You know what I’m so done with this. We can all agree that Moana kicked ass but can we quite acting like Frozen is the root of all evil?
Y’all keep acting like Frozen is the worst movie Disney’s ever made but, as someone whose childhood contained releases such as Chicken Little, Home on the Range, and The Wild, I can tell you that it’s anything but. Frozen is great:
It gives us the most relatable portrayal of a sisterly relationship in a disney movie yes I also love Lilo and Nani but their age difference and care situation means Anna and Elsa are more relatable to most families
It has an incredible soundtrack with amazing broadway voice talent (again, my favourite soundtrack from when I was a child is probably Lilo and Stich. And it only has 2 original songs.)
Elsa is a great role model for kids, teaching them to accept themselves and confide in others when they’re having difficulties. She teaches kids that it’s okay not to be strong all the time and to open up to those who love you
Anna is also a fantastic heroine. She’s much less refined than previous princesses and gives a new meaning to ‘disney princess’. She’s fierce and determined and passionate, all things we should encourage in young girls
The story line is also compelling. I don’t care what you guys say when everyone first came out of seeing Frozen back in 2013 everyone was shitting themselves about the twist at the end
While the character designs could have been improved on, there are still some moments of beautiful animation (Elsa building her castle in let it go in particular)
So yes, Frozen is severely lacking in diversity, and yes there are comedic characters that most people over the age of 7 could do without, but at the end of the day Frozen was a vast improvement on the movies immediately preceding it. Again, looking at the 2000s, there are many disney movies that wouldn’t even have passed the Bechdel test.
Frozen was a stepping stone; incredibly white washed but progressing disney in terms of representation of women and returning to its high standard of animation. Moana and Zootopia have built on Frozen by adding a much more diverse cast and tackling more complex issues, but Frozen is loved by children all over the world and I for one am glad that a movie with such strong female characters is available for young kids to watch and admire
Te Fiti was my enemy. But, it turns out, Te Fiti is also her own worst enemy. And the enemy of my enemy is my friend. So, Te Fiti is actually my friend….. But, because she’s her own worst enemy, the enemy of my friend is my enemy. So, actually, Te Fiti is my enemy….. But…
“A lot of people may call Cars Pixar’s ‘worst’ movie, but I hold the
movies close to me (yes, even Cars 2). I think the reason why is because
my father, who died 4 years after Cars came out, was a NASCAR fan and I
guess the Cars movies reminds me of his love for NASCAR in a way.”
cause i dont even want to imagine what will happen when we elect someone with no political background. If you are still thinking 3rd party. remember that this is not the right time to protest the 2 party system. a day before the election is the worst timing, we can protest the 2 party system after the election. Your vote is a vote that can go to Hilary, if you’re vote isn’t going to Hilary it’s helping Trump. That’s the simple facts and logic. you are separating the young vote and aiding to Trumps win. i dont care if you “want to vote with your heart”. this isnt a disney movie, this is real life and sometimes you dont get the perfect choice but you have to choose what is smart. Hilary is the smart choice.
“I’m going to be totally honest: I don’t think Frozen is the worst
animated movie ever. However, with that being said, I still don’t think
it’s good. But that doesn’t mean I don’t think people shouldn’t like it.
My major issue is that some Frozen fans won’t let people have their
opinions on this movie and think it’s just ‘popular’ to hate Frozen.
This movie was successful and people consider it to be the next Lion
King so why are they surprised some people have different opinions on
i want the pastel/punk trope but their personalities aren’t different like Dan is just a pastel memelord asshole who looks pretty but is the Worst and Phil is the sweetest and most awkward punk you’ll ever meet that pets dogs and cries during Disney movies
okay listen the mighty ducks are technically children’s movies and they’re disney movies from the 90s but they’re so progressive and important and you should show them to the children in your life and watch them yourself
the main child character is raised by his mother and doesn’t trust male authority figures and feels most comfortable around women and it’s completely normalized!!! he’s the worst player on the team at the beginning of the movies and everyone makes fun of him and he’s made team captain purely for the quality of his character.
male characters who are allowed to cry despite being in a very hyper masculine environment
their enemies in all three movies are privileged rich white boys and they always defeat them
the ducks (except for one) all come from lower middle class backgrounds and it’s hinted that most of them don’t have very loving or supportive parents
C H A R A C T E R D E V E L O P M E N T
connie moreau “miss independent i can take care of myself i’ll fight anything i don’t give a fuck” who loves guy germaine “i just love being on the team :) peace love and hockey :) very zen”
female characters who face disgusting sexism from opposing teams and always seem to have to prove themselves more then their less talented male teammates too. there’s even lowkey sexual harassment in the third one :/ also the ladies support each other!!!!!!!!!!!
rich white male coach who is always the one to fuck up and the kids are always shown to be in the right
SO MUCH DIVERSITY
adam banks their rich seemingly fuck boy enemy who joins their team and fights against sexism and wants equal treatment for all of his team mates :)
the high school they go to has the team name the warriors and there’s literally a petition in the movie talking about how offensive and gross it is and to get rid of it
I wish the “Dark Age” of Disney got talked about more in a positive way. Most people view it as some of Disney’s worst, but it’s not. I personally like The Black Cauldron.The Great Mouse Detective is one of my favorite movies of all-time and more people deserve to know about it. Oliver and Company I though was also very good and it had some awesome backgrounds. And Billy Joel. Seriously, it doesn’t get better than that. Basically all underrated Disney movies (etc The Aristocats, Treasure Planet, Atlantis, etc) need to be talked about a whole lot more.
Almost everything I see about the new live action Beauty and the Beast is people complaining that Emma Watson isn’t a good singer, that she’s wrong for the part, etc. but I don’t care. It could be the worst movie ever with a god awful soundtrack and all the cursed china in Beast’s castle could be magical singing dildos and I would still love it, because it combines my two true loves- Disney and Emma Watson
“The Cars movies doesn’t deserve the bad rap it gets online. Sure it’s Pixars weakest franchise and does raise up a huge amount of questions. But does that make it bad? No. Are they the worst movies of all time? Definitely No! (Yes even Cars 2 isn’t that bad). Also, I’m looking forward to Cars 3.”
