THIS SCENE WAS SO POWERFUL
I don’t know where this is from, but that’s actually really strong.
please somebody tell me what this is from
The L Word
Jenny Schecter, ladies and gents. (I met Mia Kirschner some time ago and am glad for the opportunity to tell her how powerful this scene was for me).
Nowadays the princesses all know kung fu, and yet they’re still the same princesses. They’re still love interests, still the one girl in a team of five boys, and they’re all kind of the same. They march on screen, punch someone to show how they don’t take no shit, throw around a couple of one-liners or forcibly kiss someone because getting consent is for wimps, and then with ladylike discretion they back out of the narrative’s way.
On the posters they’re posed way in the back of the shot behind the men, in the trailers they may pout or smile or kick things, but they remain silent. Their strength lets them, briefly, dominate bystanders but never dominate the plot. It’s an anodyne, a sop, a Trojan Horse - it’s there to distract and confuse you, so you forget to ask for more.
All cats love boxes!
Interviewer: Have you used your Oscar as weapon?
Jennifer: Yes, as a imaginary one.
One day someone is going to hug you so tight, that all of your broken pieces will stick back together.

can we talk about Legolas in the back tho
I feel like I need to rewatch the entire series just focusing on Legolas.
It’s worth it.
Did Orlando Bloom spend the entirety of the series trolling with his facial expressions?
YES. YES HE DID.
