“Julio and Tenoch told her many other stories. Each story reinforced their bond, creating an inseparable entity. The stories, although adorned by personal mythology, were true. But as truth is always partial, some facts were omitted. It was never mentioned how Julio lit matches to hide the smell in Tenoch’s house… Or that Tenoch used his foot to lift the toilet seat at Julio’s house. Those were details that one didn’t need to know about the other.”

This is a film for dreamers and I think that hope and creativity are two of the most important things in the world and that’s what this movie is about… so to any creative person who has had a door slammed in their face, either metaphorically or physically…or actors who had their auditions cut off or had a callback that didn’t come…or anybody, anywhere really..that feels like giving up, someone who finds it in themselves to get up and keep moving forward, I share this with you.

My favorite quote from Kubo was what he says near the very end, “this was a happy story. But it certainly could have been a lot happier.”
I just love that. It sums up how he feels about everything, despite the memories he now has and the stories he can share, he still has that grief and sorrow but he isn’t going to let it hold him down.
It also sums up the movie itself, showing that, yes, it’s a story about death, but it’s also just as much about life.
And that’s a quote that I would love to be able to use in one of my own stories; something that can sum up the main character’s thoughts on everything, that can sum up the whole story in a simple line, imply that there’s more to this than you may have previously thought, and I absolutely love that so much. It’s so powerful and perfect.
I love it.

Who the hell came up with that word anyway? As I’m sitting here on this charter bus that’s taking me to my resort hotel, I’m watching about three newlywed couples about to get it on on the nasty, itchy seats that probably haven’t been cleaned in years. Rolling my eyes, I decided to grab my headphones out of my carry-on and shove them in my ears before I said something to them.
I decided to look up where the word ‘honeymoon’ came from before I had to witness post-marital bliss conjure right before my eyes.
Typing quickly on my phone, I could feel the bus pulling to a stop, but I wasn’t paying attention. It would be at least five minutes before I was able to get off this godforsaken bus anyway. Why did I choose a seat in the back again? I’ll never know.
“Samantha is an incredibly passionate actress. Natalka goes on a traumatic emotional journey similar to Yuri’s and it requires an actress of a certain caliber to bring those emotions to life. Samantha had easy access to all of that. She was wonderful.” — Max Irons on working with Samantha
“You gotta love Max… The film was so dark, but I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much off-set. We got on instantly, which was lucky, as on our first day we had a love scene. I opened the schedule and went, “Argh!” But you just have to dive straight in and not take yourself too seriously. It was funny, actually.” — Samantha Barks on working with Max
"I wonder... what makes Albus Dumbledore so fond of you, Mr. Scamander?"
This quote hurts me so much. I think- no, I know- that this is one of the biggest reasons Grindelwald is so harsh when sentencing Newt. This is a boy who Albus Dumbledore (Gellert’s first love and arch enemy and original comrade in arms and the man whose sister he may have killed) had obviously taken a liking to.
God, he must be so conflicted. He and Albus, they used to be closer than brothers (certainly closer than Albus and Aberforth). Anyone Albus hated, he hated too. Anyone Albus loved, he loved too. So this Newt… this Newt. This Newt was mentored by his arch enemy, but also his ex best friend. This Newt gained Albus’ affections when Gellert himself had lost them.
And have you noticed Dumbledore’s affinity towards people who love animals? Everyone keeps bringing up Hagrid, but you must remember the first person in Albus’ live that spent almost all of his time with his goats, and while Albus and Aberforth were never close, you can’t tell me he didn’t love his brother. Gellert can see that. He saw what Albus liked in this kid, and it wasn’t just the shaggy blond hair and the revolutionary ideology that he’d taken a liking to, just as with Grindelwald.
It was the creatures. Gellert knew it was the creatures, taunted Newt with that, and reminds us that he knows Dumbledore, not just as an enemy but as a friend and possibly even as something more.
Gellert is jealous and vengeful and I believe, in this scene, he is motivated as much by hatred of Albus Dumbledore as he is by Newt Scamander.
Remember when you said we should live with each other and be unhappy so we could be happy ? cosider it a testimony to how much I love you .. that I spent so long pouring myself into that offer trying to make it work .. But a friend took me to the most amazing place, the other day. It’s called the Augusteum. It’s one of the quietest and loneliest places in Rome. It feels like a precious wound , like a heartbreak you won’t let go of because it hurts too good. We all want things to stay the same, Davide. Settle for living in misery because we’re afraid of change of things crumbling to ruins. Then I looked around in this place, at the chaos it’s endured , the way it’s been adapted, burned, pillaged .. then found a way to build itself back up again, and I was reassured. May be my life hasn’t been so chaotic. It’s just the world that is. And the only real trap is getting attached to any of it. Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation. Even in this eternal city, the Augusteum showed me that we must always be prepared to endless waves of transformation. Both of us deserve better than staying together because we’re afraid we’ll be destroyed if we don’t.
