It’s a million laughs around the Science Bros
Audrey says “fuck your gender roles”
This movie is super underrated.
Audrey is so underrated. How can you not love her?
I have a love-hate relationship with this movie.
On one hand it’s got awesome PoC characters who defy racial and gender stereotypes. It also discusses colonialism and how people tend to destroy indigenous cultures to obtain land and resources (which is why the crew ultimately decided a to pretend they never found Atlantis because they don’t want anyone else to try and destroy the culture).
But on the other hand, the whole plot is that Atlantis needs a white, cishet man to save it from extinction and for some reason he understand their culture and language better than they do.
hEY SCREW YOU OKAY
MILO WAS THE ANTITHESIS OF WHITE SAVIOR
HE WAS A NERDY USELESS LITTLE SHIT WHO WAS COWARDLY UNTIL OTHERS FORCED HIM TO ACT
HIS ONLY STRENGTHS WERE HIS MIND AND HIS ETHICS
HE WAS THE PERFECT DUDE FOR THE JOB AND THE REASON HE KNEW BETTER WAS BECAUSE HE RIGOROUSLY STUDIED TEXTS THAT HAD BEEN LOST OR DESTROYED IN ATLANTIS BECAUSE KIDA’S FATHER INTENTIONALLY LET HIS KINGDOM LAPSE INTO DECAY AND OBSCURITY
DO NOT PULL THAT WHITE SAVIOUR BULLSHIT BECAUSE MILO WAS A DAMN GOOD DUDE
milo’s intentions were never to save Atlantas either he just wanted to find it and he did. The fact that he was able to save him is what brought him closer to Kida and what helped him realize he could do. He really was useless to everyone but the people of Atlantas.
And the greatest part about this movie is the fact that most of the norms were challenged, the hero was a scrawny nerd, the doctor was a huge black dude, the head engineer was a Latina teenager with a sister who was a boxing champ, the pyrotech came from a family that owned flower shops and wanted to continue that business, the lady who came to find milo was not only hot as fuck but turned out to be a badass, against typical hot lady roles in movies, and kida wasn’t a helpless damsel , she was naive, but she lived in an air pocket underground for thousands of years
she still fought for her people, she took on the responsibility of helping them, she acted like a leader, like a ruler, she was brilliant. This movie is sooo under rated it makes me sad
And if we’re getting nitpicky? TECHNICALLY the ones who saves ATLANTIS (the people/city) was Kida and the crystal’s godlike powers okay. All Milo did was get her out of the contraption and she did the rest.
AND might I point out, here in this scene Milo doesn’t say “How did a GIRL become head mechanic” it was “How did a teenager” as in how did someone so young. He wasn’t questioning her gender, he was questioning her age and that makes sense because most of the people on the expedition are older or MUCH older.
They didn’t find him for a week.
reblogging because i headcanoned that they only found him because Tony happened to be flying that way and was like “that’s a freaking huge bird nesting in th- WHAT THE HECK CLINT? GUYS I FOUND CLINT!”
there’s a big difference between “i’m sad because a character i was emotionally invested in was killed off” and “this character’s death served no purpose, was used for shock value, and is the product of bad writing and i’m upset about that”
This is actually really funny if you think about it. I mean, there was totally some sort of ghost or demon about to kill her but then that sheet blew straight into its face and it was so embarrassed that it decided to disappear.
Tremble, mortal, for I am Zerendikos, and I will drag your howling soul to—
AH SHIT WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS IT’S ALL OVER MY FACE
WHAT IS THAT SMELL
IS THAT FUCKING FEBREEZE
FUCK DAMMIT SHIT FORGET THIS I’M OUT
I found this, so I thought I’d chime in on this.
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME
Yup, it really happened.
|—||a thought i had this morning driving to school (via poseysposey)|
i don’t think anyone understands that when i say i get secondhand embarrassment easily i mean at the first sign of trouble for a character in a television show i immediately pause and sit there for ten to thirty minutes thinking “oh god they fucked up”
I have hidden my face in shame and embarrassment for them
I scream into whatever pillow is nearest for them
You know the words.
You’ve seen it at least 5 times.
ONCE THE DRUMS CAME IN I HIT REBLOG.
literally my reaction.
5 times? More like a hundred times
I HAVEN’T HEARD THIS SONG IN FOREVER
I THINK I JUST DIED
