Public, because this seems like an educational moment. Mollyhall, your 4000 posts in 2 minutes about Six Flying Dragons piqued my interest. Please explain this show?

OKAY. the plot of this show is: 1300s korea. politics are very corrupt, duh. into this world comes…

6 very grumpy individuals who band together to make a better nation:

  1. Jeong Do-jeon: Mastermind Who Wishes Kids Would Stop Following Him Around, really just wants to make up a new political system and be left alone by everyone in the world, because everyone in the world is an idiot, including his #1 fan/closest rival, named –>
  2. Bang-won: Righteous Murder Nerd Disappointed In All His Father Figures, always has 4000 emotions he is VERY excited to talk about with everyone who will listen but especially with the love of/greatest irritant in his life, who is –>
  3. Boon-yi: Smol & Bossy Peasant Girl Who Is Always 100% DTF (Down To Fight), truly believes a family can be just 1 girl & 200 villagers that insist on calling her “Our General” and is incredibly irritated any time anyone makes her experience an emotion, particularly her older brother, called –>
  4. Ddang-sae: Self-Hating Waif On Life Mission To Protect The Two (2) Things On This Hellpit Of A Planet That He Even Sort Of Likes, namely his sister & his ex-girlfriend, deeply exhausted by people insisting he participate in politics or society writ large, with special attention to –>
  5. Moo-hyul: Big & Strong Dumbo With A Heart Of Gold, mostly just wants to get food for his 82 siblings and mean mom, but also very interested in getting famous, perhaps by way of fighting Ddang-sae for the title of Best Swordsman but also perhaps by teaching from  –>
  6. Yi Seong-gye: Stern & Disgruntled War Hero Who Accidentally Adopts Them All, old as balls, very tired, just wants to keep his head down and run his army but keeps plucking angry children off the street and raising them instead

it’s 50 episodes of everybody falling in love with everybody else and being very irritated about it. also there’s a lot of speeches about how rich people suck & reading is cool. also, murder. really just ….. a WHOLE lot of murder.

additional & notable plot points:

  • this show features my ULTIMATE FAVE TROPE, which is ride or die siblings who hate everyone except each other
  • ddang-sae’s (ex)girlfriend has 0 time for his manpain and is very busy enacting a convoluted revenge plot
  • there is an ARMY OF LADY SPIES
  • a raggedy bang of beggars/ersatz theatre troupe is constantly showing up to be like, “y’all are SO DRAMATIC, and we are saying this as THEATER PEOPLE”
  • bang-won and boon-yi are vERY important to me, particularly because she is constantly biting him and he is constantly shouting, “STOP DOING THAT AND LOVE ME,” to which she usually responds, “THEN STOP DOING ANNOYING SHIT THAT MAKES ME WANT TO BITE YOU (also i do love you) (never mention this to me again)”
  • this show features a set of twins who are constantly getting mad that people are calling them by the wrong name, and one of them solves this issue by insisting on wearing bright blue eyeshadow
  • “Welcome To My Garden Where I Plant My Murder Trees :)”
  • loyal sidekicks abound

10/10, highly recommend. it starts a little slow, so get through the first like, 5 episodes. i’d say you could skip them but there are some TRULY entrancing character scenes i’d had for you to miss.

The fandoms contempt for Celine makes me so uncomfortable - like it’s got this uncomfortable undercurrent of misogyny. Blaming her for everything that happened. Even kinda write out her romance with William and replace her with Damien ( which don’t get me wrong I love the interpretation there’s something there AS WELL )

yes let’s blame the poor woman who fell out of love with her husband and had a moment of weakness

NOT THE SOCIOPATH WHO LITERALLY DID EVERYTHING AND ACTUALLY KILLED PEOPLE AND WALKED AROUND IN DAMIENS SKIN PRETENDING TO BE HIM TO MANIPULATE HIS CLOSEST FRIENDS

No yes let’s blame the once unfaithful woman - not the spoiled child who lost all his got damn sanity because of getting cheated on.

I’m not saying that the scene of her at the door shrouded in power and scary isn’t worth inquiry but calling her trash and trying to invent some way where she’s the evil mastermind behind all of this is …. gross.

frankly I’m with will

I could be wrong about this and just being forgetful, but in Newsies Live I don’t remember Davey being a focus of the strike going terribly wrong scene? Like Jack interacts more with Les than I remember Davey does?

I would love to see David “Mr. Rule Follower For Part Of The Show” Jacobs just like going after one of the Delancey brothers for harming a hair on his brother’s head and flattening Morris or something, being surprised that he had it in him to punch someone, and just grabbing Les and booking it.

Random thought on Ep06

- Poor Lorca, he need help…. not hatred

- I think Stamets is acting strange this Episode. What wrong with him?

- Lorca & Ash ship is interesting BUT I still dream about Ash/Hugh/Paul love triangle.

- When Cornwell mention about torture. I just think what if Lorca get some sexual abusive off screen. Since that female Klingon capable to do such thing to Ash before.

- They mention Spock and Enterprise. YES!

- Where is scene between Ash & Hugh in Sickbay?!

I think we’re kind of starting to get away from this but have y’all noticed how in the vast majority of popular media, sex scenes don’t actually tend to involve a lot of talking/fumbling/awkwardness unless it’s for humor or to indicate that the people having sex are a.) probably Wrong for each other somehow or b.) inexperienced, possibly having sex for the first time?

but “good” sex, between people who are experienced and In Love etc, is almost always effortlessly athletic and steamy and they somehow telepathically know exactly what to do. I’m not talking about knowing what their lover enjoys, that’s entirely feasible, but they never even have to coordinate what they’re doing. there’s no “do you want me on top?” or “do you want to do [x]?” or accidentally getting in each other’s way.

the overwhelming message that I’ve always gotten from pop culture is that Good Sex happens without communication and, more dangerously, that needing to communicate is a sign that you’re somehow bad at sex, when in reality that’s almost definitely a sign that you’re, you know, a considerate partner who actually gives a shit about people being comfortable when they have sex with you.  

Baby Driver

this movie is flawless and here are some reasons why:

  • the whole soundtrack
  • the entire beginning sequence
  • when Griff (Jon Bernthal) gets in the car during the first heist and points forward and Baby slams it backwards
  • sign language
  • Joe made me so happy?
  • also when he signed “who’s the girl?”
  • Ansel Elgort’s lips? blocked
  • you can hear his tinnitus (ringing sound) when he’s not listening to music
  • you can’t hear his tinnitus when he’s with Deborah
  • when he takes one ear bud out the music shifts to one side
  • Kevin Spacey. just overall. i love him
  • “what the fuck?”
  • when he goes to get coffee and he’s listening to Harlem Shuffle by Bob & Earl you can see the lyrics graffiti-ed on the walls and poles and stuff behind him as he’s walking
  • when Baby is ordering coffee and he goes “yeah yeah yeah” in time with the song
  • Baby reciting back the entire plan and then looking at Bats and going “questions?”
  • “That’s my Baby.” “Fuck yo’ Baby.”
  • the gunshots are perfectly in time with the music during every fight sequence
  • when Buddy cocks Darling’s gun for her
  • Darling’s outfits
  • she’s also rly pretty the fuck
  • Brighton Rock??? What the fuck???? so good I love Queen
  • “And you’re in a pink and sparkly mood?” “I am now.”
  • Every time Baby smirks I wanna punch him
  • the sunglasses scene
  • the scene where he’s running away from the cops is just as intense as the car chase scenes and the gun fights
  • Simon and Garfunkel’s Baby Driver is so catchy fuck
  • “Wait, I have to start the song over.”
  • When he goes into the diner and it starts playing When Something Is Wrong With My Baby
  • Baby singing along to Neat Neat Neat
  • “Now you know I hate taking candy from Baby…”
  • Jamie Foxx’s character was unpredictable, and a little unnerving. He wasn’t like terrifying but there definitely were moments where I wasn’t sure what he was gonna do and it made me nervous
  • side note my dad was peeing when Bats died and when he came back and I told him Baby killed Bats he went “ah, good.”
  • “You took something from me that I love, now you know I gotta do the same to you.” Oh yea for sure he’s gonna shoot Deb- FUCK
  • that part was honestly so good I spent like 5 minutes with my mouth hanging open like fuck you Buddy you can’t take that away from him :’( 
  • but it also shows that Buddy really understood Baby and remember that he kinda stood up for Baby and they were bonding a lil with music and stuff it just shows how unpredictable he was
  • I have legitimately been listening to the soundtrack for this movie since I saw it a week ago today
  • his name is Miles
  • if Edgar Wright and James Gunn made a movie together I would die immediately upon entering the theater

don’t worry I’ll see this movie 8937459 more times so expect more of this

I’d like to take a moment to talk about Bill Skarsgård’s performance as Pennywise, and particularly the drain scene, as it’s the only one I can repeatedly watch a portion of in good quality to analyze his physicality in the role.

Because so much of his performance is made by his movements, even in the aforementioned scene where he’s just a talking head:

Cover up the eye on your right, and Pennywise is looking up out of the storm drain at Georgie.  Cover the eye on your left, and where’s it looking?  Right at you.

Pennywise’s eyes move independently like this throughout the movie, and it’s not a CGI effect. Skarsgård has a lazy eye and while he can focus it, he’s also able to relax the muscle and put it back out of alignment.  And while having strabismus obviously isn’t a choice on Skarsgård’s part, he uses it brilliantly in this movie when he could have just not utilized it at all.  You’d think having a wandering eye would make him seem less threatening (usually when you see lazy eyes on film, they’re on comedic actors such as Marty Feldman or Steve Buscemi).  But he positions himself with the camera so perfectly, making his character seem like a threat who can see through the protection of the fourth wall.  Even if you don’t consciously notice that it’s looking at you, it’s these little details Skarsgård adds that make Pennywise seem just wrong.

(His contorted bottom lip is another of these traits.  That’s not a prosthetic like his cheeks are, it’s just something he does). 

Because that’s the thing about Pennywise: It’s not an evil clown.  It’s not human.  It is alien and unfathomable and everything Skarsgård does with his performance reminds you of that.  Tim Curry’s Pennywise (whom I love and this is not a knock on his take) was an evil clown who was also an otherworldly abomination. Skarsgård’s Pennywise is an extraterrestrial horror who is wearing a clown’s skin, and it doesn’t quite fit.

Just look at the sewer scene: You’re seeing an animal that just came out of hibernation and is so hungry for a meal that it can barely keep itself from revealing the ruse to its prey.  It wants Georgie to trust it, like it, and approach it, and its voice is gentle (for it), and it’s funny and inviting.  But it’s also drooling all over as if it doesn’t understand or doesn’t care how a human mouth works, and it doesn’t know or care how people focus their eyes either.  It’s struggling to hold itself together and it’s very close to breaking: it growls at Georgie in the middle of the scene, and surely it’s learned in the last few centuries that humans don’t growl mid-conversation?

You could argue that it’s not failing to act human, it just needs Georgie to be scared to eat him.  Fair enough, but Pennywise doesn’t reveal its true self until it’s already holding onto its meal in the book.  And in the movie, it’s clearly anxious when it thinks it might have scared its prey away:

(The nerves don’t come out as well in the photo, but if you watch the shortened clip here, around 43 seconds in, it swallows hard and is obviously worried Georgie might leave: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jwlbgSHZgk)

It’s unnerving.  It makes you shudder even when it makes you laugh.  And Skarsgård puts that much uneasiness into a scene showing just his head, shoulders, and occasionally his hand.  In the scenes utilizing his whole body, it gets even more eerie.

It’s a fantastic performance.  And even more so because some of these things were not entirely under  Skarsgård’s control: He couldn’t choose to have strabismus and the drooling was caused by his prosthetic teeth.  But rather than trying to hide anything, he embraced it, and managed to make things as human as saliva and wandering eyes seem utterly monstrous.

I really hope the sequel gives Pennywise more dialogue and still scenes, because it’s a thousand times more disturbing there than it is when it’s darting at the camera.

Something I wish Inquisition had given us: the option to just hang out with our friends.

We have friendly rooftop time with Sera and it’s wonderful. But where is my option to spar with Cassandra? To ask Blackwall to teach me woodworking, or Solas to teach me painting? To ask Bull if he wants a drink? To sit in a corner and read with Dorian? To wander Skyhold with Cole looking for hurts to help? To listen to Varric tell a story? To discuss fashion with Vivienne? To play more chess games with Cullen? To have another long balcony talk with Josephine? To pray to the Maker with Leliana if faithful, or to just persuade her to take a five minute break to chat if not?

Non-romantic time spent together. Give it to me.

alec looking at magnus ( 5 / ?? )

Just things I want to mention/point out from 303:

  • Morty not trusting Rick when he was telling him to flip over the pickle 
  • Beth admiring her father for supposedly not needing to ask anyone for anything
  • Rick: “Yeah, there’s lots I wouldn’t do to see my daughter, but killing you gets me to her quicker than your derivative bullshit!”
  • Rick told the Russians to give the money to Jaguar’s daughter
  • This exchange:
    • Jaguar: “Pickle Man, it’s too late for me to tell my daughter I love her, but not for you.”
    • Rick: “Oh, well, uh, she knows, we don’t really buy into that kind of crap.”
    • (Is he talking about Beth or Jaguar’s daughter?)
  • Rick admitting he left his daughter behind in a world of mutants
  • Summer saying she just likes getting high
  • The therapist’s two monologues to Beth and Rick, respectively:
    • “I think it’s possible that you and your father have a very specific dynamic, I don’t think it’s one that rewards emotion or vulnerability, I think it may punish them, I think it’s possible that that dynamic eroded your marriage and is affecting your kids with a tendency to misdirect your feelings.
    • “Rick, the only connection between your unquestionable intelligence and the sickness destroying your family, is that everyone in your family, you included, use intelligence to justify sickness. You seem to alternate between viewing your own mind as an unstoppable force, and as an inescapable curse. And I think it’s because the only truly unapproachable concept for you is that it’s your mind within your control. You chose to come here, you chose to talk, to belittle my vocation, just as you chose to become a pickle. You are the master of your universe, and yet you are dripping with rat blood and feces, your enormous mind literally vegetating by your own hand. I have no doubt that you would be bored senseless by therapy. The same way I’m bored when I brush my teeth and wipe my ass. Because the thing about repairing, maintaining, and cleaning is that it’s not an adventure. There’s no way to do it so wrong that you might die. It’s just, work. And the bottom line is, some people are okay going to work, and some people…well, some people would rather die. Each of us gets to choose.”
  • Rick awkwardly apologizing to Beth for lying
  • Rick asking Beth to get a drink with him
  • Morty and Summer kind of indicating they liked therapy and wanted to go back
  • Jaguar saving Rick and Morty’s lives in the post-credits scene
