I think Gilgamesh would be absolute dogshit at snowball fights. He would stand in the middle of the field laughing like "You mongrels think I can be beat at such a childish ga-" and then get absolutely pummeled from every direction before falling motionlessly to the ground. He would lose every single round like this.

Eternals reviews and my feelings about it
no spoilers don’t worry :)
Quick note: my blog is a safe space and rudeness and negativity will be deleted and ignored :)
Tumblr media
All the “bad” things I've seen are the reasons I think I'll love it.
It doesn’t feel like an mcu film, not too much humor with jokes every 5 minutes, slower pace, focus on story instead of action, more adult... All this seems like a win for me!
We have 10 new characters, that are 7 thousand years old, we explore the creation of the universe, different galaxies and planets, and deeper topics like what it means to be human. Of course it’s heavy and dense.
We’ve been spoon fed light plot with cheap humor every 5 minutes, so when we get a decent plot and a character focused story of course it feels alien. But hey, you can’t complain for years about not having character development, not exploring character’s personalities and personal traumas and fears, too many jokes ruining the moment and too much cgi distracting you, and then when we get something different you give it a bad review and a bad ratting saying it feels different. It doesn’t make sense. Do you want a break from the Marvel formula or not?
I completely understand people have different opinions, and I respect that, but what I’m seeing so far are critics (not marvel fans necessarily, let’s not forget that) giving a negative review because it doesn’t have typical mcu jokes and it’s character focused. And let’s not forget this movie has been getting heat since forever, it’s diverse, has gender swapped characters, legit gay representation (gay Joe Russo I’m looking at you) and it’s not made by a white straight american dude.
Also, many reviews are contradicting themselves. They don’t like the directing choices then call it Zhao’s masterpiece, they complain about locations being barren but when Dune was basically all sand it was cinema, they have issues with marvel movies not focusing on characters but then say the movie was too focused on character and plot instead of action.
A movie full of layers, complex, focused on characters and slower paced is far from a bad movie. There’s a huge difference there. Different doesn’t equal bad.
It seems Marvel went out of their comfort zone with this one and I’m really happy with that.
The cast is incredible, Chloé Zhao is a master, I love everything Ramin Djawadi creates, and I’ll always be a Marvel girl. I’m super excited and can’t wait to watch this beauty on the big screen!

Who Are the Eternals According to Salma Hayek:
Hayek reveals early on in her discussions with Zhao involved understanding her character’s motivations. She asked her if Ajak could be a “mother figure,” because in her eyes, “The mother is, a lot of times, the leader of a family.”
...Being a maternal figure of this dysfunctional family unit allowed Hayek to have a specific perspective. “It’s a human way of seeing all these people; there’s a level of love, of caring, and empathy,” says Hayek. “I have a different relationship with each one of them like you do with your kids.”

Gilgamesh & Enkidu, done for the “Classics, but make it gay” zine. Thank you to the mods for letting me stray from the prompt a bit and paint some ancient mythological boyfriends :)

Why I LOATHE Hobby Lobby.
I HATE Hobby Lobby.
(a word I almost never use, but desecrating Jewish religious artifacts, using them as million-dollar tax writeoffs, gatekeeping access, misrepresenting them for one's Evangelical propaganda, all while refusing to acknowledge Jewish holidays in one's craft stores until an employee's anti-semitism went viral is obscene)
I DETEST Hobby Lobby.
I DEPLORE Hobby Lobby.
I ABHOR Hobby Lobby.
I DESPISE Hobby Lobby.
I DENOUNCE Hobby Lobby.
Thank you for coming to my TedX Talk.
