I don't understand how they failed so badly with casting Fleur in Harry Potter. Her main trait is being stunningly beautiful yet they cast (and I do feel slightly bad saying this kek) this incredibly ugly to average woman to play her. They could maybe have gotten away with it, but they can't when all the supposed nerdy and plain looking girls in the books are played by people who are way more attractive than her.

Casting the "most beautiful" girl alive is always going to be difficult because beauty is so subjective. The only way to make it work for the movie would probably to have given certain filters when she was present like how og Star Trek used to do soft filters on women to give them an aura, but it would be hard to do that without it looking weird.

said you can't convey "most beautiful" to a large audience without special effects. They needed like a blur and flowing hair and sparkles, etc., it wasn't the actresses fault lol. Even if they cast the hottest, tallest, most lithe beauty…. the camera just records an image and the magic is lost without editing. Literally "movie magic" is making you believe in a fantasy and they def botched it but I don't blame the casting immediately.

No. 252377

This is dumb. I hate comparisons like these because the supposedly more beautiful book version is always just featured with extremely heavy and filtered makeup. This is such a male take on what beauty is. The book doesn't describe her as wearing heavy makeup. It describes her with naturally beautiful features and most importantly, the fact that there's something about her beyond her looks that attracts men like the veelas.

No. 252382

I agree with OP in a way, Clemence Poesy is a beautiful woman for sure but I hoped to see someone who will really stand out, as the character was described; extras casted as the rest of Beauxbatons students are just as pretty as her. Of course with beauty it's always going to be divisive because everyone has a different idea of beauty but simple tricks as for example getting an actress that would be a bit taller and modelesque (even if it meant she would look somewhat unique as a lot models do, that would still work well for a part-veela character)

They didn't need to cast the objectively most beautiful girl in the world, all they needed was a pretty actress who was on the same level (or prettier) as the other girls casted. They failed to even make her the prettiest Beauxbaton, most of the girls we see from there would have made a perfectly fine Fleur. I know it's a touchy subject to criticize a woman's looks and people are always going to reply "but I think she's pretty!!!" but I'm not saying her acting is bad or that she's a hideous wretch - just that I think she is unfit for this role in these circomstances.
Of course I'm going to pick a pic of what she actually looks like in the movie most of the time rather than the one or two shots she looked nice in.
I think she subjectively has a slightly masculine face, and that she would look cool in a tough tomboy role.
Again like I said she looks bad compared to the other girls who are pretty but supposed to be plain. It's not fair to say "well it's only because the other girls were super pretty" when that's the whole point - they only had to cast someone who looked good relative to the other cast members.

That still doesn't explain why they didn't do any of the makeup Michael Keaton originally wore. No bald cap, no pale foundation, no dark circles, and no mold/barf around the mouth.

>bad voice actor casting
This made me immediately think of the one time I tried to watch Marvel's What If…? for like one or two episodes just to see how it was like. I remember thinking Sebastian Stan, even though he was casted as Bucky like in the live action films, was atrocious when it came to voicing this same character in animation. I simply think he's bad at it. They got a replacement to voice Captain America in the show kek. Bucky should have been replaced for this one too if that was the result.

2012 movie adaptation of The Man Who Laughs by Hugo. Didn't even watch it tbh, and it's not even about casting itself but more about the makeup. This one is supposed to be a hideously disfigured character, with all his teeth exposed and all, with a scar from one ear to another. Wtf?? It makes the story don't make any sense. The same goes for 2004 Phantom of the Opera, where Gerard Butler has a face that's just smoked a bit on one side.

I hate race swapping when they're claiming to make a real life adaptation of something. The only reason I want to watch it is because I want to see what those exact characters would look like irl, I don't want to see them redesigned and unrecognizable. However if it's a reimagining or something that is frequently adapted I think it's cool and am all for it. Usually disney characters are already reimagined from fairytales so I usually don't mind those being race swapped tbh. I've seen 50 different Cinderellas, make her whatever you want at this point.

Picrel is the WORST casting I've ever seen (especially Flora- sorry I mean Terra) but that show was so incredibly off the mark and terrible that it's almost cheating to pick this one. Breaks my heart that they messed this one up, would have loved a good winx adaptation.

Nta but this is just classic moid producers at play, caring about "accuracy" only when it helps them ruin what little female gaze had manage to sneak itself into that franchise.
Throughout the years the character of Gómez had turned into that of a good looking and adoring husband, absolutely devoted to his wife. Now it's conveniently some ugly simp with a wife out of his league.
They're full of talk about it being "accurate" to the original comic yet Wednesday is supposed to be like 6 to 10 years old, like the whole point of the character is that she's a funny creepy child, as opposed to the societal expectation of a sweet little girl dressed in pink. But what the fuck is this yassified 20 year old tiktoker-looking woman. To me it's as if they'd yassified Matilda, like iirc Mara Wilson and Christina Ricci were both like 9 when they played these characters. I also hate that the gave her that basic-ass e-girl fringe.
It bothers me how they blatantly sexualize the women and uglyfy the men and then dare to try to pass it off a progressive lol. As if they couldn't just cast a hot latino dude as they should have.

I think they almost got it right.

I think if they had gone all in on the cartoon nature they were trying to adapt from it could have been great, but since they decided to make it so dark and muddy and washed out of any colour it loses that fun whimsical factor that would have let it all come together.

They chose a black mixed girl to play the blonde and blue eyed nordic viking girl. It's not the actress fault of course, but they really couldn't just have found a nordic person to play her? ANY nordic person? Why is cultural accuracy only a thing people cry for when it's not white people's cultures? Because woke Americans can't fathom white people being different and having their own cultures, language and history?
So "it's just a cartoon omg why do you care" for vikings, but the same people will go "how fucking dare you consider a non-asian actress for the Mulan movie it has to be 100% respectful of Chinas history". Yet both are fiction based on real peoples cultures.

But we really just want fucking accuracy to the characters we know and love, are they going to take this black mixed actress and literally white-wash her to look white to fit the role? Is that LESS racist than just hiring a white woman to play a white character? Or is Astrid just doomed to be a brown eyed, dark haired girl now?

Not the fault of the actresses that disney and other big corporations choose to hire them because they know the controversy will create buzz. And they know the actors will be blamed instead of them.

And that's also why people with dwarfism weren't allowed to play the dwarves on snow white, they can't force those poor disabled little people to play a disabled role! That's ableism!

I'm just sad that current corporate america that controls a lot of western media is convinced that white people "don't have culture", and that IF you celebrate unique aspects of america you're a kkk-nazi-racist-redneck (unless you do it through a non-white person).
As a euroanon it's easier to travel and see how unique and different people here are despite all being "white". Their language, clothes, religion, folklore, environment and nature, trends… everything is unique and worthy of attention and celebration. But corporate america just goes "it's all just white people, so they're the same as white americans and their non-existing culture doesn't matter either lol". But it does, there is so much cool shit in pretty much every country on earth. The people are TRULY different, not just LA vs New York different.

America too, you have your own unique quirks that are interesting to the rest of the world. "White" americans have their own folklore, history, modern "corporate" halloween started there (like with pumpkins everywhere, and cosplay rather than just scary costumes), hamburger/fastfood culture started there. That's culture too but corporate media america doesn't seem to actually value it. They'll exploit it for money, but they don't think it has cultural value. As a result they devalue ALL white cultures, while hiring "native experts/advisors" to make sure movies like Moana is a respectful representation of that culture while still having fantasy elements.

Frozen 2 sucked ass so bad, they had a beloved super popular movie and they made the sequel so shit in all sorts of ways. I can't think of a single good decision made for that movie. I hope they never make a live action of Frozen but I feel it's inevitable due to how popular it was, and with their racist take that Elsa and Anna are half sami and that sami people aren't white (and seriously insisting they're not white is REALLY fucking creepy levels of racism to us in Scandinavia) they'll probably make edgy casting choices for Elsa and Anna and I'm not looking forwards to it. Maybe if we're lucky the woke race-bending disney era will have ended by then.

>Most major holidays in the US are european in origin like halloween and christmas and everyone who's white knows this. This isn't an american issue.
The modern popular traditions of halloween are from the US, even though they originally brought it from Europe. Pumpkins are SO synonymous with halloween that we don't even question it now and it's all because they started carving them in the US where they were natively growing. They didn't exist in Europe, the pumpkin carvings were unique to America. Same with the costumes mentioned. Scary costumes were the tradition, the US turned it into "any" costume. To this day in my country if you wear a non-scary costume on halloween people look at you funny. Furthermore my country has 2 halloweens, one is the original native/local European version of halloween which is simply for remembering the dead, with local folklore surrounding it. The other we literally call "halloween" (in English) and is American halloween imported because we suck up to the US and want to do that fun stuff we saw in hollywood movies. It's literally seen as 2 different things here because of how different they are.

It's the same for all holidays, just because they all shared the origin story doesn't mean they're not all unique and blended with the local culture. For example Siberia apparently has 7 Santas. Central and Eastern Europe has the Krampus, a demon goat creature that punish or kill bad kids. Northen Europe instead has a nice demon yule goat that brings children presents instead of Santa. And all of it is obvious to the people who live there. So a Siberian would look at American Christmas confused to why there's only one single santa, and an American might be in shock over the casual holiday portrayal of children being eaten alive by a demonic goat. That's what I'm saying, they're not the same at all anymore but corporate America assume they are.

I always hated Natalia Tena as Tonks in Harry Potter. I always thought she was supposed to be a cute but slightly edgy/punky girl but they made her more of a dirty goblin faced washed up grunge, she looks like she smells.

every single casting in peter jackson's lord of the rings movies except for saruman and galadriel. i guess gandalf was okay too. other than that, just horrendous.

My father actually commented on that when we were watching an action film on Netflix. He said that most legendary soldiers and commandos are usually young men in their twenties with fit bodies that most people wouldn't ever suspect are commandos and he ex-special forces himself, so I believe him.

idk she looks like the first description to me. sometimes there's an overlap between looking punky and dirty kek.

No. 318550

I just think she's kinda ugly and man-faced while Tonks was supposed to have a cute heart shaped face with twinkling eyes, and to me the outfit is "normie trying to make something punk and failing" rather than actual punk if that makes sense. The dye job on her hair is so bad too, it's yellow at the top

Who are some actors you would have picked instead, nona? Would you rather they kept Stuart Townsend on as Aragorn? I think they did pretty good, I especially liked the casting choices that made me laugh, like Hugo Weaving as Elrond. Didn't care for Legolas or Eomer personally but they grew on me.

In my mind Tonks looked more like this, she was supposed to look young and cute with spikey hair rather than a washed up wannabe punk with a bad dye job
Sorry for using a dumb AI image but I didn't want to use a real person as an example

The real Sid was 6'2 and much skinnier then that guy.
I like Sid (even if its obvious he did kill Nancy. It gets on my nerves when people say otherwise. And everyone should read Nancy's mom book before having a child)
Sid was also very charismatic, smarter then he let on and elegant in a rough way. I haven't seen the sex pistol Disney show because the idea just seems so wrong and tacky. I understand why John Lydon sued to stop the use of the songs.

They casted a black woman to portray a historical real life existing white nordic man. Like what the actual fuck? Didn't even change the male name, what kind of Dylan Mulvaney shit is that?

It also sparked a bunch of "were there real black vikings?" debates. No. No, there were exactly 0 black vikings. Just like there were no white mongolian warriors. No turkish samurai. No egyptian inuit whale hunters. Nobody wants this DEI shit anymore! Only a handful of whiny annoying people wanted it in the first place, and they've moved on to sucking the aformentioned Dylan's troon dick anyway, they're done pretedning they care about black people's "inclusion".

It would be one thing if the series was claiming to be a full on fantasy with a wide range of races from the start, but to use real people and misrepresent them and claim it's a take on real life history is so insidous. It's like they're saying there are 0 interesting black females in history so they simply have to force give them roles of white men, since they're oh so boring on their own! Like fuck off. Not to mention whoever wrote and casted her will get basically no backlash - but the actress will. She's going to be the one everyone angrily goes after, she's the one who will have her reputation tarnished from this.

as I stated in the fandom thread, it's always funny how wokies care so little about local people's, like none of them give a single shit about Inuit people and their history, it's only American identity politics.

Late as fuck reply, but is this supposed to be Varg? It looks NOTHING like him. I started watching that movie then quit when I found out it was made by vice lol, I've always wondered if it was actually worth watching. I'm guessing not lol

Nobody looks like their real life counterpart in this movie, except for the Attila Csihar cameo since he's played by the guy's son.

Yeah, the actor who played Dead looked nothing like him either and was even shorter than Rory culkin when euro was like 5’5 and dead was over 6ft and lanky. He had a big neanderthal jaw too not a tiny little elf head like that actor. I think rory was passable as euronymous, he's at least short (albeit doesn’t have his chubby little girl face).
