There’s this shitty thing that happens when you learn about the reality of racism, sexism and misogyny. You start to hear it from the mouths of your parents, grandparents, friends and siblings and you can’t ignore it anymore but you’ll see how many of them will ignore you when you speak out about it.
When I first heard that this was gonna happen, i was like “UGH! ANOTHER ANNIE!” But now, I think it’ll be pretty good. It’s not trying too hard to be like the original, but it’s still loyal to the story. Can’t wait to see it!
This is my brother in law Adam. He went missing last night (early morning of 3/3/2014). There were threatening e-mails found on his computer, and he was instructed to go to Celebration Park in Seattle, WA. If anyone sees him, please contact the local police there.
wouldnt it be fucking scary if you had a clock that counted down until the moment you die. like what if it could be altered too like one day it says 70 years left but then you do something and it says 10 minutes left and youre like what the fuck i fucked up i fucked up i fucked up
what if you got on a plane and then as soon as it took off everybodys clock changed to 20 minutes
No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.
This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.
Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and lives happily ever after because of it.
We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.
Also, don’t forget that Matilda’s family let her go. They realized how abusive they were and they admitted that the best thing to do is let her be adopted. The “we have to stay together because we’re family” thing goes both ways. Realizing that Matilda would be better off without them is a huge realzation for her parents!
