Hi, sorry you’re not gonna have a fun Thanksgiving. :( So to make you happier, tell us about everything you liked about the Wonder Woman movie!!!!
BOY let me tell you I have too many favorites but my favorite scene of all of it was No Man’s Land like,,, best scene in any movie ever and then of course the music?? like when they played the Wonder Woman theme at some points Idk man I’m in love and aLSO when she just like blocks that one bullet from hitting Steve in the alleyway and then just kicks the bad guy’s asses >>>>>>
NGL I hate how white girls incriminate Maui and try to paint
him off as a sexist figure for stealing the heart. Yes, stealing the heart was
bad but we’re conveniently forgetting that the humans asked him to take the
heart for their own selfish greed. Maui did anything the humans asked and that
was just to prove the selfishness of humanity. He didn’t steal the heart because
he was a man and Te-Fiti was a woman, he stole it because the humans asked him
to get it for them, just like he got them everything else (he sang a song about
this y’all). So yes, go ahead and interpret the movie anyway you want, but don’t incriminate Maui. I am tired of seeing white girls acting like he’s a misogynistic
freak when the whole point of his character was to point out the flaw of
humanity. But oh well, here we go with white girls completely incriminating another
moc. Like there is a post floating around equating Maui to male violence and well, way to go white girls completely missing the fucking point and being racist tbh.
(also if you see this please reblog it, i hate that maui is now some icon for male violence. especially being a moc torn apart by white tumblr)
The slow burn where they both love each other but think the other person doesn’t feel the same way but literally everyone in the world knows how they feel about each other.
They absolutely loathe each other but everyone around them knows that they actually totally love each other.
Royalty/Commoner ESPECIALLY when the commoner didn’t know they were royalty and feel so betrayed when they find out.
I mean really, any version of the Person A is hiding something about their identity for decentish reasons and Person B eventually finds out and is just so betrayed and Person A has some version of the “I didn’t mean for it to happen, but it did. I fell in love with you.” (Chasing Liberty is my favorite, okay?)
Also the “we’re from different worlds” version, too.
And of course Person A is trying to rescue/find/reunite with they significant other and Person B gets enlisted to help but then totally falls in love but thinks Person A really loves sigo, but when they finally are reunited they realize they really love Person B.
GET TO KNOW ME MEME| [ 2/5 ] animated movies: Tangled ↳ You smell that? Take a deep breath through the nose. Really let that seep in. What are you getting? Because to me, that’s part man-smell, and the other part is really bad man-smell. I don’t know why, but overall it just smells like the color brown. Your thoughts?
One of the greatest things about Spiderman homecoming?
Not only Peter, canonically a teenager, is portrayed by a teenager. HE 👏 ALSO 👏 FUCKING 👏 BEHAVES 👏 LIKE 👏 ONE
Like, teenagers make mistakes, okay? They fuck shit up, get scared and generally don’t behave in a mature way. Because, well, they’re not mature, they’re damn teenagers. And every single Spiderman movie ever made completely forgot about that. But not homecoming, sir, not homecoming. I feel blessed.
WHY DO ALL THE DIRECTORS KEEP DOING THIS WITH JENNIFER LAWRENCE.
WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU.
JENNIFER LAWRENCE IS MY EXACT AGE. PEOPLE WHO ARE TWENTY-SEVEN ARE NOT MARRIED TO JAVIER BARDEM.
JAVIER BARDEM IS FORTY-EIGHT. JAVIER BARDEM IS LITERALLY OLD ENOUGH TO BE MY DAD. AND JENNIFER LAWRENCE’S DAD.
IT IS 100% DEAD CERTAIN THAT THIS STUPID MOVIE IS GOING TO PRETEND LIKE THERE’S NOTHING WEIRD ABOUT JENNIFER LAWRENCE AND JAVIER BARDEM BEING MARRIED. IT’S NOT THAT THEY COULDN’T BE MARRIED, GUYS. IT’S THAT IT SHOULD BE WEIRD.
IF THEY’RE THE ‘IDYLLIC’ COUPLE? THEY’RE GONNA DO THE SAME BULLSHIT STUPID THING EVERY MOVIE JENNIFER LAWRENCE HAS BEEN IN POST-THE HUNGER GAMES, WHERE THEY PRETEND LIKE SHE’S FORTY-FIVE.
MOVIES ARE NOT HIGH SCHOOL PRODUCTIONS OF DEATH OF A SALESMAN, OR EVEN COLLEGE PRODUCTIONS OF WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF, WHERE WE ALL POLITELY APPLAUD FOR THE TWENTY-ONE YEAR OLD PLAYING A SIXTY YEAR OLD BECAUSE IT’S SHOWING HER RANGE SO WELL.
IT’S SO SEXIST. NOT ONLY ARE THEY GIVING THESE PARTS CLEARLY WRITTEN FOR MIDDLE AGED ACTRESSES TO JENNIFER LAWRENCE–WHO, TO CLARIFY, ALTHOUGH WE ARE THE EXACT SAME AGE AND I GOT CARDED AT A RATED R MOVIE LAST MONTH, HAS A BABYFACE AND LOOKS LIKE SHE COULD STILL BE PLAYING HIGH SCHOOL KIDS–WHICH IS BAD ENOUGH, BECAUSE UGH, MIDDLE AGED ACTRESSES FAMOUSLY CAN’T GET WORK IN HOLLYWOOD, ESPECIALLY FOR ROMANCES LIKE EVERY STUPID MOVIE SHE’S BEEN IN WITH BRADLEY COOPER.
(A MAN WHO IS 42. NOT QUITE OLD ENOUGH TO BE MY DAD, BUT NOT YOUNG ENOUGH TO BE ANYTHING TO ME BUT ‘KIND OF CREEPY UNCLE.’)
AND THAT’S ANOTHER THING. IT’S GROSS TO ME, TO SEE AN ACTRESS IN HER TWENTIES PLAYING ROLES THAT THE DIALOGUE INDICATES ARE FOR MUCH OLDER WOMEN–BECAUSE IT’S ERASING THE REALITY OF WHAT REAL WOMEN ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE, WHEN THEY’RE IN THEIR FORTIES AND FIFTIES AND SIXTIES, BECAUSE IT’S REINFORCING THE IDEA THAT THERE ARE NO FEMALE PARTS THAT SHOULDN’T BE PLAYED BY A WHITE WOMAN IN HER TWENTIES, AND BECAUSE IT’S NORMALIZING THE GROSSNESS OF THE MIDDLE AGED MAN’S FANTASY THAT HE COULD HOOK UP WITH A TWENTYSOMETHING AND NOT ONLY WOULD SHE BE INTO IT, NONE OF HIS FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS WOULD GIVE HIM THE SIDEYE ABOUT IT. IT’S WHAT LEADS TO STUPID MALE NOVELS ABOUT CO EDS FALLING IN LOVE WITH PROFESSORS. IT’S THE LITERALIZATION OF STUPID MALE FANTASIES ABOUT A WOMAN WHO IS JUST LIKE YOUR WIFE, BUT YOUNGER AND SEXIER AND MORE INTO YOU (ALSO SHE NEVER NAGS YOU ABOUT THE DISHES.)
I HATE IT SO INTENSELY.
and that’s why i wrote this post all in caps. thank you and good night.
I adore the duality of Tony Stark. Not the secret identity thing, but this idea, one that you get to see more of in the comics than the films (though IM1 did this a lot): the idea that there’s this aloof, cold businessman who puts on perfectly-tailored suits and snarks his way through a room and destroys opponents without a thought using an offhand quip, and resorts to pragmatism when nobody else will, and wears his playboy persona on his sleeve, and knows all the easiest ways to blow up a person or a world, and has a bit of a god complex, and used to be called the Merchant of Death -
- but he’s also the guy who wanders around like a zombie before the first coffee of the day, and works with his hands, and spends his time with mad-scientist hair and wearing scruffy vests covered in oil because he got caught up in his hard work and his passion for creation. He’s the guy who will do anything for his friends and makes silly jokes over breakfast and wholeheartedly, dorkily loves the Avengers, from the concept of it to the people in it. He falls hard for the people he loves, and is incredibly lonely. He’s the guy who goes to orphanages and holds babies when he can’t sleep, and adores kids. He’s the guy who cries easily, never thinks he’s doing enough, struggles with alcoholism and chronic illnesses, and desperately doesn’t want to be his father, no matter how much the media pins the opposite on him. He loves the world and the people in it, even when he kind of hates them, and is constantly working to make things better. He remembers his employees’ names and asks after their families. He tries to see the good in people and goes for rehabilitative over punitive justice wherever possible, even when it comes to villains who have actively tried to kill him. He’s known for how much he cares, exhaustingly, about everything. He’s the man who honestly has a good heart and is constantly trying to reach out, and often gets laughed at for his idealism. He’s a man who’s so often in pain, but tries to use it to improve the world rather than letting it destroy him.
Sure, I like his ruthlessness and some of his coolness, but I also love the guy who unironically adores classic Star Trek and makes absentminded Dune and Arthurian references and thinks equations are cool; who makes mental notes of his friends’ favourite breakfasts and takes young heroes under his wing and is semi-jokingly horrified when one doesn’t have a file system. Who goes “but why does that do that?” and wants to take everything apart and fix it so it can help people, and honest to god believes in a better future.
(The movies are subtler about that side of him, but it’s still there. I mean, as a little thing, I’m always grateful they let RDJ put some of his own love of classic and sometimes silly rock into Tony Stark. Not just because I share that music taste, but I always like characters who are nerdy and wholehearted about at least something. But the bigger stuff, too: the between-the-lines moments: the naming his bots, the “here, have my whole R&D lab/my company/my home/my heart if you want it, why do you look so surprised?” That’s all straight from the comics. It’s just done slightly more snarkily and with a slightly shorter, brown-eyed Tony rather than a tall, blue-eyed one.)
get to know me [2/5] favorite films ⇄ interstellar (2014) We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we’ve just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we’ve barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.
