you don't know how much i love this movie

my fave parts in beauty and the beast:

  • gaston dragging agathe in front of the whole town and then just going like ‘no offense agathe’
  • when lefou asked gaston whether he seriously wanted to be part of belle’s family
  • “is that fair?” - “i don’t care”
  • when gaston told belle that she just had to find the right man and she was all like ‘it’s a small village i’ve met everyone’ like what kind of savage
  • “BE FREE!” iconic
  • lefou spelling gaston’s name
  • beast dragging belle for her taste in shakespeare
  • belle holding back tears when she’s in the library for the first time honestly same
  • lefou’s smile upon realizing that maurice was still alive
  • “there’s a beast running wild, there’s no question, but i fear the wrong monster’s released”
  • maestro cadenza going “ouch” when gaston ditches lefou
  • when chip apologized to maurice for moving and maurice was just like ‘it’s alright’ and then he fucking bolted
  • luke evans singing
  • EVERMORE
  • “too much?” - “…yep”
  • belle teaching that little girl how to read
  • “i didn’t think she would say yes!”
  • when everyone was changed back

Hey @mywaay I love your Road to El Dorado AU

my wonder woman experience

I cried. So fucking much. I couldn’t leave the theatre because I couldn’t stop crying. I sat through the credits and only left so the cleaning staff could do their thing. And I didn’t just cry in the obvious part, I cried every time a woman did anything badass. I did not realise how deprived of female badassery I was. Wow.

I had unreasonably high expectations for this movie and it surpassed every single one. Gal Gadot is a treasure and Chris Pine broke my heart. Everyone was amazing.

I’ve had WW blacklisted for the past week so I have no idea if you all liked it as much as I did, but I hope so :)

This is the worst review ever but just know that I loved it with all my heart.

It’s My Job- Lin x Reader

I’m not putting any warnings, because if period talk bothers you, you need to be educated on the female body. 

Masterlist


You were laying on the bed cramping when the bedroom door opened. Your husband of six years rushed into the room, barely looking up until he saw you still in bed.

“Morning, (Y/N). You feeling okay?” His hair fell against his shoulders, slightly wavy from where his hair band had been the night before. Stubble adorned his cheeks, and the ever-present bags under his eyes were a light purple. He stripped off the t-shirt he wore to bed and tossed it in the hamper before crawling over the bed to you.

A concept: hair pulling and fingers in the mouth with that clunky ring. (THIS is my real kryptonite..zxznxndfk.) (You don't have to expand on this, I just needed to share this.)

Oh, yeah. Yep. Mhmm.

At first it starts out playful - he knows how much you love his rings and he uses that to his advantage. You’re just watching a movie, spooning on the couch, and you’re happy that he let you be the little spoon for once. He’s leaving noisy kisses against your cheek, not paying much attention to the movie, and you’re laughing but also being serious when you tell him to stop because you actually do want to watch the film. Yet, of course, he’s not taking your warnings very seriously, laughing when you nibble at his wrists and the bicep you’re using as a headrest, but when you pop a couple of his fingers into your mouth, he audibly gasps from behind you.

You suck and lick and bite a bit at the skin, taking extra care when you reach the bulky piece on his ring finger, scraping your bottom teeth against the warm metal. He’s damn near whimpering when you shift so that your ass is right up against the bulge in his tight jeans, smoothing his free hand down your side and up again, pushing your hair back so he can get at your neck. It’s not until you swipe your entire tongue over the three fingers of his that are in your mouth that you realize how turned on he is - it’s the bucking of his hips and the groan in the back of his throat that causes you to suck a little harder.

“Fuckin’ love these rings, mmm?” he whispers in your ear. When you nod, he takes his free hand and runs it down your neck and into your hair, pulling it into a fist and giving a slight yank so that the hitch in your jaw is right near his mouth. His hips are rutting into your backside as he growls into the shell of your ear, the vibrations of your moan tickling your tongue when they hit the weighty silver of his rings.

“Want me t’ fuck ye’ with m’rings on?” he asks, his grip on your hair tighter while he runs the tip of his tongue just underneath your earlobe. “Want to feel them against your pretty lil’ bum when I spank ye’ for bein’ such a good girl and openin’ that mouth o’yours?”

And you swear, with all you have in you, he could’ve made you cum right then and there with his rings in your mouth, his words in your ears, and his heat against your back.

Serendipity (2001)

You know the Greeks didn’t write obituaries. They only asked one question after a man died: “Did he have passion?”

Ways to Cheer Yourself Up (When wanting to be alone) - 50 top things to do
  • 1. Go ON Tumblr, believe it or not, we don't care where you're from, what you do, how you're being you, as long as you are being you, you're pretty much welcomed on here. That's why i love it. Unless of course you are homophobic or judgemental or ignorant - then the people will speak for themselves, we look out for each other here.
  • 2. Read Books; escapism is a wonderful thing
  • 3. Listen to music; and no - not the sad, 'ALL BY MYSELF' type music, but the kickass songs like 'I will Survive' or 'Loser Like Me' just celebrate yourself for being awesome, because we know you are; even if others don't; especially then actually.
  • 4. Become your own superhero. Every single one of you have a talent or a dream. Follow up on that talent/dream. YOU ARE WORTH IT, and you can be whoever you want to be.
  • 5. DISNEY MOVIES. Unless you absolutely hate bursting out into song - better cut of highschool musical and glee while were at this, then Disney is the best pick me up ever.
  • 6. Watch your favourite TV shows. Remind yourself why life can be awesome. Watching your fav characters usually means you can relate to them.
  • 7. Go on walks - it's very pretty outside, and sometimes our heads can be overloaded with information or stress, I advise calming music and a nice walk outside in comfortable clothes.
  • 8. Have a diary. A friend of mine recently bought me one, and it's a godsend because all the anger, or emotions I feel, I try to put in the diary rather than putting it out on others. It also calms you down. I feel better when I write.
  • 9. Speaking of writing...if you enjoy it- WRITE. Writing is a wonderful way to escape. You can put all your emotions into your characters and they just come to life. I tend to do that when I'm stressed.
  • 10. If writing is not your thing then bake. I've actually ironically read in a fan fiction where a character would bake when stressed and try out new recipes, this character tried making butterbeer; maybe be adventurous; have a food blog or something to keep you occupied.
  • 11. Be With Your Pets - Pets are loyal creatures, and they love you, even when you're being a pain in the ass, and I hear they're very good listeners.
  • 12. Now I don't know about you, but I LOVE Musicals. If you are a musical fanatic like me and you're feeling a little down, my dears; listen to those awesome voices, because sometimes we just - need - a break (Also, if you haven't watched RENT, watch it - NODAYBUT TODAY...or Starkid...Starkid make the most funniest musical parodies, even if you don't like musicals I suggest it, and if you're not enjoying their YouTube Channel, then I'll eat my own hat).
  • 13. ASK ME ANYTHING. If you really want to talk to somebody but you don't want to talk to people you know and you just want to get things out, my ASK box is always open.
  • 14. Find a hobby. If you don't really want to talk to anybody, that's okay, sometimes we need to just have some 'me time'. In my me times, I usually deactivate from Facebook, and just focus on things that make me happy. Like; Puzzles, Sudoku, Games, writing, cooking, singing, whatever it is...travelling even. Enjoy yourself.
  • 15. Travel. Maybe being stuck in the same place is the problem, maybe you're head wants to be in a place where it can ACTUALLY THINK.
  • 16. Go Hiking. I suppose Hiking is similar to walking but if you're an outdoor person, this is a great way to clear your head and to feel fresh.
  • 17. Hit The Gym. Or even do your own exercises. I like to walk - do crunches, and I love Zumba. I love dancing. If you love being active, this is also another way to clear your mind from negative things.
  • 18. GO SEE A MOVIE!!! When was the last time you had fun? Even if it's just by yourself. You're allowed to treat yourself. Go, enjoy, be surrounded by people, even if they're strangers.
  • 19. If you like coffee, treat yourself for one at a local cafe. Who knows, you might meet your coffee soulmate in a cafe one day.
  • 20. STOP thinking Negative. Have a Pros/Cons List. Try not to outweight the Pros list with the Cons. Please?
  • You are good enough.
  • 21. Write down a bucket List, and start ticking them off. Having goals and dreams is healthy. If you have dreams, then you have a direction of where you're going.
  • 22. Get help. It's okay, if you're head is in a really bad place to reach out to people. It really is okay.
  • 23. Help others. If you're not sure what to do with yourself at all, be useful to other people less fortunate than you. Volunteer! Work with Charity, Feed the homeless, help the guide dogs association.
  • 24. Smile more. It looks good on you, believe me. Spend time with your guilty pleasures, my guilty pleasure is binge watching glee
  • 25. Please DO NOT go to a pub to drink to ease your mind, if you are going to do that, do it with a friend, or somebody close.
  • 26. Eat Chocolate. Okay yes while society says NO DON'T EAT THE FATTY FOOD. Hey; screw them. If you feel better eating a bit of junk go for it. There's nothing wrong with eating a whole pizza or tub of ben and jerry ice cream when feeling upset - just try not to make TOO much of a habit : p
  • 27. REBLOG YOUR FOLLOWERS POSTS, you might be surprised that you aren't the only one feeling the way you're feeling, you might be surprised by how much you're forgetting that hey - it's gonna be alright.
  • 28. Do something nice for your neighbour. Ah who knows, have you ever actually talked to them? Maybe they might be lonely too.
  • 29. Have a GAMES Night. A very good friend of mine loves Games. If You LOVE Games, then hell have a marathon of them. Play the sims, be in control.
  • 30. Speaking of marathons...dun dun dun - MOVIE MARATHON, I Don't Know About You Guys, But Having A Harry Potter Movie Marathon always cheers me Up. WITH FOOD Of course, and good company, but this is about cheering yourself up, so if you don't want company, that's okay.
  • 31. Draw. I love drawing too. I suppose I'm more of the creative person. There are a lot of different types of people out there, maybe you like solving things - do those fancy cube things Idk what they're called. If you are like my brother and you love Maths, then maybe you can tutor someone. On one hand you're helping someone, and doing something you like doing, just like I'm drawing because I like drawing.
  • 32.Be with kids. believe it or not, kids are the most innocent little munchkins, and they honestly don't care what you look like, if you play hide and seek with them they'll be thrilled, so long as you're nice to them, they're generally nice to you... but be warned, they tell it how it is too. I talk a bit different. The most popular thing they've said to me was "Is that why you talk funny, because of the things in your teeth?" (They've also never really seen braces before) I even had one kid determined to get me to sing 'Everything is awesome' I'll never forget that because this kid clearly didn't care how I sounded, and just wanted me to sing with her. I felt great.
  • 33. If you're into Fairy Tales, Please Please Read Chris Colfer's The Land Of Stories series 1-4. It's an amazing series, and you almost forget what world you're in once you start reading. Plus, there's more coming (I'm a little excited)
  • 34. Watch Pixar Movies. You can't go wrong.
  • 35. GO TO HOGWARTS. Harry Potter Fan? Visit - Platform 9 3/4s in London, or go to the Harry Potter World, or if you can't actually visit these sites, go on Pottermore.
  • 36. Read Fan Fiction, you might not be a harry potter fan, but whatever fandom you are in, believe me sometimes Fan Fictfion Cheer me up. I adore Glee *Don't Judge Me* and Dalton is the best thing ever. Or Little Numbers...or Both. They cheer me up big time.
  • 37. Role play. If you like superheroes or characters, go be with the crowd. I believe they have events like Comic Con, and on Facebook they even have Events for such things, go be with strangers! So long as it's safe of course.
  • 38. Write a letter to the person who inspires you most and send it. You might be surprised by an answer.
  • 39. Pick up your instrument. Don't ignore your musical talent if you do have a musical talent. Remember, you're worth it. I don't care what you've done. Pick, It Up.
  • 40. Maybe go visit your family? I know this is about 'quality me time' but if you haven't seen your family in such a long time or are at a distance. Maybe being surrounded by something familiar is what you need.
  • 41. Change Careers. If you're not enjoying what you're doing or studying, change it. I remember in highschool a teacher said you might change your job 10 - 12 times before getting it right. It'okay, you just haven't found where you're meant to be yet.
  • 42. Enter a competition - Who knows what will come from it, take risks.
  • 43. If you're a risk-taker, challenge yourself. IDK how you're going to do that, but google has some pretty good answers. Even ask your tumblr followers, they follow you for a reason after all.
  • 44. Go on a boat. Go Fishing! I don't know, it's not my thing, but if you like fishing, then hell - go out there and fish.
  • 45. Find time for yourself, are you working too much? Maybe you are working too much. You know life doesn't stop for nobody, and if you keep pushing yourself so hard, time will go so fast and you won't realise how much of that time you could have spent on your own self.
  • The world is not going to end if you treat yourself.
  • 46. You ARE Good Enough. Listen to my words. Sometimes encouragement is all we need, when people feel hopeless, or like everything's gone wrong. It's gonna be okay. I promise, just hang in there.
  • 47. Write Down Quotes that Inspire You. I have a wall of these, and of people that inspire me too, and it reminds me of the good things in life when I'm in a crappy mood.
  • 48. Find something to do. If you're not doing anything, go take up a course, research things that interest you, you might be surprised by what comes from it. Join a community that enjoys doing things you do.
  • 49. Go To The Beach - If you live in Australia like me, visiting the beach is actually really calming and me and my best friend always would go on a random drive, and drive up to a beach or a look out, and it was always calming. Enchanting too sometimes. Maybe we forget about the place we live in, and what's exciting about the place. If you're in New York, visit Broadway or The Statue Of Liberty, or if you're in London, go to the London Bridge, or the Eye, visit the Eiffel Tower if you're in Paris...just go Anywhere.
  • 50. Take a random journey. Go on a train to somewhere new, go on a road trip. You never know what's around the corner.

anonymous asked:

in your tags on the hinny post you said you didn't like ginny and I wanted to ask why like if it was just a problem with the way her was developed or the character or whatever things like that you don't have to answer I was just curious!

Honestly, I don’t quite know how to explain why I don’t like her. I know a lot of people love and adore her, and that’s fine for me. I simply really don’t! It doesn’t have anything to do with how her character developed, how the movies portrayed her or because I ship Harry with Draco.

Ginny is too loud and too boisterous for me. Just too much. All this “anything’s possible if you got enough nerve” doesn’t get to me. I don’t feel it. Where’s the vulnerability? I feel like she goes through all the shit and it doesn’t “affect” her, how the hell should I relate to that? I don’t think that attitude is any kind of inspiring in general. She’s independent, brave and doesn’t need anybody. It seems like fierce, fierce fierce is all she’s got to offer. (That’s also a reason why I don’t ship her with anyone, honestly.)

All in all, not my kind of character.

anonymous asked:

Why does someone who simply wanted to do her job over a man a bad thing? Isn't that what people have been asking for in movie relationships? And I mean, even though she loved her job so much she still helped him in the end so I don't get all the hate for Tina. #MoreLove4Tina

#ProtectTinaGoldstein

I know what you mean - if she just followed after Newt like a guppy they’d complain that she’s “boring” or “a weak female character” like make your mind up.

Tina, I feel, has some of the best subtle development in FBAWTFT and I can’t wait to see how she continues to develop in the future movies!

I've got another one for ya, hope you don't mind. Veronica and JD watch a scary movie during a storm and JD acts brave to impress his ladylove, only for her to realize later that he's even more scared than she is.

THIS IS THE CUTEST THING EVER!!!! Of course I can write this! You know how much I love these two, and I love JD being all cute and scared of a horror movie. I hope you like the story!!!!


JD leaned back on the couch and ate another piece of popcorn. By the time Veronica picked out a movie he’d be asleep. “That about this one?” She asked, holding out some sort of horror movie. “Martha told me it was super scary.” She explained. JD rolled his eyes and rolled up to be sitting straight on the couch.

“Come on, Ronnie, that shits not scary.” He scoffed. Veronica stuck her tongue out at him and put the movie in. JD smiled as his girlfriend ran over to jump up on him and wrap the two of them in a blanket. They watched the movie start and the storm outside picked up. Veronica pouted and held onto JD’s arm.

“It’s spooky, right?” She giggled. JD rolled his eyes.

“No.” He told her, ruining her flirting attempt. Veronica laughed and pulled away, shaking her head. JD leaned against her and they watched the movie. It didn’t waste any time to jump right into the scariest scenes. It wasn’t much of a plot line, mostly jump scares and–much to JD’s dismay– a lot of horrifying images. Monsters that popped out, ghost women with pale faces that bled out of the eyes and mouth. All that scary stuff.

As soon as the first one popped out on screen JD jumped and put his head under the blanket behind Veronica. Veronica laughed and turned to look at her boyfriend. “JD, are you scared of the movie?” She asked. JD shot up fast and shook his head.

“What? No. Don’t be crazy, it just… startled me.” He lied. Veronica raised an eyebrow and JD looked away, blushing violently. But luckily for him it was hard to see in the dark light. They watched the movie for a while longer. It was a spooky suspenseful scene, and it was interrupted by a clap of thunder outside.

At hearing this JD let out a little yelp. He quickly clapped a hand over his mouth and Veronica grinned at him. “What’s wrong, JD? You scared?” She teased. JD blushed deeper and shook his head.

“I already said no!” He huffed. Veronica laughed and leaned her head on his shoulder. “Why are you scared?” JD asked, trying to sound like he was taunting her.

“Well, a little. It’s a horror movie.” She laughed. “But if it’s too scary for you I can turn it off. I wouldn’t want my sweet little JD to be too scared.” She teased, ruffling his hair like he was a kid. JD grumbled and smoothed his hair back out.

“Stop it, I’m not scared I just…” JD trailed off and tried not to look at the screen. “Okay so it’s a little scary. But I don’t even care.” He tried. Veronica tilted her head and smiled, moving closer to give him a kiss on the temple.

“Do you wanna hold my hand?” She asked, reaching out to him. JD blushed furiously and tried to look angry.

“No!” He snapped. But then fell back and looked a little uneasy. “W-well I will if you want me to.” He mumbled. Veronica smiled and held his hand in both of hers, moving in so she could cover his face in kisses. “Come on, Ronnie.” He laughed.

“I’ll keep you safe from any monster in that movie. I promise.” She teased. JD made a scrunched up face and his girlfriend kept covering him in kisses.

“I don’t need you to keep me safe, I can handle myself, darling.” He assured, leaning back cooly. Veronica shrugged and moved away.

“Okay then, fine. I’ll just leave you alone in the dark basement then.” She told him. JD froze and brought his knees up to be on the couch.

“Well… if you want to stay you can.” He told her. Veronica laughed and leaned her head on his shoulder.

“I couldn’t leave you even if I really wanted to.” She smiled. JD grinned at her and Veronica took his face in her hands. “You’re alluring to me, Jason Dean.” Veronica told him. “Do you find yourself as drawn to me as I am to you?” She asked, giving him a flirty smile. JD put his arms around her and dipped her down into a deep kiss.

“Darling, I can’t even keep my hands off of you for less than a minute.” He told her. He gave Veronica another kiss and she sighed, leaning into it.

“Well, do I distract you from the movie that scared you so much?” She asked, covering him in kisses. JD was totally lost in the moment, and all he really could do was nod. Veronica then got a cocky smile. “So you admit you were scared of the movie?” She asked. JD then stopped and fell back a tiny bit.

“I uhm… maybe a little?” He tried, blushing even more. Veronica leaned in more, just out of his reach for a kiss. JD rolled his eyes. “Fine, I guess I was scared.” He mumbled. Veronica grinned and gave him another kiss.

“My little scaredy-cat.” Veronica teased, making JD roll his eyes. “I’ll keep you safe from any monster. I promise.” She whispered to him, before stealing one last kiss.

I don't know if you have seen BBC's War&Peace, Tuppence Middelton plays Helene in there and she is SUCH a bitch. Her portrayal of disloyal wife and a slightly maniac person is so very much different than our lovely Riley Blue. It just proves how much a good actor she truly is. I just love her...

Hi everyone. Catch me watching every other show and movie the Sense8 cast may be on. I’m intrigued!

I’ve been thinking for a while about Lego Robin and how he’s a really well written character. As in, better than I even initially realised the first time I watched the movie.

I was questioning for ages why I loved his character so much and why he made me smile everytime he came on screen but now I know why and it made me realise how good the writers of these Lego movies are.

Do you guys mind if I elaborate?

anonymous asked:

Gami I've been going through your Harry tag for about an hour now and though I love all the Dunkirk stuff, I still don't know what you thought of the movie and Harry's performance! I probably missed it so I'll just ask again;) I thought it was a great film and I'm honestly impressed with Harry. He has a much bigger role than I expected! In terms of spoken lines he practically tops the chart. So proud of our boy haha!^^

I don’t think I said anything because I was writing a super-long, complex review about the structure and techniques of Dunkirk and how they apply to the theme. I haven’t actually finished that yet.

I loved Dunkirk 100%.  I think it was brilliantly written, directed, produced, filmed, edited, and acted.  This is sort of a jerky thing to say, but I honestly think the few people complaining about Dunkirk only don’t like it because they utterly missed the point.  You can’t go into Dunkirk measuring it by the patterns and tropes of every other war movie because it’s not cut from the same cloth.  It wasn’t supposed to be from the start.

Harry fits right in with the rest of the cast and in an ensemble movie like Dunkirk, that’s really the absolute best he could do.  Dunkirk may well get some Oscar nominations, but it’s very likely they won’t get any acting ones except for Mark Rylance as supporting actor maybe.  It’s not that the acting was bad, but that the movie isn’t focused on individual characters in the same way most movies are.  

The fact that Harry fits in and plays his part as well as anyone else does is very good.  The movie is all about immersion, so if anything were to take you out of it like bad acting, that would be a failure.

This doesn’t really clinch Harry’s acting ability for outsiders because they’ll be saying something like “but can he carry more weight in a role outside of a non-character-focused ensemble”.  However, because I’ve already seen Harry be hammy and I’ve already seen him be charming as hell, the only thing I didn’t know was if he could be serious and if he could be subtle. It turns out he can do both, so I think he could take on absolutely any role given some time and experience.  It would be a crime if we never got to see him in a rom-com though.

It’s true that Harry has quite a few of the lines in the movie and most of the really memorable ones.  I’ve only seen the movie once so far, so now that I know everything that happens with his character, I want to go back and watch it again to see it from a new perspective.

I find it funny that Harry’s narrative is that he just fell into acting because he likes Chris Nolan.  Like… what singer with no real professional acting experience up and decides to audition for a movie like Christopher Nolan’s just because he likes the movies that director makes even though he doesn’t have any particular desire to act otherwise?  It doesn’t really make sense.  Also, if you think about it, what they’re saying is that the first and only audition he ever did (because he’s not interested in acting apparently, just in Christopher Nolan’s movies), he beat out thousands of people to win the role.  That’s pretty insane the way they’re framing it.

To be clear, I do think he won his audition fair and square, but I don’t think he went into this without the intent to break into acting.  I would wager he auditioned for more than just Dunkirk.  I think he was looking for the right project.  He definitely got acting lessons considering his marked improvement between the Steal My Girl music video and the Between Us perfume ad.

He’s being coy about whether he’ll continue acting, just like he was coy about his plans for the break during the end of OTRA interviews.  At the time I could tell that he was purposefully avoiding talking about / hiding something he had planned.  Right now, I swear he’s doing the same.  I don’t know that he has anything else lined up, but I definitely think he intends to continue acting in the future.  He’s just not saying it right now.

Overall, the image being projected is that he takes acting seriously when he does it, but that he’s not trying too hard to become a “famous” or “respected” actor.  This reminds me of the fact that Louis, Liam, and Niall have all claimed that they didn’t intend to have solo careers at all and just fell into it.  I might buy it from one of them, but not the same basic story from all 3.  

There are various strategic reasons they might be playing their narratives this way, but I couldn’t say exactly why with any certainty.  For Harry, they could be trying to avoid too much pressure and too many expectations.  They could also be trying to keep the focus on Dunkirk rather than making Harry too big of a spectacle (as much as they reasonably can).  

Niall’s image is very laidback, so not pushing too hard for a career fits that image.  Louis’ been assigned the underdog image, so not intending to go solo fits with his image as well.  The reason for Liam’s narrative stumps me a little more, but I’m sure there’s something I’m missing.  Then again, there might be a larger group reason that all of them are spouting the same lines.

I digress ;P  My point was that Harry did quite well and that I expect we’ll be seeing more of him acting in the future no matter what he’s saying during promo.
