The man was a giant until two years ago, when his back started hurting on a trip with his grandson to Europe. He’d had other issues with his health — knees that didn’t work right because of football played for the University of California at Berkeley; a heart defect that kept his pulse rate so low…

About Frozen

gailsimone:

Okay, I have had a couple thoughts about this movie boiling up for a while…they are observations, things I saw and experienced, more than actual theories of my own, so please bear with me.

The interesting thing about Frozen is how polarizing it is. People seem to mostly either adore it, or they absolutely hate it with a scorn that seems to go beyond the film’s faults.

I saw it, and I enjoyed it, but I did feel it had some story problems, and many other issues have been raised that make some sense to me, as well. My opinion of the film isn’t the issue.

I think [HBO’s Game of Thrones] rides a very fine line and creatively it’s sort of amazing, because I think sometimes people are outraged by how much nudity there is and how compromised women are in these circumstances. And then they find a way to fill these characters with such a richness, and to kind of blindside you with a power that is within a female character, a level of intelligence, a survival skill that can totally outshine any of the other characters that we’re familiar with. And I think that they’re not afraid really shine a light on how fucking terrible it can be for a woman out there. How dangerous it is in this world and the kind of violence that is perpetrated against women.

I’m a huge sailor moon fan and very excited about the new anime. However I felt a little sad that the new production feels and looks like low budget. The 90s version wasn’t very close to Takeuchis style. So this time they wanted get closer in sailor moon crystal to the original manga style.

I still like the idea. But I hadn’t felt very comfortable because the new anime is having some small issues. Its not a problem with the new style.. the problem lies in the face and the proportions.

Nevertheless I’m going to enjoy sailor moon crystal anyway. I’m still very happy about the new production from toei animation. I just wanted to share my thoughts. Here I tried to modify the sailor moon crystal screenshot and tried to honor Naoko Takeuchis wonderful style.

Take care and tell me what you think.

Sailor Moon crystal by Toei Animation

Sailor Moon by Naoko Takeuchi

Every time I look at other artist’s take on this new Sailor Moon style, the more it reminds me of the character creator screens from BioWare games. You create the look of the character, see him/her from all different angles, and when you start the game, you find something that just doesn’t look right. I’ve recently restarted Dragon Age II three times at different areas simply because my character just didn’t turn out right. That’s what I see in Sailor Moon Crystal. I know what they’re going for, but it just feels wrong. A slight adjustment would make all the difference.

[x] Gates McFadden on the role of women in Star Trek (1993)

Incase you were wondering which episode fits her description, it’s the Season Four episode “Qpid”, the one where Q sends the entire senior staff of the Enterprise into a fantasy recreation of Robin Hood. Not only are her remarks dead on in how Beverly (Gates’ character) and Troi are handled in the episode, it depicts them to be borderline incompetent. When Troi uses a bow and arrow to hit a target in front of her, she accidentally hits Data who was just standing far out to the side.  

What surprises me about this interview is that Gates is really sugar coating it. if you think this was the worst of it, here are things that Star Trek: The Next Generation did to it’s female characters BEFORE “Qpid”. The original chief of security, Tasha Yar, was bashed with the Idiot Ball so much that Denise Crosby literally left the show before it even finished it’s first season. And how did they handle her departure? By having the monster of the week kill her off just like she was a random redshirt. 

To top it off, after Season One ended, Maurice Hurley convinced Gene Roddenberry to FIRE Gates McFadden from the show. It wasn’t until Maurice Hurley left the show that Gates came back. As this interview shows, things didn’t really get much better.
