I need your help! I’ll have to analyze a movie for my cinema class and that movie should have some sort of connection with the urban space or a particular city. I’ll have to explore the intersection between cinema and the city, storyline vs wherever they are, etc.
this is where you come in: I need movie recommendations! interesting movies such as lost in translation (I can’t analyze that one because we’re already talking about it in class) or even la la land (which I also can’t do it because it’s a very recent movie). basically I need a movie that shows a city very clearly and that I can connect its storyline with the city itself. or any movie that you can remember, really. anything would help.
if you guys could reblog this to signal boost I would be very grateful! or if you know any film enthusiast that could help me pls let me know or direct them to this post!
Katherine was probably the baddest, funniest and smartest bitch Y/N ever met. And she’s her best friend. They were hanging out almost everyday. Doing things like shopping, watching movies and talking about boys together. Everybody who knew Katherine a little better should be aware of the fact that she is the best friend one could possibly ask for. If Katherine truly cares about you, she’ll let you know. So even though she had never done anything to Y/N but protect and care for her. And still Stefan and Damon would throw a tantrum whenever she told them she’s hanging out with Katherine. Y/N was aware that it was because of the history between the, but Y/N had listened to both sides of the Story. She had forgiven Katherine. Because Stefan and especially Damon have been acting rather ridiculous. Y/N didn’t even tell them she was going out, anymore.
‘I’m leaving, Damon,’ Y/N told her brother, who was sitting on the couch, in the living room. ‘ Where are you going?’ Stefan asked. Y/N couldn’t tell if it was honest interest or if Stefan was just trying to make conversation. ‘Meeting a friend in the mall,’ Y/N answered, trying to avoid the question that would follow. ‘A friend?’ he asked,’ but it’s not Katherine again, right?’ Stefan looked at her. Y/N hated lying, but she was late already, so…. ‘No! I’m meeting,ehm, Sarah.’ Stefan furrowed his brows ‘Sarah? Do I know her?’ Y/N was shifting from one foot to the other. This whole conversation was making her uncomfortable. Y/N would have to, finally, move out. ‘No, I have to go now Stefan, bye!’ Y/n kissed her brother on the check and rushed out of the building. ‘ You are way of the fact that she is lying to us, right?’ Damon, who had just entered the room asked his brother. ‘ Of course,’ Stefan nodded.
‘Katherine,’ Y/N called. Katherine turned around. Y/N came closer and they hugged. ‘Where have you been? I’ve been waiting for thirty minutes. And I had to turn three guys down,’ she raised an eyebrow. ‘ I’m sorry, but you know how overprotective Stefan and Damon are.’ Kathrine shrugged and linked her arm with Y/N’s. ‘Ready for our Girls Day?’ she asked. Y/N just nodded. They entered the mall together. Y/N and Katherine were turning head everywhere they went. This was no exception. ‘ So do you want to go to Victorias Secret?’ you asked, smiling at Katherine. ‘No,’ Katherine said,’ I have a better idea. What about truth or dare?’ Y/N chuckled. Katherine always had the best ideas. ‘Sure,’ she answered,’ But you have to start.’ Katherine laughed. That was no problem for her. The two sat done on a bench in the middle of the Mall. ‘Ok, go up to someone and get them to dance with you.’ Y/N challenged. ‘Easy,’ Katherine smirked. She had a special charm that made her irresistible to most people. Katherine walked up to a group of girls chatting and checking they’re phones. She started doing some of the most ridiculous dance moves Y/N had ever seen. The girls laughed but soon they started dancing with Katherine. The people walking by looked at them some of them shaking they’re heads or laughing. After a while Katherine cam back sitting next to Y/N. ‘Alright. Truth or Dare.’ she chuckled, darkly. ‘Dare!’ you answered confidently. ‘Y/N, I challenge you to walk over to this couple and say:, Is that really you, babe? Where have you been? And who is this.’ alright?’ Y/N turned around to look at the couple. ‘Oh my god, Kathrine, I can’t do that.’ Katherine pouted,’ you have to, Y/N, you choose Dare now live with it.’ Y/N glared at her angrily and started walking towards the couple. This was going to be one of the most embarrassing things in her life. She acted as if she was just looking at the things in the store window. Then Y/N turned around. ‘Babe? Is that really you? Why didn’t you text me back? And who is this?’ Y/N pointed at the woman. She was trying hard not to break the role. In the corner of her eye she could see Katherine chuckling like crazy. At least one of them was having fun. The man looked at you confused. ‘John who is this?’ his girlfriend asked. ‘ I have no clue, Babe. I swear to god.’ The girl looked at you, angrily. ‘ I thought you stopped talking to that bitch?!’ she screamed, Y/N took a step back. ‘ I did, Paula. I swear!’ Y/N was confused. Did she just trigger a bad memory? ‘Then who is this slut, huh?’ she stormed towards Y/N and pushed her. ‘Hey! Stop,’ Y/N shouted. ‘ What do you want from my man, huh bitch?’ Y/N started running. Out of all the couples in the mall Katherine had to choose the psycho girl. Y/N looked behind her, The crazy girl was still following her.
Y/N’s day ended with her and Katherine getting kicked out of the Mall. Maybe she wasn’t such a good influence after all.
(my apologies, i got sick and let the queue run out. things should be back to normal momentarily
while i’m here i should take the opportunity to briefly talk aloud about my current situation. i work two jobs and it is slowly but surely killing me. by june i’m looking to drop the fast food service job, however the second job, which is working at a movie theatre, will probably not offer enough revenue for me to comfortably survive on its own.
that being said, i really do enjoy running this blog (or i would even more, if i had more energy to do so since all my time and energy is taken up by the two jobs) and would like to put more time and effort into it. come march and april i’ll start snooping around and see what options i have, if you, lovely person, are interested and willing to invest in a patreon here, that would be something i might do.
i have no idea what i might do with the patreon though, so if you have suggestions, comments, or would prefer something else, send them my way. in the meantime i need to take care of myself and hopefully get rid of this sickness before work starts up again. i have a tendency to overwork myself into this situation, so it’s not uncommon, but it’s never pleasant.
also, and i don’t know how relevant this may be, but i will be walking around emerald city comic con this coming saturday.)
Let’s Talk Headcanons: Sparklings, Part 1! How is babby formed?
Whelp! This is going to be a fun one! After having a blast explaining it to a few people, only to realize that my hands are cramping afterwards, I’ve decide to write out my personal sparkling headcanon for all to read. “Children” have existed, so to speak, in the Transformers franchise since about 1986, when The Movie introduced a few nameless robotic kids running around and laughing happily right before Unicron devoured their world (really, though, why did they show those kids…) and then, later in the film, an orphaned youth the Autobots found on Quintessa… Wheelie. While no explanation of Wheelie’s birth was offered, it’s fairly well-known that the official bio stated that his parents were killed when their ship crashed on the planet. Iiiinteresting…
Later on, the Beast Wars franchise made frequent references to “ancestors,” namely that Optimus Primal is actually a direct descendant of Optimus Prime. Bayverse introduced the idea that Transformers could potentially hatch from eggs… and then, in comic media, gave us breast-feeding Megatron… um? Let’s be honest here, the part of the fandom that is aware of that factoid… well, at least some of us aren’t sure if want. Transformers: Animated teased us with a glimpse of an infant-looking protoform that would become the techno-organic Sari… but never actually got to explain where she came from. And then IDW’s special Silent Light gave everyone a sudden flood of information compared to the brief touches of the previous continuities. We actually got an explanation of what Cybertronian babies could look like, how they could develop… but still no explanation of how they’re made. Well, we know me! That’s where my processors kick it into overdrive!
everyone talks about “did you put your name in the goblet of fire” being the worst book to movie dialogue fail but lets be real the worst is where hermione answers a question in class and snape calls her an “insufferable know-it-all” and in the book ron is furious and he goes OFF and says “you asked a question and she knows the answer! why ask if you don’t want to be told?” but in the movies they just make him say “he’s got a point, you know” and i’m still mad about it

Some of y’all seem to have a problem with CGI Tarkin in the new Star Wars movie Rogue One but let’s get some things straight:
The man has been dead for at least 22 years, so there’s no way to bring him on screen, right? “Why not recast him? They did the same with Mon Mothma.”
They sure did and they sure did recast Tarkin before in Episode III, but nobody talks about this abomination for good reason.
The good news was it was only a cameo from a distance in the film.
It’s unfortunate though because Wayne Pygram is actually a really good actor. I just wish they did a better make-up job.
So that was an example of recast.
People argue that the CGI looks fake and looks better in movies like James Cameron’s Avatar but here’s the thing: it only looks good because the entire world was CGI and contact with actual reality was kept to a minimum. The scene where Sigourney Weaver’s human character is carried by the Navi through the forest actually looks pretty fake.
The entire time, “Tarkin” had to be in contact with real cast members beside him so of course there’s an uncanny valley effect. Have you looked at the job they did though?
Original for comparison:
Certainly better than what happened in Episode III. Besides, the uncanny valley would probably work in his favor since he IS a villain. They’re supposed to be unsettling.
Guy Henry and the people at ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) worked hard and did a damn good job AND they brought Peter Cushing back from the dead. Appreciate the skill, enjoy the damn popcorn, and enjoy the damn movie because Rogue One is a damn good movie.
My neighbour at the time was Polish and we started talking about grandparents and sharing stories and she suddenly said:
“My grandmother was captured by the Nazi’s for taking messages to the resistance and the lieutenant in charge knew she was definitely running messages for the resistance but he had a crush on her so he let her go”
And I was just staring at her in shock because
1. Her grandma was badass
2. It sounded like the premise of a really good movie
3. It wasn’t a big deal to my neighbour. It was just an amusing family anecdote
I became aware at that moment how different World War II is in the minds of Europeans even now compared with most Americans.
