Don’t Starve: The Movie (Trailer) | Gritty Reboots

 Transported into a mysterious wilderness, five strangers and a scheming magician must survive a dark nightmarish world of magic or starve trying.  

i’ve been thinking recently about how a lot of current media uses black music to describe white people

like nina simone’s “feelin good” is so fucking iconic but how sick am i of hearing that brass line play while someone opens the door to a ferrari and a bare white leg in a high-heeled shoe steps onto the pavement, you know? that song is so sexy and emphatic and it’s BLACK it’s SUCH A BLACK SONG, it is a sexy black emphatic hot weather song, you know

idk i saw a preview for the new transporter movie the other day and it starts with all these shots of like expensive watches and fast cars and designer clothes and like sexy shiny untouchable what-have-you and it’s all to a soundtrack of rap music and it turns out it’s about this british white guy??? it’s so fucking incongruous??? again it’s music that describes BLACK wealth, BLACK crowds, black sexiness, black car drivers, black voices and faces and bodies, that is what makes you sit up and take interest, and then it’s actually a bait-and-switch to be about a white guy

just another example of all of us valuing black culture but not black people, you know? we’re evoking everything that is compelling about blackness without actually portraying blackness at all

Nina Dobrev at SXSW, March 14

Nina: “There’s no unicorn emoji. That’s wrong. But I like to use the underused emojis because I feel bad for them”.

Nina: “I ate two a day every day. Literally”. (On hot dogs being the go-to snack on The Final Girls set).

Nina: (On haters) “Don’t read it, don’t look at it, don’t worry about what others think. People will always disagree with you”.

Nina: “I have a no-social-media-after-two-drinks rule”.

Nina said she’s great at utilizing social media, and she also loves the shrimp emoji.

Nina: (When asked what movie she’d transport into) “Interview with The Vampire or The Notebook”

Nina said that The Final Girls is a movie that supports women instead of showing them “running around in their bras”.
