I want an animated TNG series.
so apparently karl urban called abrams out on all of bones’ metaphors and he said “can we take a few of these out so i won’t be known as the ‘metaphor man’” but they kept the metaphors in and also added kirk’s “enough with the metaphors” line without karl knowing
this makes the scene 800 times funnier omg
If I was a famous author I would publish a book with ten different endings which all went to print with varying degrees of rarity, but not tell the fans about it so that I could watch their confusion as they disagree over how the story ended. Then when they figured it out I would ‘come clean’, telling them that I had released eleven alternate endings and watch them panic again as they all try to find the last ending.
This is perfect.
when will reboot star trek show us sulu’s obsession with plants this is important to me
“Everyone on deck 9 section 17 knows when you are having intimate relations.”
I would just like to point out that the beginning and end of Spirited Away creep me out in the most delicious way possible. I’ve always been a fan of fairy tales, and not just the Grimm and Anderson stuff, almost all my life. Like the honestly faerie court stories.
Themes you see in those reflect strongly in this movie, and comparing them side by side just makes it that much more stark.
Often times you hear that if you get sucked into the fairy realm, you shouldn’t eat their food. It gives them power over you. More often than not, heroes finally escape the fairy realm after what they perceive to be a very short time (a night or a week)…
…only to find that seasons or years have passed.
‘Hey, it’s all dusty in here. Is this someone’s idea of a joke?’
CRAPPING SHIT I WHY HAVE I NEVER NOTICED THIS
This always freaked me out a little as a kid. Like the OP, I couldn’t help but wonder how long REALLY passed. I always pretended it was something like a week but… Judging by that moss, I can’t say for sure.
A week? Try much MUCH /MUCH/ longer. The plants are a good indicator but a better one is the statue. We’re seeing it from the same angle in each shot. Look in the first one before she enters, it’s not NEW but you can tell what it is.
Now look at the second frame. It’s so eroded it’s just a dull, flat stone.
That thing is solid stone, that must have taken up to, if not more than, a DECADE to wear down that much.
Not to mention that there are new trees next to the car. Just remember how long it actually takes for trees to grow real quick.
Evidence is suggesting they were in there for maybe around 20-30 years.
I’d like to point out that “not eating from the other world” is a constant theme in many stories.
A most well-known example i can think of is from the tale of Hades and Persephone, when Persephone eats from Hades’ feast.
And the stone is also an indicator of its own. a milestone if you will; in film it is used to represent another dimension.
e.g. both the food and the milestone have also been used in Pan’s Labyrinth.
NGL, this always really crept me out as a kid. It’s cool to think about it, but I tend to worry about how they dealt with their lives afterwards.
all everyone can talk about is the new trek
i work in the trekdome
