ディズニープリンセス Unpopular ディズニー opinions (confessions)

Post your unpopular Disney opinion here. Express your opinion about not only DP but Disney in general. Please be respectful about each other's opinions and don't bash someone because of it. Say "I disagree/agree with you because..." I'm sure everyone is mature enough to handle it.

I don't think The Lion King is all that great. It's fun, yeah, and the opening is phenomenal, but the rest of it was just kinda meh for me. Simba got on my nerves, and Pumbaa and Timon weren't all that funny.

I think if you dislike something, you should have a logical and well thought out reason for disliking it. This is mainly due to the fact that it takes little to no effort to like something, as there is usually at least one element that calls out to you. Disliking something takes effort and I think that effort should be well justified.

I'm probably going to be big-time bashed for this, but I don't really consider the ending to Pocahontas all that sad. Yes, it IS a bit somber, but we have to be happy that John is going back home to get the best treatment he can.

I find Peter Pan 2 to be a much better movie than the first one. They focus a lot more on the characters such as Jane needing to learn to have fun, despite living during a war. They also focus a lot more on consequences such as whenTtinkerbell almost dies, and they have a very empowered female character in the form of Jane who is able to pick herself up after failing and save everyone.
shanyuisboss commented…
To be honest, I think Peter Pan is probably one of the most overrated ディズニー 映画 and also one of the worst. Not only was it racist, the アニメーション stunk, Captain Hook and Smee were some of the most annoying characters on the planet, and so were the ロスト boys, Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, and even Wendy. I feel like everyone in the movie got on my nerves. The songs were weird except for the mother song, and 全体, 全体的です it is a terrible movie. The sequel on the other hand was one of the best 映画 ディズニー has made. Jane was really a unique character, Wendy was way better, Captain Hook was toned down, and Smee was actually funny for once, the ロスト boys were annoying but it wasn't to the point where I just couldn't handle watching the movie, it was enough to portray the character, Peter Pan was actually really cool, and the movie had a もっと見る smooth flow. I didn't like the songs, but the アニメーション was beautiful and I loved it. 1年以上前

Ugh, whenever the subject of an LGBT princess or Disney character comes up on here I get a headache. Why? Because then we begin with the arguments and disagreements and it just annoys me a bit. Actually, a few months ago we had decided not to bring up that subject because a lot of arguments arise from controversial topics like that. Plus, people sometimes disrespect each other's opinions on this and the community feel that we have temporarily leaves and things become more tense. Not that we should never ever mention the possibility of an LGBT character but we shouldn't focus to much on it. I get annoyed whenever debates on it come up in real life so I don't want to see more arguing on that subject here on Fanpop. Is this an unpopular opinion? Or am I just too diplomatic for these sorts of things? Who knows. Keep in mind that I'm not saying that the whole club gets tense and that we all begin to fight but the polls can get ugly pretty quickly and sometimes these disagreements can lead users to dislike each other. Also, I must clarify that it's not like we're seeing this subject a lot all over the club but it has been in the polls lately and that reminded me of this opinion. Why are my opinions so long? lol

Where do I stand on this subject? Mwahahaha the world may never know. Well, the worldly probably doesn't care anyway lol but anyway, I'm not getting into that :)
Silverrose1991 commented…
I don't like the arguments either - even the ones I get into - but we can't just sweep the matter under the rug. Though I do think that we already had many "Do あなた want a LGBTQ+ princess?" アンケー this year. I think we should wait another year, because the general consensus has remained the same (unfortunately). Otherwise, I'm really excited for princesslullaby's gay crossover couples countdowns. Oh, and I think あなた support the idea of a LGBT princess but not now because it would be controversial, but I may be wrong. 1年以上前

あなた just spoke the truth, my friend! I may not like the LGBT thing, but it DOES get old pretty fast.

I prefer Disney's "dark age" movies. I dislike the newer ones like Tangled and Frozen. I'm not fond of the renaissance and I could do with out some of the classic ones. I like stages after the classics and after the renaissance. Some of my favorites are The Sword and The Stone, 101 Dalmatians, Alice in Wonderland, Hunch Back of Notre Dame, Brother Bear and Hercules.

As a Mulan fan, I get annoyed when people are bitter about Mulan's popularity. I've heard a million times ''I hate how Mulan never gets bashed and blablabla.'' I mean, criticize her all you want but it's a little sad that most of the ''bad things'' said about her are about her fans.

I'm kind of torn at what to say. I am a HUGE ムーラン fan, I adore her in every possible way.

Mostly because of the demons, Hunchback doesn't actually 表示する anything demonic beside the part when Frollo almost literally falls into hell. PaTF shows demons and witch doctors and play some witch doctors as good. Also dragging the shadow and getting sucked into hell was pretty traffic, not just a tragic fall.

I agree with _CatWoman_ and I like both of them because I like animated films with darker elements although I understand why some people find them inappropriate for children.

Aurora, Merida and Belle are my prettiest DPs, they're absolutely stunning. I don't find them plain, overrated or homely. Just the opposite actually.

I agree on Merida, for me she's the third prettiest DP. But I completely disagree on Belle and Aurora, I find them both sort of "overrated" in the beauty department (Air 名言・格言 because their really is no such thing as something being overrated) Aurora is 12th on my 一覧 because she's kind of plain and I hate how fake and perfect they tried to make her look. Her hair color looks bleached and her skin is pink. Belle is 9th and while she moved up two spots, I still find her plain. 1年以上前

I don't really get the appeal in listing animated characters based on beauty. Just from the fact of being animated characters, they're all going to have the same symmetrical faces, same Disneyfied large eyes and same Disney standard Unrealistic Hair (TM). Any other differences the girls have such as noses or lips are usually drawn that way to categorize the girl by race, and I feel a bit unsettled to judge the characters based on that. (For example the majority opinion on Fanpop seems to be that the more Caucasian noses are the most appealing. See this poll for example: link
Tiana and Mulan's noses are criticized a lot for being too stubby, while Jasmines is criticized for being to large, yet the groups of people that these girls represent, have the exact same features.)

In addition, with judging animated characters, you are forced to judge them based on the frame you are currently seeing, which can be entirely different to the ones displayed at other times. For example, Pocahontas is repeatedly described as looking like she has no nose based on this picture: link whereas in this still right after, there is no doubt that she has one: link.

My central argument comes down to the point that these characters where specifically drawn so that they would looking appealing to the most number of people. If any of these characters existed as real live human beings they would be drop dead gorgeous. So any comparison between these characters is based on completely arbitrary factors such as the still you are currently studying, or a bit more unsettlingly, subconscious racism.
Silverrose1991 commented…
I do think あなた have a lot of reason about the race factor. I've been trying to be もっと見る open to different kinds of beauty lately, since these caucasian feautures have been presented to me によって society as the ideal of beauty. For example, most black women that magazines and the public find beautiful have thinner features, wavy/straight hair, lighter skin, etc. However, I still find interesting ranking these animated characters によって beauty. It's fun and we can't just create this policy of not having women of different races in a same beauty 一覧 or, in real life, participating in the same beauty contest. To the women of one race, it'll create the feeling of superiority または even inferiority, that "their beauty can't compare to ours". Plus, it's a bit segregrational. 1年以上前

Just look at this article: link It's about the most beautiful black woman and the majority has very caucasian-esque features. 1年以上前

People like to talk about supposed bad character development in films like Frozen, Tangled, PaTF, and Mulan but, honestly, I feel that the 3 classic films have the worst character development since none of the characters ever change. Every character is exactly the same at the end of the film than they are at the beginning except for the happy ending. I don't see how that can be considered good character development compared to the characters in the more modern films that I at least change at some point in the film. Don't get me wrong, I like the classic films and Snow White is one of my favorite DPs but the characters are all pretty one dimensional with the 3 princesses being the most complex characters and even then they are very perfect,pproper young ladies and we don't ever get to see much in the way of flaws from them. I don't think that they are bad characters at all but they aren't as complex as the more modern ones. Yes, the classics are products of their time but so are all the princesses to an extent, so is everything for that matter to an extent, but just because the films were made decades ago that doesn't mean that complex characters or character development did not exist back then. Disney just chose not to develop the characters or make them complex. What I'm trying to say is that if someone is going to put down the characters in the modern films for having bad development or not being complex then I expect them to say the same or even worse about the classic DP characters. I ramble too much, I've even forgotten why I even wrote this in the first place lol. Is this even an unpopular opinion?
avatar_tla_fan commented…
Well, since I disagree, it's probably popular. xD. Our opinions are so opposite, wow. I think the classics are very complex and interesting characters. The only DP who I don't think is complex is Mulan. Her personality is pretty generic and uninteresting to me. 1年以上前

Ooh, I have another one! Even though I love the characters, music, and animation of Brave, I find the story very unoriginal and I get easily bored with it. I like it less and less every time I see it. It is easily one of Pixar's least original films and it lacks Disney magic. It is at the bottom of my list along with Cinderella. It's strange how the plot alone makes me like it less than most of the DP films but it just doesn't excite me, I wish that it were more epic and action packed, like the trailers made it out to be. It is not a bad film but it just seems sort of average to me, it lacks that special something that makes me want to rewatch a film. That being said, I love Merida! She's in my top 5. See, it's weird because the film does have interesting characters, gorgeous animation, and a lovely score but a great, memorable, exciting plot is what seems to be missing for me and keeps me from loving this movie.

I agree 100%. The trailers made it seem so mystical and magical (the ancient setting and mysterious wisps) and for the story to be a big, epic adventure to save the kingdom. If they just had that story (and もっと見る female characters and less obnoxious slapstick boy humor) I'd think it was a great movie. 1年以上前

I like Brave, but I sort of agree if it was one of the least fresh and original ピクサー・アニメーション・スタジオ 映画 and it's もっと見る like a typical of ディズニー movies. Ironically Wreck it Ralph which was from Disney, has ピクサー・アニメーション・スタジオ formula in its storyline. So I though they are switched each other, lol. 1年以上前

This is REALLY unusual, but bare with me. I used to work in Renaissance Fairs, and researched and dressed in historically accurate European women's clothes. Naturally, I'm privy to ye olde women's underthings. And it drives me CRAZY when films that depict Western women from olden times (basically pre-1920's Flapper Movement) show them to be bare-legged under their skirts; particularly those with skirts that go down to their ankles. And that includes Disney's fairy tale era women.

I can understand Briar Rose since she was raised in the woods with fairies who knew little to nothing about humans, Rapunzel since she was raised alone in a tower in the forest by the centuries-old Gothel and is barefoot anyway, and Elsa's ice dress since it was of her own design, but there's little excuse for the others.

With few exceptions, Western women always had their entire legs covered under their skirts. They had at least stockings that went up their legs, tied in place by some sort of garter, and over that some sort of knee-length bloomers. You wouldn't see bare legs flashing like Snow White's iconic yellow and blue dress, Ariel's town dress, or Belle's standard blue dress. I know those aren't the most historically accurate, but it still makes me crazy. Especially the modern ones. In Tangled, we see a glimpse of Gothel's and the Queen's bare leg between their skirts and boots. In Frozen, we see a brief glimpse of the Queen's and Anna's bare leg.

The most "accurate" I've seen is Elsa's and Anna's coronation dresses. Even though Elsa's wearing dainty flats instead of boots (as Snow, Ariel and Belle were), she's got tights over her legs. Even when she's running, we never see a flash of her bare leg. And of course we seen Anna's coronation bloomers many times--which really begs the question of why she's suddenly bare-legged under her supposedly warmer winter clothes (as we see when she tries to climb the cliff in front of Kristoff).

I don't know. If you don't agree, you can defend it all you want. "It's fiction." "It's a fairy tale." "The outfits aren't exactly historically accurate anyway." I know, I know. But it still bothers me.

I wish PATF hadn't pounded the "wishing and believing in magic is dumb, you have to work hard" theme into our heads. You can get a point across without being so repetitive and anvilicious about it. (That strongly goes for Frozen too.) It's also pretty silly coming from Disney. I also wish they hadn't made Tiana so obsessed with her restaurant. Being fixated on a business can come off as a little greedy. Can't she have other interests or hobbies?
Tygers_Eye commented…
I rather agree except for two things. 1) UNFORTUNATELY, people ARE dumb enough that ディズニー needs to be repetitive and anvilicious about it. Most people are saying "Frozen is the first ディズニー movie to portray sisterly love/show あなた don't need a man to save the day/not end in marriage/show that marrying someone あなた just met is dumb" etc BECAUSE it's not subtle about it the way past ディズニー films were. 1年以上前
Tygers_Eye commented…
2) I feel Tiana's obsession with her restaurant was a product of its time. Everyone at the time was criticizing ディズニー for having their princesses want to find 愛 (classic princesses) and/or have really vague desires (like Belle and Pocahontas). So they gave Tiana a specific motivation, only for the crowds to say "Eh, that's too specific. Girls who don't want a restaurant または see the floating lights can't relate to it," so they changed the motivations back to being もっと見る vague for Frozen. 1年以上前

I've talked about it before, but I need to rant again. It really annoys me when people complain about Prince Charming from Cinderella. The arguments always center around "he only danced with her because she was pretty!" or "he didn't search for her himself!"

Duh, of course he didn't. He wasn't the one who arranged the search: his father was. The Prince merely said he would marry the girl whom the slipper fits, and the King twisted his words (News flash: Charming wasn't going to marry any girl whose feet were small enough!). He probably got mad when he found out his father went behind his back.

As for ignoring all the other girls but Cinderella: it was love at first sight. There were other beautiful maidens at the ball (Princess Frederica whatever-her-name and others), but none of them struck with him. When he saw Cinderella, the only girl who wasn't waiting in line to greet him, he simply felt drawn to her. That's the way things work in folklore and even other fiction sometimes.

Okay, done ranting.

I rather agree. The Duke explaings the absurdity of 愛 at first sight when the prince spots シンデレラ and walks up to her, 表示中 that the filmmakers KNOW it's unrealistic and absurd, but in this case, for this story, true 愛 does happen. And I can't agree もっと見る about the father going behind the son's back. People who whine "He didn't even go to 検索 for her!" I think, "Have あなた not seen this movie since あなた were 3?" The film makes it clear that while the prince 発言しました he would not rest until he found the girl who fits the slipper, what he MEANT was he would not rest until he found the girl who OWNS the slipper. However, his dad wanted him to get married ASAP and so deliberately misinterpreted his words. "But Sire! This slipper can fit any number of girls!" "That's his problem.

I'm really growing disillusioned with the Disney Princess lineup, for all the creativity it stifles and conformity it demands. Disney princess movies all seem to follow a standard formula, Disney princesses have to fit a standard mold, and those that don't are configured until they do.

Just look at the latest addition to the lineup. "The Snow Queen" is a very unique, atypical fairy tale about a little peasant girl who sets off alone to save her best friend from the "beautiful, powerful, dangerous, cold" and enigmatic Snow Queen, and is hindered and helped by many women (kind and cruel) and animals she encounters on the way. What does Disney do? Why, gut it and reconfigure the few parts they didn't throw away to fit the standard Disney Princess movie formula, of course. Make the little peasant girl a teenage princess to sell dolls, make the Snow Queen the princess's sister to make her "relatable" (and get two princesses for the price of one), add a male guide to enforce girls' dependence on men (in-story and out), change all the sidekicks and background characters from female to male to give the film an all-male presence to appeal to men who might be grossed out by the two female protagonists, etc.

And Merida! Ohhh. She was designed to be the atypical, a-romantic princess who is an unabashed tomboy, loves archery and swordsmanship, can't stand the confines of silk dresses or restrained hair, isn't interested in romance or ready for marriage, doesn't sing, etc. So what does Disney do? Exactly what Merida and the girls meant to relate to her hate. Redesign her to fit the standard princess mold, showing that all girls should be interested in makeup, hair, fashion, and sparkling dresses even if they claim to not be interested. Same with Mulan.

I could go on and on. Like the Nostalgia Chick said, they're all teenage coming-of-age romance-driven fairy tales. And God forbid the movie or one of the princesses deviate from the cookie-cutter mold even a little, Disney will gut it until it is.

I don't get the appeal of Fantasia. Unpopular opinion but I much prefer the sequel.

And I don't like how when Doug Walker made his silly "Disneycember" videos everybody changed their opinions about these movies to match his.

I like the non-princess movies just as much as the princess ones (and depending on which movie, sometimes more or less). I like Bambi and The Jungle Book just as much as Sleeping Beauty or Beauty and the Beast.

I find non-Disney movies to be as good or sometimes even better than the Disney ones (The Last Unicorn and Secret of Kells are personal favorites of mine).

It was either the 上, ページのトップへ 11 dumbest Spiderman moments または the 白鳥, スワン princess review) I started actively watching his 動画 because of how much I agreed with him and the things I saw first watch of the movie. Sometimes my opinions change when I watch his videos, but only when he explains his reasoning and brings up really good points. I sometimes agree (The 動画 brought up) and I sometimes disagree (I am STILL cringing at his Full house review) 1年以上前

First, I also much prefer Fantasies 2000 to the original. I also like many of the non princess Disney just as much if not more than several of the princess films. Finally, I do think that their are several non Disney animated films that are just as good if not better than some Disney films. We seem to agree on quite a bit :) I don't know who Doug Walker is though. Oh, and the Secret of Kells is quite nice, I just don't like the ending.

It's not an unpopular opinion, just a random headcanon, so I thought it'd fit here: I imagine that if all the DPs saw "Frozen" together, during the "Love is an Open Door" scene, all but Snow White, Cinderella and Aurora would believe Hans' act. They would just narrow their eyes and say "How can you believe this? Puh-lease, it's obviously not true love. The poor duckling is being tricked!"

Yeah, really random, I know... Ok, I'll just go now before you gain some of my weirdness.

Apparently this is an unpopular opinion, I'm actually o.k., maybe even glad, that Pixar will probably make Toy Story 4.

I didn't see it as a sad ending, もっと見る as a bittersweet one. Even though Andy didn't find joy in playing with toys anymore, he was able to give them to someone who was fully capable of living the adventure. And in the moment of transition, both where able to find joy, the young girl from the toys, and Andy from the sharing. It was incredibly beautiful and perfect ending in my opinion.

Remember how Elsa wears her conservative coronation dress, opera gloves, and proper bun to symbol how formal, stifled, and repressed she feels? And then during "Let It Go" she changes into her revealing, gloveless, loose-braided ice outfit to symbolize how liberated she feels? And then she stays in that exact same outfit through the whole movie?

I kind of wish they had altered her outfit after Anna reveals the kingdom is Frozen over, or the guards come for her, or when she's in prison; some time over the movie to show she's lapsing back into her fear and self-repression. It doesn't have to be anything major; maybe a more conservative version of her ice dress, or a thicker cape or ice coat she wraps herself in to show how much more vulnerable she feels, or an ice crown and gloves to show she's reminding herself she's still responsible for her subjects and needs to reign her powers in again. Something.

I LOVE symbolism, and love how Elsa's two outfits symbolize her emotional states. Which is why I find it JARRING how Elsa stays in her symbolically liberated ice dress (without so much as a minor accessory alteration) even when she's once again burdened with her old anxiety and self-repression.

I personally would have liked it better if Elsa wore her coronation dress and gloves at the beginning, changed into her iconic ice dress during "Let It Go," then had a more conservative (or even ripped-frayed) version of her ice outfit after Anna reveals the kingdom's frozen over and she's back to stressing, then ends up back in her iconic ice dress at the very end when she regains her confidence and thaws winter.

Maybe a less conservative version of her coronation gown, without the high-collar and the gloves. Also, a different hairstyle, like this: link 1年以上前

Okay, what would you guys think if Disney openly made a princess with a mental/physical illness? Not something like Elsa which her ice powers were a "metaphor" for depression but actually the real deal, she even announces her condition at one point in the movie. Maybe we could have an autistic/aspergers princess. Please don't be angry! I myself suffer from depression and anxiety and have huge problems with my social skills, so I'm also speaking of this matter as an interest, I don't want to be insensitive.
Tygers_Eye commented…
I wouldn't mind a princess who behaves like someone on the spectrum; displays a lot of the same symptoms, seems to see the world differently, and uses her unique worldview and problem-solving skills to tell a もっと見る unique story and resolution to the plot. But if she's a ディズニー Princess, as in a ye olde tyme faery tale setting, that was before they had modern psychology and diagnostics. If she said, "Oh, I have Aspergers" the story would have to dive into how she knows that, who diagnosed her, how it affects her life, how it tends to affect other people like her, and who had time for that in Medieval Europe? No one, that's who. あなた fit in または あなた didn't. If あなた wanted to fit in, あなた acted like everyone else. It was that simple. Again, I wouldn't mind someone who might display common characteristics, but I'd rather the movie kept it vague and focus on how it makes her a unique, relatable, likable person, not a character with that syndrom. 1年以上前

I'll say it; I find the Disney community here much more likable and welcoming than the Disney fandom on tumblr.
This place encourages open communication, friendly debate and it's a warm and welcoming place.

I mean, tumblr may seem cool at first, with the graphics and "funny jokes" and such, and i agree with the need of more diversity in Disney films, but then you get into the nasty side of tumblr where misinformation and emotional manipulation spreads around wildly, art theft and doxxing happens all the time, racism is rampant, immatureness is encouraged and people are overly angry and hostile and want you to be angry with everything and everybody must have the same disney opinions (you love frozen, you love tangled). If you have a slight commentary against a princess you're immediately hounded and it's forbidden to like something like Bambi or whatever over most of the Princess films. it sucks. Now the newest thing is that BH6 is bad because Hiro is biracial and Honey is a white latina, and according to tumblr biracial people are scum and there are only dark latinos...It's just sooo...*donks head*

This is going to be really controversial, and I deeply apologize, but I have to get it off my chest somewhere and this seems like the safest environment.

Going off what scarletunicorn said above: As of Frozen and BH6, I feel like Disney is sort of cheating by making ethnic characters who tend to look and sound very white. As in, you would never know they were part of this ethnicity unless you were told, so most casual viewers (which is most of their audience) would just assume they're white. Yet, by making them ethnic on paper, they can brush off people accusing them of imbalanced racial representation by saying "Kristoff is Sami and Honey is Latina, so pipe down."

And I know this opens a whole can of worms. I'm not saying an ethnic person has to have darker pigment. I'm not saying characters have to be obvious stereotypes and caricatures of their respective ethnicity and/or culture. I'm not saying they're less valid or human or likable/relatable/interesting by being ethnic characters who happen to be pale and blonde. I'm not saying that, because I don't think it's true. Pale, blonde Sami and Latina people exist and deserve representation, acknowledgement and validation as well.

However, from a story standpoint... since these character's ethnicity or cultural background never comes up in the film, is never explored (we don't exactly see Kristoff's home village or Honey's family life), and doesn't seem to influence their personalities or worldviews one way or the other to the point that the filmmakers could literally just SAY "X is white" and it would change nothing (except maybe Honey's VA's delivery of the lines, but then you could reason that Honey is very culturally accepting and rolls her r's because she's using Hiro's correct Japanese pronunciation)... I wonder what's the point of making a character who is X in name only other than so they can point and say, "See? We have a character that is X, so stop hounding us."

I don't know. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe that's not their intention. Maybe I'm the one that's racist for saying it. All I do know is that, MUCH LIKE how I feel Disney keeps playing both sides of the fence by harping on how love-at-first-sight is stupid but love after a day-and-a-half is genuine, I kind of feel like Disney is playing both sides of the fence here.

Again, I apologize if what I just said is offensive or off the mark. That's just how I see it.

The thing is, the movie ends with her not really forming an emotional bond with anyone. Sure, she learns control of her powers, but after years of separating herself from the world she never really forms a bond with anyone that shows she no longer afraid of hurting people. I mean, does she even have a friend? The movie doesn't really give a lot of closure when it comes to her emotional state, so I think it makes sense for people to try and fill that gap with a relationship. 1年以上前

I think I've said this before, but I find The Little Mermaid and Prince Eric to be very phonocentric. For those who don't know, phonocentrism is the attitude that spoken language is superior to sign and written. This can extend toward people; that people who talk out loud are better than those who are deaf, mute, or sign.

And boy does Eric have this attitude in abundance. After Ariel saves him, all he gets out of the encounter is: "She had the most beautiful voice," and all he remembers about her is, "That voice! I can't get it out of my head." And we SEE Ariel from Eric's perspective as he wakes up, so I don't buy the "He couldn't see what she looked like so he had nothing else to go on" excuse. Even if he can't make out her minute features, we can still see her warm presence, adoring eyes, loving smile, and felt her tender touch.

In fact, he even recognizes her when he sees her again after she becomes human. However, the SECOND he leans she can't speak, he suddenly loses interest. "Oh, then you couldn't be who I thought." Oh, I'm sorry. Ariel looking like her, smiling like her, having the same adoring expression as her, and the same small gentle fingers as her doesn't matter, only the VOICE matters. No voice? No interest.

And you can argue that he starts to fall for Ariel over the two days they spend together, but she remains his second choice. He continues to play his recorder, fixating on the voice. Which leads to Grimsby telling him perhaps the best lesson in the whole movie: "If I may say, far better than any dream girl is one of flesh and blood; one warm and caring, and right before your eyes."

However, Eric visibly gives up on the voice with a heavy heart, and is clearly SETTLING for Ariel (the girl of flesh and blood, warm and caring, and right before his eyes). So much so that the SECOND he hears the voice a few moments later, he forgets his resolve and RUSHES to see who it belongs to. I guess the real girl is second choice to the voice after all.

Even after Eric's enchantment is removed and he sees Ariel again, what is his first reaction: "You can talk! You're The One! It was you all the time!" Oh, I see. When she was just a real girl who looked and acted like the one who rescued him, she was his second choice. Now that she has THAT VOICE that clearly means more to him than anything, SUDDENLY she's "The One."

The voice could have literally belonged to anyone in the crowd and he would have been "in love" with that girl because the voice matters to him more than the girl does.

This movie is hideously phonocentric.

I disagree. The reason why Eric is so obsessed with the voice is because it's the only thing he can connect back to the girl who saved him. Even if Ariel looked like the image he saw while almost unconscious it wouldn't make sense for her to be the same girl because she can't speak. It's not better または worse, there's no judgment または any phonocentric theme. There's just the basic fact that Areil and the girl who saved him cannot be one and the same. And I think it makes perfect sense for him to be obsessed with this mystery girl. I mean she saved his life, his very existence, wouldn't あなた want to find the person who did that and thank them too? And It also makes sense for him to say that she's the One because he's likely had the suspicion the whole time that she was but it would just make no sense for who to be. But now suddenly that she has a voice of course it would make sense, not because she's better for having it, but because no logical leaps have to be made. 1年以上前
disnerdtobe commented…
The voice is もっと見る like symbolism in the story than the actual thing. Hey, it's better than falling in 愛 only becuase of her looks and because she was PUUURTY. I don't really see Eric as settling. I think it was rather open-minded of him to respect Ariel and take her around anyways but he's also a romantic at heart. あなた could tell that he really did like her but was just unsure cause he was confused. 1年以上前

After I say that I don't like CGI, I get really annoyed with the people that jump to explain that they don't really care about visuals, just the story. If "STORY" was the only component of a movie, I'd agree. But films are a visual medium. You have to sit and stare at something for an hour or two or three; especially animation since the visuals are constructed from nothing. Ideally it's a constructed world and characters that you find pleasing to look at instead of something you find dull, ugly, unnerving, or an eyesore.

I don't like the way CGI looks, especially characters. If I have to sit and stare at it for an hour and a half, the unpleasing visuals are going to pull me out of the story and experience. I can't be invested in characters when I can't even stand to look at them, or if the way they move or the way they look when they're wet remind me of living dolls (which is a huge phobia of mine).

If "STORY" is literally all that matters, then read a book or a screenplay. Since it's just words on a paper, the story is literally all that matters. But in visual and auditory mediums where moving pictures and accompanying voice work and music are put in front of us, I don't know about you, but it has to be a picture that I actually like to look at.
