Absolutely. I don't know if our lovely ~nymphets~ even know about that original script, I'm pretty sure they're just choosing to interpret the movie as it suits them Just saying that there are a few "vibes" they could have picked up if they've seen the international version; y'know, those same vibes that make EVERYONE ELSE uncomfortable as fuck?
I hate to be "that person", but they were supposed to fuck originally. Even ignoring that scene in the international version where she tries to "seduce" him and he refuses (still weird nonetheless; you can find it on YouTube), that scene in the script ended with this: But Jean Reno (and, I think, Natalie Portman's parents) weren't crazy about that, and they got it changed (and Jean deliberately changed the vibe of their interactions, like you mentioned). Thank FUCK. It grosses me out just reading it.
It's such a stereotype that people should "travel to find themselves", but,..... it works?? Travelling takes you out of your comfort zone and teaches you things about other people and yourself. I cannot BELIEVE that Kenna didn't change for the better, at all, by her solo 1-month trip to Japan. Judging by what she was doing and what she was posting at the time, I think that she bizzarely attempted to use her trip as an ego boost, somehow? Her sucking up to j-vloggers because she thought they'd jump on her command, her fake stories about random people complimenting her, the fact that she basically did everything she already does in Cali (anime, Disneyland, Starbucks, western food) just in ~*Tokyo*~ OMG!! Cherry blossoms!! She's so thick headed, it hurts to watch
The only thing I'm getting from it is a brainwashing theme (maybe???) But it still doesn't match with the "last girl on earth" theme. Plus, there's someone clearly filming her (the camera is shaking), so that breaks the last girl illusion as well. Kek all around
I was at the hairdresser's today, browsing the forum to pass the time while my dye was developing. I was too afraid to click on this thread because of what may pop up, that people might see while passing behind me. That should tell you enough about whether Natasha's "work" is ~art~ or not.
You see, Kenna, when people supposedly apologize, other people expect some change to take place afterwards. Because you see, there's no point in apologizing when it's just empty words just to get people off your back. Haven't you learned that by now? Yes, you (just gonna address you directly because it's common knowledge that you lurk) stopped stealing art, and outed yourself as a poser artist in the process (had you been an artist like you claimed, you'd still be pumping out art, but nope) But your apology wasn't just about the plagiarism, it was about your overall defensive and frankly bitchy behaviour, which hasn't changed one. fucking. bit. THAT'S why people are still criticizing you, that's why we're on our FOURTH thread of your shenanigans. I'd be ashamed of myself if I were you.
There's a scene in Bojack Horseman when the titular character asks a friend, "Do you think I'm a good person, deep down?" and she replies "That's the thing, I don't think I believe in deep down, I kind of think all you are is just the things that you do" and I 100% agree. So Kenna, her friends, her family and her fans can ramble on and on and on about what a great person "actually, in reality" she is, but all I see is her ~salty sarcastic~ nasty online behaviour, and that's what she CHOOSES to show. I don't care whether she has a ~hidden heart of gold~ or not, she doesn't SHOW it so it might as well not even exist (if it exists at all, which I doubt) I'm not going to congratulate Kenna on what she MIGHT be like "actually", but I am going to rag on her about what she does show online, when it's as nasty as it is now. Actions speak louder than words.
Yes, because you can't really pick and choose the elements you want from this (or anything problematic, really; like those people that knowingly get swastika tattoos "because it ACTUALLY means something positive in Hinduism!!!!" Why THAT symbol tho? There's so many positive symbols in the world??) The way that this ~nymphet aesthetic~ is perceived is done for by now, why would you choose to be associated with it in particular? Like another user says, the nymphet fashion is basically 50s style, without the pedophilia of sexualising children's imagery.
