Johanna does not have time for this Hunger Games nonsense
she’s just one of those contestants who is constantly having her mouth, hands, and other parts blurred out on television.
if anyone ever tells you to man up, just knock them unconscious and as they lie motionless of the ground, lean over them and whisper
Pentecost Shatterdome, Dirty Work Division: Mori, Becket & Hansen jr
(seriously, do not try to fuck the whelps. you don't wanna get in that mess.)
a vaguely organized crime-/spy-ish pacific rim au where the kaiju are still an alien species but not big like city blocks (inspired by this).
Blame director Francis Lawrence and author Suzanne Collins.Everything went exactly as planned — until Lionsgate execs saw the day’s footage. Apparently, Lawrence had not informed the studio that he was inserting two F-bombs into their PG-13 film; the MPAA generally only allows one before slapping a film with an R rating. So they rang up producer Nina Jacobson — the only time the studio did so during production — and asked her, Um, what are you doing?“And Nina said, ‘No, no, no, they’re going to bleep it out,’” said Lawrence with a smile. “‘Don’t worry. We’re not going to mess with the rating. Don’t worry about that.’… It got the biggest laughs on set when [Malone] just went, you know, crazy. We just said this is from the Capitol, and the Capitol’s airing it, and the Capitol would have bleeped it all out.”It was a delicious moment for Malone as an actor, but she also appreciated how it further drilled into the story’s larger themes of media manipulation — and how uncomfortably close the Capitol can be to our own world. After all, Catching Fire is filled with people being slaughtered (bloodlessly) — not to mention Johanna’s elevator strip tease. Yet saying “fuck” out loud is verboten.“It’s such an easy way in to understanding the mentality of the Capitol without having to do too much nudge nudge wink wink,” said Malone. “Particularly in the society that we live in, there’s like 60,000 different porn sites, but people get thrown off of Instagram because they show an artistic nude. It’s just so weird the way that we censor ourselves, and that there’s actually no balance between the two, so I think it’s a really great way for a generation to see that as like, ‘Wow, even at this level, they’re still being censored.’”
THE ANTICIPATION FOR THIS WAS UNREAL.
In other news, I freaked myself out again for what appears to be the 2837912th time in my 21 years on this planet, and my thesis is NOT as FUBAR’d as I thought after talking to my post-doc.
