    Having just watched both Moana and Frozen for the first time this week I asked around the office which they felt was the better movie. Oddly enough there were differing opinions even though they were clearly wrong. I'm curious how the community feels about this though.

    The correct response is obviously Moana. I am not saying that the music in Frozen is bad, or that it was bad movie. But Moana was far more entertaining and overall as more enjoyable watch. If you disagree I encourage you to go watch both of them again and realize that you are wrong (as my wife did!).

    That one is obvious. Though Moana is still formulaic and it relies on making fun of other Disney movies to add spice, it is clearly the better movie overall.
    My 2 and 4 year old also agree.

    I've seen both about 100 times. (have a 5 year old daughter) I personally liked Moana better. Once she gets home from school I'll edit post to add which one she likes best : )

    Edit: Daughter likes both the same!

    Moana is a better movie, but it will never do as well as Frozen. Frozen had some weird plot holes, whereas Moana was more adventure and the characters clearly developed along the way.

    Just asked my 8 y/o boy and he said Moana is the best without any doubt. I asked him why and he said "Frozen is for girls". I have not seen Moana but I did enjoy Frozen so it looks like I need to watch it...

    I still find Tangled as the most interesting so far.

    Sad thing is this post is getting more view/discussion than 99% of the things posted here recently.

    The scene where the Grandmother dies is a powerful moment in the movie. The gust of wind leading to the appearance of the Spirit Ray was beautifully choreographed. The scene with the spirit boats was also a great point of the story.

    Yeah, hard to beat those classic airheads. “Love at first sight, married the next available moment” is not a good life lesson. The direction Disney seems to be taking now are more about substance than the played out ‘princess’ model of yesteryear.

    If given the choice, would you choose to be the princess, the hero or the villain? You could be weak, self righteous or unambiguously hated in classic Disney with such terms. Extremely black and white in the story structure.

    Moana.
    Better music.

    Frozen has a better world, and snow. I love snow. But Moana has a better story and music. The story is also much better. Haven't felt emotions in a straight up Disney film as much as Moana (not counting Disney Pixar).

    For those who don't know the scene I spoke of earlier or whom haven't seen the movie.

    Oh yes!

    Though I have to vote for Frozen for a song about fractals and the work they put into runic texts:)
