Anyway that Melissa Mcarthy movie “spy” about her being a secret agent is very underrated as both a spy film and a comedy film and everyone should go watch it.
1. Jason statham is surprisingly hilarious and also her love interest?????
2. She genuinely has 3 great fight scenes, flips dudes over her shoulders and stabs two people. All the fights are realistic to her body type and her fighting style is kind of like what a heavy would do in a video game. Really cool.
3. There is hilarious German pop in it.
4. Jude law pretending to be American
5. She spends a lot of the film fending off another agent’s romantic advances.
6. Lots of swearing and costume changes. Melissa McCarthy looks unexpectedly great with bangs.

Sabrina will be brought in at the very end of the season as an escapee of a cult
KJ says Archie will be more decisive than in the comics and that he will choose between B&V by the end of the season, but also mentions that he’s pretty sure it won’t be permanent, as this is Archie Andrews we’re talking about here
There is going to be love triangle with the grown ups
KJ prefers having orange hair now, he and his cast mates think it looks weird now that he’s got it back to black

The show really wants to focus on being an ensemble rather than focused on just Archie
There will be other classic side characters brought in
Cole thinks it’s really important that Jughead is asexual in the comics
The show is working off the Mark Waid comics where Jughead does not have a defined sexuality, so that is still unclear for the show
Cole thinks Jughead will be a romantic interest/pursuit, but that first and foremost his love is for food
Jughead is a budding writer, a photographer, and an amateur sleuth
Jughead’s main concern is what’s going on in the town
Jason was shot
Jughead has been viewing everyone’s reaction to the murder from the outside, taking pictures, and asking “weird, piercing questions”

Roberto is hoping for a January 27th release, but that is TBD
They never found his body, but they say his spirit lives in the forest. This forest. A maniac, a thing no longer human. They say he lives on whatever he can catch. Eats them raw, alive maybe. And every year he picks on a summer camp and seeks his revenge for the terrible things those kids did to him. Every year he kills. Right now he’s out there. Watching. Waiting. So don’t look; he’ll see you. Don’t breathe; he’ll hear you. Don’t move - you’re dead!
I finished watching two seasons of Sense8 and dying for 3rd season. Netflix has not renewed it…or does anyone know otherwise? Everyone should watch this show. The character development, filming locations, chemistry between all the actors, storyline, fluid sexuality etc - simply superb. Many shows can learn from how the writers overturn stereotypes at every opportunity. And Kala and Wolfgang? Damn, they are simply gorgeous together, and even when apart.
Request: @whispersandwhiskerburnCongrats on 300! This quote is from the film Secondhand Lions (hilarious, everyone should watch it). It’s part of a speech called “What Every Boy Needs To Know About Being a Man”. Here’s the quote: “Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue are everything, and that power and money mean nothing. That good always triumphs over evil and true love never dies.”

A/N: A huge thank you as always to @avasmommy224 for being such an awesome beta. Thank you Angel for this, It was one of my favorite requests!! Hope you enjoy! Also, the gif is not mine, I found it on google images!
Disclaimer: The quote she sent me was such a Bobby quote I had to use him, I am WELL aware that Bobby was gone by the time Dean became a demon but there was no one else more qualified to speak this than the man himself….
It had been months since you’d seen or heard from Dean. After Metatron killed him and Crowley stepped in, things had been pretty upside down in your little family’s world. You, Bobby, and Sam had done everything you could possibly think of to bring him back home. It seemed to hit you the hardest, as you and Dean had become a couple during his battle with the mark.
last night i watched D.E.B.S. (2004) dir. angela robinson as a part of my 52 films by women challenge and it was a cinematic masterpiece… think spy kids meets charlie’s angels with a lesbian forbidden romance twist… truly iconic
Sweet Smell of Success (Alexander Mackendrick, 1957)
Oh if dialogues could kill. Watching this film would brutally murdered you with words. “You’re a cookie full of arsenic!” Who the fuck living on this planet is talking like that! Insane script. Everyone who aspires to write should watch this great film.
Why was it forgotten?: INITIALLY THOUGHT TO BE RACIST AND AT THIS POINT IS MORE OF AN ART FILM RATHER THAN AN ENTERTAINING FILM.
This is one of the big ones folks, one of the most prolific of forgotten animated films. A cult hit by legendary animation god, Ralph Bakshi that is unmatched by any other animated film in its style or its portrayal of its subject matter.
I could do a whole week dedicated to the works of this animator but I feel I should spotlight one of his works sooner rather than later. Why not rush in, guns a-blazing with one of his most controversial and personal of films, Coonskin.
Now with that title, and this trailer I shouldn’t have to explain why the film was met with a mountain of controversy both pre-and-post-release. I shouldn’t, but I will. The movie shows a massive amount of depictions of “black” characters as violent gangsters, con-men, sociopathic monsters, drug addicts, etc, etc and doesn’t shy away from blackface caricatures, and stereotypes that have aided in marginalizing Blacks in America for several decades.
Some people out there will argue that even though Bakshi grown up in the epicenter of Harlem, New York during the time of segregation in America, lived and worked with Black Americans his whole life, specifically wanted black artists, animators, and voice actors that the film is bad for showing such imagery.
Even if it’s all presented in a satirical way (which it is), it’s still bad to show these caricatures and black characters acting in a stereotypical way because it only helps to reinforce those stereotypes and keep them alive. That’s pretty nonsensical since the entire point of the movie is to show that these types of things manufactured by Hollywood and ingrained in the popular culture are bad. They’re thrown in your face in a way that’s striking and horrible and you can’t believe it exists, or that such a thing was ever ok. Its meant to be raw, gritty, and spit in the face of White America that doesn’t know what Blacks have had to contend with and what their culture has been forced to be like.
Then again, nobody is really depicted in a positive light; White people in this movie are stereotyped, Gays, and Jews are HEAVILY stereotyped, and cops… well, cops are cops, ain’t no changing that.
Despite the controversy, and how it received a limited release it became a cult classic among animation fans and is heralded by Bakshi as one of his best works, if not his best work.
Nowadays– in all honesty while the film should be watched by everyone as a genius work of satire, it’s more on the artistic side rather than the entertaining side. Bakshi is one of those directors who is in love with his rough and gritty style and loves to linger on his visuals for the audience to absorb. In every one of his movies he has this problem with pacing; drawing out some scenes that look great or are meant to convey a message. Other scenes just kind of get zipped past or don’t have much to them, making the movies feel longer than they actually are.
This makes his movies, particularly Coonskin more along the lines of something to be enjoyed for the art rather than the story, which isn’t a bad thing but kind of kills rewatchability.
“Everything worth anything is both terrifying and beautiful. Like the first time you do something that you know is wrong. You know it’s wrong and yet you do it anyway. There was a ladybug crawling around my ankle when I saw Victoria let he grandmother’s bird escape from its cage. I watched the bird disappear into the endless sky like a lonely balloon. It was so sad. That image left a scar that never completely healed, because until then I thought that bad things could only happen by accident, never on purpose. It was Victoria who first made me confront that danger exist on the inside of everybody.” Tanner Hall (2009)
Today’s prompt as “wet” and it is a full moon tonight, so what better chance to do some Song of the Sea styled fanart? (also, everyone should watch that film - go do it now! I’ll wait here to hear what you think about it after!)
