‘Frozen’ Review

Sometimes great artistry comes from coloring inside the lines.

Walt Disney Animation's newest film, 'Frozen,' does precious little to push the boundaries of narrative storytelling. Indeed, it is a quite predictable – might I even suggest formulaic - culmination of elements. While picking over the bones of a half-remembered Hans Christian Andersen story, 'The Snow Queen,' Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck's film expands certain themes, disposes of some characters and, of course, modernizes a bit for contemporary audiences. However, miraculously, this doesn't feel like a Xerox of a Xerox impersonating a classic Disney film. There's precious little winking; hardly any of the 'Shrek'-effect. 'Frozen' has enough of the goods to play it straight and succeed on its own terms. It is a major entry in family-friendly entertainment, one that ought to reverberate for years with tie-in toys and stage productions.

Disney Encourages Audiences to Bring iPads to ‘Little Mermaid’ Screenings

For their upcoming re-release of 'The Little Mermaid,' the studio wants you and your kiddos to bring your iPads to screenings for a special interactive experience. Oh brother.

The Disney characters are a big part of what makes the Disney parks experience special for most kids and more than a few adults. Sometimes you only have time for a hug and a photo before the character moves on to the next guest and you move on to see how long the line at Space Mountain is

The Best Meme Reactions to Disney’s Lucasfilm Acquisition

In case you missed it -- Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4 billion dollars. They also own Marvel now too. To put it in other words, all that stuff you liked as a kid to prove you're not a girl is now owned by the people who made 'Beauty and the Beast.' (On the bright side, the next 'Kingdom Hearts' game could be totally sick.) Of course, not everybody is looking on the bright side. Some of them are making memes. Here are our favorites.

Disney Buys Lucasfilm: ‘Star Wars’ Episode 7 Coming in 2015

It's been hard to call myself a "Star Wars" fan over the past few years. The prequel trilogy was definitely shiny and high-tech, but it definitely lacked the magic of the original three films. Plenty of my friends have shared the opinion that George Lucas needs to hand the reins over to someone else and step back from his legacy; and it looks like he's just done exactly that.
