Iconic Kisses: James McAvoy in Penelope!!

Where: Penelope, with James McAvoy playing Johnny and Christina Ricci as Penelope! Why it's so great: Because it's so cute, and James McAvoy is SO good at spontaneous kissing! Be it here or in Atonement (I'll have to make a card for that one soon....) these kiss are too great, and too believable! Also, I love that she has just called him shit and he pulls her back, clearly relieved to be with her! How to get your own: Well, that I cant' really tell you. This kiss is a blend of passion and romance, them being and love but also kind of angry (?) at each other. I don't encourage you to fight, but don't be afraid to just reach for the one you know you're meant to be with, and hope you get something this great in return :)
@ArianaVenti It's totally cute though!!!! Look how WELL he kisses her. That's what I call a kiss. @hikaymm hope you enjoyed :)
@ArianaVenti LOL!!! I hadn't thought of it that way....yikes. I'm gonna go watch this now, thanks for the reminder that it exists @ChristinaBryce
Okay so I haven't seen Penelope yet...but if you watch this on mute this scene looks really creepy until the cute kiss hahah

Movie Love: More James McAvoy, Please
I've already made a card about James McAvoy and his steamy kiss scene in Penelope, but I kind of love him alot and figured that there's no harm in making a card documenting all of his best kiss scenes....right? So, here we go! All aboard the James McAvoy Love train~~~ Atonement w/ Kiera Knightley This is a video of allllll the best scenes from Atonement, set to a Selena Gomez song so what could be wrong with this?! If you haven't seen Atonement, it's a total spoiler warning for you so watch carefully!! Becoming Jane I have so many favorite James McAvoy scenes in this movie, but these are my favorite two 'kiss' ones! First, James McAvoy LOOKING at Anne and just knowing that they needed to be together, confessing he is yours, can you say swwwwwwooooon? Second, him trying to get her back after being incapable of living without her. Again, sa-woon. Thank you, James. Starter for 10 Not the first kiss I'd choose from James, but it's definitely memorable!!! The way he takes advantage of that second kiss...yep. Cutie. Wanted with Angelina Jolie Okay, I couldn't find a better video than this one (sorrryy!!) but you still get the point. Even though Angelina is pretty much just doing him a solid here after he has to deal with his girlfriend being with his best friend, it's a pretty awesome scene. Yes, Barry, James McAvoy IS a man. Penelope Because I wanted to show it one more time :) And lastly, a cheesy fan edit of James McAvoy romance scenes to the ever-classic Kiss Me. Enjoy!! Maybe I'm just being needy, but I'm ready for a new James McAvoy movie! I know he has Frankenstein and X-men coming up, but I can't help but want just a few more.
Disney Princesses Singing In Their Native Languages
English is not the native tongue of Disney Princesses. Everyone has grown up with Disney Princesses because they are the most innocent form of childhood entertainment. With the fantastic movies comes even better songs which make them so appealing. Your infatuation with them carries on into adulthood and before you know it, you're sitting in your living room watching the movies singing along with your own children. Crazy right? Well, here's the thing, English is the default language, not the native one. All Disney Princesses have come from other countries other than Pocahontas who was a Native American in North America (present day USA). It brings up a really interesting change because when you watch the Disney movies in their native languages, it has an entirely new meaning because it's authentically and historically correct. Disney Americanizes our movies through using English and we forget that languages play a huge role in presenting emotions, interactions, conversations, and without a doubt, our singing. One of the biggest trends on the internet is hearing a Disney Princess sing her hit song with her own native finesse instead of a defaulted English one. Enjoy and really take notice on the differences in emphasis and fluidity of the lyrics. Because of changed language, the songs also have different lyrics to fit the melody which slightly alters the song even if it has a similar universal meaning. Disney is genius. What do you think?
You're Excited for Victor Frankenstein but You Don't Know Why
You remember reading Mary Shelly's Frankenstein when you were in community college. Actually, you don't really remember reading it at all. You were too busy playing Solitare on the iPod Touch you stole from someone at your job (see: your actual job in the electronics section of Toys 'R Us). The memories you do have of this classic, though, aren't that clear. You remember holding your dog-eared copy in one hand while holding the leash to an actual dog (your dog) in the other hand. You can't really remember anything specific about the book other than what -- pretty much -- everyone knows about Frankenstein*. So when the trailer for Victor Frankenstein was released today, you kind of felt this strange excitement that was also fueled by some apprehension. Yes, sure, you'd love to see Frankenstein on the big screen (especially if it isn't that weird, sexy, superhero Frankenstein that came out last year) but instead, something with more depth. Unfortunately, that isn't the case. They decided to make Victor Frankenstein and Igor handsome and sexy and cute. And maybe there's something wrong with you because you see something wrong about this. I mean, you always pictured Dr. Frankenstein as a small, crazy looking fellow. Maybe he wore glasses and not the type of glasses that help frame your face or the type of glasses that make you, somehow, cooler. But the type of glasses that make other people call you a nerd, a geek, or a dork. And maybe Doc had some kind of weird cane and only ate string beans and almonds. You don't really know. All you knew was that you didn't see him with James McAvoy's visage. And you thought Igor was kind of a dumb guy with a sort of, probably, maybe dumb face if that makes any sense to you (I know it does) and not a guy with a strong jaw like Daniel Radcliffe's. But you are excited to see the actual monster. You know, Frankenstein's Monster. That's something that has always interested you. Even when you were barely reading while walking your beautiful dog under the sun. You aren't really sure, why (since you can barely remember what was between the covers of the actual book) but you identify with the monster. Or, at least you did at the time. So there's that. As you procrastinate and wait for time to drain off the clock you'll try and remember what exactly happened in the book. Not only to remember what it felt like to walk and read at the same time but so when the film finally comes out, you'll get to scrutinize it for not being true to something (the way all Internet people do and honestly, fitting in is more important to you than anything). Victor Frankenstein will be in theaters this Thanksgiving. Novemeber 25th, 2015. *You know the story. Frankenstein makes a monster out of human parts and electricity and then no one likes him because he's different (no one will ever like you if you're different remember that) so he runs away to the forest or something -- sorry, your memory isn't that great -- and starts to have an existential crisis. He eventually sits in the forest so long and writes a bunch of books that no one cares to read and no one knows that Frankenstein's monster is actually, well, pretty smart. But he's scared of sharing that part of himself with the world. His fear mostly comes from the fact that no one's ever really wanted to read his work or even hang out with him. Remember, no one likes you because you're different and you need to stop being so goddamn different, you need to remember what that you need to conform to what people expect of you, so please, please, please, Paul stop writing all those goddamn books that you keep unpublished under your bed and get out of the house and get a job. You aren't worth anything. What happened to you. What happened to you. What happened to you.
