“An unhealthy INFP with a Fi-Si loop can experience extreme withdrawal from the external world, while having a Te grip can cause harsh, aggressive outbursts of negative emotion and is likely to happen if they’ve suffered some kind of significant emotional turmoil, particularly if that turmoil involved a prolonged disregard of the INFP’s values, emotions, or identity.” (x)
Ok, so I loved the new Power Rangers movie. Each and every one of the characters made that movie. I’ve seen a lot of love for Kim, Billy, Trini, and Zack, but not as much for Jason, who was honestly the most relatable one to me. So here’s my contribution to why he’s awesome:
The way he stands up to that guy bullying Billy in detention
How he treats Billy - even before they’re friends, he treats him with respect, with none of the condescending BS that often comes with popular kids sticking up for victims of bullying. And after they’re friends? broTP material.
He makes mistakes. A lot of them. He admits it, accepts the consequences, and does his best from there. (That’s like, the most relatable thing)
His determination - I mean, did you see the way he rode that bike with a broken knee? And of course, in the final battle with Rita.
His friendship with all the Rangers - tell me you don’t love it every time he gets one of them to smile?
He genuinely cares about people and helps them in any way he can.
His motivational speeches to the other rangers.
When he admits he doesn’t know what’s going on, or what is the right thing to do, but he says what he thinks they should do and why - this (along with everything above) is what makes him such a good leader. He’s not perfect and he knows it. He’s going to make mistakes and he’s admitting that upfront. He’s not leading from a desire of power or control, but because he genuinely wants them to succeed as a team.
His relationship with his dad. They don’t see eye to eye, but Jason clearly has a lot of respect for him.
Because Johnny has been staying with Rosita for awhile and is constantly around her kids, he accidentally calls her mom when asking her a question. At first he’s super embarrassed and that Rosita might react to it, but she doesn’t and they carry on normally to his relief. On the inside though, Rosita is so happy she wants to cry because she pretty much already sees Johnny as her son ever since he got there.

On her birthday, here is the infallible, authentic, and pioneering Queen Ava DuVernay collaborating on her many sets.
“Let Ava DuVernay tell the stories she wants to tell in the way she wants to tell them. If one of these stories just so happens to center around a man in spandex, then DuVernay has already exhibited the necessary skill and strength to make this movie, free of studio mandates, legacy liabilities, and fanboy entitlements. At this point, I’d watch her direct a drivers ed tutorial. Like the great cinematic genre-hoppers who came before her, DuVernay’s directorial print contains multitudes, and the future of cinema suddenly seems a hell of a lot brighter knowing that her inimitably unpredictable vision is a part of it.” — Matthew Eng
- A RAINING SCENE: an epic moment talking and “arguing” about their feelings while Ben’s leaving the city, believing Ros is going to marry the Prince. Ben’s being like “I want you to be happy, but I can’t stay here watching you marry him, knowing that you’re his wife. I just can’t” and Ros be like “You heard the proposal, but have you heard what I answered?” Ben: “Does it really matter…?”. Ros: “I refused him. I told him I couldn’t marry him when my heart belongs to another man…YOU”. Ben looks at her with big eyes, whispering “what?” and Ros “I love you, Benvolio” “I love you too, Rosaline” (I read the ILY moment in the book) and then a PASSIONATE RAIN KISS, actually several raining kisses and smiles to each other
- followed by this moment: Ben and Ros get inside Montague house because you know, it’s raining and they’re soaking wet after kissing for several minutes under the rain. They go upstairs, in the Ben’s room next to his bedroom (a study? A sort of living room? I can’t decide) and Ben jokes about reassuring her that he won’t take his honour even though she’s so beautiful it hurts (Ros smiles). They’re drying off themselves and at some point Ben desappears in his bedroom, then comes back with his mother’s ruby ring. Then he kneels down, takes Rosaline’s hand, puts the ring on her finger and she immediately says YES. Ben smiles and says “You didn’t even let me ask!”, Ros giggles, tears in her eyes. Ben: “Capulet, will you marry me?”. Ros: “YES, Montague”, then she makes him stand and KISSES AND SMILES AND HAPPY TEARS EVERYWHERE.
Can we just talk about how Sousuke always has this same look when he talks about Rin/to Rin?
It’s a look that says, “It can’t be helped, since it’s Rin”. It’s a look that says he will do anything to make Rin happy. It’s one part exasperation, two parts gentleness, and the rest is complete devotion.
