THE GUY BEING A SPIDER IN THE BACK THOUGH
This is at least the third time I’ve reblogged this and I’m not sorry
When you get Eva to go off on a tangent...
Lysa: RANGO WON
Lysa: RANGO WON
Lysa: THAT MAKES ME EXCITE
Lysa: Zack says Kunfu anda 2 should''ve won
evayoinfinity: Kung Fu Panda 2 was AMAZING, but unfortunately not revolutionary. It didn't cross any of the boundaries that Rango completely shattered with its adult themes and existential ideas. Panda has plenty of great points, and rightfully so because it's a fantastic movie. But Rango, for me, is so much more significant because it's welcoming a new age of animated storytelling that many other studios have thus far been afraid to enter.
Lysa: THANK YOU
Lysa: SO MUCH THIS
Lysa: hey, brb
evayoinfinity: I would say the exact same thing for 9, but it wouldn't be significant because those oscars already passed, and it unfortunately wasn't nominated because far too many people took it at face-value. Which is truly depressing, because it's just brimming with subtext and unconventional storytelling, but it was all hidden behind this illusion of being an average film that many people didn't appreciate. In reality, it wasn't a bad film at all. In fact, it was brilliant. It was just very subtle.
evayoinfinity: The character development, which many people believed the film to be severely lacking in, was in fact abundant in other ways that most will not detect on their first viewing. 9 is a film that requires people to commit to multiple viewings, or a very intellectual and emotionally resonant mind, to be truly appreciated as the masterpiece that it is. But unfortunately, not many people like that exist in this day and age. XP
Lysa: .............................i lovev you
evayoinfinity: Rango, on the other hand, takes a far more direct approach. Which is not to say it's a better film than 9, but it certainly ranks high on the list of revolutionary films. In my own personal opinion, it comes in at a close second to 9, partly because 9 took the adult route first, but mostly because we've all seen films with talking animals. 9 was just a smorgasboard of originality and new ideas, while Rango was more about incorporating pre-existing concepts in a medium that rarely ever sees such things.
evayoinfinity: The difference being
evayoinfinity: You don't see existential questions in animation.
evayoinfinity: But you don't see stitchpunk creatures imbued with a human soul in a post-apocalyptic world in ANYTHING.
evayoinfinity: .....How did I get on this tangent.
Lysa: I don't know, but i love it
