ok my thing with live action remakes is that they’re smart only in the short term

Based off the three I’ve seen (Maleficent/Cinderella/Beauty and Beast) they bring a similar aesthetic of embroidery and pastels and princess-y dreamyness which, don’t get me wrong, is fitting and I definitely love the look, but it’s been done three times. More detailed, embroidered dresses, ornate and packed-to-the-point-of-clutter sets, and at least one scene where a girl in a blue dress is running through a field. 

And because they’re beautiful and let people see their favorite movies in a way that doesn’t change them but shows nostalgia in a new way, they’ve been successful. Economically it’s great because it’s a way to double your money on one idea. There have been small updates to each movie, in the sense that they touch on a new social issue, but never in a way that I think is particularly trailblazing or worthy of a ton of praise. Like when (Maleficent spoilers) Maleficent was the one to break the spell, that was a cool strike for platonic love and women’s autonomy, but it wasn’t very effective &, a bit predictable. (BatB spoilers) If they really wanted to add gay representation to Batb, they probably could’ve given LeFou more than three seconds of eye contact with another man.

So, once you start getting into having several live action movies made, it just seems like it’s all been done. The same aesthetics, the same slight twists that are like…nice, but ultimately not the same as putting concentrated effort into diversity and updating stories (Like, instead of casting POC we’re gonna get a bisexual Sebastian). So, long term, you’re showing that you’re out of ideas & still avoiding present issues.

Disney is a really traditional company that plans things around ‘family appeal’. Unless they’re going to start pushing boundaries in their live action movies, then they’re going to start feeling less like nostalgic rehashings and more like skeletons of movies that had a lot of heart put into them. There’s a lot of creative people and a lot of cool stories to tell, so why try to retell a story people can revisit anytime when you can talk about people from other countries and cultures? Theres more fairy tales and stories behind that, and I think Disney could do well with those too  

  • XCOM Ranger: There's civilians in the village.
  • XCOM Grenadier: I believe the way that you pronounce that is 'acceptable casualties'.
  • XCOM Specialist: No! Hearts and minds, people, we're not bombing the civvies.
  • XCOM Grenadier: You see, they WILL have hearts and minds. They'll just be splattered all over the-
  • XCOM Specialist: No!

I am legit fed up with people young enough to be my children telling me that I can’t use the term special interest because I’m not autistic.

Honey, that term is one that’s been applied to every developmental disorder, and the term you want me to use instead, hyperfixation, has just as much history with DD and autism as special interest.

On top of that, I’ve been using the term special interest since 2001 or so, before I even had a diagnosis, with the blessing of autistic people.

This is my term, and I’m not letting anyone take it away from me.

everyone else: is playing mass effect: andromeda
me: is playing da2. again.
