Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 is among the best documentaries about filmmaking I've ever seen. This is a insightful look at the everyday lives of people working on a Disney film and the trials and tribulations that come along with it. It would have been really easy to make this series a fluff piece and show just how "INSPIRING" working on this film was. This easily could have been just a long ad to show why you should like and appreciate Frozen 2 and the Disney animated film canon. I'm happy to say the series goes a lot deeper then just being an ad. This film shows in detail so much about how these movies get made and I was surprised by the honesty that comes across. For instance, there were moments in the script they didn't have fully worked out and they were already animating the film. It's a difficult process, especially for Frozen 2 because they had a lot of issues wanting this story to translate and resonate with kids and adults alike.

If you read my original review for Frozen 2 when the film came out, you would know that I wasn't a fan of it at first. I thought the story was a bit messy and the ending was too easy. They retread some themes of the first film a little too closely. However, I saw it again in theatre after having some friends tell me they think I should reexamine the film and I grew a lot more warmth for it. After watching this documentary, I hold a lot of respect and admiration for this film I wouldn't have had before. One of my biggest issues with the Disney Animated Films is that some like to retread the same story beats over and over again. As much as I love Moana and Frozen, well they both follow the same story beats Tangled had years prior and those are beats Tangled stole from Beauty and the Beast almost fifteen years before that. Yet, Frozen 2 goes a bit outside the box and presents a sequel that actually expands on its world and shows the emotional ramifications of its characters. Shown beautifully through Anna's arc which is one of my favorite arcs in any Disney movie.

This documentary explores the inspiration for the song "Do the Next Right Thing" and it is absolutely devastating. It just shows that the filmmakers on these movies are putting real soul and sorrow within these films and are teaching kids to not be afraid of their scariest and most repressed emotions and you have to admire that.

I think the documentary is wonderful and moving and I would recommend it to anyone. However, this hits a sweet spot with me. Ever since I came out of Toy Story 3 when I was twelve years old I aspired to become a Disney Animator and want to make my own animations and stories. Seeing all of these people come together to create this work of art and the type of catharsis they got from that was so refreshing. I felt like, "yes, they get it. They understand this desire I have" and all I do is hope and pray that someday I'll be sitting at one of those animation tables. For now though, I'll just do the next right thing and see where that takes me.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.

@lilyjmoe

CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

I Went To Disney For The First Time Since COVID-19 And It's Officially The Cleanest Place On Earth

I stopped focusing on the pandemic simply because, for the first time in months, I felt safe.

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
