why do many ppl dislike la la land? i didnt watch it and cant say anything but im seeing loads of post of this movie and the oscar

it wasn’t a bad movie (even though i personally found it boring and overly hyped) but it was not even in the same category as moonlight.

the message in moonlight was one that needed to be seen and heard. it’s such a powerful film that transcends storytelling and provides important and necessary commentary that’s relevant especially with the current state of the world.

la la land did not. it was a fun flashy distraction for two hours but you don’t leave the theatre feeling changed or like you’ve just witnessed something groundbreaking.

part of the irritation people feel for la la land stems from the people involved with the movie calling it ‘brave’ and ‘taking huge risks’ when it absolutely didn’t. la la land is a movie about white people in hollywood singing and dancing. it’s LA kissing LA’s ass.

moonlight on the other hand … how about i just leave this quote here:

“Did I ever imagine, during my anxious, closeted childhood, that I’d live long enough to see a movie like “Moonlight,” Barry Jenkins’s brilliant, achingly alive new work about black queerness? Did any gay man who came of age, as I did, in the era of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and aids, think he’d survive to see a version of his life told onscreen with such knowledge, unpredictability, and grace? Based on a story by the gay black playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney—Jenkins himself is not gay—the film is virtuosic in part because of Jenkins’s eye and in part because of the tale it tells, which begins in nineteen-eighties Miami.”

so yeah, one of those movies is brave and telling a story that’s vitally important to society but it’s not la la land

Surrender (Sam Drake x Reader)

hello everyone i figured in between chapters of wanted i would upload this idea that i had. special thanks to: @unchxrted, @jociemamacie, and @dragonjedihobbit for being angels and helping me develop this idea further and sending me deeper into the pits of hell <3 

Summary: An AU during the 60′s, Sam gets drafted into the war. 

WARNING AND DISCLAIMER: This is kind of a war fic, so there is some graphic imagery and scenes within. Blood mention, death mention.

Sam sat at the table anxiously, listening to the radio static.

He tapped his fingers against the table. They were announcing the dates. 

He bit his lip, saying silent prayers that his birthday wouldn’t be called. 

You walked into the dining room, drying your hands with a rag when there was a pause between the dates.

They called out his birthday.

Your eyes met with his. They were blank, glossy, heartbroken. 

Sam slowly shut the radio off, setting his head in his hands. 

Neither of you had words to say. 

You laid down your rag on the table, stepping behind him and putting your hand on his shoulder.

He stood up and walked into the bedroom.

Sam went to bed early that night, but he didn’t sleep.

oh im sorry im didnt mean anything bad

please refrain from saying that sort of thing in the future. asking us gay and trans folk not to be vocal about vital parts of ourselves as if they don’t matter when we face so much violence for them already is insulting at best and queerphobic at worst, even if you didn’t mean it that way. it’s important for you to be respectful towards marginalized people in whatever ways you can, which includes allowing us to be open about ourselves and our experiences if we want to do so. thank you and have a nice day!

In my opinion, your art is defined by the way you draw your eyes (all of your drawn people are smiling with their eyes), the way you express every personality of the boys by adding small sparkles and stuff, the way you draw these cute blushes and your clean lineart which I adore 😊

//Aaaahh thank you very much–!!♡♡♡ Omg the eyes?? You’re the only one to say anything about the eyes,  which Im most conscious about since I draw them quite simple…. And the sparkles r really nice to do!! Actually I do different signs into the hair depending on the mood!!

why do i gotta ask for people to let this 30 yr old man live his 30 yr old life. like. drink a beer phil. call dan a cheeky fucking cunt when he’s being an idiot phil. make a disgusting sex joke that’s so bad it’s funny phil. live ur life. do it for me babe. im sorry people still treat you like a 15 year old scene kid who wants to fuck a plant.

@ people saying it was queerbait before the kiss: nO?? ?WE WATCHED A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP DEVELOP AT A NORMAL PACE !!! IT WAS NEVER QUEERBAIT, IT WAS THERE THE WHOLE TIME !!! IT WAS CANON WAY BEFORE THE KISS

This show literally did what EVERYONE wants the media to do with an lgbt relationship which is DEPICT IT AS A NATURAL THING. Instead of doing what EVERY show has done when writing a gay relationship which is being like “LOOK AT THE GAY COUPLE BEING GAY THEY ARE G A Y” and defining the relationship according to that, Yuri on Ice didn’t NEED to outright say “These men are in love” because it was so?? obvious?? I just. Please don’t discredit the first half of this show as “queerbaiting” when it was literally just the most beautifully natural and healthy development of a queer relationship we’ve ever witnessed in anime. Viktuuri has always been canon. This kiss just reaffirmed it in a really blunt way.
