movies seen in 2012

anonymous asked:

Who is Montparnasse? I guess give a quick bio? I've only seen the 2012 movie so I don't know much about him

OH MY GOODNESS OKAY!

In the Brick, Montparnasse is a member of Patron-Minette, a criminal gang which operates in Paris. He was a street urchin not unlike Gavroche, before a girl told him he was really handsome and since that day, Montparnasse resorted to crime in order to get himself pretty clothes (I swear I’m not making this up). Since he’s piss-poor and lazy as fuck, crime seemed like the best gig in order to get what he wants.

Okay, so random Montparnasse traits:

  • He’s vain. As fuck.
  • Lazy
  • Loyal
  • Fucking ExtraTM . Like, the guys goes everywhere with a red rose because?? He thinks he’s cool??
  • He’s a fucking dork oh my god he thinks he’s so cool but the guy got his ass kicked by a sixty yo dude like son, check yoself because u rek yourself
  • Edgelord
  • He likes Gavroche a lot.
  • He’s around 18/20 in the Brick
  • His character is written as very ambiguous. Very grey, if you will. Definitely not GOOD but definitely not a villain either. Hence the quote: “ He was kind, effeminate, graceful, robust, sluggish, ferocious” See the antithesis? (The original French text describes Montparnasse as “gentil” aka “kind” or “nice” while the English text translated it as “genteel” which doesn’t convey the same connotations and I’m HELLA SALTY ABOUT IT.)
  • Part of me is convinced that Montparnasse was written as a comic relief

Random Montparnasse facts:

  • Babet, one of his fellow associates, calls him “pretty boy” once
  • Has a swordcane
  • Gets robbed by Gavroche once
  • Has a sort of brotherly relationship with Gavroche, with Gav’ teasing him to no end
  • Refuses to speak argot (slang) because he wants to appear PROPER and DIGNIFIED (see the Edgelord entry)
  • Robber and assassin by night, dandy by day
  • Javert calls him a “Devilish Dandy” :’)

Anyway, I love my trash son

Thank you so much for filling my JARVIS prompt, Hun. So beautiful! I watched the first Avengers movie in 2012 only having maybe seen IM. Very low expectations. Came out in love with these characters and since that day I've maintained that JARVIS is my favorite (and the best) Avenger. IM3 was the best thing ever for showcasing Tony and J's relationship and it was beautiful. (1/2)

Aw honey you are very welcome :) I’m sorry it took me a bit to get to it!!!

The elusive “Wishing” fabric 

Originally said to be made exclusively for the 1986 musical “Phantom of the Opera”. Woven in India and hand dyed/printed in England, this silk fabric comes from a small husband-and-wife shop outside London. They collect antique fabrics and trims as well as reproducing elaborate materials, and they’re a favourite among film and stage designers. No wonder this specific stripy/floral rococo fabric has appeared in many movies and TV series, as well as on stage.

anonymous asked:

How does wonder woman compare to other dceu movies? Will you be seeing justice league next year?

This is the first DC movie I’ve seen since 2012 on account of them all apparently being awful, so I don’t know. And it depends on how it’s received. It looks alright, but they’ve had a very bad record recently.

Here's the thing, since people are still arguing about it.

I’ve been a fan of the Creatures and youtubers they know for about little 2 and a half years, which is not as long as some but long enough. I’ve seen the first Creature house, second Creature house and the office. I’ve seen the loss of two Creatures and the addition of three. I’ve seen the introduction of the first wave and second wave of shirts. I’ve seen three of them achieve 1 million subs and one of them hit 2 million. I’ve seen the first movie trip, the revival of Creature Talk in 2012 and I seen when Bunny Bust 1 and 2 were uploaded. I’ve seen Speaker Ze and Fridge Ze. I’ve seen Sp00n’s face reveal, and every single panel. I’ve even seen Seamus start dating Ash, and Jordan get married.

There’s a lot of things that have changed about this group over the past 2-3 years. A lot. They’ve grown and expanded and fallen back and picked themselves up. Nothing is the same as it was in 2011 or 2012 or even 2013 at this point. And next year, things won’t be the same either. If you’re expecting there to be the same members, and expecting the same sort of content to be published for the rest of the company’s life, you might want to take a step back and re-evaluate. Nothing is ever going to stay the same. Not with the Creatures, not with you. You don’t have to like all the changes, but if you can’t handle the fact that thee guys will keep changing and growing and making new decisions how are you ever going to handle you’re own life? If you keep watching, let them do as they please and support them when they need it. 

Everything they do is for us. For you. Don’t you think you ought to return the favor every once in a while?

Movies seen in 2012 - #185: Såsom i en Spegel (Through A Glass Darkly) (1961) Rating: B+

This is the first Ingmar Bergman film I’ve seen. It’s perfectly directed and beautifully shot; I have the want to watch more Bergman films. Through A Glass Darkly is a very heavy and deep film that leaves you think at the end. The question of the film is the absence of god and man’s tragic isolation. Every character in Through A Glass Darkly is wanting answers from the questions they have. It’s like reality; people having questions about death and god. Excellent script. The film has great performances by everyone. They all portray their extremely deep characters well and flawlessly. I love the chemistry between Harriet Andersson and Lars Passgard, very good. 

Movies seen in 2012 - #182: 28 Days Later (2002) Rating: C+

Plot summary: Four weeks after a mysterious, incurable virus spreads throughout the UK, a handful of survivors try to find sanctuary.

28 Days Later is directed by Danny Boyle. Boyle decided to shoot this film on video, thus giving it a more realistic, documentary feel. There’s a both a positive and negative side for Boyle choosing to shoot the film this way. The positive is that it lets the audience get more attached to the character because it feels more really. Also, you save a lot of money shooting this way and staying within budget. The negative is that some may feel a bit distracted by this method of shooting. Boyle also shoots a lot through objects in 28 Days Later. I’m not sure what he was trying to go for or convey, but it’s interesting to watch.

28 Days Later is written by Alex Garland. I’m not sure why a lot of people think this is such a great film because to me it’s just another zombie film, but a good horror film. The character development is excellent. You really get attached to the main characters because they’re so fleshed out and thanks to Boyle’s realistic directing. The character really have a sense of reality apart from their role with the plot. Their personalities really have a huge affect on their decisions and you actually see this. 

28 Days Later stars: Cillian Murphy and Naomie Harris as the main characters. Murphy gives one of his best performances of his career so far. It’s really emotional and powerful. Thanks to his performance he fleshes his character out making it really personal. Harris also gives a great performance that fleshes her character. Harris’s chemistry with Murphy is believable and adds to the film. There are other actors who play minor characters and do a good job. 

28 Days Later is an alright zombie film, but a good horror film thanks to Boyle’s directing, fleshed out characters and strong lead performances. 

Movies seen in 2012 - #183: Argo (2012) Rating: B+

Plot summary: As the Iranian revolution reaches a boiling point, a CIA ‘exfiltration’ specialist concocts a risky plan to free six Americans who have found shelter at the home of the Canadian ambassador. (IMDb)

Argo is directed by Ben Affleck. I am really really surprised with how much I like this film. The trailers I saw for Argo were misleading and left me not wanting to see this film. I’m glad I did. Ben Affleck continues to prove the world with how incredible he is as a director. Affleck keeps his directing consistent & so perfectly shot and edited. I really love the direction of this film. There are intercuts with faux newsreel footage, to ensure credibility and the attention detail of the time era and what went on amazes. The pace of the film keeps moving all the way to the very end and keeping you at the edge of your seat, at least it did for me. 

Along with the strong directing there’s a strong script written by Chris Terrio. Argo is based on a true life-story. Extremely well written script that is engaging until the very end. Argo is a political suspense thriller with comedic relief. What I like about the script is that it’s smart and serious all the way to the end, but Terrio places the humor perfectly throughout the film. I was surprise by how many times you can laugh during Argo.

Argo is jam-packed with a solid cast. I don’t feel like talking about each actors performance because every single actor in this film is terrific. Ben Affleck and Bryan Cranston shine the most. 

Argo is one of biggest surprises for me in 2012. I suggest everyone to pay the admissions price to see it in theatres. I won’t be surprise if Argo is nominated for an Oscar. I’m not in love with Argo, but it’s a damn good and well made film.
