I AM A LITTLE WORLD MADE CUNNINGLY

Resident Ice Queen and Media Snob from The Hanging Gardens ♏


I never dreamed the sea so deep,
The earth so dark; so long my sleep,
I have become another child.
I wake to see the world go wild.

Happy 27th anniversary guys!

The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.

 I highly recommend reading the entire article. 
from the infographic:
Among the top 100 domestic grossing films:
only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
0% of protagonists are women of color
0% of protagonists are LGBTQ
1% of protagonists are people with a disability

The film-makers only used CG effects when absolutely necessary, and to enhance practical effects for the creatures rather than replace them completely. Even the smaller female alien that appears before the credits was a petite woman in a creature suit. A puppet-type head was used for some of the attack shots wherein Moses is suddenly bitten. The creature’s head was a carefully constructed mask that had no eyes, and even the glowing mouthful of large, carnivorous teeth were achieved by animatronics (including twelve “servos”) rather than added in post. The film-makers admit that it did help save money, but also had an unexpected benefit. The actors, rather than reacting to something that wasn’t there, admitted that they were genuinely and unexpectedly frightened by the look and movements of creatures actually present (especially during chase sequences when a creature/creatures would pursue them at full speed). Nearly every actor said they felt especially intimidated— many surprisingly so— by the physical presence in a way they would not have if the creatures had been added digitally later. The same went for the majority of the settings; the director said it added authenticity and atmosphere to shoot on a set rather in front of a green screen. [SOURCE]

If you are looking for the most heart-felt zombie short film, I recommend “Cargo”.

It’s about a man’s struggle to save his baby daughter in the middle of all this havoc. What he comes up with is both clever and upsetting. 

WATCH CARGO

OKAY JUST WATCHED THIS, THE SOLUTION WAS AMAZING WATCH IT OHMYGOD WATCH IT

Pumzi - dir. Wanuri Kahiu // Kenya

In a dystopian future 35 years after an ecological WWIII  has torn the world apart, East African survivors of the devastation remain locked away in contained communities, but a young woman in possession of a germinating seed struggles against the governing council to bring the plant to Earth’s ruined surface.

The main character is a museum curator in the future and also yes I would like see this now please

THERE IS NOTHING ABOUT THIS I DON’T LIKE

The complete short film is on youtube and it’s really good and the end kind of took my breath away. 

GET INTO THIS

If you think about it Ursula was actually really nice because she only promised Ariel legs, and she gave her really nice legs that matched her body type and skin color when she could have just as easily given her goat legs

The sex drive of men is something we are all comfortable with in this country. It’s funny and hormonal and slapstick (American Pie), it’s potentially uncontrollable, maniacal/homicidal (American Psycho), it is adulterous and is insatiable (American Beauty), it is fun and social (American Graffiti) and it is entrepreneurial (American Gigolo). But women? No. NC-17. XXXX. Stop it with the moaning.

foreshadowing in the buffyverse (part 2)
dawn’s arrival in to the world and buffy’s exit from it

This is one of the more well known examples of foreshadowing in the show but also the most intricate. Dawn’s presence is first hinted at in 3x22 (“Miss Muffet”) by Faith and is then referred to as such again by one of Glory’s victims in 5x2. The 730 stands for the number of days in two years. Two years pass exactly between this episode and 5x22 (withing the show) when Dawn is destined to die (hence the countdown). This number shows up on Buffy’s clock in 4x22, however Tara points out that it is “completely wrong” as one year has passed and now only one year remains of the “countdown”. Faith mentions “little sis” in a dream in 4x15. Both these scenes take place in Buffy’s bedroom which is the first place the audience ever sees Dawn. And Tara’s warning (originally intended to be delivered by Faith for continuity) “be back before Dawn” is given in the previous episode to Dawn’s first appearance. Faith is also responsible for foreshadowing the time of Buffy’s death. During the bodyswap of 4x16, Faith uses a credit card (either Buffy or Joyce’s), with the expiration date of May 2001. Buffy’s death takes place in the same month of the same year and this episode (5x22) aired on May 22 2001, almost 730 days (so roughly two years) after 3x22 first aired on television.
