russell crowe does the only version of stars i actually like.
While some reviews slam the film for not being political enough, as here (where the film is described as “a picturesque 19th-century version of Occupy Wall Street” lacking political context), I would counter that the film drips with politics, especially the micro politics captured in the feminist mantra “the personal is political.” From the tragic Fantine to the orphaned Cosette to the maltreated Eponine, the film depicts a story that is still all too true, and does so better than any musical version I’ve seen, showing that women–revolution or no–are all too often beaten, abused, exploited, raped and murdered. While it’s long ranked as one of my favorite musicals, it now holds the number one spot in this feminist heart for best musical film ever.
Clarrisa Fray◘ The Mortal Instruments ◘ 17◘ Shadowhunter ◘ New York ◘ FC: Lily Collins
Clarrisa ‘Clary’ Fray is a little bundle of red headed joy. Or at least some may think that. Clary grew up with no father but a fatherly figure known as Luke. Who turned out to be a werewolf and his real name is Lucian Graymark. Little sister of Jace Herondale. He may have lost his feelings for her but she still loves him. But he has gained his feelings back and they are happily together. We don’t even know what to say about this, but we will just see what comes next.
+ Friendly, pretty, trustworthy.
- Stubborn, Short-temper, short.
Jace Herondale ◘ The Mortal Instruments ◘ 18 ◘ Shadowhunter ◘ New York◘ FC: Jamie Campbell Bower
Jace Herondale you may say, is annoying. But I guess he just gets it from his father. Jace was born into the shadowhunter world and couldn’t do anything about it. When Clary came along he thought he had found true love. Until he found out she was his little sister. He is the king of sarcastic and some may call him a man-whore. With that edgy rocker side to him but also his sweet and loving side that comes out around his sister. Being friends with him can be a big mistake you have made in your life, but also could be a good thing as well.
+ Handsome, worrisome, nice.
- Cocky, sarcastic, demented,
