CIRCLES: IS DISNEY’S FROZEN THE CUTEST MOVIE EVER OR THE ADORABLEST MOVIE EVER?

 

OMG, such cuteness. Wow.

You guys. It’s a movie with a sassy singing snowman, a puppy-ish reindeer thing, two gorgeous (sigh) men and two independently feministic royals. What’s not to love?

Oh, it’s got trolls, too. Chya, trolls. And who isn’t turned on by a guy sharing saliva-covered carrots with a reindeer? Yummy.

Let’s be honest here. It’s pretty much filled with the greatest animated facial expressions ever, and even the wickedly talented Adele Dazeem is in it.

Add in a bunch of voices that no one has ever heard of because they’re actually talented actors and actresses that can sing like none other, and bam! You’ve got an Academy Award-winning flick.

And hey, Rapunzel and Flynn from Tangled are in it too, making a charming cameo appearance that only Disney could pull off (because, well, it’s all the same animation studio).

And while Elsa and Anna and Hans and Kristoff are important to the movie, it’s the stereotypical Norwegian, “Yoohoo! Big summa blowout!” guy, who steals the show.

Now and here’s another wonderful thing: Elsa seriously makes her own dress out of ice. Mind blown. I tell you what, paying to see Frozen three times in theaters was the best investment ever, and so was paying 25 bucks to buy the Blu-Ray combo pack of happiness.

Now I just need my own pet reindeer, magic snow powers and a flowing blonde, braided mane of hair, and I’ll be happy. I just can’t get enough of Frozen. I can’t let it go.

Olaf and Sven: totes adorbs

Let’s just take out Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Hans, the songs and the apparent ice fetish and just have Frozen be all about Sven the reindeer and Olaf the snowman.

Oh and the trolls. We need the trolls.

Between Olaf’s killer one-liners (“I don’t have a skull. Or bones.”) and Sven’s dog-like qualities that make us all wish we had a pet reindeer, Frozen could be a whole different story. But, because we have to have people, we mesh them in.

Not only do we get the best facial expressions I’ve ever seen in a movie, but we get a frozen solid (see what I did there?) plotline that begs to be awarded by the Academy. Oh wait.

And let’s be honest. We all know “Let it Go,” whether it’s the first three words or the entire song. They are all kickass.

And may I point out that the writers put the word “feistypants” into the script? Genius. And yes, while Olaf and Sven steal the show with their innate adorableness, the humans do okay for themselves.

And how wonderful are Kristoff and Anna? Swoon. And who doesn’t want to punch Prince Hans when he *spoiler alert* almost-but-doesn’t-quite kiss Anna as she lies on the couch dying? Sneaky bastard. Well played, Disney, well played.

Frozen is all around the best Disney movie since the beginning of Disney movies. Good luck topping this, Mickey.
