i tagged all of the movies

anonymous asked:

ugh i love james dean so much, watching him in east of eden was such an experience for me, so much potential and soo handsome.

He’s fascinating to watch. I like all 3 of his movies. And he was ahead of his time. And damn, he tagged some quality ass in his short life. LOL Pretty much everyone wanted to hit that–his directors, his costars. He definitely was a cutie.

When they were filming Giant, Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson made a bet to see who could sleep with him first. Rock won and Elizabeth became one of James’ besties.

Rumor has it he dated Marlon Brando for a while and the relationship was pretty volatile. They even had a big public lover’s spat in the middle of a party. Now I gotta go read up on him some more. He had a very interesting life, just way too short. :’(

A film idea I had the other day wouldn’t leave me alone until I wrote it out, and I’m no film producer so here it is on the internet for you all:

Youtuber Heist Movie.

No, please, come back, listen-

YouTube how-tos and prank videos inevitably get more extreme as the market expands and clickbait has to be twice as clicky and three times as baity. So for ordinary YouTubers, people who aren’t pretend-killing their friends or putting on three thousand coats of foundation, the views are getting scarce and the ad money’s not coming in.

Enter a group of YouTubers, the good actors of the bunch who wouldn’t overact their part, with a fair fanbase each to permit high fan entrance to the film without a huge budget overall. I don’t know yet if they’d play themselves or that’d be too much but whatever.

In any case this group of YouTubers meet up and decide to make a fake jokey how-to parodying the extreme side by pretending to rob a bank. Except one of them suggests- well- they don’t have the money to make a set. And they don’t make much money off ad revenue anyway.

They argue and they consider and they look at their empty bank accounts and they eventually strap on GoPros and admit that hey- their public life was already forfeit to their career. Why not forfeit that last scrap and make a life out of it?

So they haphazardly, but successfully, rob a bank without anyone seeing them. And then, as authorities wonder who robbed it, they post a nicely edited and thumbnailed video online of their exploits- an extensive how-to that only discounts the getaway.

The police go crazy. The internet goes more crazy. The YouTubers check into a well-bribed hotel and look over all their hard-earned stolen cash and agree that an exact sequel never gets the same view count.

They rob the MoMA.

After this, other than the obvious taking-it-further copycat YouTubers I’m not sure what next. Of course a competition would then start between two groups (I’d personally think it funny if, like Shaun of the Dead, the opposing group was more comparably famous than the central group, like PewdiePie vs Markiplier, but I’m easily amused) to rob bigger and better things, and now everyone on YouTube’s finally crossed the line of illegality and they’re making ad money and also they have the Mona Lisa.

Idk what happens next. Idk why I even wrote this. I’m not sure whether the tone would be positive or dark or a weird mix of both. Is this a good concept at all?

the date went well from an objective standpoint, but there were no feelings on my part at all???? and i’m not sure what that means exactly, we got along well, we had coffee after the movie and actually talked for about four hours afterwards. BUT there was zero romantic attraction for me and it’s a little unsettling that we got on so well yet there was no connection, it’s making me question my attraction to women as a whole even though it was one date, i’m not even sure if it was a date but it didn’t feel like one to me, it felt like we were friends. idk i have very mixed feelings about it, she was nice and i had fun but i don’t feel romantic feelings towards her at all ;/ it’s weird.

hi all!! this is the twentieth installment of my ‘firsts’ series with Calum. there will be more blurbs to come, and I hope you enjoy this one!! :-) follow the tag anarchyaustralia firsts if you want to be notified when a new blurb is posted!! (see all other ‘first’ blurbs here)

“You should come out with us,” your roommate encouraged, giving you her infamous puppy eyes from where she stood by the front door. She and some friends were going out for the night, grabbing some food and drinks before attending a local concert, but you didn’t feel like attending. You were already dressed in your pajamas, your favorite movie on the TV and a bowl of ice cream in your lap.

“It’s okay, really, I’m just going to stay home. Have fun and be safe, my phone’s always on.” She smiled at your words, grabbing her keys from the bowl on the kitchen counter.

“Night!” With a wave she was gone, her high heels clicking against the floor before she closed the door behind her.

This wasn’t the first night she’d tried to get you to go out and do something with her. At first she tried to just get you to go out for a scoop of ice cream, then another night she suggested going to watch the sunset from the big hill in the park. Every time she asked you to go out you said no, stating that you had too much homework or that you were too tired. In reality, though, you were mostly worried about missing a phone call or text from Calum.

re: ‘jared leto / SS sucks’ posts

This is so tedious, I can’t believe I have to make this post. I’m a reasonable fan of Jared Leto’s movies. I love one or two, like a lot of them, dislike some. I don’t care about his band or his private life and there are elements of his personality that I don’t agree with necessarily, or that don’t mesh with my personality so I’m not here sucking on his teats — and YET, y’all are really trying to ruin Suicide Squad for me with the endless tagged vitriolic posts about him.

Imagine me in the tags naively searching for gifs or clips, having to sit through 1000 posts about how much Jared Leto sucks and has ruined this film and how much the cast of Suicide Squad hate him and how disgusting and horrible his on-set antics were.

It’s obvious that the majority are getting the bulk of their information from memes and quotes taken out of context. I had to see a dozen posts praising Viola for rolling her eyes next to Leto at SDCC (’haha she hates him’) when moments before that she was seconding Will Smiths praise for his methods and applauded in support of them.

This story is overblown. Y’all are buying into the purposeful misinformation and misdirection put out by the director and the films PR people. If you don’t like Leto and hate him for other reasons, that’s fine! But stop feeding into these stupid marketing ploys for Suicide Squad. It’s not as dramatic as y’all think. He did some annoying shit but nobody was traumatised by it, and after the fact every indication from interviews is that the cast agree his ‘methods’ helped to make the movie better. Ayer said Leto was the ‘hammer that made the sword sharp’ at their SDCC panel and the cast in shot were in agreement.

Personally, I don’t care for method acting and if he sent me a gift, I would have sent him a nasty gift right back and told him to f**k himself -BUT- I really can’t find any evidence that the cast were too put out by what he was doing. The most annoyance came from Viola and in recent clips, despite that, she seems to understand it and not hold any grudges.

A few misconceptions 

- The panel at SDCC where Will Smith talks about Jared’s ‘methods’ improving the work of all of them and elevating the film to a higher standard. Viola concurs twice and applauds him along with everyone else. “yes, absolutely”

- Viola talking about his gifts, saying that she didn’t love the antics and the gifts BUT it made her step up her game acting-wise. She didn’t agree with his methods or behaviour but I doubt she despises him like y’all want to think. Even if she does, after the fact she agrees it was beneficial to the work. It’s not the big deal to them y’all are making out.

- “The cast hate him, you can tell from the pics they took together at SDCC without Leto in them” — [x] [x] [x] [x] I don’t have time to go and find two dozen pics and fancams but they all seem perfectly okay with him. If they don’t seem as close to him as to each other, maybe the fact he seldom shot with them and was always in character has something to do with it. A few of them have mentioned that he shot separately and mostly with Margot. Karen found it all funny [x]

- “Margot said she was afraid Leto would beat her up!” — no. FULL quote:

            “When I first heard that he was method (acting), and that we couldn’t refer to him as Jared and things like that, I started to panic a bit because I’m in an abusive relationship with this guy who thinks he is the character. I was worried I’d get beat up on set. But he’s respectful, professional, and lovely. It is so incredible to watch him work because it is a really bizarre process and kind of fascinating. It’s not a process that would work for me but I can see the way he does it and it clearly works for him. It’s cool. He’s very conscientious on set. He’s not completely lost in the character so that he’s violent or anything. Between every take he asks if I’m okay”. [x]

- Another Margot quote. She was not afraid of him, for gods sake.

           “I loved that stuff. I mean, Jared was doing half of my work for me. Harley’s very much part of this relationship, and to have such commitment on the other half made my job a thousand times easier and a thousand times more fun. It keeps you on your toes. I don’t know what’s going to happen when we go on set. I have no idea what he’s going to do. It’s so exciting to act opposite that”  [x]      

- Yet another instance of Margot having no problems w/ Jared [x]

- “Cara Delevingne showed up on set when it wasn’t her day to shoot just to see what Jared Leto was doing. Saw it, left, then half an hour later the rest of the cast showed up, none of them were shooting and they all wanted to be there seeing it.” [x] [x]  

* * I’ve run out of time now, but I’ll probably do a part two in a day or so when I have some more time to collect receipts. Like, I don’t care if y’all hate Jared Leto but so many of the recycled quotes and factoids people use in their shitty posts about The Joker are wildly overblown. I just want to enjoy a silly villain movie. It hasn’t even come out yet and y’all are ruining it with your shit.

Ghostbusters: d*ck attack

I’ve noticed people (male critics) complaining about the dick shot in this movie. 

Something I’ve noticed over the years, in all the movies and tv shows I watch, is that scenes of people attacking men in the dick don’t happen all that often. Especially women. If a woman gets grabbed by a man in a movie or tv show, she just freezes up and seems to forget that she can kick or punch a man in a very vulnerable area and likely make him release her. 

It happens so often, and so seldom do we actually see a woman defend herself successfully from a man by attacking him in the dick, that I have to wonder if this is intentional. That there’s something downright insidious going on here, male directors constantly refusing to show how to take a man down if he’s attacking you. 

Like, this is so pervasive, I have to conclude that it’s intentional. And if it’s intentional, there has to be a reason. 

What possible reason could large groups of men have for not wanting to depict the best way to deter a man from continuing to attack you? 

I mean, really, it’s kinda creepy when you put it like that. 

Women get brutalized constantly in the media, but when we complain about it we’re being “too sensitive.” A man turned into a giant monster in the climax of a film gets shot between the legs with magic lasers, and that’s “too far” and “not funny” and “inappropriate” according to vast numbers of men on the internet. Seriously? Wow.

THIS NEEDS TO BE BLASTED EVERYWHERE!!! Reblog people.

Go up vote the new Ghostbusters movie right now it has a ridiculously low rating of 4.3/10 on IMDB, if you find other places to vote let me know. The movie is great and funny and I loved the entire film personally but more importantly it has a female led cast and quite a bit of ladies working behind the scenes. It is important that we go watch these movies on opening weekend, so you still have today through Sunday, and up vote wherever you can because we all know that representation matters! Also you get to see some sub-textual gayness by Kate McKinnon and it’s absolutely awesome, maybe we will get more if they make another one. I apologize for the tags that are unrelated but I need everyone to go see it and I can’t think of better fandoms that care about rep.

Rant: The Killing Joke 2016 -- or -- How to Screw Up Barbara Gordon in a Single Leaked Image

Originally posted by spacealaddin

Let’s talk the Killing Joke for a second.


The Killing Joke, for those of you who don’t know, is my favorite comic of all time next to Superman: Red Son, The Long Halloween, Watchmen and Spider-Gwen: Most Wanted. I consider it to be a masterpiece and a work of art on its own that really brings an interesting take on my favorite villain of all time, and one of my favorite characters of all time: The Joker. So you bet when I heard they were making a Killing Joke animated feature, I was really REALLY excited for it. But then…then I saw the leaked image of Batman and Barbara having sex on a rooftop…



Let’s be honest, if you’re a fan of the comics or just a fan of Batman in general, do I even NEED to explain why that’s just plain disgusting and repulsive?

No. No I don’t.

However, I just want to bring some things up real quick that nobody has really brought up that I feel needs to be said.

Now, some of you on here have already stated that you already hated the Killing Joke before this, but now this is just adding fuel to the fire. And while I understand your frustration now, I’m going to defend the source material for a second. Specifically on the question of was the Killing Joke sexist? Absolutely not.

Barb getting shot in the comics and her remaining crippled, from what I’ve read from those who hated the comic before this whole shit-storm began, was that Barb’s strong character was whisked away in a single instant as she was immediately crippled. To that I say, no. The event of shooting Barb by the Joker wasn’t some edgy thing that Alan Moore wrote to show off Barb’s tits in some weird carnival ride straight out of Willy Wonka, nor was it reduce Barb’s crippling injury to a mere plot point. It was quintessential for one specific thing. Showing just how little the Joker cared for human life. The fact that he’d do such terrible, horrendous things to someone just to prove a point. But to be fair, some of you might say that that in itself is reducing Barb’s role as character to something that moves the plot along, but again. I say nay. If anything, it showed the strength of her character to persevere. Even though she got shot by the Joker, even THOUGH she was trampled over and stripped naked by him and his lackeys in an attempt to drive her father insane—SHE CAME BACK. She refused to sit on the sidelines and became Oracle. An asset that has kept Bruce alive many, MANY times.

Is it dark? Yes. Controversial? Absolutely. But let me ask you a question that recently has entered my mind as of late.

Would the Killing Joke had been better if the roles of Jim Gordon and Barb were reversed?

Like Joker shot Jim, after he somehow figured out who Batgirl was through some roundabout way, and put her through the carnival of insanity? Obviously it wouldn’t follow the exact same plot points. You could still have naked images of her father, bleeding and dying on the screen; but you also add a couple new things that’d really get her to go nuts.

I don’t have the answer, but it’s a question I ask all the same.

BUUUT that’s a whole different rant for a whole different time, as I’m noticing that my rant is kind of losing focus. The point is, I don’t think that the Killing Joke is sexist…that is, until I saw that goddamn image from the animated movie.

Aside from the obvious creep factors this clip adds on its own, as well as the lack of need for this kind of relationship at all, it is very obvious about what the creators are trying to do. They’re trying to raise the stakes for Batman. Make it more of a personal thing for him…LIKE IT WASN’T ALREADY?!

I’m sorry, but that excuse has to be the laziest goddamn excuse I’ve ever SEEN.

Bruce would ALREADY care about Barb because, 1) she’s the daughter of Commissioner Gordon—his best friend, arguably; and 2) She’s a part of the goddamn BAT FAMILY. EMPHASIS ON FAMILY. Meaning he sees her as a kind of DAUGHTER.

Making her a love interest does exactly what people who argued that the Killing Joke comic did before! OBJECTIFY BARBARA GORDON. She just becomes a very specific fuel to Batman’s fire to stop the Joker and add onto that good ol’ damsel in distress trope. A woman for Batman to avenge. So. What makes this different than the original? As I said. In the original, Bruce already DID care for Barb. There was a long line of history there that spanned, arguably, decades.

But this makes her feel…lesser.

As though the only reason that the writers had for Batman to care about her is because they fucked on a rooftop. Because they share a physical relationship.

…WHAT?! And don’t get me STARTED on how creepy it makes Bruce look.

Granted, one could argue that it’s Ok because it happened in the comics one time in Batman Beyond, but to that I say this. Just because it happened in the comics, doesn’t mean that it’s good! This is something I’ve found myself repeating over and over again when it comes to adaptations and new comics that mimic the old arcs. Comic writers aren’t holy untouchable men who write the word of law. Take Frank Miller. Everybody and their mother loves the dude for The Dark Knight Returns and Sin City, but have you seen his other work? Have you READ Holy Terror?! You shouldn’t—the man is INSANE. He goes on this anti-Islamic, racist tangent that’s frankly as disgusting as it is appalling. And in the case of the time where Barb and Bruce had sex in the past…yeah, no. That was a stupid move too. It was only done to explain why Dick isn’t as close to Bruce anymore. Again, turning Barb into an object for the men to fight over.

And that in itself, is the problem I have. By doing this, rather than raising the stakes (which were the writer’s intentions, no doubt) they in fact, lessened them because you’ve turned a beloved character into a trope. And I know that seems odd, since I’m saying this after seeing a singly scene from a movie completely out of context but…it’s hard to read it any other way! As I said, the reason I’ll defend the Killing Joke comic is because it shows the strength of her character. But by doing this, you’re compromising it. But who knows. Maybe it makes sense in the movie and I’m not seeing it in context, as it was meant to be seen. But…I can’t shake the feeling that there’s no way you can put that in context and make it Ok. I’ll see the movie, mainly for Mark Hamill’s sake, but I go in skeptical. And if it turns out that my rant on objectifying Barb rings true, then I have one thing to say.

Shame on you, DC. If Batman v Superman wasn’t bad enough, you had to come along and forever taint my favorite comic of all time.
