this movie is honest love

It was one of the best experiences of my life. It was amazing. It was a real challenge. I think the movie’s gonna be great. I think he’s amazing. It was pretty amazing to be involved in the whole project. I’m a massive fan of his movies in general. I really loved being the new guy, to be honest. I loved kinda being so far out from my comfort zone. It felt really good to kinda have no idea what I was doing for a little bit.

Treasure the experience. Dreams fade away after you wake up.

Three years later, and I’m STILL not over the naked emotion in Veronica’s face during the pillar scene.

I have this habit of pulling back from scenes and trying to view them from other perspectives.  What if it was my first viewing?  What if I was anti-L/V?  How would I minimize this moment?  

But there’s no possible way to view this scene as merely a culmination of restrained lust.  If that was the case, she wouldn’t look so shattered.  She wouldn’t be practically in tears. 

She has the expression of somebody who’s experiencing something world-changing, and allowing it to happen.  Not shutting down her vulnerability.    

The only possible interpretation I can make is, that (despite all odds, years, and continents), movie canon Veronica LOVES Logan, is being honest with herself about said love, and probably always knew she was meant to end up here. 

Excuse me while I curl up in a ball and sob.  

My thoughts on BatB 2017 - Part 4: What I Loved

Part 1: The Songs | Part 2: The Ending | Part 3: The New Scenes | Part 4: What I Loved | Part 5: Things That Bothered Me

Ok, to be honest, I loved most of the movie, but here are some things I especially appreciated :).

* MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD *

Dan Stevens as the Beast
Dan Stevens is to die for in this movie. He is amazing in all his scenes - even when his face is all CGI and you can only hear his voice and see his eyes. After the backslash the CGI Beast received (some reviewers even called him “too much of a distraction”) I feared the worst but I actually think that the CGI is very well done - especially the close-ups - and his face is amazingly expressive, which (I believe) could not be achieved with prosthetics/make-up.

● Emma Watson as Belle
I actually liked Emma a lot and I thoroughly enjoyed her performance. Her singing voice is sweet, though not very powerful, but as I’ve stated earlier, I really do not think that Belle (as a character) has to be an accomplished singer (unlike e.g. Ariel) and personally, I do not care whether her voice (or anyone else’s for that matter) was autotuned or not. She sounds pretty good to my untrained ears.

The prologue

“Shall I join you for a dinner this evening?” - “Sorry, not this evening.” - “Busy?” - “No…”

I really loved the Beast’s portrayal as a well-educated person who forgot the joy reading brings and finds his sense of humour. I am sure there are some things that could be problematic regarding the change of the Beast’s character, but I will leave it to other reviewers. Overall, I was very happy with the changes and I also loved that he is still that melodramatic dork we all fell in love with in the animation and in the Broadway musical. Also, I am super biased because I loved Dan Stevens’s performance so much.

LumiereXPlumette and CadenzaXGarderobe loving relationships. I wouldn’t mind a spin-off about these ships :).

● Instrumental version of “Home” from the Broadway musical plays two times during the movie: first when Belle is shown to her new room and later when Madame Garderobe helps her to dress for the ball.

Belle slipping under the elaborate gown Mme. Garderobe put on her.

Belle planning her escape and making an improvised rope.

The stakes are higher for both the Beast and the servants. Similarly to the Broadway version, the servants are slowly becoming more and more like lifeless objects as the curse progresses. And the castle crumbles a bit every time the rose loses its petal. So, if the curse is not broken, the Beast is doomed to remain in the crumbling castle and completely alone.

All the book references and book quotes. I wouldn’t mind if there were more :).

Beast throwing a giant snowball at Belle. (Also, I am pretty sure Belle got her payback for this the next winter XD)

“I set her free. I am sorry I couldn’t do the same for all of you.“
THIS. This right here is such an amazing moment that I’ve been sorely missing in the animation and the musical. The Beast acknowledging that he fucked up his servants’ lives as well and he actually apologizes for that. #character development

Gaston shooting the Beast with a gun (but actually having a crossbow prepared as a plan B as well).

Belle destroying Gaston’s arrows. And while we’re at it, her line “Where is he?!” (aka “WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY BOYFRIEND YOU ASSHOLE?!”) was SO VERY COOL.

“I am not a beast.”

Gaston actually recharging his gun (although it does take him impossibly short amount of time given the type of the gun).

The coat-stand/Chateau saving Chip’s life. I cry every time I see it.

● Mrs. Potts’s name is revealed to be Beatrice :D Much Ado About Nothing, anyone?

“How would you feel about growing a beard?” - *the Prince laughs and growls*

I’ve stated before that I am not ecstatic about this exchange as I would prefer if she asked his name or made a book reference or something but…the backslash this dialogue received is so unbelievable and so unfair. Some people interpret it as “oh no, she’s trying to change him already!” Like: hello? This is Belle we’re talking about, she would never ever mean it like that. And some fans go as far as to claim that it’s a confirmation of Belle being a furry? Are you kidding me?! I think that this conclusion tells more about the people who make it than the scene itself.

Belle is simply teasing him, testing his reaction, wanting to know if behind a different exterior he is still the man she fell in love with. Which is actually pretty sweet.

(Besides, did nobody notice Lumiere literally smouldering after he kissed Plummete? So they made the fact that there were some side-effects of the curse left in them canon.)

Tina Goldstein *sits on the floor and places hands on lap, looking up at you and ready for the long opinion on Tina* ♥️

OF COURSE. BUCKLE YOUR SEATBELTS EVERYONE!

Where do I even BEGIN with Tina Goldstein?? I’ve written post after post about her. I could probably write a book just about how much I love her.

Okay, so, in case it’s not obvious - Tina Goldstein is my favourite character; she’s my favourite in the entire movie, she’s my favourite in ANY movie to be honest. I’ve said time and time again that I love Tina because I see so much of myself in her: older sister, a bit “not quite there” in her body, “gawky”, insecurity lying beneath the surface, mostly law-abiding but breaks the rules if it’s for a good reason, awkward….I relate to her so much it hurts.

I love that Tina is a strong female character; even when she’s “lost her groove”, she still manages to be badass by doing what she feels is necessary. I love that she’s both strong AND expresses how she feels, like crying when Credence is “killed” or when Newt is about to leave. She’s strong and brave but also incredibly human. Just think: young girls going to the cinema will see Tina and perhaps start to look up to her, just like they did with Hermione in Harry Potter. Young girls who don’t feel particularly feminine in their interests or perhaps don’t feel as pretty, or if they feel like they’re gawky/awkward…they will hopefully see Tina and be like “oh wow, she’s so brave - I want to be like her!” Perhaps that is wishful thinking on my part but…

Anyway, back to my opinion on Tina…She lost her parents when she was young, and she’s had to look after her little sister. She’s protected Credence even when she was demoted for doing it. She wants to do the right thing to protect her fellow wizards. Tina is a damn good person, she has a lot of heart, and she deserves more love.

Is Tina perfect? No, not at all - she’s flawed but that’s why she’s an amazing character. She makes mistakes, she apologizes (“I’m so sorry about your creatures, Mr Scamander”) and learns from the mistake. She goes from “like an extermination guide” to actually helping Newt catch his creatures when she realizes she was wrong for turning him in - she does what she knows is the right thing.

Some more things:

  • Tina is like an awkward puppy in that scene where she gives Newt and Jacob hot cocoa. Just look at her - she’s so awkward, I love it.
  • There’s not really a “beauty” moment - usually there’s a moment where the female character has a makeover and “wow, she’s good-looking for the rest of the film, she’s changed for the better”. No, there’s not really that with Tina; after the Blind Pig, she changes back into her trousers and blouse. Even though she wears a skirt on the docks at the end, it’s a dark inconspicuous colour - it’s not flashy or beautiful, it’s a pretty simple skirt.
  • Adding onto that previous point, there’s no big moment where Tina is dolled up and “made pretty” which makes Newt  - her love interest - go “oh wow she’s hot”. It’s gradual and over the course of the film, and it’s not based on her appearance (though she Is very pretty anyway) - it’s because he sees somewhat of a kindred spirit in her, because he admires who she is as a person and what she stands for (protecting Credence, for example).
  • Her wand, according to Katherine Waterston, adds to her insecurity: her wand is “not so pretty” (again, Katherine), it’s a plain one with no embellishments. Bearing in mind that the “wand choses the wizard/witch”, I can imagine that 11-year-old Tina was probably a bit put out when she got this wand instead of a “special” looking one. It probably adds to the idea that Tina is worried she won’t reach her full potential with MACUSA/as an Auror - that she’s not particularly accomplished (yet).

So…this has been a long post. To conclude: Tina is my favourite and I will protect her forever. Tina deserves more love and respect in this fandom.

Just to reiterate because I can never say it enough: Tina Goldstein is my favourite character and I love her.

Somewhere there is an alternate universe where Logan was a moderately good movie with a minimal understanding of the driving themes of its source material.

And in such a universe I imagine the movie might have ended with 20 or so children trudging along a road, exhausted. The camera pans up to show a sign that reads “USA CANADA BORDER”. The kids slowly raise their heads, to see five people standing across the road, waiting for them. And as the kids stumble forward, Alpha Flight welcomes Logan’s family to Canada.

And I have so many questions like what, are humans incapable of reproducing??? Why do they have to wait for the storks and what if like people randomly write letters as a PRANK broitsjustaprank and they end up with a human baby to look after what. AlSO Why do the babies have cool hair i want blue hair too but i guess none of this movie makes sense but it’s so incredibly FEEL GOOD it makes me happy ;;;;;;;; ive not felt like this in a while that’s so nice oh gosh
