creativewordspowerfulideas:

Watching a super hero movie directed by a woman is like putting glasses on for the first time.

I didn’t realize how much I had to squint through the “male gaze” till suddenly, miraculously, I didn’t have to.

There were absolutely NO eye candy shots of Diana. There were Amazons with ageing skin and crows feet and not ONE of them wore armor that was a glorified corset. When Diana did the superhero landing, her thigh jiggled onscreen.

Did you hear me? HER FUCKING THIGH JIGGLED. Wonder Woman’s thigh jiggled on a 20-foot tall screen in front of everyone.

Because she wasn’t there to make men drool. She wasn’t there to be sexy and alluring and flirt her way to victory, and that means she has big, muscular thighs, and when they absorb the impact of a superhero landing, they jiggle, and.that’s.WONDERFUL.

Thank you, Patty Jenkins, for giving me a movie about a woman, told by a woman,so I can see it through my eyes, not some dude bro who’s there for boobs and butts.

“By the time the results were certain, Clinton and her advisers felt that it was too late to make a speech; she wanted to consider carefully what she had to say, and went back and forth with her team about the stance to take toward [redacted]. When Schwerin and Rooney came to her suite at the Peninsula Hotel the next morning to go over the draft, Clinton was sitting in her bathrobe at the table. She had slept only briefly, but she was clear: She wanted to take a slightly more aggressive approach, focusing on the protection of democratic norms, and she wanted to emphasize the message to young girls, the passage that would become the heart of her speech. As the pair of writers left her room and walked down the hall, Rooney turned to Schwerin and said, “That’s a president.” Schwerin remembers: “Because here, in this incredibly difficult moment, she was thinking calmly and rationally about what the country needs to hear.” Schwerin said that until then he had held it together. “But I kind of lost it then.””

Hillary Clinton Is Furious. And Resigned. And Funny. And Worried.

Poe Party Feature Length Screening!

We are excited to announce that #PoeParty will be shown on the big screen in its entirety on November 4th at the historic Vista Theater in Los Angeles! We hope to see some of you there in your best Old Hollywood attire. 

AHH! I’ll definitely be going! Who else?!?!

I’m trying to figure out if there’s any way I can do this. Unfortunately I live a couple of hours away, have a docent tour at 10 the next morning, and am not as good at shrugging off sleep deprivation as I used to be. But I’m thinking about it…

I came to my senses and decided I really had to be there. So I’m going! 🙂

I’ll be cosplaying as a stache-less Poe – in the sense that I’ll be rocking my best socially-awkward, lacking-in-corporeal-friends vibe. But seriously, I just really wanted to be there.

Update: I’ll be paying a price when I have to get up in a few hours. But it was SO worth it! 😄

A smoke seemed to rise up and darken the sun’s disc to the hue of blood, as if it had kindled the grass as it passed down under the rim of the earth.

Furiosa is more badass than even we realise

Friday, June 5th, 2015

wizardinhistower:

Major spoilers below.

So I’ve seen Fury Road like three times now and I had some time to think.
Furiosa is a lot more badass than even we seem to realize. I’m not even talking about all the ass we see her kick during the movie. I’m talking about all the ass she must have kicked before the movie.

So Imorten Joe has built this whole hypermasculine suicide death cult of Warboys who are all male to a T. He keeps a harem of “breeders” and has other lactating women working as milk factories. Clearly not someone who thinks women have any place near combat.

But Furiosa is one of his Imperators. It’s never explicitly stated, but there’s no way Imperator is not a military title, probably like a general or some such. I mean, it comes from the old word for Emperor.

Given the whole Warboy culture, it makes sense that the Imperators must be the best fighters of the lot, and of the bunch, Furiosa must be the very best. She would have to be, to have the title both as a woman and missing an arm.

I can’t get over this. Furiosa kicks so much ass, the super sexist Tyrant respects and fears her enough to put her in charge of the army over all his other soldiers.

And clearly the Warboys feel the same. When Furiosa first goes off road, one of them asks if there’s been a change of plans. When she says “heading east” the guy doesn’t even blink, he just passes the info down the line. The Warboys are clearly used to taking orders from Furiosa and respect her enough that they don’t question her.

When the Warboys back at the Citadel are gearing up and Nux asks what happened, one of the Warboys tells him Furiosa has gone rogue. You can tell from the way he says her name and the look on both their faces that this freaks them out.

I can almost hear Nux thinking “oh god, why her?”

And Imorten doesn’t just go after her himself, he calls EVERY LAST WARBOY HE HAS, not to mention everyone from Gas Town and the Bullet Farm, which is why the Citadel is undefended and our heroes can do their crazy plan.

Because Imorten literally sent every soldier he had to take down this one woman.

Hey all! We pumped out the first video of our series “Nature Boom Time” and it’s pretty fun. We’re still working out some kinks in the equipment and storytelling methods but we’re pretty jacked up about this first draft. Take a look, share it around, and let me know what you think! Thanks a bunch!

Things I love about this video: 

  • eagles
  • innovative storytelling and fantastic use of props 
  • Charlie is great
  • eagles are fantastic
  • going outside is the best
  • nature is everything
  • I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS SERIES

Every ‘Flight of the Conchords’ fan needs to see this vampire comedy 

Forget about contemporary depictions of sparkling vampires and soft-focus neck-sucking: Vampire lore is filled
with horror and violence. It is also, as filmmakers Taika Waititi and
Jemaine Clement note, filled with comic possibilities.
