Let us not forget the X in the middle of xbox controllers.
I would honest to god love to hear your thoughts on Brave. I mean, I didn’t like it either but I just really wanna know why you didn’t.
I’m glad you asked because I’ve wanted to talk about this for a while but everyone seems to love it and I don’t want to like…seem like a party pooper or whatever but yeah.
First, let me say. Despite my feeling that Brave was TOTALLY overrated, I don’t dislike, or feel negatively towards anyone for LIKING brave. You’re ALLOWED to like Brave. I didn’t really find anything problematic or wrong about its message, I just straight up didn’t like it.
Pixar had been boring me for a while, to be honest. I LOVE Pixar movies like the Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Bugs Life was my childhood for a period of time, okay? People think that because I like Dreamworks I hate Pixar and thats like…stupid.
I think my biggest issue with Brave was how misleading it was. I got this epic title, an epic teaser, and epic setting, Highlands of Scotland? Hell yeah. I WANT this.
I WANTED SO DEARLY to like Brave. I didn’t go into this like “I’m not gonna like it!” No. Brave had the perfect set up.
Enter: The actual plot.
I was expecting epicness, I was expecting Merida to be a badass “brave” Scottish warrior. What I got was “My mums a bear”.
Elanor was the best character in that whole damn movie and she could only growl for most of it. I love Elanor. Not enough to save Brave for me, but all hail the Queen, I love Elanor, I love her husband. Merida I’m eh on. She was a brat in the beginning, she learned her lesson, I realize it was hard on her, I wouldn’t want to be in her situation either. I still have a hard time actually liking the girl. But thats not why I didn’t like Brave.
I felt like Brave never really took off. My friend described it as a song where youre waiting for the bass to drop and sooner or later is over halfway through the song and you realize its never actually going to drop.
The villain/bear/thing wasn’t nearly involved enough to make that last fight feel…big.
When it comes down to it, I guess thats it.
Brave lacked a BIGness for me. Maybe that wouldn’t be such a big deal, if it didn’t present itself as a movie that was going to be filled with…Bigness.
While I sometimes disagree strongly with Nostalgia Critic, he made a point that, it was so built up, but Merida never actually DID anything all that amazing. And I kinda felt that. Shes a BADASS with a bow. I was wondering where that all went in the second half of the movie. I was expecting her to kick the ass and reign supreme with that thing and she never really did.
So yeah. Maybe I wouldn’t be as frustrated if I wasnt expecting so much MORE.
Was Brave a bad movie, no. Hell no it wasn’t a bad movie. But Wreck it Ralph deserved the Oscar. Rise of the Guardians didn’t even get nominated. I know it has issues, but Brave was hardly a better movie, I’m sorry. That might just be bias. But I’m still pissed off about that. I had more fun watching ParaNorman than I did watching Brave. ParaNorman was great. Fuck all yall.
Maybe I’m just butthurt because I find it overrated. And im sure someone is going to argue with me on this.
I don’t care.
You wont make me like Brave.
Brave isn’t a bad movie. You aren’t bad for liking it. Let me not like it. Please.
This is everything I felt but just never got out in one big breath. I went into that theater all pumped up and came out with a shrug and an: 'at least the animation was lovely'.
Thank you for sharing.
Our mental synchronization can have but one explanation!
I was just listening to one of my favourite songs from Wicked on youtube and one of the comments calls Fiyero “Enjolras” and I just about died.
i will never not reblog this
Dr. Seuss was a racist. He wouldn’t attach his words to an interracial romance. Here are seven racist cartoons he made about Japanese-Americans during WWII.
He also later apologized and wrote Horton Hears a Who! to illustrate his remorse for his previous way of thinking
Some doodles from last night I guess.
omg they are so offended if you lick them back.
Fun fact! Dogs lick the mouths of those they consider higher in rank! So if you lick them back, they are not offended, they just don’t see themselves as higher than you and they are confused! The second dog must be a very loyal dog because he or she literally refuses to be licked back haha! I love dogs.
i started reading that expecting an angry rant and it turned out to be one of the nicest things ever.
I have reblogged this like ten times
My cat grooms me. What does that mean?
It means your cat thinks your style is wack and is trying to help
