ok real talk - I have a problem with the hate that, for the most part, used to be in the fandom tag bc of how dumb some of the reasons were.
you hated Emma’s singing? ok, well she’s not the only damn person in the movie and hating the entire movie just because of her is rude and disrespectful to all the other amazing actors who were in it.
relied too much on flashy effects? what the fuck do you call most modern blockbusters then, MINOR ON EFFECTS? there weren’t even that many noticeable special effects except for like Be Our Guest or the battle with the villagers, which by their nature HAD to have a lot of effects because the prominence of the enchanted objects in those scenes.
bad representation of gay people? no one said it was going to be glorious representation. the split second Stanfou scene was blown MASSIVELY out of proportion, and it was just a thing that Bill Condon talked about doing with the actors. his choice of mentioning it in an interview was taken and everyone spun it to make it seem like LeFou being gay was a focal point of the movie, which no one claimed.
