There are many reasons why I don’t buy the cynical interpretation that Ariel gives away her identity for a man.

One of them starts in the next paragraph. Another one can be read here.

This screencap comes from her introductory scene. She’s searching through a shipwreck for human artifacts–which is her passion–when suddenly she’s attacked by a shark.

While fleeing, she accidentally drops her bag full of artifacts right in the shark’s path. Without hesitating, she chooses her passion over her safety, risking her life for a dinglehopper.

The girl is an anthropologist who studies humans. That’s her passion, that’s how she spends her time…that’s her identity.

Sure, Eric is the catalyst that leads Ariel to changing her species and leaving her family–he certainly intensifies her feelings–but they’re feelings she already has, and they dictate most of her life.

If Ariel had the chance to become a human before she met Eric, everything that we know about her suggests that she probably would.

Why Looney Tunes: Back in Action is objectively the greatest film ever made

No-one ever talks about Looney Tunes: Back in Action and that’s a crime.

Because…

Okay, Brendan Fraser plays a stuntman.

…who hates working with Brendan Fraser.

His dad is Timothy Dalton, who plays an actor most well known for spy films.

…who turns out to actually be a real spy and hides spy shit behind a portrait of himself.

So father and son have to team up to stop an evil genius…   played by a near-unrecognisable Steve Martin.

…whose henchman is WWE star Bill Goldberg.

By the way, Steve Martin is the head of the ACME corporation.

Yes, that ACME.

Oh, and among Martin’s underlings are Ron Perlman and Robert Picardo.

So anyway our heroes end up at Area Fifty TWO… which is run by Joan Cusack.

…and which houses all sorts of alien nasties, including…

TRIFFIDS

THIS ISLAND EARTH MUTANTS

ROBOT MONSTER

AND MOTHER FUCKING DALEKS

Plus the twins from Gremlins 2 play the WARNER BROTHERS

Shaggy and Scooby chastise Matthew Lillard over the live action Scooby Doo movie.

Porky Pig and Speedy Gonzales lament political correctness killing their careers.

Brendan Fraser gets to punch Brendan Fraser.

Fucking plus

Plus the whole time he’s accompanied by Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny, and the whole thing was directed by Joe Dante so you know that’s a perfect fit.

So in conclusion, please watch Looney Tunes: Back in Action. It will most likely change your life.

EMARA: EMIRATES HERO - OPENING 1 

Ok, so, Shag, Scoob, and the Undertaker are all believed to be dead,

–after careening down a waterfall… stuck inside a sandwich truck… which exploded at the bottom in a huge fireball.

The rest of the gang’s reaction to seeing this is, as you would expect…

a vague mix of mild concern and general apathy.

Daphne at least seems somewhat worried, but Velma?

Velma has the expression you get when Starbucks tells you “Sorry, we’re all out of caramel syrup.”

“Oh. Hm. Too bad. Sugar-free vanilla, please.”

It’s truly a tragic–…

…is… 

…is that one of the biggest wrestling legends of all time… animated carrying a guy and talking dog… up the side of a waterfall…

…using a lasso made of hot dogs?

…yes. Yes it is.

Ladies and gentlemen, I ask you: why did this movie not win Best Picture at the 2016 Oscars?
