For [personal profile] monanotlisa ! Not sure if you wanted solid color backgrounds/text etc. so I just went for my usual sharpen& curve/vibrance manipulation.



nrgburst: (YESSSSS)
I had to make a YESSSS one for myself, so I figured I'd make a bunch of icons from the trailer. :D Feel free to snag! Comment/credit appreciated. :D

These are all sized for DW, so they'll be too big for LJ. Let me know if you want one sized down and I can delete frames/colors for you~

Back on a Moana kick recently. So I made this set and then I made another centering around the use of hongi in the film and belatedly remembered to check the tag first and oh. Somebody else had made it already (with almost the same choices of GIF size and frames- it was bizarre!) and their set already had more than 25000 notes. XDDD The digital release is tomorrow (it's already the 21st here, but I'm assuming most of you reading this are not on this side of the world, haha), and I'm very much looking forward to getting the mini movie with it! :DDD

Here, have some icons in the meantime! GIF ones are sized for DW, but the last two are JPEGs that will work for LJ too.

Your Name (君の名は)

A gorgeous movie that hooks you with its lighthearted and hilarious beginning and gradually ends up heartrending and suspenseful. The bickering between the main characters for "acting OOC" during their inadvertent bodyswapping is just delightful. XDDD My favorite bit is when he's yelling at her for spending his money on cafe food and she's like, "well it's YOUR body I'm feeding and I'm doing your PT job to earn it, so." And then the confusion and loss when that nuisance other half suddenly disappears. The plot is like The Lakehouse, but layered with references, parallels and symbolism, and the attention to detail is astonishing. I loved seeing the red string everywhere. I loved how it really felt like Tokyo, down to the warning stickers on the train doors. I got so nostalgic watching it- I used to live in Tokyo and even hearing that abrupt slamming sound of a train rushing past another made me love it all the more. It does the flip side of country life just as accurately, with the sound of fusama shutting to the accent (Gifu is near where I live, and my kids actually have an accent like Mitsuha's, to their Tokyo relatives' constant amusement.).

Despite all the buzz, I think anybody saying this is the best animated film of the year is kidding themselves? Moana, Zootopia and Kubo and the Two Strings convey much more powerful, universal messages, especially when you consider that the target audience is a lot younger. Yes, it definitely could have gotten an Oscar nod, but I don't think it deserved to win over any of those. Still, it was a wonderful film, and I made some icons to celebrate it too! (Really, I just wanted the words バカ and あほ on my journal. LOL):

Race to the Edge is back too, but have only watched the first ep so far. It's not as compelling as the HTTYD movies so it's easy to give them to the kids one at a time. (Plus I've already been spoiled via tumblr, so I can just watch those GIFs with glee.) :D

Reveals will be happening for chocolate box soon! Can't wait to see what else my gift maker has written! I think somebody has recced my fic somewhere because I just got a bunch of comments on it in this morning, which just makes me so happy. :D I wrote something that wasn't a popular pairing/character and it's towards the back of the archive because I guess I submitted earlier than most folks, so the hits have been pretty low. I'm glad people who read it liked what I did, at any rate! :D

nrgburst: (baby groot carried away)
So much amazing stuff to look forward to! Starwars.com posted a pic of an empty box yesterday and muffled screaming echoed across the world because LOOK AT OUR TRIO IN THE LAST JEDI, GUYS:

GotG 2/May 5th also can't come soon enough! I made these icons mostly from the trailers. Feel free to use them! They're sized for DW- most of them are too big for LJ. Credit/Comment, no hotlinking please.

breathe mami pitch ginny livan walk

ETA: Tried to cut to save image loading on reading/friend's pages but DW still hates div/cut tag interaction so I apologize for the formatting. *siiigh*
nrgburst: (katherine cessation of hostility)
Since we can upload images to DW now, I have to mess around with it JUST 'CAUSE I CAN. :DDD

Look Ma, no outside linking and auto sizing! (Elsie is pleasantly surprised too!)

To celebrate, I made a few icons. Feel free to snag them if you want! :D The usual no hotlinking, credit/comment please!
