  1. I could not stop laughing for that entire "Under The Sea" part.

    Someone should make a 10 hour version of it.

    congratulations yourmoviesucksguy (can't remember your name) that shower scene shows you have more artistic integrity than almost any actor with contractual no nudity clauses

  5. I personally really liked this film but I can understand where you're coming from. The plot is a little contrived at times (no explanation is given for why Anna can't leave the castle as a child) and Olaf wasn't quite to my taste, although I was relieved when he wasn't as obnoxious as the trailers implied (I think the darker humour of his song may have been what stopped me from resenting his presence as I might have done otherwise). I don't have the experience with either Disney movies or music that you do either, so I don't have any complaints regarding the tunes and I liked the songs more for the lyrics and singing anyway.


    My favourite part of the film is really the characters, particularly Elsa, who is one of the best characters I've seen in films in the last few years (alongside Adele from Blue is the Warmest Colour), who was in my opinion extremely well-developed and easy to empathise with. While I thought that Anna and Kristoff had a lot of chemistry I didn't think it was all that romantic so I felt their romance wasn't entirely necessary, although Elsa not ending up with anyone prevented me from having the same problem you did. To be honest I thought Kristoff had better romantic chemistry with Sven, which would have been a very different movie.


    I've heard some people say that this film may end up being what Toy Story was to my generation, given that it will certainly end up as the fifth highest-grossing movie ever (still number one at the Japanese box-office after nine weeks) and I think you could do a hell of a lot worse.

  7. Thank you for pointing out the unoriginal mediocrity of Let it Go.


    Also this film was leagues behind Tangled.

    Funnily enough I fully agree with what you've said. Had similar thoughts when watching it. Hugely excluding the background info about "Let it go" but now thanks to you I know what was bugging me about the song.
    Cheers

  10. Pet peeve of mine - the Y2K was NOT just baseless rabblebabble. There is a legitimate reason that the switchover to 2000 from 1999 would cause a problem - and in fact, in did, just no where near as bad as some people thought it would be.

  11. Listening to this made me think of Batman Mask of the Phantasm, it is what i think is the apex of a children's movie that doesn't pander to children.

  12. Adam's shower scene, though.

  14. Love at first sight is a myth!

    Love over the weekend, however, is a-okay!

  15. One Winged Angel, amazing song.

  16. Nope, you are wrong.

  17. What really throws me off is how she "accidentally" uses her power to ill effect in some scenes but in most she seems to have complete grasp of how to use them.

  18. How? I'm pretty sure I'm right. Look at this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2000_problem#On_1_January_2000



    A list of small problems that occurred on Jan 1st due to the Y2K problem. The first picture at the top of the article is a French sign that displays the date "3 January 1900" because it rolled back to the start.


    Obviously it was no where near the machine apocalypse some people thought would happen, but it was a problem worth thinking about and that, in many cases, needed fixing.

  19. I agree with your review. Came out of that movie thinking "It was ok. There was way too much fucking singing though." Like that scene where they have a song-fight made me want to stab things in my ears.

  20. I did Y2K testing, and I saw systems crash, error out, or freeze all through 1999. We spent almost a solid year watching stuff fail and get fixed, and then tested again.
