the making of thriller

Just kiss me, baby and tell me twice

that you’re the one for me

So, this was the little thing I had stuck in my head for so long. I was too excited to show you all so I rushed XD

Enjoy, sweets!!!

ALRIGHT THIS IS A LONG POST. i know i asked about this the other day and you lovely bastards provided beautiful research sO now that ive mulled it over ive come to the following conclusions:

Alexander “Horror Movies Are So Tasteless” Hamilton- it takes a lot to scare this guy. He will sit there and point out every inconsistency and make sure everyone else in the room knows it too. He’s always willing to point out when things get too fake or unrealistic- the saw movies make for a good psychological thriller sure, but he thinks the gore is excessive. Paranormal Activity? Get that shit outta here. Jump scares have made him jump…but never scream. Even haunted houses with him are likely to end in fighting the scarers instead of just enjoying the time. He has the least problems with the psychological horror films, stuff like Silence of the Lambs and The Shining.

John “Sign Me The Fuck Up” Laurens- fucking loves horror movies. A bit of a connoisseur of sorts. He has one of those scrapbooks full of horror movies, pirated and originals and he always picks on movie night. A big fan of the paranormal films, especially poltergeist and the exorcism. The guy to always go SHH SHH THIS IS THE BEST PART.

Lafayette- SCAREDY CAT. But in a good way. They love to scream…it’s the adrenaline rush. Getting scared is fun and terrifying and a good way to release pent up emotions. Theyre always grabbing someone, mostly Hercules or Alex (though it’s hilarious when Laf tramples tiny Alex). Laf also screams at the dumbest things unscary things…and when everyone looks at them like 😒…they just shrug..“Quoi…j'étais effrayé…”

Hercules “PLEASE DON’T SIGN ME THE FUCK UP” Mulligan- THE BIGGEST SCAREDY CAT OF THEM ALL. He gets zero satisfaction from horror films and will scream. “WHAT THE FUCK WHYS THAT DUDE JUST WALKING IN THERE!!?? 😱😱” Always questioning the intelligence of the characters because why would anyone in their right mind nEVER TURN ON THE DAMN LIGHTS IN A HOUSE THAT’S HAUNTED??
If you take Hercules through a haunted house you have to DRAG him and he cries in the back. Laurens once made the mistake of telling the scarers to single him out and they all got escorted out for Hercules nearly tearing down an entire set to get the hell out of there.

Aaron “How Did I Get Here” Burr- How did he end up wasting so many Friday nights watching horror movies with these fools?? He’s the guy that accidentally gives away the ending because he’s trying to remember if this movie was like the other one he saw and everyone collectively groans like CMON REALLY?? (Hercules thanks him) HE DIDN’T MEAN TO…IT GENUINELY WAS AN ACCIDENT. He wishes Alex would stop picking apart every single thing, just let the others enjoy. Burr actually likes horror movies. It’s not his favorite genre, but he doesn’t get all that scared and finds them actually interesting.

James Madison- a huge fan of the classics. Everything else is just bad nowadays and no one else can appreciate the integrity of the older films. He has a lot of useless trivia about horror films, but is polite enough to only share when there is a lull in the movie or afterwards.

Thomas “That Wasn’t A Scream, That Was A Cough!” Jefferson- Oh he is definitely afraid. Horror movies get to him, but he is too prideful to say anything. Besides, he can’t be scared if Hamilton isn’t, that would mean he would lose. Any whimper or muffled shriek he either claims it’s a cough or blames it on someone else. And if he shifts closer to whoever is next to him, well, it isn’t mentioned.

George “I Fell Asleep Through Half Of It And Now I Don’t Know What’s Happening And Have To Ask A Lot Of Questions” Washington- Pretty self explanatory.

Angelica “Ugh This Is Dumb” Schuyler- She’d rather be watching literally anything else, but she has no real issues with horror films. She gets scared at the scary parts and that is that.

ElizaAAAAAA Schuyler- The “cover your eyes” kind of scared. She doesn’t want to see the gore or the jump scares, but she likes the plots. The terribly bad old scary movies are more her style.

Peggy “I’m Curiously Peeking Through My Fingers” Schuyer- She wants to see what the hype is, but she thinks about the paranormal ones especially too much afterwards and gets spooked way too easily. The sisters tend to latch onto each other when they decide to join and watch.

OK I RAN OUT OF STEAM BUT HERE FOR NOW…

About the Sherlock  South Korean OCN Trailers..

When Johnlock becomes canon, make some acknowledgements for South Korea..

(I do not own the videos, they are from YouTube)

@whereisjawn here, I made a whole post to appreciate them xD

I LIKED THE FINAL PROBLEM

I seriously loved the whole psychological aspect of it all being in Eurus head and her being the girl on the plane (SPOILER!).

I liked the whole concept of the different rooms and each one is challenging
someone else.

I liked Mycroft and what he did for John and Sherlock (provoking sherlocks feelings for John so he isn’t the one sherlock shoots)

I liked the harmony the episode ended in.. did molly forgive Sherlock? She looked quite happy in that last glance we got of her.

I DIDN’T like that it felt more like a psychological thriller, surely it was possible to make it a bit more Sherlock - like.

But then again, you could practically see the Brains that were put into this episode. The hard work and heart that was needed to make it the way it is.

So don’t you al dare to bitch on either this episode or the writers, because it was brilliantly made and the plot twists.. oh dear.
If you’ve read the original stories you will know that there were several aspects of the originals put into this episode. APPRECIATE IT.

I just hope that this wasn’t the last episode of sherlock ever.
Has anyone information on that?

Jared Leto Making Directing Debut With Patty Hearst Thriller ’77’ for Paramount
Paramount Pictures has hired Jared Leto to direct the police thriller “77,” in what will be the actor’s feature directorial debut.
By Dave McNary

Leto previously helmed the documentary “Artifact,” which won an award at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival. He has also directed numerous music videos and commercials under the pseudonym Bartholomew Cubbins.

The “Suicide Squad” actor will direct from from an original screenplay by “L.A. Confidential” author James Ellroy with revisions by David Matthews (“Narcos,” “Boardwalk Empire”).

The story, set in politically charged 1974 Los Angeles, centers around two police officers who team up to recover kidnapped heiress Patty Hearst while simultaneously investigating the brutal murder of a fellow officer. They uncover not only relentless corruption and crime but a dark and violent conspiracy as well.

Hearst hid out in Los Angeles that year with the her kidnappers from the Symbionese Liberation Army but managed to escape before most of the SLA members were gunned down in a shootout with the LAPD. She remained on the lam for more than a year.

The film will be produced by writer/producer Dick Wolf and Tony Ganz of Wolf Films. Leto is also producing. Emma Ludbrook is the executive producer. Leto and Ludbrook work under their company Paradox.

Leto, who won a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for “Dallas Buyers Club,” will next be seen in “Blade Runner 2049” opposite Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling.

On this day in music history: December 2, 1983 - “Michael Jackson’s Thriller” makes its television broadcast debut on MTV. Directed by John Landis (“National Lampoon’s Animal House”, “The Blues Brothers”), the nearly fourteen minute long short film based on the title track (written by songwriter Rod Temperton) to Michael Jackson’s blockbuster album becomes an immediate phenomenon. An homage to the classic horror film genre (particularly the Michael Landon film “I Was A Teenage Werewolf”, and director Landis’ “An American Werewolf In London”), the film stars Jackson with former Playboy model and actress Ola Ray. The films’ dance sequences are choreographed by MJ and famed choreographer Michael Peters (“Beat It”, “Running With The Night”), with make up and prosthetics designed by Oscar winning make up artist Rick Baker. Jackson’s signature red leather jacket is designed by costume designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis, the wife of Thriller’s director. Filmed at a cost of $500,000, the clip takes the art of the music video to another level, becoming the most celebrated and honored in the medium. MTV pays $250,000 for the exclusive rights to air the video, with Showtime paying an additional $300,000 to air it exclusively on their network for a certain period. Its impact is immediately felt, sending the album back to number one over the Christmas holiday, spending another seventeen consecutive weeks at the top of the Top 200. The “Thriller” short film is also released on home video as part of a full length documentary titled “The Making Of Michael Jackson’s Thriller”.  Originally released by Vestron Video, “The Making Of” sets video sales records (selling a total of nine million copies overall) winning a Grammy Award for Best Video Album in 1985. “Thriller” is inducted into the National Film Registry by the Library Of Congress in 2009 for its ongoing cultural and historic significance, making it the first time a music video has received an honor normally reserved for feature length films.

I HAVE BREAKING NEWS

So I was listening to thriller and the lyrics are “cry on the couch all the poet come to life, fix me in 45” and I was like wait poets, when fall out boy talks about the same thing twice it usually means something so I went to I’ve got a dark alley, about pete’s overdose, and it says “the poets are just the kids who didn’t make it” so I was like wait 45
45 SECONDS INTO THE SONG IT SAY THE POETS ARE JUST THE KIDS WHO DIDNT MAKE IT, IN THRILLER IT SAYS CRY ON THE COUCH ALL THE POETS COME TO LIFE, FIX ME IN 45. IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW.
