love this film and scene so much

Reason 5439236 the HP movies irk me, particularly DH.

In the book, Hermione dances with precisely one person, Ron. They have a lovely time, and they are making strides in their relationship. It also serves to magnify the emotional impact of Ron’s leaving, as well as his return and redemption.

In the movie, Hermione dances with not one, but two people. Krum at the wedding (the scene was cut, but featured a jealous-looking Ron), and Harry in the tent. Basically, the exact opposite of what happens in the book. All this served to do was make Ron look like the bad guy (as always), lessen the emotional impact of his leaving on Hermione, and also hide the fact that Ron was really maturing and trying to change his relationship with Hermione from friendship to something more. The Harry/Hermione dance was so OOC for Harry as well (I dislike that scene with a passion).

Thanks for robbing us of actually seeing Ron and Hermione dancing together, which ACTUALLY happened. Instead, precious screen time was wasted on nonsense.

Just another example of the anti-Romione bias in the films (not to mention an overall lack of understanding of the characters and unnecessary changes to major plot points).

Don’t even get me started on Malfoy Manor. Or Voldemort’s death scene. Or the burning down of The Burrow. Or Harry & Ginny’s entire relationship. I’ll stop now.

OK I Need To Expand On This

So. This gifset I reblogged yesterday. You guys do not understand how much joy so many of the tags on that post have brought to my life. 

PLEASE RECALL that that post includes nothing but content FROM AN ACTUAL STAR WARS MOVIE. Like, all it took to elicit these reactions was to place two clips side by side of fully-clothed people and everybody is losing their minds. I love this SO, SO MUCH. 

Some people were rendered incoherent: 

Some people weren’t even into it but still had to high-five it: 

Some people just opted to keep it concise: 

Many people appeared to be a combination of upset with themselves and yet feeling a total absence of regret: 

I personally love the ones that are basically just like “…cool”:

…while others just had absolutely no chill left to give: 

AGAIN, PLEASE RECALL THAT THIS IS JUST A GIFSET OF TWO FULLY-CLOTHED PEOPLE IN SCENES FROM THE ACTUAL FILM. 

I think that if the Warrior Cats movie does anything like what The Guardians of Ga’Hoole did, it’d be perfect. That level of high-def animation with plenty of realistic details and behavioral motions, I’d be in heaven. They were able to come up with fantastic character designs while keeping it super realistic and for that first intro scenic flying scene I had thought for sure that it was a real owl before we got up close to their faces. 

Plus they were so talented at keeping the birds realistic even as they used tools and everything.

The shots were dramatic, the fighting was breath-taking.

THERE IS SO MUCH LOVE IN THIS ANIMATION. The owls are so true to form and yet they have such a range of expression, I just love them so much and I would love it so intensely if the Warrior Cats movie took some notes when they think about how they’ll portray our childhood fictional cats.

Let’s be honest, we all called Guardians of Ga’Hoole “like Warriors, but with owls” so if this style doesn’t speak prophecy and dramatic fights and badass but lovable animals to you, kindly get your eyes checked. 

It would be an honor to call the Warrior Cats movie “Guardians of Ga’Hoole movie, but with cats.”

top 50 otps of all time ☆ #45. Peyton Sawyer & Jake Jagielski 

“Yes, losing your heart’s desire is tragic, but gaining your heart’s desire? That’s all you can hope for. This year I wished for love … to immerse myself in someone else and to wake a heart long afraid to feel. My wish was granted and if having that is tragic, then give me tragedy because I wouldn’t give it back for the world.”

Karen Page is so important like really

  • In the comics her character is the worst example of “fridging”, which is where a female character is put through trauma to cause angst for the male hero
  • Karen goes through plenty of trauma in the series however none of it is to facilitate Matt’s angst (he doesn’t even know about most of it???) it’s all to make Karen grow as a character and build her up as a hero
  • The kind of trauma Karen goes through is not the sort of shit you typically see a love interest endure
  • Literally: Karen goes through so much shit and it never even goes near rape-territory. She is proof that you can write a strong female character who goes through horrible things without having to sexualize her trauma 
  • On that note, there is this stereotypical scene in films where after a female character is raped, you see her washing off the shame in the shower. It’s a cliche, and it has sexist connotations because it implies that women should feel dirty after they are raped. Meanwhile, men will get this washing off shame in the shower scene after they do something terrible, like kill someone: they’re washing off the literal or metaphorical blood.
  • KAREN GETS A (NON-SEXUAL TOO!) SHOWER SCENE WHERE SHE WASHES OFF THE METAPHORICAL BLOOD AFTER KILLING A MAN. 
  • She definitely cannot be replaced by a sexy lamp - much of the plot is actually instigated by her investigating.
  • Which is really important? Because Matt has an actual legal parter who the writer’s could have chosen to push the non-Daredevil side of the plot forward and have him doing the investigating with Karen occasionally helping him out, but instead the writers decided to make Karen be the instigator
  • And they do it in such a way that they somehow avoid the “stupid nosy girl who gets in over her head and the hero has to save her from her own messes” cliche. Karen’s investigations are never portrayed as her being nosy, but rather her being tenacious and driven. Plus she gets herself out of her own messes.
  • Again: she kills a man. By shooting him. Several times. In a self-defense yet morally ambiguous way.
  • She’s morally ambiguous in a way women are often not allowed to be in fiction without being painted as a “femme fatal”, yet is still one of the most moral characters on the show.
  • There’s this roundtable that Emma Thompson was on where she said she wouldn’t do roles where the woman says to the man “don’t do that brave stupid thing.” Which is something you see in comics all the time. Yet in Daredevil, we often see the reverse of Matt telling Karen “don’t do that brave stupid thing.”
  • She is a strong character without being written with only qualities that are typically reserved for men. One of her most important qualities is her compassion, something that usually is shown as a weakness but in Karen it drives not only her plot line forward, but the entire plot line of the show.
  • It needs to be reiterated: WITHOUT KAREN PAGE THERE IS NO PLOT. Fisk would have razed Hell’s Kitchen with little to no problems  if Karen hadn’t investigated him and given Matt the information he needed to go after Fisk both legally and as Daredevil
  • Usually when a woman develops a sympathetic relationship toward a serial killing man, it’s because she falls in love with him. But Karen’s odd friendship with Frank was a result of her empathetic abilities and the fact that she killed a man and was projecting her guilty conscience onto him. Which is so much more interesting and compelling, and  typically the sort of well thought-out writing reserved for relationships between two men.
  • And Finally: 
    • “I believe in protecting women”
    • *dryly* “Thanks. From all of us.”
  • So in summation, Marvel movies need to take some serious pointers from Marvel netflix shows about how to write women. 
  • Also Karen Page is fucking incredible.

alright FUCKOS, sit your asses down, cause’ i’m about to tell you all about the two most IMPORTANT scenes in CA:CW and why they were so good and great and significant.

the first one is when tony is talking to peter in his bedroom, and peter begins to tell tony about his powers and why he does what he does. he says to tony, “when you can do what i can, but don’t, when the bad things happen - they happen cause’ of you.

peter is saying that if he were to do nothing with his powers, he’d be responsible for the things he didn’t stop, but could’ve. this is SO FUCKING IMPORTANT because that ideology is a huge part of cap’s stance on the accords. steve stands firmly by the idea that if he’s able to help someone, he has to - or else he has failed in doing what he’s meant to do. tony knows that peter has a point, and at the same time, thinks that peter would agree with cap much more than himself. 

you can SEE IT on his face.

the second scene is when steve and bucky are flying out to siberia, and they begin to talk about bucky’s actions as the winter soldier. bucky is adamant that he’s a murderer, even though he knows it was out of his power to do anything when he was being controlled by hydra. steve tries to tell bucky that he’s not a murderer, because he had no control over any of the things he did. bucky agrees - but in the end, he realizes that he still killed people. even if it wasn’t intentional, even if he wasn’t able to stop himself, he was ultimately the one who murdered innocents. 

‘ you didn’t have a choice. ‘
i know, but i still did it.”

AGAIN, YOU CAN SEE THE REALIZATION ON STEVE’S FACE

he’s quiet after bucky tells him as much because what bucky said is familiar - earlier, tony had tried to make it clear that, even though the avengers want nothing more than to protect people, their battles still cause casualties, and they still are responsible for the damage they caused in the process. steve tried to tell tony that they saved so many people, and THAT’S what’s important, and that the avengers in no way meant to kill those people. but tony’s point remains: regardless of how or why, they were responsible for innocent civilians being killed. and there was no way back from that.

THESE TWO SCENES ARE CRUCIAL.

 even if they seem arbitrary and small compared to the rest of the film, they do so much for both tony and steve. they allow a moment for each character to come face-to-face with what they’re battling, and force them to understand what each side is fighting for. even though it doesn’t change their minds, they both gain insight on the others stance, and it makes the process of fighting one another all the more difficult.

ANYWAY, THIS IS PAINFUL AND I FUCKING LOVED CIVIL WAR. THAT IS ALL.

Lee Sung Kyung Explains Her Tears At Final “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” Filming

The actress stated, “I couldn’t watch the last episode because I was crying. Watching the drama when it aired, I sobbed because I was so sad it was ending. When we were nearing the end of filming the last episode, the director kept saying things like, ‘We have two cuts left,’ and ‘This is going to be our last scene,’ and that made me cry again.”

She smiled as she added, “I’ve cried twice working on a drama, and it was this one and ‘It’s Okay, That’s Love.’ Both were dramas meant to be healing for viewers. Usually, I’m pretty calm and able to keep the tears in, but I cried so much at yesterday’s wrap-up session. When I woke up, my eyes looked like sausages. It looked like when Bok Joo had a pimple.”

This has probably been mentioned already, but I have to get this off my chest

So Star Trek:Into Darkness was a great film - in fact, I loved all three movies. But one little thing that always bugged me was how much Bones was downplayed. I particularly have a lot of feelings for this scene:

Now, there is truth to that - Spock did capture Khan, whose blood was used to generate the life-saving serum. Spock risked his own life to capture a dangerous, near-invincible psychopath for Kirk (even though his initial intention was to kill Khan out of revenge and had to be begged by Uhura to spare his life). So I’m not going to deny the importance of Spock’s role in Jim’s revival (I love Spock, love his friendship with Kirk, not knocking that one bit). But tell me, was it Spock who:

- injected some of Khan’s blood into a dead tribble out of scientific curiosity, to study its incredible regenerative powers?

- discovered that the Tribble had been brought back to life, thus realising that Khan’s blood could be used to bring back Kirk?

- had the quick thinking to cryogenically freeze Kirk’s body in order to prevent his organs decomposing to a point that would be beyond saving?

- took Khan’s blood - breaking countless ethical guidelines in the process - and dedicated his time to generating a serum (surely that must have taken days, if not weeks, to generate a successful serum that could be safely used to medicate a human)?

- carefully nursed Kirk back to health?

Nope, all Bones. Now, I don’t have proof as to what happened during the two weeks Kirk was in a coma, but do you honestly think that this man:

… just carried on as normal? Or do you think he never left Jim’s bedside unless he was physically dragged away by other crew members so that he could eat/sleep before collapsing? Of course, Bones being Bones, he’s very flippant when his part in rescuing Jim is ignored:

… even mentioning Uhura’s part in it, because he won’t take all the credit, he acknowledges all who helped. Because he doesn’t care about recognition or thanks when it comes to Jim - he just wants to keep his best friend ALIVE. But why oh why couldn’t we just get a little acknowledgement from someone else about how Doctor Leonard Horatio “Badass” McCoy literally CHEATED DEATH and brought a dead man back to life as though it was just a normal part of a medic’s life?! The fact that he broke several medical ethics laws, thus risking his whole career, just to give the ship her captain back? WHY DOES NO ONE SEEM TO ACKNOWLEDGE THIS?! And don’t get me started on the fact that he didn’t even get to say goodbye and the first time he sees Jim after the warp core incident is when he is lying in a freaking body bag on one of the biobeds.

Fanvid for fanfic: The stars incline us, they do not bind us. Lots of thanks and love to ikeracity, Pangea and Glacier, for bringing such a wonderful work and for creating my favourite Charles!!!

Have to say that it’s quite difficult to get enough footage for this, as neither JM nor MF played much in Sci-Fi films, so just bear with me with all the Star Trek scenes which do not appear in the fanfic.

thenworld  asked:

may I ask why your relationship with the pride & prejudice (2005) is complex? I love hearing people's opinions about the movie

Now, I do not hold any sort of beef or dislike anyone who prefers the 2005 adaptation over any other adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Partly because everyone’s preference is unique, and mostly because I’m not a massive head of a dick.

My relationship with the 2005 film is complex because there are three parts of me whenever I watch a film.

The director and the writer and the fan.

The director likes the film very much. She adores the editing, how the scenes are lit, how Marianelli’s music so perfectly moves the scenes along and evokes the feelings of the characters, the costumes, the acting. The little touches and production details, she is particularly fond of.

The writer finds the film to be rather middle-of-the-road. There’s good writing in there, wit and some good ideas. (Whoever came up with the idea of Elizabeth and Darcy’s first touch coming through him helping her into the carriage needs to get an award, because so much subtext and the writer lurves subtext.) But she finds that sometimes, the writing is a bit too modern and it doesn’t really properly evoke the Regency era for her as other adaptations have done in the past.

The fan hates some of the changes. The alternative ending shall not be spoken of, for one. Another severely dislikes the overly giggly nature of Elizabeth Bennet. Kiera Knightley is a very good actress, but Elizabeth was always meant to be, for the fan, a bit more serious. Inclined to laugh, obviously, but grounded. Lydia is flighty, flirting without thought for the effect it has on the rest of her family. Elizabeth however, is proud and therefore, pragmatic. By making Lizzy more giggly, zipping about making sarcastic comments, it just makes the film lack a bit of gravitas.

Putting all that together, basically I find that though a beautifully made film, the 2005 adaptation is just too fluffy and too on the nose. I understand that it’s a film and therefore changes have to be made to fit everything into 2 hours, but it misses the mark on a lot, and that makes it, as I said, fluffy. I want some sharpness to my P&P, you know?

Take the 1995 adaptation. I know it’s talky, a bit stagey and a bit stiff in some places but it lies deep in my heart, embedded there for always. Everyone talks about Darcy and Elizabeth being in the thundering rain in the 2005 film and I’ll be honest, that is a fantastic scene with that almost kiss but 1995, HOLY HELL. THIS REQUIRES EXTENDED CAPSLOCK BECAUSE ELIZABETH BENNET LIT UP BY SUNSHINE AS SHE TEARS FITZWILLIAM DARCY, OWNER OF THE PEMBERLEY ESTATE AND EARNER OF 10 GRAND A YEAR,  A NEW ONE.

LOOK AT DARCY.

HE’S REHEARSED THAT SPEECH. YOU KNOW HE HAS. TEN TIMES, OVER AND OVER, IN FRONT OF HIS BATHROOM MIRROR. HIS VALET’S ALL, ‘THE GREEN WAISTCOAT OR THE WHITE, SIR?’ AND DARCY’S JUST LIKE, ‘YOU MUST ALLOW ME TO TELL YOU HOW ARDENTLY I ADMIRE AND LOVE YOU’ AND THE VALET’S ALL ‘UMMMM THIS IS NOT WHAT I SIGNED UP FOR’ (and yes that is a Blackadder Goes Forth reference, what)

ANYWAY. HE SAYS THIS SHIT TO ELIZABETH.

‘YEP, I’LL IMPLY THAT SHE’S SHIT POOR AND IT’LL BE EMBARRASSING FOR ME TO MARRY HER, SHE’S SO GONNA SAY YES RIGHT NOW, GOOD ONE DARCY.’

MEANWHILE LIZZY’S RAGE IS GENTLY SIMMERING IN A POT OF ‘I’M GOING TO KICK YOUR FUCKING ASS.’

THEN, WHEN DARCY’S ALL TALKED OUT, THIS LOOK AND THESE WORDS. AS LIZZY PREPARES TO GIVE THIS FUCKSTICK THE BURN OF HIS LIFE. 

THAT IS A LOOK WHICH TELLS YOU SHIT IS ABOUT TO GO DOWN.

AND DARCY. HE KNOWS HE’S ABSOLUTELY FUCKED. LOOK AT THIS, AND DON’T TELL ME THAT ISN’T THE FACE OF A MAN WHO’S JUST PROCESSED THE WORDS HE’S JUST HEARD AND KNOWS DEEP DOWN HE’S ABOUT TO GET KICKED OUT OF THE BACK DOOR ONTO HIS FACE.

IN FACT, DARCY’S REACTIONS AS SHE TEARS INTO HIM IS A THING OF BEAUTY.

‘THIS IS… NOT GOING THE WAY I PLANNED’

‘THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT GOING THE WAY I PLANNED’

‘OKAY BUT SHE HASN’T TECHNICALLY SAID NO YET, I MAY BE IN WITH A CHANCE’ 

BUT THEN

‘OH SHIT I FORGOT ABOUT THE SISTER’

‘WAIT HOW DOES SHE KNOW ABOUT BINGLEY’

‘DAMN YOU FITZWILLIAM’

‘ALRIGHT FUCK IT, I DID FUCK UP YOUR SISTER’S HAPPINESS SO WHAT’

THEN LIZZY BRINGS UP WICKHAM

‘UGH FUCKING WICKHAM WHY DO WE ALWAYS HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THAT DUDE’

BUT LIZZY CONTINUES AND DARCY REALISES THIS IS ABOUT MORE THAN BASTARD WICKHAM

‘OKAY NO, I HAVE ACTUALLY SEVERELY FUCKED UP’

SO HE TURNS ON HER

‘WELL YOU’RE POOR AND YOUR FAMILY IS SHIT SO WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY TO THAT HUH

THEN LIZZY TURNS BACK TO HIM WITH THIS LOOK.

AND DARCY’S REACTION.

THAT NIGGLING THOUGHT HE HAD DEEP DOWN THAT HE WAS FUCKED – THAT HAS JUST COME LOOMING UP TO THE FOREGROUND, WAVING A FLAG WHICH HAS THE WORDS ‘WE ARE DOOMED’ SPLAYED ACROSS IT IN ELEGANT REGENCY FONT

BUT LIZZY AIN’T FINISHED YET

BEAUTIFUL SUMMER SHINESHINE IS POURING THROUGH THOSE WINDOWS, BIRDS ARE MOST LIKELY TWEETING, THE LEAVES ON THE TREES ARE BURSTING GREEN AND LIZZY IS THROWING EVERY WORD OF HER REJECTION OF DARCY AT HIM LIKE THEY’RE NINJA THROWING STARS OR SOME SUCH SHIT

LOOK AT THAT LOOK. THAT IS THE LOOK THAT PUTS FLESH ON MY BONES, BEATS IN MY HEART, AIR IN MY LUNGS AND FOOD IN MY BELLY.

AND WHAT’S HIS REACTION? WHAT’S THIS FUCKER’S REACTION TO THE MOST SAVAGE REJECTION HE’S POSSIBLY EVER HAD IN HIS LIFE? AS A WOMAN, LIZZY HAS VERY FEW OPTIONS IN THIS ERA. HE COULD RUIN ALL OF THOSE OPTIONS, RUIN HER, BY HEADING OUT OF THERE AND TELLING EVERYONE HE MEETS ‘DON’T GO FOR THAT ELIZABETH BENNET SHE’S RUDE AND UNGRATEFUL AND THE WORST KIND OF WOMAN’ BUT—

HE LEAVES. THIS UTTER WANKER APOLOGISES FOR TAKING UP HER TIME AND NOBLY, QUIETLY, LEAVES, NOT FORGETTING TO WISH HER WELL BEFORE HE GOES.

And suddenly, that’s a glimmer of the good behind the pompous arsehole. He listens to Lizzy’s rejection, savage and filled with truth, and he writes a letter to her in response. 

How very fucking British.

And precisely why my relationship with the 2005 film is so complex.

I can't seem to shut up...

But I love Moana so much….

I literally recognize some of my culture in it…

But there is one that LITERALLY touched me in the heart really really deep…

That was the part where Moana’s grandmother Tala’s ‘aumākua ( Hawaiian language meaning Guardian ancestors or ancestors ) or Nā 'aumākua ( an Ancestor that is manifested as an animal ) is the Manta Ray. when she passes… she will come back as one of them, she will become as one of them, with her ancestors. She will protect and watch over Moana where ever she goes.

And when grandma Tala passed away and manifested into her Nā 'aumākua… guiding and protecting Moana as she crosses the edge of the tides…

That one scene literally touch my heart…

I couldn’t say this enough! Moana is a Polynesian Princess! And this is the FIRST time that Disney has put so much love, effort, and time into this film. It is entertainment, yes, but I seriously recognize ALL of the cultures within this movie, including my Hawaiian culture! I am just… this movie is WORTH watching twice maybe not but watch a BILLION times!!! I love it so much.

This movie still touches my heart in a cultural way. It still makes me cry tears of joy and appreciate for my culture.

Behind the Scenes of The Poison Sky / The Sontaran Stratagem (Part Three)

Excerpts from the DVD Commentary with David Tennant, Russell T. Davies, and producer Susie Liggat:

DT: It’s funny how the weirdest things can be very difficult.  That bit where I chuck that gun away, which has to look terribly carefree, careless, and yet throwing a gun away is so difficult because it’s an expensive prop

RTD: Yeah, yeah

DT: …that you can’t afford to break or scratch.  So to toss it away with such elan, you have to have fourteen people holding up duvets and cushions, desperately trying to catch this gun before it scratches itself or something else.

SL: I think Phil is an ex-rugby player or something because he’s got pretty safe hands, hasn’t he?

DT: Phil Shellard the grand-master of props

SL: He’s a legend

DT: I broke that [the device the Doctor makes in Rattigan’s lab].  There’s a Phil Shellard story!  The first time I did that, hitting that thing with a hammer, the prop broke in two.

RTD: [ laughs loudly ]

DT: And Phil Shellard mended it in about 30 seconds to go for another take.

SL: He was amazing.

DT: And you can’t tell.  Maybe if you freeze-frame you can just see a hairline crack, but I bet you can’t.  Oh you can!  Just at the bottom, see?

RTD: Oh yeah, look there!

DT: Below the red switch.

RTD: You vandal.

DT: Sorry
