Backup Frozen (2013) Thanksgiving Blu-ray for wathing freely

Description: This is a thorough hands-on review on the new realeased "Frozen (2013)" movie at Thanksgiving 2013. And give you some tips on how to backup Blu-ray/DVD to external hard drive, or watch on your portable devices.

Thanksgiving 2013 is coming, after getting your fill of turkey, stuffing, or whatever it is you feast on come Thanksgiving, why not settle in with one Thanksgiving-released film and enjoy it with your family and friends? Now let's see the popular "Frozen (2013)", a 2013 American computer animated epic musical fantasy-comedy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures

Part I: Frozen, 2013. Movie Reviews

Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee.

Featuring the voice talents of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, Ciaran Hinds, Alan Tudyk, Chris Williams, and Jack Whitehall.


Fearless optimist Anna teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna's sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.

It only seems apt that now Disney has made a considerable amount from their Princesses brand, the most recent animated “classic” Frozen depicts the story of not one, but two princesses. Loosely based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale The Snow Queen, Frozen harks back to a story that sits neatly alongside Tangled and Brave, as it tries to warm-up the classic, cold fairy tale with intriguing, but not ground-breaking, results.

Anna (Kristin Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel) are sisters and the Princesses of Arendelle. Elsa is destined to become Queen one day, while Anna has had to live her life watching Elsa from afar. Anna has been protected from the dangers of Elsa’s ice and snow skills following a close-call with death when both girls were young. After a brief prologue, the coronation of the new Queen is soon upon us and Anna meets the man of her dreams. But dreams are shattered when Elsa’s ice-powers are unleashed and revealed to all, forcing her to run away to isolate herself from the world - leaving Arendelle as a glistening, frozen city. Anna decides to find Elsa, and bring her back to Arendelle. With the support of mountain man Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and the snowman Olaf (Josh Gad), we set-off into the white plains and trudge through the snow to see if Anna can convince her sister to return…

Disney has had their eyes on this story for many years. Dating back to 1943, Walt Disney himself considered animating sequences from The Snow Queen to support a biography on Hans Christian Andersen. Passed from animators and producers since the 1990s, it was only after the success ofTangled that Disney decided to dream up the idea in a different manner. This time, they focussed their attention on two sisters at the centre of the story – while the Snow Queen is not a villain but human and gentle, despite her dangerous powers.

These crucial changes to the story are what make Frozen innovative with a sibling story that will surely resonate with children. A context of snowscapes and detailed, twinkling snowflakes make the 3D animation worthwhile as snow falls in the cinema and sharp, ice shards jut out of the screen. The even film begins with a chanting chorus-number that harks back to The Lion King while the lead track, Let it Go, is catchy and likeable.

But inevitably, Disney has to include conventions that together become the “animation-formula”. Like the gargoyles in The Hunchback of Notre Dame or Mushu in Mulan, Olaf the snowman is brash and in-yer-face. His I’m-stupid-but-not-really humour becomes likable and his lack of knowledge of the sun is deeply tragic – though comedic. Alas, while one wacky character is effective, the snow-monster created to defend the Snow Queen is out of place (begging the question that, if the Snow Queen can create snow-monsters, she can surely create many more to stop the attack on her castle).

Though flawed, Frozen does seem to break the icy-mould with a finale that ignores convention (despite conventional male-female dynamics as Anna ultimately needs Kristoff - the big, brute of a man - to help her succeed). These final moments redeem any minor qualms and reveal that Disney is primarily interested in thoughtful storytelling. Disney are clearly adapting fairy tales with the intention of making something that lasts longer than the throwaway stories of Bolt and Brother Bear - and Frozen will have longevity. But, Frozen does slip and we are still a long way from the quality of Beauty and the Beast and the Princesses that defined the brand itself.

Part II: How to Backup and Play "Frozen (2013)" on your smartphones or tables?

In case that you have downloaded the "
Frozen (2013) " Blu-ray movie, it is known that the Blu-ray Disc is fragile and any scratch may lead to the impossibility of playback. Most people suffer the pain of destroying your favorite movie by scratching the disc. Maybe your kids are a bit too rough with it, maybe your disc player decides to chew on it or maybe you are just unlucky. Such as: 

"I have many bluray discs and Sometimes my kids have damaged them. So I want to keep copy on the kids movies before I let them use them"

"I want to make a digital version of my large Blu-ray collection. In an effort to safe my original discs from being ruined, i'm too late for a few."

In this case, it is possible to buy Blu-ray or DVD movies as digital downloads to avoid discs completely, but you will be disappointed that movie downloads don’t match the picture quality of Blu-ray discs. So looking for third-party software to backup Blu-ray discs without sacrificing the picture quality seems to the best choice for you. And for those who rent lots of movie of discs, it is also a great way to copy the discs for future watching.

Frankly, I tried several softwares and I can tell you that NO ONE comes even close to the simpleness and great quality that the proram deliver. The time it takes to convert in this software is almost half that in other. Now just download it and follow the step-by-step guide to get your Blu-ray, DVD movies and 1080/720p videos into Google/LG Nexus  5 for playing without problems.

Tip: By click "settings" button, you can easily adjust the output parameters of the video. Remember the file size is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

To get 1080p resolution playback on Google Nexus 5, you can set output size at “1280*720” or “1920*1080”. According to my experience, for watching Blu-ray/DVDs and videos on the Nexus 5, 720p with 1500kbps~2000kbps (depending on the movie length) is just all right.

Step 2. Select output format. You can easily find the optimized profiles for Nexus 5 under "Android > Google Nexus 4 H.264 Video(*.mp4)" which is specially designed for Google/LG Nexus  5.

Or you can choose a profile for general Android devices which is compatible with Google/LG Nexus 5 as well.

Rip and Store Blu-ray movies to external hard drive for Roku 3

If you are wondering how to backup Blu-ray movies to external hard drive for streaming to Roku 3, this article shows you exactly how to make it work.

For anyone new to the Roku world, I would recommend the Roku 3 over any other previous models mainly on it being so much faster to operate. The streaming superstar. With up to 1080p HD video and extended-range, dual-band wireless performance, the Roku 3 takes streaming to the next level. You can freely enjoy your own media on Roku 3.

Now I want to rip and store movies on an external hard drive and then plug my external hard drive in my Roku 3 and use Roksbox app. So Google ”Best Blu-ray Ripping Software” to backup my Blu-ray movies to external hard drive for Roku 3 playback initially. Then I find these links from google:

I tried MakeMKV but had issues. Had been using Leawo that was a Giveaway of the Day several months back. Lost the free license when upgraded from Win7 to Win 8. Preliminary tests with PavTube went smoothly. With this top Blu-ray to MKV Converter - Pavtube ByteCopy, I can easily lossless copy your Blu-ray collections to MKV with all subtitles and original audio track for future usage like disc burning. Meanwhile, this app equips with all features other BD ripping tools do so that I can rip your BD/DVD movies to any other video and audio format you like and do simple video editing here. (Top Blu-ray Copying & Ripping Review)

To help others who has the similar issures with preparing Blu-ray videos for playback on Roku 3? Here I will share a workaround to backup Blu-ray to MKV on external hard drive.

Step 1. Load Blu-ray movie.

Get ready to insert your Blu-ray disc to disc drive, click this "Load Disc" button to browser to disc drive and import the disc. Or you could load BD folder and BD ISO from computer hard drive to this best Blu-ray to MKV Converter.

Step 2. Choose suitable output format.

Pavtubr ByteCopy offers an special category for users who would like to keep multiple audio tracks and subtitles in saved Lossless MKV file. Just select Multi-track Video > Lossless/encoded Multi-track MKV(*.MKV) for output. In this way the original audio tracks are streamed without transcoding from source BD Disc to saved MKV file.

Step 3. Adjust profile presets (Optional).

You are allowed to customize profile presets as you like, you could remove unwanted audio track in Audio tab under Settings menu, and uncheck subtitles you do not need in Subtitles tab.

Step 4. Start ripping.

Save all your settings, and back to ByteCopy main interface, hit the "Convert" button to start backuping Blu-ray movies to external hard drive. When the lossless backup completes, you would get a single large MKV file saved in output file destination. And you could stream copied  MKV movie to your Roku 3 for watching.
