"Gay people are ruining the sanctity of marriage"
Before I had tumblr I had no idea there were any sexualities other than heterosexual and homosexual. I never considered gender inequalities still existed.
That doesn’t mean I was purposely trying to discriminate or upset people.
There is a difference between being just ignorant of something and purposefully discriminating.
Give someone a chance to learn and be enlightened before you slam them as rude, horrible people
Just watched “The Book of Life”
The visuals are amazing and the character designs just YES
The scenery is gorgeous and did I mention the visuals are so good
I must admit, some things annoyed me greatly *
cough*those song covers just irked me so much *cough*
Same with Xibalba, which is a place, not an actual deity but whatevs. I have some issues with the script and storytelling
like how Maria was supposed to be oh-so-independent but really wasn’t
Everything looked so pretty and the colours and ooh
I loved everything in the visuals.
Review: The Book of Life
If there’s anything to take away from The Book of Life, it’s the fantastical visual palette the film works with. Playing around with the imagery of Mexico’s The Day of the Dead, the film has a visual splendor that’s hard to find in a lot of animated output these days. The color design especially is breathtaking to watch in the lively ways it all comes together to accentuate the larger than life character designs.
Less breathtaking though is the storytelling work, which seems to come straight from the school of “every Dreamworks film ever”. Instead of anything interesting, we just get a bunch of random pop songs thrown into the score that pretend to be jokes and female characters that mention one feminist ideology (“we exist outside of men!”) so that the film can pretend it is providing strong female rolemodels for children. It’s dull, stagnant, tired storytelling and at a certain point it began to infuriate me that this is the best that children’s movies seem to be able to offer on a consistent basis nowadays.
I love the good animated visuals, Hollywood. Now let’s work on creating some great characters to go with them.
