Tomorrow is uncertain, who knows what it will bring. But one thing is for sure, love. With you, I have everything. And Happily Ever After, is the way these stories go. Used to think that’s what I wanted, but now I finally know. There’s no storm we can’t outrun. We will always find the sun. Leave the past and all it’s scars. A happy beginning now is ours.
Well, I was in such a state of shock, I completely blacked out. I can't remember a thing. It wasn't until later, when I was washing the blood off my hands, I even knew they were dead.
It’s joyous, romantic, energetic, heartbreaking, and just so damn fun!! Not only the best of the year, but the best of the past 2 years!!
2. Hell or High Water
An inspired neo western that deals with income inequality and family. It’s tense and darkly funny, with a great Texas atmosphere and lived in characters.
A smart alien ‘invasion’ movie that focuses on communication and unity instead of violence and bombast, underlined with an emotional and eye opening human story that demands multiple viewings.
4. The Edge of Seventeen
Hailee Steinfeld is Oscar worthy in this coming of age tale. It’s equally hilarious and heartbreaking, all the while being surprisingly relatable.
A deep character study full of empathy and raw emotions. Fantastic acting and even better direction.
6. Manchester by the Sea
A subtle, yet completely honest portrayal of dealing with grief. One of the best acting ensembles of year.
7. Captain America: Civil War
Kinetic action, real world themes, and focus on characters new and old make this one of the best entries in the MCU.
8. Captain Fantastic
Who knew living off the grid could be so interesting? A unique take on the family dramedy that shows the good and bad of both sides, and gets the family into some hysterical situations.
9. The Witch
A dark and atmospheric experience, with eerily authentic sense of dread. It’s a horror movie that’s actually horrific!
10. Swiss Army Man
The most unique and absurdly hilarious movie of the year. A movie that I feel is about normalizing openly loving relationships between two males, whether it’s romantic or not. Career performance from Radcliffe as well.
11. The Nice Guys
The best written action comedy in years. Amazing chemistry between Crowe and Gosling. Just so much fun and totally rewatchable.
12. Sing Street
An inspired story filled with great music, likeable characters that you can’t help but root for, and a great authentic 80s feel.
13. Hunt for the Wilder people
Another absurdist comedy from Taika Waititi featuring fantastic banter between the two unlikely leads and a subtlety touching story.
14. Nocturnal Animals
A dark and twisted sophomore effort from Tom Ford. Incredible ensemble all around and a story within a story that’s completely captivating.
Ryan Reynolds killed it in the role he was born to play. Very funny and a very faithful adaptation of the tone of the comics!
16. Star Trek Beyond
A very entertaining and character driven movie for the franchise’s 50th anniversary. Great new characters and great use of classic characters.
♣️ warnings: mentions of blood and violance; litteraly just one swear word (if you find more, let me know); i think there’s a mention of sex somewhere in there (not between the characters, just in general).
♦️ a/n: just a universe i came up with. modern-ish royal-ish!AU. please, enjoy!
You always wondered: would card games be fun, if your world wasn’t operating the way it was? Would it be fun to sit around the table with your friends, or maybe throw some pillows on the floor to give your gathering an eastern flavor? To have a game or two - or ten, if someone catches a gamble fever - along with a cheap drink? Or, perhaps, to deal some cards on a train and play with a stranger, who happened to have a ticket for a seat across from you. Beat them and lose to them, but then become friends, or maybe leave each other just as you were at the beginning - as strangers, except a little more familiar ones - with a twist in a form of a fond memory of someone who kept you company on the way to your destination.
And you thought that, maybe, there was a world like that: where playing cards provided a light distraction or kept you busy, if needed. Unfortunately, you weren’t lucky enough to be born into a fantasy like that. It was not your reality. It was not your world. In your world - those cards with pictures on them were far from fun and games (though, a little further from fun than from games). They were too busy defining people - their status, their fate, the roles they played.
