Visions from the road not taken..........
In a time of increasing tensions between literally everyone, let me wish all of you a Merry Christ-Hanukkah-mas, and a Happy Rama-kwanza-Dan
Many adults (including me, 23 y/o) on social media have talked about how they have a crush on Gwen from Spiderverse. Even though she is meant to be a teenager in the story, she is voiced by a woman in her mid-twenties and her design even passes for being an adult most of the time. I and many others have also found comfort in her as a trans-coded character and relate deeply to her experience of isolation. Is this something I need to fix about myself? I NEVER feel attracted to real teenagers but in animation the line between teenager and 20-something often feels blurred.
So I just got done seeing wish, and as usual, self righteous critics and movie reviewers on Youtube, etc. are lambasting it because they just want something to complain about to fill their pockets. Masking it behind “Valid” or “Objective” opinions to make it seem like they care, when in reality, they don’t. But i’m here for the people. The people that DO care. People take movies too seriously nowadays, judging them on a scale of good or bad, ignoring that they were meant to entertain and bring joy to people, not to be shamed for existing. And either the people that do this do or don’t understand that it’s hurting the thing that brings you this entertainment. Grow up, get over yourself, and don’t be selfish & evil to the point where you’re happy to see something that has brought joy to billions of people just die, without any concern with how it will affect those involved, or those it affects. If you wanna have these opinions, that’s perfectly fine. Everyone is entitled to it, but keep it to yourself, because people who watch those reviews or videos will change their opinion to match the creator they look up to so dearly. They’ll do it EVERY time. Negativity & Positivity is simple psychology. We want to stay away from things that are negative, which include those heartless reviews. Silence is golden, and ignorance is bliss.
Now on to the movie: I’d highly been anticipating Wish for quite a while, and TL;DR, it’s an incredible way to celebrate Disney’s 100 years of bringing magic and joy to all! The movie didn’t disappoint in the slightest. So, let’s go over my points.
Story: The story has this fresh amalgam of classic and modern Disney. It’s nice to finally see another villain, which while the recent movies didn’t have much in the way of antagonists, were still good in their own right. They do a nice job of making what feels like a Disney Origin story that feels like both a celebration, while also not feeling forced with references up the wazoo for fanservice. Yes, there are indeed references, given what the film is celebrating, but it doesn’t feel forced and the film is also able to stand on it’s own without it just being something to celebrate 100 years. It was interesting to see Magnifico’s point of view on why he kept the wishes locked away after what he’d been through, only to be corrupted by the magic he had sealed away when it felt like he had no other choice to defend his kingdom, contrasted by Asha wanting to give the wishes back to the people so they can work towards it and achieve their goals organically. Also, no, Asha is not the real villain, get your head out of your ass.
Music: This is by far the best part of the movie in my eyes, almost every song in this movie is an absolute banger, from “What I Know now” (which is my personal favorite) to “The Thanks I Get” to Rosa’s Introductory theme, a large portion of the songs had clear passion and effort put into them.
Dialogue: Perfectly Servicable.
Characters: Asha was a perfectly serviceable protagonist, and I know people are gonna be bitching and whining that “Oh ShE’s JuSt AnOtHeR qUiRkY fEmAlE pRoTaGoNiSt 0/10!!!!!” But Mirabel and others have done this as well, and they were seen as passable, so shut the fuck up with your stupid ass. You wanna be different so bad. Magnifico Was an Interesting Antagonist because we got to see through his point of view. A magician that has the power to grant wishes to anyone he chooses, but is paranoid of those that would betray him because the wishes were too vague. That’s a seriously cool concept. I do wish he didn’t use the magic that corrupted him towards the film’s climax so we could’ve gotten to see a more human side of him, but i’m still fine with the version we got. The Star Was a cute comic Relief character that I will not stop Comparing To Kirby for the life of me and who I want a plushie of so badly, do it you cowards. The side characters were ok, but they served their purpose well enough. It’s in the name.
Editing: Perfectly Serviceable.
Animation: I hear some people compare this to Puss In Boot’s Artstyle, but everyone seems to think that the Last Wish was the best thing since Sliced Bread while this movie apparently did it without thought or care. I mean come on, This is Disney. Of course they’re going to put care into it.
Voice Acting: Perfectly Serviceable.
Overall, this movie is a solid 8.2 out of 10. Please spread the word of this film so that people can see it for themselves. It would be nice to not have another flop because people think that paying to go see a movie is the same as buying a house or a car. (Seriously what the fuck?)
excluding object shows
I personally enjoyed it so far but want to see your thoughts on it.
I'm gonna be honest I think the first 10 episodes of Avatar are the worst and 6/10's at best but 4/10's at worst
Hello, its been several years i am searching for cartoon I dont exactly remember, as I was a kid. Probably 90-00 era, the only thing I remember is forest, small wind around, violets on the ground and they were fading away when you step on them (or follow?). The main character I remember was a tree, a villain or maybe another creature under some magic spells, but when you stepped on violet flowers or something, tree started to die. The theme probably was adventurous, don’t remember really, but the style of cartoon drawing was like slow motion? Every movement was a little slow, in some places it also reminds me Hayao Miazaki drawing style? Would be really thankful if anyone remembers something similar from their childhood. Thank you!
Which of these three shows do you think is the Star Wars of animated shows?
Ever since the mid to late 2000s, most live action kids and family movies have had a PG-13 rating and they’ve been the most successful films at the box office. Despite this, there are extremely few mainstream animated movies with a PG-13 rating. So why are there no PG-13 rated animated movies?
