lots of yellow in this movie

FYI on the Yellow Ranger in the Power Rangers 2017 Movie

I just got back from watching it, and while surfing through the tags I’ve seen a lot of posts claiming that the movie was merely queer-baiting.

Spoilers below this point!!!!!!!

I did not see it that way AT ALL.

Trini did not verbally say, “I’m a lesbian,” but that does not take away at all from her coming out to the others.

She mentions that by going from school to school, her parents didn’t have to worry about her relationships and she also states that her family is normal, which means her parents didn’t have to worry about their daughter being with another girl and being “abnormal”.

In the scene where she shares her sexuality, not once does she say she’s a lesbian. HOWEVER, the truth is in her delivery. When asked about boyfriend problems, she scoffed and sarcastically said, “yeah, boyfriend problems”. That weird reaction made Zack rethink his question and then said, “Girlfriend problems?”

Trini didn’t confirm or deny that it was girlfriend problems, not verbally anyways.

In the scene she tears up, her body language closed off and vulnerable, and she’s only able to tell them about her family and how her parents want her to be a certain way. That right there is what tells you that she isn’t straight.

People are getting mad that she didn’t just outright say that she was lesbian, but honestly I’m glad they didn’t do it that way. Here’s why: COMING OUT TO PEOPLE IS HARD. I myself came out to my mother a little over a year ago (I’m aromantic and asexual!!!) and that was THE HARDEST THING I have ever done!!! I was so scared of telling the truth that I never once told her verbally that I was aro and ace, instead I came out to her in a text during school. Verbally confirming one’s sexuality to someone they fear will reject them is so incredibly hard. It was difficult for me and I’ve known my mother since she gave birth to me! I would never expect Trini, the new girl, to tell five kids she had just met her whole life story, especially not when it could end up with her being ridiculed and possibly hurt.

There was no queer-baiting. The story was written realistically and I appreciate the emotional acting that went along with it. Trust me that movie was COMPLETELY respectful and not baiting anyone.

Here’s how ‘Power Rangers’ addresses Trini’s sexuality

  • The Power Rangers movie will do something the original live-action series, and no major superhero film, has done before it: feature the first LGBTQ superhero.
  • The news comes from Power Rangers director Dean Israelite, who spoke with the Hollywood Reporter. The Yellow Ranger, Trini, played by Becky G addresses her sexuality while still “questioning a lot about who she is.”
  • “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet,” Israelite tells the Hollywood Reporter. “I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, 'That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”
  • The news of Trini’s sexuality was quickly praised on the Twitterers. We have a description of the exact scene in which Trini talks about her sexuality (spoiler warning): Read more (3/20/17 6:51 PM)

If Ben & Sophie did a romantic movie together

La Belle et le Bete... the 2017 spin

I just saw Beauty and the Beast and…

Well…

How does a moment last forever?

The thing about Beauty and the Beast… I was too young to see it in the theatres, and my father bought me a laser disc copy to watch a year later. I fell in love with Belle, Belle’s dress (and that was why yellow was my favorite color as a child), and the whole magic of this story. Beauty and the Beast (1991) holds a very important piece of my childhood – this movie means a lot to me.

Wat?

So there’s a whole bunch of bandwagon-ing SJWs jumping to the conclusion that the movie “Sing” is displaying racism because the gang that ends up in jail are gorillas, comparing them to people of colour.

What?

They do realise that it is a movie based on animals…that they chose gorillas because obviously being a thief is a lot easier if you have muscle and opposable thumbs…and that gorillas are black? Did they want pink gorillas? Maybe a nice shade of yellow?

Oh, and the voice actors for the two main gorillas are Taron Egerton and  Peter Serafinowicz.
You know….fucking WHITE BRITISH ACTORS


And then they go on to say that “there is further unrest over Sing featuring Gunter, a pig voiced by Nick Kroll, who is German.”

Who the fuck cares? Why is that racist? Is being born in a different part of the world racist?
There is obviously non-german pigs (as shown by the other main character pig, Rosita) so why is demonstrating that not all of one species comes from one part of the world racist?

It’s like they want it to be offensive so badly, that they sit down and think how it could be offensive and not if it actually is.


I….I don’t even know anymore.

ok everyone - what are your honest to goodness opinions on the batb trailer?

  • i am actually onboard with the design for cogsworth and lumiere (if you forget about his accent)

  • i hope mrs. potts gets smashed she’s terrifying 
  • chip is cute but i wasn’t expecting that voice
  • CGI beast is less but at the same time even more terrifying when he speaks BUT i do really like his speaking voice

  • GASTON IS 🙌😩😩💯💯😩🙌👌👌🙌💦💦👌👌😩😩💯
  • overall i think the movie will be fairly good and a lot better on the big screen and not just random bits and pieces of the movie. 

what are your opinions?

I got to see a sneak peek of Beauty and the Beast at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this week (which was basically Belle + Belle (reprise) - it was great btw, Luke Evans was the best part) and they also had the yellow ball gown that Emma Watson wore for the movie!

I wasn’t particularly impressed with the dress with just the footage that I had seen but now, after seeing it in person and admiring all the little details, I’m absolutely in love with it!  It is much more impressive in person than on camera, and it’s sad that not a lot of people will appreciate it..

alright just since i feel like i’m gonna spontaneously combust if i don’t at least say one thing about the colours in this movie, at the beginning of the day at he end of the movie they show a mostly empty parking lot, and if you look you’ll notice

- a yellow car all by itself near the back

- a red car almost in the front

- a green car that drives in and parks slightly farther up than the red car

- and a black car that drives in last

April redesign, because why not?

So, I’ve seen that there’s this cute trend of turning April into a black girl, since the original comics featured a black April and the idea appealed to me immediately.

I want to say, first and foremost, that I don’t like the 2012 version of April. 

I’ve just recently fallen into the tmnt fandom but I’ve already watched the 2003 series, the 2014 and the 2007 movie. WELL I liked THOSE Aprils a lot more. Heck, I’ve liked Megan Fox BETTER than this one, wtf.

Anyway, no one cares about my ramblings about April NoPersonality O’ Sue, SO I’ll get straight to da point.

Black Teenage April.

Red hair: check. Who said she has to be a natural redhead?

Yellow something: check. 

comfortable clothes to hang out with mutants: check.

Also, I have to add that being a caucasian italian girl, I can’t really hope to portrait a black american girl correctly, so yap, I’ve just mixed the idea of living in a city such as NY with the image of the african people I’ve met here.

This April of mine is a nerd in her own way and she doesn’t really care about most of the things that should matter in the life of a 16 years old girl.

She loves comfy, large clothes that won’t get in the way no matter what she is doing, be it walking around, reading, playing videogames or doing the shopping. As the tomboy she is, she doesn’t fit really well in the world of her fellow teenage female buddies, hence liking male company a lot more.

As the black women I’ve meet or observed in Italy, this April takes no shit from no one. She’s not physically strong, she’s not a fighter and she doesn’t train or really care about sports, BUT she will try her best to land a punch or a kick to defend herself or someone else, and won’t wait for anyone to do it for her. She speaks her mind and stands her ground even when she is scared. And she DOES feel scared quite often, but tries her best to fight it. She’s got a complex personality, given by her natural cheerful nature mixed with the discomfort she often feels.

Overall, she’s focused, funny, daydreaming, and can be really sweet and protective. However, as flawed as every other human being in this world, she’s also stubborn, cynical, a bit moody and sensitive.

Being a bit of an outcast and having hard times falling in any kind of human category, she doesn’t really have the brighest self-esteem ever. She often feels like she really has no real places to go or to belong to, and that something might be wrong with her.

For the same reason, she feels like helping people a lot, trying her best not to judge them for their choices and for what or who they are, but rather trying to understand what might have brought them to make some choices or live in a certain way. She loves to talk a lot to strangers :D

That’s exactly why she would immediately fit the tmnt family like a fucking tetris piece.

From Leo, she’d learn how to be someone to be looked up to and how to be reliable when needed, and it would be a fancy clashing of asian and african culture.

Mikey would be her hakuna matata buddy. Period.

With Raph, she would have someone who understands her in almost every possible way. The burden of feeling inadeguate, unworthy, different, and the desire of correcting the wrong in the world by doing small things. The love for desperate and messed up people. And he would totally try to train her in some sort of way, some basic defence moves or stuff like that.

With Donnie, she would have the weirdest relationship ever. Unlike the canon 2012 April, they would have little in common to speak about and he would NOT have a crush on her. And that’s why their relationship gets funny and absolutely out of the ordinary. He would be his usual scientific self, and she would not understand a single word out of his mouth; she would even try to learn something but wouldn’t be able to take it seriously. Whetever he’d try to give a logic answer to something, she’d just reply back with a spiritual/phylosophical one.

One of the things I like to think about tmnt being set in New York, is that you can mix all of those cultures that have basically never met each other and “force” them to interact.

And meeting them would surely help her grow up a lot. She’d finally understand that she can cut her own place in the world, and would most probably choose to become either a police officer or a psychologist. 

Dunno, I might be putting too much time into this, but I’m really having fun c:

The final necessary apologize cuz I’ve surely made at least ONE mistake with my fancy English.

Power Rangers is one of the films I am looking forward to the most this year. Let’s look at the diversity in the film. Got too long so I’m putting it under the cut.

Keep reading

Just watched power rangers. Trini is a lesbian but it’s just mentioned that she has girlfriend trouble and she changes the subject to her latin family being too traditional. We don’t get to see a lot of their personal life’s but I think it was a good representation.
She didn’t died, she addressed that her sexuality is complicated to herself and her family.
We are going to get more movies and hopefully we’ll see her with a girlfriend.
Plus: when I was a kid I always wanted to be the yellow one and her being gay it’s the best thing ever.

'Power Rangers' Breaks Ground With First Queer Big-Screen Superhero

[Warning: This story contains minor spoilers for the Power Rangers movie]

Power Rangers is breaking down a barrier no superhero movie has before. The Lionsgate reboot of the ‘90s children’s TV show is the first big-budget superhero movie to feature an LGBT protagonist.

During Power Rangers’ second act, there’s a scene in which the titular heroes learn that the Yellow Ranger Trini (Becky G) is coming to terms with her sexual orientation, with one character assuming she’s having “boyfriend problems,” and soon realizing that perhaps she’s actually having “girlfriend problems.” It’s a small moment, but one director Dean Israelite calls “pivotal” for the entire film.

“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is,” Israelite tells The Hollywood Reporter. “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet. I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, 'That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, 'That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”

LGBT representation in superhero films has trailed that of comic books, where heroes and villains such as DC’s Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Batwoman and Harley Quinn, as well as Marvel’s Ice Man, are among high-profile examples of LGBT characters. But so far, when these characters have been translated to the big screen, they have been portrayed as straight. X-Men’s Northstar, the first openly gay character from either DC or Marvel, was introduced in the comics in 1992.

Original Blue Ranger actor David Yost, who is openly gay and left the 1990s Power Rangers series after facing harassment over his sexual orientation, praised the new film for its inclusiveness.

“They really stepped up to the plate,” says Yost. “I think so many people in the LGBTQI community are going to be excited to see that representation.”

In the original Power Rangers series, the Yellow Ranger was played by the late actress Thuy Trang, who is credited as the character for 81 episodes from 1993-94 on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The original character was portrayed as straight.

Power Rangers comes on the heels of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast live-action remake, in which Josh Gad plays Disney’s first-ever gay character, LeFou. In the sci-fi movie world, last year’s Star Trek Beyond revealed that Sulu (played by John Cho in the rebooted Star Trek movie universe), was gay. The original version of the character, played by George Takei, was straight. 

Power Rangers opens Friday.

theoneandonly-jenxx replied to your post “Beauty and Beast Thoughts (in brief)”

They really should have changed the keys of Emma’s songs. She’s clearly an alto, and I’m pretty sure the original voice actress was a soprano, so it makes sense that she would fall flat. I can say as a trained Alto 2 that it can be really hard to learn to stay “on top of the notes” in a mid-range song without a lot of coaching.

I’m 90% sure Belle is an Alto 1 or Mezzo part (definitely not a straight-out soprano–I’m a mezzo and can sing the part very comfortably). Changing the keys might have helped, but with such well-known songs that is really tough. They don’t change the parts for the singer on Broadway except in extraordinary circumstances, and the same goes for movies. And they already made a lot of concessions for Emma Watson, such as allowing her to design the yellow dress and such … to me, it seems the problem was a lack of vocal training. She wasn’t shaping her mouth correctly for her vowels and it didn’t sound like she had proper breath support. With more training she might be actually good, but she was nowhere near ready for this part. 

(and I just gotta say if I didn’t already that it was a tragedy and a crime against both of them to make Emma sing a duet with Audra)

So, about that yellow dress in the new BaTb movie....

A lot of people aren’t fans of it, myself included.

But, I realized that I’ve never really specified why I don’t care for it….other than saying “it looks like a prom dress”.  And I think it was because I didn’t really know why it bothers me. 

So I’m going to try and articulate that!

First, I’m going to say some nice things about it….I just saw some photos of the dress from where it is currently displayed and I have to say, I never noticed some of the details until now.  I like the stomacher pattern on the bodice and I couldn’t really see it when I watched the trailers.  And in it’s display, it looks like it has either a large petticoat or a soft hoop underneath the skirt, which gives it a much fuller “ball gown” look, which I do like better.  And it’s interesting how the dress is actually pale yellow, but the cinematography of the film makes it look bright yellow.  Personally, I prefer the paler shade of yellow.

Ok, moving on….As I said before, the dress reminds me of a prom dress….or even a wedding dress that’s been dyed yellow.  It feels waaay too modern for this movie. 

Let’s compare.

This is an 18th century ball gown:

Not sure exactly what part of the 18th century this is from, but it’s a place to start.  The dress has stiff, heavy fabric, lace, embroidery, and probably large bustles, hoops and petticoats underneath.

This is the dress from the 1991 movie:

Now, as you can see, it’s not 100% historically accurate, although when you see cosplays or Belle at the parks, the dress is usually made of a stiffer fabric, which helps it look a little more period correct. 

Also, I don’t think it was ever confirmed exactly when the animated film takes place, so they’re allowed a little more leeway with their costume design. 

But the new film takes place before the French Revolution which started in 1789.

Here is the dress from the new movie:

I know the picture is tiny, but it’s the best one I could find of the silhouette.

Now, like I said, there’s more detail on it than I realized, but this just doesn’t work for me as a whole dress….at least not for one set in this time period.  If this was used in say, a teen movie and the main girl showed up at the prom with this dress, I’d say it was perfect and incredible.  And it is a beautiful dress.  Just not for this movie. 

Now I know Belle is being praised as “ahead of her time” in this movie….but there is no way that she is so ahead of her time that she created an early 21st century formal gown.  And I heard a theory that it kind of looks like she maybe could have taken the sleeves off of an 18th century gown, and that could be the case….but that doesn’t make the skirt work.

I like the idea of her taking a ball gown from that era and sort of deconstructing it into something she likes….but there’s no way she would have arrived at this dress.

I’m just gonna throw out a couple of ideas…

If they wanted to keep the top they created for the film, maybe find a less flow-y material for the skirt.  Choose something a little stiffer, not quite as heavy as an actual 18th century gown, but something that helps create a more “ball gown” silhouette vs. an A-line (though I will say it looks much more like a ball gown in the display pictures).  Or at least wear a petticoat underneath to give it more body.  And instead of the layers of fabric on the skirt, use pick-ups to create the layers.  Maybe not the bunched up pick-ups of the original, but maybe something more pleated….something sleeker vs. the poofy look we see on wedding dresses all the time….where it looks like they picked up the overskirt and showed us a different fabric underneath.

Or if they wanted to keep the more flow-y skirt, then they need something more for the top.  I actually think the dress would look better if it had elbow length sleeves, with a little lace or a small ruffle coming down.  Maybe with roses on there to decorate as well? 

Little changes like these I think would help tie the dress into the world a little better.  Especially since all the other women in the movie are dressed like their in the 18th century.

If nothing else, I think the dress just needs more detail….either more sparkle, some kind of embellishments, like roses for example, or maybe have used two different colors in the dress itself.  I think one of it’s main flaws is that it’s almost too simple.  The eye doesn’t dance trying to catch all the details, and so you don’t really know where to look.  Though, like I said, you see more in the display pictures than you do in stills from the movie….but that’s a filming problem, not a design problem.

In conclusion (wow, this post got long), I think they made a very pretty dress.  But they made a pretty dress that would work better in another movie.

FYI, I’m not a costume designer and in no way an expert….I only took two costume design/construction classes in college….

on the ‘trolls’ movie

okay i know the designs aren’t the most appealing and the movie itself doesn’t look great but man can we talk about that color scheme because hOLY SHIT

iTSSO COLORFUL

AND LOOK AT ALL THOSE PASTELS

I’m so blown away with how the coloring on this thing looks, I’m pretty surprised it’s coming from dreamworks, as it’s usually Disney that turns out the really nice color schemes, while every other animation stuido seems set on obnoxious bright ass blue and orange (and yellow) overlaying uncreative neutrals

And don’t get me wrong, I get WHY this color pallet is so popular, its bright with a lot of contrast and grabs people’s attention, but my god, when this is the color pallet LITERALLY EVERY OTHER KIDS MOVIE HAS, it becomes too much and just looks like paint vomit. I’m so glad a mainstream non-disney movie is coming out that breaks this tired ass mold. Bare in mind that antagonistic color schemes are only one of many type of color scheme. This is something I also really like about Disney’s frozen

the cold bright blues are contrasted so nicely with warm oranges and deep purples, it almost looks like an oil painting at times.

HOLY SHIT

ok so if the transigen kids were born in the lab and raised there and hadn’t ever seen the sky or anything, they’ve been kept inside all day. the facility is fully concrete/cement. 

plus, in hospitals and labs biohazard waste is disposed of in plastic bags, not buried. those little yellow bags that you see in movies? one of those. the kids would just be tossed in there after whatever medical information or postmortem research was conducted.

burials are a social thing, and varies a lot from culture to culture. so, for the kids to know to bury logan and more specifically, know to put a cross up and give a speech, that means that they must have learned it from somewhere.

i think that the nurses at at least some point buried one of the kids who died and even gave a eulogy. and one of them put a little cross up to mark the grave.
