TRAIN TO BUSAN

I really hope to see arthit doing the flirting and chasing in this season but i realize it’s Kongphob’s personality and he really can’t breathe for two seconds without saying something completely out of pocket

OKJA

Main reason I decided to watch Okja was because of Choi Woo Shik’s special appearence and Kevin Yeun hehe to my surprise Devon Bostick was in it as well!! ♥ (Rodrick from Diary of a Wimpy Kid)

Okja, a Korean - American film directed by Bong Joon Ho

As we all know Korean movies tend to be realistic and not have the typical happy-ever-after ending. So I watched it knowing that it might end tragically and depressing. One thing that is interesting about this movie is that it talks about GMO. Ever since I was in middle school I did projects about GMO and even had a time when I would check every label (on food) around the house to make sure we did not consume any of that stuff. Is not that GMO is entirely bad, there are benefits, but each person has a choice to consume it or not. And of course I chose not to. I actually don’t know if the GMO debate is still a thing, it’s been a while since I had free time to look up stuff and watch news..

I was exited that such a famous director created a project like this! The cast was well chosen as well. The scenery was beautiful, the transition from the east to the west was awesome…I was just impressed…flabbergasted… it was truly a beautiful…bittersweet film.

Before watching the film I joked about me becoming vegan or vegetarian. The thing about this movie is that it shows the public a glimpse of what happens to animals when they are being mass produced and slaughtered for our consumption. I know that as humans we separate animals into categories, pet, non-pet… our pets are family… non-pets are food. Simple as that. But this story is about this adorable super-pig (Okja) who was created in a lab. She is considered a pet to the owner Mija, but neither know about the cruelty in food industry and why Okja exists. 

[SPOILERS]

I’ll start with a quote from the director Bong Joon Ho

“I wanted to crumble these borders and make the audience feel uncomfortable. It is witnessing your family being dragged into a slaughterhouse”

There were scenes that did make me feel uncomfortable and I cried so much as well. Both Okja and Mija are so innocent.. yet throughout their journey, they mature in a very painful way. Do you know how we get our food? Do you know how babies are born? SEX. in animals it is called “mating”. We all know that in order to “reproduce”, there needs to be mating. But as humans we don’t take a moment to think about whether the animal has feeling or not. Humans just pair the animals up randomly and breed them. The way it was filmed.. it looked like rape. Do you guys know how painful that was to watch. It broke my heart, because throughout the first half of the movie, they make sure you fall in love with this adorable, sweet and innocent super-pig. And it is like her innocence is taken away from her. As I mentioned before… pets = family… it was like watching a family member being raped and about to be slaughtered.

I obviously got too emotional with this movie. I will stop now before I spill the whole movie.. It is great please do watch it ♥

By the way, just in case yall don’t know… I am pretty sure the name of the company Mirando was inspired by Monsanto… look it up hehe.

Also.. the movie does have a slight comical relief ^^ the ALF, they are the animal rights group, during several of the most serious moments..they would do/say something dumb.

anonymous asked:

I'm really disappointed of something Chris retweeted about. It's not even a political thing but I'm feeling really sad now, because I love him and seeing him supporting or let's say, not denying how wrong that is, made me really upset. I guess in the end, nobody's perfect. May I have Stony fic recs where Steve is like the best human being, who really cares for everyone, if it's not too much trouble Sabre? :)

Awwww, sorry you were disappointed!  Here’s a few awesome Steve fics for you!

MOTHER HEN STEVE SAYS GIVE YOUR AUTHORS COMMENTS AND KUDOS!

Tony Stark Defense Squad (Steve’s Had Enough) by @orbingarrow:  The Avengers are called in by the government to “discuss” recent events, but it turns into a game of Let’s Bash Tony and Steve is so not cool with that.Or, the one where Steve Rogers makes himself the President of the Tony Stark Defense Squad. Matching t-shirts to come later.

try and try by cablewires: “Are you sure this is a good idea?”Steve didn’t think it was at all possible, but right now he was even more confused than he was before this whole thing started. He frowned at the brightly colored website Clint had loaded on his laptop. Flirting for Dummies, the title of the article read. Want a guy’s attention but not sure how to go about it? You’ve come to the right article!Steve had a bad feeling about this.AKA the one where Clint helps Steve flirt with Tony via Internet tips. Steve kind of screws it up, but that’s what makes it work.

the thing i’m looking for by sleeponrooftops:  He adores sketching Tony, not only because it’s a brief second of the flittering genius falling still, but also because he always finds something new about Tony that he hadn’t seen before, and it makes him love him even more.

and possibly I like the thrill by queerlyobscure:  Despite knowing that the arc reactor is a marvel of technology and a life-saving piece of equipment, Tony hates it sometimes. He hates that it makes him visible, and vulnerable, and a danger to his team, and he maybe even hates that Steve has to see it all the time. Steve loves it for all the reasons Tony doesn’t, and he’s determined to show him how much it doesn’t matter to him.

i am wide-eyed with a penchant for running by theappleppielifestyle: Steve compliments him on his arms. On his craftsmanship. On his jokes. He makes the rare innuendo that get the whole team snickering after Steve leaves the room. He tells Tony he values Tony in the team, and as a person, and as a friend. He looks at Tony with big blue eyes and an easy smile that comes far too rarely.Tony has no goddamn idea what to do with all this affection. He also has no idea how to respond to it.

In Every Way that Matters by @sineala:  There are bright things about the future, and Steve’s friendship with Iron Man is one of the brightest. So what if he doesn’t know who the man under the mask is? That’s not going to stop Steve from wanting his friendship, or even from wanting something more.

Slipping Off the Page Into Your Hands by @sineala:  Soulmates have their first words to each other written on their wrists. This should make it easy. For Steve and Tony, it is anything but. Steve’s problem is that the future he has awoken into is nothing he was ever expecting: he has a soulmate now. Who might be a robot. And if his soulmate is Iron Man, how can he be so attracted to Tony Stark? It should be impossible. Tony’s problem is that he is Iron Man, his soulmate is a man whom he in no way deserves, and he is going to fight everything in his heart and do his best to make sure Steve never, ever finds out the whole truth.

My Heart is Yours by starspangledsprocket:  Steve is determined, above all else, to win Tony’s heart. Even if it means using old fashioned methods.

Nowadays by cherryvanilla:  In which Steve is proper and Tony is oblivious.

Let Yourself by @blossomsinthemist:   Shortly after Tony gets Extremis, he and Steve end up stranded in the Savage Land, with Extremis mysteriously not functioning and Tony barely functioning, either. Established relationship, set early in the first New Avengers run.

Clan (Of the Stranger and Outcast) by greymantledlady: The Stranger holds out his huge hand towards Tony, palm outwards and upwards.Tony watches him warily, baring his teeth a little, not yet a snarl but a warning. But the Stranger simply holds his hand there, waiting, waiting; and his knife is lying on the ground between them, and there is no threat in the lines of his body.Tony lets out a little breath he’s been holding. And he’s trembling, but he slowly reaches his own hand out, tentative and uncertain, and brushes the fingertips against the Stranger’s calloused palm. And the Stranger smiles a little, his eyes soft, and wraps his fingers around Tony’s.~(The one where Neanderthal!Steve and Homo Sapiens!Tony imprint on each other like baby ducklings.)

Woo Me by Crematosis: Tony has never been good at relationships. After his breakup with Pepper, he’s pretty sure he’ll never find anyone else who can put up with all his idiosyncrasies and it’s probably best if he lives alone.But when Steve decides he’s going to woo him, Tony finds it hard to resist.

Five Times the Avengers Tried to Make Tony Like Christmas (And the One Time They Didn’t) by sara_holmes: In which Tony avoids Christmas because of reasons and Clint is not okay with this.Featuring bickering, unresolved childhood issues, cookies, eggnog lattes, unicorn tree-toppers, man-eating snowmen and Steve being the only sane person in the tower.

Who You Think You Are by Tahlruil:  In a world where no one knows the identity of Iron Man, Tony Stark is the best thing since sliced bread, at least in the opinion of one Steve Rogers. He doesn’t like to let anyone know that - especially not Tony - but one day it sort of slips out. Luckily it’s only to his best friend, and Shellhead won’t tell anyone. What could possibly go wrong?

20 Years Challenge - Day 1: Favourite OD

Farrucas

Farrucas was VM’s 2009/2010 challenge.  At TEB, it was a bit of a hot mess (though emphasis on hot, with more explanation later).  At SC, it got worse – T had a weird day and nearly fell about three times in that program, to the point where Scott literally kept her upright during one moment.  They pushed through, and thankfully, because the slips weren’t on elements, managed to retain their first place standing - and were all the more determined to prove themselves during their FD.  At GPF, the OD cost them a win at their nemesis event.

But VM persevered and worked hard on their OD, and had a breakthrough during the Canadian Nationals.  Their relief was obvious in their celebratory hug at the end of the program. 

At the Vancouver Olympics 2010, the OD was the big question mark.  They sat second after the CD, and knew they had to come out and perform without doubt.  They were clean, dramatic, powerful… and took a well-deserved first place.

Right before the OD at Worlds, word trickled down (in a manner that does not speak well of ice dance) that perhaps VM’s final choreographic lift in the program could be deemed illegal because of ice dance rules - never mind that it had been fine all season.  Knowing that a single mark could mean the difference between a gold and a silver, VM practiced a replacement move a single time backstage and then headed out onto the ice.  Perhaps the injustice of such a moment spurred them on, but they were even more on fire than before, really embracing the characters of the dance, and even more importantly, perfect technically.  Once again, they took a program that had rattled them early in the season, and used it to push them to gold.

Personally, I loved everything about this program.  Their technique was precise and impressive - their midline step sequence was perfection.  The lift was incredibly difficult and surprising – you can literally hear the audience react in Vancouver.  The opening and ending poses were in character and dramatic, as were several choreographic transitions that portrayed Tessa as a cape.  And Tessa’s entire outfit was beautiful, but that red skirt was iconic and flowed like liquid.

Bonus: Scott’s “woo baby!” at the end of the Olympics version is awesome.

Extra bonus: TEB was a hot mess technically, but they certainly didn’t let it affect the performance.  Frankly, it’s amazing that the ice stayed frozen.
