let’s play roses and thorns:
my rose goes to aragorn. a hot knight/king/swashbuckler with a 6 foot sword and a gentle demeanor that sets my expectations for men way too high. i got very excited when he pulled up to the party with those pirate ships.
and my thorn goes to gollum, a manipulating, greedy piece of SHIT. how dare he hurt sam to the point where he cries ! side note, sam deserves the world. if i had two roses, i’d give one to sam too.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
ok so....i think the main mistake that they made with this film was making vivian the protagonist and not lucy. in addition, this film did a lot of talk about intersectionality but it fell short. for instance, how mitchell (the football player) treated lucy was not just because of misogyny - it was racism. like, yes, fuck the patriarchy, but also fuck racism, transphobia, and ableism - which were other issues that characters faced that were not completely addressed.
