You gotta stay hungry. It’s all over for you the moment you don’t. And in my job, it’s also about exploring yourself. Films are an incredible medium where you get to talk to people. I have these great fans, they write me everyday, telling me about their lives getting better from watching my movies. To me that’s more important than anything else. And as a man in the world, you have to leave something behind, if not what the hell am I doing while I’m here?
Hello there, I just have to say I love your writing so much. I think you’re amazing, I was wondering if I could make a Tom Holland x Reader request? Where reader and Tom are dating but it’s like been for a month or so and reader is short and always has trouble reaching things and doing things. (I’m 4'10 so my short problems are real) and Tom just laughs but does help and keeps reminding reader how much he loves how short she is? I just really need some fluff at the moment :)
“Tommy? Come grab this for me, please?” you ask your boyfriend while standing on your tiptoes, pointing at the baking sheet on the top shelf. You’re baking cookies for Harrison because he just got cast in a short film. The celebration is in an hour and you really want to make him his favourite biscuits before you went. Tom steps forward and wraps one arm around your waist, his hand making contact with your uncovered midriff. You stop reaching towards the cupboard and choose to hug his arm against your body. His other arm reaches out and grabs the baking sheet before handing it to you. “Here you go, sweetness,” he whispers into your hair before stepping back. He retreats back to the couch, but not without pinching your bum first. You swat his hand away.
God, he thinks as he backs away while watching you, I love you.
“Babe! Where’d you put the movie?” you called out to Tom. “On the shelf above the TV!” he shouts back from the bedroom. You reach up to grab it but find yourself unable. Instead of struggling, you opt to grab a tall stool from the kitchen counter and to kneel on that. Tom walks in to see you standing on a wooden stool with your arm raised holding the movie out to him. He sighs happily at the sight before choosing to carry you off the stool to the couch. You squeal with laughter when he picks you up. He tosses you onto the cushioned couch and leans to kiss your forehead. Yup, you think as you pull him into a kiss, I definitely love this guy.
From that first day, you swear that Tom repeatedly places everything high up so you can’t reach. Your tea mugs have gradually moved from the lowest shelf to the second highest, the cereal lives on top of the fridge instead of on the counter beside it. Everything has moved so you can’t grab anything, and now you’re having family over for dinner. Your families are coming at quarter to six so you have to set the table while dinner is cooking.
The plates are on the highest shelf above your mugs. With a huff, you pull yourself up onto the counter. Kneeling there you can reach the plates. You hear a snort of laughter from behind you and you turn to see your boyfriend leaning in the doorway. “Not funny,” you mumble. He strolls over to place his hands either side of your knees. He laughs breathily and rests his forehead against the small of your back. “It’s kinda funny,” he tells you. “Well, you can laugh as you’re carrying plates.” “Can do, shortie.”
Your foot gently kicks his butt as he walks away and he can’t help but chuckle as he hears a muffled “Arsehole”.
“(Y/N)?” Harrison calls as he walks through the front door of your and Tom’s apartment. “In here!” you yell back from the living room. He walks in to see you standing on the back of the couch trying to grab something from above the doorway opposite you. The doorways in your apartment with Tom were obnoxiously tall which means you can’t reach, even will a chair underneath your feet. “Oy, get down from there! Tom will kill me if I was here when you broke your neck from falling,” he scolds. “He’s the one making me do it! He put my fucking keys on top of the doorframe!” At this, Harrison doubles over in laughter.
“I’d understand why,” he says, chuckling. “Why?” you ask. He snorts before replying cheekily, “well, I do have a really good view of your arse from here. It’s definitely not a bad sight.” That gets him a pillow chucked at his face.
I’m totally getting Tom back for this, you think with a smile on your face.
“Tom, this needs to stop. I can’t do anything around our house without getting on my tiptoes,” you berate Tom when he walks through the door. “I don’t see what the problem is,” he replies cheekily. “How’d you end up getting your keys?” At this comment, Harrison walks out from behind you into the hallway. Tom doubles over in laughter, “YOU CALLED HARRISON!” he shrieks amused. “Yeah, and apparently I have a nice arse,” you say and wink at Harrison. With that comment, Tom’s laughter dies and he begins to glare at his best friend. You turn to Harrison and get on your tiptoes to kiss his cheek. “Thanks, Haz. You were a big help, today.” Let’s just say Tom was a bit mad at the both of you for a few days.
You’ve gotten used to the height of everything by now. You’ve mastered counter climbing as well as chair mounting. Tom can’t help but smile lovingly when he sees your daily conquests to get a tea mug or the cereal box. He likes to watch when you stand on a stool and reach up because his large t-shirts you sleep in ride up your thigh. When you go to grab your jacket from the back of the front door, you instinctively kick your leg up. He doesn’t think he has seen anything better, though, than when you stand on his feet on your tiptoes just to lay a loving kiss to his lips.
“Babe,” he says finally. It’s a Sunday morning and you’re both in lying bed. You hum to acknowledge him. “I love you,” he whispers into your hair, “so, so much.” “I love you too, superhero.”
I love you more, he thinks.
“No, you don’t,” you tell him, still facing away from him.
“What?” he questions.
You turn to face him and snuggle into the pillow before grabbing his hand and wrapping it around your waist.“I can tell right there you were thinking ‘Oh I love you more, though’. But you don’t. It’s a fact.”
He giggles and tells you, “But I do, though. I love you to infinity.”
“Yeah?” You ask.
“Yeah,” he tells you sincerely; a loving look in his eyes.
When you say, “Well, I love you infinity plus two.” He can’t help but laugh.
A YouTuber AU SnowBaz fanfic for the Carry On Countdown
Simon Snow’s first YouTube video is one of my
favourites. It’s as painfully awkward as
any other YouTuber’s first video. He
sits up too straight in his chair, he smiles and laughs too mechanically, and
the film quality itself is poor, with half of his words lost to shoddy editing.
Yet despite all this, it’s adorable.
of course, it’s the origin of the biggest OTP on YouTube, SnowBaz.

movement. “Welcome to the first video on

laugh. It’s so damn cringe-worthy.

it’s everyone’s favourite part.

posts more frequently. He often films in
the living room, which drives Baz insane.

“Besides, the viewers keep saying they want to see you.”
old Baz. Sarcastic and full of
himself. They don’t appear to realize
it, but the two of them balance each other out perfectly.
by little, Baz begins to make his mark on Simon’s channel. At first we only hear him from off-screen,
offering his two bits about nearly everything Simon has to say. Many of his comments are admittedly quite
mean and uncalled for, but Simon never edits them out. Baz is the invisible heckler. Viewers begin to latch onto this weird relationship
of apparent hatred and, as YouTube viewers are wont to do, turn it into a new
ship. “SnowBaz” they call it, and before
long the comment sections on all of Simon’s videos are full of things like “I
ship it” and “OTP”.

live people that I’ve never even met like they’re objects of sorts. But even I can’t deny that the two of them
would be cute together. Provided they
stop hating each other.
Baz appears onscreen for the first time.
on the couch in the background, facing away from the camera. All we can see is long black hair. He only moves when he’s shouting ridicule at
Simon’s words. Once he turns his head

of his face. This time the comments are
all “is that Baz?” and “OMG BAZ”.
that he starts to appear more often.
Sometimes he’s facing the screen, looking down at his phone or a
book. He’s tall, and his hair reaches
his shoulders. The expression on his
face goes between concentration and a sneer, that latter of which he reserves
for his heckling. It doesn’t take long
for people to start commenting on how attractive he is. Still Simon leaves all the footage of Baz in
his videos, not hiding a single rude comment from his viewers.
Simon tries to get Baz to join him for a “meet my flatmate” video. Baz responds simply by flipping Simon off in
the background, which Simon has to pixel out.
He’s gotten better at editing at this point.
Simon posts daily vlogs on days when he does things that he considers
exciting. The things that Simon finds
exciting are too cute for words. They
tend to be little events like going to a coffee shop, things that are almost
mundane but for some reason they excite him.
He does this thing where he dances when he’s excited. He’ll bob his head cheerfully as he walks,
glad to just be out. He’s gone to the
grocery store with Baz a few times in his vlogs. Those videos are some of the best ones. They bicker about everything from which kind
of milk to get to who gets to carry the baskets. Sometimes we can see Baz’s mouth quirk like
he’s trying not to laugh, like all this bickering is just a game for him. Of course, this sends the SnowBaz shippers
into a frenzy, the idea that maybe, just maybe, Baz doesn’t hate Simon as much
as he lets on.
there’s one video on Simon’s channel that is the absolute bread of life for
anyone who ships the two of them. Simon
is doing a Q&A, and as usual Baz is sitting and reading in the background.

Simon leans in close to the camera, “I have been messaging with someone quite a
lot. I don’t know who the person is, but
we’ve gotten really close and I’m starting to think -”
you keep it down, Snow,” Baz pipes up, his voice tight. “I’m trying to read over here.”
doesn’t speak of it any further, but Baz sneaks glances at the back of Simon’s
head more than once before the video is over.
I don’t know how Simon could have not noticed it. Certainly every single one of his viewers
did, which is to say over a million people.
Perhaps love is completely daft.
I arrive home from work on a particularly rainy day in October, I am delighted
to open my computer and find that Simon is in the middle of a livestream. Comments flow constantly from the sidebar and
I settle in to join the party. He’s in a
different room this time, one with a neatly made bed on which he sits, and I
gather that it’s his room. It looks so
clean, but I wonder if there’s a disaster hiding behind the camera.

few more questions first.” He’s quiet
for a minute as all the viewers catch up with the stream. “Here’s one: ‘Did you find out who was

before answering. “Funny you should ask,
because yes, I did, and that’s a perfect segway into what I wanted to talk
about.” He shifts on his bed. “I have a bit of an announcement -”

He seems… nervous?

This is one of my favourite moments in Beyond (okay, there’s loads of moments, the majority of the film is a moment but I digress).
Firstly, the last scene we saw with Spock and McCoy was before night fell.
The went into a cavern thing to explore and Spock promptly fell to the floor. And we don’t see these two again until now.
It’s daytime again. We’re taken into the scene by Mccoy calling Spock’s name. He’s clearly very concerned about the condition Spock is in. He can’t rouse Spock by calling his name and we can assume that he has been unconscious some time by now.
So knowing that he can’t keep yelling at him, and maybe he’s already tried shaking Spock awake because McCoy purposely places his hands on Spock’s face. It seems very deliberate the way he places his hands on both sides of Spock’s face like that.
And it does what he wants, Spock wakes, unfocused and unclear, but….
you can see the second he realises where he is and what’s happening.
He doesn’t just look like he’s just remembered what happened, he looks quite alarmed (for an emotion repressing Vulcan anyway). And McCoy is making skin to skin contact so goodness knows what he’s getting from McCoy. It’s clear enough that Spock can’t have been clear headed enough to be blocking anything.
And as soon as he gets himself together, he actively removes McCoy’s hand from his face.
The one that Spock doesn’t remove lingers. Maybe the transference of emotions goes both ways and McCoy gets a glimpse into the emotional pit that is inside of Spock and isn’t quite prepared to just let go of that. But he does as Spock assures him that he’s fine.
Summary: a best friends to lovers fic based off the prompts, “we always share blankets on the couch, I’m sure sharing the bed for the night is fine too,” and, “your lips are getting really close to mine.”
Warnings: there’s a touch of swearing here and there!

When you’d left to visit a newly opened diner with your best friend, Stiles, it wasn’t raining. In fact, the sky was such a clear amber colour that you were convinced you’d be able to see the stars when evening broke. By the time you were leaving the diner, however, you were shown to have made a grave assumption.
“It’s pouring, Stiles,” you said dryly, peering out the diner windows. Stiles was beside you, zipping up the front of his hoodie.
“Well done for stating the obvious, Y/N,” Stiles teased, causing you to groan in frustration. You hadn’t had the sense to bring a hoodie; instead you were wearing a thin shirt and a pair of jeans. One look outside at the sheets of rain cascading from the sky was enough to make you regret your decision completely.
“We’ll need to run,” you murmured, wishing one of you had had the sense to bring a car.
Stiles snorted, shaking his head. “I’d rather not. The rain is fun, Y/N! Loosen up a little,” you gave him an unimpressed look, reaching out to push his shoulder playfully.
“That’s easy for you to say - you have a hood!” Stiles grinned at this, nodding gleefully as he flicked the hood over his head.
“We should leave, I think the waiter’s getting impatient,” Stiles said, gesturing to where your waiter was lingering beside a couple who were clearly after your booth.
Humming in agreement, you followed Stiles towards the bar where you’d been instructed to pay. “How much was it?” You queried, not remembering the sum printed on the receipt.
Stiles waved his hand, digging in his jeans for his wallet. He pulled it out a moment later, nimble fingers pulling out a few notes with a flourish. “Don’t worry about it, I’ll pay.”
“Stiles-” you tried to interject, only to be on the receiving end from one of his infamous glares.
“Y/N, this was my idea! Let me pay for you. Please,” one glance at the earnest expression on your best friend’s face and you gave in, knowing his stubborn nature to be a force to be reckoned with.
“Fine,” you grumbled, waiting beside him as Stiles settled the tab.
Once the money was exchanged, Stiles linked your arms together and pulled you towards the door. You groaned, the icy rain outside looking the opposite of inviting. Stiles spoke up, giving your arm a squeeze, “we’ve got to face it eventually, may as well do it now. Besides, my house is only a five minute walk away.”
“Let’s do it,” you agreed, figuring it made more sense to get it over with.
To say the rain was heavy was an understatement: the moment you stepped outside, raindrops were splashing all over your body, coating you from head to toe. You shrieked, speeding up considerably. Still attached to Stiles, the both of you began to speed walk in the direction of his house, the rain making the journey slightly difficult.
By the time you stumbled into Stiles’ porch, you were completely soaked through.
This is insane for my head to get around at the moment, but I just want to say a few things about the xmen and wolverine series since I’ve just watched logan.
Okay first of all, I was born in 2000, when the first xmen movie was released, meaning I didn’t start watching until I just turned 3 years old. The first xmen DVD was in my Christmas stocking and it was my all time favourite film until xmen 2 came out, and then it all repeated.
Now I’m here, 3 months from turning 17 and still wrapping my head around the fact that wolverine and professor X has now came to an end.
My childhood was completely surrounded by Marvel, no matter what movie I loved it, because it made me feel something that nothing else ever could. It made me feel accepted, that it was okay to be different.
So all my life up until now, at this very moment I have always watched, liked and talked about whatever made me happy, whatever made me feel accepted no matter how much people thought I was weird, or different. Because of the first film I had ever enjoyed, the first movie that happened to be xmen, I am who I am today.
So this post really just expands on the fact that I know I’m not alone with this feeling, and I will never be able to express how grateful I am for marvel, the the actors and actresses and the creators, because without them, life would of been so different for me.
So in honour of Logan, Charles, Erik and every other xmen old or new that made the movies so special, thank you.
This fleeting little scene in Through Heaven’s Eyes is one of my favourite little Moses moments in the film. It shows that deep down, Moses really was one of the most giving and loving people in the film, willing to open his heart to anyone regardless of age. As we see later in “When You Believe” as well, he really seems to love kids, and they too are drawn to him because of his good nature and open heart.
Also the fact that he’s seen here juggling fruit goes to show that while he has matured from the spoiled brat irresponsible, impulsive person he had been, he has not lost his playful nature. This teaches viewers that while one day they will mature into responsible adults, that does not mean they cannot keep their compassion, love, and playfulness. After all, as the old adage goes, “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” Adults need play just as much as children do (just for different reasons, obviously), and I love that Prince of Egypt has this lesson as well.
Moses has grown up, but we can still recognise him as the Moses we met at the beginning of the film. He has lost his irresponsible and reckless habits of teenhood, but retained his innate love, compassion, and ability to just relax and be playful, especially with other children.
Spiderman Homecoming was masterful storytelling. It completely exceeded my expectations, and I had expected a great film. It was writing and directing at its best. As such, it is by far one of the best Marvel movies ever, not to mention an amazing movie overall. Director Jon Watts did an incredible job combining so many different elements, to make this not only an entertaining film, but a critically good one. Watts and the writers cleverly weave together a plot full of great action scenes, comedy relief and the second hand embarrassment characteristic of a high school coming of age drama. In particular, the direction of the early scenes highlight Watts’ precision in crafting multiple settings for Peter to inhabit, as two different personas. On top of the direction, the dialogue was Marvel at its best, remarkably moving between comedy and tension from beginning to end. As someone who was sad to see John Francis Daley leave Bones (in order to pursue screenwriting more), I am so glad to see him at his very best throughout this film. There is no doubt in my mind that this movie brought together the very best, and as such, created one of the best superhero movies I’ve ever seen.
This movie was promoted first and foremost as a coming of age drama, except one that is also part of the superhero genre. It is very much both of these, to the point that it is difficult to even separate the two. I would have to say however that on reflection, this film is very much about a high school kid coming to terms with himself and what makes him different, just in this case his major point of difference is superhero powers. You cannot completely separate Peter Parker from Spiderman, and that’s why this second reboot works so well, precisely because all aspects of who Peter Parker is are brought together. Carefully balanced, Peter’s different personas (and their associated problems) bleed into his separate identities. What Peter experiences as a high school kid and as Spiderman are completely entangled, these experiences affect both personas and his reactions to various situations.
The transitions between different scenes and plot points were seamless, as both aspects of Peter’s life come together, and interact with each other. The incredible score really set the tone, and enabled these smooth transitions very effectively. There’s nothing better than watching a movie such as this in a cinema full of other people that are just as invested as you are, on its opening day. The joy and tension is heightened precisely because you can feel everyone else reacting to what you are watching. The movie was littered with humourous lines and sequences that had the entire cinema laughing as one. Even better were the scenes in which you could feel the tension emanating from the entire audience, as Peter fought for his life, or even more so, at the great plot twist towards the end of the film.
From what I could tell, everyone in the cinema was shocked by the plot twist. I had heard from an early review that there was a great plot twist, and didn’t think much more of it until it showed up towards the end of the film. One thing I’ve complained to various people about the Marvel movies, is that often their villains are rather poorly constructed. In this case however, the Vulture is a well-rounded, even sympathetic villain at times. His motivations and actions are even understandable in the situation that he finds himself in, even though those actions are clearly immoral. And yet, the very plot twist that reveals the Vulture as Liz Allen’s own father makes the Vulture an even better villain. The best villains are often the ones connected to the hero, and it is clear that Peter battles many emotions over the Vulture once he learns the truth. It is this connection that causes Peter to use everything he has to save the Vulture. And in some small way, it is this determination to ultimately save him that suggests the Vulture will not reveal Peter’s identity to anyone. In another movie, this plot twist might seem cheap, simply added for shock value. Whilst it does shock, it also adds another layer of depth to the narrative and the villain’s storyline, which was already miles ahead of many earlier MCU villains.
I actually liked how the trailers were handled, for I had a preconceived idea where the different scenes would fit in, but they turned out to be wrong. I genuinely hate when you watch a movie and feel as if you’ve already seen it because the trailers show everything, but I didn’t think that was the case here. The trailers gave different impressions of the film’s focus, and as such, the unfolding storyline was just so much more interesting. One thing that stands out is that Tony Stark has a much smaller role than anticipated based on the trailers. In fact, most of his scenes were in the trailers, emphasising that he was used more for promotion purposes and settling Peter into the MCU. This is a positive of the film, because it would not do for the first Spiderman movie of the MCU to be overshadowed by too much Tony Stark. I felt that his appearances were handled well, he was there just barely enough to keep an eye on Peter as a mentor, and yet allow for Peter to grow and fight independently of him.
Tony’s inclusion however is a critical aspect of Peter’s journey. Without Tony’s presence to begin with, Peter would not be on his way to eventually joining the Avengers, nor would he be as determined to do so. Furthermore, it is Tony’s absence that propels his story forward, as Peter is desperate to prove his worth. And yet, it is this desperation which leads to him putting people in danger, and earning Tony’s disappointment. We learn that all along, Tony has been listening to Peter, though his lack of communication suggested otherwise. Whilst Peter is demoralised on Tony taking the suit back, he chooses not to give up. In doing so, he fights harder and smarter, earning back Tony’s trust. This aspect of Peter’s journey is so important because it emphasises that he’s still a kid learning to be a superhero, and makes mistakes along the way. This Spiderman’s genius lies in the fact that Peter is constantly learning, to improve not only his skills, but how he reacts to situations. Even by the end of the movie, Peter has not stopped learning. He recognises that he is not yet ready to join the Avengers, even as Tony is ready to announce his acceptance into the Avengers to the media (and I loved that Pepper showed up for a couple of minutes, and she and Tony are back together!).
I enjoyed the first post credits scene with the Vulture in prison, as his decision not to reveal Peter’s identity references his earlier decision to give Peter an out, and request a thank you for not killing him. It does appear to suggest however, that the other man may come after Spiderman at some point. I especially enjoyed the second post credits scene, even though Marvel were obviously trolling us with it. I can’t believe they actually gave us a Captain America PSA extolling the importance of patience-even if you end up waiting a long time for something that you didn’t want/expect! It was certainly a humourous moment.
What worked well throughout this movie were the characters, particularly the kids. Whilst I didn’t care much for Liz as a love interest (mostly she just wasn’t very interesting to me), I really enjoyed Peter’s interactions with the other characters. There were so many great friendship moments between him and Ned, and it’s significant that Ned discovers his secret early on, as the film is peppered with his questions, but more importantly, Ned is therefore able to help Peter out when he cannot rely on the help of anyone else, including Tony and Happy. And without Ned, Peter would certainly have died towards the end of the movie. I also loved the updated interpretations of Flash and MJ. I knew from the trailers that Michelle was going to be my favourite, but unfortunately she had few scenes apart from what we had already seen in trailers and sneak peeks. This was probably my one major criticism of the movie, because I felt she could’ve been utilised more, although it’s evident that she will have a larger role in the next movie. Michelle revealed as MJ was perhaps not too much of a shock for many in the audience, given that this has been a prevailing theory since Zendaya’s casting.
The acting in this movie was amazing. I have heard before from many people that they liked Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker and Andrew Garfield’s Spiderman. But this version is different, and in my opinion, better (although I did enjoy The Amazing Spiderman). Tom Holland impressed fans in Captain America: Civil War, and continues to do so. Both his Peter Parker and Spiderman were incredible, and brought a new vitality to the character. This version appears to combine the aspects of both personas into one amazing character. But it is not just Holland that brings a lot to the acting table, with RDJ, Michael Keaton, Jacob Batalon, Zendaya, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori and Marisa Tomei bringing everything they have to their scenes. And I must admit, that I absolutely loved the final scene, in which May finally discovers Peter’s secret.
I highly recommend Spiderman Homecoming. At this stage, I’m even more excited for the next Spiderman instalment. And hopefully, the upcoming Marvel movies live up to the high bar that Spiderman has now set.
This is a stand out scene in one of my favourite films. Catherine struggles to move, neurodegenerative illness destroying her memory, cognition and now balance. Rollin uses a hypnotized, sleepwalking style except when Catherine briefly has a moment of clarity, becoming overcome by despair and frustration with her body. Elisabeth feeds and holds her, knowing that their brains will decay further, that they won’t remember caring for each other.
I have just watched Wonder Woman film and now I want to watch it again. And again. And ten times more. It is amazing movie! So good, beautiful, kind, wonderful story! Gal Gadot is a real goddess, her Diana is so true. There are some moments to laugh at and sometimes I wanted to cry. This film made me feel a lot of different emotions, but all of them were just right.
And the story of Diana and Steve… oh, now it is one of my favourite stories!
Diana becoming a hero… it is super smart, deep and and well thought-out line.
They made it. At last. Bravo, Patty Jenkins! Bravo, Gal Gadot, you ARE Wonder Woman we all waited and wanted to see.
Dan waking phil up... two times 1 that moment when Dan sit on the edge of Phils bed and he shakes him and says "phil, phil, phil, vloging vloging and Phil is like "I hate you" which sounds so cute and definetly means "I love you" 2 the tatinof movie, where they sit/lay togheter and dan plays with Phils hair and phils doesnt even notice at first that Dan is filming.
those two are definitely some of my faves as well but the first one makes my heart Melt bc phil’s voice when he says ‘i hate you’ is the softest most loving fucking thing i have ever heard in my entire goddamn life
