endless list of favorite movies:Brokeback Mountain (2005) dir. Ang Lee
We coulda had a good life together. Fuckin’ real good life. Had us a place of our own. But you didn’t want it, Ennis. So what we got now is Brokeback Mountain. Everything’s built on that. That’s all we got, boy, fuckin’ all. So I hope you know that, even if you don’t never know the rest…I wish I knew how to quit you.
“Am I up next?” Jyn asked. She laughed caustically as she guessed why Mothma had approached. “You here to prompt me?” There had to be versions of Jyn’s story that Mon Mothma, chief of state of the Rebel Alliance, wanted told—and others she wanted silenced. But Mothma shook her head. “No. I wanted to say…” Her gaze held on Jyn’s face as she searched for words. Jyn thought through all the trite, meaningless statements the woman might make: I’m sorry for your loss. The Rebellion is proud of you. Good luck with the crowd. “I won’t forget what we did to you,” Mothma said. Jyn stared and tried to comprehend the sadness in her voice.
Adaptations of old stories will frequently move them closer to the production in time and/or space, even if the original is only a couple of decades old.
Distinct from Recycled IN SPACE in that the purpose is to make the story more familiar and accessible, whereas that trope is often based around transplanting a story into a less familiar setting. Also, by its nature, a Setting Update is typically made long after the original, whereas a Recycled Premise is usually a Me Too made to cash in on hot demand. Sometimes, especially with the more radical changes, it can be a genuinely clever analogy.

“My dearest friend, if you don’t mind I’d like to join you by your side Where we could gaze into the stars and sit together, now and forever for it is plain, as anyone can see, We’re simply meant to be.”
whenever i mention that i’m a transformers fan to people the first question they usually ask is “do transformers fans like the movies” and I never get tired of answering that question because seeing that look of relief wash over their face when i tell them “no” is always priceless
it never gets old. they’re so relieved to know that they’re not speaking to a person that likes the transformers movies enough to proclaim themselves a “transformers fan.” “thank god, you’re just a grown man that buys children’s toys, i thought you liked those godawful movies.” it’s so rich. i love it.
We got a preview for new matching YOI nendos and I’m so in love because they remind me of those scenes in the ending credits?
AND IT’S SO LOVELY I’m a huge sap for the whole idea of Victor catching up with Yuuri, wrapping his arms around his waist, spinning him around and kissing him like they’re in one of those cliché romance movies <3
