never seen this movie

anonymous asked:

When you're talking about Elsas abuse we're you talking about her parents hiding her away? Sorry if this is dumb AgHshddh I'm an abuse vicitim and I just thought your commentary on that was interesting I never caught that (Then again it's been a while since I've seen the movie but yeah :0!)

yeah! that and also, if you go back and watch the movie, a lot of what they say to her is just, really heartbreaking? 

this is the opening to the film, and toward the end of the clip we can see elsa holding anna in her arms and her parents immediate reaction is “elsa what have you done?! this is getting out of hand!” not like, what a normal parent would say which would be something more like “elsa, what happened?” 

so the first time we meet their parents, our very first impression of them is that they do not trust their daughter, and that elsa has hurt anna in the past, or at the very least, her parents are convinced she has/will hurt her. this is like… definitely not something a good parent thinks of their child. it’s plainly obvious that elsa’s parents are scared of her (what breaks my heart is elsa’s expression after her father says this too and her small “it was an accident…”)

and then they go to the trolls who then erase anna’s memories of elsa’s powers, which thrusts elsa’s dad in This monologue:

“No, we’ll protect her. She can learn to control it, I’m sure.Until then, we’ll lock the gates, reduce the staff, we will limit her contact with people, and keep her powers hidden from everyone. Including Anna”.

This is like, abuse tactics 101. Hiding your child away from people and limiting their contact with them is Abuse. It’s really no different from what happened to Rapunzel, in my honest opinion. Being locked away from the world. 

The difference being with Rapunzel was that she was told that the world was dangerous, Elsa on the other hand was told that She herself was dangerous.

And then in “Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?”, we see this scene in the middle of the song where Elsa’s dad Literally tells her not to Feel Anything. 

A little later in the video we see Elsa completely distraught and unable to even let her parents Touch her or Hug her or calm her Down because over the years they’ve taught her that she is a danger not only to herself but to everyone around her. She wont even accept physical comfort because she thinks she’s going to hurt someone. 

The way Elsa is treated is so incredibly horrible to watch like, it’s just so obviously abuse. Mother Gothal was treated for what she was: an abuser. So why aren’t Elsa’s parents? 

I mean shit man, if you go and look at “A Frozen Heart”, a novel written about the movie for more mature audiences that followers Hans and Anna as the events of the movie unfold, we get a glimpse at whats happening off screen to Elsa when Anna stumbles upon her sister and parents in the solarium.

It goes on to talk about how their father has an anger problem, to which Anna says “no you don’t remember when–” and lists off a bunch of times where she fucked up and he still didn’t get as upset as he did with Elsa just then. 

And this novel is canon. Everything that happens in here is 100% something that’s happened in universe. And it all just strikes me, as an abused person myself, as so obviously abusive. The way that they treat Elsa is horrible. Blaming her for pushing them away when it was them who pushed her away and in the first place, locking her away from people and from her sister, forcing her to conceal her emotions and to feel Nothing (Conceal, Don’t Feel always felt sinister to me and when I went back and watch this movie with a critical eye a while ago I finally realized why). 

But this is all why I love Elsa so much. This is the perfect Villain backstory and she still only just wanted to protect her sister. 

I could also get into how Anna was groomed to be abusive as well but we’re talking about the king and queen rn lol and this is already long enough.

The Wakandan Royal Portrait offers clues to the dangers within the fictional nation

T’CHALLA

“What makes him different from other superheroes first and foremost is he doesn’t see himself as a superhero,” says director and co-writer Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed). “He sees himself as a politician. That’s the first thing on his mind when he wakes up in the morning. ‘How am I going to fulfill my duties as king of this place?’”

That means not just fighting external foes, but keeping the citizens of his nation happy. He’s a king, but not a tyrant. And Wakandans don’t speak with only one voice. There are many political factions, many clashing points of view. Some are ready for revolution. Some are being pushed.

“He has to keep harmony between the tribes within his country, and that means managing expectations and doing things that are unpopular,” Coogler says. “At the same time, he is the protector of that nation.”

RAMONDA

Angela Bassett costars as Ramonda, once the queen, now the mother of the king.

“She is one of the advisors that he would look to,” Boseman says. “He has to look to her for some of the answers of what his father might want or might do. She may not be exactly right all the time, but she definitely has insights. She is the queen mother. And she’s that for not just him, but for everybody.”

Bozeman laughs. “She’s has her hands in everything — even his love life.”

NAKIA

“The one thing I will say about all the female characters in this movie is that they are very strong,” Boseman says. “It’s a very matriarchal society.”

One of them is Wakanda’s undercover operative Nakia, played by 12 Years a SlaveOscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o. She may actually be the closest thing to 007 in this movie, and she’s a former lover of T’Challa’s.

“She is a departure from what she was in the comic book,” Nyong’o says. “Nakia is a war dog. She is basically an undercover spy for Wakanda. Her job is to go out into the world and report back on what’s going on.”

She also boasts some unique weaponry. “We call them her ring blades,” says Moore. “The ones Lupita carries while in the green outfit are based on traditional African weaponry. However, she does get a hi-tech upgrade later in the film, compliments of Shuri.”

SHURI

Letitia Wright plays T’Challa’s kid sister, who is no one you want to face in battle either. “She is also a genius and runs the entire Wakandan design group,” says producer Kevin Feige, whose also president of Marvel Studios and one of the chief architects of its interlocked universe. “She’s responsible for all these amazing technological advances that Vibranium has brought about from Wakanda.”

Here she is pictured with twin, panther-shaped weapons. It’s not clear yet what they do exactly, but it probably hurts.

OKOYE

She’s not technically family, but she’s just as close. This character played by The Walking Dead‘s Danai Gurira is the head of the Dora Milaje, the all-female special soldiers unit that protects the kingdom (and the king) from harm.

“They are a very powerful force,” she says. “They are not utopic, but what Wakanda has down well is it has allowed people to function within their strengths. These women, their strength is to preserve Wakanda. It’s more like the secret service in a sense that it’s not just military. She is head of intel.”

Okoye has guilt over the death of the previous king, and she’s generally a stoic presence. But she’s not unfeeling. “She can be serious, but she also has an unexpected sense of humor,” Gurira says. “She has a heart, but for her country and for her people. She’s not a person who doesn’t connect to human beings as a result of what she does.”

ERIK KILLMONGER

There is an enemy in this portrait.

In the comics, he was once a Wakandan known as N’Jadaka, but he took on this “death-dealing” nom de guerre when he became a dissident, then an exile, from his homeland.

Michael B. Jordan’s character is one of the antagonists of the film, allied with the mercenary Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis, reprising his role from Avengers: Age of Ultron), an arms dealer who has plundered Vibranium before and plans to do it again. He’s addicted.

In The Godfather terms, Killmonger has sided with this outsider against “the family,” his brothers and sisters of Wakanda. “I think Killmonger has his own opinion on how Wakanda has been run and should run, and what I think Michael brings to the table is sort of a charming antagonist, who doesn’t agree with how T’Challa is running things, frankly,” says Moore. “I think that puts T’Challa in a difficult situation. Killmonger is a voice of a different side of Wakanda.”

W’KABI

Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya plays T’Challa’s best friend, who is also a member of one of the most vital groups in the nation. “W’Kabi is the head of security for the Border Tribe,” says Moore. “They live on the borders of Wakanda and serve as the first line of defense for the country.”

In other words, he helps maintain the disguise that Wakanda is just mines, farms, and woods.

“To outsiders they appear to be what people would ‘expect’ of a small provincial African nation – but the truth is they are some of the fiercest warriors in Wakanda, intent on protecting the secrets of their advanced nation at all costs,” Moore says.

Now that T’Challa is king, he asks W’Kabi to join him as a palace advisor.

ZURI

Another vital voice of reason for the young king is Forest Whitaker’s shaman, a longtime advisor to T’Challa’s father and the keeper of the Heart-Shaped Herb, a plant that grows only in Wakanda and absorbs the Vibranium-rich minerals. When consumed, it gives the new leader superhuman strength. (But in the comics, it only works on members of the royal bloodline.)

“He’s somewhat a religious figure or spiritual figure,” Coogler says of Zuri. “Spirituality is something that exists in Wakanda in the comics, and it’s something we wanted to have elements of in the film. Forest’s character, more than anything, is a major tie-back to T’Challa’s father. Zuri is someone he looks to for guidance.”

As wondrous as Wakanda seems, it can also be treacherous. For all the talk of honor in The Godfather, the families were compulsively driven to destroy each other. 007 may venture to the most beautiful places (and people) on Earth, but there’s always a villain determined to wipe those places off the map. If Black Panther owes thematic inspiration to those predecessors, the danger comes hand in hand with the beauty.

But that’s where the similarities will end. When the Marvel Studios movie debuts Feb. 16, the story will remain on Earth, but its creators pledge to take fans to a world they’ve never seen before nonetheless.

“I don’t think people are prepared for what this movie is going to be,” says Feige. “Not just Black Panther, but the Dora Milaje, and Killmonger, and the entire design of Wakanda – both its traditional African-inspired elements, but also the Vibranium inspired techno-elements. I can’t think of a blend that has happened like that before in movies.”

There’s only one Black Panther, after all.

No matter who wants to lay claim to his throne.

Is your never seen the goofy movie vine archived anywhere? :C

Yeah, on YouTube.  

Wonder Woman is an exceptional movie.

The wartime commentary is spot on. Diana’s character development is very well paced and incredibly satisfying. She’s a wonderfully multifaceted character who’s compassionate, affectionate, sexual, powerful, and strong all at once. Steve Trevor is kind and brave and gentle and patient and refuses to fall into conventionally masculine tropes. The movie acknowledges the treatment of Native Americans under American colonialism and has a Native American character. It has POC, and a scene that shows Sikh soldiers, acknowledging the participation of POC in the World Wars, something I have never seen before.

It’s an unequivocally genuine movie, which brings to life a story that’s both heart wrenching and heartwarming at the same time. Do yourselves a favour and watch it.
