Take the case of the hotly anticipated home video release of Frozen. Amazon was first to begin accepting pre-orders — even while the film was just debuting in theaters — but this, in essence, has become the norm for Amazon. It’s a given that the product will be released on Blu-ray eventually, so why not accept pre-orders? Only Amazon had also been taking pre-orders for a 3D version of the Blu-ray, one it had to subsequently remove and unceremoniously cancel all orders.

‘Cathartic,’ is how Idina Menzel describes performing the anthemic ‘Let It Go’ from Disney’s upcoming animated film, Frozen. With powerful lyrics scribed by Kristen Anderson-Lopez, Menzel’s soul-searching performance as Queen Elsa proverbially brings the house down at every screening. Thus it seems hard to believe that someone with a voice so strong and the raw emotion required to bring justice to these words can — at times — appear to be demure and not so self-assured.
