Dome Pondering Movie Review: Frozen (2013)

What is it about? 

After not being able to control her powers, Elsa accidentally traps the kingdom in eternal winter. Her sister Anna, Kristoff, and a snowman named, Olaf, venture to find her and restore normalcy to the kingdom.

Who is in it?

Kristen Bell - Anna

Idina Menzel - Elsa

Jonathan Groff - Kristoff

Favorite Scene: 

I will admit, I'm not a fan of musicals and my characters breaking out into song and dance, but the song, "For the First Time in Forever" is pretty darn catchy. So, yes, I enjoyed that scene where the song was featured.

Favorite Quote: 

Anna: Are you all right?
Kristoff: Yeah. I have a thick skull.
Olaf: I don't have a skull. Or bones.

Review:

This is a movie you really have to let go off all things you've heard about Frozen. It can be really easy to get caught up in all of the hype that surrounds the film which could possibly ruin your viewing of it because of expectations. 

With that as a foreword, Frozen was a great film. Disney again hit a home run with this film as it provide a really simple plot, but one that  unique enough to really capture both adult and children audiences. And really, that's the measuring stick of all animated movies - does it appeal to everyone? Frozen does just that. After all, I still couldn't believe the slight drop of "foot size doesn't matter" by Anna in regards to mentioning her new fiance. 

And for those who aren't big musical fans like myself, as mentioned above, Frozen has it's moments of random song and dance, but the songs are so damn catchy. They really are. 

All in all, Frozen is a great movie, and quite possibly one of the best Disney films of all-time. Go see it. 

Grade: 3.75/5

3 Up 1. NY Times Investigative Series on Haiti - The history of Haiti is such a complex (and unfortunate) one. Really, it's a story that goes untold, specifically for the context of how the country is viewed. From being forced to pay operations to enslavers (yeah, you read that right), to so many other historical setbacks - including American interventions - the nation's history is so well laid out in this latest NY Times piece. I urge you to give it a read.  2. Equal Pay for US Women's Soccer Team - Kudos to US Soccer on coming around to giving the USWNT their due - equal pay for prize money from the World Cup. It's a start, and more importantly, it's a push forward for women's sports that do in fact push the needle in comparison, or more so, to their male counterparts.  3. Kate McKinnon - Random "UP" here, but I'm doing it anyway...A few SNL usuals are rumored to be walking away, including Kate McKinnon. The show obviously doesn't carry the

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/8/22

3 Up 1. Mother's Day - It's a day for mothers everywhere, and really, since becoming a dad, I've advocated that it should be an entire weekend. But ah well - Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there - past, present, and subbing in. And of course, Thank You!  2. NHL Playoffs - I've really gotten into hockey over the past two weeks, especially, the Rangers/Penguins series. Honestly, in my opinion, the Turner deal might just be the best thing the NHL has ever done. From the production to the in-studio crew, the product is immensely better - and easier to locate.  3. Pusha T - After over 20 years in the industry, rapper Pusha T finally landed a number 1 album with It's Almost Dry . Following a well-publicized battle with Drake, one in which he outed the mega-star for hiding his son (or you know, it was Drake just hiding the world from his son, yada yada), Pusha follows it up with a solid album, one that is a favorite of mine thus far in 2022. Kudos to Pusha.

3 Up 1. California Church Heroes - It's soooooooo weird that the top spot is a result of something so horrific as our ongoing domestic terrorism problem of mass shootings. Still, the courage shown by the five members who stopped the shooter deserves it. Those individuals tackled the shooter and tied him up with an electric cord, while wounded.  It's so tough to fathom that those possibilities are within the realm of your Sunday worship, within the sanctity of your church.  But such is America... 2. Olivia Rodrigo & Drake - Rodrigo continues to reap rewards on an excellent album in 2021 as she topped the Billboard Music Awards with seven awards. There was also Drake who I'm beginning to sense we won't really appreciate his body of work until he's near the end of his career. But yeah, Drake poured in a few more for the legacy debates and discussions.
