There are many things that I love about each DP but there are certain character traits that aren't as admirable in them. Though, it's because of the mix of good and not-so-good traits that a character becomes interesting. Having said so, I still love all DPs, some more and some less. So, here's my counter-part article on "What I love about each DP".
Her bossiness is tad bit annoying to me. I mean, why did she have to lecture around dwarfs and act not-so-her-age. I never could fit this in her adorable, cute and chirpy personality. Her lecturing and bossiness on moral grounds are so out of character and her age.
Her passiveness has always troubled me. She never questioned anyone even after knowing the truth. Acceptance and forgiveness is great, but not attempting to know the truth of your life is another level of passive behavior. I mean trust the fairies for your well being, but at least ask, find out another solution than to simply resign to your ill-fate.
Tough to say, esp not being in her shoes, but not raising voice against abuse is something I don't really advocate, as per today's time. Not having known her rights or options, especially when she didn't have any kind of backing, it would have been tough, but I think I'd still not put up with so much abuse for this long.
My greatest disappointment in her is that she was never shown to deliver an honest, heart-felt apology for putting Atlantica in danger for her personal dreams, even though indirectly. If only there was a beautiful patch-up scene between Triton and Ariel, where they could both realize their own mistakes.
I found it disappointing that she couldn't admit her love for beast on her own. Only when she found herself running out of time, did she realize her love for him. How sad it was that she decided to let go of her chance of making all things right and like always, put her heart at the backseat followed on rational thing to do, to save her father. She could have asked for help from beast, you know. How I wished she could have trusted her heart then, more than her mind.
A tad bit more assuming and rude, than needed. I mean I totally love her fierceness, but she didn't have to make a scene out of every turn of events, which didn't go down well with her. Just a little reserve at some points of the movie would've made me love her to the fullest.
Nothing truly wrong with her, except that her personality has no depth. Everything she does is so emotionless that it makes me go blah every time. When she preaches, or have fun, or is scared for the fate of her love, she just doesn't have depth in her expressions and feelings. Come on girl put some heart into things you do.
It's really tough for me to point anything negative about this girl. She did what she did, as best as she could. But for the heck of it, to be honest, the only thing that made me go, oh but why Mulan, was her agreeing to follow into a role that her parents/society drew for her and never questioning it or attempting to make them understand that this is not who she is underneath. I mean I understand her dilemma there, but still I was from inside asking, why did you have to be so obedient about it.
Ok, honestly, a person who hasn't met another person in her lifetime and hadn't dealt with outside world ever, her behavior was tilted more towards idealism than reality. For being a DP movie, it's all great, but in reality, it would hardly be the case. She's got to be much more nervous and skittish and even aloof and reserved than shown in the movie.
A little more rude and biting in her words than needed. I mean no one forced her into making her dream a reality, did they? Even her parents wanted her to enjoy life more than obsessing over one ambition in life. I wish she could have enjoyed the journey to her dreams more than the destination itself. She didn't have to be alone in her struggle for her dreams.
A bit too much aggression. She needs to get down from the high horse she keeps riding on and listen to others carefully before plunging into action. She could have saved everyone a lot of trouble, if only she had a cool head on her.
Now that I have picked on every DP, I hope I haven't hurt any loyalist fans here too much. Let's be nice in arguments. Love to hear from you all, as always.
