I’m a huge fan of Frozen and the fact that it wasn’t all about a girl being saved by a boy, but it’s hardly the first Disney movie to do that…
- Brave - Young girl saves her mother.
- Princess and the Frog - Girl saves boy
- Tangled - Girl saves boy
- Beauty and the Beast - Girl saves boy
- Alice in Wonderland - Girl saves herself
- Pocahontas - Girl saves boy (boy saves her dad)
- Atlantis - Girl saves entire city with a protective shield
- Mulan - Girl saves all of China
I’m laughing so hard at this post cuz its like “It’s just not right to call these two a ‘recolouring of one another’.”
because before I scrolled down to see it. I honestly thought it was either an;
- A. post about how pretty they were or
- B. talking about how fucking similar they were.
so its like rotfl, the point ur trying to make is that they aren’t a re-color cuz you didn’t really succeed imo. aside from the hair pictures I wasn’t 100 percent sure who the pictures were of (especially the mouth ones)
Yeah sure they act differently, and their hair is styled differently?? but on the whole their differences in character designs are extremely minor and laughable. Regardless of how much you like/dislike the movie.
oh man if I hadn’t read your post first I would have thought the same thing! lmao
That it’s highlighting how completely identical they are, minus the hair, and hair is the one things that changes in same face syndrome. and the thing is, 3D modeling and rigging are hard, yeah, and as we learned, Disney has a history of reusing animation and models to save time, which is great, but no one can deny the similarities.
I was looking at the comments on the Budweiser “Puppy Love” commercial and I should really know better than to look at YT comments by now, but one was:
Yes, for some strange, unknown reason, people are fond of animals. This poor person didn’t even know that until the internet. And Budweiser must have internet access as well because somehow they uncovered this information and exploited it, those bastards.
People are fond of animals. Wow.
every single goddamn female character has her beauty commented on by random guys
every one of them is apparently BEAUTIFUL~!
off the top of my head I can think of Nami, Robin, Tashigi, Camie, Hancock, Shirahoshi, and now Rebecca. There are doubtless others.
what males do I remember being called handsome?
Duval and white horse guy
and those were jokes
seriously, think. How out of place would it look if there were salivating girls with hearts in their eyes constantly commenting on how attractive all the guys were? And all the guys were scantily clad. constantly. And looked pretty much exactly the fucking same. Imagine Zoro walking around in nothing but a loincloth while every female perved over him. Looks a bit ridiculous, doesn’t it?
yes this is the bane of One Piece. Even though it’s written for a male audience, and this is how men act in real life, it still makes me wince. It’s not that there aren’t tough and awesome ladies in the series, because there are LOTS, but how many times has Nami been kidnapped and/or assaulted? Why has she worn nothing but a bikini top since the timeskip (give or take a couple of scenes or magical jackets, but she’s always back in the bikini as soon as possible)? And when was the last time the Straw Hat ladies got a proper fight, ESPECIALLY ROBIN, who arguably has one of the strongest and coolest powers in the whole series!? It’s really frustrating, and this arc especially provided a lot of fodder for the never-ending discussion of sexism in One Piece.
I have a friend that I really like, but she is super social, and I am obviously not, and while I like to hang out with her, usually whenever I say yes to one of her events it grows more and more uncomfortable for me and now it’s happening again.
This time she invited me to a skate night with some of her other lady friends. So first of all, while I remember enjoying ice skating when I was young, I haven’t done it for 20 years and I don’t like the idea of being around huge crowds of people and falling down, but I was like well suck it up it might be fun. But then all her friends were like oh I’m going to bring my boyfriend, so now I’m going to be the only single person in the group. AND I just looked up the time we are supposed to go, and it’s called “teen skate” and if there’s one thing I hate more than being around crowds of people it’s being around crowds of teens. Arhhhh so once again something that is enjoyable for normal people has me in a big ball of nerves and anxiety and just wishing for it to be over before it’s even begun.
I dislike Eowyn and Faramir. The ship not the people (okay, Eowyn annoys me just a tad). But I feel that it has completely come out of nowhere. It doesn’t appear (to me) that they have any chemistry or “spark” and that it was just there for the sake of it.
Y’know you can defend the ship in the book without resorting to put down the movies.
I love Faramir/Eowyn. I will ship them to eternity and beyond, that is how much I love them. Do I wish they had more screen time in the movie to show how their relationship developed? Sure. Do I understand why it was mostly left out/relegated to a couple of scenes in the ROTK EE? Yep. Much as I love it, it was background and not key to moving the central plot of the story along, which was the main characters of the Fellowship. Let’s remember that the movies are constrained by the time factor. In fact I recall an article some many moons ago (back in early 2003) where Miranda Otto mentioned something about seeing Eowyn’s wedding dress.
That being said, oh my GOD, OP, have you not read the books?! Have. You. Not. Read. The. Books!? Faramir’s courting of Eowyn pretty much raised my standards in a potential partner. It’s like, That. That is the bar, it’s pretty high up there, and if you can’t reach it, go home. It annoys me when people say he rescued her or tamed her. He did no such thing. He helped her out of a dark place, turned her towards the light and let her make the decision. He placed the power of choice in her hands, and he did not judge her for the choices she had already made.
"out of nowhere"? They had 2 1/2 to 3 chapters showing how their relationship developed! In the story itself, not relegated to an Appendix.
Yeah, ok I’m done
