i can’t believe i forgot to post the most important event in all of human history on my actual tumblr!!!! last saturday i finally met a cryptid in the wild

Neruda (2016) Pablo Larraín

Neruda (2016), directed by Pablo Larraín and written by Guillermo Calderón. We see a story located two years after the Second World War, about an inspector, Oscar Peluchonneau, in charge of arrest the writer and Nobel Prize winner of literature Pablo Neruda who was a Communist party senator and was wanted by the use of oratory to denounce the abuses and inequalities of the system, causing government persecution and his subsequent exile to Argentina. Events that actually happened, however the Oscar character is not written in history, something that we get quite clear in a charming way in the movie.

Pablo Larraín manages to present a story based on real facts in a seductive and poetic way that will make you laugh with irony and snort of fascination at the delicacy and beauty of its photography. In the plate of colors predominated the cold colors, the blue and the violets ones, giving a magical and artistic touch that goes hand on hand with the tone used by the protagonist and narrator of the history, Oscar. I have to mention something that I founded quite curious and that I really liked, the way they presented the inspector. I might venture to say that they used some kind of fisheye lens or a fairly wide one. I should also emphasize the sequences used in the conversations between characters which I found quite interesting and innovative. As if it were a book of poetry.

Without much more than praise for this work I only have to recommend this movie to all lovers of art, poetry and ironic humor.

anonymous asked:

movie/tv show rec? not too hetero, something intense. emotional shit? not too long of a series tho, im gonna watch riverdale in 45 mins, so i wanna do something meanwhile

i don’t really watch too emotional things cause i cry so easily (cause dealing with fictional characters’ problems is better than your own, am i right)

but hmmmmm have you watched when we rise? it’s based on actual events, a history of lgbtq+ movement. that was very intense and emotional
there are 8 episodes (~45 minutes) or sometimes you can find 4 episodes (~1h 20 min.) cause they aired 2 episodes on the same day

it was one of the best things i have ever seen in my life

What I would like to see a Mass Effect movie about:

  • Grissom’s exploration of the Charon Relay with an ending that foreshadows the First Contact War.
  • The First Contact War with a focus on Grissom and Anderson (w/ the ”yo mama” jokes scene.)
  • The events leading to the creation of Cerberus (w/ a Saren cameo?)
  • The first three options together in one.
  • The Rachni Wars and the Genophage that followed.
  • A collection of origin stories about some of the crew. Kaidan, Ashley, Jacob, and Vega in the Alliance. Wrex’s merc days. Mordin on Tuchanka for his last mission with the STG. Liara researching the Protheans (hints to the events of ME?) Hell - Jack, Kasumi, Samara, Zaeed, and Thane have enough adventures to make a full movie for each of them.
  • An origin movie about almost anyone other than Shepard.
  • Seriously, just vague hints and background chatter about Shep’s service history events without actually tacking Shep’s name onto anything is fine.
  • Aria.

What I would not like to see a Mass Effect movie about:

  • Shepard.
Regarding time travel,

Wouldn’t the most responsible use of it be going back in time to record the actual history of events? Not change them.
Like go back to 1963 to see if there was another shooter?

Let me explain you a thing about the Marvel Civil War...

‘Cos I’ve been seeing a lot of post from people who have actual lives and don’t spend their every waking moment reading comics worrying about this, and in particular, the characterisation of Tony.

The Civil War is arguably the biggest event in Marvel’s publishing history. The Civil War fucking defined the Marvel Universe as it exists today. I would not be exaggerating to say it was one of the most important events in human history. (Actually I would, I’d be massively exaggerating, but this is the internet, so it’s okay).

The Civil War began with some of the best ideas in comics, and ended with some of the stupidest. It produced some of Marvel’s greatest moments, and also the comic universally considered to be their lowest point ever (though that won’t come into the film, since Spiderman isn’t around. I like Spidey but I’m honestly glad he’s not in Civil War just so we don’t risk another One More Day).

Okay, so why is the Civil War so important? And why am I taking the time to explain you this thing?

It’s because, if we disregard certain elements which I’ll explain below (which the MCU definitely will because they’re stupid and make my brain cry) there isn’t actually a right and wrong side to the Civil War.

First of all, you’ve got to remember that this isn’t the MCU. This is a world with Mutants. In the MCU I’m pretty sure Inhumans are going to take the Mutant role, but they’re still establishing them, so that’s supposition on my part.

So yeah, Mutants. A persecuted minority who serve as an analogue for just about every oppressed minority there is. But also, a species that keeps producing babies with godlike powers. Babies with godlike powers are not good. They level cities when they don’t get their rusks. They’re scary and uncontrolable and generally just really bad. They’re a minority of Mutants of course, most of the them get their powers during puberty. And pretty much any superpower is dangerous when given to an angry hormonal teenager.

So people are scared. You’ve seen the X-Men films, you know how this goes down. Except, in the X-Men films, the evil government types are just trying to oppressed poor adorably little magical Ellen Page. What big meanies.

In the comics, it’s a bit more complex.

People are scared of meta-humans, that’s only natural. There’s a lot of anti-mutant feeling. And then a group of junior Superheroes, called the New Warriors, mostly teenagers, mostly mutants, mostly very inexperienced, hear that the Supervillain Nitro is in Conneticut. They decide to go fight him. This is a stupid thing to do, Nitro’s pretty tough and actually killed one of Marvel’s most powerful heroes, Mar-Vell. But they’re teenagers, and they want to be heroes, so off they go.

It doesn’t go well. The fight happens right outside an elementary school, Nitro gets angry and uses his explodey powers and 612 people are killed, including 60 kids, and all but one of the New Warriors.

Obviously there’s an outcry, and the question being asked over and over is “Why was this allowed to happen? Why wasn’t someone watching these teenagers. Why was is under prepared kids sent to fight instead of, say, Cap? And now it has gone wrong, who do we hold accountable, and how?”

The answer proposed by the government is manditory registration for Superpowered beings. Training would be provided, proper oversight, accountability. All the things Superheroes just don’t have. And those are all good things, and if they’d been in place, maybe the school in Conneticut would still be standing.

On the other hand, it removes the impartiality of Supers, makes them essentially government controlled. It also, obviously, disproportianately affects Mutants,who have enough problems as it is, and people like Magneto start saying is just another piece of anti-mutant legislation and clear discrimination.

Tony argues that Superheroes need training and accountability, Cap argues that they need the freedom to live their lives without constant government surveilance.

You might agree with one or the other, but it’s a complex problem with no clear answer, and neither of them is the bad guy.

And that’s the bits of civil war I think they’ll be keeping for the MCU.

In the comics, Spiderman believes so much in the new laws that he reveals his secret identity. His enemies immediately shoot Aunt May. (He makes a deal with the devil to bring her back, so it’s all okay). Cap is shot, and replaced by Bucky.

The pro-registration side get creepier and creepier, to the point of giving Norman 'Green Goblin’ Osborn control of the superpowered Black Ops team, which is obv a good idea, and slowly become the villains. Then it turns out that they’re all Skrulls, Cap comes back to life, and everyone magically forgets about the war and goes back to killing Green Aliens. The Mutants try and point out that they’re still being oppressed, but no one cares because they’re a minority, and also green aliens to kill. (But it’s okay because Scarlet Witch solves the problem by wiping out 99% of all mutants).

Despite the Aliens though, those themes of accountability vs freedom is something that defines Marvel comics storytelling, and the longterm effects of the Civil War are still being felt throughout the 616.

So that’s why Civil War is important, interesting, and doesn’t mean Tony’s character is going to be ruined.

tl;dr: Tony and Cap are both right and there isn’t really a bad guy in Civil War, except for Nitro and Skrulls.
