'Frozen' makes it impossible
Cultural and retail phenomenon
Robert Thompson, director at the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture at Syracuse University, said family oriented Disney "can't go all HBO," but it does have "to respond to the culture that HBO represents, people responding to people who are highly flawed."
Little kids adorably talk sing them. Teens croon them pretending to be ironic but, secretly, thinking they're great. We middle age moms stay in our cars a little longer than necessary just to make the point that, yes, in fact, I do want to build a snowman.
A message that resonates
not to mention that overall, "Frozen's" story is complex, the supporting characters are well developed, the visuals are stunning and the songs, well, are just really good. "Let It Go" won an Oscar (as did the movie as a whole).
Pop culture heroes as a whole have gone dark and ambiguous during the past few years. Think Batman, Superman, Tony Soprano, "Mad Men's" Don Draper, Walter White of "Breaking Bad."
You really can't get away from this swirling "Frozen" pop culture storm.
In the car, in the mall, in the aisle at the grocery store, the songs from "Frozen" are everywhere.
In the end, Anna and Elsa save themselves, celebrating sisterly love as pure and kind and something to aspire to rather than having a traditional romantic relationship as the tent pole of their lives.
The movie has even usurped the meaning of common phrases. When I recently sought advice about a grudge I was holding, my friend told me to "let it go." My brain automatically cued the soaring soundtrack.
But what, exactly, makes Nike Presto New Release
But in "Frozen," Disney did produce a G rated tortured soul. Elsa's anthem, "Let It Go," "is really a song of rebellion," Thompson said. Basically she is saying that she is going to do what she Nike Air Presto Dark Purple
"Frozen" also has created a pop culture moment that came onto the landscape at its own pace. Released in November, it was kind of a sleeper, by the standards set by other Disney mega hits, such as "Toy Story" in 1995.
Other than that, "Frozen" turns a lot of standard fairy tale fare on its end. The prince isn't exactly what he seems. The girls, in essence, rescue themselves. And, for Disney, there is a bit of a dark turn.
For the unaware here is the shortest possible recap:
She is not Sleeping Beauty in repose waiting for True Love's Kiss. She doesn't have a love interest at all.
Anna is also flawed. She is gawky, clumsy, impulsive and, in one unusual Disney scene, she wakes up with serious bed head. It seems that she falls in love with a prince at first sight, but things don't end with a blessed union. In fact, others think she's crazy when she wants to marry him after one day.
2. When it comes to Disney's "Frozen," I tend to be a loud Nike Air Presto Zipper and enthusiastic singer of songs from the movie musical and I didn't want anyone to be startled out of their inner tube.
Few others showed such restraint. Kid after kid floated by singing along, one improvising a key line of the song to be: "The pool never bothered me anyway." Their parents sang right along, too.
this movie arguably the movie of the past year, maybe of the decade? What is it about this 102 minute cartoon that has raked in more than $1.2 billion at box offices worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo, making it the fifth biggest movie ever?

"You are not going to have a Disney princess who is a meth addict," he said.
Later came the "Frozen" sing along version in theaters. By April, there were reports across the country about a shortage of "Frozen" merchandise as parents apparently scrambled unsuccessfully to fill Easter baskets. For about three weeks, Disney announced it essentially would ration "Frozen" toys.
In another bit of a Disney twist, the visual punctuation on Elsa's emancipation is an animated quick change that results in the previously prim princess strutting with enough swagger and previously unseen womanly curves to make a teen boy involuntarily utter, "Well, dang,"
In a way, Thompson said, "Frozen" is "about the Disney princess who doesn't buy into the ethos of the Disney princess."
wants, and there's nothing anyone can do to stop her.
That message resonates with kids, teens, adults and Thompson's college students, he said.
It wasn't until January that "Frozen" and its soundtrack album hit big. Then it became only the fourth soundtrack for an animated film to take the No. 1 spot since 1956, according to Billboard.
"Frozen" is the tale of sisters Elsa and Anna, princesses of the fictional kingdom of Arendelle. Elsa (voiced by Broadway star Menzel), the elder, was born with the power to freeze stuff; it is a blessing and a curse. In standard Disney protocol, their parents die. When it's time for Elsa to be crowned queen, she gets upset and accidentally causes their Scandinavian ish country to be plunged into an eternal winter. She flees to the mountains, and Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell) goes looking for her with an entourage that includes an ice salesman, a snowman and a moose.
