2021.10.26 15:34 PopRaven Raya and the Last Dragon undermines its own theme. Let's fix that.
The biggest criticism of Raya and the Last Dragon is that it poorly executed of its theme of learning to trust people.
First, it undermines its own theme repeatedly by showing multiple instances where Sisu naively trusts people and things turn out for the worse.
Second, it's really problematic when Raya blindly trusting Namaari at the end of the movie is shown as a good thing. Namaari did nothing to earn that trust - kids should be learning that trust is a two way street. Also Sisu blindly trusting people throughout the movie is shown as a bad thing, but somehow when Raya does it its a good thing?
In classic narrative structure, the protagonist has a flaw, things go bad because of that flaw, at their lowest point the protagonist learns their lesson, and ultimately succeeds due to learning said lesson.
A lot of problems in Raya and the Last Dragon are fixed if instead of there being multiple instances where Sisu trusting people causes problems, we instead have multiple instances where Raya distrusting people causes problems. Raya needs a journey of growth where she learns to trust again, and Sisu should be the catalyst for that change.
For example, in Spine (the desert), maybe Namaari genuinely apologizes to Raya and wants to work together, Raya rejects her, not wanting to be betrayed again, they fight, Raya injures one of Namaari's guards/friends, causing Namaari to resent Raya. Raya's distrust caused unnecessary antagonism.
Later in Spine, Raya distrusts Boun (the boat captain / porridge restauranteur), preferring to escape by land, but Sisu does trust him, and by taking the boat, they avoid a falling into a Fang trap on land, showing the value of Sisu's trusting approach.
In Talon (the market by the water), someone tries to warn Raya about the corrupt chief, she doesn't trust their warning, and lo and behold, the chief is corrupt, leading to Raya and Sisu being put at avoidable risk.
In Spine (the snowy village), Tong tells Raya of a secret escape route, Raya doesn't trust him, leading to an unnecessary confrontation with Namaari, and Namaari being alerted about Sisu.
Speaking of Namaari, if Raya is to ultimately trust her in the end, we need to make her more sympathetic, so she can be deserving of that trust. I remember a line where either her or her mom said "Fang is running out of room for its citizens"... yet Fang is shown to be a spacious, prosperous island with plenty of space. Imagine instead a Fang that is cramped, packed to the brim with people, really selling the point that they have no choice but to expand, and Namaari and her mom are trying to do best by Fang.
Suppose at the beginning when Namaari initially betrays Raya (when they were kids), Namaari is reluctant to do so, seeming to genuinely want friendship, but is ultimately bound by her obligation to Fang.
Anyway, back to present day - just like in the original, Sisu convinces Raya to attempt to ally with Namaari, Namaari is genuinely willing to help, and they meet by that cliff edge near Fang. Namaari spots one of her mother's Fang spies hiding in the trees behind Raya, raises her crossbow, Raya misinterprets this as an act of aggression and attacks Namaari, causing the crossbow to miss and instead kill Sisu. Crucially, it is Raya's lack of trust that directly caused this problem.
The water disappears, the good guys attempt to protect Fang citizens from the Druun, Raya and Namaari fight and again, we really try to sell how Namaari has been trying to do the right thing all along, Raya finally realizes that, realizes that her lack of trust caused all these problems, and learns from her mistake. Fang is overrun by Druun, the characters are cornered into that trust moment, when the good guys don't trust Namaari, Raya takes the first step. the difference is this time when Raya chooses to Namaari, the moment is earned: Raya has learned a lesson, and Namaari has shown she is deserving of the trust.
tldr; the story works much better if we retool the movie to show that Raya distrusting people causes problems, and that instead, (earned) trust is a good thing

2021.10.26 15:34 meekahfreekah What's up with the thrift store prices these days
Which thrift stores don't charge a lot of money for women's clothing? I'm shocked what local places are charging. I tried to buy a hat at secret seconds today, it was 40.00! These are not prices low income moms can afford. A nice jacket 65.00!??? Maybe thrift stores here in Missoula make wealthy peeps feel good about themselves instead of actually helping poor families
