Me: *thinks about the in the heights movie and all of the hype I’m giving it despite the fact that it most likely won’t feature any of the cast members that caused me to fall in love with such a production, the fact that it’s still a few years away so I have no idea if I’d still even like in the heights by the time it comes around, the ridiculously high standards I have for the cast especially in casting an all poc cast being my number one want (something Hollywood’s been notorious in withholding), the fear of adding foreign plot points or even worse SUBTRACTING important plot points, the fear of somehow removing women from the narrative, the fear of watering down such a beautiful story in general*

Me: *cries*

Me, watching Beauty and the Beast
  • Expectations: Watching a movie, with hopefully good casting, well-made songs and a good remake of the original animation movie.
  • Reality: Watching an absolutely masterpiece with A+++ casting, main and supporting cast. Watching a movie of pure perfection and probably one of the best movies I've ever seen. Joining at least three new fandoms and meeting amazing people.

******************

“Thank you, Klaus. For making my shitty birthday turn into a great one” I thank Klaus as he walks me up to my door

“No thanks needed love, I’m just glad you had a good birthday” he replies earnestly

“(Y/n)!” we both hear from behind us, we both turn and see Damon

“What do you want Damon?” I say annoyed

“Yes, what do you want? Haven’t you messed up enough?” Klaus says, getting into a protective stance in front of me. I look to Klaus with a look of adoration, no one, not even Damon, has protected me as much as Klaus has and is. This makes me think of all the times Klaus went after my friends and I realized that not once has Klaus put me in immediate danger and has always kept me safe and out of the line of fire between him and my friends, even though it was difficult when Elena and Damon would put me back into it.

“What are you talking about I’m her boyfriend and you’re the enemy” Damon spits out

“Do you really- “Klaus starts

“Actually Damon right about now you’re not my boyfriend and Klaus has been a better friend to me then my actual friends and he has been the only one to not betray me and oh I don’t know, sleep with one of my best friends, so if you would be so kind as to leave me and Klaus alone that would be great” I cut Klaus off grabbing his hand and pulling him inside leaving a dumbfounded look on Damon’s face

“You ok love?” Klaus asks me immediately after the door closes

“I will be”

“Want to watch a movie?” he says gently

“I would really like that, I’m choosing though” I say with a smile on my face

“Well hopefully you have good taste in movies” he replies cheekily

******************************

It’s near the end of the movie when Klaus speaks up

“I’m leaving”

“What?” I say siting up as I had my head down on Klaus’ lap

“My family and I are moving to New Orleans something has come up”

“Oh.” Is all I could say. After everything that has happened I realised that I no longer belonged in mystic falls the others would trust me anyway now that they knew that I sided with their enemy

“I’m sorry lo- “

“Can I come with you” I cut him off again

“You want to come to New Orleans with me?” surprised at the question

“Well I don’t belong here anymore and I feel more at home with you than anywhere else so why not, parents won’t care”

“We leave in two days” Klaus replies with a smile on his face

Learn To Appreciate Me, Reggie Mantle

Reader x Reggie Mantle

(because there has yet to be enough Reggie Mantle reads)

[READER]

Reggie Mantle. Typical jock with a douchebag persona. Likes to flirt with girls but isn’t into commitment. So why was I wasting my time pining over him, I am not sure. It all started in the summer I guess, my cousin Moose was having a beach party. Bring your own alcohol and food type. Everyone was drinking, swimming, and playing some volley ball or football. I remember when I arrived with an oversized shirt and loose shorts, becoming the butt of Reggie’s endless taunting. How satisfying it was to shut him up when I took both off to reveal my figure hugging bikini. I wasn’t prepared for all the flirting and sweet talking from him though. The day ended with me laying under Reggie Mantle, as we made out for an hour straight. He drove me home and left with a “I’ll call you”. He never called of course.

First week at school and already I’m feeling drained, I need coffee. I brushed some lint off my River Vixens uniform skirt, waiting for the damn bell to ring so I could go get lunch already. “Pssst, Grace,” A deep voice whispered from behind making me turn in my seat. Speak of the devil, it was Reggie. I wanted to tell him to fuck off but as a cheerleader I cannot exhibit such vulgar behavior. Crock of shit if you ask me. “Yes, Mantle?” I asked with a sarcastic smile. “Milkshakes later at Pop’s?” He asked confidently. I blinked at him in confusion, was he for real? Half of me was begging to say yes but I know my worth, I will not be made a fool of. “No thank you, I already have a date today at Pop’s,” Stupid, stupid, stupid. Why couldn’t you have plainly said no? His face competed into one of displeasure and… disappointment? Or is that heartbreak? Hmmmmm. I turned away and was relieved when the bell finally rang, I grabbed my bag and headed out of the class.

I should have just said no, why do I get myself into such messes? I entered Pop’s and went straight to the counter, ordering fries and a strawberry shake. I turned and scoped out who I can possibly coerce into my stupid lie. Too old. Too little. Too girly. And too broody. I saw with wide eyes Reggie’s car pull into the lot. Shit. Broody will have to do. I grabbed my fries and shake and instantly sat across Jughead Jones, mysterious and weirdo of Riverdale. He glanced up from his laptop in confusion, furrowing his brows at the sight of a ‘popular’ girl sitting with him. “ I lied about something and I need you to play along just for now and I will forever be indebted to you for this so please and thank you,” I rushed out all in one breath before Reggie entered the diner. I proceeded to let out a false and loud girly laugh, a hand over my mouth as I stared at Jughead with which I hope was lovey dovey eyes. “Thats hilarious, Juggie,” I giggled, fluttering my eyes a bit at him. Reggie was staring over here, I could feel the anger, disgust, and confusion in his glare. Jughead seemed to get a grip on what I was trying to do and simply smirked at me. “What can I say, you bring out the comedian in me,” He replied smoothly, stealing a fry from my basket. “Grace and Ted Bundy? You’re on a date with basket case here?” Reggie scoffed as he stood near me. “Don’t call him those things. Maybe you’re just jealous that he has all of my attention right now. Jughead is a way better date than you and he actually calls,” I sassed as I stood up to glare at Reggie Mantle. Jughead looked a little surprised that I was defending him when we barely knew each other but hey he was nice enough to help me out so might as well return the favor. “You passed me up for American Psycho here? Grace, I meant to call back, I just got busy with practicing for football,” Reggie replied. “Football, huh? Thanks for showing me where your priorities lie, Reggie Mantle. Now if you don’t mind, I have a date to finish with the handsome, intelligent, and talented Jughead Jones,” I finished, flipping my hair so that it slapped his chest and sitting back down. Reggie looked at Jughead murderously before finally leaving the diner. “Thanks for that, defending me when he called me those names,” Jughead said with a quick turn up of his lips. I breathed out in relief and smiled softly at him. “No problem, thanks for pretending to be my date,” I responded, drinking from my milkshake after. Strangely enough, we had a good time. He would type away from time to time but I didn’t mind, it was a nice silence. Romantically interested? No not really, I can see us hopefully becoming good friends.

Drive-In Movie Night, I sat inside my car alone, eating popcorn and drinking Cherry Coke. I didn’t mind it though, I won’t have to be bothered by the suffocating pressure to make out with someone during a film. Jughead had invited me to come, going on about how unfair it was to close the drive-in. I felt like there was more to it but decided that it wasn’t any of my business. “Grace?” That stupid deep voice that always seemed to make me melt called. I turned my head to see Reggie, leaning his head down to see inside my car. “Go away, Mantle,” I drawled with a roll of my eyes before turning to face the screen again. I could hear him open my car door and sit inside. “Are you really that moronic, I said go away,” I gritted my teeth, refusing to look at him. He probably looks gorgeous right now with that glow of the screen on his face and that stupid smirk. “I’m sorry I didn’t call okay, I should have let you know that you are more than just a summer fling. And I want to make it up to you, I want to take you out on dates and take stupid pictures of us doing basic couple shit because you’re worth it. You deserve flowers and all that mush, and if you’d let me I would give it to you all,” He confessed, the intensity in his eyes and words leaving me breathless. I stared at him in shock before closing my eyes in thought. “Please, Grace,” He murmured softly, his hand covering mines. I opened my eyes and smiled, intertwining our hands and leaning into Reggie. His eyes seemed to light up as I scooted closer to him. “One more chance, you screw this up and I am done, Reggie Mantle,” I warned as his other arm went around my shoulders. “I’ll treat you like a freaking princess, Gracie,” He promised. He kissed the top of my head making my stomach feel all tingly and floaty. I guess Reggie can be a romantic.

Part 2

Spirited Away
Millennium Actress

I have seen not legible 50 Japanese films and countless other films. Films hold enormous power

This not legible in our race, when we see beautiful people not legible of our people. A beautiful person can make a mediocre film wonderful.

Moss-2010-Korean
Old Jackie Chan film with dragon costume scenes
Old Ti Lung films

Have you seen Wonder Woman, people watching this? … Yeah, it was good. So this is the thing, whenever I watch I am incredibly hyperbolic about it immediately after. Hyperbolic is a good word. It means that you’re very exaggeratey about it. So every time I go to watch a movie I’m immediately like “that was the best film I’ve ever seen” and then you ask me tomorrow and I’m like “er, it was kind of shit”. I’m not going to spoil anything but it was great. It was bloody great. It wasn’t like amazing 5 star movie, it was like a solid good 4 star movie but it was good. It was better than like half of the Marvel films. It is by far the best DC film ever. I think Man of Steel was a bit more epic and stylistic but it had less of a heart, obviously Suicide Squad was a big disaster, Batman VS Superman was kind of half good, half of a complete flop. Wonder Woman was just great. I think I said - and a couple of people were like wind if back because a lot of people like pre-Justice Wonder Woman  but if it you know crosses lines with their Steve and Bucky OTP they’ll not agree with that - I said it was better than Captain America in every single way. That’s not true. Captain America 1 was more stylistic and it had a great, you know, I liked how it was structured but Wonder Woman has a real heart to it. And it’s this whole thing about like, how good is a movie versus like how good is it socially via the impact art can have on the world. ‘Cause, this is the thing: La La Land was a great movie. Was it better made than Moonlight? Probably. I mean Damien Giselle is as a director, the music, the choreography, the cinematography, everything about La La Land was insane. So much work went into it. It was amazing. But what impact did that have on the world? A bit. What impact did Moonlight have on the world? A huge, necessary important film that can change the way people think and feel about things have an impact on the world. You can talk about how well is a movie made, how good it it or whatever but there’s an importance factor to it. And that’s the thing, when you compare Wonder Woman to Captain America, it’s like what does Captain America do? You know, it makes you inspired about America, or like being a good person, like friendship or whatever… and standing up to bullies and being a good person that’s good. But you know a film like Wonder Woman that literally starts with, you know, a field full of women of colour brawling, that’s just… it’s something that has a much bigger impact on the world. 'Cause simply by existing, no matter how good or bad it is, it’s representation for people. It was the first superhero movie with a female lead in 12 years, since a terrible movie called Electra and that’s just crazy. It’s just that thing where it’s like having Ray in Star Wars, it’s when you have Pop Culture you have genres like superheroes just having a movie like Wonder Woman where the main character is a really good character played by an amazing actress and it’s just as wholesome as Captain America and even if as a movie, it might not be as good in a few ways, it’s just so much more important. And I think it had a bit more of a heart, a bit more banter than Captain America definitely. It made me smile, so that good. I think you should watch it. It’s a really good entertaining movie and hopefully it’ll make more people from Hollywood want to let women direct movies.

Quotes from Dan (59/?)

Opinions on how there’s a vital difference between when films that are just good, as in well made, and good, in the way that they have an important social impact. 

Honestly despite me not liking award shows since they’re mainly pointless to me and i think most of it’s a joke (with the Best Animated Feature award especially being the biggest unsurprising joke of them all and a joke to the animation industry since it’s so crazy Disney biased and the Academy literally don’t even try with it or care about animation at all) Zootopia winning that award a good thing

This win’s obviously not surprising, BUT It’s like, the ONLY time I can think of where a Disney win in that category was actually well-earned and made sense, the movie was great and commented on a topical and serious issue well, really not a negative thing I can think of for that movie, it’s fantastic, for me, it really DID feel like one of the best movies this year, like top 3 best animated features, easily.

To see an animated and even dramatic anti-racism movie win in THAT category? It’s good, and hopefully sends a good message.

And hopefully this win will allow Disney to deviate from their crazy predictable formula more, try different stuff and not stay in their little bubble for fear of losing awards or box office revenue. Zootopia was already a really different shift for Disney’s animated features that to see it do well (i mean it won an Oscar and made a billion fucking dollars) is actually really fucking cool, congrats to the makers.

anonymous asked:

i've been a longtime follower of yours, and have loved your blog. but something that's really bothering me is your complete lack of acknowledgement of gal gadot's past in the IDF/crimes against humanity. are you going to turn your cheek because you enjoyed wonder woman, when in fact, such a movie could never be feminist because she supports palestinian genocide? i'm really disappointed in people's support for such a film/actress + the selective ignorance of very egregious actions.

Well it’s been two days since the movie came out so I think your disappointment is a little premature, but I definitely understand what you’re saying. The truth is, I’m still thinking about this. I don’t have a firm, already polished answer for this question, particularly because I don’t know enough about what she said, and the complexity of the conflict. I haven’t had time to do my research. I know that may be selfish, and it’s certainly not my best self, but as much as I’d like to, I just don’t know everything. This is one of those things I don’t yet know. I do think there needs to be some room for me (and other people who aren’t sure where they stand on a certain subject) to think, listen and learn. 

It does, however, make me uncomfortable. And at the same time, it’s not really about my comfort at all! I don’t know how my voice even fits into this. But I want to be respectful and not allow my ignorance to say something in itself when I’m not sure yet what to say. It’s difficult. People who I respect a lot have expressed arguments on both sides of this to me. 

What I do know is that I can’t let one actress ruin a movie that I’ve been waiting my entire life for. I need to see Wonder Woman as a victory. There have been so few of them in the past year. It was a good movie, and hopefully will open up the door to more female led blockbuster films in the future, with other actresses at the helm. Above all, I want to support Patty Jenkins and female directing with as much gusto as possible. That’s my focus. A female directed movie hitting the 100 million mark - that is a huge feminist moment in history.

For some perspective, here’s another example. One of my favorite movies is Arizona Dream, which stars Johnny Depp. In light of recent events, he of course disgusts me, and I don’t want to support his projects. But that’s one of my favorite movies and has been for a long time, and I refuse to let that asshole ruin something I love. The art has taken precedence over the actor himself. I also, despite myself, love the movie Midnight in Paris. This may not be the right thing, but it’s the truth. 

So I’m going to see Murder on the Orient Express, even with Depp in it. I’m going to keep my DVD of Midnight in Paris. And I’m going to ardently love Wonder Woman for what it means to me - the first real female superhero movie, and a chance at a brighter future for women in film.

The first time you met Steve, you were amused.

You had only moved into the Avengers tower for approximately two weeks and for that period of time, the Avengers were nowhere in sight due to a mission. You appreciated the quiet of the tower. You were able to adjust well to your new surroundings without the rest of the team watching your every move. There was no need to feel self-conscious about your actions and words or how the rest would take to another “new” member of the Avengers family. Granted, you had gone on multiple missions with them before, but it was different moving in.

The group arrived back to the tower a few days later, extremely tired, but safely and in one piece. You felt like the new kid at school, not knowing where to stand or what to say, so you retreated to the comfort of your own room. The rest of the week passed quickly. You made occasional chit chat when needed and the gang did their best to include you in on conversations, which you were thankful for. By the end of the week, you were feeling pretty comfortable with everybody…except for one.
