BELL HAS A BAT
But still, why is the Pixar movie with the female lead a movie solely about female relationships?

Richard Lawson’s review of Brave

(via shiphassailed)

YEAH WE NEED MORE MEN MOVIES LIKE MAYBE A BUDDY COMEDY ABOUT A COWBOY AND AN ASTRONAUT OR MAYBE A MOVIE ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN A FATHER FISH AND HIS SON OR ANOTHER BUDDY COMEDY ABOUT TWO MONSTERS OR ANOTHER MOVIE ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP OF A FATHER FIGURE AND A YOUNG BOY

YOU’RE RIGHT, RICHARD, PIXAR DOESN’T REPRESENT NEARLY ENOUGH MALE RELATIONSHIPS

(via blankflank)

WOW WHAT KIND OF SOCIETY DO WE LIVE IN WHERE MOVIES ARE BEING MADE ABOUT WOMEN THAT PORTRAY THEM AS MULTIFACETED HUMAN BEINGS? OBVIOUSLY WOMEN ONLY EXIST TO INTERACT WITH MEN. WHY AREN’T THESE WOMEN IN THE KITCHEN MAKING SCOTTISH-TYPE SANDWICHES FOR THE MEN OF THE MOVIE? THE WORLD HAS GONE MAD.

I’m probably going to delete this later since I hate getting into these social justice discussions, but for the record did ANY OF YOU ACTUALLY READ THIS ARTICLE BEFORE DECLARING THE AUTHOR A SEXIST PIG.

 But still, why is the Pixar movie with the female lead a movie solely about female relationships? That seems like it could be a nice subplot, a teen and her mom coming to appreciate each other’s point of view, but the scope feels awfully small compared to, say, the softly profound rumination on time that is Toy Story 3, orRatatouille's deep and rich meditation on artistic conviction. That's not to denigrate this complex relationship, there's plenty there to mine, but as the main narrative thrust of the film, it feels a little thin.”

Merida is a fun, spirited character, and it would be nice to see her do and experience so much more than this essentially domestic drama allows.”

The quote is taken out of context. The author is stating how the plot of the movie is carried entirely on the mother-daughter relationship rather than using it, potentially more effectivly, as a subplot in order to widen the scope of the story.

 Its not that its a movie soley about relationships with females and not males, its a movie with nothing else to the story besides the relationship between the mother and daughter.
