when it’s put like that, the idea is frankly terrifying.
I never thought of it like that.
I promise it will be worth it. It’s pretty cool.
even though rise of the guardians was hyped to all holy hell and was a cruddy movie everyone on this site was still so forgiving and there was even posts going around like “if you want movies with high quality animation like rotg, go see it! give em your money!”
now people are like straight up freaking out about frozen absolutely refusing to go see it when its actually way more well reviewed than rotg.
its fine to not like a movie, and believe me frozen disappointed me in a lot of ways as well, mostly concerning how disappointing the story is and how lame the leads look but…
why is frozen so badly recieved on this site? because of the animation error? im genuinely confused?
It’s definitely a bandwagon mentality. And also a “put it to the man” mentality too. Because Disney is a large corporation and Dreamworks, which made rotg, is a smaller corporation. Disney has more influence but a lot of people consider Dreamworks to be more ‘artsy’ I guess. And it wasn’t just the animation error. That was just fuel for the fire.
Honestly, I’d only heard from one person that Frozen sucked before I saw it. I didn’t pay attention to anything Frozen related on tumblr because I didn’t care about it. But then my friend told me it sucked so I had to watch it, and I’m gonna take a guess and say that everyone hates it because it really is just an awful movie. I have not seen Rise of the Guardians, but I’ve seen a lot of fanwork for the characters. I’m gonna take a shot in the dark and guess that, despite its flaws, people ‘forgive’ RotG because it had unique, likable characters, maybe even good humor or an interesting (even if it might’ve been poorly done) plot. But Frozen doesn’t have any of these things. It’s just sloppy…it feels like a project someone put together the NIGHT before their final was due and it was for like half their grade. It was done, it was passable, but it wasn’t really thought through or had any real effort put into it.
On that same note, I think it also has to do with the whole ‘women are hard to animate’ issue, but I think people are familiar enough with that that I don’t have to go on about it.
Just my opinion tho.
Oh p.s. it took me like a solid 5 minutes to figure out what that animation error was, and even then I didn’t think it was a big deal.
imagine a pacific rim video game with really great character customisation and you start in jaeger training or something and instead of romance options there’s drift compatibility and the person you get as a partner depends on which dialogue choices you pick throughout all of your training and instead of classes there’s different types of jaeger and THEN YOU GO KICK SOME KAIJU ASS
