@Trigger__Happy 2 yıl önce
It certainly would be a nice step forward for Disney to start teaching the younger generations, especially young women, that it’s okay, and beautiful to have imperfections. Because so many of us have grown up in a society that expects you to look perfect, and if you don’t, you’re “ugly” or “unattractive.” Its bred this whole ideology in young girls and women that’s caused disorders like anorexia and social anxiety. It’s okay to strive to better yourself, while still not hating or self depreciating how and who you are.
@@GabsARV I think her dragon design fits her character, it bugs me the design is used for the other dragons because it fits Sisu more the most in my opinion, her not looking like a traditional asian dragon makes Sisu more unique, in my opinion..

Anyone else notice just how many people the Druun wiped out? If there were 5 clans to begin with, Tail is essentially a person-less wasteland, Heart got abandoned when the Gem split, and Spine got wrecked by the Druun with only a sole survivor, there were only 2 clans left: Talon, built on the water, and Fang, walled off by water on an artificial island. That means that about 60% of the world got wiped out just by the Druun.

I think we need to touch on how great the animation is, especially when things are wet. The slight darkening of Benja's gloves after he dips them in the water in the beginning, or the shine on Raya's hair after everyone comes back, or the way Sisu's "hair" kind of clings to her head when she does that little spin in the water. Even the shine on Raya's cheek after she wipes her tear right before she awakens Sisu. The animation in this movie is so smooth and detailed in some shots and it's beautiful the whole way through.

The trust theme would be fine if it weren't so incomplete. The problem is that Namaari lacks any kind of redemption arc. She betrayed Raya, and in a way that completely destroyed the known world - not a small betrayal - and does nothing at no time ever in the film to indicate that she is deserving of a second chance. Without that redemption arc, without requiring that Namaari demonstrate *some* kind of desire to change, the trust theme is dangerous. That's how people get trapped in abusive relationships. The world, the real world, our world isn't suffering due to a lack of trust, it's suffering due to a lack of repentance (meaning change of heart, not even religious). Were people who caused harm more willing to admit their wrong and actively change, trust would immediately follow.

The movie overall would have worked so much better if they had left out just the few seconds that showed Namaari’s finger on the crossbow trigger during the standoff scene. As it is, you have a point: the overall scene plays out like Sisu’s trust got her killed and Raya was right NOT to trust and just acted a little too late. But think about how the scene would have gone without that closeup. If her finger HADN’T been on the trigger, it would imply that she might have chosen to put the bow down-which would have made sense based on her conversation with Virana earlier in the movie, she seemed on board with the idea of bringing Sisu back and re-making the gem. Raya’s sudden, UNtrusting move to disarm her would have then been what caused the crossbow to shoot (In no expert on crossbows, but something slamming into a loaded one that’s ready to shoot could conceivably break something and/or release the tension in a way that would make the bolt launch)-in fact when I first saw the movie that’s what I thought had happened. This would make Namaari’s later line that Raya is also responsible for Sisu being shot make a lot more sense, and make the point that *sometimes*, (not always), doing things out of fear and distrust can make situations worse.

I'm a huge sucker for dragons, and elemental type stuff where different tribes have different elements or areas they live in, so this movie got me hooked in almost instantly. I'm kind of glad that they didn't make Raya and Namaari into those "secret siblings" cliche because that's originally what I thought would happen. The scene where they all turned to stone would've really got me if the credits started to roll.
When he started listing southeast asian weapons and martial arts i got really giddy for no reason lmfao. As a southeast asian individual who hails from the philippines, it's so amazing how he was able to recognize fighting styles, and research the weapons used by Namaari, and Raya, like the Filipino Arnis. These were small bits I didn't think western people would get, but i'm pleasently suprised! thank you
I like how the Tail chief died. She didn't just get turned into stone and come back with the rest. She hid herself behind a fortress and slowly wasted away because she was too paranoid to trust anyone else further reinforcing the message in this movie

I also want to point out the position of her hand. She is mimicking the stone-statue people with a "giving" gesture. Now, I don't know how to fully interpret this observation with how she also made herself part of the final trap of her tomb. One idea I had was that she set up that trap, but as the last moments of her life come, she realizes her utter mistake and made one final gesture to atone. Or she made that gesture on purpose to draw the tomb raider in the hopes of giving them a false sense of security (like it almost did to Sisu).

"Sisu" is a word in Finnish. It doesn't translate well into English but it's basically the definition of "not giving up" and "having guts to do so". Or as a simple google search says "strength of will" But I don't think the producers knew the word existed although the word describes Sisu in the film pretty well.

One thing I caught in this movie that I wanted to share was that the main vehicle for getting around in the whole movie is a floating restaurant! As the adventure party gathers, they have many scenes of them interacting and becoming family in a place meant for food. I think there is a good theme of eating together brings people together thing going on, set up by Raya's dad talking about the soup made from different ingredients across the land. As the story goes on, we see the party bonding more and more over food the entire time!

Moana is very similar I will admit. It’s got some good action scenes and literally the rock as a demigod. But there are two things that defeat it in the end from being an action movie. One it’s a musical. Not trying to crap on the genre, but action musical won’t work. It’s why Hercules isn’t considered action. And two, the fighting and chases was a focus of Raya. So much detail goes into how Raya fights and without magic. Maui really only fights one person in the film, and it’s mostly through shapeshifting snd trickery, not full on force (in keeping with Maui of course).
@michaelyoung7261 2 yıl önce
It’s always so refreshing hearing someone else sharing the love of treasure planet!! Brings the good memories of childhood and those innocent adventures imbued with imagination to the surface!
Another fun detail I love about this movie is when Raya comes up to have her final confrontation with Namaari. When she brings the stone up and repealed the Druun coming towards her, two of them are shown being repelled, showing that one life just ended so that they could replicate, meaning they had JUST killed Namarri's mom or relatively recently. This gives her even more reason to be angry and spiteful towards Raya, giving the last battle that much more tension.
@-namekuji-1973 9 aylar önce
My list of things I loved about this movie + my list of things that could have been changed: -The effects. Just the lighting of the water and tone of Raya’s skin are stupidly good animation. -The dragons designs. They are long fluffy magic noodles. That is just beautiful. -Shisu’s misunderstanding of the world around her. It makes sense that, after the last thing you remember doing o save the world is having to trust people, you would naturally think that everyone is to be trusted. -The angry old lady chief. Idk why. She makes me happy even tho she betrayed Shisu. -The FOOD EFFECTS. GOD IT MADE ME SO HUNGRY WATCHING -The fact that Tounge(I think??) likes the baby because he misses his own child. -Just seeing how the hatred had changed Raya after Shisu was killed. She was ready to kill. It added a great effect. -The symbolism. How, because Shisu is the last dragon, and she is a water dragon, her being killed drained the water. Water truly is ‘magical’ in this world, as it acts as protection against the Druun. Also, how when they basically become un-stoned, the rain is what washes it away. Rain is water. It is Shisus magic and trust that saves them. Now, things that should have been changed: -A better Namaari redemption arc. We didn’t have much of her in the movie. I believe that there should have been more of her realizing how corrupted the world was, and how she wanted to change it. -A close up of her finger off the trigger, not on. If they had showed that she was hesitating on shooting and had decided not to. If that had been shown, it would have created the impression that Namaari had finally been redeemed. However, it was Raya lashing out in her distrust that killed Shisu. I’ve operated a few crossbows, and hitting them while they are loaded DEFINITELY sets them off. That was all for now. I will update more later.

She's sweet, loyal, wise, majestic, spiritual, strong but gentle, and an extraordinarily kind soul.

One detail that always stood out to me in this movie is that when the Druun were closing in, there was one citizen from each clan gathered in the same place, and even though they all came from completely different backgrounds and places, they decided to put trust into each other in a moment where they knew they had to let go of their differences and past. Absolutely love this movie; it honestly deserves more recognition for the amount of hard work that was put into its production. And give it up for James Newton Howard for creating such a majestic and amazing soundtrack, indeed an excellent masterpiece.
I appreciate your positivity even about movies that a lot of people aren’t super fond of, but with win counter 152, I think that the whole thing of raya giving Naomi the option of either A. Turning to stone and dying with everyone else, or B. Not turning to stone and saving anyone, does not show trust, Naomi has to put together the stone or else she will die, that does not mean that she cares at all about Raya, I mean even the worst people in history would do that because it involves self preservation. When your trust is broken, the person who broke your trust should be the one to take the first step to mend it, not the other way around. What they should have done is given Naomi another option of getting out with the stone and her life, leaving raya to be turned to stone, but still have her choose to save everyone to actually put meaning into the moment.

I realized something about the scene leading to the Dragon Gem breaking. All the Fang people saw the firework and immediately knew what the signal was for. This means that Namaari was NOT the only one in on the plan to steal the gem, and based on her other interactions with her mother, I doubt it was even her idea. Also, Chief Virana seems like a smart enough ruler she would have given flares and instructions to multiple people, not just her own daughter, so the plan would have more chances at succeeding. You do mention some of this at the end of the video, but I just really like when movies that give redemption arcs to the main antagonists don’t make them completely unlikeable from the start.

@dionadair8195 2 yıl önce
Something I think a whole lot of people miss is that the message of the movie isn't simply about trust, it's about mutual trust. Every instance where trust turns out to be a mistake is one where the characters are interacting with people who have been told not to trust their whole lives, and in Namaari's case, she's also being manipulated/instructed by her mother, who doesn't trust the other lands. Ultimately, a lack of mutual trust created the literal apocalypse (twice, according to Sisu), but its trust that saves the world and begins the process of repairing it at the end of the film. Namaari finally decided to take a risk for someone other than Fang, and Raya and co. realized that holding onto hatred and grudges (which have kept their world back for, oh, 500 years) was only going to make things worse. Edit: yeah, I made this comment, like, halfway through. Thank you, Cinemawins, for addressing this issue and taking a new angle on it I hadn't seen before. Your point is honestly stronger than mine, since it faces a hard truth of life: that sometimes, trust has to go one way before it becomes mutual.

I think the reason the Dragon Siblings chose Sisu is because she’s the weakest and there’s two ways this could work The Druun always go for the stronger People/Dragons, so they knew Sisu would have a chance to end the Druun And the other way is they wanted Sisu to become stronger and more responsible
I just love this movie, kinda wished it was a bit longer to explore better the world built in the story, the different populations and all, it was really an interesting thing. The best part was watching it with family and friend, there was my friend's granny asking: "What do binturi and dep la mean?" and we explained that, researching a bit, the funny thing is that they seems to be almost like an angry flirt (like "dep la" beig similar to the vietnamese "dep" that means beautiful and the fact that it is translated as "strangely beautiful" and "best friends"), she just exclaimed: "Oh, there was no need for strange languages! Those two just need to fuck the tension between them off and stop babbling about the furry snake! It's clear as day!" (Just adore that woman). The dragons' desings and powers are so cool too, probably among the best fictional dragons we ever had in a movie that could have goon for goofier and less cool desings (since it is a family product, it can happen that some choose the more "easy and almost-ugly" desing thinking that kids won't mind those instead of something cool that can interest more people). But now, let's talk about how Namaari's mother could have just be quiet about the: "Yeah, we should just force a powerful and mighty beast to come with us and take the glory, instead of seriously helping and clear our name!", that woman just had to shut up and Sisu would have avoided death and Namaari would have avoided the possible trauma, even if the final fight was cool as fuck to watch.

So a really cool thing, Sisu's "water stepping" is in the "Avatar" world as well! In the Avatar Kyoshi books she learns a technique that all benders can use called Dust Stepping- Water Benders do this (little suspended water/ice platforms they leap on) Airbenders and Firebenders do short bursts of air or fire, and Earthbenders grab dust/sand/small rocks and jump off those

I mean the message on the movie was certainly lead astray, but I'd put that mostly down to it being really difficult to see any signs that namari was worth placing trust in again. After a while I did realize that the way she actually tries to help (saving tuk tuk) after her big duel with raya is actually demonstrating some of her sincerity and may be the reason, along with sisu's faith in her that lead raya to risk it all and place her trust in namari. I'd argue that I would have preferred for have namari express some sort of remorse or ask for forgiveness from raya before earning that trust back, although that would have stepped on the idea of raya having to take the first step.

I think my favorite versions of dragons always end up being closest to Sisu and her siblings in temperament. There's just something RIGHT about the intelligent, wise dragon, compared to the ravenous monster. Of course, I'm also incredibly fond of the look of western dragons, all big and wings and stuff, so...
@whitewolf1310 2 yıl önce
I completely agree with you. I like the look of both eastern and western dragons, but I can't stand it whenever they're portrayed as vicious evil monsters. I always saw dragons as majestic noble creatures that humans can look up to and be inspired by, like the most intelligent creature to ever walk the planet. I never saw them as something for humans to fear. I was born in the year of the dragon so I've always sort of identified myself with them, and as a kid I would get offended whenever I saw them portrayed negatively.

I went into this movie not knowing anything about it and having no expectations, and ended up loving it so much.

I hope the kids who grow up after watching this movie will remember it when they're in charge of the world.

The movie is already 1 year old!!! It’s gorgeously animated, Kelly Marie Tran and Awkafina give such fun, lighthearted performances, the mythology is well-put together, and making the statement of different nations coming together and learning to try and trust one another is done very well. I especially like the rivalry of Raya and her childhood friend. Ended up being a lot more enjoyable than I thought. It also continues to succeed in more representation as far as modern female Disney figures are concerned.
@NeroCM Yıl önce
The thing I think they did wrong was never returning to what Kumari said about that "first time I've had rice in a while" because that does not automatically equates to poverty in Fang. Right now in my country we have more apples than we know what to do with (literally, there was a scandal a bit back about farmers throwing apples away in ditches because they couldn't sell them) but we can't grow either rice nor dragonfruit nor... a lot of other stuff that needs different climates. Us not having dragonfruit does not equates to our country being poor. And in the movie they never show it one way or another. They put in that line about rice and assume everyone will think "oh, that means everyone except Heart is poor and famine-riddled" but it really doesn't. And when later on in the movie we see Fang it looks super green and prosperous. Personally, I think that line should be seen as a nod towards how Kumandra isn't united, so things that people have in Heart every day is a luxury in Fang but maybe something Fang has everyday will be a luxury for Heart and so forth.

Something I noticed when watching the movie is that at you look at Sisu’s older brother when Sisu’s family is using the gem (15:27 in the video) his hands are cupped like how the people who got turned to stone hands are, which means that the pose that those people have is technically them putting their trust in Sisu to use the gem.

I’m pretty sure that the other dragons only gave Sisu the gem because without her, there would be no water, so 99.999999999% of humanity would die.
Kumandra feels like such a rich and developed world, but so much of it went unexplored! I really wish this movie had been more of a success because then it would be more likely that we would get to return to Kumandra. Absolutely my favorite fantasy world.

Dunno if anyone things about this, but it really sucks that Raya's father missed like 6 YEARS of Raya's growth. That's time he'll never get back. It's like he went to sleep and she was a kid the last he saw her, and then the minute he woke up again, she was a full grown adult. Time passed for Raya, but for the chief it could have felt like the blink of an eye. That had to be so jarring, and I honestly don't think that they made that clear enough. He recognized her immediately, but I really would have appreciated some mention of 'how you've grown' or 'when did you get so big?'

So many shots in this movie looked soooo realistic it was amazing, and it was never unsettling (except for how real the Druun felt, but like kudos on it either way) it was just such a stunning movie to watch. On the same note, but as an aside: I know we already know that Disney and Pixar and most animation studios have perfected water, but when I watched this movie with my GF, and the scene were Sisu falls in the water and it shows a shot of it splashing up after her impact, yea... I legit paused the movie and went "ok, I'm sorry, I know this is emotional and all but LOOK AT THAT SPLASH! ARE WE SURE THAT WASN'T JUST A CLIP OF ACTUAL WATER SPLASHING???" and I thought of you and times when you've said similar things and I have been thinking about it since I watched the movie. So glad you enjoyed this movie!
The one thing that I love of what they did with this movie that makes it hit differently and stand out from other Asian cultured movies like Mulan is they actually got somebody on the scene who KNOWS about marital arts and the different styles, techniques and weapons they also did this with karate kid 2013, Jade Smith had to LEARN Kung Fu in order to do everything right.

The only thing I thought was disappointing about this movie was that they gave her a sword as their main weapon. Giving a main character a sword as a weapon in a Disney movie automatically tells you that they're never going to actually hurt anybody with it, because swords cause wounds that are way too bloody for a kids movie. If she had a cool staff or something that would be way more compelling cuz she could actually hit people with it. The final fight scene kind of lacks any drama because they might as well be swinging pool noodles at each other for how deadly their weapons are allowed to be.

I always assumed that the Druun were repelled by water because the last dragon alive was a water dragon and her element/source of her power repelled them, and that the only way the Druun can survive those elements was to kill the dragons. I mean, take into consideration that when Sisu was killed all of the water in the world disappeared. So, it makes sense that when a dragon dies its elements disappear too.

I honestly loved everything in this movie, all the way until the end. Just feels like the lesson is a little hamfisted, in this one. *Everything* else is amazing, though. The style, the animation, the choreography for the fights, the adventure, and most importantly the Sisu R34, were all 10/10. Just wish it was drawn out over a few movies, one for finding Sisu and then one for each gem piece. Or at least a 2 part movie. Maybe a show full of dragon shenanigans, like HTTYD had. Only complaint is that I feel like it would have been 1000% better if it went the "trust is earned, not freely given" route. But maybe that's just me being stung one too many times for trusting people I shouldn't have.
"stupid no dragon world" is a sentiment I feel every day. Also, was it just me, or was Raya: atld and Encanto way better (especially compared to the latest realizes *cough live-action-Mulan cough*)
