they would make an excellent cast for a movie


Doctor Strange- Stephen Strange

The first establishment of true “magic” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Strange follows the tale of surgeon-turned-sorcerer Stephen Strange as he learns of the mystic arts and worlds beyond our own in an attempt to heal his shattered hands and return to his place of prestige as one of the world’s greatest surgeons. In the end, Stephen finds a higher calling than himself, and becomes one of the world’s foremost sorcerers, protecting the realm of earth against those who would do it harm. 

Despite Cumberbatch, cast in the titular role, looking a lot like Stephen’s comic incarnation, a lot of character work was done attempting to make the “mystic” nature of Stephen’s costume work in the context of the modern ‘realistic’ super-hero. Excellent work was done defining the general silhouette he maintains with his cloak (by far the most outlandish element of his costume) only part-way through the movie, choosing to slowly transition his outfit from worn-down street clothes into monk’s clothing into his final outfit. Making the Sorcerer Supreme seem grounded in reality is a real magic trick all its own.

anonymous asked:

hello, what do you think of Rosario Dawson as a posible live-action Ahsoka?she's a fan,and it seems excited about the idea of being Ahsoka, i mean, how many times we see a actor/actress being a big fan of a not so well know character and wantin to bring it to life in a movie? there are are very few, what do you think? :3

Hi there! I think she’d make an excellent Ahsoka, and it’s always an amazing bonus when the actor is also a big fan. X3 It’s so rare. Man, I’d love to see her in a Star Wars film.

….Although if I could cast Ahsoka myself, Dawson would probably be my second choice… I’d pick Meagan Good as first choice.

TED Talk- Diversity in The Media

Hi, My Name is Michael, and about 20 days from now, on May 11th 2015, I will be giving a TEDx talk at my school about the HUGE need for representation of women and minorities in the media, and why it is so important for people to see themselves on screen. I go to a mostly white school, and I really would like to help open up my classmates minds. I am in the research phase right now and I really want my talk to have a personal component. As a gay black kid, I do have experience to draw from, but it would be excellent if I had first-hand accounts/stories from others who can speak about the personal impact of watching, following and or playing as characters that share the same race/sexual orientation/gender identity /culture as them, or the personal Impact of a lack of accurate casting in movies/TV shows/books/video games, etc…

If you are willing to share, and have an experience that you would like to contribute to the talk, you can send it to me in an email, ( or message me on tumblr. Your submission can be written, or a short audio clip or video just make sure you include your name(just first name is fine) (City/state/country is optional) If you do contribute, please do so before May 11th, so I can work your experience into my talk.
Thanks a ton! 😃😉


One day, if I find a project that I’m passionate about and feel like I could do a good job of, I would love to direct it.” - Maisie Williams for CNN’s ‘Ones to Watch’ on the set of The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea [x]


Just arrived from the cinema: HOLY GLORIOUS CRAP!

It was WAY more than what I went prepared to see. I thought it’d be a somewhat cheese thing, with nostalgia bits to make it more endearing, which would be really enjoyable because of my appreciation for the universe lore and whatnot, but I was so frigging WRONG!

This was a spectacular movie in itself /O n O\ 

Regardless of the fact that it does pay excellent homage to the older saga, taking what was best from there in terms of world-building, plots and playful winks to the fans in the audience, it’s also really excellent because of the new things.

The cast is EXCELLENT, the plot works, the COMEDY! I’m SO glad Abrams went for a WAY smarter comedy than any of its predecessors, and the visual effects are kajsflskjdSLKJGNDLFKGJNLFGRGFHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

It all works SO. VERY. WELL.

I am having such a cinematographic happy right now i u i

Not an Archival Valentine per se, but posting this as a special request from a colleague who thought this photo would make an excellent Valentine’s Day post…
