About me: 26, Germany - Munich/Stuttgart (have lived in Tokyo, Osaka and London). History/English major, speak German, English, Japanese, some French. Trying to learn Korean (and failing miserably). My brain basically works like this: either I'm completely uninterested, or I'm utterly obsessed. This is a multi-fandom-blog, there is lots of Sherlock, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Benedict Cumberbatch, crack, lots of shows, Misha Collins, more crack, Japanese things and more Benedict Cumberbatch. And Kittens. I suck at tagging, so apologies in advance.
Jack is hardcore as fuck
scare me like one of your french girls
For money money, the most interesting thing about this confrontation is how completely it inverts the final scenes of a typical Disney film. In most cases, the hero is physically and/or supernaturally outmatched, and triumphs through determination and ingenuity; here, the villain spends the the whole fight running scared, while the protagonist casually no-sells everything that’s thrown at him. And there’s no ironic Disney Death keeping the protagonist’s hands clean, either. Jack just straight-up murders Oogie with malice aforethought while Oogie is running away - and by having Santa Claus himself strike the final blow, the film legitimises Jack’s killing of Oogie as the morally correct course of action.
You don’t fuck around with the motherfucking pumpkin king
The difference between learning a modern language and an ancient language is that in first year French you learn “Where is the bathroom?” and “How do I get to the train station?” and in first year Attic Greek or Latin you learn “I have judged you worthy of death” and “The tyrant had everyone in the city killed.”
