natgeo Video @ladzinski / Waves, played in reverse, rolling under a vibrant sunset on the stunningly beautiful island #Martinique at the foot of Mont Pelée. Mont Pelée is the island’s prominent volcano and last erupted in 1902, destroying Saint-Pierre and killing over 28,000 people in 2 minutes! 🇲🇶
okay but can we talk about the 4 biggest movies this week?
Kong: Skull Island
female characters who aren’t sexualized
racist, sexist, transphobic, or homophobic jokes
Beauty and the Beast
diverse period piece (this almost never happens omg)
characters and men wearing makeup in a family movie
I mention there are GAY CHARACTERS IN A FAMILY MOVIE??
POC female lead
she’s a badass
she’s a kid
offensive jokes yet again
addresses racial issues in a unique way
crew (including mixed-race director)
Two unproblematic action movies, a culturally-relevant,
political horror movie, and a family movie that isn’t just a bunch of straight
white people everywhere. Am I dreaming? We still have a long way to go but this is a great start.
If you didn’t hate Amy Schumer before this, maybe this will make you rethink a little.
Snatched was filmed in my little country, Ecuador (South America). Not many people care or even know about us but we are known for our beautiful Galápagos Islands and beaches, and mountains. Amy Schumer made a movie about HER being kidnapped in one of our cities. This, as you may understand, gives ECUADOR a bad rep. WE LIVE OFF TOURISM. Miss Schumer is already a bad person, and this makes me dislike her more. Please don’t watch this movie. And please come to Ecuador, it’s a beautiful country
UPDATE! Pls help me with my fundraiser… http://finchelinthetardis.tumblr.com/post/160813041999/click-here-to-support-help-alina-go-to-college THANK U
This is rather chaotic as I’ve put it together real quick and I’ve plenty favorites - I might add more as I remember or as I go through my reading (some are finished, some are on-going). For now though …
