IT IS AN IDEA I HAD A WHILE BACK BUT IT IS ACTUALLY KIND OF FLESHING ITSELF OUT:
Manic Pixie Dream Girls as a narrative are kind of universally reviled, correct? I was thinking one day like, how do you make one AWESOME? Because movies featuring MPDGs are never ever about the MPDG herself, because she is not a person, she is an idea. And because we only see her through the eyes of fuckin Zack Braff or whatever, she is basically a blank slate.
My instinct is always to turn a blank slate character into something violent and dark and awful, so why not make her secretly terrifying??? Not in an existential way, but in a badass spysassin way.
BASICALLY MY MOVIE GOES LIKE THIS:
I WANT THIS MOVIE IN MY FACE.
I love this. Partly because I’m sometimes concerned that I am a manic pixie dreamgirl myself. It would be really cool to see a movie like this where a woman can be strange and have diverse interests but not for the benefit of “opening the eyes” of some boring douchebag.
An interesting model of our solar system’s path as it travels through space in the Milky Way.
Certainly a departure from usual models that show the Sun as a static object, which it certainly isn’t
I had no idea this was happening. Where are we going?
To fuck some shit up
whenever kirk is off on a mission or something and spock is left in charge of the enterprise, mccoy just sort of
it’s like he has this sense that spock is going to need someone to disagree with him in order to move the plot along in the next three minutes!!!
