The sequel to Disney’s 2013 blockbuster, “Frozen,” not only leaves the audience with another great family movie, but another outstanding soundtrack. My personal favorites would be “Into the Unknown,” “Some Things Never Change,” and “Show Yourself.” “Frozen 2” felt like it hit the theaters way before Nov. 22 with all the plot predictions and gossip. With a second movie to continue...
