I’M TALKING TO A DIFFERENT ONE AND TROY ASKED ABOTU ME
Elle Woods was hollering back before the movement. This is why i love this movie. It’s so progressive. Elle is a femme feminist who comes by it the hard way. She doesn’t change for the bookish people, the elitists, or for the feminists. She just does what she needs to do, and what she wants, even when at first it was chasing a boy. Then the movie drops the romance. IT DROPS THE ROMANCE. chick flicks don’t do that. Emmett asking her out is a footnote at the very end. And this whole time, she is classy, and lady like, and has pride in herself and her work. She’ll go to a costume party as a playboy bunny, but like hell will she sleep with her professor for an internship. Elle is my feminist role model

I remember listening to my DAD defend Legally Blonde. An uncle was saying “Oh look, it’s that stupid movie again.” as he flipped through the channels. My dad responded with “Oh yeah, that movie where the blonde girl with great grades works really hard to get into pre-law, studies hard and proves herself to her peers and bosses while maintaining her integrity and not sleeping with her boss? What a terrible message to send girls.”
Also, I love this movie because Reese Witherspoon.
And don’t forget that she has serious female friends and wins the case by way of her specialist knowledge of so-called “feminine things” that no one else takes seriously enough to even bother with.
The movie also passes the Bechdel test.
LET’S NOT FORGET that even though it starts with a situation where two girls are rivals for the same guy, they BOTH choose to ignore the social codes (and hollywood bylaws) that tell them they should be cat-fighting and trying to one-up each other, and instead they realize that they make good working partners and better friends and screw rivalry, AND ALSO HAVE EACH OTHER’S BACKS RE: WORKPLACE SEXUAL HARASSMENT. And that it portrays sororities as places where women can learn to work together and respect each other and help each other out, which sets the stage for the way Elle treats everyone she meets for the rest of the movie. OH AND IT HAS A FAT SIDE CHARACTER WHO OVERCOMES EMOTIONAL ABUSE, IS NEVER FAT-SHAMED OR USED AS THE BRUNT OF A FAT JOKE, AND LANDS THE HOTTEST MAN IN THE ENTIRE FILM.
this is the happiest thing i’ve ever seen

There’s one scene in the game, where we see Joel, not as a ruthless survivor, but as a father. I knew from the very beginning that he was gonna lose his daughter. And I just told Neil, “When that day comes, for us to shoot that, I need a heads up. About a week before, he said, “It’s time. We’re gonna do that scene.” I was like, “Okay.” Cause I knew that I was gonna have to go to this place that you don’t really wanna go to, as an actor. You wanna find some aspect of reality that you can empathetically draw from, you know? I started recalling all these memories, and started pulling up all these feelings, and they’re just right underneath the surface.
[talking about filming the scene] I just lose my shit. I mean just completely break down emotionally. It was the first take and I felt really good about it, and Neil said, “Okay, let’s do it again.” So you do it again, and automatically you feel like you’re manufacturing […] cause you’re trying to go back to that place, and you know, you’re in that actor nightmare of trying to get back to that reality. And we go through it again, and fifth and sixth and seventh take, and I’m just exhausted. I’m crying between takes, and I’m looking at Neil going, “This is really, really hard.” And finally after the eighth or ninth take, he said, “Alright, I think we got it.” I was like, “Oh, thank God,” and I went outside and I was just jacked up for the rest of the day, just a wreck emotionally. But we got it.
Then two weeks later, he calls me. And he says, “So, we need to reshoot a scene,” and I’m like, “Cool, what scene are we doing?” And he just looks at me.
I said, “Dude, don’t do this to me.”
And [finally], I’m like, “Okay, alright, you don’t think you got it? I’ll show you that you got it. We’ve got it in the can.” And so we go through it again, and it just feels fake. It feels artificial, and Neil goes, “Go through it again,” and we do it again, and I’m getting madder and madder with each take. Finally at about the fourth take, [laughs] Neil comes over to me and - I love him so much - he goes, “So I’m picking up on some resistance.” And I was like, “You’re damn right you’re picking up on some resistance! We’ve got this in the can already, and we’re just wasting our time and we’re wasting all this effort and energy.” And then he starts talking me through the scene, and he’s like “What I need you to do is, I need you to just strip yourself of all these ideas, and I need you to hit this beat, and this beat, and this beat, and this beat,” which just makes it sound so mechanical and it’s such an emotional scene. So we start going through it, and literally, I’m just mindlessly doing these things at this point.
[after filming the final take] He stops and he goes, “Now we got it.” And I realized that the reason why I wanted that first take to work was cause I wanted everyone to look at me and go, “Wow. What an actor.” And that’s not what the scene needed. This scene actually works, not because of me, but in spite of me. And that really is the mark, and the definition of working with a truly good director.- Troy Baker on the process of filming the Prologue with Neil Druckmann
