what’s eating gilbert grape (1993)
In honor of the GGs tonight (which I can’t be too pissed at because YES JENNIFER LAWRENCE), I give you the very first time Leo was robbed of his award
Angela & Shawn are on the sofa when Topanga comes in and tells them that they’re sitting on Eric. This scene was never completed because the actors kept laughing. Rider Strong (Shawn) once said that the BMW writers tried not to write many dialogues between Shawn & Eric (Will Friedle) because they kept making each other laugh. (x)
remember when Raven did this show
remember when Raven also had an episode regarding racism
remember when Disney was good
not ’90s. close enough. because we need more of this on television— especially on television aimed at young people. Nothing on tv talks to kids about stuff like this anymore and it’s such a shame. I don’t understand what happened
Except now they tell me, “1998.” And I’m like, “And you’re potty trained? That’s wonderful.”
No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.
This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.
Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and livess happily ever after because of it.
We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.
this about sums up my night.
Happy New Year!
“That’s my best friend, Vada Sultenfuss. Most of the girls don’t really appreciate her and a lot of the guys are a little afraid of her. But she’s more fun to be around than anyone I know. This summer though, things are changing for everyone. Her father just found someone and her grandmother just lost her marbles. No wonder Vada’s acting so funny. They say sometimes when you get older, friends stop being friends. But not Vada and me. She’ll always be my girl.”

excuse me while I sob in a corner for the rest of my life.
