HOW DOES POPCORN EVEN DO THAT THING
HERE I SHOW YOU THE THING

it’s like a ballet
Yeaaa I’m just going to use Pitch’s gif for anything now.
"The former Queen of Arendelle and the Queen of Corona are sisters, which make Rapunzel, Anna, and Elsa cousins." Submitted by Anonymous.
IS THIS REAL
And in the beginning of Frozen you can see Rapunzel and Flynn :)
I believe this to be true
her hair absolutely fazes through her arm
but hey at least she looks hot
can /you/ do any better?
I mean god damn are you people seriously going to pick at every little thing DID YOU NOT SEE HOW FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE BACKGROUND WAS? HOW WONDERFULLY ANIMATED THE ICE AND SNOW AND MAGIC WAS?
Not to mention how INCREDIBLE her voice sounds in this scene
But no, is all ruined because a cartoon had her hair phase through her arm
um hi as a professional 3d animator this is actually really really sloppy of them and everyone should be pointing this out
first and foremost all the backgrounds and particle effects are pretty and shiny and nice and all but it doesn’t mean anything if your character animation isn’t up to snuff because you know that’s kinda what people go to see the movie for
second there are dozens and dozens of levels of quality control in the disney studios - i’ve seen shit a thousand times less noticeable than this get people torn apart during dailies by their instructors or their superiors
lemme tell you something when i was in school one time i had spent two weeks working out a piece where a guy jumps out of a filing cabinet and there was a four frame segment where the tip of his foot collided with the edge of the cabinet as he turned around
my instructors spent almost a full half an hour drilling me on it in front of the entire class because i was too lazy to go back and fix it
so no these guys have literally no excuse whatsoever they have the best and brightest in the business and all the money in the world to back it there is absolutely no reason for that kind of supreme laziness
WOW guys. Tumblr is SO intentionally determined to tear apart this movie even because of a small animation mistake. Well, I’m not an animator, but I’ve witnessed animation mistakes in other great movies You want an example?
This is from Rise of the Guardians, and there are two, TWO errors in this scene.
The first one is, Tooth is shorter than Jack in the movie, and when she comes to hug him, they’re both and the same level and she ISN’T FLYING.
Don’t believe me? Look at their height difference in the movie:
Second: look carefully at the two gifs. Tooth is hugging Jack using her two hands, but when Baby Tooth pops up and she breaks out from the embrace, during a second you can see her left arm was at the same place.
In this gif you can see it better:
And you can say anything about RIse of the Guardians but it is a lazy movie done by lazy animators.
God, tumblr, you really can’t let go of Frozen really? It’s okay wanting to point out one mistake, but then using it to tear it apart a work some REAL LIFE people spend their time working on, and for one error (because they are mortal people capable of some mistakes), it just makes you bullies. And I can feel it is this way because no one, NO ONE, said one word about the animation mistake(s) Rise of the Guardians did.
But I guess other certain movies, tv-shows and books can get a free-pass for their mistakes here, right?
Welcome to tumblr, everyone.
[gratuitous opinion in the tags that no one should read]
#people take shortcuts to get a result that looks good
#(or what their boss(es) want the result to look like)
#RotG could’ve had tooth and jack hug at their proper heights
#but that wouldn’t have been aesthetically pleasing with their actual 4-inch height difference
#it would’ve thrown off the framing of the scene
#the frozen animators could’ve had the braid move the way it should
#but as someone who had her hair long and in braids for years
#braids don’t move in a really elegant way
#and to give the animators credit
#they did try to hide it with her black sleeves on the black background
#so that means they knew what they were doing
#they also likely had more than one version of this part
#animation isn’t all that different from live-action in that there is a director who will change a scene if they don’t like the result
#I really should’ve added this directly to the post#because now I have 15 tags of rambling
#and I doubt I’m even all that qualified to ramble about it

this whole “OH MY GOD FROZEN IS COMPLETE SHIT BECAUSE BRAID AND THUMB” thing is making me REALLY hate Tumblr. if Pinterest were actually interesting, I’d probably abandon here for there.
I NEVER COMMENT ON THESE STUPID LONG POSTS BUT I HAVE TO SAY AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO DOESNT NOTICE ANYTHING WRONG?! II’m fairly certain the average movie goer wont notice these things since I can’t even see them even when you point them out. Are you all high? lol. GET OFF THE INTERNET YOU’VE BEEN ON IT TOO LONG
You’re not alone. I don’t see it either.
This is pretty much the only thing I’m going to reblog on this issue because I’m sick to death of hearing about it. It’s like when Frozen didn’t turn out to be the shit movie everyone predicted it was going to be (note to self: finish Really Long Write-up about how Frozen is basically the Disney Princess version of X-Men and a metaphor for queer people learning to accept themselves and how important it is for the friends and families of those people to love and accept them and make sure they know how loved and accepted they are BUT I DIGRESS), the nitpicking started because OH NO FROZEN MUST BE A SHIT MOVIE WE MUST MAKE SURE THAT IT’S A SHIT MOVIE SO THAT EVERYONE KNOWS IT’S A SHIT MOVIE EVEN THOUGH THE REASONS WE HAVE FOR SHITTING ON IT ARE ALSO PRESENT IN TANGLED and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and BRAVE and RISE OF THE GUARDIANS BUT WE LOVE THOSE SO THEY ARE NOT SHIT BUT FROZEN (which we haven’t even seen, oops) IS COMPLETE SHIT.
Like I agree that there are issues with the movie, but Christ on a cracker, come off it with the animation flubs! Guess what: in a two-hour movie with almost 200,000 frames, there are going to be errors! There are going to be flubs! There are going to be movements that are unnatural or awkward or involve some clipping or a raccoon disappearing! Get over it!

I’ve never been better. This is so nice. I wish it could be like this all the time.
This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present:
“Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.
