Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made

Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.

He proceeded to show it to us in class.

An empty space is marked off with plain wood and plain walls, so that the light drawn into it forms dim shadows within emptiness. There is nothing more. And yet, when we gaze into the darkness that gathers behind the crossbeam, around the flower vase, beneath the shelves, though we know perfectly well it is mere shadow, we are overcome with the feeling that in this small corner of the atmosphere there reigns complete and utter silence; that here in the darkness immutable tranquility holds sway. The "mysterious Orient" of which Westerners speak probably refers to the uncanny silence of these dark places. And even we as children would feel an inexpressible chill as we peered into the depths of an alcove to which the sunlight had never penetrated. Where lies the key to this mystery? Ultimately it is in the magic of shadows. Were the shadows to be banished from its corners, the alcove would in that instant revert to mere void."

We received the following message tied to a stone from the opposite German trenches. —-We’re going to open fire with artillery. We don’t want to do this but we’ve been ordered to. It will come this evening, and we’ll blow a whistle first so you’ll have time to take cover."

Hold me i might faint from amazement

ommmmmmmmmmmmg Annie Wu is my art goddess.

whoa whoa whoa hold up guys. a strong, independant, witty, not over sexualized, WoC superhero???? 

can we say HELL FUCKIN YEH!!!!

This post is making the rounds again for some reason (not complaining). I see new comments akin to “Whoa, is this real?” and “I need this when it comes out!”

Excellent news: It’s a real thing and you can read it! Now! With your eyes! And it’s great! (Can I say that?) All three parts are available digitally, and you might also be able to find it collected in print under BATMAN BEYOND UNLIMITED #18 (from July 2013). As far as I know, the character will be showing up at some point in the current Batman Beyond 2.0 run, so keep an eye on that and ask DC for more if you like Nissa.

AND WHY WOULDN’T YOU? Look at her with her smirky Bat-smirk and Jennifer Connelly eyebrows. Really now.

Here’s another way to read the arc as of today: These issues are collected in the newest Batman Beyond trade paperback. Also, hey, I love you.

I bought this yesterday, and it’s fantasmic! Terry is such a sweetie and Babs omg Babs.

Interviewer: Did you do a lot of your own stunts?

Anthony Mackie: I did a bunch of the stuff leading up to the stunts. I tried to do one stunt and I ran into a parked car, face-first.

Interviewer: The directors were telling me— I asked if there were any close calls and that was the one situation they brought up!

AM: [Laughs] No, but they tricked me. First of all, no one— if I tell you to fly, you’re not going to know how to fly ‘cause as humans, we don’t fly. So they tell me they’re going to raise me up ten feet and let me go. I swing in, land on my feet, and walk and talk…. so they pulled me up ten feet and said ‘how do you feel?’ and I said ‘I feel good!’ But I keep going up! They pull me up forty feet off the ground and I’m like ‘THIS DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT!’ [Laughs] And they let me go. And I’m coming down at like….mach 2, right? And I look at Chris [Evans]’s face and he goes… “You’re going to die.”

Guys, watch this WHOLE THING. He’s fucking hilarious.

scene from the AU where the whalers are a biker gang

The first time Rinaldo tries to get Piece on a bike, she latches onto a lamppost and doesn’t let go.

The second time Rinaldo tries to get Piece on a bike, she bolts up a tree. There’s a lot of shouting, mostly along the lines of “for the love of god, get down” and “there are no seatbelts, I will DIE" and a chase that eventually ends on Euhorn Kaldwin’s rain-beaten granite head.

One bemused fire department and a note from Daud later, Rinaldo convinces Piece to ride just one round - one round - pillion around the block. She sits behind him well enough, though that alone leaves her white-knuckled; when they actually start moving, she seizes him around the neck so hard they nearly veer into a post box. Rinaldo pitches into a flowerbed. Piece smacks the lawn beside him like a shell-shocked starfish.

"Can I please just take the bus," she repeats over and over, while Rinaldo tries to peel her off the grass. "The 24 and 136 line up with most of our hits.  Oh god oh god oh god."

"You cannot just take the bus," says Rinaldo, exasperated. "That’s not what we do."

"Or rollerblade. I’ll rollerblade. The junior Overseers have muffled ones because they aren’t allowed to have derbies. Won one once. Highlight of the year. Still have the uniform and medal."

Rinaldo pinches the bridge of his nose. “So you’ll impersonate an illicit rollerblading Overseer, but you won’t get on a motorcycle.”

A long and muddy silence. Then, “You can’t give something with only two wheels an engine. It’s reckless.”

She will not be convinced to ride pillion again, and squishes the entire way home on foot.

They end up giving her a bicycle.
