1.Did you like it?
Yes, I loved it!
2. Why/Why not?
When I was a kid I watched our VHS copy of Aladdin so many times, the tape wore out. So I was excited to see that Frozen is something of a return to form for Disney, bringing back all the great the memories of their animated movies of the 90s. The animation is all CG these days of course, but somehow that classic Disney look and feel is still there. The songs are catchy, the characters are charming and their animal (and snowman) sidekicks are adorable. But then again, something’s different too – it is the 21st Century after all, and Disney has moved with the times. The themes and values have shifted. Princess Anna’s story turns the traditional love-at-first-sight romance on its head. And as Elsa the Snow Queen struggles with her magical powers, we get a more nuanced view of the struggle between good and evil, right and wrong.
3. “You would enjoy this movie if… “
You love your Disney Princesses, but wish that Ariel had been given the chance to find her own place in the world above before going and marrying her prince.
4. “This movie made me think…”
I’m looking forward to seeing what comes next.
5. Stars out of five?
5 out of 5 – brilliant!
