the only disney movie i do not like

blookmallow  asked:

what are ur fav / least fav movie tropes (bonus round: fav / least fav horror tropes)

least fav

  • KILL YOUR GAYS
  • make-over scene in which its totally unnecessary i.e. the girl getting a make-over is clearly not interested in doing it and is only doing it to win a guy over by completely changing who she is 
  • disney’s ~spunky grandmother~ thing is starting to get on my nerves tbh but theres nothing really Problematic about it
  • “and it was all a dream/it was in their head/they were just ~crazy~ the whole time…..”
  • when a character has a dream and its just like. a normal life but they’re dating their crush or something. dreams are never that coherent and its a total waste of opportunity
    tbh dream sequences in general bother me unless theyre very well done and dont do the “oh nvm actually it was a dream thing!!” like dreams are a great way to explore a character’s psyche and reveal more about their personality but theyre so often written for things about a character that are like. inherently obvious. the first example coming to my head is the one in Moana where she dreams her village gets turned to ash or s/t as if we didnt already know she was worried about it??
  • the “chosen one” being a straight white man always taught by a clearly more competent woman (sorry Lego Movie i love you but,)
  • needless romantic subplots, esp between characters who have absolutely no chemistry and only get together because the script wants them to
  • couples yelling at each other until they get so mad they make-out/someone kissing someone mid-sentence to get them to stop talking
  • hero having the villain in point-blank killing range and decides not to because they dont want to be ~just like them~ like that villain is a fascist steve 
  • ALL ANIMALS BEING DOG-LIKE TO BE ‘’’’CUTE’’’’ ITS SO ANNOYING
  • smart mom has to put up with dumb dad 
  • nerd takes off their glasses and is suddenly hot now (esp when said nerd is hotter with glasses honestly and john carpenter im looking directly at you with arnie cunningham in christine)
  • like married couples that??? hate each other???
  • person about to reveal a secret to someone and the person somehow misses it i.e. gets distracted or the person gets interrupted or s/t
  • “white savior”
  • killing off women for the man’s development (also pointless deaths in general)
    also when a man dies and he tells his son like “take care of your mother…..”
  • characters who are huge assholes being “redeemed” by dying as if that makes up for how big of an asshole theyd been
  • “you know you only actually use about 40% of your brain….”
  • when a character is freaking out and someone slaps them like “get a hold of yourself!” as if physical pain has ever helped anyone stop being anxious like ever
  • characters getting attacked by a whole gang of villains who for some reason only attack the protag one at a time
  • stupid misunderstandings in which characters get into a huge fight because one of the characters heard like. part of a sentence and assumed they were shittalking
  • women having to teach men how Not to be huge assholes

fav tropes

  • villain wins (i’m a sucker for The Edge honestly!! kill me!!)
  • violent scene while a catchy tune plays in the background
  • walls closing in and the characters have to find a way out before they get crushed
  • old gruff and tough guys having to begrudgingly take care of little girls and then they learn to love them and basically adopt them
  • those scenes where a buncha shit is happening behind a person and theyre just completely oblivious 
  • stolen from a tumblr post: “group of main characters has been split up for questioning and they’re all answering the same questions in a neatly-spliced montage; the stories blatantly and hilariously conflict; when the cuts and dialogue still flow together like they’re all telling one story”
  • buddy cops??? movies where an experienced expert has to put up with teaching a newbie who doesnt know the business???
  • TRAINING MONTAGES
  • mad scientists
  • characters dying mid-sentence out of fucking no where
  • dramatically jumping and/or running away from explosions. best example: the oscar-deserving dog in independence day
  • characters creating like a board of notes with strings connecting all the clues together
  • “EVERYONE ACT NATURAL” [characters proceed to pose in the most ridiculous exaggerated poses]
  • reluctant hero esp if theyre comedically reluctant 
  • anti-heroes!!!

i googled a buncha tropes lmao but heres a bunch

I only just found out about this

Are you saying that the live-action movie has replaced Shang with some random gary stu OC whose straight guy boner™ is instantly activated once he realizes Mulan is actually a cute girl and not a guy

People on my feed are saying that Disney’s doing this because they’re trying to dodge “bi speculations”, and this is after making such a big deal about being progressive re: Le Fou in Beauty and the Beast - what’s wrong with Shang liking Mulan a lot when he thought she was a guy (and to end up still liking her when he found out the truth, which is how it should be)?

Like wow, you can miss me with this tbh, Disney has done it again

Disney: *gives you a canon gay character in a Disney movie, and at the end a boyfriend who’s nice and will 100% take good care of him and love him*

People: *ship him with the guy that treats him like shit, and only cares about himself*

Me:

I know I’m biased but I don’t understand how can anyone say they didn’t like emma watson as belle when she’s literally the real life version of her???? people can have different opinions and that’s fine you can watch the movie and think hey maybe they should have changed this and kept that but saying emma didn’t do a good job and comparing beauty and the beast with another disney live action movie especially if you only watched the trailer and listened to a few songs is really annoying lmao just give the movie a chance before you start bashing it

the signs as out of context quotes from my 3D art class
  • aries: "i've only met like... two good people named kevin."
  • taurus: "you know how in disney movies theres always one character that makes you go 'aww' and then theres one that's like the 'hey whats up' sidekick?"
  • gemini: "I DO NOT WANT TO THINK ABOUT A SLUG HAVING A C-SECTION!"
  • cancer: "i feel like he's either dead in a ditch somewhere, or his corpse is rotting away in a hidden corridor of the school."
  • leo: "what are we gonna do in this class WITHOUT a token stoner?!"
  • virgo: "can you fucking imagine getting arrested at build-a-bear?"
  • libra: "haha, yeah i play sports. SIKE i'm an art student, asshole."
  • scorpio: "i was gonna bring the baby head in today, but i forgot."
  • saggitarius: "we have like no supervision. let's do something dangerous like plugging something into an outlet."
  • capricorn: "sir, i have clinical depression."
  • aquarius: "what about that tower you built out of baby legs?"
  • pisces: "we're having an intellectual discussion on the quality of the shrek movies."

I’m pretty sure that Moana’s going to win the academy award for best animated movie and I’m pretty sure I’m going to love the movie when I do watch it, but I really hope people don’t forget about Kubo and I really want Kubo and the Two Strings to win the award this year because Laika and other non Disney movies deserve that award too

Honestly Mulan and Disney’s treatment to of that character is so fascinating to me bc like to me it’s like 2 separate Disneys

there’s the Disney that made and distributed a movie for kids that encouraged them to not let their full potential go to waste by worrying about what makes others happy or comfortable, or underestimate themselves or others

aaaaaand then there’s the Disney that only sells the image of Mulan in her matchmaker outfit. The outfit that represented how impossibly hard it was for her to conform to expectations that others forced on her.

Like, even little kids understand “this is the outfit she wore when she was the most sad” Tbh it made no sense to me as a kid I was like “Why did they make THIS the doll and why is she suddenly so content in this outfit now?”

I just read an article about the live-action Mulan remake, and the director said that so far, there are no plans to include the musical numbers. She also described it as a "girly martial arts extravaganza" and that bothers me soooooo much. This is the first live-action princess remake that has poc main characters and it feels like being cheated. It's so rare for asians to be in musicals.

I AGREE WITH YOU 100%!!! 

I mean Beauty and The Beast is the only live adaption film Disney has done so far that is a full out musical with the exception of The Jungle Book ft. like two songs in it. But Mulan is my all time favorite Disney movie, it was the epitome of my childhood. I think Mulan being a musical would be an incredible experience.

I think it is a shame that Asians do not get enough credit when it comes to art because I can think of so many talented people I know who are incredibly talented martial artists, dancers, singers, actors, artists, etc. I think Mulan could definitely showcase all of that if it was going to be a musical!!! I can just imagine how cool the choreography would be for I’ll Make a Man Out of You and I cannot believe we’re missing out on that!

And you’re right! It is rare for Asians to be in musicals. I think Lea Salonga has definitely helped paved way for Asians on Broadway (she was in Les Miserables! That’s a super white musical! She’s also the singing voice of Mulan too) + Phillipa Soo has also been killing it on Broadway with Great Comet, Hamilton, and Amelie under her belt. But in a mainstream setting, I think it’s still difficult to find a musical that has exclusively Asian roles like Allegiance, Miss Saigon, or The King and I (and believe it or not some productions still cast WHITE PEOPLE to play King Mongkut or even have an entire cast that’s white…). 

Also I agree, I think the director Niki Caro could have described the film better. The full context of the quote is “But the budget and the location and the story is offering such scope to me for [an] incredible, muscular piece of girly martial arts extravaganza in China. And I can’t wait.” (Disney’s Live-Action ‘Mulan’ Will Be a ‘Girly Martial Arts Extravaganza’). And I think calling it a “muscular  piece of a girly martial arts extravaganza in China” is so cringeworthy. Mulan defied the idea that women and men are not confined to their gender normative or traditional values. It’s clear Caro is trying imply that Mulan is masculine but also feminine but conveys it poorly. If it was spoken about a man, the quote wouldn’t say “muscular piece of manly martial arts extravaganza”, it would just say “martial arts extravaganza” because men are already inherently assumed to be muscular and masculine.

Sometimes, people just love to be stupidly hating.

It causes me a great pain to see people freaking out about Thrawn dying (even though writers flat out stated that he is in for a long game) 

Or how some people were questioning Rogue One even after it came out.

Like they are ready to jump on the gun, to blame and hate Disney for simply owning Star Wars now. Yes, Rebels is child-friendly show, but with a lot of context that only adults and teenagers would understand. Does that make it bad or worse than some shows out there? No.

Look at Rogue One, like it’s really freaking dark, and it was supposed to be lighter in tone. Disney didn’t really interfere. So is Rogue One a bad movie? No.

Get your heads out of your asses, guys. Hating on something aiming towards kids and movies made by complany specializing in making things for children is ouright ridiculous and childish.

Now I do realize that people love Thrawn (even those who didn’t know about it him until Rebels), Lucasfilm characterized him, gave him a whole book and probably even more seasons of Rebels.

But this love also becomes a source of toxic comments like:
“Thrawn dies - Rebels dies” or “Thrawns dies - Rebels isn’t canon anymore”.

Like really?

Also, some people say: “The Rebels are going to win. Like they always did.”

Haha, remember The Clone Wars main characters (except Ahsoka and Rex) losing and dying because of plot armor? Yeah, me neither.

Rebels Season one finale - Rebels do win. Tarkin lost his Star Destroyer. Grang inquisitor died.

Rebels season two finale - Rebels have lost, flat out. Ahsoka is lost to them. Kanan got blinded, Ezra nearly wiped his friends and villains out by activating the temple.

Who knows what the hell is going to happen this time? Nobody. Writers usually outdo themselves with finales, would it be either TCW or Rebels.

“Janna Ordonia! You stand accused by the high council of illegal genetic experimentation!” Hekapoo called down to her. “How do you plead?”

“Not guilty!” Janna insisted. “My experiments are only theoretical! And completely within legal bounds!” She assured.

“We believe you actually created something.” Hekapoo narrowed her eyes and gasps filled the courtroom. Janna scoffed.

“Created something! Ha! That would be irresponsible and unethical!” She explained. “I would never, EVER-“ a cage being unveiled in the courtroom cut off Janna. Inside was a purple alien with three eyes and horns. Louder gasps filled the court as they saw this creature paw at the cage. Janna bit her lip and continued. “Uh… Make more than one?” She tried.

The creature yelled and growled, trying to get out of the age. He hissed and let out gurgles. “What is that monstrosity!” Hekapoo cried.

“Monstrosity?” Janna seemed offended. “What you see before you is the first of a new species! I call him experiment 626! He’s bulletproof, fireproof, can see in the dark! And possesses the power to control the element of FLAMES!” Janna cackled and threw her head back. “His only instinct is to destroy EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES!” Janna yelled.

“So it IS a monster.” Hekapoo narrowed her eyes and Janna shrugged.

“Just a little one.” She assured.

“It’s disgusting!”

“A freak!”

“Kill it!”

“A monster!”

Everyone in the court yelled and screamed before Hekapoo silenced them. “Calm yourselves! Perhaps he can be reasoned with.” She suggested. And then addressed the monster. “Experiment 626, give us some sign you understand any of this. Show us there is something inside you that is good.” She begged. The monster turned around and cleared his throat. Everyone leaned forward in anticipations and 626 opened his mouth.

“IKNA AMA FISTA!” 626 screamed in some alien language. Everyone in the court gasped and he laughed evilly.

“I didn’t teach him that!” Janna insisted. 626 hissed and screamed, trying to claw at the cage. He was ignited and spreading his flames around the cage, yelling and laughing like he was an evil monster.

“Place that idiot scientist under arrest!” Hakapoo yelled. Janna was cuffed and as she was carted away she yelled back;

“I prefer to be called an EVIL GENIUS!” She yelled.

“And as for that, it has no place among us.” Hekapoo said in reference to the monster. “It is the product of a deranged mind.” She looked over at Rhombulus. “Take him away.” She instructed. Rhombulus nodded and crystallized the monster, carting him off to be destroyed. They put the creature in his crystal in a secured room of the ship.

“He is to be sent off to sent a drift on an abandoned asteroid.” He explained to the other guards. He took a seat in his chair only to hear an alarm go off.

“THE MONSTER IS LOOSE!” The captain cried.

“How?!” Rhombulus demanded.

“He melted through the crystal! We didn’t know he could burn so hot!” She explained. “He’s loose on deck C!” She told everyone. “Red alert! Have all stations on deck C!” She rounded up the troops and they all followed her to find the monster. The platoons dashed up the steps to the next deck, but then they got there a vent was bent out of place and the monster was no place to be seen.

“I… don’t think he’s on the ship anymore…” A soldier spoke. There was noise coming from the emergency shuttles and they all looked out the window to see one flying hectically.

“Confirmed!” The captain cried. “He’s taken a police cruiser!” She yelled at the troops and they all ran to other cruisers to try and shoot him out of the sky. Her right hand man sighed and looked out the window again.

“Yeah…. He took the red one.” He stated in a monotone voice.

The soldiers chased the monster down in the other cruisers and shot at him. 626 laughed diabolically and flew hazardously in between asteroids and planets as he was shot at. All of the sudden he lurched forward and sirens started going off.

“He’s hit!” A soldier called through the intercom. “His engine is shot he’s going down on a nearby planet!” She screamed.

“All back to the ship!” The captain commanded.

Everybody on board looked at the monitor tracking 626 with horror, waiting to see where the evil thing would land. They saw the planet on the monitor and Hekapoo looked at the others. “What is that?” She asked, pointing to the map of the planet. The captain reported.

“Water, most of the planet is covered in it.” She responded.

“He won’t survive in water. He has a molten structure, he’ll go out!” She grinned. They watched the ship approach the body of water and gasped when it struck an island. Hekapoo punched the monitor and growled. “Of course.” She muttered. “We have no choice! We have to gas the planet.”

“HOLD IT! Hold on hold everything!” A voice interrupted. Hekapoo turned around to see a blonde girl with her arms full of papers. “I’m Star Butterfly, the specialist for this planet. It’s called earth and it’s home to the mosquito! The endangered species!” She yelled.

“Star Butterfly?” Hekapoo asked. Star nodded. “Are these… mosquitos an important animal for the intergalactic food chain?” She asked. Star looked offended.

“CRUCIAL!” She exclaimed. “We can’t gas the planet or islands! It’s a registered wildlife reserve!” She cried.

“Well a single assassination of 626 requires information about him we do not yet understand.” Hekapoo explained. “Somebody close to the monster to take him down, and who do you think we should send?” Hekapoo asked. Star was silent for a moment.

“Does he have a brother?”

——————————————————————————————————————————–

Star followed Hekapoo through the prison. They passed cells and cells of inter dimensional crooks and criminals. When Hekapoo came to the right cell she opened the door to see Janna already smirking. “He got away?” She asked. Hekapoo narrowed her eyes.

“This comes as no surprise to you I’m sure.” Hekapoo responded. Janna snickered and nodded.

“I designed 626 to be an unstoppable force!” She cried. “I know him better than you, I should understand why he escaped.”

“Good. Then you go find him.” Hekapoo demanded. Janna made a face.

“No! You stole my creation! He’s your problem now. I warned you.” Janna crossed her arms and turned away.

“Then I’ll make you a deal.” Hekapoo spoke. “626 for your freedom. Bring him in and you are free to go, and your rank as a royal scientist will be restored.” Hekapoo promised. Janna smiled and turned around.

“Now that is interesting.” She grinned. “You have a deal Hekapoo.” She shook the deity’s hand. Star gasped and grabbed Hekapoo but the shoulder.

“You can’t send her there! Janna is a crazy person!” Star screamed quietly. “Who will keep her in check?” She asked. Hekapoo smiled.

“You.” She told her. Star jumped and tried to protest, but Hekapoo was already gone. Star whirled around and saw the alien girl in the prison jumpsuit.

“So, miss Star Butterfly, tell me where my monstrosity has been unleashed.”

Gay LeFou

Okay, I need to join this discussion, because it’s driving me insane! I have ACTUALLY SEEN Beauty and the Beast at a press screening on Tuesday, so I know what I’m talking about.

SPOILERS ahead!

Many people will be disappointed by the “gay representation” of this movie because it’s hardly there. The only thing you get to see is LeFou dancing with a man at the end for like 2 seconds and smiling. Disney isn’t progressive for doing this and it feels like a cop-out to please audiences who want more diversity without actually giving it to them.

(There might be another gay character that is hinted at in “Bonjour”, but maybe I’m over-interpreting this.)

It’s okay to be upset that there wasn’t any Lumière/Cogsworth romance. (I mean I would prefer a little poly relationship with them including Plumette, because she’s adorable, but you know…) They could’ve done that and it would have been cute.

BUT do not insult my sweet baby child LeFou, because you feel like he was the “wrong person” to be gay! He is a treasure and I love him. FIGHT ME!

The character is very different from the old movie:

1. He is NOT an idiot!

He’s actually pretty smart, giving some witty comments that usually go over Gaston’s head. His character has a lot of depth and undergoes some serious character development in the movie.

He makes fun of the girls who swoon over Gaston and is never shown really crushing on Gaston. The only thing you might see as a slight exaggeration is the song at the tavern. But I’d want someone like that who bribes an entire tavern to sing and dance to cheer me up.

2. There are no jokes about him liking Gaston. The only person who makes jokes about him is Gaston and this is seen as proof for Gaston’s abusive personality.

3. His relationship with Gaston changes

At first he admires him (and probably Gaston’s confidence). But over the course of the movie LeFou realizes that Gaston is a bad person and doesn’t actually care for him. He even admits in the end that he’s done with Gaston and helps the inhabitants of the castle.

Tl;dr: The movie doesn’t do a good job on LGBTQ+ representation, but don’t blame that on LeFou!

Y'all need to go see Moana!!!

Y'all listen, Moana is the best movie of the year (okay tied with Fantastic Beasts for me cause I’m HP trash)!!! And frankly the best Disney movie since like Mulan or Lilo and Stitch!!! I straight up cried through half the movie?????

Like at one point I was crying because her hair is just like mine and I’ve never seen any animated character with hair like mine before!!!

Honestly esp if you’re a POC you HAVE to watch Moana!!!! It’s so good!! Legit like only one death, 0 white people, Dwayne The Rock Johnson, and of course fuckin Moana the fierce but kind heroine!!! I literally love her so much and I would do anything for her. I can’t wait for another movie!!! (PS she would be a hufflepuff!!! You can FITE me if you disagree)

I honestly can’t even begin to describe how much I loved this movie!!!!!!

I will be deleting any asks that state things like this because first of all:
•I do not belong to the ddlg community
•My bio specifically states that “I do not belong to any community” if you would bother to read it
•I strictly only post sfw things so I do have the right
•I will not listen to anyone who tells me that I am too young to like stuffed animals, coloring, Disney movies, or anything that is deemed “childish”
•I call my age regression little space, so do not comment on it
•I call my boyfriend Daddy and that means something entirely unique to me
•And lastly, DO NOT EVER TELL ANYONE THAT THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS, that goes for everyone, you do not know that person or the relationship they have with others, too many people are told that they don’t know what love is, when you probably don’t even know what it is yourself.

As stated anyone who sends messages like this it will be deleted and I hope you have a good day.

I need to explain something here.

Now you guys know I don’t have a lot of love for Frozen but I do understand why some people are defensive of Elsa. When you have a charecter you like, you want to defend them. That’s natural. However, with that being said, that’s no reason to rain on people’s parade when it comes to Moana.

The main reason people want Moana to out do Frozen is becuase this might be the only way to get merchandise from the movie. Disney does not give their POC lead movies a lot of love. You can deny it but it’s true. Tiana just got merchandise at Hot Topic but now, the only thing left is a shirt with Dr. Facilier on it and almost all the Big Hero 6 merch is of Baymax. Not Hiro, the lead of the film, but Baymax. Don’t get me wrong, I adore Baymax but both he and Hiro should be getting equal treatment. 

Oh and Mulan? Can’t find anything with her save for a Funko Pop. You want Jasmine? Sorry, all you get is a doll. Pocahontas? She’s got jack squat.

People want Moana outshine Frozen so they won’t forget her. They do this all the time when it comes to their movies featuring POC leads and it’s not fair, especially when the movies do well. Moana, if it does well, should be treated with the same love and respect Frozen got. Why shouldn’t it? If the movie is critically and commercially successful, then it should be showered with love.

And if Moana does well, that means we could get more diverse Disney films! So yeah people have a reason for wanting Moana to do better than Frozen. And they’re pretty decent reasons if you ask me.
