list of pretty movies

Things I'm happy they changed for the Harry Potter movies/added

I always see posts about what we wish was in the movies/they didn’t change, and there are SO MANY THINGS THAT FIT THAT LIST. But honestly the movies did a great job and stayed pretty true to the books. SO, here’s a post to point out the great things the movies did! Please add on and let’s celebrate the movies that brought these amazing books to life!

  • Adding the word Potter to… “Scared Potter?” “You wish.”
  • Showing us what Neville forgot was to wear his robes
  • Bellatrix torturing Hermione by carving the word mudblood into her arm
  • Barty Crouch Jr. licking his lips (good job David)
  • Amos Diggory’s reaction to his son dying
  • “Look at it this way: every great wizard in history has started out as nothing more than we are now – students. If they can do it, why not us?” 
  • In the OotP when they’re in the Hog’s Head a goat walks by… Aberforth owns the Hog’s Head/is the barman
  • Slughorn’s story about Lily and the fish
  • Voldemort hugging Draco
  • Showing Lupin and Tonks reaching for each other and just not touching. It killed me, but I loved it.
  • Continually having Seamus blow up things through out the movies
  • “I’ve always wanted to use that spell!”
  • Showing them just being kids and having fun! PoA scene where the boys eat the candy and make the animal noises

The original NOES is so smart, even in filmic ways: the early nightmares only give you the idea of Freddy, his basic features and what not, and they let him lurk around the settings so you know he can be anywhere, that way the jump scare is earned. And the practical effects are amazing and fittingly unsettling and uncanny

It’s genius. The wall gag is so cheap, I could go buy the tools to recreate that right now, but it’s one of the most effective scares in cinema history. A Nightmare on Elm Street is one of my top ten favorite horror movies. That list changes a lot, but it’s pretty much always there. I think it still holds up. It’s still scary, it really is. 

Freddy is such a minimal presence, but it works perfectly. He’s in the shadows, he’s in the background. Even in scenes where he doesn’t appear, he’s felt. And that’s fucking masterful.

It’s something that I thought about when I just happened to revisit the remake this week. In that movie, Freddy is in every single scene. He’s a punchline to almost every moment, he’ll pop up just to be there. 

It’s almost impossible to create tension when you do that. There’s a lot to be said for restraint. And I think if there’s any movie I could go back to watch it in theaters with an audience for the first time, it might be the original Elm Street. 

It must have been amazing, for this film to come along right when the slasher craze was waning, just when people had thought they’d seen it all, seen teenagers get dispatched with every garden tool imaginable, and then there’s that moment where Tina gets split open by invisible razors and slowly dragged across her bedroom ceiling. 

Nightmare is one of those classic horror films that came along at exactly the right moment and helped to rejuvenate the genre.

Caught in a Web Part 2

Summary: Dan was offered to join Willow Grove Academy, Britain’s most prestigious and renowned private school, on a full scholarship. All of the other students are rich, unlike Dan who comes from a modern lower class society. Things become complicated when he lies about his background to Phil Lester, the most popular and richest boy in the school.

Read part one HERE


During second period French class the next day, Louise attacked Dan for answers.

“You totally lied to me, you are from a family of billionaires!” She accused him. “The whole school’s been talking about you. I feel so stupid now!”

“Oh great,” Dan muttered under his breath, and then said louder, “Look Louise, we’re not friends because of wealth or anything. Phil’s actually a really nice person, and so are Chris and PJ.”

My predictions for ranking 2017 Animated Films

(Without having seen most of them yet)

1. The Lego Batman movie
2. My Little Pony: the movie
3. Cars 3
4. Coco
5. The Story of Ferdinand
6. Lego Ninjago Movie
7. Smurfs: The Lost Village
8. Captain Underpants
9. Despicable 3
10. Rock Dog
11. Boss Baby
12. The Emoji Movie

Now, I have only seen one of these movies as yet (hence why I put it at #1) but since this is just a prediction of my ranking the list is subject to change.

Some explanations for my predictions:

- I put the My Little Pony movie so high up on the list pretty much because I am still a fan of the My Little Pony friendship is Magic TV show, and even though the Equestria Girls movies that were released in theaters didn’t do that great (even with the Bronies hoping to see them) I believe that since this one will be a completely Pony Centric movie it will probably rake in more people and money. Do I think it will actually be a good movie? Well, I can hope.
- Despite the fact that Pixar has released some Duds in the past, I still felt compelled to put their two releases high up on the list just because of their reputation. Again I haven’t seen these so that is subject to change.
- Ferdinand is near the middle since I hope it will be good based on nostalgia, and Smurfs because of the stellar voice cast.
- Lego Ninjago is between them because of the Lego theatrical release track record. They have released some very fun movies and I hope they keep that trend.
- the latter half of my list is not because I don’t think those movies will be good but more so that I think the movies above them will be better.

Feel free to leave your own predictions and we’ll look back at this listing at the end of the year. ^^

What is it with you Striders and Adam Sandler? Are you all like, secretly in love with him or something? Do you all have a shrine to him in the living room? I bet you do.

no no no okay youre missing the entire point
theres no irony here either
feel free to shake your head and sigh because i brought irony up but this is what im based on this shit sets fire in my loins
okay so take a look at every movie adam sandler has done and list the ones that were pretty successful movies 
thats a huge majority of them, the story lines were all pretty decent and what teens and middle aged parents get their rocks off on
but then think about how many movies adam sandler was actually good in? 
yeah just take a moment to think about it
the answer is fuckin none 
that bastard is the most obnoxious asshole in the movie industry and yet almost all the movies hes been in got a huge chunk of money
how the shit does someone suck so bad and still succeed over and over again in making classics everyone just happens to know
adam sandler is a goddamned genius

I hate when people list Hermoine being pretty as one of the problems with the Harry Potter movies because she was just average in the books. When they cast Emma, she was a just an average looking girl and they didn’t know that she was going to be beautiful when she grew up. So stop acting like they purposely made Hermoine pretty when it literally was just how Emma ended up looking by the end of the series.
