idk how to feel about this movie

Fisher completed her part in Episode VIII late last summer, when principal photography on the film wrapped. “She was having a blast,” said Kennedy. “The minute she finished, she grabbed me and said, ‘I’d better be at the forefront of IX!’ Because Harrison was front and center on VII, and Mark is front and center on VIII. She thought IX would be her movie. And it would have been.”

I don’t understand how in movies when there’s some scene about someone sitting on the bus and thinking about life they just have their head rested against the window and it looks so calming and shit like no have you ever put your head against a window while the bus is moving it feels like your cranium is a blender and your brain is becoming a smoothie

“That line has moved, it has been mocked, it has been everything in between, but I remember coming out of that scene, off that ridge of the hill, and seeing a number of the crew, some of whom didn’t even know what the movie was about, crying. When I first read that line, I was like, “What is that?” Now I realize that anybody who has loved knows what that feels like. The interesting part of casting us at such a young age was that we didn’t completely understand what we were involved in, and that’s the beauty of the movie as well.” - Jake Gyllenhaal

Random things I like about Rick and morty

-Beth is considered busty but her character design is overall not sexualized (bonus: the one reference to her having large breasts comes from Summer lamenting about how her breasts probably aren’t done growing yet)
-you can easily pick out familial similarities in the smith family character designs (mortys hair is the same texture as his Jerry’s, Rick and Beth have similar same head shape, Summer’s head shape is a bit between Jerry’s and Beth’s, Morty and Summer have their dad’s eyes and skin tone)
-that one time when Morty went on an anti-censorship rant against Summer about how she’s too sensitive and the world isn’t responsible for pleasing her and Rick immediately shuts him down with “I take it you didn’t get a text back from Jessica”
-squanchy is a mishmash of 80s cartoon tropes (creature that says it’s name a bunch and ‘lovable’ annoying animal sidekick there to be cute and sell toys, ironic as squanchy has appeared like twice)
-the irony of squanchy being a parody of said trope only for Mr poopybutthole to legitimately fulfill the role
-Summer having her own character arc throughout the show
-Beth’s pathology (I’ll add a link l8r I’m on mobile but the entry on the wiki about her is fascinating and really shows how well thought out everything is)
-the show giving just enough plot advancement at the perfect pace, keeping the audience satisfied but wanting more (unlike that OTHER show) ((reminder that we still know nothing about evil Morty, what Ricks crimes are, the specifics of his and the resistances hatred of the government, why he left Beth and Diane specifically, the time Jerry was raped at summer camp (idk maybe they won’t do anything with it but I feel like there’s something coming like Jerry breaking down or consoling in someone))
-Jerry being the typical dumb dad but in like a new way (not just a Homer Simpson clone)
-Jerry is in marketing and I feel like this is supposed to be a joke about how characters in movies are always in marketing because it’s an excuse for product placement but Jerry only makes ads for like very generalized products (hungry for apples?)
-Jerry is queer and Rick is queer coded and it’s so casual I love it
-A lot of people think Morty is supposed to be autistic and I wouldn’t put it past the show to do it (also suggested in the very first episode)
-doofus rick
-Mr jellybean and the show constantly giving the middle finger to lesser animated adult comedies and also adventure time

Brotp: Bees headcanons

-zack obviously being the captain of the trini x kimberly ship, even before either of them realize they like each other
-zack trying to be trini’s wingman, without her knowing
-trini acts like she’s mad, but she can’t help but feel so happy about how accepting he, and everyone, are
-trini always drops by zack’s trailer, making sure he’s fed and taken care for, because he’s always preoccupied with his mom
-them always trying to one up each other, which causes them lots of cuts and bruises, and trini gets a lot of scolding from kimberly (she doesn’t mind, she always gets a kiss out of it, which earns her teasing from zack)
-they see who can jump the farthest, who can sprint the fastest, who can last the longest sparring in the pit, etc.
-zack constantly teases trini about her height, which always earns him a punch in the arm
-the entire team calls them the bees, or the bees knees

Feel free to add on because I love these two

Wanda and Pietro Maximoff. Twins. Orphaned at age ten when a shell collapsed their apartment building. Sokovia’s had a rough history. It’s nowhere special, but it’s on the way to everywhere special.

He’s got increased metabolism and improved thermal homeostasis. Her thing is neuroelectric interfacing, telekinesis, mental manipulation. He’s fast and she’s weird.

I did parallel thing about Mikleo falling

So I compared scene with falling Mikleo in Doushi no Yoake and…well, spoilers here. I know that this scene appears in the beginning of the game too, but I choose the movie because it had more details. I’m almost sure someone did it before but I decided to show it anyway and wrap my own thoughts around it.

TOP FIVE THINGS MASTERPOST (1/3)

so for the remaining Top Five ask meme posts, i’ve decided to consolidate into a series of three huge posts instead of destroying people’s dashes with replies.  for a series of fun, ridiculous headcanons, follow the readmore!

  1. Playboy Nikiforov will cheat on Yuuri with the entire Russian Hockey team, and Yuuri will come crying to him and eat katsudon piroshky in his bed and Yurio will be allowed to brush the bangs out of his eyes as they lay facing each other, knees knocking together.  “You can stay as long as you want,” Yurio would say.  (Except Victor is incredibly devoted to Yuuri, and the Russian hockey team only has eyes for Yuuri anyway.)
  2. Victor dies from a Terrible Disease.  In his last conscious moments, he grabs Yurio by the hand.  “Take care of Yuuri,” he says. “He’s always loved you.”  “I will,” Yurio responds, unplugging the life support.
  3. “Yurio, the way you landed that quintuple axel jump after only two weeks of practicing, despite it being physically improbable makes me super hot,” Yuuri says, pushing him against the rough edge of the lockers.  “Please, take me now, take me now and wrap your well-toned and physically superior legs around me.”
  4. Victor Nikiforov decides to make a deal with an angel to see a reality where he’s never been born, where Yurio and Katsudon got together instead, and he sees how happy Katsudon is to be constantly challenged and sexually satisfied by Yurio he completely fades from existence.
  5. Yuuri showing up at his hotel room at three in the morning. His eyes are red.  His smile is shy, but real.  “Yuri,” he says, and the way that Yuuri says his name, his real name, is so open and meaningful.  “You’ve always been—I’ve always—“ Yuuri in his mind has said, but never finished.  Yuri’s never let it get past that.  It hurts too much.

Here’s the thing.

I know Neil is not soft. Andrew is especially not soft. They’re both hardened boys that have been fucked over way too many times. There are scars upon rough and probably dry skin in some areas. Calloused fingers and glares that can make anyone cave. They’re far from being gentle because they know they can’t do as Renee does.

But I think they deserve to be able to be soft around each other. For the first time in their lives, they’ve found someone to feel safe around. I can’t pretend to understand what they’ve gone through, but after lives like the ones they lead, I like to think they’d want to be soft with each other. They’ve dealt with tough love and biting words too often that they probably, every once in a while, like to just calm down.

They’re not soft people, not by nature, but they can act soft around each other once in a while. Neil, softly curling their fingers together after a long day and smiling from his side of the bed. Andrew, threading his fingers through Neil’s hair as Neil watches a movie in his lap and Andrew watches him. Neil pressing a careful kiss to Andrew’s knuckles and Andrew pressing his nose to Neil’s neck in a gesture that’s completely trusting.

There’s a post about how Neil is not soft, and I agree. Neil is not soft, and neither is Andrew, but I think they can be allowed to act like it sometimes. Just every so often, and only with each other. For boys like them, being soft with each other might be one of the grandest gestures of trust they can give.

Director Tada Shunsuke’s KnB: Last Game Interview in Animage May 2017

ETA

Director’s Eye Re: Akashi

“In the TV series where Akashi fought with Kuroko and Seirin, his personality changed from “Boku” to “Ore”. This time, we start out with the “Ore” Akashi, but he decided that he wouldn’t be able to win against Nash that way, so “Boku” Akashi comes out. From the very beginning, we already decided that we wanted to play what we, in the studio call “The Akashi Empire Theme Song” (i.e. KnB Soundtrack Vol. 3: The Emperor of Creation) during that scene. In the actual dubbing, and while it was myself who decided on it, the moment the music played I excitedly went “Boku Akashi kitaaa—-!!!” (laughs). I think it was a super cool scene and one with a great tempo. I think the part to look forward to with Akashi is definitely that both Akashis will come out during the match.”

Director’s Eye Re: Nash

“To put it frankly, I didn’t have much planned for Nash before we started recording except for the note that he’s the strongest enemy. However, the acting of Mr. Midorikawa (Hikaru) was so wonderful that I got heavily involved in the film processing and the animation to show Nash more charmingly. I think rather than at first sight…. You’ll be able to tell his superior coolness akin to that of the main characters if you watch it two or three more times. In the end though, Nash is of a standing as the enemy of the Vorpal Swords but he’s also an important character who clashes with Akashi, the playmaker. Also, the new music created for the movie was primarily created around/for Nash and the others so when you hear the music being played, you kind of feel the fear that Nash is out to get the Vorpal Swords again. Music-wise, I feel pretty accomplished.”


YEEEEEEEE. I came here for the Nash vs. Akashi and stayed for the interview. IDK, it’s always so interesting to read how the staff and cast feel about the characters and how they felt while creating the movie because god did the movie give me feels. 

It’s funny though because Director Tada is obsessed with Nash vs. Akashi (AHH it was great) and he said that we’ll get to read about that more in the cast comment give-away for the 7th week of the movie. I’m excited! Though I will go out of country on May…. I may be able to watch it one or two more times before leaving (;w; ). 

BTW, I love the spread with both of their “4” being visible on purpose. The black and white differentiation and the demon king vs the emperor… (*A* )

our love was made for movie screens;

pairing: riley matthews and lucas friar
word count: 1.5k
prompt: “day one: canon verse - something that takes place in the canon universe as we know it”
written for: rucas fanfic week 2017
summary: lucas friar loves the movies, but he love seeing them with riley even more.
a/n: so, this is my first rucas oneshot, and it’s probably not that great, have mercy. the fic is set in the summer between 7th and 8th grade. there’s been a lot of references to rucas movie dates in the show (gm texas pt. 3 and gm the new year) but we never saw any of it, so i imagined what one of them was like. the movies mentioned are avengers age of ultron (cursed) and inside out (which i haven’t seen dfgjdfg) and the title is from all i want by kodaline. 

There was something special about going to the movies. Maybe it was splurging on overpriced buttery popcorn and sugary sweet chocolate, or finding the perfect seat to settle into. Perhaps it was escaping screams and the crushing weight of expectations, the feeling of knuckles and the taste of blood– the distraction of being transported into another world and focusing on someone else’s problems. But the best thing, to Lucas, was the company. He wasn’t always the best at talking to others, unsure of his words, but he didn’t have to talk when he was at the movies. Lucas was allowed to bask in presence of his friends, listen to their laughs and watch them cry, just be. The movies revealed the little things that made his newfound friends tick or burst out into grins. It helped him understand the crazy people who were Farkle, Maya, and Riley; while he seemed to fit in well with the three, he still had a lot to learn about the native New Yorkers.

Lucas Friar loved the movies, plain and simple.

okay but actually? the kung fu panda movies are so important? i feel like they dont get as much credit as they deserve just because they’re “silly animal comedies”
like no they’re really pretty in design visually and in sound and how much care is put into everything from the world to the characters and yeah they’re funny movies but i think they’re really important movies to show kids or really anyone because of the lessons taught in them from self-identity to making decisions and stuff about family and idk here i go again lmao
