there needs to be a special word for movies like fight club and a clockwork orange that means “movies that make really valid and important points about society but get completely ruined and misinterpreted by dudebros who refuse to look even remotely closely at the movies they claim to love and use them to justify being a fuckin dick”
Avery has been bugging me for a few months now to get her hair cut, and I finally gave in. I was hoping it would be a fleeting thing, because I love her beautiful long hair, but she wants it cut, and there was no stopping her!
So after Christian got back from the movies with them, I took Avery to the salon and helped her pick out her length. And I think she looks just adorable with it!
She asked if we could go get a new picture taken of her for school, but I had to explain to her that we couldn’t do that. She was only disappointed for a little while :)
Adelynn, when asked if she wanted her hair cut as well, furiously shook her head “no” saying she didn’t want to look just like her sister anymore.
The days of matching outfits are over, my friends!
And of course, the girls were full of energy this evening, so getting a good picture was completely out of the question. But the girls look cute anyway, right?
Me, about a year ago: I’m kinda interested by the others movies from the DCEU but I just don’t feel Man of Steel. Looks too dark, people always point out flaws about it, it doesn’t seem that great and I don’t like the few changes they’ve made, at least that I heard of? So idk if I should get invested in the DCEU
Me, now that I finished watching Man Of Steel for the first time: This movie is Amazing. It was amazing to watch and so intense and full of good moments and I’m actually smiling so hard, the changes didn’t bother me at all in fact I even totally loved them and I really like this version of Superman and the world building and I need to watch BvS right now wtf
watched bakemono no ko (The Boy and the Beast) yesterday, and I might be getting old because i couldn’t get into it. I mean i loved Girl who leapt through time and Wolf Children, so I expected this movie to floor me…and some of the elements of it did, but only a little. During most of the second and third act i felt detached like hell - in a “you’re doing this again, why are you doing this again?” sense. And now i feel like a dick because the movie got stellar reviews and I couldn’t comprehend the greatness. I am the grandma.
remember when everyone was reading the hunger games and one of the major themes was how the media toned down all the horrible things that were happening to focus on the bullshit love story
and then the books got made into movies and the real life media toned down the horrible things that were happening to focus on the bullshit love story
because I still think about that sometimes
You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that’s what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant… oh, fuck it. - The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
When I was a kid, I thought Zootopia was this perfect place, where everyone got along and anyone could be anything. Turns out, real life is a little bit more complicated than a slogan on a bumper sticker. Real life is messy. We all have limitations, we all make mistakes, which means - hey, glass half full! - we all have a lot in common. And the more we try to understand one another, the more exceptional each of us will be. But we have to try. So no matter what type of animal you are; from the biggest elephant, to our first fox, I implore you - try. Try to make the world a better place. Look inside yourself and recognize that change starts with you. It starts with me. It starts with all of us.
