    It's still not 6TH BIGGEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME good, but it's fine for what it is and who it's really for.

    THIS MADE 1.2 BILLION DOLLARS????

    Well yeah... That's just the box office receipts too. In a day and age where no one buys albums, it was #1 on Billboard 200 for 13 weeks (well past 3 million sold at this point), the Blu-rays and DVD's are definitely doing amazingly, anything Frozen-related seems to completely overwhelm the most popular content on YouTube, family members tell me that everything related to Anna and Elsa at the Disney Store (in addition to everywhere else) sell out instantly, and any little cousin or friend's kids will look at you like you say you've committed a crime if you say you saw it once and didn't love it. (Personal experience.) We're still months away from the first Halloween that everyone decides to dress up like characters from it too.

    It's basically the biggest thing Disney could've ever hoped for. And unlike Cars (probably the only thing of recent years that comes close), they don't have to split the benefits with Pixar. Plus unlike Cars, Frozen's merchandise can market much older, and most importantly, to girls.

    Even if there isn't a sequel or any sort of TV spinoff (if this were the '90s, I think we'd already have an Olaf & Sven: Frozen Adventures animated series), it's not going away any time soon.

    So my cousin goes to Boston University is a highly praised cellist. He was was asked to play with the Boston Pops/Boston Symphony Orchestra this past weekend- they did a tribute piece from each decade from 1910-2010- and the only time there was an audible gasp of recognizance from the audience was the 2010 tribute (a Frozen song).

    For some reason I'm not surprised. Maybe it's because unlike most hugely popular recorded songs, people have heard so many covers and official alternative versions of "Let It Go" that their brains have been trained to musically recognize it in different forms more than usual.

    Oh, and now make that THE 5TH BIGGEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME.

    It might help to see that it is still sitting outside the top 100 when adjusted for ticket price inflation. This list has always made more sense to me.

    It does to me too, and I always peek at it when it comes up because I'm always blown away with just how much money Gone with the Wind made in freakin' 1939. When the average movie ticket price was 23 cents.

    Also, that something like Ben-Hur beats out stuff like Avatar, Return of the Jedi, and Phantom Menace. It's weird to think that people were that into that movie.

    Edit: I dunno why, but it strikes me as odd that most of Frozen's box office came from overseas. $800 mil. WTF?

    Oh for sure, and in the long run, I always look to the inflation chart to really gauge how big a ripple things might've really made culturally to older timeless blockbusters, roughly how many tickets were actually sold, etc... But in current terms, and where the movie-making climate (sorry, it feels impossible to escape temperature-related puns with this movie) goes in the moment with prognosticating both audience's tastes and understanding studios' instincts on the most face-value dollars thrown at them, the unadjusted numbers are always going to be telling. Frozen just happens to tell it more than most things in recent years. (The others? Disney's biggest Marvel acquisitions.)

    Thought this was decent. Terrific animation, enjoyed some of the different story beats, but for the most part this was insanely overhyped.
