Favorite highlights of live action Beauty and the Beast

• They stuck to the beginning of the original story where Belle asks for a rose and her father gets lost and finds a fire and food in the castle.

• “Mama said not to move because it might be scary. Sorry.”

• Belle called the castle home.

• LEFOU! Everything about him was great. He got character development, he had some fantastic lines, his low key flirting with Gaston, his singing!!! I love my boy.

• Lumiere dabbed. Twice.

• It was beautiful. Oh my god the castle made me absolutely melt and Be Our Guest was breathtaking in live action.

• Lefou booping Gaston on the nose.

• How during the song Adam sings he’s climbing higher and higher so he can still see Belle.

• When Adam found out Belle liked Romeo and Juliet he was like “ew no not that book here have my entire library so you can read something better that that filth”.

• I really like how Gaston in the beginning wasn’t that bad, but as the movie went on he got darker and darker.

• Gaston lifTING LEFOU UP ON ONE ARM

• We finally got an explanation as to why no one remembers the castle and the prince and why the servants were cursed too.

• The guy who can’t remember what he lost in the beginning is Mr. Potts and the minute Mrs. Potts called his name I was shaking my friend next to me because oh my god he “lost” his wife and child.

• ADAM. I’ve loved Adam since forever and he’s still so great in this version AND HIS SONG ABOUT BELLE WAS SO SPECTACULAR I COULD FEEL HIS EMOTIONS.

• Cogsworth & Lumiere are still an old married couple and I love it I love them.

• I know he only had a few lines in Be Our Guest, but Cogsworth’s singing voice was amazing

• Adam’s eye makeup in the beginning that made it look like he was wearing a mask if he stood in the light just so.

• I HAVE BEEN GUSHING ABOUT THE NEW LUMIERE DISIGN SINCE THE FIRST TRAILER CAME OUT AND TO FINALLY, FINALLY SEE IT ON THE BIG SCREEN WAS SO SATISFYING THE LITTLE DETAILS HE HAS LIKE HIS PONYTAIL AND THE FACT THAT HIS COAT MOVES WHEN HE DOES WERE SOOOO GOOD I KNOW I’VE SAID THIS A THOUSAND TIMES BUT I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS NEW LUMIERE.

• Lefou has a bite mark from Gaston on his lower stomach and when my friend and I saw it we practically screamed because how exactly do you get a bite mark in that spot if you’re not doing some kinky bedroom stuff.

• The line “there’s a beast on the loose there’s no question, but I fear the wrong monsters released” had me so shook put that on my gravestone I fucking love it.

• It’s sweet and cute and beautiful, but when it gets dark it gets DARK, like, goddamn.

• I loved the detail of whenever a petal falls the castle crumbles further and the servants become more like the objects they are.

• Adam’s beast growl at the end when he’s a human again that, tbh, was really hot.

• The guy who, instead of freaking out when he was put in a dress and makeup, grinned and walked away with his hips swishing and totally owned it.

• That same guy and Lefou dancing together ohhh my god I think I started crying they’re so fucking cute Lefou and his cross dressing boyfriend 5ever.

little things that i should do more often:
  • laughing my heart out ‘til my tummy hurts
  • picking fresh fruits and vegetables from our farm with my gramps
  • expressing my true feelings and showing genuine colors to my parents
  • saying “thank you” instead of “sorry”
  • teaching my dogs some cool tricks from youtube
  • having a nice movie break after studying for eternity
  • getting enough & appropriate amount of sleep
  • giving sweets to little stranger children
  • buying books and after reading, giving it to a person who deserves to read it
  • giving sad people the warmest hugs
  • waking up early and watching the sunrise
  • taking random snaps of my friends doing absolutely anything
  • trying out different accents
  • recording myself talking about the things i love
  • reminiscing the past under the moonlight with an old friend
  • conversing with a friendly stranger on a coffee shop
  • buying myself some flowers on the market
  • listing down the things i love about myself
  • exploring the city alone
  • saying spontaneous compliments to my beautiful friends
  • expressing how much i love the people that matter to me
  • buying a tub of ice cream for personal consumption
  • adding sparkles under my eyes
  • going on a date with myself
  • sketching random buildings on public
  • riding the public transit
  • exploring my own self
  • baking a cake for the ppl i love
  • counting the visible stars
  • volunteering to help
  • writing a pointless but heart-felt song
  • going on a road trip with my favorite people
  • writing letters to strangers and leaving then in the front pocket of my airplane seat
  • getting my crap together
  • painting on the bodies of my friends
  • saying hello to random animals
Can you relate??

Do you ever just have that one character in a TV show/Movie/Book that you love so much and just can’t seem to handle seeing them with another character. Therefore you literally ship them with no one. And it’s not even about the character they are being shipped with or about the ship itself, you’re just so invested in the character that your heart just shatters when you see them with someone else. Even though you know you have absolutely no chance with them, you’re still so possessive. Guys please reblog and say u agree or else i am going to check myself into a mental hospital because I’ve been going crazy thinking about this and if no one can relate than that will prove how fucked up i am.

Peter’s homemade suit

Can I just talk about how proud Peter was with his homemade Spider-Man suit? In the beginning of the film, he wasn’t aware that Tony Stark made him a suit so the kid brought his own costume. When he was filming everything he said “Okay, Peter. You got this. You got this.” while looking at the mirror looking nervous but excited at the same time because out of all the people, he was going to help Mr. Stark fight Captain America. 

So when Happy said, “What are you wearing?” Peter was so confused and the camera showed him looking down to his outfit while saying in such an innocent way, “It’s my suit!”

You can tell it in his tone of voice that this was something he was very proud of. He most likely even sewn it himself. It’s something a 15-year-old with not much allowance can come up with. It wasn’t about just looking cool (for a kid), it was something that he would be wearing around comfortably, swinging here and there. I mean, it’s made up of a hoodie, long sleeved shirt, and joggers. Tony may have made fun of it and called it pajamas, but it’s something Peter was happy about because he designed it himself and you can even notice the spider symbol on his hoodie chest was drawn using a sharpie. He didn’t have resources but he improvised.

His homemade web-shooters? According to the Art of the Movie book, his web shooters have two separate cases that contained two chemicals and when he presses the button, it mixes as it moves forward to produce his webbing. That’s pretty darn neat that he came up with it and manufactured it himself. And I absolutely loved the fact that he was making his web fluid during chemistry lab class in secret when his teacher wasn’t looking and that’s just pretty realistic because again, he didn’t have the materials at home. He’s a dumpster diver and I wouldn’t be surprised if his web-shooters initially came from that.

And his mask? It can squint and everything and then I realized, he made it especially like that because his senses are dialed to 11 and he needed to focus because there was just too much input for him. As much as possible, he’d like to prevent sensory overload. I liked the fact Tony took this into consideration as well since the new suit was able to do that too.

Peter’s a resourceful kid and I loved that about him. So when Happy showed him the new and improved suit made by Tony Stark, he was so over the moon and went “Oh my god. I-I… I don’t understand. Is it… is it for me?!” It was just so pure and the innocence around it was amazing.

And honestly? He deserved it. He deserved it so much and I’m so happy for him that he got a multi-million dollar suit and yet he still kept his first suit.

The general nodded in approval. Rhodey was about to follow him to the Humvee when his cell phone rang. […] He answered it with a curt, “Yeah?”

“Well?” That was all Pepper Potts said. “Well?”

“Well… he’s alive. We know that much.”

“Because you didn’t find his body.”

“Yeah,” he admitted.

“Who’s got him, Rhodey? What do they want with him? Ransom? What?”

“We don’t know, Pepper. I wish to God we did, but we don’t. But we have our best people on it. We’ll find him.”

“You’ll find him.” There was distinct bitterness in her voice. “Because we’ve done such a fantastic job finding people hiding in mountains in Afghanistan, haven’t we…”

“Pepper…”

“You were supposed to protect him, dammit! You with all your weapons and security! You were…”

He had never heard her like this. She had never been anything other than in control, on top of everything. Smiling, efficient, nothing ever threw her. To hear her like this tore him up.

He tried to respond, but before he could, Pepper had brought herself under control. “I’m sorry,” she said.

“You don’t have apolo-”

“No. I do.” Her voice had reacquired its detached, businesslike demeanor. […] You’ll keep me apprised.“

"Absolutely. You’ll be the first one to know.” […]

He pocketed his cell phone and wondered, not for the first time, if Tony Stark was aware of just how completely, totally, and madly in love with him Pepper Potts was. For that matter, he wondered if Pepper herself knew.

Just you friendly neighborhood Spider Man 🕷🕸🕷🕸🕷

I just finished with this top and had to throw it on! Spidey is a classic and with all this Homecoming hype I had to make something inspired by him! I absolutely LOVED the movie and I hope to make more Spider Man themed stuff real soon because, if I’m being totally honest here, I am obsessed with Spider Man at the moment 😄

Thank you to those who have commissioned me, bought from my Etsy, or donated to my Ko-fi, without you I wouldn’t be able to crochet all the things I do 😢❤❤❤

“Reading a book is the most glorious pastime that humankind has yet devised”

-Wislawa Syzmborska

Books. Such wonderful things. They contain hidden mysteries, secret places waiting to be discovered; they whisper to us, and make our imagination grow and bloom like a flower in the spring. There is just so much wonder in books that is still to be unlocked, still to be uncovered. It’s funny how these different combinations of words can lead to so much thought and sheer BEAUTY, like how do these authors do it? I love to just pick up a good book, sit on the couch with a nice cup of chai. Mmmmm just thinking about it makes me warm and fuzzy.

Sadly, I think we have forgotten how to appreciate books for just EXISTING because they truly deserve to be acknowledged. It’s actually quite depressing, I used to read sooso much: in my free time, in lessons (I walked on the wild side, I know), in the car, at MEALS, and the unspoken truth: on the toilet. Ok, we all do it come on. I definitely do not read as much as I used to. My time is being EATEN by the monster that is GCSE’s, and just…I always get DISTRACTED by my phone or my computer. Which is a state which I do not want to be in. I WANT to read, and of course I still do, but maybe like a quarter of how much I used to. Sighhhhh.

Wow, I detect quite a gloomy undertone now and let me just brighten it up a little by saying that one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to read at least 3 books a month, and so far, it’s actually going well! I’ve recently been working through the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, which is so brilliantly funny and clever- 10/10 highly recommend. Before that I was reading various Sherlock Holmes stories (which I absolutely LOVE- so much smart VOCAB learnt) and before that I was reading the Maze Runner series which omg can I just SAY. LOVE. 10000/10. AMAZING. I was obsessed for like 2 MONTHS with this series and was fangirling with my friend who had introduced me to the series (thank the LORDS she did I am eternally grateful). DYLAN O’BRIEN IN THE MOVIE. JUST. Can we just take a moment of silence for the beautiful gloriousness that is Dylan O’Brien. Amen. But yeah, I really want to read MORE so I’m just setting myself goals and finding books that I really like! That’s the ticket. More like that’s the cinema ticket that I’ll be BOOKing (see what I did there) to go see DylAN O’BRIEN IN THE MAZE RUNNER.

I think we all need to read more. Here is my 100% working method for just that:

1. Pick up a new or old book that’s interesting to you

2. Find some quiet time and a quiet space, preferably a nice COMFY, quiet space, like a bed (with a nice duvet of course) or a couch 

3. Retrieve a blanket (or a duvet)

4. Retrieve mug of tea/ chai latte

5. Read on brother

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”

Fight Me MCU- Steve

Definitely my longest list of transgressions commited by a character and I may be just a little angry but MCU Steve doesn’t behave well in Ca;cw which is understandable considering Bucky is involved in the situation, but it creates a host of issues. 


Steve

·       Refers to Wanda as just a kid, brings her into battle

o   If Wanda is just a kid who doesn’t belong on the raft, or imprisoned in the compound, and shouldn’t be held responsible for her actions why is she invited into battle with the Avengers, that seems irresponsible.


·       Allows his team to throw a plane at a teenage spiderman


·       Unwilling to compromise

o   Tony offers a very fair offer in which the accords will be adapted and Bucky will be protected

o   Steve as far as we know never tells his teammates that this occurred


·       Has a standoff in a public airport

o   Tony evacuated the airport, Steve did not know that was going to happen and could have easily put civilian lives in danger

o   Leaves Tony to pay for the damages


·       Ignores 117 countries will because the safest hands are our own

o   Ends up a fugitive in Wakanda unable to help anybody

o   Calls 117 governments most of them democratic and thus ignores the will of 117 countries worth of people


·       Doesn’t tell Tony about his parents murder for 3 years

o   “Sometimes my teammates don’t tell me things”


·       Is literally a soldier for the US military, works with SHIELD a government agency

o   The accords are just governments with agendas trying to control us

o   Steve what? You listen to people in power, it’s good. Tony listens to people in power, and now it’s bad.


·       Does not stay to face the consequences of his actions

o   The concept of Civil Disobedience (MLK) is that it is our duty to stand againt unjust laws, however Civil disobedience also claims that you must answer for the laws you break in standing against those you view as unjust

o   Steve runs away to Wakanda leaving Tony to deal with the fallout.


·       Does not share the information the Zemo orchestrated the assassination


·       Hurt’s innocent German police officers in his quest to save Bucky

o   Threw german swat team members down the stairs

o   Threw an admantium shield at German swat team just trying to do their job


·       Participates in a high-speed chase through the city with T’challa Bucky and the police

o   Most likely resulting in a multitude of casualties


·       Does not blame Wanda for her actions against Tony

o   This is fine, Steve doesn’t have to blame Wanda for her actions against Tony even Though she made them after having years to process her grief

o   He does not offer Tony the same courtesy when Tony attacks Bucky immediately after learning the truth of his parents death


·       No man left behind

o   Steve disables the arc reactor powering the suit (PTSD anyone?) and then leaves Tony in a metal suit in the middle of Siberia, That suit probably weighs more than 300 pounds. Also the force required to break the arc probably would have shattered Tony’s ribcage how he walked away with just a black eye is pure comic book logic, but whatever.


·       Told antman to grow

o   Scott “Hey I can do this thing, it might kill me.”

o   Steve. “Do it!”

 

 

Don’t get me wrong I love Steve, and he absolutely should have defended Bucky against Tony in Siberia because Bucky did not deserve to die for his actions while brainwashed. He also had every right to disagree with the Accords, however he could have fought them legally, and he could have used the legal system to protect Bucky. He instead chose to escalate the situation repeatedly. Ignoring every attempt of Tony to compromise throughout the movie.

MCU Steve Rogers in Civil War reminds me a lot of Thor before he was worthy of the hammer. He chooses to fight instead of compromise, and believes in himself as an absolute moral goodness. Thor chose to fight during a time of peace, and believed himself to be in the right morally at the beginning of his banishment.

Let’s talk about The Hate U Give.

Folks, if you love YA you need to go out and buy this book ASAP. I’m really, really excited about it. I think that this book, written by Angie Thomas (who you should probably be following on Twitter, by the by), is about to become the new classic of YA lit. Here are just a few of the reasons why:

- It’s kinda longish (over 400 pages) but still a really quick read because you’ll be so invested, a sign Angie Thomas is really doing something right

- It’s going to become a movie starring Amandla Stenberg, the absolute treasure of a person who played Rue in the Hunger Games

- The subject matter is just really important. This is a book born from the Black Lives Matter movement, and it’s stunning. I don’t want to spoil the plot too much, but it’s about a girl named Starr who witnesses an act of police brutality and needs to come to terms with the complicated decision of speaking up.

Please go read this book. More importantly, please go buy this book, or if you can’t, borrow it from your local library - the more a title is taken out, the more the library system will buy. It’s important to show that we want books with diverse stories, and that we’ll put our money where our mouths are.

anonymous asked:

What's your personal limit on fight-related bullshit in books/movies/tv/etc? At what point do you put it down or turn it off? Can you tolerate the occasional flaming arrow, or...? What are your absolute turn-offs?

I’ll be honest, my limit is excessively low. I mean, I was watching Fate/Zero the other day. I love the 80s Transformer’s Movie (who doesn’t?). I watch Vikings. I genuinely love some incredibly terrible B-action movies, including G.I. Joe. (Ray Park and Byung Hyun Lee are amazing, and G.I. Joe 2 is where I discovered Elodie Yung before her stint as Elektra.) My tolerance is high. So, if I’m put off it usually isn’t the violence itself.

Here’s the three things that turn me off:

1) Not What It Says On The Tin

This is perhaps the biggest turnoff for me. When a movie, book, piece of entertainment establishes itself as A and then does B. I don’t want to sit down with a movie that bills itself as a “hyper-realistic” thriller and get The Mummy. Now, I love The Mummy, it’s a fabulous movie but it’s billed as a wild and wacky summer action flick. It’s big, goofy fun in the best way. It is not, however, a “hyper-realistic” thriller. It’s even worse when the film is trying to be a “hyper-realistic” thriller using an action style pulled from The Mummy. These two could be fantastic together, just drop the “realistic” from the description.

Basically, the piece of entertainment needs to give me what it promised or I’m taking my ball and going home.

2) Sheer Stupidity

This is the bad writing category, when a piece of entertainment is trying so hard to be serious that it doesn’t leave a justification open for balls to the wall style, throw our hands up and throw down, type action but goes there anyway.

It’s not so much that it’s dumb, it’s that the narrative is breaking its own rules and removing the possibility of consequences. Usually this is the classic “Sue” curse, but it can happen to any character in a piece of fiction. I don’t have any patience to read about a character running around knocking out everyone in a castle if there isn’t going to be a pay off for it later.

I’m not against self-congratulatory action sequences that show off how awesome a character is, I just want some narrative consistency to go with it and the scene to have a purpose beyond just that. I like cool fight scenes, but I also like to invest in the characters.

3) Fucking Around With The Audience

I don’t like being played with, tricked, or lied to by a piece of media I’m consuming. There’s a difference between a plot twist and actively fucking around with the audience. I’m not here for movies, novels, comics, or television shows that waste my time.

When the writer is more invested in tricking their audience than they are with telling a good story then that’s when I’m out. It gets worse when the plot twists are nonsensical.

Watching nonsensical fight scenes that exist to pad out a narrative after its run out of ideas is about as fun as watching a five year old slam their action figures together. Actually, the five year old slamming their action figures together is more interesting and the story behind the battle is often coherent.

4) Some In Universe Logic Is All I Want

Mortal Kombat is a very silly movie based on an arcade fighting game, but at least I know what the stakes are and what the participants want. The gratuitous battles make sense in the narrative, even when they don’t.

This is a companion piece to Fucking Around With The Audience but my brain checks out around the time the writer stops caring about justifying a character’s actions in universe. Or, acting in a way that goes against a character’s stated goals. If the character’s decision making cannot rise to the level of a 90s antagonist in a shounen anime then I don’t have time for them. I don’t need the reason for the fight to make sense to me, or to the other characters, I just need it to be in sync with the one starting the violence.

If a character has decided to take the most difficult path to success like knocking out every soldier in a building just to extract one person, then I’d really like that logic explained. Or, the plan was to jump in and save one guy from being attacked by a gang of seven so the protagonist decided to put the whole group into submission holds… one at a time.

However, if the stated goals of these characters are different then I could definitely see it happening.

Q: “Why did you beat up every soldier in that fortress?”

A: “Man, you know, I really hate those guys so I decided to fuck with them! Think about how stupid they’ll feel when they all wake up!”

I really can’t argue with that logic, you know.

Here’s the thing, a character doesn’t have to make the best choice or the right choice or the smart choice. They can be really goddamn dumb, and supported by their setting. The issue is when the writer tries to pretend the decision was brilliant, strategic, tactical, or anything else. That action was their character taking a hammer to a screw. It worked, but it wasn’t smart. For example: Son Goku is not the brightest bulb in the box, but the masses all over the world love him anyway.

All I’m asking for is this: “I wanted to prove myself the strongest fighter, but you dismissed my challenge. Now, I kidnapped your girlfriend and I’m threatening to kill her if you don’t give me what I want. Fight me in an acceptable duel of previously agreed upon terms, coward!”

That’s a character taking a hammer to a screw and watching characters take hammers to screws can be a lot of fun, when its supported by the narrative. Its a combat train wreck. There are entire genres built on it.

My issue is don’t try to lie to me. The motivations don’t need to make sense to me or be what I’d imagine doing, or act as any kind of insert, I just want the character’s motivations, desires, and combat style to make sense to them and be in sync with who they are.

After that, it’s all good.

just little things i love about halo
  • so many different alien races that aren’t just there for you to kill, but each with their own unique cultures and histories
  • these aliens also have dozens of characters who often get their own narrative so you see the story from their point of view, not just the human’s
  • oh did i mention also the humans are considered aliens? 
  • none of that generic “humans are the underdogs and need to prove themselves” narrative
  • just…AIs in general. though they’re not treated as people by most of the characters they’re given as much love and attention as everyone else by the writers (barring halo 5) 
  • mentally ill characters who aren’t defined by their mental illness (barring halo 5 (x2))
  • cortana’s entire character arc
  • thel’vadam’s entire character arc
  • you know what? every character arc
  • speaking of alien cultures, there’s a shitton of religion for both aliens and humans despite such a strong sci-fi setting, and without the “hurr durr religion is bad” nonsense (tho some of the religions are bad) 
  • men and women being treated equally. the only races with gender inequality are those who’re set back by the covenant’s toxic traditions, and in halo 5, you see thel'vadam working to break down those traditions by allowing sangheili women to become warriors (yay!) 
  • additionally, there’s very little romance and no sexualizing. even cortana, who’s friggin’ naked, is not defined in the least by her appearance
  • so, so, SO much lore. literally like, ten million years and more worth of lore. halo’s story has so much going on and all going way back
  • “forerunners are stupid” -  a literal trend
  • not just forerunners, though. everyone. everyone is stupid. the whole universe got fucked over because people were stupid. 
  • this was more 343 than bungie, but just the sheer amount of detail put in into the story. they could’ve easily just said “because it does” but instead went out of their way to create the science behind all of the story’s technologies. from space-travel to an AI’s exact function, everything was extremely thought-out.
  • the aesthetic - all of it. despite being a apocalypse-themed, there’s so much vibrant colors and breath-taking scenery, even the flood-based levels like cortana have a morbid beauty to them. also, giving forerunner architecture different aesthetics based off their creator’s factions was cool too. 
  • blur’s cinematics 
  • the fact halo’s extended universe branches out to all forms of media - books, multiple video game genres, anime, tv series, podcasts, comics, unfortunately still no movie but some day.
  • just…everything. even despite halo 5’s failings i found things i absolutely adored, and i think no matter what i will always love this stupid franchise so, so much.
Things That Need To Happen In The Fantastic Beasts Sequels (The Newtina Edition)

1. Newt proposing to Tina

2. Newtina wedding

3. Protective!Newtina

4. Badass Porpentina Goldstein-Scamander

5. Tina screaming “NOT MY HUSBAND YOU BITCH!” at some Grindelwald follower who shot a Cruciatus Curse at Newt, and then completely DISINTEGRATING the guy right before everyone’s eyes like Molly did with Bellatrix Lestrange (just IMAGINE IF IT WAS LETA WHO ATTACKED NEWT THO JUST IMAGINE HOW ANGRY TINA WOULD BE + THE HP/FBAWTFT PARALLELS WOULD BE ON POINT)

6. Newt coming up behind whoever’s holding Tina captive and hissing “Get away from my wife,” before punching him full in the face like Sirius did with Lucius Malfoy

7. Newt singing something at least once because EDDIE’S AMAZING SINGING SKILLS NEEDS TO BE PUT TO USE I MEAN CMON THIS GUY WAS OUTSTANDING IN LES MIS

8. Maybe Katherine doing a small duet with Eddie or something I mean just imagine how cUTE IT WOULD BE SINCE THEY CAN BOTH SING REALLY WELL

9. An “I love you” exchange

10. Newtina caring for Newt’s creatures together

11. Newt completely falling head over heels for Tina when she leads a squad of Aurors fiercely into battle and her dedication to her job

12. Tina absolutely adoring Newt’s passion for Magizoology and the gentle way he cares for his creatures

13. (WHAT IF) Tina takes up the mantle of President of MACUSA after Seraphina steps down

14. Newtina caring for Credence like he’s their son

15. Newt being jealous of Tina x Theseus

16. Tina being jealous of Newt x Leta

17. (WHAT IF) Theseus x Leta lmao

18. A role reversal of the “I’ll catch you” scene from the first movie

19. “I’m sorry I couldn’t deliver my book, the Ministry denied my request to go back…because of the whole, you know…the Obscurus massacre.”
“Hey. It’s okay. I’m just…glad you’re here now.”
“Yes, so am I. It’s very good to see you again, Tina.”
“You too, Newt.”

20. Dumbledore and Queenie being the captains of the Newtina ship

21. Queenie being absolutely infuriated because she knows they both love each other but they just won’t admit it

22. Dumbledore tearing up at the Newtina wedding

23. Awkward!Newtina with loads of fluff and being Soft™ and quiet mutual compliments

24. ANGSTY!NEWTINA BECAUSE ANGST IS THE BEST AMIRITE

25. Rebellious!Newtina, starting with Tina probably going against MACUSA’s orders and Newt, being Newt, goes with her

30. Delicate, tentative physical contact (kisses, gentle caresses to the face of hands, THE FOREHEAD TOUCH, brushing hair out of eyes, warm reassuring hugs, falling alseep in each other’s arms)

Bonus: Queenie singing a slow, gentle celebratory song after a victorious battle and Newt and Tina slow dances to it / teaches each other to dance / they start talking about what they’ll do after the war (basically like that scene from Wonder Woman where Steve and Diana are dancing after the battle of No Man’s Land)

Miguel from Coco movie

I watched this movie a couple of days ago and I must say IT’S A BEAUTIFUL MOVIE!!!! I TOTALLY LOVED IT!!! :’D

Pixar really did an amazing job. They really captured a lot of mexican culture without classic stereotypes (I just saw little one at the beggining, but it doesn’t really care). The movie has many references to mexican artists, leyends, traditions and everyday stuff. Also, I personally loved Dante, he remind me a lot to my dogs x’3

But beyond all that, the story it’s absolutely beautiful and heartwarming, specially if you lost a loved one. A lot of people complained that Coco was the same as the Book of Life, but I can assure you that both movies are very different. While Book of Life was a love story, Coco is about family. Family comes first and they will always be there for you. That’s the main lesson of this movie :’) I’m not gonna spoil you, but the end is also very touching. I couldn’t stop crying T_T

In my opinion, Coco is one of the best Pixar movies so far. So, go to watch it when it gets released on your contries. I’m sure you’re gonna love it :’D Claps for you Lee Unkrich, you did an amazing job man.

Ps: The only bad thing about Coco it’s that damn Frozen short at the beggining. Seriously, 20 minutes with Olaf as the protagonist are very frustrating and annoying >_<

Am I the only one who got really excited to not only have one BUT TWO Dia de los muertos movies

Honestly I grew up with people only celebrating the day of the dead because it was similar to Halloween, and when I went home from school my mother and father always tried to stick to tradition, leaving food and candles out for our relatives and celebrating all 3 days

So when I found out that The book of life was coming out later on in my teen years I was hyped and I absolutely love it and will probably stay as one of my favorite movies

So now, as a 16 year old girl when I saw the Coco trailer I was even happier to know that we weren’t only going to have one but TWO animated movies that explained el dia de los muertos

Two!

People are getting upset and butt hurt over things like Sugar skulls, marigolds, music and Xibalba but this is all in the culture, BoL doesn’t own any of that, it’s all in El Dia de los Muertos and since Coco is indeed a movie about El Dia de los muertos, THEY CAN USE ALL OF IT SINCE ITS IN MEXICAN CULTURE

even the creator of BoL is happy for Coco so why can’t you be happy that my culture is finally getting recognized on a deeper level?

All Yours (M)
