Believe me, I know I'm late to this party. But when it comes to seeing Disney films in the theater, it usually involves waiting until I can take my nephews. That being said, Frozen is a Disney film for all ages, a film that anyone can appreciate. I don't want to waste any more time, let's go!
What I liked about the film:
Kristen Bell. She plays a princess who is eccentric and adventurous at heart. She lives in a castle with her sister, Elsa, played by Idina Menzel. Elsa is a Queen with magic powers that allows her to create ice/snow from her hands. Menzel played the lead character on Broadway's Wicked. The sisters have been forced to live apart, in the same house, for years. So they are just now getting to know each other, in their adult years.
Jonathan Groff. The character is a manly man who falls for Anna, while on a journey to find Elsa. Josh Gad rounds out the main characters, as a lovable snowman that the sister's dreamt up when they were younger, and is now alive. Gad's subtle, yet perfect comedic style worked perfectly for the character.
The Not So Cliche
The movie had several opportunities to jump the shark and fall back on cliche story devices. Especially the climax of the film. But it doesn't! It goes down a different path, towards originality that we rarely see in animated films. I'm trying to be discrete here; so if you see the film, Tweet me and let me know what you think.
What I didn't like about the film:
A Predictable Ending
Another 'One of my Favorite Disney Movie'
For me, Frozen was even better than Tangled, and I absolutely loved that film. The story, the actors, the animation and the songs were all terrific. It was entertaining, exciting and emotional throughout. The climax will have grown men holding back tears. Just really good filmmaking from the studio whose been doing it since the 1930's. I totally recommend Frozen to people of all ages.
