The “get-out-of-jail-free card” that Goose gives the triker was an on-set joke. Because of the limited budget, the biker gang was an actual biker gang (the Vigilantes), and they had to ride to the set each day in-costume; often with their prop weapons displayed. Since the production company expected them to be pulled over by the local police, each was given a letter explaining the film’s peculiar requirements, and asking for law-enforcement’s understanding & cooperation.

Lilo and Stitch presenting an accurate representation of Hawaiians perspective on luaus held by tourists.
#what’s sad about this is that this is actually what Hawaiians had to do when the western culture took over #a luau was a sacred practice #until the westerners took the concept and had the audacity to change it into a time to stuff your face with food and put on grass skirts and coconut bras and dance the hula #and when they had these events, they didn’t even let actual Hawaiian people in #so to make money to take care of themselves, the Hawaiians were hired to work in these disgraceful events to clean up after the tourists like slaves only to make less than a buck #so good job disney for doing your fucking research and educating these people #sadly, this still goes on even until today and it makes me sick
I forgot this isn’t common knowledge to other people
Real talk whoever the creative team on this movie was should stage a coup of Disney and just make more real shit like L&S
A list of diverse television shows that are premiering or returning to TV for the 2014-2015 season.
This year’s Emmys weren’t the most diverse, which is really unfortunate. But Fall 2014 is right around the corner and here at LEE & LOW, we made a list of 16 shows we’re looking forward to!
Grey’s Anatomy, Shonda Rhimes’s medical drama with one of the most diverse casts on network TV, returns for its eleventh season.
Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu as a modern day Sherlock Holmes and Joan Watson, returns. We just love this show.
Sleepy Hollow normalizes POC characters as leads in a fantasy-world setting, in which their POC-ness isn’t an “issue” but definitely a part of who they are as characters. It tackles historical issues like slavery head-on (for example, Ichabod’s reaction to Abbie being a cop), and it centers Abbie’s experience as the hero of this tale.
Ultimately, it’s epic and funny and fascinating—it tells a good story.
Scandal, Shonda Rhimes’s political thriller, returns with Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, queen of the Perfect Pantsuit. Whether you love or hate this show, one thing’s for sure: it’s impossible to stop watching.
The Mindy Project, Mindy Kaling’s rom-com, is back for a third season, featuring a strong, smart Indian American woman front and center as its main character.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Andre Braugher earned an Emmy nomination for his role in this sitcom set in a Brooklyn Police Department, which has been praised by many for its truly diverse cast and nuanced representation.
Fresh off the Boat is the first sitcom starring Asian Americans since Margaret Cho’s All American Girl in 1994. There are 18.9 million Asian Americans in the US. It’s time to see some positive representation!
The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore will replace Comedy Central’s Colbert Report. Larry Wilmore, also known as the “Senior Black Correspondent” on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, will be one of the first black comedians to anchor his own show in the coveted 11:30 pm spot.
Black-ish, starring Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson, follows a middle-class African American family in a mostly-white neighborhood.
Selfie looks fun and funny, a fresh take on My Fair Lady, with a nicely diverse cast across the board.
Cristela, “in her sixth year at law school, is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. However, she’s a lot more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate.”
How to Get Away with Murder stars two-time Oscar nominee, Viola Davis, as “the brilliant, charismatic and seductive Professor Annalise Keating, who gets entangled with four law students from her class “How to Get Away with Murder.””
Fixed it! Rinko Kikuchi as Motoko Kusanagi in Ghost in the Shell. And it should stay that way.
If you’re going to make live-action adaptations of Japanese anime movies, mangas and tv shows, cast Japanese actors and actresses. Refusing to do so is a direct slap on the face. Japanese anime characters are not white or racially ambiguous, they’re Japanese. Unless the Manga artist states the character is of a different race, do not assume the character is white.
And I’m predicting this Ghost in the Shell live-action film will be the next Dragonball Evolution or The Last Airbender, I hope it flops.
I’m tired of Americans ruining legendary and groundbreaking Japanese anime movies, mangas and tv shows.
"A lot of people were saying ‘Oh, that’s going to be a female-oriented movie, for girls’ but I went in there as a guy coming out of it like I’m watching the second one"
It’s sad when young kids are smarter than the older men and women who run companies that in turn influence the children’s ideas and opinions. :(
