Today I took Jasper, Sela, Carys and Danielle to see Frozen. There were a bunch of us going and fortunately, I ended up besides Ursula. Which meant I didn't get hissed at when I googled things on my phone (ie: length of movie).
After the movie, I went to Rotten Tomatoes to see how the movie rated. To my SHOCK, it scored 89percent. POSITIVE!
This is a surprise to me as I did not enjoy this movie. My review: I liked the snowman and the positive message at the end, but um, nothing else really. The animation was good, but spoiled for me because the animation of the two princesses faces are 90 per cent eyes. Society scorns China for the abandoned practise of binding feet, but Disney and Pixar princess feet look fairly tiny and bound to me!
So there is a positive message for girls about love that matters and a negative message about how beauty looks.
It didn't make that much of an impact on any of us, although we all agreed we liked the snowman, the foil of the show.
At the end of the day, if you want to see a good Christmas movie, watch Die Hard.
I am done packing for the kids for Harbin. This makes me very happy. We are going to smell very badly after all this is done because they are taking two pairs of trousers, two thermal shirts, and a few other things. But basically, we are dressing for the cold.
I am also getting ready for Christmas day, cutting up veggies in advance as well as making Christmas eve dinner. Liza is heading off at around noon on the 24th so we are trying to get all the stuff that requires adults to be out of the house done now. Just about all the Christmas shopping is taken care of as well.
Tomorrow, a drs appointment, a Christmas exhibition, and fingers crossed, a quiet family night.
