything.
The songs were equally wonderful. Our greatest fear going into the movie (after watching the trailers) was that the annoying snowman was going to ruin the show. To our surprise, he wasn't really that annoying after all. He actually was kind of funny!
We would like to go see it again.
Kevin didn't go with us, he went and played with some cousins (which I'm sure he enjoyed much more), but there are several parts we think he would really enjoy. We watched it in 2-D, but I don't think 3-D would make it that much better, because it was already a fantastic movie with a great plot and moral.
There is one mildly crude joke, but other than that, it was very clean and family friendly.
We highly recommend it.
Did I like it as much as Tangled? No, but it was very close. I REALLY like Tangled, and I really like Frozen.
I think the Frozen songs may be better.
