one of the best scenes of this entire show

Blair Waldorf in every episode

Tatiana Maslany will be absolutely amazing in one scene, even more amazing than usual. In my opinion, it’ll be one of her best performances in the entire show. It’s so crazy how she’s able to give so many feelings in one scene, playing two different characters. This clone confrontation will be amazing, it’ll be so emotional and so powerful.

10 Best Bamon Moments in 2014, as voted by my followers

#1 I’m sure there are about a billion people you’d rather be here with…
        “Not exactly.”

The fact that 0.2 seconds of Regina, and Regina/Henry is what people are mostly posting about, is so impressive. The fact that Lana uttering only one word, ONE WORD, yet it causes the most emotional reactions and is easily the most beautiful scene in the entire episode, is impressive. Basically, Lana Parrilla carries this entire show on her shoulders and it’s about damn time more people appreciated her and her talent, and started appreciating this beautiful character.

The Most Disturbing Scene Ever on TV? You've Been Warned

Consider this a friendly little PSA about the series we have repeatedly touted as the best new show of the season: Starz'sOutlander.

You fans may have heard that the next episode will feature a moment from the books that is one of the most disturbing scenes of the entire book series.

That is true.

You might also think that if you read the books, you will be somewhat prepared.

That is….not true.

I’m not going to spoil anything for you. But I do feel the need to warn you that whatever you are expecting, prepare yourself for…More.

Not only is it something that has never really been portrayed in this way on television before. But it is raw. It’s detailed. It’s horrifying and it is, at times, even hard to watch. It’s also the kind of thing you cannot stop thinking about after the credits roll.

You may find yourself asking: Why? Why did it have to go down this way? Why were some of the choices made? Really just: Whyyyyyyy????????? The answer, dear friends, might come for you toward the end of the season one finale, when two characters (I won’t spill who, cause #spoilers) share what is perhaps the most beautifully scene ever to have aired on television. I found myself unable to breathe, uncontrollably sobbing, and experiencing a connection that felt more palpable than anything I’ve seen on TV in recent…oh, who am I kidding?, ever.The ugliest scene ever on TV. Followed by the most beautiful scene ever on TV.All within the span of an hour.

And that’s why, as we prepare for the worst, we also must pause and realize that Outlander deserves some very real praise for being, hands down, the bravest on TV. And, hey, how about some loads of Emmy nominations, while we’re at it.You want to talk about risk? You want to talk about challenge? You just wait.What happens in the next two episodes of Outlander is an unforgettable viewing experience that can only be compared to labor—painful, but the outcome will bring such hopefulness and light. You will have a physical reaction. I did.Buckle. Up.The penultimate episode of Outlander’s first season airs this Saturday on Starz.

Much like with Iain De Caestecker, Henstridge has proven herself time and time again as one of the strongest actors within the MCU, and her portrayal as Jemma Simmons in the bottle episode “4,722 Hours” was nothing short of perfection. It isn’t easy to pull off a bottle episode like “4,722 Hours”, especially when it’s meant to take place on a foreign planet, but with a mixture of great writing and Henstridge’s skilled performance? The episode manages to claim a spot as one of the best hours of television. (In fact, I’d rate it right up there with Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s “Hush” episode.) My hope is that, as the show continues, Henstridge is given more screen-time/more pivotal story-lines, because she (along with De Caestecker) are Marvel’s secret weapons on the small screen and right now, they’re not being utilized enough.

Best scene: Not so much a scene as an entire episode. “4,722 Hours” is a showcase of Henstridge’s talents. Every single second she spends on screen is captivating.

shinee will be making their first of five korean music show comebacks on “m!countdown” tonight! the show, which airs on mnet, will begin at roughly 6pm kst (note: this sometimes varies depending on the show. shinee will, more than likely, be the final performer on the show but there’s always a chance that there will be behind the scenes clips of them or interviews with them before that point so tuning in for the entire broadcast would be a good idea if you can! it’s usually best to turn on the stream ten minutes before the scheduled time, to be safe.) they will be performing: their title track, “view”, and “love sick”. for anyone not sure what the starting time would be in their time zone you can use this site to be sure! streams can be found here. (note: mnet streams the show directly from their official website for free (it’s one of the streams shared on the latter linked) but, in order to use it, you must either: a) register an account with mnet or b) use facebook to connect.)

mcs ► key (shinee), jungshin (cnblue), junior and bambam (got7)

setlist ► shinee, sunggyu (infinite), hyunseung (beast), hyosung (secret), elsie (t-ara), exid, history, bestie, myname, jang, hotshot, the ray, the ark, romeo, oh my girl, a.cian, n.flying, monsta x

Can I just say how constantly blown away I am by Marie Avgeropoulos and Bob Morley’s on screen chemistry? They each play siblings with complete and utter undying loyalty to one another and every fucking time they have a scene together they just work so damn well. Before the show they didn’t even know each other and from the very first episode they managed to be the most freakin precious brother and sister on TV and have the best familial relationship in the whole entire show. God those two just kill me.

As demanding as our jobs can be, there are some great moments of joy and grace in making a TV show, and I’ve been lucky to have several — walking on Mars, killing Vampires, working with tigers, Alexis Castle’s graduation, Castle and Beckett’s wedding vows… It’s tough to choose a favorite so I will tell you about my most recent…

When I wrote Beckett’s performance review scene in the Castle Season 7 finale, it was an immersion into Kate Beckett’s entire journey. The moments in the scene encompass seven seasons of near death experiences, ambitions, passion, and confidence. Stana Katic’s performance stands out as one of her best in a long list of stunners. Under attack at what she believes to be a performance review by her superiors, Beckett rises up against the people challenging her right to be a cop and embodies the character’s strength, conviction and personal truths. Every time I watch it, I’m moved by all of the actors performances, the way the scene came together and how it was elevated by the talented folks on our show. It has become for me and everyone who participated in creating it, one of those moments of grace.

Overlooked Disney Scenes: The Temptation of Tiana + The Death of Facilier. 

Part 1

Temptation of Tiana.

I think I can say without a doubt this is probably one of the best scenes within the entire film. And as far as villain traps go it’s one of the most cruel out there. This is a Man who can literally make your dreams happen right before your very eyes. And playback every insecurity you have about yourself to your face like it was a bonus featurette on a dvd. Could you imagine the type of things you would agree too when seeing all of that? But I am getting ahead of myself, this scene is shows us two things who Tiana is, and how deliciously evil Dr. Facilier is. 

Just give it a quick watch, and look at her face when she sees her restaurant. Or to be more precise the one she always dreamed she and her father would have. The animation of body language throughout this entire scene is just flawless. Just look at her expressions and reactions from thinking Naveen was in the room and then transitioning to seeing “The shadow man”. Or just seconds after look at how she reacts to those flashbacks of people putting her down. Her entire change in body language when she re hears the man say “A woman of your background”.  I have seen that face she is wearing when she thinks about that moment, because I have worn it several times. Working in customer service you get a lot of jerks who make stupid sly comments about your race (I need to learn english, son you’re not an american, etc etc), from people who are in a position of power over you simply due to circumstance. The best you can do is just take it when you hear it. But thinking about that moment later can eat you up, and for Tiana it clearly does. This is all emotional manipulation to the highest degree and Facilier thinks he is playing her like a puppet. Get her mad, and then hit her where it hurts the most. Her memories of her Father. 

That’s just what Facilier does too. All the while commenting on how her father worked his whole life to support his family only to end up with a busted dream. True to his twisted nature he delivers his last line that sends chills down my arm “Come on Tiana, you’re almost there”. That line was her entire mission statement. It was her I want song, the one that reminded her that all of her hard work was finally going to pay off. At this moment in the film she knows those men aren’t going to sell her the place anymore. She isn’t almost there, but with Facilier’s offer she just might be. And what does she do? She realizes what’s just as important as getting your ultimate dream? Having people you can share it all with whether that’s family, friends, or even romantically. “Daddy never did get what he wanted, but he had what he needed”. That’s the whole point to this film, as Mama Odie puts it “What you want and you what you need are 2 different things”.  Having a dream is important, having people who you can share that with is even more important.  Because what good is a giant restaurant when you have no one to invite to eat? Tiana realizes just that and despite the massive amount of manipulation she goes through in this scene. She throws her chance of being human and of getting her dream all away because it was the right thing to do.  It wasn’t the easy way, but it was the right way.

And that is essentially who Tiana is. She takes no shortcuts, she doesn’t cheat to get ahead, she does what is right because integrity is important to her. She is a role model through and through and really is one of Disney’s best.

Okay I told myself that I wasn’t going to make this post but I’m totally going to make this post.

I Have A Huge Problem With Finding Dory

I’ve had a huge problem in the past with Finding Nemo being praised as amazing disability representation. You can see more of my posts here: marauders4evr.tumblr.com/tagged/finding-nemo

Now, a few of those posts have bashed Nemo because I used to hate the fact that Disney’s “best” example of disability representation is a fish. But I’ve since realized that Nemo himself is actually a pretty good example of representation. I still dislike the fact that he’s a fish but if Zootopia can show commentary on racism, I suppose we can have a fish show commentary on how the disabled are perceived as weak. So, I’ve gotten a lot better at accepting Nemo.

I still hate Dory.

And I always have.

Because Dory’s disability is reduced to nothing more than comic relief, except for one small scene at the end of Finding Nemo. Throughout the entire movie, we’re laughing at this disabled character. We’re laughing at her. The entire movie paints memory loss as a thing to joke about. The only two scenes where Dory is shown in a serious light is the scene where she tells Marlin that he can’t not let anything happen to Nemo and the scene where she tries to stay with Marlin. That’s it. And then there’s a dozen jokes after that. The jokes aren’t as bad as say, 50 First Dates, but they’re still pretty bad. Unlike a character like Toph who makes jokes about her own disability, allowing the audience to laugh with her, all of the jokes are at Dory’s expense, causing the audience to laugh at her. The audience is laughing at the disabled character over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

Now, from the spoilers that I’ve seen, Finding Dory tries going in the opposite direction. Finding Dory has her parents telling Marlin that they needed to let Dory go out on her own and that even though she has setbacks, her life is just as amazing as everyone else’s.

That’s great!

Except no, no, it isn’t.

Because you can’t spend 90% of the time making this character the comic relief that the audience laughs at and makes fun of and then spend the last 10% hammering in this really nice little moral about how people need to treat people with disabilities.

It doesn’t work like that.

It’s like if South Park, after spending seventeen seasons treating Mx. Garrison’s sexuality and gender identity as comic relief, ended up making an episode where they give an impassioned speech about gay rights, causing the show to be praised for its representation.

You can’t have it both ways.

And neither can Disney/Ellen.

Finding Dory isn’t the worst example of disability representation in theaters right now(*Cough* Me Before You *Cough*) but it’s nowhere near deserving of the amount of praise that it’s getting. Because Disney treated mental illnesses and memory loss as a huge joke in Finding Nemo. And they don’t deserve to be praised for suddenly changing tactics and creating a fortune-cookie moral.

In 2005, Robert Pattinson was named one of the “Stars of Tomorrow,” by Screen International magazine. The top pic shows him with his best friend, Tom Sturridge, Brit pack member Eddie Redmayne and Nina Sosany. It’s a newly released behind the scenes shot. The bottom pic is the one that ran in the magazine, and shows the entire group of future stars, which included Carey Mulligan, Natalie Tena, David Oyelowo, Natalie Dormer, and musician friend Johnny Flynn. 

For people who say Rob has changed, I will point out that he’s still good friends with the people in this photo that he was friends with back then, and I swear, he’s still wearing the same clothes, Everyone grows and evolves, but he seems to fundamentally be the same person he always was, very grounded and down to earth.

Photo id: The blonde standing on the far left is Rob’s musician/actor friend Johnny Flynn, and seated in front of him is Carey Mulligan and in the back next to Carey is Dominic Cooper. In front of Cooper is David Oyelowo.  In front of Carey on the far left is Rob’s co-star from Bel Ami, Natalie Tena. One of Rob’s favorite TV shows is Game of Thrones, and the blonde, standing in the middle is Natalie Dormer. Full photo line up:
