Frozen vs the wind rises
I’m reading so many posts saying How the wind rises should have won because it is the last film of hayao miyazaki. I love Disney and I love hayao miyazaki but just because it is someone’s last film does not mean they should automatically get the award.
Another thing is…
it’s honestly not that. people mentioning that The Wind Rises is the last film is not the core of the reason why it should have won, it’s not even close to importance. Yet, it adds to injury, so obviously people mention it a lot.
Why I, personally, was outraged about Frozen winning is because while I usually LOVE Disney work and for example their recent Tangled was beyond good in my opinion and I still rave about how good it was, Frozen, to me, was a failrue. While I loved the design of characters like Elza and Kristoff and Let it Go is amazing as a song and clip outside of the movie, movie itself got weak plot, with weak story start and unlogical and weak resolution (actually, NO resolution, because LOVE? Hello, Elza’s love for Anna is the only freaking CONSTANT of the movie) and I wasnt touched while watching it even once. Characters are not that dimensional, story is not that layered, and the whole problem of the movie was set up in such stupid way?? i mean Elza bottled herself because her parents were shitty at parenting and outright told her to do so and she did, because she loved her sister and was beyond scared of hurting her. How on earth it led to Elza actually melting Anna after she was sure she was dead and then go ‘I GET IT! LOVE IS THE ANSWER!’ is beyond me. Just WHAT. Overall, Frozen left a ‘hallfassed’ impression on me, and for a Disney movie it was a honest first for me. And it’s fine with me if people liked it. At very least, animators did great ‘cause picture wise movie had it’s very beautiful moments. It’s not really a bad work overall.
But compare it with Kaze Tachinu and give it an award of any sort?
Because not only Kaze Tachinu was beautiful, not only it had down to earth, very human characters with their very human lives, not only it was drawn with such a detail - how they animated littlest of human ticks, like bounching a leg under the table when you have too much pent up energy or like smoothing out a curling paper sheet while drawing. Things like that. To me, only that one scene when Jiro’s dying wife is asking him to sit closer and he slides his table right by her futon and works onehanded to hold her hand, the heartbreaking everyday of it, the soulcrushing normality of it, how it’s their eveyday now, it was worth ten oscars alone. How this only scene shows how they go about their lives, with him being busy, with her dying, how this little contact is why she actually adandoning her chances at curing - to be close to him, to feel loved by him, this immediate, gentle contact. How the story flows, how it is told, how it wrapped. The beauty of it, the horror of it, the pain of it. How war can paint honest and kind man’s dream with blood, how weapons are not always are made by people who want to kill anyone. How he’s such a gentle, kind man, yet doesnt seemingly terribly mind making his airplanes carry weapons - he just goes with it, because he wants to make airplanes, and it’s the only way to make them, at the time. It’s a difficuld, layered, deep movie. It touches your soul, it makes you think, it makes you wonder.
That’s the problem here. That’s why I am outraged. Because halfassed Disney movie was compared to Miyazaki’s masterpiece and for whatever reason was rised above it and I just dont see HOW.
Yep, absolutely agree!
No way, Frozen? （)´д`(）
I seen Kaze Tachinu/The Wind Rises in Japan and go out of the cinema with a face wet with tears. And I have so many feels and after think about many things. After nearly half year in Russia started showing and I went to see him again. And crying again! You understand? Kaze Tachinu/The Wind Rises makes you FEEL emotions and empathize. And what a lovely there 2D animation? ♥ This is the moment when you look and realize that 3D sucks.
And what after Frozen? NOTHING! Great song, maybe.

"I can’t find the words. It was such a difficult programme for me and I felt rough, physically. I’m just shocked. I was trying not to think about winning a gold medal, but I couldn’t deflect the pressure, which was massive. I’m so proud of this feat as a Japanese.” - Yuzuru Hanyu (x)
