- me: I actually liked Kingsman: The Golden Circle and quite enjoyed it
- someone: yeessss!!!!!! it was the best!!!!!! Matthew Vaughn is an awesome director!!!!!!!!!!
- me: okay but what a mess???? let's not even talk about the various story lines that didn't even go together, and the plot holes, and the lack of balance. but what about killing off Roxy?? not only was it bullshit and unnecessary, it was also so badly written. her death gets lost in the chaos of the agency getting destroyed completely, and then glossed over as "we don't have time to be emotional". it was so badly done from a dramaturgical standpoint as well, starting out the story with a crushing moment like this but then not giving the audience the time to work through it or even see the impact of it, instead moving on directly to the Statesmen stuff. Oh and the queerbaiting?? I didn't expect for Hartwin to become canon or anything, it's not about that. But I do have a problem when they queercode Harry, when they promise gay Merlin, when they make lighthearted jokes but then go "no homo" on every possible character. Eggsy gets a girlfriend, Merlin gets to flirt with Ginger Ale, and Harry says that he has never been in love WHAT BULLSHIT. We all know i'm the first when it comes to aro headcanons, but Harry is so clearly gay and the writers know this, but they wouldn't want to offend any target audiences, so instead of going through with it, they just make gay jokes, and that's on the expense of our community, who don't get representation but get laughed at instead. This whole movie was a mess, inconsistent, rushed, going beyond believable at times, and not in an ironic and fun way. The ending was undeserved, the wedding unnecessary. The best parts of the movie were honestly when they were feeding off of the nostalgia and the references of the first one, and the rest was saved by the fact that Taron and Colin are immensely good actors and that they portrayed the Eggsy/Harry relationship quite beautifully. that all being said, fuck Matthew Vaughn he deserves no praise
Ummmm like yeah I know this is hella strange but... What do you think about Evil!Deku Au?? I know this kind of thing is absolutely not about fandom precious bun but just imagine yourself: Deku didn't meet All Might and at one moment he just tired of all this shit. Like, you know, at one day he have finally understand that you can't be hero without a quirk and he can't enroll in YA because hE JuST DOn't HAVe FreaCKING quirk but there is no such think as villain academy and he is like: 'why not??'
