This thread will serve as the Daily Planet for announcements and information that is released from Funko for the convention's exclusives. We'll be keeping a link to the discussion threads along with an easily viewable guide. Anything with a TBD has not yet been officially announced and anything with a question mark is unconfirmed speculation and/or unofficial sources. This does not mean it's right nor does it mean it's wrong.
Do you still have questions? Here are some answers to the most common ones.
When is THE CON? The virtual convention is July 19-25. The physical con is cancelled due to COVID-19. It's hard saying if/when the physical in-store releases will be available but July 22 has been thrown out by two sources. Number of releases are likely to be down this year. Beyond that is anyone's guess as Funko plays everything close to the vest. We will try to update as leaks come online. HOW DO I BUYYYYY??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Our best guess is that things will operate like normal in that there will be in store releases and online releases but none of that information has been released yet. The date of July 22 has been announced by two sources. We likely won't know until the day before everything is set to go live if Funko follows tradition. I sense things will be rather bad since all the visible marketing team was let go. What does shared mean? The exclusives that are shared are items that can be found in stores outside of the convention or Funko's online shop. Places like Gamestop, Hot Topic, Amazon, Target etc. will all have their pops available either online, in store or both. I'm new to collecting, what is happening? Why is everyone angry and the sub on fire? A handful of times a year Funko produces a number of exclusive items that are one time only and will never be seen again. It's often a mad scramble to get what you need before they're all gone and to get them you have to pay inflated flipper prices. My suggestion is if you don't find something in-store right away, wait a few weeks for the price to stabilize, or come down to a non-astronomical amount and then make your second hand purchase if you must. I have to work/babysit/go to school/sleep/make a baby. Can I make a post and ask for someone to help me out and get something since I'm busy? No. That is called backpacking and we do not allow backpacking requests on /funkopop. You may B/S/T with someone on /funkoswap after the fact but you may not make the request ahead of time. Please read the full rules for a full explanation if you still don't understand. How do I get notified of things going live? For this regexr has you taken care of. Go here to find out how to sign up for twitter notifications which go live instantly. Items are usually up on the sub within minutes but sometimes that can be too late. I have more questions!!!! Then please seek out the weekly QandA thread by using the search bar or commenting down below to have any additional questions answered.
2020.06.14 16:40 gracegilliganI watched Season 6, Episode 1 “Loser Like Me” for the first time in years, and I’m still angry about Klaine. (My commentary)
Btw, a lot of ‘fucks’ and other curses are said, as well as too many LOL’s, and like half of this commentary is about Klaine. Enjoy my descent into madness. -HOLY SHIT THIS DUDE LOOKS LIKE HE’S ABOUT TO DRIVE OFF A CLIFF IT’S SO QUIET RACHEL’S PRODUCER ABOUT TO GO OFF THE DEEP END -Damn I really can’t imagine a show being so bad that literally no one likes it. -Rachel has some of, if not, the best hair on this show change my mind. -hER PRODUCER’S NAME IS MR. PAULBLATT NOW I’M THINKING ABOUT PAUL BLART -“that’s so rachel” LOL -wow the star fell off her trailer door the symbolism is flavorful look at how the mighty have fallen. -awww she’s so sad WHY DIDN’T YOU STAY ON BROADWAY YOU ARE BOO BOO THE FOOL RACHEL -why did I think she was singing a cover of “Creep” by Radiohead??? Now I want hear her sing that shit dude. -HOLY SHIT THE VOCALS ON THIS OPENING SONG HER VOICE IS SO GRITTY -while she sulks in silence I’m gonna say this: I think I just hate S6 so much because it’s just like “how the fuck did we end up here? why were these characters screwed over like this? why didn’t they make it harder for Rachel to be on Broadway and her getting Funny Girl would be the S6 finale end goal?” -OH NO DID RACHEL’S DADS DIVORCE OH NO OH NO I DONT REMEMBER THIS BUT RACHEL JUST SAID “WHERE’S DAD?” AND HER OTHER DAD JUST SAID SIT DOWN OH NO OH NO -I JUST GASPED THEY GOT A DIVORCE MY FUCKING HEART ARE YOU JOKING I DONT REMEMBER THIS WHAT THE FUCK I ALREADY KNOW KLAINE IS COMING UP AND THE WRITERS HAD TO BREAK UP TWO ICONIC GAY COUPLES ON THIS SHOW FUCK YOU -aww “it’s been bad for a long time” that’s reasonable then to get a divorce but irl jeff goldbloom was probably doing other projects tbh and just couldn’t be on the show anymore. -I’m gonna fucking cry this dad (I think his name is Leroy?) is precious. -AHHH ITS FIGGINS AND HE’S A BARISTA??? LOOOOOOOOOL THIS POOR MAN GOT FUCKED BY SUE SYLVESTER ABSOLUTELY FUCKED -Blaine do be looking fine tho🚫🧢 -Holy shit she’s been gone for months and in that little span of time literally everything and everyone around her has fallen apart, except Will, like how did this dude come out on top? lmao -FUCK BLAINE SAID KLAINE BROKE UP IM GONNA KMS -good god why did they fuck up klaine so badly??? Literally why? I get they have to put them through the ringer just as much as any other straight couple on this show but literally Klaine has just been getting fucked since S4 tbh -LOL Blaine is saying “I guess this is what they say happens to high school relationships after college” UM NO LOL your relationship got fucked by writers literally trying to demolish any semblance of stability in your connection to one another FOR NO REASON like I cannot stress enough how much klaine has been torn apart -aww Blaine got depressed poor baby -ARE YOU JOKING HE GOT CUT FROM NYADA DUDE WHY ARE THE WRITERS FUCKING OVER EVERYONE????? I GET THEY’RE TRYING TO MAKE EVERYTHING SUCKY SO THAT THE ONLY WAY THINGS CAN GO FROM HERE ARE UP BUT CMON DUDE -warbler coach blaineeeeeeeee -now the dynamic duo of Blaine and Rachel will truly overtake the show and become it’s legacy -lol I did not remember “Suddenly Seymour” being here this early but tbh it’s actually a sweet song for the circumstances -oh god they’re singing but I’m just not ready to see the flashback of klaine breaking up -I’m sorry but why are Blaine and Rachel’s high note belting faces the EXACT SAME all scrunched up- -aww he reached up and patted her head -HOLY SHIT SUE IS REIGNING LIKE THE TYRANT SHE IS but getting results? well I guess that’s likely due to fear. -why do I remember S6 as McKinley just being completely empty??? Like when I think back to S6, all the hallways are empty and there’s just a vague sense of nothing? -what is it like for actors to be casted for roles where they get shamed for being overweight and in their scripts are told to go stand in the “pigpen” Sue has set up for overweight students and have to wear pig noses? -what a sentence I just wrote -that honestly sucks that the newbies from S4 were basically just kicked out off the show and the excuse is that they were transferred by Sue to different schools. -I’m sorry but why is Rachel just ghosting around the school LOL GET OUT -KURT MY BABY BOY -DAMN I SAW THAT BOY EYEING KURT NEXT TO THE BULLETIN BOARD -HE GOT ON TINDER AHHHHH -UM EXCUSE ME “RICH” IS HOT C’MON KURT HE’S A PSYCHIC -oh god Kurt you’re rambling -awww he’s not over Blaine, Rich the psychic could tell -WHY DOES THE FRONT GUY SINGING IN THE WARBLERS LOOK LIKE BLAINE IM SHOOKETH -oh I’m just now remembering that they’re taking steroids or something right? Or was that a S4 plot point. Nvmd I’m pretty sure that was S4. -OOOO IM LOVING THIS SONG THAT THEYRE SINGING ESPECIALLY THE CHORUS -some of these warblers are flashing crazy eyes dear god -OMG BLAINE’S FALSETTO FUCKING SLAY ME TO BITS -I’m sorry but I can’t help but laugh a little when I watch them sing because it’s cool but at the same time it’s cringe to me I can’t help it -damn do you guys ever think about how Blaine must feel to walk by the dalton staircase everyday and remember how he met Kurt and how he proposed to the love of his life there and then think about all the memories they shared in Dalton together wow -RACHEL ROASTED BLAINE FOR BEING TOO OLD TO BE SINGING WITH THEM BUT SHE STILL LURKING AROUND HER OLD HIGH SCHOOL OK RACH -COACH MOTHERFUCKING BIESTE SLAY ME -I don’t really care about Sam at this point? LOOOOOL IS THAT BAD TO SAY? I JUST DONT -a “whiny Hummel” what kind of insult- -SAM JUST GOT PELTED IN THE HEAD BY SPENCER’S WATER CUP AND SAM JUST SMILED AND SAID HE’S A SWEETHEART LOL now that’s comedy. -I kind of don’t like Spencer from the start I get he’s supposed to be an intentional jerk but tbh I’m so tired of new characters. -we stan Sue giving previously incarcerated inmates the chance to find a job after getting out of prison. -Rachel what do you expect from Sue?? You reamed her out for being in your apartment in NYC (as you should have) but now you’re on her turf honey she ain’t gonna have compassion for you no more. -NO FUCK NO THE KLAINE FLASHBACK IS HERE MY FACE IS SCRUNCHING UP LIKE IM GONNA CRY I DONT WANNA SEE IT I HAVENT WATCHED IT IN YEARS -FUCK MY LIFE -wait is this not the flashback? -OH FUCK IVE BEEN HOODWINKED IT WAS A CLEVER WAY TO TRANSITION INTO THE FLASHBACK BECAUSE HES SITTING INSIDE THE RESTAURANT BUT HE LOOKS OVER TO SEE THE SEAT HE WAS SITTING IN OUTSIDE WHEN THEY BROKE UP FUCK ME -OH NO BLAINE LOVES HIM SO MUCH -fuck me, you know what? I hate that they broke up but you can tell that they needed to. That’s not to say that I’m not furious with the writers for making their relationship go down this path, but as it was written, Kurt clearly just wasn’t as in it as Blaine was. Kurt obviously just seems so fed up with Blaine while Blaine is brimming with excitement about their wedding -fuck man -AHH I DONT WANT THEM TO FIGHT BUT THEY DID AN EXCELLENT JOB OF SETTING UP THE TENSION I CAN FEEL IT -GOD BLAINE IS SO PUT OUT FUCK -I remember being 13 and watching this and being so devastated -KURT YOU UNGRATEFUL PIECE A SHIT -OH GOD WHEN BLAINE ASKS “What’s the matter” my HEART IS CRACKING -CMON DUDE THESE FIGHTS ARE SO CONVOLUTED FUCK YOU WRITERS A 3 HOUR FIGHT ABOUT TOOTHPASTE??? -OH MY GOD I FEEL SO UNCOMFORTABLE JUST WATCHING THEM FIGHT I HAVE TO PAUSE EVERY SECOND -fucckkkkkkkk Kurt said “maybe I don’t” (wanna marry Blaine) yikeesssssss -I’m sorry but Darren Kurt’s eyes are WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST WRITE LOOOOOOL DARREN KURT????

Will seems like he would be a great coach for vocal adrenaline. Sue was right tbh, with an actual budget he could do wonders. -ew stop trying to relate to them Will, be emotionally detached it’s the only way vocal adrenaline knows -For the show’s purposes, Will and Rachel talking doesn’t seem too weird (kind of is) but imagine irl if a student and teacher still kept up with each other like this I’m sorry that’s just a lil inappropriate imo LOL -I DONT LIKE THIS SHOT OF JUST THEIR FACES LOOKING AT ONE ANOTHER AND SMILING IT’S TOO INTIMATE LIKE A ROMANTIC SHOT -fuck yes “come what may” is in this season fuck you writers, WAIT NO IT’S NOT I’M THINKING OF SUE AND BECKY BREAKING THE 4TH WALL AND WATCHING KURT’S MOULIN ROGUE FANTASY LOL -Sam looks kind of good with dark hair???? -EW IM WITH RACHEL I DONT WANT TO WATCH THATS SO RACHEL STOPPPPPP -I’m gonna throw up fuck this show is bad -I can really imagine how this would be the worst television show in history now -LOL THE BRITTANY GIRL, NITTANY, IS UNCANNY -I feel like I should know this but is that Carrotop?? Or just a man with a carrotop-like appearance? -“this isn’t the beginning you imagined” UM BLAINE SHE HAD A BEGINNING ON BROADWAY AND NYADA THAT SHE THREW AWAY DONT FEEL BAD FOR HER -LOL SEEING WILL SURROUNDED BY ALL THESE PEOPLE MAKES ME REALIZE THAT BEFORE WHEN HE NEVER HAD ANY ADULT FRIENDS, HE WAS JUST WAITING FOR HIS STUDENTS TO BECOME ADULTS TO BE HIS FRIENDS LOOOOOL -KURT IS FUCKING BACKKKKKKKKK BBYYYYYY -um can Rachel start acting like a friend for Kurt she’s kind of acting distant -OH GOD RACHEL AND KURT ARE GONNA RUN THE GLEE CLUB -OMG HE SHOWED UP OUTSIDE THE LOFT FOR THE PROMISE OF FRIENDSHIP AND NO ONE ELSE DID HOLY SHIT THATS DEPRESSING -HE REALIZES HE BLEW THE BEST THING THATS EVER HAPPENED TO HIM HE SAID -HE STILL LOVES BLAINE -FUCK ME BLAINE WAS FIGHTING FOR KURT IN SEASONS 4-5 AND NOW KURT HAS TO FIGHT FOR HIM IN SEASON 6 IM TIRED OF THIS -oh god sue is gonna kill them -AT LEAST KURT DIDNT DROP OUT OF NYADA -“you smell like a nursing home” well actually Sue he’s gonna be dating someone who smells like a nursing home soon- -FUCK ME IS THE KAROFSKY REVEAL REALLY IN THIS EPISODE???! -I FUCKING HATE THIS SO MUCH. I don’t care if Dave changed as a person, that’s great for him. But imagine dating the love of your life who suffered a tremendous amount of bullying from one person, who forcibly kissed him without consent and physically harmed him multiple times. Even if that person changed, you’re still gonna date them even though the love of your life, even if you’re no longer together, suffered because of them??? FUCK YOU -oh honey Kurt you’re gonna wish it was Sebastian -awww Blaine’s “hi I hope you weren’t waiting long” was so cute fuck me -WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT BLAINE LOOKED LIKE HE WAS GONNA KISS KURT WHEN HE WENT IN TO HUG HIM -PROLONGED HAND ON KURT’S SHOULDER -wow Kurt just really came out with it and said he’s here to get Blaine back a little too pushy Kurt ease up bby -OMG HOW DOES BLAINE FEEL HE LOOKS SO SHOCKED -AWWW KURTS TELLING HIMSELF NOT TO CRY -okay as much as I hate that they had Blaine and Karofsky date, I fucking love that we get to see more of Dave. He’s so fucking adorable. -IM SCREAMING JUST SEEING DAVE COME INTO THE SCREEN -DO YALL REMEMBER WATCHING THIS ON TV WHEN IT FIRST AIRED AND FEELING SHOCKED OUT OF YOUR MIND HOLY SHIT THE NOSTALGIA?? -IM SCREAMING INTO MY PILLOW THIS IS A NIGHTMARE SITUATION -MY BODY FEELS HOT -BLAINE YOU KNOW THIS IS CROSSING A FUCKING LINE MAN CMON -AW DAVE’S A COUNTRY BEAR HE’S ADORABLE -MY FACE FEELS HOT -YIKES “YOGI AND BOOBOO” WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT IM GONNA THROW UP FUCK -BLAINE YOU KNOW THIS IS WRONG -HOLY SHIT IS KURT HAVING A PANIC ATTCK -OMG THIS IS MAKING ME CRY HES CRYING IN THE BATHROOM -WILL WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS LURKING -Kind of a weird song to end the episode with “Let It Go”? Ok lol go off -damn they really dressing Rachel up for every episode -Aw new directions sign up sheet -ew that was an awkward thing for Rachel to say right into the camera’s soul “the cold never bothered me anyway” shut the fuck up lol -UM QUINN IS COMING BACK FOR THE NEXT EPISODE???? I SAW IT IN THE PREVIEW WHY DID I NOT REMEMBER HER COMING BACK AFTER THE “100” EPISODE??? Okay so that was a journey, I’d say overall the episode was a 6/10 for me. They really just fucked up a lot of plotlines and relationships and there’s really only so many times a relationship can be broken up before it can’t feel the same as it did before. They really should’ve, imo, had Rachel getting on a Broadway be the S6 finale or one of the final episodes instead of this BULLSHIT.
2020.06.12 06:29 gracegilliganI watched Season 5, Episode 1 “Love, Love, Love” for the first time in years and here’s my commentary.
Season 5 E1: “Love, Love, Love” -Oop I got real confused why Rachel was auditioning for Funny Girl then I remembered she hasn’t yet been cast or thrown the part away after dreaming about it her whole life, like in S6 -UM EXCUSE ME RACHEL WHILE SINGING “YESTERDAY” LOOKS AT A PICTURE OF THE OG CLUB POSING WITH THEIR TROPHY AND HER AND SANTANA ARE HOLDING HANDS OMG THE FRIENDSHIP -Um Blaine looks so hot in the black and white pics they have at the start of introducing the glee club back???? His hair??? -I gotta say, the tone right off the bat isn’t quite hitting as energetic or upbeat as they’re trying to make it. Everyone seems a bit monotone. -HOLY SHIT ARTIE AND KITTY ARE TOGETHER???? AND THEY’RE LITERALLY SO CUTE? I’m a sucker for the unapproachable, closed-off character opening up because of love tbh. -bitch Artie killin his vocals right out the gate wtf. Tbh tho, kitty’s voice is not fitting the song. -IM SORRY BUT ARTIE IN HIS WHEELCHAIR ON THE SPINNING RIDE AT THE CARNIVAL IS SENDING ME IT DOES NOT LOOK SAFE AT ALL -tbh I feel like this is a good group of people for the club? Like it feels like everyone generally likes each other? I’m really not getting any animosity towards anyone or at least there’s been no outright remarks. Tina did say “and you wonder why everyone hates you” to Kitty but tbh there was no fire to her words. -Good lord who is this Bree girl honestly hop off of Kartie’s dick and get the fuck outta here. Wannabe Cheerio headass. Such unnecessary drama. -CAN KARTIE JUST LIVE? -OO FIRST APPEARANCE OF SANTANA AND SHE’S HOT -aH KLAINE HAVING A PICNIC FUCK ME UP but tbh that’s a little cringe to have a picnic in the middle of school lunch BUT FUCK ME UP KLAINE -is klaine not together yet?? Blaine seems jealous about this “New York guy” even tho Kurt says there’s no story? -I’m sorry but are they really hashing out their problems in the middle of everyone? 😅 I guess they’re not together yet. -Good lord can Blaine take accountability for cheating on Kurt? He’s like “we’ve been over this I thought you were done with me” um?? You were still together and cheated on him? Can you own up to it? -so much eye contact between klaine. Btw they have such beautiful eyes respectively. Blaine’s look almost greenish? -AHHH THEYRE DATING AGAIN BLAINE LOOKS SO HAPPY -IM WEAK KURT’S DRAMATIC ASS SAID HE DIDNT WANT BLAINE’S FLASHMOB TO SING TO HIM AND THEN PULLS OUT A FUCKING WHISTLE TO START HIS OWN I WHEEZED -Kurt’s kick up is so dramatic I love it -Blaine and Kurt really are made for each other if they don’t cringe into oblivion at being sung to constantly in front of the school’s entire population. -Damn Blaine popped off on that “Got to get you into my life” note fuck -Aww they love each other so much, this is actually so sweet -IM SCREAMING THE KISS AT THE END OF THE SONG FUCK BOYFRIENDS BOYFRIENDS BOYFRIENDS -SUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE -okay, so that’s how she’s allowed back. Becky apparently confessed to the gun and got suspended for a month. -poor figgins lol SUE SET HIM UP AND GOT TO BE PRINCIPAL -Aw he’s the janitor now -Omg fuck me up with all these Artie songs. His voice is magic tbh. -HOLY SHIT THE MOMENT WHERE ARTIE SEES KITTY IN THE DARK CLASSROOM AND THEY SING “Hey” IS SO CUTE AND MY HEART IS ACTUALLY CRYING FOR THEM??? -tina’s hating ass lol -IM SCREAMING EVERYONE IS LIKE “SHOULD YOU BLAINE?” WHEN HE SAYS HES GONNA ASK KURT TO MARRY HIM LOOOOOOL LITERALLY EVERYONE KNOWS IT’S A BAD IDEA -oh Sam we stan an ally and supportive best friend -I’m sorry but can we talk about how Blaine’s eyes literally SHINE???? -WAIT ARE WE GONNA SEE SEBASTIAN BECAUSE THE WARBLERS ARE COMING??? -Blaine’s Russia comment actually made me snort -Wow that cut into “Help” was really abrupt -HOLY SHIT I FORGOT ABOUT WILL TBH OMG WHY DOES HE HAVE SUCH A DARK LOOK ON HIS FACE WHEN EVERYONE LEAVES THE CHOIR ROOM CHILL DOG -insert the “why are you running?” vine here -wtf is this dance team in the auditorium McKinley has a dance team?? -dAMN JAKE DOIN A BACKFLIP -LOL Kitty pushing a girl talking to Artie -I’m sorry but them signing at the deaf glee club after realizing they can’t understand them was cringe af -LOL WHY IS WILL COMING TO DALTON -FUCK ITS SEBASTIAN FUCK FUCK FUCK MY LIL BABY BOY -he had such a bitch face lol like who tf is interrupting us -AW SEBASTIAN IS SUPPORTIVE -Tina really needs to chill the fuck out -OO RACHEL BOUT TO SHOW THESE CASTING DIRECTORS HOW IT’S DONE -SANTANA’S HAIR LOOKS AMAZING -btw I gotta say it CARLISLE FROM TWILIGHT -AHHH COACH ROZ -why the fuck is will screaming right out the gate chill the actual fuck out dude Jesus -Jane Lynch was a fucking treasure for this show. -HOLY SHIT TINA SIT THE FUCK DOWN WHY ARE YOU POUTING LIKE A FUCKING TODDLER -now THIS Kitty is cool I can dig her. She’s not cruelly mean she’s actually chilled out -FUCK OFF TINA UNCROSS YOUR DAMN ARMS -LOL I HAD NO IDEA THERE WOULD BE A TINA INTERVENTION BECAUSE OF HOW BITTER SHE’S BEING LOL FUCKING GOOD -omg I love the friendship of this club?? Everyone gets along so well. Tbh only Tina is the one who doesn’t fit in cus she’s being a bitch -ew the meat thing -HOLY SHIT IM GONNA CRY BLAINE LOOKS SO FUCKING HOT WITH HIS HAIR LIKE THAT???? IM GONNA DIE HOLY SHIT LOOK AT IT -LOL HOW DOES KURT KNOW HES GONNA GET PROPOSED TO??? -BURT “THE BEST CHARACTER ON THIS SHOW” HUMMEL LADIES AND GENTLEMEN -DONT GET MARRIED IF YOU DONT FEEL CONFIDENT KURT -AHHHH MERCEDES WHY IS MY BABY BEING SLEPT ON??? -tbh I’m all for grand gestures of love but proposing in front of a lot of people adds a lot of pressure for someone to say yes... -awww short king Blaine is so in love with Kurt -AUNTIE SNIX -HOLY SHIT IM AN ACTUAL DUMBASS THE “dance team” I REFERENCED EARLIER WAS ACTUALLY VOCAL ADRENALINE IM A MORON -I’m actually getting like teary eyed watching this proposal??? Fuck -THEY DID THE PANNING SHOT OF WHEN KURT FIRST CAME TO DALTON -CONFESSION IVE NEVER WATCHED THE PROPOSAL OF KLAINE BEFORE FUCK ARE THEY GONNA DO IT ON THE STEP THAT KURT MET BLAINE??? FUCK -I’m sorry but this seems like it would’ve been so awkward to film LOL Kurt just looks surprised while everyone is smiling like lunatics and singing at him -KURT LOOKS PETRIFIED LOOOOOL -omg my heart Blaine looks like Kurt is the only one he’s seeing -“my soul knew something that my body and mind didn’t know yet” IM GONNA CRY OMFGGGG -FUCK ME IM A SUCKER FOR THE IDEA OF LOVERS MEETING EACH OTHER IN DIFFERENT LIFETIMES GODAMMIT IM NEVER GONNA FIND SOMEONE TO LOVE ME LIKE THIS -IM SORRY BUT CAN YOU IMAGINE ALL OF THIS BUILD UP AND KURT SAYING NO LOOOOL -IM CRYING FUCK ME -THAT’S WHERE IT ENDS? FUCK My overall review is that the tone for the episode was a little lackluster and didn’t seem to come across as energetic as they wanted it to be, but it was still a pretty good episode. My favorite songs from the episode were definitely “Got To Get You Into My Life” “Drive My Car” “All You Need is Love” and “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away” (that was my #1 fave from the episode). Honestly, it seems like the dynamic between screen time between students and teachers is off? I honestly forgot about Will until he was shown again at the 20 minute mark after being shown once in the beginning of the episode. Tbh, I can already tell the writers are going to try and stretch attention between the Sue/Will dynamic, the kids in glee club, and then everything else going on in New York, and I can already tell it’s gonna be too much to try and fit in to the season, each episode. There’s a bit of a detached feeling I’m getting from some of the characters for some reason? Idk, this season already just seems less intimate, if that makes sense. All in all, definitely nowhere near as torturous as I expected it to be. I honestly really love the dynamic between all of the kids in the club right now, because they seem to all really like each other. If I’m being honest, they really just ruined Tina for me. I truly just dislike her character and wouldn’t miss her if she was gone. I don’t really feel like she’s adding or taking away anything from the show at this point. It seems like all the other kids from S4 other than Kitty are sort of being ghosted already? Unique, Ryder, Jake, and Marley are just there at the moment, maybe they get more time in the season as it goes on, but for now, they’re basically just there to fill the quota of characters. My overall enjoyment of the episode was a 6.0/10.
2020.04.29 03:16 BadBrohmanceThe College Football Birthday Ranking
The offseason means meaningless rankings, from Way-Too-Early Top 25s to ranking conferences as ska songs. It’s inevitable. So I thought I would offer my own made-up ranking, by trying to figure out which day on the calendar has given us the greatest amount of great players. At first, I was just curious about Heisman winners and which day of the year had the most Heismans. What I ended up with was 8 days tied with 2 Heismans each (including both of Archie Griffin’s for August 21st). After that unsatisfying conclusion, I decided to expand my list to include all of the winners of the Bednarik, Biletnikoff, Bronko Nagurski, Burlsworth, Butkus, Davey O’Brien, Doak Walker, John Mackey, Lou Groza, Maxwell, Outland, Paul Hornung, Jim Thorpe, Ray Guy, Rimington, Walter Camp, and William V. Campbell awards. This gave me 449 players that won 640 awards. While this did give me a winner with 6 players born on July 31st who combined for 8 awards, could I really call it the greatest birthday in college football history when only 5 of the 18 awards had been given out before 1990? No, I could not. In order to represent all 150 years of college football, I decided to include all of the players in the College Football Hall of Fame whose birthday I could find as well. In the end, I had 1314 players that were either in the Hall of Fame or had won a major award born over 358 days to help me rank the greatest college football birthday in history. With over 1300 players listed, you would think that one date would stand out above the rest. You would be mistaken. After days of sorting 1314 players by their date of birth, 3 days were tied with 10 players that had won an award or been inducted in the Hall of Fame. In the end, I decided to rank the birthdays using the following criteria: first by the number of combined Hall of Famers and Award Winners, then by the number of Award winners, and finally by the number of awards won. Before getting to the top birthdays in college football history, I want to give recognition to the 8 days had no players inducted into the hall of fame or winning an award. Those dates are: March 25th, April 28th, June 16th, June 30th, July 19th, October 21st, October 28th, and November 14th. Congratulations to everyone born on those days that were not worthy of the Hall of Fame or a college football award, no one else was worthy, either. With that out of the way, let’s get into the Top 10: September 15th
2006 Jim Thorpe
By having 5 award winners, the three-way tie for first is won by September 15th, even though it had the fewest number of Hall of Famers in the top three with 8 instead of 10. Reds Bagnell finished just shy of adding another award, finishing 3rd in the Heisman voting in 1950. Sports Illustrated also thought Chic Harley and Gene McEver would have won the Heisman in 1916 and 1929, respectively, had the award been given out those years. January 5th
On the strength of Paul Governali’s Maxwell award, January 5th takes the second spot.. Paul was also the first runner-up for the Heisman in 1942, after throwing for 1,442 yards and 19 touchdowns in 9 games that season. March 17th
In third place is March 17th, with no major Division I award winners, with Sammy Baugh coming in 4th in the Heisman Trophy voting in 1936. Johnny Bailey is the only three-time winner of the Harlon Hill Trophy, winning it from 1987-1989. John Outland is the namesake of the Outland Trophy, which is given to the best interior lineman in college football, and he was voted the “Most Popular Man” at the University of Pennsylvania in 1898.

Until I reached 7th place, I thought my ranking system was working. Then October 11th and June 24th decided to have 8 combined players between the award winners and Hall of Famers, with 4 players winning 4 awards each. This meant I had to find another difference between the two dates, and Steve Young provided the answer by being the fifth Hall of Famer to June 24th’s four. So October 11th gets 7th. June 24th
2017 Bronko Nagurski

2020.04.20 03:05 WhatsTheCodeDudeAdagio For Strings – all the existing dance music remixes / covers
Super early incomplete WIP, I'll probably delete or repost this later. This is just for my own reference for now. Currently: 122 versions are accounted for in the table (last time I counted, anyway). What counts together as "sub-versions" of the same track: extended and radio edit; vocal and dub; original and intro mix; "140 BPM Mix" and "145 BPM Mix" when this is the only difference (see NG Rezonance / Peter Berry). What does NOT count as "the same" mix even if the author is the same: versions that have actually different instrumentals, even the ones that are similar and "made from the same base project file". See below: Skip Raiders, Steve Hill vs. Technikal, Future Breeze, Darius & Finlay, Vagrik. Scott Attrill illustrates both approaches: his "Original Mix" and "130 Edit" from 2013 are the same exact track, but rendered at different BPM. His 2015 Mix is very similar, the same project file for sure, but with some minor changes, so it counts as a different version. His 2016 Mix is substantially reworked, so it definitely counts as a different remix. Misc notes:
Yes, explicitly including "Original Mix" is unnecessarily pedantic in many cases, but I do this for consistency in a list where some "Originals" (like Tiesto's version) have plenty of remixes of their own and thus require the Original Mix remark to identify them.
The list is sorted by years, but I didn't bother to sub-sort by the exact date for releases from the same year.
I don't bother with bad amateur Soundcloud stuff like this masterpiece, but tbh I haven't decided yet where exactly the line should be drawn. Some of the listed remixes below are made by little-known artists with few followers, and given away for free / hosted on Soundcloud, but still they are competently produced remixes nevertheless. And the other way around too, some of the stuff that gets released "officially" is very poorly produced.
I also omit the ambient / orchestal recordings and such. This is a list of "dance" remixes. There are definitely some notable downtempo versions, including William Orbit's one first and foremost, but that's a separate rabbit hole on its own. Maybe later someday.
If I find some remixes that were released for the first time in 2001 and 2003, then literally every single year since 1999 saw some new Adagio remixes coming out.
Most newly released remixes per year: 2011 (19), followed by 2010 (14) and 2019 (13).
Agamemnon Project - Adagio For Strings (Armada Tribe Rebirth Remix)
The "Original Mix" doesn't seem to exist; perhaps "Armada Tribe" is the mix name, not an artist - this was first released on a typical compilation of cheap covers, where it's common to have random sub-titles of mixes
Scott Attrill - Adagio For Strings (Original Mix),Scott Attrill - Adagio For Strings ('130' Edit)
Hard dance / Subground
Same track, rendered at 138 and 130 BPM. See also the 2015 and the 2016 versions below.
NG Rezonance = Peter Berry
NG Rezonance - Adagio For Strings (Original Mix),Peter Berry - Adagio (Original Mix)
Same person. NG Rezonance version: 145 BPM, released in 2013. Peter Berry version: 140 BPM, 2015. Same track, rendered at different BPM.
Samuel Barber - Adagio For Strings (Angel Ace 2013 Rework)
Possibly also a "2013 Rework Edit" was given away in 2014, but the Soundcloud upload is gone
Bsharry = Forever 80 = Crazyice = Akoman
Bsharry - Adagio For Strings (Original Mix)and all the other artist names on the left
This single (together with the Club Mix below)keeps getting re-released all the time, under different artist names and on different small labels. The artist clearly produces covers of popular tracks for licensing / syndication. Note: this is different from "Bsharry - Adagio" (without "For Strings"),the latter is a remix of Albinoni's Adagio.
Bsharry = Forever 80 = Crazyice = Akoman
Bsharry - Adagio For Strings (Club Mix)and all the other artist names on the left
Different from the Original Mix. See more notes on the Original Mix above.
Dubstep Hitz - Adagio For Strings (Dubstep Remix)
Released on a typical VA full of covers/remixes of popular tracks, intended for cheap syndication. This obviously isn't a meaningful artist name.
Mark Sixma - Adagio For Strings (Original Mix)
Paul Oakenfold - Barber's Adagio For Strings (Club Mix / Instrumental Mix)
Club Mix has male vocals.
Paul Oakenfold - Barber's Adagio For Strings (2Symmetry Remix)
Trance (progressive) / Progressive house

Paul Oakenfold - Barber's Adagio For Strings (Johnny Yono Remix)

REASON So if we look at the terminator timeline the story is complete in judgement day so we can't move forward but there is one story we can tell, the story that leads to t1 and t2. let's be straight here john Connor**[ definitely played by Christian bale]** should be main character no Arguments, he is the leader of the resistance after all and the plot should revolve around the story of the possibility of undoing judgement day, john already knows that he always had to send back kyle as it was always inevitable for john Connor existence but the idea to stop judgement day would have been the call for action to kick off the story. https://preview.redd.it/cxkh7bktafs41.png?width=780&format=png&auto=webp&s=612a1eeb75f1be1077540ba38c5d57abbb58fac5 this bit is after i watched judgement day to make sure there would be no plot holes with the orders that where given to the t-800, unfortunately the only objective is to stop the t-1000 from killing john connor but it's sarah connor who has the plan . however, timeline wise this wouldn't make that much sense assuming that the t-8000 has ALWAYS been sent back to protect jon connor as a kid [since the t-1000 would have killed and future Jon connor wouldn't be able to send the t-800 ] meaning Sarah Connor would have ALWAYS been free'd and able to stop judgement day. you see the problem here [IN LINEAR TIME ANYWAY]. https://preview.redd.it/j599qu1xafs41.png?width=500&format=png&auto=webp&s=8f01cef72860a5cb8b02b5643f4eafc750c81594 so i don't think it will hurt if we go back to t2 and add a line of dialouge where arnold states his second command after Jon Connor is secured is to stop judgement day [obviously that doesn't happen as young jon connor can just override that easily] anyway with that out the way we need to to remove the time machine they used on Kyle Reece since there would be no story , so lets say as soon as the reece is sent skynet attack and destroy the machine in order to stop them, but the resistance succeed as they have always in the context of Spacetime or 4 dimensional space bla bla bla this could be our opening of jon connor saying goodbye to kyle reece [played by Sebastian stan of course] and fighting off the t-600/800s. https://preview.redd.it/83l3vmmyafs41.png?width=781&format=png&auto=webp&s=907e4a881b6b0092b4bc48426601db663de94b7d at a certain point early in the movie john connor is made aware that time could be changed, not sure how . maybe in this current time line he creates a divergent in which he is able to save a physicist [from now i will call him doctor exposition].anyway upon hearing the news that time travel is possible he would suggest the idea that time can be changed, john would obviously disagree since he would believe time is set in stone due to his whole existence being a paradox other wise, but dr exposition could say some divergence of quantum world theory [basically a time loop/ spiral where their are many times which interact with each other], also i would like to state this is only a theory in irl and i am only using it because the terminator time line literal won't work with out it, and i would make this explain well in the movie so we don't pull a avengers endgame here. 📷 i doubt this part is stated in the IRL theory but Dr exposition could suggest a divergent so strong that it wouldn't have the stream effect where "regardless" of how much you change in your past , your current future is always inevitable ala terminator 3. at this point i would like to add that the materials used for the first time machine where very rare and completely irreplaceable, meaning in prior timelines the t-1000 and t-800 would never be able go back to ...1991? i believe that's when it was set. anyway also in the intro jon was able to pick up the small , rare piece of technology that made time travel possible, incase the use time travel again (ik you would question why would he even take it if he didn't believe in time being altered and since nothing came after him after the first terminator came after his mother , but he could explain it they could travel back in time after that point. so if he leaves it and Skynet rebuild the tm again they could use it like a strategic maneuver like kitty in x men day of future past since the first terminator didn't work ...just something to justify his reason for taking it. anyway the plot could progress into their plan of rebuilding the machine under sky nets nose but they find there hiding spot and send the all new t-1000 after them killing loads of people as it unexpected [yeah we don''t need to TRY to make a cooler terminator like very other movie in the series, well maybe not t3 because this was some lame hollywood middle aged men shit ] https://preview.redd.it/2rfiygt0bfs41.png?width=644&format=png&auto=webp&s=bab5130364f2b30bd09f2deab9b9f84b334ab0e5 at this point some notes would be left behind and we could get a fp view of the t-1000 deciphering the notes and communing with skynet that they finally found where the gizmo is, it's with john Connor and they are planing to make a new time machine with it. skynet sense opportunity and give the t-1000 a new mission...to herd the sheep and a new time machine is built. this leads to the t-1000 or Skynet purposefully leading on the resistance to know they are preparing a new time machine next to a factory and they want the gizmo back. here you will ask why are they not just killing everyone and taking it straight up, skynet being smart would understand if they did that ,they would get a similar result to the first time machine where the resistance flat out fucks their plan by using overwhelming numbers because they resistance would have every to gain by complete destroying skynet hopes of eradicating the man who is responsible for the resistance. if the resistance believe they have a chance of sneaking in and using it for them sleves they wouldn't basically try and completely destroy it. anyway shit happens in the story, also i would like to add a tidbit where dr exposition has learn't the ability to manipulate the [midi-Cholrians] terminators in order to control them [precursor for the t-800 reveal] and during the middle act they aquire a t-600 that dr exposition had prior he reconfigured as a guard he simplified the method so that another gizmo which generates two electromagnetic signal [one to deactivate the terminator and another put you in command] when you plant it nearest to the chip [the head]. from now one lets call the t-600 rusty [it's the name the physicist gave to the robot since he was alone all those years] https://preview.redd.it/2i0dger4bfs41.png?width=425&format=png&auto=webp&s=c013539f554d8383bd7439bc3a4b378f7c43628e anyway the t-1000 mission is to also thin the heard so that it's only john left ,it wouldn't be smart to just guide a whole group there. during the second act they start to gather up information about how Skynet started, this is important later because of the particular date that is chosen. at a point near the beginning of the final act we lose rusty and a whole load of johns crew/small Militia to the T-1000 when the enter the time travel complex with a strong force ready . i haven't mention this yet but john intends to back to 1991 himself for the majority of the movie since he already know the situation with young him and his mother. anyway dr exposition suffers a fatal wound and he passes on the gizmo unsure if it would work on the t-1000, i would like to give him a good send off where he tries to blow up the t-1000 and it ruptures some alkanline pipe and we get a scene like this as a homage to raiders https://preview.redd.it/4p0etx18bfs41.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=a0f2e4cde6f4f5b7a5150f6bdb289b51c43cfbea at this point i should mention jon wife from the og salvation movie played by bryce dallas howard. i want to keep in as she could be a part a interesting story beat as they wonder what going to happen to them if they stop judgement day, jon will suggest that if they go back in time and undo what has been done then they could perhaps be able to exist with out them being erased from history [since time works a bit differently in the terminator franchise than anticipated. https://preview.redd.it/olv07t5abfs41.png?width=600&format=png&auto=webp&s=21d5c7308f61b690954c3df8d79c2fb3a7958282 also in the original jon's wife was some into her Pregnancy but in this i am going to make it so she has just found out her pregnancy after the attack on the first time machine , and she is unsure to keep it or tell Jon since it's a rough world to raise a child, when they are the last two and are waiting for the perfect time to sneak past some t-600 no skin she tells him seeing it might be the last opportunity to. they mange their way in taking out one t-600 and planting c-4 rigs around the machines building so when the go to the past they don't follow but it's the t-1000 and it's here . the t-1000 will attack Jon inguring him but nothing lethal , jon tells his wife to take the gizmo and set the coordinates effectively saying go on with out me it will be kinda dramatic since she could assume he is going to die , but she goes with turning back despite the noise unload his shot gun on it but nothing then he remember the stick given to him by the dr exposition, he uses it but it only seems to mentally incapacitate the t-1000 like if sound one is listen to a very loud noise but it give him valuable time to run a way. but the t-1000 sends a command ... all we see is big human feet step down from a platform ... Jon reaches the control room where his wife has finished rigging up the machine with time set explosives triggers to activate 3 seconds after the it's pressed and is setting the date she locks it in so the date can't be changed. she sees jon but raises her gun at him thinking he is the t-1000 play a game [this will be fore shadowed by a similar moment earlier on where her actual brother [who is the original face of the t-1000 from t2 ] getting killed and the t-1000 pretending to be them until it step on a magnetic bomb. in the movie i am kinda setting a small connection with the t-1000 and jon's wife he tells her something personal no machine would know, like how they meet or some bollocks like that. she realize that it's him and slowly lowers here gun until she looks left of him and shout JON!!... a big meaty arm comes into view and knocks Jon half way across the room, and we get a good look at the t-800 in the flesh...literally. https://preview.redd.it/c18fa88cbfs41.png?width=720&format=png&auto=webp&s=491a4ffda8df8fe13cb8137255e2eed1555cb6d0 anyway a battle commences where john fights the t-800, his wife tries to take him out the the gun , but it jams to her horror she tries to fix it but it's not coming loose, mean while the t-800 has knocked jon down some black steel stairs and has him on the ropes he attempts to use the butt of his ak 47 as a weapon since he has no bullets left, he hits the terminator on the chin 3 times with no reaction but just it slowly steps forward until it catches it , rip it of his hand and wacks him hard. back upstairs we see some ones feat enter the room while in the same shot we can see jon's wife has successful fixed the shot gun but she looks up at the intruder it's the t-1000... he walks while he takes shots from the shot gun, and stabs thought the right lung... she is left bleeding on the floor, the t-1000 approach's station tries the command screen the date is locked into 1991, he activates the platform and light turn on and futuristic mechanism noises can be heard, but before he can go onto it jon's wife is inches from trigger , the t-1000 goes over and crushs it with it's foot he gives on final look at her and turns away while she fade herself fades into death... down below jon will get stabed through the stomach by a long of steel and using the steel bar the terminator lift him of the ground so it's now eye level with him, noticing he has gizmo dr expostion gave him he pull himself towards the terminator via the steel bar that is currently like a train through a mountain. the terminator doesn't stand their tho he runs at the wall pinning jon against it but john is now close enough to use it and it's a success while he hangs their the t-800 reboots... he order it to carry him up to the machine with some the bar still in his stomach to prevent further bleeding. they get up there but he notices his dead wife on the floor , he flops out of the t-800s arms and makes his way to her mourning her. he notices that the machine has already been activated, now knowing the t-1000 has gone through, he looks down at his wound and ask what his condition and if he can get into the machine to the t-800, he says critical unlikely to survive teleportation he sees the destoryed trigger knowing it doesn't there is no longer a delay detention timer, he screams shit shit shit.... he know one person has to stay behind a trigger it. we here the noises of approaching machines he slowly gets up and give the command. "you go through the machine, you go back , you find Jon Connor, and you protect him...that's a command" the terminator replies affirmative " after jon is secure and only when jon is secure you find cyberdyne and you end skynet before it happens". the terminator gets in place and jon after finish connecting a new trigger is now at the controlls, he hesistants for a moment and looks at the terminator for one last time, and then press the button and machine starts... flashing blue lights and creating a wind as jon looks on and then silence.... is jon holding his wife in his arms aswell as holding the trigger, as we see the first t-800 turn the corner and aim at jon he presses the trigger. the last shots are the complex becoming a field of rubble as the dust settles we go to black... and that was my terminator salvation

2020.03.06 03:49 cake__batterIs it normal that I get annoyed my weeb friends just because they talk about anime?
So personally, I do into anime occasionally, usually only if it's good or if someone tells me to watch it. I'm not the type that has "waifus" or like any sort of attraction to anime characters, but some of my online friends are, and sometimes it pisses me off. They'll talk and talk about how good My Hero Academy is and how hot all of the boys are, and how much they wanna bone the girls. It just gets on my nerves, and I'm not sure why. They talk about how they're in love with Light Yagami from Death Note or Sebastian from Black Butler, and at a certain point it just gets annoying how much of their personality revolves around anime. I just can't talk to anyone on their server without all of the My Hero Academy stans coming in and talking about how hot Deku or Kirishima is, and it just sometimes pisses me off how that happens. I can understand the young people on the server doing it, I get it, they're younger than me, it happens. But even my buddy on there, he's like 17, practically the same age as me, and he talks about how much he loves anime yanderes and wants an irl yandere girlfriend. Goes on to say his waifus are yandere girls and on and on and it just makes me kinda pissy about it. The even older guys, like 21-21 talk about it, and there is where I draw the line. I get really mad that they can't have a normal conversation about anime without it devolving into disturbing obsession with the characters, wanting to date them in real life, and I just get irrationally angry and have to take a break from discord for a good half hour or so to calm down. Am I normal for thinking this way?

Total average score
Total average controversy score
If a song has a higher score than 6.568 - congrats, it's considered great (or simply just above average). If a song has a higher controversy score than 2.095, then people had really mixed feelings about it. Anything below can be considered as songs that people somewhat managed to agree on.
The average score was 0.243 higher than the last time, which means people definitely liked the season three soundtrack a lot better than the second and way more than the first.
The controversy score had lowered by 0.140 points and is so far at its lowest, meaning the voters agree on the scores more than ever!
The song with the most 11's was Paradise By The Dashboard Light with fifteen 11's. A record by a milestone! The last record was three 11's, which I Feel Pretty/Unpretty, River Deep, Mountain High and Don't Stop Believin' all received.
In second place for most 11's is Rumor Has It/Someone Like You with ten 11's, which is still miles more than three.
Other songs who received 11's were: I'm The Greatest Star, Something's Coming, Hit Me With Your Best Shot/One Way or Another, Red Solo Cup, ABC, We Are Young, Smooth Criminal, Cough Syrup, Fly/I Believe I Can Fly, Hungry Like The Wolf/Rio, How Will I Know, Not The Boy Next Door, Shake It Out, Love You Like A Love Song, Because You Loved Me, Tongue Tied and Roots Before Branches.
The song with most 0's was Dinosaur with four 0's. Justice for Brittany Pierce.
Only one song this time around were both very hated and very loved - I'm The Greatest Star received both one 11 and one 0.
Songs featuring Santana as lead once again hit the big times, with Rumor Has It, Smooth Criminal and SurvivoI Will Survive all being in top 5.
The Troubletones are also extremely popular with our voters - all of their songs made it into the top 30 (or top 29)!
CONTROVERSY ALERT! Once again, Brittany takes the crown for most controversial song, Dinosaur, with a 2.999 controversy score, which is incredibly high considering the overall controversy score is closer to 2 blank and is at its lowest it's ever been. As mentioned earlier, it was the song that received most 0's, but according to the results, the scores were pretty mixed and it even received a handful of 10's! I guess there are just some songs people can never agree on...

# of solos
Songs that deserved at least one 11 and got none: Despite being number 5, SurvivoI Will Survive didn't get a single 11. Isn't that crazy?
I'm not actively encouraging people to score Blaine's solos higher, but for real, Wanna Be Startin' Something is a whole ass bop and deserved both a higher spot and an 11. But alas...
I Will Always Love You, although getting that #10 spot, was also deprived of an 11. I'm speechless.
Not related to this category, but I just wanted to add that Cough Syrup only got 2 11's?? Where are you Blaine stans at?? Truly disappointing results.
Songs that deserved better: Okay, listen... La Isla Bonita... what do you guys have against this bop. #61? What? Saving All My Love For You, aka one of the best duets Quinn has ever partaken in, if not the best? At #73???? Do you guys not hear how amazing her and Joe's voice go together?
Also, every. disco. song. deserved. better. Disco is an amazing genre of music and it's a reason why it's influencing some of the most popular songs at the moment. IT'S COMING BACK AND YOU CAN'T STOP IT.
I can't believe Scream almost didn't make top 100, I'm honestly... so... whatever.
Let Me Love You aka Artie's best solo didn't make top 100 and yeah, the guy's an asshole but HE CAN SANG.
Go take that rightful crown! The Troubletones were definitely superior this season and they deserved every single spot they got (except Candyman who could've been lower in favor of other songs tbh, but other than that, well deserved).
Obviously, the song with most 11's got the #1 spot, the iconic and legendary Paradise By The Dashboard Light. It's their Bohemian Rhapsody and yes, I said it!!!
WHY? Hit Me With Your Best Shot isn't... that great... especially not great enough for a #14 spot. But it's a good mash-up? But not the greatest song?
Here's To Us and Fly/I Believe I Can Fly belongs to their most disappointing competition set to date and it definitely was not worthy of a top 40 spot, lol
Constant Craving above It's Not Right But It's Okay? And Spotlight? Really?
Well, hello there. Quinn Fabray's solos above Rachel Berry's? Granted, she only had one and Rachel had nine, so it's unfair but still. That one solo getting her to the big leagues along with Blaine and Mercedes. Well done, girlie!
2020.02.18 01:12 jonisantuchoOscars 2021: An inside look (like, really inside) to 50 possible contenders in the next awards race
Another Oscar ceremony happened, and we got our fair share of joy and disappointment. After Parasite surprised the world and took Best Picture, it seems like the game has changed for the awards race, now that non-English speaking films can actually fight and be recognized as well as classics as… Green Book. The Oscar race is still full of pain and glory, and even though the year has barely started, we have a bunch of movies that are fighting for air. And here’s 50 of them. Yes, I had some free time in my hands and this is a cool hobby, so I took the liberty to introduce most of the movies that will have Film Twitter entertained for the following 12 months. I say most, because there are always contenders who come out of nowhere later in the year, so this is the starter set. Here we go. -Annette: Since Parasite’s road to the Oscars started at Cannes, it seems fair to talk about a movie that is circling a premiere in the world stage that is set in France. After delivering weird, indie classics like Mauvais Sang and Holy Motors (yes, the kind of movies that make you seem like a snob when you recommend them to people), Leos Carax is making his first movie spoken in the English language… and it has a musical screenplay written by the cult rock duo of Sparks. Recently robbed Adam Driver and previous Oscar winner Marion Cotillard sing in this tale of a stand-up comedian and a famous soprano singer who rise and fall in Los Angeles while their daughter is born with a special gift. It seems like a wild bet, but we already know that Carax is a master with musical moments, so this is one of the most intriguing question marks of the year. -Ammonite: It’s time to talk narratives. On the one hand, we have Kate Winslet, a known name who hasn’t been very successful in the Oscar race since her Oscar win for The Reader over a decade ago (with the exception being her supporting performance in Steve Jobs, where she had a weird accent). On the other, we have Saoirse Ronan, a star on the rise who keeps collecting Oscar nominations, with 4 nods at the age of 25, including her fresh Best Actress loss for Little Women. What happens if we put them together in a drama set in the coasts of England during the 19th century where both of them fall for each other? That’s gonna be a winning formula if writedirector Francis Lee (who tackled queer romance in his acclaimed debut God’s Own Country) nails the Mary Anning story, and Neon (the distribution company founded three years ago that took Parasite to victory) is betting on it. -Benedetta: We know the Paul Verhoeven story. After isolating himself from Hollywood for over a decade, he took Isabelle Huppert to an Oscar nominated performance with the controversial, sexy, dark and funny thriller Elle. Now, he’s back with another story that perks up the ears, because now he’s covering the life of Benedetta Carlini, a 17th-century lesbian nun who had religious and erotic visions. If you know Paul, you already can tell that this fits into his brand of horniness, and a possible Cannes premiere could tell us if this has something to carry itself to Oscar night. -Blonde: With a short but impactful directorial credits list that takes us from Chopper, to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford to Killing Them Softly, Andrew Dominik is back with a film about Marilyn Monroe, a woman who has transcended the ideas of fame and stardom, in ways that are glamorous and nightmarish at the same time. After failing to launch with Naomi Watts or Jessica Chastain,the rising Ana de Armas takes the lead in the retelling of Monroe’s troubled life based on Joyce Carol Oates’ novel, which is said to be covered in the screenplay as somewhat of a horror movie. We don’t know what that means yet, but Netflix is gonna push hard for this one, especially considering how the Academy loves throwing awards to stars playing previous stars, and that also can possibly include co-stars Bobby Cannavale and Adrien Brody. -Breaking News in Yuba County: While he hasn’t gone back to the heights of his success achieved by the box office and award success of The Help (a movie that did not age well), Tate Taylor is still enjoying himself economically due to recent thrillers like The Girl on the Train and Ma. For his next movie, he’s made a dramedy that once again reunites him with Oscar winner Allison Janney, where she plays a woman who has to keep appearances and a hidden body when she catches her husband cheating on her, and then he dies of a heart attack. With a cast that also includes Mila Kunis, Regina Hall, Awkwafina, Samira Wiley, Wanda Sykes, Jimmi Simpson and Ellen Barkin, this could be a buzzy title later this year. -C’mon C’mon: You may love or hate whatever Joaquin Phoenix did in Joker, but you can’t deny the benefit of playing the Crown Prince of Crime in an Oscar-winning performance. The blank check that you share with indie directors afterwards. Now that Joaquin’s cultural cachet is on the rise, Mike Mills gets to benefit with this drama that stars Phoenix and Gaby Hoffmann, with him playing an artist left to take care of his precocious young nephew as they forge an unexpected bond over a cross country trip. We only have to wonder if A24 will do better with this movie’s Oscar chances compared to 20th Century Women. -Cherry: After killing half the universe and bringing them back with the highest grossing movie of all time, where do you go? For Joe and Anthony Russo, the answer is “away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe”. The Russo brothers are trying to distance themselves and prove that they have a voice without Kevin Feige behind them, with a crime drama that’s also different than their days when they directed You, Me and Dupree or episodes of Arrested Development and Community. To help them in the journey, they took Tom Holland (who also needs to distance himself from Spider-Man, lest he ends up stuck to the character in the audience’s eyes) to star in a crime drama based on former Army medic Nico Walker’s memoir about his days after Iraq, where the PTSD and an opioid addiction led him to start robbing banks. -Da 5 Bloods: After bouncing back from a slump with the critical and commercial success of BlackKklansman, Spike Lee is cashing a Netflix check to tell the tale of four African American veterans who return to Vietnam to search for their fallen leader and some treasure. With a cast that includes Delroy Lindo, Clarke Peters, Isiah Whitlock Jr, Paul Walter Hauser and Chadwick Boseman, this sounds like an interesting combo, although we still should remember the last time that Spike tried his hand at a war movie, with the dull Miracle at St. Anna. -Dune: If you are on Reddit, you probably know about the new film by movies’ new Messiah, Denis Villeneuve. While the epic sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert is getting a new chance in the multiplexes after that David Lynch movie that was forgotten by many, some are hoping that this will be the beginning of a new franchise (as seen by the release date of December 18, taking the spot of the usual Star Wars opening), and a return to the whole “remember when stuff like Return of the King or Fury Road were nominated for Best Picture?” question. Timothee Chalamet will be riding a lot of hope, and sandworm. -Everybody’s Talking About Jamie: As you start to see, there are several musicals that are gonna be fighting for attention over the next year, and Annette was the first one. Now, we also have this adaptation of the hit West End production, that centers around a gay British teenager who dreams of becoming a drag queen and get his family and schoolmates to accept his sexuality. With a cast that mixes young unknowns, familiar Brits (Sharon Horgan, Sarah Lancashire and my boy Ralph Ineson) and the previously nominated legend that is Richard E. Grant (who is playing a former drag queen named Loco Chanelle), the creative team of the stage musical will jump to the big screen with the help of Fox Searchlight (sorry, just Searchlight), who has clear Oscar hopes with a release date right in the middle of awards heat, on October 23. -Hillbilly Elegy: Even though the Parasite victory gave many people hope for a new Academy that stops recognizing stuff like previous winner Green Book… let’s be honest, the Academy will still look for movies like Green Book. This year, many people are turning their eyes towards Ron Howard’ adaptation of J.D. Vance’s memoir about his low income life in a poor rural community in Ohio, filled with drugs, violence and verbal abuse. If this sounds like white trash porn, it doesn’t help to know that Glenn Close, who has become the biggest living Oscar bridesmaid with seven nominations, will play a character called Mamaw. And if that sounds trashy, then you have to know that Amy Adams, who follows Glenn with six nominations, is playing her drug-addicted, careless daughter. I don’t want to call this “Oscar bait”, but it sure is tempting. -I’m Thinking of Ending Things: After his stopmotion existential dramedy Anomalisa got him a Best Animated Feature nomination at the Oscars but at the same time bombed at the box office, Charlie Kaufman is getting the Netflix check. This time, he’s adapting the dark novel by Iain Reid, about a woman (Jessie Buckley, who is on the rise and took over the role after Brie Larson had to pass) who is taken by her boyfriend (Jesse Plemons) to meet his parents (Toni Collette and David Thewlis), in a trip that takes a turn for the worse. If Kaufman can deliver with this one, it will be a big contender. -In the Heights: Yes, more musicals! This time, it’s time to talk about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first Tony-winning musical, that was overshadowed because of his other small play about some treasury secretary. Now, his Broadway ensemble tale about life in a neighborhood in Washington Heights is jumping to the movie screen with Jon Chu at the helm, following the success of Crazy Rich Asians. This Latino tale mixes up-and-comers like Anthony Ramos (who comes straight from Hamilton and playing Lady Gaga’s friend in A Star is Born), names like Corey Hawkins and Jimmy Smits (who is pro bits), and Olga Merediz, who starred in the Broadway show as Abuela Claudia and who could be the early frontrunner for Best Supporting Actress, if Chu allows her to shine like she did onstage. -Jesus Was My Homeboy: When looking at up-and-coming Black actors right now in Hollywood, two of the top names are Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield, who already appeared in the same movie in Get Out, which earned Kaluuya a Best Actor nomination. This time, they share the screen in Shaka King’s retelling of the story of Fred Hampton (Kaluuya), an activist and Black Panther leader… as well as the story of William O’Neal (Stanfield), the FBI agent sent by J. Edgar Hoover to infiltrate the party and arrest him. With the backing of Warner Bros, this will attempt to make an impact with a clash of actors that will have to fight with an August release date, not the ideal time to release an awards movie. -King Richard: Starting with Suicide Squad, Will Smith has been trying to prove that he’s back and better than ever. Some attempts to get back to the top of the A-list (Aladdin, Bad Boys For Life) have worked, while others (Gemini Man, Spies in Disguise)... have not. But Will is still going, and now he’s going for his next prestige play as he plays Richard Williams, the coach and father of the tennis legends Venus and Serena, who pushed them to their full potential. While it’s weird that the father of the Williams sisters is getting a movie before them, it does sound like a meaty role for Smith, who has experience with Oscar notices with sports biopics because of what he did with Michael Mann in Ali. Let’s hope director Reinaldo Marcus Green can take him there too. -Last Night in Soho: Every year, one or two directors who have a cool reputation end up in the Dolby Theatre, and 2020 could be the year of Edgar Wright. After delivering his first big box office hit with Baby Driver, the Brit is going back to London to tell a story in the realm of psychological horror, which has been supposedly inspired by classics like Don’t Look Now and Repulsion. With a premise that supposedly involves time travel and a cast that includes Anya-Taylor Joy, Thomasin McKenzie, Matt Smith and Diana Rigg, Wright (who also co-wrote this with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who was just nominated for Best Original Screenplay for her work in 1917) is making a big swing. -Let Them All Talk: Every year there’s more new streaming services, and that also means that there’s new players in the Oscar game. To secure subscribers to the new service, HBO Max has secured the rights to the next Steven Soderbergh movie, a comedy that stars Meryl Streep as a celebrated author that takes her friends (Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest) and her nephew (Lucas Hedges, again) in a journey to find fun and come to terms with the past. The last time that Soderbergh and Streep worked together, the end result was the very disappointing The Laundromat. Let’s hope that this time everything works out. -Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom: Now that Netflix got the deal to adapt August Wilson’s acclaimed plays with Denzel Washington’s production company, the next jump from the stage to the screen is a meaty one. Viola Davis is playing blues singer Ma Rainey in this tale of a heated recording session with her bandmates, her agent and her producer in 1927, with a cast that also includes Chadwick Boseman, Glynn Turman and Colman Domingo. The Tony nominated play talked about race, art and the intersection of the two, and it’s gonna be explosive to see that unfold on screen, even if director George C. Wolfe’s previous filmography isn’t very encouraging. -Macbeth: In a shocking development, the Coen brothers are no more. Well, just this time. For the first time in his career, Joel Coen is making a movie without Ethan, and it’s a Shakespeare adaptation. Denzel Washington is playing the man who wants to be king of Scotland, and Frances McDormand is playing his Lady Macbeth. While this just started filming and it will be a race to finish it in time for competition in the awards race, the potential is there, and this project has everybody’s attention. -Mank: After scoring 24 Oscar nominations and only winning 2 awards last Sunday, Netflix has to wonder what else must they do to get in the club that awards them. They tried with Cuarón, they tried with Scorsese, they tried with Baumbach, they tried with two Popes, and they still feel a barrier. Now, the big gamble for awards by the streamer in 2020 comes to us in the hands of David Fincher, who is basically their friend after the rest of Hollywood denied him (Disney dropped his 20,000 Leagues adaptation, HBO denied the US remake of Utopia, and Paramount drove World War Z 2 away from him). In his first movie since 2014’s Gone Girl, David will go black and white to tackle a script by his late father about the making of the classic of classics, Citizen Kane, with previous Oscar winner Gary Oldman playing the lead role of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz. Will the Academy fall for the ultimate “power of da moviesshhh” story? -Minari: Sundance can be hit or miss with the breakout films that try to make it to the Oscars. However, you can’t deny the waves made by A24 when they premiered Lee Isaac Chung’s new drama there, ending up winning the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award in the US Dramatic Competition. If Parasite endeared Academy voters to Korean families, Steven Yeun hopes that the same thing happens with this story, where he plays a father in the ‘80s who suddenly decides to move his family to Arkansas to start a farm. Even though the reviews have been great, we must also remember that last year, A24 had in their hands The Farewell, another Sundance hit about an Asian family that ended up with no Oscar nominations. Let’s hope that this time, the Plan B influence (remember, that’s Brad Pitt’s production company, of Moonlight and 12 Years a Slave fame) makes a difference. -Next Goal Wins: It’s a good time to be Taika Waititi. Why? Taika Waititi can do what he wants. He can direct a Thor movie, he can win an Oscar for writing a comedy set in WW2 about a Third Reich boy who has an Imaginary Hitler friend, or he can pop up in The Mandalorian as a droid. Taika keeps winning, and he wants more. Between his press tour for Jojo Rabbit and his return to the MCU, he quickly shot an adaptation of a great documentary about the disgraced national team of American Samoa, one of the worst football teams known to man, as they try to make the cut for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Everybody loves a good sports comedy, and Searchlight bets that we’ll enjoy this story led by Michael Fassbender as the new (and Dutch-American) coach in town who tries to shape the team for victory. -News of the World: Seven years after their solid collaboration in Captain Phillips, Paul Greengrass and Tom Hanks reunite for more awards love in what seems to be Universal’s main attraction for the Oscars. This time, Hanks stars in a Western drama based on Paulette Jiles’ novel where he plays a traveling newsreader in the aftermath of the American Civil War who is tasked with reuniting an orphaned girl with her living relatives. With a Christmas release date, Universal is betting big in getting the same nomination boost that 1917 is enjoying right now, and the formula is promising. -Nightmare Alley: Following his Best Picture and Best Director wins for The Shape of Water, everybody in Hollywood wondered what would Guillermo del Toro do next. Well, as Del Toro often does, a little bit of everything and nothing. Some projects moved (as his produced Pinocchio movie on Netflix, or his Death Stranding likeness cameo), others stalled and die (like his proposed Fantastic Voyage remake). But now he’s rolling on his next project, a new adaptation of the William Lindsay Gresham novel that already was a Tyrone Power film in 1947. This noir tale tells the story of a con man (Bradley Cooper) who teams up with a psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) to trick people and win money, and how things get out of control. With a cast that also includes Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, Rooney Mara and more, this could play well if it hits the right tone. -Nomadland: There’s breakout years, and then there’s the amazing potential of Chloe Zhao’s 2020. On the one hand, after making Hollywood notice her skill with the gripping story of The Rider, she got the keys to the MCU kingdom to direct the next potential franchise of Kevin Feige, The Eternals. And just in case, she also has in her sleeve this indie drama that she wrote and directed beforehand, with two-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand playing a woman who, after losing everything in the Great Recession, embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad. If Chloe nails these two films, it could be the one-two punch of the decade. -One Night in Miami: Regina King is living her best life. Following her Oscar win for Best Supporting Actress in If Beale Street Could Talk and the success that came with her lead role in the Watchmen show on HBO, the actress is jumping to a new challenge: directing movies. For her big screen debut, she’s adapting Kemp Powers’ play that dramatizes a real meeting on February 25, 1964, between Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Sam Cooke and Jim Brown. -Over the Moon: After earning praise and Oscar nominations with I Lost My Body and Klaus, Netflix will keep its bet on animated movies with a film directed by the legendary Glen Keane. Who? A classic Disney animator responsible for the design of characters like Ariel, the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Tarzan and more](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jRkx2PNVr8), and who recently won an Oscar for Best Animated Short for Dear Basketball, which he co-directed with the late Kobe Bryant. Now, he brings us a musical adventure centered around a Chinese girl who builds a rocket ship and blasts off to the Moon in hopes of meeting a legendary Moon Goddess. -Passing: It’s always interesting when an actor jumps behind the camera, and Rebecca Hall’s case is no exception. For her directorial debut, Hall chose to adapt Nella Larsen’s acclaimed novel set in Harlem in the 1920s, about two mixed race childhood friends (Ruth Negga and Tessa Thompson) who reunite in adulthood and become obsessed with one another's lives. With a premise that explores tough questions about race and sexuality, it looks like a tricky challenge for a first timer, but it would be more impressive if Hall manages to rise over the challenge. -Prisoner 760: An interesting part of following the awards circuit is looking at when it's appropriate to talk about touchy subjects in recent history. I’m saying that because this next movie tells the real life tale of Mohamedou Ould Slahi (Tahar Rahim), a man who, despite not being charged or having a set trial, is held in custody at Guantanamo Bay, and turns towards a pair of lawyers (Jodie Foster and Shailene Woodley) to aid him. Based on the famous journal that the man wrote while he was being detained, the movie (that also counts with Benedict Cumberbatch) is directed by Kevin Macdonald who, a long time ago, helped Forest Whitaker win Best Actor for The Last King of Scotland. Could he get back in the race after almost 15 years of movies like State of Play? -Raya and the Last Dragon: This year, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ bet for the Oscars is a fantasy tale set in a mysterious realm called Kumandra, where a warrior named Raya searches for the last dragon in the world. And that dragon has the voice of Awkwafina. Even though they missed out last Oscars when Frozen II got the cold shoulder by the Academy in Best Animated Feature, this premise looks interesting enough to merit a chance. One more thing: between last year’s Abominable, Over the Moon and this movie, there’s a clear connection of animated movies trying to appeal to Chinese sensibilities (and that sweet box office). -Rebecca: It’s wild to think that the only time that Alfred Hitchcock made a film that won the Oscar for Best Picture was with 1940’s adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s psychological thriller novel, more muted and conventional than his more known classics. Now, Ben Wheatley and Netflix are giving the Gothic story a new spin, with Lily James playing the newly married young woman who finds herself battling the shadow of her husband's (Armie Hammer) dead first wife, the mysterious Rebecca. The story is a classic, and we have to see how much weird Wheatley stuff is in the mix. -Red, White and Water: Between 2011 and 2014, Jennifer Lawrence was everywhere and people loved it. She was America’s sweetheart, the Oscar winner, Katniss Everdeen. But then, everything kinda fell. Those X-Men movies got worse and she looked tired of being in them, her anecdotes got less charming and more pandering to some, she took respectable risks that didn’t pay off with Red Sparrow and Mother!, and some people didn’t like that she said that it wasn’t nice to share private photos of her online. Now, she looks to get back to the Oscar race with a small project funded by A24 and directed by Lila Neugebauer in her film debut, about a soldier who comes back to the US after suffering a traumatic brain injury in Afghanistan. Also, Brian Tyree Henry is in this, and it would be amazing if he got nominated for something. -Respect: You know what’s a surefire way to get Academy voters’ attention? Play a real singer! Rami Malek took a win last year for playing Freddie Mercury, Renee Zellweger just won the gold after portraying Judy Garland, and now Jennifer Hudson wants more Oscar love. Almost 15 years after taking Best Supporting Actress for her role in Dreamgirls, Hudson will try to get more by playing soul legend Aretha Franklin, in a biopic directed by first timer Liesl Tommy that practically screams “give me the gold”. How am I so sure? Well, see the teaser that they released in December (for a movie that opens in October), and tell me. It will work out better for Hudson than Cats, that’s for sure. -Soul: Unless they really disappoint (I’m looking at you, The Good Dinosaur, Cars 2 and Cars 3), you can’t have the Oscars without inviting Pixar to the party. This year, they have two projects in the hopes of success. While in a few weeks we’ll see what happens with the fantasy family road trip of Onward, the studio’s biggest bet of the year clearly is the next existential animation written and directed by Pete Docter, who brought Oscar gold to his home with Up and Inside Out. The movie, which centers on a teacher (voice of Jamie Foxx) who dreams of becoming a jazz musician and, just as he’s about to get his big break, ends up getting into an accident that separates his soul from his body, had a promising first trailer, and it also promises a score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, as well as new songs by Jon Batiste. The only downside so far for the marketing was the fact that the trailer reveal led people to notice a suspicious trend involving black characters when they lead an animated movie. -Tenet: When Leonardo DiCaprio finally touched his Academy Award, an alarm went off in the mind of a portion of Internet users, who have made their next crusade to give themselves to the cause of getting Christopher Nolan some Oscar love. And his next blank check, an action thriller involving espionage and time travel, could pull off the same intersection of popcorn and prestige that made Inception both a box office hit and a critically acclaimed Oscar nominee. It helps to have a cast of impressive names like John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson, as well as a crew that includes Ludwig Goransson and Hoyte van Hoytema. In other words, if this becomes a hit, this could go for a huge number of nominations. -The Devil All the Time: As you may have noticed by now, Netflix is leading the charge in possible Oscar projects. Another buzzy movie that comes from them is the new psychological thriller by Antonio Campos, a filmmaker known for delivering small and intimate but yet intense and terrifying dramas like Simon Killer and Christine. Using the novel by Donald Ray Pollock, Campos will follow non-linearly a cast of characters in Ohio between the end of World War II and the beginning of the Vietnam War, with the help of an interesting cast that includes Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Eliza Scanlen, Bill Skarsgard, Jason Clarke and Riley Keough. -The Eyes of Tammy Faye: After being known as a sketch comedy goofball because of The State, Wet Hot American Summer and Stella, Michael Showalter reinvented himself as a director of small and human dramedies like Hello, My Name is Doris and The Big Sick. For his next project, he’s gonna mix a little bit of both worlds, because he has before him the story of the televangelists Tammy Faye Bakker (Jessica Chastain, who has been really trying to recapture her early ‘10 awards run to no avail) and Jim Bakker (Andrew Garfield, who was previously nominated for Hacksaw Ridge, instead of Silence, because why). With a real life tale that involves Christian theme parks, fraud and conspiracies, this is the kind of loud small movie that Searchlight loves to parade around, especially as an actors showcase (Jojo Rabbit being the most recent example). The first image looks terrifying, by the way. -The Father: It’s weird to be in the middle of February and say that there’s already a frontrunner for the Best Actor race at the next Oscars. After its premiere in Sundance a couple of weeks ago, every prognosticator pointed in the direction of Anthony Hopkins (recently nominated for Best Supporting Actor in The Two Popes), who delivers a harrowing portrayal of an old man grappling with his age as he develops dementia, causing pain to his beleaguered daughter (recent winner Olivia Colman, who also got praised). With reviews calling it a British answer to Amour (in other words: it’s a hard watch), Florian Zeller’s adaptation of his acclaimed play not only benefits from having Hopkins and Colman together as a selling point, because it was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics, a distributor with experience in getting Academy voters to watch adult movies with heavy themes. If you don’t believe me, watch how they got Julianne Moore a win for Still Alice, as well as recent nominations for Isabelle Huppert for Elle, Glenn Close for The Wife, and Antonio Banderas for Pain and Glory. They know the game, and they are going to hit hard for Hopkins and Colman. -The French Dispatch:If you saw the trailer, we don’t need to dwell too much on the reasons. On the one hand, we have the style of Wes Anderson, a filmmaker who has become a name in both the critics circle and the casual viewer, with his last two movies (The Grand Budapest Hotel and Isle of Dogs) earning several Oscar nominations, including Best Picture for the one with Gustave H. Then, we have a long cast that goes from the director’s regulars like Bill Murray to new stars like Timothee Chalamet, and also includes people like Benicio del Toro. The only thing that could endanger the Oscar chances for this is that the story, an anthology set around a period comedy with an European riff on The New Yorker, will alienate the average Academy member. -The Humans: There’s the prestige of a play, and then there’s the prestige of a Tony-winning play. Playwright Stephen Karam now gets to jump to the director’s chair to take his acclaimed 2016 one-act story to the big screen, and A24 is cutting the check. Telling the story of a family that gets together on Thanksgiving to commiserate about life, this adaptation will be led by original performer Jayne Houdyshell (who also won a Tony for her stage performance), who’ll be surrounded by Richard Jenkins, Beanie Feldstein, Amy Schumer, Steven Yeun and June Squibb. If it avoids getting too claustrophobic or stagey for the cinema, it will be a good contender. -The Last Duel: Always speedy, Ridley Scott is working on his next possible trip to the Oscars. This time, it’s the telling of a true story in 14th-century France, where a knight (Matt Damon) accuses his former friend (Adam Driver) of raping his wife (Jodie Comer), with the verdict being determined by the titular duel. It’s a juicy story, but there was some concern when it seemed that the script was only being written by Damon and Ben Affleck (who’ll also appear in the film). A rape story written by them after the Weinstein revelations… not the best look. But then, it was revealed that they were writing the screenplay with indie figure Nicole Holofcener, who last year was nominated for an Oscar for her script for Can You Ever Forgive Me? Let’s hope that the story is told in a gripping but not exploitative way, and that it doesn’t reduce the role of Comer (who deserves more than some of the movie roles that she’s getting after Killing Eve) to a Hollywood stereotype. -The Power of the Dog: We have to talk about the queen of the indie world, we have to talk about Jane Campion. More than a decade after her last movie, Bright Star, the Oscar and Palme d’Or winner for The Piano returns with a non-TV project (see Top of the Lake, people) thanks to Netflix, with a period drama centered around a family dispute between a pair of wealthy brothers in Montana, Phil (Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Burbank (Jesse Plemons), after the latter one marries a local widow (Kirsten Dunst). According to the synopsis, “a shocked and angry Phil wages a sadistic, relentless war to destroy her entirely using her effeminate son Peter as a pawn”. Can’t wait to see what that means. -The Prom: Remember the Ryan Murphy blank check deal with Netflix that I mentioned earlier? Well, another of the projects in the first batch of announcements for the deal is a musical that he’ll direct, adapting the Tony-nominated show about a group of Broadway losers (now played by the one and only Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells and, uh, James Corden, for some reason) who try to find a viral story to get back in the spotlight, and end up going to a town in Indiana to help a lesbian high school student who has been banned from bringing her girlfriend to the prom. The show has been considered a fun and heartwarming tale of acceptance, so the movie could be an easy pick for an average Academy voter who doesn’t look too hard (and you know that the Golden Globes will nominate the shirt out of this). It’s funny how this comes out the same year than Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, and then it’s not funny realizing that Film Twitter will pit the two movies against each other. -The Trial of the Chicago 7: After getting a taste of the director’s taste with Molly’s Game, Aaron Sorkin wants more. For his second movie, he’s tackling one of his specialties: a courtroom drama. And this one is a period movie centered around the trial on countercultural activists in the late ‘60s, which immediately attracts a campaign of how “important” this movie is today’s culture. To add the final blow, we have a cast that includes Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jeremy Strong, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Frank Langella, William Hurt, Michael Keaton and Mark Rylance. If Sorkin can contain himself from going over the top (and with that cast, it would be so easy to surrender to bouts of screaming and winding speeches), this could be one of the top contenders. -Those Who Wish Me Dead: Having made a good splash in the directorial waters with Wind River, Taylor Sheridan (also known for writing the Sicario movies, the Oscar-nominated Hell or High Water or that Yellowstone show that your uncle raves about on Facebook) returns with yet another modern Western. For this thriller based on the Michael Koryta novel, Angelina Jolie stars as a survival expert in the Montana wilderness who is tasked with protecting a teenager who witnessed a murder, while assassins are pursuing him and a wildfire grows closer. -Untitled David O. Russell Project: Following the mop epic Joy, that came and went in theaters but still netted a Best Actress nomination for Jennifer Lawrence, the angriest director in Hollywood took a bit of a break (it didn’t help that he tried to do a really expensive show with Amazon starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore that fell apart when the Weinstein exposes sank everything). Now, he’s quickly putting together his return to the days of Oscar love that came with stuff like The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, with a new movie that is set to star Christian Bale, Margot Robbie and Michael B. Jordan. Even though we don’t know many details (some people are saying the movie is called Amsterdam) except for the fact the movie hasn’t started shooting yet, David is a quick guy, so he’ll get it ready for the fall festival circuit. If there’s one thing that David O. Russell knows (apart from avoid getting cancelled for abusing people like Lily Tomlin, Amy Adams and his niece), it’s to make loud actor showcases. -Untitled Nora Fingscheidt Project: When Bird Box became one of the biggest hits on Netflix history, the streamer decided to keep itself in the Sandra Bullock business. Sandy’s next project for Ted Sarandos is a drama where she plays a woman who is released from prison after serving time for a violent crime, and re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past. To get redemption, she searches her younger sister she was forced to leave behind. With the direction of Fingscheidt, who comes from an acclaimed directorial debut with Systemsprenger (Germany’s submission to the last Academy Awards), and a cast that also includes Viola Davis, Vincent D’Onofrio and Jon Bernthal, this will also hopefully try its luck later this year. -Untitled Paul Thomas Anderson Project: We don’t know if this movie will be ready for the end of the year (although last time, he managed to sneak Phantom Thread under the buzzer and earn several Oscar nominations, including Best Picture), but PTA is apparently gonna start to shoot it soon, with the backing of Focus Features. After several movies with prestige locations and intricate production design, Film Twitter’s Holy Spirit will go back to the San Fernando Valley in the 1970s, to tell the story of a high school student who is also a successful child actor. -Stillwater: Tom McCarthy’s recent career is certainly puzzling. After delivering the weird lows of The Cobbler, he bounced back with the Best Picture winner that was Spotlight. And following that, he… helped produce the 13 Reasons Why series. And following that… he made Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, a Disney+ original movie. Now, he’s back to the award race with a drama starring Matt Damon, who plays a father who rushes from Oklahoma to France to help his daughter (Abigail Breslin), who is in prison after being suspected for a murder she claims she didn’t commit. -West Side Story: To close things, we have to see one of the possible big contenders of the season, Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the iconic musical that translates Romeo and Juliet to the context of a street gang war in 1950s New York. While the decision to adapt again something that has been a classic both in Broadway and in movie theaters almost 60 years ago is a challenge, the idea of Spielberg doing a musical closer to the stage version with Tony Kushner as the writer is too tempting for the average Academy voter, who is already saving a spot in major categories in case Steven nails it in December. However, there’s two question marks. First, how well will Ansel Elgort and newcomer Rachel Zegler stand out in the roles of Tony and Maria? And second, will In the Heights steal some of the thunder of this movie by being, you know, more modern?

Girl....I don't even know where to flipping begin. `First of all, you're not staying in the flat. GTFO NOW. Get three other roommate somewhere else if you have to, but detach yourself from this cancer NOW. That's is your top priority over everything else in your life.` Your life is in major crisis. I'm not being dramatic. I don't care if your ex is as good looking as Sebastian Stan. This guy is a complete and utter toxic mess and you are poisoning yourself by being around these people. `I would suggest telling them you were cool with it, wait until they are out of the house, and then get all of your stuff and GTFO of dodge.` Everything about this situation screams of danger to me. Your ex has used you for so long and the fact that they think you are going to happily be in your room, paying half the rent when they've done this to you - oh my God, I've got chills. Not going to lie, the beginning of this post made me laugh out loud because how crazy it was, but about half way through it stopped being funny. Your ex is nuts if he thinks this is going to fly. `Let's summarize the absolute craziness:` >I have supported him financially over the last 4 years at different times paying his share of the rent. I was working part time and studying but I paid the rent and bills then.>>we moved to London so I could get a graduate job and he could study at University here with the understanding that I would pay the rent and bills so he could study. `Okay, so he's been living on your dime for 4 years 'saving up' while you manage to work your butt of, pay all the bills, pay the rent, and go to school, but he must be a great supportive bf right?` >Andrew and I have been having constant conversations about our relationship and if we should even be together. He feels that I have used him as a therapist and that I am too emotional, have no direction in life, I’m not independent, mature and I am not consistent and I am unpredictable. So you are aware, my mum was diagnosed with cancer last year and my dad is having bad mental health problems. My granny and grandad also passed away in 2019. Last year I finished my undergraduate degree and managed to secure a good job before moving over to London.>>In the last two weeks my mum has had a serious health scare and my dad tried to commit suicide. `GUESS NOT. Instead of supporting his partner who is COMPLETELY FUNDING HIS LIFESTYLE, he just makes you feel bad when you are going through the worst time in your entire life. OKAY. WOW. This is where it stopped being funny and just made me effing furious, OP. He is such a drag on your life.` >On Wednesday Andrew told me that he had made a decision that though he had tried to help me to be more independent emotionally, he was unable to support me anymore. \[..\] he clarified that he wanted to break up with me. Andrew and Lauren have both admitted that they have feelings for each other and they want to see how things go. They have said that I don’t have to understand but I have to accept how they feel.>> He thinks that now is a good opportunity for us to have time apart, I can become independent and that we can both have new experiences. `TELL HIM YOU NEED TO MOVE OUT TO FEEL INDEPENDENT AND THEN NEVER TALK TO HIM AGAIN.` I can not stress this, OP. You need to GET AWAY from these two. NOW. At all costs. Break the lease, do whatever you have to do but GET OUT. `>They both want me to stay in the apartment and not move out so that I don’t isolate myself in a new city as they both care for me (or so they say, I have a feeling it could be more to do with the fact that I am paying half the rent). They have also advised me not to go on any dates so that I can take the time to emotionally heal.` You are 100% correct. 100. Freaking. Percent. They are both using you for a paycheck and that is all you are to them. There is ZERO emotional attachment to you. In fact, the way they have behaved suggested they in fact hate you. I'm not trying to be mean, but I would not treat my worst enemy the way they have treated you. This is so gross. `>Andrew and I have a lot of mutual friends and he asked my advice on how best to mention Lauren to our friends group without putting her in a bad light.` Girl. I would honestly go scorched effing earth. I would literally read this post to your mutual friends so they know what kind of man Andrew is. He can go be a leech with Lauren's friends. `>Over the last 4 months I haven’t made as much of an effort as I should have to meet new people and I have been relying on both of them to be my friends in a new city. I have however tried to pursue things like piano and art at home. All I asked of them was to let me know if they were doing something or at least invite me out even if it was too late for me to go.` Great. Now it's time for the big change in your life that's going to literally fix a huge cause of your emotional problems. GTFO of there and never talk to either of them again. `>They fully expect me to stay in the flat, be friends with them both and make it work.` I am stunned. `I just...` OP. `Girl. Come on.` You need to leave this all behind you and start living your best life NOW. You have suffered so much loss and instead of being able to deal with that, you have had to deal with this mess. Get rid of the cancer, OP. Cut it out. You will be SO MUCH HAPPIER once you are rid of these two. `And yeah, that's easier said then done. You've been with him for 9 years...but girl. This was a HUGE learning experience for you. You did not waste your time on him...you learned so much about other people, about yourself, and leaving this all behind you for good is going to create a new OP that is stronger, better, and HAPPIER.` My God. I am just...so stunned and disgusted by all of this. posted by JustAsICanBeSoCruel on /relationship_advice Click here to view the post. ● 4,341 Upvotes ● 3 reward(s). ● 1 silver reward(s), 1 gold reward(s) and 1 platinum reward(s) ● Posted: 09/02/2020 at 13:38:23 UTC

The Cinderella story requires that Cinderella leave behind some clue as to her identity. This question is a common nitpick that goes hand-in-hand with another one, \"Why doesn't the prince recognize Cinderella's face?\" `In the Perrault version of the tale (1697), which is the one most modern adaptations most closely resemble, both of these are a non-issue. The Prince sends his men to go search for the maiden whose foot fits the slipper. But this is just to narrow it down. It is not definitive proof. Cinderella produces the matching slipper, which is the proof, and then she is brought to the Prince, who recognizes her upon seeing her, thus doubly verifying her identity. Note that most stage and screen adaptations of the story have the Prince be the one to place the shoe on Cinderella's foot personally, because this makes for a more compelling image, and it also helps wrap up the plot in a visual medium where changing locations costs time, if the Prince can just already be there. But, contrary to what many people seem to remember, the Disney version actually follows the Perrault very closely here, and the Prince is not present for the shoe-trying-on.` In the Grimm version of the story (1812 -- don't ever refer to the Grimm version as \"the original\" when I'm in the room) the ball is held over three nights, and Cinderella goes every night. Every night, when it gets to be a bit too much for her, she flees. There is no midnight deadline. On the third night, the Prince lays out pitch on the stairway, which catches one of her shoes. Modern audiences might be familiar with this version of the story from Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's musical *Into The Woods*, which goes a step further, by making leaving the shoe a deliberate choice on Cinderella's part, thus placing the burden of choosing what to do next on the Prince. `Most modern versions of *Cinderella* use some combination of these explanations. But there are other options.` In a French opera, *Cendrillon*, by Nicolas Isouard and Charles-Guillaume Étienne, the slipper is combined with a magic rose that conceals Cinderella's identity. The introduction of the rose as a constant magical presence with Cinderella allows the plot to more or less say \"A wizard did it\" to every possible nitpick. An Italian adaptation of this opera a few years later, *Agatina, O La Virtù Premiata*, realizes the full merits of the rose, and disposes of the slipper entirely. Now the magic rose is the only device needed to verify Cinderella's identity. `Note, Isouard's opera premiered in 1810, two years before the Grimms published their version.` Another operatic adaptation from *Cendrillon* and *Agatina* came in a few years later, this one *La Cenerentola* by Gioachino Rossini and Jacopo Ferretti. This one eschews magic entirely. Cinderella is helped by the Prince's tutor who is specifically scouting the land to help the Prince find a wife of true virtue. The tutor has gone about dressed as a beggar, and Cinderella was the only person to offer him charity, and so he sends her to the ball in disguise. (The beggar-as-test-of-virtue is a device that gets used in various adaptations. In western versions of the story, the 1810 opera is the first I can find that uses this device, but a similar plot element occurs in an similar Chinese folktale from much earlier.) In this version, the tutor provides Cinderella with two matching bracelets, one of which Cinderella gives to the Prince for the express purpose of tracking her down later. `There have been many different versions of the Cinderella story through history, and they come with lots of different ways the slipper or slipper-equivalent is used. There is always a clue as to Cinderella's identity, but sometimes it is left on accident, sometimes on purpose, sometimes wrested away by force. Often, the shoe size is less important than selective memory would have you believe. Of the well-known literary versions of the tale, it is only the Grimm version where Cinderella's identity is confirmed solely through the shoe fitting perfectly, and that is also noticeably the one where the shoe gets stuck off with pitch. In most other versions, the shoe is not the sole determiner of Cinderella's identity, and therefore the story does not need it to be watertight.` posted by Yoyti on /AskReddit Click here to view the post. ● 5,814 Upvotes ● 3 reward(s). ● 1 silver reward(s), 1 gold reward(s) and 1 platinum reward(s) ● Posted: 09/02/2020 at 18:52:47 UTC
2020.01.09 06:55 fuckthetopEd Westwick and Jessica Szohr
So I totally forgot these two dated until I was reading an article on co-stars who dated lol. I also forgot that Leighton Meester dated Sebastian Stan lol. Anyway, it reminded me of this blog post I read that this girl wrote after she visited the set of GG. This was after Ed and Jessica broke up (she allegedly cheated on him). And I remember she said that literally all the main cast only interacted with Jessica during filming but pretty much shunned her when the cameras weren’t rolling. A little similar to how everyone hates Vanessa 🤣

2019.10.27 21:49 NukaCreamWhy Is Marvel Letting Peggy Carter RUIN Captain America?
This is more of an honest question than anything, but please bear with me before you think I'm just someone who's against Steggy. I am not trying to attack or hurt anyone, but I have a lot to get off my chest and I have a lot of reasons for it. To start, let me just ask: What about Ohana? I'll be fair and warn you that if you hardcore ship it, and don't want to even question that decision reasonably, turn back now. I think I'm being fair and offering good points, but you shouldn't stick around if you know it's going to upset you. Take it with a grain of salt if you do, I like to joke around and tease. XD (Also be prepared for a crackhead~<3.) That being said, let me just start with letting you know I am actually NOT Anti-Peggy. She's a fictional character. No one should be taking this too seriously because she's about as good as the writers and actors who play with her. On a more serious note, I'm disgusted with some of the writing and alleged actions of her Actress and fans, but I do think there are merits to the character and some of how she's been portrayed. I like old Peggy. I like Peggy as a friend to Steve. And I don't mind her as the chance of a romance he missed. In the right universe, under the right circumstances, maybe they would have the chance to be together. The problem is, I haven't seen that. And the current portrayal of Steggy is forced at the expense of assassinating the character of Steve Rogers. And that's the part that upsets me. I used to be fine with the ship. Even liked it. Now it only nauseates me... It's been months. MONTHS since Endgame. The movie wasn't perfect, but it was solid for me. I'm sure opinions differ but I enjoyed it. Up until the very end... You all know the one. The one where Steve Rogers gives up and abandons his family and best friend for some random woman he met during the war. Because you know. Apparently knowing someone a lifetime, learning to move on, and loving a group of people that's become your family over the YEARS you've been with them means absolutely nothing in light of barely catching a glimpse of the only woman who existed on a battlefield while you were busy fighting a war, shared one kiss with, and never even managed to go on a date with. You know, because getting laid. And also, apparently that constitutes her being the love of your life. And apparently all the other stuff that happens in history, like his best friend undergoing 70 years of torture and murdering tons of people is just... inconsequential. Of course. If you can't tell, yes, I'm still upset about this. The more I think about it, the more sour the feeling gets. It's a garbage ending for Cap that I wish I never spent money to sit through. And unfortunately the reason, unlike other Marvel movies, that I can't bring myself to watch Endgame again. And I can even sit through the bad ones! EASILY! (I do not have high standards...) Months, and this still makes me upset. I'm not gonna dive too much into why I disagree with the creepy uncle theory. Words tend to run away from me and I'll be honest, they probably will again. But basically, Steve going back for Peggy makes him unworthy and a creepy uncle. If you do wanna dive into all that bitchin' and my theory to work around it, follow this link~ The RIGHT Partner. ***OFFICIALLY POSTING CONCEPT WORK FOR MY COMIC!!! Follow the link and look for triple asterisks and bold writing mentioning the same towards the bottom of the post.**\* Heh, still agree with the sentiments for Logan by the way. I went back and watched it and swooned~. Cried multiple times, and HOLY SHIT Laura. As far as send off endings go, it was about a million times better. Back to my bitterness. I used to be okay with Steggy. But the ending to Steve Rogers' Arc and some recent info digging has left me in a hard position to stay on that line. It doesn't sit well with me anymore. And not just because I'm sad about Cap, though that's obviously a big part of it. It has me asking, how did they let this happen? And are they going to fix it? Because they really, really should. And you know, the crazy thing is, I don't blame Peggy. She's just one character without a real place in comics or movies, in the hands of too many people that don't know what else to do with her and probably don't want to get eaten alive by her fans. But here's the thing. The real history at least: Peggy Carter was never originally a love interest for Captain America. What she was, was a Virginian girl, belonging to a rich family who somehow ended up helping the war effort in France. She loses her memories, and is sent home. Originally, Sharon was her sister, Peggy had never known Cap's real identity and even went a bit crazy as an old lady when Sharon had introduced her boyfriend, Steve, claiming they needed to find Cap. They retconned in the romance with Cap, along with making her 16! at the time. And basically remade her history to match the completely nameless love interest they gave to Cap in his old 60s cartoon, even changing Cap's attraction to Sharon to be related to how much she looked like Peggy. Instead of just... you know. Using Betsy? Betsy Ross? His ORIGINAL, true, first love interest? Who disguised herself as an old lady but then fought along side him with Bucky. Golden Girl? The original Agent 13 that they used Peggy to replace... That they could have had in the movie but didn't??? No? Okay. What about Al? Althea? Blind Al. Deadpool's old housemate? MI6 Agent Al? She gives a medal to Wade saying it belonged to an old soldier she had an affair with during the war~. The medal's engraved with Steve's undying love~ for her, and he remembers her when he's on the mission with Deadpool and sees the medal. NO?? Okay, that one's more obscure, so I'll be fair, lol. But what about Sharon? The Intense, awesome Agent that she is. The one who's solidly been his love interest in the comics for YEARS and years and YEARS. The one who'd do practically anything to follow Steve's example, and is basically, for all intents and purposes, his common law wife. The one who has an adopted son with Steve and nearly had a kid with him. The one who Steve loves SO MUCH, even his Hydra counterpart was obsessive over her and happy to stay with her, while he's young and she's old. The gal who's obsessed with finding the 'world's greatest hamburger' (YES! My favorite obscure part about this old lady~!). Hmm... Honestly, I'm starting to think Steve has a thing for old ladies, but I guess that's not the point. What about Fury Sr.... That came out wrong but I'm leaving it in. He's... not a love interest for Cap, BUT. He IS the original founder of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a war buddy of Cap's, who they apparently just decided to delete from history all together in the MCU. In favor of Peggy. So not only is her comic history obscure and inappropriate, she's a character that they have been using, essentially, and almost exclusively, to erase the purposes that other characters meet, and snub the characters themselves. Well that's... harsh. But okay. I guess I could have accepted this. You know, studios and actors and money. Maybe they just didn't have the budget for the other characters, right? It's not like Fury was that important... Or like there were better ways to handle this. Except there were. I have a pretty high tolerance for creative changes and understanding them within a different created universe by these writers. Because as an artist in my own right, I get it. No one wants to tell the same story repeatedly, but we might like a story enough to want to retell it our own way, right? That's why stories passed down verbally get changed over time, and even the classic fairy tales are left to reinterpretation. But there's only so far to push before the story changes entirely, there is a certain responsibility to the source and finding balance with the reinterpretation. When I draw fanart, I want to recreate the image I see in my own style, not just copy it. But obviously, there's only so far I can push before I've changed what I'm drawing. So I get it, I really do. Only problem is, the biggest snub of all with this issue? Was Cap. (And on a side note, I really wish Peggy wasn't a character used so often to snub others, that really sucks.) His character has been hurt the most by the use of Peggy as a love interest. Comics and Movies. The real Steve Rogers, who literally admits he CAN'T sit by and watch bad things happen, would never willingly choose to do that. It's not in his nature. It is quite plainly the opposite of the 'right thing to do' which frickin' is his nature! So how did this happen??? THE REAL STEVE ROGERS WOULD NEVER HAVE A ROMANCE WITH AN AMNESIAC 16 YEAR OLD IN FRANCE DURING THE WAR!!!! What the HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL, why do this??? Well, I did further digging, and found out that the Actress who played this particular 'love interest' and her very very vocal group of die hard fans have been practically fanatical about it. Apparently, she'd been supportive of Sharon and Steve being a couple at first. Even mentioned herself being a great option to play Sharon in blonde wig. But after, allegedly, her show was cancelled and Emily VanCamp was cast as Sharon Carter, she did everything in her power to drag the character and Staron shippers through the dirt. Almost like she was upset, and petty that the attention shifted off of her. And I'm gonna say this all 'allegedly' because apparently, the woman even deleted her twitter around the time this happened. I'm sure a list of evidence could be compiled and some have been with some more digging, but who has the time? (someone I'm sure, not me, lol, I just need to get this out for my stress relief! feel free to take it as hot air too, I don't mind, I promise! XD) Apparently, her fans had tried to get VanCamp to 'kill herself' to eliminate the 'Sharon problem', like that's somehow a fucking joke??? Apparently, she encouraged disgust with fans for the ship, rude behavior to VanCamp, even accusing it of being 'incestuous', which for the record, no. It wasn't, not until they made Cap go back to Peggy after making out with apparently his own niece, with absolutely nothing on his conscience for that. It was originally only Cap leaving the woman who literally died, for a younger woman that happened to be related to her. Steve never belonged to Peggy. Peggy made it incestuous. Apparently, she shit talked about Sharon constantly, even 'joking' about Peggy becoming a supervillain just to keep them apart. Allegedly, she was very adamant and deliberate in encouraging hatred of Sharon Carter, and the Sharon CarteStaron fanbase, in favor of her own. Apparently, she has a thing for Chris Evans... which almost makes it like she was trying to live out a personal fantasy of her own through the fictional characters??? Which... I'm sure if he'd been interested, he woulda just said so! And let's talk about the unhealthy foundations for this supposed 'true love' story for a second. Do people even consider that their 'relationship' was based and entirely built on jealousy and longing glances??? Or the fact that Peggy could have made a move at ANY point when Steve was still small, and just like anyone else, didn't really give him a second glance? Or really any attention at all until after he came out of that machine big and buff. After not believing he could handle it. Maybe it's bold of me to say this, but I don't think she actually loved the man. As in, who Steve Rogers was as a person or character. Bucky mentions he wasn't gonna follow Captain America, he was followin' the little guy, and it's part of what made the idea of them as family, always sticking together, so believable. It's part of what made the promise between them so meaningful. We get nothing like this from Peggy, she's as stale to Steve to start as she is to the rest of the soldiers, which sure, fair enough, but why the sudden change? Why after the experiment? His personality certainly didn't change, right? Oh, but his body did. Mmhmm. And what about the fact that she shot at him for kissing another woman. When they weren't together. Because she was Jealous. While Steve thought she wasn't available. Because fondue. See, his jealousy was cute. But even if they hadn't been in a war zone, her jealousy was psychotic rage. One of those bullets could have hit him, or worse, him and many could have ricocheted and hit others, and I can't help but wonder where that would have gotten them. I highly doubt she would have done this to a small Steve. No, his ability to 'handle it' is no excuse. Brainwashing is, but she was supposedly sane. Would you date someone who shot at you out of jealousy? But it's all okay, one kiss in a moving car and a missed first date, and it's true love for sure. ... I don't buy it. But let's bring it back around. Her reaction to Sharon, Emily, and the emboldened and blatant sabotage of the originally intended relationship, all while encouraging her fans to be extreme, instead of telling them, 'hey, we don't do that, don't send death threats'. And if you'e gonna tell me her fans don't have a cult like mentality, I'd like you to take a look at some of the comments, and just the reactions to criticism or question in this subreddit in general. (Yes, of course some Stucky fans are pretty bad too, but at least Sebastian Stan never encouraged that behavior. And most of them never cared if the couple became canon, they just happened to love Steve for who he was, and had hoped he'd stay in character instead of leaving Bucky to rot in Hydra's grasp. For about 70 years. BeCaUsE gEtTiNg LaId. Totally believable.) This is not how an adult, mature woman, allegedly, should act. This is actually a child throwing a tantrum, and I'm kinda ticked off Marvel let her have her way. They originally had planned for Sharon to be the one spending time with Steve at the beginning of Infinity Wars and are trying to pretend the creepy uncle theory had been the plan from day one. I suspect they let themselves get bullied into this and I really wish I had a melting stick cause I share sentiments with the Grandmaster right about now. THEY RUINED MY CHAMPION! Lol, just a bit of ridiculousness for you. But they did use Peggy to ruin Steve Rogers. And now, officially, that's what she'll only ever be to me. The character they used to to ruin Steve Rogers and I really wish they'd stop. It's almost worse than Jane. Who they had forget about Thor and get married to another man, start a family, and then dump said family for Thor even though he's not interested... Yeahhhh... great. Good, worthy people abandon their families all the time... At least with Sharon, Steve would have still been worthy. Still fit his character. And hey! The more I learned about Sharon, the more I loved her, she's actually a really great and cool character, little intense at times, but hey, comics. Romanogers would have been a better option too, and that's saying something. This, just made me feel even worse about the situation. And still has me wondering how anyone could let this happen in the first place. And I'm still hoping for that retcon. And of course I could be wrong. But I don't think Steve's character would have been bulldozed the way it was if this were the case. Even Evans did the one thing he was afraid of doing, trying to get away from it all. Screwed up Captain America, and I don't blame him. I feel bad for him in this shit show cause he just seemed so happy to leave all the pressure of it. I just wish he'd step up to the plate and actually help fix it. But maybe that's wishing too much for a guy who's not really Captain America, lol. He just played the part so well, it still makes Endgame feel wrong. They played us like a damn fiddle! Did I say that? ;)))))))))))))))))))))))) You might not get that reference. Anyway, I still don't understand how anyone could be happy with Cap or what's been done to him. I just really hope they fix this soon. ***Oh! Ooh! So I has a couple questions just for those that do stand by this ending and made it this far, cause I'm honestly still kinda curious, it seems like many are willing to ignore all the bad in favor of the 'happy' ending and I wanna know how that rationalization process happens, I guess. (I am very interested in brains, don't judge me... or do, I guess, I can't really stop you! XD)
Would you really want Steve to sit by and ignore everything bad (i.e. Bucky's torture, Howard's murder, Hydra taking over S.H.I.E.L.D.) so he could live a quiet life with Peggy?
If you think he's gone to an alternate universe so he can fix everything, what about his prime universe that still goes through all that bad stuff? Why bother coming back? What about prime Peggy? What about alternate Sam and Bucky? Alternate Steve? Is it really okay for him to be stealing an alternate Peggy from the alternate universe Steve? Is it really okay for him to trade the 'love of his life' for what would essentially be a perfect clone of her? If she were ever truly the 'love of his life' as he claimed, why would he be so willing to trade her for a copy?
How do you rationalize Steve being 'worthy' if he has to do terrible things, from all angles, just to be with Peggy? Hasn't he admitted he is not the person who can sit by and do nothing? What makes this any different and why is it suddenly okay? (This is what makes the ending a plothole, they have gone against their own narrative and disregarded massive amounts of character development for Steve, including his very selfless nature.)
How does this fit with the character they had previously established of Steve? Of Peggy? Do you really think she would be happy with this as well? That she'd even lie to him, and about Alzheimer's pretty much for shits and giggles? Wasn't the entirety of his arc with her pointing to her being his symbol to help himmove on?**Confirmed early plans for Infinity Wars depicted Steve living with Sharon, which means this decision was a last minute change to the narrative.**
Are you really okay with him going back for Peggy even though he's made out with Sharon? This would mean he becomes her uncle, and never does anything to stop it.
That is gross, just thought I should say that.
Sooo gross... #nothankscreepyunclesteve
Is all of this really worth the 'happy' ending when a truly happy ending was something Stevealreadyhad in the future, with the family he had found and the people who loved him?What could have been called his 'Ohana'. If he's 'earned his due' and 'happy end', why was this family supposedly not good enough?
What happened to 'bros before hoes'?
Do you really think there were no other better ways to handle Steve Rogers' ending, while keeping him in character?
If 'No' was your answer for the previous question, my first question is 'oh really'??? What about Steve living his life with Sharon still in the future, training recruits and handling separate issues out of the spotlight? This would have undoubtedly still fit his character, never had him abandon his family, and been a happy end and send off, best of all worlds. And he never would have been a creepy uncle, just a guy who moved on. Why would that not be acceptable? But creepy uncle somehow... is...
Still sooooooooo gross. #nothankscreepyunclesteve
But now I'll ask a different question. Are you really happy with the Steggy end knowing what it costs and compromises, not just from Steve, but from Peggy too? Do you really think she'd be happy knowing what Steve would have to do to be with her (on either account, alternate or prime reality) and just willingly accept it? What does that say about her character? Do you thinkshe'dbe happy knowing Bucky was being tortured? That Hydra was hiding in S.H.I.E.L.D.? Or that the real Steve that she knew (if she's the alternate) was still in the Ice?
"What did it cost?" "Everything..." Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. I mentioned Ohana earlier, because it's one of my favorite messages to ever be portrayed in a Disney film. It was a message that they had actively portrayed with the Marvel films, with the Avengers, especially with Steve and Bucky. And then just decided to stomp all over in favor of what exactly? An extremely shallow and selfish portrayal of 'love'? Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind... or forgotten... And yet, that seemes to be exactly what they made Steve Rogers, Steve Rogers of ALL people do.. Does that really seem right to you? Honestly, I'm still super curious cause nobody is able to give me straight answers on any of this kinda stuff, they all kinda shy away when I point it out cause I guess yeah, that stuff is pretty bad. Aaaaaaaaand I probably won't get answers cause I guess it kinda seems like homework, lol. But beyond the surface, just with a little bit of deeper thinking, it's painfully easy to see just how messed up the ending actually is. I started thinking about it again, and I'm starting to wonder if maybe Peggy's more of a villain here who actually trapped Steve in the past! Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnn!!! Considering the portrayal, I honestly wouldn't be surprised, she's a bit creepily obsessed and kind of irrational. (Why does she have a picture of tiny Steve on her desk in the 70s instead of her husband and kids? Possible grandkids? That's weird. Like, not just a little weird, that's super duper weird... Also, she woulda been at least 50, they should have showed this, they didn't even try!) But I could totally get behind a storyline where Steve sends a series of discreet S.O.S.'s to the future so he can get away from her. Or Maybe the Red Skull replaced him by having their souls swap bodies or something! And HE's the one who lived out that life with a Peggy!!! They never did show what happened between Steve and Skully, lol. But wouldn't THAT be something. Still feel free to take any of this as hot air though and ignore me, I ramble like a MADMAN! AHAHAHA!!! Also, I'm sad no one caught my double entendre in the title... and of course still hoping for the well needed retcon, maybe they just need a little push though~<3*** TL;DR. The entire MCU design of Peggy Carter is a lie used to erase and snub other characters, and Marvel let the fanbase bully them into using her as a weapon to ruin the one character she was supposed to support. Steve Rogers.
2019.10.16 03:23 FicboyThe MCU: What Should Be Changed
Hello, good folks of MarvelStudios i've been watching been this website for quite a while not to mention commenting there on numerous times about the past, present and future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and even on the official Discord server. I have watched almost every movie to date (except Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home) and have interacted on the Defenders subreddit a bit as well as being familiar enough with the non-Disney+ TV shows. I have great respect for Kevin Feige and his wonderful co. in making these movies and I am content with most decisions but there are a few that I feel from a logical standpoint should have been done very differently and these are the changes that should be.
The Valkyrie casting: The main reason I'm not a huge fan of Tessa Thompson as Brunnhilde/Valkyrie is that this whole "more inclusive"/"broader representation/" reasoning by Taika Watiti doesn't make much sense at all when you consider the presence of Idris Elba as Heimdall and Tadanobu Asano as Hogun the Grim of the Warriors Three in Thor and Thor: The Dark World both already fulfill exactly what he is talking about and even himself as well. That is not even mentioning the presence of a blonde white Valkyrior member meant to represent Valkyrie of the comics in the flashback sequence in Thor: Ragnarok reaching out to the Valkyrie of the films and the other characters in MCU films such as Nick Fury, James Rhodes/War Machine, Sam Wilson/Falcon, Gamora (played by Zoe Saldana), T'Challa/Black Panther and the entirety of Wakanda and Mantis in multiple installments, Gabe Jones and Jim Morita in Captain America: The First Avenger and to a lesser extent Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Helen Cho and South Korea in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Wong in Doctor Strange, Liz Allan in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Ganke "Ned" Lee/Flash Thompson/Michelle Jones in the former film and Spider-Man: Far From Home (I referred the last one as Ganke Lee because he is essentially him all but in name). So when you basically consider all of this that I've pointed out it really makes this whole casting/racebending seem redundant to what has already been done before. But that being said while I would want to introduce a Nordic blonde Brunnhilde/Valkyrie to the big screen I am most certainly would never get rid of Tessa Thompson either let's face it firing her and kicking her out would cause backlash amongst fans and I understand that neither she nor Taika Waititi would be very happy given the former's importance. So it would be better to bring the best of two worlds that is my vision and their vision co-exist on the big screen together without completely diminishing the other in other words a comics-accurate looking Brunnhilde/Valkyrie shows up but Tessa Thompson stays and even if it isn't her I suggest another important Valkyrior member named Val who has her as a close friend/personal lovesecond-in-command after all in a world in which there is two Black Widows (Natasha Romanoff and Yelena Belova in addition to Melina), two Thors (Thor Odinson and Jane Foster), multiple Spider-People (Peter Parker, Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, Miguel O'Hara and Pend Parker) and now two Hawkeyes (Clint Barton and Kate Bishop) what's to say we can't two Valkyries one representing the comics the other representing the films and the Valkyrior are multiple women not just one like how there are multiple Winter Soldiers. Thor: The Dark World was even close to introducing a Nordic blonde Brunnhilde/Valkyrie at one point based on concept art alone.
The Captain America successor: Okay, I feel that I need to speak out against this decision. For one, the whole "opposites"/"damaged mind" explanation for why Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier isn't Captain America was only half-heartedly true to begin with since not only is he Steve Rogers/Captain America's best friend having discussed his pre-World War II life such as mentioning his mother's first name, the time when he tried to win a stuffed bear for a girl named Dolores and when he used to wear newspapers as shoes he also attended his mother's funeral but he also protected him from bullies when he was just a scrawny young man from Brooklyn. New York City, New York, went to Stark Expo with him, fought alongside each other during World War II where even during the train fight against HYDRA Nazis he held his shield and when he fell he uttered his name, when he found out that he was alive and a brainwashed assassin he did everything in his power to reach out to him and told him "I'm with you to the end of the line" echoing their friendship during the climatic fight on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarier when he stopped HYDRA from taking over the world and when he fell into the water his friend saved and dragged out him of the water not to mention having held his shield again, even when he killed Tony Stark/Iron Man's parents he protected him and even got to use the shield for the third time this applies to when did the same with the German Special Forces chasing both of them, they were also in Wakanda after Civil War and they fought against Thanos and the Black Order when he dusted right in front of him he walked over there and their relationship has even been described as "brothers" by Anthony Russo hell of the other events I described not even his personal past/broken mind stopped him from reaching out and defending him after all this is the same person who's worked with a former criminal (Scott Lang/Ant-Man) and an ex-KGB assassin with "red in her ledger" (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow) while in the Avengers. And as for the description of Sam Wilson/Falcon having "free will/similar ethic/military service" what the Russo brothers seem to forget is that pre-Winter Soldier Bucky Barnes was exactly just like him he had the same personality traits as him only this time it's more personal and stretches back to their childhood and World War II. Now realistically it's not a good idea to just get rid of Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson/Falcon entirely from Captain America since it wouldn't please him or the Russo brothers so perhaps having the Captain America identity shared between his character and Sebastian Stan's Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier alternating between them can work since there have been instances of two people holding the mantle in the comics at the same time plus it can represent the past, present and future of Captain America without making it too one-sided.
Mar-Vell: Honestly this was one change I suggested that actually was going to happen according to one of the directors Ryan Fleck that Mar-Vell would be the male Kree superhero of the comics even with some alterations yet one person suggested it was a good idea to gender flip her despite Annette Bering already being the Supreme Intelligence and this was a last minute change which I feel is really sloppy and unneeded. A better solution is to introduce a more comics accurate Mar-Vell/Walter Lawson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel's father and the Mar-Vell we saw is his former wife trying to find him but died before she could find out. We know that Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel is half-Human/half-Kree in the comics and film even having a mother who is Kree as detailed in Life of Captain Marvel so perhaps this can apply here.
The Ancient One: I understand that Scott Derrickson wanted to avoid East Asian stereotypes and potential banning by the government of China over anything Tibet-related but whitewashing a Chinese/Tibetan character was a bad idea and only created more controversy. Sure Tilda Swinton is very talented and I am fine with her in the MCU like the other actors/actresses but this is not her role and the best way is to perhaps make the Ancient One a ceremonial title passed on from generation with the white female Celtic sorceress having been one of many to have held that title.
The Fate of Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow and Steve Rogers/Captain America: I was not happy with what happened with the former in Avengers: Endgame pulling for some reason a sacrifice despite already having her own film and Steve Rogers/Captain America just as worthy of a heroic sacrifice as Tony Stark/Iron Man because like him he is the face of the team. At least with the former they could reverse but with the latter obviously this can't happen so the best I can do is maybe Helmut Zemo kills the old Steve Rogers/Captain America while peacefully in his own house.
Of course, I know not everyone is going to agree with me and some will have resistance but these solutions proposed are crafted so as not to leave anyone empty-handed, disappointed, angry and/ot diminsh their overall importance either. But for what it's worth this is the best I can come up with. I do this because I love the movies and the source material in general like you and I care so much about just like all of you.
2019.10.07 06:16 ViolentCatz93I watched an episode for the first time in 7 years..here's what I thought.
Wow. Well, I did pick an odd episode. I watched season 3 episode 1.The main reason I decided to watch was due to my newfound obsession of Sebastian Stan.(I knew he would be in S3E1) I was watching Infinity War a few months ago and when Bucky came on screen, I instantly noticed how sexy he was. (To clarify, I hadn't seen most of the MCU movies, and especially none of the Captain America movies, so it was my first time seeing Bucky) I had to know who the actor was and when I looked on IMDB, I was shocked when I saw that he was Carter Baizen. It's amazing what facial/long winter soldier hair / time/ buffing up/general post GG success did to him. Maybe it's also because I'm older now and find guys in their mid to late 30s way sexier than guys in their 20s. I watched GG as it aired, I was 14 when it premiered and 19 when it ended. I never found Carter appealing at all, and actually hated that he took screentime away from the other guys. I didn't find him attractive. Upon my 1 episode rewatch, Carter still does nothing for me but it's so fascinating to watch him in this role, knowing how he's grown as an actor. Anyway, this post wasnt meant to be all about Seb so I will continue. When I watched this originally, I eventually found most of the characters insufferable but I was at least entertained. As a 26 year old mom, I found it really hard to get through. I skipped through some just to see Seb's parts. *Serena is the WoOoOoOoOoOrRrRsT as I remember. I mean, I empathize that her dad is 2009 version GhOoOsTiNg her, but she tells all her friends Carter is stalking her simply because she's embarrassed that her dad won't see her? What in the actual hell. Also, Serena ditched him over the summer and rejects him most of the episode, but then he does a little wooing and then they have sex in the woods? Serena, she will literally give any guy the time a day for being slightly nice to her. And then fall in love with then. Going back and thinking about all the guys she dated, damn girl. I'm not slut shaming, it's more how she tried so hard to have a deep relationship with every one of them and was instantly falling in love. *Chuck...I didn't see it then but now I'm wondering why you're always squinting your eyes. Do you need glasses? Also, why you always talking like you're getting over a cold? But, Chuck is the best when he's a good partner to Blair. *Blair remains the shining light for me. Leighton Meester was easily the best part of this show. I watch her in ABCs Single Parents where she plays the anti Blair. It's great. *Jenny, didn't do much this episode but she irritates me. *Eric really seems like he deserves better people to be around. *Dan, ugh. How did I ever relate to you or find you cute as a teen? He wasnt too bad this episode, that honor goes to *Vanessa. Damn. Probably the biggest change for in character liking is her. I liked her initially but now, I don't understand what her deal is. She spent this whole episode raving about Dan and how he's changed, but she doesn't care that he's rich, but that's basically what she's actually mad at him for? Dan wasnt even bad this episode. I hate the way they dress her. Jessica Szohr deserved a better wardrobe. *Nate....the Gossip Girl equivalent to mashed potatoes. That is all. *Rufus, you're too good for everyone on this show, including your own awful kids. Is that all these kids do is complain about their born privileges and wealth? But then comfortably indulge in these same privileges when its convenient? Serena: ugh. Wah. I dont wanna go to Brown. I wanna throw away this amazing chance to do....whatever. I'm gonna go shopping. Nate:I dont wanna take any internships from my family! I don't wanna take this car from my grandpa. But, I guess I will if I really need to. At least Blair was always a go-getter and always doing whatever it took to get where she wanted. These kids acting like they're above what they're born into. Who pays for your coffee? Your lunch? Your expensive clothes? I know it's just a TV show, but damn. This show is like 50%trash.

REASON So if we look at the terminator time line the story is complete in judgement day so we can't move forward but there is one story we can tell, the story that leads to t1 and t2. let's be straight here john Connor**[ definitely played by christian bale]** should be main character no Arguments, he is leader of the resistance after all and the plot should revolve around the story of the possibility of undoing judgement day, john already knows that he always had to send back kyle as it was always inevitable for john Connor existence but the idea to stop judgement day would have been the call for action to kick off the story . https://preview.redd.it/u42s3r41aal31.png?width=780&format=png&auto=webp&s=71e4bc0a0d8f71aded12c0c226d08f1c79fce3ae this bit is after i watched judgement day to make sure there would be no plot holes with the orders that where given to the t-800, unfortunately the only objective is to stop the t-1000 from killing john connor but it's sarah connor who has the plan . however, timeline wise this wouldn't make that much sense assuming that the t-8000 has ALWAYS been sent back to protect jon connor as a kid [since the t-1000 would have killed and future Jon connor wouldn't be able to send the t-800 ] meaning Sarah Connor would have ALWAYS been free'd and able to stop judgement day. you see the problem here [IN LINEAR TIME ANYWAY]. https://preview.redd.it/nibmuhfbaal31.png?width=500&format=png&auto=webp&s=2d73497a87419cdd3c97d46e509be24d312498e5 so i don't think it will hurt if we go back to t2 and add a line of dialouge where arnold states his second command after Jon Connor is secured is to stop judgement day [obviously that doesn't happen as young jon connor can just override that easily] anyway with that out the way we need to to remove the time machine they used on Kyle Reece since there would be no story , so lets say as soon as the reece is sent skynet attack and destroy the machine in order to stop them, but the resistance succeed as they have always in the context of Spacetime or 4 dimensional space bla bla bla this could be our opening of jon connor saying goodbye to kyle reece [played by Sebastian stan of course] and fighting off the t-600/800s. https://preview.redd.it/8f4ksdmiaal31.png?width=781&format=png&auto=webp&s=c915db0b89329cedd6d2e9a0e82888dfcc59e393 at a certain point early in the movie john connor is made aware that time could be changed, not sure how . maybe in this current time line he creates a divergent in which he is able to save a physicist [from now i will call him doctor exposition].anyway upon hearing the news that time travel is possible he would suggest the idea that time can be changed, john would obviously disagree since he would believe time is set in stone due to his whole existence being a paradox other wise, but dr exposition could say some divergence of quantum world theory [basically a time loop/ spiral where their are many times which interact with each other], also i would like to state this is only a theory in irl and i am only using it because the terminator time line literal won't work with out it, and i would make this explain well in the movie so we don't pull a avengers endgame here. https://preview.redd.it/tm5xw48raal31.png?width=500&format=png&auto=webp&s=1a346b0c0501e21406915c73c8b01a39d895e751 i doubt this part is stated in the IRL theory but Dr exposition could suggest a divergent so strong that it wouldn't have the stream effect where "regardless" of how much you change in your past , your current future is always inevitable ala terminator 3. at this point i would like to add that the materials used for the first time machine where very rare and completely irreplaceable, meaning in prior timelines the t-1000 and t-800 would never be able go back to ...1991? i believe that's when it was set. anyway also in the intro jon was able to pick up the small , rare piece of technology that made time travel possible, incase the use time travel again (ik you would question why would he even take it if he didn't believe in time being altered and since nothing came after him after the first terminator came after his mother , but he could explain it they could travel back in time after that point. so if he leaves it and Skynet rebuild the tm again they could use it like a strategic maneuver like kitty in x men day of future past since the first terminator didn't work ...just something to justify his reason for taking it. anyway the plot could progress into their plan of rebuilding the machine under sky nets nose but they find there hiding spot and send the all new t-1000 after them killing loads of people as it unexpected [yeah we don''t need to TRY to make a cooler terminator like very other movie in the series, well maybe not t3 because this was some lame hollywood middle aged men shit ] https://preview.redd.it/rq2y36uzaal31.png?width=644&format=png&auto=webp&s=5a6aeb0b4ab230dad619bb9603135754487b0086 at this point some notes would be left behind and we could get a fp view of the t-1000 deciphering the notes and communing with skynet that they finally found where the gizmo is, it's with john Connor and they are planing to make a new time machine with it. skynet sense opportunity and give the t-1000 a new mission...to herd the sheep and a new time machine is built. this leads to the t-1000 or Skynet purposefully leading on the resistance to know they are preparing a new time machine next to a factory and they want the gizmo back. here you will ask why are they not just killing everyone and taking it straight up, skynet being smart would understand if they did that ,they would get a similar result to the first time machine where the resistance flat out fucks their plan by using overwhelming numbers because they resistance would have every to gain by complete destroying skynet hopes of eradicating the man who is responsible for the resistance. if the resistance believe they have a chance of sneaking in and using it for them sleves they wouldn't basically try and completely destroy it. anyway shit happens in the story, also i would like to add a tidbit where dr exposition has learn't the ability to manipulate the [midi-Cholrians] terminators in order to control them [precursor for the t-800 reveal] and during the middle act they aquire a t-600 that dr exposition had prior he reconfigured as a guard he simplified the method so that another gizmo which generates two electromagnetic signal [one to deactivate the terminator and another put you in command] when you plant it nearest to the chip [the head]. from now one lets call the t-600 rusty [it's the name the physicist gave to the robot since he was allow all those years] https://preview.redd.it/wb9o4xvmbal31.png?width=425&format=png&auto=webp&s=4533ffb486af2e63c3cf9bdc0727e02a3636c115 anyway the t-1000 mission is to also thin the heard so that it's only john left ,it wouldn't be smart to just guide a whole group there. during the second act they start to gather up information about how Skynet started, this is important later because of the particular date that is chosen. at a point near the beginning of the final act we lose rusty and a whole load of johns crew/small Militia to the T-1000 when the enter the time travel complex with a strong force ready . i haven't mention this yet but john intends to back to 1991 himself for the majority of the movie since he already know the situation with young him and his mother. anyway dr exposition suffers a fatal wound and he passes on the gizmo unsure if it would work on the t-1000, i would like to give him a good send off where he tries to blow up the t-1000 and it ruptures some alkanline pipe and we get a scene like this as a homage to raiders https://preview.redd.it/ukck6etsp9l31.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=8a7d0a6e99cd6e53d9d090e873c3ae90e00f7474 at this point i should mention jon wife from the og salvation movie played by bryce dallas howard. i want to keep in as she could be a part a interesting story beat as they wonder what going to happen to them if they stop judgement day, jon will suggest that if they go back in time and undo what has been done then they could perhaps be able to exist with out them being erased from history [since time works a bit differently in the terminator franchise than anticipated. https://preview.redd.it/7rflptjtbal31.png?width=600&format=png&auto=webp&s=de975bdf76f22958a72667dd2a38c59f102ff054 also in the original jon's wife was some into her Pregnancy but in this i am going to make it so she has just found out her pregnancy after the attack on the first time machine , and she is unsure to keep it or tell Jon since it's a rough world to raise a child, when they are the last two and are waiting for the perfect time to sneak past some t-600 no skin she tells him seeing it might be the last opportunity to. they mange their way in taking out one t-600 and planting c-4 rigs around the machines building so when the go to the past they don't follow but it's the t-1000 and it's here . the t-1000 will attack Jon inguring him but nothing lethal , jon tells his wife to take the gizmo and set the coordinates effectively saying go on with out me it will be kinda dramatic since she could assume he is going to die , but she goes with turning back despite the noise unload his shot gun on it but nothing then he remember the stick given to him by the dr exposition, he uses it but it only seems to mentally incapacitate the t-1000 like if sound one is listen to a very loud noise but it give him valuable time to run a way. but the t-1000 sends a command ... all we see is big human feet step down from a platform ... Jon reaches the control room where his wife has finished rigging up the machine with time set explosives triggers to activate 3 seconds after the it's pressed and is setting the date she locks it in so the date can't be changed. she sees jon but raises her gun at him thinking he is the t-1000 play a game [this will be fore shadowed by a similar moment earlier on where her actual brother [who is the original face of the t-1000 from t2 ] getting killed and the t-1000 pretending to be them until it step on a magnetic bomb. in the movie i am kinda setting a small connection with the t-1000 and jon's wife he tells her something personal no machine would know, like how they meet or some bollocks like that. she realize that it's him and slowly lowers here gun until she looks left of him and shout JON!!... a big meaty arm comes into view and knocks Jon half way across the room, and we get a good look at the t-800 in the flesh...literally. https://preview.redd.it/8k31zcs1cal31.png?width=720&format=png&auto=webp&s=b6f07d9538852b0464cd2b1b171fa776a062823f anyway a battle commences where john fights the t-800, his wife tries to take him out the the gun , but it jams to her horror she tries to fix it but it's not coming loose, mean while the t-800 has knocked jon down some black steel stairs and has him on the ropes he attempts to use the butt of his ak 47 as a weapon since he has no bullets left, he hits the terminator on the chin 3 times with no reaction but just it slowly steps forward until it catches it , rip it of his hand and wacks him hard. back upstairs we see some ones feat enter the room while in the same shot we can see jon's wife has successful fixed the shot gun but she looks up at the intruder it's the t-1000... he walks while he takes shots from the shot gun, and stabs thought the right lung... she is left bleeding on the floor, the t-1000 approach's station tries the command screen the date is locked into 1991, he activates the platform and light turn on and futuristic mechanism noises can be heard, but before he can go onto it jon's wife is inches from trigger , the t-1000 goes over and crushs it with it's foot he gives on final look at her and turns away while she fade herself fades into death... down below jon will get stabed through the stomach by a long of steel and using the steel bar the terminator lift him of the ground so it's now eye level with him, noticing he has gizmo dr expostion gave him he pull himself towards the terminator via the steel bar that is currently like a train through a mountain. the terminator doesn't stand their tho he runs at the wall pinning jon against it but john is now close enough to use it and it's a success while he hangs their the t-800 reboots... he order it to carry him up to the machine with some the bar still in his stomach to prevent further bleeding. they get up there but he notices his dead wife on the floor , he flops out of the t-800s arms and makes his way to her mourning her. he notices that the machine has already been activated, now knowing the t-1000 has gone through, he looks down at his wound and ask what his condition and if he can get into the machine to the t-800, he says critical unlikely to survive teleportation he sees the destoryed trigger knowing it doesn't there is no longer a delay detention timer, he screams shit shit shit.... he know one person has to stay behind a trigger it. we here the noises of approaching machines he slowly gets up and give the command. "you go through the machine, you go back , you find Jon Connor, and you protect him...that's a command" the terminator replies affirmative " after jon is secure and only when jon is secure you find cyberdyne and you end skynet before it happens". the terminator gets in place and jon after finish connecting a new trigger is now at the controlls, he hesistants for a moment and looks at the terminator for one last time, and then press the button and machine starts... flashing blue lights and creating a wind as jon looks on and then silence.... is jon holding his wife in his arms aswell as holding the trigger, as we see the first t-800 turn the corner and aim at jon he presses the trigger. the last shots are the complex becoming a field of rubble as the dust settles we go to black... and that was my terminator salvation, personally the further i wrote this the better the name fitted. to see more of my work head over to rewrites_find_a_way read the description and the ideas post as it's a bit different to this sub Reddit.
