one of my forever favorite movies

Ian: I don’t believe in luck. I do believe we’ve known each other since forever, though.

Sofi: Really?

Ian: Yeah. You know how? When the big bang happened, all the atoms in the universe, they were all smashed together into one little dot that exploded outward. So my atoms and your atoms were certainly together then, and, who knows, probably smashed together several times in the last 13.7 billion years. So my atoms have known your atoms and they’ve always known your atoms. My atoms have always loved your atoms.

I feel a bit bad... American Gods is one of my absolute favorite books, and as much as I've been looking forward to the series, I've decided to not watch it as a last-ditch effort to preserve my own "version" of it- I want to forever picture it as I first did, without any casting or effects besides that of my mind's own creation. Can I be forgiven?

I never watched the final Lord of the Rings movie, or any of the Hobbit films, because I realised that some of my headpictures had been eaten by the Peter Jackson film, and I treasured them too much. So of course you are forgiven.

I CAN FINALLY SLEEP TONIGHT KNOWING THAT THIS IS DONE.

To explain, “The Brave Little Toaster” is one of my all time favorite animated movies and I really respect it for what it manages to accomplish. Everything about this movie influences me and my work immensely; down to the great characters, heart-felt writing, and tHE TOP NOTCH SOUNDTRACK. 

I’ve been wanting to do a tribute for it since forever. So, here it is!

days ago I’d been doodling this scruffy nerd sign spinner when the opening credits to the bh6 series got out

and lemme tell you, once again i l i v e

i don’t see a lot of fall out boy-related asks, so i figured i’d make one myself! ask me anything, or reblog if you want asked these questions!

take this to your grave: what’s a secret you usually don’t tell people?

from under the cork tree: do you have a favorite childhood book?

infinity on high: who’s your favorite artist?

folie a deux: what’s something about yourself that you feel is underappreciated?

soul punk: do you like working solo or with others?

save rock and roll: if you had to pick one genre of music to listen to, what would it be?

american beauty/american psycho: what’s something that drives you crazy?

m a  n   i    a: have you ever had a panic attack?

grand theft autumn: (if you like boys) do you prefer rebel boys, or gentlemen?

dance, dance: what song makes you dance every time?

sugar, we’re going down: do you hunt? are you against hunting?

this ain’t a scene, it’s an arms race: do you hold grudges, or prefer to keep things civil?

disloyal order of water buffaloes: what are your favorite and least favorite fall out boy albums?

headfirst slide into cooperstown on a bad bet: have you lost any big bets?

my songs know what you did in the dark: have you ever set something on fire?

uma thurman: who’s your favorite actor?

drunk history: (if you drink) what kind of drunk are you?

young blood chronicles: do you like violent movies (action, etc), or do you like calmer ones (romance, Disney, etc.)?

Anyone who is considering seeing La La Land (2016, Damien Chazelle), please do it is a genius musical that is much more then just a musical. It’s a beautiful story about following your dreams and how not everything you want is just given to you. Anyone who loves film can really appreciate the thought that has gone into each shot, even the first scene stands out from most movies. A majority of it has such profound undertones of how not everything works out the way you want it to but you have to just go with it and grow up. Anyone who sees this movie can relate to some aspect of it. It takes you to a place where you forget everything around you when you watch it, its magical.The awards it has won it clearly deserves. The acting is amazing, everyone knows that Emma and Ryan are amazing actors and the casting for this film is perfect they work so well together and the chemistry between them is uncanny. I highly suggest you see it, it will forever have a place as one of my favorite movies.

get to know me: (2/5) favorite movies → pride and prejudice (2005)

“You must know… surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I’d scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on”

endless list of favorite movies so far in no particular order → Moulin Rouge!
      “Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months. And then, one not-so-very special day, I went to my typewriter, I sat down, and I wrote our story. A story about a time, a story about a place, a story about the people. But above all things, a story about love. A love that will live forever. The End.”

How Killing Stalking is similar to Natural Born Killers and why that should worry us,

NBK is by far one of my favorite movies. It’s a wonderful satire on our obsession with violence, and If you enjoy KS, I undoubtedly think you’ll like NBK.

Okay, so I was watching NBK for the first time in forever yesterday, and I noticed quite a few similarities between the characters Micky and Mallory and Sangwoo and Yoonbum. However, for this post, I’ll focus on comparing Mallory and Bum.

First, here’s a short summary of NBK:

The film tells the story of two victims of traumatic childhoods who became lovers and mass murderers, and are irresponsibly glorified by the mass media.

Although it is never explicated said, Mallory, in my opinion, suffers from Border line personality disorder just like Bum.

Here are some of her and Bum’s similarities 

. They’re both victims of sexual assault, being raped by a live in fatherly figure.

. They’re both “saved” by a psychotic killer

.They’re both ridiculously impulsive and need constant validation.

.They both go in between ‘I hate you, I love you,’ with their other halves.

Why should this worry us? Well, it’s implied that Mallory has never killed before Micky. However, when Micky swooshed in like a deranged prince charming and helps her kill both her parents, she’s overcame with the power and the validation, and becomes even more maniacal than Micky. Right after their first murder, they get married. Sound familiar?

Seeing the spoilers for Chapter 19, it seems my worries were valid. However, it shouldn’t be surprising. Bum has shown to have very low to zero empathy, which is common for people with BPD. Edit: To clarify, what I’m trying to say is that people with BPD may experience empathy inconsistently.(I’m going to write another post on this) From here on out, it’ll be a downward spiral for our not too pure Bum.

Ah, this was my very first Godzilla movie, which I got to see on a VHS copy I got for Christmas 1997, naturally under the Cosmic Monster moniker. Ever since, it’s been one of my favorites, as well as featuring my personal favorite Showa-era Godzilla design. Obviously, it forever cemented the foundation of me being the kaiju enthusiast I am today. :)

For this piece, I decided to try experimenting with the shading by using the airbrush tool (in GIMP, mind you), mostly because I would still be on MechaGodzilla if I were using the ink tool like I usually do (though there are some accented areas where I used it). It was a bit relaxing to loosen up a bit in doing so, and it never hurt to try new things.

For the shading itself, Godzilla was shaded with blue, since he has blue atomic breath; MechaGodzilla was shaded with red, since he had a red energy beam (well, when he was in disguise), and King Caesar was shaded with an orange/yellow to make him seem a bit more “golden”. Anguirus was done with blue (since he’s Godzilla’s pal), and the shisa statue was done with a dark gray. Also, Godzilla and MechaGodzilla have drop-shadows, red and blue respectively, in reference to their names in the Japanese text in the title sequence.

Anywho, this will be available at G-Fest XXIV, which is just around the corner!

Congratulations. You were able to repeat your accidental success. But you will need to know more than soup, if you are to survive in my kitchen, boy. Colette will be responsible for teaching you how we do things here.

hellafreckledhorses  asked:

so heh like,,,what is the last unicorn,,,for a long time i thought it was something made up that i heard in a tv show as a child but im learning tonight its,,,a real thing???

It is!!! 

The general premise is that a unicorn learns that she is supposedly the last unicorn in existence. She doesn’t believe that she could possibly be the last, and sets off on a quest to find the others. 

It’s an amazing book and a superb movie. The book was written in like, the 60′s I think? And the movie came out in the early 80s. It’s an interesting story, and it is mind-blowingly beautiful to watch. Plus, ya know, there are unicorns. And tons of other mystical creatures - harpies, magicians, talking skeletons who drink from empty chalices, a sorceress, an angry reclusive king, a tree with big tree tiddies (you think I’m joking, but I’m not joking), talking cats, a ghostly bull made of fire, dragons, everything you could want.

Seriously, I highly recommend it. It’s one of my favorite movies, and one of my favorite books. 

Unicorn: That cannot be. Why would I be the last? What do men know? Because they have seen no unicorns for a while does not mean that we have all vanished. We do not vanish. There has never been a time without unicorns. We live forever. We are as old as the sky, old as the moon. We can be hunted, trapped…. We can even be killed if we leave our forests, but we do not vanish. Am I truly the last?

whatevenno  asked:

Do you have any Adam/Belle fic recs?

I have like a billion favorite fics in this fandom and they are a mix between the original film and the new version SO I’M GONNA PUT BOTH! I’ll write the year in the description (but AUs kinda apply to both versions..as most stories do because of the OVERWHELMING similarities in the two movies) (I could have added so many more but this is like too long😂)

One-Shots!
Perchance to Dream (https://m.fanfiction.net/s/12422262/1/Perchance-to-Dream) (2017) (K+)
“Based on the 2017 movie, with a twist from the original French story. After coming to the castle, Belle meets someone in her dreams who seems oddly familiar…”

All Along (https://m.fanfiction.net/s/4130408/1/All-Along) (1991) (K)
“The spell has finally been broken. The Beast has some explaining to do, and Belle has a few secrets of her own to get out: she knew about the curse. Postmovie oneshot.” (I’m kinda obsessed with post-movie “woah what the hell just happened let’s talk this out” one-shots)

His Special One (https://archiveofourown.org/works/10558318) (2017) (G)
“The ballroom, it seemed, was consistently a place where his life would change forever. A post-curse fluff piece.” (This author has a ton of cute one shots this is just my favorite of theirs)

Impressions (https://archiveofourown.org/works/10627920) (1991) (G)
“Sometimes it’s the little things like getting ready in the morning that can be the hardest to get just right. Luckily the Beast has Cogsworth there to help out.” (This author is SO FREAKING GOOD at the 1991 Beast’s characterization like I swear. This is the fluffier of their stories also the newest but I love like all of their works)

And When We Touched (http://archiveofourown.org/works/10536363) (2017) (T)
“The five times the Beast had human contact for the first time in years, and the one time he had it as a human himself after the curse is broken. Based mostly off the 2017 movie.”

Of course I have to plug my own fic so….
I Love You Too, By The Way (http://archiveofourown.org/works/10504920) (2017) (G)
“short conversation between Belle and Adam between the kiss and the reunion with the servants. Because you know Adam would be excited more by Belle being in love with him than by the curse being broken. (Immediately follows the 2017 movie)”

Multi-Chapter!
Human Again (https://m.fanfiction.net/s/10085111/1/Human-Again) (1991) (T)
“A series of short one-shots written for the February 2014 prompt on Bittersweet & Strange. The prompt was: “Write a scene or story about the prince doing something he couldn’t do as a beast.”“

pouf-pouf (http://archiveofourown.org/works/10497057/chapters/23157834) (2017) (T)
(Ok this is technically just a two-shot but..)
”“Not for the first time, Belle found herself curious about the dusting of gold Plumette so often applied to the corner of her eyes and the swell of her cheeks. ‘Actually. I did have one question. How do you…’ She touched the side of her face to indicate where Plumette’s skin shimmered.
‘How do I do my makeup?’
'Yes.’
Plumette shook her head in amazement. 'There were really no other girls in Villeneuve?’”
In which Belle makes a friend and learns more about her fiance.“

The Anchor (http://archiveofourown.org/works/10514937/chapters/23206923) (2017) (T)
”“You’re alive,” she murmured softly, amazement smoothing the tone of her voice and filling the small void between them. Her eyes, brimming with unshed tears, locked on the loose waves of his shirt and the smooth planes of his chest.
“I’m…” he began, unsure of what to call himself. I’m me? I’m human? I’m…
"You’re alive,” she repeated, her tone insistent but her hands hesitant as they moved from his thin waist along the loose linen to his chest. The fabric bunched as her fingers pressed lightly across his torso, searching. “You died,” her voice cracked, her sorrow tangling desperately with her words, “but you’re alive.”
A series of vignettes following Belle and Prince Adam based on the live-action Beauty and the Beast. No set number of chapters or timeline. Please enjoy:)“

That Girl is Strange, No Question (http://archiveofourown.org/works/10381776/chapters/22928007) (2017) (T)
"He also remembers many times that Belle did this from before— he remembers her scribbling on bits of scrap paper in the library, getting ink on her face from her drafting pen over their own private dinners. She has nothing on her face now, even as his eyes drift up to catch every little detail. “I will allow you that disposition, my love,” he tells her as he brings up the knuckles of her right had so that he can press his lips against her skin. “Apart from one instance.”
“Oh?” Belle asks, eyebrows raising higher than Adam honestly thought they could go. “And which instance would that be, my Prince?”
“You were at the center of me,” he says. “From the very first moment you threw a snowball at my face.””

AU!
My Heart Will Go On (http://archiveofourown.org/works/10601274/chapters/23438256) (2017) (M)
“Engaged to be married to a woman who he does not love - a match enforced by his money grubbing father - the poised young aristocrat, Adam, is utterly miserable. On his first night aboard the RMS Titanic, he debates pitching himself over the edge of the ship and into the icy waters below, never to be seen or paraded around ever again.
He would have jumped, too, had he not been talked down by a shockingly beautiful girl who had somehow managed to smuggle herself onto the ship, hoping to see the world. Her name was Belle, and Adam quickly came to learn that she had been in France prior to boarding the Titanic, selling her sketches to make ends meet. A bizarre concept to the wealthy gentleman, which only made her, and her way of life, all the more alluring.” (I’m REALLY dreading the end to this story)

Mirrors (https://m.fanfiction.net/s/12347701/1/) (1991) (T)
“Everyone knows the Beast was selfish and unkind—which, of course, is exactly what a jealous enchantress would want the world to think. A retelling in which young Adam was an innocent victim caught up in his father’s past mistakes, and Belle a willing presence seeking to repay her own father’s debt. And with a vengeful witch on the loose, Gaston is the least of their worries.”

A Prince in Molyneaux (https://m.fanfiction.net/s/11020498/1/) (1991) (T)
“AU. Prince Adam is never cursed and grows into a spoiled, self-centered adult. When an attempt to flee his responsibilities backfires, he ends up stranded in a small provincial town. Can he find his way out of the town before anyone discovers who he really is? Or will his developing feelings for a beautiful but funny girl cause him to reconsider his plans entirely?”


Behind a Fair Façade (http://archiveofourown.org/works/7213906/chapters/16370746) (1991) (T)
“Belle and Adam are college roommates whose dislike soon melts into friendship - and maybe more. But Adam has a reason beyond Belle’s smile for pursuing her love, to do with his parents tragic death ten years ago. And Belle has her own motives for choosing a college over a hundred miles from her beloved father. Can their friends get them to fall in love?
Alternate summary: Modern AU where the curse is in the law, the Bimbettes have
characters, for some reason France has been replaced by Scotland, and everything is linked thematically.”

neither one prepared (https://archiveofourown.org/works/8144708) (1991/2017 author has both listed) (G)
“he’s so cute, she thinks to herself. it’s adorable to see him so eager to learn new things. she then goes back to her filing, heart warmed by her previous thoughts.
suddenly, though, everything is… different.
or, the one where the breaking of the spell is a bit more… casual.”(AU one-shot)

Notes: This chapter is mature and contains smut(and probably not the best-written smut at that, I tried guyssss).

signs as the most beautiful things i've experienced
  • aries: strangers became my best friends for a night
  • taurus: i ran through a field with people i'd known for a week, but felt like i'd known them forever
  • gemini: i spent the fourth of july camping in the mountains and saw hundreds of fireworks
  • cancer: all of my friends were together and genuinely happy
  • leo: i watched unconfident and scared girls grow into powerful women
  • virgo: the first time i fell in love with my favorite movie
  • libra: young kids accepting one another and being unaware of racism and sexism
  • scorpio: noticing how people act around the things that they truly admire and love
  • sagittarius: going on a school trip and bonding over my entire classes' hatred for the trip
  • capricorn: seeing people work hard for the things that they truly desire
  • aquarius: watching a friend who once followed the crowd finally embrace her individuality
  • pisces: watching someone's facial expressions while they talk about their favorite things

Whenever I’m asked about my favorite movie, I always point to Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. It has it all. Tim Burton’s glorious directing, beautiful, dark cinematography in which the only thing of bright color is the oftentimes cartoonish red of blood, revenge, gratuitous violence + gore, cannibalism, unrequited love, manipulation, vigilante and well-deserved justice, fun & macabre musical numbers one can really sing along to + a great opening title by Stephen Soundheim, and of course a singing Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and Alan Rickman. A movie literally cannot get more perfect in my eyes and thus will forever by my #1
