What Hollywood Can Do to Make More Money

What Hollywood Can Do to Make More Money

Slow Down with the Blockbusters: Okay, so this year during summer was had Pirates of the Caribbean, the Mummy, Wonder Woman, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Spider Man, Dunkirk and this isn’t even all of them. Like having a few summer blockbusters is fine but this? This was ridiculous! How do you except for people to catch all these movies?

Stop with the Remakes and Pointless Reboots: Oh my god, no one wanted a Baywatch movie and the Mummy certainly didn’t need to be rebooted.

If You’re Going to do a Remake, Make It Good or Do Something Different: Like I know a lot of people didn’t like the new Ghostbusters but at least it tried to be different. A lot of these remakes just offer the same story with nothing new! Why bother seeing the movie in the theater if we already have the story at home on DVD or Netflix? And why not remake movies that failed but could be good? Jem and the Holograms deserves another chance. Remake Jonah Hex too! There are tons of movies that were bad but could be good if tweaked. Look to them

Quit the Whitewashing: For real Hollywood, it’s not that hard.

Give us More Diverse Movies: Seeing the same white, male, cis, able-bodied protagonist is BORING. And having stories that focus on marginalized groups has proven to be profitable. Moana, Moonlight, Big Hero 6, Hidden Figures and there are plenty more. The world is not just white. There are so many stories that should be told. We don’t need to see Whitey McPerfect going on adventures again and again and again.

Give New Directors and Upcoming Actors More Work: okay, I get it. Everyone needs a paycheck but there are more directors in the world besides like Michael Bay and James Cameron. If you want movies that bring people in, look at upcoming directors. The same goes for actors. There are tons of talented people (namely actors of color) struggling to find work. Do you really need to have JLaw star in everything?

The One On A Rainy Day - Jonah Marais Imagine

Requested: Yes, by anon

Summary: When a thunderstorm prevents you and Jonah from leaving your apartment, you resort to playing board games for the rest of the evening. Its during this uneventful night-in that Jonah realises he loves you.

Word count: 879

A/N: I got this adorable prompt from an anon and I just had to write an imagine for it. I hope you like it! Xx

More thunder rolled in the background causing you to groan in annoyance and turn the TV volume up so you could hear it. You and Jonah were sitting on the couch flicking through the TV channels, hoping for something good to watch. You both originally planned to go out to the movies tonight for a date but Mother Nature thought differently. One by one, you looked at what was being aired on each channel but nothing seemed to interest you.

“Y/N, slow down! You’re flicking through the channels too fast, I can’t even see what’s on each one!” Jonah huffed in frustration and tried to grab the remote off of you.

“I am not!” You grumbled and held the remote away from his reach, continuing to flick through quickly.

“Yes you-” Jonah was cut off by a big roar of thunder. The lights around the house and the TV suddenly turned off, leaving you and Jonah in complete darkness.

“Great!” You groaned. “Now we have no power!”

You weren’t sure why you were so annoyed by this. Maybe it was because you were really looking forward to the date that you two had planned. Or maybe it was because you were just bored out of your brain. Either way, you knew that the way you were treating Jonah wasn’t fair on him. It wasn’t his fault it was currently pelting down with rain outside.

“I’m sorry I shouldn’t be yelling at you,” You said as you scooted closer to Jonah and wrapped your arms around his waist. “I’m just a bit disappointed that we didn’t get to go on our date.”

“It’s okay, I’m annoyed about it too.” Jonah played with a strand of your hair while you let out a slow sigh. He was so forgiving all the time and you were so thankful for it.

The two of you sat on the couch and stared at the pitch-black wall in front of you. You were so incredibly bored. “I don’t know what to do, I’m so bored,” You sighed, breaking the comfortable silence between you.

“Me too,” Jonah agreed. “My Mum would be disappointed in me right now, she thinks I can’t function without some type of electronic device.”

“Yeah, as a kid my Mum would always make us play board games when we complained about how bored we were,” You laughed, remembering the surprisingly fond memories you had of your family playing Monopoly together. You turned to Jonah with wide eyes, a lightbulb going off in your head. “We should play Monopoly!

Jonah raised a brow at you and smiled. “Okay… But get ready to lose!”

You found the Monopoly set that was collecting dust in one of the cupboards in your apartment and pulled it out onto the living room floor. The two of you set up the game with only minimal lighting coming from a few candles you stuck around the room. The game was well-loved to say the least. The edges of the board was frayed, some of the Monopoly money had rips in them and half of the pieces were missing, but that’s what you loved about it.

Jonah let you roll the dice first, which you thought of as a gentlemanly act but he stated that he always let the loser go first. You rolled your eyes and went first, rolling a straight twelve. Smirking at Jonah, you moved your piece twelve places. Jonah stared at you for a moment with a small smile on his face and shook his head, letting a small laugh escape his lips.

Jonah rolled a measly four and sighed as he moved his piece, stopping on a block of land. “I’m going to buy the land,” He declared and started flicking through the wad of Monopoly money in his hand.

“What? No, you can’t do that!” You frown at him.

“Uh, yeah I can…?” He looked at you in bewilderment.

“No, you actually can’t. You can’t buy on the first round,” You stated, matter-of-factly. What rules was he playing by?

“Since when was that a rule? I feel like you’re making it up.”

“I am not!” You gasped at the accusation. You took Monopoly very seriously.

“I’m pretty sure you are, babe.” At this point Jonah knew he was riling you up but he loved to see you get so flustered as you tried to present your side of the argument.

You started going on a tangent about how the rules you played by were the true rules and that Jonah’s rule was something developed over time probably by people who had no respect towards the true game of Monopoly. Jonah just stared at you while you talked for minutes on end. It didn’t take too long for him to realise how he really felt about you. Your passion for the little things was what first attracted you to him, and now it was one of the many reasons why he loved you.

“So you see? That’s why I’m right and you’re wro-”

“I love you,” Jonah blurted out, unable to keep his feelings in any longer.

You stared at him with wide eyes, shocked by the three words that came out of his mouth. You’ve been waiting so long for him to say those words to you. A giant smile graced your face as Jonah looked at you anxiously, waiting for your reply.

“I love you too, Jonah.”

I’m Not Scared - C.B.

A/N: I love Corbyn and Christina together so this was kinda hard to write but I hope you like it!
Requested by @wdwsmiles :)

Horror movies. You have loved them ever since you can remember, they were your absolute favourite thing to watch. Sadly, not many people could handle watching them. Including Corbyn. Although he didn’t want to admit it, you knew he was terrified. Whenever you chose one for your movie nights he would act like it didn’t bother him at all but you knew better.

This time was no different. You decided on a movie that you had seen too many times to count and once again, Corbyn agreed. When you asked him if he was sure, he just brushed it off, telling you he could handle a little ‘spookiness’. You rolled your eyes at his comment, turning towards the laptop to continue to search for the movie. But you didn’t miss the look in his eyes and his shallow breathing.

After you turned off the lights, the two of you got comfortable on the bed, your head on his shoulder and his arms wrapped around you, surrounded by blankets and tons of food. You were dying of excitement, grinning from ear to ear while your boyfriend tried his hardest to calm himself. The movie hadn’t even started and he was scared already.

The thrill rushed through your body the second Corbyn started the movie. Even though you were focused on the film you didn’t miss the little squeals coming from your boyfriend, no matter how many times he tried to cover them up with coughs. You kept glancing at him throughout the entire movie, just to make sure he was okay. Right before it got to the scariest part, you reached out and pressed pause, turning towards him.

“Are you sure you’re okay? We don’t have to continue if you don’t want to. I mean, the worst part is coming up next and it’s-” Corbyn cut you off before you could finish your rant.

“(Y/N), how many times to I have to tell you this. I’m. not. scared. Alright? This movie is lame anyways.” But you could tell he was lying by the way he was holding your hand in a death grip and avoiding eye contact.

You shook your head, not believing how stubborn he could be and turned away from him, unpausing the movie. You finished the film in complete silence, the only sounds being Corbyn’s occasional whimpers and sharp intakes of breath. As soon as the credits started rolling he rushed to the door, turning the lights on again. You were a little pissed at him for acting like a stubborn kid so you gave him a brief kiss on the cheek and left his room without another word. You walked back into the room you were staying in and got into bed, a deep slumber taking over you as soon as your head hit the pillow.


You heard the rustling of sheets and felt your mattress sink next to you. Slowly opening your eyes you looked at the clock on your bedside table. 2:09 a.m. Before you could ask yourself who would be coming to your room in the middle of the night you felt two arms wrap themselves around your body, pulling you into a chest. The familiar scent belonging to your boyfriend immediately took over your nostrils, making you smile.

“What are you doing here? It’s the middle of the night and I was sleeping peacefully until you decided to come in here and wake me up. I was having such a nice dream about Harry Styles!” Corbyn left out a soft chuckle but didn’t say anything. Concerned, you turned your body so you were facing him.

“What’s wrong, bean?” He left out a sigh, looking at anything but you.

“You were right.” You furrowed your brows, not understanding what he had said. “You were right.” he repeated, much louder this time “I was scared. I hate horror movies, alright? They terrify me. But I didn’t want you to think that I’m a loser ‘cause I was scared so I told you I wasn’t and I know how much you love them. I couldn’t say no to you ‘cause you always get that spark in your eyes when you ask me and you look so adorable when you get excited that I agreed to it. I honestly thought I could handle this one but the truth is, I was so close to peeing my pants!”

When Corbyn was done with his rambling you just looked at him and giggled. “C’mere you dork. I would never think that you’re a loser. You don’t like horror movies, so what? The world isn’t gonna end because of that. How about you sleep here tonight? Does that sound good?”

“Sounds perfect” is all he said, kissing you on the forehead and closing his eyes, finally able to fall asleep.

Babe?- J.M.

Summary: All you wanted was some peace and quiet while reading your favorite book, but a certain little pest wouldn’t let you enjoy it.

Requested by anon

A/N: I quote the maze runner in this, just fyi. Also, (anon if you’re reading this) I didn’t know if you wanted them to be in a relationship or not, so i went with in a relationship…

You sat at the counter re-reading your favorite book for the hundredth time. You always loved reading, especially sci-fi books, they just took you to a whole other place. 

You were deep into the book, your eyes quickly scanning every word in the book. 

“Don’t do it, Tommy. Don’t you bloody do it.” You muttered the lines to yourself, even thought you’ve already read the book hundreds of times you still got so into them. 

“Listen to him, Thomas! Stop being so stupid!” You raised your voice. You could feel your heartbeat quicken, re-reading the paragraph because you were to excited to read it correctly the first time. 

Five feet. Four feet. Three. Tw-

“Hey, babe? What are you doing?” Jonah came up from behind you, wrapping his arms around your waist. 

You groaned out in frustration, annoyed that he interrupted you during your favorite part of the book, well one of your favorite parts. 

“I was reading my favorite book.” You turned your head sightly, smiling up at your boyfriend. “It was actually my favorite part.” 

“You say that about every book you read?” He looked at you confused, tilting his head to the side. 

You stayed silent for a moment, debating on whether or not you should ignore him and continue the book. “Books are great.” You mutter, turning back to your book and re-reading a small part again. 

crunching, grinding sound of the Doors filled the air ,deafening.

Five feet. Four feet. Three. Tw-

You felt small kisses on your neck, distracting you from reading. 

“Jojo, I’m trying to read!” You whined like a little kid. You tried not to smile as he continued kissing you, going up to your face. 

“But, I’m bored and lonely!” He whined back, giving you a small pout. 

“And what were you doing before you decided to bother me?” You questioned him, raising your eyebrow. 

Jonah didn’t respond right away, staring at the floor as if it was the most interesting thing ever. 

“I was playing video games with Corbyn, but he’s taking to Christina now!” He whined again, tugging you into his chest. 

“How about we make a deal, you let me finish until chapter 25 and we’ll do what ever you want after?” You suggested, already reading the rest of the chapter. 

There were a few moments of silence before Jonah decided to speak up again.

“What chapter are you on?” He peered over your head, see you flip the page. 

“Just started chapter 17.” You mumbled, only half listening to Jonah who gasped. 

“But that’s like 10 chapters from chapter 25!” He poked you in your side, trying to get your attention.

“Jojo!” You sigh, starting to get slightly annoyed. “It’s only 8 chapters, and they’re not even that long! If you let me read, I’d finish sooner.” 

“Fine.” He pouted and crossed his arms. “I guess I’ll go to the store while I wait.” He walked towards the front door, putting on his shoes. 

“Do you want anything?” He asked as he opened the door. 

“Candy.” You half replied, too focused on Minho scolding Thomas for running into the maze. 


You manage to read up to chapter 30 in the hour that Jonah was gone. 

“Babe! I’m back, and you can’t tell me you’re not done with chapter 25 by now, it’s been forever.” Jonah yelled as he walked in, bags full of junk food. 

“But it’s so good! Can I just read a couple more?” You begged, flipping the page to the next chapter. 

“No. I was promised time with my girlfriend and that’s what I’ll get.” He tugged the book from your hands, setting it down next to the counter. 

“Bu-” He put his hand over your mouth, playfully glaring at you. ”Fine.” You pouted, raising your hands over his shoulder. 

“Drag me to the couch.” You demanded, falling limp in his arms.

“I’ll just carry yo-” He put his hands under your thighs but you swatted them away.

“No. You want to spend time with me, you must drag me to the couch.” You held onto him, waiting for him to begin to drag you. 

“You’‘re so weird, I swear.” He muttered as he began dragging you to the couch in the living room.

“Hey gu- what are you doing?” Corbyn froze at the bottom of the stairs, staring in confusion.

“What does it look like? He’s dragging me to the couch, duh!” You stated, cuddling into Jonah as he sat you down on the couch next to him.

“Okay… Anyway, I was wondering if you guys wanted to go out, but it seems as if you’ve got your night planned out.” He pulled out a DVD from the bags that Jonah had. 

“You got the maze runner movie?” You asked excitedly, turning to see Jonah looking down at you.

“Well I guessed if you loved the book so much, you had to at least like the movie.” He scratched the back of his neck, glancing at the DVD that was still in Corbyn’s hand. 

“Like it? I love it! I mean, the book is so much better, but the movie is good too! And Dylan O’Brien is in it.” You gushed over the movie, explaining how good of an actor Dylan was. 

“And he plays the drums to-” You were interrupted, Jonah covering you mouth again. 

“That’s it, we’re not watching it anymore.” He grumbled, standing to put the movie on a shelf that you couldn’t reach. 

It took a lot of pleading, begging, and affection to convince Jonah to put the movie on. You were half way into the movie when you felt Jonah move. 

“Don’t do it, Tommy. Don’t you bloody do it.” You muttered the lines to yourself, getting slightly upset how this part wasn’t part of the movie. 

You watched as Thomas stared into the maze, watching Minho try to get to the other side of the doors with Alby before they closed. 

You saw Thomas take a step forward when suddenly the movie paused. 

“Wha-” You looked around confused. 

“Hey, babe?” 

“Jonah!” 


I just finished re-watching the maze runner so i wrote about it… oops? 

I really like how this came out and I really hope you like it too

We’re closer than we used to be | Jonah Marais

Requested? No. 

Warnings? None. 

Summary: After a bad day and a mean comment said by Jonah you broke down. Surprisingly though, he was there to catch you. 

Word Count: 929

If you were to say Jonah and you always got along you’d be totally lying. You and Jonah were practically at each other’s throats for all of middle school and some of high school. Your brother was best friends with him so he was always over the house. You were currently sitting in your room trying to study for a test the next day. You had been stressing over this test for weeks and today you honestly weren’t having it. You were stressed beyond belief and of course your friends had to start drama with you. You just didn’t want to deal with any of it.  

You were in the middle of reviewing your flashcards when the doorbell rang. You jog down the stairs and open the front door to find Jonah standing on the porch. He steps into the house without a word and you shut the door behind him. You walk into the kitchen with Jonah following you.

“Where’s your brother?” He asks while hopping onto one of the chairs by the kitchen island.

“Why would I know? It’s not my week to keep up with him.” You snap. Dealing with Jonah was something you were definitely not up for at the moment. You turn to see a slightly shocked expression on his face from your outburst. He was used to your sarcasm but definitely not your snapping.

You didn’t hate Jonah or anyone for that matter. He just got on your nerves a lot and you got on his. You were always firing sarcastic comments back and forth at each other and any other day you would have responded with sarcasm. However the stress was building and Jonah’s attitude was something you definitely didn’t need that day.

“What’s wrong with you?” He asks as his shocked expression changes to one of anger.

“Like you care.” You mutter angrily under your breathe.

“Well if you weren’t such a brat maybe then I would.”

That was it for you. You slammed the cabinet shut and rushed upstairs a few tears escaping as you flew from Jonah. You sat on your bed crying softly into your hands. His comment hit you harder than expected but nonetheless it still hurt. Your friends had been implying through all this drama that you were selfish and didn’t care about them. Jonah was the only one who seemed to come right out and say what your friends had meant.

You had been crying so hard that you didn’t hear your bedroom door open. You also didn’t hear Jonah walking into your room until he sat down next to you. You try to wipe away your tears and look over to him.

“I’m really sorry I didn’t know you would take it so personally.” Jonah says after a moment.

“No it wasn’t that I’ve just been extremely stressed all day.” You whisper.

He goes to reach out to you but you quickly pull away still not wanting to be near anyone at the moment. Jonah doesn’t take any of it because he gently pulls you into him and rests your head onto his chest. You cry into his chest no longer caring that it was Jonah holding you. After you had calmed down you sat up and looked at him giving him a small smile.

After that moment you and Jonah slowly stopped fighting. You stopped throwing around sarcastic comments and actually started having real conversations with him. You both realized that you had a lot in common but you couldn’t help but think that you were in a movie situation. It all seemed too good to be true. Even your family was surprised that you two started to get along so well.

You were currently waiting for Jonah to come over so you could watch the sunset together. It was something you two shared a love of. The colors melding together was the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen and you’d never get tired of it. As if on cue, the doorbell rings and you jog down the stairs to greet Jonah. He opens up the door and you immediately throw your arms around his neck as he wraps his around your waist. You break apart and quickly take his hand in yours, dragging him up the stairs to your room.

You climb out onto your roof together and sit down next to each other waiting for the sun to set. A slight shiver runs down your body from the chilly october air and Jonah gives you a worried look. He pulls you close to him and you can’t help but smile at the warmth. You lean your head on his chest and listen to his heartbeat.

“We’re a lot closer than we used to be.” Jonah says quietly.

“I’m glad.”

I lift my head from his chest and stare into his beautiful green eyes. The sun hits him perfectly illuminating his face and making his eyes shine. Your faces slowly inch closer until your foreheads are resting against each other.

“I love you.” He whispers.

You can’t take the tension any longer and you press your lips against his. He reacts immediately, pulling you towards him before cupping your face in his hands. When you two break apart he rubs his thumb against your cheek a small but beautiful smile lining his lips. You can’t help the slight giggle that escapes your lips as happiness takes over your whole body.

“I’ve always loved you.” You say as you place your head back onto Jonah’s chest, the smile on your face never leaving.

The cult comedy Mystery Science Theater 3000 (aka MST3K) returned to TV this weekend via Netflix. For anyone unfamiliar with the series, the show revolves around an astronaut (Jonah Ray) trapped on a satellite by a mad scientist (Felicia Day) and her idiot assistant (Patton Oswalt) and forced to watch B-movies with two robots named Tom and Crow.

The new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 features several classic dinosaur/kaiju movies including REPTILICUS (1961, US Ver. Dir. Sidney W. Pink), THE BEAST FROM HOLLOW MOUNTAIN (1956, Dir. Edward Nassour), THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT (1975, Dir. Kevin Connor), YONGARY: MONSTER OF THE DEEP (1967, Dir. Kim Ki-duk) and AT THE EARTH’S CORE (1976, Dir. Kevin Connor).

I’m at big fan of 1975′s THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT, which in my opinion always enhances good Mystery Science Theater 3000, and so I found Jonah and the bot’s riffs on the film particularly amusing.

Warrior Cats Movie Announced! - Why You Should Be Excited!

by LZRD WZRD

China, may just be our salvation after all.

I went to bed last night ready to find myself a good bunker to hunker down in after suffering through the final presidential debate. Jonah Goldberg summed it up best that these things sound like a nasty divorce proceeding. I was ready to divorce myself from life last night until I woke up today to discover literally the greatest news ever: Warrior’s author Kate Cary tweeted out this morning, quote:

“Finally, I can share our big news!

WARRIORS MOVIE!

All I know atm is “Alibaba Pictures” and “in development”. I’ll keep you posted.”

So unless you’re Tennelle Flowers, this is probably the greatest news of your entire life. This is in a sense, the birth of my baby. I’ve been reading Warriors for 10 years and throughout that time me and the rest of the fandom were continuously told this was never gonna happen. Now I admit, this announcement doesn’t guarantee it’ll actually happen. It also doesn’t mean that I get to star as Jayfeather in the sequel films. And most importantly, it doesn’t dispel any of the misgivings that Tennelle had in her video: Why You Shouldn’t Want a Warriors Movie. However, what it does do is give me a reason to live. The 49ers suck, Hillary Clinton’s gonna be president, and I have a calculus test on Tuesday. But, there’s a Warriors movie in the works and if there was ever proof that there’s a god watching over me, this has gotta be it. I’m LZRD WZRD and this is: Why You Should Be Excited About the Warrior Cats Movie!.

So diving into this, I always figured that the best way to adapt Warriors would be for all of you to give me a few thousand dollars per month on Patreon.com/LZRDWZRD, that’s L-Z-R-D W-Z-R-D, and with that I could produce four amazing seasons of an animated Warriors series. I actually tweeted out this plan last week, stating that I’d split the original series up so Into the Wild would be a stand-alone season, with books 2 and 3 being combined into season 2, books 3 and 4 combined into season 3, and then book 6 would be season 4. What’s nice about this order is that it will still work if we replace seasons with movies. Into the Wild would be the perfect book to adapt to film by itself. It features a fish-out-of-water protagonist in Firepaw whose desire to find freedom and a place in the world is the perfect way for people to get invested in the film’s universe. Additionally, the book features a complete villain arc with Brokenstar and ThunderClan’s desperate efforts to oppose him, while also featuring sequel bait with Tigerclaw and Fireheart’s quest to expose his treachery. This is the perfect formula for a successful first movie. We’ve already gotten to see part of it come to life via SSS Warrior Cats’ fan episodes of the first few chapters. These videos total a little over an hour and cover the first 50 pages of the 270 page book, or about 20%. When you cut out the intros, outros, and announcements, these easily come in under and hour. Then when you factor in that the videos are pretty slow-paced to begin with and feature additional material like the Whitestorm fight sequence, it’s easy to imagine this all being condensed into 15-25 minutes without losing any of the original material. So if we give it 20 minutes for this early section and multiply that by 5, we would have about an 1:40 minute film, which is about the time it took the Guardians of Ga’Hoole movie to translate three books into one movie’s worth of material. So given that, I don’t think we’d have to worry about this first film cutting much out.

Plus the middle part of the book gives plenty of leeway for the writers to add their own touches. Firepaw’s training, Yellowfang’s introduction, the trip to the Moonstone, and the battle with ShadowClan all take up a lot of narrative time but don’t contain a lot of material vital to the spirit of the story. Now obviously I’m not saying they should cut any of this out, but parts of it could easily be condensed or changed for the benefit of the film and the artists working on it. I could definitely see some dark and visually stunning sequences coming out of the Gathering and Moonstone chapters which I would love to see on screen. This movie also provides a great opportunity for Firepaw’s “romance” with Spottedleaf to be better developed. It’s easily the weakest part of the book and series as a whole in my opinion, although I might argue that Firestar’s obsession with a childhood crush at the expense of Sandstorm makes for a really compelling character flaw. But since this movie doesn’t have a guaranteed sequel to flesh that angle out, they might just give this couple actual screentime and chemistry. So if anyone should be excited about this movie, it should be the Firestar and Spottedleaf shippers, who may just get to see this relationship done proper justice. Another sequence from the book that could be improved on in the movie would be the climactic battle between Firepaw and the ShadowClan rebels against Brokenstar and his followers. In the book, this battle only takes up four pages and I’m not talking about War and Peace pages people. It always seemed like kind of a letdown that this huge event starts and ends so quickly. That’s not to say that it’s bad, as Firepaw does have a really important moment when Whitestorm jumps in and stops him from killing Clawface to avenge Spottedleaf. For all of the people who say he’s a Mary Sue, this is a scene that proves that he had to learn and grow as a character before ascending to the paragon of virtue that he later became. I really hope they keep this in the movie and give the whole scene a real theatrical embellishment. There are so many emotions going on in this scene between Firepaw’s lust for revenge and Yellowfang’s confrontation with her murderous son that it’s hard to imagine how the studio could make this battle being anything less than spectacular, let alone screw it up. Which brings me to the next part of the video: How to Screw Up a Warriors Movie and Make Tennelle Smirk at Me (in 60 seconds or less!)

Now all of this great stuff completely hinges on the studio’s decision to make this film for ONLY Into the Wild. The reason why Legend of the Guardians underwhelmed was because of the studio’s decision to crush multiple books and arcs into a single movie. If the studio decides to throw out Brokenstar or give that arc a back seat, the logical replacement would be to have Tigerstar’s coup and subsequent exile be the climactic scene. The problem with this though is that an insane amount of material would end up getting cut and characters like Ravenpaw, Cinderpelt, and Cloudtail would suffer immensely. Also forget about that Firepaw-Spottedleaf romance. Heck, they might even cut out Silverstream and Graystripe’s relationship and instead replace it with Fireheart and Cinderpelt. Cinderpelt would get pregnant and then die like Silverstream and then I would lose my mind and storm out of the theater. What would really suck about this is that the movie would end on a relative low-note, rather than the New Hope-esque ending of Into the Wild where a giant success took care of an immediate threat with another bigger antagonist lurking in the shadows.

Tigerclaw’s exile was a good thing, but the effect of it devastated Bluestar who nearly tore apart ThunderClan as a result. Not to mention, Silverstream’s death destroyed Graystripe and led him to leave the clan. The end of Forest of Secrets sees Fireheart standing all by himself with the task of carrying his adopted clan resting on his inexperienced shoulders. That’s why this is ideal as the second movie in the series, as it builds on everything the first book setup, while also shaking up the status quo drastically enough to warrant more interest going forward.

Warriors gets compared to Guardians of Ga’Hoole a lot and while it’s fair to worry that this movie may be a disappointment like that, there are two important things to note. 1) the Guardians of Ga’Hoole movie wasn’t that bad and has plenty of supporters. If a Warriors movie makes the same mistakes, it could still be salvageable if the cast and animation is good. Heck, even a major deviation in the storyline could still be well received, although I don’t see any reason for that to happen, which leads me to 2) Warriors is better setup to succeed than Guardians of Ga’Hoole. The reason why the Ga’Hoole movie combined multiple books was because of the structure of the series. Many of the main characters weren’t introduced until late in book one or even in book 2. The first book also doesn’t have the big fight climax that other books in the series have, which translate better to a cinematic story. By contrast, Into the Wild has all of its major cast members introduced immediately in the story and has a satisfying climax that builds on them. Given all of that, there’s no reason for the studio to deviate from just adapting Into the Wild. It’s still very early in production and I’m sure we’ll have a lot more to discuss and speculate on going forward. But just for now, we can sit back and celebrate. Our childhood starts again today and maybe, just maybe, it’ll be alright.

This Movie Staten Island Summer showed up on Netflix under my list of movies for me.  I have to say it was a pretty dire list and I am not sure what Netflix was thinking, most of the movies it had pegged as a 1 star for me.  And usually I find the algorithm for Netflix is pretty spot on, so that means either I have watched everything good on Netflix or Netflix was fucking with me. The only movie above 1.5 stars was Staten Island Summer.  Which it thought I would give 2.5 stars. It was wrong, this movie was bad guys. Because it wasn’t just not funny, it was such a blatant rip off of Superbad they had the loud, fat, obnoxious friend just doing a straight up Jonah Hill impression.  Ashley Greene played the hot girl in the movie.  You know, the object of affection who no one really knows, she just keeps showing up and looking hot every now and then.  It was a role that suited her because if the movie got one thing right it’s that Ashley Greene is pretty hot. I haven’t posted her in forever because I haven’t seen her in anything in forever.  I hate to say it but given the quality of movies I have seen her in.. it’s probably good news for me.  But… she is really hot.  And I still am going to get around to Burying the Ex eventually.  Today I want to fuck Ashley Greene

Dear the me of 3 months ago,

How’re you doing? I know you’ve just come to a realization, and are freaking at the thoughts running wild through your head. Everything is clicking together and all the missing pieces you’d swallowed down are coming back up to fit the picture together: You’re Trans.

And I know it’s fucking terrifying and all you want is to grab a pack and smoke it ‘til the sun rises. Drink until you forget everything you’ve uncovered.

But you won’t.

Cause the weight that’s been heavy in your chest for so long has lifted enough for you to breath and I know you’re finally ready. There’s so much in store for you.

In two weeks, you’ll by your first bottle of men’s cologne.

A day later you’ll find that old movie you loved, and the name of the character who gave you the strength to believe in yourself so many years ago. Start calling yourself Jonah in the dark, quiet of your room.

In three, you’ll build the courage to finally wear that binder you bought months ago. You’ll fall in love with how your band t-shirts fall over your chest. You will cry at the sight, and let it out. It’s a good cry, trust me.

One month later you’re gonna get drunk with your brother and let the secret slip. Don’t panic, he’s cool with it. Plus, he loves the name you’ve picked. Another shot in and you’ll come out to everyone at the party, they keep calling you by the right name and pronouns even after they’ve sobered up.

Two months later, and you’ll notice that heavy weight of depression that used to  fall over you hasn’t been around lately. Not completely gone, but that one section of it that used to hold you captive has stayed away. It’ll take a few days but realize quick that it’s the not hiding from everyone that’s keeping you high.

Two and a half months from now, you’ll kiss a boy who thinks of you as one as well. He’ll tell you how awesome his “first gay kiss” was. Share three more with him throughout the night. Don’t try to hide your smile when he calls you by your name and presses you against the wall before saying goodnight.

Before you know it, you’re gonna be where I am now. Listening to music in your living room, three days from getting your hair cut just how you want it and feeling more alive and proud of yourself than you ever have before.

Sincerely,

Jonah

For Fey! Happy Birthday, Fey!

A Little Birdie Told Me…
Rated G, warnings for injury. Fresh from a long mission, Sara faces an even more difficult one: babysitting Felicity and Oliver’s kids on date night.

Her problem isn’t that she’s incapable. She’s the Black Canary. She’s done things far more terrifying than this.

It’s just that there’s only one of her and there are three of them.

She remembers getting the call at four a.m.—her fault for not letting them know she’d hopped a couple of continents away from where she’d told them she was going, really—the first time Oliver’s voice has said, “I have news” without bearing a heavy mantle of tragedy in the rise and fall of the words. Just like she vividly remembers hopping on a six a.m. flight back to Starling City and running up to Felicity, who practically crushed her in a hug with the promise that, “No, I’m not going to break, I swear!” There had been lots of twirling and “Okay, but no, I might actually throw up on you, though, so let’s not do that.” And then there are other memories that pile up on top of that: sticking around for moral support, texts of ultrasound pictures sent to phone numbers that should be unlisted, Felicity, why do I even try to be off the grid when you’re in my life?, settling down for a while so she could be on hand, outracing a bomb and dragging Oliver along so he wouldn’t miss the birth of his firstborn, outracing an AK-47 and dragging Diggle along so he wouldn’t miss the birth of Oliver’s second-born, outracing a melting ray and being dragged along by Laurel so neither of them would miss the birth of the third child.

And two years later, she tries to look apologetic as three small faces stare up at her. It’s not at all effective. They’re far too street-smart for that.

“You promised it was only gonna be two weeks.” Six-year-old Jonah Queen has a face that was built for devastation. It’s working pretty well now, as he’s pouting with his arms crossed over his chest. Since he’s the leader of the gang, Estelle and Haley mimic his stance perfectly. Granted, Haley likely has no idea why she’s joined a standoff against Sara. She just wants to do what Jonah’s doing and it’s been a couple of months since she’s seen Sara, so some stranger danger is bound to happen. Estelle’s the one Sara knows she needs to watch for. “But it’s been months.”

22 Jump Street (2014)

22 Jump Street understands the problem with sequels. They reach too far, change the characters too much, and vary too much from the plot elements that worked so well in the original. So, to quote a line that’s repeated in the movie, this sequel aims to “do the same thing you did the first time.” Like 2012’s 21 Jump Street, the follow up is a self aware (to the point of being hilariously meta) parody of action comedies with enough originality to stand on its own as an entry to the genre.

The beginning of the film finds Schmidt and Jenko (Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum) doing less-than-effective police work on the streets of Metro City. Because they can’t be trusted to be actual cops, they are sent back to school - again - to infiltrate and take down a drug ring - again. “Do the same thing.” But, because their cover in high school is blown (and they look too old - there are dozens of great references to this) they’re sent to college.

The formula changes enough to feel fresh. This time, it’s Schmidt who feels left out and useless in the investigation while Jenko excels in the environment. The bad guys are less present in this version, at least until the end, which robs the plot of much urgency; this makes the movie feel longer than it should be. But the change in venue opens the movie up to plenty of great college tropes, and the interplay between Tatum and Hill is good enough to overcome almost any issue.

Two years ago, 21 Jump Street shocked audiences by being funnier than it had any right to be. The film won the game of low expectations. That put 22 Jump Street at a disadvantage. It had a bar to clear. Did it? It’s funny enough, original enough (just barely), and the leads’ chemistry is strong enough.

So, in a word, yes.
