films everyone should watch

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.

Highlights:

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.

good amazing great films

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!

OMG....send help...

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.

Good vs. Evil

Request: @whispersandwhiskerburn Congrats 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.”

Pairing: Demon!Dean x reader, Sam, Bobby (See disclaimer)

Warnings: Demon!Dean, angst, cursing

Word count: 1325

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.

COONSKIN (1975)

American live action/animated crime film written and directed by Ralph Bakshi, about an African American rabbitfox, and bear who rise to the top of the organized crime racket in Harlem, encountering corrupt law enforcementcon artists, and the Mafia. The film, which combines live-action with animation, stars Philip ThomasCharles GordoneBarry White, and Scatman Crothers, all of whom appear in both live-action and animated sequences. 

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.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

I dig this movie, I dig it a lot. I saw it for the first time years ago when I took a course in college about The History of Writing & Cartooning In American Culture.

In short, I would definitely recommend it. Go see this movie, in fact, go hunt it up on youtube right now, you owe it to yourself.

Go on.

Get a move on

Everyone should watch how many times it took Grant to enter through a door, say “oh boy my favorite” and give his girlfriend a kiss

“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)
