this movie was ruined from this point on


sooo my sister just sent this to me and I am pissed tf off 

as someone who is Native American, I would be thrilled to walk into the Disney store and see Pocahontas merch. she was one of my favourites as a kid, still is my hero - for being brave, strong, wonderous, selfless, and teaching a lesson that most adults today can even begin to grasp (love is more important than hate). I have 2 Disney stores within driving distance of me and neither of them ever carry merch from this movie (if they do, it’s the rare, rare Meeko plushie) but if I saw some, I would snatch it up in a heartbeat.

the real point I’m trying to make here: it’s Disney. it’s for children. willing to bet the dress in the photo wouldn’t fit anyone over the age of 8, and if you’re going to hound them about cultural appropriation, then you’re just a childhood ruining asshole. 

when a child would put on that dress, it’s likely after seeing the movie - after seeing a beautiful, strong, wonder-seeking woman on screen and wanting to emulate that themselves. they don’t do it with the malice intentions of making fun of all Native American people 

I understand there’s a lot of bigger stuff at play here, but please, let kids be kids, let adults enjoy stuff from their childhood when they want to, and all you fucking bitter adults please stop projecting your inner depressions and political agendas onto harmless children’s cartoons 


anonymous asked:

Sooooo, I really like your latest breakfast post. And the part with saeyoung walking in MC and Saeran kissing was funny. It gave me an idea. Can I request how the RFA+Saeran would react if another member walked in on them and Mc making out? Heehee~ thanks!

Haha, we laughed at this one. Hope you like these~


  • You brought Zen lunch during his rehearsals
  • It was just him in his dressing room since he was taking a break
  • When he saw you had brought him lunch, he kissed you on the lips as a thank you
  • Well…you two accidentally ended up kissing a lot more
  • Little did you know, Jaehee had thought to visit Zen as she had a short break from work
  • You two had left the door slightly open so she just walked in….and saw you both…and neither of you noticed
  • After a few minutes of stunned silence, she clears her throat awkwardly
  • You nearly fall on the floor trying to distance yourself from Zen
  • You can’t even look Jaehee in the eye
  • “Oh, er–enjoy your lunch, Zen. Bye!”
  • And you dash out the door
  • Meanwhile, Zen can’t stop blushing and stammering
  • He takes a huge bite out of his lunch to cover it up when Jaehee notices a smudged lipstick mark straying from his mouth
  • “Uh, you have something on your face…” she says with a small laugh
  • “Oh? Is it some sauce?”
  • “Not quite….”


  • It was your usual movie night at his house
  • The movie wasn’t at any interesting point, so Yoosung made his move
  • It started out as a few little pecks, and next thing you know he’s leaning over you and you both get lost in your own moment
  • Too bad the sound of someone munching on popcorn ruined the mood
  • You both pull a little away from each other to look at the source
  • Seven is casually sitting on the couch near the corner staring at the TV  
  • “Didn’t know this movie was rated PG-13,” he grins at you two
  • Yoosung starts yelling at Seven from his place on the couch
  • But Yoosung is still hovering over you on the couch
  • It doesn’t make the situation any better for you, but he doesn’t seem fazed
  • You guys just start throwing pillows and whatever soft items you can find and pelting them at Seven
  • When he finally leaves the house, Yoosung just keeps going like nothing ever happened
  • You stop him and make a joke that Seven might still be around
  • You hear a chuckle from nearby
  • “Seven, what the heck!”
  • To this day, neither of you knew why or how he was in Yoosung’s house that evening


  • The latest RFA party had just ended
  • Jumin was given the task of rounding up the members for the afterparty
  • He can’t seem to find Jaehee or you anywhere
  • He’s passing by a storage closet and he hears….voices?
  • It’s a long shot, but he figures he’ll check and and opens the door
  • You two are sitting on the floor oddly calm and playing…Go Fish
  • “Uh…what are you two doing?”
  • “Playing Go Fish.” Jaehee deadpans holding up some cards
  • “In a storage closet?”
  • “The party got too loud,” you shrug before turning back to your cards
  • Jumin looks between you two as Jaehee takes a turn
  • He doesn’t even try to figure out what’s going on
  • He just shuts the door and leaves and just tells everyone you two will join them later….probably


  • The next RFA meeting was at his penthouse
  • You had come early to help set up and use the kitchen to bake some treats
  • You’re not exactly sure what happened
  • You were just rambling on a bit while plating things, and he was watching from the doorway
  • Next thing you know, he lifted you onto the counter and his lips were on yours
  • This was all very pleasant…except for the fact that Jumin had told the security guards to let the RFA members in whenever they arrived
  • Zen so happened to arrive a little early and went searching for you and him in the house
  • He lets out a yelp, “Jumin, you can’t just do that to her wherever you want!”
  • Jumin sighs and rolls his eyes, “This is my house, so…if you would excuse me”
  • He just goes back to kissing you like nothing ever happened
  • You just hear Zen’s complaints growing more distant until he retreats to another room to wait for the others
  • You find a lot of complaints in the chatroom later


  • You were just about to leave Saeyoung’s house for the day
  • You gave him a kiss goodbye…then one kiss led to another…and another
  • Then he was gently pressing you up against the door as things got heated
  • Saeran was coming home from some outing or another…and he really had to use the bathroom
  • After getting through his twin’s ridiculous security system, he goes to open the door
  • But it kept getting stuck
  • He tries a few more gentle tries before peering through the window on the side
  • When he sees you and Saeyoung making out against the door, he’s so done
  • He shoves it open, not caring that he’s shoving you and Saeyoung onto the wall
  • “My bladder is not going to wait for your lips to stop moving!” 
  • You thought Saeyoung would be mortified….but no…he’s yelling at Saeran for ruining a moment
  • The twins start bickering at each other….one from the doorway and the other rushing towards the bathroom
  • You slide to the floor confused by the whole thing


  • Saeyoung had heard gardening might help Saeran…so he wanted to start one in the backyard
  • He even invited you and Yoosung to help
  • He didn’t account for the fact that Saeran had no interest in gardening
  • But he had a great interest in you and vice versa
  • So when you two were sent to fetch something from the shed, you take the advantage of kissing him, shutting the shed door behind you
  • As per usual, things heat up really quickly
  • Yoosung was sent to check on you both since it seemed to be taking so long
  • He opens the shed door and takes one glimpse at what you were doing
  • The sudden light makes you two break apart, shuffling away from each other
  • Yoosung doesn’t help your embarrassment since he’s covering his eyes
  • “No, no! Don’t mind me! Continue–er–whatever–um–”
  • He tries to grab some tools, but ends up tripping on everything while encouraging you two to continue kissing
  • After he falls over the seventh time, you and Saeran give up and walk out of the shed…you might also be trying to hide your laughter   

Check out our other headcanons~ Masterlist

hi everyone! some people are starting school soon, meanwhile, others have already started. i’ve noticed a lot of people who are freshmen, or upcoming freshmen, and i’d like to give my own advice from personal experience! i seriously wished i followed some of these tips.

1. whether or not your current friends will be at your high school, this is a great time to make new friends. you may not think so right now, but you might become really close to them in the future.

2. just a psa, you might lose some friends in high school. that is fine! the reasons can range from unnecessary drama to just having no classes together. you will find better friends, i promise.

3. people say that high school isn’t what you see in movies, but cliques are still very real. you will probably have your own clique-like group at some point, but do be open to people. don’t just focus on your friends when that new kid could use new friends too.

4. you might have a teacher that will ruin your grades/gpa. i genuinely mean that you might end up with a teacher that ruins your 4.0 gpa or your goal for straight a’s, no matter how much effort you put into the class. do not underestimate yourself, learn what you can yourself and move on. you will do better, trust me, those teachers exist for a reason other than to make you suffer, i swear.

5. sign up for electives, clubs, sports, etc. that you want to try out. you will find people with similarities to you, and you will need that time to have fun and not study relentlessly.

6. while it doesn’t hurt to learn a language, instead of taking a foreign language class for colleges, take it and apply what you learn. foreign languages are really helpful and fun too, especially if you get to study abroad or go travel to foreign countries!

7. remember that you can talk to your guidance counselor at school if you have any problems. they want you to have a good school year too. teachers, parents, and even close friends can be good people to go to.

8. please, don’t take an ap class (or any class with college credit) if you aren’t willing to work hard in those classes and actually study. i see freshmen do this all the time, and it only wastes your time. it might be better to delay those classes for sophomore year or later.

9. the only reason why upperclassmen seem like they dislike freshmen is that some freshmen are too immature (and frankly, some of them can truly be a nuisance). otherwise, most of them will not bite, so don’t worry!

10. it is important that you do well in your freshman year, so try not to slack off. those grades are your foundation to your gpa!

11. if you do slack off freshman year, it’s okay, colleges like to see students who improve their grades. start sophomore year off with awesome grades. ☆

12. don’t stress so much over college, because you have time to slowly prepare for it! unlike the seniors who are in their second semester, you can plan on what to do to help you prepare for college.

13. don’t have time for something? make time, or find time. you have “time”, you just prioritize certain things over others, that’s all. time management is very important in high school.

14. you might want to improve those bad habits (ahem, procrastination) now. it will help you when you have three tests on the same day, and nobody wants to finish an essay at one in the morning the night before it’s due.

15. don’t take a class just because your friend will take it, you will probably regret it. i did this and i got my schedule changed by the school, so i had a class with none of my friends. it was tedious.

16. this is practically the opposite of #8, but don’t refuse to take a college level class because you think you will fail. (unless you’re contemplating ap calculus when you struggle to graph algebraic functions, then, you know, maybe not). it’s good to challenge yourself sometimes.

17. don’t feel pressured to do something just because it’s mainstream, or that certain people do it. try to learn to stop caring about what people think of you, or at least ignore any negative prejudice around you. their opinions are irrelevant.

18. learn to find your identity, it will take a while. that’s fine, but have fun, make new friends, do fun activities, work hard, and most importantly, be healthy and happy!!

19. do not put school over health. i beg of you, do not pull all nighters either. your physical and mental health is the most important.

20. if you get sick, contact your friends to know what you missed. or have them get your work and give it to you. or even better, email your teachers. i hate doing work when i’m sick, however, it might be better than making up your work while working on your current work after you go back to school.

21. i know people say “don’t stress” which is much harder said than done. you will probably have days when you procrastinate on so many assignments, or when you didn’t do an assignment and you need to finish it as soon as possible. break it down to little pieces and work on it. take breaks. if you are truly stressed, leave your work alone and relax because that is the most important.

22. when you are having a conversation with someone, listen to them rather than wait to reply to them. it’s amazing how many people don’t do this with their own friends. this isn’t exactly related to school, but people do this with their own teachers too, so grasp the directions teachers give you.

23. do the extra credit, especially if it’s small. it might help you from getting an 89.4% in the class.

24. i won’t elaborate on this, but it does help to take certain necessities to school. gum, extra pencils/pens, makeup, brush, etc.

25. unless it is required, don’t take a class just because you want to look good for college. getting into one can be very competitive, and sometimes taking a class you despise might put very little effort into getting into college.

26. learn what you study and apply it, and review it in the future. don’t learn to study, study to learn. if you have never needed to study, start now. even if you still don’t need it. because at some point you will, and if you develop good habits now, you will thank yourself.

27. figure out what kind of learner you are. it helps if you get a teacher that confuses you. do you learn better from pictures? audio? textbooks? figure that out now, if you haven’t. study smarter, not harder!

28. small advice: don’t talk in class and don’t block the hallways. sincerely, someone who walks all over the school five days a week while focusing in seven classes.

29. take advantage of what can help you study better! apps/programs, ambient music, reward systems, pomodoro, etc. figure out what works for you so you can study efficiently.

30. most importantly, work hard and study, but not too hard to the point where your health and mind suffers. good luck to you all.  ♡

31. “Excuse me for falling in love with you.” + Kyungsoo

The movie blared loudly, and everyone laughed loudly at the comedic genius on the screen. Kyungsoo  laughed his quiet, silent laugh and you felt him shake next to you.

You couldn’t recall a single moment from the movie, you were so caught up with your thoughts. Your arms were folded gently between your legs and your chest, folded into a neat little ball on the couch beside Kyungsoo. You snuck glances at him when you could, doing your best to not be too obvious.

Keep reading

Okay, headcanon time. I wanted to be able to make a chapter out of this somehow, and in a small way I eventually will, but I won’t be able to go into it to the extent I want to. So it’s going here.  Also I realize the explanation for every character motivation ever in Legoverse is that it’s a kid’s imagination and watered down from the darker versions BUT I DON’T CARE.

I’ve been thinking a lot about Joker and why he wouldn’t be as much of a psychopath in Legoverse as in the other versions and how exactly his dynamic with Batman got to the point it did. I decided that Joker was probably abused as a kid, not physically, but emotionally. His parents switched between ignoring him completely, telling him they hated him, or just yelling at him in general. In order to cope, Joker convinced himself that hate translated to love and that fighting was a show of affection. On top of that in order to get attention in any capacity he would pull off more and more over the top shenanigans to get any sort of validation from his parents. He lived this way for so long that even once he was able to get away from them he could no longer change the way he thought about love or keep himself from doing crazy stuff like blowing up the city. Thus he became a criminal, knowing someone would have to fight him and hate him for being the villain. He developed particularly strong feelings toward Batman and that’s why by the point of the movie he is so obsessed with getting Batman to say he hates him and is his greatest enemy.

Maybe Sharpay wasn't that bad after all

Just think about how pissed off is Sharpay, in the first movie everything she cared about was that musical which was taken over by some random amateur people that actually are good at other stuff and doesn’t necessarily have to be the stars of the musical, what did Ryan & Sharpay had? Anything. What did Troy & Gabriella had? Basketball, decathlon AND the musical. On the second movie she just wants to relax and yet she still has to put up with the same people that ruined her entire year and took her musical away from her. Even in the third movie her musical is invaded once again by not-so-amateur-anymore people. The point is that she never got her fucking leading role on a high school musical which was basically everything she wanted and was good at while the rest just did that for fun, they took away her leading role just because they could. Of course she is going to be the biggest bitch in town who doesn’t give a shit about anyone but herself.


Look.I get it.An Asian actress would have been more appropriate for the role.But here is the thing - Not only is it smart to assume that a well known actress would rake in big bucks but it is also smarter to PLAY to your audience.Anime is a niche thing. Not everyone has seen the OG GITS.Making something accessible to everyone does include dumbing down the story and NO it SHOULDN’T include being FORCED to cast a white actress to even attempt to make something successful.
But welcome to America folks.
A lot of the population is white, and we do need diversity, but its not going to happen overnight. 
Because of this controversy we got the gay kiss scene that was in all the trailers REMOVED.
Score 1 for NO ONE Dumblr.
Look, you all need to understand that this is a person trying to bring a (mostly) unknown property to NA. This is how they figured it would be most profitable.
Is that RIGHT?
Is it what HAS to be done?
This is the way our world works folks, I’m sorry.
You want to know how to change that?
Voice your opinion to Hollywood, make requests, but christ all mighty.
Getting Hollywood to see that people do in fact want to see movies that involve other cultures is a great way to get more and more diverse casting.

Also if any of you guys actually bothered to see the movie - the “whitewashing” was covered as a plot point. There are REASONS she looks the way she does / has been renamed.


Please support the movie guys. It was good.
You’re doing nothing once again.
All this hellsite ever does is bitch and whine and jerk themselves off over their holy justice.

You’re all fucking insane okay??
How about taking a step back from your black and white view of the world and see that not everything is instantly demonized/ruined because someone made a fake human white.

Instances of legitimate whitewashing are terrible and you will NEVER convince me elsewise.
Alas, this is not an instance :))

Please consider taking a second to actually read what the CREATOR (a Japanese man) has said about the whole thing and maybe listen to him? He did create it after all… Word of god and all that?

Not that any of you all care.

John’s Daughter

Word Count: 857

Request: Hiii!! Can you do a imagine on y/n being like John Mayer’s daughter or something and Shawn seeing her when he was younger, like when his first album came out and then seeing her now and being like “woah”? I’ve literally had this concept in my mind for like two weeks now! Thankssss ❤️

A/N: Idk that much about John Mayer so I didn’t really say that much about him. Also, this is kinda shit so sry fam

The busy hums of the crowd surrounding the red carpet buzzed in your ears. Quick flashes blinded your vision making you tilt your head down, your hair covering the side of your face so the flashes would be out of sight. Your eyes flickered up every few seconds to make sure your dad was still right in front of you, leading you through crowds of paparazzi and reporters.

You had accompanied your dad to an award show, which ended up being more hassle than expected. This was your first time coming with him, so you weren’t used to questions constantly pushed at you and your name being called from several different directions. To your dad, however, this was nothing. He was used to being in the spotlight. He was John Mayer after all. He just tended to keep you out of it for your own protection.

“(Y/N)! Through here,” your dad shouted over the chaos while pointing through an opening between two groups of people. You went through the opening, continuing to duck your head, with your dad following right behind. Once you passed the crowds, the area got much quieter. There were a handful of people, most you recognized from movies or their face plastered on albums, scattered around. 

“You alright?” you dad asked, grabbing your face in his hands, as if inspecting you. Your face grew red from embarrassment of your dad acting like you were a small child.

“Oh my god, I’m fine dad. Stop! You’re ruining my make up,” you whined as he took his hands off your face, laughing. 

“I’m just making sure my baby doesn’t get hurt,” He laughed, gently ruffling your hair to which you scowled. 

“John!” You heard a voice from behind you shout. You turned around, immediately recognizing the face as Shawn Mendes. 

Shawn was smiling widely as he ran up to your dad and gave him a handshake. Shawn quickly turned around to face you and his eyes grew wide. His eyes raked up and down your body which wore a tight red dress. His eyes landed back on yours, your cheeks growing red from him obviously checking you out.

“(Y/N)?” He asked as you nodded your head.

You and Shawn had met a couple years ago, but never really noticed each other. You were both still young, dorky teenagers who didn’t really know how to interact with the other gender. You always thought he was quite cute, but never had the guts to say anything to him. Now, he looked more attractive than ever. He sported a black suit that outlined his muscles perfectly and his hair was slightly gelled. 

“You… uh… you look really good,” He stuttered. Your dad raised his eyebrows at the two of you, making you give him a silent don’t say anything look.

“I’ll just be over there. (Y/N), come find me before the show starts. You kids have fun,” your dad awkwardly stated, walking away from you and Shawn. 

 "Your hair got longer,” Shawn pointed out, trying to make some sort of conversation. He scratched the back of his neck nervously as you chuckled. 

“It did. So did yours,” You said as your eyes locked on his messy curls. 

You two sat in awkward silence for a few seconds, clearly not knowing what to say to each other. In the corner of your eye you saw your dad staring right at the two of you. Shawn looked in the direction you were staring, eyes going wide when he noticed your dad giving a harsh stare before looking away.

“This must be really weird. I’ll see you, right?” Shawn mumbled, beginning to walk away. You grabbed his arm pulling him back to you, not wanting him to leave you.

“Don’t let my dad freak you out. He just thinks he’s doing his job. Besides, he really likes you,” you said, trying to comfort Shawn. Shawn’s face lit up as you finished your sentence.

“He does? That’s cool. He’s like my favorite artist,” Shawn said excitedly. You two stood making small talk for what only seemed like a few minutes, but before you knew it, someone over a speaker was calling for every one to go to their seats. 

“This has been fun. It was nice seeing you. Hopefully I’ll see you around?” you asked, truly wanting to see him again.

“Yeah of course. Actually, you said your dad liked me?” Shawn asked. You nodded your head, not sure where this was going. 

“Would he still like me if I asked you on a date?” Shawn’s hand returned to his neck as he asked the question. A smile broke out on your face as you nodded excitedly.

“I’m positive he would,” You responded. You leaned in and gave Shawn a hug and placed a kiss on his burning cheek. When you pulled away, you noticed his cheek was a deep red, almost blending in with the smudge of red lipstick left. 

“I’ll call you,” He said through a smile as he walked away, leaving your whole body jittery from excitement, not even worrying about what your dad would say.

Disney Marathon.

Disney Marathon. (might be multi-parts, who knows!)

shoutout to @buckyywiththegoodhair inspiring me to actually write more of the original content that you guys like!!! au’s will be from random places online and @/auseverywhere :)) 

 pairing: Bucky Barnes x reader 

 a/n: (e/c/e): eye colored eyes

 au: Person A being a total Disney lover and B’s like ‘I haven’t seen a Disney movie since I was six you’re such a child’ 

Today wasn’t particularly busy. No reports for Tony, and you already worked out this morning. You plopped on the cool leather that made up the couch, scrolling through channels on the tv. Wanda came and sat next to you, resting her head on your leg, as she let her legs hang off the edge of the arm rest on the couch. “What are you up to, y/n?” She asked, looking up at you. You shrugged. “No work today, and nothing on tv.” You replied. “Why don’t you watch those cartoon movies you love so much? I’ll join you, in fact.” She suggested. You chuckled. She meant Disney movies. You loved them. The singing, the dancing, the characters, the mini lessons they’d put into them. “You wanna watch your favorite one first?” You asked. “The one with the poor boy and the monkey?” She asked. You chuckled. “Aladdin. And yes, that one.” She sat up, grinning. Wanda would never admit it, but she liked Disney movies. Every time you watched one with her, it reminded you of her telling stories of her childhood, and how the Disney movies make her feel like she’s experiencing the childhood she never had. You liked spending those moments with her. “I’ll make snacks, you set up the movie.” She said, heading off to the kitchen. You smiled, grabbing her favorite blanket off Tony’s loveseat. Red, with swirly patterned hearts on it. She said she’s had it since she was a child, and no matter how many times she washed it, it smelled like her brother Pietro. Strong cologne and a hint of mint. You put it where she would sit, and sat down. “JARVIS, play Aladdin for me, please.” You said aloud. “Of course, miss y/n.” His accent poured through the speakers. You smiled, seeing Wanda come back as the beginning credits started. She put a bowl of popcorn on the table, and handed you your favorite candy bar. You smiled. “Thanks.” She smiled. “Anytime.“ 

As the movie came to a close, you looked over to see Wanda in tears, eyes teary and nose red. "Awee, Wanda, c'mere!” You cooed, pulling her into a hug. “H-he did it because he l-loved her!” She hiccuped, as you chuckled to yourself, hugging and rocking her. You pulled back, seeing her chuckled as she sniffed. “He just reminds me so much of Pietro, is all.” She smiled sadly. You rubbed her back, as Bucky walked in. “Watcha girls doin?” He asked, plopping down next to you. “Watching Disney movies with Wanda.” You said. “Disney movies? Really? What are you, 5?” He scoffed jokingly. “Disney movies are no joke, Barnes.” You stated seriously. He chuckled. “Show me a good one.” He stated. And you, accepted the challenge proudly. 

 "JARVIS, plays Tangled for me next, please.” You said aloud. The beginning credits started, and you felt his arm rest on the area of couch behind your shoulders. You hummed along, smiling as you did so, resting your head on his chest. He looked at you, chuckling. Too cute. He thought. At this point, Rapunzel had already met Eugene, or Flynn. “Y/n.” Wanda said, looking up at you. “Yeah?” You replied, looking at half at her, and half at the movie. “Barnes is kinda like Flynn, and your kinda like Rapunzel.” She said, looking at you. You blushed. “I-I guess if you see it that way.” You cleared your throat, trying to watch the movie. Bucky was grinning from ear to ear, like an idiot. 

You had a huge crush on Bucky, but didn’t wanna ruin what you already had. The teasing, the jokes, the pranks, you loved all that. And you didn’t wanna ruin it because you loved his humor, or his pretty blue eyes. You couldn’t like him. You’d get so much shit. And the fact tht you valued your friendship way too much to loose it. 

And Bucky, oh boy, did he like you. Steve gave him shit all the time for it. He thought you had the greatest smile, and an awesome sense of humor. He thought you were so smart, and pretty, despite your protests. He loved your kindness, and how your (e/c/e) lit up when you talked about something that excited you or that you loved. Like when he challenged you to show him the best Disney movie you knew. 

 Towards the end of the movie, Eugene and Rapunzel had gotten married, and Rapunzel was reunited with her parents. You teared up, as the end credits rolled. He chuckled. “You okay, doll?” He asked. You chuckled, wiping your cheeks. “Yeah. I just.. I really love this movie.” You chuckled, sniffing. He chuckled, rubbing your arm. “I think it’s the best Disney movie I’ve seen.” He smiled. “You haven’t seen many.” You chuckled. “Don’t have to. You showed me the best of the best.”

DCEU Discussion Before WW

Well its that time of year again.  Another DCEU movie is coming so I must revisit all the past movies in preparation for the new Wonder Woman coming on June 2.  And I think I have finally realized yet another reason I LOVE these films.  Now to begin I am not going to bash M*rvel or anything, all I will say is that their movies are the same tone throughout pretty much all of them including GOTG.  Ok, that’s all I have to say about that, now onto the breakdown of what I just realized about DCEU.

So beginning with MoS, directed by Zach Snyder, you can tell this movie is told from the perspective of Clark/Superman.  There is a filter to it but it is mostly bright and sunny, daytime, even for the fight scenes.  Then the lowest point in the movie, when Metropolis is in ruin and Superman has had to kill Zod it is dark, its reflecting how dark Superman feels, how hopeless at that moment, because he couldn’t save Metropolis from destruction and he couldn’t save the last of his kind.  Then he goes outside, sees Lois, sees the person who to him is pure, and good, and worth everything in the world.  She is the reflection of the good of humanity to him and suddenly he sees hope, he sees a reason to fight on and try to stop this from happening again, suddenly, its brighter again, less hopeless.  The movie ends on hope.

Next comes BvS, also directed by Zach Snyder and now we have shifted perspective from the getgo.  This movie is Bruce/Batman’s perspective.  It is dark, and gritty, and hopeless.  He has been doing this for 20 years and seemingly has lost all light and good that was within him.  He just does this now because he doesn’t know what else to do beyond take down bad guys and if there are some causalities, well that sucks but not like he is the one directly killing them.  The whole movie is seemingly told at night except for the Superman scenes, but even those are a little darker, as if told through the eyes of Batman and how he sees Superman throughout the film.  Then, at the end, the funeral of Superman and even more so at the funeral of Clark Kent, it is bright, Batman sees hope in the world again.  He sees that he has been existing and not living, having forgotten why he became the Batman in the first place but the sacrifice Clark made reminds him that yes, there is still hope in the world, there is still good.  The movie once again ends on hope.

Finally comes Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer, is from the perspective of mostly Harley and Deadshot.  They are the focus and I would argue the whole film is skewed to Harley’s perspective.  We see its dark yes, but its so fun in the dark!  This is bad guys at night who are out to kill some shit!  This is told from the view of a woman who is mentally unstable and in love with someone who is abusive and doesn’t see it.  This is a movie full of loud laughter, crazy music, and fight scenes that are made to be outlandish and fun more so than just dark violence.  Harley thrives in this world and its completely different than the movies that came before it.

DCEU seems to be telling their filmmakers ‘hey look, these movies need to tie together so do that sometime but just make the movie you want to make about these characters, have fun with it, be yourself’ and I feel that will be continued in Wonder Woman.  Love these movies or hate them they are unique entities that don’t seem to just rehash the same one-liners, themes, and tones.  They are all different and let the filmmakers take the reigns for the most part.  This is why I love the DCEU, I’m not getting the same movie over and over again, I’m getting a new one every time.

Epic Movie (Re)Watch #197 - The Lion King

Spoilers Below

Have I seen it before: Yes

Did I like it then: Yes.

Do I remember it: Yes.

Did I see it in theaters: Yes.

Was it a movie I saw since August 22nd, 2009: Yes, #123.

Format: DVD

1) Circle of Life.

Originally posted by seokx2

Very few films have such iconic first frames as The Lion King does, and there are three key reasons for that.

First of all: the visuals are wildly unique. That very first visual of the sun rising is visceral and memorable, not to mention just absolutely beautiful. The following images of the animals of the Pride Lands also stand out, because they are filled with such character and life as well as something else which isn’t often seen in animated films: realism. Think about the film’s of the Disney Renaissance before The Lion King: The Little Mermaid, The Rescuers Down Under, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. All are beautifully animated and feature great animal characters, but they are largely cartoon characters. They’re anthropomorphic, which the animals in The Lion King will be. But these first animals we see aren’t. They’re realistic, natural. In some ways it’s like we’re watching an animated nature documentary. And it does well to set up the visuals of the film.

Secondly: the opening number sets up a clear sense of place among the Pride Lands. We very quickly understand the hierarchy of things, how the lions are actually kings, who’s important, who are just subjects, relationships between characters like Mufasa and Rafiki, all without any dialogue. The fact the film can do this all so elegantly speaks greatly to its craft.

Thirdly: the music. Holy cow the music here is absolutely incredible. It is grand, moving, and a perfect first song for the film. It not only represents the talents of both composer Elton John and lyricist Tim Rice - who create a soundtrack with one iconic song after the next - but also Hans Zimmer. Hans Zimmer’s score in this film isn’t discussed much among lay people (we talk about it in film classes), which is a shame because it is as important if not more so than the work done by the previously mentioned musicians. Zimmer has only won one Oscar in his entire life and it is for this film. His score and work with the wildly talented Lebo M is perfectly married with this song, so much so the animators even recognized it.:

The original opening to the film was supposed to have been a quiet dialogue-heavy sequence. When composer Hans Zimmer prepared his interpretation of Circle of Life, he made an extended version so he would have some flexibility as to what to cut for the film. The animators were so impressed with the work that they decided to change the beginning into the currently seen sequence so they could use the entire work that Zimmer prepared.

So yeah, that’s why “Circle of Life” works so well as an opening.

2) Jeremy Irons as Scar.

Originally posted by thelionkingdaily

Scar is a delightfully evil villain in the best sense. He makes your skin crawl for a number of reasons. You understand he’s a cowardly piece of dirt, but he’s also intimidating. That’s because the animators and Irons are able to convey Scar’s intellect grandly. You understand how intelligent he is, how his power is in manipulation, and THAT’S what’s scary. Irons makes the part in much the same way James Woods makes Hades or Jonathan Pryce makes Jafar. He is one of many MANY examples of how this movie is perfectly cast.

3) I touched upon this briefly in note #1, but there are very few big budget American animated films which are animated as beautifully as The Lion King. The filmmakers take a number of brief moments to really just show off the majesty of the Pride Lands, to show off nature, which ties directly into the theme of the circle of life. Nature has an order to things, a balance, and this film shows that in the most beautiful and perfect way imaginable here and there.

Originally posted by iggyface

4) This theme of the circle of life is perfectly explained by Mufasa to his young child Simba early in the film. The reason that scene works and why so many simple lines of dialogue are strong in the memories of children who grew up on this film is because they’re simple but not stupid. Important concepts like the order of nature are explained to young Simba while also not talking down to him (and thereby not talking down to the audience). It is simple elegance at its finest.

5) The Morning Report.

So I’m watching the DVD copy of this film which was released in 2004 I believe, which features this addition to the film. “The Morning Report” was a song which I believe was originally considered for the original release but then cut, before finding new life in the successful Broadway production of The Lion King. Although I grew up with the film including “The Morning Report”, I honestly prefer the version without it. The song is fun but doesn’t really feel necessary and I imagine it was cut from the original film for a reason. It also shortens the gap between songs by falling between “Circle of Life” and “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” which kind of messes up the pacing for me. I like the song on its own and its not enough to ruin the film by ANY means, but I prefer this movie without “The Morning Report”.

6) I know Scar is completely evil and despicable, but there are moments where I relate to him. Case in point:

Simba: “You’re so weird!”

Scar: “You have no idea.”

7) Okay, quick question: ARE SIMBA AND NALA RELATED!? Because there’s only two lions in the whole pride and they’re both related to Simba. So who’s Nala’s dad? Is there an answer for this I don’t know?

(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)

8) You know how there are things you say and then you understand why you say them?

Zazu: “The sooner we get to the watering hole, the sooner we can leave.”

I have been saying for years, “The sooner we ________, the sooner we can leave,” and I was wondering where that came from. Now I know!

9) “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King”

Originally posted by peter-pan-to-wonderland

Disney Renaissance films traditionally had a big show stopping number in them to dial up the fun. The Little Mermaid hand “Under the Sea”, Beauty and the Beast had “Be Our Guest”, Aladdin had “Friend Like Me”, and The Lion King has “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King”. The song is pure fun, with a song that infects the audience with its energy and an animation style to match. But more than being a piece of entertainment, it sets up a clear juxtaposition for Simba by the film’s end. Consider the responsible leader he is when he takes his place on Pride Rock against who he is during this song and you can see just how far he’s journeyed.

10) Simba as a character.

Originally posted by lionkingfreak

Honestly, the most interesting thing about Simba is the journey he goes on in 90 short minutes. You see him go from irresponsible kid to guilt ridden adult trying (and maybe failing) to deal with trauma, to a responsible leader. And it’s all so organic that you’re never taken out of the moment. It’s not like, “What, suddenly he’s this now?” I think that’s due to an excellent blend between the writing, animation, and voice over work.

Simba’s dialogue is done by two actors: Jonathan Taylor Thomas as cub Simba and Matthew Broderick as adult Simba. Both play exactly what they need to in the part, with Taylor Thomas able to portray both the cub’s more carefree nature and later grief. Broderick on the other hand is able to portray adult Simba’s grief/heartache, attempts at carefreeness, and eventual responsibility all really well. As mentioned above, it all feels right. Never jarring, never off putting, it just freaking works.

11) There are a number of scenes in this film which have a crazy good sense of place, and the elephant graveyard is one of them. As soon as you enter this territory you KNOW you’re not supposed to be there. It’s dark, forbidding, threatening, and just has a real sense of fear/dread to it. It’s freaking great.

Originally posted by whositswhatsits

12) Shenzi, Banzai and Ed.

Originally posted by whyhansolo

This trio is another strong example of excellent casting in the film. Whoopi Goldberg, Cheech Marin, and Jim Cummings all are able to be individually funny, evil, dangerous, and stupid at the same time. As a set, though, they compliment each other nicely. No one outshines the other, they’re a great trio that just help support each other.

13) The scene between Mufasa and Simba after the elephant graveyard is amazing.

From the moment Simba’s tiny paw is seen in Mufasa’s larger one, you understand clearly a big fear of the lion’s. He’s afraid he will never be as great a man as his father, with many of his actions compensating for this idea (going to the graveyard, for example). Both Simba and Mufasa are portrayed with heartwarming honesty in this scene. Mufasa’s anger subsides quickly and you understand (even before he says it) that his anger comes from a place of fear and concern for his son. It’s a scene which - more than anything else - gets you deeply invested in their relationship. Which makes the upcoming plot turn all the more heartbreaking.

This is also a good place to talk about James Earl Jones as Mufasa. Known primarily for his voice over work as Darth Vader, Jones is as amazing here but for different reasons. He is able to give Mufasa so much depth in his performance. The voice of the king can be threatening, angry, patient, wise, afraid, heartbroken, desperate, and kind, with no element lessening the other. And Jones just is excellent in all facets, which might be why he’s reprising the part in the 2019 reimagined version directed by Jon Favreu.

14) Remember how I said Scar can be relatable? Well, I think we’ve all had this moment:

Originally posted by vero-argent

15) Be Prepared.

Okay, I’m a sucker for a good villain song and “Be Prepared” is wonderfully dark/evil. I have to remind myself it’s still Elton John and Tim Rice, it’s still the guys who did “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” because it’s just got such a different character to it. The song is amazing from a storytelling standpoint because if it wasn’t clear what Scar’s motivations/goals were before, they sure are now. Like with “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King”, there’s this wonderfully fun animation style to it which pushes the boundaries of reality. It’s just wonderfully villainous and I love it.

15.1) In the song “Be Prepared”, Jeremy Irons actually threw out his voice after the line, “YOU WON’T GET A SNIFF WITHOUT ME!” So the filmmakers had Jim Cummings (legendary voice over actor who plays Ed in this film) sing the rest of the song. If you’re a fan of Anastasia, Cummings sang “In The Dark of the Night” and if you listen you can definitely hear that it’s him but otherwise he does a good job of masking his voice.

16) Wildebeest Stampede.

(GIF source unknown [if this is your GIF please let me know].)

The reason the stampede scene works as well as it does is because it is so freaking epic. The scale of it, the music, the tension is just crazy high. Through the marriage of all aspects of cinema (acting, writing, visuals, sound) the audience is just on the edge of their seats. And the way Mufasa just jumps into the fray and throws Simba to safety just shows an incredible amount of personal stakes for him. It’s amazing from beginning to end.

17) Excuse me while I have a good cry.

Okay, this never used to get to me. Never. When I was a kid, it didn’t effect me AT ALL. But now?

Simba [upon finding Mufasa’s body]: “Dad come on, you gotta get up…we gotta go home.”

Yeah, even thinking about it gets me teary eyed. I think it’s because of some personal stuff I’ve gone through the older I get, but just the raw honesty of the scene gets me. Especially the way Simba nestles under Mufasa’s paw because to him that place is safe? And he just lays close to his dad and…

18) Scar goes from fun Disney villain to someone who you’re actively rooting against (as you are against the best villains) when he decides to murder his own brother and make his nephew feel like it’s his fault even though he plans to kill him anyway. That’s like, next level evil. Suffice to say I’m cheering on Scar’s demise at the end.

19) Timon and Pumbaa.

Originally posted by kpfun

The film’s ultimate scene stealers, Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella are great in their respective parts as the meerkat and warthog. They just bring a smile to your face whenever they appear on screen. Pumbaa is charmingly innocent and Timon is likably deviant as a trickster. They play off each other well like a classic comedy duo and are just great to watch.

20) Hakuna Matata.

Originally posted by conniexue

One of the key reasons the song works so well in the story is because it is a welcome shift in tone from Mufasa’s death and Simba’s exile in a way which still feels organic. The number is charming, light, infectious, fun, and just a genuinely feel good song. A great anthem for anyone who stresses too much about the little things. Maybe not so much for people who could stress more about the big things, but there’s a middle ground.

21) I always wanted more of teenage Simba, who we really only get to spend like 3 seconds with. I don’t know, there’s something about that ½ mane which I like. But then again, I’m a fan of awkward middle child movies and tv show stuff. That’s probably a factor.

22) I love it when Disney gets meta.

Scar: “Sing something with a little bounce in it.”

(GIF originally posted by @thedailyprophet)

Scar: “NO! Anything but that!”

22.1) My mother and brother saw the Broadway version in New York in 2014 or 2015 (I can’t remember which). According to them, Zazu sang “Let it Go” instead and got the same reaction out of Scar. I dig it.

23) This is a brief but great scene that lets the audience understand Simba is NOT where he belongs, no matter how great Timon & Pumbaa are.

Simba [about stars]: “Somebody once told me that the great kings of the past are up there…”

[Timon and Pumbaa break out laughing at Simba.]

24) Okay, let’s talk about this.

According to IMDb:

There have been rumors that when Simba collapses on the cliff after talking with Timon and Pumbaa about stars, the dust that flies off the cliff forms the letters SEX. In fact it forms the letters SFX, the abbreviation of the special-effects team that worked on that portion of the film. For all subsequent releases more flowers and dust were added to the scene to avoid controversy.

25) I love how it takes Simba no time at all to recognize Nala, he recognizes her that well. It just takes her beating him in a fight.

26) In some moments, I’m Timon.

Timon: “Let me get this straight! You know her, she knows you, but she wants to eat him. And everyone’s okay with this? DID I MISS SOMETHING!?”

27) Can You Feel The Love Tonight.

Originally posted by princessemmaofarendelle

Apparently at one point Disney was going to have Timon and Pumbaa sing the whole song as a gag, while at another they’d cut it entirely. Elton John campaigned that the song be featured as is, as he considered it a love song in the grand Disney tradition. Well this apparently a brilliant decision because it won the film as Oscar for Best Original Song. The song is such a sweet and beautiful piece which really just pulls at your heart strings, allowing you to actually feel the love in the air. I just love it.

28) This moment always makes me smile. Rafiki’s unbridled joy is just so infectious.

Rafiki: “Asante sana, squash banana…”

29) Remember that I said Simba’s biggest fear was not being as great a lion/king as his father was?

Rafiki: “You see: he lives in you.”

Rafiki’s words and then Simba’s communication with his father’s ghost both feed directly into this fear.

Originally posted by great-circleoflife

Simba has greatness in him and that greatness is represented by his father. His father’s memory lives on in him and he can do great things in that memory. The visuals of the scene where Simba communes with his father’s ghost continues the film’s streak of excellent visuals and is iconic to this day.

30) One of the wisest lines I have heard in a movie ever.

Rafiki: “Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it you can either run from it OR learn from it.”

31) Nathan Lane improvised this line and the filmmakers just rolled with it. Meanwhile I still laugh my butt off every time we get this far.

32) This line really shows that Scar sees being king much as the immature cub Simba did (in “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King”), but that’s a much scarier reality than it is fantasy.

Scar: “I’m the king, I can do whatever I want.”

33) I would like to point out that Scar is such a freaking coward. He cowers so quickly before Simba when he returns then tries to manipulate him. He tries to sneak away from the fight before blaming the hyenas for everything. He tries to appease Simba before double-crossing him and being thrown to the hyenas (literally). It’s this cowardice, this double crossing, which leads to Scar’s death and I couldn’t be happier about it.

34) This all takes place during a skirmish between our heroes and villains, a scene which is a really great climax for a lot of reasons. It definitely has some seriousness and epic-ness to it, while also infusing it with classic cartoonish fun. It’s just got some wonderful action to it.

35) Simba’s ascension to the top of Pride Rock feels 100% earned. In the ninety minutes of the movie we’ve seen the journey he’s gone on since birth and we understand that this is not only his place but also that he’s earned this place. A truly fitting ending.

The Lion King is an iconic classic of not only animation but cinema in general. It’s wonderful sense of epic storytelling blends perfectly with characters, actors, music, and animation. It tells the story it needs in an elegant and emotional fashion, providing cinema with one of its most heartbreaking deaths ever while also giving us some of Disney’s best humor. All in all, it’s just a great film everyone should see.

So many naive people out there actually believe Affleck’s “I can’t act and direct at the same time” story for dropping out as director of ‘The Batman’. I can’t with you people. That story was clearly fabricated to save face. He’s acted in and directed several movies before. He dropped out (or was forced to) because his passion project, ‘Live By Night’ was both a critical and box office disaster that pretty much ruined his reputation as a good director and lost the studio $75million. WB have either lost confidence in his ability to make a great movie and have been interfering more since then to make sure that situation doesn’t repeat itself (hence having BvS writer Chris Terrio re-write Affleck’s script) to the point that Affleck had enough and wanted out, or they’re the ones who have forced him to step down and allowed him to say it was his choice to prevent it from damaging his reputation any further. Either way, his official statement was bullshit. 

Soft Hair

1. “Your hair is so soft..”

Soft Hair

“Bucky-” Steve shouted at the top of his lungs, entering the dimly lit living room. The platinum haired mans eyes had shot strait to the silhouette figure of his brother and girlfriend sitting together watching a movie.

“-Then, the girl says she loves him but even tho he doesn’t change back into a human-” A girl explained, her hands in the popcorn bowl which sat between the two adults, Steve stayed staring at them unknowing to them of his presence. “I don’t remember the ending too well, but I know once she kisses him he becomes human.” Her voice held adoration, as if her heart had swelled with just the though of the movie. Shaking his head, Captain America had left leaving the couple alone, he’ll remember to pester Bucky about his briefing first thing in the morning.

“I still don’t get why he’s a beast-” The man grumbled, slouching deeper in the couches brown cushions.

The girl beside him had sighed loudly- Throwing her hands in the air she then paused the movie to start the explanation all over again.

“He is very rich, but very selfish. So one day an old lady knocked on his door and asked for a glass of water but he didn’t give her- so she turned him into a beast-” The elfin girl stated, she ushered her hands out to him to say something, if he understood or not.

“Sure, then why is he all of a sudden getting married to this Bell?” His metal arm had then reached to rest on the couch, turning his body to her.

“Because- God Bucky we were literally watching the scene why she had to marry the beast!” The girl grabbed the red and white bowl settling it on the coffee table beside them. “People called her dad crazy so he ran away and stumbled in the castle, so the beast took him in, in order to get her dad out of prison she was arranged to marry the beast!” Her frail voice was easing to more of worry, what had he been thinking about to ignore the whole movie, it’s like he couldn’t even add one and two at the moments.

“I don’t like this movie.” Bucky murmured, throwing his human flesh arm over his eyes and trying to fall asleep, ignore his girlfriend completely.

“We’re suppose to watch a movie together Bucky…” The girl stated a bit loudly, shoving her man so he would wake up and apologize for hurting her feelings. “Your ruining everything.” She whispered the last part while standing up, she had concluded if he wanted to act like a kid and not appreciate the movie she had picked out to watch with him, she would go to sleep.

“Doll-” Bucky joked, standing with her. She shook her head and pointed back to the couch.

“I watched your movie yesterday even when it was as boring as Steve on briefing-” The young women stated, only to be abruptly cut off by Bucky throwing her body over his shoulder.

She kicked and punched, but nothing came out from his end. She was just a simple nurse for the avengers so it’s not like she has muscles or anything. “Put me down Bucky!” The girl shouted, her screamed echoed throughout the walls of the empty compound, surly someone had now jolted awake thanks to her tone of voice.

“Let’s play sleepover.” Bucky suggested, placing the girl down in front of his room. “I’ll let you play with my hai-” Before he could even get a single letter out of his lips, she had grabbed him by his metal arm, nails digging in between the plates, she jumped on his bed before he had followed her.

“Your hair is so soft..” She trailed, once her nails had dug across his scalp. Feeling the roots of hair, as her nails crossed below his ear, she started feeling goosebumps over his skull.

He hummed and closed his eyes, resting his head on her thighs while she played with his hair his hands around her waist, their dorm room slightly left open.

“Hey Bucky?” She asked, nails scraping his white skin, her voice held a strong sense of seriousness, which had only sparked her boyfriends interest the more. 

Bucky nodded, then hummed in response waiting for her to contribute her question. 

“What shampoo do you use?”

Imagine Bucky kicks your ex’s ass:

Tonight was your movie night. You were in Bucky’s embrace and attempted to focus on screen. It was not easy because Bucky’s cuddling style took you out of guard every time. You giggled, “You are missing movie” He slightly caressed your hair “I found more interesting thing we can do instead” his hands trail down to your belly when loud knock in your door surprised you. “I thought we didn’t expect anyone today” he raised his eyebrows in a little irritation. “So did I. Maybe it is Steve came” you assumed. He headed to the door and opened it “Perfect timing, pal” Bucky grumbled but suddenly he realized it was not Steve.

There was stranger who looked at him intently and your heart dropped when you heard his voice “I am looking for Y/N. Is she here?” he asked arrogantly. Bucky frowned and crossed his arms “Who are you?”   You appeared behind Bucky and said, “It is okay, Buck. I can deal with it. What do you need?” He cheekily grinned, “Y/N, it is nice to see you again. Why are you so rude, baby? Can’t I just miss you and wanted to see you?” Bucky stepped forward but you stopped him and answered, “Just leave, ok?  We were done long time ago. Stop making scene here” Your ex licked his lips and muttered, “Well, you didn’t say it when you were under me” It was his mistake.

Before he couldn’t register what happened Bucky’s fist ended up on his jaw. “Listen; get the hell off from here. If I ever saw you again, I would make sure you would lose ability to walk for long time. Understood?” Bucky caught him by shirtfront, deployed and kicked his ass. Your ex was scared and run like devil from holy water. Bucky was satisfied but when he saw you, his face expression changed.

You walked to the sofa and stared into space. “Baby? Is there something you want tell about?” he kneeled in front of you and cupped your face in his hands. Tears rolled down your face and Bucky got worried “It is okay. I am here. He can’t harm you. I got you” you hugged him and buried your face in his chest. “There is. He was my first love. You know, the boy that mom tells stay away from. I was sure I could change him to the best way, but God, how wrong I was! The worst part of it is that I was so in love and blindly accepted everything he did. Then he started to blame me in things I did not do. Moreover, I believed. I argued with my family with my friends.  Nevertheless, it did not stop ruining our destroyed relationship. At some point, I realized that it could not continue like this. To my shame, I ran away from him and I didn’t know how he found me” You smiled bitterly. Bucky caressed your cheek Красавица, *beautiful* you shouldn’t blame yourself for falling in love. All of us made mistakes and learnt something from it. Just know I always be here for you. Whatever happens,ok?” You smiled softly to him and suggested “Thanks. Let’s watch movie, don’t we?” He kissed you in forehead “Let’s watch”

You cheer when Ong comes back with the tubs of fried chicken, hand outreached and eager to feed your starving body. 

“Yes!!” you cheer when he places the chicken down on the coffee table. 

You take the initiative to open the box since he seemed to be doing it too slowly for your taste. 

Ong laughs at your eagerness, “Gee, had I known that you were going to date the chicken instead of me, I wouldn't’ve suggested chicken and a movie for our first date." 

"Shush it, Ong,” you point a chicken leg at him, “It was a long day today,” you sigh. 

He sits up on the couch from his place by the table, “Wanna tell me about it?" 

"Nah,” you smile, “I don’t wanna ruin our first date together." 

"Aw,” he leans forward and embraces you, causing you to hold out your greasy chicken, “What are best-friend-boyfriends for?" 

"Dates and healing,” you smile as he pulls away, “Thank you, this is the best first date I’ve ever been on with my best friend!" 

"Um yeah!” he folds his arms across his chest in a sassy sort of manner, “I’d hope so!" 

You laugh in contentment, leaning into Ong as he lays on the couch to comfortably choose a movie, your delicious chicken in hand. 

a/n: for @ohmygoshcheese I hope you like it my love!! this was cute and fun to write!! ahhh also Ong isn’t so greasy haha

Gonna go ahead and say if you dislike MJ’s character in Spider-Man: Homecoming because of the deviation from her character in the comics then I also expect you to be concerned about:

-Why the Vulture isn’t a 70 year old man considering it’s a big plot point in the comics

-Why Ned Leeds is Peter Parker’s best friend, extremely goofy and nerdy, despite being very formal in the comics

-Why Flash Thompson is arguably just as smart as Peter, and resorts to verbal bullying rather than physical bullying and being fairly incompetent in the early comics

Among many other major character differences. It was a great movie guys. Don’t ruin it for yourself by expecting everything to be exactly how it was in the comics. This is coming from a long time fan and someone who has read every single ASM comic up through the Clone Conspiracy…
