Okay but imagine this: Shimada Bros. Princess and the Pauper AU
Hanzo is the firstborn son of a king and queen, destined to rule next as heir. However, his parents have been getting into some shady business with the criminal underworld to keep up their wealth. The kingdom ends up in so much debt that the royal family has no other choice but to give up their second son, Genji, to the leader of the mafia in order to repay it. Genji ends up given away to one of the mafia’s many front businesses as a tailor under master seamstress Satya Vaswani, working his whole life to save up enough to run away while his brother lives a life of luxury, each oblivious to the fact that the other exists.
Fast forward to when Hanzo is about 22, and Genji is about 19. The kingdom is having money troubles again, but the Shimada family has learned their lesson with the mafia and what that can lead them to. They instead decide to marry Hanzo off to a princess from a wealthy neighboring kingdom, one Angela Zeigler. Problem is, Hanzo is in love with palace guard Jesse McCree, a peasant he knows his parents will never allow him to be with. As a treat, Jesse takes Hanzo out into the village surrounding the castle in order to experience a first (and last) taste of freedom before he marries Angela. There Hanzo meets Genji. The two are shocked at how similar they are in both appearance and desire for nothing but freedom from their inescapable duties. They concoct a plan; Genji will pose as the prince for a few days to finally have a taste of life out of indentured servitude, while Hanzo will take Genji’s tailoring job and finally learn how life is like outside of the castle walls.
While this is all happening, the captain of the palace guard, Gabriel Reyes, has been secretly embezzling money from the royal family, which is why they are in so much debt that Hanzo must be married off. Gabe, along with his two henchmen Amelie and Sombra, plan to strongarm the royal family into marring Hanzo to Gabriel and then “getting rid of” them all so Gabe can usurp the throne. However, when Hanzo is promised to Angela, the three are forced to change their plan. They plan instead to kidnap Hanzo, get Angela to leave since there is no prince to marry, and then return the prince and be hailed a hero. They all believe that the family will be so grateful that Hanzo has been returned that they will give him Hanzo’s hand in marriage out of joy that their only son has been returned to them.
Cue shenanigans with the Shimada Bros. learning how each other lives, finding out they’re brothers, peasant Genji falling in love with princess Angela, Hanzo and McCree already head-over-heels for each other, the Talon trio attempting to usurp the throne, and everything else that comes with this absolutely beautiful Barbie movie that I know way too much about.
“Chega aqui, vou por uma coisa pra tu ouvir mas não quero que se assuste. Na real eu nem sei se isso é verdade, mas vai que, né? Preciso de alguém trevoso junto comigo pra testar. Isso é um cd trouxa que no Brasil é muito usado pra invocar o sinistro ou as caiporas de lá - que são quase a mesma coisa, se quer saber. Dizem que se tu colocar o cd pra tocar ao contrário, a porra louca acontece, ta afim de tentar comigo? O nome é “XUXA, Only for little wizards”. E se tu não quiser, eu posso ensinar uma coisa muito popular por lá: Sarrada in the air. É um negócio mais ou menos assim”
I’m finally posting this Mel! aren’t ya proud!?! haha These are in no particular order.
1.) John Wick (2014) This movie just reignited my love for Keanu Reeves. He stars as a retired legendary assassin who made a normal life for himself. After the death of his wife, he gets attacked by a mobster’s son who kills his puppy (the last gift from his deceased wife). That brings John back into the game, hellbent on revenge. I just love this movie from start to finish. It’s a basic revenge story but with a lot of raw emotion behind it. You root for John in his quest to get back at those who wronged him. The stunt choreography or ‘Gun-Fu’ is absolutely fantastic. Kudos to Keanu for working his ass off in this. And lastly, you can never go wrong with Willem Dafoe in my opinion.
2.) What We Do In the Shadows (2014) I love the shit out of this movie. It’s about a group of Vampires that live altogether in a house in New Zealand and antics ensue. It’s written, directed by, and starring Jemaine Clement and Taika Waitit. It’s smart, very entertaining and not to mention completely ridiculous! I can watch this over and over and still laugh my ass off. I will watch anything Taika and Jemaine put out. Totally recommend if you’re into ridiculously smart, hilarious mockumentaries and seeing vampire lore turned on its head.
3.) The Breakfast Club (1985) A princess (Molly Ringwald), a rebel (Judd Nelson), an outcast (Ally Sheedy), a nerd (Anthony Michael Hall), and a jock (Emilio Estevez) are stuck in Saturday detention together and end up learning more about each other than they ever thought they would. Can never go wrong with a John Hughs film. Everyone who watches this can identify with at least one of the characters or find a piece of themselves in each of them. It goes to show that there’s more going on beneath the surface.
4.) The Dark Knight (2008) This is the second installment in Christopher Nolans Batman trilogy. It introduces iconic batman villain, The Joker (Heath Ledger). Heath’s performance is completely enrapturing. When he’s on the screen, you cannot tear your eyes off him. His Joker challenges everything Batman thinks he knows, not only about himself but his city as well. Joker is why I rewatch this movie whenever I can. Love watching him unleash chaos upon Gotham.
5.) O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000) This is a Cohen Brothers movie, starring George Clooney, Tim Blake Nelson, and John Turturro. The trio breakout of a depression-era Mississippi jail and embark on a crazy quest for hidden loot. This movie is not only a hoot and a half but it also has a fantastic soundtrack. It never ceases to crack me the hell up. The foolish nature of these three is downright entertaining as are the misadventures they find themselves shoved into.
6.) Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) This movie was the very first movie I saw with my friends sans parents so it was a big deal for me at the time. Following the first of many epic adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) as he helps William Turner (Orlando Bloom) rescue a kidnapped Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightly), but more so to get his beloved Pearl back from the clutches of his mutinous former first mate Hector Barbossa and his cursed crew. This is by far the best movie out of the franchise in my opinion. I've watched it way too many times to count. This movie will always be one of my favorites.
And there you have it!!! Six movies I can watch anytime, again in no particular order!
836. Molly made one more sweater for Fred, and put it on him the day of the funeral. The giant "F" was made of the colors of everyone else's sweaters, and each person stitched their own color in, a final goodbye.
