the movie watcher

Calling all y’all readers and movie-watchers and fans around:

I’m looking for books and movies and stories, even fanfics, where the main character is friends with the ‘monsters’. Unlikely friendships. Teaming up with the ‘bad guys’ and learning that everyone’s the same and character development.

These are my faaaaavorites because it’s always about having a deep emotional connection with your friends (which my antisocial ass likes) instead of just being friends because of proximity and mutual interests (which my antisocial ass is kinda eh about).

Stuff like Trollhunters:

 Don’t Make Me Live Without You… // Nerve 2016

Friendly reminder that Nerve isn’t the only thing that Dave Franco and Emma Roberts worked in together

what she says: I’m fine

what she means: Lionel Shrike is clearly not dead. This is a whole series of movies about deception, misdirection, and reveals, that it’s almost impossible for the director not to throw something in having to do with Dylan’s father. It’s been such a main focus throughout the movies, and I see them trying to use that fact to flip it and surprise the movie watchers. On top of it, at the end of the second movie, the picture of Shrike is fucking House. You don’t just throw that face around. Why would they have a famous actor’s face for a dead, unusable character? They won’t, and it’s such an obvious, underlying rug they’re going to try and pull out from under the audience’s feet that I’m surprised more people haven’t pointed it out.

Youtubers ( and a few significant others ) as horror movie clichés :

Pewdiepie — the guy who came prepared. He probably brought a baseball bat, some flares and a flashlight with extra batteries. He also has a few chocolate bars or granola bars because he’s always hungry. Refuses to use his flashlight until he’s sure they need it because he’s afraid to run out of batteries. 

Probably gets scared by rats.

Worries constantly about his dogs whom he left at home.

Jacksepticeyedelightfully unprepared but the prepared guys sidekick. He’s the wise cracker and makes up the plans which no one is ever sure will work. When the time comes to leave the house, he always thinks it’s a good idea stay away from caves because caves hold bears and bears are dangerous.

Markiplierthe avid horror movie watcher. Constantly suspicious, probably opens doors unnecessarily to make sure nothing is there. Willingly puts himself in danger to reassure himself and everyone that there is nothing to be feared when they all know there is. Probably springs all the traps but never gets hurt.

He’s afraid of bear traps.

Will crawl into Amy’s arms if they pass a bear trap.

God damn bear traps.

CutiepieMarzia The brains. Thinks it was a bad idea to come here in the first place. She probably almost got into a fist fight with her boyfriend about it and he locked the car doors and windows so she couldn’t get out. As reassured that ‘everything will be fine, I’m prepared.’

Amy/Peeblesthe optimist. She’s always smiling but always thinks she hears something; typically talks through her smile because this way no one will panic. The supportive girlfriend. Also known to hold the other girlfriends’ hands because girls must be there for girls and her boyfriend’s not the PDA sort of guy.

Molly & Wade ( Foxtrot44 & LordMinion777 )— the soon to be wedded couple who were convinced to come here because the fear will make their bond stronger. Molly’s prepared to fight, Wade hides behind her. They make a good team though, a Shaggy and Scooby sort of duo ‘cept Molly is brave as hell.

KickThePJ — probably thinks the murderer is a genius because of the expertise of his traps. Voted most likely to be a serial killer in this life or the next but everyone loves him. It has been noted that his fear faces are the absolute best. Is the first to run into the woods and beg everyone else to follow him.

Bob ( Muyskerm )— the cameraman who always runs first. Usually followed by the most delightful of 'fuck YOU’s. Was dragged here by Mark. His wife was against it but OH, WELL. He giggles when afraid which isn’t the best thing to do.

Signe/WiishuThe unafraid. Most likely to hit the killer over the head with a board because she’s super aware of her surroundings. She takes no one’s shit. Also, do not touch her boyfriend, if he has so much as a bruise, she’ll claw your eyes out.

Probably the person to kill the killer.

Also questions,’ if I murder a murderer does that make me a murderer?’

Voted World’s Cutest Potential Murderer.

Lilly Singh & Connor Franta : The lookouts. The pair of friends who came along just to come along but refused to leave the cars. The two who, when it comes down to it, try to call the cops but damn, there’s no service

Too bad, so sad.

 Least you tried.
