will never be over this movie

Imagine going on your first date with Tom. It was the kind of date you see in romantic comedies - you just clicked from the moment he picked you up. You were nervous in the beginning, but being with him relaxed you almost immediately. You never ran out of things to talk about over dinner, and ended up holding hands all through the movie. At the end of the night, he walks you to your door, giving you a gentle goodnight kiss before leaving.

Captain Underpants is like Dreamworks’ own Lego Movie. It values creativity and fun over anything else. Like, almost every scene involves a really clever gag that’s never been done before.

Rant

Some anonymous wrote on tumblr “I think this time Johnny should put his pride and personal beliefs aside and basically shut his mouth. For his family and for his own good.”

My answer is: NO!

We have already way to many celebrities out there who only utter the same PR- and lawyer-approved text modules over and over again. Scared to death if one wrong word could harm the promotion for a movie, album, book or maybe their career. Freedom of speech killed by fear. If more of them would open up from time to time of course we’d have more diversity of opinion in the media. What’s wrong with that? Nothing. But it might cause more people to think their own thoughts and not following blindly somebody who lies as he breathes.

Johnny isn’t much of a public speaker. He never was and most likely never will be. Sometimes his mind is much faster than his mouth, making it impossible for him to finish a sentence. This time not only his mind but also his gut found a way to his tongue.  You may say it was a bad joke. OK. In terms of humor or what’s funny and what not people are different, especially when it comes to politics. But I noticed that Trump-voters are especially thin-skinned. They are OK with somebody of their own ilk threatening Clinton in all seriousness. They are OK with that carrot’s behavior towards immigrants, women and disabled people. Textbook hypocrisy. As soon as somebody turns the tables they go mental.  

Johnny never said and never intended to say : “Ok, let’s go, grab a gun and kill the president.” Keep in mind where he said that. At a festival that’s sometimes called the"English Woodstock". What does that most likely say about the audience? Not exactly a place for Trump fans. The audience did understand what he meant.  - What he meant and what I strongly agree with is “Remove that lying orange asshole from office before he can do any more damage!”. And I wish more celebrities would stand up and say exactly that.

To silence voices like his - however lame this joke was - will leave us alone with small-minded posts on twitter. Is that really what you want?

6 Random Answers to Bookish Q's Asked by Customers

1:  A novelization of a film is a book based on a film. 

2: When a film is based on a book, the book doesn’t change to fit the film. 

3: The main difference between an original cover and a film cover is that [sometimes] the film cover edition has movie stills in the center and/or might also include a preface, or a book club section in the back. The movie cover version can also be cheaper or more expensive, depending on the aforementioned movie stills. Oh, and sometimes one cover is usually uglier than the other. 

4: From my experience (if you have a more accurate time frame, please let me know!), books that come out in hardcover usually come out in paperback 6 months to a year after the initial release–Except for: A) the super popular books that take over a year, or potentially YEARS to come out as paperbacks  B) The books that just never get printed as paperbacks C) The book that just came out last month that you’re holding in your hand. 

5: Unfortunately, we don’t set the book prices printed on the book themselves. Sorry it’s expensive! 

6: That book isn’t 40% off because “wow it’s already discounted? It must have been bad, huh?” It’s 40% off because it’s a bestseller, meaning that we are trying to give you the best deal possible!

you know what would be good? a movie about the publication of kafka’s work/ legacy that starts immediately after kafka dies and just follows the incredibly messy path it takes from what happened to people like max or felice to people reinterpreting kafka over and over again in later decades. 

of course, kafka never shows up in person, not even in flashbacks, he’s not a character and yet he’s the main character

well so there’s a lot going on about that x-men director being interested in doing a voltron live action movie, i really do have mixed feelings about the idea.

we are all traumatized by the atla live action which cast was totally whitewashed (i’ll never be over how much they ruined sokka and katara), and the east asian character was played by a south asian actor (i feel sorry for my baby dev patel for being part of it, and well he also is). honestly it had potential to be good but nope, didn’t happen.

about voltron i like and dislike the idea, i dislike more than i like but i do not fully hate it or love it, you know? i actually prefer that no movie happens, i’m really worried if it ends to be something like atla or another comics/cartoons/animes that have been through live action adaptations and were totally ruined. live action adaptation are rarely as good as the animations.

but at the same time i’m just like well who knows it’s a nice idea? what if the movie is a visual masterpiece with a nice plot and a cast with accurate ethnicies (since we have so many characters that are poc)? it would be really weird to see my kids coming to life and having another voices since i’m really used to the va voices, and all the action and aliens and stuff, but who knows right?

if the director dude really wants to effort in a voltron movie, i hope it happens in some year far away since the show will consist of so many seasons, and it needs to have a nice plot and a really good cast, and if it doesn’t, cancel asap and it will be one more dreamworks animtation adaption we will pretend that never happend. so let’s wait to see what happens.

One thing I will never understand

How is it okay to trash on someone else’s opinion just because you don’t agree with it?
Today, I had a discussion with someone about Hollywood movies and TV shows at my tennis class- precisely about the Fast and Furious series. Personally, I don’t particularly have a fondness for them- I don’t see the appeal of cars going over a lot of speed limits and inevitable being blown up, but if you do like the series, then great for you! You’ve found some on-screen entertainment that you happen to enjoy!

But this guy, when he asked me about my opinion and I told him so, he called me pretentious. He said, and I quote- “Lol, you weirdo- you have no taste, and you’ll watch crap like Black Mirror and Mr. Robot- you think you’re probably more intellectual or smart or whatever than the rest of us are.” And then he explained why the shows I like are shit, even though I didn’t ask for his opinion.

Well, I’m never going to bother talking to this dude again.

(Dear mom and dad, please don’t kill me over this permanent choice. I want you to hear me out.)

Today, I am coming out with something that only few of you know. I am ready to have a conversation about my mental illness.

Last year, I was diagnosed with depression. And in all honesty, I believe it was a problem for quite a while before that, but I think it just got worse to the point of hardly functioning.

So today, I got this tattoo. I feel that my leg was the best place for the meaning behind it. When everyone else sees it, they see “I’m fine,” but from my viewpoint, it reads “save me.” To me, it means that others see this person that seems okay, but, in reality, is not okay at all. It reminds me that people who may appear happy, may be at battle with themselves.

To me, depression is the days that I feel sad for no reason.
Depression is the mornings that I don’t feel capable of getting out of bed.
Depression is the sleeping too much, or sleeping too little.
Depression is the homework that I never completed, simply because I didn’t feel like I was capable.
Depression is the break downs I have over absolutely nothing.
Depression is the eating too much, or eating too little.
Depression is the nights I begin to cry because I feel so overwhelmed, even though everything is going right.
Depression is the 50 pounds I carry in my chest at all times.
Depression is the need to constantly be distracted (being on social media, playing video games, watching movies or shows, or working all the time) because I can’t trust myself with my thoughts for longer than 3 minutes.
Depression is the friendships that have suffered because of my inability to function.
Depression is the hurtful thoughts and actions I have towards myself.
Depression is the tears I have because I don’t know why I feel so worthless, when I know I should feel happy.

This is one of the most difficult things to open up about because it’s extremely hard for me to feel vulnerable…but this needs to be talked about. Mental illness is serious, but so shamed in our society. We care so much for our physical health, but hardly a thing about our mental state. And that is seriously messed up. Mental illness is not a choice and will likely hit everyone at some point in their life. If it’s such a huge issue, why aren’t we having this conversation about it?

That’s why I got this tattoo; they are great conversation starters. This forces me to talk about my own struggle, and why the awareness of it is important. You’d be surprised by how many people YOU know that struggle with depression, anxiety, or other mental illness. I may only be one person, but one can save another…and that’s all I could really ask for.

Maybe this is part of why I am so interested in psychology. I want to help people who feel the way I have—and still do—because it’s hell. And I don’t wish that upon anyone.

“I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.”
—Robin Williams

**Also, THANK YOU to the ones who have helped me in this battle. I would not be where I am without you.**

i saw wonder woman and i cried several times, mostly when i saw diana storming into battle. and then it was over and i went to the bathroom and i burst into tears because i am twenty one years old and that is the first time i’ve seen a superhero movie with a female lead. the first time ive sat in a cinema and watched a superhero movie with strong, capable, fierce women, directed by a woman, not an object thrown about by men, not a subject of the male gaze. 

i cried because i felt so weird when i realised i’d never seen that before, and so proud that all women can go and watch it and be like!!!!!!!!! thats a woman hero!!!!!!!!!!!!!! who fights evil and pursues justice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! who has her own demons and overcomes her internal conflicts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a lady hero!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes I feel like the only one who had a crush on John Bender from The Breakfast Club
