Best moment in the whole series.
I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.
Then I spend time with teenagers.
And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.
How cute is Snow, tho?
Momma Snow isn’t given enough credit for her purity. She isn’t given enough love for the great amount she continuously shows to others. There honestly aren’t enough words in the English dictionary to describe the incomparable excitement we know she feels because of the happiness on her face. All she’s ever wanted since the moment she befriended Emma is to see the walls that’ve kept away pain tumble down because they’ve welcomed love. She’s always been a hopeless romantic who’s believed that love is the most immaculate thing in the world. Goodwin’s reactions are nothing short of perfect for we know that as a mother herself, and even before she became one, she’s always gotten incredibly excited when talking about the little things. For Momma Snow, these brief moments of knowing her daughter’s heart is filled with happiness are now without a doubt a part of her most favorite memories. She and Charming will cherish this day for the rest of their lives because for the first time, they’re parenting in ways they never have — their daughter has opened up to them and blossoms in front of them in ways she’s never had. All she’s ever tried to do was encourage Emma to be willing to love someone because she knows it heals in ways nothing in the world does. And in that last gif especially, Goodwin’s spritely expressiveness shouts “this is what dreams are made of" — there’s no joy like a mother understanding that her daughter feels the same kind of happiness she feels when in the presence of her plaid wearing, impeccable husband.
If you don’t like Elizabeth Swann you’re wrong.
Keira Knightley was 17 there
Yup Keira was 16/17 for the filming of the first Pirates movie and here I am at 20, and all I’ve done today is study chemistry, eat cookies and cry a lot.

I didn’t realize Captain Jack Sparrow had a tumblr
Oh goodness, click through the link to see the gallery. *-*
Easily the most horrifying line of dialogue I’ve ever heard in an animated movie.
NO BUT THIS WAS SUCH A GOOD GODDAMN MOVIE LIKE THE MUSIC IS FUN AND SUPERB THE CHARACTERS WERE REAL PEOPLE EVEN THE ANTAGONISTS THE WOMEN WERE GREAT IT WAS ALL GREAT. IT DOESNT MATTER IF YOURE JEWISH, CHRISTIAN, MUSLIM, ATHEIST, WHATEVER ELSE IT DOESNT MATTER ITS SUCH A GOOD MOVIE AND ITS LITERALLY ONLY 90 MINUTES OF YOUR DAY AND EXPERIENCE THIS HERE JUST CLICK IT LITERALLY IT WILL OPEN IN A NEW TAB GO WATCH.
also can we point out that none of the characters were white? like damn accurate depictions of Biblical characters
whispers this is one of my all time favourite movies
I adore this movie. ADORE IT. And the above scene is a perfect example of one of the main distinctions this movie has amongst all movies, but particularly amongst animated movies: the bad guys are not mustachio-twirling villains who do evil shit because they love being evil or generically want power. They actually bothered to develop each of the major characters and explore their motivations and how their actions evolved out of their personalities and their experiences. It would have been super easy to take the narrative from Exodus and make the pharoah Generic Evil Dude, but they went beyond that and explored the relationship between the father and his sons, Ramses and Moses, and how those intersecting family relationships impacted both men’s actions as adults. Pharaoh’s dialogue there is terrifying not just because he did a bad thing; but because it’s clear from his words and his face that he genuinely believes that he was acting out of what he thought was the best interest of his family and his kingdom. That’s how you build a human villain- they have motivations that are complicated but sympathetic, and then they take it to a place where you’re like, “Wow, that is super not okay.”
Plus this scene resonates because it recognizes that it’s not even the infanticide which is the ultimate source of the evil here (although infanticide is pretty bad), but rather the dehumanization of an entire race of people that allowed Pharoah and his soldiers to justify the infanticide to themselves so they could perform it. Like, congratulations Dreamworks, you totally boiled down genocide for the under-twelves.
Then you have Ramses, who is just a hot mess of daddy issues, and they do a great job of showing the way he and Moses are torn up about how they’re being forced into these opposing roles. It’s not that they don’t have agency, because they do, but you get the sense of how circumstances are shaping them into men who are representative of two diametrically opposed cultures and agendas. Ramses is a villain, but more because he feels he is standing in his father’s sandals and has to take up the villainy that his father worked his way into than because he has any particularly villainous motivations.
Then, in addition to the character development and general craft, the animation and music are absolutely stunning. The plagues are given impressive weight not by 5-star special effects (as would have been tried if this was a live action film) but by the way they are set up and reacted to by the characters. The slaying of the firstborn is not graphic at all but it is legitimately terrifying.
Bottom line, everything about this film is amazing and if you haven’t seen it sometime over the past 15 years, you are missing out.
ITA about this movie, its ethnically accurate character design, and its music.
This is how that new Moses movie should look. None of them British folk playing Egyptians
i had a crush on this guy and i decided to pull a Pavlov on him by offering him whenever i saw him this brand of candy he seemed to really like and after a while whenever he saw me he got excited for a second then you could see his expression shift to wondering the why the hell was he so happy to see me and i swear it was the evilest thing but also the most hilarious i made a guy like me by conditioning him into associating me to a candy he liked
Concept art or Hyrule Warriors.
