New read! Now that I’m finally reaching the end of my college career, I can get back into casual reading!
White privilege is your history being taught as a core class and mine being taught as an elective.
please let them know.
white privilege is your history being taught as a core class, and mine being banned because it would promote "the overthrow of the U.S. government, foster racial resentment, and advocate ethnic solidarity."
I love the way that the lights are gelled in this still from Minority Report. Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski discusses this shot, and many others, in these 11 Steven Spielberg-directed films.
In a four-star review of Spielberg’s 2002 sci-fi film, Roger Ebert spent a paragraph praising this “virtuoso shot” of Tom Cruise and Samantha Morton, calling it an image “that’s powerful and yet bafflingly simple.” “That’s nice of Roger,” says Kaminski. “It’s just a gorgeous shot of two lost people. I used a bluish side light, which to some degree glamorized them, but also made them very lonely and alienated from the rest of the scene. You work in metaphors through lights and composition, and the worst thing for me is to see a movie that doesn’t have that. You see a cinematographer’s work and there are no visual metaphors, or they are so afraid to create a style that it just becomes this nothing.” Kaminski washed the film in moody blues and grays as an homage to film noir, noting, “It’s a big palette, the movie screen. I dare to compare myself to painters, but I just have a bigger canvas to adapt to. If you don’t like my painting, don’t see the movie, you know?”
For people that say I haven’t changed in the last 4 years… #picstitch #belatedtbt

10/11 paralells: murder+genocide
Remember when genocide and killing were things that the Doctor frowned upon, and would only do with a heavy heart? Remember when the Doctor tried to talk the villains into doing the right thing? Remember when the doctor had morals?
£500 says that Moffat never watched The Doctor’s Daughter. Oh but wait, he did request that they re-write the ending for Jenny to come back to life, in order for him to do fuck all with the character. But in retrospect, that’s probably a good thing.
Ok.. So 10th killing thousands of Daleks doesn’t count?
You need to know only one thing about the doctor, he is a bloody hypocrite.
10th being all no killing and no genocide?
6 killed all the Vervoids. 1 AND 2 killed all the Daleks. 4 was eventually ready to kill all the Daleks, but DID kill all the Cybermen. 7 killed all the Daleks and their homeworld AND all the Cybermen.
In other words…
And if you want to point out the logic of “Well, those are all special circumstances.” OF COURSE they are. So is the situation depicted in the gifs. The two sides were killing each other for no reason. The war didn’t have to end in genocide and killing and the Doctor was going to do everything in his power to stop it.
Not to mention the gif from Day of the Moon doesn’t make any sense to use as a “The Doctor condones genocide!!!” crap. He’s waving around a screwdriver. River is the one shooting everything.
