Re: “Morality Play

I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Doctor Oku brought back my husband that separated with me for good 3 mounths. Am Jessica Butler by name from los angeles. Even though i have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank Doctor Oku for his help upon my life. My husband separated with me for the 3 months and have been in pains and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Doctor Oku who i contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours as far that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Doctor Oku said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him... Email: okutemple@gmail.com or whatsApp him +2347053113465

Re: “Morality Play

what a wonderful world we are living, i still doubt this spell caster how he did it!!! i am Shechan Caroline am from Los Angeles I am so happy to let the whole word know how this powerful spell caster saved my marriage.Everything was going down the drain as my husband can not stop cheating on me with other women. It became used to always heating on me. I tried to make him stop, but I couldn't help the situation, the more I tried, the harder it becomes. At times we will fight and go apart for some months and we will come back again just because of our kids. One day a friend told me about this spell caster who helped her too, his name is Dr.oku, she said he uses white magic spells to solve spiritual problems. I decided to give it a try, I contacted him and he told me it will take just 2 to 3 days and I will see great changes in my husband. He actually cast a spell, believe me after 2 to 3 days of the spell, my husband was confessing different names of woman he has slept with. He begged for forgiveness and never to try it again. From that day till now, my mind is at rest. My husband dislike every other women on earth except me. And am so happy to have him for myself alone.The spell casters contact is okutemple@gmail.com or add him on whasapp +2347053113465

Re: “Beasts of One Notion

archangelo1979- that is absolutely not an appropriate thing to say just because you have a different opinion than he does. I will have you know that Scott is happily married, and his wife is just as happy. Please be more respectful with your disagreements in the future.
Thanks,
Scott's daughter

Re: “Beasts of One Notion

The guy gave Zootopia a less than stellar review because it didn't have the coherent message he wanted. He's one of two reviewers whose review was assigned a "Rotten" rating by Rotten Tomatoes. Relax. It's still an amazing film if you like it, and most people do.

Let's be fair, he DIDN'T fall into the trap of "Zootopia's racism is unclear because the metaphor breaks down when predators=(insert minority here)" that most negative reviews of this film do. That's a very America-centric interpretation of the film that speaks more to the narrow mindedness of the reviewer than the message of the film. I give Scott credit for looking at the film's consistency with itself instead of with his own notions of how the world works.

That being said, I disagree with him because the film explicitly states that you can't fit the world into neat little categorical boxes; a complex social problem can't be solved by a simple solution, but can begin with basic principles of how we treat one another. This is a fairly realistic take on how things actually work, and I like that the film mirrors that complexity by having no simple way to approach its message. If any of us looked back on a day in our lives and see it for what it really was, there would be mixed messages and muddied meanings. Some people fit the molds we imagine them to, others only partly so, and others break them entirely. Guess what? That's life, and as long as we continue to be humans, we'll always have this nasty little problem. It's our own effort that keeps us from devolving back into the reactionary, categorizing people our DNA tells us to be.

It ultimately comes down to our differences in what we like in our films. Scott wants a neat, tidy package that wraps itself up nicely. I don't mind the messy, newspapery collage around this one, and from the looks of it, so do most of you. If you dislike Scott's review, don't read him anymore. Or do, because it's sometimes good to hear things we disagree with.

There's no simple answer.

Re: “Beasts of One Notion

Listen to the monologue at the very end of the movie; this is when Judy acknowledges that while complete stereotyping is bad, "the real world is a lot more complicated than 'you can be whatever you want'". She says everyone has limitations. So no, the message is not an absolute "NO PREJUDICE", it's a much more complex and deep message that you need think about to fully understand. It's a message about how life is messy and you just have to do your best to make the world a better place.

I think it's funny how this writer asks readers to think about the movie, yet simplifies the movie's message so that he can say it's contradictory when it's actually not.

Re: “Beasts of One Notion

This movie acknowledges stereotypes and works with them to create a new kind of message, just because you do have some sort of cultural identity or shared behaviors with people you identify with, doesn't mean you deserve respect and equality. The jokes about sloths and wolves operates within a more high-def reality and in that way offers real hope. If you push the idea of equality to the place where everyone loses thier idiosyncrasies then it is a purely hypothetical and impossible realm, which I think is a dark nook in the brain that allows people to hide thier innate racial biases from themselves. It's the impulse to whitewash that holds people back. This movie preserves individuality and protects the vulnerability of all members of its society. It's about hope in the face of real racial turmoil, and about facing your own prejudice as an extension of your own vulnerability, and says try harder do better, we can overcome this.

Re: “Beasts of One Notion

Doesn't matter that he gave this a 2.5/4 -- what's more alarming is that he liked the Annie 2014 movie MORE. That's the part that instantly discredits him as a movie critic.

Re: “Beasts of One Notion

There is absolutely zero joy and zero positivity in this review. I wonder why someone who clearly doesn't get much enjoyment out of movies is reviewing them. Perhaps it is time for this critic to find a new line of work.

Re: “Beasts of One Notion

The movie wasn't about prejudice. The movie's message is that anyone can be anything.

Judy realizes she was wrong about her prejudice and self doubt when she apologizes to Nick.

Then Judy and Nick bust the innocent looking sheep mayor for the fear mongerer she truly is.

Innocent, small, and underdog Judy becomes a hero when the odds are stacked against her.

The small innocent looking sheep mayor turns out to be a ruthless power hungry politician on the verge of becoming a tyrant.

Anyone can be anything. Welcome to Zootopia.

Re: “Beasts of One Notion

Uh, I would disagree with you. Tolerance is not just about accepting one another but understanding that people will be who they are. So when you complain about the sloths and wolves I see it as a you not quite understanding the message of the film. People are different and you can't change that.

And you say it never sneaks up on you. Did you not see the press conference scene? Did you not see Hopps realize that the prejudice she was fighting against was indeed in herself? Did that not seem significant? Or were you in the bathroom?

I think this reviewer gave Annie 2014 a good review. No joke.

Re: “Beasts of One Notion

Of course a reviewer from Salt Lake City would be against the messages in this movie.
