  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Media Reviews: Frozen

Grade: A

Disney’s newest animated movie “Frozen” stars Kristin Bell as Anna the princess of Arandelle, and Idina Mensel as Elsa, the Snow Queen and Anna’s older sister.

The movie focuses on Anna trying to find true love and bringing her sister back to Arandelle after her powers caused Arandelle to be in an eternal winter.

Along the way she meets Kristoff [Johnathan Gross] the ice salesmen, and his reindeer Sven.

Before leaving Arandelle Anna met Hans, a prince who came for Elsa’s coronation that Anna became engaged to the very day she met him.

The entirety of the movie you spend wondering who the real bad guy is. Is it Elsa? Is it the angry Duke of Weselton? Is it Hans?

This is something that Disney rarely does in their movies; it is generally stated from the very beginning of the movie who the villain is. The switch is definitely something new for Disney, and I hope they continue to keep things the same.

The animation in the movie is stunning. I can only imagine how long doing some of the ice castle scenes took. The detail that was put into them is unprecedented.

Despite my extreme love of Disney, and Disney princesses as a whole, I do not consider myself a fan of musical movies. Especially not the most recent Disney movies where the songs are more cheesy than enjoyable. “Frozen” is not much different. There is the endless amount of feel good, kid-friendly songs or the kid-friendly, internal-struggle songs.

Somehow despite the near endless amount of musical numbers in Disney movies, I find myself continually attracted to them. There is something about the Disney magic that makes the musical hater in me still love it.

The movie had a twist ending that I wasn’t sure if I saw coming or not. For the first time in a while during a Disney movie, I was not entirely certain how it was going to end. I thought one thing was going to happen and the next thing I know the plot took an unexpected turn. It kept me more interested than I generally already am for being a self-proclaimed Disney freak.

Overall, I definitely recommend the movie to other people. It was a very sweet movie that wasn’t too childish. The movie moved very quick, and there were no points in it where things were dragging.
