He stared as his boyfriend’s pale chest rose and fell. The light from his glow in the dark boxers shone through the covers, but it wasn’t enough to calm Dan’s racing heart.

omg tell me you loved frozen what did you think


Okay, I will admit, Disney did white wash this movie considering it’s origins, and it didn’t quite sit right with me that they would use what i’m ASSUMING to be indigenous songs in the opening and closing when the characters don’t reflect the indigenous peoples of that region. I am not the sort of person that is not going to admit that this is a fault. I also couldn’t help but think they were using the “take me where I need to go” trope over again with Anna and Kristoff in the beginning of the film since they already used it in Tangled, but i’ll also say it became less about that trope as the film went on.

But it was still an absolutely incredibly film. The animation was stellar (i’m SO TIRED of tumblr trying to nitpick until the literal end of fucking time on this movie, i’m TIRED OF IT), the music was incredible, and I was blown away by the characters.

This honestly to me is one of the funniest Disney movies ive seen because they GET characterization. Like, I KNOW people like Anna. I’M like Anna. I KNOW dudes like Kristoff. I know people who say and do things EXACTLY like those two, and not just random people, to me they have managed to capture the mannerisms and humor of actual people and I think that’s what blew me away the most about it. Tangled was great for that, but wow, Frozen. And of course there’s Elsa, who was absolutely fantastic, and who I think they really succeeded with in capturing an image of a girl told to grow up much too fast, who missed her carefree childhood, and who is letting lose as a woman.

I also enjoyed the fact that Anna was completely looking for love, but they actually pointed that out as a flaw. She falls for a man she’s barely met and that’s never seen as an okay thing, but at the same time, that doesn’t mean her character is useless. There are people who have an idealized version of love that they are constantly trying to find in this world, there are people LIKE her, and that doesn’t mean that they’re useless people! Of course, they do through the course of the movie have Kristoff and Anna fall in love, but I enjoy the stark contrast between the way they fell in love and the way she fell for Hans. With Hans it was that rush-into-it zero depth ridiculousness, with Kristoff is wasn’t there until it was pointed out, it was sacrifice, and it was deeper. I also like that they didn’t actually have their first kiss in the middle of all the action of the movie, it was an ending note, an afterthought, not a main plot point. 

Then of course there’s the fact that it was a sister’s love that saved Anna, not a true love’s “kiss” because I think that kept the theme of the movie together, which are these sisters. In most movies, the last scene you see is the main couple kissing and a happily ever after. In Frozen, it’s the sisters ice skating with the love interest in the shot, but not the focus. It was their happiness. The entire time, Anna was fixated on her sister, so much so that the INSANELY LOVE CRAZY sister didn’t even give Kristoff a second glance or mention Hans until she needed “true love” to save her life. 

And then let’s talk about Hans for a second, because wow, good on you Disney. You took this guy, who at the beginning seemed like a beautiful, wonderful knight in shining armor, kind, considerate and loving, and he turned out to be a shitty person. Because you know what? We need more villains like that. We need more examples that sometimes the people that you trust turn out to be bad people. Sometimes it’s the seemingly nice guys who turn out to have the bad intentions, and the seemingly bad guys (Elsa) who turn out to have the best. I really, really enjoyed the ambiguous nature of good and evil in this film.

Overall, I give the film as it stands in terms of character development, themes, plot and relations a solid 8/10, I fucking adored it.

And of course I told myself “no i’m not gonna cosplay Elsa” and here I am looking up fabrics for her coronation dress, whoops.
