look i hate disney as much as the next guy, but cruella 2021 kinda slaps ngl
i think the most important thing to know is that this isn’t a bunch of people being like “let’s make a direct prequel for 101 dalmatians to explain why cruella likes skinning dalmatians and why she’s hashtag misunderstood”
it’s much more like “hey remember the crazy lady with the weird hair from that movie you watched twice as a kid? let’s do a batshit heist/devil wears prada movie vaguely inspired by her with a few goofy dalmatian references and some shared characters and basically nothing else to do with the original”
like do the dalmatians chase the mom off a cliff? yes
does this motivate cruella to hate dalmatians? no.
does this motivate her to want to kill them, skin them, or blame them for her mother’s death? no.
in fact, she blames herself, then the baroness, and ends up adopting the dalmatians with no intention of skinning them or any other dogs
is it still a goofy writing decision? absolutely. but it’s a goofy decision in a fun, goofy movie from a group of filmmakers about a thousand times more creative and interesting than those behind any of the other live action disney movies that i’ve seen
tbh i’d rather see a wacky batshit off-the-rails reimagining that at least makes SOME interesting decisions than a shot-by-shot remake like lion king 2019
Sorry loosing my mind at Phil setting up a play date between Wilbur soot, retired president and terrorist and Ranboo Beloved, rich husband with anxiety and memory loss because, and I quote “ranboos a little lonely”
Austin Powers adaptation that focuses on Austin's emotional reaction to being frozen for over 50 years. He tries to go find old friends and loved ones from his time, but they're all very old now and many of them no longer believe in the radical projects of the counterculture movement and are now actively working against the very things they fought for during the 60s. Meanwhile, he sees all around him people still fighting for the very same things against states that have become more and more effective at suppressing the radical leftist ideas that he holds dear. He becomes disillusioned with the cat and mouse game between himself and Dr. Evil, where an evil capitalist supported by the systems of the state fights against representatives of that same state. His dreams of a better world dashed by suppression, subversion, and apathy. Austin Powers then goes rogue, fighting against not only Dr. Evil, but the same secret government agencies he once allied himself with in an attempt to affect real change from outside the system. And also he fucks a woman named Peg Ingyu or some shit.
t4t couples aren't just two twink trans men dating. t4t couples look like any other couple - being t4t is for every trans person who finds comfort and peace and understanding with other trans people. t4t isn't aesthetics - for some, it's preference and for many, it's for survival and understanding.
Also, being t4t isn't predatory to trans people or fetishizing trans people. Trans people are allowed to seek out other trans people for understanding in a world where many do not understand or want to understand.
[ID: 3 edits of Tenzin from the Legend of Korra. In all 3, his skin is edited to be light brown, brown eyes, and a wider and flatter nose. In the first edit, he is shown from the chest up, facing the audience. He sits in a chair outside the Air Temple, holding his baby, Rohan. Tenzin looks at something off screen with a soft expression on his face. The second edit shows Tenzin from the shoulders up. He stands on the deck of Varrick’s ship, wearing a serious expression with his mouth open as he talks. The third shows Tenzin from the neck up. He raises an eyebrow in mild annoyance as he glances to the side, one eye only partially open. End ID.]
