There is a Pope in the Cars universe. This means that there is Catholic Christianity, which means there was a Jesus car who was crucified. Jesus Chrysler was crucified by car Romans under Pontiac Pilot who washed his wheels. A car was nailed to a cross and ascended to Heaven.
Megamind - 'Bad Guy' vs ‘Nice Guy’
Seriously, if you haven’t see this movie, you really, really should. There are so many great things about Megamind: anti-bullying, great female character, funny jokes, touching scenes, very detailed animation, super awesome music… The gif set above is probably my favourite thing, however: Nice Guy is the bad guy.
Yeah I’ve kinda wanted to talk about this a lot.
Megamind is the villain, the “bad guy”. She makes it clear that she doesn’t want him. He respects it and walks off. It comes up a few more times but it’s more of an “are you sure?” or “thats how it is” than any sort of demand.
Hal is the new “hero”. His crush on Roxanne turns into an immediate “You love me now because I’m a superhero!” and when she makes it clear that she doesn’t want him, his reaction is to tantrum, then destroy the city, inevitably killing people, and attempting to kill both Roxanne and Megamind.
Hal’s legitimately scary because women have to deal with behavior like his on a constant basis. Don’t be a Hal. Be a Megamind. RESPECT THE “NO”.
Unrelated, but my other favorite thing, besides the whole “villain is a Nice Guy”, is that Minion cross-dresses and Megamind is completely serious when he says “you look fantastic”. Megamind is totally cool about his best friend cross-dressing and encourages it. That’s very important.
Roxanne also is the only character that moves the story along. All the other characters are having an existential crisis. Roxanne throws things and steps up first and is just a fucking queen.
Also I am like 200% convinced Megamind is bi. BUT THATS ME NOT OFFICIAL CANON although Dreamworks has like abandoned Megamind entirely so fandom says he’s bi THE END fandom-canon is now canon fight me on this
Sometimes I think this movie came out a few years too early. Tumblr would have loved the shit out of this. This movie fucks with stereotyped gender roles and Nice Guy thinking and just augh Dreamworks why did you let go of this why why why that was the worst decision ever why
This this this THIS THIS THIS
I mean this is generally a good film but I hate the whole “the bad guy doesn’t get the girl” hero gets the girl, girl is prize to be won, mentality it mentions every now and then.
sort of in response to zo (hope you dont mind) and just adding on to whats already been said. i would also like to mention that megamind and roxannes relationship actually develops, and in a very realistic way (as realistic as you can get when superpowers and stuff are involved, anyway). the fact that roxanne and megamind got together at the end did sort of give off a vibe of “hero gets the girl, villain doesnt” and i would have been 110% ok with them ending up as just friends by the end, but at the same time i still do think that their dynamic is very well written and their relationships development could have warranted both friendship or romance by the end, and either way i personally would have been equally ok with either of those ends. as a matter of fact, i think their whole romantic relationship ends up being built off a powerful friendship, which i also think is a great message to send out— that a romantic partner should typically also be someone you consider a friend.
can we also talk about the part at the end when everyone crowds around megamind to celebrate his victory and megamind freaks out a little before roxanne steps in and tells them to back off a little because “he’s not used to positive feedback”. this could definately be an allegory for mental illness and shows kids how to deal with a situation that triggers their friends or makes them uncomfortable.
If this isn’t an entrance to a fairy world then I don’t know what is…

For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth.

I love the hp movies but it is so painful because I want charlie weasley, I want peeves, I want a kinder, accurate ron and an unperfect, accurate hermione. I want all the little sassy, clever, lines left out in the movies and all the really important details that were left out.
