i was watching the first avenger and wondering how Bucky knew Steve was getting his ass kicked in the back of some random alley behind a movie theatre

like does he just check alleyways whenever he’s walking down a street to see if Steve’s started another fight he can’t finish

the answer is probably yes
Hollywood, It’s Time to Retire the ‘Loveable Misogynist’ Movie Hero
Thanks Max Rockatansky for showing us there can be another way.

I love Mad Max.  The character, that is, and yes I mean the version as portrayed by too-pure-for-this-world precious cinnamon roll Tom Hardy.  This version of Max Rockatansky was a game- changer, a turning point, and it’s not so much because of what he does do in the film (tortured gun-toting loners like Max are common) but what he doesn’t do. And the most important thing Max doesn’t do in Mad Max: Fury Road is be a dick to women.

This is remarkable because Max spends almost his entire movie surrounded by women.  While there is some debate as to who is the protagonist of the piece, Max is the main character as the audience views the story through his lens, the Nick Carraway to Furiosa’s Jay Gatsby.  So in a movie with a male lead, it’s an extreme rarity to see a supporting cast that’s even half female, let alone mostly female.  And the most revolutionary element in Fury Road isn’t necessarily the quantity of female characters (though that is certainly extremely noteworthy, considering the relative paucity in most other movies that aren’t romantic comedies), but that gender doesn’t inform character interaction.  Max doesn’t alter his language or actions when he’s interacting with any of the women.  He doesn’t need to remark on girls doing non-girl things like shooting or punching, he doesn’t need to second guess anyone’s abilities and his ego isn’t bruised when Furiosa is his better at certain skillsets.  Here’s a male lead who isn’t driven by insecurity about his masculinity.

Why is that so rare?

The release of Jurassic World several weeks later, and the subsequent eye-rolling at the dull, played-out Beavis and Butt-head-level way that Chris Pratt’s character treated his female co-lead was placed into even more stark contrast by how people embraced Hardy’s Max.  Loveable wink-wink, nudge-nudge misogyny in your male lead isn’t a problem unto itself.  The problem is sheer volume.  It seems like with tentpoles and franchise properties that aren’t aimed at children, the lovable misogynist is a handy stock character if you want your protagonist to be flawed but relatable.  After all, if the Hollywood bro-club presumes the audience doesn’t respect women, why the hell should your protagonist?

These things seem to come and go in waves, but it’s nothing new.

“Lovable misogyny rarely furthers a narrative or builds interesting characters; it’s just there because it’s normalized.  And, again, this is not an issue of volume, it’s an issue of the pervasiveness for that being the go-to Thing when you want to give your male lead a character arc.  It usually doesn’t add anything (I’m looking at you, Age of Ultron “prima nocta” joke that everyone hated), it’s just set dressing that’s placed there for no reason other than the assumption that the drooling caveman audience will get confused at its absence.  It’s 2015, it’s not weird for women to have jobs and fix cars and punch faces anymore, move on!“


This phenomenally awesome Godzilla cosplay was created by lifelong Godzilla fan Sean Sumagaysay from Puerto Rico. Yes, there is a person inside this amazing homemade suit and, if you watch this costume test video (shot on a rooftop so it looks like he’s as tall as the nearby buildings), you’ll find that it moves just like the big guy does in the movies. Sean named his cosplay project “Project Nautilus” after the working title of the new Godzilla film which came out just last month. He debuted his lumbering creation at the 2014 Puerto Rico ComicCon.

Friendly reminder

In the spanish version of wikipedia, when you look for the characters of fairy tail, you find facts about natsu and lucy, read below:

According to the own Hiro Mashima, in an interview during the premiere of the movie Fairy Tail: Hoo no Miko, Natsu sees Lucy as more than a friend, but he thinks she does not feel the same for him.

She is the closest person to Natsu, that’s how the girls from guild discussed it. Lately, both the manga and the anime, Lucy has shown some interest in him.


Yes natsu, she feels the same for you.

you lil fool

Plus, if you have some doubt about this, GO CHECK OUT :

voltron+food headcanons!!! bc why not!!!!!:::

  • hunk is seen as the most ‘food’ centred character bc yes he does love food but a huge factor for him is the experience of food!! he likes the act of setting up communal meals and bonding over making food and getting snacks to watch movies with or going to lunch with someone he just really loves how it brings people together nd it always has positive connotations for him tbh !!
  • lance fairly enjoys food and the food/socializing combo that hunk does except lance is. just. So Distracted by people he’ll walk around talking to someone with a sandwich in his hand for like 40 minutes and the other person will be side-eyein like u gonna….eat that or……and at meals shiro CONSTANTLY has to be like ‘lance sit back down’ and lance will be like ‘oh yeah, yeah, cool’ and then TEN MINS LATER shiro will be like ‘lance finish your food’ bc hes FORGOT AGAIN and h o n e s t l y
  • pidge is still in that Super Picky phase that younger kids kinda go through. she’ll be grateful for food but she’ll play with it for 20 mins rather than say anything and shiro will be like ‘pidge whats up?’ and pidge’ll be like ‘oh! nothin, nothin….’ and shiro will be like ‘……….’ and pidge is like ‘just uh…whats this. Green Stuff. on the side’ and shiros like ‘its vegetables and its good for you’ and pidge is like wrinkling her nose and shiro is like :))) you literally ate them yesterday why are ppl :))) testing :))) him :)))
  • the team is collectively sure keith has like. zero taste buds. did the sand wither them away. is it an adaptive mutation. no one knows?? like he will literally eat Anything you place in front of him ANYTHING and eat it with a straight face like ‘yo thanks for the food’ and everyones staring at him like……surely not….surely he jests……the team thinks this is in equal parts hilarious and disturbing so they give him increasingly questionably edible stuff until one day they give him something like lol guys wanna watch keith eat this weird rock flower i found and he does but it makes him INCREDIBLY sick for like a week and shiro has to intervene like ‘keith is the equivalent of a dog that will eat what u give it bc it doesnt know any better. is it entertaining to watch the dog eat chocolate toffees bc it cant chew them? yes. yes it is. but we are Responsible pet owners.’
  • the team learns the hard way shiro is fiercely protective of his food. he doesnt mind sharing at all as long as you ask or he offers. if u steal chips from his plate tho. boi………wyd………shiro HATES himself for doin this he just really really cant help it ?? in a way that makes him kind of panicky like he just needs space when he eats and hes fine its fine okay!!

How they propose
  • 707: He ends you on a cute little hunt around the house. A piece of paper with clues to find the next page. Once you get to the end, you see Seven sitting on your bed with a heart shaped card with a quickly drawn ring on it. All he does is smile and you immediately say yes.
  • Jumin: Remember how much he loves Elizabeth 3rd? He decided to place the ring around a bow and place it on Elly. Jumin tells you to grab Elly since she 'has a vet appointment'. Once she is picked up, you notice the little bow on her and question Jumin about it. He states how much he loves you and asks if you would like to be his one and only.
  • Zen: He used clips from his movies and got Seven to help him piece them all together to create a small message to you. It was a little hard at first, but he found a way to show it to you. He told you about an upcoming film he was starring in and wanted your opinion on some of the clips he was allowed to show. When you finshed watching the clips, you started to cry as you said yes.
  • Jaehee: She asked Mr. Han to take the day off work so she could prepare some things. She decided to do something sweet and basic. So she recreated your first date together. The only difference was, instead of being served a desert you were given a ring. You of course, said yes.
  • Yoosung: Yoosung had the cutest way of proposing to you. With the help of Jumin and Seven, he was able to collect together a bunch of photos and memories the two of you had together. He put them all into a photo album and decided to give it to you on your birthday. He was so nervous when he handed it to you, he was practically shaking!! Once you had reached the end of the photo album, there was a picture slot that had a note in it. The note said 'I want to make more memories with you. As my wife. Will you do me that honour?' Tears were streaming down both of your faces after that

Don't trust anyone who tries to argue that Tony Stark is the villain in Civil War

1) If you hate him for trying to kill Bucky, how would you feel if you were face to face with the person who killed your parents and one of your closest friends kept that hidden from you. Brainwashed or not, I’d be pissed too. Regardless of your opinion of Steve, he was in the wrong. Tony deserved to know.

2) The villain is ZEMO. He’s the one who actively goes after the Avengers. Everything Tony does in the movie is actually just damage control because of Zemo and Steve’s actions.

3) Also regardless of your opinion on superhero oversight, Tony gave valid reasons in favor of registration. Yes, the Avengers saved the world several times. But I’d be afraid too if there was a group like this acting without supervision. Tony’s side might be controversial but it’s not necessarily unfounded.

4) Spiderman is a fucking superhero who’s taken down bigger foes, it’s not like Tony’s bringing some random kid with a gun into the fight. Besides, the plan wasn’t to kill Steve and Bucky, it was just to bring them in. Tony was NOT trying to push for a fight, it just spiraled into one because Steve is a hardheaded jackass. Also, hypocrite much? It’s okay for Deadpool to bring Negasonic Teenage Warhead into a fight but it’s wrong for Tony to bring Peter in? I see you Tumblr.

5) Lastly, if you are going to villainize Tony, you also have to admit Steve was being a jackass as well. Bucky was a victim, yes, but was he really worth all of that chaos? Getting Rhodey paralyzed, blowing up the airport, splitting the team apart. Say what you will about Tony but the man was trying DESPERATELY to keep the team together while Steve didn’t mind if the group splintered. He even says at the end that the Avengers didn’t matter as much to him as they did to Tony. So please, don’t act like Steve was this shining paragon of truth in this movie.

For the record, Steve is my favorite Avenger but he didn’t come out clean in this movie. Also, even though Tony is my least favorite Avenger, he felt more like the hero of the movie than Steve did to be honest.

Zootopia Love #60

“What is your problem?  Does seeing me fail somehow make you feel better about your own sad, miserable life?”

 "It does, 100%.“

Love this little exchange.  While Nick responds in his typical glib fashion, the truth is slipping out here. It’s the culmination of the evidence from his very specific ‘let me dash your dreams’ speech earlier pointing out that yes, indeed, Nick is trying to ruin Judy’s success.  It’s him trying to not remind himself that he has, indeed, given up.  That little Junior Ranger, who wears a shirt that reminds him of home, who still carries around his Junior Ranger scarf, that fox is still there, but it’s hiding from the world behind a slick and sarcastic shell. To keep him safe from that ever happening again.  The mechanism is trying to be right by proving Judy wrong and making her fail.  

It’s that shell that responds to Judy’s question.

It’s that shell, however, that starts getting disrupted on the platform in the Rainforest District.

It’s the real Nick who shows up under the bridge.
