Announcement: Second Draft of “Frozen” Video Review is Finished
Draft number two of the Frozen review is complete!
One of the commentators of this blog jokingly suggested that this video review was instead turning into a documentary about the state of American animation and how nostalgia is ruining the prospects for something better. To be honest, the more I write, the more the review seems to be turning into just that. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen.
For now, though, I must take at least a week away from this latest draft. A little distance will more clearly reveal where there’s room for improvement. Before I begin writing again, certain measures will be taken:
– Yet another viewing of Frozen, this time perhaps with friends who can provide different opinions
– Research on a few things Frozen. So far, my analysis has only been based on what I’ve gathered from the film itself. Research could potentially make for a much more well-rounded argument. Maybe delving into “behind-the-scenes” stuff will even clarify certain aspects, including things that should have been apparent in the film itself, and maybe even things that were never clear to me thanks to my limited knowledge. Who knows. Hell, I already found a transcripted interview of co-director/screenwriter Jennifer Lee discussing the writing of the script in great detail.
– A basic re-evaluation of the structure of the entire review. Moving some sections around, adding new ones, removing pointless/redundant ones, etc., etc., etc. Business as usual.
Frankly, you could call this whole project an “obsession” and I would not be the least bit offended.
Also, I’ll be binging the rest of Book Three of The Legend of Korra tomorrow, which is when the finale will air. It’ll be interesting seeing how each episode holds up back-to-back-to-back. Hopefully this season will actually be worth it!
