Once Upon A Time season 4 episode 3 review: Rocky Road

14 October 2014 12:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Once may be formulaic, but it's a winning formula, says Kylie. Here's her review of Rocky Road...

This review contains spoilers.

4.3 Rocky Road

This week’s episode takes the typical Once fare, groan-worthy moments and all, and turns it into a winning formula. It’s a fast-paced, streamlined offering that doesn’t linger in one place long enough for excess padding or melodrama. Rocky Road makes me think that Once doesn’t need a major shake-up to improve. Its flaws would be negligible if its overall execution were better, as it was this week.

That’s not to say that focusing on one character or issue is a bad thing, but in this case, jumping around works very well. Snow is trying to balance motherhood and her new job as mayor. Rumple is still actively lying to Belle about the dagger, but Hook knows his secret. Hook is having drama with Emma, »

Frozen targeted in $250 million plagiarism lawsuit

28 September 2014 4:26 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Frozen is being targeted in a $250 million (£154m) plagiarism lawsuit.

Peruvian writer Isabella Tanikumi claims that the Disney movie is closely based on her life, citing 18 instances in which the film steals from her memoirs, reports The Guardian.

Living My Truth and Yearnings of the Heart detail Tanikumi's experiences as a youngster living at the foot of the snow-covered Andes.

The memoirs feature two sisters who become closer after an earthquake strikes and causes the death of a loved one, as well as suitors named Hans and Cristoff.

One sister injures the other and hides herself away through shame, while one of the Frozen DVD covers is said to share similarities with the cover of the memoir.

It has previously been suggested that Frozen is based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale The Snow Queen.

Frozen earned more than $1 billion at the box office and is the highest-grossing animated movie of all time. »

Woman Sues Disney for Stealing 'Frozen' From Her Life

26 September 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Well, this is something of a stretch... A New Jersey-based author named Isabella Tanikumi has filed a lawsuit against Disney claiming that their animated blockbuster "Frozen" incorporated elements from her books, "Living My Truth" and "Yearning of My Heart," both of which are autobiographical. Please keep in mind that "Frozen" is adapted from the Hans Christian Andersen story "The Snow Queen" that was originally published in Denmark in 1844.

The lawsuit, detailed by Entertainment Weekly (via E!), was filed on September 21st and features 18 instances where "Frozen" supposedly mimics Tanikumi's work. She is suing for a whopping $250 million. These instances vary from the incredibly vague ("Younger Sister Falls in Love" and "Two Male Characters") to things that are both specific and totally insane ("Hands to the Sky With Sprinkles," something that she claims is an image from her books that is replicated on the DVD cover).

A Woman Is Suing Disney for $250 Million Claiming 'Frozen' Stole Her Life Story

25 September 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Uh, is there a real-life Olaf the talking snowman somewhere?!

Sing with us: Do you want to file a laaawsuit?

An author named Isabella TaniKumi has filed a $250 million suit against the Walt Disney Company saying that Frozen was not actually based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, The Snow Queen, but her 2010 autobiography about growing up in Peru.

Yes, this woman claims Frozen stole her life story.

This is crazy for two reasons: 1) The obvious, and 2) Did Isabella just see Frozen? How is she only getting around to it now? Is that even possible? The movie has literally been everywhere.

News: Find out about the Frozen ride coming to Disney World!

There have been discrepancies in the details, with some outlets saying the plagiarized book is eBook Yearnings of the Heart (the only title listed under Isabella’s name on Amazon) and others say it is Living My Truth under a pseudonym, L. Amy Gonzalez »

20 Iconic Scenes In Billion Dollar Movies

10 September 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

There’s no telling what, exactly, will allow a motion picture to cross the billion dollar gross mark – there’s no set formula or a pre-determined set of rules that can predict a movie’s success at the box office. It just happens. When a movie does successfully manage to cross the billion dollar line, though, it’s never anything but impressive – a billion dollars is a hell of a lot of money, and for an “entertainment” product to pull in that much cash… well, it qualifies said entertainment product as something of an unmitigated success.

Given the way that pretty much every single billion dollar movie has left its mark on popular culture on a global scale, then, we’ve decided to take a look through all of the flicks that managed to do so to bring you a list of the most iconic scenes contained within. »

In case you're wondering what caused a sudden spike in Frozen trivia this week, ABC aired a special called "The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic" Tuesday night that gave a legion of fans a look into the film's path to blockbuster success.

Disney Adapting ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ With ‘Frozen’ Director

5 August 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Once upon a time, Disney released an animated film called Frozen, a musical comedy (loosely) based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen; upon arriving in theaters, it performed well above studio expectations, breaking 1994′s The Lion King previous opening weekend record. If Disney’s long term goals for Frozen are loose for the time being, though, their short term plans for Jennifer Lee – who wrote the film’s script and co-directed it alongside Chris Buck – are beginning to crystallize.

In Lee’s case, Frozen has given her room to leverage her follow up project, which happens to be an adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s 1962 science fantasy novel, A Wrinkle in Time. (So sayeth Variety.) Reportedly, Lee has already stirred the interest of Disney executives with ...

ABC’s Once Upon a Time has filled the coveted role, the show’s version of Disney’s snow queen from last year’s animated mega-hit Frozen.

The character is loosely based on “The Snow Queen,” the Danish fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen. »

Japanese woman asks for divorce because husband doesn't like Frozen

3 June 2014 1:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It turns out not everybody wants to build a snowman.

A woman in Japan has asked her husband for a divorce because he admitted that he didn't like Frozen.

The wife, 29, became entranced by the Disney musical and made several trips to the cinema to catch the film without her 31-year-old other half.

He initially resisted her offers to come and see the musical, but realising she wouldn't let it go, he relented and came along to watch the box office hit.

At university the husband had studied Danish Literature, so the fact that Hans Christian Anderson's tale The Snow Queen served as inspiration for Frozen would suggest he'd embrace the film. Not so.

According to Japanese website Kikonsha no Hakaba (which ominously translates to 'The Gravesite of Married People'), he reviewed the film to his wife thusly: "It's an okay movie, I guess, but I didn't really care for it personally. »

'Once Upon a Time': 5 Reasons to Be Excited that 'Frozen' Has Come to Storybrooke

14 May 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

I'm not going to lie. I just watched Frozen last weekend, which was pretty ironic considering my city has been experiencing a wicked heatwave. Southern California could use a Queen Elsa, that's for sure. Shortly after I finally shook "Let it Go" from my head, I caught up with my long-time Disney love, ABC's Once Upon a Time and was happily shocked by the last few minutes of the season 3 finale. Maid Marian isn't the only Disney character Emma and Hook accidentally brought back. It looks like The Snow Queen (Aka Queen Elsa) has been released from Rumplestiltskin's vase and is making use of some long-overdue, icy powers. What's in store for Storybrooke now? »
