Film Theory: Did Mulan REALLY Save China? (Disney Mulan Trailer)

Mulan is an AMAZING movie - the songs, the characters, the redefining of roles in society! During my previous Disney series of videos where I figured out the most deadly of Disney movies, Mulan peaked my interest for another reason. While researching the avalanche scene where the majority of the Huns were taken out, I learned a bit more about how the science of avalanches work. It posed the question, did Mulan's rocket attack REALLY defeat the Huns or did the Huns ACCIDENTALLY defeat themselves? You are about to find out!

    Is "Calvary" just the american version of cavalry? Like "Aluminum" and aluminium? I'm extremely linguistically confused.

    I really hate to be this person and if someone else has said it, then I'm sorry but my nerd brain wouldn't let me rest until I pointed out that Matpat used the word "calvary" which is actually a site from religious texts when he probably meant "cavalry" which refers to soldiers on horseback. Huge apologies from this grammar nerd for subjecting you to my corrections.

    They should have used the mongols instead of the Huns. The Huns never invaded China while the mongols actually did. Gunpowder wasn’t around when Huns were around but they have fireworks in Mulan. But gunpowder was around when the mongols invaded China

    “Please tell me someone can relate to this” You know what, as a 14 year old summer camp counselor I can, I truly can. It was fun the first week but I’m sorry if I’m starting to grow a little hatred for old town road and all the remixes. We have an entire playlist for this bus but we play the same song multiple times a day. It is two bus rides a day for half of the summer and I have heard this song so many times I know all the lyrics to more than one of the remixes. This is more than a rant this is a cry for help (even though I haven’t been to camp since august and because of rona I can’t go back this summer but still. It’s tiring man)

    In Canada we have people that set charges to _cause_ 'controlled avalanche' If there controlled no one dies driving down the highways. If it did happen 'naturally', well it'd go right onto the highways with you know all the moving cars, trucks & semi's driving!! Crazy business. Thank you Lands & Forests workers Along with Highway safety peoples! 🤗🍁👏👏👏

    DaveyDAKFAE13 dager siden

    Physicist here: the reason that it doesn't take much explosive force to cause an avalanche is actually the same reason the stampede of horses would be insufficient. Both are results of the properties granular packing. When you slap a tree, it stays still (citation needed), but when you slap a snowbank that weighs far more, some snow goes a lot farther. This is because snow grains, like all granular solids, are terrible at communicating force across distance. Basically if you hit snow hard enough in the right spot, it has no way to communicate that force to a stable object like a tree can communicate it to the ground with its trunk and roots. So it just ups and leaves, F=ma style. And there's your avalanche. But that also means that if the sweet spot is at the top of the mountain, any amount of force hitting snow a kilometer away or even 10 meters away doesn't even reach the sweet spot. So no, MatPat, we can conclude that the stampeding horses wouldn't have caused that particular avalanche. There is still an unrelated chance they could be close enough to another sweet spot, but there is nothing in the film to suggest a second avalanche spot.

    As someone who has lived in a snowy mountainous region it is totally feasible that it could cause avalanche. If you throw a rock at the wrong bit of snow you could theoretically cause one.

    you can clearly see that though this is a dragon headed rocket it is a completely different style as opposed to the form of artillery. Better idea would’ve been to actually take the aerodynamics of that particular form of artillery shown in the movie to see whether it would be feasible.
