I kinda liked it. But it was an… average movie, I thought. I disliked it very much because of all that “OMG IT’S THE BEST MOVIE EVAR” squealing on Internet. PR is a powerful weapon indeed.“Average” is probably a really good word for it. It may not have deserved all the harsh hatred it got, but I agree it didn’t really deserve all the blind love it got either. But, y’know… ~~**DISNEY**~~
I finally watched it the other day with my mom and chickenbutt (which was a good sampling because we are all varying levels of forgiving when it comes to good storytelling), and I have to say…
None of us thought it was that bad.
I definitely don’t think the story was nearly as bad as all the hate on Tumblr made it sound.
Yes, I can still absolutely respect and agree with the criticism on racism, cultural appropriation, poor research, lazy character design, all of that. And yes, even the plot did feel a little rushed and poorly put-together, and dear god there were a lot of songs in the beginning
I liked the sister dynamic. I liked both Elsa’s and Anna’s characters, I actually found them pretty relatable. They both have distinct personalities and serious character flaws that make them interesting. And one thing that was a really pleasant surprise to me, that I’m shocked wasn’t spoiled for me on the ol’ Tumbles (so don’t read the rest of this paragraph if you don’t want the spoiler I guess): that “act of true love”? Not romantic love. Anna isn’t rescued by her love interest at the last minute, she saves herself by saving her sister. That’s pretty cool.
Okay spoiler over. ANYWAY all I’m saying is I agree with the people who said, yeah okay this movie was really problematic, but so is nearly every movie Disney has ever put out, and it’s okay to point that out and be upset, but don’t let it blind you to the things they might have actually done right. Keep pushing for change, always, but also appreciate what we’ve already achieved.
don’t save as jpeg
as a former yearbook editor and designer, let me explain this further
if youre only planning on posting your art online, them please save it as .png ;this is also better for transparencies as well
please, if youre planning of printing your art, NEVER use png. it makes the quality of the image pretty shitty. use jpeg or pdf instead. and always set your work at 300dpi to get a better printing quality - this means, the images are crisper and sharper and theres no slight blurriness. i had a talk with my friend who is currently taking design, and pdf is much better to use when youre working with a bigger publishing company because it still has the layers intact, but if youre only planning on printing your stuff at staples or at some small publishing store, the jpeg is the way to go.
this has been a public service announcement
whispers whenever possible you should actually print from your original file (.psd, .ai, etc), because you still have the most control over the resolution, color profile, layers, paths, and so on.
but yeah if you’re not doing the printing yourself then fuckin’ PDF that shit jpegs are embarrassing
