and the movie was really good as well

ksclaw  asked:

I like to think more, that Astrid *didn't* fall for Hiccup in just one day. I figure she saw some good qualities in him, but with all the negativity going around too in the first movie, it's not something you focus on a lot.

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I like to think that as well. I mean, its another thing I’ve written about that I can’t really search atm because I’m in a social situation (#Hiccstrid talk might have it?), but working some reasonability into Astrid’s very obvious writer-flubbed ‘return affection’ is just a burden all Astrid-fans must bear.

Gift of the Night Fury did us all a HUGE favor.

The first movie screwed Astrid’s character, but it was just barely salvageable. GotNF assured us that both she and Hiccup were capable of a healthy relationship, despite their tropey-shotgun situation. HTTYD2 straight up confirmed that they were healthy and happy. Like… thank the gods for GotNF and HTTYD2

RTTE went backwards, got weird, kinda “restarted” them and tried to ‘ignore’ what the movies did but, sorry kids, the movies happened. We fell in love with the movies. Don’t ignore the movies. Work with them, not around them. Please.

You know how I sometimes talk about movies being really good even though they have really bad political messages? “War for the Planet of the Apes” is the opposite of that. It’s not nearly as good as it’s predecessor but is a very well-done, damn scathing condemnation of humanism (in the postmodernist sense of the term)

So we saw Valerian this week. And it was a disappointment.

The visuals were gorgeous, though, that’s about the one thing they got right. It looked fabulous. From the multi-layered virtual marketplace to the titular City itself, to the variety of interesting aliens… It was all really, really good. Not only where the special effects beautiful, it was even pretty recognisable from the comics.

But. Well. The rest?

karnilla74  asked:

*sees your post about Ready Player One* And what is it that you hate most about movies my good sir?

Post modernism can be a force for good, but rarely is. More specifically though, I should say intertextuality. Post modernism has become little more than a movement to feed the internet blog machine. Films that are made specifically for 140 character observation, youtube videos with red circles on the thumbnail, etc.

They rarely stand up beyond ‘I know what that is!’, whether that be in genre observations or simple references. It’s why I really dislike Cabin in the Woods, Kill Bill, Godzilla: Final Wars, etc, etc. It can be done right. Tarantino somemtimes does it well (Jackie Brown is my favourite movie of the 90s by a long shot) but it’s usually incredibly lazy.

anonymous asked:

¡Hola Noelia! Just stepping by to thank you for sharing your gift, I really love the way you write. And I am so excited about your new AU. I cant wait for Friday! I was wondering if you had recommandations for good spanish movies ? Thank you and have a lovely day!

Hi!! 

Thank you so so much for taking the time to send this! I’m so happy you like my writings :D I’m so so excited for the AU too, I really hope you like it!!!

About the spanish movies. I have to admit that I’m not really into spanish films, especially romantic ones because they tend to be too…well, sexual with no plot at all so yeah…BUT I do like lots of spanish thrillers. 

I’ve made you a list with the ones I’ve watched or the ones I haven’t watched but people say that are really good


Thrillers (that I’ve seen)

El cuerpo” This is probably my favorite spanish thriller ever.

El guardián invisible”  This one is very new, I actually watched it last week and I really liked it. And they’re supposed to make a second part

El orfanato This is actually more like an horror movie but it’s also pretty entertaining

Tesis” This is kind of old (well, if you consider me old ‘cause it’s from the year I was born haha) but it’s really good too

El desconocido” This at least will make you be on edge ‘cause it’s a thrilling movie


Thrillers (that I haven’t seen but I intend to watch it or people think they’re really good)

Celda 211 This movie is super praised here in Spain but I haven’t watched it yet

La isla mínima” Another super praised movie that I’m looking forward to watch

Tarde para la ira” Once again another movie people seem to like a lot


Then, “Un monstruo viene a verme” (A monster calls) and “The impossible are Spanish movies too even if their actors aren’t.


Romantic/romcom movies

El club de los incomprendidos” This is basically the only movie I’d truly recommend you, the one I’ve truly liked. In fact, I made a gifset about it yesterday

3 metros sobre el cielo” Probably the most praised spanish romantic movie of the last years. It’s based on an italian book and the main actor is like the most praised actor among teenage girls. I used to love this movie when I was like 13 or 14 but when you grow up you kind of realize that the relationship..well, it wasn’t the most healthy relationship ever. But I guess it’s entertaining and if you like bad boys on a motorcycle, this is your movie. It has a second part called “Tengo ganas de ti” but I definitely don’t like that one. 

Palmeras en la nieve” Again, a movie by the actor I told you about before. If I’m being honest I didn’t want to watch this movie in the first place but I was kind of forced by my friends and I liked it more than I expected even if still it isn’t one of my favorite movies. It’s pretty long and kind of slow.

Perdona si te llamo amor This one is also based on an italian book by the same author as 3 metros sobre el cielo. There’s an italian movie too and if I’m honest I remember more of the italian one than the spanish one.

Solo química This is such a lighthearted entertaining movie. It may not have the best quality but again, it’s pretty entertaining.

8 apellidos vascos This is THE spanish comedy of these last years. But to be honest I don’t know if people outside Spain can understand their humor because it’s mainly based in the differences between regions of Spain.


So basically, when it comes to Spanish movies, thrillers are waaaay better than romcoms

reasons to watch sherlock holmes game of shadows

-it’s disconnected from the first movie so you don’t have to watch the first one

-jude law confirmed that sherlock and john are in a romantic relationship

-sherlock and john wear each other’s clothes a few times

-moriarty lit sherlock’s pipe while it was in his mouth

-mycroft calls sherlock ‘sherly’

-sherlock’s in drag for the first ten minuted of the film

-moriarty sings opera

-good cinematography

-Reichenbach falls was an actual waterfall

-sherlock and john slow danced

-no actually they did, after the fact sherlock was like “wHO TAUGhT yOU TO DAnCe?” and john was like “you did” 

-Moriarty low key wrapped a blanket around Sherlock and I thought it was John just because I couldn’t see his face so kudos to this movie to just letting me assume that John would slowly wrap a blanket around Sherlock and having it make pretty decent sense

-the hand on hand fight scenes are lit

-the whole reichenbach fall scene was handled really well and it was very wrath of the lamb so

-jude law is a really really good actor

-mycroft holds an entire conversation with mary watson while being completely naked

-after he “dies” sherlock breaks into john’s house and blends into his chair, effectively disguising himself so he can drop hints that he’s not dead

-anyways just watch it it’s worth it

However, walking in to the main room, they saw you on the couch with your phone in hand, looking bored. “Y/N?” Your dad, Tony called.

Spiderman Homecoming is like getting your first really good glass of cold water on a hot day

Its cool, its refreshing, it might feel super intense during but after you’re energized and feeling really good

And someone might ask, whats so special about this water? You’ve had water before, this isnt new

But then its like well yes i did have water before but it was lukewarm and although it satisfied me because it was all i had, I didnt even KNOW water could be as cool as this fresh cold glass!

The metaphor has gotten away from me but spiderman homecoming is my favorite spiderman movie and you should really go see it

Descendants 2

Descendants 2 had a lot of strong points but what this post is going to focus on is the character development in all of the characters.

Mal -

Obviously this movie focused a lot on Mal. She has grown a lot from the first movie but not in a healthy way. She developed some bad habits (spelling things and people) and developed some self image issues. This is a vast difference from our defiant and confident Mal from the first movie. While I don’t like the softer Mal that was shown, even closer to the end of the movie, I like that they explored these identity issues. By the end of the movie Mal has reconnected with her roots, her group and what made her want to change in the first place. I think it leaves us with a strong Mal with more room to grow in the right direction.

Evie -

THIS IS MY GIRL! Gonna be honest, I disliked her in the first movie cause she was a ditz but my girl has come a lonngggg way. Evie grew from a superficial girl into an incredibly smart, talented and confident lady. She has a booming design business and doesn’t take crap from anyone, and right beside her for these changes was her supportive boyfriend Doug. I love the dynamic they have because they are equal to each other, she is the strong one but he will still defend her to princes, he manages her business finances and supports her dreams. BUT she is not a dainty princess and he know he isn’t her “prince” but he is her knight. I will defend this ship with. My. Life. Also, she has a big heart and is fighting for the kids that she grew up with. She is going to be a great advocate for the isle.

Jay -

Jay came a long way from his rule breaking enthusiastic lifestyle. He even obeys the smallest (and more sexist) of rules. We also saw that he became less aggressive than before. It was curious to see him as a responsible captain, and it was very fitting. Through out the rest of the movie we got to see him step up as a leader when Mal was lacking or when something needed to be said. Like when everyone was arguing he calmed them down and when Mal and Evie were chatting about her hair, he took initiative to bring them together. Jay is a born leader and is doing the one thing his father, jafar, could not. Being successful and compassionate in a leadership position. In the end when he forfeits his title as captain to Lonnie(?) so she can join the team that is him doing what is best for the team. She is strong and they needed her. He sacrificed his title for the greater good and I hope that doesn’t go unnoticed.

Carlos -

Our shy boy came a long way as well. Carlos is a more outspoken and confident person. I don’t think he lacked confidence in the first movie but I believe he was more introverted, now we see a more open Carlos who stands his ground. For example, kicking Chad out of his room repeatedly. He is dismissing a prince and gives 0 cares. We also have a slight mention of how he programmed his 3D printer to have really cool hacks and such which references his special abilities with computers. Jay can be physical, Evie can be smart, Mal can be sly and Carlos can hack. This is important. Finally we see our boy finally ask Jane out. Tbh, I didn’t see it. BUT I am not against it. The little dorks make each other happy and they make each other stronger, for Carlos he has someone to protect and for Jane she has someone who makes her feel beautiful which is not to be under-estimated.

Jane -

Jane grew in a few notable ways. She became a more involved and outspoken person than the shy, squeaky girl from the first movie. Now she is coordinating big projects and making sure the schedule is kept to. BUT she is still insecure about herself and you can tell, even the way she thought Carlos wanted to go to the party as friends until he spelled it out for her is a sign of the insecurity. Carlos makes her feel beautiful and while that isn’t the best place to get a confidence boost it is still a wonderful development for a young girls self esteem to have someone like that.

Duke -

well, he/she learned English so that is pretty impressive.

Ben -

Ben was a goodie two-shoes in the first movie. While he developed a wicked streak in the second one, he NEVER abandoned his big heart, which is what truly makes him King Ben. He was trying to tackle the life struggles of ruling a kingdom, dealing with an engagement, helping the project areas and maintaining his grades. We know he had to quit his different sports teams because he didn’t have time, the time he spent with Mal dwindled to near nothing and we know he was overwhelmed. He never complained though. Ben is a strong character who is taking care of business and while he might not be the first to throw a punch he is powerful with words before fists, and he doesn’t let his girlfriend fight all his battles for him. In the end when he still trying to seek peace, preventing what could have been a catastrophic battle, he was doing his duty as a king. He put his life on the line. His biggest development in this movie was seeing the other side of things and understanding just how abused these kids were. It is one thing to hear about it and think you know, but he never really knew.  And Uma abusing his kindness and spelling him didn’t scare him away from continuing to seek justice for these kids. Ben is a good leader.

Lonnie -

In the first movie we never really got to explore her character. We saw that she wasn’t afraid of our lil’ villains and that she was still compassionate towards them but that was it. In this movie she is introduced as a threat. She is powerful and smart just like her mother, and she may be a love interest for Jay which is a perfect math. Talk about power couple, am I right?! I look forward to seeing more of her.

NEW CHARACTERS -

Uma -

You can see the results of abuse and bullying in her personality. All she is looking for is validation. This is the entire point of “Say my name”, she wants to be acknowledged. Her dwarf rats don’t really obey her, they still challenge her constantly and call her “Shrimpy”. While she has issues, there is room for change. I really hope Disney takes the opportunity to properly show kids/people how to interact with someone who comes from that abusive background.

Harry Hook -

Dang.. Uh, not gonna lie, I am so weak to this little out law. I was practically drooling over him, and when he tickled Ben my heart skipped a beat. I could ship that, I wont cause I will be lynched, but I could. I could see him being a bigger problem in the future. He has more of a cutthroat attitude than Uma and it is clear that him and Jay have bad blood. I hope we see much more of that delectable pirate. Gil - I bet you are one that gets to leave the isle. You don’t seem inherently bad, just kinda a dunce. Definitely room for improvement.

i cant believe the lego batman movie cured my depression

Reasons why Barbie as The Princess and the Pauper is a  seriously underappreciated animated movie:

–both the princess and the pauper are in situations that teach self-sacrifice for the good of others

–the plot is complex and has multiple angles that all work together really well

–the glittery, feminine blonde princess is a science nerd

–the princess and the pauper are instant BFFs

–the songs are cute and catchy, but are also important to the storyline

–the love stories are realistic; the princess is in love with her best friend/tutor who she’s known for years, and the pauper falls in love with the king from a neighboring country because of their shared interests and beliefs

–the villain is a flamboyant and obnoxious character who is so hilarious all by himself that you will honestly laugh out loud more than once

–there’s a street cat that barks

–the street cat that barks falls in love with the dainty, sassy feline from the castle

–the princess and the pauper never go anywhere without their pets, and the pets return the favor by helping them whenever they need it

–did I mention the songs?

–the villain’s henchmen are named Nick and Nack

–the king (the pauper’s love interest) likes disguises for no apparent reason

–the tutor (the princess’ love interest) saves the day, like, three times without expecting a reward 

–both the king and the tutor become bros in a single bonding moment as they simultaneously chase down the villain that tried to hurt their women

–all the main characters are interesting

–not only does the king refuse to believe the pauper is anything but good despite the evidence that she’s a criminal, but he also patiently waits for her for months while she’s living her dream of traveling the world, and then takes her back the moment she shows up at his front door because he’s faithful to her

–the princess breaks royal tradition by marrying the tutor, but also finds a way to secure the wealth of her kingdom first so that her people will be happy

–there’s a double wedding

–the pauper wears a choker with her wedding dress at the double wedding

–literally everything is girly; even the castle is pink

–the overall point of the whole movie is that you are special and beautiful, and that as long as you stay positive and support each other, everyone will get their happy ending

BONUS:
there are specially-animated outtakes during the credits
