I love Anastasia but they get so much shit wrong and I had to talk about it.
As a history major currently studying Soviet Russia I would like to formally bless this post
History majors have a hard time just sitting and enjoying period pieces….especially with others
"Wait a second…that’s not right…"
^ You understand me friend
I was about to be like “jeez it’s just a cartoon” but nearly died laughing at this post multiple time. read this post. it’s good post
"Non. I do not give une fuck"
jesus christ, its a kids movie! of course its not gonna be— this is a thing of beauty
We watched this in AP euro and all we did was make jokes
HOPEFULLY NOT WITH HIS BAT
Bartok was the best part of the movie.
it is a dreadful animated film, corny and saccharine and generally just quite bad…
So, as a history person, I love this. However, I gotta say, I loved this movie and many other historically inaccurate films. They would pique my interest in a historical topic/figure. Then, I’d go off in search of more information about that topic. Thank you, historically inaccurate movies, for making me become a good historian.
Thank u the fucking Leningrad bit has been eating me alive since I was a kid.
I think the animation is great tho. The story is great. And yes 10/10 totally would smang Dimitri.
Haha. I knew this stuff was historically bullshit, and I really didn’t care I still loved this movie as a kid. I had a plushie Pooka. THis was still too funny to not reblog.
The movie doesn’t even touch on how terrifying Rasputin’s control over the family, particularly her mother was. It also doesn’t even mention how freaking hard he was to kill. They poisoned him, shot him, beat him, threw him in a river, and THEN he dyed of hypothermia.
They were taken down to a cellar in their own home, their entire family and shot several times. Because their dresses had gems on them some of the bullets were said to have deflected off (highly doubtful though) but in the end they all died together, murdered.
I studied the hell out of Anastasia, the actual princess when I was in jr high I have books and I still loved the movie to death and still do. I even have the art book and it’s gorgeous. Enjoy the movie but know that basically none of it is right.
Ben is drunk.
Emboldened by alcohol, Ben become lewd and he regret that later on.
@w@ It’s okay, Ben. When you’re drunk it usually lets you show your true feelings~
