but disney movies are the worst

Why lgbt people are mad about Le Fou in case it wasn’t obvious
  • The first gay Disney character is literally named The Fool
  • He’s unrequitedly in love with a straight man
  • A straight man who bullies and abuses him
  • Le Fou will 99% likely NOT get a happy ending
  • He’s being played by someone known to be straight
  • His sexuality is basically a joke
  • His sexuality is likely to be the butt of a joke the entire movie
  • We already know the character will be the butt of the joke even if his sexuality itself isn’t
  • His entire role in the movie is to be evil and stupid comic relief and boost Gaston’s self-esteem 
  • He’s described as “confused” 
  • Queercoding villains and Disney go together like peanut butter and jelly 
  • Disney is patting itself on the back for all of this
  • His character description is stereotypical
  • Le Fou being gay for Gaston is already something of a cultural joke
  • He’s barely in the movie
  • He’s the only gay person in a love story, he will end up alone and evil
  • People have been saying how you could improve the story by making it gay for years and of all the ideas this is the worst possible option for picking a gay character
  • We coulda had lesbian Beast
  • Kids will have this as their first gay Disney character
  • For some kids this will be their first gay character period
  • It will be their ONLY gay Disney character
  • They chose to make a shot for shot remake of the animated movie with the most whitebread actors and the only thing they want to change up is making the evil fool gay
  • Disney could get away with any kind of lgbt character because they are a monolith yet they choose this
20 Behind-The-Scenes Facts About Pirates Of The Caribbean.

1. During the filming of On Stranger Tides, Johnny Depp spent over $60,000 out of his own pocket to buy waterproof jackets for 500 crew members to protect them from the cold, wet weather. 

2. While filming in London in October 2010, Johnny Depp received a letter from a local 9-year old schoolgirl, telling him her classmates needed help to ‘mutiny’ against her teachers. He turned up with almost no warning at the school in full Sparrow outfit, but advised against mutiny. 

3. In Curse Of The Black Pearl, Johnny Depp improvised many of his lines, including the notorious, “Bring me that horizon,” and Jack Sparrow’s catch phrase, “Savvy?" 

4. Depp and Verbinski have a funny way of describing Jack running away from danger. They both compared it to a “lizard running on water.” Looking back at pirates of the caribbean, we can totally see where they’re coming from.

5. The cast and crew walked away from filming with tons of “treasure.” When production wrapped, many of the people who worked on the film (including Johnny Depp) picked props out from the treasure cave to take home. According to Verbinski, not a single one of the cursed coins was left behind.

6. Geoffrey Rush was afraid that people wouldn’t notice him on screen when he and Keira Knightley were in the same scene. He came up with a solution, however. He thought that viewers watched films the same way they read books - from left to right - and thus, tried to be on the left side of the shot as much as possible so that people would notice him before they noticed Keira. 

7. Robert De Niro was originally offered the role of Captain Jack Sparrow. However, he turned down the role because he thought that the film would do poorly in box offices. 

8. Keira Knightley was only 17 years old when they started shooting the first Pirates Of The Caribbean. Because she was a minor, her mother had to accompany her to all of the shooting locations. 

9. Johnny Depp’s character, Captain Jack, is portrayed as having gold teeth in the film. The gold teeth were actually Depp’s idea, but he predicted that executives would want fewer gold teeth than he wanted. So Depp told his dentist to implant extra gold teeth as a bargaining tool. After negotiations with the film executives, Sparrow’s final number of gold teeth in the film was what Depp had envisioned all along. 

10. If you pay attention throughout The Curse Of The Black Pearl, there is a scab on Jack Sparrow’s chin that gradually gets bigger and bigger. Many thought that it was a mistake, but Depp revealed later that his was a prank he and his makeup artist had thought of together. 

11. Clothing and smears of charcoal were used to conceal Johnny Depp’s numerous tattoos. The "Jack Sparrow” tattoo on his arm in the movie is a fake, but he actually got a real replica after finishing the film, in honor of his son Jack. 

12. Originally, Johnny Depp wanted Jack Sparrow to have no nose and be afraid of silly things like pepper and the common cold. Disney rejected the idea.

 13. Jack Sparrow is known for his outrageous face makeup, but he didn’t start with that look. While filming in a cave, excessive makeup was added to all of the characters so they wouldn’t looked washed out on film. When the crew realised how cool the makeup looked on Johnny Depp, they continued to use it on him for the rest of the movie. 

14. The moment when Elizabeth kissed Jack Sparrow in Dead Man’s Chest was purposefully cut out of Orlando Bloom’s script so that the cameras could get a genuine, shocked reaction from him. 

15. The fourth installation, On Stranger Tides, was the most expensive film ever made at the time, not adjusted for inflation. The budget ran to $300,000,000. That’s more than the budget of all three Lord Of The Rings films combined.

16. Johnny Depp based his performance on Keith Richards because he thought that pirates were just 18th century versions of rockstars. 

17. The names of the three main characters are all related to birds: Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth Swann, and William Turner, who was a famous ornithologist. 

18. The scene where Orlando Bloom impersonates Johnny Depp’s performance was devised by Bloom who asked producer Jerry Bruckheimer if he could put it into the movie. 

19. According to the screenwriters’ commentary on the DVD, Will Turner is actually the best swordsman in the film, Barbossa and Commodore Norrington are evenly matched, and Jack Sparrow is the worst. 

20. During filming of On Stranger Tides in London a 'Jack Sparrow’ impersonator just walked onto the set. The guards did not think to ask for any ID as he looked so much like the character.

keith: …you okay? 

pidge: NO, keith, i am NOT okay! mal and evie from the disney channel original movie descendants, and descendants 2, were so OBVIOUSLY gay, that the fact that they didn’t start dating or AT LEAST kiss by the end of the franchise is bad writing and best and fucking homophobic at worst. they held hands, keith! they held hands. they got gal pal-ed and i will never forgive disney for it.

Disney films that are *actually* underrated

Treasure Plant

If you already know me, you could probably guess that this would be on the list considering I never shut up about it.

This film flopped at the box office, but I’m honestly not sure why? It has absolutely gorgeous animation. Like, they could have gone with a palette of grays and blues like most scifi films do, but Treasure Planet actually has a large color palette, especially when it comes to the scenery. It shows off all the beautiful colors of space instead of making everything chrome against a dark backdrop. There are likable characters, including a an anti-hero, disabled pirate, a female Naval Captain that’s a total no-nonsense badass, and a sulky teenager. Arguably one of the darkest films Disney has done in the last twenty years. Disabled main character with only one eye, one arm, and one leg. Literally all of the character designs are gorgeous. The plot is a little boring at times, but it’s fairly easy to get lost in the world that’s been created.

Plus, we get visuals like this!

Brother Bear

Brother Bear was another box office flop but this one also had rather negative reviews. The early 2000′s was not kind to Disney animation. 

Yes, it does have a transformation plot, which I know is kind of iffy depending on the person, but overall it’s a great film. The music is amazing, bless Phil Collins signing onto another Disney project. The characters are great, I don’t think there were any I didn’t like except maybe the moose (because as an adult I don’t find them as funny as I did as a child, but I don’t really dislike them either). The relationship between the brothers was amazingly done. Usually when people want to talk about animated sibling relationships, they mention Lilo and Stitch, which is also great, but I really like how the brothers interact in Brother bear. They’re all closer in age (which is like my sister and me, so I can connect with it more), and I think that worked well when they added in the anger and grief and self-blame in the story.

Atlantis: The Lost Empire

There’s not really much I can say about this one, because truthfully I’ve only seen it a handful of times. Something about it kind of freaked me out as a child (I think it was that giant leviathan creature that attacked their submarine thing????), and I only recently found my old VHS player and haven’t had the time to watch it again.

Atlantis has it all. A beautiful world. Well-rounded, interesting characters. A romance that didn’t feel ridiculously forced. The voice talents of Michael J. Fox, Cree Summer, and Leonard Nimoy. A balances of a more adult plotline, while still retaining a kid friendly atmosphere.

Unfortunately, it does lack some coherency in the plot, and because of it’s fast-paced nature, there isn’t a lot of time for character development. The creators also borrowed a lot of elements from the Ghibli film castle in the Sky, but ultimately it’s still a great film visually speaking.

(PS: it was hard to pick a screencap that shows how visually stunning this film is. So much blue.)

The Black Cauldron

Honestly, The Black Cauldron is one of my favorite Disney films, but I can recognize that it has a lot of problems story wise. As in, they tried to stick the contents of two full length novels into an 80 minute film. Yeah, it didn’t work. The characters are interesting, albeit under-developed, visually it’s very beautiful, and it has just the right amount of creepy to give 5 year old me nightmares as a child (the Horned King was a brilliant concept). The author of the book series the Chronicles of Prydain, which the film is based on, found the film enjoyable on its own, but admitted it didn’t follow the books well. It was also another box office flop, making $21.3 million in revenue, which was less than half of the budget to make the film. This is the film that Disney pretends they didn’t make and is frequently referred to as the “worst Disney film” however we all know that that right belongs to films like Home on the Range, Chicken Little, and Mars Needs Moms.

There is speculation that Disney has plans to make a live action series based on the original books, so fingers crossed!

Robin Hood

It’s underrated, but I can kind of tell why. Everyone already knows the story of Robin Hood, because there’s at least ten different films and TV series about the guy. He’s been on OUaT, and there was a parody movie with Cary Elwes!

The animation is, decent, but not great, but the budged was only 5 million, so??? Meaning that a lot of the characters action were redrawn from previous films such as The Jungle Book and Aristocats. However, this was pretty common in old Disney films because the animators were paid for shit and it’s not plagiarism if you’re ripping off yourself. It is a little sloppy though.

Either way, it’s still a decent film. The songs were fun and had a delightfully folk sound to them, if you’re into that! The characters are pretty cute, the story is straight forward, and there’s not actually anything to really dislike about the film. It’s just a silly comedy that has it’s ups and downs.

Dinosaur

I don’t even know what to say about this film other than it’s gorgeous and no one ever talks about it. Like, this is the first true Disney film that relies entirely on CGI. No Pixar involvement. Just Disney and CGI. This is the most successful film of 2000 and I’ve never heard people talk about it even though it has great characters, an interesting story, and great visuals.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

While I personally don’t believe Hunchback is all that underrated (I usually see it in just about every top 10 or 20 list), it’s still a great film that deserves more praise than it gets.

Hunchback is beautiful, inspiring, dark, has excellent morals, amazing characters amazing music.It’s basically the complete package of everything you could want in a Disney film and it’s enjoyable for all ages.

The only thing I didn’t like about this film was the gargoyles and it’s kind of implied that they’re more like imaginary friends instead of real creatures, so they get a pass.

acegermwarfare  asked:

Have you ever seen Home on the Range? I know that's it's widely regarded as being Disney's worst theatrically released animated film, but I know next to nothing about it besides some of the voice actors.

i honestly enjoyed the cow designs, it was 3 female characters with very different and not sexy body types, the background art is really good too

thats all the good things i have to say and i also spilled acetone and ruined my keyboard when i watched it so fuck that movie

🦋 We’ve had this tradition as besties to have a sleepover once a year but this year….it feels different…were your pajamas always this cute??…did I always have butterflies???

💌 requested by @imshalida // 700 words // fluff

Jungkook can’t ignore it. The butterflies are back. They clutter his stomach, they clog his chest, and he wishes they would just let him sleep.

But it’s three in the morning, and he’s lying awake, and lying to himself that he isn’t in love with you.

Squashed beside you in the single bed you had to share, because, as you put it ‘we’ve been doing this for eight years, Jungkook, we can’t break tradition now’, there’s no way Jungkook’s sleeping with this raucous being raised inside him – the main perpetrator: his heat, a traitor when it comes to keeping his feelings quiet.

This wasn’t meant to happen. Like you said: ‘You’ve been doing this for eight years.’ The stars and moon know that isn’t the first time he’s laid beside you, body heat melding beneath the blankets. Normally, he’d fall to dreaming as soon as his head hit the pillow, swallowed up by your warmth, lulled by your breathing – at peace, knowing you were safe and sound beside him. So why have the butterflies unsettled from their slumber to barge about in his bloodstream? Why now? Hmm? Why now?

With all these questions grinding through his brain, he can’t rest, can’t shut his eyes. As you move in your sleep, foot brushing his leg and setting off alarm bells in his head, he begins to wonder if it’s possible to die from an imploding heart. At least then he could rest in peace.

Death won’t come though. Not yet. Even when you’re sound asleep, you’re determined to keep Jungkook’s heart beating, and beating fast, as, sighing, you shift again, and with a ruffling of blankets your arm falls across his chest. Which disturbs the butterflies. They flutter up to Jungkook’s throat. Maybe if he just said it, they’d leave him alone. If he just whispered it to the dark and night – it crawls to his tongue, ready to leap off into the abyss where it can never be taken back. ‘I love you’. ‘I love you’. You’re asleep. You’ll never hear it. Just say it. Deep breath. And-

You interrupt him with a groan and a murmur, and the moment drifts away. Of course, your habit of sleep talking springs up at the worst time. Jungkook can hear your lips moving in the dark, just an inch from his ear, hear the wet snap as they open and close, barely audible words spilling out.

This is a good distraction for him; it gets him out of his own love-panicked mind, and reminds him that you’re still his best friend – the one he’s shared eight sleepovers with, who he’s binge watched Disney movies with, whose vomit he’s helped clean when you gorged on too many chocolate buttons, who he’s sneaked out of the house with at two thirty AM to try and buy beer using your older sister’s ID. You’re not an untouchable, cast-in-gold angel and Jungkook shouldn’t be uncomfortable or stricken any time your skin connects with his. No. You’re just his best friend, with cute butterfly pyjamas and drool on your chin. The best friend he loves. 

But no matter how much he loves you, he isn’t going to let this moment pass by. With a smile, he reaches out a hand from the duvet, feeling at the bedside table for his phone, ready for blackmailing. The white light from the screen blinds him for a second before he opens the voice recording app, just in time to capture you mumbling the words:

“Jungkook. I love you.”

Jungkook feels hot and cold at once. He needs to take a deep breath and remind himself that you’re asleep, that it means nothing. Still, as his phone repeats the snippet of your voice: “Jungkook. I love you. Jungkook. I love you.” he can’t stop grinning.

“I love you too,” he whispers.

In the dark, he doesn’t see you smile.

It’s been a few days since Virgil has been turned into a child, and he was definitely proving to be a difficult one. Especially considering he still had some of his normal habits. Like sitting on things that are definitely not chairs, or couches. At first it was alarming as the sides had trouble finding him at times, but now he’s turned it into some sort of game. It was basically an unofficial hide & seek, and whatever side finds him finds him first gets cuddles for as long as they want. Normal, adult Virgil would hate himself for that, at least that’s what he’d tell himself, but child Virgil’s innocence had fully taken over. Of course he still had anxiety, as he was still Thomas’ anxiety, but again his innocence has started to dominate his mindset.

So, now Virgil was sitting inside one of the kitchen counter’s cabinets. It was a little cramped, and probably filled with dangerous things, but strangely kind of cozy. If one of the sides didn’t find him soon he’d probably doze off. Which is what he normally did when sitting somewhere strange so hey he wasn’t really complaining.

A few minutes later he started to do just that, but jolted awake when he heard his name being called.

“Ohh, Viiiirrrgggiiilll! Come out come out wherever you are, little prince!”

That was definitely Princey. Virgil tried to stifle his giggles so he wouldn’t give away his spot, but to no avail. He heard Roman suddenly stop in front of the cabinet he was in, and froze. He was definitely caught.

After a moment Roman walked away, and Virgil sighed in relief.

Apparently he was too loud because now the door was open, and Roman was smirking at him.

“Aha! There you are. This is an interesting spot to sit I must admit. Is it comfortable?”

Virgil giggled, and nodded. Roman chuckled, and held his arms out.

“Well, sorry to say Verge, but you should probably get out. Comfortable doesn’t always mean safe.”

Virgil pouted, but allowed Roman to take him out.

“Besides a certain little prince owes me some cuddles!”

Roman tickled Virgil as he said this earning him some adorable, and loud giggles.

Once Roman relinquished his torture Virgil pouted, and glared at him.

“You’re the worst, Pwincey.”

Roman laughed, and carried him into the common room where the others were.

Patton pouted as soon as he saw them.

“Oh, no fair! Did you find him in one of his weird sitting spots?!”

Roman smirked, and nodded as he sat on the recliner placing Virgil into his lap.

“I’m gonna find him next time! You’ll see!”

Roman chuckled as he switched on a Disney movie.

“Sure, Patt. You do that.”

Next time Patton did not do that. This time it was Logan that found him.

Thomas had summoned the sides to confront an issue he’s been having, but Virgil didn’t show up. The three elder sides exchanged worried glances, and Thomas was now more confused than ever.

“Okay, something’s definitely going on with Virgil. I-I’ve been scared of the most childish things lately! I mean I know some of my fears were childish already, but I mean monsters under my bed? My parents being mad at me? Getting in trouble??? What is happening to me? Where is Anxiety??”

Logan sighed, and nodded to the other two sides before turning to Thomas.

“I.. will go get him. It was my turn to watch him anyway.”

Without another word Logan sunk back down to the mindscape leaving Thomas, if possible, even more confused.

“W-Watch him??? What does that mean? Why would you guys need to watch him?”

Patton bit his lip nervously, and turned to Roman hoping he would take over. Roman sighed, and started to explain everything that had happened.

Meanwhile in the mindscape Logan could not for the life of him find Virgil.

“Anxiety now is not the time to play this game! Get off of wherever you are sitting, and come with me! Thomas needs to see you!”

Logan searched all the usual places Virgil sat, but he wasn’t anywhere to be found. So, Logan decided to check their rooms. He started with Patton’s. Nothing. Then Roman’s. Nope. He moved on to his own room, deciding to check Virgil’s last.

Once he got to his room he noticed a figure behind his window curtains. Panicking he rushed over, and opened the curtains to reveal an equally panicked Virgil sitting on the ledge of the slightly opened window. Logan quickly grabbed Virgil, and pulled him off. Virgil clung to him for dear life, and cried into his chest.

“Virgil Sanders! We told you that window ledges are off limits!”

Why Roman insisted on creating an actual outside world, and height to their “house” was beyond him. He knew it would prove to be an incredibly stupid decision at some point. This potential danger was not worth the realism.

“Virgil, the window was open, and that stupid prince made it so that falling would actually have consequences whereas normally it wouldn’t for us. Oh what am I saying? Your child brain isn’t going to understand all of that nonsense. Just.. don’t do that again. Please. I nearly had a heart attack.”

Virgil pulled away from Logan’s embrace just enough to look at him, and pouted.

“I’m sowwy, Lo.”

Logan’s heart, and anger, melted. He sighed, and held onto Virgil a little tighter.

“It’s.. quite alright, Virgil. Just please don’t do it again. Also do not go into our rooms if we are not with you.”

Virgil nodded, and nuzzled his face into Logan’s neck.

“Now, come on. We need to go see Thomas.”

Logan started to sink down, but stopped when he heard Virgil whimper.

“What, Virgil?”

“Don wanna see Thomas. He gonna be upset.”

Logan sighed, and sat on his couch still holding onto Virgil.

“Yes, he will be a little upset, but not with you. None of this is your fault. Okay?”

“It’s Pwincey’s fault?”

Logan chuckled, and ruffled Virgil’s hair.

“He is partially to blame, yes, but let’s not play that silly game. It doesn’t really matter whose at fault. Okay?”

Virgil giggled, and nodded.

“Alright, well, here goes nothing.”

Logan stood up, and sunk down to Thomas’ apartment.

Once they popped up, Thomas stared at them in shock, even though Roman just told him everything. Logan glared at the aforementioned side.

“Remind me again why you thought it was a good idea to create a realistic outside world, and height to our “house” or whatever you wish to call it in the mindscape? Virgil was sitting on a window ledge. He could have fallen, and gotten seriously injured.“

Patton gasped, and gave Logan & Virgil a stern look.

"Logan! You were supposed to be watching him! Virgil! You know not to sit on window ledges!”

Thomas looked between his sides with bewilderment then went back to staring at Virgil with wonder.

“So, Roman wasn’t lying..”

“Hey!”

Thomas laughed, and shook his head.

“Sorry, Princey, but you represent my dramatic, creative, passion for acting side. You could have easily been telling me a made up story.”

Roman hummed, and shrugged.

“I suppose you have a point, but honestly why would I lie about such a thing as… this!”

Roman gestured dramatically to the tiny Virgil in Logan’s arms. Thomas sighed, and looked at them again.

“Touché. Well, okay then. How do we fix this? I mean don’t get me wrong, baby Virgil is freakin’ adorable, but I don’t think we can keep him this way. That’d just lead to a lot of messes I don’t wanna get into. Besides I already miss my little embodiment of teenage angst.”

Virgil glared at Thomas, and stuck his tongue out. Thomas laughed, and ruffled his hair as he cooed. Virgil pouted, and whined as he tried to bat his hand away.

“Worry not, Thomas! I am trying to find a way to bring our Sunshine back!”

Virgil turned to glare at Roman, and Roman stuck his tongue out at him for a change. Virgil pouted, and returned to curling up to Logan.

Thomas nodded at Roman.

“Okay, good. Just let me know when you do.”

Roman bowed, and started to sink back down.

“Whoa, whoa. No one’s leaving yet. We need to figure out how to deal with things without my normal anxiety.”

Virgil huffed in annoyance, and made grabby hands for Thomas. Everyone looked at him a little shocked, but Logan quickly handed him over. Thomas held him close, but not close enough that he couldn’t look at him.

“Uhh.. What’s up, Verge?”

“I.. I can kinda still think, a-and talk like my n-normal self. I-It’s hard, but I can. I have to so I can do my job of pr-protecting you.”

Thomas tried really hard to stifle his laughter, but oh god that was hilariously adorable.

“Verge, buddy. I think we need to protect you more than you need to protect me right now. You’re so.. small, and vulnerable.”

Virgil glared at Thomas, and grumbled something under his breath.

“What was that, Verge?”

“Nuffin. Shut up.”

“So pure, and cute. My goodness.”

Virgil had enough of this. He tried to squirm out of Thomas’ hold. Thomas gave the others a look like, “Uh, help. Tiny, grumpy child is trying to leave. What do I do?”

Roman chuckled, and motioned for Thomas to let him down.

“You can let him go.”

Thomas reluctantly let Virgil down, and watched as he waddled over to his coffee table then climbed up. He sat on the middle of it, and glared at everyone. Patton squealed, and pointed at him excitedly.

“I found him! I win! I get cuddles now! Haha!”

Patton rushed over to him, and scooped him up. Virgil groaned, and tried to squirm away.

“Daaaddd! Noooo!”

Patton giggled, and held Virgil close.

“Sorry, kiddo! You know the rules!”

Virgil grumbled some more, but happily curled up to Patton.

Thomas looked at the other two in confusion.

“What.. was that?”

Logan chuckled, and adjusted his glasses.

“You remember how Virgil likes to sit on surfaces that aren’t meant to be sat on? Usually because he is overwhelmed, but sometimes just because?”

Thomas nodded so Logan continued.

“Yes, well, child Virgil has turned that into a game of sorts. Whoever finds him sitting in one of his obscure spots first wins.. cuddles for as long as they want. I realize now how ridiculous this game is, but it makes Virgil happy. And Virgil is rarely happy, which is upsetting, so I actually quite enjoy partaking in this silly game.”

Thomas can’t helping ‘awwing’ for a ridiculous amount of time which makes Logan cringe.

“Logan! You totally have a soft spot for cute children. Ya know you’re a lot more emotional, and fun than you try to make us think.”

Logan sighed exasperatedly, and looked at Patton.

“You won the game so it is now your turn to watch Virgil. Not like you’ll complain. If any of you need me I will be in my room recovering from these ridiculous past few days.”

Roman spoke up right as Logan sunk down.

“Gonna be a few more ridiculous days-maybe weeks-for you, buddy, but okay.”

Thomas laughed, and shook his head.

“You better find the solution!”

“I know! I know! I’ll go do that right now. Geez.”

And with that Roman sunk down. Thomas looked at Patton to see him holding a very sleepy Virgil.

“Uh, hey kiddo. I’d stay to help you figure some things out, but this kiddo is all tired out. Mind if I..?”

Thomas sighed, but couldn’t help smiling at the adorable sleepy side.

“It’s cool, Patton. Go ahead. We can talk later.”

Patton smiled, and sunk down to put Virgil down for a nap in his room.

Thomas sighed, and went back to doing what he was doing before he summoned the sides. All he could think is: Well, this should be interesting.

And yes. Interesting it will be.

hey what the fuck is a good ending? idk anyway yeah Thomas knows about lil baby Virgil now yay! (also i feel like the whole realistic outside world/height thing doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. let’s just pretend it does lmao)

Lol. Pardon my french here but… I get called an asshole and no offense right? Everything is fine


But I use the retard word and is like freaking disney droped the F bomb on a movie.

Guys lmfao, I’m from chile. My latinamerican fellas will understand here AND will back me up. We call eachother names all the time I guess the problem here, is how each country sees a word. Is a matter of culture.

Nobody, around here in this country finds any inch of offense in the that word some of you put in such high place like it’s a god you can’t look at.

Maybe tacos is an offensive word in… freaking… Qatar. And people there will look at you like the worst person ever like “DID YOU JUST CALL MY MOM TACOS?”

And hey! Is similar case here! We have WAY more tolerance towards these words.. oh excuse me, “OFFENSIVE WORDSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!” Amd we call eachother that and other words that might be considered offensive and we don’t give a simple crap about it.

If by any chance your tolerance towards chilean people like me who treat words like these daily without any offense taken. Dude, wth man? I don’t have time to deal with your idiotic small brain that can’t process and or understand that there are people outside your country with different opinions on language….

Are you new to the internet? There are other countries aside from Muricaland, with people that think and speak differently. If you can’t respect that then at least have the decency to NOT call me an “ASSHOLE” for it. That’s a pretty strong word in the english language as far as I’m concerned. So… piss off will ya?

saw beauty and the beast. and tbh. emma watson is a terrible bell. everyone else is great. lefou was both the best AND worst part of the movie, because it was so obvious that he was gay, but was the butt of every damn joke. and disney’s FIRST EXCLUSIVELY GAY MOMENT!!!!!111!!!!1!!! is literally a 2 second insert of a shot where lefou and some nameless guy touch hands during a dance. that’s literally it 

fuck disney for patting themselves on the back for that like it was some big progressive moment in disney history

  • Dude: so when are you gonna tell Ben how you feel?
  • Carlos: *screams*
  • Carlos: *realizes Dude is still under the truth gummy spell*
  • Carlos: What are you talking about?
  • Dude: Let's be real. You're only with Jane to satisfy Disney's heterosexual agenda for the sake of having a heterosexual couple.
  • Dude: But you want to be with Ben.
  • Carlos: He's with Mal. I can't do that to her.
  • Dude: Ah huh! So you do like him!
  • Carlos: Okay, okay. You got me. But I mean he's the reason I'm not afraid of dogs anymore. He's the reason we're together.
  • Dude: True.
  • Carlos: And plus he is pretty cute. His eyes. His smile. The way he carries himself...in that suit.
  • Carlos: But when he dressed up as an Isle kid, he looked hot as fu--
  • Dude: Listen! If you don't make a move in the third movie, I'm gonna be a very bad dog.
  • Carlos: The worst thing you've ever done, Dude, is spilling water on the floor while drinking from the bowl.

yaknow I really wonder if what eventually became The Emoji Movie was in development before movies like Wreck-It Ralph and The Lego Movie came out, or maybe an animator at Sony saw WIR and thought “Man this is so inspiring, I’d love to make a film sort of like this. What kind of story could I tell about the characters that might live inside some more modern technology?”

optimistic about this idea they pitch it to their bosses, after all the studio’s been hitting it out of the park with Genndy Tartakovsky and his Hotel Transylvania movies lately. it gets the greenlight and starts development when suddenly The Lego Movie comes out and their bosses demand they make their lead female character like Wyldestyle. our animator friend tries to make a slightly similar character but each time it gets sent in for review the higher ups keep insisting to make her more and more similar, to the point where she becomes a little too similar, and there’s no arguing with orders from the top.

oh well, our animator friend thinks, maybe it won’t turn out so bad. after all the executives here are finally letting us make Smurfs: The Lost Village instead of those live action atrocities. they’ve definitely realized by now copying and trying to cash in on other popular movies like the live action Alvin and the Chipmunks is a bad idea right?

and then Inside Out comes out

and some corporate goon struts into our animator friend’s office and proudly proclaims “good news, buddy! your movie is now about emojis!” “um… emojis, sir?” “yes, emojis! yaknow those little face things when you send texts? I shouldn’t have to explain it to you you’re a millennial.” “I’m 32.” “right, right. anyway we got a lot of sponsorship tied up in this thing now… candy crush, facebook, dropbox… gotta say, great idea setting a film inside a smartphone! incredibly marketable!” “actually I wanted it to be inside a computer, kind of like this TV show I grew up with called ReBoot but modernized and–” “phone, computer, same thing these days right? they’ve all got apps and more importantly, in-app purchases! anyway you’ll have plenty of time to work on it now that we canceled Popeye!” “you WHAT?”

and so our poor dear animator friend resigned to their fate, dreading the day the critics’ screenings began, seeing their worst fears inevitably realized when the film just narrowly escaped 0% on rotten tomatoes. should this tragic tale indeed be true, let us hope with all our hearts that this animator eventually finds their way to pixar, disney or dreamworks instead, so they can take The Emoji Movie off their resume and put what must have been a traumatic and miserable time in their life behind them

I’m not rlly sure how to articulate this so…forgive me but…as a middle eastern girl growing up I’ve NEVER seen positive representation of myself in movies or tv. One of the only things I ever had to look up to was princess Jasmine in Aladdin. My dad used to read me a copy of 1001 arabian nights as a kid, translating it from farsi to english for me. Now, as I see so many people excited for the release of the new Aladdin movie in live action I’ve just become very disheartened with the entire social justice movement as a whole. Seeing my friends, especially OTHER POC calling for people of the wrong race to be cast in the movie is what truly disgusts me the most. I’ve seen countless fan casts of Aladdin as Riz Ahmed, Dev Patel, Avan Jogia, Zayn Malik and other south asian celebs. As well as MANY tweets and articles about how it should be easy to fly into bollywood and pick the perfect actor.  But when I saw ONE post with rami malek in it, people instantly shut it down. I’ve also seen countless posts with Priyanka Chopra and random black IG models saying thay’d be “perfect” for Jasmine. But when one person on instagram posted that Jade Thirlwall would be a good Jasmine, all the comments were saying she’d be terrible and even that she’s not the right race? Also, I’m not trying to say Rami or Jade would be right for the roles, because assuming any actor of the right ethnicity would be perfect is a whole other can of worms. 

The few posts I’ve seen calling this out and asking for middle eastern actors to be cast people said “who cares at least they look the part” or “at least its better than whitewashing” as if we’re supposed to be happy with other (better represented) ethnic groups stealing our ONE role just because they’re brown too? I’d like you to name all the black, latino, east asian, or even south asian actors you know. Or maybe name a movie about these cultures that framed the culture in a positive light. Now name a single middle eastern actor. Now name a movie about the middle east, or starring middle eastern people that framed us in a positive light. We have ZERO representation in Hollywood. And now the one story we have that is rooted in ancient middle eastern lore and culture, we should be grateful we’re having our stories stolen from us, just because the thieves are POC too? I’ve completely lost all faith in poc solidarity, especially between south asians and middle eastern people. 

I’ve also seen the excuse ”the original aladdin was set in China.” yes, I’m sure wikipedia is very knowledgeable but actually a WHITE FRENCH person wrote the version set in china, the original is actually a syrian story that he took and compiled with the rest of the original 1001 nights, changing the setting from the middle east to china. 

I’ve also seen excuses that the original movie drew very heavily from indian influence, and that’s why its okay for indian actors to be cast. This argument is even more disappointing to me. Agrabah was not, in fact, based on Agra, but rather Baghdad. The sultan’s palace does look like the Taj Mahal, but it also looks like ANY mosque in the world, especially if you simply google “iraq mosque”. Anyways, Disney animators acting as though the cultures are interchangeable and mixing them together doesn’t excuse people of different ethnicities trying to co-opt this middle eastern story, and with Disney putting out a casting call specifying that both Aladdin and Jasmine should be middle eastern, its shameful to me that other POC are trying to defend miscasting that hasn’t even happened yet. DIsney is hopefully trying to fix what they did in the original movie, by separating the indian cultural influences from true source material, and people are somehow mad about this?? Just weird to me that people are somehow MAD that we’re trying to say not all brown cultures are interchangeable and related to each other. And veeery interesting how willing people are to try and snatch roles that truly belong to middle eastern people away from them. The worst part is that it’s not even white people doing this lmao 

hercules (1997) directed by john musker & ron clements was one of my fave movies as a wee child but to this day it bothers me how zeus was just like.. portrayed as generally goofy/lovable. i know it was a disney movie, for children, and that every greek god was.. the worst, but still. anyway. “i won’t say (i’m in love)”? still goes.. so fucking hard

Te Fiti was my enemy. But, it turns out, Te Fiti is also her own worst enemy. And the enemy of my enemy is my friend. So, Te Fiti is actually my friend….. But, because she’s her own worst enemy, the enemy of my friend is my enemy. So, actually, Te Fiti is my enemy….. But…

I don't want to reblog that long ass BoL vs Coco post

But the amount of misinformation on it is astounding. When Gutierrez opted his movie at Pixar, he was turned down because Pixar was already optioning Coco, they noted similar themes, and while in the past they’ve completely cancelled movies to allow similar sounding projects from other studios a chance to flourish (the whole Newt/Rio thing), I’m guessing they didn’t cancel Coco here because at this point neither project had been totally green lit. Part of the reason BoL eventually DID get greenlit was because Fox saw the whole trademark debacle go down, prior to Coco being formally announced (remember the first rumblings of the project started spreading when Toy Story 3 hit theaters) and Fox saw it as an opportunity to get a movie made that could beat Coco to the box office and establish mindshare specifically so that when Coco did finally get announced this exact dumb comparison stuff would happen. You guys are doing exactly what Fox hoped would happen. And speaking of the trademark debacle…

Disney/Pixar did not try to trademark Dia De Los Muertos as a way to own the holiday and merchandising and distribution rights etc. It was to register the then working title of Coco, and start the ball rolling on all the work and contracts necessary to get everything from trailers to posters to yes merchandise made. The backlash to the whole misunderstanding delayed the project and made them have to wait until it’s final title was nailed down to officially announce anything. Keep in mind that other holidays and yes even Dia De Los Muertos have already/since been trademarked for the purposes of film and short projects, just as Disney was attempting to do 5 years ago. It doesn’t mean any of the distributors of those films can sue someone for celebrating or that they can commodify the holiday in any way.

Also, in what way is Coco existing a bad thing? The Book of Life is great, I like it, but it’s not a transcendental film that means there’s no room for similar concepts to be explored ever again. It was forced to include a marketable but relatively inauthentic cast, referenced to contemporary music and humor that could make for a sellable trailer. It’s frame narrative is heavy handed and clunky. Visually it’s absolutely ace though, and frankly, I think Coco looks beautiful too from what little we’ve been given. The casting for Coco is promising, the crew is promising, the intent and the amount of research has been promising. Disney/Pixar also has the capital and the reach to make this a film that will be seen by a far wider audience than The Book of Life was able to, and that’s important! We should be encouraging this! Assuming the movie doesn’t turn out to be a terrible and offensive garbage heap, which even given Pixar’s worst output, seems highly unlikely, how is it a bad thing for this movie to be made? Oh, I guess because in 120 seconds of broad strokes the teaser seemed too similar to The Book of Life? Why not give this movie a chance to come out, see it, and THEN make your comparisons? I know a lot of people feel that whatever came first cannot be topped and should remain unchallenged, but as a Mexican, I whole heartedly welcome attempts to introduce audiences to stories and themes I grew up with. A movie like this taking off opens the door for more, and more stories about my family’s culture, about different aspects of that culture, beyond DotD. DotD is mainly the go to because the core of the celebration is universal and we encourage EVERYONE to participate. It’s an aspect of our culture that we openly share already, but here’s another chance for it to be presented with a voice that can reach further. I’m stoked, to be completely honest.

Plus, while a lot of people on here are trying to be scorned on behalf of Gutierrez, and pit these two films against each other instead of letting them complement each other, Gutierrez was tweeting how excited he is to see Coco.
