I submit the intro for Hunchback of Notre Dame beats Circle of Life raw.
Especially since the former doesn’t have flocks of pink birds that immediately make me think, “Sure, Disney, you weren’t influenced at all by Osamu Tezuka. Tell us another one.”
This movie was surprisingly hardcore for a Disney retelling of Victor Hugo’s really screwed up story.
It also did a ton of great stuff with God and religion and Catholicism that somehow managed to still be about people and not bring “Why Religion Sucks” into the whole thing, which is aces.
One thing that surprises me is how well the animation has aged. Strangely enough, it looked weird at the time; we weren’t really used to traditional animation blended with computer backgrounds. But now that pretty much everything is computer animated, you can really appreciate how effin’ gorgeous the Cathedral backgrounds are.
Also, God Help the Outcasts is the most honest song featured in a Disney movie. “Honest” meaning it doesn’t feel manufactured specifically to be played in a suburbanite van ferrying kids to McDonalds. It’s raw, open, and genuine.
(Needless to say, there is nothing suburban about Hellfire, ho ho ho. Will we ever again see a Disney villain essentially sing, “Help me Mary, I have an unholy erection?”)
some muggleborn like “i want to be an astronaut when i grow up!”
wizard kids like “wtf is an astronaut”

What if Parrish is a siren and that’s why he’s on the deadpool?
Guys, he would be a police siren.
Sometimes I forget that not everyone knows everything that ever happened in the Harry Potter Universe.
Chris Pratt isn’t the only star who hit the gym for Guardians of the Galaxy.

Did you know that in certain European countries it is illegal to display any sort of Nazi symbol? What the fascist white supremacist neo-Nazi scum of Germany, France, etc. have been doing is displaying the Confederate flag instead, because there is no ban on it.
So the next time someone tries to tell you that the flag of the Confederacy has nothing to do with racism, remember that actual Nazis are using it as their preferred symbol, and please remind them that they are actually pieces of literal shit.
But that is not what the actual historical meaning of the confederate flag is in America. The civil war in the us had little to do with racism and slavery and more to do with state rights. Both sides had their flaws. The Yankees had many political motives in the civil war and where not perfect by anymeans.
1. The “states rights” argument is undermined by the fact that the “right” in question was the right to own other humans as property.
2. Both symbols represent a certain “way of life;” a romanticized pre-industrial past where the wealthy, white male property owner on top, everyone else “in their place” as his chattel, and there was no law higher than him.
3. This is one very reprehensible way to fly crap beneath the proverbial radar. Clever, but reprehensible.
Fantastic beasts and where Hagrid hides them.
