i don't think he's seen that movie

not to be a soft ass bitch, but eddie changing “loser” to “lover” on his cast is some of the purest shit i’ve ever seen and 27 years are added to my life every time i think about it

my fave parts in beauty and the beast:

  • gaston dragging agathe in front of the whole town and then just going like ‘no offense agathe’
  • when lefou asked gaston whether he seriously wanted to be part of belle’s family
  • “is that fair?” - “i don’t care”
  • when gaston told belle that she just had to find the right man and she was all like ‘it’s a small village i’ve met everyone’ like what kind of savage
  • “BE FREE!” iconic
  • lefou spelling gaston’s name
  • beast dragging belle for her taste in shakespeare
  • belle holding back tears when she’s in the library for the first time honestly same
  • lefou’s smile upon realizing that maurice was still alive
  • “there’s a beast running wild, there’s no question, but i fear the wrong monster’s released”
  • maestro cadenza going “ouch” when gaston ditches lefou
  • when chip apologized to maurice for moving and maurice was just like ‘it’s alright’ and then he fucking bolted
  • luke evans singing
  • EVERMORE
  • “too much?” - “…yep”
  • belle teaching that little girl how to read
  • “i didn’t think she would say yes!”
  • when everyone was changed back

so did he just have those glasses ready to go or what

There was one part where we jump on a wire, and Chris fell one time and dropped out of frame somewhere, and I didn’t know where he went. There’s that scene where we blast through the two doors, and at one point, we couldn’t even get through them, and I was like, ‘Oh, here’s America’s hope! We can’t even break through a door.’

Alex, I've seen people say that the Russo favor Tony as a character and I wanted to laugh Like? Wasn't a great issue last year because RDJ had to put condition about doing CW and one of them was that he could have a word about Tony's scenes? God, imagine what it would have been that already bad written movie without him Look what they did to Wanda and poor Ms Olsen. The Russo don't favor Tony, they favor Steve. The first thing that they said about the next movie was about him and Bucky

So, I tried to answer this on mobile but my phone screwed it up, so this is probably going to be slightly less elegant, cause repeating myself.

I have not seen (or at least I don’t think I have seen) anything the Russo Brothers directed outside of Civil War. So everything I know about their directing style is based on this one movie.

However, the Russo brothers said in the Infinity Wars teaser that the reason for Civil War, was to set up Infinity Wars. That’s not a good reason to make a movie, if any of you write fics (and I know some of you do) when you start with an ending and try and work up to it, the characters don’t behave, and by the time your done you’ve had to force them into that situation in a way that seems awkward and unnatural. It muddles everyone’s motivations, and ideas. You can alter the ending to fit better with the direction the story took, or shoehorn it into the ending you originally wanted. It seems pretty obvious the Russo Brothers, shoehorned.

This means that their characters are a mess.

Wanda before the Russo Brothers took over, was a dark character, at the end of AoU she was on her way to being redeemed. (Sloppily but it could have gone somewhere had the Russo Brothers worked on her arc.) Despite that she is still shown as an adult, maybe a bit confused and in need of some guidance (re. clint) but still a grown woman with incredible powers. 

Then We have Russo Wanda, Ms. ‘He locked me in my Room’, just a kid. Rather than the sloppy redemption arc we had at the end of AoU which could have been built on, we get ‘nothing is her fault, because she’s just a kid’ which is so incredibly lazy. They made her look physically softer, lighter hair, lighter make up, as if that counted as a redemption. It’s so lazy, ugh.


Then we have ‘Captain’ Steve Rogers, the man out of time.

While his actions in Civil War are understandable, defending his best friend, and the last link to his past. They aren’t in character. This is the man who kept going when his best friend fell, who values justice over his own life, and who understands the necessity of collateral damage in some situations. This is a man who should have accepted Tony’s offer to compromise with the guarantee of Bucky’s safety. 

He’s out of character. Even though he is the Russo’s clear favorite, his motivations are made understandable.


Then we have Tony, now remember this is a Captain America movie, which makes Cap’s opposition the bad guy in the story, even if they aren’t a bad person. That was compounded on by Clint and Scott, who seemed to be present mainly for numbers, and to call Tony Evil, and without a conscious. It’s definitely Robert Downey Jr. that saves Tony from being the Bad Guy.

His acting, the way he show’s Tony’s anger and his pain is absolutely incredible. The writing attempts to make Tony the bad guy every scene RDJ isn’t in paints him as evil, but every one he is in paints him as a beautiful flawed character with a depth of emotions. 


One other Pet Peeve I have about this movie. 

This entire scene but specifically the fact that Bucky has a vibranium arm, yes, it can deflect bulets, but when multiple people are shooting at you from different angles your arm is not going to block all of the bullets. It doesn’t make any sense.

Anyways, Tl.dr The Russo Brothers did a shitty job with all of the characters in Civil War.

i just thought of a klance lafluff and raced to tumblr to tell you ahahaha. Have you ever seen the Martian? There's a scene where one astronaut is heading out to space and his love interest puts a little kiss on the glass of his helmet, but then gets embarrassed and says "That was stupid. Don't tell anyone I did that." He blushes and responds "Don't tell anyone I liked it." and i just :o :O

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

At my pillow pet: AAAH

DUDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! 

Okay, so, yeah, I saw like half of that movie? I think? Idk why, ANYWAYS, SO! 

I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THAT SCENE??? OH MY GOSH justjustjusjtuSJUTJSUT IMAGINE, RECENT KLANCEWHO JUST GOT INTO A RELATIONSHIP: 

A hand grabs him by thw wrist and Lance’s turn back to meet Keith’s. 

“Kei -” the word dies on his throat when he sees Keith stepping forward, eyes narrowed in detemrination and takeshis blue helmet from his hands.

Lance can only watch as Keith looks up at him almost shyly before he offers a soft smile and drops a quick kiss on the top of his helmet, eyes never leaving Lance’s. 

It’s suddendly too hot in his armor. 

One, two, three ticks in silence and then Keith’s expression falls, lower lip getting caught by his teeth nervously.

“Oh, no, that was embarassing, wasn’t it? Oh no, okay, that’s fine, just - Oh my god, just hush about it, not a word, Lance, just…forget about it, ‘kay?”

Lance blinks. One, two, three times before he literally has to softly sap himself on the cheek to react. “Uh, yeah, yeah, uh… no, wait no, defenitly not forget, no,I just…uh, yeah, wait…uh.”

Keith frowns in confusion but then he sees it. He sees Lance’s flushed face, his bright wide eyes, the strong heartbeat echoing from where he hold the brunet’s wrist. 

Keith smiles and leans forward, this time more confident and daring. 

“Don’t tell anyone I did this.” Keith whispers under his voice before dropping a kiss on Lance’s forehead.

Lance’s heart does a sharp flip before he let’s out a breathless laugh and leans closer to his boyfriend’s face. “Please, tell everyone I loved it.” 

Gah, I’m sorry, I just….god, I’m having emotions and feelings all in one and it’s not fair. Sorry for the typos, that was just like a quick scene to the point. 

But ANYWAYS, LMAO BRO, I APPRECIATE SO MUCH THAT YOU CMERUNNING TO SHARE THIS WITH ME???

GOD, I WISH MORE PPL DID THAT. I LOVE IT WHEN PPDL SHARE THEIR HEACCNONS. BC WE BOOOOOOOOND.

Tony Goldwyn in Nixon part 2 [part 1] | [video]

anonymous asked:

Hi I realize this is late but what is your opinion on the whole Phil-not-discussing-politics-and-not-discussing-moonlight drama? I saw you reblogged from one of the blogs that was super angry about it? Don't you think it's a bit harsh to expect him to talk about every social issue even in the movies he watches for fun? Idk. I feel like people can never be happy with Phil, they're always looking for reasons to criticize him. But I would like to hear your thoughts.

I haven’t seen Moonlight so i don’t feel like I can make a personal comment on the movie or worth of his opinion on it, but I’ll make a few points about the situation in general as I see it: 

- It’s not uncommon for someone to identify with the struggle portrayed in a movie when they see it as representation. To have someone view something you consider representation (of you, or just the kind of struggle you feel strongly about) as boring with little further in the way of explanation can feel like a personal rejection. 

- It’s not that people expect him to talk about “every social issue even in the movies he watches for fun” - it’s that the actual plot of this particular movie was a social issue and he neglected to even glancingly acknowledge that. The fact that Dan spoke about it and did acknowledge the social issue and importance just puts Phil in a slightly worse light by comparison. 

- It’s a sign of a bigger issue people have with Phil. We don’t know that he values the struggle that POC and the LGBTQ community go through, so it’s harder to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume by ‘it’s boring’ he meant ‘I recognize the weight of the film and what it represents, I just found the storytelling slow’. We don’t know enough to cut him slack because he doesn’t talk about it. 

- Phil doesn’t talk about anything he values beyond a shallow surface layer of things that relate directly to himself. To paraphrase @europeansoul in a conversation I was in earlier, we know he’s passionate about his family, his career, his partner. We do not hear Phil talk passionately about anything outside of his immediate life and circumstances. Does that mean he doesn’t care about social issues? We don’t know. Are we obligated to assume the best of him because we’re fans? I sure as hell hope not. Down that way lies blind adoration and I’m not here for that. 

- His channel is about telling stories that make people happy. He’s under no obligation to go any deeper than that. In fact, I generally appreciate that he doesn’t because it’s a nice bit of a mental break from the world. But as much as it is his choice to keep us in the dark about how he feels about social issues and reject using his platform to spread awareness, it is the choice of his viewers to appreciate or not appreciate that. 

- It’s ok to criticize people you’re a fan of.  It’s ok to criticize people you’re a fan of.

I don't know if anyone has thought of this before but in a parentlock type situation, Sherlock would watch tons of kids movies with Rosie, which means he would have seen The Bee movie at some point. Imagining him being super excited about a movie about bees then huffing and critiquing it the whole time while John flicks his ear or something to shut him up is hilarious to me. Also, now that I'm thinking about Sherlock watching kids movies I'm wondering who his fav Disney princess is. Maybe Belle?

ADFASCASFSADASD NONNY OMG. Listen, I’m not big on parentlock but totally can see this ASDFASDF.

And then he’s criticizing the logistics of the whole movie, LOL. We all know Sherlock secretly wants to be a disney princess, and he was waiting for his prince to come (ie. JOHN). Hmm, I dunno which princess he would like? Maybe Belle, because she’s so brilliant and doesn’t take shit from anyone… though I think maybe also Merida because he loves her no-nonsense approach to life and her desire for freedom and her taking the initiative to take control of her own future. Hee hee.

Hmmm! What d’yall think?

MTVS Epic Rewatch #180

BTVS 7x02 Beneath You

Stray thoughts

1) I’ve always got some strong Run Lola Run vibes from the opening scene of this episode…

It’s the setting, the music, the pace, the fact that the girl is – duh! – running, and her look and outfit. It’s all very Run Lola Run, right?

So, do you think this was an homage to the movie, plagiarism, or Joss’s idea of what Germany is like based simply on one movie he’d seen?

That aside, these scenes bring up a lot of questions about how potential slayers are treated in other countries. We know that Kendra was raised and educated as a potential slayer, knowing that one day she may become one. I think Kennedy was, too. We also know that Buffy and Faith weren’t. But the two girls shown in the opening scenes from episodes 7x01 and 7x02 seem to be aware they should run away and they’re not asking for help in the regular way any citizens would do, you know? Like, they’re not screaming for help or going to the police? So it kind of feels they knew what their deal was and why they were being chased…

It’s all the more interesting because Buffy was having a prophetic (or live action?) dream about the German girl. I’ve always loved Buffy’s prophetic dreams, and I wish her connection to other slayers through her dreams would’ve been explored more in depth in the show.

anonymous asked:

I'm the Wanda anon :) I'm finding I agree with a lot of what you said, like ppl not allowing her chances like they do other characters, and the dehumanisation I suppose too, though I don't get heavily involved in fandom discourse so I haven't seen much of it. That said, she changes sides during the movie yes but only bc she and her brother were going to die not bc of others' deaths. When she caused the Hulk's rampage, she didn't care then. She changes after the battle, I wish they’d shown it1/2

2/2 I guess that’s what ff is for. In addition as far as Tony goes, though I think he’s irrelevant here, you could argue he makes Ultron as a result of what Wanda does to him. Is Bruce responsible for the deaths of those ppl? If not, Tony can’t be held any more responsible. They both react to what Wanda does, and she played on their worst fears. I think we forgive the others more bc they start as heroes, you know? We don’t know their crimes in detail, I’m talking movieverse here btw, not comics.

Yeah, I’m sorry anon, I still think you’re reaching. She changes sides when she realizes Ultron is going to wipe out humanity, yes, but it’s incredibly cynical to think the only thing she cares about is “oh, I’ll die too” considering we see her and Pietro both going out of their way a lot to rescue civilians, such as in the whole train sequence – which is not necessary just to stop Ultron. If all either of the twins cared about was stopping him to save their own skins, they wouldn’t have actively risked their lives and been willing to die (Pietro sacrificing his life to save Clint and a child, and Wanda very nearly dying too.) To treat them as callous monsters requires ignoring the bulk of their actual characterization. 

Wanda gives Bruce a vision that prompts him to hulk out, yes. It sucks, yes, and it was a bad thing. I wholeheartedly agree. (And frankly think the whole Hulkbuster sequence is dumb and pointless and slows the plot and shouldn’t have been in the movie, but that’s a separate rant focused more on technical flaws of the film.) But a LOT of people have pushed Bruce to hulk out over the years, so if your argument here is that Wanda should be tried for enacting Ultron’s plan to cause Hulk’s rampage, so should everyone else who has ever prompted him to Hulk out. This is one of her bigger mistakes, agreed, and she isn’t there to witness the aftermath – or I think she would have changed sides sooner, because we see how Wanda reacts to seeing suffering up close and personal. 

Also, we see perfectly well how crappy both Tony and Thor are before their redemption arcs, so your argument there is kinda moot. We see Tony brag about the Jericho missiles, and Thor go on a gleeful killing spree, destroying even more of Utgard than Hulk does of the city in AOU. Yet you forgive them both, easily. 

Finally, I don’t know if you’re trolling here, but why is Wanda responsible for Tony’s choices?

Tony is a grown, adult man, with free will. Wanda gave him a vision of a possibility of things going bad. Tony, and Tony alone, made decisions based on that vision. If Tony had been to a fortune teller, seen an apocalypse movie, or had a particularly bad dream, he might have gotten a similar “what if” scenario – and had just as much free will when it came to his subsequent actions. Wanda did not control his will after the fact, did not influence his choices. Tony decided that the response to a scary, manufactured vision based on his fears and not an actual look into the future was to be reckless with his tech for the sake of ‘protection.’ Tony built Ultron. Tony played god. Tony made his choices, and Wanda did not make them for him. And if you will recall, Bruce was opposed to using the scepter to make Ultron and Tony didn’t listen. The choice to be reckless was Tony’s.

(Shit, if you wanna play the secondhand blame game, why not say Tony is responsible back at the start since his bomb was what killed Wanda’s family, driving her to Strucker, who gave her the powers she then used to put the vision in Tony’s head that lead him to make Ultron? We can go back and forth with ‘who influenced who’ all day.)

To blame Wanda for Tony’s choices and hold her to a greater level of responsibility for Tony’s actions than Tony is held reeks of misogyny. Not to mention how people zero in on Wanda alone and never blame Pietro, despite the two of them acting in tandem. And to anyone who feels the need to scapegoat Wanda and then make myriad excuses that don’t hold water for why the rules apply to her and not to anyone else; I invite you to sit down and have a long, introspective look at your own biases, especially when it comes to the standards you hold women to over men, both in fiction and in reality. There’s a lot of misogyny in our societies that we carry over into our interactions in fandom, and we owe it to ourselves and to everyone else to take that long, hard, uncomfortable look at ourselves and our reasons for being shit to certain characters, and consider if we’re being the kind of person the heroic characters we love would be able to be proud of.

I don't know why everyone thinks Allura has to be 19 cause they called her a teen. They called Shiro a teen along with the other paladins and he's 25

Allura could be 63 and i wouldn’t care

it’s like in Lord of the Rings ( its been forever since ive seen those movies so i forget everyones name alskjdf) but i remember the elf princess fell in love with that one guy, and her father warned her that humans live shorter, and she would still look young and beautiful while the love of her life died long before she would. But if i remember correctly she continued to love him anyways?? damn i gotta read the books.

Anyways, we don’t know much about the aging of alteans officially, but they are definitely elf like creatures, and i’ve seen lots of head canons and theories that would agree with that. 

but hey man i’m down for 19-10,000 years old for allura u go girl mama loves you

and whoops yeah to touch on shiro being grouped as one of the teens in the shows description, it does feel weird why they would do that. but also what else could they have said? “ a group of teenagers and 2 adults go on an adventure”.

Heya!! I am about to embark on my first ever Johnny Depp movie marathon!!! I was wondering if you could tell me a little bit about the absolutely essential JD movies (obviously I would love to watch them all but I only have 3 days or so). Like in your opinion what are the funniest, happiest, saddest ones???? (I don't think I've ever seen a Johnny movie with like a proper crying scene, I've seen Crybaby but I mean something more realistic). Thanks in advance for your help!!! xx

YES OKAY YES WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE

Okay, so here’s my recommendations, organized into categories! Each category is organized in the order of my personal preferences.

The only film where he legitimately cries is in The Man Who Cried (he…. is the man who cried). There’s also a moment in The Libertine, and I believe in The Brave.

Funny films:

  • Mortdecai
  • Once Upon A Time in Mexico (not a comedy, but still actually hilarious and Johnny’s part, while he’s playing a ‘serious’ character, his part is mostly comedic and mostly due to his character choices!)

Dramatic:

  • Blow
  • Public Enemies
  • Black Mass
  • Donnie Brasco

Sad:

  • Finding Neverland
  • Chocolat

If You Want to Understand Johnny Depp:

  • Edward Scissorhands (is the pivotal film in his career and is required watching if you haven’t already!)
  • The Libertine (I’d say with 99% certainty that this film is one he poured his heart and soul into the most)
  • Ed Wood
  • Benny and Joon
  • What’s Eating Gilbert Grape
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (the film that changed his life, for better and worse, but Jack is the love of his life.)
  • The Lone Ranger (deeply personal film for him.)
  • Rango (seems super random but if you look closely there is a LOT of him in Rango. Also it’s just a great film.)

Anidala Week, Day 2: Favorite Anidala Scene

There’s a little bit of a funny story behind this one. Or, well, because of this one. I uploaded a WIP of this to my Instagram account, and there are a few of my coworkers who follow me. One of them is a poet and a pretty romantic guy, and he’s always fun to talk to. He told me at work the next day that he liked what I’d drawn, and I could tell he liked the whole romantic aspect of it. One problem – he didn’t seem to get that it was from Star Wars.

“You know I didn’t make this up right?” I told him. “It’s from Star Wars.”

He looked a little shocked. “They talk like that in Star Wars? They actually say ‘I love you’?”

“’I love you’ ‘I know’?” I said. “That’s a whole thing, that’s a famous line!”

“Really?”

What ensued was at least an 45 minute conversation/argument over Star Wars. He even tried to convince me that Jyn Erso (Rogue One being the only SW movie he’s seen – but he told me he fell asleep in the theater!) was a Jedi because she was on the good side. I tried, in vain, to tell him otherwise. He wasn’t having it.

But I guess he’ll have to find all this out for himself when he watches them. He’ll (hopefully) understand how the Force works, what a Jedi is, and that Star Wars is all about love. 

I think he’ll like them.

I swear I read something similar about stuff Chris said months ago. Either that or I've got serious deja vu. It's just kinda hilarious to think about dnp having girlfriends that they didn't take on vacation, don't go to the movies with, and are never seen in public with. What a great relationship. (Also, do they even talk to Chris? I don't feel like he has any insight to their lives. They barely even do anything with pj anymore)

I mean, like five weeks ago Chris confirmed that Dan and Phil will be getting married in five years, and then talked about chaos theory affecting the date. So if anyone really does want to consider Chris an authority on Dan and Phil then just go with selective hearing and find his Aug 14 livestream.

how would you interpret akira? because sometimes i think i know what it's getting at and sometimes i don't!

to me, and please note that i have never read the manga, it’s about how youths stick together under the actions of corrupt authority figures. there’s riots and protests constantly seen throughout the movie, and even if kaneda is a delinquent shithead teen, he still emerges as a hero and he constantly cares about his friends: he doesn’t want anyone to kill tetsuo but himself, and he risks his life crashing yamagata’s motorcycle purely for a ritualistic sendoff, the blue psychic children also have a really strong friendship.

i think there’s a lot of stuff too about what it means to be alive and a human too, tetsuos powers are described as being primordial and amoeba-like

I don’t think you are, he was referring to the movie Memento, at one point, which is the story about a guy whose short-term memory isn’t functional anymore after an accident (I think? I haven’t seen it), so it could be a reference to this? - Mod Lily
