  • {{so get this when the Avengers first had their alien battle in New York (2012) Peter would have been 10 years old so I low-key think that it was Peter that did the little drawing of the Avengers that the movie opens with}} I have since rejected this theory completely upon realizing I wrote this post at 3am and how the fuck could he have it if Peter drew it???? Cmon me
  • Tony is trying SO HARD to be a better dad than Howard was

  • “If you’re nothing without this suit, then you shouldn’t have it.” this is so important
  • ^ honestly i could go into so much detail about that just lemme know if you want me to ill make a whole ‘nother post about that shit
  • that hall pass was ridiculously huge
  • GOD the most jarring shift from Aunt May teaching Peter how to dance and tie and tie and there’s happy background music and he’s so excited then BAM fuckin Michael Keaton opens that door and ho-ly shit
  • he is so fucking scared during that whole scene in the house and in the car
  • he’s FIFTEEN years old and he’s got absolutely no idea what this guy will do if he finds out who Peter is. this is basically his frst encounter with a real villian and he scared shitless

Haunting Me (Chap. 2)

A/N: eeeeek! chapter 2 is here and it gets wild as heck guys! This chapter was so freakin’ fun to write, I kind of remixed the whole winter soldier movie plot to fit this in just right and I hope you guys like it! ENJOY! - Delilah ❤️


Pairing: Bucky Barnes x POC Reader

Haunting Me: Y/N is a normal young adult living in New York, but little does she know that she’s a reincarnation of the long lost Bucky Barnes’ fiance from the 1940′s. What happens when she runs into Steve in 2012? Most importantly, what happens when she runs into The Winter Soldier?

Warnings: Violence. Angst. Some people get shot. Kidnapping. Feels. 


You sat in the backseat of Natasha’s Porsche, listening as Steve explained the plan to you.

It wasn’t very thorough as you imagined it would be, but it was way better than Sam’s plan, which was to get Tony Stark involved. Apparently, this was a super top secret mission, one the millionaire had no business knowing about. You rolled your eyes as Steve explained to you that you would leave the minute the fighting started.

“I don’t see why,” Natasha chimed in, smirking over at Steve. “She’s a big girl.”

“Last I checked everyone in this car had military training except for Y/N.” He pressed, buckling the buckle on his helmet.

You scoffed; you were more than capable of handling your own, but as much as you hated to admit, this Winter Soldier had the same serum as Steve. Which meant he could probably break you in half with minimal to no effort. You liked being able to walk, thank you very much.

You gazed out of the window next to you, watching the scenery go by with each turn. Steve was doing better, which put you at ease for now. You still had no idea what would happen once the four of you arrived at the base. You were beyond concerned now. 

You looked back over to Steve, who was preoccupied by the shield in his hands, fiddling with it anxiously. When you turned back around, you were met with a pair of black goggles and a heavily masked face. 

Before you could scream, the man brought his fist forward and busted through the window. 

Natasha swerved erratically, trying to avoid the many cars in front of her as the man began punching holes through the roof of the car. You screamed when you felt a metal hand grab ahold of your shirt and tug forcefully, ripping the material. 

“Y/N!” Steve exclaimed, his eyes wide with fear. 

Natasha slammed on the breaks, causing the man to fly off the hood and tumble onto the concrete. 

“Everybody out!” she screamed, gathering her pistols. You exited the car, holding the small pistol in your hand. You’ve never shot a gun before, and you were mentally kicking yourself for never asking Steve to teach you. Sam expanded his wings and began soaring into the air towards the masked man. 

You watched as Natasha and Steve sprinted towards the man, dodging the spray of bullets gracefully. You, on the other hand, ducked behind a car and aimed your pistol. 

“It’s not that hard, right?” you whispered to yourself, your legs trembling as you closed one of your eyes and aligned the barrel of the gun with the man’s head. “It’s just like Call of Duty!” you laughed nervously. 

One of the hydra agents pulled out a missile launcher and aimed it right at the car. Steve immediately ran towards you, holding his shield in his front of him. The missile hit the shield directly, sending him flying over the edge of the bride. Once you saw Natasha get hit violently by the man’s metal arm, sending her flying into the side of a car, you closed your eyes. 

And you fired. 

When you opened them again, the masked man was on the ground. You perked up from behind the car, your eyes wide with shock and your mouth turned upward into a triumphant grin. You felt your heart beating wildly in your chest as you stared at the man from afar. Your smile faded as soon as you saw the man moving. 

He sat up, rolling onto his hands and knees, before standing up completely. From where you stood, you could see the bullet lodged in the lense of his goggles that were shielding his eyes. 

Uh oh. 

You backed away slowly as he glared at you. His eyes focused on yours, taking in your features. His head slowly cocked to the side as he stared you down. You stood frozen in the middle of the street, completely unsure what to do. 

“Cолдат!” Soldier!

The hydra agent behind him shouted at him angrily in Russian, aiming his own gun at you as well. You felt your heart skipping beats in your chest as you watched the man approach the soldier. 

Fucking shit!” you cursed, taking a step back. 

Instantly, the man’s eyes widened at the sound of your voice. His eyes became frantic, his breaths came out in short, rapid huffs. He shook his head, as if to rid himself of some evil-like thoughts. The gun in his hand dropped to the ground as he clutched his head. 

“Солдат, закончи свою миссию!” Soldier, finish your mission!

You watched in horror as the masked man unsheathed a black blade and in one move, slit the man’s throat. He turned back around, staring at you with his dead eyes.

And began walking towards you. 


The bullets barely missed your head as you sprinted down the sidewalk.  

You scurried around the many panicked people as they ran beside you. The bullets hit multiple people around you, but thankfully, they managed to miss you every single time. You made a sharp turn down a dark alley, hoping he’d get distracted for a moment.

As you ran, you could hear the faint footsteps growing closer and closer. You huffed, feeling your sides begin to ache from the sprinting, but you refused to slow down. 

You were almost to the end of the alley, when you felt a pair of hands wrap around your waist and haul you back into the alley. You began screaming, kicking everywhere you could with all your might. He managed to get you far enough away from the street before spinning you around and planting a hard slap onto your face. 

You cried out, feeling your cheek burn from the harsh contact. Blinking through the tears, you noticed the man was staring at you oddly once again. You watched as his head cocked to the side, his gaze set on the tears running down your face. 

Realizing he was distracted, you swung your fist into his face as hard as you could.

Big mistake. 

His head jerked back violently and you watched as the black mask flew from his face and landed onto the concrete with a small plop.

He turned around and you were hit with the strongest sensation of déjà vu. 

You swore up and down on everything you own, that you’ve seen this man before. You didn’t know how or when or where, but you’ve seen him. 

He was gorgeous. Really gorgeous. You probably would’ve developed a small crush on him if he weren’t a raging psychopath and trying to murder you and your friends. 

Who the hell are you?” he spat, his eyes wild with fear. They burned into your fearful ones as you stared back, your mouth hanging open. With a deep breath, you brought your leg up to his ribs and kicked with all your might.  

He grunted, jolting back from the force of your kick. But to your dismay, you didn’t do any kind of damage. His grip on your wrist tightened painfully, you cried out as you felt your wrist seering with pain. 

His eyes dilated, his brows furrowed as he scowled. In one move, he launched his fist forward, hitting you directly in the face. 

Then everything went black. 


When you woke, the only thing you could hear was silence and the soft sounds of what sounded like a metal clinking together. 

You opened your eyes, wincing at the brightness of the light above you. Especially the ache in your eye. You blinked, trying to fully comprehend what had just happened, most importantly, where the hell you were. 

“Who are you?” a deep voice pulled you from your thoughts.

It came out more of a demand. His voice was completely monotone, but still deep with authority. There he was, The Winter Soldier. The man who punched your lights out a while ago. Steve’s best friend, only, he didn’t look friendly at all. 

He looked terrifying.You peered around the room, taking in your surroundings. Somehow, he managed to take you to a shady little motel. From what you could peek from under the blinds as you lie on the bed, you were far from New York. The familiar sounds of traffic and civilians passing by was completely gone, leaving you in eerie silence instead.

“Are you fucking deaf?” he spat, his face twisting into a scowl. You shook your head, feeling the tears pooling in your eyes. You were trembling as well.

“N-No,” you answered timidly.

“Then answer my damn question. Who are you?”

“I’m Y/N,” you replied, feeling the tears running down your face. “Y/N Y/L/N.”

He stared off into the distance, as if he were processing the information in his head. Was he really a human computer like Sam said? You were terrified as it was, but being around a terminator was even more horrific. You waited for him to ask another question, but it never came. Instead, he leaned back into his chair, placing the pistol back onto the table.

“Are you going to kill me?” you heard yourself ask. Immediately, you shut your mouth. Why would you give him the idea? From what you knew, he was crazy, probably from all the brainwashing.

His blue eyes flickered back over to you, and you swore by everything, you saw them soften momentarily before they were back at to their original coldness from before.

“Are you going to hurt me?” you asked, this time with more volume in your voice. Immediately, he stood from the chair and you jumped, backing away as far as you were allowed. He slowly made his way over to you, his dark gaze burning into your teary eyes in a predatory manner. You flinched as he sat beside your legs.

“The man on the bridge,” he spoke, his voice still in the same nonchalant tone. “Who was he?”

“His name is Steve,” you answered, watching his expression change. “Steve Rogers, he was your best friend since childhood.”

He didn’t respond, instead, he ran his hands over his face. You watched as he ran his fingers through his long, dark hair. Despite being insane, he was extremely handsome, you’d give him that. His jawline looked like it could cut glass, and those eyes. They were twice as blue as Steve’s, twice as beautiful, too.

You pulled yourself out of your thoughts, mentally scolding yourself. This man was probably going to kill you, maybe after he did god knows what with you before, yet here you were ogling over him like some A list celebrity.

He turned towards you, his face set in a frown.

“I knew him,” he admitted, his eyes full of a mixture of confusion and hurt. “I knew him a long time ago.” You nodded, your heart thumping wildly in your chest. Why were you acting this way?

“But you…” He whispered, staring into your eyes fiercely. 

“I knew you, too.”

23 of My Favorite Korean Movie Recommendations

This is Esther, also known as areumdw, at your service!! Although it took quite a while, my movie recommendation list is here~ I TRIED to pick movies that are less well known, and I also TRIED to mix up the genres and release years a bit. I know I’m lacking in some areas, but please take a look and choose a movie to indulge in! I promise they are all worth watching! If you have any questions feel free to message me, and I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT if you could send me a message after watching a movie I’ve recommended. Well then, have fun~~

1. 과속 스캔들 (Speedy Scandal) 2009 : Comedy, Family

This movie is one of my favorite movies, as it is my go to comedy! The storyline of a top star having a hidden child keeps you on the edge with thrill, yet the love within the family warms your heart like no other~ (the interactions between Cha Tae Hyun and Wang Suk Hyun are just hilarious)

2. 광해: 왕이된 남자 (Masquerade) 2012 : Historical, Drama

I remember when this movie was on it’s way out, I just couldn’t wait. The storyline isn’t something new (a commoner taking the place of/impersonating a person of the higher social level), but the Lee Byung Hun’s flawless acting of two different personalities just won me over. It was really hard to believe that the two different characters were played by the same man.

3. 변호인 (The Attorney) 2013 : Drama, Law

Okay, I’ll be honest, I had no interest in this movie, and only wanted to watch it, because Siwan was in it, but guess what? I freaking loved it. He actually isn’t the main character, but all of the actors’ acting in this movie was on point (as were the tears). It really just takes your breath away and leaves a hole in your heart. **This movie may make you sad and angry

4. 국가대표 (Take Off) 2009 : Sports, Drama

Ah yes…this movie… This was one of the first movies I watched in a Korean theater, and I walked out with a warmed heart. The story follows a man and his national ski-jump team on self improvement, trial and error, and success, but trust me — this movie is quite heart warming (I still get the flutters in my heart when I listen to the OST). The actors were very on point here. 

5. 써니 (Sunny) 2011 : Comedy, Drama

I first watched this, because my aunt was raving about it, but soon, it was me who was raving. The storyline was originally meant to target people in their middle ages, but the actors and comical storyline soon filled the hearts of many generations~

6. 포화속으로 (71: Into the Fire) 2010 : War, Action

Yes, TOP is like one of the main characters, but that is not why this movie is on this list (mostly). Remember when everyone was crying over “Taegukgi”? Well I was crying over this one. If “Taegukgi” was about brotherly love, this was more about friendship and youth. **This movie may make you sad

7. 월컴 투 동막골 (Welcome To Dongmakgol) 2005 : Drama, Comedy

The story centers around soldiers from both South and North Korea living amongst common villagers during a war, yet the comical relief is added with one of the villagers being an insane girl (Yes, Haru’s mom!). I watched this movie when I was pretty young, but I still remember it being lots of fun~ **This movie may make you sad

8. 관상 (The Face Reader) 2013 : Historical, Drama

Did I say Lee Jong Suk? Well yes, he’s a character in this movie, but what you should really be interested in is Son Kang Ho (also the main character in “The Attorney”). All the actors in this movie are a class A, and they do a wonderful job of portraying a story of what happens when you try to mess with destiny. (Did I mention that the antagonist here is freaking scary?…Maybe it was just me..) **This movie may make you sad

9. 늑대소년 (A Werewolf Boy) 2012 : Drama, Romance, Fantasy

Yes, the typical story of a werewolf falling in love with a human girl, but even if you’re sick of it, please help yourself one last time, and watch thisNot only are the visuals like a fairy tale with Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Young (also in “Speedy Scandal”), but the storyline is also heartwarming and at the same time heartbreaking. **This movie may make you sad

10. 도가니 (Silenced/ The Crucible) 2011 : Drama

Now this is one heck of a serious movie revolving around tragic truths. I originally watched the movie because of my love for Gong Yoo, but came out as a person wanting to be fully aware and educated about the injustices in the world. The movie is about trying to save hearing imparied children from being physically and sexually abused, so please refrain if you’re uncomfortable with such graphics. **This movie may make you sad and very very angry

11. 오직 그대만 (Only You/ Always) 2010 : Romance, Drama

Once again, what got me interested in this movie were the actors, and yes, I wasn’t disappointed. The melodrama revolves around an ex-boxer and a girl who starts to lose her sight, highlighting the struggle to keep the love and relation ongoing and unfading. It’s just simply a very beautiful, lovely watch~ (seeing rough So Ji Sub act all soft for Han Hyo Joo was just…really hot)

12. 앤티크 (Antique) 2008 : Drama, Comedy, Thriller, Romance

Yes, this one’s a little hard to label under a category, but never the less, it is still a good film. It’s about a man who was traumatized as a child, and as a result, opens up a bakery in order to cope (his recollections bring up the thrill part in the movie). It was based off a Japanese manga, and it really isn’t hard to tell. From the breathtaking pastries, to the scary thrill, to the awkward yet funny comedy, to the gay romance, this movie has it all (did I mention the cuties?)

13. 집으로 가는 길 (Way Back Home) 2013 : Drama

I first watched this movie, because my parents suggested I should. The plot seemed a bit too much on the boring scale to me, but I was wrong. It was my first time seeing Jeon Do Yeon acting, and she did a wonderful job of portraying the heartbreaking story of a woman trapped in a foreign country without a way home. Being an immigrant, I could highly relate to this frustrating plot, and it made me realize how important having your family by your side is. **This movie may frustrate you

14. 비상 (Flight/Fly High/Emergency) 2009 : Romance, Action, Drama

Okay, either you’ll love this, or you’ll hate it. In my opinion, it’s a really nice romance with the right amount of action and tragedy. Being a person that loves all things sad, I loved the storyline of an innocent guy falling in love with a girl at first sight, and tainting himself as he tries to help the girl recover from an accident. If your favorite character from “Boys Over Flowers” was So Yi Jung, you will most likely fall for this movie (like I did). **This movie may make you sad

15. 7번방의 선물 (Miracle In Cell No. 7) 2013 : Family, Comedy, Drama

The plot of this movie revolves around a quite serious issue relating to the false conviction of a mentally impaired man, but it is done with the perfect amount of comical relief, that you have to remind yourself that it isn’t a comedy movie. The flashbacks are done so seamlessly that they blend in perfectly, and I don’t even have to go into how amazing all the acting was. Each character has such a big impression that my family and friends were imitating them for weeks after the movie. **This movie will make you very very sad (This is the famous movie EXO was crying to during Showtime)

16. 클래식 (The Classic) 2003 : Romance, Drama

Ah yes, this is quite the classic of Korean romance movies. The storyline is of a girl who one day coincidently opens up a box of her mother’s love letters, and discovers the story of her first love. The setting constantly switches from present to past, but what’s really cool is that both the mother and daughter are played by the same actress. The twist at the end is just immense, so go ahead and watch the so-called Korea’s version of “The Notebook”!

17. 명량 (The Admiral: Roaring Currents) 2014 : Historical, Drama, Action

Walking out from this movie, I felt like I needed to be very proud of being Korean. The levels of my patriotism skyrocketed, and the same happened to all those who had also watched. Having been oppressed by the Japanese back in the days, Korea highly respects General Lee Soon Shin, who played a major role in battles against the Japanese. This movie perfectly outlined not only his wise tactic and strategies, but also his great qualities as a leader. The tension is great in this movie, as is the visuals and amazing cast!

18. 크로싱 (Crossing) 2008 : Drama

This story is the story of a father and son, whose paths keep messing up. A North Korean father leaves to find money for his family, but while he’s gone, his wife dies, leaving his son to set foot on his way to find him. Although I watched this movie quite a while back, I still remember the heartbreaking moments that were reflected in the film. Although it’s probably not nearly as much, this films shows a small bit of the hardships of North Koreans. **This movie may make you sad

19. 말아톤 (Marathon) 2005 : Drama, Family

Following the personal journey of an autistic man, and his struggle to overcome his illness, “Marathon” does a great job of touching your heart. For the main character of this movie, running is his life. The film takes you on a life journey, and takes you behind the struggles of a man, who eventually overcomes his setback, with the support of his family and his coach. Although this topic can be a bit heavy and sad, the director does a great job of adding in the comical relief, and the acting skills of the actors are sure to have you sucked in.

20. 어린신부 (My Little Bride) 2004 : Comedy, Romance

Some people have fantasies of arranged marriages, but unfortunately in this movie, it’s a nightmare. The main character (who is still in high school) is forced to marry a man in his twenties, because of a grandfather’s wish. The poor girl goes to hide the fact that she has a husband, and even tries to date a fellow senior at school, but slowly she begins to realize that she actually does love her husband.

21. 아저씨 (The Man From Nowhere) 2010 : Action, Thriller

I’m sure many of you know this famous movie, but I just wanted to include it incase some of you don’t. I personally love it when men go through a bunch of obstacles and hardships to protect/save women, and although in this case it was a little girl, it was still more than satisfying. Won Bin’s actions were beautifully justified in this movie, enough that almost everyone was aching for an ahjussi in their lives after the release of the film. On top of his acting, Sae Ron also did a fabulous job on her part, amazing me how well such a young girl could act. 

22. 오싹한 연애 (Spellbound) 2011 : Romance, Horror, Comedy

If you haven’t realized already, the one genre I cannot do is horror, and this movie is as close to horror as I will ever get. The main character constantly sees ghosts during a day to day basis, which prevents her from having a normal life. She loses the joy in her life, yet goes to see a magic show regularly, hoping she will find some joy. Here, the magician putting on the show is left to wonder why this woman never smiles, and let’s his curiosity drive himself to her. This movie does an amazing job of combining the three genres of romance, horror, and comedy, perfecting the thrill with the jump scares, and the laughs with the comical reliefs.

23. 집으로 (The Way Home) 2002 : Drama, Family

Do you guys know of the really hot actor named Yoo Seung Ho? Well this was when he was a little boy of the age nine. Despite being so young, Yoo Seung Ho kills the acting of the spoiled city boy stuck in a country side with his mute grandmother (It’s almost as if it isn’t acting…). Although the grandmother does not say a word throughout the movie, her heart just speaks to yours through her actions, and as it melted her grandson’s heart, it will also find its way to melt yours. This story is so heartwarming, and it will help you to reflect on how you’ve been to your family, and see to it that you are grateful for the ones around you!

Robert Pattinson reinvents himself in Good Time

Vanity Fair interview by Nicole Sperling

Brooding and aloof, two adjectives often associated with actor Robert Pattinson, are two that do little to currently describe the 31-year old former heartthrob. Rather the face of the Dior Homme fragrance, with the sharp-edged jawline and the intense glare, is an easy laugh and a genuinely good time. It could be because he’s getting the best reviews of his career for his role as a petty thief sporting a hearty batch of grandiose delusions in Josh and Benny Safdie’s aptly titled grind-house actioner Good Time. It could be because the paparazzi have finally left him alone and he’s starring in the films he’s long wanted to do. Or it could be that his life is, quite simply, great. Apparently, even the spirits agree.

A few years ago, Pattinson received a psychic reading from a waitress/medium at a London restaurant who told him that his soul had lived many previous lives and the one he’s currently in was something of a reward for all his past lives’ hardships. “She was like, ‘This life is your soul just having a ride, having fun, just a roller coaster,” said Pattinson during a recent interview at his favorite Los Angeles restaurant that he asked me to keep secret.

“That’s generally how I feel,” he added. “It’s been fucking incredible. I really haven’t had any bad times. I’ve had a cruise from beginning to end.”

Most of that cruising has been done on movie sets. Since he first appeared opposite Reese Witherspoon in Vanity Fair when he was 16 (his scenes were eventually cut from the film) to today, Pattinson has worked consistently, jumping from set to set, including the four years he spent brooding as Edward, the tortured vampire with the sparkly skin and a desperate passion for the forbidden human Bella in Twilight, the series that sent his star power into the stratosphere. We all know how that fairy tale ended. What’s remarkable is that it did little to quell Pattinson’s own passion for the game. Rather, it taught him the importance of having good directors and solidified his quest to seek them out at all costs.

“That’s what film is to me,” Pattinson said of his single-mindedness about filmmakers. “It shows respect for the art form and the lineage of movie-making if you go after the people who influence everyone else.”

Back in 2015, he sent a cold e-mail to the Safdie brothers based on a film still from a yet-to-be-released movie. According to Josh, it read in part: “I’ve seen this still for your film Heaven Knows What, and I feel some type of innate connection toward it. It somehow feels tied to my purpose, and I feel like now you’re tied to my purpose.”

From that note, the brothers met with Pattinson, curious about this insanely famous millennial with no social-media presence who was “being pillaged by the press,” as Josh put it. “He was like a pop martyr, in a weird way.” Josh pitched his idea for Good Time during that first meeting and explained to the actor the brothers’ renegade approach to filmmaking: No trailers for talent. Few rules. We will write this script and get it made in the next eight months. Pattinson was in and thus was born his character, Connie Nikas, a Bronx-born criminal with dreams of springing his special-needs brother, Nick (played by Benny), out of an institution and fleeing to a broken-down farm in Virginia. While Josh and his writing partner Ronald Brownstein wrote the script, Pattinson prepped for the part.

According to Josh, that involved reading the 1,100-page Executioner’s Song by Norman Mailer, constructing a detailed biography of Connie, and traipsing around New York in character with brother Nick in tow. Pattinson learned how people treated those with special needs, hung out with recently released prisoners, and started writing letters, in character, to his brother. Josh asked him to live in an apartment in Harlem for the entirety of the shoot, a basement pad he described as a “Connie den.” “All he did there was eat tuna (to drop some weight), keep the shades down all the time, and sleep in the outfits Connie wore,” said Josh. “Robert never talks about any of this stuff.”

Pattinson does say that he connected to Connie intuitively, understanding the character’s illogical choices at a base level and never judging what is clearly a mentally unwell person.

“He thinks he’s magical. He thinks he has superpowers,” said Pattinson. “Actually, he’s mentally ill. And really just a bad person in almost every sense.”

Josh agrees that Pattinson’s connection to the material felt cellular. “I think the same person who thinks he can go in and remove his brother from police custody in a hospital is the same person who contacts small independent filmmakers after seeing a still in a movie,” Josh said. “I mean, that is the same person.”

Pattinson’s biggest challenge now seems to be managing the time between film roles, and toggling between homes in London and Los Angeles. The actor has shed much of his belongings in search of a simpler, more open existence. He used to travel with both a security guard and an assistant. Now he flies solo, doesn’t bring much with him as a result, and has become much more open to those around him.

“I just realized it stopped me from talking to everyone. You just end up talking to the people you came with,” Pattinson said, adding with a laugh, “I realized I didn’t need it.”

What he wants now is to maximize the nomadic lifestyle he’s perfected. The problem is he won’t sign on to just any old film anymore. He spent four years cultivating his relationship with famed French filmmaker Claire Denis for the upcoming movie High Life, where he plays a death-row prisoner forced to travel on an exploratory mission in space. He traveled to Morocco for nine days to seek out Werner Herzog on the 2015 Nicole Kidman-starrer Queen of the Desert. Next, he will star opposite Mark Rylance in Columbian filmmaker Ciro Guerra’s (Embrace of the Serpent) movie Waiting for the Barbarians.

“I think you have to have a reason to commit. I don’t just want to be filming stuff if I don’t understand the point,” Pattionson said. “It just makes me kind of sad.”

This new strategy has paid off. Pattinson admits he was surprised by the headlines out of Cannes this spring when Good Time debuted. Most included the word “reinvention” to refer to his career, a feat he thought he’d accomplished back in 2012 when he commanded the back seat of a limousine in David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis shortly after completing The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. But he’s not opposed to the characterization. “I thought I already did [the reinvention],” he said. “But that’s cool. If I can get a reinvention headline every couple of years, that’s kind of what I’m trying to do.”

youre going to see the lego ninajgo? they say its terrible. don't really know why they made a movie.

Listen, anon, while it’s true that the critics are saying that is terrible and poor and not a nice succesor from The Lego Movie and Lego Batman Movie, that’s not really going to stop me from seeing a movie about a tv show that I’ve been enjoying since 2012, especilly if it’s ofering a fresh new story and character arc.

They made the movie because the series/toy franchise has been succesful since 2011 (I think). Heck, the writers from the series even decided to write the script for the movie, and if you are going to compare it to The Lego Movie, I got news for you buddy: They co-wrote that movie.

And I know that series doesn’t have the best story or continuity that most tv shows do, but I actually enjoy it that way.

So yeah, I’m gonna see it. 

Try to stop me.

Taika Waititi on shaking up Thor and being a Hollywood outsider: 'They take this stuff so seriously'
The Hunt for the Wilderpeople director on joining the Marvel universe, hating biopics and his early script for Moana
By Elle Hunt

When asked what fans can expect from the latest instalment of Thor, director Taika Waititi somewhat unhelpfully says it will be “Taika-esque”.

Asked if he could perhaps describe it in literally any other way, he laughs. “I can’t! There’s no way!”

As far as whetting the appetites of Marvel fanatics goes, it’s a little counterproductive. Thor: Ragnarok will be watched by many more people who are familiar with the franchise than those who know Waititi’s work – but this may be the film that makes the New Zealand director a household name.

The big-budget Thor is a far cry from the Flight of the Conchords, of which Waititi wrote and directed a few episodes, and from What We Do In The Shadows, the 2014 vampire mockumentary he made with Jemaine Clement. And it’s almost the antithesis of Hunt for the Wilderpeople: the family friendly little-Kiwi-film-that-could, which was a surprise hit at box offices around the world last year.

But while the types of projects may differ wildly, his treatment of them – the bit that makes them “Taika-esque” – doesn’t. Even Waititi’s government-funded anti-drug-driving campaign, Tinnyvision – made in collaboration with Snapchat in 2014 – has the same warm, sly humour of his features.

And yet, after 41 years’ experience of being “Taika-esque” himself, he still struggles to describe it.

“If someone asked, ‘What are your films like?’, the best I can come up with is that they’re, like, a fine balance between comedy and drama. And they deal mainly with the clumsiness of humanity.”

Well, that’s definitely true of Tinnyvision.

As evidenced by his decision to set Ragnarok outside the Marvel universe – a ballsy move, given the size of the fandom and budget in question – Waititi is one to do things his own way. And it’s paying off.

Robert Osborne, TCM Host and Film Historian, Dies at 84

Carmel Dagan - Variety

Film historian Robert Osborne, the effervescent primetime host of Turner Classic Movies since the cabler’s inception in 1994, has died. He was 84.

The news was announced by Claudia Cowan on Twitter.

Osborne was an irrepressible advocate for the films of Hollywood’s golden era who wrote the Motion Picture Academy-sanctioned “50 Years of the Oscar: The Official History of the Academy Awards” in 1978 and a number of updates ending in 2008 with “80 Years of the Oscar.”

Osborne lived in New York but shot his TCM appearances at the cable network’s headquarters in Atlanta. As TCM’s primary on-air personality, Osborne occupied something of an unique position in the history of television: Where once it was common for channels to provide hosts for the movies they programmed, TCM is now the last U.S. movie network to regularly feature hosts who offer information about a film before it begins.

Before the launch of TCM, Osborne hosted films on the Movie Channel from 1986-93.

“When they called my name, I had this feeling I could hear half of America going “Oh no. Oh come on, why? Her, again” You know… but, whatever!

First I’m going to thank Don, because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech, they play ‘em out with the music and I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives, you’ve given me.

And, now, secondly: my other partner. 37 years ago, my first play in New York City, I met the great hair stylist and make-up artist Roy Helland, and we’ve worked together pretty continuously since the day we clapped eyes on each other. His first film with me was “Sophie’s Choice”, and all the way up to tonight, when he won for his beautiful work in “The Iron Lady”, 30 years later. Every single movie in between.

I just want to thank Roy, but also I want to thank, because I really understand I’ll never be up here again… I really want to thank all my colleagues, all my friends. I look at here and, you know, I see my life before my eyes. My old friends, my new friends. And really, this is such a great honour, but the thing that counts the most with me is the friendships, and the love, and the sheer joy we have shared making movies together. My friends, thank you! All of you, departed and here for, you know, this inexplicably wonderful career.  Thank you so much… thank you!
