Q1: Hobbies or things you’ve been
into to spend your days off? A1: When I have days off, I want to do those so-called ‘ordinary’ things. Such as going to a cafe by myself, meeting up with friends. Having an ordinary daily
life is very important to me. I won’t do anything special just because I’m on my days off. For me, spending my days off while relaxing is more important.
Q2: Tell us your preferences and
tastes in fashion! A2: Rather than getting different
types of clothes, I’m the type that if I like or love something, I’ll use it for a long
time. Since debut, because of my job, I’ve been wearing a lot of expensive
clothes and clothes that I like. But I want to become one that can have their
own style even when wearing simple clothes, so now I just choose simple
clothes. Also, I don’t like to expose so I wear long sleeves even in the summer.
Q3: Your favorite scent? A3: For cologne, I like sweet scents. Depending
on my mood on that day, occasionally I’ll use a bit. But I haven’t finished
using one bottle yet. Since I really like to drink coffee, it makes me feel
calm when I smell the aroma of coffee. To me, coffee is like a substitute of
water, it’s indispensable.
Q4: Any Japanese
film, drama, manga or other works that you like? A4: My all-time favorite manga is ‘Slam
Dunk’! It’s my favorite so I read it over again and again, I’ve read it for
over 100 times. Most of the anime that I’ve watched when I was little, are
From JIN: He’s interested in clothes,
furnitures and miscellaneous goods, but when he’s shopping, he’ll only buy
equipment that’s related to music. As his roommate, only I know about this, it’s my treasured information. ♪
From V: Recently, Suga hyung is really
interested in Japanese. I’ve seen him studying Japanese diligently. Also, I
feel that the things Suga hyung talks about and the atmosphere became more
interesting than before (laughs).
Encountered rap around when I was in primary school and began to get involved in making music. I’m still active and continuing to produce music. For
someone boring like me, the only thing I can do is to make music, it can’t be separated
In the past I would look for answers either 0 or 100. For example, why do some people don’t like me? I worried about
these things and I also showed my emotions on my face. But after I’ve accumulated
a various of experiences, I could understand better about people’s sensitivity
and values. I thought “people could have various of thoughts”, and I began to
think that I want to open every possibility for myself.
It’s a word that describes me (laughs). Since I rarely step forward (voluntarily), I’m discreet, quiet and I like to be
alone. I don’t like to move around and I like to lie down.

Lying Is The Most Fun a Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off (Sebastian Stan x Reader) Pt. 6
A/N: yaaay! chap 6 is finally here and the big moment finally happens you guys! *throws table* i always felt like seb would do some spontaneous stuff like this in this situation! I hope you guys like it! ENJOY! - Delilah
Sebastian:What are you wearing? ;)
You snickered at your phone as you walked through the large building. Since the grand discovery a couple weeks ago, you both have been completely honest with each other. No lies, no secrets, just the absolute truth.
You learned quite a bit about Sebastian; you both were similar in so many ways. You both were devoted pizza lovers. This conversation ended with Sebastian sending you a pizza all the way from Melbourne (where he was filming at the time) and made sure you got you and his’ favorite topping: pineapple and pepperoni. He made sure to tell the pizzeria to place the toppings in a heart shape, which you found absolutely adorable.
Sebastian was also highly obsessed with Sharon Stone, which led to you sending him a body pillow with her body printed on it. He practically imploded when he un-boxed it the day he got it. You made sure he sent you pictures of it for your lock screen.
Also, you found that Sebastian and you loved Star Wars with a burning passion. This led to a giant craze where you both sent each other merchandise of your favorite characters. Your favorite character was Leia Organa -she took absolutely no shit from anyone and was the most important female protagonist in a film full of males. Sebastian loved Finn -he was an unlikely man who was able to save lives despite his harsh upbringing. He also had a huge man crush on him. You both may or may not have spent your free time reading the scripts together for fun.
You were currently leaving your latest internship job. You were tired, but still grateful for the opportunities you were given. You knew to never give up, no matter what life threw at you. You texted Sebastian back a snarky little reply.
Me: khakis and crocs. :)
Sebastian: ugh, i love it. are you wearing a fanny pack, too? that’s such a turn on.
You giggled as you typed out your reply. He was such a little dork and you loved it.
Me: oh yeah. my hair’s in those little leia buns as well. i’m a hot mess.
Sebastian: i think you look lovely. that jacket brings your eye color. :)
You furrowed your eyebrows, your eyes narrowing in suspicion as you peered around the crowd of people around you. There was no way he could see you from your phone, so what was he on about?
Me: how did you know i was wearing a jacket? are you having someone follow me around? >:|
He didn’t reply right away, in fact, your phone stayed silent. You knew Sebastian wouldn’t have someone spy on you, that was a ridiculous thought and all, but you couldn’t help the nagging feeling in your tummy that someone’s eyes were on you.
You picked up your pace, eyeing every single person that walked by you with suspicion. You were almost to the entrance when your phone buzzed again, the notification chime blared loudly from the speakers.
Sebastian: and that skirt! man, your legs are amazing!
Now you were getting a bit annoyed. How on earth did he know you were wearing a skirt? That was impossible, as he’s on the other side of the earth at the moment.
Me: haha. very funny, seb. tell your buddy to stop following me or i’ll use my pepper spray.
You were instantly reminded of your car, which was waiting for you in front of the building. You had put enough money in the meter for an hour and you really needed to get going.
You power walked outside of the building, hugging your purse to your body. Your eyes were on everyone and everything that was in your sight. You were highly paranoid person all together and Sebastian being a little shit wasn’t helping at all.
You’d get him back for this!
You spotted your car, just a few steps away. You let out a sigh of relief as you got closer and closer to your vehicle. You’d give him a call shortly after you got settled in and demand answers. How did he figure out your outfit? Maybe he was just a lucky guesser?
As soon as you made it within a foot of your car, you immediately stopped in your tracks. Your purse you had clutched in your arms, slid from your shoulder fell to the ground with a thud.
“Hey, kiddo,” The man spoke with a sheepish smile. One you had only seen from a computer or phone, never in person until now. He held up a bouquet of roses, along with a pizza box in his other hand.
You covered your mouth with your hand as you stared at a very lively Sebastian, leaning against the side of your car.
Okay, so you’ve seen a few scary movies and enjoyed them, and now you’re looking to expand your horror prowess. Maybe you’ve been reading/listening to a lot of creepypasta, and you feel like you’re ready to take the plunge. Or maybe you just have a feeling that you’d like horror, but have no idea where to start.
I’ve been a huge fan of all things creepy and scary for years. I was just reading an article called, “Horror Gems You Haven’t Seen Yet” and realized that I actually had seen almost every film on the list, so I guess that makes me an expert. So, my new baby horror fans, allow me to introduce you to the genre.
it’s come to my attention that some of y’all tend to confuse one for the other,,, which saddens me bc skam is literally all about time lapses/jumps; it’s one of the things that makes it!!! so special!!
the time jumps in skam are meant to show you exactly that – a time jump from one cut to another. it’s a very, very small cut that could mask as a continuity error, but taken in the context it’s actually presented to us (a time jump) it has a huge impact on the scene if you keep an eye out for one
thank you @stardefiant for being a bae and helping catch some of these
an example of an actualcontinuityerror:
even’s arm in this shot is obviously around emma
but when the shot pans out, even’s arm is back at his side:
we know this is a continuity error because this scene is dialogue-heavy and meant to transition smoothly. no time has actually lapsed between even’s greeting and emma’s excited greeting in return, so there is no reason why his arm shouldn’t have stayed around emma. silly skam editors.
now, here’s a (very obvious) example of a time jump:
he gets a lot of stuff. like, a lot of stuff, including but not limited to:
a cup of peppermint tea in his favorite chipped mug waiting for him when he wakes up, piping hot and extra sweet
an old broken keyboard and a bunch of tools and cool things that make really unique sounds that he can fix it with
a few hours alone in the garden in the back of the house during the early morning, during which he meditates and tinkers with some of the mechanical things he’s been collecting and writes down a few lyrics and chords
a thatching kit
no headaches today for some reason because the universe was in his favor today and because of that he’s clear-headed and alert
russ gets him a really nice flickcomb with a cool handle and some vintage vinyls of the human league and the clash. he also gets him a hat because russ is the hat expert and one of those sensory weighted blankets that are supposed to reduce anxiety because russ has one and 2d always says how much he likes it
noodle gets him an entire outfit, like the fuckin cutest crop top and a shit ton of neon and pastel nail polish colors and a choker and crazy socks, and also gets him heelys that can light up (part of the reason she got him so much stuff is because she also got it for herself because they essentially share a wardrobe at this point. also bc they’re rich and they can do what they want). she gets him the head of one of the zombies at kong too because she’s metal like that and 2d gasps and says “this is WICKED” like he’s a 10 year old on christmas
murdoc tosses a pack of cigarettes at him when he comes downstairs in the morning and grunts “here you go” but then he buys him a drink or two later. that afternoon 2d finds home baked scones in the shape of swans and really nice cologne and a leather jacket in his room. he also gives him a legit collar “because you seemed pretty excited about it on that track” and 2d goes all red
they make him get in the car after lunch and surprise him by driving up to crawley to see his mom and cyborg noodle. his mom pinches his cheek and says that he gets handsomer every year and shows everyone embarrassing baby pictures of stu. cyborg noodle’s body gives him a little salute and shows him her bike all decked-out with streamers on the handles. they all have cake and sing him happy birthday and then murdoc gets too excited and pushes his face into the cake as a joke and starts a food fight with 2d and noodle for a few seconds before russ breaks it up
they take him to the fairgrounds by his old house for a few hours. he eats too much cotton candy and they all go on the ferris wheel together and he and noodle make the ferris wheel car swing back and forth and murdoc looks like he’s gonna be sick. russ wins him a fucking massive stuffed animal at the ring toss and he carries it around on his back.
also random people at the fair come up to him like “omg are you the singer for gorillaz? ?? i LOVE your music” and he’s like haha yeah and then they go “my favorite album of all time has to be the fall” and 2d just chokes and looks like he’s gonna cry
when they get home he helps russ and noodle make dinner (it’s vegetarian and has rice noodles) and the whole band eats it sitting on the couch together as they marathon zombie movies. 2d talks the whole time about films and behind-the-scenes facts, so much that murdoc has to remind him to eat his dinner.
he falls asleep with katsu on his lap and russ and noodle and murdoc cuddled around him and he is warm and safe and loved and happy
So he is your boyfriend and you are dating for 3 years, you’re few years younger than him and you debuted 8 years ago. Your relationship is public and a lot of people ship you.
You both attened MAMA awards and he is worried about you working too hard and shows skinship in public.
Your makeup artist was just finishing your makeup for the red carpet. You were wearing short pink/white dress that matched others’ outfits too. Since you were the leader of your group you had to talk to the members and remind them of some things. You got a call while you were talking to the youngest member. It was Jiyong. You wanted to answer, but you had to remind her to watch how she sits and not to touch her face, because of makeup. You called him back, wondering what he called for since it was the day of the MAMA show and you were nominated for a lot of awards and you were really nervous. “Hey, what’s up?” “Are you nervous?” “Yeah… A bit… Like a lot…” “Don’t worry, I’ll be there with you since our groups will sit at the same table, you are very welcome, Jagiya.” You had no idea you sat with Big Bang at the same table. “What?? Are you serious?? That’s awesome.” You tried to sound as happy as you could, but you had so many thoughts about the performance and what to do if something happens. There were so many ‘ifs’ in your head you sounded really sad and worried and he could tell just by hearing your voice. “You don’t sound very happy. If you’re worried about the performance, don’t. Because I know you’ll be great and your members are really talented so you have nothing to worry about.” You calmed down for a few moments when you heard his sweet words. “Thank you Jagi~ I have to go now, see you there, okay?” You said goodbye and canceled the call. You went to the car with other members, they were all nervous so you cheered them up and told them they were great at rehearsals. You arrived at the Red carpet and someone opened the door for you. You stepped out and saw fans screaming. The other members quickly came out of the car and you walked to the MC where you took pictures and said hello to the fans and viewers on V Live. You shortly said thank you to the fans and every member did some fan service and sent hearts to the fans. That made you forget about all of your concerns. You went in the ceremony hall. It was huge. You saw 5 different stages and so many seats you couldn’t imagine how many fans will come, you sighed and went to change your makeup and dresses in a dressing room. You saw some other dressing rooms- BTS, GOT7 TWICE, EXO, Red Velvet… and the one next to you was Big Bang. It was a little odd because they gave you dressing room right next to 2 boy groups- Big Bang and EXO. Both of them are your favorite groups. You weren’t in a big rush so you made a video diary with the members and recorded some behind the scenes of MAMA, you also visited some of the groups where you had friends and at last, you came to Big Bang dressing room. They were all really happy that you came and Seungri loved filming with you, but he had to stop being on the camera all the time so you turned off the camera. “Let’s take a walk, we came only a few minutes ago and we’re performing the last,” Jiyong suggested “Just don’t do romantic stuff outside, because there are cameras everywhere, okay lovebirds?” Seungri added and Taeyang nodded. He ignored them and you went out of the room. You walked to the other side of the hallway. “Are you okay now” he held your hand. “I’m just… What if we mess up? What if they won’t like us? I don’t even like this outfit, I can’t believe we have to perform in this…” He was really worried because you started talking about how unsure of yourself you are. He couldn’t listen anymore, so he hugged you. “You are worrying way too much. You’ll do fine. I’ll be there for you. You’re not on your diet anymore, right? You have to drink a lot of water, okay? And never ever be insecure about yourself, okay? You’re so perfect, I can’t even imagine more perfect girlfriend than you.” You calmed down and he washed away most of your worries, you smiled and thanked him. You wanted to kiss him, but you remembered there could be someone watching you. You went back and it was time to start the award show. Together your group and Big Bang went to your tables. You saw all of the idols sitting behind you. You saw your friends from other groups and you heard your fans screaming you group name and then when you sat next to Jiyong they started screaming your ship name. You couldn’t help but to smile. It made you really happy the fact your fans were 'shipping’ you together. You were really surprised when they announced Best new female group winner because it was your group. You stood up and accepted the award and thanked the fans and your staff. You enjoyed when other groups performed and danced their choreography and sang with them. Jiyong was very surprised to see you dance so much and sing at the same time. He saw you had an adrenaline rush and stopped you. “If you’re gonna be dancing like that you’ll be tired when you perform so just sit down and watch, okay?” You looked at him and nodded. You sat down and he said something in your ear. “You were really cute tho.” You giggled and a lot of fans noticed that and started screaming even more. You were so happy that your boyfriend was so nice to you. He always cared about you and give you advice. You loved him with all of your heart and you could’ve never imagined being with someone else than him and he thought the same. He was your everything besides your group members. You couldn’t stop thinking about him, so you forgot you were still staring at him. He shook you and you laughed, realizing you were staring at him and he smiled back. Your manager finally came to tell you you’re performing after these 2 performances. You looked at Jiyong and he made a fist saying 'fighting’ which helped you a lot, knowing he supports you. You sent him a kiss and pretended nothing happened when you saw others were watching you.You quickly came to your stage and prepared for your performance. You performed right after Taeyeon. You are a major fan of her and her friend. The time was for you to rock the stage. “Let’s do this shit, girls. We’re the best!” you said to your members. They were very confident when they heard your words and then you all focused on the performance. It was a remix of your most known songs and this year’s hit. The performance was very hard, but you managed to do everything exactly like you practiced. After you finished you were out of breath and could barely walk, because you were also the dancer of the group so when others changed their positions on the other side of the stage you were dancing. Jiyong was very worried about you when he saw how you held your member’s hand while walking back to your table. He stood up when you were here and helped you sit and gave you water. You really had big wish you wouldn’t be wearing a mini skirt right now so you could sit comfortably, but if the fans liked the performance as you heard, then it was totally worth it. “Drink more water.” he kept saying. He saw you are really close to fainting and he was really worried when he had to leave for his performance. “Show them who you are, okay? KINGS OF KPOP FIGHTING~!” you cheered on them and you screamed and danced their whole performance and sang with them. You like Daesung’s parts the most and you fangirled about all of them with other members. They didn’t see you were shaking from tiredness until now when it was too late. You didn’t know what happened, you just opened your eyes and you were in the dressing room with your group, but they had to go back because you were also nominated for the next award. It was a break time so you convinced your staff and manager you were okay and to let you go at least to be there until the end. They agreed but gave you a bottle of water and told you to drink every 10 minutes. You came back the same time as Big Bang and of course, your members made a big deal and told him about you fainting. “WHAT? I TOLD YOU NOT TO DANCE IF YOU CAN’T. OMG JAGI.” He was angry with you for a while, but he talked pouty and cute when he was angry at you. At the end all of the groups came to the stage and waved to the fans, then you talked with some of your friends and at the end, Seungri introduced you to Exo and you talked with them until Jiyong saw you and came to hear what you’re talking about. You said goodbyes and after that he picked you up and carried you to the backstage, making everyone scream, because the famous G-Dragon rarely showed so much skinship in public. He made you cry from laughing so hard and you had to go and fix your make up. Your members came few minutes behind you and told you how they talked with BTS and some other groups. Although you had some problems through the day, at the end of the day you were laying in bed all tired with your boyfriend Jiyong who kept talking about how worried he was. “SHUT UP OR I’LL SHUT YOU UP. I’M TRYING TO SLEEP.” you said aggressively. “TRY ME~” he said back to you, making you kiss him.
You sighed as the ending credits rolled for the movie that you have been watching with your best friend, Barry Allen, for the past 3 hours. The film was Titanic, which was considered as one of the classics and also one of your favorites. No matter how many times you’ve watched it, it still brings tears in your eyes every single time.
“Wow. True love sucks.” you concluded as you sat up straight and placed the bowl of popcorn on the coffee table.
Barry chuckled. “Not all the time.” he said otherwise.
“Really? What makes you think it doesn’t?” you raised an eyebrow. “Though if you start gushing about Iris, then don’t bother.”
“Hey, I don’t gush about Iris.” said Barry, chuckling. “And if I had to gush, it’d be about somebody else.”
You wore a slightly surprised expression, not expecting him to actually take your teasing seriously and answer. Though if you were going to be blunt, what he said almost made you frown if it weren’t for his eyes that were focused on your face, knowing that if he saw one mere twitch or change on your features, he would question about it.
“Patty Spivot then?” you guessed while you head to the kitchen to return the empty bowl, soon getting two cans of beer from the fridge for you and Barry.
“No.” he chuckled again.
Barry muttered a thanks when you handed the can to him, shaking his head regarding about your new guess.
You dramatically gasped as you go back to your seat beside Barry. “Oh, no. Don’t tell me it’s Caitlin?”
Barry almost choked on his beer. “No.” he was shaking his head rapidly. “For my best friend, you sure do suck at knowing things about me.”
You laughed and opened your own can. “Well, I haven’t really been a best friend to you, haven’t I? I mean, that is the reason why I snatched you away from your superhero duties just to hang out. Probably the most selfish thing I’ve done.” you humored.
“How’s your conscience holding up then?” Barry played along.
“It’s holding up just fine.” you shrugged. “But I don’t want to talk about that — what I do want to talk about is who is the lucky girl?”
“And just when I thought I finally changed the topic.” said Barry with a snort, placing his can on the table.
You pursed your lips.
You’d be caught lying if you said you didn’t have feelings for him. It was so cliché, how you were falling for your best friend while he didn’t know that you did. And now that you were aware he had feelings for someone else, it made you uneasy.
“You’re still not answering though.” you sipped from your beer.
Barry looked down at his hands. “Let’s just say she’s probably the most oblivious person in the world. Also, she makes me happy and I don’t think I’ll be who I am today without her.”
“It is Iris West, you big liar.” you forced a laugh to escape your lips.
“It’s not her, I swear.” he finally set his eyes on yours.
“If it’s not her, then who?”
He rolled his eyes. “Y/N, do you really not know or are you just messing with me?” Barry saw your confused expression. “Wait, really? You literally have no idea who I’m talking about?”
With another snort, you answered. “If I did I wouldn’t be asking you, right?”
“You’re unbelievable.” he laughed and reached for his can of beer to take a huge gulp.
“So are you planning on telling me or not?” you impatiently asked.
Barry grinned, “It’s you, idiot.” you noticed how he was beginning to turn red. “It’s always been you.”
You widened your eyes, your own face heating up as well. “Me? Er — are you sure?”
“Yes, I’m sure.” he carefully moved closer to you, watching your expression and hoping you wouldn’t flinch as he places a gentle hand on your cheek. “I-Is that okay?”
“More than okay.”
You couldn’t seem to hold yourself any longer as you abruptly leaned in and kissed him, catching him off guard. Barry wasted no time in pulling you to his lap however, even feverishly responding to the way your lips were moving passionately against his.
"Why didn’t you tell me sooner?“ you pulled away and pressed your mouth on his ear, feeling him lightly shiver under you.
"I was afraid.” he admitted. “But you know what they say, you only live once. So I was really planning on telling you tonight.”
You grinned. “Finally.” you leaned away to properly look at him in the eyes. “You don’t know how long I’ve been waiting for this.”
Barry agreed, touching his forehead with yours. “Likewise, Y/N.”
In that moment, the two of you just held each other as the night dawned deeper, perfectly contented with the way your bodies were close together, knowing that this was only the start of the many surprises that were yet to come with Barry Allen as officially something more than just a best friend of yours.
i hate that the cat in the hat movie has become a meme because when my sister was a toddler she watched that fucking movie every goddamn day. multiple times a day. i don’t think she even liked the cat. she just liked the angry boss who yelled at people all the time. she would scream YOU’RE FIIIIIRRRRRRRRREEEEEED along with the movie, but also sometimes at random. my only respite was when she would alternate with ang lee’s hulk. those were her two favorite films. that was my life, for months. watching this toddler watch those movies, pretending to be whoever was the angriest man on screen. i thought i was free but now she’s a teen and she’s posting goddamn cat in the hat memes on facebook. we’ve come full circle. i will never be free.
random question but do you have a FAVORITE gay-themed movie? and can you recommend some good ones? sorry i know it's a weird question
oh darling i’m a complete film geek so it’s not a weird question at all :)
if i had to pick one favourite then it would definitely be Weekend. it’s so brutally honest, both in the way it’s shot and in it’s directing and acting. and also, when i was watching it for the first time (with headphones on) i had to hold a pillow in front of my face because i felt like i was watching two people through a key hole and i felt like i was intruding on their private life. if a film makes you feel like that then you know it’s good.
as for the recommendation bit i have to say that there are a lot of absolutely terrible LGBTQ films out there, full of clichés and “for-effect” plots. buthere are some “gay themed” films that i would actually recommend watching:
and yes, i’ve intentionally picked films that involves younger people, since i think that speaks to tumblr more. and i would urge you not to be discouraged by the fact that ½ of these are not in english. i can tell you that if you’ve chosen not to watch films in the past just because they’re not in english then you’ve missed out on a glorious slice of life, trust me.
Daisuke Hirakawa at Anime Expo 2017: A quick summary
So Daisuke Hirakawa did make it to Anime Expo after all, and I was glad to attend his panel. Anime Jungle sponsored his trip and appearance here. The retail store sold pictures and Hirarin’s photobook during the Expo, and you could even purchase a ticket to obtain his autograph! Since I’m too old to wake up and line up and at ridiculous early hours for only the CHANCE to get his autograph, I chose not to. I was happy just to attend his panel.
The auditorium was filled to capacity and they did have to eventually cap the line. It took place in smaller room, so I felt quite far away from the stage since the room was more narrow.

Epic Movie (Re)Watch #119 - Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Have I Seen It Before: Yes.
Did I Like It Then: Yes.
Do I Remember It: Yes.
Did I See It In Theaters: No.
1) Starting this comedy/noir film off with what appears to be an animated cartoon from the 40s is a good way of establishing tone for a few reasons. First of all it tells us what kind of toons Roger and company are. The kind that star in short after short after short like Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny, as opposed to say the Care Bears (it was the 80s, so I’m going with that example) who had a TV Show and a movie. It also introduces us to Roger, Baby Herman, the idea of ACME in cartoons, and Maroon studios. Also the film’s excellence in slapstick is there from the get go.
2) But as soon as the cartoon is over, we’re in the “real” world. This film has a slight bit of edge to it that I wildly appreciate. Not like Martin Scorsese edge, but come on. This is a film starring animated characters that has swearing, murder, sexual innuendo galore, and an alcoholic main character. For example in the original version of the film (now edited out): after Baby Herman walks under the skirt of a female employee on set, his finger is extended upward and has some liquid on it. That is VERY adult but will go over the heads of children.
3) According to IMDb:
Joel Silver’s cameo as the director of the Baby Herman cartoon was a prank on Disney chief Michael Eisner by Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg. Eisner and Silver hated each other from their days at Paramount Pictures in the early ‘80s, particularly after the difficulties involved in making 48 Hrs. (1982). Silver shaved off his beard, paid his own expenses, and kept his name out of all initial cast sheets. When Eisner was told, after the movie was complete, who was playing the director - Silver was nearly unrecognizable - he reportedly shrugged and said, “He was pretty good.”
4) Bob Hoskins as Eddie Valiant.
Eddie is a wildly interesting character. He’s a former goofball who has kept his sharp tongue for wiseass remarks and being a pain in the ass, which is always appreciated by me. His conflict is incredibly interesting (more on that later) and he’s just a great character to follow around in this world.
Bob Hoskins is perfect for this role. I’ll go into detail on this later but his interactions with the cartoon characters look easy when they’re not, and Hoskins is able to balance the sourpuss aspect of Eddie’s personality with the wiseass, heartache, alcoholism, and former goofball in a complete package.
According to IMDb:
On the Special Edition DVD, Robert Zemeckis recounts that he had stated in a newspaper interview that Bill Murray was his and producer Steven Spielberg’s original choice for the role of Eddie Valiant, but neither could get in contact with him in time. Bill Murray, in turn, has stated that when he read the interview he was in a public place, but he still screamed his lungs out, because he would have definitely accepted the role.
I think Hoskins can’t be replaced though.
5) This film is more of a noir film than an animated fantasy. You have your archetypes like RK Maroon begin the big money slime, Judge Doom is the shady government official, and Jessica Rabbit it the femme fatale. This is felt in every aspect of the film, from the cinematography right down to Alan Silvestri’s wonderful music.
6) Remember how I said Eddie had a great conflict?
Angelo [bar patron who Eddie flipped out on]: “What’s his problem?”
Dolores [Eddie’s sort-of-girlfriend and bar owner]: “Toon killed his brother.”
Like that is such a strange idea, a murderous toon, and it provides such great conflict for Eddie. A conflict which we see laid out before us when the camera takes the time to look at all the stuff on his and Teddy’s desk. You SEE that Eddie is in pain, and without a flashback you see the guy he used to be when his brother was around. The fun goofball who liked working Toontown and helpings toons out. To go from that to where he is now takes a lot of heartbreak.
7) I love that the password to get into the Ink & Paint Club is, “Walt sent me.”
8) Daffy and Donald Duck.
This is the first (and to date only) time cartoon characters owned by Warner Brothers and Disney have appeared in a film together. Since the film was being made by Disney, WB only allowed to have their characters show up if the major characters had the same amount of screen time as the Disney characters. That’s why Donald/Daffy and later Mickey/Bugs always share the screen together.
As a kid THIS was my favorite part of the film! The crossover aspect. Getting to see characters interact who normally don’t. AND they got the official actors at the time to voice them. Mel Blanc voices all his Looney Tunes characters, Tony Anselmo is Donald, and Wayne Allwine is Mickey Mouse. These aren’t cheap cameos, these are the genuine articles and that’s amazing!
9) There are also some appearances by non-Disney/non-WB characters, such as Betty Boop.
I think the inclusion of Betty is a nice way to pay respect to the early days of studio animation, and her original voice actress was still alive at the time so she got a chance to reprise the character.
10) Jessica Rabbit.
Before anything else, I would just like to point out that Jessica’s proportions are PURPOSEFULLY impossible. I think that this is done to play into the idea of her being a femme fatale, but more so even to critique some of the ridiculous bodies animated female characters have (but that last part may just be wishful thinking on my part). Kathleen Turner unfortunately does not get credit for her voiceover work as Jessica, which is a shame because she gives the character so much of her heart and intrigue. When she’s just the femme fatale Jessica’s a bit of a stereotype but by the end of the film she becomes truly interesting to me because she doesn’t just fill that role. There’s also a fan theory about Jessica I’m totally onboard with, but more on that later.
11) Robert Zemeckis’ films are marked for their incredible special effects, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit is no exception. Ask yourself: every time an animated character opens a door, or moves a desk, or splashes water, or bumps into a lamp, or (in the case of Jessica) pulls Eddie close to them by his tie and then lets him go, how did they do that on set? Because they had to! CGI is not a factor in this film. The animation is done by drawing over the film that was shot in the traditional fashion, but everything else had to be done practically on set. It’s so subtle and so natural that I marvel at it every time.
She’s in love with a rabbit because he makes her laugh.
She uses her body to get things she wants from people, but outside of that doesn’t she interest in anybody.
Her line, “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way.”
Her line, “You don’t know how hard it is being a woman looking the way I do.”
The only thing that really contradicts the theory is that later in the movie Eddie says to Jessica that Roger is a better lover than a driver, to which she replies, “You better believe it buster.” But I can easily see that as her defending his loving husband side instead of any sexual prowess.
13) Another thing that supports the asexual Jessica theme is that instead of her doing anything sexual with Marvin Acme, she plays Patty Cake with him. Like literally, patty cake.
(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)
That is a joke I did not understand as a child.
14) I haven’t talked too much about Roger’s voice actor yet, Charles Fleischer.
During filming, Charles Fleischer delivered Roger Rabbit’s lines off camera in full Roger costume including rabbit ears, yellow gloves and orange cover-alls. During breaks when he was in costume, other staff at the studios would see him and make comments about the poor caliber of the effects in the “rabbit movie”.
Fleischer’s voice IS Roger in so many ways. All he can do to deliver Roger’s heart is speak, and Fleischer’s performance in this film is not to be underwritten because it is amazing. It is full with such life, such heart, and a surprising amount of honesty. It works brilliantly.
15) You have to keep your eyes open for the little innuendos in this film. For example, when Eddie meets Jessica at the crime scene he quickly peeks down at her boobs. This is the first time I’ve ever noticed that and I’ve seen this film a lot.
16) Christopher Lloyd as Judge Doom.
Director Robert Zemeckis had worked with Lloyd on their most iconic film Back to the Future (where Lloyd played Doc Brown), and now Lloyd gets to show off his villainous side. He is wonderfully and gleefully evil, showing no remorse and has a cartoon like quality which makes the bad guy work wonderfully in the role. He’s just threatening enough but also just funny enough. And Lloyd never phones it in once. It’s a fantastic performance through and through.
16.5) Can we talk about how this judge just murdered a cartoon shoe for no other reason than to show that he could and no one stopped him. Like, is the shoe technically a prop and so it doesn’t count as murder? Because that thing seems more alive than a prop!
17) So I talked about Roger’s voice actor but not much about Roger as a character yet.
Roger is a pure cartoon character, and I mean that in a sort of literal sense. He’s not tainted by greed or hatred, he is pure joy and humor. A bit of a dunce but he trusts people and WANTS to see the best in them. His entire purpose in life is to make people life and that feeds every decision he makes. It’s a wonderful cartoon counterpart to Hoskins as Eddie.
18) Hoskins’ interactions with Roger is where he shines. Because remember, Hoskins was not on set with Rogers. He was looking at an empty space which would be drawn in latter. But when you watch the film he’s never looking through the space. He’s miming it excellently, he is looking AT an animated character who isn’t even there yet. It’s amazing and the key reason he excels in the role.
19) I never caught this line before.
Roger [asking Eddie for help]: “You know there’s no justice for toons anymore.”
So toons are sort of a disenfranchised minority. That’s an interesting concept. If there’s a sequel maybe they’ll play with it.
20) According to IMDb:
When Eddie takes Roger Rabbit into the back room at the bar where Dolores works to cut apart the hand-cuffs, the lamp from ceiling is bumped and swinging. Lots of extra work was needed to make the shadows match between the actual room shots and the animation. Today, “Bump the Lamp” is a term used by many Disney employees to refer to going that extra mile on an effect just to make it a little more special, even though most audience members will never notice it.
Nothing sums up Roger more than the fact that he can only get out of those handcuffs when it’s funny. It feeds into how Roger entertains all the guys at the tavern because they’re down on their luck, even though they could turn him over to Doom for a ton of cash (but they don’t). He believes in the power of laughter.
Judge Doom [upon observing the record on the record player]: “‘The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down’. Quite a looney selection for a bunch of drunken reprobates.”
“The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down” is the theme to the Looney Tunes shorts.
23) The rest of the bar scene is filled with so many great cartoon gags. The fact that Judge Doom is able to lure Roger out by having him respond to, “Shave and a haircut,” is great. But a subtler reference is how Eddie gets Roger to drink the alcohol and loose control (thereby freeing himself from Doom). They go back and forth where Eddie wants Roger to drink the drink but Roger doesn’t want it, but when Eddie says Roger DOESN’T want the drink Roger says he wants it just to continue the conflict. Sound familiar?
24) Benny the cab is another fun original character added to the film, and he’s the same voice over actor as Roger!
25) I find this hysterical.
Benny [right before they’re going to hit a car]: “Pull the lever!”
Eddie: “Which one?”
Roger: “Which one?”
Benny: “‘WHICH ONE?’!?”
26) I am so ashamed of myself that I never caught the Back to the Future reference this film makes! Benny is driving down an alleyway and the evil weasels are driving straight towards him, and one of the weasels declares, “I’m gonna ram him!” Well in Back to the Future (also directed by Robert Zemeckis) Biff Tannen is about do the same thing to Marty McFly and says the EXACT same line as we get the EXACT same shot of his car!
I love that.
27) Me too Roger, me too.
Roger [expecting another cartoon to play in the movie theater but it’s a news reel]: “I hate the news.”
28) When we were introduced to Roger in the opening cartoon, I was trying to dissect what made him a unique cartoon character. Like Donald has his temper tantrums, Bugs Bunny is a wise guy, and Roger I’ve discovered likes to go on tangents. Like someone will tell him to do something and he’ll talk for five minutes about how well he’ll do it even when no one is around to listen. I like that.
29) The animated bullets Eddie uses in the gun given to him by Yosemite Sam are very much in the style of Chuck Jones and I can appreciate that.
30) It’s pretty fun watching for all the animated characters the filmmakers inserted into Toontown.
31) Droopy Dog is another cartoon character who shows up despite not being owned by Disney or WB. This meant he got to show up again later in an animated Roger Rabbit cartoon.
32) When Eddie is in a Toontown bathroom there’s writing on the wall that says, “For a Good Time Call Alyson ‘Wonderland’,” but then there’s no phone number. The theatrical release DID have a phone number but it was Michael Eisner’s home phone (I think) so it was edited out for the home video release.
33) What could possibly top Donald Duck & Daffy Duck dueling pianos?
I love everything about this. But it also gets to another agreement between WB & Disney: Disney did not want any of their characters doing anything to harm Eddie, so that’s why when he gets the “spare” from Mickey & Bugs (it’s a spare tire but he thought it was a parachute) it is BUGS who gives it to him!
Honestly it’d be awesome if Disney and WB could make more crossover cartoons. That would be pretty awesome.
34) File this one under jokes I didn’t get as a kid:
35) So Judge Doom’s end goal, his whole villainous plan, is to construct…a freeway? God, if it weren’t for the twist coming up that would’ve been so stupid.
36) Eddie’s comedy routine is great. It shows Bob Hoskins’ skill at slapstick and goofball and is just a joy to watch. Also we get this fun line:
Eddie: I’m through with taking falls / And bouncing off the walls / Without that gun, I’d have some fun / I’d kick you in the…
[bottle falls on his head]
Head Weasel: Nose? That don’t rhyme with “walls.”
Eddie: No, but this does. [kicks Head Weasel in the balls, propelling him into a vat of Dip]
37) Doom is a toon!
This is a nice twist in the film that you can totally see was setup if you’re looking for it. Christopher Lloyd is able to play Doom with an even bigger sense of cartoony evil, and it means his end goal of a freeway isn’t so stupid after all.
38) The train that hits the dip machine at the end has a bunch of window. If you go through it frame by frame, each window depicts someone being murdered. Fun fun fun.
39) According to IMDb:
The opening track on the Sting album “…Nothing Like the Sun”, the song “The Lazarus Heart” was originally written as the movie’s musical finale, at an early stage of the movie’s production when the book’s tragic ending, where Roger is killed in the crossfire during the final duel, was still in the script. When the studio ordered its default ending to be used at the film’s end, in which Roger is alive at the end of the duel, however, the song was deleted from the script and ended up on Sting’s album instead.
40) I like that the film ends not only with the classic, “That’s All Folks,” but also Tinkerbell to let us know this was special.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit is awesome. It’s fun, funny, gives us interesting characters, has effects which stand the test of time even 29 years later, and is just a wonderful ride. Hoskins’ performance and the animation are the true standouts here, but that is not to discredit any of the other amazing aspects of the film. A true joy to watch all the way through.
My bullet journal spread for the week before spring break! Leaving for Tokyo tomorrow with my boyfriend :) I got a Fujifilm instax for the occasion and I can’t wait to document all the amazing things we see. (Too bad films are so expensive..)
also Lost in Translation is one of my favorite movies of all time and we’re going to the bar they shot scenes at!!
