the thousand foot journey comes out in like a week if you like movies about cooking
oh shit i forgot about that one, mom would probably love it.
Oh wow, then have you chosen?
i mean i really wanna see GotG but while it is def weird i think my mom would like it.
I don’t want to bother explaining to my mom why Lucy is racist and that it doesn’t actually count as feminism if you have to be racist to do it.
Maybe edge of tomorrow, though again it falls under weird.
I think CA:TWS might still be playing so there is also that.
i was talking to my mom about how we should hang out, just the 2 of us, no step mom no grand kid.
She told me to find a movie in the theater, then added ”nothing too weird though ok?”
pacific rim is literally just a fucking remake of space jam
endgame is the protagonist and their team up against a team of aliens trying to get an object in a hoop
it’s the same fuck damn movie how’d they get away with this
I like Parrish because he’s just a ‘go with the flow’ type of guy like
Ninja killing people? Okay.
Someone bombs the police station? Okay.
Suspicious boy turning up at a demolished home and his finger prints come up for a much older man? Mmmkay.
Pretty little lady in a house where a family died in and finds a meat locker full of dead people? Gee, this lady is pretty.
Pretty little lady a psychic? Okay.
Sheriff looks suspicious at times? Mmalright.
I think i just saw a feminist Home Depo ad…
So in the comics Hawkeye has 80% hearing loss.
The Black Widow is Russian.
Can you imagine when they’re on a mission and something goes wrong; the police are about to arrest them and they fall back on Plan H.
Black Widow, “So remember, you’re deaf and I don’t speak English”
How big a leap is it for you to be in a big Marvel movie like Captain America?
For any actor, it’s huge and you really get an understanding of that when you see guys like [Robert] Redford show up to do a role. What’s happening now is I think since all the Marvel movies had such a wide range of viewers globally that you’d be crazy not to want to be involved on some level with the Marvel people. They do it like nobody else. For me it’s a great opportunity because it’s an international film. It just raises your exposure that much more.
Instead of having teeth, penguins (like this rockhopper) have barbed tongues and throats. The barbs point backwards to help direct a penguin’s slippery catch towards its belly.

Penguins: they’re more metal than you.
Well hello Predator, fancy seeing you here.
…I feel like someone should have told me this before now.
From their announcement:
For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.
We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.
Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.
you know actually it was super important to me that these guys and the vast majority of front-of-train people, and all the people in the highest positions of power were all white. snowpiercer is the least subtle allegory to ever allegory— bunch of white guys pulling the strings, fucking shit up, proselytizing at each other and choosing another white dude to succeed them?
and the one white dude who changes the paradigm choosing to ally himself with and protect poc children at great personal cost (not just that scene at the end where he sacrificed himself to protect yona and timmy, but also in the axegang scene when he physically stepped in front of yona). the fact that he was tempted was important, the fact that in the end he chose to sacrifice comfort and a good life and align himself with the marginalized and oppressed was so important.
another way to look at it: namgoong was always resisting, he was always ready to tear down the system. curtis saw what the system had to offer and he was seconds away from taking it— but he was the only one offered it and probably the only one who WOULD be offered it. compare and contrast to how people who weren’t considered white in the US chose to be complicit (e.g. the irish) and managed to gain all the advantages of a white cultural identity but only because they looked a certain way.
the difference is that seconds away from being indoctrinated, curtis glimpsed the cost of buying into that system (what it costs to people he cares deeply about) and he decided FUCK ALL THAT SHIT LET’S BLOW THIS FUCKER and he needed namgoong’s initiative and yona’s help to do it (alternatively, namgoong needed curtis’s help to do it because curtis was the only one with the opportunity to get that close to wilford presumably cause wilford and gilliam were racist af)
The thing that gets me, the hardest, is the fact he basically DID accept it at the end, until Yona shows him the truth about the Engine…. the Engine cannot be reformed, it cannot be “fixed”, even if you tried to restructure the society, the very Engine itself has to run on abusive, horrid exploitation and violence.
