Chess is Stiles’ game. It’s not the game of a Japanese Fox.
This is one of the reasons The LEGO Movie hit wayyy closer to home than Frozen to me. Instead of a problem that only tackles some few, selected people, you can’t deny that at least at one point you have looked at yourself and felt worthless because everyone around you outshines you even in the things you’re good at.
That’s one of the reasons this movie made me legitimately cry in the theater, that, and due to the fact that the moral that accompanies this is much more empowering than just “letting it go”.

Can we just talk about this movie for one minute? I’d been meaning to go on about the freaking Croods for a really long time
Eep is one of the prime reasons that I respect Dreamworks more than Disney (while i adore both DIsney and Pixar). This is one of the first times I’ve ever seen a female lead that doesn’t fit your stereotypical “princess” expectations. Even Merida, while she was a big step from typical perfect, petite princesses, still had the pretty dresses and the nice figure and even some beautiful—albeit unruly—hair.
But Eep, man—Eep is the female that’s resembled me the closest. A naturally frizzy poof of hair, less than perfect teeth, wide shoulders, even broken, sometimes dirty nails. But the thing about her? She embraces that. She’s proud of who she is, and doesn’t change—even for Guy’s sake.
And granted, she has flaws, other than physical ones. She’s boy-crazy, and pretty impulsive. And another thing that separates this film from Disney? Her traits begin as a major turn-off for Guy. Instead of love at first sight, this boy recoils at her (pardon the pun) crude mannerisms and family, her naivete, and her rambunctiousness. It takes a while for him to warm up to her—And even during this period, she doesn’t change just to please him.
This line in the film was probably meant as some comic blurb to make the audience laugh, but I really think it shows how far Dreamworks has come in overcoming some of these female expectations that Disney’s carved into the world of animation. Yes, Eep’s heavy. But in the world of a cavegirl, this is sensible. This means she’s well-fed, her body is thriving, and things are good.
This movie just makes me really happy to have a character proud of her “flaws”, inside and out.

He doesn’t look like he’d survive a slap across the face, much less the bite of a werewolf.
