This Tumblr is... Stuff I Like. So right now there's Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Frozen, Sherlock, and terrible puns.

There will always be terrible puns.
Look, a new photo for all the things!

Despite internet buzz the past week, it turns out there will NOT be a sequel to Jim Henson’s Labyrinth (http://www.themarysue.com/no-labyrinth-sequel/).

And you know what? I’m glad there won’t be.

Whereas The Dark Crystal has a rich world that could sensibly be explored more (a sequel to that has been in the works for over a decade: Genndy Tartakovsky - Samurai Jack, the original Clone Wars series - was going to direct it), Labyrinth's story is a very specific one that ends exactly when it should. It's a coming-of-age tale about an adolescent girl trying to figure out her place in the world, which is why it's ending is so satisfying. A follow-up would just be gratuitous. Those of you who know me know that JM Barrie's Peter & Wendy is one of the defining books of my entire life; and that I consider the entire story to be a dream by Wendy. Like Sarah, I’ve always considered it to be the story of Wendy’s subconscious attempting to make sense of the changes in the world around her AND in herself.

The video attached - posted at the end of September, before all this “sequel” talk started - is a great summation of why I still love the film as much as I do. The way the story is written up here is exactly why I don’t think a sequel would be a good idea.

Being off the Internet almost entirely for October, I thankfully missed all this sequel talk.

But I’m glad it’s not happening. (Besides, I don’t think they could beat some of the fanfic I’ve reads, so heh.)

It’s a brand new Bad Movie Beatdown, where Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl make a deadly duo in tedious action rom-com Killers, but one lethal pairing deserves another: can me and Ursa from Stuff You Like take them out?

I think you speeeled stuff wrong Mat :P

A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Facebook

Have you ever stopped to think about what Facebook would be if it were a real, physical place?

Just think about it for a second—a big, open, blue and white marble plaza, with softly bubbling fountains.  Off to one side, someone is wearing a sign that reads, “THIS IS THE BEST DIET YOU CAN BUY.”  No one seems bothered.

In the middle of the square sits everyone who you’ve ever known, talking about everything they’ve ever cared about.  When something someone blurts out happens to tickle some of the crowd around that person, they ALL give an exuberant thumbs up and start making snarky comments.  You turn your eyes elsewhere.

Does anybody else remember how amazing this TV show was? I legitimately miss watching Kim Possible.

Female pilots edited out of the Star Wars movies.

I saw the tweets about this today, and I was like oh yeah, I remember hearing about that.

And then I saw the pictures and just— wow. What it would have meant to have these women in the movie, all this time. I can’t properly articulate it but it’s hitting me unexpectedly hard.

Wow thats a shame, even a nice old lady too.  These Space Valkyries  should have been left in.

They really should have.

WHAT.

THE.

FUCK.

I lived, ate, and breathed Star Wars from age 2 until 2005 when RotS finally beat the enthusiasm out of me, and I have NEVER, EVER in all my reading on behind-the-scenes and makings-of heard of these shots. It’s a shame there was no relaunched edit of the original trilogy they could have slipped these in OH FUCKING WAIT THERE’S BEEN LIKE 3 OF THOSE NOW.

Fuck. FUCK. Whoever decided to edit out and bury these needs to french kiss an angle grinder.

I want to see the old lady in the A-Wing. Seriously, it’s like, she’s somebody’s grandma. Some kid in the Outer Rim Territories got greased by the Empire for seeing something she wasn’t supposed to see, and her grandma, the bush pilot, decided “Fuck this, I’m gonna strap on an fighter and make the Empire fucking PAY for the moment it decided to fuck with MY FAMILY.”

DON’T. MESS. WITH. GRANDMA.

These are quickly being put into the “always reblog” category.

Whenever there is a war, there are women who are warriors. Then they get erased from history. Happens in real wars and fictional ones alike.

I need a series about these people. Like, now. I mean the Rogue Squadron book series is grand and all, has men and women and aliens and everything, but I don’t think it ever had A-Wing pilots old enough to be grannies.

(Yes I know they’re mostly about the X-Wings but work with me here.)
