you did a great job in this scene

artd3co  asked:

your opinion on jorm as kevin powell

a true icon ✨

I literally have a folder on both my phone and my laptop of photos of Kevin because I adore him, and he makes fantastic reaction photos

I think Jorm did a great job, and I mean, he’s got those freaking wheelie shoes, and the striped shirts, and “Rod, are you okay?” he’s such a cute lil softie I adore it.

also, the scene where Rod walks in on him singing to his stuffed animals is one of the purest things ever.

basically, I love Kevin 

marielgum  asked:

A bit of a sad question but have you ever felt lonely in your life? Like nobody could understand you or like you were out of place?

When my roommates moved out and I was here doing youtube alone I felt that way. No one around here or even in Ireland in general really “get” youtube as a job or what I did so it felt very isolating.

I’ve since found friends who are all either in the scene or know a lot about it so it helped a great deal :)

[The legendary scene of The Game Changer] Z.TAO plays Fangjie

Actor Huang Zitao did such a great job in The Game Changer movie that when the movie came out, he was the all the highlights. Not only his acting skill was acknowledged, he also received lots of compliments such as: “In this movie, it’s no longer Huang Zitao, you only see Fangjie”“Huang Zitao’s acting is unexpectedly amazing and attractive”“Huang Zitao’s fighting scenes are so comfortable and good to watch”“Huang Zitao’s acting skill is beyond my expectation”“No any characters in the movie truly loves Fangjie but Fangjie receives all the love from the audience”, etc. Many many nonfans and passerby have become his fans after watching this movie~

Jensen was never this awkward, never lost for words when it came to flirting, never tripping over himself to think of the words to say. It was just… you did something to him, something that made him feel like a twelve-year-old trying to stumble his way to his first kiss again.

You’d known each other in high school - you’d turned him down when he tried to ask you to prom, yourself being a senior, sophomore Jensen didn’t stand a chance amongst the other senior boys asking for an opportunity to ask you out - but you hadn’t become friends until you started working together on a low-budget, independent movie, four years after he graduated.

You’d just finished shooting a scene when you walked over to where Jensen was stood, leaning against a dresser on set.

“That was, you were great,” he told you, before shaking his head and cursing himself. “Good, good acting, it was- you were… good job.”

Jesus Christ, he needed to pull himself together. Why did he let you affect him like this?

You laughed, “You’re funny.”

Thanks to your gif something strikes me.. when we saw Brianna's big smile, she looks so much like Jamie with his big smile in the training scene in France with Murtagh... in 2x02 i think.. anyway I am in the side of "Sophie has Sam's profile and did q great job in mimetism but blue contact ffs!!!" SO I am happy when I saw things like that...

You’re right, it’s a great comparison of the two.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: for fourteen years now, hayden christensen has gotten so much hate for playing anakin, when, realistically, he did such a good job. hayden not only acted anakin skywalker as the perfect angst-ridden, overeager, self-destructive-for-the-sake-of-trying-to-save-something-much-more-important person that anakin was, but he really Got the character. coupled with cheesy lines, a fucking greenscreen in EVERY SCENE HE HAD TO ACT IN, and direction that kept telling him to pull back when he could have been playing anakin at full capacity, i think that his portrayal of anakin was spot on. hayden spent so much of the movies shaking and vibrating and fucking TREMBLING with pent up anger and frustration and rage and passion and love, simmering constantly with the war inside of anakin to save padmé; save the one person in his life that he loved more than ANYTHING. even while pulling back as much as george lucas directed him to, you can clearly see the way that anakin was being torn apart from the very beginning of attack of the clones, while juxtaposing that by acting like a whiny angsty teenager, who wanted to be viewed as great as he thought he was on the road to becoming. you could clearly see his grapple with power coming out through not only foreshadowing (which attack of the clones did a stellar job with displaying), but in hayden's acting of anakin. even in lighter scenes with padmé, you can see some of that anger and passion seeping and slipping through. you could see glimpses and fragments of the person anakin was turning into in spite of everything he did to try and stop his worst nightmares from coming true. hayden showed the essence of who anakin was as a man, as the monster he turned into (in a horribly, disastrously misguided attempt to save the woman that was his whole world). hayden christensen played anakin skywalker the best he fucking could under the shitty circumstances he was given and i will defend him until i die and then beyond the grave

We need to talk about Arthur Weasley. Now, we all know that he is an amazing dad, but I want to talk about what an underappreciated bad-ass he really is.

Imagine the guts it took for him to walk into the ministry every day. As each year passes it becomes more and more dangerous for him to be there. At first he just has to deal with the smirks and the whispers (”blood traitor”, “muggle lover”), but as the years progress, it becomes worse.

By the time he brings Harry in at the beginning of OotP, things have gotten really dodgy. His housing and support of Harry only makes his position more precarious. Yet he never falters, never once considers backing down or abandoning Harry (even after he is attacked and almost dies)!

Even after Death Eaters attack his home, at his son’s wedding, he still continues to WALK HIS BAD SELF into the ministry!! (I know it irked Umbridge most of all) He didn’t walk in and kiss up to the new regime! He was defiant. He not only did his job, but he stood up to people who could have very easily killed him. He never once considered using his blood status to just blend in or appease those in charge. I love that Ron got to see him in action during that elevator scene in DH! It was such a great Arthur moment and made it so easy to see how he was an inspiration to his children. And don’t even get me started on how he comes to Hogwarts ready for battle (with his equally bad ass wife)! If you do not love Arthur Weasley, you are wrong! End.of.story.

There is just so much raw passion here like it genuinely effects my breathing. I think that was always the thing with these two, very strong willed people who appreciated a good argument and defending their opinions. Liz and the writers did such a good job fueling this fire, you know? Like character development leading up to this scene was like nothing I’ve ever seen.

I think that’s the problem I’m having with this season. We see submissive and vulnerable Jess and yeh, of course, it’s believable because zooey is a fucking great actress and can pull everything off. But in reality, they’re two completely different characters compared to who they were in season 2. I really can’t complain, particularly about these last few episodes, like I understand it’d be hard to come up with hundreds of episodes for the same characters. And obviously they’re trying to show some form of ‘growth’ or something. My point is, these two’s storyline this season could almost be a stand alone show. It’s completely different. Ily Liz but you’ve got some big shoes to fill if you want to create fire like you did in season 2, for Nick and Jess 2.0. (Disclaimer: I’m not doubting Liz’s abilities, I’m just saying, pressure is on).

Spend a good half an hour studying each of their faces in this scene, please… it’s worth it,

I just want to point out a small detail that broke my heart this past episode with Jughead and FP

The scene where Jughead stuffs FP’s flask into the sofa– that legit sent a spasm through me. My ex-boyfriend was/is a raging alcoholic and I could honestly feel the sheer panic Cole acted out in that scene. I remembered feeling that exact way with my ex, trying to pour vodka down the drain in small increments so he wouldn’t notice, or trying to hide the bottles still in our kitchen while he was already smashed to prevent further chaos in our apartment. 

Cole did a really great job in portraying that fear for someone you love–watching them become their greatest enemy and acting on pure instinct. Idk, just my own thoughts on the scene.

My thoughts on Power Rangers

First off, you should know that this is all coming from a huge Power Rangers fan. I loved this series as a kid, so I was always going to get at least a little enjoyment out of this movie for nostalgia reasons. Is my opinion biased? Hell yeah it is because I love Power Rangers. Now let’s dig in. Spoilers ahoy!

I gotta give it up to Dacre Montgomery for actually getting me to like him. He was the one going in that I just didn’t care about. Jason was always my least favorite out of the group from the original series. But Dacre did a great job of getting me to feel bad for him. Sure, the “you are the leader” stuff was a little much, but I loved his relationship with everyone on the team and how he actually cared about them. He could have come across as just a jerk, but he didn’t. Props to him.

Now for my favorite thing about the movie. Billy. Oh my god, someone turn RJ Cyler into a superstar right now. I had heard he was great in this movie, but I didn’t know how great he’d be. He was just a scene stealer in every scene. I loooved the scene when he first morphed. I loved how he was the heart of the team. Everyone cared about him, even when they didn’t like each other, and it was heartbreaking when he “died.” It was great how they all came together because of him. That felt perfect.

The relationship between Billy and Jason was great. One of the strongest aspects of the movie, for sure. My favorite scene in the movie might have actually been when the two of them hugged when Billy came back to life. It was just sooo sweet and they both played it so well. Also, my new ship.

I loved all the characters, truly. Naomi Scott has just proved why she needs to be the next Hollywood leading lady. She was excellent in the movie. She really sold Billy’s death scene. A lot of that was on her. Becky G was adorable as Becky, and was able to sell herself as a nobody despite the fact that she’s gorgeous, which was impressive. I wish we could have scene more of this friendship, because they were great every time they were on screen together.

More Zack would have made the movie better too. I liked every scene he was in, but I could have used even more. Ludi did a really good job. I loved Zack’s friendship with Trini. That was really cute, and it was there without seeming forced. His relationship with his mom was also adorable.

As for the other characters. Elizabeth Banks as Rita was a lot of fun, and she actually felt menacing. Bryan Cranston was perfectly cast as Zordon. And Bill Hader was great as Alpha Five.

WHEN THEY PLAYED THE ORIGINAL “GO GO POWER RANGERS” SONG I ABOUT HAD A HEART ATTACK THAT WAS AMAZING.

I won’t lie, the movie did drag a little bit in the middle. At some point, I was just ready to see them morph. But I did like the character building scenes of them getting to know each other. I also wish we had more time to see them fight in their suits before they went into their zords, but I get why that happened.

The entire final battle was just nonstop action fanservice and I loved every second of it. The “hold the line” scene was a little over the top but it still worked and I felt like we had gotten to know these characters enough to actually care about them so seeing them almost die was actually impactful.

The after credits scene! Tommy is coming!

But yeah, that’s just a ramble of my initial feelings about the movie. I’m sure I’ll post more about it. I had so much fun watching it, and I’m ready for the sequels.

A Japanese perspective on imagery in Mothra vs Godzilla

Hiya both,

Great job on the podcast, guys, I just recently started listening as I am midway through my own non-chronological run through the bulk of Godzilla films. I was glad to see you both enjoyed Mothra vs Godzilla as much as I did. It is one of the very best in my opinion also. I just wanted to add a little wrinkle from my Japanese cultural background that might not be obvious but might make MvG that much more poignant to the non-Japanese observer.

Two points to make, really…

One: The scene when the kindergarten/primary school teacher is fleeing Godzilla with the pupils to the other side of the island.

This scene, needless to say, is incredibly affecting just on the surface of it. The scene sells the high stakes - losing innocent children to the monster (rather than just greedy/stupid fishermen and their homes) and the manic desperation of the headmaster ashore on the mainland. However, in addition to that, some cultural background makes this scene even more chilling. By way of explanation, first, indulge me a short paragraph of history.

During WWII, Japan’s battlefront with the US was mainly aerial bombing of strategic targets, and the main ground warfare avenues were in Japan’s imperial conquests, the Pacific islands, famously Guadalcanal in the Solomons. The only time US-Japanese forces clashed on either country’s home turf was in the closing stages of the war when American forces reached Okinawa. For the first time civilians were forced to reckon with a physical enemy presence in their towns and homes, and the self-sacrificing, brainwashed nature of contemporary Japanese society would manifest in unimaginably awful incidents.

You can Google “Okinawa children mass suicides” for details (Reuters, The Guardian, NY Times have covered it), but in a nutshell, the military would hand out two grenades to classroom teachers to use when cornered - one to throw at the enemy, and the other to commit suicide instead of being taken alive. On small islands like in the Okinawa archipelago, there’s only so far you can run before the enemy catches you.

Of course, the Godzilla movies are no stranger to stoic death (the family in the 1954 original accepting their fate at the mercy of Godzilla so that they could meet their deceased father comes to mind) but the mechanics of this scene really stand out to me as the product of deliberate, conscious choices:
• The fact that the scene plays out on an island, with the mainlanders unable to offer support to the women and children - an obvious reference to Okinawa’s physical separation from mainland Japan
• The children, crying as their female teachers console them, are forced to grow up before their time, being made to “march” over a steep hill to get to the far side of the island
• Godzilla, the embodiment of atomic might (wielded by the United States over Hiroshima & Nagasaki in the context of WWII) is the force of doom
• The children and teachers hide in a cave on a sandy beach - in popular culture, the child and infant suicides from WWII are often depicted taking place in hiding spots at the edges of islands - usually stone cliffs and coastal caves

Even without straying from the text of the film, the scene is an emotionally wrenching one, but with the added historical and cultural background (women and children in peril at a coastal cave), the effect is a bone-chilling pathos and dread.

(sorry if that got a bit heavy!) Now for the second point, which I swear will be shorter…

Two: the Japan-specificity of the criticism of (a) theme park construction and (b) over-development of coastlines.

As you’re doubtless aware, in the immediate post-war period following the rewriting of the new demilitarised constitution in 1947, Japan experienced high economic growth, basically from the 1950s through the 1980s. This included wholesale embrace of American pop cultural entertainment-business products such as the movie studio system, Disney and Warner mascot characters, and theme parks.

Even today, Japanese theme parks and extreme rides rank highly in international lists of extreme rides, and Tokyo Disneyland was the first Disneyland in Asia, even before Hong Kong or Singapore, international playgrounds of the Asian affluent. I appreciate you touched on the criticism of capitalism, but I might just add that theme parks are particularly central to Japanese society as an affordable entertainment venue.

Lastly, I’m not sure if you’ve been to Japan, but many coastlines are covered in concrete “tetrapods” as a measure against coastal erosion and tsunamis. These sorts of large-scale, concrete-heavy (in many cases) white elephant projects in rural areas came under intense criticism, especially in the 1990s, as it was revealed that many projects had been fronts for yakuza-related local government corruption. It was also in the 1990s that many opulent theme parks that had sprung up in economically unviable situations in the 1960s through the 1980s went out of business and decayed (the inevitable hangover from three decades of heady development).

The principled messaging of Mothra vs Godzilla, and its optimistic depiction of the idea that the press could influence the people for good, should be commended, especially with a view to how specifically Japanese the major social-economic problems raised in the film are.

Anyway, sorry about the long message. Keep up the good work! Loving the podcast.

Phil


Thank you so much for this! 

Imagine announcing your engagement with Chris.

A/N: This is a request from an anon, about being RDJ’s daughter and dating Chris. I kind of started the way you wanted me to but ended a little differently, still the gist of your prompt. Enjoy. :D

“There are a lot of people here tonight,” Chris chuckled softly as the two of you posed for photos on the red carpet of the Civil War premiere. “That means more eyes on me when I do something embarrassing.” You rolled your eyes at his paranoia. “Oh, I will. We both know from experience that I have the tendency to do embarrassing things around you. Remember the first time we met?”

“How could I forget?” You laughed softly.

You were visiting your dad, Robert Downey Jr. on the set of the first Avengers movie when you first met Chris; you ran into him on the way to your father’s trailer. You knew who he was but he had no idea who you were because he had only just began working with RDJ and was yet to find out that he had a twenty-four year old daughter from a previous marriage.

You had tried to introduce yourself but he was in too much of a panic to realize that you weren’t wardrobe because he had ripped the pants of his Captain America suit and was due for a scene in fifteen minutes. You felt bad for him so you decided to pretend to be wardrobe and help him; you didn’t learn to sew for nothing, plus- you were used to helping your dad with his.

Chris was pretty much smitten with you five minutes into the conversation. Not only were you ridiculously pretty- which he noticed even in his panic; you were down-to-earth, funny, intelligent, and kind. You also shared his tremendous love for all things Disney, a huge plus in his book. It got to a point where he felt the need to ask for your phone number so he could continue to take you out on a date. You gave him your number knowing your father wouldn’t approve of you dating one of his co-stars but it was always easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Speaking of your father, you could still remember the look of horror on his face when he saw you with a pants-less Chris Evans. He was close with Chris now and was incredibly happy that you were dating that great man but that wasn’t how their relationship started. “What the fuck are you doing with my baby girl?!” was the reaction your father had. You remembered jumping between the two before your father attacked him with his Wing-Chun, which he still promises to do till this day if Chris ever hurt you.

“Downey was beyond pissed,” Chris chuckled. “He didn’t talk to me for days after that. I still remember that one day where he literally had the whole cast over for lunch in his trailer city and didn’t invite me. It was months before he finally accepted us together, I think Susan said something to him.”

“I think she did too, ‘cause it would’ve been years if Mom didn’t say something to him. You know how stubborn he can be, he is basically Tony Stark.” The two of you chuckled because it was true. “But look at where we are now, he loves you so much more than he loves me.” You joked and he laughed. “You laugh but you know it’s true.”

“Please,” Chris chuckled. “You are the apple of his eye. As much as he loves me- he’d never love me more than he loves you. You do remember how he iced me out after our first fight, right? He got the whole cast to turn against me, even the stand-ins.” You chuckled softly. “Love me more than you love me, maybe,” he teased with a cheeky wink.

“Definitely,” you bit playfully.

“Hey guys!” The reporter from Extra greeted the two of you as you made your way to the interview line. “I’m with Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr.’s daughter, Y/N. The two of you are still looking as adorable together as ever, how are you tonight?”

“We’re great,” Chris smiled.

“Fantastic, thank you.” You smiled.

“First of all, I have to congratulate you, Chris, on the movie.” Beside you, Chris dropped his head with a widening grin. You gently rubbed his arm, smiling proudly. “You did a wonderful job. The whole world is already raving about the film and half of them haven’t even seen it yet. How are you feeling about it?”

“I am incredibly proud of the work we’ve done. It’s not just me, it’s my cast mates and the Russo brothers but I think a huge part of our success has to do with the guys behind the scenes. Marvel did an incredible job with the story, you know- it was a huge job. There are a lot of big characters with big arcs and they managed to integrate it in a way where it makes sense. I’m incredibly honored to be apart of such a wonderful film and I can’t wait to see what’s next for us.”

“Speaking of what’s next,” the interviewer turned her attention onto you and you raised your eyebrows, unsure of what she was smiling about. “The two of you have been dating for a while now, five years?” You and Chris nodded. “Do we see wedding bells sometime soon?”

You subconsciously brushed your thumb over the empty space on your ring finger where your engagement ring should’ve been but wasn’t because Chris wasn’t ready to go public with it yet. All your friends and family already knew, he just didn’t want the world to know. At least until the press tour was over ‘cause he couldn’t imagine the kind of questions he was going to get if people knew he had recently proposed to Iron Man’s daughter.

“Well,” Chris chuckled nervously. “Uh- You know, we’re happy together and we definitely see a future together but um- there’s still some things we need to talk about.” He looked over at you and you chuckled, pressing your lips together to tell him you weren’t going to help him. “But yeah, it’s on the to-do list.”

“What are we talking about?” You heard your father’s voice and you smiled as he crashed the interview, wrapping his arms around you and Chris. “Hi baby,” he greeted Chris the way he should’ve greeted you, giving him one of his signature cheek kisses. “Hi Y/N,” he greeted you the way he should’ve greeted Chris, giving you nothing but a light pat on the arm.

It was an ongoing joke.

“Hi Dad,” Chris chuckled.

“Hi Downey,” you chuckled.

“We’re just talking about the two of them and when they’re going to get married,” the interviewer informed your dad, whose smile had ten-fold. “What are your thoughts on that? As the father of Y/N, would you want to see her settle down and start a family of her own?”

“Of course I would,” your dad nodded. “I would love to see that happen. She’s my eldest, you know- she’s been in this committed relationship for five years now. I expected a wedding like- two years ago but someone,” he shot Chris a fake dirty look and you chuckled softly. “Can’t seem to catch a hint. Come on, time is running out here. Y/N is young but Chris is nearing forty soon, if he wants to have kids…” He trailed off, trying not to laugh at Chris’ pursed lips.

“Go do your own interview,” Chris covered your dad’s mouth and tried to push him away.

“And miss out on all this fun?” Your dad chuckled. “No way. C'mon Chris, when are you going to propose to my baby girl? When I am going to have the honor of walking her down the aisle and giving her away to you? 'Cause I’m ready whenever you are.” Your dad glanced at you and the two of you tried not to laugh.

“Even Iron Man is begging you to tie the knot, what do you think?” The interviewer asked Chris and he chuckled softly, shaking his head. “Y/N, you’re ready to settle down with Chris right? He’s the perfect specimen, so handsome and incredibly sweet. Would you say yes?”

Both you and your dad looked over at Chris with eyes asking a similar question, for the permission to break the news to the world. He thought about it for awhile then heaved a sigh and nodded. Your dad gave your arm and encouraging squeeze as you opened your clutch and fished out your engagement ring. The interviewer looked down as you slipped it on, her eyes widened with shock.

“I already have.” You held up your hand to the camera, smiling.

“We’re engaged,” Chris announced and kissed the side of your head.

“Oh my God,” your dad pretended to be as shock as he was the first time you announced it. “Congratulations, you two! I am so happy for you guys!” He hugged the both of you tightly, drawing laughter from both you and Chris.

“I love you,” you mouthed at Chris.

“I love you too,” he mouthed back, smiling.
