Descendants full movie review - Hidden Jewel
This movie is all good in intent, but there are some hidden agendas in this mix, which possibly could have toppled its possible success.
Basically, the actors are all good in intent, but they had to try possibly painfully hard to stay positive and make an intellectual point, in how they acted and what that says. Some of it is redundant, and some things stick out. For example, you can tell that Jay, the son of Jafar, makes a smile for the feelings of being different and modest. It made him one of my favorite characters and overall seemed extra meaningful in the big scheme of the movie as a whole. I'm 1/2 Asian, and I connected with him more than Mulan's daughter. His ethnicities are as follows: ?paternal - Scottish, Russian, possibly Blackfoot Native American ?maternal - Japanese, Chinese, Korean.
A 2nd point of the story, which led me to my rating, was that they presented it well, and tho a bit clashing yet modest, the art and fashion in it.
As to the importance of the hidden message, which seemed to emulate secret things.. I think it seemed a bit startling and a lot of chaos. Honestly, they all acted on command like in Operand conditioning of a dog salivating at the sound of a whistle unfortunately however.. like that they were spiteful of good things, which is the nature of how they would act, anyway. I am proud they have this message in the movie, which others probably caught, tho it seems "secret.." I think naturally it was taken in a weird way. I would understand if anyone found it perplexing and even annoying.
I'll justify my rating saying that it really seemed confusing and hopeless. However, Mal, Malificent's daughter, is also what made me give it higher than a 1. The art was not together at all, it seemed. It did seem hectic, like Dark Shadows starring Johnny Depp and directed by the animator and director Tim Burton. My only guess is that the cast wasn't together right like family, like they didn't know why they were there. In a way, I don't know why they were there cuz I've applied to agencies and never got called back. None of what I say is intended to be a negative connotation. I'm just saying it was an arousing, constantly thought-probing experience that makes me feel charged with perplexion. I would however think and agree that it would make others wonder why they are into watching it, a strange experience.
I did learn a lot from how nice the actors were and what they were able to put into it. Everyone seemed dodgy darting around, in ways.
So, in between, a lot of good feelings came about. They were happy but not very much about it being Disney characters. I wish films these days would just bring out the glamour etc. of actors more rather than just pretend the world is like they are now often, modest. In other words, I think we're all ready to see the people who are lucky in ways like having white blonde hair to be seen more in Hollywood. It would make it exciting and hopeful. Nothing wrong with dark hair. Even colored people want more for the fairer people. I know from experience of feeling some of that rejection in that regard.
While I say the artistic action in strange ways brought it down by being, like, contemporary, it was the reason I didn't give it a 1. It was also very Burtonesque. It's more like Burlesque and not Baroque like Bach nor classical like Beethoven. It seems like the type of art of Polluck who splashes paint over the art surface numerous times and calls it probably the real art. Perhaps, he's a traditional artist trying to be like everyone else. I would just expect a Disney movie like this be more traditional not only in art but the singing breaks, too! I accompanied a play once with music, and it was a good play if you knew it.. but they said the music breaks is what kept them going.
I'll say in case, there is no offense to anyone. Operand conditioning is not always that bad of a thing, for instance, and wasn't intended to be suggestive for any reason. If you know what you know, the response can sometimes be obvious, but I won't get into relaying all the secrets in this, while not fighting about, seems to need to be addressed and checked, perhaps by the people involving themselves in them. It is important and in need of addressing. People probably do exchange mutual noticings of things in this that seem to clash, in any general case. I was about to add something else but forgot. Like I said, I don't actually mean to fight, but I feel pressed for things. It seems they just want us to listen to take it in stride and even in some cases set down our heavy luggage, so-to-speak, and remember what we learned in this. 1 reason I know they might have had these things is to settle issues and entertain. 2 they might really think they are in a position to teach others a lesson. I did catch that people caught on and agreed the chaos was uncalled for and the result of silliness or ignorance.
There's more to be said on this film, including artistically. If you ask me if I hope they make more like this, I'll have to say in some ways yes but of course others no. This movie is different, and it's okay if some movies are like this in general in certain ways.
