Favorite movies of all time
↳ The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas (2008)
I think Lex/Kara was always going to happen at some point because it’s in the comics and I know they dont follow the comics but it’s something that just is such a smallville thing to include lol I dont know if that makes sense. But yeah I think no matter when they introduced Lex would’ve been interested in her.
I thought the way they did Lex/Kara was interesting the way she saved him in the water. One of the few things I liked in season 7.
Sandra Bullock’s box office take over the last five years is as good or better than most male leads. The same can be said of Melissa McCarthy, who also has the attention of about 10 million viewers a week on Mike and Molly when she’s not on the big screen. Both of them have been integral to the marketing and promotion of their films, so it’s clearly not that moviegoers won’t watch a blockbuster with a woman in the lead.
But in very specific terms, Gravity was marketed as a co-headlining movie from Bullock and George Clooney, but anyone who saw it knows that it was Bullock’s film. Clooney was perceived as being necessary to market the movie in spite of the fact that since 2008, his movies have generated about $634 million total at the domestic box office, compared to Bullock’s $891 million. During that time, Clooney made nine films to Bullock’s six, meaning that the per-film average is even more heavily skewed in Bullock’s favor.
During that time, the total budget for Clooney’s films came to a minimum of $307 million and the budget for Bullocks clocked in at $214 million. That means that for every dollar spent producing a George Clooney film, the studio saw $2.07 back. That isn’t half bad, really. You know what it is half of? The $4.15 they saw on every Sandra Bullock dollar they spent during the same five-year period. Each of them had a couple of low-budget indie films and a couple of failures during the five-year period, but Clooney–the name Warner Bros. was convinced was necessary to promote the film–averaged just over $70 million per film during that period while Bullock averaged upwards of $148 million."
So, what you’re saying is - we can’t get a Wonder Woman movie because movie executives can’t count?

Well from Angel my favorite quote is “If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do”
From smallville “You can be the world’s greatest hero or its most mild-mannered citizen, but the only person who can write your story, is you.”
I don’t know those are the two that jump to my mind. The Angel quote is my favorite.
Why did the US government shut down? How did Panem come to existence? Who was the first President? What happened to the other continents?
I am planning to see how many notes this gets, and once it gets a fair amount, I plan to send a letter to Suzanne Collins and ask her to make a new series about this topic.
