It took me way too long to see this, but I’m glad I did.

As a technical masterpiece, Ingmar Bergman creates another cinematic genius, among many others. I’ve only seen The Seventh Seal before this, but it was emotionally wonderful.

Here’s the basic story: Bergman wrote and directed, where a young nurse named Alama is assigned to take care of an actress, Elisabet, who has suddenly become mute, even though she is seemingly healthy. Only one of them slowly unravels…

And it’s an Ingmar Bergman film. Can’t wait to watch The Hour of the Wolf, Wild Strawberries, The Passion of Anna, Through a Glass Darkly, etc. 

Really, really excellent. Spam on it’s way.

POSSESSION (trailer)

anonymous asked:

You're not even an asshole or anything you're just inexperienced and immature and it's sad to see how ignorant you are. Like you're not threatening you just make me giggle that people can be so ignorant and homophobic

This just in: I am a homophobe. Guess I need to break up with my boyfriend. Cant date a boy and be a boy das gay. And obviously I’m not queer at all you know

whoosh there goes my bi card

my essence of aro/ace is leaking from the bottom of my feet

I suddenly can’t even remember what the words non binary and genderequeer mean much less be them

and the neon sign on my forehead that tells strangers that I am “not cis” so that they can gawk at me and call me “it” seems to be out of order

I am cured, i am free

Shot with a surreal drama by Ludo De Santis, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s Queen of Jeans have shared a new video for their smoke-filled, distortion-heavy and relentlessly-melodic track “Rollerdyke”. You’ll find it on the self-titled, six-song EP they released digitally earlier this year. They’ve just unveiled the vinyl versions, and you can buy pink and baby-blue split-side vinyl, pink with baby-blue splatter vinyl or a limited number of test pressings on black vinyl from Third Uncle Records now.

#TwinPeaks is an #American #televisionserial #drama created by #MarkFrost and #DavidLynch. It follows an investigation headed by FBI Special Agent #DaleCooper (#KyleMacLachlan) into the murder of homecoming queen #LauraPalmer (#SherylLee) in the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington.

Twin Peaks explores the gulf between the veneer of #smalltown respectability and the #seedier life beneath. As the series progresses, the #innerdarkness of characters who initially appeared innocent is revealed, and they are seen to lead #doublelives. Its unsettling tone and #supernatural features are consistent with #horror films, but its #campy, #melodramatic portrayal of #quirky characters engaged in dubious activities parodies of American soap operas. Like much of Lynch’s work, the show represents an earnest moral inquiry distinguished by #offbeat humor and #surrealism.

Twin Peaks became one of the top-ratedshows of #1990 and was an international #criticalsuccess. It captured a #cultfollowing and has been referenced in television shows, commercials, comic books, video games, films and songs. The series was followed by a #1992 feature #film, Twin Peaks: #FireWalkwithMe, which serves as both a prequel and an epilogue to the television series.

“Once Upon a Time” is an enchanting tale of modern day fairytale characters and the endless magical shenanigans they get up to in the small town of Storybrooke. Fans instantly flocked to this surreal family drama full of spells, sword fights and heroes who always come out on top.

All in all, the show has done an amazing job of keeping itself afloat. Five years into its lifespan, it still has devoted fans and ratings that have kept it in the coveted Sunday evening spot. But as all shows do, “Once Upon a Time” has aged, and its laugh lines are beginning to show.

In the hopes of revitalizing our favorite fairytale drama, Zap2it has 12 easy steps to recover some of the magic of earlier seasons.

Follow through on the LGBTQ romance

Before the start of Season 5, showrunners Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz promised viewers the show would explore a same-sex romance, but we’re 17 episodes in, and we have yet to see evidence of this supposed LGBTQ plot. Whichever character is set to inherit this story arc, it would be nice to see “Once Upon a Time” deliver on this promise sooner rather than later.

More solo Henry adventures

Henry (Jared Gilmore) has become a teenager before our very eyes, and it’s sometimes hard to remember that he has a life outside the Charming adventures. Henry really got his time to shine as the Author this year, and we only hope we get to see more of his solo missions and adventures soon. Perhaps Season 6 can make him the hero of the story instead of his moms?

Give Hook & Emma a rest

We love “Captain Swan” as much as the next rabid fan, but “Once Upon a Time” could benefit from giving these two some breathing room. Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Emma’s (Jennifer Morrison) relationship has dominated the narrative for a while now, and it might be nice to see them take a bit of a backseat to give fans some variety. Highlighting other romances like Belle (Emilie de Ravin) & Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) or Regina (Lana Parrilla) & Robin (Sean Maguire) may just turn out to be a breath of fresh air.

Bring beloved original characters back

This might be a tall order, since the actors behind Dr. Whale (David Anders), Neal (Michael Raymond-James), Graham (Jamie Dornan) and other favorites have all moved on to bigger and better projects, but it would still be great to get these characters back on a semi-regular basis. The early years had some seriously awesome side stories.

When in doubt, forgo CGI

Look, the special effects that “Once Upon a Time” has been able to incorporate are sometimes seriously impressive. Other times… well let’s just say less is more in certain circumstances. If you can’t make it look believable, CGI can sometimes do more damage than good.

More focus on Emma & Henry

One of the best parts of earlier seasons was the relationship between Henry and his birth mother. Operation Cobra will always hold a special place in our hearts, but these days Emma has a million things to handle and somehow none of them seem to involve Henry. Let’s get some mother/son bonding going on again.

No more Cora, please

We may worship the ground Barbara Hershey walks on, but Cora has been brought back to life — in some way or another — far too many times to count, and it’s getting a little ridiculous. When our heroes leave the Underworld behind, we can only hope they leave Cora with it.

More Emma & Regina bonding

Ever since Regina became one of the good guys, her co-parenting endeavors with Emma has been one of the best parts of the show. Their bizarre friendship is always a kick, and those rare moments where they have open and honest heart-to-hearts get us every single time. Keep it up, “Once Upon a Time,” this relationship is flourishing perfectly!

Highlight the cast you’ve got

An ensemble cast is an amazing thing, and “Once Upon a Time” has got one of the best currently on TV. Instead of adding temporary characters every year, why not spend some time with the ones you’ve already got? Maybe even take a page out of the “Captain America: Civil War” playbook and make the conflict between all the heroes instead of the newest villain on the block.

Stay away from blurred lines

In a world where magic often bends the rules of right and wrong, its easy to blur the lines between what is a juicy new storyline and what is going to get real problematic real fast. “Once Upon a Time” has gotten into trouble with fans a few times on the issue of consent, so avoiding any and all storylines that might cross that line would be a good idea.

Ditch the formula

“Once Upon a Time” has fallen into a bit of a predictable rut by splitting each season up into two story arcs. It’s almost begun to feel like each half of the season is a self-contained story, which is great for keeping viewers engaged in the moment, but kind of a buzzkill in the long run. A new story that ditches the mid-season split might be a nice change.

Go easy on new Disney characters

We understand Disney is a virtual treasure trove of potential princesses, heroes and villains whose stories would make excellent additions to the Storybrooke Story Book. However, let’s be a bit more selective than “what’s hitting it big at the box office this year” when picking our newest guest stars. Looking at you, Elsa.

The house was too cold as Shiloh carefully walked across the worn wooden floor. She listened to the creaking sounds echoing through what she remembered as the front living room. A heaviness she hadn’t been expecting filled her chest as took everything in. Wall paper was starting to peel down the walls and the curtains were not pulled all the way across the large bay windows.

She walked across to…
