Take animated movies seriously. My parents called Spiderverse garbage because it was animated. How is that a good gauge for storytelling? And then my dad was so surprised at the amount of animators in the credits. Of course there’s a lot! It can take years to animate a 2 hour movie! Honestly stop people from believing that animation is “only for kids”. So what if an animated movie is for kids? So what if it’s animated? That shouldn’t define the quality of a film. In fact isn’t it better for movies “only for kids” to have good storytelling and morals and real life lessons?
“I’m here because there’s a immigrant man who took it upon himself to push himself in the most extraordinary way. He’s bisexual, gay, moves from Zanzibar to London was a fish out of water and somehow stepped on stage and told everyone they could be exactly who they wanted to be.”
I saw my whole life as if I’d already lived it. An endless parade of parties and cotillions, yachts and polo matches. Always the same narrow people, the same mindless chatter. I felt like I was standing at a great precipice, with no one to pull me back… No one who cared, or even noticed. Titanic (1997) dir. James Cameron
