Because of the time and circumstances of their world, Therese and Carol have to very carefully navigate their relationship. A lot remains unspoken out of fear and unknown, so small moments of physical contact become big moments. Todd Haynes uses this, making sure that the weight of each of these moments are very present in the film, which allows the moments to not only progress the relationship of Carol and Therese, but they become visual progression of the story in the film, telling the audience much more than dialogue could in such little time.
Rather lovely visuals, fantastic lighting effects and expressive animation.
The campy, hilarious anti-hero that is Angus Scattergood.
Really good music like REALLY good and not just the main theme the whole score is hella good and the guitar oh my god the guitar.
Honestly the whole world design is really fun and simple, very reminiscent of a level in an old video game in a good way. And everything works and has reasoning and makes sense it was obviously well thought out.
Charming characters?? Bodi is a sweetheart and deserves nothing but good things??? I loved Darma she is so nice and jaded but she never lets it make her mean??? And the ‘evil’ wolves were genuinely funny I loved them almost as much as the heroes.
The running gag of Sheep being forgetful is pretty funny and never gets old.
You cannot convince me that the two wolves(Skozz and Riff) who are tasked with capturing Bodi are not boyfriends ok they are cute and dating and I love them.
Same director as Surf’s Up and that movie is a blessing so???
The actual mean characters gets what’s comin’ to them.
No potty humor?? Or problematic jokes??? Just all around good humor that isn’t at the expense of anyone and puns? DO YOU KNOW HOW RARE THAT IS????
Bodi has some tough lessons to learn but it never makes him like mean or anything and in the end the world was just as good as he always believe it to be and I love that?????
There is a sheep who just walks around in a towel the whole movie.
A sick end guitar battle with fucking fantastic visual effects and music.
A good message about not letting where you come from define you but ALSO never forgetting your roots and the people who made you who you are?? Which was surprisingly deep???
“Can we get a RED cord for the RED phone, please?”
Really sweet and surprisingly down-to-earth father-son relationship.
A goat character has a spiritual experience while staring at a french fry.
Lewis Black and J. K. Simmons and Mae Whitman like hot damn good voice talent? And it really shows.
Fucking Fleetwood Yak.
Did I mention the music because holy hell the MUSIC.
I was smiling the whole time the whole thing was so charming ugh bless.
Honestly it was just a good movie and it really shows that the people who worked on it really cared about it and loved it and made it the best they could and that alone should be enough to convince you to see it so SEE IT.
all jokes aside yall know that the great wall is made almost entirely by chinese creators w the exception of matt damon, whose character was written explicitly to be an outsider in the hopes of bringing an otherwise chinese film to western theaters, and yall are planning to go see it in order to support them, right?
Okay. I have been crying for about two hours because of this film, and I don’t even have feelings, so I don’t really understand what’s going on. It was one of the purest things I’ve seen this year and it made 2016 less shitty. This movie inspired me so much and now I feel ready to face 2017. Sing Street is beautiful, funny, sad, real, and wow, just go and watch it.
THE ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK IS AMAZING, if you don’t want to watch the film that’s fine (whatever, you’re just missing a great movie), but please listen to the soundtrack because it’s almost perfect. Personally, this is my favorite one.
The actors are amazing and the characters are really well developed, I now officially have a platonic crush on each one of them. I didn’t know Irish people were that cute.
You can really notice that it’s well written, the dialogues are natural and there aren’t any boring scenes, I think the pace of this film is perfect. You know when you don’t want a movie to end? Yes, exactly.
The main theme is music, but the moral is that you have to follow your dreams. Okay, that sounded terrible, but really, follow your dreams, because if you love what you do it means you’re good at it so you’re going to make it. I loved how the characters went through different musical styles before finding their own, and that’s it, if you keep doing your thing, everything will work out at the end.
A/N: I am overwhelmed that my Jeff imagine has more than 500 notes and I can’t thank you, guys, enough. Expect more Jeff imagines and if you have some requests, my ask box is always open. Please, because I need more Jeff Atkins imagines. HE SURELY DESERVED BETTER!

“(Y/N), Jeff is here!” Your brother Alex shouted as he knocked on your bedroom door. You excitedly opened the door as it was your ever first date with a guy. “You look amazing.” He complimented you as he examined your look.
“Thanks, Lex.” You kissed him on his cheek as you felt little more confident with your brother’s compliment.
“Truth.” He smiled as you both went downstairs. He has always been an overprotective brother and it sometimes annoyed you, because he was worse than your parents when it came to you and boys.
“Sweet.” You said as you opened the front door. You saw a nervous Jeff waiting for you outside and you couldn’t help but laugh at him. “Hey Jeff!”
“Hey, (Y/N)! Hey, Alex!” He politely greeted and you flashed him a sweet smile, although you wanted to give him a tight hug for your contentment.
“Atkins, not later that 10 pm. Okay?” Your brother strictly imposed and you saw Jeff gulping as he became more nervous.
“Alex, I am not 12 anymore.” You shot him a death glare and he rolled his eyes.
“Alright, 11 pm and that’s final!” He crossed his arm and the only thing you did was to huff.
“Alex Standall!” You protested.
“It’s perfectly fine, (Y/N). Alex, she’ll be home by 11 pm.” Jeff courteously assured your bigger brother and you just shook your head. His nervousness seemed to fade away.
“Good! Take care of her if you don’t want a baseball bat stuck up in your ass.” Alex sassily warned and you dragged Jeff away from the front yard as you were fed up by your brother’s behaviour. He crossed the line.
“Fuck off, Alex.” You rolled your eyes and he just laughed because he knew that he successfully annoyed you.
“Enjoy!” He winked at you and Jeff and he went inside the house, closing the front door.
“Asshole.” You shouted and Jeff just laughed because he found your relationship with your brother amazing. “Don’t mind him, Jeff.”
“It’s alright.” He smiled at you as you started to walk towards the movie theatre. “He’s perfectly got the point.” He was nervous when he first saw you, but then he felt comfortable, luckily.
“But we have time just until 11 pm.” You fussed. “He’s annoying when he acts like this.”
“He loves you and he wants the best for you, (Y/N).” Jeff explained as he knew how boys are made of. “But don’t worry because I am not failing your brother.” Some of them are jerks and they would just break girls’ hearts, but Jeff wasn’t one of them. He was an angel and a gentleman.
“Oh my God, I can’t believe that you are defending my brother! I am remembering you that you are going out on a date with me and not with that pain in the ass.” You rolled your eyes, but you let out a loud laugh as you heard Jeff laughing.
“Oh, right!” He agreed and you just laughed even more. “But the first rule is court the family first.” He winked at you as he wrapped his arms around your shoulder. In no time, you arrived at the movie theatre and you stood in front of the ticket booth with Jeff.
“What film would you like to watch?” Jeff asked you as he was looking at the movie posters.
“30 ways to die!” You happily exclaimed and he smiled at you. It was a horror film, but you didn’t want to choose the romantic one because you thought that it was so cliché.
“Two tickets for 30 ways to die is it then.” He handed the money to the clerk and he got the two tickets.
“Enjoy!” The clerk exclaimed enthusiastically.
“Thank you.” He thanked politely. It amazes you how educated Jeff is. He was grown well by his parents. He was not one of those asshole jocks at school and you liked him for that.
“Thank you.” You gratefully thanked him.
“Not a biggie!” He caressed your cheek with his thumb and then you proceeded inside the movie theatre. There you saw Clay and Hannah as they were talking of their stuffs while working.
“Oh hey!” Clay greeted the two of you and he did his usual handshake with Jeff. “I bet you are watching Never Say Goodbye tonight.”
“Wrong guess, Jensen!” You winked at him and you noticed Jeff corrugating his forehead. Was he jealous? “Hey Hannah!”
“Hi there!” She flashed you her sweetest smile and you thought that she was really beautiful.
“How much is it?” Jeff asked as he was about to take his billfold out.
“Everything’s on me tonight! Enjoy your date, love birds!” Clay teased the two of you and Jeff just shook his head for his best friend’s attitude.
“See you later!” Hannah winked at me. “Enjoy!”
“Thank you so much.” You both smiled at your friends and went to the screening room. You were just right in time and the film has started.
From the beginning of the film, you already regretted that you chose a horror film. You were so scared and you never shouted like that before. Luckily, there was Jeff who hugged you in every scary scene, even though he risked getting his tympanum broken. But in short, he was hugging you the whole time.
You didn’t mind it at first, but then you loved the feeling of having his arms wrapped around your shoulders, so you went with it.
“Great film, isn’t it?” Jeff winked at you as the lights turned on after the film. “Let’s watch another horror movie?”
“Cut it off, Atkins!” You laughed as you pretended to be annoyed at him. “But thank you.”
“You’re always welcome, (Y/N).” He wrapped his arms around your shoulders and you walked out of the room.
“How was the film?” Clay asked in a teasing tone and you just shook your head.
“Great.” Jeff gave two thumbs up and a wink in response. Hannah and Clay giggled as they surely heard the screams coming from the room, but you shook it off.
“Have a good night, guys.” Clay sweetly said.
“Good night.” You and Jeff said in unison. You noticed Jeff trying not to smile as Clay was silently teasing him.
“Bring her home before her curfew or Alex will hate you forever.” Hannah warned and you all laughed at the thought of the curfew.
“We better get going then.” Jeff seriously said this time and you said your goodbyes to Hannah and Clay.
You started to walk way back home and, fortunately, you still had time before the curfew. Alex was serious about it and you had no guts to violate his rules or you knew that he would be worse than he already was.
“Thank you once again, Jeff.” You said as you reached your block. “I had fun, even if it wasn’t obvious.”
“I had fun too, thank you.” He slightly giggled as he thanked you and you found him cute and sexy.
There was a moment of silence and you both found yourselves leaning in for a good night kiss.
The thought of kissing Jeff’s lips made your heart skip every beat of it. You shared a sweet kiss while he caressed your cheek and you loved it, although it had a popcorn taste, but it soon ended because your nosey brother opened the door and you both had to act normal.
“Exact 11 pm. Great job, Jeff.” Alex smiled sincerely as he hid his phone that served him to see the time. “No more curfew next time.”
“Finally!” You rejoiced because of what your brother had said and he just let out a laugh.
“Idiot.” He playfully insulted you. “Let’s go?”
“Yes, sir!” You nodded as you flashed Jeff a smile once again. “See you on Monday?”
“See you on Monday.” Jeff smiled widely as he thought of the kiss that you had shared. You were still blushing and feeling nervous because of it, but you managed to not get caught by your brother.
“Bye!” You said in unison and you watched him as he walked back home.
“So, how was the kiss?” Alex quickly asked as you entered the house. There he was, being nosey once again.
“Oh my God, Alex!” You covered your face as you felt the burning sensation for one more time. You felt uncomfortable talking of these things with your big brother.
“He better not hurts you or the baseball bat!” He winked at you and you both laughed loudly. You finally understood that he was just protecting you and Jeff was doing the right thing to court your family first before you.
“Thank you, asshole.” You hugged your dorky brother to thank him sincerely.
“No problem.” He hugged you back and gave you a kiss on your forehead while he played with your hair.
You were happy that your first date with Jeff went well and, of course, you were grateful to have Alex as your brother, even though he was so overprotective and vexatious.
