December 11,2019 | The Clarion Arts & Life Page 3 Poems from ENG 207 By Nia Davis Contributor PAW PAL Best pals since the age of six Sweet Diddy you were our fix Beautiful mutt determined to survive With strength and time, you thrived Going on 15 your still here We fear the end is near You’ve brought such joy into the home You’re the main key, you made this house a home Your memories will forever remain, because When you leave our hearts will never be the same If we could we would press reverse Your approaching end feels like a curse Your love healed when we didn’t know we were hurt Gave the courage to keep facing every day You were miss treated before you came to us, but Yet you still gave love away Here for a short time leaving behind permanent lessons On how to live life leaving a message A special spot in my heart Because you were always a blessing from the start The Why God sent his son to pay the price. Crucified to save our life. He took the punishment for our thoughtless acts and Sinful ways. When Jesus laid on that cross He forgave. Why is the church empty? When Jesus went to the grave. Why is the church empty? When Jesus rose again in three days. Why is the church empty? When Jesus holding in hand the keys to the end He was hung high and stretched wide The weight of the world depending on one life Such a Significant, Selfless, Sacrifice Sharing with us his amazing grace and eternal life 'Frozen 2' review ByAlyssa Hetherington Contributor “Frozen 2” has hit theatres and is taking the world by storm. The sequel is about Elsa and Anna learning about their past and moving forward in their lives while exploring new lands. The movie starts with Elsa hearing a voice calling her, which leaves her with the choice to find out who or what is calling her. With the help of magic, Elsa has to make the decision to follow the voice “Into the Unknown.’’ With her sister Anna and friends Kristotf, Sven and Olaf by her side, the gang begin their journey to find and figure out the past. A great part about “Frozen 2’’ is that the filmmakers aged all the key characters and gave them character growth. Instead of taking place a day or a week after the last film, they set the story three years after the last time we saw them. Each character also has a new wardrobe, like a real person, and has different outlooks on life now. The biggest character change was in Olaf, the talking snowman, who has now matured in the three years. He talks in a way that tells the audience that he is still learning about the world around him, but he is no longer a naive snowman who thinks everything is good. Even though he is growing older, the snowman still has the same goofy and lovable dialogue that made him iconic in the first movie. There are some new characters that join the “Frozen” franchise and bring in some great moments. My new favorite Disney animal sidekick is the salamander Bruni. This little blue amphibian’s quirky and spunky nature along with an appetite for snowflakes has made him a new Disney favorite. Another new character that brought many laughs with his great expressions and one-liners was Lieutenant Mattias, and even though he has little screen time, what he does and says is memorable. “Frozen 2” does a great job at connecting the two movies with constant nods to the first movie. The characters reference previous characters such as Hans, the whole plot of “Frozen” and memories of themselves from the first movie. There are Easter eggs scattered throughout the movie, like Elsa’s castle from the hit song “Let It Go” and Olaf becoming Elsa in their charades game. Disney likes hiding secrets so keep your eyes peeled. Unarguably the best part of the film was all the songs, especially the ones sung by Idina Menzel as Elsa. The songs “Into the Unknown” and “Show Yourself’ showcase the growth of Elsa and are easily the most catchy and moving parts of the film. A fun song that the adults will enjoy is the ’80s theme song that Kristoff sings in which he is confused about his love toward Anna, called “Lost in the Woods.” Although I enjoyed this movie for its amazing music, stunning graphics and beautiful message, the plot of the story can be hard to understand, especially for younger kids. Kids will enjoy the movie for its characters and songs, but adults will understand the story and enjoy it for being a story about personal growth. Also make sure you wait till the end of the movie to see the end credit scene with Olaf! ‘j-r i /* ft J - 1 i 4 ' ^uRCninmcat! ft / ; t r V4 ' I ■ 4^ V /j.l; A still from Disney’s ‘Frozen 2.”
