no i don't have feelings about this movie no

i just remembered a rumor when tfa came out about how poe/finn/rey wasnt supposed to be the main trio and the next movie was gonna have other characters or something and that they had to make a lot of changes for the next movie because people liked finn and poe and like uuuuuuuuuuuuuh so it was true?? im so sad thinking they are really gonna get sidelined or given unimportant roles because poe was supposed to die at the start and finn was just created as a plot device for rey and the !! Surprise she’s the force sensitive one!! Ddmsmskd im so mad and everything fucking sucks

I know I haven’t been here in a while, and I’ve seemed to have lost focus on what this blog is about (did I ever have a focus?) but I’m so disappointed with the way they’re going about this new Star Wars trilogy. I was so excited about it when we first got the trailer and now I’m just ‘ehhh’ about it all over again with the more news we get. Like, they have no direction, no plan, and it just sounds like an unnecessary mess. 

dad and i watch captain america: the winter soldier
  • dad: oh god it's starting shut up i've been waiting for this for months
  • (movie starts)
  • dad: THESE ARE THE BICEPS OF FREEDOM
  • dad: i don't know what's happening but the french guy fighting cap looks like french macklemore
  • me: how do you even know who macklemore is?
  • dad: i'm hip. i'm cool
  • me: don't you do it
  • dad: i'm gonna pop some tags, only got 20 baguettes in my pocket
  • (five minutes later)
  • dad: is that the Falcon? that's totally the Falcon
  • me: how do you know?
  • dad: i used to read the comic books trust me on this i'm an expert. his superpower was that he could talk to birds
  • me: birds?
  • dad: i mean in hindsight it probably wasn't the most useful thing ever
  • dad: if this winter soldier is supposedly a ghost in the machine that nobody's ever seen, and nobody will ever catch, you would think showing up in broad daylight and blowing up cars would not be his modus operandi
  • dad: how the heck did he laser through concrete??
  • me: idk dad it's nick fury he can probably do whatever he wants
  • dad: i'm sorry attractive nurse who just so happens to live next door, my heart belongs to a seventy year russian dude with a bionic arm
  • me: what
  • dad:
  • dad: nick fury isn't dead. justice never dies. he probably has a billion clones in some top secret storage facility, just waiting for their organ harvest.
  • me: ew dad gross no
  • dad: i really relate to that apple store employee
  • me: we all do dad
  • dad: oh that's that guy from the first movie! i remember him! he was my favorite, his eyes were so blue, and he loved steve so much. i wanted them to get together
  • me: dad good god
  • dad: he was a little less marilyn manson at that point though
  • dad: not that guyliner isn't a good look for this guy
  • dad: when a deadly russian assassin wears eyeliner, it's 'he's so dreamy' and 'wow what a badass'
  • dad: but when i do it it's 'you're too old' and 'bald guys can't pull off make-up'
  • me: dad it was halloween and it was one time you need to let this go
  • dad: so bucky barnes, aka cute cocky guy who died in the first movie, aka steve roger's best friend/boyfriend, is a top secret super scary brainwashed hydra agent?
  • me: mmm-hm
  • dad: called it
  • dad: do you think single handedly destroying jets is just a common, everyday thing for cap? punch a few tanks, feed a few pigeons, take out a plane, help old ladies cross the street...
  • dad: captain america is like your grandad minus the booze and the cussing
  • dad: in all honesty that was a little anti-climactic
  • dad: i was 100% sure nick fury was gonna descend majestically from the heavens, 'All I do is Win' blaring in the background, and single-handedly save everyone's ass
  • dad: scarjo and chris evans are two of the most beautiful people in the world and they are both in this movie and i don't know how to feel about it i have butterflies in my stomach i'm a schoolboy again
  • me: you know on second thought we should have brought mom
  • dad: where's hawkeye? where's bruce? where's tony? where's thor? WHERE ARE ALL THE OTHER AVENGERS AS THE ENTIRETY OF SHIELD IS COMPROMISED AND NICK FURY DIES
  • me: maybe they figured steve could handle it
  • dad: maybe they're all lazy assholes

so I’m going through the atomic blonde tag and I literally just saw a post saying that the movie is sexist because charlize theron looks “too thin” in the trailer, and because it’s “unrealistic” for a woman to be able to beat up men who are significantly larger than her, especially in heels??? 

like??? buddy. pal. my guy.  

this is a female-lead film in an almost entirely male-dominated genre (seriously, when was the last time you saw an action movie where the main character was a.) female, and b.) not someone’s wife/girlfriend?), directed by an established filmmaker (david leitch, best known for his work on john wick), starring an oscar-winning actress who is also producing it herself, featuring a romantic subplot between two women, with feminist themes in the trailers and promotional material, and you’re going to boycott it… because the main character (a secret agent who is required to keep high standards of physical fitness for her job) is too fit??? or because she’s too feminine??? (I mean, I can run and jump and climb in heels, and I’m definitely not a highly-trained spy.) if you genuinely believe that conventionally attractive/traditionally feminine women being portrayed as tough and badass is “unrealistic,” then it sounds like the only one being sexist here is you. 

I want to point out that there should be a huge trigger warning for rape/sexual assault for the last 20 minutes of A Cure For Wellness like it’s really disturbing and is honestly just gross so I just want to make it known for people who really have issues with that. Feel free to reblog and add other notes about the movie

My opinion of the moon signs
  • Aries: bro u get me. We both cry at least 28 times a day and lowkey hate having feelings. We can't stand showing people that we are actually big babies and we are too defensive but at LEAST WE GET EACH OTHER.
  • Taurus: ur always centered and calm and a lil bab but if you tell me I'm the only person you've told about something (that you've told everyone) one MORE TIME IM GOING TO SNAP.
  • Gemini: yes, I believe in aliens. No I don't think bigfoot has a vendetta against you. I don't get why you just told me your life story but your mother seems like a nice lady.
  • Cancer: you make me feel like a shitty person because I don't like feelings or being empathetic or putting effort towards other people. IT'S WHATEVER THO.
  • Leo: I see right thru you. I'm a Leo. I know why you are doing that. The Validations™. I know. It's me on the daily. You're doing good tho.
  • Virgo: IF YOU DO NOT CALM DOWN RIGHT NOW. They don't care that you said "you too" when they said "have a good meal". EVERY ONE DOES THAT. DONT WORRY ABOUT IT.
  • Libra: so hot. hot damg. Doesn't know how to pick movies or if they want a bottle or a can. Over compromising champion of the masses. Too nice to be mean to which is hard on me because I'm mean to those I love.
  • Scorpio: what you think you are- murder death fear me am evil. What u actually are- smol bean and afraid to be hurt again, does the same things that you did before that got u hurt in the first place though??
  • Sagittarius: NICE MAKING PLANS. #cancelled. ALWAYS. Also. Nice use of sarcasm to hide ur feels. JK IF YOU MAKE ONE MORE SARCASTIC REMARK ILL YELL. I'm already yelling tho...
  • Capricorn: emotional lil bab. Stop beating yourself up. Its okay to feel things and its okay to admit that you aren't having a good day. BUT IF YOU SASS ME ONE MORE TIME.
  • Aquarius: IF YOU DISTANCE URSELF ANYMORE YOULL BE ENTIRELY IN SPACE. I admire the fact that you can go a whole 24 hours (three years?!??) without crying. I can't achieve that but I have aspirations.
  • Pisces: S T R E S S. M E. O U T. if you do not like the choice. Why did you make it. You are the controller of ur own destiny. Ily but wyd.

No One Talks Shit like a Shimada.

Been havin’ a lot of bro bonding feels since the comic came out. Like, if Genji really does have an arm and more importantly a tiddie under that armor than i think he’d eventually show it when he’s around Hanzo as part of healing process for both of them. and find some things haven’t changed when they fall back into easy banter, talking shit, being Extra™ and razzing each other about their respective love-interests like when they were young. 

  • Blanche: So... What do you feel like doing?
  • Spark: How about a movie? I rented Funny Girl and All About Eve!
  • Blanche: Those sound kind of...
  • Blanche: Gay.
  • Spark: Yeah, they do, don't they..?
  • Blanche: I like Lord of the Rings.
  • Spark: I love Lord of the Rings!
  • Blanche: They have the best battle sequences ever filmed.
  • Spark: Oh, my God. That's exactly what Candela says.
  • Blanche: I think Viggo Mortensen was born to play the role of Aragorn.
  • Spark: Candela says that, too!
  • Blanche: Oh, Yeah?
  • Blanche: Well, does Candela say that you have the most soulful eyes she's ever seen?
  • Spark: ...
  • Spark: [giggles]

Hey I have a question, would you say that when marnie was there and only yesterday are appropriate to watch with someone's mom?? I don't know anything about them I just know that sometimes ghibli movies that aren't released by Disney are a little less family friendly and I wanted to be sure before I asked my mom to watch them with me 😅

When Marnie was There is fine, there’s nothing to be worried about there. Only Yesterday does feature themes that might make some people feel uncomfortable because they’re not what we’re traditionally used to in the west, especially in an animation. It focuses on a young girl’s experience of moving into adulthood, and how she deals with things like love, career, menstruation, etc. The Japanese aren’t shy regarding things that are completely natural. ^___^ xox

What kills me, what absolutely slaughters me, about Batman VS Superman
Is that if you sit down and watch the movie and I mean the entire movie. Not the theatrical version but the extended directors cut, is that it is an amazing movie. It’s fucking phenomenal.
BUT Snyder had to cut out stuff for time, and 90% of the problems people had with it?
Solved by watching the extended version.
So it’s got this terrible rap for pacing problems, and too many subplots and everything. However, when you watch the movie as it is meant to be seen, yes it’s a long ass movie, but it is a coherent narrative that shows the genius of Lex Luthor in a way that hasn’t been showcased in ages.

pomrania  asked:

I want to make sure this idea isn't inherently horribly offensive, before I invest time into it: people getting superpowers from how "othered" and "I don't belong" they feel (from race, orientation, disability, etc). The powers themselves are not determined by the "otherness", only the strength of the power. Any character who finds a "home", no longer has superpowers (but they have people who love and accept them).

Powers Gained from being Oppressed

Matilda works like this – the original book, not the movie – except it’s not about oppression, it’s about abusive and neglectful parents. They don’t let her read at her reading level (she’s six but she’s smart enough to be in the sixth grade) so she winds up telekinetic. Once she’s moved into the proper grade level at the end she stops being telekinetic.

I don’t know how I feel about applying that towards pain from bigotry. It sounds like it could be a “satisfying” idea to write (like, your hatred only makes me stronger! you can’t tie me down) but at the same time it puts a positive spin on something there really isn’t any positive to. Like, in real life, I can’t fly because of homophobia. I don’t get any benefits because of homophobia. It is a 100% negative.

But I could also see someone wanting to write out their own pain this way. Like “ha! you wouldn’t let me in the right bathroom? Well, I can now poop money.” So I don’t want to tell another oppressed person how to cathartically deal with their own pain.

-Mod Shira

It depends on who writes it and how it’ll be written. At first read this felt as if your characters’ struggle was somehow fodder for your story and that we’d be enjoying some sort of struggle story while they would be punished for finally getting a better life (as they lose their powers). 

But Shira made some excellent points in that it can be a way to process and deal with your own struggles. That you can find the strength to get through all the horrible things life throws at you and that in the end you find a different kind of strength. Something like that. From such a perspective I feel like something very beautiful could be written which could be very empowering even, but it needs to be written by the right person and it takes a lot of care and research to know what to do and what to leave out. 

So my advice to you is to write this close to home. To give it a personal touch so it can be authentic. You can still write characters who experience struggles unlike your own, but you’ll definitely need good beta-readers to help you crop out the problematic parts and show you where you might have strayed too far. With this I mean to not write other people’s stories or what it’s like to experience life as an identity you don’t share (random example: like adding in a Black character, but not to write about what it’s like to be Black in present day America, etc. if you as a writer are not Black yourself).

this critic pans the spin-off and praises Spader

I have no interest in the spin-off but do enjoy reading how the critics think it’s dead in the water. I especially like it when the critic praises Spader in the same review.


Excerpt from review at https://www.yahoo.com/tv/tv-review-blacklist-redemption-015805172.html

“With all of this confusing cognitive dissonance, it sort of seems like “The Blacklist: Redemption” is about to fall apart any second — and though it doesn’t make for particularly coherent storytelling…

But the real question for “The Blacklist: Redemption’s” future success is whether or not Janssen and Eggold will be able to carry a title that has been, until now, entirely dependent on Spader’s magnetism. Based on the premiere, it seems unlikely — Tom is not even the second-most interesting character from “The Blacklist,” and Scottie’s mystique makes it hard to feel intimately connected to her character. But the premiere reveals Terry O’Quinn as Howard — Scottie’s presumed-dead husband, and therefore, Tom’s father. This is a less thrilling reveal than one would hope, but “The Blacklist: Redemption” is doubling down on its soap-opera-meets-spy-movie theatrics, where everything is about parentage and terrible buried secrets. Between them, the three actors might have enough brute-force charisma to match just one James Spader. I wouldn’t bet on it, though.

anonymous asked:

Red, have you seen the posts about the new Beauty and the Beast movie and the "gay representation" in it? I agree that there are huge issues with LaFou and I don't think it can be "good representation," but every post I've seen about it talks about how Disney is inherently regressive, but I can't help but think of Star and Marco and feel like that isn't 100% true? LaFou is fucked up, but Princess Marco is so very right. Do you have any thoughts on this? I have really mixed feelings about it.

I mean Princess Marco is great and all but this is stuff Daron’s had to fight tooth and nail to get into Star Vs, and it’s only here because she has a LOT of leverage as not only Disney’s only female showrunner but also the creator of a slowly emerging cash cow they can’t afford to lose.

They’re “progressiveness” only amounts to the fact that this stuff has a chance, and the small amount of LGBT content they’ve allowed the starcrew to put forward doesn’t exactly make up for their own fuckups, and even then, Disney XD still has a lot of catching up to do.

Quidnunc and ma speedy boi peter maximoff

Peter + Quidnunc – One who always has to know what’s going on.

Your socked feet padded softly against the hardwood floors as you headed towards the garage. The floorboards creaked occasionally, but weren’t loud enough to wake anyone up. Or so you hoped. As you reached the garage door you pulled on your boots, fearing they may have been too loud before. The door groaned open and you held your breath, expecting Hank or Alex to barge out of somewhere and send you back to bed. Relief washed over you as the house stayed in its silent state. You quickly headed into the garage to look for the cabinet with the keys.

Yours eyes peered around the dark room, a breeze sending a chill up your spine. You tightly pulled your sweater around you, letting out a low breath as pain began to twist in your abdomen.

“What’re you doing here?” A voice spoke next to your ear before you let out a scream. You were soon whipped around, with a hand covering your mouth. In the dark room you could make out the figure to be the one and only, Peter Maximoff.

Peter stood with his hand over your mouth for a few seconds, before dropping it back to his side. He smiled at you, flicking on the light switch. You let out a hiss, shading your face from the light as a frown began to tug at your lips. “Why are you here?” You said, exasperation evident in your tone.

“Heard you walking around, wanted to see why.” He shrugged. “So you gonna steal a car or something, run off to see a boyfriend, go drifting, sneak into–”

“What–no I just need to get something.” You interrupted Peter’s interrogation, pushing him aside.

Ooooo, whatcha getting?”

“None of your business.” You deadpanned, walking around the garage with a grimace.

“Money?”

“No.”

“Clothes?”

“Nope.”

“A dog.”

“What, why would I get a dog?”

“I dunno. Wait, are you getting condoms?”

“Peter!” You shouted, arms flailing in the air as he chuckled. “Shut up, please.”

“I mean I would, if you told me what you’re doing.”

“Oh my god why are you so nosy?” You sighed, slumping against one of the cars.

“Being nosy isn’t a bad thing.”

“Ever heard of the saying curiosity killed the cat?”

“Yeah, and satisfaction brought it back.” He smirked triumphantly, while you sent him a dry smile. “Y’know I could just take you to wherever you need to go right?” You waved Peter off, but before you knew it he swept you up into his arms. “See, need anything from Athens?” He asked, while you stared at him in disbelief. Before you could demand him to take you back home you were standing in a forest. “Or from the Niagara Escarpment?”

“Pete–”

“How about Cairo–actually maybe not here.” Peter laughed, and before you knew it you were back at the mansion. “See I can be helpf–”

“PETER I JUST WANTED TO GO TO THE CONVENIENCE STORE!” You snapped, while Peter stared at you sheepishly.

“Oh.” He mumbled, swiftly taking you to your destination.

Peter stood by the door, watching as you piled copious amounts of candy onto the counter, smiling happily at the three bags full of treats you acquired. Peter ran you back to the house and you both walked back in silence to your rooms. You got to Peter’s room first, and he offered you an apology which you brushed off.

“I was being a bit of an ass, I should apologize.” You mumbled, swaying on your feet; bags crinkling in your hands.

“So, you gonna tell me why you need ten pounds of candy?” He asked while you shrugged.

“Period cravings.” Realizations dawned over Peter’s face as he let out a low laugh.

“Well uh do you need anything else?” He asked.nPeter was used to having to run around for Wanda when he lived with his family.

“Nope, I’m good. I’ve got food and a shit ton of movies to distract me from my uterus trying to kill me.” You and Peter both chuckled before you waved goodbye, heading off to your room.

“Wait,” Peter called, and was by your side in an instant. “How about some company as a distraction?” He suggested, watching as you slowly nodded.

“Fine by me. Just, don’t ask too many questions.”

anonymous asked:

1/2 There is the problem of (often straight white) girls fetishizing gay men/mlm.. and I am unsure if I am somehow being part of that group (though i'm definitely not straight). I have to admit that I do prefer e.g. reading about a gay couple/romance. I don't care about smut or anything, though I do find mlm erotic scenes usually a lot more tolerable. But I also think that is mainly because I am hella ace and possibly aro, and feel a lot more comfortable imagining people of another gender

2/2 loving each other. While I had relationships with men in the past I am currently feeling more drawn to women and have a hard time finding men attractive in any way. Stll, reading or watching movies, I feel safer watching mlm than anything that involves someone I could (gender wise) identify with. Am I perpetuating some toxic behaviour against mlm? I’m unsure what I shoud do in this situation.. :/ Hope this ask isn’t offensive or exclusive in any way.. Thanks for your help! 

I think you need to watch yourself, but I don’t think it’s exactly the same either. Personally when I enjoy M/M romance/smut I feel safe. I don’t think tehehe sex. I see two people, completely separate of me, enjoying something. Straight women don’t read m/m things because it makes them feel safe, they read it because it’s taboo. I think it’s important to watch yourself when you enjoy any media that is not for you, but I don’t at least personally think you are adding to the fetishization of gay men. Of course, I’m not a gay man so my say only counts as a general member of the community. But I think you are on the appreciation side on things, and not on the objectification side. But like an ally to anything, this isn’t a check once and done thing. You can enjoy the media but always be self aware enough to admit that you are capable of fault.

TLDR: I think you are fine, continue to be mindful
