The cranky film review of the day

"Frozen" as the Shining. 
You'll notice the characters who meet their icy demise at the ends of these movies don't match up. Because love. When Anna sacrifices herself to save Elsa—despite the fact that Elsa almost killed her twice—she is able to save them both, teaching Elsa that love can conquer a cold death and help her control her dangerous wintery outbursts.
I mean, it's not "The Shining," y'all. It's Disney's "The Shining." So, Kristoff doesn't get an ax plunged into his chest, Olaf doesn't have to face "Heeeeere's Johnny!" and Anna and Elsa and Olaf and everyone can live happily ever after.

Am I the only one who thinks that Elsa is a narcisstic bitch? And if you think that love conquers all, maybe you are living in a fairly tale.

One clue that a movie isn't quite up to speed is putting a brand name on the it's "Disney's Frozen" although Disney has been dead for 50 years.
