Christina Ricci as Wednesday Addams/ Pocahontas in Addams Family Values

"Wait, we can not break bread with you. You have taken the land which is rightfully ours. Years from now my people will be forced to live in mobile homes on reservations. Your people will wear cardigans, and drink highballs. We will sell our bracelets by the road sides, and you will play golf. My people will have pain and degradation. Your people will have stick shifts. The gods of my tribe have spoken. They said do not trust the pilgrims. And especially do not trust Sarah Miller. For all these reasons I have decided to scalp you and burn your village to the ground."

Assuredly, the morbid Addams humor is an acquired taste. Who else but an Addams would play "Wake the Dead" in a graveyard or use "Grey's Anatomy" as a cookbook? Like the cartoons, it isn't so much what the Addams folks actually do that's funny as what we see them ABOUT to do. In the introductory scene of the first movie, for instance, a group of carolers are merrily singing their hearts out in front of the Addams residence while the camera pans slowly upward to a shot of the family above, gleefully standing on the roof, ready to pour boiling oil on the revelers below. They're not demented, just different. It's their wild sense of nonconformity that makes the Addams family perennial favorites of just about everybody who has ever wanted to tweak the nose of conventionality or authority. They are macabre, modern-day equivalents of the Marx Brothers. John J. Puccio (DVD.TOWN)

Of the two movies, the second one is by far my favorite. The kids' summer camp experience is the highlight of the story.

11 Oct 2006 @ 18:28 by Hanae @ : Pope Alexander Vl's legacy

"In the beginning of American History a religious leader who claimed to speak for God gave all the lands west of the Azores and Cape Verde Islands to the King of Spain, if it wasn't already in the possession of some other Catholic King.

This decree issued by Pope Alexander Vl, effective from Christmas Day 1492 , is on display at the General Archive of the Indies in Seville, Spain.

The bigotry and intolerance this decree created for Native Americans was realized when upon seeing the Tarawa Indians of the Bahamas, Columbus wrote, 'They would make fine servants. With fifty men we could subjugate them and make them do whatever we want'.

The problem with dehumanizing people in order to take their land is, that the next step is to take their lives also. Genocide in the Americas is not an easy subject to address- not for any American."

I really liked this film, I saw it last night.
I had to watch it again this morning, it was really funny!
I thought Wednesday was the best part of the film, me and my cousin were marvelling at how good Christina is at keeping a straight face.
Lol. Wednesday all the way. :DD
