(Deadline)   Frozen and Catching Fire are neck and neck in the box office race, well ahead of their closest competition, Thor: The Dark World (which just passed the $600 million mark). Newcomer Out of the Furnace should have gone straight to video, though   ( divider line

I was frozen but then I found myself catching fire as I came out of the furnace.

Corn_Fed: Shadowknight: Was pleasantly surprised to see that they didn't overdo the talking snowman thing.  I really thought he was going to be the quirky star, but he really only popped in for the occasional comic relief and got out of frame quickly enough to not mess up the story too much.

Why do people ALWAYS assume the "annoying sidekick" character will ruin the movie?  This seems to be a constant, never-changing trope every time an animated movie is about to be released. Seriously, I hear this every time a Pixar, Disney, or Dreamworks movie comes out. And then people are always "surprised" to discover that it wasn't true.

I realize it's mostly because the advertising/trailers of animated movies always tend to heavily emphasize the comic sidekick character, leading people to think the movie itself will over-use them. I guess I'm just surprised that the general public hasn't gotten hip to that misdirection yet.

Because most of us grew up during the era of cartoon sidekicks ruining shows/movies.  Fantastic Four cartoon had Herbie the robot, Superfriends had Wendy/Marvin/Wonder Twins, He-Man had Orko, Thundercats had Snarf, freakin' Jar-Jar Binks...need I go on?  Scene-stealing, useless sidekicks were the norm for decades.  I think only since Pixar proved you didn't need them did they finally stop showing up everywhere.

I saw "Frozen" last night. Far, far better than I was expecting.
