How are there not more reactions to tonight’s ep?! I have two college finals tomorrow, so I’ll have to make this quick because I need my sleep, but HOLY SHIT, THAT LAST SECOND! GEEZ!
I don’t know whether to be happy or sad! T_____T He used his one wish to save her, but he had to suffer instead! AUGH! Knave, baby!
I can’t wait until March to see what happens! T____T I wanted Knalice to go to Storybrooke together and be happy, damn it! T____T
(Anastasia, please go away. You don’t deserve their trust and especially not Will’s forgiveness. You’re not convincing anyone
except maybe Cyrus. …Is he falling for her or was I the only one who got that vibe?.)
Like…I’m serious. I was waiting for MONTHS for this movie. I was really excited (and not just because Hans Christian Andersen is one of my favorite authors ever).
But…the movie, at least for me, fell short.
The animation was pretty great, but there seemed something so…plastic about it, never mind all the mistakes I kept noticing everywhere. (And I know they did their best, but…come on, there were a lot of them, way more than I’ve ever noticed in a Disney movie before!)
The songs…eh. I was really excited for the songs ‘cause, come on, it’s Disney, for crying out loud! But…they really disappointed me. I even tried listening to just the instrumentals, but I couldn’t figure out what the melodies were, I was so confused. And the vocals… They didn’t excite me either. In fact, I thought they were rather bad in a lot of places. The lyrics themselves…they didn’t really seem that bad; might have had a bad flow, but that could also more than likely be the vocals again since that’s what I was giving most of my attention.
The pacing felt really, really off, too. Like, seriously, the trailer made it look like they were going to have the whole journey going up the mountain. And while I was a little skeptical then (“How the hell are they going to make a whole movie around a freaking mountain?”), I truly believe that would have been better than what actually happened.
Oh, they went up the mountain, got hurt, scurried back down, the end. That’s basically what it was for me. It felt way too quick. Every other Disney movie has a beginning, middle, and end, pretty much very clearly defined. This one, though, at least for me, felt like it was all so rushed that I couldn’t really tell which was which part when. Ugh. As a writer, that’s severely frustrating on a lot of levels.
Honestly, though, what I think really suffered was the characters, never mind the plot! I couldn’t really get attached to any of the characters. I liked Kristoff (more when he was introduced/in the commercials than in the rest of it), and I sort of liked Hans at first (till they got to the lovey-dovey-turned-mostly-generic-two-faced villain bullshit), but otherwise…I really didn’t like any of the characters that much. I just didn’t really feel like they had much depth to them, and I was seriously disappointed in that. I mean, the same amount of time has been given to just about every single Disney movie ever made, and yet, just about all of them had serious depth! But…at least from what I saw…not this one. And that was sad for me, especially since I hold Disney movies in such high regard.
Oh, and the plot. I just…it felt really…everywhere, all over the place. It didn’t stay long enough in one spot to catch its breath, for me to catch my own breath, before it moved on. Seriously, hon, slow the heck down! It’s not the end of the world if you reach a little bit past that hour and a half mark! Dear God! (And if it does, you know…trim off the unimportant stuff!
I’m sure more goes into it than that. I’m not trying to be disrespectful.)
And…I liked that we were getting a sibling family angle. That was nice for a change, especially since it was two adult girls. The parents’ death was very abrupt and heartbreaking in just a single scene (the storm), and I really appreciated that, too.
But…other than that? I didn’t see how the incantation/formula/magic words or prophecy or whatever worked. It just…seemed to be way too convenient and quick and far too easy. There really was no buildup whatsoever. (They really should have handled the ‘frozen heart’ thing better. A couple second animation clip of her heart actually freezing or the freezing process every couple minutes or whatever would have made it seem at least a little less forced and kind of overly-dramatic-as-shit. Definitely would have been nice.)
The ‘villain’ was rather pathetic, too, half-baked plan with no back up and shit. What a dumbass.
Oh! And the romance. …I’m not a romance person anyway. I don’t like it. I’m nearly twenty-one and have always been single, have never had a boyfriend and loved it that way, and I plan on being single the rest of my life. I’m perfectly happy with that. Now, with Disney movies and a select few other TV/movies/video game/book series, I make an exception to this rule…
But the (**SPOILER!**) Hans/Anna thing totally wasn’t it for me. I mean, I know now that Hans was just a jackass liar, but when I didn’t know that (but suspected) and he was suddenly perfect for Anna and they were gonna get married after a few hours of fun together (anyone else think of “Enchanted” when Kristoff was like, “You’re going to marry someone you just met?!”)…I call bullshit.
Okay, I know Anna’s been shut away for years. She’s probably been reading hundreds and thousands of romance stories, fairy tales of other worlds and such, but oftentimes even those stories speak of waiting, discerning, and finding a girl’s true love, being sure, not just picking up the first guy that likes the same chocolate you do and! Fuck, Anna, remember those stories, girl! God!
It’s not just her fault, though! Kristoff does the same exact thing! Since he’s always been an orphan and either living with Sven (and the other icemen?) somewhere or with the Trolls, he’s probably had very little to zero experience with actual human women his age. Understandable, sure, but then he meets Anna…and falls for her. Pretty much just like that.
They go up the mountain, he’s mildly to severely annoyed with her and is going to leave her at one point due to said irritation.
Then, they meet Elsa, Anna gets struck, and he suddenly loves her. He runs her back down the mountain to be cured, she is, and then they live happily ever after.
That’s it. The first girl he ever meets, and that’s his true love forever after.
I just…ugh. I think I completely forgot where I was going with this.
It’s finals week at college. Enough said, am I right?
So…maybe you liked “Frozen,” maybe you didn’t. Whichever side you’re on is fine with me. This was just my little thing that’s been stewing for weeks that I finally had to let out.
Have a nice day.
I haven’t been so in love with a soundtrack since Tarzan
Frozen has managed to overpower the Tarzan soundtrack
As I do every finals season, I broke down and opened up my sketchbook. I’ve had that alerted version of Let It Go (x) in my head for a while and I was thinking how cool the story would have been if Elsa was a male character. So here you go, gender bent Elsa from Frozen.
I got lazy with his left hand.
That actually could have worked better, considering the BASIS of the story… XD
ok olaf just showed up
dislike him sorry
I wasn’t a huge fan myself, so no worries here. XD
Can we just take a moment to acknowledge that while Alice forgot who Cyrus was, she remembered Will.
…I never thought of that.
Well, 7 episodes in and yep all I still see is a knalice future!!!!
Thank god that class is over.
That teacher was a dumbass.
I had to write a paper on what I thought something in the book symbolizes, and I thought I wrote a very convincing paper with quite a bit of evidence.
My teacher marked me down pretty much for the sole reason that he disagreed with me.
I know that feel, bro.
Had that problem with my English prof last semester. She told us the whole time that any interpretation of the readings is fine. So, I interpreted a reading (that I’d read three times over the course of my schooling) and wrote the essay, turned it in, and I thought it was, like you said, pretty darn convincing. And yet, she hands it back and says, ‘You misinterpreted the story, so you get a B.’
Hated that class. So patronizingly easy it was laughable (and annoying as hell). XP
I want to keep writing this One Piece nakamaship/RoLu frienship/family fic (I’m almost done!), but I’m so tired I can’t see the screen straight, and my cramps are distracting me like all hell.
This is my final for my foundations of design class. All by hand. Total hours? 10. I’m done.
THAT IS BEAUTIFUL.
we’re watching frozen for the fourth time today
Wait, how…and why?
