To not want to watch Frozen now?

(51 Posts)

DH is obsessed with the bloody SONG. And the african tribe version which he sent me saying it was "amazing". OK, the singer is talented, but I was unmoved. (Sorry.)

He says everyone is obsessed with the song after they have seen the film. Yet he has watched it alone. I made the mistake of saying that maybe we could watch films like this as a family, because I'm not often moved to watch animated children's films (or any films, really) alone and now he's decided that I can use "my" weekend to decide to watch it altogether. Which I probably will, because he won't choose to watch a film on "his" weekend and DS only wants to play Family Minecraft. hmm

You've suggested you should watch family movies together. Everyone else ( have I got this right?) likes frozen and wants to watch it with you.

It's about 90 minutes long. Fwiw I loved it and would happily snuggle on the sofa on a wet weekend afternoon watching it again.

I'm not really seeing why you feel what is being asked of you is unreasonable.

It's not a fab film at all. It's really really shit and they keep bursting into song. And all the songs are really cheesy and shit. Can you tell I didn't like it? And it went on and on and on.

I loved frozen. By far one of the best films disney has made

90 minutes melanie? I wish it had only been 90 minutes! Must have been at least 4 hours.

OK, it was a bit of a lighthearted thread, I am not having a massive dilemma.

I would pick something else on my weekend but I don't think anyone else will pick to watch it. Which means that DH will keep going on about it and bursting into song and I will continue to be irritated unless I watch it.

Actually I felt similarly irritated by Tangled until I watched it and really loved it, but then the song in Tangled is good and not irritating. Let it Go is irritating. Possibly, unless you know the ~significant meaning~ of it. Or maybe this is just another example of where DH and I have weirdly opposing music taste.

Frozen has been on all day with dgd, have taken "queen Elsa" round Morrison's, wearing a combination of snow whites dress and Jasmine's top, sparkly shoes and a wand, she has pranced along, "freezing" all the customers and staff. Oh, and singing at the top of her voice.

I've heard (I'm a die hard Disney fan!) that they're making it into a broadway show. Don't know if that's true but the songs are certainly written as though that was in mind.

Ha yes Itsaboatjack, perfect. Itchy-palm inducing, but better than the original.

Nobody else will pick, because DH doesn't see the point of watching films as a family, he can't enjoy it when DS is asking a million questions and fidgeting, so he likes to watch things alone. He watches a METRIC TON of TV, because he's always watching it while doing other things. (No, I do not understand this argument either confused although I think he watches new things by actually concentrating on them and old favourites while doing other stuff, including working. He has 3 computer monitors on his desk at work.)

I don't often feel compelled to watch TV/films on my own unless it's something I REALLY want to see. I also feel like I want to spend more time with DS so watching a film together is a nice way to accomplish both seeing a film and spending time with him. Plus, I think it's a nice thing to do as a family. I feel (for me) it's a bit of a waste to watch a children's film on my own when I could be watching it with DS.

They have 'sing-along' showings to Frozen at my cinema
I'm never going to that

TheFowlAndThePussycat Mon 17-Feb-14 22:27:44

It gets better OP, the DDs and I are going to the cinema to the Frozen 'sing-along' version tomorrow, complete with lyrics and bouncing ball! Your DH would love that [evil grin].

TheFowlAndThePussycat Mon 17-Feb-14 22:28:33

Ha, x-post underthebluemoon!

It's not a musical. It has four songs I think. I don't think the songs are all that....but they've certainly been very popular. Let It Go is the best one. It's ok I suppose.

Worst thing about Frozen is the pointless and deeply irritating snowman.

It's no Brave or Tangled, but it's quite good.

Googles sing-a-long Frozen screenings.....

Oldandcobwebby Mon 17-Feb-14 22:39:53

I really liked Frozen, but the shrillness of the songs really irked me. Bring back Phil Harris!

Oh, see, I love sing along disney. Bah. I may be converted.

YY the shrillness is annoying. Not keen on shrill singing. I can see it's talented but I tend to sing along to things in my head (? Not sure if this even makes sense) and it gives me a headache trying to reach the notes.

I've never thought about that before. I think maybe I am deeply weird.

I just tried that....I can't do it without moving my face

It's like how you make notes change when you hum.

Frozen was rubbish as I was not expecting so much singing and general girlyness (and went with four eight year old boys..). Don't remember the song at all, but wait til you see the Lego Movie and can't stop singing "Everything is Awesome!!" continually...

Oh, now, the Lego movie I am looking forward to. Unfortunately it's not out here for months.

girliefriend Mon 17-Feb-14 23:01:28

I am amazed at how many of you are saying you loved it confused I took my dd and was really hmm at how they portrayed girls and women in it. plus all the singing did my head in

sonlypuppyfat Mon 17-Feb-14 23:04:11

I loved it and I usually loath anything musical I've even bought the soundtrack too!

plus3 Mon 17-Feb-14 23:04:32

Everything thing is cool when you are part of a team

RunRabbit Mon 17-Feb-14 23:04:39

I'm excited to see the Lego Movie. I thought The Croods and Epic were meh too.
