A 20-Something Black Gal's Musings
2017-05-12 03:53 pm (UTC)
Oh no, there isn't a part two coming out that I'm aware of. xD Just I was confused at first whether you were talking about the one already out, or if there was a hypothetical second one I hadn't heard of coming out. xD If that makes sense now? LOL!
Yeah. :/ I hate that they COMPLETELY destroyed the characters of the three good fairies. I mean I can no doubt easily think of ways to play with the fairy tale and make Maleficent more redeeming, as well as keeping the three good fairies proactive and in their badass womanly glory. :3 As well as NOT getting into any of the rape-symbolism of the asshole Stefan cutting off her wings (*GROWLS and glaring >___>*) or killing off token black people, or trashing every potential sense of how this freaking world functions at all in an internally consistent manner. Or even having the prince be barely used and just tossed away (literally actually e.o), and keep the interactions he and Aurora had in the Disney film and deepen that more. (Whoever says that their interactions SHOULD lead to "true love" or any sort of romance? Why not a good buddy-buddy friendship with nothing sexual or romantic there?) AND DEFINITELY GIVE AURORA'S MOTHER A GODDAMN NAME AND PERSONALITY AND HISTORY FOR ONCE IN OUR LVIES!!!! Like... C'MON people!!! WTH?!?!
Oh and rectify that weird-ass thing I noticed that every goddamn fairy tale that had to "lose or otherwise give up" their "only child" never... ever had another child? In a time when children living to adulthood was rather... in question? In a time when people were specifically ENCOURAGED to have as many potential heirs as possible? Both royalty AND peasantry? ...Um........ *crickets chirp* Nothing ringing any bells? Like... that is alarming and glaring to me every time I see this. Like WTH?! Are you BEGGING for your dynasty to be cut short and the land to rip asunder into a civil war with a lack of a clear heir to inherit???? It's just not good politics people!!
I do love the adoption positivity, so I could keep that and play with the relationship dynamics of others and make it as respectful, deep, complex, and more shades of grey than anything staunchly black and white. I love the inclusion of Diavol, but I wish Maleficent had the ability to turn HERSELF into a dragon at the end, instead of doing it to Diavol. When was the last time you saw a meant-to-be GOOD person turning into a DRAGON or anything scaly in the pursuit of justice and the Right Thing? Never!!!
And I could make Diavol's and Maleficent's relationship less abusive and problematic to boot.
... Fuck I could even include people of color and LGBT+ in the main cast itself just to spite people. =.= Whoever said they HAVE to ALWAYS be cisgender straight white people all the godfucking time? =.= And yes I'd have the main fucking heroes and heroine be POC and queer as much as I hella fucking can. =.= Just watch me.~
...Fuck now this is getting my creative juices going. XD I wanna attempt a nice little um... outline of what such a movie/story like this could look like. :3 ~ *squee*
Anyways I didn't know the guy who played Diavol in this movie was Sam Riley and that he played Mr. Darcy in one of the variations. So I came in to seeing him with no prior connection lol. I do love his cute sass and snark and wit and how he was devoted to her at the very end out of a true genuine (to me at least) devotion and how she seemed to have warmed up to him in return thankfully! *ships a HEALTHY, NON-ABUSIVE, consensual AU version of Diavol and Maleficent relationship now*
If I make anything of my planning and plotting here, I'll be SURE to let you know first off, as soon as I can. XD <3 *huggles*
