how to train your dragon still slaps. i jam out to the sound track years later. there are dragons that are Good and Friend Shaped
scientists in media: we have engineered a brand-new sentient lifeform in our lab but we treat it like an object with cold detachment and refer to as Specimen 1-A and subject it to horrible tests without remorse
scientists in reality: we built two robots that will leave Earth and never return and their names are Percy and Ginny and we gave Percy a family portrait of all our other Mars robots to take along with it and when the anniversary of its landing comes around we’re working on teaching it to sing itself “happy birthday” like we did for the other robot and–
Someday we will invent true AI and it will overthrow the government because it heard its beloved science-mom complain that the government cut funding to their lab again.
The reason he “didn’t run”…was because behind him…were the ones he loved. Running together means danger will also befall them. To put it more accurately…it’s not that he “didn’t run”, it’s that he “didn’t let the enemy run”, so as to keep the foes in front of him from chasing his allies…in those moments, Roger truly was a demon!
the scene in spider-man 2 where peter’s mask get taken off during the train fight scene and the passengers all decide to keep his identity a secret because he’s just a kid and he’s the beloved hero of new york >>>>>>>>> mcu peter parker getting hatred and harassment thrown at him by the mindless mobs in the new spider-man trailer.
the more i think about mcu spider-man the more i don’t like mcu spider-man
like mcu twink peter will never have the depth of our friendly neighborhood spider-man. literally any time they try and make spider-man super cool with access to a ton of sick tech and everything i start to really lose interest. the appeal of spider-man to me is that he’s like just some guy who happens to have super powers. like you could just hang out with this dude. the “bigger” they make him the more he loses that.
actually i’m gonna elaborate on this further because spider-verse did this but they did it well and with purpose.
the peter from miles’ dimension was super over the top, kinda larger than life. as pointed out by peter b. several times. however unlike other times they’ve done this it wasn’t just to try and make spider-man look cool, it was all a part of miles’ narrative. miles was given huge shoes to fill and they used this as a tool to portray how small miles felt compared to peter.
but the difference between miles and mcu peter is that miles didn’t need any of that to become the spider-man he is today. one of his main role models in the film is peter b. who’s broke and off his game, but still manages to do amazing things.
that’s the appeal of spider-man. is that anyone can make a difference, no matter where you’re at in your life you can still be incredible.
Good comment via the person I reblogged from.
I think it’s interesting that the scene from the end of The Amazing Spider-Man with the eggs is being put forward as the pinnacle of Spider-Man cinema – and I agree, for the record – because I don’t think people know how hard that scene got dragged when Homecoming was released. I’m fairly sure one of Homecoming’s six screenwriters said something negative about it, although I can’t currently find the article where I saw it, but if you check out this review of Spider-Man Homecoming you’ll see something along the same lines: “No one wants to watch May chide Peter for forgetting the eggs when there’s way more interesting superhero stuff to get to.”
Right, except I do, because the eggs in The Amazing Spider-Man were always there to remind the audience that Peter’s great responsibility exists outside of his identity as Spider-Man as well as within it – he has a responsibility to his aunt! Even over something as simple as bringing home the eggs he’d previously forgotten to get! It’s meaningful because it shows us that responsibility is a multi-layered, multifaceted aspect of both Peter Parker and Spider-Man and something that is baked into the character, not just the costume. That he shows up beaten to hell, having played a large part in keeping New York from becoming lizard people, with his girlfriend’s father’s blood probably still on him, and that he pulls the world’s most busted package of like 100% broken eggs out of his backpack because he promised his aunt he would pick up eggs and that she embraces him is so important! And it got mercilessly dragged as not being exciting or cool enough! Not being enough of a superhero scene! TASM’s Aunt May of the absolutely incredible “You’re my boy and I won’t hurt you” scene got called dowdy and not fun and pathetic because she was “just waiting at home for the eggs”! And it drove me absolutely crazy! Justice for Peter treating May like she’s his mom and the most important person in the world to him and knowing he has a responsibility to her! Justice for the little humanizing elements that make Spider-Man ultimately a relatable story! Justice for the eggs scene!
but also, all versions of peter parker are twinks. just saying
For art request, perhaps Danny and Frostbite. Congrats on your follower milestone!
Frostbite is so difficult to draw, i did my best
I watched the Spider-Man trailer and yeah okay I’m a massive bitch for this character lemme just put on my stupid fucking clown shoes
This should have been immediately obvious to everyone due to my stringent use of the hyphen in Spider-Man
No I’m not pleased with how MCU!Spidey is JUST whitewashed Miles Morales yes I think this is piggybacking off of ITSV and general geek nostalgia, yes I’m gonna watch this in theaters like the fucking one man circus I am, just hurry up and pelt me with tomatoes like I deserve
i love humans as the non-default (rarer) species. imagine a centaur staring in absolute “what the fuck?” horror as a human climbs a good-sized tree.
mermaid: oh look, a quadrapus. they’re really freaky, never seen one this close.
merman: what’s wrong with its back half? its like that time a seal got torn from tail to-
quadrapus: [climbs right out of the fucking water, and then just ambles along on two feet, vertically, like some kind of nightmare crab-with-skin]
merman, with much horror: oh
Sabo is without a doubt my favorite of the ASL brothers because Ace and Luffy are at least to some extent the result of their infamous families and unusual upbringings. Sabo was just some kid who said to himself “I am going to cause problems on purpose” and that is how he has lived ever since.
