okay so this post is wrong but what the heck it’s a Tumblr post, right, it’s mostly a joke, only it’s so perfectly echoing an idea I’ve seen elsewhere too, from actual paid critics and academic critiques, that Hugo “wasn’t writing for emotional teenagers”, that he’d be horrified by fandom, that he was too High and Erudite for the likes of screaming theater kids and emotional teenagers
Victor Hugo knew what fandom was. And he absolutely LOVED it.
It’s a little weird that this line is in the final shooting script, because I’m pretty sure this was said to be improvisation by Martin. If you look closely at Ben during this scene you can see him turning away to hide his laughter. I can’t find the source anymore, but if somebody has it, please let me know.
That line in the movie - that was never written in the script. That’s an improv line from Ben. So many of the best moments in movie history were captured, or just found, you know - were real, and were improvised… It blows my mind to think that the catchphrase of our movie was improvised by Ben Mendelsohn on set one day.

When I was in primary school, I was given a five-line script in Anansi the Spider Man, and I decided to just improv and make it my own. For a second I felt like Kevin Hart, because everyone was laughing. I just continued to do it. Why not?
listen…i’m a lil emo…a little emotional….because i can’t get over how much henrik loves and cares about his character?? like he portrayed him with such care and attention to details and talent and he made a very complex character like even come to life and like, we all miss even but it’s obvious he misses him too? god knows how many hours he spent reading the script and practicing lines and studying the character and it was a big part of his life, something he was truly passionate about, for a couple of months and up until two weeks ago he, like us, had something to look forward to, watching the show and seeing how the story actually turned out on screen. he had to say goodbye to the set and the show (for now) and you can tell he loved loved the experience and!! i hope he’ll enjoy many more moments on the skam set because i love even and also because henrik deserves it
I really enjoy coming up with designs for characters who have one or no lines of dialogue - the extras. When they pop up in a script, they’re so incidental that the character designers haven’t drawn them yet. Sometimes my drawings end up making it to modeling and then onto the screen. The design sense in Moana is on the naturalistic side of the caricature spectrum, so many of my more exaggerated and odd characters didn’t make the cut (even though the point of those sequences was to lighten up the movie). I crammed a bunch of my favorites on this image. Enjoy.
honestly the level of intimacy shown in this scene is so great that it’s almost too much? and you can feel it in particular when you simply listen to them say the words. you can hardly hear isak’s words, which makes them sound all the more intimate because it makes you ask yourself “am i actually supposed to hear this? am i supposed to hear those words that are whispered so quietly you can barely make out what he’s saying?” it makes you ask yourself these questions although the answer is obviously yes, because rationally you know that this is fiction, you know it’s a script and it’s a line that was written and that is meant to be heard. but still, it sounds so intimate that listening to it kind of makes you feel like you’re eavesdropping, like you’re a stranger in a room witnessing these two share a private moment. but that’s exactly what makes this show so brilliant and unique; it takes the viewer and brings them closer to the characters, and it’s a closeness that we’re not used to experience when watching characters on a screen. sure, tv shows and movies sometimes bring us close, but this close? it’s not really something i recall experiencing before
Yesterday I was on club penguin for like half an hour (along with a shameless hour and a half on psa missions) and in that time I witnessed
–two anti-trump protests
–one pro-trump protest
–someone saying the entire bee movie script line for line
–a penguin named Sandwich Man discussing the meaning of existence, turning invisible, then saying “I must leave. Farewell, my pupils.”
“You’re going to have to get married one day, Victor.”
Victor looked up from his dinner at the sound of his name. His mother was looking at him sternly, waiting for a reply. Victor gently put his fork down with a sigh, he knew this conversation was going to come up eventually.
“Mother I’ve told you time and time again, I’m not ready for marriage just yet. I’m waiting for the right person to come along.” Victor said in the rehearsed calm voice he tended to use around his stubborn mother.
