Crop And Save
I first saw this movie as a little kid, but I still enjoy it now that i'm 15. I consider this to be one of the first GOOD movies to come out of that greedy capitalist hellhole called Disney in years. Some of the arguments against it have been ridiculous.
"It's racist!" Oh come on people, it's supposed to be and adventure/war movie, not a remake of Ghandi! The Huns are bad, the Chinese are good because that's how it was in the ancient legend. A movie like this is not supposed to put political correctness before entertainment.
"It's discriminating against men!" Lighten up, please. I'm a guy and I wasn't offended by this. It's from Mulan's perspective, and I think it's safe to say she was somewhat prejudiced. Besides, Shang was cool. There was nothing wrong with him.
"It's too violent!" I hate to break it to you, but war happens. Yes, there are fields of bodies. Yes, the bad guys kill people. Yes, it might scare little kids. But seriously, the evening news is way more violent. These things happen, and if your kids never know about it then they're going to be pretty freaked out when they first encounter the real world.
In short, Mulan is a great movie for anybody who doesn't want they're kids to live in a bubble. It's got action, romance, friendship, the whole works, and would have been great even if it wasn't animated.
Brat Camp (2005)
I only watched a couple episodes of this show, because I just couldn't take it anymore. They find kids who have serious problems, like drug addictions and abuse-induced trauma and treat them like criminals, tricking them out into the desert for up to 90 days where they force them to carry heavy packs, and attempt to brainwash them into "good" kids. It's appalling, and what really makes me angry is how much people seem to like it. That people consider legalized child abuse to be entertaining says a lot about this country. These kid's parents were negligent, and yet it's the kids themselves who's clothes are locked up at night to prevent escape. A truly horrible show, I really hope it's cancelled and the filmmakers are sued.
