Slytherin things:

It is not unheard of to, now and then, come across a Slytherin sitting, seemingly oblivious to the three or more Hufflepuffs using them as a pillow or post.  This is a combination of Hufflepuff and Slytherin house dynamics: a Slytherins tendency to get lost in their thoughts and Hufflepuffs being golden retrievers in human form.

How was it possible to be afraid and in love… The two things did not go together. How was it possible to be afraid, when the two of them grew stronger together every day? And every night. Every night was different, and every morning. Together they possessed a miracle. ― Patricia Highsmith, The Price of Salt

How Tipo babies would happen

So we’ve seen how Dreamworks handled the babies of a donkey and a dragon, one other way they could handle Po and Tigress ever having kids would be this handy-dandy trope:

Also, has NOBODY noticed that the bunny and the goose at the beginning of KFP3 are “brothers”? Although that is questionable since one laid an egg. Hell, maybe that’s his wife or something.

I seek enlightenment on the subject, so let us gather together EVERY SINGLE multi-species relationship in the entire KFP franchise (yeah, series included) to put in our ‘Why Tipo Can Happen‘ Pile.


Exibit A) Mr. Ping dated a freaking SCORPION

Exhibit B) One of the original plot-lines in the first KFP film was for Po’s mother to date other animals.

Hey Elizabeth! Don’t you have some racist AF, rape culture promoting, homophobic POS movie to make? 

1. Racist AF: the Asian character in both “Pitch Perfect” movies is literally a human joke with no real dialogue, just “weirdo” surreal one-liners. The Latina character in the 2nd movie is the same, and the jokes involve how little her life is worth because she’s Latina. And Banks directed that one! 

2. Rape Culture promoting: see this post - Rape Culture 101: “No Means Yes”

3. Homophobic: the black character’s lesbianism is literally joked about in the first movie and treated with a “hush hush wink wink” vibe from the other girls throughout both. The “Bellas” all treat it as something embarrassing and it’s only treated as normal the one time in each movie that the character shares an anecdote about herself.

To be clear:

1. I’m not saying that Spielberg shouldn’t make more movies with women leads, far from it!

2. I AM saying that it’s peak white feminism when you read through Spielberg’s Wiki or IMDB filmography, see The Color Purple, and not know that movie STARRED OPRAH WINFREY AND WHOOPI GOLDBERG. 

Millennials and young people, you have an excuse - Banks doesn’t. She is 43 and was 11 when the movie came out in 1985. The movie and actresses were nominated for Oscars in ‘86 and Goldberg won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress. This was not some college film that Spielberg made, it was nominated for 10 Oscars.

3. I am ALSO saying that “Pitch Perfect 2″ directed by Banks was one of the most offensive movies I’ve watched in years (yeah I know there are worst movies, I don’t seek out shit), especially the “throwaway life / who cares if I die” joke line on the Latina character. 

Elizabeth Banks - work on your own shit, hire women of color as writers, and watch The Color Purple for f*cks sake

Hick (2011) - Derick Martini

5 bullets on this film:

  • Many people didn’t like this movie because it has a boring and slow pace. But it’s a road movie!!! It’s supposed to be like this!! Most of the scenes are gonna be about the protagonist walking around the desert with a country song playing in the backgrund. Keep that in mind and try to enjoy the damn movie.
  • The characters have a strong personality and they are well defined. I love Luli, the main character, so much. She’s one of the women who inspire me AND SHE’S NOT EVEN REAL. 

  • If Eddie Redmayne and Chloe Grace Moretz weren’t in this movie it would suck a little bit. Honestly, they are way better than this script. Eddie, you always in my heart. 

  • It’s very similar to the book it was based on, but I think the movie lacks ‘personality’. The dialogues aren’t natural, and I feel like something more could have been added. 

  • The cinematography is really good, and I really like the costume design. It’s not original or extraordinary, but it’s a nice colorful - indie - cute movie.
Movies you should watch :--)

I completely forgot about this PO test I did back in 2009! The dream was to be a 2D Animator. I freelanced for a studio that was doing a test for a 2d Kung Fu Panda sequence. They didn’t get the gig, but I had a blast animating on paper and getting to work with a few of my favorite characters from the KFP movies!!!

A Warrior of Black and White

An explanation of why I believe Lord Shen wasn’t defeated by Po and neither was he meant to.

[Spoilers for Kung Fu Panda 2 below]

After watching Kung Fu Panda 3 (and loving it), I went back to rewatch parts of my favorite second part. One moment in particular always struck me as intense - the one where Shen closes his eyes just before his death. Has he found inner peace in that last moment, I wondered. We don’t know for sure, but I don’t think so. I think he might have been relieved that his demise would come from an accident (one of his own making, too) and not from the prophesied “warrior of black and white”. He accepted it as the closest he could get to victory - going down, but not as he was foretold.

All this time he expected a panda to be the one who defeats him, but I think it was never the meaning of the prophecy. 

I think the warrior of black and white was Shen himself.

First of all, just like the pandas, he fits visually (add red and you got it). Secondly, and more importantly, unlike Po, Shen deals in extremes - everyone is either for or against him. Remember how easily he turned on Wolf Boss? Shen has a very black and white view of the world.

Thirdly, let’s look at the prophecy:

“…if Shen continued down this dark path, he would be defeated by a warrior of black and white.”

If he continued. That is a very important point. He didn’t have to continue his research of weaponizing fireworks. He could have stopped it then and there. But because he deals in black and white he did not consider his own course of action could possibly be the problem. He believed someone was out to get him, because everyone is either an ally or an enemy, there is no middle ground.

It was his black and white outlook that was his doom. If he continued making judgements based on that, if he failed to see how it was a dangerous way of thinking both to him and others, then he would be defeated. By himself.

And that’s what happened. Po may have taken down his ships, destroyed his canons, but who made the canon fall on Shen - the peacock himself. Why? Because even when everything was lost and Po told him he held no grudge, and Shen could have turned a new leaf, instead he pressed on.

And so he was killed and thus ultimately defeated through no will other than his own. I find it deeply poetic that what kills him is the very thing he was pursuing. Sadly, I don’t think he ever understood this. He is indeed a very tragic villain.

Before Shen’s turning point, where he went out to command a genocide of the pandas, we have really little idea of whether he was really that bad a guy. His parents seemed to care for his well-being, he was rich, he was busy inventing weapons. Maybe they were for defense. Most likely they were an attempt to make his firework-inventing elders proud. One way or another, Shen’s character was tested by the prophecy. And thus the warrior of black and white came to be. Not Po. But Shen himself.

And so Kung Fu Panda 2 remains my favorite from the three currently existing movies. And one of my all time favorite movies in general. 

It shows us a hero, who has all the reasons to be filled with prejudice, to believe himself the ultimate judge, the chose one, one who knows best - and yet he is a flexible forgiving guy, who knows how to move on and let go of things. And the villain is his exact opposite - someone whose judgements were extreme and who could not let go or move on, focusing on one path until it consumed him. At any moment Shen could have stopped what he was doing and saved himself from defeat, but he couldn’t see it.

Shen’s final exchange with Po is very powerful to me. It’s what makes them different, it’s what gives one strength and dooms the other to failure. 

The moral of this story is: don’t be inflexible warriors of black and white, kids, or you might get yourself killed. But if you do go out the same way Shen did, maybe at least the fireworks will create your image in the sky:

P.S. Of course the prophecy could also mean Po, cause he is a balanced dude, thus black and white, but hey, I like my theory. XD
