@albusmortem

is it worth seeing?? D:  I haven’t seen it yet

SO WORTH IT

I cried

during a fucking wolverine movie

so good. And since it’s rated R, Wolverine finally gets to be Wolverine, with all the bad attitude and bad habits we all know he has but never really got to see through the other movies, all served with a decent side of gore. 

The acting was great, even the children. The new character, the little girl, you’ll love her within the first few minutes of her showing up, they did great with her character and the actress did great with the portrayal. The cinematography was good. The storyline was really fantastic and tragic. It was both something new and nostalgic all rolled into one and parts of it were honestly painful to watch.

If you get the chance, definitely go watch it.

Anime Recommendations!

Looking for an anime to watch? Well here are some TV shows and movies I really recommend:

Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit (tv show)

Read or Die the TV (tv show, 26 episodes)

About three sisters who have the ability to manipulate paper and are tasked with protecting a writer.

Read or Die (OVA, 3 episodes)

A prequel to the tv show in which they go into the writer’s past.

Eureka 7 (tv show, 50)

Mecha, boy-meets-girl anime basically lol.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (movie)

When a girl gains the ability to literally leap backwards in time, she finds it comes with some serious consequences.

Planetes (tv show, 26 episodes)

A hard science show about the trials and tribulations a group of people are faced with, coming to terms with their jobs as basically garbage collectors in space.

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 (tv show, 11 episodes)

The journey of a little girl and her brother trying to make their way home after being separated from their parents after a magnitude 8.0 earthquake hits Japan. The twist ending tore my heart to shreds!

Kill La Kill (tv show, 24 episodes)

The most over-the-top and energetic anime I’ve ever seen. I don’t even know how to describe it. Just watch the first episode lol

School Live! (tv show, 12 episodes)

The show is not as it seems at first. I don’t want to spoil it, but I do recommend watching the first episode. See how quickly you catch on to what’s really happening.

Nichijou (tv show, 26 episodes)

Literally anything but what the title translates to (”My Ordinary Life”). Very comedic and random show. I’ve actually never seen complete episodes, just clips from them. But I hear it’s really good.

Cowboy Bebop (tv show, 26 episodes)

Of course can’t have a list of favorite anime without including this. A rag-tag group of bounty hunters in space.

Birdy the Mighty: Decode (tv show, 13 episodes)

An alien federation agent is undercover on Earth investigating interplanetary criminals when she accidentally kills a human boy. To make up for what she did, he must share her body while they repair his.

Literally Any Studio Ghibli Film

Just pick one, any one, all of them preferably lol

Now and Then, Here and There

Very intense show. Very dark, gritty and depressing but deals on topics such as war, child armies, rape and such so well. But it is very sad and does not hold anything back.

Gunslinger Girl

About an organization which takes little girls who are about to die and gives them second chances at life as trained assassins


I’ll probably add more in the future, but yeah, check these out if you’re interested. Or let me know if you’ve seen any of them and what you think!

“The bromance. The captivating couple”

Dong Wook. It was so nice working with you.I hope we can work in another drama again. I miss you.
- Mr Goblin, Gong Yoo hyung. We had beautiful days. I wasn’t lonely, thanks to you. If we could work together again. I think we can have more fun.

so rogue one vader actually took the time to:

  1. drain his bacta tank
  2. have someone help him out
  3. put on his entire armour from head to toe
  4. stride out amidst the fog to meet krennic for five minutes, and ,
  5. diss him for his delay with the death star and his lofty ambitions

i aim to reach this level of dramatic and pettiness 

Okay okay okay I know I panicked over the whole “LeFou is gay” thing, but I’ve seen it and I’ve got to say…they made it work. (SPOILERS) LeFou in this version is more of a good guy who fell in with a bad guy he rather quickly figures out is bad. He often tries to steer Gaston away from doing evil shit but gets ignored. He ditches Gaston for good and gets a happy ending, possibly with a boyfriend. It’s leaps and bounds better than I thought we would get, and it’s a good baby step in the right direction for Disney.

I’ve just realized that nowadays, reading Harry Potter doesn’t mean reading only the seven books, but reading as well

  • The tales of Beedle the Bard
  • Quidditch through the ages
  • Fantastic beasts and where to find them (by Newt Scamander)
  • Fantastic beasts and where to find them (the original screenplay)
  • The cursed child

Guys

This, this is huge

And Harry Potter, is a legend

I got dragged to see Beauty and the Beast on Thursday and it ended up making me want to revisit the doodles I did when working on @the-flame-and-hawks-eye‘s birthday present  (◠‿  ◠✿)
