    Good review Tyler. You seem to be the only one who doesn’t like it, but that isn’t a bad thing.

    It’s not often I disagree with you but here we are. I don’t have problems with the why of it all. It’s often the nature of fairy tales that magical elements simply exist. For example, the trolls, it totally made sense that we’re just going to visit these magical creatures.

    “In Frozen, however, it feels like every character is here for the first time, which kept me from really being able to relax and accept the world being presented.” This struck me as an interesting complaint because the majority of the characters in the movie ARE where they are for the first time. The sisters have been isolated their whole life, the people visiting their kingdom have never been inside the gates, Olaf the snowman has literally been alive for a day and half, and Kristoff lives with trolls. So the fact that everyone seems to be experiencing the world for the first time seems very deliberate.

    The music felt closest to a Broadway style where we get a song essentially whenever someone is feeling an emotion or to introduce a character. I loved all of them, but my complaint is more that they disappear in the final act. Though “Let It Go” might be the best song in a Disney movie since “Circle of Life”

    I like the reference to the ice cluster sequence in Titan A.E. That was a film I saw in the theater back in 2000. That was my first DVD. That was definitely one film that was criminally overlooked by mainstream audiences.
