this was just one of my favorite lines from the film

2

Chris Markus: We always wanted to approach Sam through the prism of a being fellow veteran. Someone who could speak to Steve on that level as opposed to, you know, because he’s Captain America. And also we brought up the idea that Steve, in addition to everything else he’s gone through, spent four years in World War II. That’s very traumatic stuff. And he has never had a chance to decompress about any of it. 

Anthony Russo: One of my favorite lines from him is, where he says: “I’m more of a soldier than a spy.” I just loved that so much because it speaks to his relationship with Cap and their nature.

Joe Russo: You guys did a great job with this scene. This is probably the hardest scene in the movie because it leads to the biggest buy in the film, which is - well, maybe there’s a couple of other big buys - that Cap is gonna go back to a guy he met jogging on the Mall when his life is in danger because he’s the only guy he can trust. So it was important that these two connect on a very deep level, an emotional level in this scene.

Chris Markus: It’s always a credit to Mackie.

Steve McFeely: Yeah. I trust Mackie.

Chris Markus: You would go to Anthony Mackie. Some people you wouldn’t go to. 

Joe Russo: Let’s talk about Mackie for a second. It’s a reason we cast him is one, you know, I’ve never not seen a truthful moment from him on screen, and two, he has this incredible ability to combine charm and integrity. A difficult thing to do is to be funny and convey integrity at the same time.

Steve McFeely: He’s not shallow.

Joe Russo: He has great depth as an actor which allows Steve to feel the depth, the audience to feel the depth, which makes you believe that Steve would trust this guy even though their relationship is so new.

Dune (Re-posted with some color) 

I gave in to the siren song of Dune and was dashed upon the rocks like so many concept artists before me. There just isn’t time to render these, but I’m reasonably pleased with the line-work, so here they are!

Some context: I fell into a Dune-hole recently which started by stumbling across the INCREDIBLE art from what would have been Jodorowsky’s Dune film. That inspired me to re-watch the David Lynch movie again (one of my favorites). At that point, I had to read the book again. In the middle of my read-through, I watched a couple Tarsem Singh movies and my brain made a connection that I couldn’t shake loose:

I want a 4 hour Dune movie designed by Tarsem Singh’s crew (production designer, art director, costume designer, cinematographer, etc…)

So, in order to get that thought out of my brain, I took a clumsy swing at designing the cast of Dune through the lens of Tarsem Singh’s crew. To me, that meant making each character an operatic or theatrical expression of their role in the story. Visual storytelling cranked to eleven.

All Hints Connecting BTS x Anohana

BTS Theory Master List

After I made my Anohana theory which a lot of people are really liking are interested in, more people started reblogging it and adding things and photos that added further proof to the idea that the HYYH concept could’ve been inspired from Anohana.

The first and most recent is this tweet by the devil himself Bang PD-nim on his personal twitter account ‘hitmanb’ with a photo of the main title of the anime.

His tweet in both Korean and Japanese translate to something along the lines that it was a nice animation and a good film relating to youth and that he recommends it.

The other clue was as interview for THE STAR magazine that our boys were featured in. During their interview with Jungkook, he was asked his favorite Japanese Animation was.

translations credit to: @kimmy-trans - view the full post here~

Another hint was all the way back during their Just One Day era.

Taehyung and Jimin were featured in a photo in which they had Anohana open on the Netflix menu.

And is it any coincidence that now Taehyung and Jimin are back to the same hair colors they had during the JOD era as they do now?

There’s also the ice cream that Taehyung was eating on a Live V App Broadcast about a month ago.

Taehyung then goes and grabs  very specific one and shows it to the camera. He and Jimin both know not to display brand names but Taehyung still does it and long enough for us to see it.

Which happens to be the exact same ice cream that’s eaten in the anime.

Probably just a coincidence~

There’s also the shocking resemblance of these two photos~

And within my theory there were a few scenes in the anime that looked very similar to some of their concept photos but I didn’t include this one that was submitted to me~

Just a few coincidences right? It’s probably nothing~

oh my god but imagine:

  • tony kicking up a major fuss and being all dramatic and personally affronted when the avengers break or lose their extremely expensive state-of-the-art gear in the line of battle because every single one of those pieces of tech is a work of art tyvm
  • except for some bizarre inexplicable reason whenever steve does it tony just rolls his eyes and goes all fond and secretly makes his repairs and new tech the highest priority on his never-ending to-do list
  • but he doesn’t know that steve quite enjoys going out of his way to break his gear or make unnecessarily large holes in his suit because he gets to hang out in tony’s lab and see him fuss over the tech or sometimes even him if he shows up still sort of bleeding and roughed up 
  • no really who throws a motorcycle at the enemy
  • steve’s favorite look on tony, apart from disgruntled and sulky about people breaking his precious avengers monogrammed stuff, is tank top greasemonkey which is apparently the requirement whenever he’s working on auto repairs
  • clint finally gets sick of his subpar arrow maintenance and has JARVIS lock them in the garage until they either bang the sexual frustration out of their system or stop being dumbasses and ask each other out
Just got back from The Magnificent Seven

and UM

Red Harvest and Jack Horne’s relationship (it was there, I ended up following it through the story as one of the things that just seemed to POP to me) was beautiful, it might have been my favorite part of the film. It shined so bright and affected me emotionally because I wasn’t expecting it. Literally “You little shit. We have a lot to talk about.” was my favorite line of the movie (I hope at least one person remembers this line). I laughed so heartily at the affection in it that the people behind me kicked my chair.

I literally laughed at almost everything Jack said I loved him so much

I demand a Red Harvest spin off

Billy teaching knife class and the students not giving af and he was like HEY WTF GUYS

btw the ending of the movie…I won’t say…but that was cute and I want THAT spinoff too

Billy and Goody don’t touch me, “WHEREVER I GO, BILLY GOES” -ugly sobbing-

Vasquez shooting that guy over and over again for Faraday (still dont touch me)

and Faraday was adorable af 

and Vasquez saying cabron made me laugh so hard i love that word

the damsel in distress that was actually not annoying

the bad guy i actually liked even though he was a dick

that scene with him and Chisolm acting was on point

YO THIS MOVIE JUST EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS AND IM SO HAPPY BECAUSE IT WAS SO GOOD

“When did you stop being a poet?”

Now, this is one of my favorites - this cute poem called “One Boy Told Me” written and spoken by Naomi Shihab Nye. She says the lines of the poem came from her son when he was just about two to three years old, and she copied his words down and created sweet poems.

Naomi Shihab Nye cites how William Stafford poses the question “When did you stop being a poet?” and explains that we’re all poets when we’re young, and some of us “just tried to keep up the habit.”

These are ten random favorites of photos taken by photographer Sandra Franklin. She has granted me permission to share them at my Tumblr blog.

I’m greatly impressed with them all. She captured some wonderful expressions and angles of Peter Capaldi, fan encounters (the one with the boy looking at the Doctor at a distance is adorable), and even some stunning shots around the filming site. I was amused by the up close photos of Peter’s Doctor outfit. The one of his pant legs and shoes is a great way to get cosplay ideas. I can’t explain it, but there’s something I like about the black and white photo with just his red coat lining. Very nice photo editing there. :)

All photos were taken at Caerphilly Castle by Sandra and were from her Facebook page, Sandra Franklin Photography. You can check out other incredible photos from the same location in the album, Doctor Who Filming, Caerphilly Castle, May 2015.

Bogart My Balls - crisscolfer fic

Title: Bogart My Balls
Pairing: Chris/Darren
Length/Rating: Short / PG-13 I guess?
Summary: Uhm…bad jokes?

AN: There is no plot, only this.

***

When Chris thinks back, he probably should have seen it coming.  So to speak.

Some of the women in wardrobe are discussing their favorite romantic movies and the best lines from the films and Darren gets that look in his eyes, the one that means that whatever is about to come out of his mouth wouldn’t be any good.  Or even remotely appropriate.  Chris walks out of the trailer before his fitting his over, just so he doesn’t have to hear it.

He gets the first text two and a half minutes later.

Let me just say, without hope or agenda…suck my dick.

Allied (2016)
Movie Review by: Will Whalen

Allied is the newest film from one of my favorite directors, Robert Zemeckis. There’s just a special feeling going to the theater alone, and seeing a new film made by one of the best directors of all time. Allied stars Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, among others, and is about an intelligence officer and a resistance fighter during WWII who go undercover as a couple behind enemy lines where they soon fall in love. After they reunite romantically in London, their marriage is tested by the government from the war. If you follow our page, you know there are never spoilers unless noted beforehand. Everything that I say will have been shown in the trailers, so if you’ve seen that, you’re safe.

I’m a huge Robert Zemeckis fan and many of his films are some all time favorites of mine. He continuously impresses me with everything he does, so of course I was excited for this. He once again does a terrific job behind the camera. With gorgeously crafted shots and fantastic cinematography, this film looks great. Although, I feel like if you’re going to make a war film, then it should be shot with film instead of digital. However, it looks gorgeous either way and didn’t bother me a bit. Zemeckis is a genius at crafting scenes and building up tension or simply just making a great scene and there are some fantastic scenes in this film. None of which I will spoil, but there are some that just blew me away. One of those has something to do with a car in the desert, and it was one that I particularly enjoyed.

Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard are both fantastic in this. Brad Pitt, as always, gives an excellent performance. Nothing better than seeing him kill some nazis and kick ass in World War II. Marion Cotillard gives a really great and subtle performance here as well. The rest of the cast also does a pretty great job, but they kind of get lost in the background. 

Problems that I had is that the pacing sometimes felt all over the place. There were a couple times when you could feel yourself getting a little bored or a scene would go on a bit too long. The relationship between Pitt and Colitard also, at times, doesn’t really feel urgent or it may not get that tense and suspenseful feeling. There’s also a couple of scenes that you can kind of tell that there’s use of CG, but it never looks bad. The set design in this and the general feel is great and feels authentic for the most part, which is something Zemeckis does well. I’ve heard other critics say that this pays a little too much tribute to Casablanca, which I have seen, but I barely remember it, so I’m not going to grade it lower because of that. Although, I can see a few similarities.

I felt like this film, although I enjoyed myself very much so while watching this, could have been done a lot better. This could have easily been a three hour epic, but sometimes feels like a basic retelling of a story that you may have seen before. I do think that most people will enjoy this, and I myself, enjoyed it a good bit. It’s a very good looking movie with great direction, two fine and pretty actors, and some genuinely jaw dropping scenes.

I’m going to give Allied…

3.5 out of 5 stars.

ST Advent Day 2: Fave Film

I’m sure I’m in the same boat with a few other people, but I have to say The One With the Whales is my favorite. :)

It’s charming and soft and fun and it’s just all around a good time. How can you not like it? Though I will give a shout out to Beyond because it’s a good (fantastic actually) comeback from Into Darkness.
