the hunger games best movie ever

My 100 Favorite Movies of the Decade So Far

My goodness this was difficult. Putting together a list of my 100 favorite movies since 2010 was by far the most challenging movie-post I’ve attempted so far (because this is just so hard am I right?); there have just been so many great movies the last few years, and I’ve seen a lot of them. I’m honestly quite proud of this list, there’s a lot of diversity to it, I just wish I had seen more documentaries and foreign films, but what can you do. Without further ado, strap yourself down and prepare for quite the long post. 

100. Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

Matthew McConaughey solidified his place as one of the hardest working and most versatile actors today. Alright alright alright.

99. Looper (2012)

Rian Johnson proved himself to be on of the most unique voices in sci-fi with this very thought provoking take on time travel. The future of the Star Wars franchise is in great hands.

98. Friends with Benefits (2011)

No, this movie doesn’t break new ground in the romantic comedy genre, but Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake are so fun to watch that you can’t help but smile watching them fall in love.

97. The Skeleton Twins (2014)

Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader have terrific chemistry in a movie that might make you all teary eyed if you have a sibling. Even if you don’t, this is a powerful, warm story about two people reconnecting and moving past darkness.

96. The Drop (2014)

James Gandolfini in his last performance is a slow burn of a crime thriller. And you get to see Tom Hardy hold an adorable puppy throughout. Nuff said.

95. Begin Again (2014)

Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo star in quite the feel good movie. And Adam Levine is a surprisingly good actor, plus Lost Stars is one of last year’s best songs.

94. The Ides of March (2011)

One of George Clooney’s more impressive directorial outings. A little bit like House of Cards before House of Cards was a thing.

93. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

Quite possibly my favorite Edgar Wright film. This is one of the most visually exciting, fun movies on tis list.

92. Predestination (2015)

If you guess the twist, you are a psychic. 

91. Tangled (2010)

One of Disney’s best modern films in its new Golden Age. The animation is simply gorgeous.

90. How to Train Your Dragon (2010)

The first in what is absolutely DreamWorks’ best franchise yet. Unlike many of the studio’s efforts, this is an earnest film focused on heart above all else.

89. Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)

One of the best examples of why a reboot isn’t always a bad thing. Andy Serkis’ Caesar is one of cinema’s greatest characters.

88. Neighbors (2014)

My god this made me laugh.

87. The Master (2012)

I’m still not entirely sure if I understand this, but I do know it contains two of the best performances I’ve ever seen in Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

86. Don Jon (2013)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s very impressive directorial debut is the most honest romantic comedy in quite some time. 

85. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010)

The only massive franchise to deserve a split managed to stay great through all eight installments. The Harry and Hermione dancing sequence is one of the best in the series.

84. The Fault in Our Stars (2014)

The tear-jerker of two people who refuse to let their disease define their existence. Okay? Okay.

83. X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

Bryan Singer had the impossible task of reinventing the X-Men franchise, and he succeeded spectacularly. Let’s see if Joss Whedon can top this version of Quicksilver.

82. War Horse (2011)

No, this doesn’t stand up to Steven Spielberg’s best, but it is an emotional journey that made me want a horse. And my goodness, it’s beautiful.

81. John Wick (2014)

Keanu Reeves gives possibly his best performance since The Matrix, in one of the best modern action films around. Probably more deserving of a sequel than almost any movie out today.

80. Men, Women and Children (2014)

I truly don’t understand the hate this movie received. It hit my heart hard and it has a lot to say about the modern digital age.

79. Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

It’s probably a little too long, but it’s funny and surprisingly emotional. Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling made for a terrific duo.

78. The Raid 2 (2014)

The Raid: Redemption was further proof of why American action films are lacking today, and it’s sequel was even more elaborate, and more exciting. That last fight sequence is perfection.

77. Nightcrawler (2014)

Jake Gyllenhaal is giving great performance after great performance and Lou Bloom is probably his most interesting, and disturbing character to date. If you want to win the lottery, you have to make the money to buy the ticket.

76. Contagion (2011)

If you don’t freak out when you hear coughing after watching this, you’re a stronger person than I am.

75. Rush (2013)

Ron Howard’s best movie in quite sometime, and Chris Hemsworth proved his has what it takes to be a movie star beyond the Marvel universe.

74. Moneyball (2011)

How can you not be romantic about baseball?

73. The Hunt (2013)

My goodness is this movie an emotional tornado. Mads Mikkelsen is unbelievably good here.

72. Shutter Island (2010)

I first saw this movie on a date with a girl I had just started seeing. She wanted to make out, I wanted to watch the movie. Her and I broke up, but I still vividly remember the first time I saw this. I made the right choice.

71. The Grey (2012)

This is more than just another Liam Neeson action film. This is a brutal meditation on how fiercely we hold onto life when we think we no longer want it.

70. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013)

Jennifer Lawrence as one of the best modern heroes leads one of the best franchises in sometime. This is a sequel that improves upon the already very good first movie in every way.

69. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

I don’t think anyone would have guessed that last years’ most memorable characters would be a talking raccoon and a tree, but Marvel continues to dominate the blockbuster landscape with the most fun superhero movie maybe ever.

68. The Conjuring (2013)

This may very well be the best horror film in over a decade. James Wan understood that great horror doesn’t rely on jump scares, and instead uses atmosphere and great pacing to create dread.

67. 21 Jump Street (2012)

Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are two of the best voices in comedy working today, taking a concept that shouldn’t have worked and turning it into a buddy cop movie classic. And who knew Channing Tatum could be so hilarious?

66. Stories We Tell (2013)

A documentary that challenges what it means to be a documentary. 

65. Frozen (2013)

In an era where Disney is creating nothing but great movies, Frozen stands on top as a modern animated classic. And with Frozen 2 just announced, it looks like they won’t be letting it go anytime soon.

64. About Time (2013)

What could have been a generic romance film turned out to be one of the best father/son stories I’ve ever seen. And Rachel McAdams is such a sweetheart.

63. Skyfall (2013)

This is probably the most beautiful, well shot action film in quite sometime. Daniel Craig as James Bond is perfection and I cannot wait for Spectre.

62. Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol (2011)

Tom Cruise is simply the greatest action star working today. I don’t think I’ve ever felt such an adrenaline rush watching a movie before.

61. The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Wes Anderson at his most Wes Anderson-y.

60. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

Marvel’s best standalone movie yet, and absolutely the best part of Phase Two so far. More than just a superhero movie, this is an intense spy thriller with some of the most exciting action sequences in quite a while.

59. 127 Hours (2010)

So much more than “the movie where the guy cuts off his arm.” Although that is something to see.

58. Locke (2014)

Tom Hardy carries a movie that has no right to be as compelling as it is.

57. Argo (2012)

Ben Affleck is simply one of the greatest directors working today, and even though this is his weakest film in my opinion, it is still a heart pounding experience.

56. True Grit (2010)

The Coen brothers made the best Western of the modern age, and it is the superior version.

55. Buried (2010)

Anyone who debates Ryan Reynolds’ acting abilities hasn’t seen this.

54. Let Me In (2010)

Another reason why not all remakes are bad. This is just as great as the terrific Swedish version. Forget Twilight, this is a great vampire film.

53. Source Code (2011)

Who knew repeating the same scene over and over could be so interesting.

52. Zero Dark Thirty (2013)

Kathryn Bigelow refuses to coddle her audience, creating war movies that actual delve deep into character and display America’s mistakes. Jessica Chastain gives an incredible performance.

51. Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

Last year’s biggest surprise. It’s Groundhog Day meets Aliens meets Saving Private Ryan and it’s awesome.

50. A Most Violent Year (2014)

Oscar Isaac channels a young Al Pacino in a very atypical gangster film.

49. Trust (2011)

I feel like I’m the only person in the world that loves this movie, but it’s so much more than just a Lifetime special like some of its critics say. Liana Liberato leads a very emotional, powerful story about how terrible people take advantage of someone who just wants understanding and love.

48. Ted (2012)

This might be my favorite straight comedy in years.

47. The Descendants (2011)

Alexander Payne gave us one of George Clooney’s best performances and introduced me to Shailene Woodley. This is a great family drama.

46. Silver Linings Playbook (2012)

So much more than a romantic comedy. It deals with mental illness in a mature way and started the David O. Russell/Jennifer Lawrence/Bradley Cooper team.

45. Captain Phillips (2013)

Paul Greengrass is probably the only director capable of using shaky-cam effectively, and Tom Hanks reminds us why he’s such a legend.

44. Blue is the Warmest Color (2013)

Forget all the behind the scenes controversy, this is a heartbreaking look at two lovers growing apart from each other. And Adele Exarchopoulos is everything.

43. Cloud Atlas (2012)

Possibly the most ambitious undertaking on this list. Somehow the Wachowski’s and Tom Tykwer made six interweaving stories in different parts of history meld together in quite the extraordinary experience.

42. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

Even though the Swedish version is great, David Fincher’s take on the material is more styish and more compelling. Rooney Mara gives my second favorite performance of the decade so far (you’ll see number one later).

41. End of Watch (2012)

David Ayer’s cop film is one of the most emotional expereinces on this list.

40. Les Miserables (2012)

Tom Hooper’s epic musical. The “Can You Hear the People Sing” sequence is one of the greatest scenes of any movie on this list.

39. Midnight in Paris (2011)

I haven’t seen nearly as much Woody Allen as I would like to (which also sounds like a terrible Woody Allen joke), but this is such a charming, funny, unique film. I love it.

38. Hugo (2011)

Martin Scorsese’s love letter to cinema.

37. This Is the End (2013)

I lied, this is my favorite comedy of the last couple years. Jonah Hill getting raped by Satan is the funniest thing you’ll ever see.

36. Gravity (2013)

Alfono Cuaron’s revolutionary space-thriller is an experience that will leave you breathless.

35. Before Midnight (2013)

Richard Linklater is the master of taking normal life and making it into something as compelling as any blockbuster. This is the conclusion as one of the greatest and least likely trilogies in film history. I hope we get one every nine years.

34. 12 Years a Slave (2013)

My goodness, this is one of the most emotionally draining, but necessary films I’ve ever seen. 

33. 50/50 (2011)

I never would have guessed a cancer-comedy would work so well, but this is a funny and ultimately a film that devastates the heart.

32. What If (2014)

This movie just makes me so so happy. It also made me cry. This charming, sweet romantic comedy is my life in so many ways.

31. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

Matt Reeves wisely put the focus on the apes in one of the greatest sequels I’ve ever seen.

30. Foxcatcher (2014)

This is a slow, cold, brooding film with three of the best performances in any movie I’ve ever seen. Anyone who argues Channing Tatum isn’t a great actor at this point is just being foolish.

29. The Spectacular Now (2013)

James Ponsoldt has such a great understanding of what it’s like to be in high school, not knowing what the future holds. John Hughes would be proud.

28. The Town (2010)

Ben Affleck’s Heat is a terrific crime thriller with some incredibly tense moments.

27. The Fighter (2010)

This is so much more than a boxing movie. This is a story about two brothers who above all else in their life, love each other.

26. Shame (2011)

Steve McQueen’s study of sex addiction is the most powerful addiction story since Requiem for a Dream. Michael Fassbender is god here.

25. Selma (2014)

This is not a biopic that paints someone’s entire life in a Lifetime sheen, but instead explores Martin Luther King Jr.’s frustrations, fears, and hopes in vivid detail.

24. Blue Valentine (2010)

The most devastatingly honest story about love and the loss of love I’ve ever seen.

23. The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

If The Conjuring is the best straight horror film in a while, this is by far the most enjoyable. Deconstructing horror tropes even better than Scream did in the 90′s, this is a brilliant, fun look at a genre that has been weighed down by constant cliche.

22. The Avengers (2012)

This is the movie every comic book nerd like myself has dreamed about, I just couldn’t have imagined it would be this great. The culmination of years of setup, this was cinematic ecstasy.

21. Django Unchained (2012)

Quentin Tarantino’s bloody “Southern” is brutal, hilarious, dramatic, and gave us some terrific performances.

20. The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)

One of the best high school films of all time. A great soundtrack, great characters, and an author who directed his own terrific book.

19. Gone Girl (2014)

David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s great novel (and her equally great script) satirizes the media, Nancy Grace, marriage, and a host of other issues in this very effective mystery. Rosamund Pike is unbelievably good.

18. How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

DreamWorks’ best film yet is an ambitious, beautifully animated, shocking film about taking on more responsibility than we think we can handle. Toothless is one of the greatest animated creatures of all time.

17. Black Swan (2010)

Natalie Portman gives one of my favorite performances on this list in Darren Aronofsky’s fable about the horrors of the quest for perfection. And Mila Kunis isn’t a bad addition either.

16. Warrior (2011)

What could have easily been just a predictable sports film turned into one of the most emotional stories I can remember. Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton are terrific in this brother vs. brother story.

15. Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)

One of the Coen brother’s best films is a depressing look into how success doesn’t find everyone. Oscar Isaac is amazing and the music is great. And that cat is so cute.

14. The Place Beyond the Pines (2014)

Derek Cianfrance explores the cause and effect fathers have on their sons in a family drama where the word epic can be appropriately used. This hit me hard.

13. The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

I don’t understand the disappointment some felt while watching this masterpiece. Christopher Nolan ended one of the greatest trilogies of all time on a somber, meditative note, and the last 10 minutes are some of the greatest I can remember.

12. Life of Pi (2012)

Ang Lee’s mind-blowingly gorgeous film will leave you awestruck. This is the most beautifully shot film on the list. This is a technical achievement like no other.

11. Boyhood (2014)

Rarely is a filmmaker able to do something that has literally never been done before, but Richard Linklater’s 12 year project is one of simple perfection. He shows us the small moments are what add up and make life worth living.

10. Short Term 12 (2013)

This movie will break your heart, rebuild it, break it again, tape it back together, and leave it up to you to pick up the pieces. Maybe this hit me harder than it will most people because this is what I want to do with my career, but if you’re able to sit through the “octopus story” scene and not have a little something in your eye, you’re cold.

9. Drive (2011)

Nicolas Winding Refn’s neo-noir is the coolest movie I’ve ever seen. Ryan Gosling is perfectly cast in this very different crime movie, where the neon lights shine brightly, the people are brutal, and all the driver needs is five minutes.

8. Whiplash (2014)

My goodness this movie grabs you from the first scene and doesn’t let go. With one of the best final scenes I’ve ever seen in a movie, this film is non-stop excitement. J.K. Simmons is operating on a whole other level here.

7. Interstellar (2014)

Christopher Nolan shot for the stars with his space epic, and in my mind, he flew beyond them. This is one of the most ambitious and emotional movie going experiences I’ve ever had. Beautifully shot, wonderfully acted, incredibly directed, this is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)

A perfect conclusion to one of the greatest franchises in film history. I can’t imagine Harry, Hermione, and Ron’s story ending in a better way. The Battle of Hogwarts is one of the most satisfying action sequences I’ve ever seen, and the “Snape memory” sequence is heartbreaking beyond compare. My favorite Harry Potter film.

5. The Social Network (2010)

In 50 years, if there is one movie that defines this generation it’s this one. Mark Zuckerberg changed the way we communicate forever, and David Fincher’s version of this story is one that made “the Facebook movie” so much more than that.

4. Her (2013)

The great romance of the modern era. Spike Jonze’s vision of the future is full of warm, light colors and a lot of loneliness. You believe in the romance between Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson. You believe they love each other and you believe Theodore can grow past his inability to truly, selflessly care for someone.

3. Toy Story 3 (2010)

The greatest animated film so far this decade is also the conclusion of one of cinema’s great trilogies. Pixar hit all the right notes in its sendoff to childhood and what it means to let go of the things you love the most. Toy Story 4 needs to be perfect. It just needs to be.

2. Inception (2010)

Christopher Nolan is unlike no other filmmaker working today. He’s able to craft intimate character studies in the backdrop of larger than life action sequences. This mix of The Matrix and James Bond is one of the most unique, bold sci-fi films I’ve witnessed. I left the theater euphoric. 

1. The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

The moment I saw this movie I knew it would be one of my favorites for a long time to come. Leonardo DiCaprio gives my favorite performance so far this decade and maybe one of my favorites of all time. Martin Scorsese made this drug-fueled-3-hour-party into the most exciting, hilarious, wild film experience I can imagine. This is a heroin shot to movie theaters while never losing its social importance and condemnation of what people like Jordan Belfort represent. 

Well, there it is guys. I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. I would love to heart your favorite films of the decade so far, because nothing brings us together quite like the power of the movies. 

hiramekinogem-chan  asked:

I followed you because of your great crusade in spreading the love for Unwind Dystology (seriously people need to read these books). Hands down, one of the best book series ever. (Way better than The Hunger Games tbh. THG just happens to have good publicists & good movie makers) I'm just glad that Connor, Risa, Lev, Hayden & Grace made it (in a way) in the end. I was really nervous before & while reading UnDivided for the 1st time. Stay whole my friend.

♡ *˚✵*·✫˚✧.✹ ⋆ ✦ *  this is such a lovely message, thank you!! couldn’t agree more tbh, i’ve always been a fan of thg and other dystopian series, as well as ya lit books in general but there’s only room in my heart for unwind!! what can i say? the unwind dystology set the bar waaay too high for me, i find myself comparing same genre books to unwind…. nothing can top shusterman’s story and characters imo. im deep trash for these books and its characters they all have a special place in my heart, my children ♥ undivided is my fave book of the series yet the only one i can’t bring myself to re-read, i’m so much of a coward and can’t handle the roller coaster that is the final installment. anyways, it truly makes me happy whenever unwind stans leave messages in my askbox i loooove talking to other unwind stans or ppl who are curious about the series and want to give read it, our fandom is too smal pls give the unwind series a shot, these books deserve more love!!! ….i’ve got you under my skin

‘Finnick and I sit for a long time in silence, watching the knots bloom and vanish, before I can ask, “How do you bear it?”

Finnick looks at me in disbelief. “I don’t, Katniss! Obviously, I don’t. I drag myself out of nightmares each morning and find there’s no relief in waking.” Something in my expression stops him. “Better not to give in to it. It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.”’

Finnick and Katniss bonding over their shared misery because of the capitol gives me all the feels. :(

I went to see Mockinjay part 1 this week, and it’s AMAZING!! Probably the best book to movie adaption I’ve ever seen.. And well, I’ve been itching to draw Hungergames fanart for weeks now and I guess it was bound to happen, and there will be more for sure. So be warned :p

Alexa Cruz. Household name. Role model to girls around the world. Actress. Model. The things she was known for were endless. But who really was Alexa Cruz? In that moment she was filming her new movie that was supposed to be the biggest thing since The Hunger Games and put the box office records to shame. It would have been perfect too if it weren’t for her costar who was the most conceded, arrogant, lazy, asshole she had ever met. What made matters worse is that not only did they have to fake their chemistry and love on camera but off. At the moment they had to pretend to be best friends for the press in order to build buzz for the movie, when in reality Alexa could not stand him. She had just finished a scene and didn’t have another one until the next day when she was told she had an interview with Buzzfeed to stir up buzz for the movie. 

The brunette nodded and headed towards the area where the camera was set up. There was two seats across from each other with big white lights on either side to make sure the lighting was perfect. There was also a camera on either side behind each chair in order to record every moment of the interview and turn it into whatever the website wanted to air. Nonetheless Alexa headed over to the chair and sat down as makeup came over to touch up her face from the last scene. Her chocolate brown eyes wandered to a man close by and asked, “Hey… you the one doing this interview?” She paused for a response. “I’m Alexa…” She smiled sweetly. “Don’t make me look like an idiot.” She said with a laugh, half teasing, half serious. Interviewers could make anyone look like anything they wanted. 

How To Deal With Specific Fandoms (not all of them).

Supernatural: They are good people, just don’t mess with them because they are gonna fucking invoke a demon and stab you with a freaking knife.

Sherlock: They are also really nice but they can get a little crazy and start to cry with no apparent reason, but believe me, they have.

Doctor Who: They are strong as fuck. They have been through a lot so they can handle most of the stuff that you tell them because their fandom is big as hell. JUST DONT TELL THEM THE POEM “Roses are red, violets are blue..” just don’t, for your own good.

Hannibal: They are scary, and a little psychopaths, but they are cool. You can get scared with them.

Pretty Little Liars: Yes, they have waited a lot, but they will always say that they are the fandom that have waited the longest, but it is not true.

The Walking Dead: Crazy, traumatized, but nice.

Glee: They are really good people, and you can count on them, just don’t mention their fandom right now, they are passing through a tough time.

Harry Potter: Amazing people, you can count on them, they will understand you, they will be there for you, and they are not creepy (yes very important information).

The Hunger Games: They may want to start a revolution so you have to calm them down. 

The Mortal Instruments: They are still going trought a very difficult process because the last book has just been released and it is a tough fase. A little bit obsessed with drawing symbols in their arms. 

Percy Jackson: They are just as the potterheads, they are nice, just don’t ever, I repeat EVER tell them that you loved the movies, for your own good and safety.

How I Met Your Mother: They are one of the best people of the entire fandom family. They are nice, kind, hilarious, but when you say that you don’t like Barney, then you’re getting personal.


And remember, mess with one of us, you’ll have to face us all
  • Katniss: Agreed. It's going to be a long hour.
  • Peeta: Maybe not that long. What was that you were saying just before the food arrived? Something about me ... no competition ... best thing that ever happened to you ...
  • Katniss: I don't remember that last part.
  • Peeta: Oh, that's right. That's what I was thinking. Scoot over, I'm freezing.
How to annoy everyone you know in 5 minutes or less.

Current Mood: Contemplative

Drink of choice: Uhhhh a lot of things.

Count: ????

I’m not doing politics. I’m gonna basically sum up the plot of shows I’ve never seen before.

Avatar series: Some bald dude with an arrow AKA the most ego centric person since Kanye gets a bunch of his friends together to fuck up China in the most convulated way to say that ego man is America nad his friends are Europe. Also has good representation I guess. Also the bald dudes mom is married to a girl? Which I’m happy about? All the bald dude is his mom? And there’s some weird fedora wearing group in the second series that wants everyone to be equal or some shit? But does it all the wrong way I guess. They tip their fedoras to bending atheism. Also bending did not mean genderbending and I was infinitely disappointed.

Dr. Who: Dude goes through time and space and spends a huge chunk of his time on Earth. Can reincarnate into anyone and always picks a white British man. This cosmic being has a blue police call box as a spaceship. Again. THIS COSMIC BEING DECIDED ENGLAND IS WHAT HE WANTED TO MODEL HIS SHIT AFTER. Apparently some guy named Moffat is a tosser. 

RWBY: Spelling is irrelevant, only sword guns from FFVII are relevant. Does not contain enough magnum gun for me to care? Apparently is better than sex and the second coming of Christ, but at the same time, worse than dead babies and Space Mecha Hitler. There’s an academy and they’re people and Kathleen Zeulch is in it too. Monty’s actual baby.

Hunger Games: Jennifer Lawrence’s quest to use a bow and arrows to take down a regime populated by the most fucked up people ever. Also there’s a bird and some weird death match with kids. Totally family friendly.

Harry Potter: Boy is The One. Turns out everyone else is a tosser save for the boy and his friends and everyone but the people who aren’t tossers.

House of Cards: Kevin Spacey’s autobiography.

Orange is the New Black: Better representation than your average liberal arts college. Also there’s a prison or something.

Parks and Recreation: the reason Aziz Ansari can’t tour all year long. Amy Pohler is a better Michael Scott than Michael Scott. Moustacheses. Fat Chris Pratt. A stereotype of the uncaring millennial.

The Big Bang Theory: Revenge of the Nerds for the people who thought that movie was too nerdy. 

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The only way we’d ever stop yelling at Marvel for murdering the FUCK out of best fucking character from the Avengers. MARVEL WHAT THE FUCK.

Marvel’s Agent Carter: Way better character than Captain America gets a show because she is way better than Captain America. 

1D BSM #23; You meet one of / the cast of the Hunger Games

Zayn (16); *your pov* today I turned 16, I have a feeling that this will be the best birthday ever, “(y/n) c’mon we will be late” zayn said, and I ran to the door, “where are we going?” I asked excited, “it’s a surprise” he said with a smirk, “I don’t like surprises” I said, “I know” he chuckled, the drive was fast, we arrived, it was a tall building, “okay zayn, what are we doing here?” I asked, “stop asking! It’s a surprise” he said, and I just nodded, he took my hand and we entered the building, wow it’s huge, then zayn knocked on a door, and a bodyguard opened the door, “hello Mr.Malik, we’re waiting for you” he said, okay now I’m confused, we entered and then I saw her, oh my god, oh my god, “hello” Jennifer Lawrence said to me, “hello, I love you soo much, you’re my role model” I said to her, she chuckled and hugged me, this is like a dream, I looked at Zayn and he smiled at me and I nodded my head thanking him for this amazing gift, I knew this will be a day to remember.

Niall (17); niall was invited to the hunger games premier, and he decided to take you since you’re a big fan of them, and you were hoping to meet at least one of them tonight. Finally you and niall arrived and you walked inside together, then Josh Hutcherson walked to you and your brother, “hello man” he said, “hey” niall answered him, “so who is this?” He asked and looked at you, “this is (y/n), she’s my sister” niall said, “hello (y/n)” he said and hugged you, you hugged him back, “see you around I think” he said and walked away, you and niall started walking, and then you turned around and saw josh looking at you, then he winked and walked away, this night can’t get any better.

Harry(16); *your pov* “harry where are we going?” I asked him, “I’m not telling youu” he said, I don’t know what happened to him, he just said that he wants to take me to a “secret place”, “whatever” I mumbled, we finally arrived, it looks like a studio, where they make movies and things like that, we entered and a bodyguard came to us, “Mr.Styles please follow me” he said, and I looked at harry and he just smiled, we followed the bodyguard, then he opened the door for us, oh my god, THE HUNGER GAMES CAST, shit shit shit, keep calm (y/n), don’t freak out, “hello” I said and smiled at them, “hello” they all said together, when we get home I will jump on harry and keep kissing him and thanking him for this.

Liam (18); *your pov* liam invited me to go with him to some award show, since Sophia is sick, so I said yes, I was sitting next to the boys, I wanted to fix my make-up, “liam I will be right back” I whispered to him and he nodded his head, I got up from my chair and walked away, on my way there a man ran, “I’m sorry” he said, “it’s okay” I said, “you okay? ” I looked up to see Liam Hemsworth, shit I hope I look good, ” (y/n),yeah I’m fine thanks for asking” I smiled, “will you look beautiful, very” he said and I blushed, then we heard someone say “and the winner of the best movie is : THE HUNGER GAMES”, then liam looked at me with wide eyes and said, “I need to goo, see youu around” he yelled and ran to the stage, I smiled, this was the best thing ever, I will thank liam for taking me with him.

Louis (17); Louis asked you to come on tour for a few weeks with him, in America, so you said yes, like why not?, you are in your seat dancing and singing with some fans, you looked to your left to see Jane Malone, you stared at her for a while, and she looked at you and smiled, she can tell that you’re a fan, “hi” she yelled because it’s hard to hear anything from the yelling, “hi” you yelled back, “can I have a picture” you asked a bit unsure, you didn’t want to bother her, “yeah sure” she smiled, and you took a picture, “thanks a lot” you said, “not a problem” she said, this is the best night, you thought to yourself.

anonymous asked:

Do you think Valhalla is likely to become a best-seller? Like do you think it could ever become as successful as other YA book series? Successful enough to warrant a movie adaptation even? Could it be one of those books publicised as 'the next Hunger Games'? Would you envision it being the kind of book you see on supermarket shelves along with other YA books? Basically how successful do you honestly think this series will be?

Naturally I hope for everything, biggest book ever, movies I direct and billions of dollars and fame and fortune. How likely is it? Probably not very. Thing is though, I’m not gonna stop trying to make it go that big. So either I’ll make it go huge or die trying. Not die because of trying, but die still trying. There’s every reason to try and no reason to give up.

I don’t think it will ever be called “the next Hunger Games,” though, if it goes big it’ll probably be considered the black sheep of the popular YA world. It’s very violent and morally opposite of what most YA books go for. Once the trilogy is complete it’ll be infamous among readers for having a third act unlike anything in the conventional YA world.

Basically, if Harry Potter is the big brother, Twilight is the melancholy older sister, Hunger Games is the tough athletic sister and The Fault in Our Stars is the prodigious younger brother who everyone loves, then Valhalla is the bad little girl who gets into a fight at the family dinner and kicks everyone in the shins and has to go to her room.

That’s cool thought because she grows up to be a badass ninja assassin.

sappy post time.

let me start by saying - i can’t believe that our journey all together is almost coming to an end with the final movie coming out this week. 

i can still remember my lil baby self in 2012, fresh out the books, seeing the hunger games for the first time in theaters. i remember seeing the trailer for the first time and getting chills over my entire body. once i saw it on screen, i was a freaking goner. i wept. 

catching fire was a whole different animal. everyone got HOTTER and the hype was so so so real on tumblr. ive never felt more of a community on here than i did when catching fire promo/hype was happening. when the movie came out, it was unreal. we all know this. we all experienced it together. 

mockingjay pt. 1. i had grown up a lot. i think we all had. it was like a stepping stone, and we stayed together. we’ve always stayed together.

and now…we’re here. the final installment. ive known some of you since day 1, day 1 of the hunger games fandom. and we’ve laughed together, cried together, freaked out together, grown to know and love each other.

we’ve been lucky to have also been given some of the best actors we could have ever asked for. i feel like they’re part of our fandom too, and we owe so much to them. you guys on tumblr have become my fandom family, and i wouldn’t trade this feeling for the world.

here’s to one more movie together. i wouldn’t trade this experience for the world.


Since Taylor loves that we update her on how our lives are going, this post is mainly for her, because honestly I think she’d freak out if she knew this. So.. @taylorswift hi :) About a year ago you sent me this journal and commented on my acting which meant the entire WORLD to me (and still does). Since then, I’ve still been auditioning and training and working like CRAZY to be the best I can possibly be. About a month ago, I sent in an audition tape for a project called The Rejects. The cool thing about this project is that it’s not just one movie, it’s an entire franchise. So eventually there will be 4 movies total (kinda like The Hunger Games, Divergent, etc). Long story short, I made it to final callbacks. It was the best audition experience I’ve ever had, but don’t get me wrong…it was hard. I’ve never pushed myself as hard as I did in preparation for that final callback. I’ll spare the details since I don’t want this post to be 20 pages long, but basically………..I got the part. My character is one of the lead characters, her nickname is Ice, and she’s basically a badass with powers that could kill someone….and I GOT IT??? SWEET LITTLE MAC??? I’m so happy. Taylor, I just want to thank you for always ALWAYS inspiring me to go after what I want. You giving me this journal for me to “write it all down” has been my number one source of motivation. When we met and I told you I was moving to LA and there wasn’t ONE ounce of doubt or judgement in your eyes??? It just meant the world to me. Even if you don’t see this, I know you’re probably proud of me for reaching this milestone. My first role…is a lead. Keep your eyes peeled for The Rejects next year……Hope you enjoyed this #MacUpdate. :)
