Yeah I just don’t get the big deal. I’ve watched it twice now and was seriously underwhelmed both times. 

There’s no actual conflict. The story is actually the dumbest thing ever. And the characters are horrendously one-dimensional.

"I had the trainer get me a hot dog," John Garrett said. "Nobody saw you, the only person who knew was the trainer. The best hot dogs in the league, by the way, were at Le Colisee. Toasted buns and everything. So I’m eating one and Dan Bouchard was the (starting) goalie. So he’s playing and the game is going OK, so I figured I’m not going in this one. Some nights, when the other team scores three quick ones, you had a hint you might be going in so you get rid of the dog. But he lets in one goal and he’s (ticked) off at whoever’s on the ice at the time and he just charged off the ice.

"Well, I’m sitting there and I’ve go the hot dog tucked in my pad. So I’ve got to go in and I stand up and put my mask on. I can’t reach down and dig the dog out of my pads, people are looking at me. So I go out there and finish the game. I had to fall down a couple of times and mustard and ketchup was flying. I had to tighten the straps on my pads so the dog doesn’t come out. The trainer’s just killing himself (with laughter)."

The worst part about Frozen is that there’s no reason for me to care about what happens. The story is dumb and there’s no exposition.

RIP Gabriel Garcia Marquez

erikkarlsson65:

One of my favorite authors died today at age 87. He was Columbian and captured me with his Book “Love in the Time of Cholera”; the story of a fifty year love affair. His autobiography, written when he thought he was dying, is special and worth reading. It is not a puff piece but a frank account of his life.

If you aspire to be a writer, or just like to read magical realism, you will enjoy his work. Peace.
