Yellow Flicker Beat by Lorde from the Mockingjay Part 1 Soundtrack


“It’s weird because everything that the character could think or feel is already kind of laid out for you in the book. You can’t take that many leaps, it becomes your song and not their song so it was definitely about keeping in that mindset and just thinking about ‘What would Katniss do?,’ but she’s such an awesome character to write for and it was such an awesome experience. There couldn’t have been a better character for me to write from the perspective of.”

“Basically I wrote the song specifically for the movie, it wasn’t something that I had to draft up previously. I reread the books, and I just wanted to tap into everything that Katniss is feeling in that film and what’s the crazy stuff that goes on. One of the things that happened in the book which to me felt like this crazy turning point was her best friend Peeta tries to kill her, he’s been brainwashed and tries to strangle her. It just felt like something so irreparable and something that the characters couldn’t turn back from. I felt like Katniss was like ‘okay, I’m taking names. I’m coming for blood. You don’t do these types of things to my friends and family and get away with it.’ I just wanted to make something kind of dark and haunting.”

"Tim keeps having me kill his wife in his movies… I don’t know what that means," -Johnny Depp

I love this post

i feel like Tim Burton ships his wife with Johny Depp really hard and writes entire fanfics and AUs about them, then makes those fics into movies

Do you ever get a feeling of panic when you think about a book that you have read some time ago and you find that you can’t remember it that well? 

Especially if it’s a book you know you liked but you can’t remember WHY.

Everyone points out that Robert Downey Jr basically IS Tony Stark, but the same can be said for Mark Ruffalo who basically IS Bruce Banner.

People like me don't write books. We're written about.

This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene
