Two Cort Ruddys debate his/their feelings on Disney’s recent smash.
I know it’s been said before, but that Frozen movie is really something. The Broadway-quality songs. The inspirational message that love conquers fear. It’s arguably the best Disney movie of all time.
If I hear one more person tell me how much they love Frozen, and how awesome those ridiculously mind-penetrating songs are, I will jump off the nearest bridge – and probably take them with me.
You really got to hand it to Disney this time. They finally poked fun at the notion of immediate, at-first-sight, true love, and focused on the real love we all feel for those we share our lives with, like siblings.
What the heck does Disney have against us parents? I could have told the king and queen, “Don’t get on the damned boat. You’re a parent in a Disney Movie. It’s like wearing a red shirt on a Star Trek away team. Your days are numbered.”
It’s really commendable how full of life Anna turns out when you think about the isolation she faced as a child. And, equally so, how grounded and almost selfless Elsa is, accepting exile to protect others, especially considering the power she possessed and other challenges she endured. It really shows the resilience and strength of the human spirit.
Yeah, Right. Rich kids who grow up in isolation and with immense power are always nice and loving. For some reason I can’t find the reality show where that’s the case.
My favorite song from the movie is, “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” So catchy and cute.
“Do You Want To Build a Snowman” is the most depressing three minutes of cartoon since the opening scene of Up.
My kids are just adorable; They sing all the songs, all the time—in the car, in the kitchen, when we are actually building a snowman. I can’t get enough of it. They’ve even practiced all the moves to “Let It Go.” Oh, you should see it.
If I hear “Let It Go” one more time, I’m going to have my eardrums surgically removed.
I so love this.
Please make it stop.
