OK, I'm annoyed.  I saw a post a few days ago that said that people shouldn't be upset by the fact that Emma Watson is auto tuned in Beauty and the Beast because all movie musicals are auto tuned.

So, this is one of the many reasons the casting of a big name celebrity with little to no musical theatre experience bothers me so much.  Audiences are starting to think that in order to be in a musical, signing talent is not a necessity.

Also, this person obviously hasn’t seen a musical that was made before the year 2000.  Really, even later than that!  More like, anything before 2010. 

Here’s a homework assignment for this weekend.  Don’t worry it’s easy.  Look up:

In watching some videos of these wonderful people, you will see how much work goes into the craft of musical theatre and movie musicals.  

And, it bears mentioning, that at the time, these actors were “big names” and they were box office draws based on their singing and dancing talent.  I’m all for bringing that back.  If Hollywood wants to keep making movie musicals, then let’s bring back the movie musical star!

If you have doubts about seeing the new Beauty and the Beast movie because of certain decisions made by Disney...

….LeFou has done nothing to warrant hatred and is just amazing in this movie.

Seriously.

Go watch it and judge it for yourself. If you come to me and say you didn’t like it after you watched it, for whatever reasons you put forward, well…that’s your rightful opinion and I will accept and respect it like a gentleman.

Judging Disney’s decisions without even watching the damn movie is shameful, especially since this one is just…just great entertainment! Maybe not the best movie for 2017, but it certainly qualifies as award-worthy.

The Beauty and the Beast remake is a very okay movie that is hampered by the fact that every single scene of its story has been told better by a 1990′s cartoon.

Like, if you wanted the 90′s cartoon to be a lush CGI spectacle with pacing that’s less good and dialogue that is less good and also some added scenes and subplots that, I dunno, exist I guess, then yeah this is the movie for you I guess.  It’s not bad, but there’s a version of this story that’s better in every way basically so… yeah, there you go I guess.

Two Days Ago...

…I finally watched The Lego Batjokes Batman Movie. About two days before that I watched the new Beauty and the Beast. I literally cannot handle all the gay.

(I couldn’t find the right pic from Lego Batman Movie so here’s fanart, credit sibandit on DeviantArt, according to Google)

WAIT WAIT WAIT

you mean to tell me that all along the movie we’ll have flashback bits showing how all the furniture characters lived when they were humans ??

JUST WHEN I THOUGHT THIS MOVIE COULDN’T BE MORE AWESOME

The Actor “KIM Hyeonmok”, who is very New face, will be acting the main role “Pyeongbumhae” in this film, which mean “Ordinary” in Korean, an very ordinary boy at most things.

Perhaps she had incorrectly rearranged the bottles and jars in the bathroom, or perhaps she’d disturbed their contents in touching them. Either way, Sophie is sweeping the main room when a shriek erupts and the wizard bursts downstairs, clutching fistfuls of his hair. Her eyes widen, for it’s no longer an attractive shade of blonde but rather a metallic grayish-green. Even now it changes before her very eyes, shifting to red, to pastel pink, before finally settling on black-brown.

Sophie! You—You’ve sabotaged me!” shouts the wizard. He tugs at his hair with an expression of utter devastation and cries, “Look at what you’ve done! I’m hideous!

anonymous asked:

hopetaegukkie <3 i was thinking about tae and how i've never seemed to read a post or fic that manages to capture who tae is! unlike jimin, suga, kook, mon, who are so transparent - I never know what Tae hates or loves, only that he absolutely loved his grandma and loves army, and he can get strangely upset at times. I wonder if what your thoughts about this boy is? because I just can't grasp him at all

I’m…so…glad…that…you…noticed. i’ve been waiting on an ask like this because Kim Taehyung is easily, at least in my opinion, easily the most complex and private member of BTS even though you wouldn’t think so. Especially now that Yoongi has lovingly shared such a big part of himself with us (and honestly seems happier for it which is very nice.)

So, Kim Taehyung. Well, firstly, a basic profile as of currently.

Summary/short ver:
Kim Taehyung.

Capricorn sun sign. (and tbqh he really reads like one, even though when he was younger I thought that he didn’t seem very Capricorn, as an adult 100% does.)
Was born in Daegu, lived on a farm with his family.

hobbies & likes:
BTS, ARMY, family, animals. High fashion, jazz and blues, art and photography especially high fashion or people and nature photography, and artsy, romantic films. Fashion in general. He often wears very up to date fashion in SoKo despite the fact that people like to think of him as having a ‘hobo’ style TT. Anything soulful or rich in texture, his favorite music has lots of baritones and soul/warmth. He prefers big animals to small but likes all kinds, and has never stated much physical preference for love interests besides the fact that he wants someone loyal. when asked at fanaccs for other specifics, most of the time he puts down big numbers for weighs and the average height for females(or would be a shorter cis male height in SoKo, because while the fans tend to super target their questions for a female audience, i don’t want to be presumptuous.) He has a preference for sophisticated things. Even as a kid he showed a more refined tastes because he kid picked saxophone to play (when asked what he would do if he wasn’t an idol anymore it would either be to stay on the farm with his family or become a saxophonist.) He loves acting and modeling!!

Full discussion:

Kim Taehyung is a man of refined tastes and despite the fact that you wouldn’t think so, he’s an incredibly private man. As a teenager closer to debut he was a bit more playful, but as he’s matured he’s a lot more closed off. When he lost his grandmother at the end of last year that only became more distinct.

As for what he likes, Taehyung has a very ‘old soul’ approach to things. He’ll most likely pick whatever is more soulful over something mainstream. When they got the chance to have influence over their own solos, Taehyung said he worked hard and much on his, and that it ‘suited his tastes very well’ and he said something very confident about how it was ‘quite nice’. Stigma is a very heavily jazzy song, that suits his warm tones and shows of his range. It’s honestly, a really, really good window into who Taehyung is.

For the record, people think that Taehyung is a goofy guy and tend to brush him off or stereotype him that way but Tae is a LOT more complex than that. And not only is he complex, the man tends to hide those parts of him.

The real truth is, Taehyung IS hard to get a read on. You have to be good at reading people in general, or REALLY love him and pay ALL the attention to him and REALLY absorb every inch he gives us. Because the truth is, Taehyung doesn’t give us that much private things about himself.

On a love and family front, we all know that he’s a family man, a man who loves animals, who believes in true love and soulmates. He wants to have a large family with many kids, and he wants to be the light of his loves life, just like they’ll be for him.

On a work front, we know that this career/life wasn’t the one he would have picked without it finding him, because he wanted to be a farmer. But he found himself becoming a bighit trainee after being asked by the staff who went out of their way to call his parents to ask for permission. This life picked him, but he has what it takes. He works HARD on his voice, his dance, his everything. He said he almost didn’t make it into the final group if it wasn’t thanks to the members (which is why he loves them so much and is so devoted) but every day current day he works, SO, hard. When Minjae called Tae on his Vapp, it wa like 7pm SoKo time and Taehyung said that he was just sitting down to shower and eat for the first time because he had been working and training all day. He works his a$$ off. NEVER forget how UPSET and just, devastated he was, when he couldn’t properly use his voice or sing because he was sick and strained, during AHL when they were doing the training. Because he felt he was letting them down and not showing his full capacity.

On the Hobby and interest front, we know that he likes fashion, whether that’s wearing it, high fashion, fashion photography, etc. and he really loves taking pictures. He loves BEING in pictures and modeling. Photoshoots are one of his favorit things, he said in the NOW’s (i think it was NOW2 that i’m referencing but he’s said it more than once.) that he really likes photoshoots and the reason that he likes doing photoshoots with Namjoon is because Namjoon likes high fashion too.

He also loves jazz/blues music. Lots of times he tries to play it from “Taetae’s jukebox” (otherwise known as his phone) and the fans ask him to turn it off. He won’t outwardly show his discouragement but I’m sure that’s not easy to hear multiple times when he’s trying to share a piece of himself. Sometimes he comes right out and says he won’t turn it, and i’m so glad. Remember when he tried to share that he liked Nude Photography on the fancafe and the fans were calling that erotic/weird so he ended up taking his post down and never talking about it before? Taehyung has very artistic tastes and the fact is, when he shares those tastes, they often get frowned at by fans for being weird or just too artsy.

Jimin VERY recently said that Taehyung is his movie connoisseur who always recommends movies. (including movies like Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, which is a VERY artsy, emotional, beautiful movie.)

TBH guys, I could talk ALL day about Kim Taehyung. He’s a very private man who doesn’t WANT to let a lot of people in, and when he does, things tend not to go his way. But he’s fearless, he’s loving, he’s powerful and elegant, and there’s SO f*cking much to love about him. Taehyung is the most beautiful, amazing puzzle there ever was to solve. He’s like a stained glass window before it’s all put together. If you take the time to pay attention to him, watch him when he isn’t speaking, listen to him when he DOES speak, I promise that he’ll reward you. Every second of ‘people watching’ Kim Taehyung, is such an experience.

Thank you so much for this ask. Truly. From the bottom of my heart.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: do you know what really annoys me about the 2001 direct-to-video film barbie in the nutcracker? so at the end of the film clara finds out that she’s the sugar plum princess which is amazing, then her and the nutcracker who is now revealed to be prince eric dance to a great piece of music while clara is wearing an amazing dress and the scenery around them is transforming back to its original beautiful state and it’s all just so perfect, but it gets even more perfect when clara agrees to stay with prince eric and become his new queen. BUT THEN the mouse king comes along and steals clara’s necklace which transports her back to her home. so already it’s really annoying and you’re upset because you wanted clara and eric to live happily ever after, but matters get even worse when the audience is lead to believe that all that clara experienced in the film with the nutcracker etc was just a dream. so as you can imagine, it’s all quite anger inducing. BUT THEN clara’s aunt comes in and introduces clara to a young man who turns out to be prince eric, both of them look at each other and it’s obvious that all that happened wasn’t a dream after all (especially since eric gives clara back the necklace that the mouse king stole), and it gets even better when clara and eric dance together. so now it’s like “well it didn’t end the way i wanted it to, but they still lived happily ever after and that’s good enough for me” and it’s all just very emotional, beautiful and rewarding. it’s a good way to end a movie. BUT THEN the movies goes back to barbie telling stacey or chelsea or chestnut or cappuccino whatever her name is a story about the nutcracker, and it’s honestly just like… how dare you do that? i’ve my hopes up and crushed so many times while watching this movie and you don’t even have the decency in your soul to end the movie on a good note? you could have ended the movie as clara and eric slow dance into a fade into the credits, but no you just had to remind us all that this was just some story told by barbie so her sister won’t fuck up a few gosh darn diddily damnit moves while dancing to the dance of the sugar plum fairy? get gone
