Things that I wanna say about Descendants 2:
THERE ARE SPOILERS HERE. I warned.
+ It was important how they showed that all of that pressure to be perfect was affecting Mal and Ben.
+ Ben had a lot of things to do all the time and he had no time to stay with his friends and Mal, it was clear that he was tired.
+ Mal was faking to be someone that she isn’t. After “Ways to Be Wicked”, in her interview, we can see how the reporters were asking things that were kinda disrespectful, like: “Did you imagine that you would be with a VK?” (to Ben), and come on, Mal had all the rights to get sad.
+ Mal wanted someone to listen to her, to understand her. She was screaming.
+ I don’t know why they are so against magic, but Mal is half-fairy, so she should use her magic.
+ That doesn’t mean that she was right in try to spell Ben, but all that she wanted was give him the perfect things. She was trying to be perfect to him (what she didn’t need to do!).
+ I really loved how they showed not only Mal’s insecurities, but Evie’s too. Evie was really afraid of coming back to the Isle Of the Lost. She didn’t want to be left there again. Evie was trying so hard to forget her past and focus on her life in Auradon now. She is a stylist, a designer. She’s very, very, talented.
+ But we all know that our past will always be part of us and it was important to make us what we are now.
+ I still don’t think that Carlos and Jane are the perfect couple, but they had one scene that I really thought it was important: when Jane hugged Carlos.
+ Not because it was cute, but because Carlos’ facial expression showed that he needed that. Not a girl. A hug. He hugged her in a way that I wished I could hug him too. We all know that Cruella abused him and that’s why he doesn’t wanna go back to the isle, and that scene showed that he needed affection.
+ Lonnie. That’s all. She is a badass. I had my issues with her before. I mean, of course I liked her in the first movie, but I didn’t like how she cared so much about her hair since she had potential to be more.
+ And guess what? She is so much more! She knows how to fight and how to use a sword better than all the boys in the team! This. Is. So. Important!
+ They showed how there is sexism in Auradon even after strong womans like Elsa, Merida, and Lonnie’s mother, Mulan. She saved China! And the boys like Chad act like this has no value!
+ I mean, she’s an excellent fighter, but they don’t want her in the team because she is a girl?! WHO THE FUCK WROTE THAT RULE BOOK?!
+ Let’s calm down and think… Why nobody is talking about how Chad was creepy and crazy?!
+ Audrey broke up with him and he went crazy. He has the key to Jay and Carlos’ room. How creepy is that?!
+ You know in Girl Meets World when Farkle says that if something bad happened to Lucas, he would be the president in his place with a creepy face? CHAD WAS THE SAME.
+ Like, he put a crown on his head and imagined that he was king. I MEAN, HIS FRIEND WAS KIDNAPPED AND HE WAS THINKING ABOUT TAKING HIS PLACE!
(I need to calm down. Omg, I have a lot to write…)
+ Uma is amazing. I’m in love with her. And she is not evil. I know, she kidnapped the king of Auradon, but what I love about her is that all that she wants is let everyone of the isle be free. I don’t think she cares about taking over Auradon she just wants to be free.
+ Her conversation with Ben was very deep. She said that the isle is a prison, and who wouldn’t be angry in her place? The movie is 6 months after that the rotten four chose good, and they didn’t do anything to take other villain kids out of the isle, and Ben didn’t do anything too.
+ They really were the forgotten villain kids. Uma, Harry, Gil, Dizzy. All of them.
+ You know what I loved? The chemistry between Uma and Harry. It was very clear that he has a huge crush on her. My favorite scene was when he falls (in the ocean, I guess) and he calls Uma to help him. This happens when Mal and the other are running back to the limo and Uma could reach them. But she stopped. She stopped to help him. She didn’t need to do that, but she did.
+ Now, Gil. I love him, I wanna protect him. He’s so happy, he has no idea about what is happening all the time! He keeps calling Uma “shrimpy”, and when Harry pulls him out of the restaurant is amazing!
+ It’s like Harry is saying: “You are going to sit here for five minutes and think about what you said to my darling Uma, did you get it? Don’t you dare go back there before the time is over!”.
+ Gil is so precious <3
+ DIZZY IS SO CUTE!
+ SHE’S GOING TO AURADON! IT WAS SO CUTE HOW SHE SCREAMED AND HUGGED THE MAN, HOW SHE LOVES EVIE, HOW SHE’S SO HAPPY AND FULL OF JOY!
+ And Evie. I love Evie so much that I wish I could hug her! She wants to take care of the kids, she wants them to have a better life, she’s Ben counselor, she loves Dizzy and wants to protect her as a sister.
+ I loved how we saw Uma with tentacles. How we saw Mal turn into a dragon. I loved how Ben enters in a “beast mode” sometimes.
+ JAY. JAY IS A BIG BROTHER TO MAL.
+ It was clear how he was able to attack Harry if he did anything to Mal while he was singing his part in “It’s Going Down”, and when he said that he could drive Mal to the isle if she wanted. He wants to see her happy.
+ And he gave up of being captain of the team so Lonnie could finally be on the team, because he knew that she deserved to be there.
+ The rotten four are family. They will always be. I love how Carlos remembered Mal and Evie that.
+ And we had Doug’s insecurities too. He’s afraid of don’t be enough to Evie, he’s so sweet!
+ This movie gave me so many ships, OMG
+ Evie x Ben (matching clothes, come on!) / Uma x Ben / Dizzy x invitation to Auradon / Jay x Lonnie / Mal x Uma…
+ Gaston still wants Belle and kill Adam/Beast. And Gil says that so calm, I love him.
+ SPACE BETWEEN IS SO CUTE AND GAY, I REALLY THOUGHT THEY WOULD KISS 2 TIMES DURING THE SONG.
+ I’M DISAPPOINTED.
+ BUT MAL AND BEN KISSED 2 TIMES.
+ I SCREAMED AND SCARED MY MOTHER.
+ NO, I DON’T REGRET IT.
I guess that’s all for today. I wrote so much, OMG.
Sorry guys, but I’m so in love with this movie. But I know I’m not the only one.
Have a nice day, guys. I love you all <3
