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
