i have unapologetic feels for this movie

i just want a Person™. someone where there is a mutual attraction between the two of us. someone who i can trust wholeheartedly and vent to them on facetime at 3 in the morning. that “sneak out through the window” relationship. someone to sit on a rooftop and observe the night sky with. someone who will get unapologetically drunk and high with me. someone to make love to. to goof around with. to take late night drives with no true destination with. to have a real life cliche trying on weird sunglasses and hats in a movie montage with. to order food in the middle of the night and just pig out with. to foolishly slow dance in the living room with. to travel the world with. someone who understands me. someone to give my whole heart and have it treated kindly for once. just Someone. i think i deserve that

That post is super important about all kinds of different movies and shows. Like people always wanna have an artsy academy award winning movie as their fave movie, but my fave movie is The Devil Wears Prada because of how happy it makes me feel. I wish people would just love things unapologetically

Right? Sometimes you just have to love what you love and tune out the people who try to bring you down. ❤️

Snowbaz -Who is the little spoon? -Who is the one that adores Disney movies?

Hmm I guess since Baz is apparently 3 inches taller than Simon, I’d say Simon is the little spoon. And Baz is a huge softie so I feel like he’s a hopeless romantic and hyper Disney fan and after he starts dating Simon, is unapologetic about it, making Simon watch all of them just to have an excuse to snuggle up with his boyfriend to watch the cute movies together.

Sometimes I get rly emotional about being trans bc like I’m 7 months on hrt and I still feel like I don’t pass but I then the other day I was at the movies and I saw someone who the last time I talked to was almost a full year ago and she asked if it was me bc she didn’t even recognize me and subs at school that don’t know me think I’m lying to them when I say here during attendance and I forget how far I’ve actually made it

and then I watch older trans masc youtubers who have been on t for 10 yrs and had top surgery who talk about their past feelings and fears about transitioning and I’m like … fuck god I can’t wait to be there too and I feel so much happier now that I look more the way I want to and all the bad feelings I used to feel, I’m feeling less and less and I remember how sick I used to get looking at my own body and now I just don’t even care being naked in my own room it’s just really emotional for me to think that I’m actually starting to be happy again bc it’s been so long

I don't know if you've ever said it elsewhere, but why do you like/love Catwoman so much (as well as the BatCat ship)?

Not sure if I have answered this, so thanks for asking!

Catwoman is one of those characters I grew up with, so I have a lot of love for her. I watched her in the animated shows and in Batman Returns, etc. Really, Catwoman had more of a place in my childhood than even Wonder Woman did. So part of my love for her is through nostalgia. I’ve always thought she was so cool and loved her costume and her relationship with Batman. I liked how funny she was, that she wasn’t intimidated by Batman, and she was an ass kicker in her own right. I even shipped her with Batman before I even knew what shipping was. I just knew they were supposed to be together.

Going beyond the nostalgia factor, I still loved her as I got older. I could appreciate her more in movies like Batman Returns. Her characterization in that movie can be debated, but I’ve always loved her in it. Then I was so excited to hear she would be in The Dark Knight Rises, and I do love Anne Hathaway and it was great to see her in the role. Anne once said something about how she always wanted to be Catwoman, even as a kid, and I totally feel the same way. I wanted to have that confidence and intelligence when I was younger, and I still want to be Catwoman. 

I’ve always loved how she is unapologetically sexy. Has that been written badly sometimes? Sure. But as a kid I’m glad I got to see a sexy character who doesn’t find shame in sex. There’s more to her than sex, but I’ve always loved that aspect of her because women, especially from the time she was created, were often ridiculed for being that way. But I dare anyone to call Catwoman a “slut” or a “whore.”

She’s also morally ambiguous, which I always eat up when it’s a female character. We don’t get to be anti heroes a lot. She’s not evil. She’s just out for herself. Like she said in The Dark Knight Rises “A girl’s gotta eat.” But there’s also more to her than that, as Bruce sees, and I’ll get into why I ship them so much but it’s partially because of that. He always knows there’s more than just a criminal to her, and he’s right. She may pretend she doesn’t care, but when it comes down to life or death, she will go back to Batman and save him because she’s not a bad person or a coward. She’d just never admit to being a hero. It’s easier for her to think she’s a bad guy.

So I just touched on why I ship Batcat so much, his believing in her and always seeing the good in her is a part of that. 

but she doesn’t let him down is the thing. She comes back and saves him! He really does bring out the best of her and vice versa. This scene was very nicely paralleled in Gotham. They’re just children in that show, but they write their relationship very faithfully:

For some reason, she actually cares what he thinks. She doesn’t want to let him down. When she’s around him, she doesn’t want to be just a criminal, and if that’s not love, I don’t know what it is. Love should make you want to be a better person, and that’s exactly what Batcat is.

What’s important whenever discussing Batcat is to understand just how alike they are. They do not fall under the “opposites attract” trope at all. They’re almost too much alike to work and yet they do. I think they’re two people who have to be with someone who is like them. They’re both seriously damaged people who have been through a lot of hell. This has driven both of them to dress up in weird outfits and go out at night and beat people up. There aren’t a lot of other people like him. You could argue that it wouldn’t be healthy for them to be together, because they’re so alike, but to me, they understand each other better than anyone else ever could.

This brings me to my next point, they make each other happy. It might not seem like that at times, but some of the only joy these two have in their lives is each other. They’re both miserable in their own ways, but despite that, they find happiness together. They see someone who is like them. You’re never gonna see Bruce genuinely smile as much as when he’s around Selina. He acts unaffected by her banter, but he lives for those moments, I’m telling you. We joke about how Bruce is never happy, but around Selina, he is happy.

For god’s sake, at the end of The Dark Knight Rises, he lives happily ever after with Selina, and he couldn’t look happier about it. She also looks so happy and at peace. SHE’S WEARING HIS MOTHER’S PEARLS IN THIS SCENE. 

They are soul mates, through and through. They are so alike. They make each other happy. They make each other want to be better. He actually trusted her with his secret identity. They love each other.

I can’t wait to see what they do with Batcat in the DCEU, because they are an OTP to end all OTPs.

Bajirao Mastani: SLB’s best work yet in classic SLB style

Quick synopsis: Brave and powerful warrior Bajirao is asked to help win a battle for another King and meets his lovely daughter Mastani in the process. She falls madly in love, but there are two problems: She is Muslim…and he is already wed.

  • Let’s just get out of the way the promise that if you do not see this movie in theaters you’ll regret it for the rest of your life. Because I can proudly and confidently say that it is the most dazzling and elaborate Bollywood film I have ever seen in terms of sets and costumes. Like W O W
  • There were times I literally laughed out loud in the theater because I was so enthralled by the visuals.

tbh though, becoming more ‘in touch’ with my emotions or whatever over the last several years has been amazing. I have become a much less tense person and feel more comfortable loving the people I love and it’s amazing.

also good for crying during movies, unapologetically shoveling comfort food onto friends, not being an unkempt unfeeling robot ass

Hawkeye in Civil War (spoilers)

One of the things I loved about Civil War was Clint’s characterization. I feel like CW explored his personality in a way other marvel films haven’t been able to achieve.

He understands that perhaphs he’s the most underpowered one on the team and still unapologetically kicks ass without giving a single fuck.

One of my favorite scenes in the movie is when Tony visits the underwater jail and Clint just loses it and calls him out on this bs civil war.

I feel like CW shows a side of hawkeye we hadn’t seen on screen before. He’s shown as a badass who doesn’t give a fuck about not having powers and still kicks ass while voicing his opinions on everyone’s bs and I’m loving it

New Alex interview with The Guardian Guide (October 1-7, 2016)!

Alexander Skarsgård: ‘I still wake up shivering in the foetal position’

He’s equally at home in The Legend Of Tarzan as he is a twisted cop in War On Everyone. So why is the sweary Swede having an existential crisis?

by Kevin EG Perry

Afew years ago, Alexander Skarsgård turned up at a Hammarby football match in Stockholm noticeably… what’s a polite way of putting this? Worse for wear? “I was shitfaced,” says Skarsgård. “I went up in front of the crowd and started doing this chant. Someone put it on YouTube. I’m very drunk, going: ‘You fucking cunts, listen to me!’ I thought: ‘This is real embarrassing.’”

During the bleak hangover that followed, the 40-year-old Swedish actor thought he might have torpedoed a career that had just seen him get the part of Tarzan in this summer’s blockbuster. In fact it made him an even more perfect fit for the role. “Warner Bros had said they needed someone primal and animalistic,” he says. “So my agent sent them the video, saying: ‘Isn’t this motherfucker primal enough for you?’”

Another one of the half-million people who watched it was John Michael McDonagh, writer-director of The Guard and Calvary, who was on the lookout for a hard-drinking detective for his pitch-black buddy comedy War On Everyone. “He saw the video and went: ‘That’s the guy,’” says Skarsgård. “It got me the job. The moral of the story is: Make a fool of yourself and people will love you. Remember that, kids.”

When we meet around midday in the lobby of the Hotel Normandy during the Deauville American film festival, it seems he’s taken his own lesson to heart. The previous night he was so smashed that he invaded the DJ booth at War On Everyone’s afterparty and proved that while you can take the man out of Sweden… “I played strictly Abba,” he says. “When in doubt, Lay All Your Love On Me. We closed that place down.”

As he concertinas himself into the back of a people carrier for the two-hour drive to Charles de Gaulle airport, sheltering his eyes behind dark shades, it’s somehow reassuring to know that savage hangovers afflict even movie stars who’ve been blessed with the sort of face that led Ben Stiller to cast him in Zoolander so he could ask him: “Did you ever think there’s more to life than being really, really, really ridiculously good-looking?”

Skarsgård has been figuring out an answer to that ever since. He starred as a brooding, topless vampire in HBO’s True Blood, which ran for seven years until 2014, and made him a pin-up and earned him a legion of fans who’d approach wanting nothing more than to get bitten. (He never did. You bite one fan…) Simultaneously, the show’s success gave him the opportunity to play odd parts in indie films that didn’t trade on his looks. In coming-of-age-in-the-70s film The Diary Of A Teenage Girl, he was the mustachioed creep who slept with his girlfriend’s daughter; in Melancholia’s dreamlike apocalypse he was an earnest, cuckolded newlywed; and in next year’s Duncan Jones-directed Mute he’ll play a silent Amish character. “It’s not about wanting to show I’m versatile,” he explains. “It’s just feeling that excitement of not knowing who a character is but figuring it out and finding him.”

Yet he was back with his pecs out this summer for The Legend Of Tarzan, a blockbuster that, like many in 2016, struggled at the box office. He says he was drawn in by the character’s search for a place in the world and impressed by Harry Potter director David Yates’s ability to make a £140m film feel “intimate”. But it was in some ways a change of scale. “I work mostly in independent movies so the scope of Tarzan was definitely different,” Skarsgård says. “I didn’t feel pressured [by the box office demands] though. It wasn’t like: ‘Oh fuck, this is a big movie.’ It was an incredible experience, but it was also nine months of just gym, work and bed. I didn’t have a sip of alcohol. It was robotic.”

Which explains the appeal of War On Everyone, a film in which he both downs and takes shots in every direction. Skarsgård plays Terry, a perma-drunk, Glen Campbell-obsessed, unapologetically corrupt detective partnered with the lightning-witted Bob, played by The Martian’s Michael Peña. It’s the old bad cop/worse cop routine, but laced with fierce cleverness. Where Shane Black’s The Nice Guys were bumbling dunces, McDonagh’s pair trade wisecracks peppered with esoteric references to everyone from Simone de Beauvoir to realist painter Andrew Wyeth.

Their cocaine-fuelled romp takes them through an Albuquerque inexplicably peopled with Quaker bank robbers and burqa-wearing tennis players as the duo go in search of a missing million dollars and that most evil villain of all: a member of the English upper class. It’s wildly irreverent, the tone set by an opening scene in which the pair try to knock down a mime (to see if he’ll make a sound). Likewise, McDonagh’s script lives up to its name by making puckish jokes on any subject you care to think of. Skarsgård, hunching his lean frame into a stoop, relishes it.

“It’s so un-PC, it’s so me,” says Skarsgård. “You could tell John didn’t give a fuck about anything, which I found refreshing in a script. I’d read a couple of comedies but nothing that was fun or intelligent enough. When I got this script and it was dark and twisted and weird and completely out there, I was excited.” And besides, he adds, “[John is] a beautiful soul, which helps when you insult everyone.”

He even sees some similarities between his dirty detective and the king of the swingers. “As with Tarzan, there’s dichotomy in the character between being a civilised man and a beast. That’s something we can all relate to. We live in a civilised society, but 12 hours ago we were beasts dancing to Abba.”

Skarsgård has spent his life caught between different worlds: blockbusters and indies, Sweden and the States. During his bohemian upbringing he wanted to be like his friends’ dads who wore suits and drove Saabs. When Skarsgård was 20, his own father Stellan found international fame in Lars von Trier’s Breaking The Waves, and they would go on to appear together for Von Trier in Melancholia. However, when Alexander was growing up his father was simply an eccentric thespian with a penchant for walking around nude. “He was a weird Bergman actor. A 12-year-old kid doesn’t give a fuck about that,” says Skarsgård. “He’d be walking around naked or wearing weird Moroccan robes. As a teenager you’re just like: ‘Come on, dad!’”

The young Skarsgård’s first taste of fame was his own. His appearance at the age of 12 in TV film The Dog That Smiled made him a child star, but he soon found he hated the attention and quit acting. “I was desperate to be normal and blend in,” he says. He saw his chance at a life on the straight-and-narrow by enrolling in the Swedish military at 19, “unheard of” in his family. “That was my way to rebel,” he says.

Afterwards, still in search of himself, he decided to head to university in the UK. But he swerved London to find a more authentic British experience, and enrolled at Leeds Met. “It doesn’t get more British than a northern, working-class town,” he says. “There was a club called the Majestic where they had student nights and it was a pound a pint. We lived in Headingley, near the pubs on the Otley Run. Uni was a bullshit excuse for being there. I was studying British culture. I loved it.”

Deciding at 20 that he may have been a little hasty quitting acting, it was while visiting Stellan in LA that he won his small part in Zoolander – at his first Hollywood audition – but it was a false dawn. It would be another seven years before he got a major role, and he spent the time in between shuttling between theatres and coffee shops. When he was cast in David Simon and Ed Burns’s Iraq miniseries Generation Kill, he spent a month convinced he was about to be sacked. “It was only after four or five weeks I realised they weren’t going to recast,” he says. “Before that all I could think about was how much it would cost them to reshoot the big fight scenes after they fired me.”

Imposter syndrome is a common feeling – although a little hard to believe from a handsome, 6ft 4in movie star. “That shit doesn’t change,” he assures me. “I felt like that on Tarzan. I was on set thinking: ‘When is the director going to come over and say: Dude, you can go home. We’ve got Tarzan here now.’ That was 10 years after Generation Kill.”

Alexander Skarsgård, then: just like the rest of us. Fond of a pub crawl, obnoxious at sporting events, constantly waiting for that tap on the shoulder telling him the jig is up. So life is still pretty much the same when you’re really, really, really ridiculously good-looking?

“I mean, fuck, I still wake up shivering in the foetal position,” he says. “I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunities I get. Getting drunk on someone else’s dime listening to Abba is brilliant, but my life is still shit. I’m still agonising. What the fuck am I doing with my life? Where do I belong? Who gives a fuck? Let me assure you, it doesn’t get any better.”

War On Everyone is in cinemas from Friday

University - Chapter Twenty Two

Multi-chapter AU: Grace and Hannah meet during their first year of university. Please start at the beginning otherwise this will make no sense at all.

Grace wakes up somewhere she’s never slept before. She almost laughs out loud upon realizing that she’s also never felt more comfortable. She stares at a blank white wall, boring. It’s an exact foil of what’s behind her.

Hannah’s arms, Hannah’s head, Hannah.

She feels a little stirring behind her and smiles. A kiss is pressed to the back of Grace’s head sweetly.

The First Time You Realize Your Father Has Moved On

(After Melissa Newman-Evans)

The First Time

                You realize

                                Your father has moved on

                                You are relieved.

The second time

          You realize

                                Your father has moved on

                                You are happy.

That something else

                                Other than memories of your mother’s face

                                Has kept him occupied

But, the third time

                You realize

                Your father has moved on.

It seems that he had no intention

Of taking his three children with him.

Your father and his new girlfriend,

are getting pretty serious.

A lot more serious than the one before her.

This relationship,

Makes you sit up in your seat.

The kind of serious that got you ready to run

for family portraits to guarantee yourself a spot.

He calls her honey

And baby,

Sweetheart.

Your mother was only good enough for Vicky.

When he hold his new girlfriend’s hand,

It is soft.

When he is with her,

he is soft.

The fourth time,

He has taken your rooms at his new house

And made them theirs.

He tells you it’s because “you are never here”

You

Question,

                If they were ever meant for you in the first place.

The fifth time looks like no invitation to the movies

Wisconsin Dells

                                                Your Grandmother’s House

You do not have first dibs.

Family is hard to say.

Feels like barbed-wire on the inside of your cheek.

He is unapologetic about how much he loves her.

So much so, that your conversations feel like

Three way.

You are

step child.

The 11th time

You realize

Your father has

moved on

Your father ends conversations with

“Best of luck”

“I wish you the best”

“I hope life is treating you well”

He has mistaken you as long distance cousin.

The twenty-fifth time looks like

All of them and all of your dad’s time

                                The dad you never got.

                The most recent time looks like

                                A marriage proposal

                                A forced smile

                                A new family

An unapologetically  jealous 21 year old

                                A new father

                                A wedding you might not go to.

                                A 2nd chance to loving people the right way.

                                                A Dad you never got the chance to meet.

anonymous asked:

I really want to watch Donnie Darko but I'm scared of ableism/mentally ill people deing demonized. What was your experience with the movie?

Honestly, and I may be very bias here since I am Donnie, but I don’t think he’s demonised in the movie. Fans often do, but within the movie I don’t think so.

In the entire movie Donnie is the tragic hero- the things he does are objectively bad, but revealed to be good (avoiding spoilers). There’s never a “look how scary Donnie is” scene imo, or a “Look how out of control he is”. He is fully and openly mentally ill (paranoid schizophrenia) and has a therapist, but noone actually ever is cruel about his mental illness. He refers to himself as a “wacko” and “crazy” in one scene, but as far as I remember noone outside him does- and rather than saying he’s not his parents go with “we love you regardless” route, which I personally prefer. He has close friends and he’s close to his family. His parents are basically the ‘well meaning but a little uneducated’ parents, and actually his dad is coded as mentally ill himself.

Possibly one very short part of ableism is when Gretchen is talking about her Dad. (Warning: mild spoilers) She mentions he has “emotional problems” and then goes on to say “He stabbed my mum X times in the chest”. The link from emotional problems—>violence is not a good one, however Donnie says in the scene he has emotional problems too, and whilst he does “bad” things, he is the hero, so I feel in a way he’s there to combat that emotional problems=bad!

Imo Donnie Darko is my favourite portrayal of a openly, unapologetically mentally ill character I’ve seen. He’s open about his mental illness and reacts in a very realistic way. The people around him react realistic, but not cruelly. They mostly react in the “we want to help, we love you, we don’t know how”. There’s the typical bully character who mayyyy make an ableist comment (I can’t remember) but as he is clearly and obviously a bad character, this demonises the ableism rather than the mental illness.

I havn’t watched the movie in about a month, so if I have missed anything followers please feel free to say! This movie is interpreted differently by a lot of people, hell some people try and say he’s not even mentally ill (they’re wrong lol), but as far as I can analyse, it actually has a lot, lot ableism in it than other movies with mentally ill characters. And hell, a massively popular movie with an openly mentally ill protag? Sign me up
