What did you think of the last MLB episode?

Funny story - I couldn’t wait for someone to sub it, so I watched it completely in French and I was pretty proud of myself for actually understanding like a third of it (thanks 4 years of high school French classes!). Then of course I re-watched it with subtitles because YO THAT ENDING WITH THAT NEW INFO THAT CAME OUT?!?!?! I’m pretty hyped for what’s to come. I have an idea of where it’s going but you never know.

Oh so yeah, I really enjoyed the episode haha.

What did you think of Coco?

Im gonna give two different replies to this; one as a mexican and another as designer and aspiring visual designer.

Conceptually, it’s gorgeous. They did such a good job combining the mexican culture, the magical aspect, and the narrative. Not gonna get too much into visual spoilers but my favorite visual aspect is the Land of the Death and how it’s made of steps and how those steps are actual historical times in Mexican history, and it’s so discreet. It’s gorgeous.

Throughout the movie there’s hints everywhere about where your mind should be at certain points of the story which makes the plot twist so juicy. It always keeps your eyes on the screen, focused what is going on and where the characters are taking you. Although I guessed the plot twist (I would have felt disappointed if I hadn’t since I want to work with stories and narratives), it’s a very, very good plot twist that almost no one saw coming.

The characters are lovable and even though some of them are dead, they are still so human and alive and they show vulnerability but they are also authentic.

As a mexican: that’s my family. I see my parents and my cousins and my grandparents and my story in the story. Though the story is based, set and focused mainly on little mexican towns, I know those parts too. I live in a big city and stay at the more ‘urban’ like parts but I’m not completely separated from that side, which is not the burros and sombreros and the ghost towns some people believe Mexico is. I look at the characters and I see places and people I know.

I’ve lost people I love and that I miss so so much and Coco gives this lovely take on what life is like after death. In Maya/Aztec mythology, they explain what it’s like when you die and the path the death follow and then there’s the Day of the Death traditions which are just like ‘they come back from the death on this day and we celebrate that’.

Pixar took that concept of what we celebrate and really took it to whole new level and made a ‘made up’ world out of it that feels extremely mexican, and though I’ve never seen that Land of the Death, I know it’s real and that’s how stuff has been all this time.

You could say that it made me want to run home and put up all the pictures of my dead relatives on the altar (part of me got really excited because my grandma told me she wants me to keep the old photographs of her side of the family so I got excited that Im going to be the one responsible to ‘remember’ them).

As someone, who was VERY worried about what Pixar was going to do with my heritage, I’m very very proud of them and their work. I highly recommend it.

dunkirk is the kind of film you sit on after you see it. at first you’re like, yeah that was a good film. it was a different kind of war movie. then you leave the theater and you start thinking about it, all your favorite moments, the ones that made you bite your nails off. you think about the message and what christopher nolan is really trying to get across with the way he directed it. and then you realize that it’s actually sort of spectacular. because you were in the film. you weren’t just hearing a bunch of dialogue, knowing what someone was going to do next. you were basically living it. between the music and the acting, you were feeling what they were feeling. long story short, if you were unsure of dunkirk at first: sit on it. i guarantee you’ll see the beauty in it.

Today I learned that if you actually let the timer in the Arrival DLC run out it shows the reapers arriving and destroying the galaxy. Such highlights include:

  • The Citadel being destroyed
  • Shepards helmet (head??) on a SPIKE
  • Destroyed Normandy
  • All your friends and crew lining up to be executed
  • Kellys FACE MELTING OFF

Am I the only one just finding this out because holy shit
