I went to see it with [personal profile] me_and and [personal profile] sebastienne and [personal profile] shortcipher on, I think, the 24th of December; I walked out completely underwhelmed, completely unconvinced by the characters, and just not caring.

And then I read a bunch of meta, including all the discussion over at [personal profile] recessional's (no spoilers in post; spoilers in comments are ROT13ed) and [personal profile] nanila's not-a-review, which prompted the realisation that me liking the characters or finding them convincing wasn't the point, and then I cried a lot.

So! That's a thing. Noting for posterity, etc. Perhaps I will watch it again sometime soon.
kaberett: Stylized volcano against a stormy sky, with streams of lava running down its sides. (volcano)
On the grounds that pretty much the bare minimum I ought to do after watching Moana was actually read some discussion (and it would have been better if I'd done that first), herewith a brief linkspam. A lot of these have been discussed in detail in the Facebook group Mana Moana: We Are Moana, We Are Maui.

I am not willing to host White People Criticise Critiques Of Racism. If you are a white person and you want to criticise any of the links here, (a) please actually try to read the discussions Pasifika people are having about this because that will give you a better understanding than discussion with me (do not wade in to tell them they're wrong if you go read), but also (b) I am okay with you PMing me to go "??? you thought this was worth sharing can you unpack some more for me" or similar.

I posted in December about the abrupt implosion of CyanogenMod. The code fork, LineageOS, now has a bunch of images built and ready to install. Visit the Downloads page to find your device, and see the blog post Update & Build Prep for more details; the EXPERIMENTAL build may provide a seamless upgrade from CyanogenMod but you may well still have to wipe everything, and the option's going away in just under two months' time.
