logan is one of the best movies i’ve ever seen

- great portrayal of what it’s like to live with a parent (or grandparent) that’s deteriorating and can no longer be the foundation of your world–instead, you have to be theirs

-  perfect logan. like. the movies have never really hit that mark until now. this was 110% on point, from the gruffness to the self-hatred to the sheer, pigheaded refusal to let anyone near (while simultaneously not letting them go)

- perfect laura. they captured both the feral, vicious, somewhat creepy (let’s be real) side of her character and the vulnerable, wistful side really, really well. keen was incredible. i liked that they did a variation on the clone thing so it was still there but more believable 

- perfect depiction of logan and laura’s relationship. i was worried they’d make it too sweet or too aggressive, but they struck the perfect balance of awkwardness/resentment/longing that’s in the comics

- ugh shane i love that book/movie so much 

- adult fears. so many adult fears

I’m not sure I mentioned this recently enough or not but I FUCKING love velvet goldmine.

I feel like I can talk about it for ages. The themes, the colors, the way Arthur’s face twitches any time anyone says “curt wild”

Like I will literally fight anyone who talks shit about this movie, the acting is fucking superb. The things they can convey with just a look.

The way everything is bright and saturated in the 70s portions but dull and washed out in the 80s.

The connections to Dorian Grey! The Oscar Wilde references! The music!

And yet I still feel like there’s so much that eludes me. So many subtleties that I’m just missing. Ugh I love this movie SO much

Love, loss, the inevitability of change, bitter nostalgia,

Random question: how do you feel about the little mermaid sequel? i personally like i think ariel grows as a person, but i feel a lot of people dont like it

Ellie: It is literally my second favorite sequel after Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas. I freaking love Melody and used to watch the VHS tape every day in second grade (I even had a friend named Sebastian funny enough, we would joke about it all the time!) I know a lot of people hate how Ariel turned into her dad, yet actually a lot of kids act like their parents if they have a family of their own. For me, it’s a wonderful sequel and the duet For a Moment is really beautiful for a Disney sequel. Just ugh, love that movie so much and I really need it on BluRay.

Jen: I don’t like the movie because I don’t think it’s an accurate portrayal of how Ariel would act as an adult. I know people can ‘grow up’ when they have a kid but Ariel is a totally different person in the film. Also, it’s just a reverse copy & paste of the first movie and Melody is very annoying. Out of all the princesses to choose to portray as a parent Ariel would be my last choice– I’d much rather see Belle’s child, or Jasmine’s.
