How much do I hate Frozen and all this mania associated with it?

Ahh, Frozen. The tale of how a girl named Elsa with magical ice powers isolates herself from her sister Anna, who ventures to get her back with the help of the iceman Kristoff, his reindeer Sven and the ever wacky Olaf. Sometimes, it bewilders me how popular the movie has become, to the point where it has reached the status of a franchise. It is that exact popularity which serves as the reason why I detest this movie and everything about it, everything except its message of course.

 

 

Now don't get me wrong. Were this movie a lot more subtle and a whole lot less in-your-face, I might've been able to respect its presence. Unfortunately, things didn't work out that way, and now I wonder when this will end. The films, the franchise, the frenzy among girls to buy Elsa and Anna dresses. Heck, even the naming of newborns after the characters themselves! And now, with a short being shown before the Cinderella remake and a sequel on the way, I wonder how I will survive this. How I will be able to put up with Frozen being constantly shoved in my face at every corner. Why am I writing this rant? Well, it's quite simple. On St. Patrick's Day, my hometown of Ballincollig held a contest to see how many Elsas they could fit into one place. The record was set at 771. Posters for the event were put up everywhere, and even a local barbershop had a mural painted on its windows dedicated to the event. Wondering for the life of me how Frozen had anything to do with St Patrick's Day, I decided enough was enough and that I needed to blow off some steam on this matter. Obviously, I had to go and march in the parade in Cork City, but knowing that coming back there to get a Shamrock Shake, I'd probably run into an Elsa at every corner was a nightmare for me.

 

Anyway, I have had quite enough of this Frozen mania. I hope it blows over before the sequel is released and I pray to God for the souls of the next generation who will no doubt be inundated with songs from maybe the next three or four sequels, merchandise that will fill their kid's rooms to the rafters and a general takeover of internet culture by Frozen. Suddenly I know how an anti-brony feels, and by God, it's not a good thing in the slightest.

What a coincedence, I live in Ballincollig aswell! :D

 

And yeah, I remember the "Calling all Elsas" posters around the place. I was like "Oh Jesus, we're doomed". I hate Frozen aswell. I thought it was a bad movie and it's one of my least favourite Disney films. And I also find the whole Frozen-mania unbearable aswell. Hell, when I was on Patrick's Street in December, there was a choir of girls singing "Let it Go". Why doesn't Frozen just die already?!

It was an alright movie, but I really am getting sick of all the merchandizing and the songs. I can't say I hate the film, but I kind of hope the sequel kills the franchise

@GrauWitz I can still remember the look on my face when I saw the posters. It tensed up purely from horror and confusion. Horror at how it seemed like Frozen was blatantly refusing to crawl back into the hell hole it came from and confusion at how this had anything to do with St. Patrick's Day, a day where people were supposed to dress up in green, get out there and for one day in their lives, do random shit and feel no shame about it. But this was encouraging people (kids yes, but still) to throw on their cringeworthy Elsa dresses and storm the place. I'm just glad I wasn't there to see it.

Ugh, Frozen. I used to love it, but the second time I realized just how badly paced it was, and that it wasn't anthing groundbreaking in quality or progressiveness. Tangled is so much better...>.>

I haven't even seen this damn movie and I still hate it. It's supposed to be an adaptation of The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen, but looks to have little to absolutely freaking nothing to do with the original story, Let it Go is ungodly annoying, and speaking of ungodly annoying, Olaf. He's a snowman who wants to experience summer. There's being comic relief and then there's just being a moron. A snowman wanting to experience hot weather would be the latter.

I feel like the film is forever going to be in the minds of people, but hopefully it'll start dying down after this sequel. It's already weird enough for Disney to be doing so.

I'm sorry, I had to use this for this situation! It was destiny! lol


Yeah, even though I think Frozen is a really cute film, they overhyped it, and i'm not one for overhyped material....which is why I choose to not collect merchandise, and remain a casual fan of the movie. So I don't blame you at all haha
