This has been sitting on the back of my mind for a while now, but I’m sure you all know what I am talking about just as soon as I mention Disney’s Frozen.
(and already I’m predicting I will lose followers just as soon as I mention the title on this blog, either way, you’re a petty idiot for doing so without reading the rest of the post)
I remember before the film came out, many people, including some of my friends were ready to tear it apart, but when it came out, nearly everyone loved it. And of course there are those who didn’t like it. Which is always fine as not every film appeals to us, hell, I don’t care for Mary Poppins and people don’t DARE criticize that film. But what amazes me is the amount of hate and extreme nitpicking that goes on towards the film in general. From how the characters are portrayed, to small animation bits, to what they claim are mocking disney tropes and yet Disney has done that MILLIONS of times before in the past. But what makes me scratch my head is about why is this film getting so much focus of criticism when other disney films don’t get nearly as much.
It can be numerous things really. On the one end, it IS a matter of opinion. Hell, even though I like the movie, I personally enjoyed Wreck-It-Ralph more. And I don’t hold anything against anyone who doesn’t like Frozen, it is flawed but still damn enjoyable like a lot of Disney masterpieces like The Lion King. But everytime I see some hate towards the film, its always the same damn points over and over.
Like this for example, people often complain on how a lot of old Disney tropes doesn’t send good messages for kids today, whenever Disney goes in a different route or stick to a formula but update it for a modern audience, they THEN say its not like Disney. A very facepalming moment. Hence my frustration. Which is why I’m strongly considering writing my next article about deconstructing the criticisms towards Frozen. And no its not gonna be all praise or bashing. But rather analyze why people are criticizing the certain aspects of Frozen, but also present how those said arguments are either flawed or taken WAY too much out of context, especially given today’s opinionated generation…and tumblr, BA ZING!! Cause I honestly think its high time I get my say in all this bull shit. Yes Frozen is flawed, yes it does get too much hype, but what film isn’t? You know how the opening song tells us to beware the frozen heart? Well my friends, I am going to be tackling an ice berg of frozen hearts! I may get a lot of flak and rage from frozen haters or those who strongly want to keep telling “I suck so much for defending frozen”, but if those people can take the time to cause flame wars, then I’m gonna take my time to deconstruct the problems of today’s internet culture EXTREMELY high standards!
