I don't really care for it. I know I'm going to sound repetitive of the Nostalgia Critic here, but I need to agree with him that the ending was really good while the middle was a complete mess. I know a lot of fans say this movie is an underrated one that deserves more appreciation, but just not from me.

Not as far as I've seen. Nobody really talks about it that much, nor is it really celebrated by Disney. Release of merchandise is rare and far between, there was no big deal when the blu ray or DVD came out, and I rarely see it on people's lists on great Disney films. Understandably, it came out during Disney's slow era, and its age hasn't helped it much (nor did the god awful midquel they made!). As far as I'm concerned, it's one of Disney most under-appreciated movies. Which is a real shame, I love the subtly and somber tone of the film, very rare for Disney at the time! And young Copper is just so fricken' adorable! :love:

Strange, my experience is pretty different. The movie seems to have a cult following at least on DA with a lot of fanart and analyses of the film. Though I can agree marketing-wise it seems to be pretty ignored by Disney.

But The Fox and the Hound still stands as being one of my favorites for being one of Disney's darkest and saddest. :)

I like how The Fox and the Hound could fuck up a sequel (presequel), but the original is still great and not spoiled through it. You cant say that for many movies with a shit sequel, but good original.

There is nothing wrong with people liking "Frozen". I mean if anyone is allowed to dislike, then why can't anyone be allowed to love it the same way they love other animated Disney and non Disney movies. And it is still so annoying how many fools just won't shut up on how they hate Frozen on almost every single Disney song clip on YouTube. Yeah I get it's not your cup of tea, but honestly is that all any loser has to talk about with their spare time? They just can't give a real honest answer why they hate something, or only hate HOTR and Frozen for the same stupidest reasons that are already getting annoying. Anyways, I agree with a whole lot of this list.

I agree. I don't know why people have to treat Frozen like it's the apocalypse that they have to bash it 24/7 like they're under the movie's tyranny. Come on, it's 2016. Tell me when was the last time you heard a single "Let It Go" cover, hm?

Honestly I'm starting to feel so embarrassed just for liking this movie that even people YOUNGER than me in real life are talking about how the movie sucks right in front of me. :( It seems like everything I praised about the movie back in 2013 are the exact reasons why people hate it.

This Frozen hate has gone too far and I don't know what the hell is wrong with people who act like Frozen is the apocalypse or that their lives are in danger because of it. They must have serious, emotional, mental issues if they got nothing better to talk about in their lives other than how much they hate Frozen for the stupidest reasons. YOu shouldn't have to feel so embarrassed because of those fools who seem to have their brains rotted by bad cartoon based movies like Alvin and the Chipmunks that they can't tell the difference between a good movie and a real bad movie anymore. :roll:

Now now, let's not use mental problems to insult the haters. I'd say it's better to describe them as butthurt, overreactive, and self-centered like every hipster is.

Even their "reasons" for hating the movie don't even sound sincere anymore. Now it sounds more like they're just trying to hate the movie on purpose and are desperately trying to find whatever half-assed reason they can use to bash it. For example most of their reasons are completely biased like "Anna is so gullible and stupid! Why can't she be all perfect and smart after being sheltered from the outside world for 13 years? Elsa is such an angsty melodramatic drama queen! Why can't she just toughen up and grow a pair and easily walk off her years of PTSD and emotional trauma?"

You're right, they probably just don't know how to deal with their own personal issues and act like everything they hate personally in life is the end of their world, nothing but butthurt and overreactive crybabies who take it too personally and don't seem to understand that other people are allowed to like what they want and shouldn't go telling them not to do so.

That's what I just thought. These "reasons" still do not sound so meaningful or understanding at all, but just trying to think of any excuse to hate on it because they can't find other far worst movies that deserve to be bashed on. None of them understand anything about the main characters and did not pay any attention to why they were in that state to begin with, and you can't expect Elsa to just "toughen up" which is a word often used by insensitive heartless assholes who know nothing about what it means to suffer from depression, fear, self doubt, and anxiety all your life.

I USED to see very modest opinions from non-fans of the movie criticizing what they really felt the movie did wrong, but now I see that almost all the people who hate the movie are just completely nitpicky and one-sided, a lot of the hate stemming towards the sisters, ESPECIALLY Anna.

"Anna is so fucking stupid to fall in love with Hans after one day! She's practically teaching kids that it's okay to trust complete strangers!"
No, she's teaching the complete OPPOSITE. She REALIZED her mistake; the lesson of the day is basically stranger danger- being careful around people because sometimes they AREN'T what they seem. They even point this out in-universe! But still, how would you expect her to know? She was sheltered in a castle for 13 years with no friends, no sister, and no social contact with the outside world. She has no idea how the outside world works or what kind of people are out there. Any person in her condition would be excited to meet real people for the first time after emerging from 13 years of confinement. She isn't stupid; she's NAIVE.

"Elsa just makes her own problems worse! She ran away and put her kingdom in danger! She should have been seeking therapy, not being a whiny emo".
Hey you insensitive assholes. Elsa is not a "whiny emo". PTSD is a real thing. She injured her own sister, she was born with exotic magic that she can't control, and was told that she'll inflict fear and destruction on other people if they get out of hand. She WAS seeking therapy. Both she and her parents agreed that Elsa should be isolated in order to TRY and gain better control of her powers. They already emphasized that fear is the one thing that would make her powers worse; being around other people would only INCREASE her fear of hurting them. People with anxiety issues in real life, no matter how much treatment is given, will STILL have their anxiety come back to them (yes, these words came right from the experience of one of my DA friends with anxiety issues). And quite frankly, people with trauma and anxiety WILL make irrational decisions in life. You think Elsa could have perfectly controlled herself when she unintentionally exposed her powers to her kingdom? You think she'd have perfect mental competence that wouldn't have prompted her to run away from the fact that the thing she feared the most just came true? Isn't Elsa making mistakes with her emotional problems part of her ENTIRE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT?

"What was the point of Olaf? He contributes literally nothing to the plot and only exists to be an annoying comic relief and promote toys!"
Oh, I don't know, certainly not being symbolic of the sisters' love, starting a fire to warm Anna when she was freezing to death from inside-out, teach her what true love really is, and help her escape the room that Hans locked her up in.

"They just suddenly decided to make Hans a villain out of nowhere! WTF, why didn't we know about this earlier? He was clearly acting nice towards the royal sisters!"
It's called a plot twist. You're acting like Disney has never done it before. Fine, it may be subjective to think whether the twist was forced or not, but the context was clearly there, and there's a lot of subtle moments hinting his true nature. His backstory of being neglected by his siblings, how robotic he acts towards Anna, and the fact that he shot the chandelier in an attempt to murder Elsa. Oh but of course, you just don't want to care to take a second look, hm?

"IT'S JUST FUCKING EVERYWHERE!"

Modest problems I don't have a problem with as much, unless they were beyond egotistical, self-centered, insecure, or downright mean spirited. This is the same thing that happened with HOTR, people being all whiny and obnoxious over the main characters being cows or being more of a 40s and 50s Disney, as if there is something wrong with that time period. Now when it comes to Frozen, the apocalypse has come? :confused: :roll:

As if people were not paying attention to why Anna really said YES to Hans, despite not knowing him too much and after one day. They don't seem to realize that she barely had enough contact with other people outside the castle and was never truly taught by anyone about stranger danger, and possibly only turned to books which she thought were the answers to what she was seeking. Usually people will do things out of loneliness, and that is what happened to her. I wouldn't blame her for being naïve and not wanting to believe, but she did realize what a mistake she made about Hans and admitted to Olaf that she didn't know what love was, other than what she read in story books.

I can't stand insensitive heartless assholes who act like it's not ok to feel sad or scared, despite they don't seem to know anything about what it means for anyone to sometimes suffer from depression, anxiety, loneliness, or fear, and Elsa's parents were keeping her confined as a way of finding out how to help her control those powers until further notice and hope she doesn't accidentally hurt someone else. I struggle with anxiety and depression myself once in a while, so to tell yourself to just "toughen up" like that is not really all that simple. And that's not the way of getting rid of the problem either. There is no doubt that Elsa feared there would come a time where her powers were exposed intentionally or accidentally someday and she tried keeping it all under control, even in public. Of course Elsa making mistakes with her emotional problems is the point of the movie, which people fail to understand.

Olaf was the symbol of the sisters' friendship, so he wasn't there just for nothing and not just for laughs. He even risked being melted to help Anna stay warm. If it wasn't for him, Elsa would have been dead and Anna would be frozen in the locked room.

No matter how I feel about Hans, never knowing if he was just evil the moment he was born or if his past remains a mystery, his reveal was a plot twist and a hard lesson of trusting strangers too soon, whether it was forced or not. This was the lesson on stranger danger as Anna finds out. Maybe we'll never truly know his entire backstory, whether or not he was telling the truth about his siblings not treating him like a real loving brother just because he was the youngest. But he was still a villain that had to be stopped.

So what if Frozen is everywhere you big crybabies! So are all the other good and bad movie characters, yet you can't find anything better to whine and cry about? That is all I've been seeing on YouTube for a while.

Here's an essay has a really good analysis in defense of Anna- hafanforever.tumblr.com/post/1…

For years I've seen people complain that Disney Princesses are too Mary Sue-ish and unrelatable, and now after Frozen comes out people go a complete 360 and criticize Elsa for being melodramatic and full of angst. You realize these aren't first-world problems RIGHT? Experiencing trauma is more than just petty angst; it's the spark of years of emotional turmoil and being broken down from inside-out. Yes, how dare they portray anxiety and human struggles realistically. How dare they indeed. :sarcasm:

And a CGI animated movie that you don't like is popular?

Boo.

Fucking.

Hoo.


You know, if you're that offended just by people liking a piece of media that you don't, then why not just avoid contributing to the oversaturation? Hypocrites. :iconnobodycaresplz:
