such an emotional moment

Kong: Skull Island Soundtrack Available March 3

You can pre-order on iTunes now!


WaterTower Music today announced the March 3 release of the soundtrack to Kong: Skull Island – the Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures and Tencent Pictures film that reimagines the origins of one of the most powerful monster myths of all time. Directed by Jordan Vogt Roberts, the film will be released worldwide in 2D, 3D in select theatres, and IMAX beginning March 10, 2017.

Composer Henry Jackman (X-Men: First Class; Captain America: The Winter Soldier; Captain America: Civil War; the Kick-Ass films) created the film’s lush symphonic score. His music highlights Kong’s emotional connection with some of the characters by giving specific moments in the score what he says is “a bit of humanity and sensitivity. The great thing about a monster movie is that it opens the door to use the symphony orchestra in its most sumptuous way.” Jackman continues, “(Director) Jordan Vogt-Roberts was happy to celebrate the gravity and history that comes with a full orchestra, but we also explored less traditional elements. That’s a field day for a composer.”

In a nod to the film’s ‘70s period setting, Jackman infused the score with the bold, classic tones of the decade’s psychedelic guitars.

The music, which serves to both heighten the film’s emotion and underscore the action, was one of the final creative elements to fall into place during post-production. It was the culmination of a massive undertaking that had taken the production to three continents. Throughout the process, everyone involved in the film was intent on being respectful of Kong’s history, even while crafting a next-generation iteration of the mythic beast.

Kong: Skull Island tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.

The film stars Tom Hiddleston (“The Avengers,” “Thor: The Dark World”), Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson (“Pulp Fiction,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron”), John Goodman (“Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “Argo”), Oscar winner Brie Larson (“Room,” “Trainwreck”), Jing Tian (“Police Story: Lockdown”), Toby Kebbell (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”), John Ortiz (“Steve Jobs”), Corey Hawkins (“Straight Outta Compton”), Jason Mitchell (“Straight Outta Compton”), Shea Whigham (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Thomas Mann (“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl”), with Terry Notary (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”) and Oscar nominee John C. Reilly (“Chicago,” “Guardians of the Galaxy).

Vogt-Roberts directed the film from a screenplay by Dan Gilroy and Max Borenstein and Derek Connolly, story by John Gatins. Kong: Skull Island is produced by Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni and Alex Garcia, with Eric McLeod and Edward Cheng serving as executive producers.

It’s not about fake versus real

Have you ever been baffled by a conversation with a friend or relative who has utterly bought into some strange myth, or unfounded rumor, or some ugly bit of political propaganda? How do we react in those moments?

Oh, we could talk about deciding what the truth is ahead of time, and then only listening to news sources or people who agree with you, and we could talk about people listening to “what their itching ears want to hear”, and we could condemn all that, but I suspect we’re all a little guilty of selectively reinforcing our current beliefs.

I once heard a famous theologian say that he would only publicly debate someone if they had a PhD. I thought that was odd, since, well, if you’re debating a dumber person, it can only make you look smarter by contrast. However, he explained that debates that aren’t academic in nature, always devolve into emotional moments.

He was saying that he’d be debating someone about some point of theology, when he’d suddenly realize that this person held their point of view based on some childhood trauma, or dysfunctional parenting, or personal hangup, not on any version of the available facts.

Winning a point in this kind of debate would only make a hurting person hurt more, and force them into defending their own positions in deeper and more irrational ways. After all, if a position is about your insecurities and dysfunctions, you wouldn’t see this as a debate, you’d see this is a personal attack.

A lot of what we believe is based on what we’ve been through. And we can’t set people free until we speak to their past.

How often do we define ourselves by what we hate? How much of social media or our personal conversations are about things we hate? All too much of that comes from fear. And one cannot be debated out of fear. Fear can only be overcome by love.

We cling to fear desperately. We feel it makes us safe. We feel it makes us smart. Even as those fears twist reality into a bizarre cartoon of real life, driving us to make more and more irrational, and ugly, and selfish decisions, even as we slowly alienate everyone around us.

My prayer is that God would give me compassion and patience for people who are angry and afraid. That He would help me understand how ugly behavior almost always comes from a deeper place. That I wouldn’t just preach “do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Rom12:21), but that I would be willing to personally live it out.

anonymous asked:

Why Roxas transfered his feelings and experiences in DDD to Sora if he was already inside him in KH2? Also, why did he unite with Sora twice in KH2 (one at the beginning in the mansion and one at TWTNW)?

First time was a purely physical merge. Second time was the, “Alright, I accept this now. I’m not just doing this because I have to. I actively, enthusiastically support you now” mental merge. Third time, in Dream Drop Distance, was something even deeper than that.

Even after they merged for the final time in Kingdom Hearts II, Sora didn’t actually receive any of Roxas’ feelings or memories.

He would sometimes feel echoes of Roxas’ feelings in especially overwhelming emotional moments, like when he cried when he said good-bye to Hayner, Pence, Olette, and Twilight Town.

But even when that happened, he wouldn’t actually know what was so sad about it or why he was crying. He couldn’t see Roxas’ memories.

He just got the overflowing aftermath.

But this time, this is Roxas going, “Alright, I’m bringing down the wall between us. See what I saw. Feel what I felt. Walk through my experiences directly.“

Ahh ok so I dunno if ya wanna hear it but I had some really cute Klance dream 💕 I don't remember much but basically, Keith was captured and the squad had to save him. He was held in a galran factory on some nice planet w/ grassy plains. I guess he was freed by Allura(?) cuz Lance was too worried and dehydrated. Anyway, then there was this scene where Keith and Lance, both looking exhausted but still very happy and radiant, stood opposite each other, smiling, in this beautiful scenery. (1/2)

Suddenly Keith kneeled down in front of Lance and he did the same thing right after. They were holdin hands and sensitively touchin each other on the cheeks. Like it was literally such an emotional touching moment and u could literaly feel their love for each other?? Later they were just kneeling there, smiling w/ such fond loving looks. Then Lance suddenly said that he wants to spend the rest of his life with Keith and they kissed and just..I woke up feeling all warm in heart…i’m cry ❤ (2/2)

Hi Natalie, will you be disappointed if we don't see Clarke emotional during/ after she she's that roan has Bellamy or after getting him back? I will be

Hi anon!

Well, that very much depends on the content of the episode.

I can imagine scenarios where I might be disappointed, or I might call foul.

But, at the same time, I can imagine plenty of scenarios where I’d be okay with it.

We have no idea how this episode will end, and what the hostage situation will look like at the end. Perhaps Clarke negotiates Bellamy’s freedom really early in the episode, and so we don’t get the big emotional moment because they immediately put their heads together to solve the problem (not necessarily likely, but it could happen). Or perhaps Bellamy is still a hostage by the end of the episode, or his fate is unknown to Clarke, in which case she is still in ‘mission’ mode and has not yet switched to allowing herself to accept the danger he is in. In that scenario, which is more likely, I wouldn’t mind not seeing Clarke emotional.

In all honesty, I don’t expect any big emotional Bellarke moments in this weeks episode. I think there will be so much going on, and that Bellarke will spend most - if not all - of the episode apart. I think we will get small moments, such as when Clarke sees Bellamy with the army, or moments where they aren’t together but are still connected through their words and actions.

That’s not the end of the world, anon. Perhaps the emotional fallout of 4x05 comes in 4x06. Or perhaps the writers made the decision to not have a big moment because they don’t think it’s necessary, because we all know that Bellarke are devoted to each other at this point.

What I’m getting at, I guess, is that we shouldn’t wrap ourselves up in headcanons for coming episodes - or in teaser tweets from screeners. Just wait, and just watch. Maybe it will be a great Bellarke episode. Maybe it won’t have much Bellarke. It doesn’t matter, because Bellarke are wonderful and will continue to be wonderful whether it’s this week, or in two weeks, or whenever.

Other’s Opinion Are Less Important Than My Personal Guidance System… You did not intend to use the opinions of your parents to measure against your beliefs, desires, or actions in order to determine the appropriateness of them. Instead, you knew (and still remembered, long after you were born) that it was the relationship between the opinion (or knowledge) of the Source within you and your current thoughts, in any moment, that would offer you perfect guidance in the form of emotions. You did not intend to replace your Emotional Guidance System with the opinions of your parents even if they were in harmony with their Emotional Guidance System in the moment of their trying to guide you. It was much more important to you to recognize the existence of your own Guidance System, and to utilize it, than to be deemed correct by, or to find approval from, others.

lmao are people on tumblr REALLY complaining about how the la la land crew seemed “livid” and upset during last nights shitshow? of course they were upset I mean if I was in their place I’d start fucking crying in that stage. It was awful and no human being would feel super happy and amazing in that situation. They thought they won and had to deal with the disappointment all while being on live tv and having to look like they were fine. Stop treating people like they are not entitled to feel emotions in such a difficult moment ugh have some empathy?? I’m very very happy for the crew of moonlight but i wish their moment wasn’t tainted like this.

me last night: i feel so alone…. no one loves me…. wahh boo hoo

me today: i love MUD i don’t need LOVE or AFFECTION all i need is the soil that nourishes all life on this earth *listens to girls just want to have fun on loop while lying in the dirt*


And now every time I reach for that tether, I know there’s no one on the other end, and I feel like I’m falling into nothingness. [x]
