and its effortless

serious talk but i grew up thinking that its easy to be kind, its easy to be soft, that it was supposed to be effortless to do the right thing but thats a total lie. being kind, being soft, being gentle and being a good person is the hardest thing you’ll ever have to do. 

it will exhaust you. it will drain you. you will have to learn and make mistakes and fuck up repeatedly. its not effortless. it takes everything you have inside you and then some more.

but its worth it. nothing in life is more important than learning to be kind and good.

Wonder Woman and Sex Appeal

So WW is *supposed* to be inhumanly beautiful.  She’s not human, she’s Amazon. But how do they express this on screen?  In most movies it would be long, panning shots over her body: probably when accidentally being walked in on nude or nearly-nude(note, its always an accident, because then its a man seeing her ‘unaware’ and not her willingly showing off her own sexual prowess).  It would be expressed by the camera lingering on her on her clothes cling to the curves of her body, or licking her lips.


But nope.  In WW, we’re often reminded how stunningly beautiful she is not only by Gal Gadot’s surprising and demanding screen-presence, but by focusing on OTHER people’s reaction.  Its not just about her being SEXY she is RADIANT.  She walks into a room, and people look.  Your eyes are drawn to her - men and women alike.  We see her walk into rooms and people turn their heads.  She looks like a GODDESS - standing there looking stunning because she looks confident and effortless.  Its not just about her striking eyes, high cheekbones, or lithe body.  Its everything.  ITs HER.  And while Gal Gadot is a beautiful woman, that’s some A+ cinematography right here.

ros: mentions off-handedly she wants to go to a nunnery

ben: makes an entire plan to send her to a nunnery

ros: pretends to be in love with ben

ben: “and here i thought you were counting down the hours”

ros: …………someone? actually listened to me?


and listen: HE ALWAYS REMEMBERS WHAT PEOPLE TELL HIM. HE HAS TO SURVIVE WITH HIS UNCLE!

BUT WITH ROS HE DOESNT EVEN REALIZE HE REMEMBERS WHAT SHE SAYS - ITS JUST EFFORTLESS

not a single subtle bone in garry allen’s body. i mean judging by those smiles, iris sitting on his laps is probably his favorite thing ever. I live for unscripted moments like that.

When your favorite TV show airs in the morning. (or if you just really hate school.)
