best movie ever

Why Nerve is amazing

1.) it’s all about the dangers of anonymity on the Internet and how that leads to a feeling of invincibility and a disconnection from the repercussions of your actions

2.) the colors gradually become more neon and striking as the main character becomes more daring.

3.) THE! SOUNDTRACK!

“You must know… surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I’d scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.” —Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice (2005)

Spider-Man: Homecoming (non spoilery)

Alright *cracks knuckles* let’s do one of these things.

This movie was the best adaptation of Peter Parker ever. I think we can all agree on that. He was childish, nerdy, awkward, funny, strong…you know the drill. 

But, it was also the best adaptation for the TONE of Spider-Man. I don’t really know how to explain it, but it just FELT like Spider-Man. It had a lot of “timing comedy,” where comedic stuff would happen at just the right time. The pacing of the movie was also fast (just like Spidey). The dialogue was rapid (just like Spidey). The scenery was colorful (just like…you get it now). It was awesome. Now…let’s get to the bullet points

Why I loved Homecoming:

  • Tom Holland as Peter was perf
  • NED LEEDS!
  • That moment when Peter opens the door to his date’s house and sees that one person 
    • everybody in the theater stopped breathing at that moment 
  • The humor was not forced. It was more like situational and (as I mentioned) timing stuff and it worked really well
  • Flash was not caucasian! I think this is the first adaptation of Flash Thompson where they didn’t make him white and it really changed the stereotypical “White Football Player Bully” trope. 
  • Not only is Flash not white….he’s actually pretty damn smart. 
  • So we got a smart bully…..kinda destroys the whole “only stupid people are bullies” trope, huh?
  • ZENDAYA
  • The costume was pretty damn cool
  • The dynamic between Peter and Tony
  • The dynamic between Peter and Happy
  • I think it became canon that Happy is the babysitter in all those SuperFamily fanfics haha
  • Freaking Chris Evans’ scenes xD Those Captain America bits were perfection
  • Stan Lee cameo
  • Hannibal Buress had like two lines and he fucking owned them! 
  • Donald Glover!!!! OMG!!! He actually plays a certain role that only certain people will understand and if you figure it out you’ll be like “OMG YES! I mean NO! I mean OMG!” It is not a huge role in this movie and probably won’t be for while but it is BIG! If you want to know hit me up and I’ll tell you
  • Those swinging scenes were beautiful cuz of the sceneries
  • Okay you know that joke about how Spidey would be a horrible superhero in the countryside cuz of the lack of buildings??? Yeah. They did a thing in the movie about that haha!
  • Did I mention Zendaya, yet? 
  • One of the things that really hit me was how diverse the school looked. During the hallway scenes, you can see the diversity of the film. It was nice
  • The after credits scene omfg Please don’t miss it
  • There was a Miles Morales reference!!!!!!!!! xP
  • Tony being all “I’m turning into my father” when he’s talking to Peter 
  • Peter trying to be like Tony
  • Just Superfamily in general
  • The movie played on the whole “Young Aunt May” angle. It was great
  • “Porn”
  • They played the Spider-Man jingle for the opening credits
  • also there was a Black Panther trailer
  • Tom Holland just did such a great job. I’m so proud of him. Please support him

Okay now these are just some random experiences I had at the cinema

  • There was a guy dressed as Spider-Man at the cinema (he worked there) and it was awesome. 
  • A woman offered to let me borrow her phone when my sis wanted to take a pic with Spidey. Mine didn’t work, so she took the pics and sent them to me. I thanked her so much lol
  • After the movie, my sis told Spidey she really liked his movie and he said “Yeah? Come again!” and gave her a high five. My sis was all excited that she got a high five from Spidey
  • Toward the end of the movie when Zendaya says “My friends call me MJ,” all the little kids in the theater collectively gasped. Funniest shit
  • There was so much laughter at just the right moments from both kids and adults. It was beautiful. 
  • NOBODY left during the credits. True Marvel Fans
  • There was a line when I got to the theater (an hour early may I add) and there was an even bigger line when I got out of the theater (for the second showing).
  • My sister took her Teddy Bunny and dressed her up as Spidey. Lots of people complimented her Teddy. My sis was so happy.
  • When I was in line, my sister started talking about Miles Morales and the woman in front of us turned and asked “you guys read Miles Morales, too?” I told her that I was a huge fan of his Spidey as well. She said “My kids love him. We are all into him, too.” Now, her husband comes. She tells him, “They like Miles Morales, too.” He gets a huge smile on his face. “Yeah?!” And I say, “Yes, I really like him. I read the comics.” “My wife got me the first 10 issues for my birthday!” he’s really excited by now. We talk a bit more about Miles but then they start letting us in so we go our separate ways. The husband and the kids…..they were black. My sis and I are Hispanic. Miles embodies both that family and mine. Representation matters.

So, yes. Homecoming is a movie worth watching. I loved seeing all these people together fangirling about a character that we grew up with being represented right. And also seeing all these new Spidey fans made me so happy. My sister talked about him the whole ride home…..it was amazing

Men categorize women in one of four ways:

1. Mothers | 2. Virgins | 3. Sluts | 4. Bitches

Of course, none of the above is suitable for the modern business woman. But, you can create your own image by selecting pieces of each archetype that work for you.

1. The wisdom of the mother.
2. The integrity of the virgin.
3. The sexual attractiveness of the slut.
4. The independence of the bitch.

This leaves men confused and unable to pigeonhole you. What they are forced to do instead is… take you seriously.
