    Frozen II

    ★★★

    In the years following Frozen's release, it has kind of become a bit of a punchline. I'm sure the constant rotation of the song "Let it Go" has something to do with that. That being said, Frozen is a really good animated film with memorable characters, well-made songs and a strong theme of sisterhood.

They use their real names and often can be seen wearing clothes promoting their group. A misstep by Blomkamp.
