yes, CT I think is a quiet person and an introvert who doesnt know how to talk to people about stuff and heavily internalizes her feelings and doubts and ultimately doesn’t trust a single damn person but herself… but then she’s also got a fucking mouth on her and it shoots off sometimes and she’s not really sorry
I shouldn’t be listening to Ke$ha while writing CT stuff. Honestly. what the fuck
I don’t get the joke but it is still hilarious because you are such an excellent writer. Also I feel like North must have a rather high rank.
CT is here to drink cocoa and make fun of york and her cocoa is a bit too hot to drink so…
I’ve watched this vine like 50 times now,
Agent Connecticut asks some very basic questions and no one fucking knows where Washington is.
I can dig it
I remember being so impressed by CT’s plot the first time I watched, just on a sort of broad narrative level. The details are absolute crap, but it’s a really wonderful concept.
Dude, like I rag on season 9 and 10 narratively but CT’s sub-plot was like… just what it needed? Like the stakes never seemed higher than when CT was doing something. She was very much a plot device, but the plot she needed to carry also put her in a position to be this incredibly complicated character by pure circumstance. She’s a Freelancer who wants to bring down PFL and, from her final message, it seems it was not something she was doing entirely willingly. A conflicted traitor, not sure if what she’s doing is right.
Basically, I get if people dont like CT because she had bad dialogue and her motives are poorly articulated and the romance sub-plot like confused the issue A LOT, but I like the core of what CT is. I relate to her.
It was written pretty shittily but yeah thats kinda what canon is after I mean it was fucking cringe-worthy like “you promised we’d be together!” god, like shoot me, actually. nothing made CT’s arc less believable than Pill Guy romance sub-plot, even the bullshit about how everyone apparently knew she was passing messages to the Resistance… but didn’t do anything about it?
whatever. They knew someone was passing info but not who and they were all literally just like TALKING ABOUT THE MOLE in the fucking hallways like that’s not going to alert the mole to GTFO with everything.Like… *throws up hands*
It’s funny because CT’s arc, actually, is kinda great. One Freelancer trying to stop the Director and gets killed by her own team for it and is nebulously portrayed as a traitor right up until the end. Like… there’s holes but CT’s sub-plot was very important, actually. You can rip apart the characterization choices and bad plot logic, but the idea was still good.
There’s just so much to love in this film. For me, though, it really feels like the anti-Disney film. In the best possible way, I mean. Because where Frozen used parts of native cultures appropriatively, with no reference to the origin and meaning of those cultural symbols, Book of Life is completely steeped in its culture. It’s not a movie with some Mexican stuff thrown in for the sake of “political correctness” nor is it a film shamelessly ripping off indigenous culture. It’s a film by Mexicans for everyone about Mexican culture.
Heck, in the beginning few minutes of the movie the narrator actually says, “Now, as we all know, Mexico is the center of the world.” And she is neither kidding, nor being intentionally ironic. She’s just stating a fact. Mexico is the center of the world. And, yeah. This is a Mexican folktale, so Mexico in this story is the center of the world. That’s a given.
It pretty much highlights the difference between cultural appropriation and cultural sharing. Because this is a movie made for a predominantly non-Hispanic audience (hence why they’re always explaining everything), but it’s made with love. As a sort of, “Here’s what we love about our culture. You are free and welcome to love it too.” And I want more of that in the world. That’s a great thing. It’s not about us coming in and taking anyone’s culture, it’s about them deciding to share it. Who doesn’t want more of that?
