10 Reasons Why Disney’s Frozen SUCKS AND WILL ALWAYS SUCK

I can’t believe this is happening.  Why in the Hell are we bothering with this stupid review?  Whatever, anyway, that’s right, this article deserved a full-out CAPS assault to get your attention, and also to get more hits on Google.  Sometimes we do odd things around here.  We’re sure you all feel cool being ultra underground, learning about bands like Pollution, black metal from countries you never knew existed, movies most people are afraid to watch, it’s all just too cool.  So why in the Hell are we bothering with some pop-culture trash like Frozen?  That’s part of the beauty of being so elite and legit underground.  Part of the reason we got here in the first place is we got sick of the lack of substance and creativity above, and learning what that stuff really means down here, well, it enables us to completely trash pop-culture when it needs it.  That means yes, we are trashing this film.  We’re going to trash this piece of garbage in the most underground way possible, with a top ten list.

So, what are we all about here?  My wife and I, after hearing all the rave reviews from friends, some of whom we trusted until now, decided to take a quick Redbox trip and see what it was all about.  We saw Tangled a few years ago, and honestly it was a pretty good film and sometimes self-aware.  Groundbreaking?  No.  Something we’d watch again?  Sure, maybe, it was okay, and that’s fine.  Expected the same out of Frozen, but we received the agony of watching one of the worst films ever made.  We’re talking Waterishtarworldgate level here.  Yep, said it, this film sucks something awful like that portmanteau.  Here are the ten reasons why, in no particular order so that calling it a “top” list makes as much sense as calling the film “good.”  We hate it so bad around here it didn’t even deserve to be considered a media review, because it hints at the greater problems that Disney still has as a corporation interested in worldwide dominance of your pathetic mind.  But we had to stick to format.

 

1. Ruined the source content.

Sure, probably everyone knows that Frozen was based on Hans Christian Andersen’s genius The Snow Queen, but do you really know how far it diverged from the plot?  It’s a lot, like a really lot.  Adaptation is fine, but with such an ingenious story on so many levels, it hurts to see it so watered-down to appease a mass audience of fools.  The central factor here is it’s a fairy tale.  Fairy tales, by nature, require the audience to suspend reality, so if you mix too much of the “real” in there it degrades the idea of it all.  Hint, that’s exactly what Frozen does with The Snow Queen.  Luckily for true film fans out there, the Soviets, of all people, made a faithful, animated version of it in 1957, which you can watch for free right here.

2. Original altered to stock drivel.

This continues our first point.  Frozen in adapting, or better to say completely altering the original story, has simply utilized stock ideas from the Disney profit-princess concept to make another set of birthday party napkins for you toss in the trash, covered with cake that was so delicately designed with Elsa on the top of it.  That’s right, keep eating, go ahead, EAT ALL OF IT.  Really, it’s pathetic what they did.  Princess, guy to fall in love with who’s really not a good guy, other guy you know she’ll actually fall in love with, can it get more obvious?  There’s nothing wrong with sticking to a format, but an obvious format does not a good movie make, so stop right there.  It’s the most typical story ever told, without a lick of creativity.  If you make it obvious, you need to be very clever with the development. Some people think this was what was actually clever about it, but we’ll address that at the end.

3. Wooden characters.

Even for stock ideas of good/evil you need to have some attachments and dislike for characters.  Classic can be good, but only if you retain these sensations with proper development, which Frozen does not.  As soon as you see Kristoff, that rugged yo ho mountain man with his trusty sidekick elk you know immediately he’s going to be the main love interest.  He’s just there for a moment and you say, “yep, there’s that guy.”  The most obvious case of poor character focus is between Elsa and Anna, the two sisters.  So Elsa has this power that’s potentially dangerous, fine.  The movie then cuts to a song to explain their years growing together/apart, but because of how it’s pieced together, with no real explanation of certain things (we’ll get to this), and it’s done within a scant minute or so, the viewer is left unconnected to the core issues of the film.  Their parents die with no real meaning, because the tragedy isn’t developed.  Other characters are merely there for their stock roles and aren’t given enough space to evolve.  Will there, oh will there be a cute, lovable, comedy-relief creature of some sort who’s so lovably stupid you just have to buy the stuffed toy after?  YEP.  Is it really explained WTF he’s doing there in the first place?  NOPE.  SHUT UP TOY GET IN MY ARMS NOW HERE IS ALL MY MONEY.  Let’s get to that next.

4. Sidekick bullshit.

Really, honestly, does there have to be a God damn sidekick character in every frikken Disney film?  Why?  Why do you keep doing this?  So Elsa and Anna made a snowman or two in their youth, thus the main song this stupid movie is known for, and later he’s wandering around because he’s magical now and whatever.  So?  Does he really have to be there?  Sure, they make him have a little importance later in the plot, but the fact that you could do that with someone else and remove him from the rest of the film with no difference other than a removal of trite comedy says a lot.  We don’t need to have something to laugh at all the time, just once, please, can’t you just tell a story for a story instead of littering it with stupid comedy?  Sometimes serious is the better option.

5. Poor plot development.

The Snow Queen was an awesome story, you can read the entire thing in the link posted earlier.  Frozen‘s big problem is lots of critical plot development is scrunched into a two-minute song, merely assumed, or comes and goes so it quickly it loses effect.  When the parents die, you really don’t care.  They barely say more than two sentences in the movie anyway, so when their ship goes down it means nothing because the sisters forget about it so easily.  Actually, they don’t, but it’s all condensed into a song and you lose that sense of reality.  Elsa’s power is another example.  So she has this great power to control ice that’s potentially dangerous.  Where did it come from?  Why is it just assumed?  What is it’s purpose in the greater schema of this fantasy world?  Why are we given no details as to what it actually means?  Who in the living Hell would actually fall in love with a prince they literally just met and who 100% of the audience already knows is going to not be the one chosen at the end?  If it’s that obvious to a five-year old (true story), perhaps the characters themselves are complete idiots, and that explains the rest of it.  Don’t worry, we’ll be getting to that bit if you think we don’t get it, keep reading.

6. Random “wait WTF” shit.

Frozen has a ton of things merely assumed.  It goes along with our last point, but here’s a perfect example of it, the rock trolls.  Okay, cool looking, trolls, rocks, kind of like Rock Lords but not awesome, we’ll go with that.  Wait, why are they here?  Who are they exactly?  Why do the parents go to them for help in the opening scenes?  What function do they have in this world?  They’re just tossed right in there like the balls they resemble and you’re expected to simply consume their presence.  Sorry but no.  Or how about this.  So Elsa decides to leave her kingdom because she fears her powers, okay, sure.  Well, wait no.  First off, if love is the key to “curing” her, wouldn’t she have figured that out earlier?  “NO,” you say in CAPS.  But children have pure love, so umm, wouldn’t she have, you know, FIGURED IT THE HELL OUT EARLIER?  And why did they wipe Anna’s memories of what happened?  What’s the point of that?  Why not just say to her, “listen, dear, your sister has ice powers that could potentially kill you, best to stay away when you can.”  Seems pretty legit to me, and we could have avoided another stupid song.  So she leaves all that, okay.  And she goes into the mountains and makes an ice palace!  Wait, and then what?  Is she going to make ice food?  Is she going to have ice parties with ice sculptures and do nothing the rest of her life?  Really, what in the Hell is she going to do now?  ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BECAUSE SHE’S IN THE GOD DAMN MOUNTAINS AND THERE’S SNOW EVERYWHERE.  Fairy tales suspend the majority of reality!  You can’t keep mixing it or the viewer questions the plot!

7. Those trolls.

Seriously, can we talk about the trolls again?  Thank you.  Why are they in this movie?  They’re just there!  They perform magic, great, there’s a leader, great, whatever, but why are they there?  Are there other creatures like them in the world?  What is their role among the greater fauna and flora?  Do they sit there rolled up in ball-form until someone comes to ask them questions about magic or to make it seem like Frozen has plot?  Toss us something so we don’t make another point in our list here about it.

8. God damn songs.

This has to be, seriously, the Disney film from their entire history with the most frikken songs ever.  A song is pulled out nearly every scene for no reason, trying to condense plot into short spaces, just for the Hell of it, to prove a “point,” whatever.  Why do we have to have all of these stupid songs?  Disney has proven in the past a few songs, or even no songs, can still make a successful film.  Why do they always feel the need to waste our time with these stupid songs?  And nothing’s worse than a song that tries to explain 12 years in 2 minutes.  Really, do you think we feel the characters and their conflicts are developed after that?  Really?  Why do you think we ranted about that above?

9. Love is WAY too easy.

Love, the driving force behind every plot and tragedy in history.  The driving force behind rebirth, it’s like, yeah you get it.  But really, let’s be objective here.  Anna falls in love with everything apparently.  As said above, you know from the start that the major female character, that being Anna, is going to go for the stupid mountain man.  They don’t even have to introduce him properly,  just showing him on the screen and his elk that acts like a dog is enough.  Why?  Because that kind of thing has been done to Hell by Disney.  But, see, they need to “develop” that.  How?  Well, of course, she instantly falls in love with this other guy, this prince.  Sigh.  Like as soon as she sees him practically.  First glance, sure, heard that one, but they barely talk to each other and then she wants to get married.  So they simply toss out the “guy you’ll eventually hate” without much reason for why anyone would want to like him at first.  And, sigh, during the course of the “adventure” Anna will instead fall for the mountain man idiot, because that’s what she’s supposed to do.  And I know what you might be thinking right now, so save it for the final point in this list, if you please, here we go.

 

10. NOT subversive.

And that’s the big thing.  Frozen has been hailed as “subversive” by many because it supposedly plays with the princess trope and “does something different with it,” or because it takes the typical concepts and “lays them bare” to make criticism out of them.  Really?  Well, in watching it we freaking expect everything that actually happens.  Hmm.  First question is then that if it’s soooo subversive then why do our female characters act exactly as we expect them to?  Why do the men appear exactly as they always have?  Why do all of the points above hint at everything in this movie being completely obvious or banal?  Everything about Frozen is, in fact, expected, and nothing subversive is ever expected.  Now, the second question is then does that make it subversive?  Because that’s what’s being argued elsewhere.  In displaying “how not to make a princess movie,” has “subversive” been accomplished, or is it simply someone analyzing it and laying that analysis on top of what is, in actuality, a princess movie?

If this were a subversive, self-aware film, then Disney would not be trying to make the entire film in the same way they always have.  Even if we take the “love at first sight” theme at face value as hidden criticism, the rest of the film is still blatantly obvious.  You know exactly who the true love will be, you know love will have a central role, you know the princesses will be pretty, wear nice clothing, you know there will be comedy relief, you know there will be humorous animals with above-normal intelligence, you know there will be songs, etc.  Because, one, it’s for children in essence, and two, it’s the same freaking thing they’ve always done.  Making Anna fall in love at first sight has been done in like almost every freaking Disney movie with a freaking princess in it.  And, might I add, Elsa is not set up to be a villain as someone suggested, she’s set up in the outcast role, duh, and that’s been done a million times too, why do you think Rudy was such an easy sell?  Where in the Hell did anyone get the idea that any of that was subversive?  Go buy the toys, go buy the plates, go buy the cakes, then have a princess party until you’re 40 if you think it’s something more than it is.  If subversion were the actual goal, then it wouldn’t be  a product and it wouldn’t have fooled a quadrillion people it was something good like To the Extreme.  Just because something sells, does not mean it’s something good.  True subversion is never appreciated for what it is until current opinions are no longer the norm, that’s how it’s always been.

 

In the end Frozen is poorly developed, outright boring at times, illogical, broken, full of inane songs, and so forth.  Face it, if you wanted to see a CGI version of Charlie, the Lonesome Cougar, then, well, thankfully we haven’t been cursed by anything like that yet.  There’s just nothing to be had here, get over it, stop reading into the stupid thing and finding meaning to justify why you wasted time and money.  We, thankfully, only lost the hour-or-so of playing time and a dollar twenty-eight.  Though we did get a good nap out of it, because that’s the best it can offer.

  1. Another one-dimensional element of the movie was the setting. The whole movie basically takes place in “a courtyard” and on “a mountain”, seemingly separated by a mile or two. It’s as if the creators said, “The viewer doesn’t really need to know anything else. Sure there are other lands in this world, like ‘That-One-Country’ where ‘Evil Prince What’s-His-Face’ came from, and the unexplained ‘Valley of the Trolls’, but you don’t need to know anything else. Ain’t nobody got time for that.” This movie does NOT deserve the amount of fame it has.

    • Stanley Stepanic

      GET EM LUFFY! DESTROY! That’s one issue I didn’t consider, but I’d say you’re definitely right about that. They added the snow mountain scenes, but really it’s all within the vicinity of the same dang place. Not sure if that’s a big complaint, though, because many Disney films stuck with the same area, but I will agree that with the suggestions of other places, they did nothing to develop them!

    • Frozen Needs to Die

      The last minute villain (Hans) was also unbelivable. With no build up, foreshadowing, or even enough movie time to be recognized as a true villain. He had less than five minutes of villainy before being defeated. But that is what last minute villains do – get defeated quickly because they need to end the movie, of coarse, causing the villain to seem silly and not very formidable.

  2. I actually liked the movie, mostly for the cool original design. I did not like the part where the kids where apart their whole lives and the prince was a bad guy and the one sister turned against her kingdom by covering the world with snow! I mean, I can see relationships that where sad in the movie, but over all, in the end its about true love with the sisters. Just like Hewie Luis and the news song “The Power of Love,” from Back to the Future, its all about caring for another.

    • Stanley Stepanic

      Jill no! Think of the children! Not sure how the design is original, it’s nearly the same as any Disney movie, just done on computers. You want original, go with Russian animation. Caring, sure, but didn’t they do that as children?

    • Frozen Needs to Die

      I don’t notice ANYTHING original about that movie, everything in it was done before at least once by Disney and multiple more times by other companies. The animations are good, but that only makes it a good movie if your deaf and you don’t know how to turn captions on. Not to mention the seventy something, and counting, plot errors if found or read/watch videos where other people point them out.

      And when children notice the massive amount of plot error and cut corners in a film, it no longer qualifies as a good movie.
      -No foreshadowing with evil prince Hans
      -Anna and Elsa have a very strain, almost flirty, relationship all throughout the movie, even at the ending
      -Anna and Kristof never bond or do anything remotely romantic until the last five minutes of the movie (you know it’s a bad movie when the main character bonds more with the villain than the actual love interest)
      – the entire plot revolves around Elsa and yet Anna, the younger princess with no character build up or personally, is the main character.

    • Frozen Needs to Die

      “Always remember that film is still primarily a narrative driven medium, and regardless of how good the songs and eye candy is, the story, songs, and spectacle must be unified.”

  3. Yeah, you are right about this movie
    It’s Worst Animated Movie Ever
    And surely, it was sucks

  4. Those are some really good reasons for the movie to suck. I really hate it as well, so I wrote an article half an year ago. You might find some good points there – http://dgeneralist.blogspot.com/2014/01/frozen-reasons-it-sucked.html

    I like that I’m not alone 😀

  5. Hey! I watched this movie just because everybody around me was saying “Frozen is Great!” So me and my girlfriend rented this movie and watched it together. The first 5 mins was fine, but once their parents died… THIS MOVIE TURNED INTO THE STUPIDEST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. My very first question was are there ONLY 2 princesses in that freaking castle? Second question, what the heck did Elsa eat if she never came out the room and no other people were in the castle? WTH? I am gonna stop here because this just drive me crazy! Btw, is the love between girls the new trend of Disney? You know what I mean if you watched Maleficent….

    • Stanley Stepanic

      I guess she ate snow, because apparently that’s what she did in her ice palace LUUUUULLLLLLLZ.

    • Frozen Needs to Die

      When I first watched this movie it felt empty.

      The second time I’d didnt like it, which brought up the question, “Am I missing something or am I just a lot smarter than everyone else?” Upon finding sites like these I realise it was the second one.

  6. Well first off all, Frozen was a great film! NP at all but, Frozen had a bit unanswered scenes but so what. You haters r kinda over reacting that it’s horrible saying shit like “worst movie ever” but Come on its not that bad as u say it is. Just think about other movies such as the ones that didn’t even make it through cinemas or at lease world wide, now movies like those are horrible.Also off all mean reasons why Frozen sucks, don’t pick on Let it go; It’s awesome and way better than nearly most songs that was ever created anyway what I’m saying is u haters r way over reacting

    Zwag out

    • Stanley Stepanic

      Zwagster, I’m not even sure in this mess of babble you said anything significant! B-Movies can be great, and are you telling me because a film receives worldwide distribution, THAT makes it good? Please, we all know Vanilla Ice went multi-platinum, but as much as we love the guy To the Extreme was about as good as a bag of popcorn without popcorn in it. We must reveal the truth to you, it will make you a power to be reckoned with. Join us.

    • Frozen Needs to Die

      Some people idolize stupid things like that movie. I don’t blame them for not looking at the storie, dialogue, or characters, but there needs to be a point where you realize what the movie is about before you trie to ague for it.

      Problems with frozen: this site does a terrible jod explaining all of the problems in, what I am calling, the worst disaster since hurricane Katrina.

      I am pressed for time so I can’t explain to you, but look up on YouTube “Frozen in 9 minutes” and frozen is the most over rated movie ever

    • Frozen Needs to Die

      There are so many articles and videos saying that Frozen is terrible and stuff, but none of them cover the same two errors.

      Frozen = Countless Flaws

    • Dude there are over 1,000 UNREALESEAD WORLD WIDE GODZILLA MOVIES.Heck even the original Godzilla movie was better than Frizen at least there was an actual plot

    • Zwag, you are so wrong. At the first time I watched it, I was fine with it. A month or two months later I realized how awful it really was, and I thought I was the only one that really hates frozen more than anything. All my friends are in love with the film and if there’s a movie night and were watching Frozen, I’ll run away screaming!And just so that you know, I love Disney. After I watched BH6, I was like “this movie (not frozen) is amazing!”. Just this past Thursday I went to Cinderella (2015)and now I’m really sad because that movie was incredibly amazing and I really really really really really really want to see it again:(!

    • Your grammar, punctuation, and spelling makes me wanna cry.

    • Child. The movie and songs were awful. I know it. Stanley knows it. You know it. We all know it. It was just awful. Let it Go was by far the worst.

  7. Thank god! I finally found my other half! I thought I was the only one who felt this way. The kids at my school wouldn’t stop singing those stupid songs! I wanted to kill them! Lol.

    • Stanley Stepanic

      Now you have the knowledge to destroy their foolery forever. Tell them the truth of the suck of Frozen.

  8. I didn’t like this movie. It was terrible. I am sure it more than satiated those with simple-minds, which is no wonder it became so popular. The Snow Queen was ruined and it is a shame because Disney could have done something stunning with the material and stepped outside of the box, but chose not to. I would have liked to see some of the dark elements of the tale come to life. Frozen was boring, one-dimensional, and filled with plot holes. Wake up people.

  9. Thank the universe there are others out there … was beginning to feel so alone & baffled that anyone could sit through this dribble.. everything about it was horrible from the whiney voices to the plastic dolls to the pathetically rendered landscape. There are so many beautiful creations and artists that deserve our true attention.

    • Did anyone realize that most of the time Disney makes girls (mostly princesses) main characters and like they don’t ever make a movie mainly a PRINCE! Like maybe a prince living in a ruined and destroyed universe and trying to get out to once he heard of the amazing stuff in our universe, something like that. COME ON, DISNEY! THINK OUT OF THE BOX!!!!!!!

  10. Michael Shilling

    have not seen the movie but from the previews and the song let it go being played constantly I lost interest in wanting to see the film. When Disney creates princess movies they are rarely innovative now like they were when lets say Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Beauty and The Beast came out. Most of these modern day movies lack a Disney feel to the classics. Princess and The frog a cartoon movie should be a example it had some good songs, a great villain, and a happy ending with the girl marrying into royalty something new. But, with Frozen even though i have not seen it I get a hunch that its too happy not that happy is a bad thing its just the lack of other emotions. Pocahontas was able to capture a lot of emotions not only due to the historical that something on those lines happened but it was a movie about a New Frontier and a man met a woman and got a little something out of this place. Same can be said for Little Mermaid a girl who wanted more and got a whole lot more than expected like coming from royalty in the ocean and marrying royalty on land and her barrier was she was once a mermaid.
    I just do not think this movie would be classified as a classic, the closest thing you can get to a classic nowadays is Toy Story, Cars, Tangled, and Planes. But I think too much cgi for Disney movies is a killer for me they need to switch it up.

  11. This is not a spam! All of u Frozen haters are major rètàrds! Seriously picking on a movie what millions of kids and families really love, have a heart. Also get a life, wasting ur miserable life’s saying shit bout Frozen. Also ur reasons sucks, all of them are just opinions and excuses to get noticed online and like u can make a better movie.

    • Stanley Stepanic Stanley Stepanic

      Have a heart? We’d rather have a brain around here hahahaha. If my reasons suck so bad, could you please provide a succinct and logical argument to prove why your assumptions are correct? Didn’t think so. YU JUST GOT REKT.

    • Frozen Needs to Die

      All of the children where I live are smart enough to see this movie for what it is, a disaster that only acheave its popularity because of a song.

      “Always remember that film is still primarily a narrative driven medium, and regardless of how good the songs and eye candy is, the story, songs, and spectacle must be unified.”

      -http://bokgil.wordpress.com/2014/01/22/why-i-think-frozen-is-an-overrated-film/

      The only reason this film is the number one most grossing film is because of inflation. Once you factor in inflation it only ranks at about one hundred or so, being beaten by the classics. Cough, lion king, cough.

    • Why are you even here? This post SPECIFICALLY said: “10 reasons why Forzin sucks and will always suck”. You are wasting your time. Saying that we are wasting ours and trying to get us into your little group. It won’t work on us. We have tastes, intelligence, and maybe even a life outside of pop CULTure.

    • people can say whatever they want. Nobody cares if millions of people love it, we are allowed to like and dislike whatever we want. And these are pretty valid reasons mind you. People like anything the media throws at them and are gullible.

  12. I just watched this movie at the recommendation of a friend and I can say that I will never listen to that friend again….we might not even be friends anymore. This article hit the nail on the head…is it society that has gotten dumber that we can watch this and call it gold. I think back to classics like the Lion King and notice this movie is clearly missing that classic antagonist (among other things mentioned in the article). When you saw Scar, you knew shit was going to get real. When you saw Ursula, you knew shit was going to get real. Who was there to hate in this movie? No one! Its like the tried to summon their inner M. Night, but came as close as he did with The Happening. A coma patient would wake up to shut off this garbage. A better developed movie would have been the snowman wanting to experience summer and then calling it a Disney Short. So absurd, so stupid….I blame Michael Eisner.

  13. Hey there, I just wanted to say that though I agree, your arguments sound like a free writing “top of your head” rant. But none the less, frozen is the sign of a coming age, one where movies, and media, lean more towards “fun” or being “catchy” and “new” rather than quality (ever heard the song “turn down for what!”?) none the less, my desire is that one day, we as people will be okay with being similar to eachother and acknowledge one day that there is nothing new under the sun. When our lives become less about numbing our way through life by means of heavy drinking parties, orgies, and this meaningless, stimulating art, then, mabey, what is beautiful will become popular again. But we must understand this stems from a deeper issue than “the stupid majority”

  14. Frozen Needs to Die

    This movie was good before Disney game out with Let It Go

    -They had a good script with good musical numbers and good, developed characters

    -they come out with let it go (at that time the lyrics were so vague they would have worked in any movie what so ever)

    -they throw original script on trash and create an new movie AROUND THE SONG
    – getting rid of many character and replacing them with pointless new ones (Anna, kristoph, Sven, Olaf)

  15. I could not possibly agree more. The plot was put together with matchsticks. Skips around all over the place.

    The one thing left out of this critique that is important was the music : a goddamn patchwork quilt.

    The songs skip themes and styles. It starts with Scandinavian/Russian-sounding chants (which was actually really cool, by the way), to something out of Annie (Do you want to build a snowman), to super high-drama broadway (the cold never bothered me anyway), to vaudeville #1 (Summer) and vaudeville #2 (troll song) and I have to stop there because just recounting all this is painful.

    The fact that this was accepted as being anything but complete drivel is hard for me to comprehend.

    Storytelling is supposed to be an art form. It has BEEN an amazing art form throughout the ages. Stories as far back as ancient greek civilization, things that happened thousands of years ago, are fantastic. You would think that we would build on this background.

    And what comes of all this rich history of western literature? After Moby Dick? After Pride and Prejudice? Greek myths? Hell, you could look at famous stories from anywhere you like…

    …and we come to “Frozen”.

    Frozen has NOTHING in common with any great past OR contemporary literature, great broadway musicals, great DISNEY animation, or anything with “great” adjectives at all.

    The only truly SUBVERSIVE thing this movie expresses is a complete disregard for storytelling, thematic flow, consistent style and all the rest of the things previously associated with creating a great work of art.

    It’s a steaming heap of dung.

    I am ashamed that Americans are responsible for making it. I am even MORE ashamed that the American public actually LIKED it.

  16. Okay, I see your point of this whole review, but why do you have to be so whiny about it? That’s not a real reason of writing a review. You have to stop acting like a dick and be mature.

  17. This is a well written article.

    When I first heard and/or or saw of Frozen – I’ve been putting off on seeing this movie because a lot box office hits are either overrated and horrible or really good; sometimes the latter.

    The first and last time I’ve seen Frozen with my 2 daughters – the beginning of the film was truly beautiful.

    The bond and closeness between both female leads that happens to be sisters is something that isn’t tapped into much in Disney major films at all; 98% of the Disney characters is an only child – adult or underage person alike. Two exceptions are Alice (In Wonderland) and her eldest sister giving an oral history lesson; Dash and Violet Parr of The Incredibles.

    Ana’s and Elsa’s parents did the worst possible thing imagined – confining Elsa in her room instead of explaining with reassurance to Elsa that it was an accident, but instead indirectly guilt tripping her at a very young age.

    Then outta nowhere the royal parents die (because no Disney story is complete without a tragic death/situations of royalty/non royalty characters).

    Of the reason of the sisters’ parents hasty action due to panic and who were more concerned what people of the kingdom thought – damages the close and loving bond between said siblings which hovers over Elsa for the rest of the movie.

    Elsa became a total bitch as she got older that single handedly destroyed (and bought back to life to) the only person left that loves her: Ana.

    For fucks sake what relative would send a mutant snowman after the one that gives a damn? A self-absorbed psychopath like Elsa.

    No matter what, Ana defended her sister to the death (literally might I add), and Elsa didn’t care as long as SHE HERSELF was happy. Ana is the naïve, yet selfless, and sweet underdog that didn’t want her sister to be alienated which practically got killed doing so.

    Again: self-absorbed psychopath named Elsa. Eventually Elsa reconciled with Ana although she took her younger sister’s life temporarily.

    Each point the author made is intelligently valid and something many others who found this movie more irritating than pleasurable that spoke about it.

    If murdering your own siblings/relatives is considered “being triumphant over being a cunt” is the message for kids, then I say screw this movie and the dipsh!ts who defend it. The true villian wasn’t Ana’s first douchebag fiancee – it was Elsa who I absolutely abhor for deliberately putting her sister in subsequent danger out of introverted selfishness.

    Yeah Frozen made a bunch of money, but it sucks on so many massive epic levels of fail.

  18. Frozen was meant for children. If it was too complex and detailed no three year old would understand. Also theres a limited time that a disney princess movie has to run because it’s for CHILDREN so that they don’t get bored. You can’t please everyone but it’s better to please the target audience than any random people with opinions and not valid arguments.

    • Dr. Stanley Stepanic Dr. Stanley Stepanic

      Great argument! But that would only make sense if only children watched it, unfortunately it is currently the biggest fad film for Disney, among adults. Please, feel free to elucidate on how my arguments are not valid, if you don’t mind, enlightened one!

  19. I don’t normally post comments, but I have some strong feelings about this movie (in fact I found this page by googling “Frozen sucks”)- especially after finally giving in to all the hype and recommendations from friends that told me I shouldn’t miss out in Frozen. Up until a few years ago I would always look forward to the latest Disney musical, but they just seem less and less appealing. My boyfriend and I finally decided to give Frozen a chance and I just wound up grateful that we didn’t pay to actually go to the theater to see it and just rented from home.
    I agree with the negative criticism of story, character, and plot. And I could even ignore them if the musical score had been on par with past Disney classics. What happened to scores like those from the brilliant Alan Menken? The beautiful, fun and clever (sometimes even heartbreaking) music and lyrics from the Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast?
    The only memorable ( mostly because it was force fed, blaring from speakers anywhere you might go in public or private- inescapable) song was “Let It Go” and even that was only adequate and given the most credibility in my mind by the very talented singer Idina Menzel who did all she could for it. The rest of the score and lyrics were like the rest of the movie- insultingly pitiful- without wit, or beauty, or charm. I felt cheated- not only for myself, but for children growing up and being taught that movies such as Frozen are the best we have to offer them- that just because they’re children they should accept drivle.
    I really didn’t mean to go on so much. But as I said, Frozen inspired in me some very strong feelings and definitely not the type that Disney was looking for. I just sincerely hope that Disney will do so much better, make something worthy of their audience young and old the next time around.

  20. One thing is certain, when I have kids and they reach the wonderful ages of 4-10, none of them will be seeing anything made by Disney that’s not a TRUE classic. My children will not be brainwashed by the NEW definition of a “Disney Princess”, I see ADULTS singing the horrendous songs from this movie and it makes me sick to know that their kids are being exposed to this drivel. I’m afraid that Pixar is also falling into the abyss…I’ve been thinking about linking this, hehe, “review” to Disney’s little feedback section, why? Rumors of a sequel, that’s right, a SEQUEL TO FROZEN! I’m too infuriated to keep typing, someone please back me up

  21. yeah frozen really sucks! when i saw
    this movie its very BORING!! i hate
    how elsa reacts in a young age!
    i dont like this movie!! i hate all
    the characters there! then they
    made it since THE LION KING!
    impossible!! Disney shouldnt done this!!
    its very ugly! seriously im one of the
    fans of LION KING and i like lion king
    so much than frozen!! i believe what
    others say, FROZEN REALLY SUCKS!!

    • if you don’t like it, why did you watch it then?

      • Stanley Stepanic Stanley Stepanic

        Just to make you cry and comment. Also, beyond this mere comment box flame war, it was so I could have every possible method of explaining to people who like it why it’s so awful. Can’t very well hate on a film without knowing why it deserves the hate, right?

        • i am so glad i ran into this site…your question why did you watch the movie, my answer, i skimmed it. Fast Forward was invented for just this type of fiasco. 5 minutes in, i am horrified, mind numbing senseless singing, poor parental decisions, and trolls? Fast forward, more mind numbing songs, the characters look older, where are the adults around here. Fast forward why are people listening to some jerk who is not even from the area, and seriously singing rock trolls…how do they even know the hero. Fast Forward–forget the end it made no sense either. No more than 20 min wasted on the whole tragedy,and i feel just as horrified. After picking up my jaw from the floor, I came to the conclusion aside from this being the Worst Disney movie ever, that it is readymade to become a Broadway musical as well as Disney Iceskating show. Please make it stop.

  22. A week after seeing frozen: This movie was mildly tolerable…

    Present day: Can the creators of this stupid movie just die now? Thanks.

    Also, I need to state that the original plot was much more sinister. I saw a mini-documentary showing the making of the movie, and elsa the intolerable was supposed to be the villain. She still is the villain, as she was a character in the movie. This movie was like every CoD game past MW1. A recycled plot but a new look.

    I’m a goddamn kid and I hate how this move is most likely going to be around for the next 5-10 YEARS. Frozen has found its way into education and grocery bags. And if anyone here is going to post one of those “have a heart” comments, then why did you come over to this webpage anyways? You are in the wrong place. Go along with your fellow cult members and try to summon Cthulhu. I don’t give a rat’s ass about what you do next.

    And if you add “BRN3D” to the end of your “have an organ that pumps blood” comment, then I should tell you that, A: Only the brain can contemplate emotion. The brain is responsible for everything we do., and B: when you say “BRN3D!”, you should know I’m expecting the core of a star, not bathwater.

  23. Best movie ever! Don’t you guys have a better use of your time? Haha losers. Can’t wait for the sequel

    • Is this supposed to be a retort? Do you have any actual commentary to provide as to what’s so special about this movie? Enjoy being an automaton for the rest of your life.

  24. The movie and its fans prevented me from even liking it a small percentage. Why did I pay to see this in theaters?
    The fans make seeing these characters in stores and anywhere else highly irritating. While you sing Let it go in a loud, annoying and stupid way do not hesitate to run.

    I will most likely self destruct.

  25. This Christmas some relatives wanted to watch Frozen again. Thus, I was forced to endure it again. For the life of me, I could not figure out why so many critics seemed to love this movie. Did they all have some type of personal attachment to the person who wrote the script? It is the most boring Disney movie I have ever had to sit through. Why do so many people seem to like this movie?

  26. Hi Mr. Stanley,
    I just want to say thank you soo much for writing this “review”! When I watched this movie I was completely underwhelmed without even having average expectations but couldn’t figure out exactly why. You’ve explained each point detrimental to the film perfectly. One thing I can’t get over is why people believe Elsa is a great ” feminist “and role model wen she is literally a reworked damsel in distress. Also let’s touch on the terrible song ” In the Summer “. The tempo was so slow, it felt like easy listening music even by children’s standards. I honestly believe even Disney knows this wasn’t a good quality movie, seeing as they have yet to add Anna to their prestigious princess lineup.

  27. I did not enjoy this cartoon. Disney always created great films for children. I thought this frozen movie was very empty no story line and it look like it was written in ten minutes at a tteaffic light. Please for the sake of the sane keep Frozen FROZEN in your Disnry freezer forever. I wish to never experience this kind of pain again.

  28. frozen sucks balls

  29. 10 reasons why everyone here who hates frozen is WRONG AND WILL ALWAYS BE WRONG.
    1. Of course it diverges from the plot! ITS A DISNEY MOVIE! IN THE ORINGAL SLEEPING BEAUTY PRINCE PHILIP FUCKING RAPED AURORA WHILE SHE WAS ASLEEP!
    2. When you ask someone who was in charge of making the movie, and he tells you they did it to make more merchandise then I will believe you.
    3. Do you know how many people thought Hans was the main love interest? EVERYONE!!!!!
    4. Olaf is the best guy ever!!! Always positive!!!
    5. Poor plot developement my ass.
    6. YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE!!!!
    7.Every disney movie has wtf random stuff. A TALKING TREE NAMED GRADMOTHER WILLOW
    8.I agree with you onthe trolls. They were kind of pointless.
    9. Anna was a young niave girl who caught the attention of a handsome prince who “loved” her as well. Almost every girl falls for guys like Hans. She hasn’t had attention in like 10 years of course she’s desperate!!!
    10. Really? Subversive? That’s what you’re going with?…

    • Stanley Stepanic Stanley Stepanic

      Another comment warrior who did not read carefully. You reveal your own banal existence with your comments. Merchandise is one of your arguments, which is exactly why movies like this shouldn’t be made. It’s about profit, not substance. Watch “Song of the Sea” to see real storytelling in animation. WTF random stuff means things which do not have an apparent purpose, not things which are strange. Strange is fine, animals talk in The Lion King, so who cares? But things which have no apparent purpose are irritating, like the trolls, which thankfully you agreed with. Subversive, yes, because that’s the main argument made by critics that defended this drivel like you have, though you went the flame route of swearing more quickly. At least you got the trolls were pointless, go from there and open your eyes a little further, you haven’t seen the sun in a long, long time.

  30. (Ran out of characters) Now I apologize with how rude I was. You are definitley entitled to your own opinion but please don’t post stuff like this. It’s really offensive to people like me and it made me really mad. You hate the movie? Great! It’s your opinion but please don’t be a hater and post it online. No one likes haters.

    • Stanley Stepanic Stanley Stepanic

      HAHAHAH so I’m allowed to not like something and explain it, but I CANNOT POST IT. You’re so ridiculous. Go back into the corner of your room and cry yourself to sleep as you cradle your Frozen comforter with Olaf doing a jig on it.

  31. Frozen is bad rehash of beauty and the beast using the snow queen story as disguise and adding in the useless characters primarily the trolls. They failed but fooled many people probably those whom haven’t watched beauty and the beast in forever if ever. They merged there classic as Beauty and The Beast was never a completed fairy tale prior to the movie with Hans Christian Anderson story a good one and made a mess.

  32. Apparently,you were bored and had free time,so you did this.More than half of your reasons are not good.Before I begin,I encountered this site and it looked interesting,I was curious so I checked it out.I’m a pretty easy influenced person,so if this doesn’t convince me,it’s a failure.

    1.You said it ruined the source content.So,how many people care?You also said you liked Tangled.If you think about it,it only resembles the story in a few ways.Rapunzel was locked in the tower kidnapped by a woman and some guy encounters it.That’s just about how similar it is.For the Snow Queen,Frozen also has only a few resemblances as well,Elsa has ice powers and someone has an ice shard in her heart.Basically,you’re being hypocritical.Besides,you can always buy a copy of the original story.As it being too real,you’re basically implying that all children should be not realistic and not question anything suspicious.

    2.If it’s not good,how can it sell its merchandise?Sound stupid if you ask…

    • Very bad not good. Is that your response? I merely said Tangled was better than this, not that it was the greatest film ever made, of course it’s an adaptation. The problem with Frozen, by comparison, is it does such a horrible job with its source material. Barely any of it remains, whereas, by partially your own admission, Tangled retains enough of the original that you understand the source. Frozen does not. So that’s not hypocritical.

      WOW IT SOLD THINGS! Boy, you’re right, that must mean it’s good! How could I be so wrong!? I guess that means Fifty Shades of Grey and Twilight are masterpieces of modern literature! Who cares about Les Miserables and all of those, ugh, big books with big words? Read my article in more depth and let’s see you come up with a meaningful argument, as many have tried, and try harder next time! Like anyone else you’re a click-bait reader, you skimmed, mainly looking at section headers, and barely had anything substantial to say.

      • Okay,other than the one I said,give me an example.I never read those books and just so you know,I read everything,including all the comments.And if it sold things,it means it’s bad?Is that point even important?You’re saying that I don’t like to read?Reading is my hobby!I just don’t read well-known books!And how the heck did you type so fast?!

        • I type fast because I’ve worked at editing and writing for years now. I didn’t say that things selling means they’re bad, no, but if you’re saying things being sold means something is good you’re entirely wrong on the same level. Vanilla Ice’s To the Extreme went multi-platinum, does that mean it’s a good album? If you think so you’re just another mass consumer like everyone else, keep eating their vomitous masses and buying the toys. So many examples exist in media history of things like this that are entirely forgotten in a few decades. Have you ever heard of The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm (1962)? Of course not, it’s crap, but when it was released it received one Oscar and three other nominations, including a cast of well-known actors and actresses, and its special effects led it to be lauded as a “great” film, but no one today would say such a thing because it’s so terrible. Truly great works of art are rarely realized in their own time for that fact. What examples do you want? You’ve submitted so many comments I’m not sure, on my end, which of mine you’re even referring to at this point.

          • I never heard of anything the things your referring about.I was never very specific.Just follow the sequence of your comments and look at mine.

          • If you never have, that would explain why your “arguments” are completely groundless.

  33. …me.There wasn’t enough space for me to state it all.So,I’ll continue it here.

    3.You know,a lot of people didn’t realise that at all.

    4.Say that to every movie that has a sidekick like that.

    5.You say there’s poor plot development.The 5 year old you mention is either a prodigy or has someone who talks about movies to it all the time.If you say that the characters are complete idiots,well,a lot of Disney characters are idiots.

    6.Different worlds have different laws of magic.Prehaps the trolls are witch doctors,druids,wise women/men or whatever in that world.The chief troll clearly said that Anna was hit in the head and can only be healed by erasing her memories.Judging Anna’s personality,she would have kept on pestering her sister to use magic.Love?Right,the only way they can figure out that is that they break the fourth wall and watch the other Disney movies.Okay,an entire kingdom knows you have magic and wants to hunt you down,she wasn’t thinking clearly so she…

    • Your points are your own ruination. If people can’t realize characters are wooden they need to learn more about proper development by actually spending the time to read things other than a tweet or two. So you agree Disney characters are idiots yet still consume their detritus? For shame. I guess that means they should all be idiots without good characterization? Just because it’s always been that way? You’re worse than a drone without a brain.

      Break the fourth wall? WOW WHERE DID YOU LEARN THAT TERM YOU MUST KNOW THINGS! The issue with the trolls is they’re inserted for “magic” but their purpose is never provided. They’re there so you think “wow fantasy is cool” when in fact, if you think for a second, their actual meaning is never elucidated, they’re simply there to be viewed and turned into dolls you can purchase so you can hug them as you cry yourself to sleep after reading this article. “Perhaps” is not how fantasy or even fairy tales work.

      And your comment on love is laughable. Love is inborn, have you ever watched children play before they’re taught how to view others? Love is natural to us as a species, that’s the point I was making, which was why that issue was so critical. Keep on chatting, I’ll keep on making you wish you didn’t. Also, please check your typing and arguments for errors.

      • I don’t have Tweeter.I was younger than ten when I watched those movies!Any chance they’ll change?You’re quite rude.I don’t like stuff toys.So,if the trolls weren’t there,who does the king and queen turn too?A fairy?A wizard?You have to admit,no one else have used trolls before in Disney movies.Or did they and I just didn’t watch the movie?To be honest,no.Oh,so you think you would figure that out without any knowledge that you’re in a movie?Would a sane person think that it might be plausible to the problem?Okay,a hippy might.

        • The “to be honest,no”is the reply to children play statement.It’s late and I need to go to sleep.I live in Malaysia.So,don’t think that I took a long time to reply to your replies.Yes,I do over think.

          • See, over-thinking leads you to a place like this, where your mind will soon expand with all of our greatness.

        • Some say rude, others say honest. Honesty appears rude to those who don’t like the truth. I don’t know who they should turn to, it was never explained! Don’t you get it? I mean, jeez, if they at least said a quick line like “well, I guess we should talk to the ancient trolls” you’d have some sense that they mean something. Instead, no, they just go there and whoop the trolls, after apparently sitting there for years, basically act like “wow, now we finally have something to do.” That’s not character development. WHY ARE THEY EVEN THERE? Wow no one used trolls before?!! That must mean it’s a good idea! Who cares? Trolls have existed in other films for decades now. Who cares if this is the first time Disney did it? They’re always late on the good stuff.

          • Yes,implying people who like this movie and sometimes outright saying they are is not rude.Not to mention,outright saying the production team’s three-year-effort to make this movie is for stock ideas.Indeed,it is not rude at all.I believe they did say something like that.The trolls are Kristoff’s adoptive family and the royal family’s(probably)personal healers.Again,they did say something like that.

          • No, they did not, nice try.

  34. ….might not have planned ahead.Besides,it’s been a while since she practiced,since the word is out.No point in keeping it in.Eating snow?She might have been too excited to think about food and water now she’s free.If you think that is not possible,well,it’s probably the same reason why princesses with animal friends can eat animals.And what’s wrong with being realistic?

    7.Read the first 2 sentences of the sixth reason.

    8.A lot of Disney movies have pointless songs sung at random moments.

    9.She had barely anyone to talk too,didn’t pay attention to the song?Of course,she would fall in love easily.All the Disney princesses do!

    10.It is subversive,falling in love with a villain and all that stuff is not subversive?Come on,what else do you want,what do you think would be subversive?

    • “Point” six was already dismembered. I’ll say it again, you assume what purpose the trolls have, it isn’t provided for you, which is not how a fairytale works. Realistic? You’ve entirely avoided everything I said in the whole article. Can you please actually sit down to read it thoroughly with a point-by-point explanation of how I’m wrong. By the way that means with evidence of some kind and arguments that go beyond the “well I like it so there” statements you’ve already made.

      You prove again and again your lack of reading. I say exactly what subversive should be in the last part of the article. Really, it’s kind of sad you’re even taking the time to reply because you’re something like a first-grader trying to explain why calculus is wrong when they haven’t learned multiplication yet. Please read, you’re really just making yourself look desperate at this point. Also, thanks for the page hits.

      • Yes,yes and your statements fall into”I hate it so there”category.Again,I did read.I was asking you what problems do you have with reality not why fairy tales should have reality in them!I did read.You were complaining about how it was not subversive and not giving an example.I forgot that one,I’ll give you that.But,are you sure it was used it in every single Disney princess movie with a princess movie in it?I don’t remember any.

        • You’re completely babbling now, I have no idea what you’re trying to say with some of these hastily-written statements. You say I complained about it not being subversive without giving an example, yet all of that part has examples. Don’t remember any Disney movie with the “love at first sight” theme in it? Are you serious? Have you not seen, umm, The Little Mermaid, Snow White, Aladdin, etc. etc. etc.? You’re completely reaching for a way to prove me wrong, and it’s getting more pathetic each time. Stop skimming, start reading, you might learn something.

          • Anna didn’t fall in love at first sight.She thought she did.And no,you didn’t give any examples.I’m going to end this once and for all(because I feel that I’m breaking my code of never revealing certain information regarding myself to people on the web.Yes,weird code.)To be honest,Frozen was not my favourite movie.Favourite Disney movie?Yes.Even so,the reason I started this debate is because you were unbelievably rude about it.Reason 2 was going a bit too far.The production tried their best to make this movie a success,they even went to Norway to film it!Stock ideas?I don’t think so,no one in their right mind would go to Norway to film it for stock ideas.Believe me,this ticked me off the most.I went to a lot of critique forums and personally,I thought they were amusing.But none of them ever went as far as criticising the production team.You think my arguments are groundless.Please,a lot people think the arguments of people who don’t agree with them are pathetic,I did think yours…

          • Uh huh. Just keep increasing my ad revenue in your attempt to prove something. And then you rely on this pathetic Internet response of “not revealing certain information” as though you were someone significant. If you were, you wouldn’t be wasting your time posting on a marginal site for fans of the underground.

          • …pathetic.And you keep ignoring some of my questions.You keep claiming that I didn’t read,what if you misunderstood some of my statements/questions?I’m also getting the feeling you weren’t paying attention to the movie because your some of your so-called plot holes didn’t exist in the movie.Lastly,you and your agreers kept implying or outright saying that people who like the movie are complete idiots.It deserves a second mention.So,does this mean that if a genius professor liked this movie,he or she is an idiot?If I hate some famous and much-loved movies(and I do)I’m smart?Want to continue complaining about the movie,then don’t drag the audience and production team into it.Or at least stop calling the audience stupid and the production team lazy and made the movie only for stock ideas.Oh,and you’re still a hypocrite.(Shock!No explanation?!You wouldn’t believe me anyway so why bother?)Hmm….I have a feeling that I know how you’re going to react to this.

          • The rest of what you say is still grounded in having not paid attention to any of my arguments. I already read all yours and that was the original issue. Seriously, why do you keep responding? Do you like me to make more money? Because that’s what you’re doing.

          • Please add a “were”before “pathetic” in my latest comment.

  35. I’ll have to take your word for it because as much as I have tried – 4 or 5 times – I simply cannot get past the first 20 minutes or so. Was both bored and bewildered in just that short time. WTF? Nonsensical plot points pop as often as in some weird animé cartoon (which I think are pretty much all weird. Howl’s Moving Castle anyone?). Note to Disney: Bring back the first Fantasia’s and/or Beauty and The Beast’s animators and writers if any are still around. If all else fails, call up Don Bluth. He can teach you a thing or two about a good story coupled with beautiful animation and music IMO. As for Frozen? Load every existing copy into a plane, fly it to the Artic Circle and drop it right next to the Blob… isolated there for all eternity, or at least until the snow melts.

    • See, Vicky, you bring up exactly a point I was making. Howl’s Moving Castle (which is based on a book), is the essence of a fairy tale, where reality is suspended as part of the enjoyment. But, sadly, the mass consumer is not a thinking being.

  36. Can someone explain to me why adults are discussing a Disney film and giving not-so-good reasons for not liking it?Don’t they have better things to do?

  37. No likes Frozen anymore

    **** all the Frozen characters

  38. His surname is not “Anderson” like Neo from the Matrix. It’s Hans Christian ANDERSEN. He’s a famous Danish novelist from the romanticism. But I agree completely, Frozen sucks ass and should just be buried underneath the sand like E.T. for Atari 2600. Disney movies haven’t been good since the 90’s (although Treasure Planet was pretty good and very underrated, and Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Little Chicken).

  39. And when we first saw beauty and the beast we had no clue what was going to go down with Gaston till the scene at farm house. Beauty and the beast is how you properly devlop characters and still pull rig out in viewers you know first time you saw it you didn’t know what was next but felt for characters every last one of them.I hope this replys to oerson I want it to and not just a comment. Personally have issues with few other movies in addition to Frozen. Frozen isn’t as bad as Pocahontas but it isn’t much better and other then few physical diffrences Elsa is Airel and Ana is Belle the big diffrence isxana saves her sister instead of beast man here.

  40. Thank you for writing this! I remember when the movie came out and it was hyped as “the best Disney animated film since The Lion King” so I had to see for myself, and when I finally watched it, I thought… “That’s it?” I felt nothing for the plot, the characters, the music, or animation. In fact, the longer it has been since I’ve watched it, the more I grow to hate it and can’t seem to convince people why it’s so terrible. I tried to like it, I tried to feel some sort of emotion, but the film left me feeling pretty empty and underwhelmed. I really hope you’re right – I hope that time will allow people to realize the truth about this movie. I’ll bookmark your site and keep visiting it when I feel a need to have my rage-y feelings about Frozen validated. I’m so glad I’m not alone!

    And yeah… the music was awful. While scores from The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Lion King, and others, evoke a sense of magic and nostalgia, I felt no magic with Frozen’s music. Sad.

    • Stanley Stepanic Stanley Stepanic

      You’d be surprised, maybe, how many people like you end up here with similar comments. I think Frozen is kind of like Fifty Shades of Grey. It just got popular and people assumed there was something good about. Now, by this point, Disney is draining it for all it’s worth.

  41. …you realize you’re ripping apart a children’s movie on a level that you expect one to rip apart a Broadway play. Lets talk about why the movie is great.

    1. Sorry that all you retards expected this to be the best piece of cinema since Cloud Atlas, but it’s a Disney movie, which follows a very fisting formula to cater to the Child audience by creating something simple enough for them to follow and comprehend while not annoying the living piss out of people.

    2. Bitching about Disney having an annoying sidekick is like bitching about Tyler Perry having the token dumb white girl. That annoying sidekick is more popular among kids than Elsa and Anna. Marketing wise. It was genius. The only snowman that is celebrated in summer.

    3. Are you seriously bitching about them not focusing on depression, loss, separation and anxiety in a children’s movie? What kind of sadistic fuck are you? I know I don’t want to have to grief counsel my child over fictional characters and death…

    • Stanley Stepanic Stanley Stepanic

      The sadness of modern media is made all the more apparent by its disease crippling your ability to think beyond constraints.

  42. So if I did like the movie. NOT LOVE, but merely tolerate it, would that make me a bad person.

  43. Pingback: Frozen (2013) | The Cool Kat's Reviews

  44. Just stumbled across your site after googling “Modern Disney sucks”, and I agree with every point you make and then some. Nearly everything they’ve released in the last couple of decades is crap. Unoriginal, recycled crap that they assume we’re going to force-feed our children so they become brainwashed consumerist fuckwits. Yes, there are exceptions but most of it pretty much follows the same lines as Frozen: homogenous alien-faced female characters with wooden and/or snide expressions, stereotypically dumb or cocky male leads, painful musical scores, obnoxious comedy relief (insert hyper-expressive ADHD animal with bad bronx accent here – was there one of these in Frozen? I can barely recall, it was such a pointless and vapid film that I pretty much retained none of it) and lackluster plots.

    • Yeah that’s why my family moved onto anime permanently. American cinema, at least the stuff you see in big theaters, is totally lifeless.
