movies i can always watch

Concept: Bossuet, Joly and Grantaire having a monthly bad movie night in the attempt to find the worst movie ever made

@zsaszmatazz tagged me to do the “six movies I can watch any time” meme (LIKE 10 YEARS AGO I’M SORRY) so here goes!

1. Road to El Dorado

Don’t tell me you can’t also watch this whenever. It’s lolzy, it’s feelsy, and it’s the source of one of my three OT3s. If Miguel/Tulio wasn’t allowed to be canon, I’m making Miguel/Chel/Tulio my headcanon dammit. Fight me.

The story is a fantastic adventure every time. The music is amazing, the animation is GORGEOUS. The jokes are funny no matter how many times I hear them. “Stars.” “Holy ship.” “Apparently ‘El Dorado’ is native for GREAT… BIG… ROCK.” 

And don’t get me started on the armadillo. Is that thing a spirit guide? A god? Probably. I’m for it.

2. Chicken Run

I consider this one a guilty pleasure. Again, always a funny, fun adventure. Just serious enough to balance out the lolz. And Ginger is one hell of a snarky character. I love that she’s simultaneously mom friend and rebel friend.

Also, it’s that claymation Wallace and Gromit animation, which is just… nifty! I always find myself watching certain characters move, checking out different textures, especially with Babs and her knitting. Just… excellent.

Also, also this:

3. Stardust

What can I say about this movie? Well…

I was based on a book written by my favorite author, Neil Gaiman, is a fantastic adventure that addresses the line between magic and non-magic worlds and includes such fun things as evil witches, falling in love, warring princes, falling stars, unicorns, ghosts, and sky pirates in drag (which Neil said he’s pretty sure he didn’t write, but it’s such a good scene you guys).

I am always happy by the end of it. The growing-up story is so good. And Tristan kind of bumbles through it like I totally believe I would were I thrown into a story like that. It’s just… such a satisfyingly complete and fun story, and I love it every single time.

4. Megamind

Shut the hell your mouth this is the best villain-to-hero story I know. I am always so proud of Megamind. Like, real talk, how often does our favorite adorable villain get the girl? How often do we get to see the bumbling bad guy actually get a cool-ass happy ending? And the emotional journey he goes on gets just serious enough without killing the funny vibe the whole movie carries.

The writing is tropey, but in a way that totally plays on those tropes while making fun of them. Trope-ception is my favorite trope. And I love, love, LOVE the design choices. This movie is so colorful, and the proportions are so over the top. It’s just a visual salad. 

And, as always, the jokes are good no matter what. I don’t think I’ll ever get over, “And I love you, random citizen!” This movie is such a fun time, please go watch it.

5. Strange Magic

Have you heard of this movie? Well, now you have. Please go watch it. 

Much like Megamind, Strange Magic got pushed to the back burner by more popular movies coming out at the same time. And that’s just a shame, because it’s just so good.

It’s a jukebox musical with reenactments of all sorts of songs, all of which are brilliant (half the time because Evan Rachel Wood My Queen is singing them, but also Alan Cumming, and sometimes they sing together and I die). The story is predictable, but the characters are what make it for me. They’re fun enough that even though I saw the end coming a mile away, it was nothing but enjoyable watching them get there.

This fandom is also dear to my heart. It’s full of some of the sweetest people with some of the most interesting fan fiction that I’ve ever read. When I think good writing, I think @abutterflyobsession who has made me cry on more than one occasion, and @jaegereska whose lore and OCs add so much to the world beyond the movie. 

Major draws: good music, lovely animation, self-confidence story, princess with a sword, SWEET SWEET VENGEANCE, and did I mention singing by Evan Rachel Wood, Alan Cumming, and Kristin Chenoweth? Bruh.

6. Labyrinth

My favorite movie for now and always. Set it at the bottom for full effect. Get ready.

First off, music by David Bowie that is fuckin’ catchy as heck. If you don’t want to at least tap your foot along to ‘Dance Magic Dance’ you’re lying. ‘As the World Falls Down’ was the first song I remember wanting to know the lyrics to. 

Side note: If you didn’t think the Fireys were creepy as fuck, you’re also lying.

There has never been so much glitter in one place ever. The visual gags are always funny. Like, there are Bowie faces I still can’t find to this day hidden in the scenery??? The muppets are all adorable because Brian Froud is amazing, and I want a pet goblin. Everything is just so much fun to look at. Don’t even get me started on the ridiculous fantasy fulfillment that is the ballroom scene. I just. 

The jokes are always funny because they run on a dry sense of humor like mine. “Well, come on feet.” One I missed for years. “No, that’s the dead end, behind you!” Ha, hubris. “It’s a piece of cake!” Shut up, Sarah…

But you also can’t not love the characters? Like, come on, who doesn’t wanna hug Ludo just a little. And Didymus, the fox knight that rides a fuckin’ tiny dog into battle?? And Hoggle who collects jewelry and pretends to be bitter as hell but cares so much??? Heck off, they’re all awesome.

Fave movie. Always.

Honorable Mention: Big Fish

Added this one because I can watch this any time, but it always makes me cry, so I usually save it for when I need a good cry. (Srsly, @may10baby can vouch, I once tried to explain the end to her and started sobbing in the car).

It’s just such a cool story. We get to see the life of the father as told through his own hyperbolic stories, which include a star-studded cast playing funny scenes in between serious family time. And the end… christ, it’s just such a satisfying ending. Such a good play on storytelling and what it can mean to people. Which, as a writer, means a lot to me.

Also, it’s the only Tim Burton movie I’ve seen that doesn’t look like… that. You know. How Burton movies look. Helena Bonham Carter plays like 3 different people, and none of them are Mrs. Lovett. That’s a feat, honestly.

I’ve said this about a few of these, but please watch this movie.

Flowering tea and blueberry-muffin tea 💜

Flowering tea: What is a movie you can always watch? 

It varies! I go on movie kicks–like, there was a solid month where I probably watched Moana eight or nine times; the first time I saw How to Train Your Dragon I literally watched it twice in a twenty-four hour period. When it comes to movies I’m always down to watch no matter what my mood, it’s probably Stardust or (DON’T JUDGE ME) The Emperor’s New Groove

Blueberry-Muffin tea: Tell me a memory, which makes you smile.

My parents have a few apple trees in their back yard. They’re way too small to climb, but they’re cute, and they bloom every year and actually bear fruit, so my parents always try to send me or my sister out to pick a bunch of apples when we’re home so that they don’t have to. 

Fall of my first year of grad school, I was sort of casually complaining to my mom that I was a little grumpy that I didn’t have any good pictures of me and my now-husband, then-fiance. At the time he was super camera-shy in that way that 21-year-old dudes are dicks about being in photos; he’d tolerate me taking selfies and the occasional picture, but mostly he made faces and tried to look silly whenever I brought out the camera. My mom nodded along, and we moved on to talking about other things.

Later that morning–it was one of those super gorgeous days that only happen in New England in September and October, when the weather is beautifully warm and lots of things are still green but all the leaves are starting to turn all the fall colors–my mom told me that Z and I should go pick apples for later, because otherwise she’d forget. So I grab a reusable shopping bag and we troop out to the back yard, and spend a good fifteen minutes wandering around the few trees and basking in the sunlight and making fun of each other and throwing things at each other (we were Very Mature People ok). And we’ve spent the last few months getting used to grad school and being By Ourselves in a Strange State and life’s been super stressful, so it’s just great to spend some time being warm and silly and ridiculous for a little while.

And about twenty minutes into this endeavor, I hear my mom say, “wait, stop moving, that’s super fucking cute.” 

And obviously we both look up, because neither of us is capable of hearing “stop moving” without responding with “uuuuh why”, and there’s my mom, sitting on the steps of the back porch in her pjs and fuzzy socks, with her camera, snapping candid shots of our little apple-picking adventure. I was shocked, because I thought she’d kind of dismissed what I said about wishing I had more pictures (not because she doesn’t listen when I talk, but just because I said it before she’d had any coffee, and who can blame her?), and she just gives me this big smile and says, “don’t mind me, I’m not even here. I already got a bunch of good ones! You can use them on your wedding website.”

It was the first time since we’d gotten engaged that she’d talked about our wedding like it was a thing she was looking forward to. 

And those are still some of my favorite pictures.

ask me my tea order :)

There are several that I can always watch but the one my niece has now finally seen (and which is age appropriate so I don’t have to scroll by on the tv if she’s around) is The Princess Bride. I can probably quote that whole movie, it’s as old as I am, and I love it.

“Are you even paying attention to the movie anymore?”  You laughed when Kol’s face buried into your neck again.  He left kisses against your collar bone, chuckling at you before resting his chin against your shoulder and staring at the TV screen.

“No.  I’d much rather pay attention to you.”  He mused, arms winding tighter around your waist to pull you deeper into his embrace.  You laughed, finally twisting your head around to give him the kiss he had been waiting for.

“I can always just watch the movie later.”  You mumbled, clicking the pause button before twisting your body to sit in Kol’s lap, facing him.  He chuckled, resting his hands against your hips before leaning up and capturing your lips in his own.

“Now this is what I’m talking about.

flowering tea, blueberry muffin tea (is that even a thing???), 24 flavours

i’ve had blueberry tea,  but think i’d rather just eat the muffin haha!

17. Flowering tea: What is a movie you can always watch? 

A movie that I can always watch is Mulan, it’s my ultimate favourite Disney movie and I’m just so in love with it.

21. Blueberry-Muffin tea: Tell me a memory, which makes you smile. 

Probably my oldest memory that always makes me smile is my Grandad teaching me chess when I was little. We used to spend hours after school playing different strategies and collecting different sets (we are in possession of a lord of the rings set which we collected and painted one piece at a time, a glass set and a standard wooden set) like the nerds we are.

What is your favorite gif at the moment? Probably this one: 

What is a song you can always hear? The Deepend remix of Catch and Release!

What is a movie you can always watch? Excellent question, I don’t spend a ton of time watching movies haha. I’ll say the Princess Bride.

Do you have stuffed animals sitting in your room? Yes! I have a Pikachu, a large teddy bear, a polar bear, and a jaguar. And a gigantic panda (who wears an old bjj gi top so I can practice stuff on her)

Can you draw/paint? Wanna show me something? Ahaha not well enough to have anything on hand to show you…
