People also seem to forget that the movie was nominated for like three Oscars.


But it’s just not that good! BECAUSE… because… The songs? oh wait that’s the reason they were nominated…

Cyber harassment study reveals the unsurprising!
It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…

That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.

"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”
"Aha! We knew it!" 
“Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”
"Wait, what?"

"It breaks my heart that few people like Tiana. I’m 26 years old and can remember crying myself to sleep as a child because I had to be Nala to play princess with my friends. She’s beautiful and what young black girls like me needed long, long ago"

it breaks my heart that Princess and the Frog was such a mediocre movie.

ok what the fuck no. Princess and the Frog was NOT a mediocre movie. AT ALL.
its the fact that society and media make it seem like it was, mostly because of the fact that Tiana was black. The Princess and the Frog was an excellent movie, and I fucking bet you that if Tiana was white, that movie would be seen as one of Disney’s best in recent years.
So no, Princess and the Frog was not a fucking mediocre movie whatsoever 

Lets also mention that Disney did not market this movie at all! I barely saw any commercials for it.


Yeah the only commercial I really remember was her looking up at the stars. It was a good movie,  Tiana was an interesting character and showed how black women were treated then and probably now (how the two white dudes didn’t think someone of her “background” aka race would be able to manage something like pay the rent for a restaurant) you know what was a mediocre movie though, a certain overrated film that won’t die

(Not Disney related, sorry. But cartoon related!) Checked your tag, and I didn't see anything. Any thoughts on The Book of Life?

the animation looks really cool, not sure about anything else yet… I think if it does really well it will likely influence other film companies into pushing more Latin@ inclusive plots etc…

having two dudes fight over a beautiful girl isn’t exactly the sort of progressive plot narrative I bite my nails in anticipation for, though, even if the ending ends up being some plot-twisty “woo hoo she chooses/saves the person herself” thing or, whatever

I don’t have good feelings about it from the trailer. For one, it’s being marketed for Halloween, and the conflation of el Día de los Muertos and Halloween is problematic to begin with. Secondly, the skull design seems like it’s being co-opted into a kinda… zombie-ish thing? Could be wrong, but that’s what I picked up from the trailer. Others have said it looks pretty white-ifyied. Yes, there are many white Latin@s. However, if there’s going to be a movie that’s specifically set with Latin@ imagery and characters, it would be damn nice if they didn’t play favorites with light skin.

I would likely be blown away if it was a culturally sensitive film in totality, tbh

we’ll see I guess!

The movie is being created and produced by two Mexicans jsyk.

I am a bit disappointed that this is being marketed to Halloween, but I believe it’s to try and make it more USAfriendly (still gross, but not done under the thoughts of white people thinking Dia de Los Muertos is the same as Halloween, though it might unfortunately spread it)

Yeah… I would say… let’s keep an open mind until it comes out! I can certainly see where some parts of the trailer/marketing are questionable so far, but I don’t get the feeling that it’s a total throwaway the way some movies have been.

I didn’t know that two Mexicans had produced it but we Mexicans have a huge problem with colorism. It’s pretty easy to see when watching novelas, the lighter skinned people are the main characters and the darker skinned people are the maids, and no afro Latinx that I can remember. I still have hope for this movie though

paperdemons:

Friendly reminder that Dia de Los Muertos is pretty much a funeral, and the dead being represented in the holiday are actual dead people who had families and friends and hopes and dreams. So just as you wouldn’t throw on black clothes and join a group of mourners because they look so fashionable in black, you shouldn’t paint your face and put marigolds in your hair and make altars because it looks cool to you. Thank.

Lets also look that a vast chunk of the line up is white. There are 12 princesses and like nine of them are white. That's a bit unbalanced right?

xawesomeangelx:

Yup and people will use the “well back then people were really racist so of course they wouldn’t have poc” for the older princesses so then that makes you wonder why we still don’t have proper representation

Not only that but fairy tales don’t have historical boundaries. They’re fiction! Is having POC really that hard?

But the real place that the story is based on doesn’t have any poc!! I mean I’ve never been to that place but I just know! !!

So Jen has to be a horrible actress because everyone sees and the actress agrees that her motives and choices are different from what you interpret them to be? You may be worse than the "all men are rapists" club. At least they tend to respect Opinions from those who know better. Or at least more often than you do. As a hook hater even I'm ashamed of this.


justkillianthings:

Um, no, I never said she was a horrible actress or person. I said I was disappointed in her for saying that “everyone is entitled to their opinions” while dismissing someone’s opinion that Emma’s kiss with Hook was not “hot”; rather it was disappointing that she’s needed to use her sexuality to stop him from pestering her. 

Kindly read what I say instead of putting words in my mouth.

Also I’ve never heard anyone say “all men are rapists” unless people keep pestering them saying that they do think that and they’re like okay sure all men are rapists leave me alone now

  • Guy in my class: Sir, what if we had a gay P.E. teacher? That'd be bad because he'd be looking at all the guys in shorts.
  • Teacher: You're assuming that all gay teachers are paedophiles.
  • Guy: Well...yeah.
  • Teacher: Carl I absolutely promise you that NO ONE in this school wants to have sex with you
