when you’re listening to “Hello Stranger” by Barbara Lewis and just remember how Kevin had Chiron listen to it knowing that it reminded him of him with lyrics like “Please don’t tease me Like you did before Because I still love you so” and just wondering how both of those characters felt in that moment and how its just genuinely one of the best/most romantic scenes in any media and its coming from this lovely gay, black couple
Can I just talk for a quick moment about the island of Themyscira, where a large portion of the film’s beginning takes place because it’s not just that it was an island full of gorgeous, powerful, strong and autonomous women. Did you notice? That MOST of those women were middle aged and older? Like do you have any idea how much that means to me I have been stressed about getting older since I was 16 years old because only young women ever appear in movies, only young women in their early 20s are ever allowed to be powerful and amazing and I have been plagued for my entire adult life with the idea that I have to hurry, hurry HURRY! Do things NOW because life after 30 DOESNT EXIST OR MATTER like do you have any idea how the lack of representation of older women hurts us?
I wanted to cry because on that screen was a whole legion of women who were not young, who were well into their adulthood, who were active, and strong, and beautiful.
Fuck it, I want to take up swordsmanship. I’m 28 and you know what? I wanna grow up to be an Amazon.
