Living with a dog is like having a furry drunk person following you around all the time.
Watch the entire “Let It Go” scene from Frozen featuring Idina Menzel performing as Elsa.
If you don’t wanna go see Frozen, this is the best 3:39 of the movie (except the short that plays beforehand). What a jam.
goosebumps every time!
Oh god Sarah you are so right
This character is basically Elphaba and Let it Go = No Good Deed
Biggest difference? Idina’s voice does not match this character or it’s expressions.
A voice so strong was not meant for a character so cotton candy soft. ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY DIDN’T MAKE HER EMOTIONAL RANGE LARGE ENOUGH TO MATCH THE INTENSITY OF THE MUSIC??? The song is good, yeah. But the energy in the scene from this character design makes me cringe. It’s fucking Rapunzel trying to sing a song from Wicked fucking fuck what.
This was really lazy, Disney.
Elsa is an Elphaba copy
i think the big problem with the emotional range is the fact that they literally went out of their way to not make her face contort with the emotional waves of the song, because they wanted to make her stay “pretty”. if you watch Idina Menzel sing, well, pretty much anything, but especially her songs from Wicked, she is EMOTING. she is earnestly performing ev-ry sing-le syll-a-ble. she’s not “attractive” when she does it, but that doesn’t matter, because you’re not looking at her for her face, you’re looking for the feeling.
if you watch the video, the song kills, but the disconnect comes from the fact that elsa isn’t emoting. and this goes right along with all the problems of the production. it’s quite obvious the animators don’t care enough, because you have this intense song being sung by this powerhouse of a performer, and they aren’t trying to make the match; it’s all halfhearted.
and elsa, if you ask me, is a poor-man’s elphaba, because she’s not emoting. when i listen to wicked, i respond, because i hear the emotions and i remember seeing how it was performed; i cried during defying gravity because of the performance. when i watch elsa, i can see menzel in my mind’s eye performing it in the recording booth, and the difference between the two is jarring.
toni is always better at saying what I want to say so reblogging again
and you know what? It’s sad when the most emotional part of the song happens when you can’t see the character’s face:
THAT STOMP WAS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF THE WHOLE SCENE WHEN THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN:
SHE IS LIFTING A GODDAMN SHOW PALACE
THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN FUCKING COOL
LOOK AT HER. AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC. AND CRINGE AT THE UNCOMFORTABLE DISPLACEMENT OF IT ALL WITH ME
“when i watch elsa, i can see menzel in my mind’s eye performing it in the recording booth, and the difference between the two is jarring.”
Y E S
((also this was the only song scene in the movie that actually made me feel anything….and now that I see it out of context it’s really mediocre, but compared to everything else, it was amazing and I called it “phenomenal” in my liveblog @_@))
I listened to this song repeatedly before I saw this film. The lack of emoting was stunning considering they got literally the strongest or one of the top three vocalist for this song. What bothered the most was the ending- that eyebrow raise, that defiant ‘I know I’m good, come and get me’. Clashed with a character that just beforehand was TERRIFIED of everyone and everything. I would have believed that moment if that character looked like she was going through the change and confidence instead of simply watching a character lip sync a song that clearly didn’t belong to her.
I feel like a scene that should have been all about her became a scene about showing the extent of Disney’s animating, which we already knew from Tangled. :l
^ ^ ^
not gonna lie, when i heard this song the first time (without the video) the first thing I thought was ‘how on earth are they gonna animate it so it fits the feeling of the song’ because obvs Idina Menzel’s voice hits you where it hurts and now that I’ve seen the video I’m a little bit sad…I don’t agree with all of the comments above, and I still want to see the movie, I’m just disappointed that the facial expressions don’t match the voice

do you ever see a picture of your internet friend for the first time and you just kinda think
it appears i have accidentally befriended a beauty goddess.
My mum broke her wrist and didnt want to go to her dinner party with an ugly cast so I broke out some brushes and painted Van Gogh’s ” Starry night ” on it for her.
oh yeah, no biggie, lemme just whip out my brushes and paint a lil something-something. easy.
if a boy ever says “someone’s on their period” to u when ur angry that is literally code for “punch me in the balls” so don’t hesitate
