Megamind - 'Bad Guy' vs ‘Nice Guy’
Seriously, if you haven’t see this movie, you really, really should. There are so many great things about Megamind: anti-bullying, great female character, funny jokes, touching scenes, very detailed animation, super awesome music… The gif set above is probably my favourite thing, however: Nice Guy is the bad guy.
Yeah I’ve kinda wanted to talk about this a lot.
Megamind is the villain, the “bad guy”. She makes it clear that she doesn’t want him. He respects it and walks off. It comes up a few more times but it’s more of an “are you sure?” or “thats how it is” than any sort of demand.
Hal is the new “hero”. His crush on Roxanne turns into an immediate “You love me now because I’m a superhero!” and when she makes it clear that she doesn’t want him, his reaction is to tantrum, then destroy the city, inevitably killing people, and attempting to kill both Roxanne and Megamind.
Hal’s legitimately scary because women have to deal with behavior like his on a constant basis. Don’t be a Hal. Be a Megamind. RESPECT THE “NO”.
Unrelated, but my other favorite thing, besides the whole “villain is a Nice Guy”, is that Minion cross-dresses and Megamind is completely serious when he says “you look fantastic”. Megamind is totally cool about his best friend cross-dressing and encourages it. That’s very important.
Roxanne also is the only character that moves the story along. All the other characters are having an existential crisis. Roxanne throws things and steps up first and is just a fucking queen.
Also I am like 200% convinced Megamind is bi. BUT THATS ME NOT OFFICIAL CANON although Dreamworks has like abandoned Megamind entirely so fandom says he’s bi THE END fandom-canon is now canon fight me on this
Sometimes I think this movie came out a few years too early. Tumblr would have loved the shit out of this. This movie fucks with stereotyped gender roles and Nice Guy thinking and just augh Dreamworks why did you let go of this why why why that was the worst decision ever why
This this this THIS THIS THIS
This is fine and dandy until
“Hal’s legitimately scary because women have to deal with behavior like his on a constant basis. Don’t be a Hal. Be a Megamind. RESPECT THE “NO”.”
Uh no, PEOPLE have to deal with behavior like this on a constant basis. I’ve dealt with it before from women. And trust me, it’s just as legitimately scary because we haven’t been taught what to do.
Unlike women, who are at least given some decent ideas in regards to what they should do in these situations, as a guy, I was never told anything about how to handle unwanted advances. Ever. Like, not even once.
1940’s AU - KristAnna
Kristoff is part of a barber shop quartet and Anna is the daughter of a wealthy business man who owns most of the buildings in town.
Anna’s fiancee, Hans, is away on business for a while and during that time she decides to bring her sister out shopping to keep herself distracted. An unexpected stranger catches her eye as they walk down the street, a rather handsome a capella singer amongst the others in the quartet. He catches her staring and begins to sing to her.
It would go on like this for days after, until one day she walked up to him, playfully plucked the hat from his head and ran over behind the wall of the next building.
Teasing him, she refused to give it back.
"M’aam, if you don’t hand that over I’m afraid I’m gonna have to ask you out on a date. Now, I don’t think you’d want that."
She smiles and places the hat on her head, "where we goin’?"
Though they both understand that she’s already engaged, they fall in love. A month later Hans returns, just as the military begins to hastily recruit every able bodied young man to help in the war. He catches word of Anna’s little afair, and makes sure a service letter finds its way to Kristoff’s doorstep, telling him he is being recruited to fight.

Day Six: favorite thing about the film → everything
It’s impossible to pinpoint what I love most about Brother Bear. The movie is flawless in my eyes and it has always been my favorite Disney movie. The characterization is amazing, the soundtrack is beautiful, the animation is gorgeous, the humor is funny without being overpowering… I could go on for a while, so I’ll stop there.
But one thing that stands out to me about the film is that there is no villain. Kenai, Denahi, and Koda’s mother all play the villain in different parts of the film, yet none of them are actually villains. This has hardly been done before (at least not in Disney history). And what an amazing message that sends. Sometimes we can be quick to decide whether people (or ourselves) are good or bad, without remembering that they can be a bit of both. Just because someone has been a villain at some point in their life, it doesn’t mean they still are, it doesn’t necessarily make them a bad person, and it definitely doesn’t mean they can’t change.
