One of the best moments of my childhood.

BITCH

ZERO HAD ZERO FUCKS

I can’t even tell you how excited I was that they turned this book into a movie and it was good

I literally have absolutely no complaints with the movie at all. Once, my friend and I did comparisons from the book and the movie, and we found the only major difference was the fact that Stanley wasn’t heavy set when he arrived at the camp in the movie. The majority of the script is raw quotations from the book.
This is my favorite book to movie adaptation and it did everything Percy Jackson, Inkheart, and The Golden Compass didn’t.

yesss this was such a good book and film

And the only reason Stanely wasn’t heavy set was because in the book he loses tons of weight and eventually ends up being almost thin. The director said he didn’t want to force an adolescent boy to lose weight on such a quick filming schedule, and L’bouf’s audition was so spot on, that they decided to go with a thinner Stanely from the beginning

Also the screenplay was wrote by the author

Beautiful things happen when authors have this chance. I wish it happened more.

It sounds wonderful. If only someone had identified the book, movie or author so people not already familiar with it could check it out.

For the record, this movie is Holes, based on the novel of the same name by Louis Sachar.

I am never getting over this costume.

Avengers #54 (1968)

Just for the record, Whirlwind’s ridiculous costume (yes, yes, they’re all ridiculous, but Whirlwind’s — bare chest, green pointy helmet, for those of you who aren’t flange5 — is pretty up there) makes a bit more sense when you know that it’s an updated version of his old outfit.  The one he wore while fighting Ant-Man and the Wasp as The Human Top.  Professional ice-skater by day, thieving supervillain by night.

(Yes, he spun around on his head at supersonic speeds and did criminal mischief.  I am not making this up.)

This is why I say you cannot possibly take those old Ant-Man issues seriously.  Hank and Jan don’t even begin to be anything other than comedy figures until after the Goliath reboot.

If he were a serious collector, he’d want the discontinued Hulk and Iron Man models as well as the never-officially released Rick Jones figure. 
Whatever.

In 1960s comics, the Soviets and the Chinese are just all the same sociopolitical group, because communism. 

Also, Natasha’s outfit is amazing and she’s still a brunette. I wonder when she makes the shift to red hair … don’t tell me. I like the suspense. 

Avengers #29 (1966)

Is the B really for Black Widow? Really?

do you think that if a Romulan wears a bright color the Tal Shiar has them killed?

They’re really not over the twenty-third century yet.  The gold helmets, the the gold-and-red or gold-and-blue uniforms…

The thing that would have made a Fifty Shades of Gray movie starring Emma Watson cool (and, hell, I’ll throw in Daniel Radcliffe; he was supposed to have been cast at one point, wasn’t he?) would have been the two of them pausing every so often to break the fourth wall.

Okay.  This?  What I’m doing here?  This is not okay.

He’s right.  It’s not.

It’s actually really uncomfortable.

Don’t forget creepy.

Oh no.  It’s definitely creepy.

And then just going on with the scene.

Things that make you a nazi:

  • Agreeing with nazi ideologies
  • Being a member of a nazi group

Things that do not make you a nazi:

  • Being Grant Ward

Things Grant Ward has done:

  • been a member of a nazi group since he was a teenager

Things Hydra is not:

  • A nazi group

Things Grant Ward never did:

  • Join Hydra because he agreed with any of their actual ideologies

Things that make HYDRA not a Nazi organization:

  • really strongly believing it enough, apparently it’s like bringing fairies back to life by clapping

Reasons Grant Ward should be seen as not a Nazi even though he murdered people (PEOPLE IS PLURAL) and endangered countless others for an ideology he didn’t even really care about:

  • But he didn’t do it in a NAZI way!
  • Their deaths don’t mean the same thing if he wasn’t a true believer!
  • Look at how sad he was when the puppy got killed!

oh ffs

My #grant ward is nazi scum tag never seems so appropriate as at times like this.

I’m actually concerned for boys who complain about how different girls look without makeup. Like did you think eyeshadow permanently alters a girls eyelid? Are you frightened when people change clothes

Babies have no concept of object permanence

That’s one of the sickest burns I’ve ever read.
