ok so in the timeless classic Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement it is declared that mia can’t be queen without a husband, but the law as it is stated is “Genovia shall have no queen lest she be bound in matrimony” and in fact makes no mention of a husband and all im saying is that mia really should have married lilly and they should have been double queens together

something i appreciate abt movies is that one of its elemental goals is to provide the viewer emotional resolution by the end of its 120 min, versus television, by the nature of its format, is mostly based upon uncertainty, tension, egging you on to watch the next episode or season. resolution is more supplementary to tv- its just more about the exploration instead. theres obviously value in both formats but i feel like film’s promise of satisfaction and completion is underrated

When I say “love,” the sound comes out of my mouth and it hits the other person’s ear, travels through this Byzantine conduit in their brain, you know, through their memories of love or lack of love, and they register what I’m saying and they say yes, they understand. But how do I know they understand? Because words are inert. They’re just symbols. They’re dead, you know? And so much of our experience is intangible. So much of what we perceive cannot be expressed. It’s unspeakable. And yet, you know, when we communicate with one another, and we feel that we’ve connected, and we think that we’re understood, I think we have a feeling of almost spiritual communion. And that feeling might be transient, but I think it’s what we live for.

idk what everyone is up to this weekend but please please please, if you have time or the inclination or anything, please go see the movie Colossal with Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis. It uses the whole godzilla-esque typical monster story as a very effective allegory/vehicle for a story about alcoholism, abusive and destructive relationships and control issues. I would put a tentative trigger warning on it for people who have been in abusive relationships because I found the portrayal to be somewhat confronting but ultimately the film is just? so good? it’s a bit odd and the acting is actually excellent and the storytelling and the message and the way it portrays the relationship is worth seeing 

i havent gushed about this yet and i need to

Te’ka being Te’fiti is just such fucking perfect writing and not just b/c of plot resolution

because volcanos are always thought of erratic, destructive, evil etc but more importantly they literally build the foundation of islands, volcanic soil lets everything thrive …. so te’fiti without her heart is all the destruction and chaos of lava and volcanos but with her heart she harness it into bring life into this worldd
