why do i feel like i've never seen these

anonymous asked:

I was wondering, do you truly believe La La Land deserves to win Best Picture over the other films? And why, if so? I just want to hear an opinion.

I truly believe that Moonlight should win Best Picture. La La Land was my personal favorite, because it did something that movies never, ever do for me; it made me feel good, it made me feel like I was watching something special, something that I would treasure for the rest of my life. But is it better than Moonlight? Is it more original, or important? Of course not. 

Moonlight did something that no one does; it focused, in gentle and tender care, on the quietness of repression, on the restless desire to say something when you can’t find the words. It didn’t just explore masculinity, it pieced it apart and laid it carefully in front of the audience, to not just be seen but interrogated, understood, felt. It was achingly honest, painfully intimate. It would be a grave mistake to not name it Best Picture at the Oscars. 

PSA: Just because you’ve suffered more hardships than a person does not give you to right to dismiss their problems and say “I’ve had worse.” and “You know, that was nothing compared to…..” Their experience does not make it any less painful to them than yours. Not only that, you will also prevent them from reaching out to people when they are dealing with severe problems and force them to deal with their difficulties without the support of others. No one’s emotions are ‘superior’ to others; all of our emotions have equal priority. And remember that crying never makes you weak.

Serious question. I think I missed something when watching Star Wars. Why is everybody shipping Finn and Poe? They are the cutest cinammon rolls but I never thought of them as a ship. I feel like fandom always has to slash a pair of buddies no matter what. It’s like 2 men sharing screen, being good people and not being douches to each other = slash. And I’m looking at you too, Captain America fandom. Or SPN. And the thing is, I almost always only see this happening with male pairings. Two girls can be best friends and people do not automatically ship them. I thing that speaks volumes about how we, as a fandom, and as a society, see male relationships and man showing affection for other men. Or maybe I’m reading too much into everything. IDK.

Are these too going to be a canon pairing? I’m all for that if that’s the case, but I think I haven’t watched the same movie as other people or I’ve missed the memo xD I think my homoerotic subtext dectector is broken.

do people actually hate armin or is it just something someone made up so they can feel special and make a big deal about how devout of an armin fan they are
