TDC#277 Frozen and the Bechdel Test

Hello podcast listeners, Lisa here. there is alot going on in this week’s show – Snowball greets us and then we talk about Frozen, a bunch of other Disney movies and the Bechdel test. I just want to say here and now, that I liked Frozen fine. I give it a C+/B-. Perhaps I will like it more on repeat viewings, but it’s fine they made that. I think it is awesome that people seem so into it though, even if I don’t really get it – I mean, I’ve got friends on their 5th and 6th viewings! Glad this movie should be a hit for Disney, but I found it a bit… derivative (HAHAHAHAHAH you are saying IT’S DISNEY DUH). I really had high hopes to craft an amazing music montage highlighting some of Frozen’s soundtrack with other songs I feel are VERY similar (insert Wicked soundtrack here). But OK. That didn’t really happen, but go with me in spirit, K? 🙂

Next week we will be back with everything Reunion 2013 – and maybe a little more Snowball. Happy Holidays!

Lisa and Trace went to see Toy Story 3, and we all need to regroup a bit. Not everyone is as big a fan of the film as the Watchamacallit. Plus, not everybody stayed awake for the whole film.

By the way, that Ken video that the Watchamacallit mentioned? If you haven’t watched it yet, time to head to YouTube to watch Groovin’ With Ken.

And those Toy Story 3 Vinylmation that Trace mentioned? Oh yeah, Jennifer’s gonna be looking for those in the parks.
