Better late than never; A+ on Cinemascore, a staggering $15m Wednesday opening and may be the biggest animated opening movie in November. Major Oscar contender in animated film and original song.November 29, 2013 at 7:54 am #119666
This was a great movie. Possibly could break into best picture too.November 29, 2013 at 7:38 pm #119667
This was terrific! One of my favorite animated films in a long time. I think it can and will win Animated Feature and Original Song (for “Let It Go”) and maybe score an additional nominee in the latter category. The voice cast was phenomenal, especially Josh Gad who was hilarious as usual in a role that seemed perfectly crafted for his sense of humor and voice. If not for Jared Leto he would probably be my pick for Best Supporting Actor (so far). I do think the film has an outside shot at Best Picture and whichever screenplay category it ends up competing it.
Theater was a good 70% full, mostly families, and the entire crowd loved it.

I watched the movie in spanish… cause we dont have the chance in my town of original version… i like it… but the funny thing is that in mexico and in spain, “let it go” is translate in two different ways…
The songs were quite awful…. except the supreme “let it go” but it might be cause of the translation… it is too similar than Brave
Instrumental Score was quite good… and the Set Decoration was great.
The twist was quite predictable
For the record, the spanish ambassador is in the spanish translation the french ambassador…
and as many other movies, you have to wait till end of the end credits for a small scene. (i had to quarrell with people coming in for the next performance… and father told me that i should go cause that was his place, and i simply told him, the movie has not ended yet)November 30, 2013 at 8:52 am #119669

Yes.November 30, 2013 at 9:33 am #119670
Let it go -> “Sueltalo” (Spanish Version) = “Let it Free” = “Loose it”
-> “Libre soy” (Mexican Version) = “I am Free”
More and less, the rest is the same but the main chorus the most important part is completely different:

Saw it today in front of a nearly 80% packed theater. My first Disney movie theater experience. May as well have been one that hit it out of the park. A lock for Animated Film, and hopeful lead pipe cinch Oscar noms in adapted screenplay, song (3?), and others. A career high point for Kristen Bell. They haven’t invented the integer that high about the levels of ass she kicks here. Some may know where I’m going with this. What exactly is AMPAS’ position on animated films and possible acting nominations? Did NOT see that curveball near the end coming, and there was an audible gasp from the crowd when it dropped.

^New rules state only 2 at most can make it from one film.
No voice actors have ever gotten in for SAG, Oscar, or Globes (and for now, with the Globes, they never will). I highly doubt Bell breaks that barrier. Sorry.November 30, 2013 at 1:38 pm #119673

Yep, I know 🙂 But she should be profoundly proud of that performance. And from her OWN FANS, there were comments on her twitter feed saying ‘I didn’t know she could sing that good’. Reefer Madness, ‘Fame’ at the 2005 Emmys, the Veronica Mars episode ‘Clash of the Tritons’ say hi.November 30, 2013 at 1:40 pm #119674
I have not heard her sing yet, but I will be seeing ‘Frozen’ later today most likely. I’m looking forward to it.November 30, 2013 at 4:54 pm #119675
Olaf was hilarious and the Summer song genius, the rest ok…November 30, 2013 at 5:25 pm #119676
This is my #3 film of the year right now. Absolutely loved it, the best work Disney’s done in years. Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song winner. Could also sneak its way into Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay depending on just how high the box office gets.November 30, 2013 at 6:22 pm #119677
Yep, this was awesome, and the best Disney animated (non-Pixar) movie since The Lion King, one of the all-time greats. All around, the songs, story, characters, and voiceover performances were wonderful. A Best Picture nom would be deserved, along with screenplay, direction, nearly all tech categories (score, song, and sound editing/mixing especially), and acting (Kristen Bell for Actress and Josh Gad for Supporting Actor).November 30, 2013 at 6:58 pm #119678

I would put Frozen very slightly behind Wreck-it Ralph as the best post-Lion King Disney animated film.
Josh Gad certainly makes my supporting actor lineup, and if it weren’t for Jared Leto would probably be my winner.
Olaf will certainly become an iconic Disney character, and “Let It Go” will certainly become one of the iconic Disney songs.November 30, 2013 at 9:41 pm #119679
Just got back from ‘Frozen’. I loved it! It’s so good. All of the songs are good, especially “Let It Go”, and I think it’s officially the front runner for Best Animated Film and Best Original Song. All of the voice actors were strong, especially Josh Gad as Olaf. I agree with Beau who said that he’s Oscar worthy in Supporting Actor, because he really is. Olaf is a wonderful creation. The film is very funny, the animation is beautiful, and it’s also a touching story about the bond between sisters (or really any siblings).
