basically the best part of the movie

I usually buy the art books of movies I adore, so Spider-Man Homecoming wasn’t going to be any different. This book is my current fave out of all the movie art books I have. It has a fancy slipcase and the one on the back is this

What makes this book good is because when you take it out, it’s a yearbook!! [More pictures under the cut!]

Pitch Perfect Fandom

Dya know what I love about the PP fandom? It’s that the fanfiction has turned so many of the minor characters into major characters. Particularly in the Bechloe fics.

Take ‘Tom’ for example. The dude is in the first movie for 6 seconds at the end of that shower duet, and 3 seconds making out in the back of a scene with Chloe at the aca-initiation night. But he’s actually considered quite a major antagonist in Pitch Perfect fanfiction - particularly Bechloe fanfiction (I see you ‘Experimentation’)

Stacie, who I love in the movies despite really not being in them that much, has become this awesome best-bud-to-Beca in many fics. She’s the out-there girl who tends to drag Beca along to parties or events in their post-Barden years, which often leads to Beca reuniting with/meeting/finding Chloe. In the movies I do believe the only interaction Beca and Stacie ever have is Beca saying “You call it a dude?!” mid-way through PP1, and “Keep it in your pants maybe?” in PP2. Yet in fanfiction she is often written as one of Beca’s closest friends.

And if she’s not written as one of Beca’s best buds then she’s often written in ‘Staubrey’ fics as being a love interest for Aubrey - even though the only real ‘interaction’ the two had in the movies was in PP1 for 12 seconds during Stacie’s audition, 12 seconds when Aubrey used the word ‘penetrate’, 8 seconds in the riff-off, and that blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment lasting 2 seconds when Stacie hisses “Where did he come from?” to Aubrey while they’re stood in the wings waiting to perform with The Bella’s. 

Basically, this fandom is aca-awesome, the fanfiction is aca-awesome, and I bloody love being a part of it. 

Kudos to ALL the fic writers out there, whether you’re brave enough to post your work or not. You guys are all aca-awesome!

Ramble over.

La Vie en Rose

Request: For the Drabble list thing , can you do 5&3 <3333

3. “I may be an idiot, but I’m not stupid.”
5. “You haven’t even touched your food. What’s going on?”

Word Count: 1819

A/N: Reader is 17 here~Starts off 16, but is 17 cause woo time skips. But wow I just realized I slightly changed things a bit. So basically. May doesn’t know Peter is Spiderman. But it also doesn’t take place during the movie. But Peter is 16. So, after the movie, but May doesn’t know. YIKES! (Im really only explaining this like this because I’m splitting this into different parts. The next part will go more into the title).

Summary: the reader grew up with Peter and when the reader’s mom dies, May takes her in.

Warnings: None.

Masterlist

You and Peter grew up together. Kind of. Peter’s aunt May was your mom’s best friend. When Peter’s parents died when he was young he went to live with his Aunt, and May would often invite you and you mom over so Peter would have a friend to play with.

The only thing is, you and your mom moved away when you were 10 and you only saw Peter and May about once a year.

So, when your mom died, you found out she had put May as next of kin, and you were shipped off to Queens to live with Peter and May.

It was odd moving back to the city you had called home for so long. After living in a small town in Maine for six years, it was odd being back in a big city.

Of course it was a difficult transition when your mom died, trying to get used to May and Peter again. May treated you like you were her own daughter, and Peter was so nice to you.

You had had a crush on Peter for as long as you can remember. Probably eight or nine years. It was always something small where it would always sit in the back of your mind, but wouldn’t really hit you unless you and your mom went to visit.

By the time you were 15, you and Peter had exchanged phone numbers when you stayed with them for a week with your mom. You had kept in touch after that. You would text at least once a week, mostly telling each other about your days.

Moving to Queens really wasn’t easy. May tried her best to help you, but Peter was really the one who go through to you.

One night, shortly after you had moved in he had heard you crying in your room. He had let himself in and sat down on your bed with you.

He began to tell you about his adjustment to Queens when he was really little and how hard it was for him to make friends, to get used to staring a new school at such a young age, and get used to May and the city.

“I remember that on my second day here in Queens, May told me that someone was coming to see me, and that they were my age. And a few hours later, you walked through that front door. As soon as you saw me you ran over and shoved two toy cars in my face asking if I wanted to play. I was six, Y/N, but I knew that I had made a friend and I would be okay,”

After he had told you this, he pulled you into a hug and held you for a while. But before you knew it, your lips were on his and you were pulling his shirt off. The next morning when you woke up naked next to Peter, you both agreed that it would be best if nothing like that were to happen again. It would be too complicated given your situation.

After that night you and Peter remained close. One could argue that you were even better friends than you were when you were little. And your crush had grown. Living with him only helped it grow into something more than a crush. You couldn’t help but admire Peter.

May was amazing support to you and helped you adjust to living in an apartment in Queens.

When the new Semester at school began you joined Peter at Midtown High School. When Peter introduced you to Ned, you clicked instantly.

Your Friday nights soon turned into a time when you, Peter, and Ned would hang out. The three of your would study or watch movies or go out and wander the city.

One night, almost a year after you had moved in with May and Peter, you were helping May with dinner.

“I have to say, Y/N, since you’ve moved in, we’ve had go out for take out a lot less,”

You laughed, “well, in your defence, you just never set the timer on the oven and leave the food in for too long,”

“Well, that’s very nice of you to say, but why don’t you go get Peter from his room while I change and then we can eat,” May said, heading towards her bedroom.

You walked over to Peter’s bedroom door and knocked twice.

“Peter?” You asked

Suddenly there was a loud bang at the front door, it swung open and Peter fell through.

“Peter? Oh my god, are you alright?” You said

You rushed over to where Peter had fallen on the floor.

Peter quickly hopped up, held a hand over his face and tried to make a run to his room.

You stood in front of him, not letting him pass you.

“Peter Parker, what’s going on?”

“Nothing,”

“Then take your hand off your face,”

Peter slowly removed his hand from his face, revealing a giant bruise below his left eye.

“Oh my god,” you said

“Please don’t tell May,”

“I’m not going to have to tell her, I think she’ll notice,”

“Can you please just help me cover it up,” Peter begged.

You hesitated for a moment, May had welcomed you into her home and took you in as her own, you didn’t like lying to her.

“Fine,” you agreed.

You allowed Peter to pass you and head into his room. You went into your room and picked up you makeup bag and headed back into the hallway where you ran into May.

“Y/N, did you get Peter?”

“Uh, yes… he’s just - uh he’ll be out in a second. He just needs my help with something,” you said and quickly moved past May and entered Peter’s room.

Peter was sitting on his bed when you walked in.

“So, I have to use makeup to cover that up,”

You pulled Peter’s desk chair close to his bed so you could sit and fix up his face.

“So are you going to tell me what happened?” You asked, rummaging though your makeup bag for your concealer.

Peter remained silent.

“Peter i’m not going to help you unless you explain this to me,”

Peter sighed “Look, I got into a fight,”

“You’re lying,” you said, applying the concealer to Peter’s face.

“Yeah, okay well then if i’m lying you’re an idiot,” Peter said, (knowing that you are extremely smart and not at all an idiot).

“In that case, I may be an idiot, but I’m not stupid. Tell me the truth Peter,”

As Peter went to open his mouth Peter’s bedroom door opened and May walked in.

“Guys it’s dinner,” May paused and looked at what was happening, “Y/N, are you putting makeup on Peter?”

You and Peter exchanged a look.

“No?” You said

May eyed you both suspiciously.

“What’s for dinner?” Peter said, standing up and walking out to the table.

“Y/N and I made a lasagna,” May answered as the two of you followed Peter to the table.

“It was my grandma’s recipe,” you said, taking a seat.

You stared Peter down the entire meal, hoping he would get the message that you weren’t finished with the conversation from earlier.

“Y/N, you haven’t touched your food. What’s going on?” May said

“Nothing, May. Sorry. It’s just been a long day at school and I could really use Peter’s help with my calculus homework,” you lied

“Well, why don’t you eat something and then you two can go study,” May suggested.

After dinner, Peter helped May clean up while you waited in your bedroom for Peter.

Eventually he walked in and closed the door behind him.

“I need answers, Peter. You can’t just walk in here all bruised and ask me to help you hide it from may without an explanation,”

“I wasn’t lying before. I really did get into a fight. Someone tried to steal my backpack and they punched me, and they stole my backpack,”

You were hesitant to believe him.

“You’re really not lying to me?”

“C’mon Y/N, I would never lie to you. You know that,“ Peter said.

“Actually, I clearly remember this one time when we were eight that you lied straight to my face,”

“No, Y/N, please don’t bring up the barbie incident again,”

“Peter, you cut off my barbie’s hair. I will never get over that,”

“How many times do I have to apologize for that? It’s been eight years,”

You shrugged, knowing every time you brought this up you got Peter all worked up.

“Peter let me ask you something,”

“Shoot?”

“Who is she?” You asked.

“What?” Peter said, confused.

“Ive deduced that you must have a girlfriend. You sneak out almost every night, you claim to be at your Stark internship every day after school, but I don’t buy it,”

“I don’t have a girlfriend,”

“Again, I still don’t buy it,”

"Well, what about you, Y/N, do you have a boyfriend? A girlfriend?” Peter questioned.

“Oh yeah, great job turning the tables on me there, Peter. But you know there hasn’t been anyone since Gwen,”

“Shame, you guys were cute together,” Peter said.

You and Peter stayed silent for a while before Peter spoke up again.

“Y/N, remember not long after you moved in with me and May and how I told you about the first time we met and what I remembered,”

You nodded, remembering what else had happened that night.

“I know we agreed that nothing should happen after that night, but I just always thought something would,” Peter admitted.

He sat and stared at you, waiting for you to say something.

“You know what, I think i’m gonna go. All this sneaking out has left me extremely tired,” Peter said.

Peter placed a light kiss to your forehead and got up to leave.

“Are you sure you don’t have a girlfriend?” You said, stopping him at your door.

“I’m actually kind of waiting to see if anything will happen with this one girl,”

Peter gave you a small smile, said goodnight, and closed the door behind him.

Ben Affleck was the best part of Batman V. Superman. Sure, his spine-crushing, evil-murdering rendition of the Caped Crusader wasn’t perfect, but in a movie that featured a Lex Luthor who taunts a U.S. senator with a jar of pee and an extended sequence wherein Wonder Woman basically sits down to watch trailers for three other DC movies, he was fucking Brando. And when the news came out that Affleck would be writing, directing, and starring in his own solo Batman movie, I was reasonably excited. Dude’s a good director, and at worst, it would be two hours of him grimacing and coming thiiiis close to ripping out the throat of any criminal within arm’s length.

And then Affleck revealed that he wouldn’t be directing it. Okay. I can understand being busy and not being able to commit to things. I have a porch covered in dead plants that can attest to that. It was also revealed that Affleck’s script was being rewritten, and that’s okay too. Writing a script is tough. It might have needed some work. But then it was rumored that he wasn’t even keen on being Batman anymore, and while I wasn’t shocked, I definitely wondered how the dude had transitioned from “I want to atone for the sins of my Daredevil performance” to “Please, Warner Bros. Please just let me go.”

And after putting together all of the news stories that have been spawned from the unstable experiment that is the DC Expanded Universe, I realized that it’s not Affleck who’s being flippant on this bat shit.

Thinking again on Captain Underpants’ theme of “Adults don’t always know what’s best/aren’t automatically looking after your best interests” that was kinda a big thing at the time, wasn’t it?

I mean, yes, at the time a lot of kids’ media had the dopey, bumbling adult and the smart kid. A lot of kids media had “kids versus adults.” But most of them either had the adults be dopey and that was it, or took care to show that adults were human and did want what was best for you, even if you didn’t agree. (And that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing either. That’s actually a pretty good moral, and Recess did it quite well - especially in the movie.)

But CU like. Straight-up had horrible teachers/adults in authority. Adults who told creative kids they had no future. Adults who didn’t want anyone to have any kind of fun or freedom to express themselves. Teachers who not only punished kids but fucking relished in it. 
(Basically take the worst parts of Miss Trunchbull and the “I’m smart, you’re dumb; I’m right, you’re wrong” speech from Matilda, and then amplify it by ten.)

And then told their kid readers: “Hey. These adults? Don’t know what they’re talking about. Be creative, do what makes you happy, don’t listen to people who try to grind you down. Sidenote - just because you don’t test well doesn’t mean you’re not brilliant and it doesn’t make you worthless.”
And most media wasn’t going that far, especially for the “problem children.”

jedimaesteryoda  asked:

Regarding Snyder's attempts to make Superman human, I think he should have borrowed from MCU wrt a similar character: Captain America. MCU makes him relatable by keeping an eye on, not Captain America, but Steve Rogers. Snyder should have kept the focus on Clark Kent to make him more relatable rather than his alter ego. Your thoughts?

Agreed. Where Man of Steel really started to go wrong is how it handled Clark’s childhood in Kansas. The prologue on Krypton is easily the best part of the movie; it certainly has issues with storytelling (the codex is a completely unnecessary MacGuffin) and tone (“I WILL FIND HIM!”) but the basic dynamic between Zod and Jor-El, and how it relates to the larger issues at play, comes through clearly and effectively. Similarly, Batman v Superman solidly establishes Batman’s place in this universe early on with a creative perspective-changeup on MoS’ climax. Both movies really go off the rails when the actual plot starts. 

In MoS’ case, handling Clark’s childhood via flashbacks fatally sabotages the movie on several levels. First of all, as Dan Olson noted, the flashbacks don’t actually intersect with Clark’s adult story in any meaningful fashion. The past and present don’t inform each other; there’s no thematic buildup or narrative propulsion, just a series of scenes floating in the narrative ether. Secondly, giving us so little time in Smallville makes it hard to get invested when Snyder starts blowing it up. It really comes off like Clark Kent’s Kansas doesn’t mean anything more to the writer and director than an excuse to indulge in Malickian texture; the punch-to-the-face product placement in that fight doesn’t help either, because given that lack of investment, it ends up feeling like what Supes is defending from Zod’s wrecking crew isn’t his neighbors, but U-Haul and Ihop. 

Most importantly, though, and relevant to your question: both that structural approach to the Kansas portion of Clark’s story and the actual content of that portion makes it very difficult to connect to him as a character. The values he was raised with in MoS, unlike in other media, consist of “don’t help people because they won’t understand you and anyway you don’t have any obligation to use your powers to help people.” This is what you get when you put an Ayn Rand fan in charge of an altruist’s story. Moreover, Clark doesn’t ever really push back against this frankly terrible lesson. We’re never shown why he cares about saving humanity. We’re never shown how he feels about Pa Kent’s values, or indeed Jor-El’s. We’re never given a clear coherent sense of who Clark Kent is, what he wants, what he needs, how these wants and needs are in conflict. He’s just a sad-faced mute stumbling through a story that’s really more about his father figures than him. 

And yes, First Avenger is an appropriate contrast, because that movie makes it crystal clear who Steve Rogers is.

So when MCU Steve throws himself on a grenade, it’s meaningful, because we know who he is and why he’s doing it. When DCEU Clark sacrifices himself to stop Doomsday, it’s not meaningful, because we never got a strong dramatic sense of who he is and why he’s doing it. 

no, the real fucking great part about ken penders is that at some point (in 2000 i think?) he made a comic called “the lost ones.” now, that’s all fine and dandy, but this comic did so badly that it got cancelled after ONE ISSUE. i’m not much of a comic book guy, but i’ll take that as “this was a really fucking bad comic.”

this thing is so unpopular that i can’t even find anything except for 3 panels and the cover. there’s no scans of this thing anywhere. (well, actually, there was a scan on 4chan for some time but the download link expired so: you can’t find the scans anywhere) if i want to read the lost ones for myself, for real, i gotta actually fucking buy it. 

anyway, finding the plot of this thing is near impossible but from what i understand, the protag’s name is keri, and she has the ability to… control electrons (?????? i don’t know how this is supposed to work), and these abilities came up during puberty, so she’s basically a rejected x-men hero. so, naturally, organizations are interested in this and experiment on her. she also has flashbacks to paul tibbets which connects her to the hiroshima bombing…? this thing was cancelled for a fucking reason, man. 

now the absolute best part is that ken penders tried making the lost ones into a movie, and the trailer is hysterical

(i can’t find the full movie anywhere, so i’m assuming it’s cancelled too, just like the original comic!) 

i think he’s been going on about reviving the lost ones for a long ass time, but obviously, he’s not acting on his word. 

so yeah, that’s the best part about ken penders’s entire existence.

thomasdohertyx  asked:

okay but honestly- with how much sexual tension there was between Harry, Gil, & Uma and how much there was between Mal & Harry and then Mal & Uma and then even more with all the others, I'm surprised this movie didn't get a PG-13 rating because those looks they're giving one another are not for kiddos. especially when Harry got up on the table and basically did a male stripper dance for Uma.

lol, they were the best part of the movie imo. I even made a post about imagining if Descendants was pg13

Dark Shadows (2012):

“An imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins, is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection (description from the Imdb page).” This is such a goofy movie. It may look like a very serious movie (like Crimson Peak), but it’s so silly and funny. It starts has a love story, with the main protagonist, Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp), being in a forbidden relationship with Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). Barnabas can’t be in love with her, so he decided to leave her and find someone new for him. Unfortunatly for him, Angelique is a witch so she murdered Barnaba’s new lover, and transformed in into a Vampire. Also, she buried him alive. After a really long time, he awakes and manages to leave the casket to find that his family died of old age, and there’s a new family in his house. Basically, he has to get along with the new owners of the house (who’s also his family), and he has to find a way to get ride of Angelique. It’s a fun movie. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, which I like. The cast is pretty good. Johnny Depp is the best part of the movie, as you can expect. He’s a very goofy vampire. Also, he talks in such a smooth and sexy way. The rest of the cast is pretty good. I really like Eva Green as Angelique Bouchard. She’s a bit over the top as a villain, which fits in this movie. The rest of the cast is decent but a bit forgetfull, because the movie doesn’t focus on them that much. Also, it’s a very pretty movie. I really like movies that has this type of old and fancy look. Overall, I will give this movie a 8 out of 10.

cocoasneezes  asked:

Mommy!! What's your opinion on the dreaded Emoji Movie?

MY CHILD! It looks…………. bad. Very bad. And like…. not funny at all. And I can already see the forced romance between Cyber Punk McDyed Hair and Meh so that makes it even worse. (TJ MILLER YOU WERE IN HTTYD AND BH6 YOU DON’T NEED TO DO THIS). It’s basically a giant Wreck-It Ralph ripoff.

Also holy SHIT the product placement in this movie is absolutely SHAMELESS. Like when Candy Crush popped up, I just gave up. The worst part is the team of talented artists and animators that worked on this have to deal with a… less than sub-par looking creation.

I think the best way to describe it is:

One more thing WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS FRESH NIGHTMARE:

tresity  asked:

A YouTube person is begging me to remove my copyright complaint on the videos of my comic. He's saying my accounts should be removed if Disney files a complaint. He's claiming it's his work because he did the voice over. Non of that is valid, right?

I’m glad you asked, because a lot of “dubbers” use this tactic to bully artists into letting them steal art.

The only thing that belongs to him is his voice. 

HOWEVER, he is not allowed to use YOUR art, YOUR dialogue, or anything else that belongs to YOU without your permission. Use of your work without your permission is strictly forbidden both by the ToS of sites like YouTube, Tumblr, Insta, etc. as well as international Copyright law. 

Basically, he knows he’s in the wrong and he’s trying to blackmail/scare you into not reporting him. If I were you, I would not only file a copyright notice, but I would also include a screencap of your conversation when you make your report, because it notes that not only is he going against ToS, he is willfully, knowingly, and aggressively going against it.

Disney has the rights to their work as well, but they usually allow original fanwork because it’s good for the brand (in other words, big companies don’t make copyright complaints because they don’t want to, not because they can’t). This is a common misconception that art thieves (including dubbers) use to steal art. Don’t let them use it on you.

A lot of dubbers try to claim “fair use” as a defense, but that only applies to them if their video is

a) educational (for example, if it’s a presentation on animation given by a professor, and they use a small clip from a Disney movie as part of a larger presentation)

b) commentary (basically, the way news channels report on things using clips or images)

c) transformative (changed in a way that the original is unrecognizable; for instance - many artists use photos to create texture by running them through filters and overlaying them at low opacity, but by the time they’re done you can’t tell there’s a photo there PERIOD let alone whose photo)

If you have any doubts about dubbers’ rights to your art, a picture is worth a thousand words:

So with the recent-ish rumours of a possible season 3 of Young Justice from Netflix, I thought that I would try to do my part to raise awareness for this amazing show. Young Justice was a cartoon that followed some of the sidekicks of the Justice League, including Robin, Superboy, Kid Flash, Miss Martian, Artemis and Aqualad. When first watching the show, I thought that this was quite a strange line up for what was essentially the Teen Titans, especially since I was so used to the previous 2003-2006 incarnation of the Titans. But, boy, was I mistaken.

So what is Young Justice about exactly? Well, like I said, the cartoon focuses on the sidekicks of superheroes as they form their own Team. Throughout the first season of the show they have to face off against the mysterious Light, who are kept extremely secretive for the majority of the season. Justice League members also make appearances, particularly Batman, Martian Manhunter, Captain Marvel, Black Canary and Red Tornado, who act as the Team’s mentors. While it is always awesome to see the League on screen, they never take too much attention away from the Team.

Another awesome part about the show is how all of the characters themselves are actually handled within the show. As Young Justice takes place on Earth-16, rather than in the mainstream DC universe, the writers were able to incorporate characters from all sorts of eras, such as the Jay Garrick Flash fighting alongside the Barry Allen Flash. We also get to see an incredibly fleshed out line up for the League, with B-list and C-list heroes even making appearances such as Doctor Fate, Icon and Black Lightning. Even some of the lesser known villains make important appearances, most notably the incredibly developed Sportsmaster, a lame comic character turned deep and sinister TV villain. All of these characters work in tandem to create one of the best universes that I have ever seen in a superhero cartoon and really makes you care for this world more than you really should.

The tone in Young Justice is also extremely different to superhero shows in the past and takes on a much darker, serious tone. There are quite a few laughs here and there, mind you, particularly from Kid Flash, but I say this show is serious, it is serious. Even an episode of Teen Titans Go made fun of how dark and brooding some of the characters could be, which was…creepy, to say the least. What’s even crazier, is by the second season, they managed to make the show even darker with insane storylines and subplots and basically cranking the dark and brooding up to 13. It was truly beautiful. While I do complain about how DC is handling their movies at the moment with how dark they seem to be going, with Young Justice, it just works. Perfectly.

The best part of this show though is definitely the chemistry between all of the members of the Team. Even when new members join the team later in the first season, like Zatanna, Red Arrow and Rocket, the Team manages to work extremely well together physically and emotionally, despite them getting pretty angry with each other every now and then *cough* Superboy *cough*. However, the fact that the Team actually does disagree every now and then adds another layer to their dynamic and makes their friendship together feel much more real and helps you to invest much more in their squabbles. On top of this, the relationships and shipping in the show is off the wall insane and so perfect. I don’t want to spoil any of the ships in the show, and you may not even be interested in ships yourself, but I feel that the romance in the show is handled extremely well and pays off massively when the two characters that you want together finally do.

So Netflix, if you ever read this, please renew Young Justice Season 3. Not just for me, but for the fans for who have been clamouring for years to find out what happens after that intense cliff hanger. And if you’re a reader who hasn’t seen the show yet, do yourself a favour and go watch the whole two seasons on Netflix. Not only will you be watching a fantastically made show with stellar characters and storylines, you’ll be telling Netflix that, hey, people are interested in watching more so please make more of this thank you.

Schmidt x Reader oneshot

Request:  Can I have a Schmidt x reader oneshot (from New Girl) where you’re one of Jess’ friends and always hanging around the loft. Schmidt has a crush on you and you start dating?? Thanks in advance if you can do it :) xxx

A/N: Here it is! I apologize for the lateness and I hope you like it!

Jess, your absolute best friend, had invited you over for a girl’s night. And with Jess, that meant pizza, wine, and a classic 80’s movie. Usually she did a pretty good job of scheduling these girl’s nights when the guys weren’t home so you showed up, of course, in your favorite pair of sweat pants, your hair all messy and unkept, and in a comfy sweatshirt. You were ready for a night of relaxtion!

As per loft rule, you didn’t have to knock. You got a free pass because basically you were part of the loft! No one was ever surprised when you walked through the door.

When you showed up at the loft and found that the door was locked, you found it kind of odd. With a disgruntled look on your face, you knocked slowly three times on the door. When Jess opened the door, she wore a frustrated and annoyed look on her face.

Watched Kong: Skull Island Yesterday

I still really love it, but I have quite a few thoughts that I want to get out because I’m on a high right now of awesomeness.

1.) Hank Marlow is probably the best character in any kaiju movie. Admittedly, when I first saw his humor in the second trailer, I thought it was gonna ruin the tone of the movie. But as it turns out, he’s like the best part of the film, and that ending is one of three scenes in kaiju media that brings a tear to my eye. The other two being Godzilla’s death in Destoroyah and the Hawaii scene’s climax in 2014.

2.) James Conrad and Mason Weaver are incredibly weak as main characters, and they’re kinda generic. Tom Hiddleston performs as the utmost basic level of the gruff survivor-type, and Brie Larson, despite abandoning the damsel in distress plot-line, she isn’t very engaging. In fact, if she and San were combined into one individual, it would get rid of two relatively unnecessary characters (speaking of, GIVE JING TIAN MORE LINES GODDAMNIT). Likewise, Corey Hawkins’ character could have just been mixed with Conrad’s, and it may have helped make THAT character more than just filler. At least in the 2014 Godzilla, Ford Brody wasn’t generic, just shallow, but it sorta fit the tone of the story, and he didn’t necessarily need that much in the way of motivation. But in Kong, you have a plethora of unique characters, to the point where the soldiers are far more interesting to watch.

3.) Undeniably, this is a gorgeous film with an amazing use of color. The whole thing is a rainbow stretched out to last two hours. However… some shots are very obvious exceptions. The aurora borealis scene has some poorly composited shots and the Sker Buffalo textures aren’t well rendered, for example.

4.) Considering how amazing and strangely natural the randomly encountered creatures are, as main antagonists, the Skullcrawlers are kinda weak. I love their design, and the way the big one fights is incredibly fun to watch, but their behavior is basically a beta version of Indominus Rex’s. Marlow calls them “crafty bastards”, but I fail to see that trait shine, especially considering how the babies roar constantly (which diminishes the effects of the camera-flashing scene) and the adult can’t decide who its main target is.

5.) Leafwings are pretty cool.

6.) The death scenes, as gruesome as they are, feel underwhelming. Not one death is really fitting. For example, Chapman is just killed in a flash, accompanied with the cliche “blood spraying on the environment inferring a violent death”, and Randa doesn’t have enough time to really develop. And the gut rip is objectively awesome, but they really should have taken full advantage of Kong'a ability to use tools to finish the job. Also, should I mention Victor’s death? Because I still don’t know what to think about that.

7.) The Iwi are miles ahead of Peter Jackson’s interpretation of the natives, so kudos to not screwing that aspect up FOR ONCE.

8.)I like Kong’s reveal, even though it’s a complete 180 of Godzilla’s. It suits the film much better than if they took an approach similar to the latter.

9.) SQUID FIGHT SQUID FIGHT SQUID FIGHT SQUID FIGHT

10.) Ok, so about that Sker Buffalo outside the wall. How long has it been there and why did it take so long to be noticed?

11.) When Kong was done attacking all of those helicopters, how far did some of these choppers split up from one another? I assumed the battlefield was much smaller than the distance by which everybody was split up, but whatever.

12.) The final fight is highly engaging, if fairly flawed, but it isn’t as strong a way to end the film as I would’ve hoped. In all honesty, if the encounter with Packard and that fight scene were swapped, that would have been much more suiting to the story. After all, one of the greater conflicts includes man’s mistreatment of the bizarre environment of Skull Island and Packard’s warmongering frustrations. If that scene was put at the end and was extended a little longer, it could have stood the test of time in terms of greatest kaiju-human interactions.

13.) “It sounds like a bird, but it’s a fucking ant.”

14.) Kong’s somber interaction with the main characters seems a little forced, even though I appreciate the effort. It starts rather abruptly and lasts for quite a while, perhaps longer than it should. In retrospect, it’s kinda silly. Kong just kinda appears from the fog like the ghost of Conrad’s samurai father about to give him ancient shogun wisdom. Not really sure what his original plan was, and also, why did the two feel compelled to just stand there? Again, I draw back to Godzilla, because its version of that moment was much more subtle and quick. It didn’t draw out longer than it had to and was all the more emotional for it. Just brief eye-to-eye contact is enough to tell the same story as a minute and a half of petting Kong’s nose.

15.) THAT AFTER CREDITS SCENE MAKES ME SO HAPPY YOU DON’T EVNE KNOW

Ok I’m done. Carry on.

So I had this super fucking vivid dream last night, like a modern AU fallout 4. I remembered this scene in particular and kinda just started drawing without thinking, after trying to write down what I remembered about the dream, I couldn’t remember who it was that Cory was dragged to the hospital with (I think Piper after she put up a new article, the BPD/BoS)


Also I swore I would never draw a more ‘human/not ghoul’ Hancock, but after this dream-thing, I tried my best at more of a burn victim look to replicate ghoulification sure, not the whole face, but quite a good part of the left side of his body.

 gah it’s not 100% what I had in mind but it’s just a doodle, so whatever. ;n;

More below the cut if you want more info on the au thingy if you want to read about it.
