conversations jensen and Misha have probably had on set they didn’t realise were being recorded:

-character motivation/ scene ideas/ joking about the scene and how dean and cas just need to fuck and that would solve everything tbh
-danneel’s terrible accents (leading into indiarussian by Misha)
-toddlers being weird little shits
-dad drama
-in law drama
-dinosaurs
-if bugs are gross or not
-”who’s would win in a fight cas or [a shark/batman/john cena/a bear/a small child]”
-books they lend each other
-m:“oh my god why are you on your phone pay attention to me.” j five minutes later: “who are you even texting I’m right here “
-repeating stories irl that they’ve already texted to each other when they happened
-arguing about serious shit, but simultaneously laughing about it and afterwards being super affectionate and gross
-arguing about nothing and actually getting kind of pissed at each other “that’s how literally everyone pronounces it”/ “ that doesn’t mean it’s correct” etc
-that Misha should get a dog “I like cats” / “but dogs are better. vicki likes dogs, and maison wants a dog, just get a dog dude”
-things they have that they need to give the other that they keep forgetting (scarf, coffee cup, book, hand-me-down clothes for the kids) and then ofc “I’ll get it when I come over later” / the next day– “oh man I totally forgot to give you [x]” “ahh shoot! it’s okay I can come get it when we’re done”
-jensen telling Misha about his latest shitty reality show he’s been watching “oh my god oh my god and then brittany said like all this shit behind her back it was horrible :D”
-“did you read that script? do you think I should audition? I don’t know if I could pull it off” / “I know you could”
-lube vs spit
-inside jokes and constantly giggling over basically nothing
-lots and lots of whispering that they forget easily gets picked up by the mics– talking shit, flirting, making plans, complaining about having to have makeup cover up a hickey, praise, etc

Here is a Stegosaurus painting from the 1930′s (Charles R. Knight)

And here is The Lost World Stegosaurus (1997)

Here’s a modern scientific reconstruction of Stegosaurus (John Conway 2013)

How is it that TLW has a more modern Stegosaurus than JW?  Thanks for being regressive, Trevorrow.

Besides my obvious nit-picky problems, the character designs in The Good Dinosaur bug the shit out of me aesthetically. 

The movie feels like it wants to be this emotional movie about a harrowing journey, with beautiful realistically rendered scenery, but all the characters look like a bunch of goddamn lazily designed dinosaur chicken nuggets
