Classic Plain Jane

A classic plain Jane at heart and at life from Canada. 21. Be prepared, there will be a lot of movie references. You're gonna need a bigger boat.

#mutants are a metaphor

People ask why I like the X-Men so much. Shit like this.

Stan Lee made X-Men to address all the social issue through his passion: comics. That’s why X-Men is generally independent from his others works. Professor X represented Martin Luther King Jr while Magneto represented Malcom X. When the mutants were forced to register as mutants, that represented the Jews being forced to wear the Star of David. He even addressed gay rights. There was a disease that was spreading rapidly. It was believed by the general public to be mutant-based disease. Incredible hostility towards mutants was a result of the disease. This represented the AIDS outbreak in the 80s that was believed to be a “gay disease”. There are tons more.

This is probably going to get quoted in every publication just because I said it. And I’m not even saying anything. I’m not talking about my films, I’m not talking about my life, and I’m not talking about the world. And yet, the media will print it simply because I said it. And at this moment in time, I bet there is an artist around the corner of this hotel, on the street, with a mind far beyond ours, but we will never listen to him simply because he has not appeared in a movie. And that is what is fucked up about our culture.

DISNEY LOVE

I love that at first she thinks it’s misogynistic, and isn’t afraid to call him on it, but then we see him do what we almost never see a male superhero do : He admits he’s scared. 

He’s not trying to belittle her, he’s not trying to tell her or even the kids that they’re not strong, 

He’s trying to protect what he loves most because he’s terrified of losing them. The big, giant robot ripping apart BUILDINGS doesn’t scare him at all compared to losing what he loves.

I love this movie for so many reasons, but this scene is one of the bigger ones. A hero movie where the males are allowed to be emotional without appearing weak? A hero movie where females are allowed to be strong without being callous or woefully 2D? A hero movie where children are allowed to explore their potential instead of being shitty sidekicks?

YES PLEASE.

AND ALL OF THESE ARE REASONS THIS MUTHAFUCKING MOVIE NEEDS A SEQUEL! MORE THAN NEMO, MORE THAN MONSTERS INC, FUCK MORE THAN TOY STORY EVEN. THIS! MUTHER!F FUCKING! MOVIE!!!!!!!

Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl

Jack Sparrow just got way cooler.

BABE

Yo, this is why Norrington said he’s the “worst pirate I’ve ever heard of,” and then Jack followed it up with, “But you have heard of me.”

Because Jack was branded a Pirate because he freed people rather than stealing anything. So Norrington, with his sense of duty, knows that Jack has been branded a criminal for actively not being a terrible human being. Norrington is torn between his duty as a naval officer and knowing that Jack is right.

He freed exactly 100 people, that’s why his debt to Jones was 100 souls. Davy has a sick sense of irony after all. Jack freed 100 souls and as a consequence his ship got sunk. Now his ship has been raised and as a consequence, he has to enslave 100 souls. This explains his reluctance to actually pay back the debt.

Crap, the latter portion of this franchise was a lot smarter than I thought it was… 

There’s so much people don’t get about this franchise, the story is really more complex than just “funny drunken pirate meets hottie lady and hottie man with occasional visits from squid man”.

"Occasional visits from squid man"

Best comment.
