Audrey says “fuck your gender roles”
This movie is super underrated.
Audrey is so underrated. How can you not love her?
I have a love-hate relationship with this movie.
On one hand it’s got awesome PoC characters who defy racial and gender stereotypes. It also discusses colonialism and how people tend to destroy indigenous cultures to obtain land and resources (which is why the crew ultimately decided a to pretend they never found Atlantis because they don’t want anyone else to try and destroy the culture).
But on the other hand, the whole plot is that Atlantis needs a white, cishet man to save it from extinction and for some reason he understand their culture and language better than they do.
hEY FUCK YOU OKAY
MILO WAS THE ANTITHESIS OF WHITE SAVIOR
HE WAS A NERDY USELESS LITTLE SHIT WHO WAS COWARDLY UNTIL OTHERS FORCED HIM TO ACT
HIS ONLY STRENGTHS WERE HIS MIND AND HIS ETHICS
HE WAS THE PERFECT DUDE FOR THE JOB AND THE REASON HE KNEW BETTER WAS BECAUSE HE RIGOROUSLY STUDIED TEXTS THAT HAD BEEN LOST OR DESTROYED IN ATLANTIS BECAUSE KIDA’S FATHER INTENTIONALLY LET HIS KINGDOM LAPSE INTO DECAY AND OBSCURITY
DO NOT PULL THAT WHITE SAVIOUR BULLSHIT BECAUSE MILO WAS A DAMN GOOD DUDE
PEOPLE ARE JUST MAD ABOUT THIS BECAUSE MILO WAS A WHITE CISHET DUDE BUT HE WAS NOT A WHITE MALE SAVIOR
ATLANTIS WAS LITERALLY DYING BECAUSE THE KING HAD PURPOSEFULLY HIDDEN THEIR ENERGY SOURCE AND SO THEY WERE LOSING THEIR OWN CULTURE TO TIME BECAUSE THEY WERE TRAPPED UNDERGROUND
THE ONLY REASON MILO KNEW MORE ABOUT THEIR OWN CULTURE WAS BECAUSE HE HAD ACCESS TO THE SHEPHERD’S JOURNAL AND THE EDUCATION TO TRANSLATE AND UNDERSTAND IT AND THROUGH THAT DID HE COME TO SAVE ATLANTIS
AND IN THE END THE CREW KEPT THE WHOLE THING A SECRET TO STOP SAID WHITE SAVIOR BULLSHIT FROM ACTUALLY HAPPENING BECAUSE IT ALMOST HAD WITH ROURKE, WHO WAS PLAYING THAT ANGLE TO DO WHAT AGAIN? OH YEAH, MAKE MONEY OFF THE NATIVES. WHO SOUNDS LIKE THE BAD GUY HERE??
DO NOT CALL MILO JAMES THATCH A WHITE SAVIOR I WILL FIGHT YOU ON THIS
