this movie is so incredibly beautiful

Bellabestiason - @celinedion has revealed that initially did not want to participate in the soundtrack of the new real action movie (@beautyandthebeast) sung the pop version of “How does a moment lasts forever”: “30 years later, they came back to me I saw the [new] movie, it’s great, but there was something inside me that was shaking a little and said "And what do you think, would you consider singing this new song of Beauty and the Beast, 30 years later, would it be honest? ’ And I thought, ‘Uh, I have to listen to it again, because I have to be professional.’ To be honest with you, I told them, 'It’s so hard for me to compromise now, because I felt that [I was] cheating the first Beauty and the Beast.’ I realized it was an incredible privilege again. Beauty and the Beast has brought me to where I am today. I came back home, I heard her … I talked to Rene [my deceased husband] and she said: 'You should.’ "She is also very proud of the new version by Ariana Grande and John Legend

My Thought on Moana

I cried so many times during this movie you wouldnt believe. Here is an unorganized list of why this movie was beautiful to me in every way.

1. Auli'i is my friend. I love her to death and hearing her speak and sing in this movie was not only surreal but incredibly emotional for me. Think of it as a proud mother but x10.

2. They brought up our lost art of wayfinding. Wayfinding is a genuinely lost art that has only recent begun again thanks to the Hokule'a. This is so important, and to see that Moana was so excited and shocked to find out her people were voyagers was truly amazing because I feel the exact same way. “Why did we stop?”

3. Maui. Maui is a myth that I grew up hearing about in betime stories. Everything that they talked about I had already known, and to see someone who you grew up learning about come to life in such a beautiful way was truly amazing. Not to mention I had completely forgotten that Maui didnt come from a God and a Mortal, he was given his power from the gods, but was born of mortal parents. I had forgoten my own mo'olelo.

4. Gramma Tala. Tala was the only one to support Moana’s call to the ocean. Many Polynesians feel this call to the ocean. It surrounds us, and it brings life. If theres a feeling I can relate to most its my need to be on the water, which is why I paddle. Also, theway they showed Tala’s aumakua (spirit animal) sent chills down my spine it was beautiful.

5. Te Fiti. In Hawaiian Te Fiti is Papa, mother earth. Watching Papa come to life after Te Ka was silenced made me cry. Papa gave me my islands, gave me my culture, and gave me my people. I love her. Also watching her lay back town to form her island was amazing because that’s also a big part of many mo'olelo- that gods and godesses lay down to form mountains and islands, and are in an eternal slumber beneath us.

6. The music. The music was beautiful. And having songs fully or partially written in Samoan(?) was amazing to listen to. To have disney publish a movie with a soundtrack with untranslated Polynesian in it was amazing of them.

7. The animation of hula. There wasn’t much of it, but the hula was beautiful and again made me so fucking happy when I saw it.

Not rly a reason but heres a nice tip: Moana doesn’t simply mean ocean, we could use Kai for that. Kai is the part of the ocean you can see. Moana is the deep sea. The sea that we voyage on.

There’s really a lot lot more but this is all I got for now yw here u go~

Sherlock is such a beautiful character. He loves dogs and bees and dancing and kids. He dresses up and makes jokes and tries so, so hard to get off drugs. He helps people who need it and cares so deeply that it hurts him and he loves john watson more than anything in the world. He loves the stars and science and romance and flowers. He never is on the offence until attacked. He has a mask that can oh so easily be stripped away because he will do anything to make John happy. He pretends to hate james bond movies. He plays board games. He forgets to eat. He gets lonely and sad until the moment the man who is the sun to him walks into the room. He cries and scrapbooks and plays the violin and wanted to be a pirate and makes his own job. He’s incredibly human.

I keep seeing this “dark sherlock” stuff going around my dash and it erases the beautiful character development he’s gone through. That isn’t Sherlock. It’s what you’d like him to be.

It’s not your regular girl-and-boy-swap-bodies-and-hilarity-ensues movie. No. This is something above and far apart from anything you will ever watch.

It shows a simple connection between two people that transcends time and leaps over even the most adverse obstacles like Death. 

The animation and the blend of nature/city scenes are heartrendingly gorgeous. The plot and the building of the story will blow you away. 

The characters are so simple and relatable, yet each one has something special that they leave behind with you at the end of the journey. 

Don’t miss this one. Trust me. It’s worth it.

A bunch of inventors. All three Violet Baudelaire, from the books, from the movie, and from the upcoming Netflix show! Please don’t repost without permission and don’t steal <3

I can’t wait! The trailer looks incredibly awesome!!

I’m very excited about the new things that are going to be in the netflix adaptation… because they are all actual things of the story even if they aren’t in the books, because Daniel himself is writting the script!! This is going to be like when the Special Paperback books with extra illustrations came out!!! This show is going to be so good!! The baudelaires are beautiful, Olaf looks scary as F, which he didn’t do in the movie. And all the new content we are going to enjoy thanks to Daniel, things that went uncleared at the end of the books and always let me that bitter sweet end.

People seems scared about the accouracy to the books, first of all a book and a tvshow are not the same, things need to be changed in orther to make every episode more interesting. Second, yeah the show will include new content, which is awesome because is new content coming from the author of the books, he has the story in his head, he knows it better than anyone. And third, DANIEL mother freaking awesome HANDLER aka LEMONY SNICKET himself is writing the script!!! Tell me how many shows are doing secret websites for the fans to discover hidden in the trailers???? I mean THIS IS AWESOME you guys!!!

I’ve been a big fan of this books for over 12 years now, and I know this is going to be HUGE! and all I can say issss that after the complete ASOUE netflix show I want an “All The Wrong Questions Netflix” show pretty please!!!!! *O*

You mentioned awhile back that you had seen La La Land, and I absolutely LOVED that movie so much! What personally was your favorite part of the movie? I loved the cinematography, as well as the message and ongoing color scheme if you caught that c:

I could not handle the cinematography. It was so incredibly beautiful and well shot. As a person who wanted to be a cinematographer at one point, I loved it so so so much

What Do I Want?

I want him. I want all of him. I want what he doesn’t show the rest of the world. I want him beyond close doors. I want him whole heartedly. I want him when he wakes up in the morning, when he doesn’t feel like getting up and going to work. I want him when we’re cuddling on the couch watching tv and not being able to decide what show or movie to watch. I want him when we argue over pizza or Chinese food.  I want him at the end of the day, coming home from work,greeted with kisses and “How was your day?”.  I want him when I’m cooking and he hugs me from behind and kisses my head. I want him when he teases me about how much shorter I am than him, making me smack his arm causing him to continue laughing at me. I want him because he’s so incredibly beautiful when he laughs so hard causing his eyes to squint and his dimples to become more visible. I want him when he’s frustrated and too stubborn to listen. I want him when we’re fighting, yelling at each other from the top of our lungs. I want him when we’re intimate, our body and soul connected as one. I want him when he randomly tells me how much he loves me. I want him when he’s sleeping, an arm wrapped around my waist keeping me so close with light snores escaping his mouth.  But most of all, I want him every second of every day, because I know that this man is it for me. Because “Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same”.

When my mother was at home at weekends, we stayed with her as much as possible, which frequently meant we watched her dress and make herself up. Next to her closet there was a huge bathroom with magenta marble and mirrors everywhere.

She’d twirl her hair up into pincurls that she’d use to pull her face tighter, then she’d put on her make-up base with a sponge. Then she applied eye make-up and false lashes, so she didn’t need mascara, but there was lots of eyeliner.

Next came lipstick and rouge and powder - great puffs of glittering clouds of powder, followed by hair, which was a big deal, getting the wig on right.

Then came the earrings, then she’d step into her clothes, and then came her stockings and her tiny shoes. When she was finished, her Debbie Reynolds movie-star accent got stronger, her posture got better and she looked incredibly beautiful.

Undressing was also a process my brother and I observed. First we’d watch as she removed her make-up with a wash cloth, then she’d have a bubble bath.

Debbie Reynolds would slowly return to being our mother. The coach was once more a pumpkin, the footmen went back to being mice.

so my favourite things about doctor strange

random people from my college dorm:

-Alaskan dude named “Booch”

-Booch’s girlfriend who maybe wasn’t supposed to be living there

-Guy who was an extra in Master and Commander and constantly talked about how he was a Movie Star

-Scary far-right Christian girl who complained a lot about how Republicans are persecuted when people disagree with them

-Extremely outspoken Dawkins-style atheist girl (in adjacent room)

-Guy who was failing all his classes but building incredibly beautiful handmade stereo speakers, and eventually he started a business doing that, so, like, good for him

Reasons You Should Watch the Disney Fairies Movies
  • Talented Cast
  • Feel-good messages
  • Racially diverse characters
  • Strong female leads each with their own personality and character. They’re not just all copies of each other!
  • The animals are adorable
  • The Neverbeast made me cry, and the ending wasn’t a “everyone is happy” ending. It was real, and I think that’s so important for kids to learn
  • The whole feel of the movies are magical. It reminds you of when you were a child
  • ‘The Pirate Fairy’ has Tom Hiddleston singing in it
  • Pixie Hollow is beautiful (the Winter area is my favourite)
  • Gives more insight into Tinkerbell

Seriously, they’re not just “kids movies”. They’re actually incredible, and they’re some of my favourite movies. They deserve more recognition than they get.

“My favorite movie in the past, I don’t know how many years, was Scarlett Johansson in [Under The Skin]. I love that film, that score was incredible and [Jonathan Glazer] is such a great filmmaker. He’s one of my favorites… I was so impressed. I felt like it was something I hadn’t seen before, beautiful visually and emotionally. I don’t think I’ve seen a movie since then that I’ve been as rattled by.”

- Chloë Sevigny on Under The Skin (Jonathan Glazer, 2013)

It’s not about propaganda, it’s not about taking sides, it’s about human beings trying to really struggle with issues of identity and morality and truth. She represents what this country is about. The way this country works is we all participate in this democracy and that we show up for the process, she did that. After the hearings, the number of women who ran for public office skyrocketed. Though, so many people were inspired to step into the political sphere. The take away for me is how truly courageous she is.  

Confirmation: Kerry Washington discusses her character Anita Hill (HBO Films)

I had a dream last night that I was Megamind

and it was E X C E L L E N T.

It was pre-movie; I was in the middle of an evil plot that was outside the Evil Lair and Roxanne was there (!!!) and tied up, only it was really windy out and she said she hadn’t gotten her hair cut in a while, so it was a little long. 

And it kept blowing in her face, so she finally got annoyed enough with it that she told me to get a pair of bobby pins out of her purse and pin it back for her.

(!!!!!)

aaaaaaahhhhhhh and I brushed her hair back from her face and I ALMOST DIED OF HAPPINESS, LET ME TELL YOU.

Also, it is INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT to pin someone’s hair for them when you have never had hair of your own, so I was S T R U G G L I N G, but Roxanne thought it was funny and she laughed (!!!)

And I finally got her hair pinned out of her face, and she jokingly asked if she looked funny and I was already pretty flustered so I was like “no no; you look really pretty!”

and she raised her eyebrows at me and said I must rate my skills as a hairdresser pretty high and I started babbling about how she always looked pretty and it was EXCRUCIATINGLY EMBARRASSING OH MY EVIL GODS.

But Roxanne seemed to think that was funny, too, which (!!!! ??? !!!!)

And then Metro Man showed up, only I’d been so busy with Roxanne that I hadn’t actually even set up the evil plot, so I decided to pretend that there…wasn’t an evil plot. And we were still technically on the Evil Lair grounds, and Metro Man isn’t supposed to attack there unless there’s an evil plot happening.

But Metro Man was all suspicious, so I was like “no, really, nothing happening here” only he insisted that Roxanne was there, and barged past me to look for her and I was like ‘shit’, but when we got to where she had been tied up, she wasn’t there.

(she must have escaped while I was gone)

So Metro Man left and I was like “well, this day is a bust, might as well take a nap,” so I went to my bedroom and took off my shirt and lay down on the bed and okay, maybe I wasn’t exactly intending on napping, per se, but luckily I didn’t do much more than think about…that…because 

THE CLOSET DOOR OPENED AND

ROXANNE POPPED OUT

And I screamed and launched myself off the bed.

When Roxanne finally stopped laughing at that, she told me she’d gotten lost looking for the exit after she escaped, and had hidden in the closet. 

She also added “now you know how it feels when people break into your house and jump out at you, Megamind.”

I was like “I HAVE NEVER JUMPED OUT OF YOUR BEDROOM CLOSET AT YOU, MISS RITCHI; THAT WAS UNCALLED FOR.”

And she was leaning up against the doorframe of the closet and I was on the floor in front of her, trying to find my shirt so I could put it on, only it was all inside out and I was flustered because Roxanne (!!!) was in my bedroom (!!!) and she was looking at me with this–expression of amused fondness and it was really difficult to try to function with that happening–

She was teasing me about screaming, which she never does, when I woke up.

…and I just realized, typing this out, that she could have easily waited for me to fall asleep before sneaking out to find the exit, but she deliberately came out of the closet while I was still awake, so she must have wanted to–see me–talk to me–interact with me more–

DAMN IT, WHY DID THE DREAM HAVE TO END THERE?!?

KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS IS BEAUTIFUL

How did Armie come on board?

Luca Guadagnino: I saw him in “The Social Network,” like everybody, and then cultivated my passion for Armie with the movies he made afterwards. I always found him a very sophisticated actor, with a great range. So when I came to think of Oliver, because everybody swoons for this boy in the movie, I thought we could use that quality, his incredible charm. But also we could play with it. Not just have the beautiful boy but someone who could create irony and have plenty of range.

Yes, but how did you get him?

That’s a funny story. He’s very well-mannered. When I asked him through his agent, he was going to pass. But then we spoke, and at the end of the conversation, he said to me: “I’m in!”….Then the agent called him and said: “What’s going on – you were going to pass?” And Armie said: “Well, the conversation was too good. I couldn’t pass.”
