this movie is just too good

anonymous asked:

I think it's so wrong of them to make a Han solo movie. I wouldn't even want a leia movie cause I KNOW that it'll fall short. Sure, it could be good, but it'd never be Carrie or Harrison or even Mark playing them again and I don't want another actor playing them. But that's just my opinion, idk... honestly, they should steer clear of the original trio, leave them alone they've been through enough.

Yeah, anything to do with the OT would be a stretch anyway – unless they included young Luke Skywalker or young Leia Organa in a movie (for example, an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie where we see Luke as a kid). It won’t ruin the character’s image. But it’s too late for that, so…

thewinterroza  asked:

What about in the case of Izzy from shadowhunters? I cos played the character before she was played by a Latina actress, but now is it not ok to cosplay her, even if the character was payed by a white actress in the movie and in the books is basically white? I'm not trying to be rude I just wanna know your opinion because I've been thinking about this for a while.

This is actually best case scenario. Because you absolutely can keep cosplaying them. But now a whole other group of people can feel comfortable now too.

A canon white character is now ALSO getting representation as a POC! This is good!! that means that it’s a character that latinx people don’t have to be afraid of trying out because they have something to do now too to ease into things.

But I know I won't be home, and you'll be on your own

okay this is one day late but who cares it’s just one day, and i am not sure if i should be happy of posting this - still posting because i can’t do simbar today and it wouldn’t be nice to be two days late, would it?

DAY 2: “The team needs you, but I’m not sure if I do”

(title kygo - it ain’t me)

But I know I won’t be home, and you’ll be on your own

Simón gets into his apartment in amazing mood. He has everything planned for today – he will take Ambar for amazing dinner and after they will cuddle on their couch and watch some sappy movie which will be too sappy for her, but if it’s started let it be. Just like good, old times.

~Guys, guuuys...

I’ve just learnt that Ben Affleck:

- has taught himself Arabic

- speaks Spanish and French too

- is so good at doing impressions that when he did one to Morgan Freeman, it was so accurate Freeman told him, “You ever do that again, I’ll kill you”

- won $356,000 by winning the California State Poker Championships in June 2004 - defeating some of the best poker players in the world in the process

- filmed four movies simultaneously in 2001: Pearl Harbor, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Changing Lanes, and The Sum of All Fears 

- began an intense two-hour a day workout regime the day after he was cast as Batman

- received a lifetime ban from playing blackjack at the Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Casino due to his ‘counting cards’ skills


Which tells me:

1. He’s fucking smart. I mean, he can pick up/learn languages pretty well (one of which is Arabic, Damian are you listening and he majored in Middle Eastern Affairs in college) and he is a boss at poker/blackjack.

2. He’s a workaholic. Look, I’ve never made a film (or even a short video) in my entire life, but he did 4 in one year at the same time and I bet he’s done similar workloads throughout his career. Also, see: two-hour a day workout regime for more evidence.

3. He can do good enough impressions to freak the fuck out of God™.


Ergo

= Ben Affleck is well on his way to being Ultimate Batman

All Hail the mighty Bat!

ignore me creepy internet researching the fuck out of him to get my hands on this info. i needed it to defend myself from absolutely no one. fucking fight me

Someone pausing still frames of SU, intentionally gathering the least attractive ones and using it as Concrete Evidence that the show is “terrible” tells me one thing and one thing only:

-how much someone knows jackshit about animation because you can literally pause any piece of Western animation, no matter how highly regarded, and find “bad” or “funny looking” frames. it’s also easy to intentionally leave out all the good qualities of said show to fit your half-baked argument just because you don’t personally like it and need to make it look as bad as possible

following this logic, by default, I guess all these shows and movies are terrible too

chato checking in with waylon  (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

So, just came back from watching Moana (finally) and YOOOOOOOO!!!!! What the fuck is that animation?! So damn gorgeous!! The songs are awesome as hell too!! That Mad Max reference! That chicken! That shiny crab! LOVED IT!!

I saw Moana today, and there was so very much to love about it.  But I think I’m just going to talk about one thing for now.  And that’s the “princess upgrade.”  (Well, that’s what I’m calling it.)

Moana has the usual Disney heroine trope of “I want more than being a princess/royalty/whatever!”  (It’s a good trope for a fairy tale.)  But with a lot of Disney princesses, there’s really nothing for them to DO as princesses.  They exist, and that’s good and right for the kingdom, your prince will come and evil will be defeated, the end.  There’s no actual ruling or governance or anything you have to be trained for, don’t be silly!

Moana is the daughter of a chief, and the main point her father uses to keep her at home and out of trouble is saying, “hey, you’re gonna be chief someday, here are your people, you’ve got to take care of them!”  And the next montage shows her…doing exactly that.  We see her making decisions in day-to-day life, talking to her people, doing her job to keep the island and her people happy and prosperous.  We see her, in short, being trained to be a leader.  Her birth position is both a job and a serious responsibility that has to be performed right to keep things good.  Destiny, of course, has some extra things in mind for her, but those things are also in the best interest of her people.  They’re tasks that need to be done, and she was the person picked for the job.

That was EXTREMELY refreshing to see.  And that alone would have made the movie worth it to me, but again, there was SO MUCH MORE TO LOVE.

My thoughts through out "The Lego Batman Movie"
  • Me: Wow this is really cool
  • Me: Pretty sure those pilots are gay
  • Me: The Joker's pretty cool
  • Me: Okay is it just me or is Joker being really gay
  • Me: Are him and batman really talking about their relationship?
  • Me: So far the plot of this movie is Joker trying to get batman's attention, and how batman has nice abs.
  • Me: ha Ironman sucks
  • Me: it's good to see Green Lanterns still annoying.
  • Me: Poor Batman
  • Me: Love all these ab references
  • Me: Don't worry joker I have flab too
  • Me: Good to see Batman and Joker together
  • Me: Wow. I ship it
The angels of supernatural

Castiel, the angel who fell for the humans.
Gabriel, the angel who just wanted peace.
Lucifer, the angel who loved his father too much.
Gadreel, the angel who was blamed.
Anna, the angel who just wanted to feel something.
Micheal, the angel who was a good soldier.
And Balthazar, the angel who unsunk the titanic because he hated the movie.

okay so like feel free to disagree but Tina Goldstein is so underrated?? like she’s just trying to keep her job and follow the rules because if she doesn’t then she and Queenie have no income?? she’s just trying to follow the law because she wants to be an auror again but then in the end she helped Newt save New York because it was the right thing to do, and all she wants is to do the right thing??

My 2016 Horror Movies List

Not a great year for horror movies. A lot of decent stuff, but just a few flicks I would really recommend. So this year list may includes all I saw from last time I did one, even if released in late 2015, plus something I wouldn’t exactly describe as an horror movie, but was too good to be left out. Enjoy:

  • The Witch - One of the best movies I’ve seen lately. Plus, goats are soo cool. Go see it. 
  • Under The Shadow - Have you ever seen an Iranian horror movies set in the 80s?
  • I Am Not A Serial Killer -  Low budget “monster” movie!
  • 10 Cloverfield Lane -  I’d love this to have a sequel…
  • Don’t Breathe - Not perfect, still absolutely enjoyable. 
  • Green Room - Nazi punks fuck off!
  • The Conjouring 2 -  Have you seen the tv show about the Enfield case? This one is way better.

If you looked at the posters on the top of the post, you probably noticed there is one more film I still have to talk about. “Lo chiamavano Jeeg Robot” is not an horror. It’s the first Italian super heroes movie (well, the first good one for sure), and it’s better you can imagine. It’s emotional, it’s violent, and funny. It’s so rare as an Italian citizen I have something to be proud about that is not food related, that I can’t miss the chance to mention it here. Let me know if you like it. 

And if you need more, some other 2016 (more or less) horror movies still worth to watch:

  • Southbound
  • Holidays
  • Trash Fire
  • The Neighbor
  • Ouija 2
  • 31
  • Pet
  • The Monster
  • The Wailing
  • Train To Busan
  • Siren
  • Anguish
  • Baskin
  • Emelie
  • Shelley
  • Viral
  • Lights Out
  • Phobia
  • The Good Neighbor 
  • The Autopsy Of Jane Doe
  • Blair Witch

Let me know what you think!

Trolls post-movie headcanons that won’t leave me alone:


  • Branch sneaking away during the party celebrating the Bergens and Tolls finding peace and just having a good, honest, cry becuase holy hell he looked like he needed it.

  • Poppy finding him and at first being like ‘oh no what’s wrong aren’t you happy?’ but realising that he is happy and ending up just holding his hand while he gets all of the emotions he’s been bottling up for years out. 

  • Poppy and Branch leading an excursion back to the Troll village to help everyone get what’s left of their stuff. Poppy helping Branch clean out his bunker and finding all of the invites he kept and being so touched that she tears up. Branch trying to brush it off ‘cause it’s pretty embarrassing but she ends up hugging him and he just shrugs and accepts it. (Branch absolutely grabbing his stash of romantic poetry and hiding it before Poppy can find it because he is 800 different levels of not ready to have that conversation.)

  • Poppy being almost too physically affectionate with Branch because he’s been deprived of it for so long. Branch pretending he’s annoyed but actually not minding so much. (As long as it’s Poppy anyway.)

  • Branch and Poppy getting into fights sometimes becuase Poppy only ever gives everything 110% and while Branch wants to turn over a new leaf he’s been alone for a LONG time and he’s still nervous and embarrassed and sometimes it is just too much and Poppy doesn’t get that right away. Poppy totally learning to give Branch the space he needs and loving him even though he is still different from everyone.

  • Branch still having issues about the Bergens and being a bit overzealous about keeping everyone safe, becuase he can’t quite forget how he lost his grandma, and can’t always remember that it really wasn’t his fault. Branch still hoarding supplies a little and getting nervous when any of the Bergens move too quickly or surprise him, especially around Poppy. 

  • Branch trying his hardest to be silly and happy and loud again, and half the time it comes out weird or mistimed or awkward. The others think it’s funny, but only a few of them notice the cute, love filled gaze Poppy gives him when he’s doing his best.

  • Bridget and Gristle have a baby girl and name her Poppy. (And it turns out, in one on one situations, Branch is really good with kids.)

  •  I fully believe that baby Trolls grow on trees. Some fancy magic mumbo jumbo, idk exactly. Lets just say that Branch gets a little too into guarding his and Poppy’s little sprout. (”Branch you can’t just stay out here all night.” “But Poppy what if something happens?!” “The only thing that’s going to happen is you dying of hypothermia.” “You’re right we should get some blankets out here, it’s way too cold.” “Branch stop.”)

Since we’re not good at taking selfies or good photographs of cool things, here’s a silly little fan art piece dedicated to the film release of Trolls! Inspired by the beautiful artwork of the film, and it’s awesome artists and filmmakers! (We want to eat the art of book too) It’s such a heartwarming, fun film, you just want to give hugs and want to eat the movie…but that might be a bad idea! Go see it! #fanart #trolls #dreamworkstrolls

Making videos in 2011

Suddenly remembered how I used to make video in like 2011

It was a mess

Whenever I showed a still image in Movie Maker, the colors came out distorted. Reds became Magenta. Yellow turned dark yellow. Blue became baby Blue.

Which is why early Pan Drawings were blue. Since it was the least distorted.

I recorded with a crummy PS3 USB mic. Often it would make click sounds if I moved my head too much. Often I had to record and rerecord 1 sentence at a time.

Windows Movie Maker could only have 1 audio track to edit at a time. So I had to render the video with no background music, import that into Windows Movie Maker, and add music on top.

Eventually got a cheap install CD for Pinacle Studio video editing. It wasn’t very good for my 2006 PC laptop. It would render a minute of video and say “Not enough RAM sorry :/” and just give me part of a video. Used that process until 2013 when I got Premire Pro and a “hand me down” Mac.

I pieced together the parts in Windows Movie Maker

The preview showing what I edited would always lag and I had to often guess what I was looking at.

To get footage of Powerpuff Girls or Ed Edd n Eddy, I would use Netflix snail mail to get 1 disk at time to rip them. Or Screen capture  them off PS3 Netflix streaming and hope the footage didn’t get all blury from my slow internet. Now theres iTunes rips for that stuff

My USB Snowball mic was grabage. Had to constantly manually alter the sound levels so everything was even. XLR mics like my AT2020 and Audiobox don’t need that.

Did all that for like 3 or 4 years

But now thankfully the process is far more streamlined and I know how to handle many of the editing problems far more efficiently.


“...hallucination check, Ted.”

Ted the Animator: “No, no… I’m seein’ this, too.”

Carl the Animator: “Ok, good, ‘cause the storyboards seem very clear that KISS starts glowing neon colors.”

Ted the Animator: “…and then start flying, apparently.”

Carl the Animator: “This… this was not a turn I was expecting the movie to take, but one I’m totally on board for.”

Ted the Animator: “I like how they couldn’t think of a visual flying-power-effect-thingy for the green cat guy, so they just didn’t give him one.”

Carl the Animator: “He’s a magical cat person. He prolly just, like, jumps long distances.”

Ted the Animator: “The animation doesn’t show that. Come on, Carl, visual storytelling.’

Carl the Animator: “Well, ok, how would you show that a rock ‘n’ roll band member cat person with green cosmic superpowers had used them to jump incredibly far towards a spinning teacups carnival ride for the purpose of saving a talking dog?”

Ted the Animator: “I’d ha–… ok, that may be the greatest sentence I’ve ever heard.”

Carl the Animator: “You know it.”

Ted the Animator: “…let’s just move on before our brains start melting.”

Carl the Animator: “Speaking of which, this guy turns into a fire-breathing dinosaur person.”

Ted the Animator: “And the other guy becomes some kind of cat thing, as we previously established.”

Carl the Animator: “And don’t forget the coupla frames of closeup on his face when he jumps towards the camera.”

Ted the Animator: “…wow.”

Carl the Animator: “According to fans, this sequence is *identical* to some of the transformation scenes in Sailor Moon.” 

Ted the Animator: “Ah, cool, I didn’t kn–… wait, how exactly have fans seen this? We’re looking at production storyboards!”

Carl the Animator: "…”

Ted the Animator: “Carl….”

Carl the Animator: “Ok, fine, I might have tweeted a few things out.”

Ted the Animator: “You’re lucky no one cares enough to make us sign NDAs, y’know.”

Carl the Animator: “…so, moving along from shaky legal territory, KISS has a big fight with the bad guy, and Shaggy & Scooby almost puke after getting off the spinning teacups ride.”

Ted the Animator:All the best action scenes end with our heroes nearly barfing on top of their friend.”

Carl the Animator: “Then, there’s a fade transition to… uh….”

Carl the Animator: “…um…”

Ted the Animator: “…is that a hospital? Wait, are they DEAD?

Carl the Animator: “I doubt it, but if so, man that got dark in a hurry.”

Ted the Animator: “I guess the spinning teacups were too much for them.”

Carl the Animator: “This is what happens if you eat too many sweets before going on the rides, kids.”
