i want to talk about the emotion in cap 2 because it’s really the first superhero movie that hit me deeply, and i feel like it’s because it didn’t pull back at all. it was honest with me, in a way that a lot of movies — marvel or otherwise — just aren’t. there was no pulling away or shying from the emotion; it hit you hard, right in the gut.

This movie did such a great job of subverting so many tropes that ranged from tired, overdone cliches to the downright dangerous. And it didn’t feel forced or fake at all. It was just from the ground-up “Ok what if real human beings were in this situation” and the result was something way more complex and grounded, no matter how ludicrous or over-the-top the plot got, than we’ve been trained to expect.

ok, ok so this is more than Bucky asking Steve to move in with him:

All you gotta do is shine my shoes, maybe take out the trash…

he’s asking Steve to move in with him rent-free. how much you want to bet Steve was going to art school at the time - so on top of having his mother die, he was going to have to quit school to support himself. And there’s Bucky saying you don’t have to do this alone, let me help with what I have…

#(also for the love of god somebody tell us what year this is supposed to be) (via legete)
hardboiledmeggs and I were discussing this, and she suggested mid-1930s, based on Bucky’s hair (slicked back) and attire. Can’t see it here, but he’s wearing a wide tie, and a (double-breasted?) suit with wide lapels, so I would guess around 1938, which is when the heavily padded shoulders and wide trousers came into vogue (in part due to the popularity of gangster films, which is what I thought of when I saw Bucky’s outfit). For reference, that makes Steve 19 and Bucky 20 when the scene takes places.

I’d just like to state my deep appreciation that someone dated this thanks to fashion history.  God bless fandom.

J. K. Rowling’s confession that she’d come to believe Ron/Hermione was a mistake from the beginning set in motion an unprecedented deluge of author regrets. As a professor, I of course enjoy a privileged position as conduit to the intentions of author-oracles, but in this case they spoke to many others as well.

But not everyone expressed such second thoughts:

"Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein has attracted a wide variety of interpretations, ranging from the Feminist, to the Marxist, to the Psychoanalytic. Some of these interpretations have relied on the scantiest of evidence while others are simply mistaken in their analysis of the period. Ecocriticism reminds us of the importance of nature in our understanding of literary and cultural texts, and this is never more appropriate than in an analysis of Frankenstein."

This morning’s scholarly journal perusing threw up a gem.

Man, I have never seen someone stand in a glass house and throw rocks THAT HARD.

"

Depression is hard to understand, because it is not a consistent state. Depression is rather like a virus, but like a virus, it has its manageable days and its acute, life-threatening flare-ups. You can be in a depression and still laugh at a friend’s joke or have a good night at dinner or manage low-level functioning. You grocery shop and stop to pet a puppy on the corner, talk to friends in a café, maybe write something you don’t hate. When this happens, you might examine your day for clues like reading tea leaves in a cup: Was it the egg for breakfast that made the difference? The three-mile run? You think, well, maybe this thing has moved on now. And you make no sudden moves for fear of attracting its abusive attention again.

But other times…

Other times, it’s as if a hole is opening inside you, wider and wider, pressing against your lungs, pushing your internal organs into unnatural places, and you cannot draw a true breath. You are breaking inside, slowly, and everything that keeps you tethered to your life, all of your normal responses, is being sucked through the hole like an airlock emptying into space. These are the times Holly Golightly called the Mean Reds.

I call it White Knuckling it.

"

Miles and Miles of No Man’s Land, Libba Bray (via babybirched)

"But the stigma of depression is that it comes with the sense that you shouldn’t have it to begin with. That it is self-indulgence or emotional incompetence rather than actual illness."

(via sonchorizos)

whoa.

(via keeperofthehouse)

When it’s White Knuckle Time, you will have to remind yourself to stand in the middle of the subway platform, well away from the edge.”

There is an undertow to depression. It doesn’t take you all at once. It leaves you with some false sense that you are coping. That you are in control. That you have the shore still well in sight, until, at some point, you raise your head to find yourself all alone, battered by rough seas with absolutely no idea which way you should swim.”

 

Jesus, every damn word of this post. It’s remarkable.

film meme » eight female characters [1/8]: Dana Katherine Scully

 ”Don’t think! Just pick up that phone and make it happen!”

I know, I am cheating by choosing a female character that is mainly known as a tv charcter, but she appears in two movies, so for me she counts as a film character as well and in a list of female character she should not be missing. Especially as someone who has her own psychological term, known as “The Scully Effect”.

In an entertainment world where women are disappearing from multiplexes, where men bulk up as superheroes while women don’t eat but sip pink drinks, we need to remember that there was once a very short heroine who hunted monsters and talked about Einstein, who kicked ass and questioned her faith, who went to work with a man she loved but didn’t rip his shirt off over lunch, who didn’t want to believe, but opened herself nonetheless to possibility. We need Scully back, even for a moment.’ [x]
