insert film

someone: haha why are you so obsessed with *insert show/book series/film/etc)

me, internally: because throwing myself into something allows me to briefly forget the constant depression misery and sadness i suffer through every day and when i marathon things my self hatred sometimes starts to disappear because i forget that i’m a real person who exists in the real world. my obsessions help me to cope when i feel like i’m about to explode or cry or scream or all of those at once and once i get into something i barely think of anything else for weeks which is a very unhealthy coping tactic but hey it helps so

me: haha idk :))

Imagine a Horror Movie Night with the Assassins in a Modern Day Setting

Y/N inserted The Human Centipede DVD into the player and pressed play. Then she took a seat. In the room were her favourite people. Aveline sat nearest to the screen. She loved horror movies and wanted to miss nothing of it. Next in line was Ezio, wanting to appear less anxious about the scary scenes than he really was. Altair and Connor were in a cozy, quiet corner, sharing a big bowl of popcorn. Edward made loud noises in the back of the room while his best friend Adewalé chuckled at his jokes. And in another corner next to the door, Desmond and Arno smiled and sipped soda. Everyone was ready to have fun.

Aveline laughed after some minutes into the film, “What? A flat tire in the middle of nowhere? Don’t tell me these oh-so-normal girls are going to discover a house with a weird creepy owner! It’s like a parody of a parody!” Despite her rant, however, she was more amused that annoyed.

Edward, on the other hand, is frowning. “If nothing happens soon, I swear I’m going to switch to Saw.” He didn’t have to wait for too long. Soon, the mad doctor was chasing one of the girls around the house.

As soon as Ezio saw that, he scooted closer to Y/N. “Are you scared?”

“Not really.”

Ezio looked a little disappointed. He was hoping to impress her. He always thought that horror movies were a fine way of flirting, but not this time, it seemed.

Then the mad doctor started his sick operation on his victims. Aveline ooh’ed and ah’ed at the gruesomeness of the scene. Edward involuntarily grabbed Adewalé’s arms, and the latter, equally bewildered, didn’t seem to mind. Ezio winced and no longer cared to act brave. Desmond was a little conflicted. On the one hand, the film terrified him, but on the other hand, he was entertained by others’ reaction. So he just made a weird face with a pillow in his arms. Altair and Connor just sat quietly as before. Arno didn’t. He stood up and walked over to the restroom, and everyone could hear him retching. After a while, he was back and was a little pale.

“Being so close to Sade, one would think you have a higher toleration of gross stuff, Arno,” Y/N stifled a laugh.

“I’m not that close to Sade!” Arno protested.

Then the movie went on. The mad doctor tortured his victims, who cried, yelled and wailed. Y/N heard a few loud sniffs from Connor’s corner. She turned towards him and saw that his eyes were a bit red. “Are you okay, Connor?” she asked as she moved near him.

“I was hoping no one would notice,” he replied, giving her a wry smile, “It is just so sad to think of the agony these kids are in. But I am okay.”

Y/N gave Connor a friendly hug, which made Ezio cry, “It’s not fair. I want a hug too!”

“Oh, shut up, Ezio!” Y/N laughed. Then she turned to Altair, who hadn’t even said a word since the movie began, and asked how he’s doing.

“Don’t… talk… to me…” he muttered, and that’s how she knew he was simply too horrified and frozen in fear to speak. She smiled, and thought that she would never regret her choice of tonight’s movie. The schadenfreude was just too delicious!

Kevin Spacey being replaced in 'All the Money in the World'
By Sandra Gonzalez and Chloe Melas, CNN

Actor Kevin Spacey, who is facing mounting allegations of sexual harassment and assault, will no longer appear in Ridley Scott’s forthcoming drama, “All the Money in the World,” two sources close to the film confirm to CNN.

Christopher Plummer will take over Spacey’s role in the film, which despite the last-minute change, is still set for release on December 22.

“There are over 800 other actors, writers, artists, craftspeople and crew who worked tirelessly and ethically on this film, some for years, including one of cinema’s master directors,” TriStar’s statement added. “It would be a gross injustice to punish all of them for the wrongdoings of one supporting actor in the film.”

The team behind “All the Money in the World” now faces several massive challenges, not the least of which is an incredible time crunch for a film just six weeks from its target release date. 

Plummer’s new scenes must be filmed and then go through the post-production process and inserted into the completed film. Marketing materials featuring Spacey must also be scrapped.

that’s my girl: jupiter jones, juiter ascending
I will admit there are things about my life that I would like to change, but that doesn’t make me a different person. It doesn’t…it doesn’t change the things that matter to me, or who I care about. I’m still the same me.

Hello! Don't know me but I know people. So I wanted to ask if you knew of a term for the set props used, say in SPN, that are never addressed (like chekhov's gun or something), but are meaningful and may have subtext. Like the items over Dean's bed, signs, decor/paintings, flowers maybe. I think my brain invented a word that it doesn't even remember, because it doesn't exist.

Hehe, I’ve seen you around a bit. Sorry if any of the below sounds condescending. When I get these asks, I try to be as informative as I can.

There are a few possibilities. Motif maybe? Motifs are usually like.. patterns.. but we usually just lump everything in my experience. We usually just called set dressing or props that conveyed character presence or meaning “associations” or “setup calls”. Since symbolism in movies is associative, and anything in the narrative that calls a payoff, we just called them what they are.

There may be people who have specific names for them, but other than Chekhov’s “X” I haven’t really seen any specific words. That doesn’t mean the words don’t exist. People in film rename and redefine things all the time. It’s one of the reasons we used definitions more than terms when I was in school. You could argue about something, and then learn you were talking about the same thing coined by a different person. Even the terms for sequence structure of a movie are debated. People agree that 3 act movies have sequences, but not on how many, or what they’re called.

 When I was in college, we’d go through scenes (like the opening from Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums) and pick out associations for characters (Mostly colors in this case, because Wes Anderson) and then discuss them after. The Royal Tenenbaums uses color saturation to convey meaning for example. How bright the color is transfers to the associative character’s passions and mindsets. 

In SPN, the colors, patterns and objects are “associations”. They use association very strongly. Associations are traceable elements with simple connections on their own. They’re sort of like the first introduction of a character in a screenplay. The first time a character’s name appears in a screenplay, it’s always in all caps in the action. This is so that character can be traced back to their introduction easily. How an association is incorporated indicates its symbolism, and its repetition in scenarios is what gives them meaning and allows for more complicated readings. My favorite ones in all of SPN are the items over Dean’s bed you mentioned. They are the easiest type to read. They’re consistently placed, easily legible without being too obvious, change when they should without losing simple explanation and are very traceable.

When I taught film, I showed Hot Fuzz as my movie for “setup and payoff” because everything in that movie is pretty much made of that concept. (It’s actually really neat watching it unfold). I used “setup calls” for the scenarios and props in that movie too. It’s pretty much any element that has to be addressed later (or should). The Pink Unicorn plush in Suicide Squad is an example of failure to respond to your setup calls. It’s also a blatant disregard for the Rule of Threes. 

Setup calls can be objects or dialogue, but when they’re objects, they’re usually given an insert. One of my film teachers joked by calling this “insert attention” but I don’t think it’s an official term. A creepy doll getting an insert in an early scene and turning out to be evil is an example.

There are a lot of “rules” in film, most of them I’ve heard as the definitions rather than the terms though. Their usually a series of “if then statements” like this: 

“If a sharp thing gets an insert, someone’s gonna get stabbed.”

Or

“If it’s purple, someone is going to die”, or “If a gun is shown or mentioned, it must go off eventually.” 

And my personal favorite: 

“If someone states an absolute before the finale, it will be addressed(usually challenged).” 

This is why the end of S8 makes me side eye TPTB a little.

Honestly, it’s perfectly fine to have your own terms for things. You just have to define them and get them out there. I’ve heard all sorts of terms when I was in college that I haven’t been able to find anywhere else, but I see them in movies all the time. 

If you think of the word, let me know. It may very well be a term and I just don’t remember right now. My memory is kind of terrible. If it’s not already a term and can be defined separately from other ones, define and coin it! Maybe it’ll catch on.
