Those pictures are from Disneyland, I was joined by my sister Laura and my lady Crystal.
And for my final Disney related piece (for this week anyway) here is a brief review of “Frozen“:
Short version: I loved it. On par with “Wreck-It Ralph” in my opinion, and overall a great effort. In the past 10 years or so Pixar has overshadowed Disney. In doing the math I realized that while I’ve watched every Pixar movie released, I have skipped watching Disney Animated films in the theater from 2001 to 2010, 2011’s “Winnie the Pooh” being the first Disney Animated movie I watched in a theater in a decade. I feel that in most of those instances Pixar put out the better film but for the past 3 years Disney Animation Studios has outshined Pixar.
“Frozen” is a return to traditional Disney musicals in the best sense. I really enjoyed the songs and how they moved the story forward for the most part. There isn’t a song I didn’t like and really enjoyed the voice acting/singing as well. The story wasn’t as straight-forward as I thought it would be and had many twists and turns that were surprising. Quite possibly the best reinvention of the Disney Princess to date.
It would be very difficult to choose a stand-out from the movie and just had a great experience beginning to end. I will leave you with the fact that I loved Olaf the Snow-Man and he had a great solo song called “In Summer”. I’ve posted the video below, it’s a great song and a great video, if you want to save it for the movie then don’t go any further. The movie is highly recommended for Disney fans and is probably on my Top 10 movies for the year. Thanks for reading!
