So, I saw Frozen yesterday. I think I’ll be among the few who aren’t all over it. I actually went to see it with a really bad opinion. Unfortunately, for me, every trailer and teaser kept convincing me more and more that this would be a horrible movie. But everyone who saw it loved it so much, I got curious.
So I saw it, and it was better than what I expected. I was especially pleasantly surprised by the characters personality. None was like I expected them to be (even Olaf, which made me face palm extremely hard the first time I saw the teaser). I didn’t think it was the greatest movie of all time, but it was nice.
My favourite scene was Elsa’s song. Here I must admit, everything about it was extremely beautiful, be it the music, the animation, or just the general setting. And Idina Menzel has such an incredible voice. I’ve been looping the song all day.
So this will be my contribution to the Frozen fandom~

One thing you are totally right though is that it had so much potential. It could have been so good, but there were to much bad decisions... The story should have concentrate on Elsa. Anyway, that was my little analysis after watching it twice. I'm not very forgiving here... I think I wouldn't mind that much if people weren't praising it so much, saying it's the best Disney movie in history :\
Also, I love how your artwork shows the calmer, more graceful side of Elsa.
And I loved The Wind Rises because not only was it visually stunning, but it had a great story line, if it had not been an animation I would have loved it because it's got such a beautifully bittersweet story about how war can twist a beautiful dream into the tools for killing and a story about the main character falling in love with a girl trying to fight a disease.
I've heard waaaay to much praise (and fanart) for the movie, and when it finally won an award, I had to watch it!
Now, don't get me wrong, it was still good! But I didn't get the wow factor as much as I thought it would.
I don't know, I feel like more could have happened with the story. It just seemed to happen, then it was over.
Nothing stood out that was too great or too bad for the movie to get stuck in my head. Just another Disney movie I guess?
Ooo, so that's how it got the award.... Now I feel guilty for not knowing!
And you don't have to feel guilty, ahaha. It was in an article that went around a lot after the oscars, but it's possible you just didn't see it, there's no problem with that
Cool drawing btw!
