    I hear you speak of the girls adventures but not about ManChild. How old is he now?

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    OMG! I feel so old. Shows how long I've been around here. I still think of him as a toddler/preschooler. The baby.
    Dear Lord.

    Yep, that is the boys role whether he is the older or younger sibling.

    Spoiler Question:





    So for those who have seen....Opening scene. The gentleman cutting and carrying ice and little boy and what I thought was a dog initially. Is that the two/pair later in the movie all grown up? I wish I could have rewound at theater.

    "Frozen's 5th weekend was the 3rd highest of all times behind Avatar and Titanic.
    Frozen's 6th weekend will be the 2nd highest of all times behind Avatar.

    If the estimates hold it will finish 2nd to The Hobbit this weekend. However, unlike the Hobbit, it has no IMAX and very few 3D screens and a much greater number of cheaper child tickets."

    The soundtrack for Frozen was selected as one of iTunes Best Albums of 2013!


    After finally seeing Frozen I really liked how the songs fit into the movie so well.

    Part of the problem may be that Disney seems to be pushing soundtracks performed by the stars of the movie(s). I'm not sure how well Kristen Bell or Idina Menzel can sing. I know that stars have sung on very iconic Disney tracks before but it's not always a forgone conclusion that every actor can also carry a tune.

    I'll reserve judgement after seeing the film.
    Idina Menzel is Broadway royalty, she originated roles in RENT and Wicked. She has a ton of Tony awards, the girl's got some pipes. Kristen Bell studied musical theater and was on Broadway before breaking out in comedy.

    I think its cool that Disney is going back to having more Broadway singers, Mermaid, Aladdin, and Beauty & Beast all has Broadway stars as the voice (or at least the singing voices) of the lead roles.

    I loved Frozen, I've been listening to the soundtrack non-stop from before even seeing the movie. The only I skip is the Troll song, "Fixer Upper," everything else is great. It has the feeling of a classic Disney film, but its not stale but at the same time it doesn't try too hard to be trendy. I know everyone feels differently, but I fell in love with it. I've been singing "Let it Go" in my car for weeks (but I'm still perfecting my hand motions to go along with it, like a giant nerd)

    Saw this on DVD over the weekend. What a waste of time. Fortunately, it was only a waste of $2. If I had paid full price at the theaters, I probably would have cried having spent so much on this god-awful blech.

    I saw Frozen over the weekend. It was good. Much better than Princess and the Frog. Songs were good but there seemed to be too many of them.
