movies: up

anonymous asked:

are there les Amis that aren't in the movie?

of the “official” 9, they’re all technically in the movie, but some just have very, very, very minor roles. And (it’s been awhile since I’ve watched the actual film, so forgive me if I’m wrong) not all of them are mentioned by name in the movie, like I think it’s only Enjolras, Combeferre, Courfeyrac, and Grantaire whose names we hear? 

honestly, the penumbra immediately appealed to me because of how it described itself as intentionally twisting tropes, which is something I’m very fond of. I’ve read a lot of rewrites of fairy tales and old stories and in my opinion the best part about it is being able to shock your reader with something they already know. There’s nothing surprising about making a “hard boiled detective” but having this personality explained by actual mental health issues is an incredibly refreshing change of pace

and they’re doing it in a much different way then i could, as someone who set out to write a “beauty and the beast au” and ending up devoting a chapter to entirely unrelated characters breaking free from an entirely unrelated curse and eventually revealing that the way to break the beast’s spell wasn’t exactly love but more introspective feeling which, unfortunately, no one had thought of mentioning to the beast because they assumed he would find the instructions hidden behind the coach

Things that were incredible* about Rogue One

* “incredible” doesn’t mean it wasn’t devastating 

  • the cast, obviously — I mean, where even to begin, they were incredible, their performances were superb, the characters were so engaging
  • the relationship between Chirrut Îmwe and Baze Malbus, which was so immensely loving
  • Galen’s choices
  • Galen mentoring Bodhi
  • Bodhi diving into the rebellion because it’s never too late to do the right thing
  • the old star wars aesthetic and costume design (nostalgia AND originality)
  • every death (every life) mattered, on both sides
  • a 2016 pop culture statement about fighting fascism — about fighting fascism
  • Cassian’s been fighting since he was six — this work takes a LONG time
  • the arrival of the rebel fleet
  • fighting on the beaches calling back to D-Day (i.e. fighting nazism)
  • Cassian telling Jyn (the only white team-member) that she doesn’t get to choose when she has to care and when she has to fight (thanks to @bisexualstevenrogers for articulating this)
  • Mon Mothma’s little smile when she realizes what Cassian, Jyn, and the others have done
  • Bail Organa going back to Alderaan
  • was that Biggs Darklighter!? (don’t answer that, I’m just going to assume that it was)
  • women pilots
  • Krennick watching his own side cut their losses on him
  • Cassian and Jyn on the beach 
  • the rebels passing the computer disk from hand to hand down the hallway (!!!)
You know what, the ‘suddenly, there’s 5 more Winter Soldiers’ subplot

has gotten a lot of flack, and I don’t disagree that it could and should have been handled a lot better, but even as it is, I really really like what it says, or rather, confirms about Bucky.

and it’s funny and sad, but only because this life will end, and it’s this secret world that exists right there in public, unnoticed, that no one else knows about. it’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. that’s what i want out of a relationship. or just life, i guess.
