January 5, 2014 (Day 5 of the 365 Movies in 365 Days Challenge)

Short but sweet post tonight. I know the year is young, but I have not missed a day yet without watching at least one movie. Today was a movie I streamed from Netflix.

Disney recently released a movie into the theaters called Frozen. The movie is loosely based on the fairy tale The Snow Queen. Actually, there are few elements between the two stories which are even close. I guess you can technically say Frozen was developed after Disney Animation could not find a proper adaptation of The Snow Queen for their liking.

Well, a Russian animation studio did manage to put an animated adaptation together. And released their version called Snow Queen. This version is closer to the fairy tale than Frozen is. But, Snow Queen is not as good as Frozen either. However, the movie is just fine for what it is. I guess they wanted to either beat Disney to the punch or ride Disney's coattails with Frozen.

And for those wondering, the movie is in English, not Russian.

Anyway, movie number 7 for the year is:

Snow Queen
