he is an amazing actor in this movie

I am thankful for my…

Eddie Redmayne may currently be celebrating the amazing success of “Harry Potter” prequel “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” but the Oscar-winner says what he’s grateful for this year is his baby daughter, Iris.
“She’s quite a big baby,” the actor said recently while promoting his latest movie. (x)

One of the most versatile and talented thespians of his generation, John Hurt has been turning out one amazing performance after another for decades. Probably best known as Kane, the first victim of the xenomorph in Alien, he’s well known to a whole new generation of younger viewers from his roles in movies like Harry Potter, Hellboy, and Indiana Jones 4. This is my tribute to a brilliant actor.

UPDATE: Got an email this morning from John Hurt’s personal assistant. Apparently he saw the illustration and wants a print. Ok, that just completely made my day! O_O

When it came time to cast Kaecilius, Mikkelsen was the first and only choice.
“You look at Mads’ body of work and, yes, people know ‘Hannibal’ and the James Bond villain,” Feige said. “But if you look at his Danish work, he’s amazing. He can be funny, he can be romantic. And that’s what we want: Actors who, when it comes to villains, can bring pathos to it.”

Just wanted to share few (kind of) thoughts about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

and what some (most) people seem to complain about.

One thing, before I start. I’m Italian, so obviously English is not my mother tongue. I want to apologize in advance for the (many) possible mistakes I’ll make.

I really, really enjoyed this movie, not only because it’s been 5 years (!) since Deathly Hallows has been released (so many years, I’m gonna cry) and I missed Harry Potter’s world so much, but also for many other (and deeper) reasons:

  • Eddie Redmayne. God bless him. Most people know him for The Theory of Everything and/or The Danish Girl, which are pretty recent movies. But I’ve known him since The Pillars of the Earth (2010) and I can tell you he was already an amazing actor. Through these years he even improved his terrific acting skills. Just think about how detail-oriented he is and how every expression he makes is thought out and calculated. He’s so talented, yet so grounded and kind. We can really consider him one of the best contemporary actors.
  • Ezra Miller. This young man never ceases to amaze me. I’ve known him since We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011) and, like Eddie Redmayne, he was already brilliant at that time. This movie has only confirmed my opinion. His acting is extremely expressive, he elevated the quality level of the movie. Especially if we think that he played an abused and damaged character (two of the hardest conditions to impersonate for an actor) with admirable accuracy and realism in a movie that isn’t supposed to be angst and that the public opinion consider to be affable and enjoyable. I’m so proud of him for having been able to do that.
  • Tina Goldstein. A very well-played character. Didn’t really like her at first, but I changed my mind during the movie. She’s strong and determined yet quite insecure. Katherine Waterstone could show each trait, suiting perfectly her character.
  • Colin Farrell. Do we really need to talk about him? Don’t think so.
  • The whole cast. From the freaking scary little girl singing freaking scary songs about burning witches, to the stupid Senate candidate. All the actors played masterfully their roles.
  • The set. New York, roaring ‘20s, I don’t need anything else, I swear.
  • The soundtrack. I loved every damn track from this wonderful score (also, Hedwig’s theme had me crying the Niagara falls tbh).
  • The beasts. Colourful, sweet, majestic and fabulous. Love them.

Am I missing something? Hope not.

And now let’s talk about what so many of you seem so keen to complain about:

  • Johnny Depp. For God’s sake, are you really complaining about his presence in the movie? Fight me. First of all, he’s one of the greatest actors this damned planet has ever seen. He’s played so many roles, so different one from another and succeeded in every of them. Second of all, I figured out most of you criticize him not for his acting skills, but for what happened with Amber Heard. What does that have to do with it? Also guess what, we do not know what really happened! There aren’t any proofs proving what Depp was accused of. (Obviously I am NOT saying that beating a woman or whatever is fair, I’m just recommending you not to jump to conclusions and judge without knowing facts). I think you need to learn how to separate the person from the actor.
  • The lack of black people. Jfc, the fucking President of MACUSA is a black woman. Now, with this I don’t want to insinuate that there were plenty of black people, I’m just suggesting not to overstate the question.
  • The contextualisation. For all of those who “Rowling seems to have forgotten all the situations that were going on at that time in USA (ex slaves, natives, etc.), it’s so superficial”, shall I remind you that this movie is actually a slice of life and doesn’t represent the whole situation of the entire wizarding world in USA? It’s just a point of view, besides Newt’s one. Moreover this is the FIRST of FIVE movies, can’t you wait? Maybe in the next one those questions will be solved.

I think I’ve finished, but before the very end, I just wanna ask you: why, for once, can’t you just enjoy a good movie, with a really pretty plot, amazing actors and stunning special effects?

To the one who managed to read until this point, thank you, you were very brave. I’m sorry for the length. And for the bitterness, hope I didn’t go too far and didn’t offend anyone.

Okay, I’ve really finished this time. All the love.

Closet Monster (2015) - Stephen Dunn

5 bullets on this film:

  • The plot isn’t really original, it’s the usual coming-of-age film about a boy struggling with his sexuality, but it’s very realistic and inspiring. 
  • The actors are amazing, but Connor Jessup, who plays the protagonist, is woah.  You can really notice that he’s feeling his character. 

  • The cinematography and the soundtrack are very on point.

  • The only thing that bothered me was that you can really notice Xavier Dolan’s influence and some scenes were the same as J’ai Tué ma Mère and Les Amours Imaginaires. And I mean LITERALLY the same. 

  • MAN, I LOVED THAT TALKING HAMSTER!!!! CAN WE GIVE AN OSCAR TO THAT HAMSTER? PLEASE!!!!!!!

You know, I wonder what it’s like to be Scott Cawthon. Running such a popular gaming franchise that has its own merchandise that people fangirl over, a community that has stuck together for 3 years now. Hiring voice actors that are basically now celebrities to this fandom, and having many fans that love him and appreciate him (myself included). I’m proud of Scott, I’m happy that he’s still going, and you know how it must feel for him making a MOVIE out of it? And getting fan songs? Fan art? Fan fiction? AMAZING!

But I think it’s sad to think about how he feels about the people calling his fans “cringe” or telling them to kill themselves, or even saying FNAF by now is just milking for money. I don’t wanna sound like one of those people asking for notes, but please, spread this and let Scott know that we will stick around and defend him when needed! We love you, Scott, your name will be tattooed into our hearts for decades to come. :)

Who knows? Maybe he’ll see this post and we’ll put a smile on his face.

During the roundtable interviews at the Fantastic Beasts press junket, Fantastic Beasts director David Yates (who will also helm the sequel) confirmed that Albus Dumbledore will appear in the next Fantastic Beasts installment, and that casting for the role is underway. He teased that Dumbledore and Scamander will even have a handful of scenes together in the film:

“In the second movie Dumbledore comes back. There are a couple good scenes with Newt. We just have to find out who would play him.”

Yates also confirmed that Johnny Depp is indeed playing Geller Grindelwald:

“We filmed early. I was amazed. It was completely bonkers. I was convinced it [would be leaked] you can keep very few secrets nowadays, especially something like that! When he came to Leavesden and we filmed for two days…and it didn’t come out. That’s mad.”

David Yates explained why they chose Depp, saying: 

“The whole principal of casting the movie was go with the best actor. Go for the most inspired, interesting, right fit for that character. And as we approached Grindelwald we thought, ‘who’s going to take this in an interesting direction?’ In this business, it’s a weird old business. You’re brilliant one week, people are saying odd things the next, you go up and down. But no one takes away your pure talent. Johnny Depp is a real artist. He’s created several characters who have really resonated in our popular culture. He’s a really brilliant, brilliant actor. We were excited about seeing what he would do with this guy, the character. He’s fearless; he’s imaginative; he’s ambitious. We thought he would do something fun and special. So we went for him, purely on that selfish basis. We don’t care if he’s famous or not famous. We just know he’s interesting.”

{I need to find more fandom blogs so hit me up, I promise I don’t bite - that’s not one of my kinks.}

Imagine Chris talking about you with his fans.

A/N: You know what happens when you can’t sleep? You dazedly finish requests. Oh God, this is my fourth fic of the day and I no longer know if I’m making any sense. This one was requested by @ateliefloresdaprimavera, I went off script a little but I hope you enjoy it anyway. X

You stood side stage with Chris’ bodyguard as you listened to him talk to his fans about his movie, ‘Before We Go’ in which he starred and directed. You were so insanely proud of him and all the amazing things he’d achieved over the years, a large one being his contract with MCU. He’d gone through his fair share of lousy and degrading roles- as did most actors and actresses, so you were happy that he was finally where he wanted to be and getting recognition for his incredible talent. You were a fan before you became his girlfriend, and as far as you were concerned, you were going to be a fan even if things didn’t end up the way you wanted it to.

Though that wasn’t going to be a problem. The two of you had been together for years now, with marriage definitely somewhere in the picture. Your parents loved him as much as his parents loved you. Your relationship with his siblings, nephews, and nieces, and his relationship with yours couldn’t be better. You got along with his friends and he got along with yours. You had even won the hearts of his fans who were protective- to say the least- of their Captain; they realized that he was the happiest around you and they couldn’t let their jealousy get in the way of his happiness. It didn’t take long for them to love you as much as Chris did because unlike the rest of the actresses he had been with, you were just like the rest of them; an ordinary, everyday girl.

You’d met Chris in the most unconventional way. It was coincidental and purely out of good luck that you crossed paths with him. In fact, meeting him made you believe in a universal power because you would’ve never met him if that invisible, omnipotent force didn’t pull him into your path. Even the word ‘never’ was an understatement 'cause you weren’t famous, nor were you important. You were just an ordinary girl who worked in a bakery that just so happened to have dropped her phone while rushing past Chris Evans. He did the honorable thing and tried to return the phone, unaware that he would soon meet the love of his life.

“We’ve got time for one last question.”

You heard the interviewer tell the crowd and a collective “booooo!” washed over the hall. Chris chuckled but remained indifferent as he wanted to end the interview so he could rejoin your side and take you to dinner. You’d spent all day following him around and patiently waiting while he signed pictures and took selfies with his fans, you needed a break from the famous people scene.

“Let’s see,” Chris scanned the crowd. “You, with all the hand gestures. Hi,” he smiled brightly. “Yeah, you did good. I would’ve never picked you if you didn’t do all that,” he chuckled. “What’s your question?”

“Hi,” the girl- who sounded no more than fifteen spoke shyly. “Um- You did a wonderful job with the movie and I am a huge fan of Captain America. I think you are incredibly talented and we are lucky to have you in our lives and on our movie screens.”

“Why, thank you.” Chris smiled.

“But I don’t really have a question, I just wanted to tell you that I speak for most of your fan base when I say we are very happy you found someone like Y/N to make you happy.” The young girl told Chris and you saw his smile ten-fold upon hearing your name. “We think she’s lovely and we hope the two of you get married and have adorable baby Avengers.”

“Aw, thank you,” Chris chuckled. “I am very happy with Y/N, I think she’s wonderful and I hope we get married and have adorable baby Avengers too.” He glanced at you and you chuckled, shaking your head. “Since we’re talking about it, I’d like to thank all of you for being so incredibly supportive of our relationship because it definitely makes things easier for us.”

The crowd cheered and clapped.

“Is Y/N here with you?” The young girl asked.

Chris grinned, “yeah. C'mon,” he held out his hand and gestured you towards him with a wiggle of his fingers. “Yes,” he nodded when you shook your head. “C'mon, baby.” You heard the excitement in the crowd increase and you sighed, knowing you had no choice. “Give her a hand.” He smiled when you walked out of the side stage towards him.

“I hate you,” you whispered into his ear when he wrapped an arm around you.

“I love you too,” he chuckled softly then held the microphone in front of your mouth.

“Hi everyone,” you waved and the crowd cheered. “Thank you for being so welcoming. Chris always says he has the most supportive fans and I definitely see that now. Well- I see it on Tumblr and Twitter and Instagram quite often but- it’s nice to actually feel the support in person.”

“I love you, Y/N!” You heard someone yell.

“That’s my job,” Chris joked and laughter erupted.

“Thank you for making him happy, Y/N.” The same young girl who had spoken about you moments before said. You looked up and spotted her, you smiled and nodded. “You’re amazing and we all love you so much.”

“Thank you,” you smiled. “I love you guys too.”

“Alright, that’s us.” The interviewer said and the crowd clapped as you and Chris walked off the stage, waving. “Thank you all for coming out. Let’s give a round of applause for Chris Evans and be sure to see his movie, Before We Go!” The applause got louder and could be heard even after you disappeared around the stage corner.

“They love you,” Chris kissed the side of your head. “Almost as much as I do,” he said and smiled when you kissed his cheek. “What do you think?” He raised an eyebrow at you. “You think you’re ready for all that stuff that girl was talking about?”

“I’m ready whenever you are, Captain.” You told him, smiling.

Don't get me wrong...

Robert’s role of Tony Stark is amazing. He is literally meant to be TS. But he needs to step away from Marvel for a sec. Team Downey needs a chance. Robert is only getting older, but he still looks like a daydream… He needs something Oscar worthy. His talent isn’t recognized enough for how amazing he actually is. How amazing of a person he is once you look past the Iron Man character and see all the charity work he’s done. To go out of his way to meet these kids and FaceTime them…
I feel like Team Downey has been put on the back burner. The Judge 2014 was one of the best movies of 2014 and it got no recognition. The story was great, the crew was awesome, actors were amazing, directors, producers, etc.. WHY? Why wasn’t it given a chance?
So if I’m saying anything at all, is that, Robert: please hang the Iron Man suit up for a bit… you have so much more to offer that the world needs to see other than being a literal superhero. Make some movies with your AMAZING wife!

My Main Five Problems With The Upcoming Citizen Kane Remake

As many of my fellow movie fans are aware, a remake of the grand classic movie of all time is coming in 2019. Here’s why this is a terrible idea:

  1. Shia LaBeouf is no Orson Welles. I know he’s a popular actor these days but Welles had an amazing edge that made him right for the role well beyond being the director. I’m not a fan of LaBeouf but even if I were I’d have gone with another actor for this specific role, and he sure as hell shouldn’t be the one to direct it.
  2. The subject is all wrong. Kane was a media mogul, if you want to remake it, make it about a Rupert Murdoch facsimile or even a blogger that takes the world by storm. Making it about an orthodontist is just weird and unnecessary.
  3. Having Skrillex and Justin Bieber do the soundtrack is wrong on so many levels I don’t even know what to say about it. Just no.
  4. Making Rosebud a CGI-Animated comic relief character betrays everything the original stood for. The whole point of it was that a great man died thinking about (spoiler). Rosebud is not supposed to be the Jar Jar Binks of the Citizen Kane world. And speaking of world-
  5. They’re making it the start of a “cinematic universe?” Really? Is this just the big new buzzword that everyone wants after Marvel? What the hell is the point of a Citizen Kane cinematic universe? There isn’t one. Worst idea ever.

do yourself a favour and read the chaos walking trilogy (or listen to it) and don’t watch the movie

for one, the main characters are 13 - the actors cast are much older. another; the director allegedly called it a post apocalyptic film which shows he doesnt know the subject matter

it’s set in the Future of mankind too and the two main characters are white, which statistically just. wouldn’t be true? 

it’s an AMAZING series, absolutely heartbreaking, and it won’t have the same affect at all on screen judging by the news about it so far

Does the Academy Hate Superheroes?

The Academy Award nominees came out, and there’s a small movie called La La Land, which received 14 nominations; tied for the most nominations of all time. 14 nominations, 8 for Moonlight, 6 for Hacksaw Ridge (which is a fantastic piece of cinema)…but none for movies like Deadpool or Civil War. A Best Adapted Screenplay nominee should have been Deadpool, and I will fight anyone who disagrees.

When will the Academy legitimize superhero films? Granted, BvS and Suicide Squad were bad, Deadpool and Civil War were both amazing, but no love at the Academy Awards. We don’t get to see any superhero film get the credit it deserves at big award shows. Ryan Reynolds got snubbed for the Golden Globe win, and he got snubbed for a nomination for Best Actor. It’s about time superhero movies get the credit they deserve

You know the thing that pisses me off the most about the movies? That Rupert knows he was underused. This brilliant amazing actor knows he wasn’t allowed to act to his fullest, knows he wasn’t able to bring all be could to Ron . For me Rupert was the best actor in the trio and nailed Ron’s character the minute he stepped on screen and it’s tragic he never got to take his role past comic relief.

It’s one thing for the fans to know Rupert wasn’t utilized, but for him to acknowledge it himself. Steve Kloves better never ever let me catch him in the streets.

“it’s very unusual to cast jeremy renner, who is more of a james bond or jason bourne type of an actor, into [the role of] an intellectual, i think he liked that challenge. he came full of generosity, because he’s there to support amy, i was amazed by his talent and strong instincts. he was able to bring that dimension of a scientist in a very dynamic and funny way. the movie owes him a lot.”
