weird movie in a great great way


Tired summary of Dance with Devils - Fortuna movie before I crash:

1) Lindo is bae

2) Marius manages to be both the narrator and the Greek chorus

3) Opening song was great. Jek’s was decent, if a bit weird because of the V for Vampire. Lindo’s was great….. except for the set up was way too ridiculous. (Seriously, dancing cats?)

4) Did Rejet mug an animation student and bribe them to re-edit the series down into a movie with a handful of transition scenes?? Because that’s what I got

5) They were giving away bonus thank you cards at the showing. I had the INCREDIBLY BAD LUCK of getting two Rems and then the INCREDIBLY GOOD LUCK of managing to trade one with a nearby fangirl for Lindo

6) The “special bonus ending” was literally just a 30 sec monologue after the end

7) One of the showings wAS A SING-A-LONG

9) This in and of itself made the entire experience worth it. ‘Cause there’s nothing quite like a room of giggling fangirls singing along to Dance with Devils songs, shrieking as characters made their intro, waving parade lights, and shouting “onii-chan” as Lindo got his imouto on. 10/10 would do again


Mysterious Skin (2004) - Gregg Araki 

5 bullet on this film:

  • This is one of those great movies that you kind of want to unsee, because it’s really disturbing. The theme, that is child abuse, is very real and present in the film, and I think this is great to warn people about pedophilia. I think the director captured in a great way how abuse changes people and how it ruins their lives. This movie makes you very uncomfortable, but it’s supposed to.
  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt should have won an Oscar for this, honestly. I don’t even have words to describe how awesome he was. Brady Corbet was very good as well. They had to do those super weird scenes, and it must have been very difficult.
  • I love how it has a little bit of comedy, even though it’s the darkest shit I have ever seen. 
  • The scenes are so beautiful an delicate an uuugh, the colors that match the mood of the film, I just love this so much.
  • Let’s appreciate the director for doing a movie about something people refuse to talk about. I mean, the film is based on a book, but it mustn’t be easy to make a movie about child abuse, you know?

How awkward it would be to watch it with your parents: A LOT. REALLY. JUST DON’T.

Ok but can we talk about the way Penny marches over to Eddie in the refrigerator scene and how he pretends to eat Ed's hand because he thinks it's a funny joke can we please talk about this scene because it's g r e a t

That was a good scene too!
And when Penny rests their hand on Eddie’s face in a weird “bitch-talk-to-my-hand”-ish way. A really great scene indeed!

Just some thoughts on The Shape of Water


Yes she 100% fucks the fish man, yes there is quite a bit of sex (Lots of masturbation too) AND IT DOES PLAY A PART IN WHAT DEL TORO WAS TRYING TO MAKE A MOVIE ABOUT, BUT THAT IS NOT AT ALL WHAT THE WHOLE MOVIE IS OR IS ABOUT!!! It’s an adult fairy tale that was strangely familiar and yet incredibly original.

Neither of the main characters can speak and they honestly didn’t need to? The way Del Toro wrote everything is great! The humanity both of them have is weirdly irresistible.

Also the fish-man is like… the handsomest fish-man??? He’s a beautiful character that I love to death now. I get why this girl was all on board. He’s also expressive and was soulful and human and absolutely stunning, the team who worked on that makeup should be so proud. (Also props to Doug Jones for making this monster so expressive and human)


The way Guillermo Del Toro made the characters fall in love was… natural and pure, it wasn’t creepy??? If there were ever a couple I would use the word “lovers” to describe it’s 100% these two. It was a love beyond words.

The music was great, the atmosphere and just all around artistry was incredible as with every movie Guillermo Del Toro touches. It was cinematic magic, an ode to classical cinema and gothic romance, and an amazing fantasy romance. (Magical realism)

(Also if you watch this movie and don’t expect some weird shit then I mean you have obviously never seen anything else by Guillermo Del Toro a.k.a. King of Strange-yet-beautiful-and-poetic cinema.)

Top 5 Dan Stevens quotes

Some of my favorites: 

On his mum and dad:

“…The parents that raised me weren’t actors, but they loved going to the theatre and they watched television and movies, so  I was raised on a cultural diet of books, of literature, and also of performance, of watching great movies and plays.”


“My daughter is just getting into chapter books…Following a narrative in serial format is great, and also you mete out chapters. It’s a three-chapter day if she’s been really good, but it’s only one chapter if things have not gone too well that day.”


“I’ll read parts of seven books and shove them all back in the shelf and have weird dreams.”


“Not that I was miserable at Tonbridge, but in some ways I did feel out of my element there. For starters, unlike most of the other boys, I was a scholarship pupil - the son of two teachers rather than wealthy parents.”

Cheeky devil:

“Each summer (from age 15) I’d spend a month in university accommodation with other kids up to age of 21. You can fill in the blanks….yes girls are very important to me.”


Bonus into the mind of Dan Stevens –said in 2011 (don’t ever say he didn’t warn us …😎 )

“There's’s still some rebelling in me to be done. Maybe I’ll now rebel against my own career. For my next part I should choose something completely out of character to what everyone expects. I don’t know what – but you should always expect the unexpected.”

Furries, I owe you an apology

You’re alright!

Zootopia was absolutely marvelous. Great detective story through line, great economy of story, nothing wasted. The world of animals in clothes was well thought through and creative, like the waterways hippos use to swim to work in business suits, and the ethnic neighborhoods for rats and mice where everything is doll sized.

Between this movie, and that that time fursuit guys cheered up Syrian refugee children when a furry convention was placed in the same hotel as refugee kids, I’ve realized something:

We are all weird pervs in some way or another, every one of us on this earth, so what defines us is…what can we give back to the world? What’s your contribution? In art, in compassion. Every superhero movie is about a bunch of circus freaks who team up to save mankind. Now there’s some truth.

anonymous asked:

Though I am a horror fan, I am curious of your answer: where would you advise a person trying to get into horror to start? I say Halloween but that may too thoroughly represent horror as the slasher cycle and nothing else, though I'm not sure it's possible to find a totally representative work

There’s definitely no totally representative work. Horror’s far too broad and wide a genre for that. And that’s one of the things to focus on when trying to get someone into it. People tend to think of horror as only one thing, and it’s always something different. More often than not, even more than one sub-genre, the people I talk to will always have one movie that’s representative of the whole genre for them. 

So I’ll ask people what they think of horror and when they usually say they hate it, it’s some variation of “Oh, it’s all movies like Saw” or “movies like Insidious” or “movies like Friday the 13th.” It’s amazing how many don’t even think of the fact that there even are sub-genres. 

If you’ve got a friend you’re trying to get into the genre, it’s always best to start with the things they’re into and then find the horror equivalent of that. If they love sci-fi, turn them toward The Thing, The Fly and Event Horizon. If they love fantasy, try something like Lord of Illusions, Nightbreed or Pan’s Labyrinth. 

Horror comedy is, more often than not, a terrific gateway. That’s what usually works best for me. Things like Shaun of the Dead, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, Idle Hands and even Night of the Creeps work great for people who are new to it, because they’re engrossing, fun movies that want you to have a good time. 

It can be difficult to start people out on the classics. Unless they’re already a huge film buff, most people tend to be alienated by the likes of Halloween, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Psycho and especially The Exorcist. It’s a needle in a haystack to find someone who likes The Exorcist if they see it for the first time in 2017. 

After they’ve gotten a feel for horror and have found a few favorites, that’s a great point to start leading them backward toward some of those foundation movies. 

It can be a weird thing to show someone Scream and then start showing them some of the ‘80s slashers that it’s commenting on, but it can actually be great to show someone something that introduces that style and structure in a (more) contemporary way so that they’re used to it when they go back and see the original thing. 

kaijuguy19  asked:

Do you think it's a bit unfair that people are comparing Kong Skull Island to Peter Jackson's King Kong movie as a way to point out how Jackson's Kong is an overall better movie or vice versa since both movies are obviously going for two different directions with each other like how Legendary's Godzilla 2014 movie is on a different direction then what Shin Godzilla took?

I’ve been getting the opposite - most folks I’ve spoken to find Skull Island to be the superior film, and their reasoning is that PJ’s Kong is either too long, takes itself too seriously, etc.
I think that both films are flawed, but Jackson’s is considerably more flawed, but largely because it takes more risks, and therefore, has further to fall when something doesn’t work. And in a way, that’s quite admirable.
Comparing Kong movies has always been tricky because each Kong film is so wildly different in tone and execution from the others. 

The original is a fun adventure film and a milestone of cinema, but also suffers from underwritten characters and ages somewhat poorly (mostly in gender and racial representation), so it requires a lot of historical context to appreciate fully.

Son of Kong is considerably poorer than its predecessor, but makes up for it a bit by being more lighthearted and by giving Denham a surprisingly complex character arc.

King Kong vs Godzilla, in its original form, is an outright comedy. Some have tried arguing this with me by claiming its comedic elements are purely a result of its age and campiness, and in doing so, are indirectly stating that Japanese filmmakers from the 1960s were somehow incapable or incompetent at making intentional comedy (these people are also scientifically categorized as pricks or horseshit melon-fuckers). True, the film slows down a bit when it’s trying to be perilous or anything other than self-referential and silly.

King Kong Escapes is, quite literally, a live-action cartoon, and contains elements of James Bond, Godzilla movies, and Saturday Morning Kids Show logic. If one can embrace these elements and work past that fucking hideous Kong suit (that grows on you over time), then it’s damn entertaining.

King Kong ‘76 is…not a great film. Like PJ’s, it was ambitious, but in the wrong ways. No dinosaurs, no real fantasy, and not much in the way of fun, the main reason to see it is for the production value and that incredibly awkward Jessica Lange scene.

King Kong Lives is……………………………………………well, it sure is a film. Like other offshoot Kongs before it, seeing it for the sheer spectacle may be reason enough. Otherwise it’s kind dopey and the acting is….weird. Maybe would make a great future MST3K.

PJ’s King Kong is, again, overly ambitious and, while overall a decent film, is still too goddamn long and indulgent in ways that don’t really pay off or are interesting to watch. There’s a good movie in there, with lots of emotion and pathos, not to mention great effects and wonderfully realized production design. But its reputation for being a little *too* loving of the source material, and itself, precedes it to the point where a critical re-evaluation should be in order. It’s a film that only fails because it had too much of itself to give.

Skull Island is a raucous, indulgent (in a good way), explosively fun monster movie that knows what it is, what it’s audience wants, and delivers on both fronts. I’m sure as time goes on I’ll have some more unkind words for it, like a few superfluous characters and some kinda cringe-worthy ADR/voiceover to water down the onscreen action a bit too much, but for the moment, it’s the overall best Kong movie since the original, being nearly edged out by KKvsG for its comedic value and PJ’s Kong for its ambition and quality filmmaking.

zur-en-arrhbatman  asked:

Since you're not the biggest fan of the Batfamily, I'm wondering what your thoughts on their latest ideas for the DCEU (dumping the whole league in favor of Batfamily) titles. Especially in the wake of WW's success I'm betting they can finally expand to other characters - which ones would you like to see a movie for? Legion of Superheroes? Teen Titans? (sorry for the long ask)

What are you talking about?  The movies aren’t dumping Justice League movies for Batfamily movies.  Like the next movies are Justice League, Aquaman, Shazam, Cyborg, and Green Lantern Corps.  The two Batfam movies (Batgirl and Nightwing) just have directors.  No release dates nor have they been casted.  I’m not mad or anything, if you’re right please send me a link to the news.  I mean they’re in the middle of filming Aquaman right now so I’m sure one of us has suffered a miscommunication.

I would love a Legion of Superheroes movie.  The just random DC things I want a movie made out of are as follows:  Lobo (it’d be like a grindhouse film)  Adam Strange (it’s essentially John Carter of Mars that disney dropped the ball on this way hollywood gets another chance without a reboot)  Animal Man (this would be a great opportunity for a serious superhero movie that focuses on Buddy Baker’s family but still gets to be weird and scifi)  Red Hood and the Outlaws (fucken fite me, I usually hate Lobdell but with the whole “dark trinity” thing its been great.  Just imagine Jason Todd alongside ANNE WOLFE as Artemis and Henry Cavill playing Bizarro it’d be great)  Shade the Changing Man (While I love Shade the Changing Girl one thing bad thing about it is that it relies on you being familiar on Loma Shade’s predecessor Rac Shade.  So a movie focusing on the first Changing Man would be cool.  Dude it’d be trippy as balls)  Mister Miracle and Big Barda (there would be all these death traps straight out of a horror film but he’d escape before the villain can get done monologueing) 

anonymous asked:

Tomino is basically Gundam's George Lucas

Eh, I dunno if that’s entirely fair. The reason Lucas sucks so hard has less to do with him making bad movies and more to do with his attitude, especially recently when he commented that Star Wars has been taken over by “white slavers”, bruh, you were the one who signed the contract and got paid a shit ton of money for it, you can’t complain, let alone use that kind of weird racial allegory that has nothing to do with anything.

Besides, Lucas made three good star wars movies and then three bad ones. Tomino made three great Gundam series, (0079, Zeta, Turn A) one outright bad one (G-Reco) one that was half and half (ZZ) and two that aren’t seen as outright great and have their detractors but also have their fair share of fans (Victory, F91.) On balance it’s more positive than negative. It’s also important to remember that he’s been an important contributor to the genre as a whole besides Gundam in a lot of ways (Reideen, Daitarn, Zambot, King Gainer, Ideon) and that the original Gundam is probably the single most influential mecha franchise after Mazinger Z and Tetsujin 28. Even if I think he’s overrated as a writer and director sometimes he still deserves a ton of respect.

When the bite marks get noticed, Chris nearly has a heart attack.

Ashley is the first one to do so, staring curiously at the two little puncture holes on his neck that haven’t healed up yet. She can’t quite make out what they are and before she can ask Chris is already covering them with a hand, laughing nervously about “mosquito bites”. 

The next one to see them is Sam, but Josh trusts her and so she already knows. She’s worried, but Chris brushes her off–if she could see how much healthier Josh is getting, how he’s now able to endure the sunlight for a little over an hour, she wouldn’t complain as much as she does.

Chris is certainly convinced that the risks outweigh the benefits–but he’s not being entirely honest, not to himself and not to others. 

As great as it is that his blood is slowly starting to enable Josh to return to a more regular life, the fact of the matter is that every time those fangs sink into his skin it feels like pure sex, and Chris is addicted.

Hearing vs Deaf

Now, I have nothing wrong with hanging out with both crowds. But they are two different set of groups.

Hanging out with Hearing:

-They talk, a lot and fast.

- They can talk over one another, amazingly well. 

- They can talk away from one another and still hear each other, even across the room.

- They can whisper without having much problem. Even talk quietly.

- Watch movies without CC, can watch movies whenever they want. 

- Lip reading Hearing person is hard … sometimes beards have… which is difficult to understand. Especially when one mumbles, barely moves their lips, bad lighting…

Hanging out with Deaf/HOH:

- We don’t interrupt, and when we do we wait until one finishes their conversation.

- Sign language!

- Very accommodative, if one has a specific method, we will adapt to that persons needs.

- Patient, we are REALLY patient.

- No boundaries… we still need to be careful with our signing space ;)

- Lots of laughter, deaf hanging out with deaf, don’t get tired easily. More relaxed.

- Lots of memories and good times.

- Will ALWAYS have CC on their tv/movies, we make sure it’s accessible for all.

- The way we get ones attention is not “weird” because for us, it’s usual. (stomping, waving hands, lights).

- Everyone gets included.

Now I’m not saying that Hearing are exclusive or whatever but it’s harder for someone who is Deaf/HoH to be apart of the group. It’s GREAT when a Hearing friend/family/group IS accommodative. I mean my friends are but it’s still very exhausting to try and lipread them. It’s also great to know when a Hearing person knows ASL - makes communication less stressful for us. Every time I come back from hanging out with my hearing friends I’m soo tired and drained. But when I am with my Deaf friends, I’m happy and energized every single time , after I come back.

I mean I’m glad I have both groups to hangout with. But when I’m with my Deaf Friends, I’m more relax. When I’m with my Hearing I have to be on ALERT! 24/7, straining my ears and eye to understand what one is saying. There are the pro and cons of everything right? 

Chocolate (2008)

I’m starting to feel better, so i’ll go back to my usual posts and keep holding on. Thanks for your support, by the way, it means a lot to me.

So, i’ve recently watched the movie Chocolate, a Thaï movie featuring an autistic girl, Zen, whose major special interest is martial arts, that will use her abilities to help her mother to get enough money for her treatment against cancer. 

And i can’t determine if this movie is awesome or just… weird. Zen is really cool. It’s rare to see an autistic girl as a major character and it’s even rarer that this character is portrayed in a badass way. But Zen is. Watching tons and tons of Bruce Lee movies and kickboxing practices, she imitates what she’s seeing and, years later, she’s a great fighter, helped by her acute auditory sense.

This same sense is also a cause of great stress for her, since she can’t handle certain sounds and has to rely on her best friend to get rid of these sounds (an ordinary boy, who really likes Zen, and has with her a cute friendship). But during the film, she confronts her fear, to be able to help her mother, that she loves dearly.

Autism is portrayed quite accurately and i was surprised. Zen stims, is non-verbal (she can say few words here and there, but not much), she’s alive, she’s joyful, she’s loving, she’s sad, she’s angry… And the fact that she’s autistic doesn’t mean that she has no perception of the rest of the world or that she’s “in her own little world” during the movie.

In fact, she’s really perceptive of what’s going on around her and she takes action on her own, for the sake of her family and her friend.

Her relationship with her mother is quite touching too. At first, her mother is tormented and she’s certain that “Zen can be cured”, but year after year, she accepts her daughter like she is, loves her dearly and she does everything to make sure that Zen is happy. In return, Zen is doing her best to make sure that her mother can be cured from her cancer and it’s just beautiful.

Zen is awesome, cute and would have been a great heroine of mine when i was younger, i think.

And after all this good stuff, there’s a fight scene with…  a Tourette teenager (is it the right way to say it ? I assume it’s like “autistic girl”, but i could be wrong, so don’t hesitate to correct me on this). And it’s just weird. I wasn’t feeling good while watching it, i didn’t know what to think of it. I still don’t know, in fact.

Also, almost every “bad guy” is a transmisogynyst depiction of trans women, so it can be triggering for some people, i think (it’s sad because i love to see diversity in movies and tv shows, but here… I’m not sure that it’s a good representation).

So, yeah… Probably not the best movie i have seen, but still a surprisingly good one, with its flaws.

Edit : Edited because i used an ableist word without knowing it. Thank you for your remark @purpleweredragon , my English is far from perfect and i don’t want to offend anyone or to say something mean.

Sebastian Stan On ‘The Martian’ And How He Wasn’t Sure He’d Be A Part Of ‘Captain America: Civil War’

BY MIKE RYAN • for    Source (X)

In The Martian (which we reviewed here) Sebastian Stan plays Chris Beck, an astronaut who’s part of the team that mistakenly leaves fellow astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) behind on Mars after thinking Watney has died. The Martian is a delightfully light movie, especially considering it’s about a guy stranded on a desolate world with very little hope. But as Stan explains, the film has gone through a few changes.
