Part Three: The Snowman is Dead
What did I think of The Snowman? Eh, itís alright. I canít say I enjoyed it, but I canít say I hated it either. I think this isnít my kind of movie. Annabelleís Wish was more of a movie Iíd enjoy, which is ironic because from my critical point of view, The Snowman would easily be the movie Iíd recommend more, mostly because itís not that clichťd. Okay, you still had the obligatory Santa cameo, but other than that, itís less of a bother than Annabelleís Wish. The art style is simply gorgeous. Itís not like anything I have seen before, which puts it miles above Annabelleís Wish. The music is also a point higher than Annabelleís Wish, mostly because Randy Travis canít make me laugh like the singer for ďWalking In The AirĒ can. However, Annabelleís Wish trumps this in terms of telling a story. Yes, itís clichťd as all hell, but thereís a story. Here? Kid builds snowman, they have wacky adventures, snowman melts, the end! This sort of perplexes me, because despite my criticisms towards it, I enjoy Annabelleís Wish more than The Snowman. The Snowman is just simply eye candy for the kids and artistically inspired. Mind you, itís good eye candy, but itís the kind where if youíre bored and got nothing to do, this would be a good film to watch. Itís short, to the point, and has no actual plot or theme to shove down your throat. Just shut your brain off, pop some popcorn, and enjoy. Well, adios.
