eternally passionate about movie soundtracks and movie costumes and deleted scenes from movies and concept art for movies and scenery from movies and bloopers from movies and watching movies and movie theaters and just movies

But also that awkward moment when the Forest of Cheem’s sacrifice is relegated to unimportance in Moffat’s world. Her bravery and kindness don’t matter, and she’s turned into yet another cheap joke about women being infatuated with the Doctor.
That she fancied the Doctor did not feature at all in the season 1 episode. She was curious about his origins, she had sympathy for him, and she gave her life so he could save the rest of the people aboard the base. I personally don’t see her fawning over him (like so many of Moffat’s women do). Thus, with no real evidence to draw this from, Moffat seems to be interpreting her sacrifice as “fancying” the Doctor, which is immensely problematic: It suggests that she did this only for him rather than to save everyone on the ship, and it shows yet another example of Moffat thinking that any woman who interacts with the Doctor must be infatuated with him.
Even if she did fancy him, the fact that Moffat considers her actions negligible in comparison to her “crush” is pretty gross, especially when the payoff from this line is so small. All it does in the context of the episode is set up the Doctor as an object of desire. But in the context of the show, it undermines the agency and power of women to act with bravery and integrity without it being all for the Doctor.
lmao i remember complaining about this exact same thing on this exact same gifset back in 2011
additionally THAT’S NOT EVEN HER NAME
her name was Jabe??? this is like saying ‘i met the human race once. they fancied me’
I think the tags should have been #that awkward moment when Moffat tries to reference his predecessor’s run and that’s what he comes up with
if english isn’t your first language but you think and dream in english and sometimes have to mentally translate from english to your first language when speaking it as a consequence of your consistent exposure to the internet clap your hands

AHH! CanNOT wait for this to come out!!
i love the fact that a black woman directed this
Black woman director. Black woman writer. Black woman lead. Love this.
Everybody get the fuck out there and watch it. Take a friend. Take two friends. Go twice.
Hollywood has a vested interest in watching this film fail.
Hollywood does not like leads who are not white men.
Hollywood tolerates writers who are not men, but not often.
Hollywood doesn’t like directors who aren’t white men, either, unless they’re Alfonso Cuaron, who is still a man.
Hollywood likes to prove that these are films that “people”—that means you, that means me—will not watch, so they can go back to making movies where the men are white and the women are props.
Make this film explode. Make it impossible to ignore. See it opening weekend and tell everyone you meet how it spoke to you and why.
Look for online reviews and leave comments. If your local newspaper has no critic section, write a letter to the editor. Tell a friend. Tell two friends. Tell your mother’s friends who like romcoms.
You can do something just by spending ten bucks and opening your mouth about it.
What are you doing? You’re encouraging visibility. You’re encouraging diversity. You’re encouraging women in an industry that’s very Good Ole Boys Club.
And also, you get to see what looks like it’s going to be one damned fine movie.
#how do you think it must have felt to rose#to have someone say this to her#the girl who’s mom didn’t want her ‘putting on airs’#the girl with the boyfriend who was a better friend than lover#the girl everyone didn’t expect much from#because she was the girl who dropped out of school for a stupid boy#the girl with bleached blonde hair who lives on an estate#the girl who was just there and probably will always be just there#then she met this crazy man and he showed her the universe#fantastic and amazing things#but to him .. it would all mean nothing#if he lost her (via)
