Paul Rudd is like the hot dad of your friend and it's really obvious but you don't want to say anything about it in case that friend stops inviting you to their house so you sit there at dinner and try not to stare at their hot dad but eventually you just have to say something and then you stop talking to that friend a month later for totally unrelated causes

I wanna thank both Marvel and DC for stepping up to the plate and giving poc and women (women 30+ mind you in WW) a place on the world stage and proving the importance of both women and poc. We need these movies now more than ever, we need to be grateful (despite all the fandom drama) that Black Panther and Wonder Woman exist and we live in an age that they can exist. I’m just very grateful to be alive during a time like this.
Beauty and the Beast isn't what Tumblr's been saying it is.
I can completely get over Emma Watson being Belle for the sheer amount of representation that’s in the film. What representation?
Let’s begin (spoiler alert!):
1. Black People in France. Yes, honey. For the first time in my life, I walked into a widely released period piece that doesn’t ignore the existence of black people. Not as mere servants and slaves, but as actual fucking court members and townspeople. Also, interracial couples. Y'ALL.
2. Le Fou. I was concerned about this, but he actually undergoes character development. He eventually abandons Gaston and has a change of heart (Disney-style, but I’ll take it). The scene with him “dancing with another man” at the end is led up to- it’s not just random. It doesn’t send the message that gay people are stupid and deserve to be mistreated (Mrs. Potts literally tells him he deserves better), which were my main concerns for this film. TL;DR, the LeFou plotline isn’t what Tumblr made it out to be, I promise.
3. The Gender Fluid Character. There is a scene in a which a character normalizes a man in a dress in a positive way. I was expecting him to be mocked, but this doesn’t happen! (Also, I believe this is the same character LeFou dances with at the end).
4. Belle teaches a child to read/ LeFou realizes he can’t read. Watson aside, the actual perils of living in 17th century France are explored, like the Plague, and also the importance of literacy. As children’s literacy is very important to me, I LOVED this.
There’s more, but I think the representation needs to be supported (listen, I almost never see myself in a period piece, I was expecting this cast to be vanilla as hell) and Disney needs to know that we want more of it.
ALSO: to the white and non-black POC who straight up lied about the representation in this film, I SEE YOU.
