I’m gonna find and I’m gonna kill every last one of them.Collapse )

I'm just so happy with this announcement. I'm happy that Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker are once again reprising their roles as Ellie and Joel, I'm happy that the composer has returned as well, I'm just so ecstatic about this and I cannot wait for it to come out.

Because it has been on my mind lately, here are some more random Fantastic Beasts thoughts and observations (spoilers obvs):

Do you know anything about the wizarding community in America?Collapse )

As a sidenote, I'm incredibly disappointed that there isn't enough Percival Graves merchandise available. While there is a Pop Figure, his wand, and his tie that you can buy (all which I have), that's pretty much it. There isn't even anything among the amazing Hot Topic exclusives of costume-inspired clothing. Basically, I just really want his fabulous jacket/overcoat, that's all.

++ Ron Glass (Shepherd Book from Firefly) passed away yesterday. It's kind of hard to believe, honestly. It feels like it was yesterday when the excitement over the Serenity movie being made and the entire cast was returning. I may have never met the man but I have heard and seen much about him, from his sardonic sense of humor to his heartwarming moments with the rest of his fellow cast members, to his infectious booming laugh. It's hard to comprehend that a member of the crew is gone, but he will never, ever be forgotten. Rest in peace.

++ 2NE1 has officially disbanded, which adds more salt on the wound since 4Minute also disbanded earlier this year as well. Though I have to admit it wasn't surprising about 2NE1 since CL has been trying to make her American debut and it would be impossible for her to do that while doing a comeback with the group in Korea, whenever that would've been, so I suspected it as much. But 4Minute's disbanding broke my heart because they had just had their comeback, but it was announced of them being discontinued as a group rather abruptly. I know some don't necessarily care about kpop groups, and I only know some of the drama/behind the scenes negotiations from what I read at selective sources but not as closely as more hardcore fans who follow those kinds of stories. But nevertheless, such news is still heartbreaking. I really liked both groups, they both debuted around the same time and both released some amazing bops over the years. Some of my favorites from 2NE1 include: "Fire", "Can't Nobody" and "Follow Me". And from 4Minute: "HuH (Hit Your Heart)", "Crazy", and "Hate". Thank you girls for everything over the years, may your futures be bright and bring you much success.

++ A brand new friending meme has emerged.

++ As mentioned previously, I went to an advanced screening of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them on Monday. Here are my very brief non-spoilery thoughts (full review to come later):

You’re an interesting man, Mr. Scamander.Collapse )

++ While there might not be an Inhumans movie, Marvel is planning a television series instead. I'm actually wondering how it'll coincide with Agents of Shield, if at all. Considering that Daisy Johnson is the main protagonist on that show and that's where her story is being told along with their Inhumans storyline still being a major focus, I think the possibility of crossovers should be expected. Or mentions of what is happening from one another respectively, at the very least.

I was surprised with tickets to an advanced screening of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

I've been feeling rather depressed since Tuesday (as has the rest of the world), so this was an excellent pick-me-up and silver lining to everything that has been happening lately. It was an unexpected surprise, but was definitely a pleasant and much needed one! This will also be my first ever experience attending any kind of advanced screening for anything. I'll probably write a brief reactionary post afterwards, but I'll wait until the movie has officially premiered for everyone on opening weekend to post my full review.

++ The Defenders is currently in production, and some casting news which makes me rather giddy. Basically, aside from Jessica Jones, we'll have Trish Walker, Claire Temple, Misty Knight, Colleen Wing, and Elektra all joining, plus some others I may be missing. On top of that, Jessica Jones will have all women directors for its second season. All the ladies! (✿◠‿◠)

++ Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them premieres next week. I'm only going for one particular purpose (Colin Farrell as Percival Graves) because the thirst is strong, and while I'm interested in certain aspects of the story, I don't think I'll be seeing the rest of the franchise, which has extended from just a trilogy to five films in total. Probably because, aside that one factor in this film, I don't have a strong interest in it as a whole. Also, due to a recent casting decision which may reflect the rest of the franchise, I'm not entirely certain I would even want to continue watching it anyway. Nevertheless, I am going to watch the first Fantastic Beasts film because I've already committed myself to it mainly due to my emotional investment with a character/actor. I've even ordered his wand, have his Pop Figure, and have rewatched this particular clip numerous times. As I said, the thirst is real and I have no shame.

I cannot stand by while innocent lives are lost.Collapse )

I'll reiterate what I mentioned from the previous trailer, this looks absolutely amazing. Every time we get new promotional material I'm just in awe with how good it looks. The cinematography, the era and costumes, how utterly beautiful Gal Gadot looks especially in the Wonder Woman armor, the graceful way the fighting scenes look, the music particularly her theme which always gets me so hyped up, jfc. We've waited so long for Wonder Woman's story to be told on the big screen, and we're finally getting it real soon. What a time to be alive. I'm only hoping that it is as good as the trailers make it seem.

It was recently confirmed that Wonder Woman is bisexual in the comics, and I do hope that, should this film succeed and create a franchise, they'll actually explore more of her sexuality in the future. If not, well, I'm hoping that it will at least spawn more adaptations of her story (television, webseries, etc.) and for them to be inclusive in that sense.

As some have probably already heard yesterday, Vine has been discontinued.

Do it for the Vine: an end of an era.Collapse )

I know this seems ridiculous to post about a discontinued social media app that I never used and that most probably didn't really pay attention to before this announcement, but aside from the hilarious sketches that I would come across every now and then that will no longer be in creation, I'm also appreciative and supportive of content creators who are genuinely passionate and love what they do and want to further themselves into this career that they've made for themselves because of such online platforms. While there are many other places they can migrate to continue their creativity, for some of them this was their starting point.
