This scene still breaks my heart each and every single time I watch it.
Azula was a terrible, horrible person. She would have set the world aflame and laughed over the broken carcass of her brother.
But she was fourteen.
She was so ruined and twisted by her childhood and by her nation, driven to insanity by the expectations placed upon her.
Azula was bad and yet I can’t help but feel so terribly sorry for her.

"I don’t have sob stories like all of you."

SHE WAS FUCKING FOURTEEN WHAT

"My own mother….thought I was a monster.She was right, of course, but it still hurt.”

actually, i think one of the shows strengths is that they didn’t shy away from what a horrible tragedy this was. even though she was clearly a villain and did unspeakably awful things, this scene was still framed as sad. there was no celebrating- they just look at her sadly.
the music for the battle that leads up to this moment is sad too- it’s an epic battle, visually probably one of the biggest things done in the entire series, and they could have played it with thumping, energetic, dangerous music. but instead it’s quiet and somber. because the whole scenario is heartbreaking, and they know it.
i think the fact that a kid’s show had so much respect for it’s viewers and their ability to understand the complexity of this situation is what makes avatar great.

Still my favorite story from the Lord of the Rings set: Viggo Mortensen bonded so much with the horse he rode in the movies that after filming was over he bought it from its owner. If that doesn’t warm your heart I don’t know what could.

don’t forget that he also bought arwen’s horse for her stunt rider when she couldn’t afford it awww

#also don’t forget that for the rohirrim they put a call out for locals #bring a horse show us you can ride it and get a part in the battle scenes #and one women went out roped a wild horse and rode for a few days to set #and got to be a rider of rohan

also sort of relevant viggo also bought the horse that costarred with him in the movie hidalgo and subsequently took the horse (tj) with him to the red carpet premier. 

Also most of the Riders of Rohan are actually women because when they put out that call mostly women showed up with their horses and the costume team just stuck beards on them.

(OHMYGOSH.)

Protip: when you are a zoo docent, it’s fun to blow kids’ minds by informing them that all Santa’s reindeer were girls, because of this little fact about their antlers.

holy shit. this means all those Christmas movies were completely wrong.

 #make way for the booty parade

Reblogging again bc I’ve been watching it for awhile (for characterization purposes!) and I thought Widow was running a little, erm, poorly. But then I remembered her ankle got pinned under that beam when the Helicarrier was attacked and this AMAZING BITCH IS RUNNING ON A BROKEN ANKLE.

ain’t no broken limb gonna stop the truly fierce one

No but the amazing thing is that things like that often get forgotten about in filmmaking. Oh she’s got a broken ankle huh? Oh well, I’m sure the fans won’t notice. BUT WE NOTICED AND THEY ARE AMAZING AT DETAIL IN THIS MOVIE.
