i just loved this movie so much

do you think sayo yamamoto knew how big yuri on ice would be? when she first came up with it, trying so hard to make that idea a reality - finding people willing to work with her, to make this project happen - do you think she knew? she is such an inspiration. she had a vision, and it took her years, but she made it happen, an amazing woman, a director, a creator. can u imagine the stamina?? she created the most beautiful scenes in the show, the ones that carry the feelings so perfectly that it just touched everyone, it took us by surprise, just wept us off our feet. i am so thankful - it came out of nowhere and it means so lot for people to finally see such passion for a sport combined with a genuinely healthy (gay) relationship, mental health issues and portraying the sport so accurately that even real life skaters became outspoken fans. do you think she knew?

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales; my opinion

**Contains some spoilers**

First I have to say i had very high expectations going into this one, and they may have been too high sadly. I marathoned 1,2 and 3 again (skipped 4 because its not my favourite) to get into the world of pirates again and watching the first three just made my excitement 10x stronger. Pirates was always one of my favourite franchises growing up, I loved Jack and Will so I was beyond excited to see them again. Dead Men Tell No Tales was okay, it hurts me to say that but i expected way more. I wanted the epic ship battle scenes and the epic sword fighting scenes and I just didn’t get it. The action wasn’t that good and even the black pearl should’ve gotten more screen time… but the big reasons as to why this movie just didn’t do much for me was because how Jack was written. Captain Jack Sparrow is such a badass, hilarious character and watching the first three again just made me so excited to see him again and dodge his way out of trouble but honestly they made him seem so weak and scared, it pisses me off so much, he would scream at everything and run. I get Jack runs but he always comes back to fight and has these beautiful battle scenes but he just didn’t have that here which broke my heart. My favourite scene in this franchise is the big battle at the end of At Worlds End and i just wanted something as epic. A major spoiler and something that pissed me off to no measure was killing Barbossa which I thought was one of the worst things they could’ve done. He is a beloved character and killing him was wrong even though he died a hero it still sucked but I am so happy Jack is now once again Captain of the black pearl.

I was beyond ready and excited to see Will return because it wasn’t the same without him and Elizabeth. Another reason why i was let down from my high expectations was because they literally had no screen time. The fans wanted to see Jack, Will and Elizabeth together again and that was the scene i was waiting for and I never got it…Jack never spoke one word to them but saw them from afar and they never saw him which infuriated me beyond words, this was the moment I’ve been waiting for since they announced 5 and it sucks i never got to see them together again. Will was another character i fell in love with growing up besides Jack and he had very little screen time and deserved way more, oh and where the fuck was bootstrap…he wasn’t even in it :/ For Elizabeth I am even more heartbroken, she never had ONE line not one… I had huge expectations for when her and Will reunited, this was my most highly anticipated moment of this movie and it was beautiful and I cried so hard I couldn’t see through my IMAX glasses but I wanted a conversation between her and Will or at least some words exchanged to one another.

As for the story line it was also okay, I’m not big on so much magic in these movies when its overly done and this one was just resolved so fast. Having the curses of the seas now broken gives them a lot of room for more movies though. 

The after credit scene was really good and dragged me back in, with Will and Elizabeth sleeping in bed together and you hear/see Davy Jones’ shadow walking into their room, standing above them and showing his claw (hand)  then disappearing and Will waking up and pulling Elizabeth back in his arms (which was beyond cute i have no words, my shipper heart couldn’t take it) was just such a good hook for another movie if they decide to make another one. 

My final say is that I just expected a bit more from this movie, I wanted the darker tone of the old ones back, epic ending battle scenes on the ships, I wanted Captain Jack being more like he used to and lastly i just wanted more Will and Elizabeth. A scene between them all would’ve been amazing and worth the wait. I don’t mean to sound so negative this movie did have its good parts, it really was a funny movie that had me laughing throughout it all. So if they ever did decide to make another one i would want the tone to go back to how 1-3 was and Jack being the badass we know he is.

Thoughts on POTC5

Not that anyone cares, but I’m very conflicted about how to feel with the new Pirates movie. Spoilers ahead, obviously. Overall, the plot was cool, I really liked the villains, and the stunts and special effects were incredible. But one thing is bothering me so much that I really can’t overlook it, even in light of all the super cool features I just mentioned.

They undid Jack Sparrow’s entire origin story??

Like, I get that this isn’t a big deal for people who aren’t massive fans like I am, but the reason I love Jack Sparrow so much is that he is the definition of chaotic good. Jack Sparrow became a pirate because he refused to carry slaves on the cargo ship the Wicked Wench, and so as punishment, he was chained to the ship as it was lit aflame, and left to die (which is when he made a deal with Davy Jones to resurrect the Wench and turn it into the Black Pearl). 

In the flash-back seen between Salazar and Sparrow, there is a purposeful shot revealing that the ship Jack is on is, in fact, the Wicked Wench. However, it is clear that he is not in charge of this ship (until the captain dies, of course). At first, I was thinking this was pre- East India Trading Co. Era, but in the middle of the scene, Jack hoists a pirate flag on the ship. So now, apparently, the Wicked Wench was always a pirate ship? I mean, this can’t have been post-slave incident, because after that the ship became the Pearl. 

So, essentially, the script writers just…skips over that narrative, I guess? Not to mention that in this movie, Jack gets his compass from some random ass dude, when it was canonically mentioned in the second movie that he got the compass from a barter with Tia Dalma…

And you know what? It pisses me the fuck off. Jack Sparrow isn’t some “accidental” pirate who just so happens to inherit a compass. He was a purposeful, decisive young man who took a stand against a system he knew was wrong, and died for his beliefs. He may be spineless and cunning at times, but he does have a heart. He literally laid down his life for those slaves, and its a damn shame that we don’t get to officially see that.

Now, I’m not saying that this movie completely erases that narrative; this flash-back might somehow weirdly fit in the given timeline, but the fact that it wasn’t properly explained or explored is just shitty. What they essentially do is, they give the super-nerds, people who love this universe, a small glimpse at this origin, but then leave it up to the audience to either decide that this new information replaces the canon story we’ve been told before, or they must figure out some odd way to fit it into the story we’ve been told with The Price of Freedom. Either way, it’s just thrown in there. I would have totally been fine with the scene if they weren’t on the Wicked Wench. Like, if they were on just a regular ship, I’d totally believe everything. But no, the scene takes place on a ship that will later become the infamous Black Pearl, and you’re telling me it was a pirate vessel from the beginning? Bullshit. 

I’m not saying you shouldn’t see the movie. Please, go see the movie. It’s a great movie! Johnny Depp is such a great man and I was so incredibly thrilled to see him on screen reprising one of his best roles. Go and make your own judgements for yourself. Just know that Jack Sparrow has much more depth than what we’re given in this movie.

A friend of mine described the new Guardians of the Galaxy movies as: “Good but not as good as the first one but only because it’s not the first one” and as convoluted as that it I have to agree. Very enjoyable and I love how colorful it was. Visually fantastic. Also was a superb nostalgia film, reminding me a lot of children’s cartoons and arcade games from the 80s. Also, I loved seeing Kurt Russell, he’s a staple of cheezy  80s action movies and i hadn’t known he was going to be in it so that was a nice surprise. Anyway, loved it, loved the sound track, it’s just as much fun as the first one. 

anonymous asked:

I'm so happy seeing people so happy with pirates. This saga has been such a huge part of my life, it's so great to see it rounding out so well.

THIS !!

I couldn’t agree more. The movie is awesome and everyone that says they do not like the saga should give it the oportunity it deserves. For me it’s the best one since the first. And I didn’t even think I would be saying that. Ever. I just loved it so much and I’m glad the movie is getting the recognition it deserves.

anonymous asked:

aaah I'm so much in love with Guardians of the Galaxy right now. I can only recommend it. After the 2. movie I absolutely fell in love one character (Yondu, aka blue space dad), but the others are just great too. They have a talking, genetically enhanced raccoon!! Both movies are good. ^^

Yea, I saw some gifs n also the raccoon LOL

Well then, one of these days when i get the opportunity I’ll look into these movies c:

brendon getting really horny and desperate and ryan wildly fucks him and fucks him for what seems like hours and they just come over and over and ryan is just so /done/ he's fucking exhausted but brendon just isn't satisfied yet

Do I sense…sex pollen….a topic I love….like they’re watching a movie or something and maybe there’s some sex scene that’s a little bit kinky and it makes Brendon horny and he wants Ryan to fuck him so he just crawls in Ryan’s lap and starts whining for Ryan’s cock, not even realizing he’s pretty much unable of thinking about anything else and Ryan at first doesn’t mind that Brendon’s so desperate bc Ryan can always go for a good fuck with Brendon but after a couple rounds of Ryan just pounding Brendon, pulling his hair and slamming into his prostate, Ryan can’t do anymore, he’s completely drained and Brendon is a mess of his own come but he feels like he needs more, he’s just as horny as he was at the start of the night, so maybe he fucks himself with a toy in front of Ryan and makes it as slutty as possible to get Ryan horny again and it eventually works and Ryan just has to fuck him again bc he can’t resist Brendon when he’s like that

I decided to become an artist when I was about your age. I liked to draw so much, I almost hated to go to bed. And then one day, all of a sudden, I couldn’t draw anything. Everything I drew, I didn’t like. I realized that my art up to then was a copy of someone else, things I had seen somewhere. I decided I had to discover my own style. It’s still difficult. But then, the results… They seem to be a little better than before. It’s nice to be a witch, isn’t it? I like the idea - to be a witch, to be an artist, to be a baker… It’s an energy bestowed by the gods or someone, right? Though thanks to it, we do have to suffer at times.

general li mulan

okay so i LOVE mulan okay. as far as i’m concerned it’s a Perfect Movie and doesn’t need any fixing. but i was thinking today and -

- what if mulan didn’t go to war to save her father?

say her father is dead, okay, killed by the previous war. so she’s raised by her mother and grandmother, women who’s complacency and softness has been worn away by necessity. she needs to marry well, for her family’s sake, because her mother has refused the hand of every man who offered. but mulan is even more rough around the edges than before, is educated not only in books (her mother said men wouldn’t find smarts attractive and grandmother pointed out that men aren’t always around and off to school mulan went) but in the sword too, taught to her by her classmate, ping.

mulan is considered in the lower end of the upper class, coming from a family of military men and scholars and successful merchants. ping is near the top, the son or nephew of an advisor to the emperor. his family is very rich and very important, and the reason they become friends is because mulan manages to notice something about him that he’s been hiding from everyone else - he’s going blind.

not totally blind, enough to get around, but blind enough that reading is difficult and swordplay is even worse, although once he has it down he has it. ping is no fool, he’s not weak or bumbling. his eyes just don’t work. so mulan notices and confronts him about it. she promises to keep it a secret, and hey, she’ll even help him with his assignments by reading the books out loud and helping him study. but in return he must teach her the sword, must teach her about military and tactics. he agrees.

ping and mulan become very good friends and there’s some raised eyebrows about it but they are TOO far away in class for it to be inappropriate, so they make tutting sounds and disapproving faces and let it go.

then the draft happens. ping can’t go to war, he won’t survive it. not with his eyesight like it is. so mulan offers him a deal - she’ll go to war for him, in his place. in return, if she survives, he must marry her. if she dies he must take care of her family.

ping can’t make this kind of family decision on his own, so he goes to his mother and tells her everything, about the eyesight and how he’ll die if he goes and mulan’s offer. his mother says he must keep it a secret from his father, but agrees - if mulan fights in her son’s place and survives, a wedding will be arranged. either way, mulan’s family will be taken care of. ping will be sent to live with some cousins in the meanwhile.

“you’re not in love with me, are you?” ping asks, helping mulan saddle her horse in the middle of the night. she scoffs and rolls her eyes, “not even a little. but marrying you will make my family happy, and besides, you’re my best friend,” she says, smiling, “better you than some grabby old man.” he smiles and hugs her and says, “i’m not in love with you either. but don’t die out there. we have a wedding to plan.”

so mulan goes to the camp, pretending to be ping, and she’s a little bit less lost but things still go as they go. she’s educated and trained, so it’s not hard for her to pass as ping. shang is keeping a special eye on her, thinking that she’s the son of an advisor, one of his father’s friends. and he sees how easily she excels, how quick thinking and smart she is, and starts giving her more and more responsibilities. by the time they’re called out, shang considers ping ie mulan to be his right hand man, and possibly his best friend.

he’s also a little bit in love with ping, and he’s long known he’s attracted to both genders, so he watches ping laugh and smile and the crease between his eyes when he frowns and does his best to let his feelings chase away the best soldier he has. every time shang looks at ping his heart clenches and he things to himself: i wish i could have you, i wish this was a time and a place where one man could have another, i wish you were a girl, is wish i was a girl - i wish we could be together. he’s literally a step away from doodling ‘li ping’ with little hearts over his battle plans. 

so the battles happen. shang and ping lead their men together, respected and loved. they each get promoted, and promoted, and promoted. it’s been years, and it comes to a point where they’re both generals in their own right. they trust each other, care for each other. and are both secretly in love with the other.

mulan is so conflicted. because she wants this war to end and to go home and settle back into life and become ping’s wife, so she can have an easy life spent studying and learning with her family taken care of. that’s what she’d wanted. but now what she wants is shang, her best friend, her brother in arms, her fellow general. she wishes to be everything to him, aches to be the woman on his arm and in his bed, but knows it’s the one thing she can never be.

then that final battle happens. mulan’s quick thinking saves them all and ends the war - but she’s injured.

shang finds out the ping has been a girl all along. he demands explanations - so she tells him everything, that she traded places with ping to save him, to become his wife.

and the lies should sting the sharpest, but they don’t. she’s still the same person, after all. it’s that she’s promised to another man, for one second he’d thought he might have her, but no. so he agrees not to reveal her but he’s furious and furious at himself for being furious and they’re not the same now, broken and splintered and neither of them know what to do.

the war is over. they leave. mulan returns home, and thanks to her ping is now known as a respected general. she’s done her part and survived, and now she gets her reward - ping’s hand in marriage.

but she sees ping for the first time and flings herself into his arms and starts crying. she tells him everything, because he’s still her friend, her very best friend besides shang, the man whom she lied to and betrayed and loves. and ping listens and takes her by the shoulders and says - i’ll uphold our bargain, if that’s what you want. you can be my pampered wife, you’ve more than earned it. but if you want to go to shang, i won’t blame you. you deserve your happiness.

and mulan goes back and forth, but ultimately she decides she has to try. if shang rejects her she’ll return and marry ping and uphold her family honor. but if shang wants her - he’s not as high up as ping, but he’s high up enough to satisfy her family, and also she would love him and want him if he was no more than a farming peasant so it doesn’t matter much anyway.

she rides to the capitol. she finally meets ping’s father, running into him while looking for shang. “ah mulan,” says this man who was never supposed to know of her until she became his daughter-in-law, “i didn’t expect to see you here. how fortuitous. walk with me.” she does, wary, and that’s how she discovers - he and the emperor had discovered her deception a year in, but at that point she’d already proven herself too skilled and valuable to lose. he tells her that he will uphold his son and wife’s deal and gladly welcome her to his household - but that she’s earned her rank as general, and that he and the emperor have no problem with letting her keep it.

she says thank you, shocked and joyful, but that she has to talk to someone first. “ah, yes, young general li,” he says, eyes twinkling, “i do believe he’s around here somewhere.”

she has no idea how he seems to know everything, but she finally tracks down shang who’s ecstatic to see her and hates himself for it. she confesses - says she loves him, that she’s engaged to ping but willing and able to break this engagement for shang. who is dumbfounded and elated and says yes, of course, finally and forever.

and mulan accepts her rank and marries shang, and they become the literal power battle couple of the general li mulan and general li shang. ping becomes a scholar and marries a very nice young woman who loves reading and is happy to read aloud to her husband with his failing eyes.

and they all live happily ever after.
