As you may know, Frozen, Disney’s latest animated film, just became the highest grossing animated film of all time, as well as the 10th highest grossing film of all time. Let me begin by saying that I love this movie. The film has good characters, good songs, great animation, and a solid story. It also deconstructs and parodies a lot of the old Disney tropes, such as instantly falling in love and the “a true love’s kiss will break the spell” plot device.
However, the amount of people who are absolutely crazy about this film is ridiculous. Numerous people I know, as well as commenters I’ve seen on the internet, still gush over how great this movie is, sing its musical numbers, and quote it. If I hear one more person sing “Let it Go”, I’ll probably get an aneurysm. Yes, it’s a solid film, but people act like it’s the second coming of Christ. In my opinion, the film is nowhere near the quality of many of the Disney Renaissance films. Beauty and the Beast, as well as The Lion King, blow Frozen out of the water.
The hype, as a consequence, is actually affecting the opinions of many individuals who go to see the film. A few of my friends saw Frozen recently, but hated it as the film did not live up to the immense amount hype that surrounds it. Despite all this, the hype goes on, and on, and on…
Please guys, just let it go.
…I’ll see myself out.
