this movie is the best fact

batman forever is one of the best batman movies (if not the best) of all time only because

- the sheer amount of tropes in it is astounding to the point that you think it must have been satire, but it isn’t

- “patient apparently suffers from acute obsessional syndrome with potential homicidal styles.”

- the fact that both jim carrey and tommy lee jones seem to be hellbent on out-acting each other so every scene with them gives you violent whiplash 

- the entire thing is homoerotic and fun to watch in a room full of gay people

- everything that’s supposed to be serious is so dramatic that it’s instantly, painfully hilarious, the whole romance subplot is the funniest thing imaginable because it’s not trying to be 

- when they didn’t cut after this guy accidentally trips and falls off the stairs and you see the actor just fall all over everything 

- the costume designs are bizarrely unique and interesting and dynamic and fun to look at

Thoughts on the joker solo movie?

Heh. Guess ya haven’t seen my twitter XD

Ok so I…do not want. I’m sorry. I love J to itty bitty trashy pieces but a solo movie, I just can’t see it working. To me he’s always been a character best used in a supporting role AND I absolutely do not wanna see any origin story. I don’t want J with a past, his character has always been so much more effective when surrounded in mystery, makes it much harder to figure out his motives and makes him a whole lot scarier in my mind. Then of course there’s the fact that I guarantee any origin given to him will involve some kinda hetero romance and, yeah :/ no thanks.

The only glimmer of hope I see is Scorsese’s name in the mix but as far as I know that’s still rumour and no guarantee that he’ll do the character justice. So, I’m sorry but I’m not excited right now. I’m scared.

Y’all seriously need to learn to fact check things you see on here.

1.) it wasn’t Disney who turned down Coco but DREAMWORKS. 
and to those who STILL erroneously insist that Disney/Pixar turned down The Book of Life

2.) People getting mad at this:

Marigolds are traditional to our culture as well as to the holiday, ESPECIALLY in petal form. Not the best example but that’s like getting mad at different Christmas movies for using mistletoe.

3.) “Oh it’s the same plot.” Has anyone looked up the plot for this movie other than outright bashing it from the trailer? 
“The footage, raw though it may be, spun a compelling story about Miguel, a sweet kid who loves music despite the fact that his abuelita banned music long ago, thanks to an ancient drama involving Miguel’s great-great-grandfather—a dashing musician—who walked out on the family. That musician, Miguel discovers at the start of the film, is his town’s most famous son: deceased film star and music supernova Ernesto de la Cruz. On the eve of Día de Muertos, Miguel breaks into de la Cruz’s mausoleum in order to borrow the famous skull guitar that hangs there so that he can enter a talent competition and convince his family to embrace music again. Once Miguel touches the guitar, he becomes something of a living ghost. His family can no longer see him, but Miguel can now see all of his dead ancestors—who look like fantastically decorative skeletons—crossing over a bright bridge made of marigold flower petals from the Land of the Dead. Looking for help and answers, Miguel travels to the Land of the Dead—a dazzlingly vibrant, stacked metropolis inspired by the Mexican city of Guanajuato—himself and sets off an adventure with trickster skeletal companion Hector to find the rest of his family, de la Cruz, and the answer to how he can fix this curse.”  
You know how insistent Pixar is on always making original films. So don’t you think that they would continue that?

4.) “But the white director who thinks he knows everything because he’s been to Mexico.” That’s right, a white person who is not of Mexican/Latinx culture can not truly KNOW our culture simply by visiting it. And Lee Unkrich knows this fact. Which why he assembled a group for the sake of making sure the movie is culturally accurate, rather than him taking on that role

you know, a team of actual latinx. Including someone who was a huge critic of Coco, and is a critic of Disney, Lalo Alcaraz. He is most famously known for his response to the action of Disney attempting to trademark Dia de los Meurtos (which will be our next point). It’s not Alcaraz selling out. It’s him working together with the movie so it’s not just Disney trying to bring in more Latinx fans but rather creating what Unkrich’s true mission: “a love letter to Mexico.” This team along with many other Latinx creatives (like Adrian Molina who was originally just a writer and then promoted to co-director) and a fully latinx cast (again, as insisted by Unkrich), are working together to make it a Latinx piece of media. ( http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2016/12/pixar-coco-gael-garcia-bernal-dia-de-los-muertos-miguel )

5.) We all know and got rightfully angry at Disney for attempting to trademark Dia de los Muertos. This was due to the similar original name the movie had. As expected, it received intense backlash to which Disney quickly revoked the request to trademark. Unkrich was the first to vocalize that this was a mistake. This even leading to that point most likely has to do with him being a white man not of our culture, but this humbling experience is what really knocked that message into him and he began recruiting people like the ones in the above point to make sure that the movie itself is true to the people, culture, and holiday, in ways he himself could never fully grasp.

6.) It’s about the Day of the Dead like The Book of Life. My response to this is easy: look at how many movies are there about Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Valentine’s day, Saint Patrick’s day, etc.

7.) Gutierrez himself doesn’t want it to be a competition but as two wonderful films about one aspect of Latinx that will hopefully lead to more in the future.

I love The Book of Life, and is one of my favorite movies if I’m being honest. When it first came out I was filled with such pride and joy for many reasons. One of course for it being a gorgeously rendered film, but for it being such a positive and beautiful representation and celebration of Mexico. As someone who grew up only seeing white main characters, with people like my family and I as only side characters, it brings me such joy to see more media being produced in which Mexicans are the focus along with our culture (which is agreeably much more diverse than what is being tapped into). We still got a long way to go as Mexico is still only one group of Latinx culture, but we are witnessing the stepping stones of Hollywood beginning to reach out and representing this community by working with people of those cultures. The Book of Life will always have a special place in my heart, but I’m not letting my love of that movie keep me from supporting Latinx creators that are putting out Coco. I’m finally getting the representation that I craved as a kid and loving it.

'Ghost in the Shell': 4 Japanese Actresses Dissect the Movie and Its Whitewashing Twist
THR invited the women to join a no-holds-barred conversation about cultural authenticity and why Japanese nationals fail to understand the race controversy: "People in Japan worship white people."

How did the movie compare with your expectations?

Traci Kato-Kiriyama: It was stunning visually, but emotionally it didn’t draw me in.

Keiko Agena: It was harder to watch than I thought it was gonna be. To get emotionally invested, you have to really care that she needs to find out who she is. But when she finally meets her mom, my gut felt so weird in that moment.

Kato-Kiriyama: That scene was devastating on all levels. It got me because of the emotion of the mother [veteran Japanese actress Kaori Momoi]. She’s really wonderful. That scene should have been beautiful, but Major had nothing in her eyes. Acting-wise, what a missed moment.

Atsuko Okatsuka: I wasn’t aware they were gonna explain the whitewashing. I thought it was just going to be an action film, no explanation, just go with the fact that it’s a future Japan with this robot cop. And then to be like, “Oh shit, I used to be a Japanese woman!” (Laughter) That was against my expectations.

How did you feel when that twist was revealed?

Agena: That was hard, y’all. Hard and awkward.

Ai Yoshihara: Major’s backstory is white people trying to justify the casting.

Okatsuka: And they f—ed up in the process because now it looks even worse. The text at the beginning of the movie explained that Hanka Robotics is making a being that’s the best of human and the best of robotics. For some reason, the best stuff they make happens to be white. Michael Pitt used to be Hideo.

Agena: That was the other cringe-worthy moment, when they called each other by their Japanese names. We’re looking at these beautiful white bodies saying these Japanese names, and it hurt my heart a little bit.

Kato-Kiriyama: It was supposed to be so touching and intimate, and it felt gross. And kind of laugh-worthy at the same time.

Okatsuka: I would have preferred them just using American names. “You used to be Bob.”

ok ok ok ok ok ok can I just have a quick lil moment of your time?

This shit.

So Hunchback is far and away my favorite movie from Disney’s Renaissance, and it always makes me so happy that yes, people seem to appreciate it, people seem to love it, but I’mma go into exactly WHY it’s my favorite, and WHY I think it’s so crucial, and WHY I think it should be required viewing for young boys specifically.

We all know that a huge bulk of the media we’ve grown up with consistently has that one frustrating message:  Being the hero means you’ll get the girl.  Many boys let this mentality bleed into reality.  We have “nice guys,” who feel that their niceness entitles them to romance, when obviously that discredits a female’s personal choice.  We all get this, we all know this, and a lot of us get that it’s a toxic message.

So check out our hero.

He’s an incredibly good person who isn’t conventionally attractive.

Check out our lady.

Super good person, conventionally attractive.

The movie so deliberately builds up Quasi’s hopes.  There’s a whole fucking song about it.

But Esmeralda, who is her own person with her own motivations and preferences, chooses another man, who is also good and also attractive.

A lot of people criticize this aspect of the movie, the fact that Quasi doesn’t get the girl BECAUSE of his appearance.  But my argument?  This is the best damn message a movie could ever send.

Because when things get dicey, when Esmeralda’s life in in danger, when Quasi would be putting his own life on the line, he knows that romance is no longer within the realm of possibility.  He knows he won’t be “getting the girl.”  He knows this, and he allows himself a moment of bitterness, he risks falling prey to the “nice guy” trope, and he almost succumbs.

“She already has her knight in shining armor, and it’s not me.”

BUT THEN HE DOES THE RIGHT THING.

He has NO ulterior motive for saving her life.  NO ulterior motive for opposing the man who raised him.  And he doesn’t know that he’ll get any reward, he knows he could straight up get killed for his actions, and yet he still acts.

And there’s no bitterness. There’s still so, so much love between him and Esmeralda, pure awesome platonic love, and love between him and Phoebus, and just fucking love all around, it’s amazing.

I’ve heard so many people express distaste at Quasi not ending up with Esmerelda.  Like he was cheated out of some kind of reward.  But have they watched the ending?

Does that look like a man cheated of his reward?  Does he look like he “lost” to Phoebus?  No dude, that’s a man who has everything he ever wanted, and that’s also a man who didn’t “get the girl.”

If that’s not an essential message for young boys to hear, I don’t know what is.

So, last night I rewatched The Way He Looks (Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho), and of the million and one reasons why everyone should watch this movie, here are a few:

This is Gabriel (left) and Leo (right)

  • It’s on netflix, which most of you probably have, so it’s accessible
  • How many queer stories are there that feature a protagonist with a disability? Not many, but this one does! Leo is blind, he’s the main character, and I feel they handled his disability well (this is coming from a non-disabled person, though, so feel free to disagree)
  • It’s a pretty stereotypical indie teen romance movie, but the queer aspect already makes it 100x more interesting
  • a realistic parent-child relationship, with bonus awesome grandma
  • there’s no “omg, am I gay???” freak out. In fact, both characters are pretty much 100% ok with being into each other, and they’re main worry is “i don’t know if they like me back, but i know i want to stay friends with them at least, what do i do??” with a tiny sprinkling of jealousy, cause, well, stereotypical teen romance
  • a very beautiful and loving girl-boy friendship with lots of casual, platonic intimacy
  • there’s nothing super angsty?? like, no death or super homophobic parents/classmates or having to hide that they’re queer. it’s honestly such a feel-good movie???
  • what homophobia there is, it comes as teasing and there are never any hints of anything turning violent, and in fact, at one point, when the bully character is teasing Gabriel and Leo for being boyfriends, Leo shows him that they are, in fact, real-life boyfriends, and the bully’s friends start teasing him for trying to make fun of them when they’re actually boyfriends
  • the girl best friend isn’t narratively pushed to the side when the new boy (love interest) comes in. In fact, her (Giovana) and Leo’s friendship is shown to be just as important as Leo and Gabriel’s relationship
  • everything works out and you’re left with a lovely, sweet, happy ending that’s honestly just so nice to see in a young queer romance??? 
  • I really love this movie, and there’s also a short-film!! on youtube that I recommend, too!

johanna mason from the hunger games is a lesbian and it’s important yall know this fact

  • friend: have you seen the new spider-man movie?
  • inner me: Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) has a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes and is a part of Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man: Homecoming was directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Robert Downey Junior, Marisa Tomei, and many more lovely actors and actresses, especially many actors and actresses of color, which have not had a fair amount of exposure in Marvel films. It has a run-time of 133 minutes and despite being the sixth Spider-Man movie in recent times and the third reboot, it competes with Spider-Man (2002) for the best Spider-Man movie. It is also unique in the fact that it is the first Spider-Man movie that Marvel shares the rights to, instead of it being created only by Sony Pictures. It is based off the comics by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, the former of which makes a cameo in the movie. It currently has a domestic box office total of $280+ million dollars and $640+ million dollars worldwide, making it the top grossing Spider-Man movie since Spider-Man (2002) starring Tobey McGuire, which made a lifetime gross of only about $404 million dollars.
  • me: yeah i've seen it, it's pretty good i guess

i do not mean to be dramatic but the fact that all our work to get an actual goodbye to Sense8 paid off and we’re getting a 2 hour movie next year to finish it off is without question the best thing that has ever happened to me, the best news i have ever been given and i am crying blessed tears on this beautiful thursday evening

Day One Hundred and Thirty-Seven

-Within the first fifteen minutes of my shift, I rang up both a metal fidget spinner with worryingly sharp angles and a children’s book about a zoo, the cover of which featured a boy dabbing. I did not expect to live in an era of such meme integration in our education and warfare.

-“I’m not comfortable with sharp turns,” a girl told her mother. “In fact, my sharp turns are quite wide for most people. If I’m not careful, I’ll never get my driver’s license.” I am proud of her, as it is always best to be aware of one’s shortcomings, and, as she is nine years old, she will have plenty of time to improve upon them.

-A man came by whose shirt displayed a bible passage quoting Jesus as telling his followers to sell their clothing to buy assault rifles. I expect the movie adaptation of this alternate reality scripture in theaters next summer, as The Crime Of The Passion Of The Christ is certain to be a box office hit.

-A mother explained that her seven week-old baby was wailing and squealing because she was hungry. The next woman came up once they had moved on and admitted in a hushed voice, “I make the same noises when I’m hungry.” This won from me an outburst of genuine, uproarious laughter, the likes of which the the average “I found everything… and then some!” could never dream of achieving.

-Today has been an endless parade of pocket-sized pooches and this was precisely what I needed.

-The Armed Apostle returned half an hour after his first purchase, buying only a drink this time. He tried to claim his twin brother had just been in, purchased too much, and forgotten his drink. I did not buy this for one moment. There is no way on this earth that the man before me is anything less than one of a kind.

-A boy told his mother that all she had to give his was a lifetime supply of Tic Tacs, an iPad, and an all-access pass to McDonald’s. At first blush, I thought this child amusing, to be so easily satisfied. Upon further reflection, however, I found a truth in myself. That truth is that if I had these things and nothing else, I would still consider my needs all fulfilled.

-Groot. That’s it. He was amazing.

-Mantis and Drax’s incredibly weird but endearing platonic relationship that I hope stays platonic forever because it’s too good.

-Someone must tell Mantis she’s beautiful every day this girl needs it.

-Teach Mantis to smile and love herself !!!

-Big Sister Gamora must take Mantis under her wing and teach her not to take shit from anyone.

The Best Line In Thor: Ragnarok's Trailer Came From A Make-A-Wish Kid
Thor: Ragnarok looks chock full of fantastic dialogue and one-liners, but the arguably the film's best quip came from a Make-A-Wish kid who visited the set during production.

From the moment Thor (Chris Hemsworth) looked at gladiator Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)and smiled with delight in the first Thor: Ragnarok teaser, fans instantly knew that this franchise was about to change in a major way. Director Taika Waititi has taken the God of Thunder into a considerably more offbeat direction with his upcoming threequel, and Thor’s line “We know each other! He’s a friend from work!” sells that idea better than any other. That said, it turns out that the line was not in the script, and it actually came from a Make-A-Wish kid who visited the set. Chris Hemsworth explained:

We had a young kid, a Make-A-Wish kid on set that day. In between the takes I was talking with him, kind-of going back and forth. And he goes, ‘You know, you should say, he’s a friend from work!’ So that young man actually came up with it.

You have to imagine that the kid will look back on Thor: Ragnarok as one of his favorite Marvel movies of all time. Not only did he get to visit the set of the film, but he also had a hand in coming up with one of its best lines. It’s probably the most GIF-worthy moment from the entire first Ragnarok teaser, and it has handily served as one of the jokes that likely helped the movie’s first trailer break online recordsback in April.

It’s not hard to understand why Taika Waititi liked to keep things loose and improvisational on his Thor: Ragnarok set – in fact, 95% of the film’s dialogue is reportedly improv. The upcoming Marvel epic is his first real foray into the world of blockbuster filmmaking, and his previous movies (particularly What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople) similarly relied on heavy improvisation to deliver some of their best and most memorable lines. Beyond that, Taika Waititi’s “Team Thor” mockumentaries have also allowed Chris Hemsworth unprecedented freedom to dive into his comedic chops and provide some off-the-cuff jokes. The guy knows offbeat improv, so this particular suggestion probably caught his interest almost immediately.

We are not surprised by Chris Hemsworth’s remarks to EW, as the folks at Marvel have always had a knack for engaging with their younger fans and creating a sense of immersion. Whether it’s Robert Downey Jr. delivering a bionic arm to a young fan as Tony Stark, or Chris Pratt and Chris Evans taking the time to see sick kids in hospitals, these fictional heroes seem to have taken every opportunity to show their fans that they truly care. That’s what being a hero is all about, right?

Eugene’s Missing Boot

Since it has been shaped as the movie that made it into the theaters, Disney has loved the gag of Eugene losing his boot.

It started with the cut scene where he was beaten up by Rapunzel’s hair.

Continued with the scene that was never meant for the final picture, where Eugene theatrically calls for Rapunzel to let down her hair.

In the final production, Maximus pulled it right off his foot!

In fact, they liked the gag so much, it made the cover of the comic version of the movie!

But to me, the very best aspect is the newest addition: Varian has Eugene’s boot in his collection!

Did you see it?

Varian has found and kept Eugene’s missing boot. XD

WONDER WOMAN: MORE THAN WONDERFUL

Ever since the first trailer came out, I could not stop waiting for this movie. Finally, on June 1st, it arrived in cinemas.

And even without a night of sleep, I pulled my closest friends to the theater to go see it. What I found? A movie that did not disappoint. Most people always disagree with me when I say I am a DC fan. Seriously? Why do they always have to compare to Marvel? Can’t we all just appreciate the superhero movies equally?

 With that being said, let’s take a look at everything I loved about Wonder Woman.

*Warning: Spoilers ahead. *

1. LITTLE DIANA

Bless this beautiful, beautiful child. She did a great job of playing a young Diana. I think the audience gave a collective, “Awww” when she appeared. With her doing cute little kicks and punches, it just added to the overall cuteness. But then she gives you this smirk and you know that the Princess of the Amazons is also a stubborn, sassy little girl who knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. EPIC FIGHT SCENES

The trailer alone showed some great potential in the fight department, but actually seeing everything on the big screen gives you this whole new feeling! It’s the “holy-shit- I- can’t- breathe” feeling. The kind where you stare with eyes wide open because you’re afraid that if you blink, you’re gonna miss something cool. The first few minutes of the movie, with the amazon warriors fighting off Germans on the shores of Themyscira (thank you, Steve) was amazing! We also see Queen Hippolyta and Antiope in action. (side note: my fave part would have to be her jumping onto a make shift shield that Steve grabbed and killing a sniper, taking down the whole top of the church doing so).

Bruce got nothing on that lasso.

3. Steve Trevor

I love Chris Pine. I have loved him ever since he came out in “Princess Diaries 2” and “Just My Luck”, when I was still a teenager in high school. And then he went and became Captain Kirk in Star Trek, and my fangirl heart could not help but love him more. Now, he has proven again how great he is by playing the charming, fearless, and disobedient Captain Steve Trevor. 

I’m so glad he chose to do this over Green Lantern! He was great when they were using the Lasso of Truth on him, but the funniest part for me was when Diana dropped by while he was taking a bath.

Diana: Are you a prime example of the average man? (or something like that)

Steve: No, I’m above average.

4. Gal Gadot

Unlike most people, I had nothing against Gal (or her allegedly small boobs *insert snort*) when she was first cast as Wonder Woman. Honestly, I was more concerned with how the story would go, but damn. She proved everyone wrong. She played the role perfectly. Perfectly. I am not joking. I cannot imagine anyone else who would’ve done a spectacular job as her. (And take note, she was pregnant whilst shooting this).

She could be fierce, emotional, humorous. She lighted up the screen, man. Figuratively and literally. And yes, she rocked that costume! Ugh that costume! At first, I was skeptical. After all, I am a big fun of the comics, and I sometimes hate it when they change these iconic things about characters (e.g. Barry Allen not being blonde in the TV series or the movie). But I came to love it. It showed more of her Amazonian roots than her iconic outfit in the animated series before.

5. No Man’s Land

This was the best scene/ segment of the movie for me. I had goosebumps watching her climb up to No Man’s Land. Add that to the fact that Steve tells her the soldiers have been there for nearly a year and haven’t gain an inch, yet she just strolls up there like is a fcking field of lilies and is dodging bullets better than The Matrix. My heart. My fangirl heart.

 Everything about it was so right. You have these bleak, grey landscape and yet Wonder Woman is wearing such vibrant colors. Then there are these slow- motion sequence where she’s blocking the bullets like some sort of freaking Jedi. And her shield seems to like glow while she’s getting hit with a machine gun and and and she’s dodging those bombs like they’re nothing. Nothingggggg. Then everyone else follows her and charges at the enemies. And I’m just sitting there like:
