I'M DONE WITH THIS BULLSHIT : GIANT RANT AND A MESSAGE ABOUT SUPPORT
This recent news about DreamWorks Animation has my blood boiling and you know what that means: TIME FOR A FUCKING RANT.
Like I’ve said many times before here up on my Tumblr, I’m a huge supporter of DreamWorks Animation and I will support them till the day I die. I went to the midnight showing of HTTYD2 when it came out last year and I went to go watch both Mr. Peabody & Sherman and Penguins of Madagascar in theaters. I’ve been doing my best to keep this company alive in any way that I can.
But I’m only 1 fan and I can’t support an entire industry by myself. Thank God I have my fellow fans of DreamWorks Animation to help me out with that but even with our numbers, people STILL aren’t going to watch their films in theaters.
Some make the excuse that it’s because they’re short on money and you know what: I get that. I come from a family living off of food stamps every month.
If you genuinely can’t spend any money on the theaters because you can’t afford it. By all means wait till it comes out on DVD and then you can watch it then. BUT DON’T PIRATE THE FUCKING MOVIE. It’s because the numbers aren’t adding up that DreamWorks Animation is shutting down an entire branch and laying off 500 crewmen from their team which is heartbreaking enough.
Some make the excuse of not being able to find someone to go with them: If you genuinely have that issue, drag one of your friends along and say to them that it can count as a birthday gift. Or better yet, just go by yourself you don’t need a fucking person there with you when you watch a movie in the theaters.
And then this fucking excuse comes up all the time where I’m from and I’ve seen this online multiple times that just boils my blood:
“I don’t want to go watch (Insert DreamWorks Animation Movie here) because DreamWorks Animation sucks and Disney is better."
NOW YOU’RE TREADING IN HOT WATER YOU MOTHERFUCKER.
ALL FORMS OF ANIMATION SHOULD BE RESPECTED AND SUPPORTED. WHETHER IT BE DISNEY, DREAMWORKS ANIMATION, LAIKA, REELFX, OR SONY ANIMATION. YOU FUCKING SUPPORT ANIMATION.
PEOPLE NEED A DIVERSITY IN ENTERTAINMENT AND I HATE TO SOUND LIKE A SALTY BITCH HERE, BUT PEOPLE RIDE DISNEY’S DICK FAR TOO OFTEN DUE TO A NOSTALGIA OVERLOAD THAT CREATED THEIR CHILDHOODS.
THAT’S NOT TO SAY THAT YOU CAN’T SUPPORT DISNEY, BUT WHEN PEOPLE COMMENT THAT THEY WON’T SEE A DREAMWORKS ANIMATION MOVIE BECAUSE THEY THINK ALL THEIR FILMS SUCK WITHOUT EVEN TRYING THEM IS JUST FUCKING IGNORANT. YOU’RE NOT CHANGING ANYTHING AND YOU’RE TOO AFRAID TO GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE!
BECAUSE OF PEOPLE’S BIASED LOVE AFFAIR WITH ONE ANIMATION COMPANY, OTHER COMPANIES WHO ARE PUTTING THEIR HEARTS AND SOULS INTO EACH FILM ARE BEING NEGLECTED AND BASHED WITHOUT EVEN AN ARM OF SUPPORT!
THAT’S JUST FUCKING WRONG.
HTTYD2 WON A FUCKING GOLDEN GLOBE BECAUSE IT FUCKING DESERVED IT MORE THAN BIG HERO 6 TO BE HONEST. DREAMWORKS ANIMATION HASN’T GOTTEN MANY AWARDS IN THE PAST AND THEY DESERVE SO MANY MORE AWARDS UNDER THEIR BELT THAN SOME ANIMATION COMPANIES WHO HAVE MULTIPLE.
PEOPLE ARE BUTTHURT OVER THE FACT THAT BIG HERO 6 DIDN’T GET AN AWARD BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT THAT THE PEOPLE JUDGING AND VOTING WERE RACIST TOWARDS THE POC CAST. WHICH MIGHT I ADD IS JUST BULLSHIT SINCE IT’S ONLY BY POPULAR VOTE BY THE PEOPLE THAT A FILM CAN WIN A GOLDEN GLOBE. BESIDES, DISNEY HAS ENOUGH AWARDS AS IT IS.
AND THEN SOME OF YOU MOTHERFUCKERS HAVE THE AUDACITY TO SAY: "WELL IF THEY’RE LAYING OFF PEOPLE IT MUST MEAN THAT THE MOVIE THEY PRODUCED SUCKED SO BADLY THAT NOBODY WANTED TO GO SEE IT."
HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU JUDGE THAT WHEN YOU YOURSELF HAVEN’T WATCHED THE FILM?!
UNLESS YOU’RE BLINDLY LED ALL THE TIME WHEN IT COMES TO MOVIES, YOU SHOULD TRY THINGS OUT YOURSELF FIRST BEFORE YOU PASS JUDGEMENT!
MIGHT I REITERATE A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED RECENTLY?!:
"HOME” THE MOVIE THAT WAS ORIGINALLY GONNA COME OUT THIS YEAR IS NOW BACK IN PRODUCTION.
HTTYD3 WON’T COME OUT UNTIL 2018
500 PEOPLE WERE CUT FROM HAVING JOBS
AN ENTIRE BRANCH WAS SHUT DOWN DUE TO THE LACK OF FUNDS ENOUGH TO KEEP IT GOING.
AND MANY OTHER PROJECTS HAVE BEEN SWITCHING DATES SINCE DREAMWORKS ANIMATION IS TRYING TO AVOID A CLASH WITH DISNEY FILMS BECAUSE OF BIASED ASSHOLES WHO’LL BOYCOTT THEIR FILMS TO GO WATCH A GENERIC ASS MOVIE THAT DOESN’T TAKE HUGE RISKS!
I’m sick and tired of having to explain all this shit to you guys out there and I’m sick of hearing the same old animation wars up on Tumblr. My heart can’t take the amount of heartbreak that I’m feeling right now because of the recent events revolving around one of my favorite animation companies.
All I’m asking in this rant is for people to go out and go support DreamWorks Animation in any way that you can starting this year.
Do you want to grow your Home Entertainment collection? Buy some DreamWorks Animation DVD / Blu-Ray’s of your favorite movies from them.
Do you want to grow your digital collection of DreamWorks Animation? Buy your favorite movies off of legally downloadable websites like iTunes where all of the funds go towards the company.
When a DreamWorks Animation movie comes out, you fucking take a risk and go watch it. Bring a big group of friends or go by yourself. It’s up to you but go support their films in theaters.
Let’s make a change here in 2015. Let this year be the year where we support the hell out of DreamWorks Animation so that way they don’t disappear off the face of the earth.
Let’s support animation in General
