EVERYONE WHO REBLOGS THIS POST BY AUGUST 20TH WILL GET A PIECE OF ART IN THERE INBOX BASED ON THEIR BLOG
Why do you care so much about a movie? It's just a movie and they are just actors, if you have such a problem with it don't go see it. Cause production companies have the money/power to make what they want how they want. Is historically inaccurate yes there are a lot of movies that are. Doesn't mean you throw a tantrum on your keyboard. Love your blog have a great day. <3
no, no, no. and these are some of the reasons why.
history is… it’s fucking amazing. it’s filled with drama, passion, romance, intrigue, treason, murder, war, all that shit that movies thrive on. hell, half the time the actual history is more interesting than the movies that they make of it, and sometimes things have been changed because what actually happened in history is so unbelievable that audiences would think the writers were making it up.
beyond that, there is literally no reason whatsoever for writers to not be as historically accurate as possible. no reason at all.
"but cheyenne," sounds a cry, "people don’t know any better!"
and y’know what? they don’t. and do you know whose fault that is?
movies like Pompeii, movies like Exodus, movies like The Ten Commandments and Argo and Tombstone and 300 and Marie Antoinette.
the vast majority of people pull their knowledge of history from fiction. from the movies they see on the big screen to the tv shows they indulge in late at night, to the books they read on the couch or in a chair or on the floor. and then most of them walk away thinking that what they just saw, what they just read, actually happened how their fiction said it did, subconsciously or not. and there is just no reason for that. there’s no reason why they can’t pull in actual historians to help on the films, and there’s no reason for them to ignore the historians they do pull in, which is so often done.
there’s no reason why people can’t go to historical fiction movies and walk away not only with a fantastic (and true!) story, but with a historically accurate one, and a piece of understanding for the time period. that writers and movie-makers continue to disregard history like they do is pure laziness, and it’s disrespectful, and i don’t need to explain why that is.
little details? y’know what, most historians will let that slip. but to fuck up movies like Pompeii as much as they did? to screw something up as fundamental as the volcanic eruption itself? to continuously get the gladiator uniforms wrong for movies based on the lives of gladiators? and then to get the social structures of that time wrong as well? it’s gross. it’s lazy. and i’m so, so tired of seeing it.
i want to go to movies and enjoy them as much as the next person. i don’t actually enjoy “[throwing] a tantrum at my keyboard.” but “[having] the money/power to make what they want how they want” shouldn’t actually be a hall pass to do whatever they want. it isn’t only disrespectful (and it is, it very much is, please go look at the actual story Argo was based on if you don’t believe me, because that movie was fucking ridiculous), it’s dangerous. it’s the power of erasure.
and they do erase. they erase the people, the events, the history.
and there’s absolutely no reason for it.
Prince of Egypt is more historically accurate than this Exodus movie is shaping up to be. And it’s a damn shame they’re casting all white people in what could have been a groundbreaking movie.
Person A of your OTP has a super casual way of throwing out “will you marry me” when they agree with something person B says or just really enjoys one of their jokes. B, who has been crushing on A for a long time now, doesn’t really find the faux proposals very amusing and always rolls their…
this is stupidity as an art form and I actually kinda want to see this
THE SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS MOVIE: SPONGE OUT OF WATER - Official Trailer (2015)
I’m legitimately terrified.

This is very, very good advice. You learn more about who someone really is when they are under stress or in an emergency than in a dozen calm years.
Stick him with an infant or toddler for an afternoon.

I’m assuming the outbreak has begun already so just in case you or someone you know gets infected, here’s a transparent .gif for your blog
August 1st, is that still happening? Are we still writing Croatoan on our hands/arms?
Yes, actually, August 1-7 for the day Kansas City was emptied out of humans (1-3 roughly since evacs are never fast), and the canon days Dean was there (4-7)
OML just one day left :D <3
Im now back in Columbia as Elizabeth, I pulled some ninja shit back in Rapture though XD in the Manta Ray lounge I used the air grabber, Tranq darts, Gas darts, sneaky knock out and years of luring AI's into traps, the only way it could have ended better was if Lizzy turned round and said "I'm Bat-girl...."
xDD glad you’re enjoying it
Apparently some vegans are telling people not to eat honey to support bees.
STOP. STOP NOW.
DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?
Buy honey (local if possible) -> support beekeepers -> support bees.
I swear people don’t even think this stuff out.
Beekeepers provide bees with an environment in which they can live, and are encouraged to thrive. Bees then have a big huge giant person who can deal with any threats to the hive.
Yes, honey is a winter food supply for bees, but beekeepers (unless they’re dicks, in which case they’d be shooting themselves in the foot) will NEVER take too much honey from a hive, and will always ensure that bees have enough food. Think about it, you’re not going to starve a source of income/hobby, are you?
I had to reblog just for “DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?" because it made me realize that some people really don’t!
Erm excuse you
That is not how it happened in bee movie

Megamind - 'Bad Guy' vs ‘Nice Guy’
Seriously, if you haven’t see this movie, you really, really should. There are so many great things about Megamind: anti-bullying, great female character, funny jokes, touching scenes, very detailed animation, super awesome music… The gif set above is probably my favourite thing, however: Nice Guy is the bad guy.
Yeah I’ve kinda wanted to talk about this a lot.
Megamind is the villain, the “bad guy”. She makes it clear that she doesn’t want him. He respects it and walks off. It comes up a few more times but it’s more of an “are you sure?” or “thats how it is” than any sort of demand.
Hal is the new “hero”. His crush on Roxanne turns into an immediate “You love me now because I’m a superhero!” and when she makes it clear that she doesn’t want him, his reaction is to tantrum, then destroy the city, inevitably killing people, and attempting to kill both Roxanne and Megamind.
Hal’s legitimately scary because women have to deal with behavior like his on a constant basis. Don’t be a Hal. Be a Megamind. RESPECT THE “NO”.
Unrelated, but my other favorite thing, besides the whole “villain is a Nice Guy”, is that Minion cross-dresses and Megamind is completely serious when he says “you look fantastic”. Megamind is totally cool about his best friend cross-dressing and encourages it. That’s very important.
Roxanne also is the only character that moves the story along. All the other characters are having an existential crisis. Roxanne throws things and steps up first and is just a fucking queen.
Also I am like 200% convinced Megamind is bi. BUT THATS ME NOT OFFICIAL CANON although Dreamworks has like abandoned Megamind entirely so fandom says he’s bi THE END fandom-canon is now canon fight me on this
Sometimes I think this movie came out a few years too early. Tumblr would have loved the shit out of this. This movie fucks with stereotyped gender roles and Nice Guy thinking and just augh Dreamworks why did you let go of this why why why that was the worst decision ever why
