    "There's gonna be an abusive British boy in this movie somewhere" damn Dylan really predicted colonialism
  • I love how Dylan went from actively avoiding musicals to embracing this sing-along

    being a dylan is in trouble fan is a combination of rewatching his past videos, forgetting he exists for a while, then being excited when he uploads again (on every Monday).

    This man will never cease to amaze me in the way he randomly brings in Audible.

    What's really cool about Moana (if you are a history nerd like me) is that it creates a myth around the the historical break in exploration by the Polynesian peoples. No one know why, but they stopped expanding to further islands for like 1,000 years.

    I don't know what killed me more: Dylan not seeing that Moana's grandmother was introduced as an old lady while Moana was a baby and didn't "predict" she was going to die later or the fact that after she was on her death bed he still thought that Moana was gonna save her and she would continue to live fruitful life.
  • Dylan if you’re reading this, remember that the Heart of Te Fiti has the power of life itself. The moment Grandma passed it to Moana, death came quickly for her. It’s implied that her lifespan wasn’t supposed to be as long as it was, and that the only reason she lasted as long as she did was because the power of the Heart was keeping her alive. If that part feels out of nowhere or sudden, it’s because Grandma was keeping the Heart safe for Moana until she was sure she understood her mission and was old enough to complete it. Because the second she gave the Heart up, she would die, and if she wasn’t absolutely sure Moana was mature enough to take it, then all hope of having someone from Motunui return it would be lost.

    Dylan being increasingly upset with Disney not having their space bar pause correctly on Disney+ is the funniest thing to me. It’s literally so bad I do not know why Disney does not have space bar=pause consistency

    I also love how he appreciated how badass Moana is at the end of the movie. Like, yeah, that scene with the water parting and Te Ka is really cool, I’m glad he acknowledged it as such.

    That comment from “Anonym” has me absolutely in tears from laughing. They’re both so concerned yet reprimanding😂
    But Dylan…choosing a sing along for a movie you’ve never watched…fucking insane😂
    Also, your reaction to the space bar (which I agree with) never not funny!!!

    I love how impressed Dylan was with Auli'i Cravalho's voice acting.

    “The dad is just traumatized, and now he’s taking his trauma out on everybody”

    Wow that line is unexpectedly deeply Dylan…

    Love seeing Dylan getting the recognition he deserves #11 on trending!

    Ursula, Moana’s grandma, an island, a seashell…there is definitely an undeniable aquatic theme to your taste.

    I think we can always assume three things about Dylan: His never ending grudge with Disney+'s space bar, his thirst for violence, that he is TOTALLY not a GILF man(*wink wink nudge nudge*)

    Dylan’s “Shiny” analogy: Spot on! The song and scene have always creeped me out, much like certain scenes in Thumbelina…
  • Kruz Sanchez
    You can tell Dylan was genuinely just enjoying the movie most of the time

    You literally made my sister’s week. She loves Moana and she also loves you. She thinks you’re the best. So when we both saw you did this, we were excited. She was literally laughing so hard I thought she was gonna fall onto the ground. She’s a teacher who has been thru a lot the last couple of years and still healing from it. Seeing her relax and have fun watching this commentary was just what the doctor ordered. Thanks Dylan! See ya next Monday!

    I don't know if anyone already commented on this but there is a theory that just before Moana got to Maui she died (she fell off her boat in the scene before with the storm) and became a demigod. That's why she was able to find Maui and speak to her dead grandmother. You'll also notice that Maui told her that he was thrown into the ocean (I presume he died then) and only after that did the gods find him and he became a demigod. Moana also dived to the bottom of the ocean after she gave the heart back to it just to retrieve it which would also probably be very hard if she were still human but not if she were a demigod.

    "i'll see you next monday" dylan is genuinely one of the most consistent uploaders and i love that
  • Robyn Dare
    It wasn't explicitly covered but the reason the ocean couldn't just put the heart back itself was cause te fiti was te ka, who couldn't be touched by the water. There's still the issue of the ocean picking and choosing when to actually help moana, but I think the general idea behind that is it tends to only assist her when she's already dead set on doing something anyway, cause if it was too easy then moana wouldn't connect with her wayfinding roots and start up her people's voyaging again so the ocean can be travelled upon?
