Greeting, and welcome to Earthling cinema.
I’m your host. Garyx Wormuloi.
This week’s artifact is Zootopia
Yet another stage in hollywood’s quest
to make me sexually attracted to rabbits.
The firm takes place on earth in the 24th century
after the humans had wiped themselves out and animals raided their wardrobes.
Our protagonist is the exhaustingly enthusiastic
Judy Hopps, who leaves behind her white trash family
in order to become a cop,
the most venerated of all professions.
Even though Judy graduates Phi Beta Carotene,
the chief puts her on parking duty because
she’s too small to succeed.
Thankfully, the assistant mayor is also a lil’ pipsqueak,
and out of solidarity she helps Judy worn her way onto a missing otter case.
Then, in Judy’s first act as a protector of truth and justice,
she blackmails a hard-working entrepreneur into becoming her unpaid intern.
Judy and Nick the intern discover that the missing otter went all savage on his limo driver
which is weird because limos are pretty much the chillest way to get to prom.
The driver blames it on “night howlers”,
没一会儿 他也同失踪的水獭一样凶残起来 紧追尼克和朱迪
and then moments later he too goes Ballistic:Ecks vs. Several on their asses,
Judy and Nick escape in the Judy and Nick of time,then
use traffic cameras to follow some pretty shaggy-looking horses,
on account of the old wolves tale that horses howl at the moon.
Bet you a nickel one of them is gonna howl
And there it is.
Lo and behold, they find the otter and a bunch of other missing predators,
still straight acting the fool.
But also the lion mayor is there,
So they have him arrested for plot purpose
and replaced with the sheep lady from before.
All the Zootopioids start panicking about predators being psycho killers,
qu’est-ce que c’est. Judy hop hop hop hops back home for her annual botany lesson,
where she learns that “night howlers” aren’t horses at all,
but rather a type of flower that makes you zonked in your bonker.
“Terry ate one whole when we were kids and went completely nuts.”
So she goes back to Z-town and heads over to the secret bad guy laboratory
where some sheeple are making night howlerade.
I call them sheeple because they are literally sheep that act like people,
but also because they are followers.
And who are they following? Another sheep, of course: the new mayor.
She shoots Nick with the serum dealio and he goes into beast mode.
But don’t lynch him just yet, ‘cuz he was playing make-pretend,
and really he was shot by a tiny blue watermelon.
They do the not-a-cop-out-at-all movie trick of recording the bad guy’s admission of guilt,
Judy和Nick成了搭档 性伴侣？ 那就由观众自己去判断了
and Judy and Nick become partners. Sex partners? That’s for the viewer to decide.
And draw. And send to me.
At the heart of Zootopia lies the question of nature vs. nurture:
Is identity biologically determined,
or can we elevate ourselves by incorporating nurture somehow?
At the beginning of the film, we are led to believe the veneer of civilization
is only thing keeping predators from going apeshit,
batshit, tigershit, et cetera.
In public, Nick is on his best behavior,
bucking the negative stereotypes commonly associated with foxes.
But in private, his sly nature rears its adorable head.
“It’ s called hustle,sweet heart.”
And when predators begin reverting to their primitive ways,
the biological determinists are all
“I told you so”.
But,it may has something to do with biology.
But when it turns out the whole thing was just because of some obscure poison,
the animals realize biology is not to blame.
I mean, the biology of the plants is to blame,
but that’s not really what we’re talking about right now.
The film illustrates the fallacy of relying on prejudice
by inverting all its previously established stereotypes:
Judy’s fox bully from childhood is now a pacifist pastry chef.
闪电 来自慢速界的树懒 却是个疯狂的飙车手
Flash, the slow sloth from all the trailers, is a speed demon drag racer.
Dumb bunny solves the case and sly fox gets an honest job.
The meek “lamb” assistant mayor is actually
the ruthless mastermind behind the entire conflict,
and probably doesn’t even need those glasses.
Zootopia mirrors the social and political landscape of 20th century America,
when efforts began in earnest to balance some of society’s glaring inequalities,
The Mammal Inclusion Initiative is similar to various Earthling diversity
and affirmative action programs designed to
level the playing field for underserved minorities,
and in the case of women, majorities.
The parallels are accentuated by the use of language associated with the PC movement.
“Sir, I’m not just some token bunny.”
Not to be confused with the Mac movement,
which was a sleeker but more expensive movement.
And just like in 20th century America
the citizens of Zootopia are able to
fix all their social ills just by trying hard and being optimistic.
“I implore you, try.”
Easy peasy, lemon sneezy.
God bless you.
Peace and tranquility for the entire animal kingdom.
Not counting reptiles and amphibians and fish and birds and insects.
They’re all dead I guess.
Boy, for a movie about inclusion
they sure do go out of their way to ignore all the freaks and uggos.
