At long last, it's here - the end of a debate between two dads to settle for good and all which princess movie was better. It's been a fun week and only one task remains: melting Gene's frozen heart. Here's our last chance to sway you to our side. Thanks for reading!
The final topic is here! Gene and I delve into the life lessons from these two films. Find out what takeaways we came up with!
Everybody needs a good sidekick. Pop on over my good buddy (and current nemesis) Gene's site to read our arguments on his blog, Let There Be Movies. Hope you enjoy this newest topic and definitely explore Gene's site while you're there. He writes a fantastic weekly column recapping the latest Walking Dead episode.
Annnnd we're back again.
Today's it all about the music - a topic I gather most of you have been waiting on.
Let's get at it!
My favorite topic of all: Villainy.
It's Mother Gothel vs. Hans, but you'll have to read our arguments on Gene's blog, Let There Be Movies. We've opted to split up the topics to encourage cross-readership.

Ah, love. Gene and I figured since this is what most Disney princess films hearken back to, we might as well start here. Let's get at it!
Well, folks, it's finally here - the debate no one asked for.
Film critic vs. Author.
Father vs. Father.
This week, Gene Gosewehr of Let There Be Movies and I go to war. Each day we'll debate a new topic, have at one another's arguments, and allow you readers to decide which of us wins. (Spoiler alert: Frozen fans - expect a frying pan to the head, waking you to the glory that is Tangled.)
Let's get at it!
In two days time, a debate kicks off the likes of which you will ne'er see again. But first, some background on the events leading up to this epic duel.
I have a daughter, which means that I have seen both Tangled and Frozen approximately 1,382,412 times. Some of you may recall a post I made nearly a year ago citing why Tangled is the superior film. Others found my argument so compelling that none dared challenge it for fear of the royal smack down laid upon them via a frying pan to the head.
Gene Gosewehr is a talented friend of mine who writes film reviews for Let There Be Movies. Being that Gene has daughters, we share a common fatherhood goal - to maintain our man pride whilst watching Disney princess movies. A noble crusade that generally requires us to appear happy throughout the films, (lest our daughters berate us), and, at times, join them in belting such ballads as 'Let It Go' and 'When Will My Life Begin'.
All that was fine and well until Gene crossed the line - "Tangled stinks, Aaron."
I dunno about you, but them's fighting words to me.
Anyone else remember those READ posters in your school library?
I do! Always hoped I'd end up on one...
(Aaron checks that one off the bucket list.)
Big thanks to the students and staff of Francis Parker for inviting me into their school this past December and creating this poster.
I love my dark wings!
