I decided that maybe it would be a good idea to try to post every day. Or to at least try.
However, the post I had written for today is being postponed while I make sure I'm happy with it, and that it says what I need it to say.
So I'll just have to write another one. :)
I watched Big Hero 6 for the first time this afternoon. It is a really good movie, I liked its themes a lot (questioning use of violence, mainly) and it gave me feels. I have nitpicks about the story being so strongly about Hiro and (the robot) that the rest of the team could have been taken out and it wouldn't have affected the plot much - which would have been sad, because I really liked the team, especially Honey and GoGo. I think they may have made Honey darker-haired and darker-eyed for the DVD release?
There is an after-credits scene, and if you have seen the movie and haven't seen it, you need to.
The short that came with it, Feast, was gorgeous and gave me feels (and also DOGGY!), but was kinda misogynistic in the way stuff gets when no one questions the defaults that are being referenced.
I'm having brain-soup thoughts about violence in media, and the relationship between violence and power and gender (I also watched Snow White and the Huntsman again after Big Hero 6, and I'm on a temporary break from SVU), but I'm not sure I'll be able to get them coherent enough to make an actual post on it. Not right now, at least.
... And Somewhere Else the Tea's Getting Cold
Come on, Ace. We've got work to do.
