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!

shixpe  asked:

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.”


“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.

Looking down at this perfect bundle brought tears to your eyes. Chubby pink cheeks and a big head with a little blonde hair growing in.

White sapphy: “Hey, how about [insert mainstream film] but with lesbians!”

Black people: “They should be black too because that would be more historically accurate!”

White sapphy: “Wow, here comes Tumblr with their lynch mobs. I can’t make a simple post without being persecuted! The harassment is too much for me to take! I’m deleting! I can’t take this brutal and unforgiving environment anymore!”

anonymous asked:

Do you think there is a possibility of Hetalia getting another movie?

If you want my honest opinion, I don’t really think so.

Paint it White! came out in 2010 during a time when the series was still in its peak. However, the film didn’t do so well in theatres where it ended up in 15th place in its opening week. By week 2, it was no longer on the box office charts.

I can’t find the posts anymore but I remember people who did go and see the film were very critical of it; much of it geared towards the plot and the act of footage from episodes being inserted into the film and serving no real purpose but to fill time. Prussia was heavily hyped up to be an important character for the film but only received a few seconds of screen time. Iceland as well suffered the same treatment.

I don’t foresee DEEN making another film. OVAs are more likely at this point.

Someone 1: I really like *insert show/film/game/etc* because it doesn’t rely on romance. It shows you can be a strong character and have a strong relationship with other characters without making them fall for each other. After all, it’s important to show and emphasize platonic relationships too.

Someone 2: Cool!

Someone 1: By the way, I ship *main character 1* and *main character 2*. They’re such a cute pairing.

OneStep [Nathan Prescott x Reader]

Author’s Note: NATHAN PRESCOTT WOOOOOO. So glad I finally wrote something for Life is Strange. It has literally been months since I meant to but I never really had any ideas. And I mean I still don’t lol, but this is better than nothing, eh? Hope I did okay. I think my next LiS imagine will be Mark Jefferson but I’m not too sure at the moment. I’ve just kind of been bouncing around different ideas in general and deciding what characters they should be for (not strictly LiS). I never write any of it down but I probably should…

Dan imagine #9 day in the life

Dan’s PoV:
I woke up at around 7:30 am, very early for me before I became a dad but now it was natural. I looked over and smiled at my sleeping wife. I had married y/n 5 years ago and it was definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made. After about 1 year into marriage y/n came to me with a pregnancy test reading positive, it was definitely a shock at first but I couldn’t have been happier with it.

I headed towards the kitchen to make some coffee and breakfast for y/n and y/d/n. I turned on the kettle and put some bread into the toaster. As I was about to grab the butter from the fridge I heard the light patter of footsteps down the hall. “Daddy!” Y/d/n said sleepily. “Hello bear, what are you doing up?” I asked her picking her up and resting her on my hip. She rubbed her eyes with her small delicate hands and laid her head on my shoulder, “I heard you get up so I wanted to come say hi.” She mumbled. I gave her a small kiss on her soft forehead and continued making breakfast one handed. “Do you wanna help me wake up mummy?” I asked her, she nodded enthusiastically and I put her down. She went scurrying off ahead of me to our bedroom, I followed her carrying the food and drink.

Y/d/n was stood outside the door waiting for me to open it as she was too short to reach the handle. We walked in and y/d/n ran straight up to y/n side of the bed and climbed up. “Morning mummy!” She said shaking her. Y/n groaned slightly and turned over to face us. “Good morning munchkin!” She smiled and pulled y/d/n into a hug, kissing her cheek as she did. “And good morning to you too.” She said looking up at me. I placed the breakfast tray on the bedside table and slipped back under the covers. I gave her a quick kiss and allowed her to sit up. Y/d/n still clung to y/n as she ate, the sight was incredibly cute. After we all ate breakfast we decided on what we were going to be up to today. “I have to go for a meeting today love, so I guess that gives you two some daddy daughter time.” Y/n said leaning against me. “That’s ok, we’ll have lots of fun won’t we y/d/n?” I said, y/d/n smiled and clapped her hands. “Yeah!” She exclaimed. Y/n smiled and kissed my shoulder.

After y/n had left for her meeting I sat with y/d/n in the living room. She walked in with her arms full of toys. “Ok daddy, you are going to be a shop keeper, and you are gonna sell these toys.” Y/d/n said proudly. I chuckled slightly and took my place behind the ‘counter’. She walked around gathering her teddies and toys before slipping towards me to 'pay’. “Hello, I want to get these, please.” She smiled. “Oh, yes. Ok then.” I said pretending to scan them through. “That will be 4 pounds please.” I said. Y/d/n giggled and tapped the pockets on her jumper. “I don’t have any money!” She laughed. “Oh no, I guess you’ll have to pay me in hugs.” She smiled and gave me a quick hug. “And tickles!” I said while hugging her. I ran my fingers up and down her sides quickly making her laugh and screech. “Daddy! Stoopppp!” She said in between tickles. I let her go after kissing her forehead.

We continued playing for a bit until she started to get tired. I picked her up and brought her to the sofa where she had a blanket that she brought her toys down in. She cuddled up with her teddies and took a quick nap. I decided that while she napped I would quickly tidy things up and make her some lunch. I made her some small sandwiches and filled up her bottle with ribena. She was still sleeping so I decided to sit next to her and scroll through tumblr. There where lots of gifs and even drawings of y/d/n in my tag so I decided to reblog and like a few. Y/d/n woke up and was in a bit of a grumpy mood because she was hungry, I showed her the sandwiches and juice and turned on some cartoons to cheer her up. Luckily it worked and she went back to her happy self. “Daddy can we watch some Disney films?” She said tugging on my arm. “Of course we can, go pick out a few and I’ll put them in ok bear.” She hopped off the sofa and ran to the collection of DVDs. She picked out Cinderella, lion king, and the aristorcats. I inserted the first film in and settled back into the sofa. Y/d/n came and cuddled into me with her favourite bear, one that Phil had got her when she was born.

After the films finished y/d/n busied herself with colouring. I went to the kitchen to start cooking dinner. Y/n arrived home just as I finished cooking. We all sat at the dining table and ate. “So what did you two do while I was out?” Y/n asked. “We played shops and monsters and then we watched Disney films and daddy sang along to the songs!” Y/d/n rambled. Y/n giggled and turned to me, “That doesn’t surprise me.” She said grinning. I smiled back and blushed slightly.

After dinner y/n went upstairs to put y/d/n to bed while I washed up and poured us two glasses of wine. I felt her wrap her arms around my waist and lay her head on my shoulder blades. “Hey, I’m glad you had fun today.” She hummed. I turned around and held her in an embrace. “We did miss you though.” I replied, she looked up and pulled me down into a loving kiss. We broke away and sat down in front of the tv. We sipped on the wine and caught each other up on the day. “I love you so much y/n howell.” I said looking into her beautiful eyes. She smiled and kissed me again. “I love you too Dan howell.”

I couldn’t have wished for a better family.
