man, fuck the dark knight rises.

i know it’s kind of weird that that’s what this photoset makes me think of, but bear with me.

because pacific rim’s defining philosophy was really, really positive, right? it was all about people coming together and helping each other and overcoming adversity—and it got criticized for that. there’s nothing dark or edgy about that message, and lately all movies seem to want to do is be dark and edgy.

so take the dark knight rises, all about moral ambiguity and tortured heroes and blah blah blah, where bruce wayne supposedly pulls a heroic sacrifice only to resurface in the end, alive and well and banging catwoman in florence.

man, that was real selfless of you, bruce. real inspiring.

i guess my point is that i’m sick of faux depth through contrived grittiness in a story that doesn’t even have the balls to commit to its ultimate sacrifice ploy. and it’s not just tdrk, much as i pick on it—it’s all those cynical white guy movies that throw angst and drama at the audience hoping some of it sticks, but still dance around any serious loss and never really go for it.

people died in pacific rim. that surprised me. i was expecting a fun, feel good movie, and it was—but major characters died. as they should have. an optimistic and hopeful movie recognized that sacrifice and death are part of this kind of thing. that’s more than a lot of franchises can say.

i dunno, i found it refreshing that death in pacrim wasn’t cheap or off limits or gratuitous. by the end, most of the pilots are gone. that made the rest of the film so much more heavy. it gave context to a movie about giant robots fighting monsters! it was fucking realistic!!

pacific rim may not be dark or edgy, but it’s still got more balls than half the franchises that are.

you can call a character your precious baby, and gush over them, and think they’re the greatest thing ever,

and still recognize that they’ve done some pretty nasty shit.

please and thank you.

GO---> Once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to 10 of your favourite followers. Thinking good thoughts about yourself is hard but it will make you feel better so give it a go, for the sake of spreading positivity

Oh gosh, wait let me think a minute

1, I’m good at remembering song lyrics from Rammstein

2. I can touch my nose with my tongue

3. I’m creative 

4. I can speak like Gollum

5. I have a funny laugh

American Horror Story: Easter

There was this brilliant moment where he asked me: “Whereabouts do you live?” and I said, “Oh, just in the Hollywood Hills,” I then started saying that one day I hoped to live mortgage-free somewhere. And suddenly I thought, “I’m talking about mortgages with Tom Cruise, who has probably never needed to apply for a mortgage in his life, “Tom Cruise… mortgages… shut up, Lara!”’

sandwidges asked:

hey, my sister just commented on that all couples in fandoms seem to be gay, and said 'why arent there any straight couples?' i said that almost EVERY couple in TV/films are straight, so why cant we have more representation? she said 'if a writer wants to write all straight people just let them, and be happy with what you've got'. i think this a really oppressive comment and im heartbroken, i dont know what to say back though, im stunned. whats wrong with more representation.

I agree with you and your sisters comment wasn’t really nice :/ 

There is hardly no representation of queer people and even if a show features queer characters, they are mostly white men (there is nothing bad about gay white men, but queer woman and queer people of colour really lack representation too .__.)
