This is ridiculous.
There's really nothing I could say here to properly explain myself to you, but that's okay; you'll figure me out soon enough.

parallels.
for what, I have no fucking clue.
but saying “parallels” automatically makes any post sound 30% smarter

I have been racking my brain on this for awhile and I think i might have a theory.

In many ways Pacific Rim is about people. The decisions they make and how they interact with each other. I think that’s why it has the fan following it does. We all empathize with the characters, they feel like real people. Its something missing from most big budget action flicks. They are people that have been hurt by war and some of them express it in ways we understand while others don’t.

It takes two people to drift. A pair, just like a pair of shoes. Without one shoe you are hobbled, impaired. You need two shoes working together to be a complete person and you need two pilots working together to have a complete Jaeger. When Mako loses her family (and her shoe) as a little girl she becomes half a person. she leads a full life but its tainted by her obsession with revenge. She’s one shoe. The other shoe is Raleigh hes lost his other half and he’s broken, disgraced and gone into hiding. Hes also obsessed but by despair instead of revenge. When Pentecost gives Mako her shoe back she finally has permission to find her other half. She does and with his help they both find peace as a pair of Jaeger pilots.

So really the shoe is two things. Obsession and Partnership.

With Hannibal’s shoe you start out with the idea of obsession. Which is something Newt struggles with. He and Hannibal both have that in common but Hannibal’s obsession has corrupted him while Newt’s is scattered and hes ultimately trying to be a force for good. Under the right circumstances I could see Newt easily go that Hannibal direction. Which is kinda what I took away when he lifts up that shoe (after Hannibal is consumed by his own obsession in the form of the baby kaiju) and looks at it. Luckily there’s partnership. That’s where Hermann comes in. (interestingly enough in the cut scene where Hermann is holding Newt after his solo drift he is losing his shoe which shows that same idea of shoes/partnership.) Hermann’s big old floppy dirty oxfords are the opposite of the jingly shiny Hannibal shoe. He prevents Newt from going down that road by being his other half. Just like Raleigh is to Mako.

Again, the same two ideas. Obsession and Partnership.

So they are all literally Solemates. (haha)

A little less profound, but I was wondering if it was a reference to Spirited Away. (We know del Toro is a big fan of Ghibli movies, and I would argue Pacific Rim deals with a lot of themes Hayao Miyazaki is fond of — though that’s a topic for a different post.) Chihiro loses her pink shoe (red, pink …) in the river when she is little, and regaining that memory is a significant part of the plot. Mako doesn’t seem to have lost her memory of her shoe (far from it), but it is a major step forward in their relationship when she and Raleigh share that memory in the drift. Chihiro and Haku have a similar bonding experience when they remember (together, rather like in a drift) that particular event. That memory is tied to Chihiro’s identity (Chihiro lost that shoe, not Sen) and Haku’s (since it’s what allows him to remember his true name). When Mako holds her little red shoe, I see a memory of her lost family and her motivation to become the person she is today. 

Hannibal’s shoe? Well, it’s literally all that’s left of him — similar to how Mako’s shoe is all she has left of her younger self (really, Mako before she met Pentecost). To me, it mostly felt like intentionally heavy-handed symbolism, like del Toro was making fun of himself a little bit. (See the pretty extreme, comic difference between Mako’s shoe — which is extremely important, sentimental, etc. — and Hannibal’s, which is literally gilded, as in, not genuine.) I was pretty surprised there wasn’t a third shoe in the movie, which I think is why we latch onto Hermann’s shoe in the outtake: two is a coincidence, three is a pattern.

Reblogging because I want all of my followers to be aware of just how much you can do in Photoshop, and how little of what you see on posters, in magazines and of pictures on the internet etc. are necessarily real. 

Imagine how the model feels, too. She was hired to be the most beautiful, but they still had to change her because her beauty wasn’t enough.

Not only is the general body distortion completely gross, but notice that they lighten her skin color. This is a white, blonde model, and they make her whiter. Actual white people aren’t even the ideal whiteness, so can you even imagine what models with dark skin have to endure in this industry?

so for all you girls that ask “Why can’t I look like the girls in magazines” it’s because the girls in magazines don’t even look like the girls in magazines.

yeah but

For the past few months, my fiancee and I arranged to meet face to face, so I could properly propose to her. However, when I was about to leave home, my parents saw me, and wouldn’t let me leave. With them being as homophobic as…

i just realized how hilarious it is that even the most diabolically evil villains in the pokemon universe give you the required payout.

like the trainer code of honor in regards to that is SO INTENSE that not even your desire to kill most humans on earth gets in the way of giving this small child who just kicked your ass a bunch of your money.

like, you’re fully intending to murder him and everyone he loves in five seconds, but you’re never going to stoop so low as to break the sacred tradition of money-give.

wtf villains.

today i found out that apparently if you kill someone in international waters on an unregistered boat then throw the body overboard they can’t trace it back to any one legal system so you can’t be prosecuted for their murder

so what did you do today

the URL makes it so much better
