I am disappointed that Saving Mr. Banks isn’t about Uncle Phil
30 days of disney; day 20 — an underrated movie: the rescuers down under
this movie is CRIMINALLY overlooked. it’s AMAZING. it came out right between the little mermaid and beauty and the beast, so right at the beginning of the disney renaissance, and it shows. the animation is glorious (glen keane in one of his oft-forgotten roles as head animator for marahute), the story is gripping and exciting, the characters are wonderful and the music is absolutely breathtaking. if you haven’t seen it in a while, you MUST. it’s one of my top favorite animated movies of all time.
wait wait wait wait wait a second
It’s never explained what happened to all of the animals that were captured by the poacher IT’S NEVER EXPLAINED
THEY ARE NEVER SEEN GOING BACK TO RESCUE THEM, A WHOLE BUNCH OF NAMED CHARACTERS WITH PERSONALITIES AND DIALOGUE, THAT SILLY FRILLED LIZARD DUDE INCLUDED, THEY JUST LEAVE THEM, WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM, DID THEY ALL STARVE TO DEATH IN A HORROR SHACK IN THE DESERT????
Like it was a beautifully animated movie but come on
Also, first animated Disney flick to use CGI…
Ezra Koenig: Believe in Your Selfie
This week, Oxford Dictionaries announced that its 2013 Word of the Year is “selfie.” One person who was less than thrilled about the choice is Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig. “You know, I got really excited about the word ‘selfie’ in 2012. So when I see that it’s the word of the year in 2013, I feel like, ‘Tell me about some new words!’”
Koenig is firmly in favor of selfies. "I’m definitely pro-selfie," he says. "I think that anybody who’s anti-selfie is really just a hater. Because, truthfully, why shouldn’t people take pictures of themselves? When I’m on Instagram and I see that somebody took a picture of themselves, I’m like, ‘Thank you.’ I don’t need to see a picture of the sky, the trees, plants. There’s only one you."
Adds Koenig, "I could Google image search ‘the sky’ and I would probably see beautiful images to knock my socks off. But I can’t Google, you know, ‘What does my friend look like today?’ For you to be able to take a picture of yourself that you feel good enough about to share with the world – I think that’s a great thing."
The singer is scornful of those who see selfie-snapping as a sign of narcissism. "There’s all this bullshit about ‘the younger kids today are more self-absorbed,’" he says. "It’s like, give me a fucking break! I’ve been in nursing homes, where my grandma is. I’ve seen some of the most selfish people on the planet in there… And the world that these kids are born into literally could not get more selfish. The world is so fucked-up and unequal and full of assholes. You can’t blame it on the younger generation."
Koenig was unaware of “Selfies at Funerals,” the recent Tumblr collecting selfies taken at what some see as an inappropriate place. “No, I didn’t hear about that," he says. “But you know what? When I die, everybody is invited to come take a selfie at my funeral. Except for my enemies. They’re not invited to the funeral, period.”
