Star Trek Into Darkness Deleted Scene - The Harewoods
so…this isn’t in the movie, but Kirk staring at Carol in her undies and Kirk banging two catgirls is clearly more important.
Priorities of Jar Jar and Co., y’all >_>
And obviously clearly more relevant to the plot and Kirk’s character arc
What I can’t understand is that they wrote and filmed these scenes, which (a) do a very important job of fleshing out Kirk’s character as growing up and growing into his role as captain and (b) show us the family at the end who triggered all the events at the start, so that the little girl and her mother get to be more than disposable elements of Khan’s Roaring Rampage of Vengeance.
Then they cut these for the sake of ‘Kirk in bed with two alien chicks’ and ‘Carol shows us her matching bra and knickers’.
I genuinely don’t get it: if all they think of Kirk’s character is “ladies’ man”, why write these scenes? On the other hand, if they realise that these are important to the audience’s understanding of the characters and the plot, why drop them?
But literally though.
This scene was written. This scene was filmed.
Then someone sat down while the thing was in Avid or Final Cut or Premiere and said, “Nahh. This is BORING.”
Like seeing Kirk ogle a colleague undressing for the SECOND MOVIE IN A ROW wasn’t boring and redundant as hell.
But this crucial part of his character development? Apparently the audience wouldn’t care to see the maturation of the protagonist of the film they just sat down for two hours to watch.
This is a 14 page story I’ve been working on for the past couple months (which is why there’s been a slow down in updates). I hope you like it, I worked pretty hard on it!
THIS IS SO GREAT
The Cube desktop 3D home printer by 3D Systems
Putting this on the Xmas list!
MASS MARKETED 3D PRINTING IS HAPPENING.
I REPEAT, MASS MARKETED 3D PRINTING IS HAPPENING.
DO NOT PRINT A DILDO!
Even the best 3D printers have tiny gaps for bacteria at least, and can cause tiny cuts at worst.
Print a dildo mould and fill it with latex.
Unless you’re printing tiny dildos to put in a bag so when someone is a jerk you can throw tiny dicks at them and tell them to “go eat a dick”. Then by all means, print tiny dicks.
Wizardstan dropping some knowledge
Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters
they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”
And, of course:
"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t."
the one that will always stay with me is “Arthur Dent was grappling with his consciousness the way one grapples with a lost bar of soap in the bath,” i feel like that was the first time i really understood what you could do with words.

only 100 in 5 weeks
man her game is weak
That’s 100 episodes in 35 days.
That’s 2.8 episodes a day.
I’ve had casual watching more intensive than that.
*tumblr collectively laughs*
during school last year i collectively watched an average of eight supernatural episodes a day
this girl needs to step up her game

Behind the Magic - Pacific Rim - The Kaiju
The way ILM brought the Kaiju in Pacific Rim to life is one of the most spectacular things I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing. Everything about the Kaiju is on point and no detail is spared. Even the way they animated the fat jiggling on Leatherback amazes me. I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again: the people at Industrial Light and Magic are truly the best at what they do.
and this wasn’t nominated for a Visual Effects Oscar because….?
