When did we start rating films on how ‘toxic’ their messages are rather than the quality of their production?

I recently rewatched this movie and Jesus Christ is it bad. I’ve never really liked this movie. As a kid I found it boring and as an adult I found it so idealistic as to be meaningless. Well one thing I never realized is how the humor relies entirely on ethnic stereotypes. I don’t know if I’m just more sensitive to it after spending so much time with Europeans, but this is just ridiculous.

Speedy Gonzales is fucking hilarious. Gone with the Wind is one of my favorite movies, unironically.

Now that that’s out of the way, I just can’t believe how a movie could possibly get away with relying on ridiculous clichés. If your movie has a shitty plot and boring characters, it needs to at least be funny, or something, and it’s not. And this is 1955, not 1925. This humor should have been played out at the time. Did people really find this shit funny back then? Was it all the little kids from the war boon? I just don’t get it.

Speaking of shitty plot, the plot is shitty. It’s a Disney movie, whatever, but Lady is a stupid character. She’s a dog that looks good I guess? I don’t know. I’m human. I don’t know what a good looking dog is supposed to look like. If I’m being honest, the characters are about as well-developed as the ones from Sleeping Beauty, but Sleeping Beauty is hot. That’s her thing. And you know what? Prince Philip is hot too. That’s all we need. Dogs are not hot. That’s fucking weird. Give us something else to lean on besides dogs going on dates. I guess they got it right with One Hundred and One Dalmations, Aristocats, and I guess Robin Hood, later on, but it doesn’t forgive this piece of shit.

The only thing good about this movie is the voice acting and animation (Peggy Lee is completely wasted though), but even the animation is not wholly impressive. Bambi came out like twenty years before and looks better, and is actually a good movie. Animating animals is also not really a challenge. Again, Sleeping Beauty is a classic for its technical prowess and legendary archetypes, not its characterization, but that movie has people and hair getting animated really well. Dogs running around is something I can get out of Looney Tunes.

This movie may very well be the worst of the Disney canon that Disney worked on himself, but then The Three Caballeros exists. Actually, I think I’d rather watch The Three Caballeros. At least that movie is educational and has music with rhythm.
Literally none of this is criticizing the message of the film. If the film had the same message but was actually interesting to watch I might like it (i.e. Sleeping Beauty).

Not picking a side, but yeah, it's definitely not certified fresh.
Not picking sides, but picking sides? :think:

Anyway, if you were thinking factually, not true:

At least at the moment.
No, like it's literally not certified fresh. It'd have to be 74+%. No need to get defensive.

Oh, right, that's the one when it gets a bumper sticker as well? Cool.

I've seen that argument before. 'No need to get defensive.' What am I defending here, I linked a post that is supposed to show it's not rotten anymore. It's a 1% bump.

Lately I've been in the mood to rewatch plenty of superhero stuff, just picking movies from my shelf randomly, then rewatching the entire series and giving appropriate marks on letterboxd afterwards. This movie will dissappear from everyone's radar in a couple of years, perhaps even months, that's how good it is in comparison to most sh movies, from 1989 onwards.

Hey, if we're going to play the righteous poster, let's play.
We're all different. We see the world differently and have varied opinions and ways of expressing them. We've all had our controversies. Digging up corpses to prove a point is just petty at this point.

lol imagine trying to clown someone for not giving a fuck how consenting adults fuck because someone throwing fits over LADY AND THE TRAMP and saying shit like “the chinese population is literally racist” is somehow better in your books

all because girl boss cape kino is bad

and before y’all with your massive hate boners for virgo accuse him of digging up corpses or whatever you call it, maybe it would have been cool for y’all to read who actually did the digging.

anikom got obliterated on the last page i don't know why he's still posting in this thread
