About SpN I just hope that Charlie will be back, seriously not kidding when I say I won’t watch if not.
I mean they can’t be making a musical episode without Felicia Day come on!!! And it’s Thompson who’s writing the episode right ? So even more reasons and opportunities!
It was good.
It has a fantastic soundtrack (the “grandiose” kind).
The divinity symbolism around Lucy is quite awesome (especially loved what happened toward the end that has to do with the very beginning - and how it was played by SJ).
She did not killed the taxi driver who didn’t talk English - I saw people being pissed about that when they saw the trailers, and yeah it’s too bad it wasn’t clear enough that she just shot him in the leg (what happens at the hospital is more shocking even if she explains herself after, but in the context it didn’t at all make the statement “white people rule” that it seemed for some in the trailer, in my opinion anyway) - and she actually learns several Asian languages as soon as she could (began 2 seconds after she got in the other taxi).
There was so many languages represented it was awesome actually. More than anything it makes you WANT to learn and talk more languages, who knows what can happened to you haha.
The fact that the 4 names you see at the beginning of the movie are of people of 4 different races. That seriously made me happy. Not often you see white, black americain, asian, and arab (and NOT as a terrorist yes !!) right there together as main characters. The movie is full of so many different kind of people that was beautiful.
I’m also glad she didn’t get raped, coz I saw some post say that, but there was no sexual abuse thank god.
I do regret a few things but man I liked it and I got excited thinking about a potential sequel taking place in a far future, while I got kinda pissed several times and am very disabused about Guardians of the Galaxy (saw Lucy today and GotG yesterday). Really if you can see GotG and say “OMG it was SO jhfgcejqgb kyaa” in spite of the gross sexism and the usual “American culture is the best” it would be freaking unfair to boycott Lucy for some mistakes in it (and some awkward directing choices) - but of course with a movie with a female main character people are so much judging right, it should have been perfect right ? Hahaha.
No seriously go watch it ? Just don’t go thinking it is an action movie about a super heroine, that’s not and you might be disappointed rather than enjoying the movie for what it is. and It is more about some actually interesting philosophical (and metaphysical) questions and theories, and the social rules/conventions we humans created. It has some action, but also “tense moments” and a lot of talking.
Give it a chance ;)
Rest in Peace, Lauren Bacall.
September 16, 1924 - August 12,2014
"I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that."
I’m going to be posting about her a good bit tonight, most likely. And I’m going to assume most people don’t know who she is. She became famous for acting in the 1940’s. As you can see, she was beautiful. She was good friends with Marilyn Monroe and Katherine Hepburn. She was married to one of her co-stars, Humphrey Bogart, and the two were a wonderful couple. She was actually one of the inspirations for Jessica Rabbit. She released an auto-biography called “Lauren Bacall By Myself”. She has a number of awards to her name, including the 2009 Academy Honorary Award. She was a strong woman that, shy as she was, made sure her voice and the voices of all women were heard. Most of my followers most likely will not have heard of her older films, but may know her as the voice of The Witch of the Wastes in the english dub of Studio Ghibli’s Howl’s Moving Castle.
This incredible, inspiring woman passed away today. And it just aches my heart. She certainly had an influence on my life and I aspire to be a person as great as she was. I hope someone is inspired to find out more about this legend. R.I.P, beautiful lady. Thank you for sharing your gift with the world.
A nice advancement in this fight, even if it’s still not perfect of course (as senator Esther Benbassa with her adorable accent reminded, the issue of sexism in school books is still not fixed, ETC, I guess I don’t even have to mention the “gender queer” issues - for lack of better encompassing term).
It was also quite ironic that one of the orators - even if she was for the law - seemed to have the kind of mentality forged by the crazy sexist teachings from the 60’s that rapporteur Virginie Klès quoted.
The law covers issues like : abortion, violence against women (including help for undocumented immigrant women who are running away from forced marriage and/or violent partners), parental leave, equal representation in politics, work places, sport federation boards etc.
Anyway, I’m just glad that it went actually very well - no one voted against the law - and I’m just going to put here Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, France’s minister for women’s rights, glaring at that arrogant and condescending jerk from the UMP :
Pretty sure she wanted to murder him, or at least hurt him really bad, and she kept glaring after he sat down too that was awesome
The Full Moon of July will be a Super Moon. This is when the Moon can appear up to 5 times bigger than normal.
