InuYasha Favourite Moments: The sacred tree…this is the tree on which InuYasha was sealed. Five hundred years ago…this is where I first met InuYasha. Why did I ever meet him? If it were going to hurt this much, I wish I had never met him! But…I want to see him. I want to see InuYasha once more. I…I’m in love with InuYasha.
Tyler Posey- you’ve taught me through Scott to never give up and never run. To always look for your friends during the hard times and always stick together. It’s okay to be afraid but it’s not to let it stop you. Thank you for being the best Scott McCall there could ever be.
Dylan O’Brien- you’ve shown everyone that you can still make people laugh in a horrible situation, which was usually not right at all lmao. But thank you for being the most sarcastic character to ever exist and the character in teen wolf to make me cry the most. Thank you for putting your soul into Stiles Stilinski. I will miss him.
Holland Roden- thank you for playing the most badass banshee ever and showing us and Lydia it is OK to be yourself. Lydia learned to always be there for your friends, no matter what. You made Lydia’s improvement so much more special by really getting into your role and becoming Lydia Martin, the most caring girl in Beacon Hills.
Shelley Hennig (my favorite person in the world)- thank you for basically being yourself as Malia. You are literally her and I’m forever thankful you were the person to play Malia Tate. You were the funniest, most sarcastic, but caring in your ways, girl on teen wolf. You became Lydia’s best friend after Allison and your guys connection made the feelings so much more real. Thank you for being part of Teen Wolf.
Cody Christian- I don’t even know where to start with you. The way you portrayed Theo was amazing and I will never ever forget him. You showed us that the way people act isn’t always their fault. Theo was raised around no love or compassion but you showed us how Theo could change for the better and he isn’t heartless. You made me feel the emotions Theo was experiencing and the way you made Theo go from being selfish and letting people die to being the bait and helping Liam not kill people. You showed us what it’s like for someone who was shown no love or care, to love and care about those around him. I don’t know what else to say but thank you for being Theo Raeken. I learned so much from him.
Dylan Sprayberry- oh Liam Liam Liam. I love you to pieces Dylan but I won’t lie, I didn’t like Liam too much at first and then once Hayden came around I didn’t like Liam at all. But boy have you changed Liam in 6b. You’ve showed us that Liam has changed explicitly and has learned to make the right choices. He has learned and listened to Scott and is trying his best to be a great beta. He isn’t hurting the ones who hurt him, (Nolan and Gabe) and is earning some of Scott’s qualities. Liam has definitely showed us that you can hide your words but you can’t hide your actions. AKA, Thiam. You’ve made us believe Liam really cares about everyone, even the ones other people hate. Liam pretends he doesn’t like Theo but it’s a lie lol. Your and Cody’s connection has made your scenes so much more emotional and believable and we can tell Liam truly cares about Theo. I want to say thank you for making me love Liam and I will miss him to pieces.
My favorite Liam scene lol ^
I’m gonna end with Liam because it’s taken me over 2 hours to write this because I’m so emotional. But I wanna say thanks for being the hilarious Hale family to Ian and Tyler and there’s many more people I want to thank but it will take forever, so.
Thank you for making such a huge impact on my life Teen Wolf cast. I will forever be grateful for this show and all of you and I’ll never forget.
- Cinematographically, it was wonderful, had lots of very beautiful shots, especially in memory sequences, those were spectacular. The sort of art-come-to-life motif was used, which reminded me of WW, but it was also different and didn’t feel like a ripoff at all, and even when it wasn’t art-come-to-life the structuring of the scenes was like medieval epic paintings so it gave it that vibe anyway
- But it also let the emotional moments be emotional, without the tone-destroying gags that have become standard in Marvel films. This was an excellent example of a movie that made me laugh out loud so many times, but didn’t make jokes at the expense of the emotional weight of the plot.
- Everything about the character Cork, the rock guy (voiced by director Taika Waititi)
- Bruce Banner being so confused and also terrified “I’M ON AN ALIEN PLANET” “You’ve been on a planet before” “ONLY ONE”
- Between the Grand Master and the spaceship battles and the gags and the colours parts of it felt very much like a Guardians of the Galaxy film (and I fucking love those and mean that as the highest compliment)
- It was BRIGHT, even when it was sad, or evil, or whatever, the colours were BRIGHT and it was like reading old-school comics and everything’s in primary colours and it’s tacky but its so so good
- The fantasy blended with sci-fi thing was really well done, and I don’t know if it’s the vaguely medieval aesthetic of the asgardians or the fact that most of the extras had NZ accents or the cinematography, but parts of it reminded me Very Much of the og LOTR movies
- Tbh though the whole Dr Strange bit didn’t need to be in the movie. It was pointless and meh.
- VALKYRIE was so good!!!! She was allowed to react to her trauma in a bad way and still come through on the other side as one of the good guys. It was good. That’s not usually a luxury afforded to characters who are not white guys. (and sometimes not even then *cough* tonystark *cough*)
- Also she made this spectacular face every time she got to Fuck Some Shit Up and it was amazing
- also Chris Hemsworth is not usually my type but his character was such a sweetheart in this movie and I was rEALly into that
- SO MANY BROTHER FEELINGS. It definitely wasn’t the Big Emotional Moment of the movie, but I actually teared up when Thor and Loki had that convo in the lift about how they took different paths and stuff because the same thing happened to me and my brothers and it was just such a spectacular and realistically presented sibling relationship. Then there was also Thor bickering with Hulk and with Valkyrie, and shittalking Hela, Loki pretending he doesn’t know him, actually every single relationship in that movie was a spectacularly accurate sibling relationship honestly it was so good.
- no forced romance!
- Heimdall is so cool <3
- Loki is the fucking king of Drama hands down “BEHOLD LOKI YOUR SAVIOUR” like, you’re right, but also, chill. Also, the shaekesperian play-within-a-play about how much everyone should miss him and the giant statue and honestly King of Drama.
- Giant Dog
- Sure, there were vague references to things that happened in other MCU films, but you didn;t have to know shit about them to get what was going on. It was good.
- Anyway I’m in love with this movie thank you and good night
i’m relistening to the taz finale and honestly the arms outstretched remix and lucretia (reprise) scene make me so fucking emotional like i have actual chills just listening to it like so few things have ever made me… feel This Much and the fact that a fucking /podcast/ does it is still so amazing and like it shouldn’t be surprising because music more so than any visual medium has made me feel emotions but if u’d told me a year ago that an audio-only medium would bring me to tears i Would Not have believed you and this is just amazing and i love it a lot
“When we had our Inter-High match against Seijoh… When the team was in trouble, I was brought in as the pinch server for the first time. We weren’t that far behind in points. If I had made it, we might have won. And yet, I blew it… When I think about that happening again…”
Michael Fassbender did something so wonderful in this movie… We’re at the end of the scene, and he asked me not to call cut and when the scene was over, he continued and did something that made me cry in the tent; I’ve never done that before. The head of my company grabbed a Kleenex. Simon Kinberg, the writer who has no emotions at all, actually became emotional. It was so beautiful, I’ve never seen an actor do this for me and [Fassbender] just took the scene to a whole ‘nother level. It’s a heartbreaking scene, not a typical comic book movie scene at all, so let’s hope it makes the cut. But after he did it, I went up to him, hugged him and said ‘Thank you, Michael, for that gift. Now I need you to do it again.’ And he did it, and [frick]ing rocked it again… with full emotion.”
“This guy’s amazing, he can go from the most emotionally devastating moment to breakdancing to ‘Blurred Lines’ in between takes. He, James McAvoy, and my villain Oscar Issac are among the three greatest living actors in cinema, in their age category by far. They will not be lauded, or rewarded, because they’re in an X-Men movie and comic book movies just don’t get that kind of shit. But they deliver some extraordinary performances particularly in X-Men: Apocalypse. The movie is very emotional. I love the pathos of the characters and their relationships
Michael Fassbender did something so wonderful in this movie… I just saw him in Jobs last night - Holy shit! Jesus. He should win the thing, the Oscar. But anyway, Fassbender does something in this movie (X-Men: Apocalypse) where we’re at the end of the scene, and he asked me not to call cut and when the scene was over, he continued and did something that made me cry in the tent; I’ve never done that before. The head of my company grabbed a Kleenex. Simon Kinberg, the writer who has no emotions at all, actually became emotional. It was so beautiful, I’ve never seen an actor do this for me and he just took the scene to a whole another level. It’s a heartbreaking scene, not a typical comic book movie scene at all, so let’s hope it makes the cut. But after he did it, I went up to him, hugged him and said ‘Thank you, Michael, for that gift. Now I need you to do it again.’ And he did it, and fucking rocked it again… with full emotion. This guy is amazing.

Oh yes there's no denying that Isayama is a messy writer
His plot drags at some points, stops, then shoots forward full speed and the survey corps is obliterated in the space of a single second, like the political arc was hard to read, and the secrets revealed still left us in the dark with more questions which I thought was a little redundant and probably just added because snk got popular and he didn’t want it ending too quickly.
He jumped into the next arc really quickly as thought he HAD planned that one but added the other one after it got popular.
Sometimes weird things that shouldn’t happen happen for the sake of drama, like a dude dragging Erwin’s ass all the way up a wall so Levi could make a choice.
But when you think about what it ultimately adds to the story, I think he’s still a strong writer.
Was it weird? Yeah.
But Levi having to fight eren and mikasa, then choosing armin even after they were gone, well, that was an emotional scene, all of the flashbacks were so perfectly organized, and it just really ended this arc with an emotional bang.
It had to happen. I’m glad it happened, it destroyed me emotionally and made me love Armin and Erwin even more.
This goddamn chapter was like the culmination of the rest of them.
There were weak middle chapters but I think
It’s more important to have a strong finish.
I have to type my feelings they have nowhere else to go okay and I need everyone to think about this
(There are tiny spoilers in here so keep away from this post if you’re worried about that but a lot of this can be glimpsed in trailers and I tried to be intentionally mostly vague while still pointing things out)
BIG HERO 6 YOU GUYS
BIG HERO 6
okay so. SO. I am still crying over Tadashi Hamada and Baymax and Hiro’s story in general but wait no that’s not what this was supposed to be about lemme just skip over that because
RIGHT NOW I REALLY NEED TO DISCUSS THESE 4 AND I NEED YOU TO READ IT EVEN THOUGH IT’S LONG
• GoGo. “Woman up.” YES. FRICK YES. I AM IN LOOOOVE. And I also love how she was this tough girl who’s amazing at car chases and independent and stubborn but she’s not broody. SHE’S the one who pulls Hiro into a hug in one of the most emotional scenes. Like, I don’t think you understand how important this is to me?? She’s just as emotionally involved and present in everything as everyone else is; she doesn’t have to be declared a “tough girl” or “"strong character”“ by not having emotions. I was so afraid they’d make her emotionally distant or gruff but they didn’t and it made me so happy????? And even though she’s presented as this "tough girl” character, her style is still STYLISH at times in her own way; I particularly loved her superrrr short cuttoff jeans coupled with leggings. And then there’s also, like, her sleeveless white tanktop (“wife beater” but I hate that term)? I need to see the movie again purely to pay attention to her outfits. But basically… STEREOTYPES: DISMISSED.
• Honey Lemon. Tall willowy nerdy spectacled GIRLY Honey Lemon, who loves bright colors and loves chemistry and is infinitely excited by FRIENDS and INVENTIONS and ALL THE SCIENCE THINGS and takes freaking selfies and wears heels because she loves them even though she’s ridiculously tall. Whose chemical weapons are /IN A PURSE/, and her explosions are /IN BRIGHT COLORS/, and HER HAIR IS ALWAYS STYLIZED. Like, the ideas that women can’t be extremely feminine AND clever and that taking selfies or being excited by life is immature? Yeah RIGHT. Honey Lemon flounces by in her pink and orange and says your viewpoints are narrow as heck. STEREOTYPES: SMASHED.
• Fred, who was comic relief, but was never once diminished by the others as being lesser because he wasn’t the “genius” brand of nerd. Fred, who just purely loved hanging out with these REALLY COOL people (and how awesome is that, like, friendly reminder that Science Nerds are shown as COOL in this film?) and even though he was the “comic book nerd” brand of nerd and they all teased him about it a little bit they ultimately loved him for it even though he was the “different” one in the group. Fred, who was never portrayed as lesser because he wasn’t studious and even though he wasn’t ACADEMICALLY smart he still was shown to ultimately be PRACTICALLY smart and he had many ideas because smartness comes in different forms. Which is so important and even if it’s not explicitly stated it’s still there and I fudging love it???? He’s shown as proof that what people assume about you isn’t always correct at first, because even if you wear your underwear in ABSURD WAYS and don’t love to study you aren’t LESSER OR AN IDIOT. And his character was a reminder that you can’t always assume you know someone’s home or family life just by looking at them. STEREOTYPES: INCINERATED. (Joke intended)
• & Wasabi. WASABIIIIIIII. Y'all. Freaking Wasabi. He makes my heart so happy with his existence. Firstly, he’s a POC whose voice doesn’t have Stereotypical Black Guy Inflections/Vocabulary, and it’s pretty sad that that’s something I feel the need to point out but it’s important to me because I feel like it’s a form of representation not done very often. Secondly, HE IS THE ONE WHO ACTS AS THE VOICE OF REASON AND IS SLIGHTLY NEUROTIC. He’s, like, the Hermione of the group? What the frick? “Everything has its place.” I was silently SCREAMING over how specific he is about his stuff, and how he’s the one to be like, DO YOU GUYS NOT CARE HOW DANGEROUS THIS IS?? And his DRIVING I was in HYSTERICS I’m not gonna say anything more specific because spoilers but OH MY GOSH. Wtf wtf maybe my mind is just drawing a blank (correct me if I’m wrong, I may be forgetting things in my excitement!) but I can’t remember any other time there’s been an animated black character who’s been treated in this way, which is basically the complete opposite of how POCs are typically most often treated in media?? Also: I love his hair. But anyway, STEREOTYPES: DESTROYED. Ahhhhhh!!!
this is so long I’m so sorry but the point is
• SEE THIS MOVIE
IT HAS SO MANY IMPORTANT LESSONS IN IT AND THAT IS SOMETHING I WOULD NEED A WHOLE OTHER POST TO GO OVER AND I’D NEED ANOTHER POST TO COVER HOW GREAT BAYMAX AND THE BROTHERS ARE AND THE STORYLINE ITSELF IS SO BEYOND GREAT TOO BUT
THIS IS AN “APPRECIATE THESE FOUR CHARACTERS AND WHAT THEY STAND FOR AND SHOW LITTLE KIDS” POST
and because ultimately, stereotype smashing aside, the entire premise of this film is that nerds can be heroes too and IT’S COOL TO BE SMART AND ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT ALL KINDS OF THINGS AND LIFE IN GENERAL and I’ve already seen some stories about little kids saying they want to learn science now “like Honey Lemon” etc. and that makes my heart happy
so SUPPORT THIS MOVIE Y'ALL
YOU’LL ALSO REALLY ENJOY IT BECAUSE IT’S ABSOLUTELY GREAT AND YOU’LL LAUGH A N D CRY WOOOO
thank you for your time, please always remind people of the greatness that is this film, have a lovely day, etc. etc., thanks again, sayonara~
Full review/thoughts on How To Train Your Dragon 2
For me, HTTYD 2 was good, stunning, and insanely emotional, however not as good as I thought it would be. Here are my full thoughts on the movie. (This is really long idk if anyone’s actually going to read this)
