    Jaime and Cersei certainly think so.

    Now make them fight each other and tell us which side won.

    Yes, you have to use fireworks.

    And re:GOT, I agree that it has a lot of kid and young teenager characters for kids to relate with (fine, I relate most with Hot Pie:p). What if I just showed Daenerys parts from the first season? That's an inspirational story.

    And this is why I don't take your Disney opinions seriously--I assume it's incredibly elaborate irony.

    In related news, can I borrow some money?

    I haven't seen Aladdin since I was 7 or so, but I remember disliking it pretty intensely. I could be a very grouchy child. Of course, I also hated Beauty and the Beast, so I can't really put myself firmly on either side here.

    You Trioculus.

    I remember being scared of Beauty and the Beast when I was a kid. And many films I put off for years because they were too sad. The Fox and the Hound is one I own but have never watched all the way through in one sitting.

    My favorite (traditional) Disney film will always be Jungle Book. It was the first movie I ever remember watching when I was young, I was probably two or even younger when we got the first ever VHS release (a tape I believe we still have somewhere). Differences from the book be hanged, I love it from beginning to end. And unlike Pinocchio, it didn't traumatize me or give me a fear of whales.

    I have soft spots for Aladdin, Robin Hood, and The Great Mouse Detective as well. Most of the other films, both from the Renaissance era and before, I'm not a huge fan of, though. Lion King and Little Mermaid included. I'm indifferent to Beauty and the Beast, as I've only seen it once in its entirety. I was told all through growing up that I was basically the male version of Belle, so I purposely avoided it for years. And a lot of the newer films, like Tangled, I've not ever seen. I did love Wreck-It Ralph, though.

    Makes me think of the joke:
    "The War on Christmas is a great success! We now have limited Christmas to occupying a mere two and a half months of the year!"

    You would prefer to be Diversity Nomenclature of Units for Territorial Statistics (NUTS)?

    Now you should start repainting some to be more diverse and movie accurate.

    You need an Ackbar figure in the front holding a little "trap" warning sign.

    Finished Journey's End for Doctor Who. Wow. Loved it minus the fate of two characters.
