Noah and Gregory, respectively. They smell like old money. Noah Fairchild is the captain of the Willow Grove football team. He has a fixation for horror. Stephen King. Lovecraft. That kinda stuff. He also likes pretentious artsy films. Directing one of his own, really. Greg “I-Swear-To-God-I’ll-Leave-This-Stupid-Town-Someday” Hawkins,a little less spoiled than Noah, but forever fated to be his henchman. 

I just got back from seeing Logan again, it was even more emotionally traumatic the second time, and there was something that really stuck out to me…

It’s just how many good people that are in this setting.

Caliban, Gabriella Lopez, the Munson family, the Doctor that tries to offer Logan his help, the person on the radio that confirms the escaped mutant childrens’ asylum. Almost everyone that Logan, Laura, and Charles meet on their journey is a decent person.

I really like that.

With a film such as this, it could have been so easy to have it be mired in cynicism reflected by a world of awful people. But it’s not.

One of the central themes of this story is family (another thing that stood out to me here is how Patrick Stewart articulates his performance at the start of the film with such elation and excitement that the mutant he’s found is Logan’s daughter - that he’s able to give Logan this new shot at having hope again) and that’s not just shown on a personal level with Logan/Laura/Charles, but on a broader scale with the people they encounter along the way.

It’s often messy, and the encounter with the Munson family ends in tragedy, but the overall point of this film’s portrayal of that is that there’s always good, decent people out there willing to lend a hand to a stranger.

power rangers (2017) was loads of fun! i think being a former power rangers stan as a child may have boosted my enjoyment of the film but i really liked it!! seeing the rangers riding in their zords while the original power rangers theme played in the background was truly a religious experience for me

Went to see Beauty and the Beast and Power Rangers today with former crush and friends AND IT WAS AMAZING.

Oh god, I love Beauty and the Beast AND THE POWER RANGERS MOVIE WAS SO GOOD YOU GOTTA WATCH IT MAN.

man watching movies has never been this fun before, until I went with my friends. I need to do this more often.

Welp, gonna go listen to the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack now, because fucking Evermore.

EDIT: I thought more about it, and I just REALLY love Billy in the Power Rangers movie (whenever he did his little clap, I clapped too because I just couldn’t help it) and also, best part about it while I was watching the movie is that throughout it, I was hearing someone clapping and it took me some time, but it turned out the clapping was coming from a little boy who was sitting by us and JUST…

it was SO cute, like it was offputting at first because I didn’t know where it was coming from, but after I discovered the source, it made a lot of sense. The clapping certainly happened whenever I started shaking and felt like flapping because the movie was JUST SO GREAT (he was likely stimming). And what was even better is that his clapping caused the rest of the audience to clap a few times with him.

Just, it was a great movie experience.

film meme: (1/10) favourite movies 

The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) – Good things about Tom Ripley? That could take me some time. Tom is talented. Tom is tender. Tom is beautiful. Tom is- Tom is a mystery. Tom is not a nobody. Tom has secrets he doesn’t want to tell me and I wish he would. Tom has nightmares. That’s not a good thing. Tom has someone to love him. That is a good thing. Tom is crushing me. Tom is crushing me. Tom. Tom, you’re crush….
