movie picks of the week

Bokuakakuroken HCs

Okay consider movie nights with bokuakakuroken.
Each week they take turns picking:
-Bokuto likes animated films with animals in them like Disney movies and especially movies with owls in ‘em like “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole”. Kuroo and Bokuto end up singing all the songs involved in the movie and re-enact them dramatically like the losers they are. Kenma and Akaashi just laugh and cuddle in blankets.
-Kuroo picks slapstick comedy and cheesy romcoms like “50 first dates” or “22 Jump Street” and Bokuto amd Kuroo laugh at the most idiotic things possible and most of the time Kenma just dozes off in the middle on Bokuto, Kuroo or Akaashi’s lap. Akaashi is just so done and instead does his nails.
-Akaashi, surprisingly, is into really really dramatic romantic movies like “The Notebook” or “A Walk to Remember” or “Brokeback Mountain” and cries everytime while Bokuto and Kuroo start crying as well, Kenma sits there awkwardly patting all of them who have collapsed on his lap.
-Kenma likes mystery murder movies like “Sherlock Holmes” series and stuff and to nobody’s surprise, he manages to solve the cases halfway through the movie while Bokuto is just like ???? most of the time, Akaashi comes up with wayyy too many scenarios and Kuroo strays from the movies actual point and thinks about ridiculous endings.
-They all have fun though and it lets them bond.
-Oikawa sometimes invites himself and Iwa-chan over and would fight over “The X-Files” or “Godzilla” but no one really minds, everyone is happy in the end. (Of course usually a mess is made when Oikawa, Kuroo and Bokuto are in the same room, but it was worth it.)

summary: Clarke does drunk movie reviews. Bellamy has a channel on Greek mythology. Somehow one leads to the other. (a bellarke youtubers au)

It started off as a joke.

Back when she and Raven shared a dorm, bottles of tequila stashed away in their dresser drawers, they’d been looking for something to kill time with–mainly something to do while they put off coursework–and three shots into the night, they’d decided turned the camera on and started talking.

It spiralled in a lot of different directions, but when they watched it back the next morning, it was mainly about movies, whichever movie they’d seen most recently, so they cut out the bits around it, and put that chunk on YouTube. Just because, well, why the hell not.

They did it again the next week, purposefully picking out a crap movie to watch on the Tv while Raven’s laptop sat open, recording them trashing the movie, passing a bottle back and forth. The longer the night went on, the emptier the bottle got, the more ridiculous the review got.

They posted it anyway, the next morning, cutting out the bits where they sat in silence or talked so loud over each other that it was impossible to make out what they were actually saying. Clarke fell asleep halfway through editing it, but Raven sliced it down to five minutes, posting it the same day.

They didn’t really expect anything to happen from it. It was just a way to blow off steam, something to do friday nights when they were too lazy or uninterested in going out. In no way did they ever think anyone would watch the videos.

The definitely didn’t think they’d become popular.

10 Things To Try (Gameplay)

I received a request for more gameplay ideas. There are no “wrong” interpretations and you’re free to use whatever content you want.

1) Your teenage girl is still finding her identity. Have her change her style (hairdo/colour/wardrobe) every few sim-weeks.

2) Pick a day of the week that is family movie night. That night the entire family watches TV together.

3) Your partner has Simjamin Simtton syndrome! Every time you age up, he/she ages down. Beginning with both being Young Adults, when you become an Adult, your partner becomes a teen. Elder - Child. When the elder dies, the child gets to grow old, but will not fall in love ever again as he/she mourns the death of their one true love.

4) Your sim is a budding personal stylist! Through the townie bin menu, find sims who are in a desperate need of a makeover, and give it to them. But before you can do that, you need to make sure you know that sim and have some sort of relationship with them (distant friends/acquaintances will do). Once you’re finished, award your sim some money through a cheat. Show us before and after pictures, too.

5) Friday is date night. Send your favourite teenage/YA/adult/elderly couple on a romantic date, and continue doing so every Friday, visiting a different venue every time.

6) Vacation terror - you and your family are staying in Granite Falls, and you’re bored. Dress everyone in the bear costume and begin being mean to the unsuspecting visitors.

7) Your house is suddenly inhabited by scary ghosts. (They must have the Evil, Mean and Insane traits). 3-5 ghosts preferable (unless your household is large). You have no control over them, meaning you don’t “play” them and instead leave them to take care of their own needs, and only “play” your non-ghost members.

8) You’re a hermit. You hate people and electricity. You can own a bath tub/sink but not a shower, and you can’t own any electronics or appliances. You must live off of the earth, growing your own produce. Your only social needs relief is your trusty bear sidekick Blarffy (you’ll need the Childish trait to interact with it).

9) Homework is hard! From now on your child can only do his/her homework when an adult is present in the room, to “help them”. The adult has to actually be nearby and not be doing anything too distracting, like watching TV, for the duration.

10) Finders Keepers - you live in an empty shell of a house and are in the Criminal career. You can only use found objects (rocks, trophies, fish) and career rewards to furnish your place, as well as items you’ve acquired through “illegal means”. Since there is no option to “swipe” stuff in TS4, we will need to improvise. After every work day as a criminal, you have one choice of an item (that your finances can afford) you “brought home from work with you”, from any category. You cannot buy two items from the same category in a row. (e.g. if day 1 is bed, day 2 can’t be a chair since they’re both in the “comfort” section). On your days off you don’t get to “bring an item with you”, since well, you weren’t at work.

some movie night headcanons

- movie night Saturday is a BIG thing at the firehouse. 

- Kevin takes the lack of couch space as an opportunity to put all the pillows and blankets on the floor. it becomes a Saturday night tradition.

- they all take turns picking a movie each week and Patty has yet to pick something that isn’t a documentary or a musical. everyone complains that the songs will get stuck in their heads, but deep down they love it. 

- Patty knows this so she tries to pick a different style of musical every time it’s her turn. everyone is singing the show tunes until the next movie night.

- Abby alternates between comedies and 80s coming-of-age films which she shamelessly cries at a good majority of. 

- Erin trying to hide her obvious tears makes Holtz flirtatiously tease her about crying over a movie. the teasing usually doesn’t last long because Holtz is a sympathetic crier who “only teared up a little bit, I swear.” 

- Holtzmann doesn’t get that there is a limit to how many bad 70s-80s sci-fi films you can watch per lifetime and that she has greatly exceeded that limit.

- Kevin has no real pattern to his picks, but he has a soft spot for Disney. when it isn’t Disney, it’s something everyone ends up liking anyways. (except for the one time he picked a really metaphorical indie film and no one knew what was going on but him.) 

- Erin’s choices have yet to stray from Harry Potter after she got the girls to finally read all the books over a span of three weeks. 

-Patty didn’t mind rereading them for a third time. her book club dreams came true. Abby took some extra convincing. Holtz was adamant about finishing them as fast as possible. (it’s not because she liked seeing Erin’s smile when she’d go on about the characters that she held so close to her heart or anything.) 

- Abby is a night owl, so when everyone falls asleep in a big cuddled up heap she makes sure to take a picture. if that picture just so happens to make it to instagram then whoops.

Inner monologue

Feel free to ignore my random brain musings towards my future self…

To do list:

Update Writing Master List (again? How many times am I going to have to update this thing?)

Brainstorm ideas for commission.

Finish an ML drabble or chapter (seriously you have a folder filled with work waiting to be finished!! For the love of all the is good pick something and write it!!)

Do annotated bibliography search (school stuff)

Read a chapter from Frankel (reading fanfics will not help you write that book report)

Do NOT start a new fanfic- finish one of the ones you have!! (Seriously, i know what you’re thinking- dont do it!!)

Do not watch princess bride (you’ve already watched it twice this week, please pick a different movie!)

If you complete all this you may work on one of your original book/fic ideas (future me: *holds up tablet* me: No! Thats all you’ve done for weeks! Future me: but- Me: nuh uh your wrist is having problems- just put the damn tablet down for a day! Future me: *hisses* Me: did you…? Did you just hiss at me?! Future me: *scurries off with tablet* Me: oh hell no! Get back here!!!)

“Okay, so natasha said love actually, steve said world war 2 docs, tony said die hard, peter said lord of the rings, and clint ‘doesn’t give a shit’” you say, grabbing a handful of movies from the towers ‘avengers movie shelf. Only for members.’

“this narrows down nothing.” Pietro rolls his eyes. “why don’t we just watch them all?” Thor suggests, coming into the room with a huge amount of popcorn. You all nod in agreement, settling on the idea since you were so done with bickering.

“But which one first?” Peter asks. Everyone yells their movie pick. You sigh, face palming. “Seriously?” You sit up, walking out of the room, giving them a small wave as you go off to watch the movie you picked out in your room. 

Every. single. week.

Congratulations! You’re now reading...

It was your turn to pick a movie. Anything you wanted to watch was the plan. For weeks, Jaebum had been picking the movies for Friday nights, skeptical of letting you choose the next film. He’d always thought you to have poor interest in movies; either you picked something cliché, something boring, or something he just wasn’t interested in.

He was a great boyfriend, of course, but is incredibly difficult to please to the fullest. His interests were picky and specific, but he always tried toning it down for you.

This Friday night, your friend had lent you some movie that was called Blue-something. The other half of the title, you couldn’t remember. The movie title was practically all smudged off of the DVD disc. She told you it was everything but romantic and entirely worth watching. You even asked if Jaebum would enjoy it; she said he would.

“It’s my turn to pick the movie.” I threw a piece of popcorn at Dean’s face and it bounced off the bridge if his freckled nose. He narrowed his eyes at me, clearly trying not to smile. 

“Didn’t you pick last time?” Movie night was my highlight of the week, especially after one as monster-filled as this. It didn’t matter that we had just finished decapitating five vampires or that blood still stained several sections of my shirt, we always made time for this tradition. I shrugged and clicked through the channels on the tv. 

“Maybe I did, but I get to pick again.” Dean scoffed and reached over for the remote, almost knocking the bowl of popcorn from my lap. I giggled and tried to hold it away from him as far as I could. We had been on the road for three days and his scruffy facial hair scratched against my cheek while he wrestled for the item in my hands. “I wanna watch Thor!” My voice was high pitch, nearly screeching as he held me down and tried to force my fingers open. 

“No you wanna ‘watch’ Chris Hemsworth.” He wagged his eyebrows at me. He was practically lying on top of me in his effort to retrieve the remote, his heavy chest pushing against my shoulder. Any girl would have melted under the pressure of his muscles and smell of his skin, but Dean and I were like brother and sister, nothing romantic. I sometimes had to remind my heart of that when he pulled antics like this. He almost had my grip undone when I remembered his greatest weakness. My other hand shot up and wriggled on the side of his ribs, my fingers just grazing the soft fabric of his shirt. Suddenly his face grew serious, even angry. “Hey! You wouldn’t dare.” Deans spoke slowly, green eyes dark with challenge and maybe a little bit of fear. I responded with the cocky smile he had practically taught me to give. 

"What, is the world’s biggest, baddest hunter a wittle ticklish?” I pouted my lips in mocking and moved my fingers a bit more.Suddenly something in him snapped. Both of my wrists were snatched up in his before I had a chance to flinch.  

“I’m. not. ticklish.” Dean’s voice was raspy with aggravation. I could smell the beer on his breath and the gummy candies we had been sharing left his tongue a vibrant shade of magenta. I couldn’t hold back a giggle, not when he looked so intimidating and childish at once. My amusement made him scowl. He released his grip on my hands and shook his head mechanically. 

“You, on the other hand…” The mischief in his eyes warned me of incoming assault, but I had no where to run. Strong fingers danced over my sides and stomach. I tried to curl up to hide the sensitive skin there, but Dean was unrelenting. I had wounded his pride, and for that, he would make me pay. I was crying in laughter and gasping for air when he finally heeded my screams for him to stop. Through the tears in my eyes I could see him waving a remote victoriously.

I pick the movie. No Thor.” He reached into my still quivering lap and retrieved a handful of spilled popcorn. I could barely understand his words over the massive amount of food he crammed into his mouth, but he sounded pleased with himself.

“Besides, you don’t need to be checking out any other guys… just me.” 

ok but lets talk about Capheus and Kala having weekly movie nights and each week taking turns picking the films and Kala introduces him to all her favorite indian films full of singing and dancing and then slowly the rest of the cluster joins in an they all watch Lito’s films and Wolfgang brings his childhood favorites that he and Felix loved to watch and Sun and Wolfgang point out all the flaws in the fight scenes like ‘that would never happen in a real fight’ and afterwards they all just stay up having a good time and Riley brings some tunes and they all sing and dance and everything is happy and perfect and nothing bad happens to them ever again 

Movie Picks of the Week 16

Tomorrow night the Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters starring Andrew Garfield whom I’ve been a fan of for a few years now and here are a few reasons why.

Boy A (2007; directed by John Crowley) is essentially a film about a young man who did something wrong as a youth and is trying to adjust to life after being released from prison. In this film, he does a good thing and his past, as the trailer tells, come back to him in a big way.

I haven’t seen the film in a long time but I remember it being good and Andrew Garfield delivering the goods as the Boy A. The trailer gives you the gist of it and it gave me shivers just watching that again.

The last early Andrew Garfield film that left a big impression on me comes from 2009, the Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, which was directed by Terry Gilliam and starred the late great Heath Ledger. This movie is most known for being Ledger’s last film, he died during the production but because of the concept of the film,  Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law were able to play his part. Does that make sense? It will if you see the film, I’ll just say the film has a lot of magic and for me, it worked.

Garfield plays the boy in the film. He has a love-hate relationship with Ledger’s character. He looks up to Ledger’s character because Ledger is so cool and charismatic which Garfield is not. But then there’s the hate part because Garfield has a gal pal who starts to like Ledger more than he. Drama!

Christopher Plummer, Lily Cole, Verne Troyer, Tom Waits as the Devil round out the cast. The film has a lot of wonderful visuals (natch it’s Gilliam) and you get a nice little story about an old magic act trying to fit in in the modern world. It’s a little long, but I liked it. Seek it out if you can, its out on Blu-Ray, DVD, and on Crackle’s YouTube page.

As for my TCM pick of the week, I’ll continue my vagueness by recommending Possession (1981; directed by Polish filmmaker Andrzej Zulawski. They’re showing it this Friday night at 11pm PT/2am ET.

Wikipedia describes the film as a horror film but for me, it was more of a family drama gone wild kind of film. I suppose the pitch would be Kramer vs. Kramer minus the overt niceties of that film with the tone and camera movements of the Shining with equal powerful performances from both parents, Sam Neil and Isabelle Adjani.

Very interesting film that has violence, sex, and aliens. If that description and the trailer doesn’t entice you then nothing will. You can find the film on YouTube if you do not have TCM but if you do have TCM you have yourself a pretty cool double feature if you stick around that Friday night because after Possession is Roman Polanski’s Repulsion from 1965! Something you must consider if you have the time.

See you next week!

like jesus christ if you see a headline saying that Inside Out now holds the record for biggest opening weekend for a non-sequel/remake/reboot movie in history and your first thought is “fuck yeah, victory over this completely separate movie from 2013 that didn’t really pick up attention until a few weeks after it had been released!” then you’re clearly way more obsessed with Frozen than actual fans of the movie

Note: Thanks to @becksndot5 for the great beta, again!


It’s Saturday night, the boys don’t have to go to school tomorrow, and even if David would rather be alone with her on their first day together since a month, he has to follow the “Saturday movie” rule. Felix picked “Inside out” for the thousand times last week, so tonight, Oscar picked “Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.”

“You sure you don’t wanna watch ‘Inside out’ again?” David asks, desperately thinking about waiting for two and a half hours before he can get laid

When Gillian comes back from the kitchen with a huge popcorn bowl, Oscar has already set up the DVD, waiting for David to hit the play button. She steps over her sons who are lying on their stomachs on the floor, their hands cupping their faces, and curls up against David on the sofa.

“Can we skip the credits?” David asks, full of hope.

All he earns is a gentle slap on his arm, and withdraws, putting the remote away with a sad sigh.

It’s not the first time he sees this movie, he isn’t really into science fiction, and with the jetlag, and the comfortable warmth of Gillian around him, he feels sleepy and closes his eyes. A few minutes later, when he is about to drift off completely, playful whispers, and soft chuckles wake him up. The two little boys are whispering in each other ears, laughing and throwing mocking looks at him.

“What?” He asks, flicking his foot against Felix’ leg.

The little boy burst into a laugh again, “You look just like him!” He says, pointing at Chewbacca on the TV screen.

Oscar, and Gillian chuckle, as David frowns his eyebrows in disbelief.

“I saw you without your shirt once, you have as many hair as him!” Felix continues, giggling.

“That is so not true!” David answers, with the high pitched voice he uses when he feels embarrassed.

“He is right!” Gillian chuckles, lifting the collar of his shirt to expose the hair of his chest. “Look at that!” She says, pulling his hair playfully. “You have puppy eyes just like him, you get pissed off easily, and you make that sound when you co…” She stops her sentence, seeing him staring wide-eyed, and chewing his bottom lip, the way he does when she’s about to say something inappropriate. She burst into laughter, her eyes getting red and wet, at the thought that she actually was about to say that in front of her children. “Oh my god, I’m so sorry!” She whispers, hiding her face behind his arm. David tries to keep a poker face, chewing his cheeks and lips not to laugh, and focuses his yes on the screen.

“Come on, Chewie, let’s go to bed!” Gillian jokes, when the final credits appear on the screen.

“Hey! Don’t call me that!” He screams, half annoyed, half amused.

“Why not? I like Chewie!” She says, walking the steps behind the boys to put them to bed. “He is faithful, and loyal, just like you. And I’m pretty sure you know how to nail it with a crossbow too!”

“Good night, Chewie!” The two boys say in unison before crawling into their beds.

“Come here, Chewie.” She says, holding his hand to lead him into her bedroom. “I wanna hear that sound again.”

“Groawwwwr!”
