my favorite part of the whole movie

Went and saw Beauty and the Beast, and I just had to share my experience because it was so pure?

So, like, I get into the theater, find myself a nice spot smack dab midscreen, which is WAY EASIER without thirty people traipsing in behind you in a group, lemme tell you, and I’m just sitting there, by my lonesome, scrolling tumblr and watching whatever weird stuff they’ve got on screen, and a family comes to sit in my row, which was the only empty one not right in front of the screen. Sat down what I thought was a seat away from me until I saw a little girl in an adorable ass red dress climbing over mom and dad to sit next to me. 

Totally fine. I was just off of center and they got to sit right in the middle of the screen, and when she finally gets settled this little girl looks up at me, with a soda half her size in one hand, and somehow both popcorn and candy in her tiny little lap, and she stage whispers to her mom:

“She’s by herself!”

Mom looks embarrassed, but I smile and wave off the apology. 

I go back to my phone, only to realize someone is tugging at my sleeve. Little girl looks up at me, all wide eyes and curiosity, and holds out a napkin filled with popcorn and chocolate. Like, I remember being a kid, and I remember how important candy and popcorn at the theater are, and I think she thought she was saving my life by offering this sustenance.

I almost fucking cried guys, kids are the best.

So I take it and thank her and let her talk my ear off for a few minutes until she needs a drink because she has been talking SO MUCH her mouth is dry. This kid is going places, guys, I’m telling you right now, because she picked up that cup the size of her torso like a champ and angled the straw just right and continued to try to talk to me around her gulps.

While this is happening, on the other side of me another mom and daughter sat down, and, turns out, the girls know each other. I’m guessing, based on the gumption of Red Dress, that they probably met in the lobby before they went into the theater. 

Girl number 2, I’ll call her Princess Dress, because it was a fantastic dress and when I told her so she proceeded to point to every princess along the neck and name them and give me their Stats, proceeds to have a conversation across me with Red Dress.

Both sets of parents were looking like they wanted to bury their heads in their hands, but I was having a blast.

Anyway, eventually lights go down, we get into the movie, and for the most part Red and Princess were content, although every so often Red made sure to pass me a handful of sticky half-melted chocolate. 

Watching a live action version of a movie that I watched for the first time when I was their age was a fuckin’ trip, man. Like. I got super emotional over things I didn’t expect to, and during the wolf scenes I was actually mildly distressed, because Princess was gripping the hand rest so hard on my right I thought she was gonna break it. Any scene I laughed or snorted at got a peal of laughter from my two new best friends, so hopefully no one has to go home and explain why I nearly snorted out my drink during “Be Our Guest” when they went for a visual gag for “After all miss, this is France!”.

During the ballroom scene, Red turned to her mom and whispered “The Beast is handsome!” and it took so much for me not to lean over and whisper back “Girl same.”

But my favorite, MY VERY FAVORITE part of this whole experience was when Gaston shot the Beast - FOR THE THIRD TIME HOLY HELL I KNEW IT WAS DARK BUT GODDAMN THIS IS A KIDS MOVIE ISN’T IT - Red patted my arm because yeah, okay, I was maybe crying a little, look, I know what happens but the movie made me feel things okay. Anyway, she like, pushes herself up in her seat and leans in close and she goes “It’s okay. He’s gonna be okay.”

The point is, children are so pure, and everyone should always watch movies with strangers.

On Iron Man 2

The recent Wank resulted in a rewatch of Iron Man 2, which renewed my love for this movie. Iron Man 2 is hands down my favorite ever MCU film. Ill admit that part of this is probably because its also the first MCU film I saw, and it as a movie has literally shaped my life. 

I hate that some people seem to forget the very specific set of circumstances that led to this movie. This is Tony dying. 

It amplifies his best and his worst. Hell take on the weight of the whole world and not tell anybody because he doesnt want them to worry. He wants to take care of everything. He thinks its his responsibility to, and he thinks he doesnt have the right to complain or ask for help.

He pretends like nothing is wrong, and to keep up appearances, he behaves like how he thinks others think he normally behaves. Honestly, it speaks to his astoundingly low self-image that this who he thinks he is. He thinks these are the actions that would not ring any warning bells. 

Even Natasha falls into his trap. That scene where he asks Natasha what she would do if it was her last birthday was so telling. This is where Natasha, I think, figured it out, and also where she sets out a test: Id do whatever I wanted. What do you really want, Tony Stark? 

And Tony parses this as, pass on my legacy without alerting and worrying anyone, and proceeds to do the entire birthday party thing, which was, objectively, a mess. Natasha sees the birthday party and then parses Tony as this: I want to be the center of attention and blow things up despite endangering people and getting into a fight with my actual best friend. Conclusion: Will not work well in a team. Tony Stark, not recommended.

We, the audience, get to see Tonys inner workings. We see that this is a straight-up existential breakdown. The people around him do not precisely because he works so hard to keep it from them. They suspect that somethings wrong–Rhodey and Pepper ask him whats up; superspies Fury and Nat figure it out with the help of old Howard knowledge. But still, all they see is his erratic behavior because thats all he gives them.

Well, you say, theyre his friends. They shouldve seen through him. Im sorry, but no. Tony is acting against them. Pepper and Rhodey and Happy arent mind-readers, and they shouldnt have to be. Pretty much all the mess in this movie could have been averted if he just talked to them about anything at all. The fact that he doesnt is a result of who he is as a character–too noble for his own good. Whether thats a character flaw or strength is a matter of circumstance.

tl;dr please dont use IM2 to prove either that a) Tony is an asshole, or b) his friends are assholes to him because youd be wrong on both counts because youre ignoring the entire premise of the movie

alliemackenzie28  asked:

Lance with a really high fever. Bonus points for: being confused and scared by a necessary treatment, getting carried or dragged, fainting, shaking/trembling, slowly becoming incoherent during a conversation.

I’m combining this one with @wonderingwhereileftreality‘s suggestion:  “ (i’m a multishipper in a shance mood) Lance overworks himself trying to catch up with everyone else (Bonus points if he’s secretly wants the praise of a certain sexy Space Dad) and Shiro finds him and takes care of him because “I care about your you, Lance!" 

I hope it’s okay!!!

It was movie night for the Paladins. Lance had instigated it, which is why Keith didn’t understand why he was being so moody now. 

“You got to watch your film last week; it’s my turn to choose, so stop pouting,” Pidge chastised. Lance looked up blearily, as if his mind hadn’t been anywhere near the topic of movie night or Pidge’s (admittedly, gorier than anyone cared for) film tastes. 

“What are you waiting for; press play,” Lance instructed softly. He seemed almost asleep. His head kept falling toward Hunk’s shoulder even through just the opening credits, and by the time the actual film had started, he was out cold in the yellow paladin’s lap.

“What’s with him?” Keith whispered to Hunk.

“Shh,” Pidge shushed. “This part’s important.” She seemed upset when she turned around to see that Lance had fallen asleep. “Hey,” she said, indignant, “I stayed awake through your crummy cowboy movie; you don’t get to doze off through my choice.” She kicked him lightly from her place on the ground, and he startled awake. 

“S’goin’ on?” Lance asked blearily, blinking heavily. 

“You fell asleep,” Shiro replied.

“Oh, sorry, Pidge,” Lance apologized sheepishly. She nodded and turned her attention back to the screen, but Shiro didn’t take his eyes away from Lance. The blue paladin rubbed his face tiredly and pulled his jacket tighter around his torso. Shiro himself was a little warm in the heat of the crowded common room, so he pulled off his hoodie and tossed it to Lance. 

“You can borrow it,” he whispered, and Lance looked grateful. 

The truth was, Lance was exhausted. He’d created Paladin Family Movie Night™ before things had gotten so real. Now that he spent most of his nights awake, worrying about comparing with the other paladins, worrying about what might happen if he couldn’t compare with the other paladins–well, he usually woke up in the middle of the night and found that he couldn’t fall back asleep unless he got up and trained. So he spent most nights sparring a punching bag instead of sleeping, and most of his sleep was spent thinking about how he should be sparring a punching bag. 

It wasn’t Shiro’s fault. Not in the slightest; in fact, the opposite. No one had ever made Lance feel more important or worthy than Takeshi Shiro. And that’s why he had to do this for him. He would become the best he could be, for Shiro’s sake.

Lance dozed for most of the movie. He’d managed to keep his eyes more or less open through most of it, but his focus was bleary and warm. It came as a genuine shock when the film ended and the rest of the paladins sat, looking quite pale and queasy, and Pidge asking them excitedly what they thought of it. 

“It was… graphic,” Shiro said. “Lots of blood.”

“It was Hershey’s syrup!” Pidge gushed, “but you can’t even tell because it’s black and white!”

“The plot was lacking,” Hunk offered, “but I liked that they didn’t kill the dog.”

“The special effects were awful,” Keith commented. Pidge’s face fell, realizing that they had not liked her film choices at all.

“What did you think, Lance?” Pidge asked. 

Lance stirred and looked at Pidge, blinking confusedly with his teeth chattering. “Super good,” he sort of shot in the dark, having missed the whole thing. He guessed that was the right answer, because she looked excited.

“At least Lance knows quality films when he sees them,” she boasted. 

“Next week, it’s my turn,” Shiro said uncertainly, “But I don’t know what to choose. I haven’t seen a lot of movies. Lance,” he called, trying to perk the sleepy paladin up and get him involved in what used to be his favorite part of the week, “What’s your favorite movie?”

Lance looked confused and muttered something under his breath.

“I didn’t quite catch that,” Shiro informed. Lance just shook his head and buried his face deeper into Hunk’s shoulder.

“M’too tired to watch another,” he moaned, “I’m sorry.” He sounded way more upset than he should be for just thinking about movie choices.

“Lance? Are you feeling okay?” Shiro asked. The boy’s teeth were still chattering despite wearing Shiro’s too-big hoodie, and he hadn’t taken his face out from the crack between Hunk’s arm and the back of the sofa. 

Lance muttered something about being fine, tired. 

“Something’s not right,” Shiro observed. “He’s been off all evening.”

Hunk pried Lance’s face away from the couch and tried to get him to sit upright, but Lance’s body was limp and hot. He dind’t want to cooperate.

Shiro took Lance’s face between his hands and was alarmed by the heat radiating from his skin. “Keith, find a thermometer,” he instructed, “he’s got a fever.” Lance stirred a bit to look at Shiro’s face.

“Don’t be mad,” Lance pleaded. Shiro’s heart broke.

“Why would I be mad at you?” he asked gently.Lance knew that he was only so ill now because he’d been running himself into the ground, but his fevered brain didn’t understand that Shiro wasn’t following.

“S’my fault,” he replied. “I ruined movie night, and m’not even a better fighter than I was before,” he muttered. 

“What are you talking about, Lance?” Shiro asked desperately.

Keith returned with the thermometer. “Coran said you have to swipe it across his forehead,” Keith explained. 

“Okay, Lance, I’m going to take your temperature,” Shiro said patiently. Lance flinched away from the thermometer as it approached his face, but Shiro had his flesh hand securely around Lance’s neck and it made him feel safer. The machine beeped and Shiro cursed. 

“He’s got a fever of 104.2,” Shiro informed, “This isn’t something he can just rest off.”

“He sat through the whole movie like that?” Pidge asked. “And we didn’t notice?”

Shiro supported Lance’s back as he helped him sit up. “Hey, buddy; you’re sick. Did you know that?” It was entirely possible, he thought, that maybe the bug had struck so suddenly that Lance hadn’t even had time to register what happened. 

“Yeah,” Lance admitted, “M’sorry.” 

“Don’t apologize,” Shiro scolded. 

“You’re mad.”

“I’m not mad, just worried. I care about you,” he explained, “And I don’t want to see you sacrificing just because you think other people expect it.” 

Lance nodded.

“We should get him to the med bay,” Shiro announced, and the rest of the group, quietly and guiltily, carried him there.

The AP United States History Exam is right around the corner. These next few weeks are the most stressful time of the year for most students. So, if you are going to procrastinate, you can procrastinate with style! Here is a list of movies, musicals, videos, ect. that came to mind while I was studying during the year. They are a lot of fun to watch, but they are educational, and most of them are free!

TV Shows:

Liberty’s Kids: a super cute, animated series that takes place during the American Revolution, and highlights some of its aftermath. There are 40 episodes, but each thirty minute episode is full of concrete details. Start watching the first episode here 

Drunk History: Really funny with some topics not often discussed in the textbooks, but very relevant. 

Musicals

Hamilton: obviously this is a no-brainer. The music is full of concrete details and has helped me so much during my multiple choice practice tests dealing with early US development. You can listen to the full soundtrack here. Below is a shortened list of songs that have the most relevant concrete details.

Dogfight: Probably my favorite musical. It’s one night in America during the Vietnam war, and there aren’t a ton of concrete details, but the parts here (starting at 1:19) and here (10:25) accurately reflect the time period. You can start watching the whole musical here. (warning: there is a lot of cursing)

Pocahontas: Okay, let me preface this by saying that there are a lot of inaccuracies in this movie. A lot. But if you disregard the portrayal of Pocahontas and John Smith, there are some CDs. Listen to the Virginia Company for some of the highlights. 

EDIT (7/9/16) : Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson: Though there is some explicit language I picked out the songs that have some great concrete details on Jackson’s presidency and philosophies.

  • Populism Yea Yea: a helpful definition of populism
  • The Corrupt Bargain: this event always confused, and this song definitly clears it up (featuring Henry Clay, John C. Calhoun and John Quincy Adams)
  • The Saddest Song: really sums up Jackson as a president in a different point of view

Videos:

Schoolhouse Rock: Reconnect with your childhood and refresh on some historical events!

The XYZ Affair: i

t may be weird, but you will definitely remember it

The Gadsden Purchase:

Never forget


So that’s my list. All of the links are italicized. If you have any movies/musicals/videos/songs/ect that you think would help feel free to message me and I will add it to list. Good luck to everyone on the test this Friday!

DRAGONS BABYY

This is my favorite shirt in the whole wide world! I got it for $5 at Walmart and I had to scoop it up because Dragonbabyy duh!!

I was born in 1988, the year of the dragon in the Chinese Zodiac. Yes I’m actually part Chinese and yes I’m 29, but I still get carded when buying rated R movies 🙃. I’ve always felt really connected to this mythical creature, I think because I tend to be a loner and love hanging with myself. I’m shy but I can also be fiery and a lil crazy. Cute but psycho. I’m a fucking balancing act. Five years ago I even wrote a song about a guy cheating on me and how he unleashed the dragon and it’s pretty dark. Let’s just call it cute but psycho…

I layered this mega oversized tee over a cropped hoodie to give the look a lil something extra. It’s like accessorising with layers. Threw on my fishnets and paired the whole look with my Nike Air Force Ones. Chokers, a necklace and some babyy hoops for jewelry for that tomboy glam I can’t get enough of. Issa look!

Shirt : Walmart
Hoodie : F21
Fishnets : Savers (thrifted new in packaging)
Nike Air Force Ones : Footlocker (circa 2005)
Hoops : Thrifted
Tattoo Choker : Shop Jeen
Black Choker : DIY
Camo Jacket : Boyfriend’s

Never Too Late

Summary: Bucky’s POV. The reader lives with the Avengers after they rescue her from HYDRA, having been put through almost the same torture as Bucky, but has trouble adjusting to her new life. Based off of the song “Never Too Late” by Three Days Grace.

Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader

Words: 1,436 (lyrics not included)

Warnings: mentions of suicidal thoughts, a kind-of suicide attempt, depression, angst. No actual death though.

A/N: guys I’m telling you right now, if you have a trigger problem with suicide, DO NOT READ. Don’t put yourself through that just to read this. I can’t even tell you to skip to a certain part of the story because it takes up basically the whole story. I chose to write this because Three Days Grace is one of my favorite bands and as someone who suffers from depression and anxiety, I was personally helped by this song and it’s one of my favorite songs ever. Writing this fic meant a lot to me.

Tony reserves Friday nights for movie nights. I usually like to keep to myself, but Steve insists seeing movies is a good way for us to catch up on everything we’ve missed since the forties. Honestly, I believe Tony just likes to parade his wealth and constantly remind the team that we live under his roof, but I’ve been trying to be a good sport and play along. Not just to please Steve, but for Y/N’s sake.

Keep reading

Can we just talk about the end of the credits for Winter Soldier? The Winter Soldier/Bucky going to the museum, and seeing how close he and Steve used to be, and seeing who he really was, just a heartbreaking scene! <<<But at the same time, it was so darn hopeful! Probably one of my favorite parts of the whole movie.

The forest training arc was even better.

My birthday present to myself is artwork from Howl’s Moving Castle (my favorite studio Ghibli film) and a quote from the movie that I didn’t realize carried such relevance to me. This year has taught me that I have the capability to love and love again no matter how much it hurts. I always love with my whole being, and sometimes the weight is just too much and I am left broken. It’s a burden I bear to love so deeply, but I’m learning to love that part of me too ✨

remember you and i sat under fireworks and the whole time instead of watching the sky i watched you or how when we went to the beach for the day i almost crashed the car because i kept glancing over to you singing at the top of your lungs or when we lay together so i could show you my favorite movie and you fell asleep in the first part and i was more interested in seeing how your eyelashes flutter when you dream

it took me a long time to realize you were never looking back at me.

Emperors new groove

(Gif is not mine, by the way.)

Bonus:

(There is definitely going to be a part two to this one. Not only to draw the crocodile river scene, but basically the whole movie! I am having way too much fun! I think my favorite thing to come out of this is Bellwether and Lionheart as Yzma and Kronk! I just want Zootopia 2 to be Bellwether/Lionheart teaming up to seek revenge on Nick and Judy, and I can see their relationship exactly mirroring these two! Haha!  -admin)

I havea ff account (Lily Truesdale) but my works are from book!canon, not show!canon and I'm not sure where you stand with book!verse and CC (I have so much anti cc on my dash I kinda feel bad for liking the books, though what got me into this fandom was the movie...)

Hi anon! I actually started out being a fan of the books and read them all years ago, so I’m fine with book!canon and book!verse. I am a huge fan of the show, but I don’t think you have to love one and hate the other. I also liked the movie (except the ending). I think if I had to pick my favorite of these three mediums, it would be the show, but I think a huge part of that is because the cast is absolutely incredible.

I don’t get into the whole argument over whether the books or show is better. I will admit that I think the show does some things better than the books (Malec for one), but I also believe CC when she says that she was bound by certain restraints getting the book published at that time. The books seem different to me now since watching the show, because I’m looking at them through that lens now, and so I find that I don’t enjoy them as much as I used to. I’d rather read fanfiction.

Listen, I haven’t always been the biggest fan off CC, as I have my issues with her that I won’t get into, but I am not anti CC by any means. If people like her and prefer the books, that’s fine. I like to keep things positive and focus on what I do like, and when I like something I generally want to just consume anything and everything on it and take away from each thing the “good stuff”. I find very little good comes from focusing on things you don’t like. I’m an avid reader, and I always watch shows and movies based on books I like. I rarely like them as well, but I always watch them because the things that they do get right make for an incredible experience of seeing your favorite thing brought to life <3

You should NEVER feel bad for liking what you like. Liking something is a whole lot more productive and positive than hating something. It’s ok to like the books, too. :) It’s ok to share your fanfiction written from book!canon. There are lots of those out there, and I’ve read many, especially from before the show aired. I’m sorry fandom makes you feel worried about being a fan of the books.

I do find myself correcting Alec’s blue eyes to Hazel in my head when reading book ff, because Matt’s eyes are so stunning. I can’t help it. I have a Matt Daddario problem, no offense to blue eyed book Alec. 

I have found you on ff and I will absolutely read your fics. Thank You for sharing and have a beautiful day. <3
