I'd use this to pimp my writing if I had more than three things to pimp. Mostly it's just fandom stuff.
i think it’s a universal truth that everyone in our generation takes pluto’s losing its planetary status as a personal offense
pluto is smaller than russia. why did we ever even consider it a planet?
BECAUSE IT’S A PART OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM
OHANA MEANS FAMILY
OHANA MEANS NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND
At first I was like
1840s maybe 1850s, a little too *goth* but not so inaccurate I can’t deal with it.
And then I saw the other costumes
1900s Gibson Girl with an Elsa Schiaparelli belt this movie might as well be title HAHAHAHAHAHAHA FUCK YOU OMGTD. The rest of this movie could be fucking flawless but I will never be able to enjoy it because I’ll be picking apart every little inaccurate costume detail.
It is supposed to be a horror movie. Maybe the costumes are the scary part.
IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER YET
LIKE EVERY MARVEL MOVIE, STICK AROUND AFTER THE ANIMATED CREDITS
AND THEN STICK AROUND AFTER THE LONG NORMAL BLACK BACKGROUND CREDITS
THERE ARE TWO ADDITIONAL SCENES
YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THE LAST ONE LIKE YOU MISSED THE SHAWARMA SCENE AFTER THE AVENGERS
Just a note: the longer you stay behind to watch credits, the less time Cinema staff have to clear up the screen.
TELL THAT TO MARVELALSO, JUST A NOTE: THE REASON WHY CREDITS ARE USUALLY LONG IS BECAUSE IT TAKES A SHITLOAD OF PEOPLE AND A SHITLOAD OF EFFORT TO MAKE A FILM.
WHERE WOULD THE DIRECTOR AND HIS/HER ACTORS BE WITHOUT THE HUNDREDS OF CREW MEMBERS THAT BACK THEM UP? WHAT KIND OF SHITTY MOVIE WOULD YOU GET WITHOUT THESE PEOPLE? NO MAN IS AN ISLAND. ESPECIALLY IN FILM.
THESE PEOPLE WORKED REALLY HARD FOR MONTHS AND SOMETIMES EVEN YEARS FOR THAT SHIT YOU JUST ENJOYED FOR ONE AND A HALF TO THREE HOURS. SO THE LEAST YOU COULD DO IS STICK AROUND UNTIL THE CREDITS END.
While thats super great, and all of those people do deserve credit, AS THEATER STAFF WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER THE THEATER UNTILL EVERY SINGLE PERSON HAS LEFT. On a saturday or friday night when the theater is packed, chances are we are VERY STRESS BY THIS because you are preventing us from cleaning the literally five other theaters that need to be cleaned at the exact same time. If it is a slow day please, stick around, watch all the credits, we even understand hanging around for films with ending credit scenes, WE PLAN FOR IT IF THE FILM HAS A POST CREDIT CLIP. BUT LETS BE REAL. YOU DONT CARE ABOUT WHO DID THE CATERING FOR THE FILM. If its very busy, or crowded, or are are obviously waiting for you to leave, please leave!
EXCUSE ME, YES SURE. BUT AS SOMEONE WHO HAS WORKED IN VARIOUS ASPECTS OF FILMMAKING—PRE-PRODUCTION, PRODUCTION, AND POST-PRODUCTION IN BOTH MAINSTREAM AND INDEPENDENT FILMS, I MUST SERIOUSLY REQUEST THAT YOU STICK AROUND UNTIL THE CREDITS END.
WE DON’T ASK FOR YOU TO REMEMBER OUR NAMES, ALL WE WANT IS YOUR ACKNOWLEDGMENT WHICH YOU CAN SHOW SIMPLY BY STICKING AROUND UNTIL THE CREDITS FINISH ROLLING.
I’VE BEEN A WRITER, A DIRECTOR, AN EDITOR, A CINEMATOGRAPHER, A PRODUCTION DESIGNER, A STYLIST, AND A PRODUCTION ASSISTANT. AND LET ME TELL YOU, EACH OF THESE ROLES ARE OF EQUAL IMPORTANCE, AND REQUIRE ALMOST THE SAME AMOUNT OF EFFORT IN THE PROCESS OF FILMMAKING.
THE MOVIES (and TV shows) YOU ENJOY ENTAIL A LOT OF HELP FROM A LOT OF PEOPLE. THESE PEOPLE USUALLY WORK AT LEAST 12-18 HOURS A DAY. AND OUR VERSION OF A “DAY” CAN LAST UP TO 50 HOURS, DEPENDING ON THE DEMANDS OF THE SHOOT. SOMETIMES YOU GET UP AT 1AM ON A WEDNESDAY AND YOU GET HOME AT 9AM ON A FRIDAY. WE DON’T GET TO LEAVE UNLESS THE REQUIREMENTS OF OUR CALL SHEET ARE MET.
IT’S TIRING AND STRESSFUL. WE DEAL WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE AND A LOT OF CIRCUMSTANCES, WE SACRIFICE OUR LIFESTYLES AND RELATIONSHIPS, AND WE LACK A LOT OF SLEEP.
THE MAKING OF FEATURE LENGTH FILMS CAN LAST SEVERAL MONTHS—SOMETIMES EVEN YEARS.
AND SURE, YOU MAY NOT CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO DID THE CATERING OF THE FILM. BUT IMAGINE BEING AWAKE FOR 24 HOURS, EXHAUSTED AND STARVING, AND SOMEONE HANDS YOU A NICE HOT CUP OF COFFEE AND A SANDWICH.
THESE PEOPLE MATTER. THESE PEOPLE MADE THE FILM YOU JUST WATCHED POSSIBLE. AND THE ONLY RECOGNITION THEY GET IS THEIR NAME WRITTEN IN SCROLLING TEXT.
SO I APOLOGIZE IF THE 50-HOUR DAYS WE WORKED WHICH RESULTED IN OUR NAMES BEING DISPLAYED ON THE BLACK SCREEN, TAKE UP 15 MINUTES OF YOUR CLEANING TIME.
BUT WE’VE DEDICATED MOST OF OUR LIVES IN THE MAKING OF THE FILMS THAT KEEP YOUR CINEMAS RUNNING.
MAYBE YOU CAN JUST REQUEST YOUR PATRONS TO NOT BE DOUCHEBAGS AND CLEAN UP AFTER THEMSELVES.
I’M SURE CLEANING OUT MOVIE THEATERS ISN’T SIMPLE, BUT NEITHER IS FILMMAKING.
This! Would you walk out of a live show during the curtain call? Probably not, so stay and watch the credits.
