not going to name all the movies

Les Amis in Les Mis ‘34

I’ve been meaning to do this thing for a while. It’s kind of like @ellie-valsin‘s Every Ami Ever series but going at it the other way around. (Also I can’t do as many adaptations because I haven’t seen as many.) You get a different perspective when you look at them in context and secondly I thought it’d be worth it to talk about their depictions as a group. They do often have a sort of group identity in adaptations (and in the Brick too actually).

So the plan is to go through all the adaptations I’ve seen that have any named Amis other than Enjolras. Most of this will be subjective, but that’s the nature of these kinds of things.

(omg look at these nerds <3 they wrote their name on the wall)

Les Amis in Les Mis ‘34, the French movie trilogy thing:

These guys are adorable. They don’t really have very distinct personalities but they’re very passionate and excitable, they’re always laughing and they sing A LOT. (They might even give the musical Amis a run for their money in the singing front…) They’re also very obviously close and very affectionate with each other in that sort of 19th century way from before the masculinity police started hunting down men who dare to express their feelings openly.

Their military tactics could use some work though. Maybe don’t actually blow up your own barricade? And please, please, take some cover when you’re being shot at. It helps you stay alive.

Specific Amis: (In order of introduction)

Enjolras, Lesgle, Courfeyrac, Grantaire, Combeferre (mentioned), Feuilly (mentioned), Prouvaire

There’s a whole bunch of Amis in this (a lot more than nine) but only some of them get names and even fewer have significant lines or personalities. Combeferre and Feuilly are named while they’re off screen but you can kind of deduce which ones they are based on the seating when Enjolras addresses everyone by name. (Plus the guy I think is Combeferre sings the Caesar song, another clue.)

^ This Enjolras is very physically affectionate with everybody.

^ It took me a while to learn to tell Courf and Lesgle apart: they look SO similar to me.

^ Possibly!Combeferre singing (seen here clearly being played by the Tenth Doctor passing through 1930′s France.)

^ I think the one in the middle is Feuilly because Enjolras just said his name and still has his hand on his shoulder (because of course) but it’s impossible to tell really.

More about their personalities (those who have them) under the cut:

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? 

The Great Wall (2017)

hello everybody. Bonafide Chinese person, here, raised in a Chinese household with Chinese parents born on the mainland, to talk about This Movie

First things first, GO FUCKING SEE IT. This movie is a work of art and you’ll encourage more diversity in Hollywood by supporting a Chinese director and production team. SHOW people that we want diversity by making this movie a hit.

Now I’m going to tell you why you’re going to go see it, and hopefully I won’t get arrested. I don’t remember any of the names except that Matt Damon was Williams something or other. They aren’t really important.

  1. I’ll put your first worries at ease. Matt Damon does not save the day. The badass lady in the blue armor does. But Matt Damon does help in a major way. He is the main character, after all.
  2. There are a total of 10 white people in the movie. Only 3 play a substantial part, and only 2 survive.
  3. The movie states right at the beginning that it’s based off a legend. Stop being snarky about the wall keeping out the Mongols.
  4. No romance.
  5. Speaking of the lady in the blue, she’s commander of a squad of leaping warrior women. Holy fucking shit, am I right?

I am in no way a film critic, so I can’t comment on the movie’s general quality. But please please go see it. I can answer any questions in private you might have, just send me an ask. Also, do everybody a favor and hit reblog for me.

Clap and a half to Moana for:
Not having a single white character which is what is accurate to the setting
Having characters with realistic names
Having a platonic relationship between the two main opposite gendered characters
Passing the Bechdel test
Acknowledging other genders then male and female
LIKE ACTUALLY MAUI SAYS “hero of all. Not just men and women” AMAZING
Lin Manuel Miranda’s music
Moana not having to struggle to overcome people seeing her as weak because she’s female because everyone recognizes that as a nonissue
Everything being solved by nonviolent ways in the end of every problem

Anyways everyone should go see this movie! It’s soooo good!! :D

anonymous asked:

Hey! I'm a new Chris Evans fan. And I often come up to some phrases like "left boob", "meatball", "language" what's the meanning of those and what key things I need to know about him as a fan that i can't easily find on wiki or some source like that.

hii! 

so the left boob thing, he always grabs his left boob when he laughs. “the left boob grab” i was going to post gifs but someone made a compilation video of his left boob grabs.

Meatbeall comes from when he called himself a fucking meatball in this interview

Language” comes from a line in The Avengers Age of Ultron 

some other things…

Chris has an adorable dog named Dodger who he adopted while he was on set filming the movie Gifted

he is obsessed with the patriots…

and also space/nasa

and all things disney

he likes his beard

he is passionate and active about politics 

and supporting Christopher’s Haven which offers apartments for families of children with cancer 

he did a series of videos called “Getting Inside Chris Evans’ Head” where he spoke openly about anxiety 

he’s just pretty great

Glad to see that the YOI fandom moved on from the burning trainwreck that was the movie that shall not be named.

Lesson for the future? Don’t get involved at all because whatever terrible thing is going on, it probably isn’t what we think it is and we just end up getting swept up in the negative hype. Just stay calm, breathe, wait and think rationally until everything blows over. There’s a 90% chance that whatever drama was going on was no big deal after all, no matter how bad it looked at first.

The Last Unicorn and ASoIaF

I like to point this out every once in a while because I find it really curious and amusing.

One of George R.R. Martin’s favorite books is Peter S. Beagles “The Last Unicorn”. In the unicorn discovers that she is the last of her kind who resides in the magical forest and sets out to find where the others went. Along the way she is turned into a human girl and is named Lady Amalthea. Lots of stuff happens and with the help of her friends she is able to free all the unicorns that have been trapped in the sea by an evil man who uses a creature called the Red Bull to keep the unicorns prisoners.

Anyhow, in the 1982 cartoon based on the book (go watch the movie and read the book, it’s lovely and heartbreaking tale) the young Lady Amalthea looks an awful lot like a certain Princess we all know and love. 

I don’t know if George was influenced or not but a young girl with light blond hair, purple eye, the last of her kind…

The Lade  Amalthea.

Queen Daenerys

I don’t trust Harry. sometimes I think all these rumors are made with a purpose,to keep us confused about when the thing™ really going to happen; Iike, today we have this rumor but tomorrow night he’ll be like: “here’s a single, and a music video, here’s the album too, two movies, four nominations to academy awards and oh yeah my real name is ignacio.”

I have a lot of feels about Hidden Figures. Go watch it for the following reasons.

  • A movie about women of color as mathematicians, and an engineer.
  • All three women are mothers. With multiple children.
  • One of them is a single mom.
  • All three are successful women of color in a time where systemic oppression was the norm.
  • Supportive husbands.
  • Sick burns against systemic racism and sexism.
  • Their names are Katherine Goble Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson.

If you can remember a name like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart then you can remember them.

10/10 would recommend.

  • [before deciding on Team Vorpal Swords]
  • Aomine: All right people. Let's do this thing!
  • Aomine: Go Team Dynamite!
  • Kagami: But I thought we agreed we’d go by the name Team Super-Cool.
  • Murasakibara: As I recall, it was Team Awesome.
  • Kuroko: I voted for Team Alpha Wolf Squadron.
  • Aomine: All right, all right, all right!
  • Aomine: From henceforth, we shall be known as Team Alpha-Super-Awesome-Cool-Dynamite-Wolf-Squadron.
What do the Languages of India Sound Like?

India has a population of 1.2 billion people (just slightly behind the PRC) and with that comes some 400+ languages and multiple language families in one country. Obviously I’m not going to show every single language found in India. I’m going to focus on the 22 languages as defined in the Eight Schedule to the Indian constitution, so you can get a teeny-tiny sample of some of the languages of the second most populous nation on earth and how they sound.

All videos are from youtube. They should all play fine in the US, cannot guarantee that for anywhere else. However for pretty much all of these (except a few on the bottom) there are like a bajillion things like just type the language name into youtube and you’ll get like a good 50 movies showing up.

Borrowing of English words is very common in India so don’t be surprised if you’re listening to one and suddenly you there’s English for like two words and then back to whatever language it is.

Also there is a chance that some of the videos may not actually contain the language they’re supposed to contain. I do not speak any of these languages and I had to go off of what labels the video had as well as basic google searches if I could. If there is a mistake, I apologize. And if you catch a mistake let me know so I can get it fixed.

MY MOTHER JUST POINTED OUT THE BEST THING ABOUT CREDENCE BAREBONE AND MY HEART JUST CANT TAKE IT.

Okay so, we all know that Credence is the obsurus (I can’t remember how it’s spelled, forgive me) and that he was abused by Mary Lou.

Now, why didn’t he kill her while he was losing control? He could easily have done that.

My mother said, and I believe it too, that he felt sure around Mary Lou. He never liked her but he felt that he had somewhere to go.

Besides, after all the abuse, Credence didn’t have faith in himself, which is proved be his VERY FIRST WORDS in the movie which are “Do you think I’m a freak?” So, he accepted the abuse because he felt he deserved it.

However, he loved his sister. When Mary Lou found them with the wand, she saw Credence holding it and went to punish him, but the girl (who’s name I do not recall sadly) stepped in between and admitted it was hers. That’s when Credence killed Mary Lou.

WHEN HE SAW HES SISTER IN DANGER. In front of his eyes.
Mary Lou would abuse the young girl in front of his eyes and he couldn’t take it.
The obsurus killed Mary Lou when she attacked his sister.

I know this might be incomplete, add something if you want to. BUT CAN YOU FEEL MY HEART???
