Good; it's a fantastic movie.

/I've been on a Disney/Musical kick lately.

That movie is farking terrible. I wish it wasn't. I'd LIKE to be able to tell you that it is a great movie that will stand the test of time.

But it just isn't. it is acoloural bullshiat and will be forgotten by next year.

Good movie.  I wonder how many lesbians it will make.

You sound bitter.

The really weird part is that enough people went out to see it at the theaters this weekend in the US to get it into the top 10 of the box office, despite the fact that starting last week you could buy it for $20 at iTunes, Xbox Video, Amazon, and Vudu.

All the four-year-old girls in my daughter's daycare know all the words to "Let It Go," but it's a damn shame the "50-year-old male" demographic isn't happy.

"some countries" means Japan.

Japanese foreign movie releases are MONTHS off of everyone else's schedule. Even Myrmar gets their films before Tokyo thanks to ironclad protectionist laws.

Just because you don't like a movie doesn't make it terrible. You think it's terrible. Fine, you're entitled to think that. But for the millions of other people who thoroughly enjoyed it and/or think it's the best Disney princess movie in decades, it will not be forgotten.

I didn't realize a movie about beastality .... Beastality .... Reindeer farking could be so popular

They don't sell good popcorn at your house.

You don't have a football sized screen at your house.

You can't browse the mall after watching the movie at your house.

Normal people like going to theaters, be it movie, play, or otherwise.

If I understand correctly, it's a bit of a scam on those with no patience.  If you pay the $19.99 to buy the digital version now, it's NOT like a "down-payment" on the physical medium that becomes available on 3/18.  If you want that, you'd still have to pay full price on 3/18.

The reason it wasn't immediately recognizable as a troll is because there's absolutely nothing to differentiate it from the multitude of posters who share the same opinion.

Better and healthier are mutually exclusive there, Mr. Notastebuds.

Which, in the age of the internet, means you don't have a movie theater sized screen, because that shiat would be all over the ultranets as a LOLpic.

They still have malls in Japan, frogdamnit. Arcades, too. Good ones.

Gotta say, I laughed my ass off at Olaf the snowman.

"My snow against the burning sand..."

I lost it at that one. Sure, he was just comic relief, but it was GREAT comic relief.

You can't watch a movie in your underpants in a theater (well...most theaters).
You can't pause a movie to go to the bathroom in a theater.
You can't yell at the screen at a theater.
You get grossly overcharged for snacks in a theater.
Most theaters don't sell booze.

There are good and bad for both.

It kind of is, but if I had young daughters I'd probably be tempted to throw down $20 to make them all happy they could watch it again and again a few weeks early. Plus, the digital version can easily be put in an iPad for car trips and such. The picture quality, despite being 1080p isn't as good as Blu-Ray, but for something the kids may be watching in their room on a smaller TV the lower quality may not matter that much.

Granted the Blu-Ray will include a digital copy, so you'll get all the benefits of the digital version (assuming they don't cheap out with a SD quality digital copy like my BTTF Blu-Ray set did), but when it comes to kids' movies I could see the advantage of buying digitally so you don't have to worry about the disc getting scratched, lost, or broken.

My daughter had a birthday party at our house a few weeks ago.  11 girls ages 3-5 were in our living room singing and dancing "Let It Go" as if they had coordinated it over and over again...which they probably had.  I saw some girls at the indoor playground this week giving an impromptu performance, as well.

But I'm sure Disney is incredibly saddened that they couldn't appeal to some guy on Fark and are taking that into consideration as they roll around in their billions of dollars in profits off of Frozen's box office receipts and sold out merchandise.

I preordered the movie at the Disney Store.  They gave me a coupon for $10 off of a $10 purchase (or $20 off of $40) and a folder with large lithographs from the movie (which we'll be using to decorate my daughter's room when we repaint it in a couple of months), so it basically paid for itself for us.

I wasn't as impressed with it as I was hoping. I still think Tangled was a better flick by a long shot.

The biggest problem I had with Frozen *spoiler alert* was how the king and queen basically did the exact opposite of what the wise, old troll told them to do. He told her to learn to use her powers and not be afraid of them. And what do mom and pop do? They shut her away in her room and basically tell her to never use her powers again. And why does the "true loves hug" cure her sister at the end but not the first time she blasts her sister in the face when they're kids?

True, it is just really odd for a movie released at Thanksgiving and not only still be in theaters, but to be pulling in top ten level box office when you can buy the movie for the price of two tickets. That is amazing legs for a movie. Even Titanic didn't have to compete against its own home video release when it was still out in theaters in the summer of 1998.

Remember how, in Saving Private Ryan, the Pentagon just sent a memo to the HQ on the front and Ryan was ordered to ride back with some wounded in a routine troop transfer as soon as he hooked up with an element of the US Army that had a functioning radio?

Remember how, in Lord of the Rings, Gandalf threw Bilbo's ring in the fire and it got really hot because it wasn't the one ring as Isildur had thrown that into Mt. Doom eons ago during the first war of the ring?

Remember how, in the Big Lebowski, Donny just gave the Dude a new rug?

There is no real good answer. Parents could have been afraid of the ridicule and backlash of having their daughter growing up and using her powers. Obviously, people are biased against sorcery as it shows up later in the movie. Parents probably had no idea how to deal with it so they hoped having her hidden would let her learn by herself and they threw in their own misguided attempts to help. It's one of the more real life parts of the movie. The daughter has an issue and the parents, trying to be loving and caring, do what they think is best. Even if in the end it was the wrong way to go about it.

The hug doesn't cure her the first time because she got hit in the head not the heart. Made up movie rules means the heart requires a true love thing, the head was only fixed by the troll altering her memories.

They thought that she needed to 'control' her powers by learning not to use them.  They just went at it from the wrong way, the way that most people without any experience with it would have done.  It was obvious that they weren't ashamed of her, but they were afraid of what she could do.

They misinterpreted the old troll's instructions, taking it as "learn to use your powers so you won't be attacked by the fear of others", not "learn to use your powers rather than be afraid of them".

And as others pointed out, the hug didn't cure Anna, her willingness to sacrifice herself (even though she could have saved herself) was an act of true love that started thawing her in the moments before she was fully frozen - but the thawing had to start at the heart, just like the freezing did.

/Listening to "Let It Go" (Idina Menzel's version, not the abortion Lovato did) right now.  Nice timing, Pandora.

And why does the "true loves hug" cure her sister at the end but not the first time she blasts her sister in the face when they're kids?

There is no real good answer. Parents could have been afraid of the ridicule and backlash of having their daughter growing up and using her powers. Obviously, people are biased against sorcery as it shows up later in the movie. Parents probably had no idea how to deal with it so they hoped having her hidden would let her learn by herself and they threw in their own misguided attempts to help. It's one of the more real life parts of the movie. The daughter has an issue and the parents, trying to be loving and caring, do what they think is best. Even if in the end it was the wrong way to go about it.

The hug doesn't cure her the first time because she got hit in the head not the heart. Made up movie rules means the heart requires a true love thing, the head was only fixed by the troll altering her memories.

I think that's where I went wrong.

The 'hug' doesn't cure Anna at all...Anna's sacrifice was what cured Anna.  The hug had nothing to do with it at all.

True love must be mutual, after all.

Slow To Return: brandent: Slow To Return: Slow To Return: TheZorker: Pretty sure it's not out until 3/18.

Nope, it's available for streaming on all the sites he mentioned RIGHT NOW.

http://www.amazon.com/Frozen-HD-Kristen-Bell/dp/B00HV2KPNW/ref=sr_1_ 3? ie=UTF8&qid=1393797065&sr=8-3&keywords=Frozen

If I understand correctly, it's a bit of a scam on those with no patience.  If you pay the $19.99 to buy the digital version now, it's NOT like a "down-payment" on the physical medium that becomes available on 3/18.  If you want that, you'd still have to pay full price on 3/18.

If I understand correctly...

Why would i want physical media?  I have a 92 in screen and projector and can't tell the difference.

I've never ordered digital copies off of iTunes etc...  are they DRM-free?


No but I don't think it's necessary no be DRM Free.  You can download them into iTunes and they are on the iTunes cloud ready to be played from any Apple device.  iPad, iPod, iPhone, Apple TV.  We use the Apple TV which streams it from the cloud.  Well actually it isn't really streamed.  Works on windows devices too assuming you install iTunes.  DRM Free at that point is just trying to make a statement.

It is frustrating that Android gets shut out of the picture but on the flip side iTunes for movies is extraordinarily convenient.  We don't get cable.  We do HD over the air broadcast for network shows and then the Apple TV has apps on it for netflix, hulu, etc.  We use Netflix.  That gets you some movies but also the main benefit is it effectively becomes basic cable.  Then the iTunes serves for any movies I feel like renting (yes you can rent them) or for Disney type stuff we buy them.

TheZorker: bborchar: underwhere: ActionJoe: underwhere: I wasn't as impressed with it as I was hoping. I still think Tangled was a better flick by a long shot.

No, you can truly love someone without them loving you back.  Happens all the time in marriages.

doglover: Mad_Radhu: True, it is just really odd for a movie released at Thanksgiving and not only still be in theaters, but to be pulling in top ten level box office

A lot of movies would pull top 10 box office over the other movies out now. Casablanca or Star Wars, for example, and you can watch those for FREE online on youtube most of the time.


Those actually fade out pretty quickly. For example, the Wizard of Oz was re-released in IMAX 3D last year, and after an almost $10k per screen average the first weekend, it had faded to $650 per screen within three weeks. You'll get some hardcore fans coming out for the reissues of the classics, but unless it is something like the Star Wars Special Editions, they generally don't have the same legs as a new release. They usually have a big week or two then fizzle out.

The hug didn't cure Anna; Anna cured herself by saving her sister. THAT was the "act of true love". Which also clued Elsa in on how to control her powers.
