"The Last Five Years" Film, With Jeremy Jordan and Anna Kendrick, Will Premiere at TIFF

YASS

Noooo why is this right before my GRE

Well that’s just the release date at this festival.  So reviews will start coming out then, but its theater wide-release date hasn’t been announced yet.  Hopefully not too long after that, because I have an intense need to hear Anna Kendrick sing all of Cathy’s songs that only grows as time passes.

#remember how this movie took female stereotypes and crushed them into a million pieces

casual reminder that Elle Woods scored a 179 on the LSAT, which is one point shy of a perfect score.

Casual reminder that Whatshisface here had family connections and was a legacy and shit, whereas Elle Woods came out of nowhere.

casual reminder that Elle Woods actually had an amazing background in real life issues that people dismissed as unimportant but managed to not only learn the law, but learned how to apply the law.

Casual reminder that Elle Woods used her lawyer skills to save a woman from an abusive relationship and also save another woman from trumped up murder charges and basically what I’m saying is you go, girl, go get ‘em Elle Woods, thank you for this movie.

what’s fantastic about this movie is that it’s not that fucked up brand of feminism where the girls who arent like other girls and sip tea and read hemingway look down on the blonde party sluts. the message of the movie is like, you can be blonde and attractive AND enjoy stuff like shopping and partying and you can still be smart and kick ass!!!

I LOVE EVERYTHING IN THIS POST

Let’s also note that in this movie, when Elle Woods gets to Harvard and everyone is either excluding her or judging her for her apparent lack of intelligence, she does the same damned thing she did to get there: she works her ass off to show them that no matter what the fuck they think, she earned her spot in class and she’ll keep earning it. “I’ll show you how valuable Elle Woods can be,” and then she fucking does. Every time she’s humiliated or made to feel less than, Elle puts her head down and barrels forward, and the one time it seems insurmountable, the time a man she respected, who she thought valued her brain beforetits and ass, tells her that her brain is not enough, she’s reminded (BY A BADASS LADY LAW PROFESSOR, LET’S NOT FORGET) that she’s Elle Fucking Woods and she’s not one to let one stupid prick ruin her life, which is like the manifesto of the entire movie: no matter what men think Elle Woods is, she is not just that one thing. 

As for Felicity, the showrunner revealed further “Arrow” season 3 spoilers when he said: “We have had a backstory for her for over a year now that we keep saying, ‘This is the episode where we’re going to do it,’ and we don’t.”
“But this is the year we’re going to do it. That script is getting worked on as we speak…

I was going to end that previous post with “Everything is looking up for my ladies!” but I hadn’t heard any promising Felicity-centric news.  Now I can.  Sara, Laurel, Thea, and Felicity — everything is looking up for my ladies!

He’s got a relationship cooking with Laurel where it’s like “You catch ‘em, I cook ‘em.” Because she’s a DA, he’s setting them up and she’s knocking them down. It’s a great deal of fun to see them have this completely new relationship.

ngl, SUPER EXCITED about this possible new brotp with Oliver and Laurel

This is what I want. I want them to be friends! Actual friends with a working relationship.

Everything I’ve head about season 3 so far is good news.  An episode entitled “Sara.”  Sara in at least 3 episodes.  More info about the league of assassins.  Flashback with Tommy!  Not to mention Thea primed and ready for a transformative arc.  Laurel actually in the loop.  After the great season 2 finale, I thought Arrow had set itself up for its best season yet.  These teasers give me hope that’s the case.

All you need to know about Sansa in this book is that she has a direwolf – a giant, monstrous wolf, a half-mythological monster, a killing machine – and she names it Lady.

Repeat after me, folks: romantic plotlines don’t ruin female characters.

A female character isn’t weak because she has normal human emotions. She isn’t anti-feminist because she has vulnerabilities. There’s a difference between a female character existing entirely to be in love with the male character and a female character who happens to have a romantic subplot as part of her story.

It isn’t feminist to insist that female characters have to be “badass” unfeeling robots, detached from absolutely anything considered “feminine,” including, apparently, emotions. Sure, we don’t want female characters to be damsels in distress, but swinging in the other direction, to cardboard-cutout-badass-making-quips, isn’t much better. Good female characters appear human. And sorry, romance-haters, but love is a part of that.
