what do you think season 4 will be like for westallen?? will iris have moved on, im thinking a time jump of a couple years maybe???
A couple years is a bit much, they’ll probably do the usual time jump of a few months (not more than six), and I highly doubt Iris will move on. That will almost certainly not happen. The show tends to resolve the season finale cliffhangers within the first episode of the next season too, so I expect Barry to be back by the end of 4.01, and even if they stray from that tradition I can’t see them taking longer than 4.02 to bring him back.
Why Im critical about emma watson and the new beauty and the beast movie: The masterpost
Okay so I dont wanna go back and forth and burden someone elses post so I decided to just compile my thoughts into one post.
I understand why you might want to defend an actress you love but I think problemtizing her ridiculous wealth and following privilege is much more productive. I think my anger toward the corporate process behind these movies should be understandable, especially as a huge beauty and the beast fan and I absolutely despise when my criticisms and thoughts and dismissed as uwu negativity!!!! or “mindless bashing” because my criticisms only come from my love for the 1991 movie and defiance of corporate greed. I really loved the cinderella (2015) movie, and when I heard they were going to make a live action movie of my favorite disney film of all time, I was so excited! Though I knew deep down they were just gonna mess it up, when I saw the cast I really hoped for the best. The truth is, I had extremely low standards for this movie, and was still immensely disappointed. I first wanna explain why I dislike emma specifically, (though I feel immense wealth is reason enough lol) but she made so many moves in this movie that are completely out of line as an actress. She tried to put her ~feminist~ stamp on this movie but her feminism lacks nuance and only really benefits her image and is ultimately pointless. She heavily influenced the costumes and shouldnt have had the right to do that when she knows nothing of costuming, and people who have actually devoted their lives to that art were hired to do that. (I have my own criticisms of Jacquelines previous work, but still doubt the costumes would have been as horrible if she had complete control). My other huge concern with this movie was lefou. Trying to make him a sympathetic gay character was absolutely insulting, not to mention josh gads horrendous “straight man playing what he thinks is a gay man” interpertation of the character. Lefou is meant to be a bumbling fool of sidekick,literally, and thats it. To make a character with this label “the fool” (also a term used to call people crazy in french, which is a whole nother baggage of homophobia) queer is downright insulting to the 1991 film and story which was heavily influenced by howard ashmans experience as a gay man with aids. On top of that, this movie tried to hail itself as progressive for not having one, but TWO!! black side characters. Not only are there musical theatre actors that would have put much more effort and talent into the role, there are musical theatre actresses of color out there who would have been much more suited for the role but overlooked for an already famous white actress who cant sing (or act…. but maybe thats debatable… lmao) And the choice Emma made, knowing she is not capable for this role, and still accepting it and riding on her HP fame is priviliege in itself. This movie is a complete mess and is a prime example of corporate disney wanting to make money off some quick half-assed nostalgia without bringing anything new or progressive to the story, and not even having any beautiful visuals to make up for it.
