Things that were incredible* about Rogue One

* “incredible” doesn’t mean it wasn’t devastating 

  • the cast, obviously — I mean, where even to begin, they were incredible, their performances were superb, the characters were so engaging
  • the relationship between Chirrut Îmwe and Baze Malbus, which was so immensely loving
  • Galen’s choices
  • Galen mentoring Bodhi
  • Bodhi diving into the rebellion because it’s never too late to do the right thing
  • the old star wars aesthetic and costume design (nostalgia AND originality)
  • every death (every life) mattered, on both sides
  • a 2016 pop culture statement about fighting fascism — about fighting fascism
  • Cassian’s been fighting since he was six — this work takes a LONG time
  • the arrival of the rebel fleet
  • fighting on the beaches calling back to D-Day (i.e. fighting nazism)
  • Cassian telling Jyn (the only white team-member) that she doesn’t get to choose when she has to care and when she has to fight (thanks to @bisexualstevenrogers for articulating this)
  • Mon Mothma’s little smile when she realizes what Cassian, Jyn, and the others have done
  • Bail Organa going back to Alderaan
  • was that Biggs Darklighter!? (don’t answer that, I’m just going to assume that it was)
  • women pilots
  • Krennick watching his own side cut their losses on him
  • Cassian and Jyn on the beach 
  • the rebels passing the computer disk from hand to hand down the hallway (!!!)

…how many…how many alpha and omega movies are there…..

so i’ve already seen interpretations of this season’s movie references, i just wanted to weigh in and add that even seems to use movies to abstract his emotions into something that is easier for him to handle and that this can be interpreted within the framework of bipolar disorder. the season starts out referencing romeo and juliet and then shifts its focus to pretty woman. one is a tragic, ill-fated romance movie, the other a popular romcom where one lead whisks the other away from a bad life. even goes from keeping isak at a distance and believing their relationship is doomed because of his illness to thinking it’s exactly his relationship with isak that will make all the difference, be the thing to make him better. being “tacky cliché films” (like mikael says) the movies represent two extremes, the low and the high. narratively they were a clever way to hint at bipolar disorder without spelling it out. it also makes sense for even to fall back on these movies and apply them to his own emotional life, to reenact them, to lend some sense of purpose and structure to his depressive and manic episodes.

Look, i get that suicide squad isn’t the best superhero movie and that there are clearly many issues with the script, story, pacing and some character motivations. However, i don’t think that anyone can seriously disagree with it being nominated for best hair and make-up. Like seriously what other film could possibly be in its spot? i cant think of a single movie during the last year that’s hair and make-up has made the pop culture impact suicide squad did. The work that went into it would have been huge. 

Like for example Harley and Joker 

Whether you like it or not you cant deny the amount of work that would have gone into creating these looks before every shoot, they spray the skin white, do the detailing of all the tattoos and all the regular make-up and hair.

Then you have more tattooing with El Diablo and Enchantress.

And that’s not even mentioning Killer Croc which is a pretty intense transformation

Like its fine that you didn’t like the movie and maybe didn’t like the designs, but don’t shit on the work of some really talented hair and make-up people just because you didn’t enjoy the movie and the DCEU’s current direction.
