I’ve been so friggin busy all day shooting my short film that I didn’t even get a chance to post this video on Tumblr yet. It’s pretty much everywhere else at this point, but what the hey. I’ll post it here, too, in case some of you tumblrers haven’t seen it yet.
Now my face is wet.
I somehow wouldn’t expect anything less epic from Craig…and yet still…I am astounded…and SO HAPPY.
EPIC. (I kind of knew this was going to happen, but I had no idea it would be so epic.)
I CAN’T BELIEVE HOW MUCH I CRIED I AM SO HAPPY THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS MOMENT WITH US.
“When I was much younger, I was often asked in what ways I thought I was similar to Ron. My stock answer usually included something similar to: ‘I like sweets, I’m scared of spiders, I’ve got ginger hair, I come from a big family.’ But, the truth is that Ron is my hero. He’s always there for his friends—sometimes belligerently, but there nevertheless. And no matter how scared he may be, he will put aside his fears to support and protect the people he loves. To me, that represents true courage.”

"This is one of those things that makes me think you actors are very good. No, it’s just the way that you actually have to do it. You know, you’ve got 40 people around you in a room, guys with microphones and everything, and suddenly you’ve got to do it for real.
But she does it so…She’s completely brilliant. It’s not just that she cries…
I clearly didn’t direct her at all this day, she just did it all herself.”

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.
And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.
"In her heartbreak she found freedom, friends, and the ability to look back and laugh at all she’d learned. She now lives her life on her own terms and still has fantastic hair."
