#36 Mulan (1998)
Mulan is my favorite Disney movie. I cannot be objective about Mulan. My review of Mulan comes to you in list form.
10 Reasons Mulan is my favorite Disney film:10.”Did I mention I was the great stone dragon?”

Okay no, Mushu’s comic relief isn’t ALWAYS funny (and it got less funny after Eddie Murphy did Donkey in Shrek - they’re way too similar) but there are certain lines where he’s just hilarious, and that’s one of them. See also: any time he refers to Khan as a cow and “That was very good, you can sit next to me.”
9. Mulan is a Princess of Color.

This brings our total of PoC Princesses up to three now (Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan), yay! Another thing I like is that Mulan is not technically a princess either by birth or marriage, so her inclusion in the Disney Princess lineup sort of adds to the idea that “princess” is more a state of mind/way of life/level of self-confidence for girls rather than a specific status. You can make yourself a princess rather than being made one by outside circumstances. Does that make sense? I wish Disney would play up that angle a lot more.
8. The romance is incidental.

Yeah, Mulan crushes on Shang a little while training but she doesn’t let it get in the way of her main objective. Shang only decides to pursue Mulan at the very end of the film, which would make sense as he spends most of it thinking she is a boy (more on this in #2). I don’t think having Mulan fall in love takes anything away from her strength or accomplishments, but the romance barely even registers anyway. They don’t kiss and it ends with Mulan simply inviting Shang to stay for dinner after he acts like a big dumb dork. But again, I do think they are a good match and will explain a little farther down the list.
7. Beautiful opening title screen

Not to mention beautiful animation in general, based a lot on Chinese paintings and drawings. Lovely and unique.
6. The Huns attack.

Amazing CGI. It just looks so good and TERRIFYING.
5. Shan Yu isn’t magical, he’s just a ruthless guy.

He’s scary and intense but he’s just a human being. The only fantastical part of Mulan is Mushu, and it gives some real weight to the story.
4. “The greatest gift and honor is having you for a daughter.”

Crying.
3. “I’ve heard a great deal about you, Fa Mulan. You stole your father’s armor, ran away from home. Impersonated a soldier, deceived your commanding officer, dishonored the Chinese army, DESTROYED my palace, AND… you have saved us all.”

CRYINGGGGGGGGGGGGG.
2. Both Shang and Mulan’s main motivations come from their love of family and wanting to honor their parents.

Both specifically act in order to please/protect their fathers as well as prove themselves.
Joke all you want about Shang questioning his sexuality and sparing Mulan because of his crush and being relieved she’s a woman etc (there are like 5 million tumblr posts making these jokes) but Shang, as far as I can see, thought Ping was a weird but sincere young boy who had recently saved Shang’s life. He is angry and confused when he discovers Ping is Mulan. Shang softens toward Mulan the moment she says she disguised herself to save her father. Shang has just been too late to help his father in battle and lost him. He completely understands Mulan’s reasoning and, I think, spares her because he knows he would have done the same for his father if he could have.
1. Mulan’s decision scene.

Timing, animation, score, coloring. Almost no dialogue, just Mulan’s expression going from lost to determined. This is the most perfect scene in Disney canon.
Next time: Tarzan

"how are you going to look with all those tattoos when you’re old??"

rad as hell

Reblogging this babe

reblogging for the last shot

fun fact: she got them all after she turned like 37. all of them.

“She said: ‘I love my tattoos but men don’t seem to feel the same. My appearance seems to scare them off. ‘I’ve only ever been on one date in seven years. That was through a tattoo-lovers dating site - but it didn’t last. ‘I think when men first look at me, they think I’m a bit rough. They mutter ‘look at the state of her’ under their breath. They don’t bother to get to know me.’ ”

Always reblog

As an English teacher, this made me weep tears of awestruck joy.

I went to the dentist to finish up my fillings yesterday, and it occurred violently to me that my mom couldn’t even hold out long enough to see my dental work completed. The last time I went to the dentist, it had cost a whopping $310 at which my mom was horrified. But she had been glad to see the cavities fixed on my front teeth. She had been so fucking proud.

And then she died. And I had to say bye to just my dad last night when I went downstairs to the dental clinic. There was no welcoming smile nor a “Let me see!” when I came back. I’m not saying that my dad is nothing to me, but at times like these all he asks is, “How much was it?”

Fuck off dude you’re not even the one paying. He’s only curious how much money he could’ve cheated off me if I hadn’t paid for my teeth. You would think that he would be more supportive in this whole dental thing, seeing as he’s basicallly toothless. He lost all his visible teeth since early adulthood, I think.

It’s kind of painful to realize that my dental appointment was still here when my mom isn’t.

That cat is not wearing safety goggles, he hasn’t even bothered to clean up that spilled solvent, and he is holding that Erlenmeyer flask way to close to his face.

a guy at school today was wearing this damn fine red nail polish and I heard these two girls whispering angrily and looking in his direction so I listened in expecting them to be weird about it and the first thing I hear is “how the HELL did he get it so good did he get it professionally done or something you need to ask him where he found that colour jesus fucking christ are you KIDDING me”

I think this is a good example of how the world should work.

These dudes are fucking legit.  They don’t just show up one day in court, either, they actually make friends with the kids and let them know they have a support system and that there are people in the world who care about them and will always have their back.  And less important, but also cool, is that the few times a couple of them have come into my cafe, they’ve been super friendly and polite and when I told one of the guys that I noticed his Bikers Against Child Abuse patch and wanted him to know how awesome I thought he was because of it, he got kind of shy and blushed and said, “The kids are the awesome ones, we just let them know they’re allowed to be brave.”
