Yet another reason I’m not interested in having children. If you don’t like the idea of being the doctor who tells a patient his life is gonna be twenty years shorter than he thought, try being the parent who tells a kid his life is gonna be finite when he thought it would be infinite. In terms of difference between the subject’s wrong idea and the bad news you’re breaking, being a parent is infinitely worse.
I’m a little tired of all the celebration over “Frozen.” Sure it was revolutionary for Disney. But compared to many other stories by less famous authors and producers, it was still kind of old-fashioned and uncreative. I’ve seen much more original books and movies that gave much more enlightened messages, produced long before “Frozen.” Really, the only thing that made that movie remarkable was that Disney made it.
You want diversity and representation and healthy messages and truly original ideas? Stop putting pressure on the mainstream, already-famous-and-powerful sources of entertainment to include such things. Start consuming your entertainment from the less-powerful, less-famous sources that are ALREADY doing the right thing of their own free will, and help them BECOME more famous.
I was fairly confused by the movie because, right up until the end, every conversation about the Elder Wand’s ownership assumed it was always passed to whoever killed its previous owner, and then all of a sudden, at the end, the whole thing about “disarming” came up. Perhaps it was clearer in the book, which I never read, so feel free to discount my theories, since I’m definitely not a “true” HP fan.
