but this is a really fun movie

Funnily enough, it took this teaser coming out to make me wonder how the Parrs manage to maintain their secret identities while fighting together as a superhero family. I mean, obviously there’s a little of that comic book “just go with it, it’s a fun premise” logic in play, but really. Bob’s coworkers are probably less of a problem, they’re not seeing a lot of his family so if they never made the connection between him and Mr. Incredible they’re probably never going to. Specifically I’m thinking of all Helen’s friends who are going to be watching the news going, “Huh, that Elastigirl lady looks just like that one very petite mom I know who has a gigantic hulking husband…and a teenage daughter with long black hair…and a hyperactive little blonde son…and a baby the exact same age as that baby.”

I hope the sequel does something to acknowledge this problem but until then I’m just going to assume that the Parr’s secret identities are being steadfastly maintained by a bunch of suburban mom-types who have tacitly decided not to give Helen a harder time than she already has.

anonymous asked:

out of your different series you've made (the brutalfoods, televoid, the lightening round) what have you enjoyed most, if you have a favorite

They all have their ups and downs. I think what I have the most fun on consistently, though, are the VHS/movie reviews. I love bad movies.

Lightning Round also had some really fun times, though, and since the videos were shorter they weren’t as stressful to work on.

anonymous asked:

sam dating one of toms bestfriends hc and maybe she's really good friends with harrison and harry too?

- You were Sam and Harry’s age but you were always friends with the bunch of them

- You never really formally met Sam until you were at the Hollands house for a movie night

- Sam’s first thought that you were dating one of the boys, so he tried not to pay much attention to, because you were so charming and he didn’t want to catch feelings

- And then when he heard the boys making fun of you for thinking he was cute

- he was so happy to hear that

-After a couple months you and Sam started dating

- Both of you got teased so much by the boys

- Tom finding it weird that one of his best friends and one of his younger brothers are dating, but once he saw the two of you together he was in complete aw and always made the “ I’ll be the best man at the wedding right?” 

- Harry would tell Tom that he wouldn’t be best man he would be the maid of honor 

-Sam and you laughing because they basically have your guys wedding planned

- Harry always taking cute couple pictures of you and Sam

-Harrison finding new ways to embarrass you and Sam

- Tom just being a straight up div and doing random things to involve himself in yours and Sams relationship

In some ways I relate to Elsa. She has to hide her depression and anxiety in order to be the perfect queen, and even though everyone always puts her on a pedestal, she feels really alone… I could also see myself as Moana, though! Because her family has so many expectations for her and she feels like she needs to live up to them, when all she wants to do is run away and try something new… ah, but I didn’t mean to make this sad! Disney movies are supposed to be fun! Maybe I’m like Sleeping Beauty and Yuuri is the hunk who saved saved me with a kiss~

starshollowisonahellmouth  asked:

I know the Order of the Phoenix movie gets a lot of bad rep, but since I don't remember the movie that well, what did you personally dislike about it? :)

I think I’m really picky because it was my favorite book. It just didn’t capture the spirit of the book to me. OootP to me was opening up the world beyond Harry: St. Mungo’s, the Order, the Ministry, the twins leaving Hogwarts, just a lot of side stuff that really enriched the world. The movie…didn’t do that for me. It just seemed to miss all the stuff that made it fun to me, plus I felt like the characters were pretty flat (whereas in the book it was a great opportunity to do some more in depth stuff, particularly with Ron!)

Someone should come over to my house and make a big spicy dinner (& handmade sushi!) with me, have a couple of drinks and talk about our favorite fucked up crimes, watch a shitty horror movie (like really, really shitty, have you seen Zombie Ass Toilet of the Dead????), then we’ll play a game of yugioh (don’t worry, I’ll teach you! It’s so easy, but I won’t let you win because I’m rude), then we’ll get dressed up for no reason, and learn kpop dances for fun (even if you aren’t into kpop, this is a blast, I swear on my life), and then we can cuddle, and pet my cats til we pass tf out.

Justice League thoughts

First: I am so pleasantly surprised/grateful that the movie is good, fun, exciting and uplifting.

1) I was worried it’d be so overstuffed that the three new heroes and villain wouldn’t be adequately developed. Yet Flash and Cyborg actually do get adequate characterization and background!

  • Ray Fisher IS PERFECT as Cyborg. PERFECT.
  • Ezra Miller is endearing and adorable as Barry, but he’s really acting like Wally West more than Barry in terms of personality. Honestly, that might be for the best. Barry is a little too much of a straight man in a team of straight men. (I mean in terms of humor, not sexual orientation. Some of this JL do not seem to be THAT kind of straight… )
  • Aquaman is intriguing and cool but also the least explored of the team.

2) Wonder Woman and Batman get the most screen time - and the most stuff to do, of course.

  • There is also no question that Wonder Woman is the strongest of the [consistently alive] team members and basically is the only reason they ever accomplish anything against the villain, and her intro sequence is AMAZING.
  • Batman is much more friendly than rageful this time, despite still being Fucking Hardcore. NO MORE BRANDING. He might be a little too “quippy” for my personal Batman tastes - a symptom of Joss Whedon, I suppose.

3) According to an interview with Affleck this week, Whedon lowkey rewrote the script before Zack Snyder even started the initial shooting, so most of his “touch” - the sense of humor, in particular - was already present before well before Whedon took the reins of reshoots. Also, the cast says that the finished film has maybe 10 minutes or less of Whedon reshoots. So this is definitely mostly a Snyder film.

However, knowing that Whedon was already on the writing staff during the Snyder shoot makes it damn near impossible to recognize which things Whedon shot vs which things Snyder shot - because Whedon’s humor and voice were present from day one of shooting.

4) Steppenwolf is explained too fast and never registers as much of a character in his own right. Chadian Hinds is recognizable even behind the CG, though. He certainly IS an imposing presence, but much like Cate Blanchett in the recent Thor flick, he’s just kind of a generic Unstoppable Force. His parademons come off as cooler and more unique than him. Which is not so bad since they are legitimately pretty cool minions.

Okay, now we have to talk about the big spoiler.

Idea for a Superman origin movie

built around two solid points:
1) Lois Lane is the lead character; and
2) The audience dose not know who is playing Superman going into the movie.

So the movie centers around a young Lois, who’s desperately trying to get a job as a reporter at the Daily Planet, despite a hiring freeze as the printed journalism business struggles to keep up, and despite the fact she has no prior journalism experience (at least, not outside of an expensive degree that has yet to start paying for itself). Even though no one at the Planet will even return her calls, she barges in in the middle of a work day, trying to get an interview. She bounces off a lot of people (a number of them tall guys with dark hair and nice eyes who she barely notices) until she tracks down Perry White, who tells her, sarcastically, that he’ll hire her on the spot if she can bring him a properly sourced article revealing the story Metropolis’s new hero, who just yesterday stopped a runaway train with his bare hands. 

She gets to work. Her friends tell her she’s crazy. Her sister bails her out of jail at least once (maybe a montage of times). Her father, General Lane, threatens disownment and/or military arrest. This “menace” broke a muggers arm last week, and is wanted for vigilantism. If she really does find out the identity of this man (who’s been gaining notoriety with every feat) and brings it to a newspaper before the military, her father would have to take action. (This country is his family, after all.)

But the more Lois looks into this ‘super man’, the more she likes what she sees. It’s hard without credentials, but she’s been collecting eye-witness reports for months trying to find the pattern to track; the pattern that everyone’s been looking for. She has dozens of interviews with police, and store owners, and caught criminals, but it’s in the interviews of the regular folk that she finds the pattern:

This man is kind. 

Every headline is about a larger-than-life figure who catches falling statues, wins chases with cars, and stops bullets with his pecs. In the words of the innocent people of Metropolis though, is someone else. Someone who flies broken cars to the shop from the highway during rush hour. Someone who takes a sobbing child from the scene of a bike accident and drops off a smiling one with their parents. Someone who’s been spotted leaving flowers by the headstones of the ones who didn’t make it out of that train crash. Someone who sits in a secluded corner of the park and plays chess with the old woman who’s husband can no longer leave the house. Someone who literally pulled a dog out of a river and a cat from a tree. 

So, to find the Man of Steel, Lois searches for kindness - and she finds it everywhere. She finds all the coats freely shed for someone cold. She finds all the grocery carts paid for by the previous customer. She finds lonely veterans offered a seat at the family table in restaurants. She finds hate symbols painted over with cute cartoons and symbols of love. She finds dozens and dozens of volunteers who help clean up and serve food and rebuild after train crashes and car wrecks and robberies. 

She finds Superman.

And then she finds a man in the park.

He’s not doing much, just sitting on a bench with his head in his hands. The copy of the Daily Planet on the bench next to him speculates on the dangers of super humans, as it has every day for the last two weeks. Some have even suggested that the Man of Steel is an alien, though those theories have only barely broken into mainstream. Whatever this man is worrying over, whatever weight is on his shoulders, seems much heavier than a newspaper, though. Lois hasn’t worried herself with the same issue’s as her prospective employer, either. Thoughts still on the group of teens she’s just passed, each promising to beat up on some boy for their friend, are still fresh on her mind, and she takes the spot next to the stranger on the bench.

He’s not a stranger, though. Lois recognizes him. She doesn’t know his name, but she saw him that day at the Daily Planet months ago, and she’s seen him across the police tape at scenes she’s investigated. He wrote today’s front page article: “Man of Steel, or Menace of Steel?”

He’s politely flustered when she sits down, and she promptly tells him that everything about his article - she’s already read it, of course - is absurd. She doesn’t care who “made him write it”, the entire thing is just plain wrong. She finds herself repeating stories she’s read and re-read at all hours of the morning. Stories of regular people who’d told her how they’d been inspired by Superman. How they’d taken leaps of faith toward recovery and new lives thanks to Superman. Teenagers have chosen to live because of Superman. She quotes sources, and sources of people, including herself, who have said that the city of Metropolis - maybe even the world - was so much better because of Superman.

“Superman?” the reporter asks.

“It’s just something I’ve been calling him. He’s got that big S on his chest, right?”

The reporter laughs. He hasn’t smiled the whole time, only looked at her with wide eyes. His smile is… nice. His glasses are dumb though.

“Yeah,” she admits, “it’s a dumb name.”

“No,” he says. A weight has fallen off his shoulders while she was flipping through her notebooks. He sniffles a bit. Lois had just torn into his article with all the fury she could muster, is he crying about it? No, he’s smiling, still. “I really like it. Have you written all this down?”

Lois Lane writes it all down. Her new friend (who proofread the hell out of it because Lois is driven as hell but can’t spell) Clark Kent turned it in to his boss. The newest headline reads:

The Story of Superman -by Lois Lane


She’s getting paid more than Clark in under a year. He just seems to be so distracted all the time. Maybe she should look into that…
  • “barbie as the princess and the pauper” has the most solid storyline, as well as being the most well-remembered and well-loved of the barbie movies of the 2000s. the characters are engaging, and the romances are surprisingly solid. (even if annelise and erika were clearly gay for each other, their love interests still had likable personalities and good dynamics with the girls.) the music has also held up incredibly well, albeit with a lot of cheese.
  • “barbie as the island princess” has a cliche but entertaining storyline, but has the strongest music overall. the side characters are also remarkably well-done, and it avoids falling into the trap of the boyfriend’s intial fiancee being evil – luciana and ro become friends instead. it also has some genuinely emotional moments.
  • “barbie in the nutcracker” has probably the strongest script overall, as well as tim curry. the cgi is shit nowadays but it was good for the time, and the ballet sequences are still very fun.
  • “barbie in swan lake,” although not as well-remembered, is a solid family movie, with beautiful music and ballet sequences, as well as a really cool villain. its storyline isn’t the best, but it’s a solid 90 minutes of fun.
  • “the barbie diaries” was a huge oddball in the canon, but in my opinion, it’s underrated. yes it’s probably the stupidest and the most predictable, but it has songs written by kesha (no, seriously, look it up), and it’s an admirable attempt at something different.
  • “barbie as rapunzel” ABSOLUTELY INFLUENCED “TANGLED” AND YOU CAN’T CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE. features a surprisingly clever twist at the climax, as well as a creepy villain, and it’s a different take than most rapunzel stories.
  • “barbie and the magic of pegasus” is the first original barbie movie, which warrants applause on its own. the story is fun, and it’s nice to have a love interest with a proper Tragic Backstory
  • “barbie and the diamond castle” features some of the most fun side characters, as well as some pretty good music. should’ve been gay, though.
  • “barbie in the christmas carol” deserves credit just for casting BARBIE as SCROOGE. did not see that coming at ALL.
  • “barbie and the 12 dancing princess” is kind of underappreciated. admittedly it’s not as memorable, but it does a good job adapting a lesser-known fairytale.
  • the fairytopia/mariposa movies are their own thing and need their own post, which i’m not gonna do because i barely remember them. i do remember i really liked the first mariposa movie as a kid, tho.

…these are thoughts i actually dwell on and type out, apparently

When I first auditioned for Stranger Things, I was just living in Chicago. Just looking for a job. Working at a restaurant, doing commercials and bit parts on shows. I honestly would have been happy booking anything. But I remember seeing the concept trailer the Duffer Brothers put together. The boys took these bits and pieces from all the movies that inspired them — Jaws, E.T., The Thing, Firestarter — and they cut them together into a mock trailer for what they wanted the vibe of the show to be. I was like, Oh, man. This would be so, so cool. But as an actor, you audition for something and forget about it, because you figure, Yeah, that was really fun. Probably won’t get it. On to the next one.
