I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
You got a lady?

Arrested because belongings are not packed fast enough. Is that “contempt of cop” in action? This is very chilling to see someone working on their laptop assaulted this way. How did the police know they were or were not reporters? It could have been a citizen journalist.
How long before there is a call to twitter, facebook, G+, tumblr, and others to censor the news of Ferguson? How long before the local police request cell phone jamming technology to prevent calls being made out? how long before some method of stopping data transfer at the cell towers is called for to prevent the spread of what is happening?

This scene is so frustrating.

Goodbye my friends I’m gone.
GUYS. ALL OF THIS IS A DRAWING
IT’S ARTWORK ASLKDJASKLD NOT A REAL PERSON
I was amazed by the cosplay detail and it’s not even cosplay it’s a frickin drawing?!?!?!!!?!???!
#Viktor was obviously deeply in love with her #just remember the fact that he took her to prom #even knowing that he could’ve choose any other girl #remember how he forgot about everyone and danced with her all night #remember how he looked at her while saying ‘write to me, please’ #remember how, a few years later #on Fleur’s wedding #he danced with her one more time #probably being conscient that her heart already belonged to Ron #this is why I love Viktor Krum so much #he just enjoyed being with Hermione #and didn’t care about the future #mostly, because she wasn’t going to be a part of his.
and he bumped into someone wearing the emblem of the dark wizard who murdered his grand-father (as well as doing whatever other untold damage we haven’t learnt of yet) and didn’t duel them purely out of respect for Bill and Fleur, behaving with tact and self-control. Jeez, what a mensch! Is it any wonder he was Durmstrang’s chosen Champion?
So this is what happens when Natasha tells Clinton to go pick up their daughter from ballet lessons.
yeah. that’s basically it
not even exaggerating

my favorite moment in all cinematic history is when an enormous robot the size of a skyscraper picks up a battleship and smashes it into a giant sea alien’s face. god bless pacific rim
