On Monday night, I finally saw Frozen. Yeah, I know it came out two years ago. I believe I wanted to see it at the time, but Mom said it was a “kid’s movie,” implying it was somehow beneath me.
Anyway, in case I wasn’t the last person on earth who hasn’t seen it, here’s a quick synopsis from imdb:
When the newly crowned Queen Elsa accidentally uses her power to turn things into ice to curse her home in infinite winter, her sister, Anna, teams up with a mountain man, his playful reindeer, and a snowman to change the weather condition.
It was good, but I found myself wanting more. One of the critics’ quotes they used in the trailers was “The best Disney movie since The Lion King“, or something to that effect. I think that is a slight overstatement. In the beginning of the movie, I was anticipating “Let It Go” so much that it was hard to focus on what was happening in the plot. After “Let It Go,” there were a few action scenes, but they weren’t anything to write home about. I enjoyed it, but it didn’t live up to all the hype that influenced my high expectations. I don’t know exactly what I was looking for, but I was disappointed when my expectations were not met.
