MUST WATCH MOVIES
Catherine Keener and I made a list of must-watch movies for Hailee Steinfeld while filming ‘Begin Again’. Here are some of my favorites.
The Philadelphia Story
Sweet and funny, it’s the perfect capsule of that time period.
Great career-making performances from Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway, with a Polish director [Roman Polanski] delivering the best of American filmmaking with a French flair.
Best In Show
Catherine O’Hara leads a cast of comediennes that are beautiful and sexy and funny and loose and absolutely delicious.
I’ve never seen Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, only Alice the tv show based on it. I wish the movie was called something else though. Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore should be the name of a kickass horror movie that is low on blood and guts, but with a really high creepy/eerie factor.
"The “strong” in “strong female character” doesn’t—or shouldn’t, anyway—mean “strong” in a physical or emotional sense. A strong female character is one who’s strongly written, with her own personality, agency, motivations, fears, and goals, whatever those happen to be. Because female characters, like all characters, should be written as complex human beings." (x)
I find it really interesting that the historical men like Vincent Van Gogh, Winston Churchill and Richard Nixon portrayed in Moffat Who are always three dimensional and treated respectfully, while the historical women like Elizabeth the First and Nefertiti, are always love sick idiots drooling over the Doctor.
It almost seems like Moffat cannot take women seriously, even if they ruled nations.
#this is kinda why i’ve lost interest in doctor who
HE BROUGHT IT ON HIMSELF
I actually found this pretty depressing because when Happy asks her if she’s boxed before, she looks so proud of herself when she says she has, and then he just kind of demeans her response by suggesting that she wasn’t a real boxer, and you see her face just drop.
Natasha Romanoff: professional to an extent.
She’s professional the whole way through — Happy is the one who isn’t just stupefyingly unprofessional but vicious in his attempt to punch her when her back was turned.
Literally. He tried to punch a woman he’d just met, before she’d gotten any gloves, before he’d explained anything else to her. Fuck anybody who thinks that Natasha’s treatment of him (which is so obviously instinct and training, not a desire to humiliate him, unlike his violence toward her) is unprofessional.
Frankly, I wouldn’t think any less of her if she did intend to humiliate him. He needed to be taken down a peg or two! Granted, I don’t think that was actually her goal. She probably did react mostly on instinct/reflex. Still, she can’t be blamed either way. Happy was really horrible towards her.

Doctor Who: Even if you’re an average person with an unexciting life, something fantastic will happen and you can challenge yourself.
Moffat Who: You gotta be hot and raised under magical circumstances so some day a megalomaniacal alien will notice you
Reblog if, despite enjoying the character of The War Doctor and John Hurt’s performance, you really wish that it had been Eight who had fought in the Time War.
I love John Hurt and the War Doctor was adorable, but…there was nothing about him or his story that couldn’t have been done by Eight.
This is it. This is the pinnacle of nerdom. This is the greatest height of nerdery that has ever been reached before.
Peter in Loki’s body on a bus downtown to the real Loki and making an excuse that he’s going to a comic convention.
Never will such levels of pure fucking nerd ever be seen again, it’s just not possible. This is a beautiful day, I am glad I am alive to experience this, god bless.
