    Wonderful addition to classic Disney canon

    “Frozen” is certainly one of my new favorite Disney movies, although that may not be that selective of a group. In my opinion, Disney film animation is at its best when it is doing it’s best, and that’s musical fairy tales. Just like they have taken quite a few liberties with the source material before, the same is the case here, with the original Hans Christian Andersen story “The Snow Queen” being present in only the barest sense, but that hardly matters at all because this film is a delight from beginning to end. However, this film is not without its own Disney clichés either. We have two princesses now, but also cue the dead king and queen. Still, this film does its best to break as many conventional molds as it can. Queen Elsa does not need nor even desire a charming prince to save her. The romance here is reserved for her younger sister Anna, who is adorably naïve and hilarious in her own right with her reactions. There is a degree of self-awareness on Disney’s part in that particular aspect, almost in a self-parodying manner similar to that in “Enchanted.” The twist at the end concerning the villain was unexpected enough to legitimately surprise me, and in a good way. It can drag for a bit towards the end, and it overall has a problem depicting the passage of time well, but that doesn’t take away from the warm experience that “Frozen” delivers. The comic relief characters, the animal and the goofball Olaf, were not as annoying as I might have expected from the promotional material; quite the contrary actually. They are both a delight and that little snowman should replace Frosty as the definitive jolly happy soul in a package of human-shaped frozen water. As expected of a Disney film, much of this film’s charm and success are closely tied the music. In a move that I greatly appreciate and seems to be recurring more with this studio as of late, all of the voice actors also do their own singing. If I recall correctly, both “Tangled” and “The Princess and the Frog” also did this, but not since “Beauty and the Beast” had it been done before that. At any rate, this cast is wonderful. In particular, Kristen Bell has as much innocence and charm to her singing as Jodie Benson and Paige O’Hara. And, of course, Idina Menzel has proven herself to be in a class all her own. She delivers, in all the best senses of that word, this film’s killer single “Let It Go,” which has become so popular in such a short amount of time, I doubt I need to elaborate much on it. Needless to say, it resonates strongly with anyone who hasn’t fit in at some point in their lives, which is pretty much everyone, and is now as iconic as “Under the Sea.” “For the First Time in Forever” also hits several emotional points wonderfully, its own “Belle” that’s fantastic. The first few stanzas of “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” are so overly cute, they will probably give you diabetes. This is not to say, however, that the soundtrack is all hits; there are a couple of misses. Kristoff’s bit is creepier than it is endearing, the opening song about ice is as forgettable as that sounds, and the trolls’ song towards the end is kind of stupid. Overall, whatever very minor faults this film has doesn’t detract from the fact that this is a modern instant classic. “Frozen” will go down in Disney history has great and as iconic as anything from its Renaissance era or the Golden Age. No one can go wrong with this film, as children and adults of all ages will absolutely adore it as I do. Basically, if you don’t like this film, it is you who has a cold heart.

    Unexpected Excellence

    I went to the theater expecting the usual dumb kids movie, and was blown away. I LOVED this film and instantly added the DVD to my wishlist. Honestly, my favorite movies are The Hunt for the Red October, Galaxy Quest, Pixar's Incredibles, Princess Bride, Ponyo, Sound of Music, and Lord of the Rings Extended Editions. I gravitate to no particular genre, but only to what I find are the absolute best movies. Frozen is up there with the best movies I have ever seen. Period. Why is this film so good? 1. It teaches real love. Love is about putting the other person's needs first. Love is shown in your actions not your words. I am so floored that a kids movie actually taught this and even took the time to point out you never get engaged or married to a guy you just met. WOW... a Disney film not about being swept off your feet by a guy in 3 seconds? Its about time. 2. The side kick characters are not annoying.... seriously!! Its like the difference between Jar Jar Binks and R2D2. These side kicks are more like R2D2 whereas past Disney sidekicks were like Jar Jar Binks. These side-kicks from the reindeer to snow monster were done exactly right. They add humor to the show and dimension without ever getting in the way of the story or you wanting to strangle them. Way to go Disney!!! Any way you can retroactively edit sidekicks in older films? 3. The plot themes are serious yet with enough humor that it doesn't feel too serious AND without the humor taking away from the story line. What a great balance to hit just right. Ok so the story line is a bit simplistic because its a kid movie, but it still has twists and turns. I did not find the story predictable because I was expecting another one of those princesses falling in love movies.. and this was not typical. The story teaches important themes like what love really is, the weight of responsibility, how to use power rightly vs. wrongly, and empathy for others. 4. Great music. The opening song grabs you and whisks you away to another world. Every song helps you connect more deeply to each character... and pulls you deeper into the story. I have never felt so much empathy in a musical since Fiddler on the Roof... and I'm not that emotional of a person. So if you have daughters, grandchildren, nieces, or work in childcare... get this movie. You will be able to watch it over and over without going insane. The kids will learn what true love really is and what to watch out for in love.... its not what all those other princess movies teach. So you can rest easy.

    Historical transition to CG animation's complete.

    This movie musical made the transition from old cell animation to CG animation complete just like the transition from Black & White animation to color one. During the development process of CG animation, CG artists' goal were to make animation characters more realistic. Their challenge has shown in the progression of how they make characters' hair real. However, after the CG animators' challenge in Final Fantasy, their aim turned around from animation "more realistic" to simply transformation from cell animation with effortless (and costless), and pioneering animators' could not do (or really hard to do) with cells such as blurring a part of a scene. When the CG animators started making software, no one thought they would make CG Snoopy movie which will open soon. About the movie Frozen itself, the last scene was predictable, and no relation whatsoever to the Andersen's Snow Queen except traveling with a reindeer. They should not even mention it based on the Snow Queen since it does not have lesson for the children from the naivety of the fairy tale, but influenced by X-Men. Hooray for Pixer got rid of Eisner, and buying Disney, but regrettably saying Pixer staffs cannot make great original movies anymore because they lost edgy spirits, and became wealthy. It's ashamed, and such a bummer for Pixer supporters.

    Best Buy Had This In Stock When Others Didn't!

    I love that Best Buy had this movie in stock when Walmart did not! My family and I were hoping to get a copy of it and were disappointed to see that Walmart had sold out. I purchase all of my electronics from Best Buy and am going to consider starting to purchase my movies from them as well. With Walmart, you don't know if an item has been used and re-stocked, but with Best Buy, you know that you're always getting a brand new product or if it's used, it's clearly marked as used and "as is." I love Best Buy and will continue to shop with them in the future. I highly recommend! : ) Also, you will love this movie! It's a contradiction of two life paths--one free and ready to embrace the world and the other, concealed and hidden, afraid to live all that she was created to be. The story touches heavily on the beauty of true love and laying down your life for another. One of the memorable lines from the movie was, "An act of love can melt a frozen heart." I cried and cried watching this movie because it is written so well. The songs are catchy, the animation is amazing and it is a personal favorite for sure! Get your own copy today--you'll be glad you did! :) (And make sure you get it at Best Buy--I shop here all the time and know that you'll love them just as much as I do).

    Ok Movie. I didn't care for it, our kids like it.

    In my humble opinion, this film is just ok. The snowman was the best part. Without him, this would have been pretty boring. The story line is underdeveloped and doesn't answer a lot of the essential questions like: why does Elsa have powers? Why are powers considered "bad"? Even though the trolls have powers and they are good? Are there other people with powers? Most of the time is filled up with mediocre annoying songs (which occur every 5-10 minutes), except for the main title song Let it Go, which was really the only good song in the film. If you have kids and they love this movie, they will probably drive you crazy singing all the songs. The graphics and special effects weren't too bad. Some of it was actually quite pretty. You may even shed a tear at the end because most people can relate to the feeling that their different from other people. All in all, it's a good family film for the kids, but I found it lacking in the "appealing to all ages" department. TOO many songs, not enough of an interesting 'story' and too many open ended questions. Tangled was much better in my opinion...and in 3D. Disney chose not to release this version in 3D. Not a factor in my rating, but just another small reason this is just an ok film.

    BEST DISNEY MOVIE YET

    Oh what a fresh breath of air. This is a disney movie, but is more on the different side and yet darker. It's not your typical disney "princess" movie where the princess falls in love with prince charming and happily ever after. It has many twists and keeps your interest in watching because of the tension the film brings. It's also brings lots of laughs and original catchy songs. I think one of the best things about the movie is the characters. Elsa isn't exactly a bad guy she just has problems controlling her power and fear. Anna, is a loving sister who doesn't exactly know why her sister keeps hiding herself and she wants to help her. I found the film's animation wonderful too. The ice and snow both looked dazzling! But, I do think the film is somewhat uneven, it felt a little rushed and a unsatisfying at the ending. Overall, I found the dvd pleasant to watch I think many will too!

    Great movie with bad features

    As by now everyone with access to a computer knows that Frozen is pretty much one of the best movies to come out of Disney in a long time, and that's saying a lot. I was super excited when Frozen came out on Blu-Ray and of course immediately went out to purchase my copy. The DVD features sounded amazing, a Making of Documentary, and the story of Walt Disney's connection to the Hans Christian Andersen stories. However upon viewing both of these documentaries they weren't even documentaries. The "Making of" documentary was just a 4 minute long song that had already been preleaked online with absolutely no actual making of the movie mentioned at all and the connection of Disney and Andersen stories was literally a very quick interview talking about how the idea had been one brought up by Disney many years ago in the early stages of their film making and had been shelved. Over all the movie and quality are exactly what I expected and are phenomenal, but the extras associated with this movie are abysmal and highly disappointing.

    I hate this movie

    I can't stand FROZEN. My wife and I watched it a few years ago, after it came out on DVD/Blu-Ray and I was flabbergasted as to why there was such a buzz about it. Elsa is THE WORST. But, if you hate it, why did you buy it and how on earth did you give it 5 stars?!? Well, my daughter is 2. She got the flu over the summer and to prevent her from moving around because she was throwing up often, my wife sat her down on some plastic covered by towels and rented FROZEN OnDemand. She absolutely LOVED it. At the time she wasn't really on screen time - she only watched it to prevent vomiting EVERYWHERE, we wanted to keep the puke in one place. Well, not too long ago, FROZEN came on ABC. We recorded it and our daughter watched it a few days later. Then, we found ourselves short on DVR space, so I erased it. I said I would buy it for Christmas. It was my daughter's favorite gift.
