So I finally saw Disney's Frozen.
Damn that was a good flick.
Based on the trope/story of a beautiful woman who turns away from love only to get thawed by the same, it's got an interesting twist on standard Disney tropes. The magic-using character of Elsa is not the villain, for a change. She's really one of the two protagonists undergoing the standard fairy-tale self-journey thing. Her sister Anna, a naive, neglected character undergoes a more standard Disney-fare journey, though is less of the normal damsel-in-distress.
The hero doesn't suffer too much neglect in the story. His tale is certainly much more of a back-seat deal to the journey of Elsa and Anna, but I thought the writers did a good job with him.
The villain situation was was pretty well done. Nice twist.
The random toy-fodder "cutesy" characters weren't too annoying. And I liked some of the songs.
All said, it was a solid story.
