11) Beauty and the Beast: Noooooo oneeee’s hot like Gaston, a big shot like Gaston, no one makes men question their sexual thoughts like Gaston.
Its basically the same story you remember from the animated Disney movie, but now LeFou’s crush on Gaston is overt. And he dances with a boy at Belle and Adam’s wedding. I’d like to take a break from my usual nonsense and have moment of sincerity: I never thought I’d live to see the day that Disney had an openly gay character. EAT YOUR HEART OUT HOMOPHOBES.
Anyway, LeFou was honestly my favorite part of this movie. Not just because he’s openly gay, but because he’s really charasmatic and funny. In an interesting change from the original movie, LeFou starts to question Gaston’s actions towards the end of the movie and, well, I let you see the rest for yourself.
Pros: Funny, enjoyable, guy; and, I believe, the first openly gay character in a Disney movie!
Cons: he’s not a main character, so the story doesn’t really focus on him.
12) Skam: Evan and Isak, minute by minute.
Skam is a Norwegian drama about a bunch of high schoolers. In season 3, it gets a gay couple, Isak and Evan. Don’t skip the first two seasons though. 1) They’re very good, and 2) if you don’t watch them you won’t know what’s going on.
Pros: Skam is a very well written show with interesting characters. Evan and Isak’s relationship is so … so …
Their story arc is so sweet, and funny, and moving. I watched it and had to cling to my friend’s shoulder for dear life the entire time because its so romantic I couldn’t support myself. You’re going to cry, but I promise you, you’re going to cry tears of joy. It will cleanse your soul. It will make you think that maybe, just maybe, life can be good and beautiful.
13) The Lover: Boy teases the everloving out of his room mate. Hilarity ensues.
The Lover is a K-Drama about unmarried couples who are living together. Unmarried couples, and Takuya and Joon Jae. Joon Jae is a misanthrope who advertises for a foreign room mate so that they won’t speak Korean and he won’t have to talk to them. What gets is Takuya, a Japanese guy who is traveling the world. Takuya is determined to get Joon Jae to come out of his shell.
Pros: Its fucking hilarious. Takuya is the biggest tease on the face of the planet. He does something provocative, and Joon Jae just looks up at the sky like “Lord why are you testing me?” The show itself also represents a big step forward for Korea, where couples living together out of wedlock and homosexuality are somewhat taboo.
Cons: They are one of several couples, so the show doesn’t focus entirely on them.
IGET A LITTLE BIT GENGHIS KHAN —— DON’T WANT YOU TO GET IT ON WITH NOBODY ELSE BUT M E(oo-oo-oo) WITH NOBODY ELSE BUT MEE-E-E-E
Its James Bond baby, spy Shenanigans are happening, as per usual. Baddie of the moment Raoul Silva kidnaps 007 and ties him to a chair. So we’re off to an excellent start, and THEN Silva pops a button on Bond’s shirt and slowly pushes the fabric aside, running his fingers over the scar tissue and groaning sympathetically. “See what [M]’s done to you?” he says.
“Well,” says Bond, deadpan and unruffled, “she never tied me to a chair.”
“Her loss.” says Silva blithely, running his fingers across bond’s exposed chest appreciatively.
“Are you sure this is about M?” Bond asks, the corner of his mouth lifting in an almost imperceptible smirk.
“Its about her,” Silva says, “and you, and me.”
“You see, we are the last two rats. We can eat each other, hmm?” smiling tightly, “or eat everyone else.” he says, running his hand up Bond’s clavicle and under his chin.
“How you’re trying to remember your training now.” Silva says, his smile morphing into an open mouthed grin as he rubs his thumb over Bond’s throat, “What’s the regulation to cover this?”
“Well,” Silva purrs, running his hands down Bond’s spread thighs, “first time for everything, yes?”
Now it is Bond’s turn to smile.
“What makes you think this is my first time?”
Pros: TURN DOWN FOR WHAT?
Cons: Its only one scene, but to be honest that alone is worth the price of admission. I’m not a James Bond fan at all, but this? This is art.
Please reblog to spread the word!
Coming attractions I’m adding on mobile like haaa: Murdoch mysteries.
>>They kept me for five months in a room with no air. They tortured me. And I protected your secrets. I protected you. But they made me suffer. And suffer. And suffer. Until I realized… it was you who betrayed me. You betrayed me. So, I had only one thing left. My cyanide capsule in my back left molar. You remember, right? So I broke the tooth and… bit into the capsule. And it… It burned all my insides.<<
“And here today, I remember this, I think, from Tennyson: We are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are. One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
So, the holidays have been exhausting, but I thought it was time for another WEIRDLYYYYYYY ATTRACTIVVVEEEEEE VILLAAAAAAAAAAAAAINNNNS! [Cue cheesy game show music and prizes you don’t really want]
Today’s winner? You guessed it: It’s Javier Bardem as Raoul Silva in Skyfall!
I’ve been meaning to make this post for a long time and I decided it was finally time to do it, and no, it’s not just because I’ve been playing the Skyfall drinking game.*
If you haven’t seen Skyfall:
1. What the hell is wrong with you?
2. Here’s a brief rundown.
Skyfall is Daniel Craig’s third turn as James Bond, and it’s superb. Adele’s opening song is sublime. I just want to curl up into the movie and snuggle down until all my problems disappear just like all my friends.
Bond is on a mission to recollect a stolen hard drive containing information about MI6 agents. He gets shot and is goes missing. He’s presumed dead, preferring to stay hidden on an island, until he returns to MI6 following the reveal of numerous agents’ real identities, and an explosion destroys headquarters, killing several people, and putting the entire operation in jeopardy. The culprit appears to have a grudge against M, played again by the incomparable Dame Judi Dench.
He comes back and goes on the trail, gets loads of vagina, and meets up with (read: has shower sex with) the bad guy’s girlfriend, who takes Bond to the guy trying to kill M: the sly, slippery, sexy Raoul Silva, played by Javier Bardem.
And things get all kinds of sexy up in there.
It was like “oooohhhh…”
And I was like “Ahhhh…”
And my ovaries went BOOOM!!
Anyhow, he tries multiple times to kill M and there’s lots of gunfire and bombs and explosions and fucking awesome sequences and it all culminates at Bond’s family home in Scotland named, you guessed it, Skyfall Lodge.
So, why is Silva weirdly attractive?
Look at that smile. How can you deny that?
Silva is my favorite kind of villain. He’s so slick and clever, and he’s always one step ahead. Unshakable and relentless, he’s got one goal and he’s gonna go for it.
Silva’s so clever that he’s the only person with enough technological skill to rival Q. He can find anyone, he can do anything. He wanted an island and he took it.
That means he could take you anywhere on a date.
Wherever, as long as you’re there
He’s got the mad confidence that makes you love him. The first time you see him in the film, it’s halfway through the movie, and he walks the length of a warehouse floor, monologuing to Bond, who’s tied to a chair.
He then tries to fuck with Bond mentally by making it look like he’s going to fuck with Bond LITERALLY. See above.
Oh, Mr. Silva!
Silva’s the kind of guy that does whatever it takes, and takes a real joy in the work. He’d erase your student loans and buy you pretty things.
Now, does it make me sad that he tries to kill M repeatedly? Of course it does. I love M.
Don’t ask me why I love flamboyant men, but I love flamboyant men. And Silva is nothing if not a flamboyant man. He’s sassy and stylish.
Look at the way he throws that grenade! He doesn’t give a shit. PERF.
That’s literally perfect. Look at his fucking jacket. He’s chintzy in the most wonderful way, and I love it.
And with all his innuendos you know he thinks about taking you to bed.
In the end, his hair’s a little creepy, and his priorities are a little bit off, and he places blame in strange places, but he’s sexy, slippery, and charming. And you’d want him in your bed.
And he’d probably unzip you if you ask him nicely.
Ladies and gentlemen, Silva.
You. Me. My bed, the floor, wherever.
*My Skyfall drinking game: drink when the movie is bad-ass. Finish your drink every time Silva makes you ovulate. So, I pretty much drank steadily for two and a half hours. Awesome.
