“Ever since we were kids it’s been drilled into us that our purpose is to explore the universe, you know? Outer space is where we’ll find the answers to why we’re here and where we come from. It’s like everyone’s searching for these answers 800 million miles away and the truth is the answers are right in front of us… I know why I’m here.” “Me too.”
Debating whether or not I should go see La La Land. Thoughts? (I know you've seen it, so I just thought I would ask)
It was my favorite movie of the whole year. Story aside, it’s visually stunning. Most beautiful movie you will see all year. It throws back to old Hollywood and vintage films. It can be really artsy at points so just expect that. The music is also really good. Everyone I’ve talked to likes it, but some are disappointed with the ending of the film, so fair warning. I was personally ok with it all.
I would 100% recommend it. It’s going to get a lot of awards and nominations so it might be cool to see what all the buzz is about.
i went to see Eagle Huntress today and honestly, it was so wonderful. it’s about this thirteen-year-old Kazakh girl, Aisholpan, who hunts with a golden eagle and it’s just a visually stunning movie, all those shots of the eagle flying above frozen plains, but also, it was sweet. like first of all, Aisholpan is thirteen, and she just adores this flying murder machine, doesn’t stop smiling for a single minute she’s in its presence. the eagle’s wingspan is so much bigger than her, and it’s got talons like knives and a vicious beak, and it’s generally optimized for fucking shit up, and she strokes it constantly and reassures it, keeps telling it how good and brave it is. she climbs a cliff to catch it, she goes hunting in the mountains with it, she feeds it by hand–she’s so unafraid. and she’s a normal kid. she paints her nails with her sister and likes putting sparkly bows in her hair, and she commands this flying death machine, i don’t think i can emphasize enough how big and murder-optimized golden eagles are.
oh yeah, also there was a part in the movie where over dinner, Aisholpan’s mom asks how school was that day, and Aisholpan says the students were having wrestling matches and she beat everyone, including all the boys, and then just gives her family the most angelic smile
anyway what a good, sweet, kickass, awesome child.
the grand budapest hotel (wes anderson, 2014) la haine (mathieu kassovitz, 1995) a clockwork orange (stanley kubrick, 1971) the great gatsby (baz luhrmann, 2013) alice in wonderland (clyde geronimi, wilfred jackson, hamilton luske, 1951)
opinion: 2d (animated) movies are more visually stunning than cgi movies. i’m not decrying the work that goes into cgi movies (i know they’re every bit as labor intensive as 2d ones) but aside from book of life there’s never been a scene in a cgi movie that absolutely floored me
I imagine they’ll turn the villain into a protagonist, just like they did with Maleficent. We’re getting all of these live-action adaptations on Disney properties, yet they still won’t make Tron 3. In my opinion, Tron 3 seems like it would be a much better project than Cruella.
Geektyrant’s Joey Paur on Disney’s upcoming project “Cruella”, spitting truth once again.
And wow. It was AMAZING. Seriously, it’s put me in the best mood and I can’t stop grinning. Reasons why it was so great?
it is so fucking pretty like holy shit the scenery and the colours and the costumes and the magic/special effects it’s one of the most visually STUNNING movies I’ve seen in a while
HAYLEY ATWELL AS THE MUM HOWEVER BRIEFLY BEING HER USUAL FLAWLESS SELF OFFERING THE MAIN THEME OF THE MOVIE IN A BEAUTIFUL HEARTBREAKING LITTLE SPEECH
the romance is done so well, developed more so that it’s not love at first sight but it’s still very fairytale-esque and just CUTE AS HELL LIKE THEY ARE BOTH ADORABLE CUTIES WHO ARE A BIT AWKWARD BUT ALSO HELLA GORGEOUS
Cate Blanchett as the horrible stepmother with an actual moment that gives you a touch of sympathy before you go ‘nah you’re still a bitch through and through’, but a+ because “are you threatening me?” - “yes”
did I mention the costumes
is it inappropriate to mention the really obvious junk on the all the males with said costuming considering it is a children’s fairytale I feel like it is but I couldn’t help but continuously notice Richard Madden’s in particular oops I’m going to hell
but yeah the casting of the leads is fab because Lily James is just so genuine and the most lovable creature while Richard Madden is charming but also believable and almost dorky and with emotional depth with his father and stuff
the fairy godmother in Cinderella should always be a bit eccentric, as anyone familiar with the musical version might particularly agree, and Helena Bonham Carter delivers without being over the top about it, she’s quirky and stunning as per usual but with a hella outfit to top it off
the transformed animals keep a few characteristics and just look awesome
THE PRINCESSES AND BALL GOERS ARE RACIALLY DIVERSE AND GORGEOUS AND ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE THEY HAVE COME FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD
and that goes for general members of the kingdom too, POC can be found throughout which is a fucking relief - isn’t realistic portrayal of half-magical half-realistic worlds great?
EVERYTHING WAS JUST WONDERFUL AND BEAUTIFUL AND 10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND
I mean admittedly I couldn’t help but think how it would be even more adorable if Kit’s character had been a girl, just because it is the ultimate fairytale setting and would have been so adorable with Ella and some beautiful but dorky princess but hey Richard Madden did such a great job that I have no complaints it’s just that a raging bisexual such as myself can’t help but think about these things
