Welcome to your life There’s no turning back Even while we sleep They will find you Acting on your best behaviour Turn your back on mother nature Everybody wants to rule the world
It’s my own design It’s my own remorse Help me to decide Help me make the most Of freedom and of pleasure Nothing ever lasts forever Everybody wants to rule the world
There’s a room where the light won’t find you Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down When they do I’ll be right behind you So glad we’ve almost made it So sad we had to fade it Everybody wants to rule the world
“There’s always been a sort of bullshit message out there that was conveyed as supposed conventional wisdom: that women will root for a man as a protagonist and identify with him, but men won’t root for or identify with a woman protagonist. I think that’s a whole lot of B.S. and I hope that this movie has helped show that it’s a bunch of B.S.”—Nina Jacobson, Hunger Games producer (via seriouslyamerica)
“I’ve become skeptical of the unwritten rule that just because a boy and girl appear in the same feature, a romance must ensue. Rather, I want to portray a slightly different relationship, one where they two mutually inspire each other to live– if I’ m able to, then perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love.”—Hayao Miyazaki (via nitrateglow)
You know butt pose: It’s when female characters on movie posters are posed juuuuust so, enabling the audience a view of both her chest and her derriere, while any male characters get to face the camera and be all action-y. Here are some Avengers-y examples (scroll down). And a more recent one from Divergent. Here’s another. And another. And another. And another. Tauriel has no truck with that nonsense. Now strike a pose, Legolas! ( via SuperHeroHype)
The school introduced me to the church, St Patrick’s old cathedral on Mott St. I found some peace there. I found a little bit of protection. Because in Queens, the house wasn’t a big house, but to a child, you could always hide out a little bit if there’s problems in the family, people coming over - you could always kind of disappear. [In the apartment in Little Italy] you couldn’t disappear, and you couldn’t say anything, because you’re the youngest. It was pretty tough.
So I go in the church and became fascinated by the rituals of the mass. I can’t tell you, inside that cathedral, the sense of peace. It was quite amazing.
Of course, my father didn’t know what the hell to do with me (I hardly saw him), so he was forced to take me to the movies. In fact, I got to see him more in Manhattan than I did in Queens. He took me to the movies all the time. And the ritual of going to the movies with your father, it didn’t even matter the movie that you saw. And there was a sense of peace there too. You have faith when you go in the church, and you have faith when you go in the movie theater too. And because of that, you’re taken on a road, you’re taken on a trip, you’re taken on a journey. The posters outside sell you dreams, you know, and you go in there and the dream is real. And then if you’re sharing these very strong emotions with your father whom you don’t really talk to very much…this was the main line of communication.
