the actually not that bad movie

You’d think the way (some) fans are reacting that there had never been reference to Nazi’s in any show or movie ever.

Here’s my thing, in this climate anything that shows Nazi’s as the bad guys is a freaking good thing, because they are even if people in power support them. Not only are we seeing Nazi’s as bad, we will see a group of people rebel against them and fight back. This is actually damned positive people.

@wtatennisfreak-blog replied to your post “No amount of “N*zi Oliver might actually be good” is going to change…”

Jesus, get off the cross. Shindlers List never wouldn’t been made if it were up to people like you. They’re villains. They’re depicted as such.

I’m glad you understand Nazi = Bad 

I’m sorry you don’t grasp the concept that portraying the Nazis as winning the war and also using beloved comic characters to do as such is also bad. 

There’s a difference between what the crossover is doing and what Hollywood does with movies like Schindler’s List. 

“the babadook is gay” as a meme was funny because it had an actual precipitating event (being mistakenly placed in the LGBT section of Netflix). people extracted meaning from that (the babadook represents mental illness in LGBT teens) and… sure, whatever, do what you want with your time

but please for the love of holy god don’t blindly apply that meme to pennywise. pennywise is a child predator in a horror novel with explicit themes of homophobia and pedophilia. both of which are stigmas applied to LGBT people that we are STILL actively fighting

sometimes when memes die they should stay dead!!!

So I watched the Lego Batman Movie recently and I have to say that I may have found a newfound love for the Joker. I have to blame @mooplethemarsh for this doodle. 

So I sent Andy Muschietti an instagram message asking for an IT netflix spin-off and he actually answered me

Ok so yesterday my friend and I were rambling on how bad we wanted an IT spin off, like a Losers Club series, because we need to see more of the characters played by this actors who we all love so much.

And eventually the conversation ended up with me signing a change.org petition for the spin-off, and sending a letter to netflix and to Andy. Little did i know i would wake up the next day with an answer from the movie’s director.

The message talked about how happy the spin-off would make us the fans and honestly what a great inversion it would be. I think he may have sympathized with me because i’m argentinian??? (Fun fact: he’s argentinian) and that’s why he answered???? But the point is he said this:

Translation: “Ha, thanks. I proposed the Losers Club spin-off idea to everyone like a year ago. So who knows, maybe…”

I’m happy and shook as hell, and he got my hopes up, so i hope i’m getting up yours. I mean Andy Muschietti is on our side.

Let’s keep fighting for the spin-off we deserve.

(Here you have the petition link in case you wanna sign https://www.change.org/p/netflix-we-need-a-spin-off-from-it-movie-2017?utm_medium=email&utm_source=petition_signer_receipt&utm_campaign=triggered&share_context=signature_receipt&recruiter=815520964&j=159772&sfmc_sub=563554370&l=32_HTML&u=29997343&mid=7233052&jb=168929)

people talk about the danger of violence or overt sexuality in children’s entertainment, but i swear that nothing, nothing fucked me up as badly as the totally family-friendly, g-rated trope of “woman who is not traditionally attractive flirts with our male lead; aren’t her romantic and/or sexual desires inherently disgusting, and thus hilarious?”

and like, at least when i was growing up, it was everywhere: disney movies, saturday morning cartoons–i think it was maybe even more common in stuff aimed at kids, because when you’re not allowed to go blue, there are fewer ways to get a lazy, cheap laugh.

i was freckle-faced and chubby as a kid (both, of course, common cartoon shorthand for “this girl is hideous”), and i literally cannot remember being too young to feel bad about how i looked. i’m sure my baby fat didn’t bother me when i was an actual baby, but my body issues are at least as old as my conscious memory. thank god i had access to feminism and cultural criticism from a comically young age; it rarely protected me from pain but at least i’d heard that it was wrong to send a message that beautiful princesses are protagonists and ugly girls are punchlines.

(as if we have to earn the right to even just want romantic love, to even just feel something for somebody else, as if we have to cash in tiny noses and perfect lips and tiny bodies like fucking arcade tokens before our heartsong is anything but a mean joke)

and granted, there were other issues at play; i’m not pinning all my baggage on, say, that part in aladdin where the fat lady with a gap in her teeth catches him while he’s running for his life and sings that she thinks he’s “rather tasty” and aladdin’s face is all “UGH, OH NOOO,” but i swear i didn’t start to internalize “no decent human being would be grossed out by your romantic interest, or even just find it so ludicrous as to be funny” until about six years ago

and i am five fucking days away from turning thirty

Hm. Let’s talk about Villains and Reality vs Fiction.

Art often reflects a version of reality,

but like a fun house mirror

we understand the truth.

Children understand early on that they will never be a mermaid or a princess. That’s why when you ask a child what they want to be when they grow up, they’ll say “DOCTOR!” or “SINGER” or FIREFIGHTER!” If they ever do say “I want to be Darth Vader!” We can all safety assume this child isn’t actually planning on growing up to slice off his son’s hand and rule a galaxy.
The kid knows they can’t actually be Darth Vader, but they admire Vader’s cool looks, his authority, the awesome one-liners. A child knows. Children are not stupid.
Now, as adults (I hope) we also see the difference between reality and fiction… you know, like we see the difference in good and bad? We can imagine crazy things and insane dramas and read and write about whatever we’d like, but once the book is closed and the movie is turned off people know what they know and do what they do and LIVE their lives with that underlying common law of what is Good. Once in a while, you will have that disturbed mind that will take something like The Joker and misuse him as an excuse to do heinous things, but people are generally good.

So we are allowed to enjoy a story like Jane Eyre, like Suicide Squad, like Star Wars. We are allowed to enjoy the ups, downs, horrors and triumphs of characters like Kylo Ren. We can think Kilgrave from Jessica Jones is charismatic and fun to watch. We can completely adore Loki from Thor.

THESE THINGS ARE OK

Why?

Because the line between fiction and reality is a lot thicker than some people on tumblr are making it out to be.

IWAIZUMI HAJIME APPRECIATION POST.

have I ever mentioned how much I love Iwaizumi Hajime? I think I have but I’ll say it again,

I L O V E I W A I Z U M I H A J I M E, AND I HAVE A WHOLE LONG LIST OF REASONS WHY I LOVE HIM SO MUCH

he’s so precious, so pure, a cinnamon roll, an angel, an inspiration, an amazing ace, a great friend, an insanely adorable child, the actual epitome of perfection.

He loves agedashi tofu, Godzilla, his friends, volleyball. He’s just so pure. I mean, this precious child has patches and shirts of his favourite movie character, he is athletic, the best senpai, a huge dork and a total sweetheart.

Do you remember that one time he found a fish with the same name as Oikawa and he was so proud? Or that other time he said he would always release the cicadas he caught as a kid because he felt bad for them? Or maybe that he is the only one Kentarou listens to because the younger has nothing but respect and admiration for this pure smol bean?

All this boy wishes for is to grow a little taller than his peers, especially his best friend. He is the arm-wrestling champion in Seijou, a little silly nugget who likes rolling his sleeves or stuffing his mouth with food. He lets Makki and Mattsun ruffle his hair when he helped scored a point, teases Oikawa jokingly but no doubt acts as his pillar and emotional support too. (Vice-versa)

He tells his best friend the team with the better six is stronger. He tells his Kouhai that it won’t matter if their team doesn’t win. He assures his Kouhais, his teammates, his friends, he keeps the team together, supports everyone.

It breaks my heart to think that he would question himself for not being good enough, for questioning his position in the team even when he was the one putting it out there that the team with the better six is stronger.

He deserves the entire world, he deserves everything, he deserves to be proud of what he has become.


IWAIZUMI HAJIME DESERVES TO THINK THAT HE IS GOOD ENOUGH AND HE SHOULDN’T QUESTION HIS ROLE AS ACE BECAUSE HE IS SO FUCKING AMAZING AND THAT HE TRIED HIS HARDEST.

I’m sorry but I love him so incredibly much, I would sell my soul to see him happy.

So if any of you ever write, draw, describe him as an abusive person or friend, you clearly do not understand this amazing character at all.

I’ll personally fite you if you ever dare say it cause I will fight a bitch.

anonymous asked:

Want to apply that "fictional things promote bad stuff" logic to George R.R Martin and sue him for promoting genocide? Want to apply that logic to Adventure Time and say that it promotes kids to go out with swords and their dogs? Want to say that zombie movies promote distrust to humanity? If not, then good. You have grown up. Why not instead of blaming porn writers for their own interests, you can educate the children on the existence of porn and help them distinguish reality and fiction?

ive never actually been to taco bell at this point i dont know if its actually any good or its one of those internet fads?whats your onion

Be excellent to each other.

The Signless, Probably

The whole thing with trying to assign Pennywise as an LGBT icon is just… bad. Like, the Babadook thing was due to Netflix categorizing it in it’s “LGBT Movies,” section and it became a running joke. People made memes and wrote long articles about the experiences of the Babadook to the experiences of a gay person. But AS. A. JOKE. A running joke/sarcasm based off a Netflix error. 

The thing with Pennywise is that the joke over Babadook was seemingly missed and instead it was treated as if the LGBT community randomly assigned Babadook as an actual gay icon. So now what? Every time a monster movie comes out we have to hear about how that’s an LGBTQ icon too? Do we really need that sexual/gender identities as movie monsters list? As if we’re not seen as monsters enough? 

And to make it worse you’re attempting to assign a character as an LGBT “icon” that is featured in an explicitly violent homophobic attack. A character that also homophobically taunts a boy who was seemingly characterized as closeted in the previous adaptation. My goodness.
