i really like this movie a lot

anonymous asked:

What did you think of Maggie's Plan? It was a big shift, when you consider Rebecca Miller previous films, and I'm still a bit perplexed about it. Do you know about other female film-makers who at some point took a unusual/unexpected turn in the kind of films they did?

I didn’t really like Maggie’s Plan. I actually don’t really like Rebecca Miller’s work very much but I did have my hopes up or that one because it was so different from her previous work. In the end it didn’t quite gel for me because even though I could see where she was going it never quite got absurd enough for me and the humour didn’t quite land. 

Your second question is super fun! I can think of a lot of filmmakers that took really twisty turns with their careers. Patty Jenkins first movie was a serious indie biopic about a serial killer (Monster) her second was a big budget superhero movie (Wonder Woman). 

I haven’t seen it yet obviously, but Mustang director Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s next film seems completely different from her first. Her first was about a group of sisters in Turkey being increasingly oppressed by their family and her second is a period piece set during the 1990 L.A. riots. 

Kathryn Bigelow’s entire career has basically been her jumping from one genre to the next. She did a biker film (Loveless), a vampire Western (Near Dark), a cop thriller (Blue Steel), a surfer/heist movie (Point Break) a scifi murder mystery (Strange Days), a war movie (The Hurt Locker) etc.  

Ida Lupino made a whole bunch of B-movie film noirs and then her last film was about best friends at a catholic boarding school (The Trouble With Angels).

Amma Asante went from making a gritty contemporary film on racism (A Way of Life) to making historical romances (Belle, Where Hands Touch, A United Kingdom). 

Niki Caro and Mira Nair are two more examples of directors who have jumped around genres, styles and projects so much I can’t even encapsulate the work they do. They’ve worked on everything from really personal indies, book adaptations and big budget studio films. 

And then there are also directors like Coppola or Claire Denis who actually jump around genres a LOT but because they adapt the genre to fit their style the shifts don’t feel so great. If you look at Coppola Somewhere and Lost in Translation can sort of be grouped together, but there is a huge difference between The Bling Ring, A Very Murray Christmas, The Beguiled, The Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette. 

And as someone who has worked my way through all of Claire Denis’ feature films she dabbles in genres way more than she is given credit for, but because her films have such a distinct feel they are kind of grouped together and those differences aren’t really discussed. 

I do love directors who consistently put out similar work like Nicole Holofcener, Kelly Reichardt, Miranda July or Andrea Arnold, but I am also a fan of directors who jump around and shift genres a lot.

have you ever listened to any kind Japanese music? If so, what songs do you recommend?

it’s been ages since i listened to japanese music + i don’t really listen to a lot of japanese music anymore, but here are some that i liked:

  • glide by lily chou chou is apparently from a ridiculously depressing movie that i have not seen, but i remember liking the vibes of the song. 
  • one more time, one more chance by masayoshi yamazaki is another song from a movie that i haven’t watched, but i also liked the vibes. 
  • ryo fukui is a sort of piano jazz instrumental sort of artist, but his pieces are quite nice to listen to every now and then. 
  • boyz and girlz by hanae is sorta sugary and upbeat
  • dj okawari and nujabes are both artists that make very chill and sorta mellow instrumental hip hop/jazz type of songs
  • oh my god i remember listening to utaite covers for a looooong time when i was in seventh grade. a few of my favs from then were soraru, 96neko, itou kashitarou, and rib. there was another utaite that i quite liked but i can’t remember her username.

So, the team only really know the MC's mom in a very professional manner, right? How would they react, then, if the MC showed them a really cheesy home movie of the MC and their mom from their childhood, like dancing and singing to "Dancing Queen" or "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" or something like that? Better yet, how would the mom react the them having seen it? xD

The team do know Rebecca very well, but mostly in a professional manner.

I can imagine F would be over the moon to find a goldmine of sassy remarks on finding a video like that :D

A would feel horrible awkwardness at witnessing their superior in such an informal way!

M would snicker. A lot.

N would enjoy it and try to ease Rebecca’s awkwardness, enjoying seeing a more laid back side to her.

Rebecca would probably stare at it for a long moment, purse her lips really tight, and leave the room in as calm a manner as possible, lol!

Thank you for the question! I’m looking forward to writing more interaction between Rebecca and Unit Bravo :)

i hope u don't mind me asking some general questions about the movie! did you like dunkirk? did u get the impression that other people liked it too? how was harry's performance? did u find it distracting? did we ever get to see tom hardy without the mask? would u recommend it? should we know anything about dunkirk before seeing it?

Don’t mind at all!

I did enjoy the movie! It’s very intense and the story is told in an interesting way. It’s very loud, especially in IMAX so be prepared for that. 

I wan’t paying a whole lot of attention to the people around me as I was leaving but for the most part I’d say yes people did seem to like it. 

Harry was fantastic. I wasn’t really sure what to expect because I had been avoiding most of the interviews/promo but I am thoroughly surprised and in awe of what he accomplished. 

Was the fact that it’s Harry distracting? I think maybe in the beginning but once things start happening and you see how great he is, you forget about it and instead become invested in the character.

Yes, very briefly Tom is seen with his mask off.

I would definitely recommend it.

I don’t know if you need to know anything before going in. Just be prepared to sit at the edge of your seat for 106 minutes.

You need to stop carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders.

In case ya’ll don’t already know, I feel obligated to tell you that Anya has to literally stand on a box to effectively kiss Dmitry in the Anastasia Broadway musical and it’s honestly too adorable for words.

i’d like to personally give a shoutout to spider-man: homecoming for being one of the first spider-man movies to not base everything around the relationships and romance like cmon peter had the chance to go impress liz at her party as spidey, what did he do?? track down the weapons. he had the chance to go swimming with her, what did he do??? he tracked down a heist. he was liteRALLY AT HOMECOMING WITH HER AND HE LEFT TO GO STOP A CRAZY ASS DILEMMA (sorry i’m trying to avoid spoilers) but i think it really says a lot about his character. although it was made obvious how he felt about her, he still kept true to the hero aspect, prioritized doing the right thing, and i think that was a genius move. good ass job marvel + jon watts

“We don’t call him Man-Ape,” executive producer Nate Moore told EW during our set visit. “We do call him M’Baku.”

The problem was self-evident. “Having a black character dress up as an ape, I think there’s a lot of racial implications that don’t sit well, if done wrong,” said Moore. “But the idea that they worship the gorilla gods is interesting because it’s a movie about the Black Panther who, himself, is a sort of deity in his own right.”

Director Ryan Coogler and his co-writer Joe Robert Cole (American Crime Story) borrowed some inspiration for the character from Marvel scribe Christopher Priest, who had an acclaimed 1998-2003 run on the Black Panther series.

“You learn that M’Baku is essentially the head of the religious minority in Wakanda and we thought that was interesting,” Moore said. “Wakanda is not a monolithic place. They have a lot of different factions.”

In Priest’s story line, M’Baku was enraged that his White Gorilla cult was outlawed, leading to a clash with the Panther. The character’s exact role in the film is still being kept under wraps, but the filmmakers confirm that M’Baku and his Jabari tribe are, once again, not happy with the young, new ruler (played by Chadwick Boseman).

“A lot of the writers who did some of the most interesting work around the character, they treated Wakanda like a truly African country,” Coogler said. “When you go to countries in Africa, you’ll find several tribes, who speak their own languages, have their own culture, and have distinct food and way of dress. They live amongst each other, and together they make the identity of those countries. That’s something we tried to capture. We wanted it to feel like a country, as opposed to just one city or town.”

M’Baku has a grievance with T’Challa, but he and his followers were equally unsettled by the previous king, T’Challa’s father T’Chaka — who was assassinated in Captain America: Civil War after trying to engage with the world beyond the closed-off, technological paradise of Wakanda.

“In M’Baku’s worldview, T’Chaka made a huge mistake going to the U.N.,” Moore says. “‘We should never engage with the outside world. That’s a terrible mistake. And if his son is anything like his father, I don’t support him being on the throne.‘”

 “Man-Ape is a problematic character for a lot of reasons, but the idea behind Man-Ape we thought was really fascinating. … It’s a line I think we’re walking, and hopefully walking successfully.”

“In this movie, it’s a little tricky to define who’s a [good guy],” Coogler says. “The film very much plays with those concepts, looking at conflicts and different motivations, and who’s with who. M’Baku is a really interesting character, and I’m excited for people to get to see him.”

01:23  Hello

How are you guys??

01:40 Kekekeke

Haha you missed me didn’t you? I missed you too. Everyday before I go to sleep, when I wake up there are always two drops of tears on my pillow

01:47 I also don’t know

I screencapped all the comments about the movies ARMYs recommended to me here on Fancafe. Today, I decided to watch this movie. If it’s fun, I’ll recomment it to the members or to you guys on Vapp hahaha. Anyways, I really like to watch movies and because of ARMYs(!!!) I feel like I’ve become a better person!!!

01:53 Because of everyone I

I’ve been interested in paintings and photographs these days, I’ve also been recommending a lot of them, haha. These days I started taking pictures of the landscape as well. I ahve representative models, there’s a lot of them, there are 6 of them. I bought a filming camera 3 days ago, so I tried to take pictures with it properly. Haha, the important thing about this is the ISO, focus, aperature and shutter speed. I don’t know anything about it so I’m trying to learn, but I’m afraid that I might stop because it’s so difficult. So, please stop me from quitting.

02:06 Euoh I’m touched??

Because you guys keep cheering me on~~ Saying that I can help you with things like this, I’m very proud. If I didn’t meet ARMYs, I wouldn’t have been interested in art. I probably wouldn’t get to watch movies or listen to a variety of music, only watching Oseam* during Chuseok**. I wouldn’t know about other things too if it wasn’t for ARMYs recommendation and different lifestyle, which I gained strength from!!! Ahh, I’m so proud!!!

(*Oseam is a Korean animation movie
**Chuseok is a national Korean holiday)

B02:16 Right now

I can’t read all the comments, theres so many. When I have time I’ll come back and read them all. Sleep well.

Imagine being in a relationship with Jensen for years and getting married in secret and him revealing it in an interview.

“Well, I really feel like I need to give you great congratulations for the movie once more. Nobody expected it to be such a blockbuster but we were pleasantly surprised, I’m sure it must have been for you too seeing as- it’s the first time you act on a movie together, am I right?” the interviewer asked and you nodded your head, glancing at your costar and… husband.

“Yeah, well I- I’ve been out of the big screen for some time now because I- because of Supernatural, and I love don’t get me wrong. It was my choice because I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world, even if sometimes the shooting is exhausting it’s all worth it.” Jensen gave her a charming grin.

“I’ll agree, they’ve got like the best crew I’ve ever met. Everything works out so well and- and that’s even more surprising seeing how much they goof around I- at times I wonder how they get anything done there!” you laughed and Jensen chuckled, nodding his head with a shy smile.

“We’re all a bunch of kids, I’ll admit.” he mumbled as you rubbed his shoulder.

“But they really have the best of the best there. From director, writers, crew to cast, I think that’s what has made the show so successful so I don’t blame Jensen or anyone if they’d never want to leave that! They are really a family and- and you can feel that you know?” you made hand motions “You feel it from the first day and you feel so welcomed you just could as well stay there forever!”

“Speaking of which, though-” the interviewer spoke up with a smile “-Congratulations (Y/n)! I learned that you have been cast to play a surprise character in the show this upcoming season, is it right?”

“Uh yeah, yeah I have! It was amazing, the soonest I found out they wanted someone for a role I just went for it. I didn’t care what it was as long as I could be there even for one effin episode, it will be more than that yeah but still.” you nodded your head.

“Yeah, and I secretly believe that she was just cast to be there to take care of us. I mean “Two oscars?”-” he made a deep voice and a funny face “Screw that, she can keep Jensen and Jared under control; you’re hired!” he slammed his hand on the chair and you giggled as he laughed along with the interviewer.

“I can almost believe that to be honest.” she laughed “But to be honest, and just because we saw how people reacted to the news: Do you not think it has to do with the chemistry you two seemed to have in the movie? And-” she raised a finger “-Before you answer, let me tell you that 9 out of 10 critics pointed out how great your acting together was, as it’s obviously well known. The fans have not stopped shipping you like crazy after this movie, asking for as much as they can get of the two of you together in a screen, big or small.”

Jensen had a sly smirk on his face and you kicked his foot slightly, trying to keep a serious face on “Well-” he cleared his throat, getting a little serious himself, or at least trying to “-I mean look at her!” he showed you off with both his hands “How can someone not have chemistry with this woman?”

You giggled shaking your head with a blush “J!”

“We- we just clicked, from the first moment; I think that was it.” he said with a fond smile and you knew that even if she thought the first day of shooting you could understand he met that first time about ten years ago in a coffee shop “There was a connection, there was defintiely understanding, an unspoken agreement and-”

“Lots of spilled coffee.” you added with a giggle and he laughed next to you.

“Lots of spilled coffee too, yeah.” he had a boyish grin on his face.

“There was chemistry, yeah.” you spoke more softly “Maybe we didn’t see it from the first moment, but it was there. We don’t act like any other couple- screen couple I mean.” you hurried to add “You’d really be surprised to see us communicate, maybe freak out a little bit too.” you chuckled and Jensen did the same “But we- we work, that’s what we know and we’re glad that people could see it as well and that it helped the movie so much; in being believable and true I mean.”

“It really came out of nowhere for some, me including let me tell you. I might be fangirling a little now, but your ship is a really big thing and I know this Halloween what I am going to dress up with my boyfriend. With both the new season of Supernatural and a Sequel in the works the ship has sailed!” she said with a wide grin and you and Jensen laughed.

“You tell me!” he grinned “Wherever I go someone will talk about it and you know what? I completely understand!” he nodded his head.

“Of course you would.” you said with a small smirk and he gave you a look that just made you shift in your place uncomfortably.

“And you know-” he suddenly said, turning to look at the interviewer “I ship it too. Yeah, I ship us like you have no idea but I think I’m the number one fan here because this has been my ship for much longer than yours!”

“Really? That would be an interesting story to hear!”

“Oh you bet!” you exclaimed, remembering how much he tried everything in his power to get to you to say yes in a date with him.

“You know?” she raised an eyebrow and you nodded your head with a grin.

“I was drunk, that’s the only thing I have to say! I was drunk, for everything! Just getting it out there, before he says anything.”

“Excuse me?!” he gasped, looking at you in fake shock that made you and the other woman laugh “Ouch!” he placed a hand over his chest.

“You know what?” he looked at the interviewer “You think a woman loves you, you do everything together: Jump off cliffs, kill aliens, go through the end of the world and almost give your life for each other and that’s what she says: I was drunk. Pff” he scoffed, shaking his head “You end up getting married and after almost a year she tells me she was just drunk, can you believe that?” he asked, his voice almost squeaky as the woman stared with almost wide eyes between the two of you, her smile vanishing slowly as she got more shocked.

“Wh-what?”

“No, really. I even buy her flowers every chance I get- not just anniversaries but well, she was obviously drunk when she said yes.” he said with a clearly fake hurt face and you giggled as the interviewer gaped at you.

“You two are-” she ended up grinning as you nodded your head with a shy smile

“Ask the wife.” he said with a small pout as he rested his chin on his hand, his wedding ring more evident at that moment.

“E for Exceeds Expectations. And I’ve always thought Fred and I should’ve got E in everything, because we exceeded expectations just by turning up for the exams.”

a cool thing about the star wars univers is that it’s so huge with so many characters and eras that you kinda end up following a lot of people who keep mentioning groups of characters you vaguely know who are, but not really because theyre only in this specific comic book series or game or in the movies for like 2 minutes, so you just see those characters being mentioned and youre like “idk them but i appreciate your dedication and love for them just keep being you”
