Judging a movie by its title is really stupid.

The one where Po goes through the same exact character arc as he did in the first?

How so?

I felt like the third was him coming to terms with his past rather than coming into his own strength, like the first one (and the 2nd one shamelessly copied)

Okay, seriously, it sounds like you're mixing the second and third one up.

The second one was more about him coming to terms with his past.

The third one was the one that shamelessly copied the first with the whole "coming into one's own strength" thing.

Actually, when I saw this film, it isn't as offensive as the name suggests.  It's pro-gay and pro-black at the same time.

The 2nd one is the one with the peacock right?  It's been a while since I saw that film, so I may be a little iffy, but that film more or less felt like Po needed to regain some sorta inner strength while the 3rd felt like he was seeing his people for the first time and learning more about his ancestry as a panda.  His arc felt more or less like he was trying to find a balance between his past and his present with the whole two gay dads thing.

So I've heard. But a movie's title tells you what to expect from it, so it makes sense that if you don't like animated kid's movies, you wouldn't go see something called "Kung-Fu Panda." Just like how if you didn't like sci-fi movies, you wouldn't see "Alien," and if you weren't an emo faggot, you wouldn't see "Suicide Squad."

I mean, of course. Diego is right about what to expect though, and I don't generally care for animated films outside of Pixar.

Moody fails to recognize that you were not judging the film. You merely said you didn't see it because the title put you off. You made no judgement about the actual quality of the movie, i.e. "The title is stupid so the movie is stupid."

Yeah, the second one was the one with the peacock, but it was about Po learning about his past and how that fit with the present, and finding inner peace in who he was, because he was all conflicted about that.

The third one didn't really go into how Po felt about the two dads thing.  That was a conflict that the two settled on their own.  Po's arc was more tied to mastering the whole inner strength chi thing and being a teacher, which led to him to learning the exact same lesson as Shifu in the first movie.

Kung Fu Panda is one of the greatest animated films ever made.

The second is really fun too. Haven't seen the third.

Frank states a simple truth.
Though I don't know if it can beat out Ratatouille anymore.
