i just love this movie a lot

Can I just say how proud I am of Zendaya? Like this lil mfer went from co-starring in a Disney show, to producing, directing, and starring in her own Disney show, only to be in a MARVEL movie. Not just any Marvel movie but Spiderman??? And now she’s gonna be in the movie The Greatest Showman with like, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, and Hugh Jackman???

I’ve seen lots of interviews with her and she seems like the most down to earth sweet girl but on top of all that she STAYS slayin red carpets lookin like a beautiful glazed donut fresh out the oven??

Like this is what she’s always wanted to do and she DID THAT what kind of glo up goals

If you had grown up with my parents, it would have been real weird for you. I didn’t grow up with both of them, but growing up with even one of them was not… I mean, I was on the movie-star map. When I was three hours old, I was photographed by Modern Screen. I don’t like being photographed. My father is now publicly saying that he took a lot of drugs. I don’t remember that. I spent my summers in Vegas. That was camp to me: sitting by the pool and hearing that weird music and having people paged.

I think it’s funny how straights watch bad liar and don’t pick up on the gayness until the last minute, like, I’m over here only 15 seconds into the video yelling about how much of a lesbian ‘Daughter Selena’ is

Why I like them
God she’s just so great? She’s gorgeous and the cool Actually Stoic character (as opposed to Piccolo and Vegeta who just pretend) and she loves her family so much and she beat the shit out of Vegeta that one time and I just love her a lot

Why I don’t
Mmm I wish she was just a little more forthcoming with her feelings. Although from what I hear that’s one of the few things Super is doing well so there’s that I guess.

Favorite episode (scene if movie)
Her one scene in Resurrection F makes me happy, even if I do wish she’d actually gone to fight.

Favorite season/movie
Androids arc.

Favorite line
“He’s so cool.” GOD 18 LOVES HER HUSBAND SO MUCH

Favorite outfit
The denim vest/skirt combo was a Good Look

OTP
K18 is honestly the best canon ship and I’m willing to fight over that

Brotp
18, 17, and 16 all hanging out and being friends is my favourite thing what do you mean 16 is dead shut the fuck up and let me have my dreams

Head Canon
She feels super awkward around Chi-Chi a lot of the time because she did sort of try to kill her husband that one time. Less awkward around Goku because they can just punch all their feelings out.

Unpopular opinion
18 is more handsome than pretty. 17 is the pretty twin.

A wish
For people to stop being assholes about her relationship with Krillin? Holy shit you guys they have a great and healthy relationship let them be

An oh-god-please-dont-ever-happen
Don’t let her die in the upcoming tournament or lose Krillin

5 words to best describe them
Not so emotionless kickass mom

My nickname for them
I tag her as blonde hair bot but “the love of my life” also works

Wonder Woman review

The DC movie universe has always garnered mixed reactions from audiences, and I am absolutely no exception. Man of Steel I thought was an okay movie; Batman v Superman I think had a lot good about it, but also a lot of really stupid stuff, namely Jesse Eisenberg and the constant unrelenting dialogue; and Suicide Squad, a film that I love, I cannot deny was anything other than a hot, trashy mess. And seriously, this whole time, I got this feeling that DC was just trying to ape on the Marvel style with its big crossover shared universe stuff, which it jumped into before establishing things better. And that got me thinking: Why do they want to be Marvel so bad? Can’t they just… be DC?

With Wonder Woman, DC has decided to be DC. In fact, they have decided to go back to their roots, a and emulate the father of modern superhero cinema: Superman, the Christopher Reeves film. Patty Jenkins and Zach Snyder managed to pull off an incredible feat here; they put old-timey themes and sensibilities together with modern styles and create not just the greatest film DC has pumped out since The Dark Knight, but easily one of the best and most refreshing superhero films ever.

Before I get into why that is, let’s take a look at the story: Diana is the princess of Themyscira, the island of the legendary Amazon warriors. There’s something special about her, but it seems her mother, the queen, is sheltering her from her destiny… and then Steve Trevor crashes in and opens Diana’s eyes. There’s a war going on in the outside world, and she believes it is her duty to go out there and slay Ares, the god of war who in ancient times apparently poisoned humanity into fighting and violence. So Diana grabs the god-killing sword, the shield, the lasso, and heads out with Trevor to London, where the assemble a ragtag group of multicultural misfits to go into Belgium and stop the war once and for all. Can Wonder Woman save the day, or is Earth doomed to an eternal war?

anonymous asked:

What do you think of the Prequel Trilogy? What were its positives and negatives? Does it deserve more or less love and attention? What are your favorite scenes? In which order do you like the movies? What influence did it have on the whole Saga, according to you? [XD Sorry for the long ask but I just really want your complete views and review on the Prequel movies.]

As anyone who looks at my blog can tell, I’m mostly an original trilogy fan, but I will fight anyone who bashes the prequel trilogy. I really don’t think it’s as bad as a lot of people claim. Yeah, it definitely has its problems. A lot of the dialogue is stilted, and George doesn’t know how to direct. There are large plotholes, but then the OT has them too. But overall, I think they were trying to tell an important story and they succeeded. Plus Padmé is a gem and deserves the world.

I love the casting choices. Hayden did the best he could with what he had to work with, which, as I said above, was terrible dialogue and a director who can’t direct. But his performance, especially in ROTS, frequently makes me cry. And he looks like Mark in a lot of ways, which I appreciate. I like Luke looking like his father. And Ewan McGregor is a perfect Obi-Wan. (Give us an Obi-Wan movie, you cowards!)

The PT does a good job of building up who Anakin was. We get to see who this “great pilot, cunning warrior, good friend” was, and how he could go from that to Darth Vader. We learn that Anakin was a sensitive, broken boy who felt too much. We saw how Palpatine preyed on that. We saw how screwed up the old Republic and Jedi Order was, and how that system could make someone like Obi-Wan, who decided it was okay to lie to someone’s son and try to convince them to kill their own father unknowingly, a father who was once their best friend. I don’t entirely blame Obi-Wan for that. He was the product of a system that toted the “greater good” above all else. Yes, he could have chosen to go against it, but it was ingrained in him from early childhood, and that kind of indoctrination is hard to break.

Learning that Anakin was a slave as a child really does a lot to explain his general despair and hopelessness in ROTJ. The line “I must obey my Master” is very chilling in that context.

I also really like that we get to see who Luke and Leia’s mother was. She’s so rarely mentioned in the OT that it’s nice to get to know who she was. And also Bail Organa. It makes the destruction of Alderaan that much more painful, when you know someone who was on it. Things like that, with such high numbers of deaths, are so hard to grasp. The enormity of it can’t be easily comprehended by our brains. But when you have a name, a face, a person to lose, it’s so much more painful. There’s a reason that the saying “one death is a tragedy, a hundred is a statistic” exists.

ROTS is my favorite of the PT movies, then AOTC, and TPM last. As for favorite scenes, I love the one in ROTS when Anakin and Padmé are staring at each other across Coruscant, him in the Jedi Council tower and her in her apartment, just before everything crashes and burns. The pain on Anakn’s face in that scene is heartbreaking, and I usually cry there. I also love when Padmé tells Anakin that she’s pregnant. They’re both so scared and excited, and they don’t know what to do, but they’re so happy. They’re going to be parents. I firmly believe Anakin was born to be a dad.

I like the arena scene in AOTC, and Obi-Wan and Anakin’s final duel. I always cry when Obi-Wan screams “You were my brother, Anakin!” I like all the times Padmé kicks butt throughout the PT, both when she fights and when she verbally eviscerates people. She doesn’t get enough credit for this side of her.

Overall, I think it enhances the OT, and it get an unnecessary bad rap.

hey guys i’m getting REALLY emotional about twilight right now but idk if i can type it out well because i’m on my phone and i just made a whole twitter thread about it

to make a long story short i used twilight as a coping mechanism for my awful family life/nonexistent social life from like 2008-2012 (and then i got a few good friends and got really into kpop) and every now and then i think back on that time when the movies were still releasing and everything was fresh and exciting and i just ??? cry??? i’m listening to folk music and crying right now. i’m a mess

i just love twilight a lot and it means so much to me and this was a silly post i’ll probably delete in the morning

Hey, I've really wanted to get into batman comics since watching most of the animated movies, what are some good ones to get into?

Kinda depends on what your interested in, but just overall I recommend all of them cus I’m trash. I love rhato but that’s not really batfam orientated, except for moments with jay. Any of the solo comics tend to interlink with other members of the batfam. Oh and robin war features all of the boy wonders, if that’s your jam. It’s hard to name them all but there’s a lot of material so have fun :)

I've been following the game for a while and I am really impressed and eager to get a hold of the game. What language is the game being coded in and what inspired you with this idea? I've hit a wall with my development and inspiration as of late.

Hey!
Glad you like the project :)

I’m coding the game in c# and using Microsoft Xna framework. As for inspiration it’s all from stuff I love. Most obvious is Legend of Zelda and Roguelikes but there’s also a lot of movie and comic inspiration in there.

The thing about making and entire game yourself is that there is so much to do so if I get a creative block and can’t draw or make music then I just focus on coding which doesn’t really require that much creativity most of the time.

When I need inspiration though, I just play LOTS of video games!

First meeting - Atlantis AU

I’m completely losing my head over this AU. Just imagine: an adventurer linguist archeologue Jesse McCree (because he’s fucking brilliant)….. so yeah basically Indiana Jones (but I digress !) looking for the lost city of Atlantis, and then you have Hanzo, first prince and future heir of the empire, looking freaking badass with white hair and golden tattoos.

THIS IS MY JAM.

Anyway, I’m going to draw a lot of panels because this movie is freaking awesome.

A few more thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (yeah, I have a lot of them): while I totally get the rush of “galaxy’s best dad!/Yondu did nothing wrong in his life!” posts and fanart (I do! honestly! Michael Rooker did an amazing job) that’s just… not the story I think the movie is telling, or the story I really want it to be telling. James Gunn is at it too, what with him basically saying “Well, Peter wasn’t a great son either!” in that Q&A he did…

…Yondu was an absolutely abusive parent, yeah? He loved Peter a lot in his own equally-abused way, but he was. Peter even says it, when Yondu demands a prize for basic decency in the first movie “Normal people don’t even think about eating anybody else, let alone that person having to be grateful for it!” He doesn’t know Yondu was never planning to seriously hurt him, he just knows that he pretty much grew up under the constant threat of violence (no matter how ordinary that apparently seems to be for Ravagers.) There were presumably some nice moments every now and again, since Peter does have a clear, maybe rather begrudging affection for him, but yeah, the point: at the beginning of the Guardians films Yondu’s not even deserving of a World’s Okayest Dad mug, let alone a World’s Greatest Dad one.

But that’s why his storyline in GOTG2 is so satisfying, and hits all the tropes I love in a redemption arc, because it’s entirely about Yondu realising just how utterly, utterly he fucked up (with both Peter and the other kids he unwittingly delivered to their deaths) and setting out to try and make up for it, even if that means dying basically unmourned (as Stakar told him) and unloved. When he’s with the others on Ego’s planet, it’s obvious from his words to Rocket that he doesn’t intend to leave it at all, but rather stay and try to regain some remnants of his honour by helping to kill the thing that killed his adopted son’s siblings.

And I love the “[Ego] may have been your father but he wasn’t your daddy” line, I think everyone does, but those would have been terribly disappointing and selfish last words. I don’t think Yondu was talking about himself, it’s just a simple affirmation to make Peter feel better, what matters is the apology he makes afterwards. “I’m sorry I didn’t do none of it right, I was lucky you were my boy.” Not a plea for forgiveness, just a flat-out statement really: Peter deserved better than him. All he can do is die to keep Peter alive and hold his face when he cries and hope that that’s enough.

…..And that’s just, such a much more interesting story than “he was secretly good all along.”

Hey pals. Apparently this is a thing that we, as an internet femslash community, need, so it is time for Grouchy Aunt J’s Guide To Fandom Deportment.

1. I know that you really like your favourite actors, especially the ones involved in your fave wlw ships. I totally understand this! They are pretty, and wlw fandom is really fun, and if your ship is also a canon ship then it is super exciting and validating to see yourself reflected in media that you love. I, too, love that feeling and get really passionate about the media that I watch, which is why I am a Fandom Old.

2. The actors in your favourite ships are people. Like, real people, with anxieties and food preferences and sometimes they have weird hair days and some of them are introverted and some of them are extroverted, etc etc etc. When they are acting in your favourite media, they are going to work.

3. Part of an actor’s job these days is to sometimes be around on social media. Sometimes not! If they are kind/friendly/available on social media, that is a fun perk of someone who is going the extra mile for their job. You are not entitled to this.

4. Even if you super like a ship and are really passionate about fandom, there are things it is not alright to do. Actors are people, and when fans start treating them poorly it is unkind and potentially frightening or traumatic. Plus, your behaviour reflects badly on all fans and means that fandom as a whole doesn’t get to have nice things anymore. (Thanks, jerks.)

5. It is never okay to:

  • harass actors on social media because something about their character is interfering with your ship/they’re not supporting your ship enough/they’re supporting the wrong ship too much/their character is problematic/the ship you think their ship is better than is problematic/just whatever please stop it this is not their problem. Tweeting at them will not fix whatever is upsetting you on the show you like, but it is probably pretty hurtful for them and not something they should have to put up with.
  • harass/question actors who are involved in queer ships about their sexuality in public spaces. People’s sexuality is private, and being involved in portraying a queer canon or subtext ship doesn’t give fans the right to know about an actor’s queerness or lack thereof unless they choose to volunteer that.
  • tell actors on social media about any sexual fantasies you may or may not have about them, b/c sexual consent also applies to actors.
  • send actors unsolicited links to/hand bound novellas/lovingly hand-lettered scrolls of fanfiction, especially smutty fanfiction, especially especially if that author is not aware that their fic is getting sent to actors inappropriately.
  • send actors your nsfw fanart about them, or someone else’s nsfw fanart about them, oh my g o d.
  • ask them to read your fanfiction or autograph your fanfiction, damn.

5a. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself: would I, or another a reasonable person, want to see this [insert fanwork of varying levels of nsfw] about a representation of myself/themselves? Most actors are actual people who find this just as upsetting as you might find it, if someone drew fanart of you and then brought it to your workplace.

5b. Yes, I know, there is a certain amount of distance involved in creating fanworks because they are about fictional characters and that storytelling and play is one of the things I love about fandom. But I also never, under any circumstances, would want any of the actors involved in my ships to read my fanfiction because it would be super uncomfortable and that’s the point

6. Also, your favourite actor’s non-actor family and friends are just that: not actors. Don’t bother them. Don’t - hypothetically - stalk them and try to catfish them to get information about your favourite actor. It’s super super not okay and it’s a huge boundary violation.

In conclusion: social media is super great and has changed fandom in a lot of neat ways, but having cool TV and movie actors available to connect with in that way is a privilege, not a right. Let’s all act like we are worthy of it.

ANYONE WHO WATCHED WONDER WOMAN (2017) DIR. PATTY JENKINS AND WASN’T COMPLETELY IN LOVE IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED

Some thoughts:

  • So we all knew it was going to be emotional to FINALLY have a female superhero movie, but the movie exceeded those expectations. The fight scenes were incredible and so focused on Diana and what she was capable of – the men basically weren’t even there. The fuckin no man’s land scene SAVED MY LIFE. Superhero movies are known for being heavy handed and this one didn’t escape that for sure (the love speech at the end was….a lot), but that scene was so well done…they didn’t have to stoop to some Éowyn knock off line of “I am no man,” we were allowed to just see her do what real women do - step up and do it. Even though that wasn’t the first time we’ve seen her in full Wonder Woman costume on screen, it felt like it was, like it was the first time I’d EVER seen ANY hero before and it took my breath away. By far the best Superhero Reveal Moment I’ve ever seen. My girl taking out bullets right and left, drawing fire from the entire German army!! Fuck me up!!!
  • You can’t talk about this film without talking about gender role reversals. Chris Pine was So Perfect and I think they really couldn’t have pulled the movie off if they’d cast any other white boy in the role. He was funny but genuine, capable but never arrogant, charming but not entitled about it. He learned quickly what Diana was capable of and respected her for it, always moving to the sideline during the fight scenes (the shield moment with the bell tower comes to mind - who needs a sniper when you can fuckin launch a god at the shooter??), knowing that these were her fights and never trying to mansplain her out of them. He wanted to protect her, but didn’t underestimate her - all the things that a typical female romantic interest does in these kind of movies. It was amazingly well balanced, so much so that I didn’t even mind the romantic sub plot. Plus he was almost entirely naked there, way to play to the audience my dudes!!!!
  • The historical context did the movie such a great service. The outward displays of sexism became so ridiculous when faced with Diana, who genuinely had never had to deal with the patriarchy’s bullshit before. It didn’t just make the men in London look pathetic and mean, it cast a large shadow over the way that women are treated today. 
  • The Dark DC Gradient™ on all the shots isn’t my favorite but it did Chris Pine’s fuckin bright blue eyes a huge favor
  • Gal Gadot was so fuckin good??? Not only was she beautiful, like really really distractingly beautiful, like I kept having to force myself to pay attention to the dialogue cause I, like Steve Trevor, could not stop looking at her (and she’s standing next to Genuine Stud Chris Pine and still?? SHE’S SO BEAUTIFUL). But she was way more then that, her performance was spot on. Diana was naive, commanding, strong, compassionate - while never being reduced down to just a one note version of these things. She felt so real to me, in a genre that spends very little time on character development. Even in the sappiest parts of the script, she sold it. She absolutely sparkled. 
  • Some of the best dialogue was the back and forth between Diana and Steve when she’s asking questions about mankind/London - it was cute and funny without being too overdone or obvious, which it easily could have been
  • The villains weren’t much to write home about, but they didn’t need to be. The movie was so laser focused on Diana and Steve that they really didn’t matter, you could self insert whatever you wanted to there
  • Themyscira is the ideal for I too want to hang out on the beach and never see a man again
  • Also that lesbian line, and how stupid male reviewers blindly did not understand it!!! Fuckin drag em
  • But also the fight scenes on Themyscira were INCREDIBLE. I wish that first section had been a bit longer just because I was enjoying it so much, but it was so refreshing to see all women on screen - women who fought and loved and supported each other. Incredible. 

I haven’t enjoyed, really enjoyed, to the point of not having to think about the message or the structure or how much fuckin time I’ve wasted listening to some male superhero talk about honor or some equally boring garbage, since The Avengers came out in 2012. Even then, Wonder Woman felt like something else entirely. It leaned on many of the same tropes and sequences, but there was enough reinvention in between (particularly the characters, who I felt were much more fleshed out then any superhero movie I’ve seen before) to make it feel fresh and exciting. This so easily could have been a throw away movie, a chance for movie execs to point and say, hey we tried with women that one time!! But Patty Jenkins, and Gal Gadot, and all the other women who worked on this incredible production, knew what was at stake, and weren’t going to let that happen. Every time I see a little girl dressed up as Diana Prince, on her way to the theater, my heart fills more and more. During the film, I found myself on the verge of tears five or six times - sometimes because it was so beautiful, to see a woman who felt so real being strong and vulnerable and saving the damn world, but other times because the plot itself genuinely moved me. Wonder Woman is revolutionary for the industry, sure, but more importantly, it’s just a damn good movie.
