Frozen (2013)

Let it go, Let it go, can’t hold it back any more!

Feels right, that while I am in Disney World, I should be watching this movie as part of my series. I will confess the journey to this movie for me wasn’t your conventional path.   I came to this one very late.  In fact, I came to it only because of my youngest son, doing a parody of the Elsa ‘cold didn’t bother me anyway’ strut.  So because of that, I had to explore the song to which he was inspired from and found the iconic Let it Go.

I was hooked.  It then took me a long time before I actually watched the movie.  Small confession time.  I went to Disney World in Orlando back in August, and watched the Frozen stage show before I had actually seen the movie.   So to say I was late to the Frozen party is an under statement.

I then watched this movie for the first time, with my youngest back in August.  It was cute and fun to watch it through the eyes of a 9 year old boy.

However, fast forward a few months, here I watch it without the wonderment of a 9 year old.

The movie is okay.  The songs are okay, apart from the classic, Let it go.  The overall movie I personally find to be adequate but no where near as good as say The Lion King.   The Lion King was more than just a single song, which I fear Frozen suffers from.    Sure there are some excellent ‘b’ sides, but take away Let it go and would the rest of them stand on their own?  I doubt it.

While this movie is Disney’s (and the worlds) most successful animation, I rate it #3 behind Lion King and The Little Mermaid.

Now that said, I am huge Let it go fan.  I love Elsa and find her as erotic as you can find an animated character to be (we will talk about the Disney Hercules singers at a later date).

So all in all, great movie, some what loses it after the big number is played.

#101 in the series
