Frozen & Black Sails
As I sit here waiting for the arrival of pizza, watching "Black Sails" off the DVR, I thought I would take a few minutes to write. I really wanted to like Black Sails, but I am afraid it has to land somewhere in the middle - too much talking, not enough action. It might deliver in the end, but right now, it is on the bubble for me, at least as far as the shows I regularly watch.
Now, on the plus side, I went out today and saw "Frozen" over at Cupertino Square AMC. I have to say that is was truly excellent. It seems a little slow to me starting out, like it could not quite find its feet. Once they found it though it was an outstanding piece of work - the animation was amazing, the story was filled with interesting twists, and the songs were clever and funny and well executed. Definitely an excellent addition to the Disney canon.
