is impeccable

DUNKIRK (2017)
  • I just saw Dunkirk in 70mm and IMAX and
  • It was the single most amazing cinematic experience of my life
  • As you may have heard, there was very little dialogue throughout the movie which can make a film feel slow or even boring at times, but I was completely captivated
  • But never did I feel that the screen was bogged down with too many lengthy series of quick cuts
  • The angles used in the air were incredible and I’m sure not easily chosen
  • The use of silence in the film was fantastic and their timing impeccable; it was loud and quiet at the same time
  • HANS ZIMMER
  • His score was just too good, as usual (especially the bit where they’re trying to reach the boat in time)
  • Lee Smith is an editorial god
  • Christopher Nolan and the two mentioned above are literally the dream team
  • Can’t believe he wrote that cause, like, it’s easy to imagine something but to write it down in a concise way that doesn’t involve two characters just talking is really difficult let alone in a warzone
  • I commend their use of mostly practical effects and real props
  • There’s a point where it’s night and there’s a bunch of people in a lifeboat with flashlights (or maybe it was fire in the background, I can’t remember) while a guy shivers on the deck of a ship and it reminded me of Titanic
  • Real stories are eerily impressionable, at least in my mind
  • The depiction of what I would call the main characters was very well done
  • Taking fictional characters with a fictional story and having them seamlessly blend into the story of the movie, the story of the Battle of Dunkirk… Well done
  • It’s easy to believe that, despite being created, it may have been someone’s real story, something experienced by a real soldier on that beach
  • The events of the film are harrowing
  • So much emotion delivered in just 147min
  • Tom Hardy’s plane
  • His sacrifice and the way the men cheered for him
  • How they made us think that his landing gear wasn’t going to come out, but it did with the most beautiful colours (great colour scheme all around) of the sun lending its light for his landing down on the beach
  • How his plane became engulfed in flames, burning ablaze on the beach before he stepped into the Germans’ arms
  • It was the first time we see his face
  • But never once do we see the enemy’s face
  • It’s not about the enemy, it was never about winning anything
  • It was about survival and making it home to fight another day and in that itself is a victory
  • This story belongs to the British and although I myself am not a Brit, I have always been fascinated by this particular event in the war
  • (Sidenote: Go watch Atonement or YouTube it’s glorious 5-minute long single shot on the beach at Dunkirk)
  • My mind was basically blown when I discovered this one thing
  • Throughout the film, there’s this theme of “home” and getting there
  • Several civilian fishing boats travel across the channel in hopes of delivering soldiers back to England and like I mentioned, I saw the movie in 70mm
  • ((THANK YOU JESUS for allowing Christopher Nolan and Hoyte van Hoyte to bless us with these beautiful images))
  • At least, most of it was in 70mm
  • I immediately noticed that from time to time it would switch from full screen  70mm to widescreen 35mm. I assumed they were using a different camera for these shots/scenes, but I couldn’t figure out why
  • Then, in the car after the movie it hit me: All of the widescreen shots were of England, of home. You see, the civilian ships coming to rescue them were referred to and represented home so all the shots on the little boat were in done in 35mm as well as the ones at the end of the movie on the train and such
  • The reading of the newspaper was a nice touch made beautiful in a perfect movie
  • THAT ENDING
  • The boys on the train
  • The boy on the boat…
  • I could go on—but instead—
  • just do yourself a favour and go see it for yourself

Aspyn strides proudly through her penthouse apartment, trying to make sure that all of the furniture looks immaculate and spotless before her new roommates arrive. The maid did an impeccable job with the cleaning. She makes a mental note to make sure that she has the same made come around to keep the apartment looking its best.

As her young adult birthday present, Aspyn was bowled over when Darin presented her with the keys to one of the most exclusive apartments in San Myshuno, letting her know that the rent was covered and she could do as she pleases with it. He also provided her with an exclusive, unlimited credit card to furnish the place as much as she desired. 

She’d spent the first night here alone - well, with Darin’s company in her bedroom for most of the evening - but now she is awaiting for her roommates to arrive.

She’d informed Lotus’ parents, her older sister Thalia and her husband Kale, that she would be moving in with her. Truth be told, Aspyn doesn’t need roommates, but she wants to try and get Lotus back on track in her role as her best friend. 

She also advertised for another roommate, and a young, ambitious girl called Charley Whittaker applied to live with her and Lotus. Her parents were wealthy and she seems like she’ll be a good member to their trio of socialites, so she confirmed that she is allowed to live with them!

Ballet

here’s a 10k fic i wrote with draco as a ballet dancer and also draco with flowers on his dark mark // credit to certain parts at the end


Draco took a deep breath and closed his eyes. Straightening his posture, he relaxed his muscles as much as he could at the same time as staying tall and upright. “Thank god for the Room of Requirement,” he thought, glad he had somewhere to be alone.

His left hand gripped the bar loosely while his other arm was curved out in front of him, fingers perfectly placed and barely curved inwards. Long, lean legs were pressed together, his feet pointed out in a wide angle. An impeccable first position.

Wandlessly and silently, he cast a charm on a magical record player (it played any music you needed) to start new music, and the sound of a piano filled the room. Adagio Sostenuto, Sergey Rachmaninov. Draco let the music flow through his body, taking his limbs with it. He danced around the room, drifting gracefully on his feet.

(haiiii!!! I just wanted to tell you that I loooove your blog even though I just followed you!! Keep up the great work!) Oh, and while I'm at it, how would the Sakamaki brothers react when they woke up as one another, as in they switched bodies?

Thank you, it means a lot!Sorry it took so long to reply, I wasn’t busy just lazy af :) Hope this is ok after you waited so long xx

_______

Shu: Surprisingly enough, he tries to come up with a solution himself. It feels too weird to be in someone else’s body and he wanted to get the problem solved as quickly as possible so he can go back to relaxing.

Reiji: Absolutely furious; who is responsible for this atrocity?! It doesn’t matter which brother he has traded bodies with, he is one hundred percent sure that if this isn’t fixed immediately then his appearance will be less than impeccable.

Subaru: As usual, he goes ape shit for an hour or two before calming down and trying to figure out a solution to this problem. It takes all his pride but Subaru would eventually go to Reiji to request an antidote or something of the sort.

Kanato: Would be a constant swap in between crying his eyes out and unleashing a rage similar to that of Subaru, if not worse. Reiji or maybe even Laito would eventually choose to take it upon themselves to fix Kanato’s predicament.

Laito: Wouldn’t be too bothered until it began to inconvenience him. For example, not being able to pick up as many girls as he would usually in his own body. He would make a solution himself or ask Reiji for assistance.

Ayato: Anger, so much anger. Who had dared to mess with the great Yours Truly? How dare he be swapped for some lesser being? It takes him a while to ask anyone for help out of determination to come up with an antidote himself, but once he finds himself truly stumped he would ask one of his brothers for help, albeit reluctantly.

that scene in spider-man: homecoming UNDER THE RUBBLE MADE ME FEEL SO MANY EMOTIONS!!
tom holland did a fucking impeccable job throughout the whole movie, but that scene was so real and raw and unfiltered, almost. he is a scared kid, not a superhero. he’s a 15 year old being crushed beneath a parking garage instead of at the school dance with all the other kids his age. he’s so scared, and panicked, and in over his head
tom holland you got this shit RIGHT

SO MARRIED it hurts every fibre of my being. Also, canonically, Watson has been trying on clothes in front of Sherlock, and Sherlock has been sharing (stealing) clothes with (from) Watson. (Probably even getting more than a feel and a whiff). And, how Sherlock lets go ‘cause staring into those beautiful eyes makes him weak. And that lil smile of Watson’s. So beautiful *cries*.

anonymous asked:

pride and prejudice wasn't written as a resistance to the patriarchy djdjfhdhsj what

i mean i’ve been staring at this message for a solid minute now pondering how to reply, trying to figure out how ro reply, but honestly it boils down to one question: have you read it?

because literally the prevalent theme of pride & prejudice as well as other works of Austen—perhaps most visibly, sense & sensibility—is the ironic social commentary on the degraded role of women, as subjected and dependent on the way of whether they would marry well as they used to be?

like, honestly, what did you think it was about? sure it has a romance in it, but it’s probably one of the the most politically designed and carried out romantical arcs in literature, as it relies not so much on mutual affection, but rather darcy aknowledging his fault of diminishing elizabeth as an intelligent human being. at first, we see him as quite obviously set upon taking her for granted and applying stereotypes; startled with her outspoken attitude and clueless as to why she would reject him. because it IS surprising, that’s the point, given the context of Austen’s novel, the commonly praised choice would be to accept not only darcy, but mr collins without another thought. what do you think is the reason mrs bennet was so distraught all the time? there was no way of securing the future of her daughters other than marriage, we hear it being repeated over and over again—they cannot inherit their father’s fortune.

and—good grief. that’s the romantic ‘main plot’ concerning darcy and elizabeth alone, because the whole point is that he changes his beliefs and acknowledges elizabeth as an equal in the end. darcy isn’t exceptional for being surly and broody, he’s exceptional because he listens and learns.

but all the rest? the whole arc of charlotte, and her unhappy and dull marriage to mr collins, and the stark contrast with elizabeth. charlotte is not WRONG, she does the only thing she knows for certain will allow her to live in a respectful way without becoming ‘a burden to her parents’. the arc of lydia, basing off her portrayal against wickham? even with all his debt, infamy and faults, wickham’s opinion is at no point more blemished than lydia’s. that’s the point, that’s reiteraring the original notion of the disparity between men and women in regency England. the radiating, stinging paternalistic attitude of mr collins towards elizabeth when he marries charlotte and TELLS her that she would probably get no better chance. his absolute belief—corresponding with darcy’s, and contrasted with the latter’s rehabilitation later on—that elizabeth has no choice but accept him.

and elizabeth herself—for all the composition and impeccable manners, she IS a controversial figure in the novel. take the scene when she’s bashed by lady catherine de bourgh, the ongoing commentary on her being too forward with her opinions, the continuous bashing coming from her mother—the lingering threat that lizzy’s ‘stubbornness’ will cause her much trouble and, above all, prevent her from securing both her and the other sisters from absolute poverty when their father dies.

and, just … of course it’s written subtly, it’s conveyed in elizabeth’s wit, in austen’s slightly ironic narrative. the problem with the situation of women is not EXPLICITLY named and stated. it’s not modern times where we’re accustomed to forward addressing of feminist issues. no: it’s shown. it is not only the consistent theme in her works, it’s the prevalent theme of them. i mean, come on, there’s tonnes and tonnes of books that were NOT written with a purpose of targeting partiarchy. fuck, there are much MORE of such books than there is of the latter kind. But to choose Pride & Prejudice specifically, a novel which became one of the most famous books in the world, renowned for e x a c t l y t h i s … i cannot comprehend. please, at least consider this: do you really think the purpose of austen writing p&p was writing a romance? really? why would it become so much of a literature landmark, then?

i don’t mean to be nasty and honestly, go and have your opinion, you’re perfectly entitled to it, but it does make me sad that a novel that is a witty, outsanding and one of a kind social commentary on the plight of women in a specific time period written by a woman IN the time period is turned into something as common as a novel with a romantic plot. that’s all.

sometimes you just gotta indulge yourself with some modern buffstrid
