Help! This look is too hot for acting a peerless beauty, right?
After the failure of Mulan, Disney brought us a visual crit with the beloved magical revision "The Little Mermaid".
The difference from the former is that when Hua Mulan was cast, most Chinese and foreign audiences had no objection, and praised Liu Yifei's appearance and appearance. The reason for the big overturn was Liu Yifei's terrible acting skills and crooked story and style. To blame.
As for the mermaid, the casting was overturned from the very beginning.
Look at the latest Reuters of "The Little Mermaid", it's more terrible than the beginning ↓
I haven't seen the elegance of the daughter of the sea, and the mermaid hiding in the broken car in the picture is a bit of a medieval smuggling.
Wearing a mask can also tell that the heroine Kong Wu is powerful, like a Valkyrie who accidentally broke into the African world.
Take off the mask, even more absolutely.
Isn't this really a sequel to "Crazy Primitive"?
You put the words "most mermaid" on her face and I can hardly convince myself that this is the beautiful little mermaid in the fairy tale world.
I don't know exactly which part of the role was played, but I was shocked.
I don't know if some friends think that this Reuters picture may be too vague, a bit distorted and demeaning the new generation of mermaid actors.
Here I will show you other clear versions in advance.
Except for the difference in clarity, the others are really not bad.
The heroine of The Little Mermaid is played by Harry Berry, a young actress born in 2000, a child star + singer, she sings very well and is a black female singer with good stage charm.

When a singer is good enough, acting is not impossible, but acting the Little Mermaid is a little worse.
The movie "The Little Mermaid" is based on Andersen's fairy tale "The Daughter of the Sea". The heroine is Ariel, the youngest mermaid princess in the sea.
In Andersen’s original work, Ariel’s appearance is not written much but the positioning is very clear. Ariel is a beautiful mermaid princess with blue eyes, long golden hair and fair skin (Andersen was originally a mermaid princess created from a white perspective. When he wrote, he did not bring the mission of eliminating racial discrimination, and did not let the African mermaid princess come to this sea to meet. It is really outrageous to change the mermaid princess to black fish. I hope no one will deny me. If it does, then OK must be mine wrong).
Later, in order to eliminate the red-haired discrimination in Europe and the United States, Disney asked the mermaid princess in the fairy tale to replace her blonde hair with red hair, which is the most familiar mermaid cartoon style.
OK, it's not outrageous.
But the live-action version directly changed the princess's race, skin color, eyes, and everything. It also chose an actor who was not outstanding even in the black community to play the most beautiful fish in the sea. .
Isn't it the most beautiful fish with wide eye distance?
Take a look at this makeup photo↓
Look at her intensive mermaid photos taken by herself↓
It feels like a fish, but it really has nothing to do with a mermaid.
It's OK to play an extra actor in the sea, but the most outstanding one, no.
There is no malice towards Harry Berry, nor does it mean that she is not qualified to debut or be an actor if she is not beautiful enough.
It's okay to have the qualifications and strength, and the appearance I think is actually a black girl who is not beautiful but also very healthy and sunny.
But at least you have to choose a role that matches your appearance and temperament.
Look at the selection of the mermaid princess and the prince fold. Isn’t it okay for you two to play an ordinary white man and a black woman who are working hard to survive in the first line of New York, although poor but optimistic and working hard to live in the basement and love to the end?
The beautiful mermaid princess and the handsome mermaid princess who are so beautiful that people forget to breathe are willing to sacrifice their voices and walk on the tip of a knife, and even give up their lives and turn into bubbles. .
Sorry, really can't be substituted (currently because the princess is too unsightly, it has succeeded in attracting firepower for the prince in public opinion).
Filming fairy tales was originally intended for artificial dreams.
You choose two actors who look so realistic, and even the setting of the character prototype is completely subverted. As an audience, it is hell if you can see it if you are happy.
Take a step back and say, even if you want to subvert, you have to find a strong appearance that will make the audience feel that your subversion is very convincing.
If you choose Harry Berry when you were young, maybe the audience will immediately think that the black mermaid is more eye-catching, maybe not?
After being severely hit by various cast members, I have something to say. Today, at the risk of being accused of being criticized as aesthetic narrow racial discrimination, I have to talk about my true feelings.
Regardless of whether the work is a commodity or art, the most important thing is to serve the public. You can't always be overbearing to distort the audience's aesthetics and ask the audience to accept your food according to the head.
In recent years, global works have been going backwards seriously, and it is too difficult to watch a work that is pleasing to the eye and has a smooth plot.
I won’t talk about Asian and domestic issues for the time being, let’s talk about foreign issues first.
At present, in Europe and the United States, correcting and equal rights on racial issues have developed to the point of overcorrection. Everything must be forcibly correct and everything must be forcibly fair and equal.
The specific manifestation is that regardless of whether the role is not suitable for blacks at all, there must be a black protagonist in the play anyway, otherwise it is racial discrimination.
In addition to the most outrageous black fish in the sea, the most outrageous operation in the world is for black actress Judy Turner-Smith to play Henry VIII's second queen Anne Boleyn.
This is a portrait of Anne Boleyn, a typical white aristocrat. ↓
Acted like this by black actress Judy Turner-Smith↓
It feels ridiculous.
The way that blacks are committed to improving their status is actually to distort the real historical figures and to change the color of the race.
The media also applauded this.
Talking about how advanced it is to let blacks act as whites.
"Allowing people of color to play this role can more substantially show the prejudice of the British politics towards family and religion at that time."
Allowing black actors to play Anne Boleyn can "more perfectly highlight the fate of Anne Bolindo", and it can also reflect the "outsider sense" of Anne Boleyn as a Protestant among Catholics, and more vividly embodies it. "Identity Awareness".
This argument always makes me feel that something is wrong.
Let’s change the operation. If we let the white people play Martin Luther King and Mandela, saying that this approach can show to a greater extent the white people’s introspection and confession of the crimes they have committed, and more clearly reflect the "identity consciousness", I don’t know Will the black community be moved to support this, and praise the whites?
When literary works blindly serve XX and reject any criticism and can only praise, art loses its own charm.
Anti-discrimination is right, and it is also right to reject facial anxiety.
It's just that your circle has often abused these positive ideas that were originally progressive.
What kind of sin did our audience commit? Those who spend money and time will be tortured by this group of forcibly messing up capitals, and they don't even get paid to watch a normal play.
Just complain a few words, don't let it.
When we argued that an actor's appearance, temperament and body did not fit a certain role, we were strictly deducted by a "discrimination hat" without criticism.
Isn't it another form of discrimination and suppression to deprive the audience of their normal aesthetic and free commentary rights?
