I would like to take this moment to tell all my followers to watch what we do in the shadows. Quite honestly the greatest vampire movie I have ever seen. It has a stellar cast and it is absolutely hilarious. I cannot stress how good this movie is so just go watch it.
Let’s get real: Kilgrave is the best super villain ever. Not just in TV, or the MCU, but the greatest super villain ever put to screen. Three main reasons:
Firstly, the actor. On paper, casting David ‘Greatest Human Ever‘ Tennant as a villain seems like a really bad idea. Especially considering his most famous role is the Doctor, one of the most famous heroes in science fiction.
But holy shit, Tennant is scary as hell as Kilgrave. Mostly because that effortless charm, likability and elegance he brings to every role is present here as well. No matter how much you force yourself to always hate Kilgrave, you will find yourself feeling sorry for him. You will find yourself wondering if there is more to Kilgrave than just his self serving nature would imply.
Only for the show to remind you that he’s a sociopathic asshole, and then you realize Kilgrave isn’t just manipulating the characters in the show, he’s also manipulating you!
Secondly, his powers: There a lot of villains who can kill you in gruesome and terrifying ways. But Kilgrave does something far more terrifying. He can make you kill yourself. Or just cut off a limb. Or murder your entire family. Hell, god knows how many people he’s raped outside of Jessica and Hope.
And you can’t fight it. Whatever he tells you to do, no questions, no resistance, you just obey. That’s more than disturbing. That’s dehumanizing.
Thirdly, and most importantly, Kilgrave feels real: For me, the close runners up for best super villain are Wilson Fisk from Daredevil and the Joker. But they both represent ideas. Fisk is absolute order, Joker is absolute anarchy. Both terrifying in their own ways. But both are the kind of people you know aren’t real, but the thought of them potentially being real is scary.
Kilgrave however, he is real. Maybe not with those mind control powers, but he exists. Odds are, you’ve met someone like him. Someone who’s selfish, entitled, uncaring of others, obsessive, manipulative. Kilgrave may just be a comic book villain, but he’s a personification of every ‘nice guy‘, every stalker, , every self serving dick you either have met or will meet at some point.
I’ve been thinking about this way too much at work so I figured I’d share (if a character isn’t listed it means that either I didn’t have any good ideas or i forgot about them) and some actors are listed more than once because i thought they’d be interesting in multiple roles and also because I WANT THEM IN THE SHOW. put Aldis Hodge in ASoUE. DO IT.
Esme Gigi Genevieve Squalor: Laverne Cox Mindy Kaling Taraji P. Henson Anne Hathaway Freema Agyemen Alia Shawkat
Jerome Squalor: John Cho John Boyega Aldis Hodge Mahershala Ali Rami Malek
Hector: Lee Pace Aldis Hodge Dev Patel Dule Hill
VFD Elders: Patrick Stewart Ian McKellan Danny Glover Harrison Ford Betty White Maggie Smith Liza Minelli Cher ??? All your faves ok i can’t think of enough older actors
Hal: Dustin Hoffman Morgan Freeman
Captain Widdershins: Chi McBride Forest Whitaker (tell me this would not be the greatest casting choice ever)
Fiona: Quvenzhané Wallis Auli'i Cravalho I DON’T KNOW ANY YOUNG ACTORS ANY MORE HELP
The Man With a Beard But No Hair: Samuel L. Jackson or someone who doesn’t look intimidating at all like Matthew Broderick
The Woman With Hair, But No Beard:
Madame Lulu: Emily Browning ?? I don’t know I’m drawing a blank here
Kevin: Bill Hader Keegan-Michael Key Aziz Ansari
Kit Snicket: Emily Browning Anne Hathaway Lucy Liu Mila Kunis Ruth Negga Mizuo Peck
Jacques Snicket: Sebastian Stan???? Daniel Henney Shia LaBeouf Javier Bardem Steve Coogan
honestly like call the midwife is just such a pure show???like, wholesome, relatable characters who have flaws and aren’t perfect and make mistakes who are played by the greatest cast possibly to have ever graced the bbc???and the storylines are all rly historically accurate and emotional and there’s no sugar-coating, everything is exactly the way it would’ve been back then but are still relatable enough to the viewers???and also not to mention the fact that we’ve now had a healthy lesbian relationship portrayed for two seasons now and neither of them have died yet(touch wood)and they’re actually, like, living together(with a bunch of nuns but still)and they are portrayed as a normal couple who fight regularly and don’t always agree and aren’t just there to keep lgbt fans satisfied or for a shock value storyline and honestly it’s just such a good bit of television 10/10 keep up the good work
Book of Mormon: Favorite Musical AAAAAAAAH you have no idea how difficult of a question this is for me… I think I can narrow it down to three musicals
Les Miserables- it’s based off my favorite book, the soundtrack is stellar, and I love to torture myself with Emotions
Next to Normal- another great musical for the Feels. I relate to this musical in a way that I can’t relate to anything else. Everything about it is absolutely fantastic and gosh I love it so much
Heathers: HEATHERS IS SO FANTASTIC; the first time I ever watched it , I knew NOTHING about it, I had heard “Dead Girl Walking” on tumblr and thought that it sounded great so I watched it and I was really annoyed because I thought it was a typically 80s/90s teen girl movie style and then the murders happened and it ended up being one of the greatest rides I have ever experienced
The Last Five Years: Favorite cast of any show? I would have to say either Hamilton OBC or the cast of DWSA; also Wicked OBC is amazing
Girls will be cruel, and boys will be mean. They both will break your heart in one way or another my darling, and I dread the day that I see sorrow purse your little lips as they quiver while you try not to cry.
Your little feelings will be hurt and you won’t understand why that tall tenth grader told you that your smile was brighter than the city lights, yet kissed another girl goodnight.
Baby girl, I promise you that I will dry every tear that you let me, and I’ll pull back when you need your space. I will do whatever it is that you need me to, and I’ll carry your heart when it’s too heavy to hold.
I will love you every second that I’m breathing, and I’ll work as hard as I can to give you the life that you deserve.
God blessed me with the grandest adventure that I would ever embark on, he gave me the greatest gift I would ever receive, he gave me you.
He cast me in the greatest role that I will ever play, your Mommy.
