I’ve decided to start a monthly cultural discussion about a book, movie, or TV show. My readers and I had a lot of fun when we did a discussion about The Hunger Games, so I’m excited about the possibilities of this. If you have suggestions on what you’d like to discuss, let me know in the comments!
So, without further ado, today’s topic of discussion is Disney’s Frozen. As I’m sure you know, since the film came out in November, Frozen mania has swept the nation with an unexpected fervor. If you haven’t seen it yet, I really do suggest that you do. It was worth seeing in theaters.
I don’t think it was perfect, though. I adored the way they wove the threads of true love in an unconventional but impactful way, redefining, in some ways, the theme that Disney has pounded out for years. I felt it had its problems, though. Feel free to comment with any of your thoughts about Frozen, but here are some questions to get you started:
- What was your favorite part/aspect of the film? Mine is hard to pin down, but I think it was the story between Anna and Elsa and the theme that love is laying down your life for someone. I loved the animation and the music and just about everything else about it, though.
- What, if anything, disappointed you the most? I felt like the backstory didn’t come full circle. I wanted a moment where Kristoff realized that Anna and Elsa were the two little girls he saw before he met the trolls. But that never seemed to come into play; it felt unfulfilled to me.
- Favorite song? I loved the soundtrack to this movie! And, unlike the songs from Tangled, which I love in the course of the film but which bore me on their own, these songs mesmerize me. As for which one was my favorite, I’m going to say Do You Want to Build a Snowman? Though one of the saddest songs in the movie, it tells such a poignant story. And it makes me cry just about every time I listen to it…
Jump into the conversation in the comments; I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
