this movie was actually really good!

Honestly despite me not liking award shows since they’re mainly pointless to me and i think most of it’s a joke (with the Best Animated Feature award especially being the biggest unsurprising joke of them all and a joke to the animation industry since it’s so crazy Disney biased and the Academy literally don’t even try with it or care about animation at all) Zootopia winning that award a good thing

This win’s obviously not surprising, BUT It’s like, the ONLY time I can think of where a Disney win in that category was actually well-earned and made sense, the movie was great and commented on a topical and serious issue well, really not a negative thing I can think of for that movie, it’s fantastic, for me, it really DID feel like one of the best movies this year, like top 3 best animated features, easily.

To see an animated and even dramatic anti-racism movie win in THAT category? It’s good, and hopefully sends a good message.

And hopefully this win will allow Disney to deviate from their crazy predictable formula more, try different stuff and not stay in their little bubble for fear of losing awards or box office revenue. Zootopia was already a really different shift for Disney’s animated features that to see it do well (i mean it won an Oscar and made a billion fucking dollars) is actually really fucking cool, congrats to the makers.

Hey, I'm seeing a lot of hate for LA LA land. I really haven't seen it so I'm sort of confused? Did something happen in the movie or something? Sorry if this is really random I just have no idea lol.

I haven’t seen La La Land either, and honestly my opinion has become so biased against it that odds are I wouldn’t enjoy it much as many others have seemed to at this point. Heard it was an amazing movie from all who saw it. Some claim it was life changingly good.

The problem is…there’s nothing truly groundbreaking about this movie in any way, from everything I’ve seen about. It’s just another musical. And musicals are awesome, I love them. But it’s pure fluff that’s been winning and being praised/rewarded over movies that are actually significant and relevant to a lot of marginalized people. On top of that, everyone who works on La La Land keeps praising the studios and people who made it for ‘taking such a risk’. Like seriously? A risk? On a musical?? That’s not a risk. That’s not special. Like I get it was all original work, and that’s awesome, but it shouldn’t be winning over movies like Moonlight or Hidden Figures or Fences. It really shouldn’t and the fact that Emma Stone (not blaming her for winning of course) is winning against people like Ruth Negga (who starred in Loving, another culturally and historically important movie) is upsetting and questionable.

Same, I was really gunning for Kubo, or at the very least Moana, which I felt had a lot of things riding on it with the representation and casting people of actual polynesian descent in it, Zootopia was good but I felt like Moana made a bigger impact being it was a princess movie that actually had a different princess in it.

Yeah :/ It was basically a tie between Zootopia and Moana for who would take the award home, and I wasn’t surprised Zootopia got it. I’m personally still on the fence which I like better (zootopia or moana), though I love Moana more and more every time I watch it and UGH MY FEARLESS LOVELY OCEAN PRINCESS I’m obsessed with this era of awesome princesses being funny and badass and AHHH -buries myself in kubo and moana blurays-

anonymous asked:

i agree moana is really good and deserved more awards but zootopia did an excellent job explaining systematic racism in a children's film so im not too mad?

I like both and Zootopia is actually my favorite newer Disney movie for that reason, but I’m still so annoyed. I’m furious about the original song award.

anonymous asked:

i definitely like. had a good time watching LLL but it wasn't incredible? i thought it was very visually pretty and i liked the music but i wasn't emotionally invested except for when they did the montage of them imagining what their life could've been. i think it's a good movie but it's not amazing idk

me exactly. this is EXACTLY how I felt. and before and during the movie I had no idea that black people where the inventors of Jazz? I actually went and did research after the movie and was like really??????? why did it star a white dude???? why was john legend not the lead I mean his role was completely unnecessary???

  3. What’s the worst adaptation of something you love you’ve ever seen? The live action Avatar the Last Airbender Movie…..

ok so imaishi pulled a switcheroo on us all and made the first half of the episode almost unbearably animated but the second half animated beautifully. classic imaishi. tho idk if he actually directed it, i think he just boarded it.

either way it might be on equal footing with the broom race episode as one of my favorites, akko’s psychotic determination shines through here, cool climax, i really liked the cute little drive-in movie part… its still kinda depressing how much of a fuckup akko still is and how vitriolic her friendship with sucy is… but they at least try to end on a good note with that and have some emotional “aw they really do care about each other” moments…. this show is just so weirdly mean spirited about it tho

I saw Vaiana (Moana) today and it was so nice! I’m just gonna speak about it very generally not to spoil anyone even accidentally.

I really liked the story and how there was no unnecessary clutter to distract you from the actually important things. The animation was gorgeous and I the soundtrack was so nice. (Musicals aside I rather mean the instrumentals and the tunes, but even the musical songs were nice.) I also liked the humour a lot. It was’t so forcefully shat out as it usually is in this kind of movies but actually felt natural and funny. Vaiana is great, I adore her. But her grandma is the best, hands down. I haven’t related with a fictional character so much in ages. 

Shortly, it’s a lovely movie, go see it!

Why Kiki’s Delivery Service is important for flailing 20-somethings like myself and why this movie makes me cry happy tears:

-Kiki goes out into the world and realizes how bad some people can be, but she still tries to do good
-She knows she’s wants to be a helpful witch but she doesn’t really know what to do with her witchy powers
-She literally loses her powers after becoming very depressed with this knowledge and feeling like she’s not a good enough person or a good enough witch
-She realizes that she may not be doing anything “great” or “cool” like other witches but she’s actually really successful because she uses her powers to help people and start her own small business
-Miyazaki is trying to show us that because Kiki is kind and helpful and stays true to herself then that is what makes her incredibly successful
-Sometimes we need reminders in our life that we can be successful in many ways

I don’t understand people’s beef with CGI Tarkin.

Some of y’all seem to have a problem with CGI Tarkin in the new Star Wars movie Rogue One but let’s get some things straight:

The man has been dead for at least 22 years, so there’s no way to bring him on screen, right? “Why not recast him? They did the same with Mon Mothma.”

They sure did and they sure did recast Tarkin before in Episode III, but nobody talks about this abomination for good reason.

The good news was it was only a cameo from a distance in the film.

It’s unfortunate though because Wayne Pygram is actually a really good actor. I just wish they did a better make-up job.

So that was an example of recast. 

People argue that the CGI looks fake and looks better in movies like James Cameron’s Avatar but here’s the thing: it only looks good because the entire world was CGI and contact with actual reality was kept to a minimum. The scene where Sigourney Weaver’s human character is carried by the Navi through the forest actually looks pretty fake. 

The entire time, “Tarkin” had to be in contact with real cast members beside him so of course there’s an uncanny valley effect. Have you looked at the job they did though?

Original for comparison:

Certainly better than what happened in Episode III. Besides, the uncanny valley would probably work in his favor since he IS a villain. They’re supposed to be unsettling.

Guy Henry and the people at ILM (Industrial Light and Magic) worked hard and did a damn good job AND they brought Peter Cushing back from the dead. Appreciate the skill, enjoy the damn popcorn, and enjoy the damn movie because Rogue One is a damn good movie.

Time to post drawings I did for Star Trek: Mirror (aka that one time I’ve accidentally wrote a screenplay for a movie and couldn’t think of a good name for it). What can I say, I love mirrorverse…

Basically it’s a fic in a screenplay format - imagine if the next AOS movie was a reboot of “Mirror, Mirror”

Let’s start with not-really-illustrations - I drew the first one just for the sake of designing the uniforms; the second one is actually the very first drawing I did for this fic, as you can see, originally the grand reveal of the Tantalus Field was done with Spock and Marlena present and explaining its functions

I’m going to post more drawings later, I have like a hundred…

film meme: (1/10) favourite movies 

The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) – Good things about Tom Ripley? That could take me some time. Tom is talented. Tom is tender. Tom is beautiful. Tom is- Tom is a mystery. Tom is not a nobody. Tom has secrets he doesn’t want to tell me and I wish he would. Tom has nightmares. That’s not a good thing. Tom has someone to love him. That is a good thing. Tom is crushing me. Tom is crushing me. Tom. Tom, you’re crush….

people are telling me the book that home was based on is actually good which makes me sad

but i think the movie adaptation was dead from the start as soon as they cast sheldor to be the alien. then the plotline, pacing, and most jokes in the movie were a complete mess. its really unfortunate because everyone was so excited to have poc girl as a main character in an animated adventure movie but like, poc deserved a better movie than…this,,

(Part 3)
Translation for English Speakers:
“Siempre que duermo aquí, ella golpea la puerta…mi Mamá…”= “Every time I sleep here (his bedroom), she hits (basically she pounds) the door… my mom”

So.
This part made me rethink his relationship with his mom… he clearly has a lot of good memories with her, so him saying something like this is kind of odd. This part actually really reminds of Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Why?
Well in the book and movie, it’s made clear that Charlie clearly loves his aunt dearly and has tons of great memories about her… but through flashbacks it is implied that she molested Charlie many times before despite being such a loving aunt. Charlie tried to suppress these memories but it comes to light now and again.
.
.
.
I think that is what happened here. The fact the Sangwoo has these nightmares, hallucinations, visions, whatever you want to call it… of his mom angrily trying to get into his bedroom door at night is suggestive enough. Not only that but he says “every time I sleep here” which means that this was a common occurrence. He’s even terrified and dreads what will happen and this clearly is either a literal memory or based off actual things that would happen to him and I just don’t see why a kid would lock his door in fright of his mom entering his bedroom at night other than because she was going to kill or molest him.

Next the fact that he only kills women (caution: this might be a reach) may show that he has some weird anger towards women perhaps in relation to his mom… or it could just be that women are easier targets but then again, he seemed to have no problems luring that middle aged man into his trap and guys tends to have their guards down especially when it comes down to the prospect of getting some sex, while women tend to be much more wary of danger and thus require more effort to convince into entering ones house.
The most telling evidence of all, which I don’t have pictures for right now, but you can look up chapter 13 on YouTube and read the translation for it, is that he pops a boner thinking about his mom multiple times throughout the story… Bum also reminds him of his mom and he seems to get some sick enjoyment from hearing Bum call out his name and struggle and do sexual things with him.
The fact that he is associating his mom with sex… and even popping a boner… I think is telling enough to make me think that his relationship with his mom isn’t as sweet as it sounds.
