Fangirl Award Nominations are out, voted on by the Fangirl Academy, made up of over 100 Fangirls! Winners announced a week from today.
Oh, shit, the categories this year are rough.
Platonic chemistry is going to kill me.
Established characterization is clearly between Hulk and Catwoman and how can I cope with that.
FROBISHER/SIXSMITH ON THE BEST CHEMISTRY BALLOT fuck yes.
Hawkguy vs Saga. Oh no oh no oh no.
My dad just asked me, after viewing the movie, “how could every country have failed?” and it prompted me to explain why I don’t see the end of the film as being quite so bleak as it seems.
In every scenario, humanity overcame the evil they were faced with. With varying degrees of success, maybe, and not without considerable struggle and suffering, but in ever single nightmare scenario, humanity overcame.
Unleashing monolith death bringers is certainly going to put the world through a certain kind of hell, but they got put underground before, why not again?
What the end of the movie could easily signify is humanity’s chance to deserve their place on Earth, to earn it. Not without struggle and suffering and some pretty substantial losses to life, infrastructure and environmental sustainability, but you know, we’re kinda fucking all that up on our own.
Anyway, I think the ending to THE CABIN IN THE WOODS is more hopeful than the giant hand of fiery rock crash through the earth and enveloping the camera in darkness would lead us to believe.
