Kristoff is Now One of My Favorite Disney Men

I watched 'Frozen 2' with my baby girl yesterday and I was honestly really surprised by how much I enjoyed it. This is actually exactly how I felt after watching 'Frozen' six years ago - on DVD, I might add. Yes, that's how long ago it has been since the first 'Frozen' movie came out. DVDs were still a hue thing.

Anyway... I still remember watching it on DVD and bawling my eyes out during the sister scenes because, well, I simply wasn't close to my sister growing up and it made me wish I had that kind of sisterly love in my life.

The only scene in 'Frozen' I could relate to. :p

This time around, I found myself bawling my eyes out because of all of the mother scenes because, well, my mom and I have never gotten along and it made me wish I had that kind of motherly love in my life. The only thing I can really do from here on out is be that kind of mother for Syrena.

The sappiness aside, I absolutely loved the soundtrack and how the songs in the actual movie are completely different from the songs in the credits - though both versions of each song are equally amazing. (Check them out on Spotify!)

Fun fact: Olaf's Samantha line was improvised by Josh Gad and made it into the film.

I was also surprised to find myself loving Olaf and almost dying of laughter at his one-liners. See, I used to get annoyed by Olaf. He was the C3PO of 'Frozen' for me. But in this one, he really stole the show. I especially loved his re-enactments of past events ala Luis in 'Antman'.

And let's not forget that ultra adorable salamander Bruni. PLEASEEEEE. He was like a puppy and basically everything I look for in a Disney toy.

Most importantly, though, Kristoff's character arc was downright mindblowing. In the first installment of 'Frozen', he didn't really make an impact on me and let's face it: Hans stole that show, being the villain and having one of the best songs in it and all.

In 'Frozen 2', however, Kristoff is nothing short of amazing. He has a boyband-like solo in the woods. He doesn't get mad at Anna for always doing what she has to do, even if it ruined his proposal plans several times and left him alone in the woods with a bunch of reindeer. And most importantly, when Anna is running towards the dam, he (literally) sweeps her off her feet and instead of being the knight of shining armor, he says, "I'm here. What do you need?" LET'S. GO. KRISTOFF.

Clocking in at 1h43m, 'Frozen 2' is just the right length for a Disney movie. It won't leave you longing for more, and it won't make you check your watch to see how much longer you need to sit through it. 'Frozen 2' is a breath of fresh air and I'm honestly still on a 'Frozen 2' high, singing the songs everywhere and even learning it on the ukulele. It's worth the cinema visit. Go watch it.
