Hi, My Name is Kellie…

22 Jan

…and I’m a “Frozen”holic.

Well, while NY is covered in snow, I thought is an appropriate time to discuss my new found obsession with the movie “Frozen.”  Yes I know I’m late to join this club and yes I know I have training recaps and race recaps and other things to right about, but the first step to overcoming your addiction is admitting you have a problem.  So that’s what I’m doing.  My name is Kellie, and I’m a “Frozen”holic.

I don’t know if I was officially the last person, or at least the last Disneyholic person (yes I’m a holic of many things) to see this film.  Typically my husband and I don’t go see normal movies in the theater. If it’s not a super hero or sci-fi action adventure that require viewing in IMAX, we tend to save our money and wait for it to come out on video.  BUT, we had a gift card, and everyone was in WDW so I needed a Disney fix.

I can’t go into tremendous detail as to why I’m so in love with this movie as I don’t want to give things away in case you are one of the 5 people who haven’t seen it yet (GO SEE IT!).  But, basically, why I loved it so much, was because it reminded me of Disney films of old.  When “The Little Mermaid” came out, I became obsessed with that, singing all the songs, quoting all the funny lines I could remember, wearing out my cassette of the soundtrack.  I of course did the same thing when “Beauty and the Beast,” “Aladdin” and, obviously, “The Lion King.”  I enjoyed the other animated films that came out after that, but they never quite hit that same level that those first movies did.  Perhaps it was because by the time they came out I was getting older, becoming a teenager, who knows.  (I do still have-and enjoy- the soundtracks from Mulan, Hercules and the other films on my ipod).  Anyway, there was something about Frozen that brought me back to how I was when I first saw those earlier movies.

Without revealing too much, I mean, you laugh, you cry, you sing, it’s all there!  And I’m sorry, if your heart doesn’t break during “Do you want to build a Snowman?” you must be dead inside.  Maybe it’s because I’m a little sister and I used to be close to my big sister, but then for most of my life I wasn’t, but now I am again, I kinda, somewhat empathize with this a little…no, my sister does not have the ability to turn things to snow/ice.

What level does my obsession reach?  The moment we got home from the theater, I made “Fixer Upper” my ringtone for when my husband calls.  Before you think I’m mean, my husband LOVES this, and will in fact call me when he’s right next to me just so he can hear it.  I’ve listened to the soundtrack pretty much everyday and sing along to it at the top of my lungs when preparing dinner (sorry upstairs neighbors!).  While in WDW next month, my husband and I have to find an Olaf (and Sven).  My husband repeatedly asks if its available on DVD yet (I love how I’ve turned him -somewhat- into a Disneyholic too).  

I could go on to express my anger about how the existence of the “Best Animated Feature” category will now prevent any animated film for being nominated for best picture (“Beauty and the Beast” was nominated for Best Picture…first and only nominated film to have been).  I mean, come on, “Frozen” was in a category with 2 other animated films at the Golden Globes, and while cute/funny, they are not the same level as “Frozen.”  It could have EASILY been included in the “Best Musical or Comedy” category.  And how the hell did “Let it Go” not win best Original Song…Oscars you better fix that!

OK, there really is not point to this post other than I clearly have issues.  GO SEE “FROZEN”!!!!!! …just sayin’.

      Lol I think the addiction is relatively harmless, let’s keep it! And I want to shove some chocolate in my face!

    Kellie, you are not the last person or even the last Disneyholic to see Frozen. I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t seen it yet! I rarely see movies in the theater any more…the last one was Catching Fire, which came out on the same date as Frozen. Guess which one my husband wanted to see? I will likely see it and Saving Mr. Banks the way I saw Princess and the Frog and Monster’s University…at home when it comes out On Demand😦 But everyone keeps raving, so I can’t wait!

      Hi, my name’s Danielle and I haven’t seen Frozen yet either…

      Oops, bad Disney fan!

      I haven’t been to the movies in years, I always just wait for them to come out on DVD…just a few more months to wait, right??!

        It’s ok, I’m the same way. I just saw Planes and Monsters University and I still haven’t seen Tangled or the Princess and the Frog…I’m the worst right? Be thankful you haven’t seen it yet, I have the songs playing in my head as I type this.

      I can’t wait till it comes out On Demand and I saw it already! Oh, right, I’m an addict lol. Trust me, I rarely venture to the movies and am just so glad I did in this case! You’ll love it! I hope…

    I still haven’t seen it either!!! Although when I was in Disneyland I got to see the Frozen version of World of Color and it had pieces from the movie. I really want to see it!!! That and Saving Mr. Banks.

      I’m so jealous! Based on how amazing World of Color is in general I can only imagine how awesome the Frozen version is! And you MUST SEE IT!!! Just saying🙂
