Frozen VS Moana

Frozen VS Moana

The queen and the chief's daughter.

"Moana" is a great movie. "Frozen" is a good movie. They are seemingly so different that I don't even want to compare the two. But I will. I loved Frozen, I saw it three or four times in theaters. Believe me, I was on the Frozen train for quite awhile - but I have to acknowledge the faults in its very appeal. Starting with the fact that Frozen was in fact not the first movie to focus on relationships outside that of the romantic realm. I wouldn't even say it did that much outside of romance in the first place considering Ana is a Disney princess who has two love interests.

From a plot standpoint, Moana is a superior movie -especially if we are talking in terms of being revolutionary and/or meaningful. Moana has no love interest to speak of, it's just her and the open sea. This focus on one character instead of a couple gave room for so much character development and more intimate moments. But the audience still gets exposed to a variety of characters as the main character goes about her journey. While Frozen was charming, some parts seemed rushed or condensed due to what I can only assume was a lack of time to expand. I personally don't feel like Elsa reached a point in her character development that would truly allow her to come to the conclusion that she does in the end. More than half the movie is just her in an ice castle -fearing her own powers. There is no self discovery; she only finds some sort of answer in her sister's sacrifice, and that is still unsatisfactory.

On the other hand, Moana is all about self discovery. Like Elsa, Moana has her doubts, but unlike Elsa, people are calling Moana out on her doubts. Moreover, Moana is able to liberate herself from her own doubts and show real personal growth. Where I will give Frozen props is, wherein Moana roots itself in bravery, Frozen is rooted in sacrifice. While I clearly have a favorite movie, both have great soundtracks and create engaging, relatable characters. The animations are beautiful and each teach their own important lessons. Moana and Frozen both have a special place my heart. But for me, Moana is definitely shaping up to be one of my favorite disney princesses. Time to go watch it again (I am being completely serious).

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

I Am Not OK That 'New Girl' Is Over

Please, be kind to me in this very difficult time.

As many of you may know, New Girl, one of the best shows on the planet just ended on FOX. I, like many others, am very upset about this, and will only be able to come to terms with this horrible loss to our TV screens that we will only actually realize next Tuesday when we turn on our TVs and realize that New Girl will not be airing a new episode and our hearts will break.

The only way to cope with this loss will obviously be by playing True American, the drinking game with no rules and a surprising amount of American History facts or by binge-watching the show from the beginning on Netflix at least three times. To assist in the healing process after we have lost this show that we have all loved so much, I will be attaching a large amount of New Girl Gifs for us all to look at and use to heal.

Note: I am absolutely not doing this because I need to make a deadline tonight and nothing interesting has happened for me to write about in the past week. That is definitely, totally, 100% not the reason that I am doing this. It's not because I was working the last few days and couldn't think about what to write. I promise. I am only doing this out of the goodness of my heart for all of you to heal. Totally.

Oh, don't we all.

Us right now, because the best show in the world ended.

When FOX tries to announce new shows that aren't New Girl.

We deserved more Ruth than we got.

Can I suggest a spin-off focusing on Ruth, Cece, and Schmidt? Because I would watch that.

Okay, I think for my sanity that I should stop now and go grocery shopping for my mother.

Goodbye New Girl, you will be missed.
