WE’RE GOING TO THE ZOO
Welcome to The Doctor and Rose Shippers Club
If you’d told me that I’d be sharing a Miley Cyrus cover of Jolene because it’s really great, I would have laughed in your face … and yet.
DOO WEE OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
One of the best transitions I’ve ever seen in a movie.
A gallery with no sculptures, only a cloud floating within the space. ‘Nimbus’ is a new installation of Amsterdam-based artist Berndnaut Smilde, who refuses to explain how he managed to create a real cloud.

And now, the weather.
When people ask how you’re doing at the end of the semester
i laughed way too hard at this
Peggy is the one to get stuck in ice in and survive the century. Pepper doesn’t get rid of Extremis and becomes Rescue. Bruce Banner stays under the radar leaving Betty as the authority in gamma radiation. Jane retains some of the Aether’s powers. Thor is busy ruling Asgard, therefore Sif is the one tasked to retrieve the Tesseract. Director Fury rounds them all up along with Black Widow for his Avengers Initiative and, Barton being compromised, Maria Hill steps up as the marksman of the team.
tldr; the ladies save the world instead
@marvel Flattery will get you nowhere! Probably. Maybe. *looks the other way*
Dubbed movies aren’t actually half bad - at least to movies dubbed in other languages. Trust me, I’ve watched both Spanish and French dubbed movies, they were way worse. This is what we like to call “Jammern auf hohem Niveau” - complaining even though everything is pretty good. You’ll find that Germans are a people of complainers; we like to complain about everything. We are never content :)
Still, I’m really really excited that you’re interested in my culture and HELL YES THERE ARE A BUNCH OF AWESOME GERMAN MOVIES. Here are some highly acclaimed ones and some of my favourites, I hope all links work.
- 12 Meter ohne Kopf (a movie about a German pirate, who allegedly walked 12 meters after being beheaded in order to save his crew)
- Auf der anderen Seite (a really bautiful sort of episodic movie connecting the lives of three families, both German and Turkish)
- Barfuss (a movie about a girl suffering from PTSD, who is saved mostly accidentally from committing suicide by a dude cleaning the clinic she is in, and then follows him around everywhere, and they fall in love. Seriously, onely one of two movies by Til Schweiger worth watching)
- Buddenbrooks (the story of a very rich merchant family and their downfall…a really famour book adaptation)
- Das Boot (a movie about a German submarine and its crew during World War II. 100& must-see)
- Das Experiment (A movie about a psychology experiment in prison, and how people react when given free reign over others. This should come with a huge trigger warning. It’s awesome, but also really super disturbing)
- Das Leben der Anderen (You might’ve heard of that one, since it received an Oscar. It deals with surveillance in East Germany, and is, also, a must-see).
- Das weiße Band (A movie about the oppressive and rigid society pre-World War I children grew up in.)
- Das Wunder von Bern (This movie mixes the football world championships of 1954 (soccer for heathens who call other stuff football) and the story of a family that has to re-learn to live with each other when the father comes home after being a war captive for like…12 years MUST SEE)
- Der Baader Meinhof Komplex (movie about famous German left extremists, the RAF and their terrorist attacks)
- Der Schuh des Manitu (THE single best German comedy to ever exist. It makes fun of Cowboy movies/books that are super popular in Germany. You’ll cry of laughter seeing Native Americans with a Bavarian accent - which also means your language level should be really high, or you won’t understand a thing. Uh, obviously don’t watch if you think white comedians playing Native Americans is racist even when it’s satire)
- Der Untergang (the last days in thr life of Adolf Hitler. You’ll probably have heard of that one, too. MUST SEE)
- Die Blechtrommel (God, I don’t know how to describe this one. Basically, a movie about a child who decides he doesn’t want to grow anymore and observes the world of the adults around him?)
- Die Fälscher (again, dealing with World War II, and people in concentration camps who were tasked with copying money of other countries)
- Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei (a movie about three rebels who break into rich people’s houses only to rearrange their furniture and tell them to revise their morals - until one of them catches them in the act and they abduct him for a weekend. MUST SEE)
- Die Feuerzangenbowle (THE classic movie. about the German school system. An older guy pretending to be a student at an elite high school. Also gave the name to a drink you will find a lot on Christmas markets)
- Effie Briest (another novel adaptation about a young woman whose marriage is arranged and who loses everything when she cheats on her husband)
- Ein Freund von mir (two guys who are completely different building a very strange friendship)
- Elementarteilchen (about the lives of two brothers who were separated after birth, and the completely different lives they lead)
- Fack Ju Göhte (no links yet, it only came out last year, a new comedy about the German school system, and absolute must-see, if you happen to find a link one day)
- Gegen die Wand (a Turkish girl fake-marrying a German addict in an attempt to escae her family. MUST SEE)
- Goodbye Lenin (a beautiful movie/comedy about a family and the German reunification. MUST SEE)
- Im Winter ein Jahr (a family dealing with the loss of their son/brother)
- Kabale und Liebe (a superb adaptation of Schiller’s play. bsjdhkdjk)
- Kebab Connection (…I don’t even know how to describe this movie. Just watch it. Very multi/transcultural and hilarious)
- Keinohrhasen (a douche has to do community service at a kindergarten - and finds that the girl he used to bully as a kid is now his superior. uh-oh. It’s super funny)
- Kirschblüten - Hanami (a dude travelling to Japan to understand and be close to his late wife)
- Lola rennt ( a movie about a couple in a dangerous situation - and three possible outcomes)
- Schiller (ah boy, this was a TV production, so I couldn’t find a link. A brilliant movie about the life of Germany’s best playwright, if you ask me)
- Soul Kitchen (a comedy about a guy trying to keep his restaurant afloat and keeping his brother out of a life of petty crime)
- Sophie Scholl - die letzten Tage (a movie about the last days in the life of Sophie Scholl and her brother, who were part of the resistance against the Nazis)
- Vincent will Meer (a guy with tourette syndrom, a girl with an eating disorder and a guy with OCD break out of their psychiatric clinic to go to the sea. MUST SEE)
- Was nützt die Liebe in Gedanken? ( a movie based on a real story, about a group of teenagers vowing to commit suicide once they do not feel any love anymore)
- Wer früher stirbt ist länger tot (a comedy about a kid who does a lot of nonsense and when told that he is the reason his mother dies, blames himself, feares that he has to go to hell, and tries to make up for his sins by finding his dad a new wife. Hilarious. Again, tho, super strong Bavarian accent, beware!)
And if you want to watch a few good German TV-shows:
- Türkisch für Anfänger (ABSOLUTE MUST SEE TV SERIES OMG WATCH IT!!! It deals with a German-Turkish patchwork family and it is hilarious)
- Tatort Münster (basically a procedural crime show. There are a lot of Tatorts, but this is the only one that is always good. you’ll find a lot of the episodes on youtube)
- Der letzte Zeuge (a show about a coroner solving crimes)
some movies people have asked me to add (but that I am too lazy to search links for):
- Die Welle (based on the novel “the third wave”, a movie about how fascism develops thanks to an experiment in school)
- Der Wixxer (yes, the title is a pun, and yes, if it was written differently, it would translate to “the masturbator”. A hilarious parody of Edgar Wallace movies)
- (T)Raumschiff Surprise (by the same dude who made “Der Schuh des Manitu”, a parody of Star Trek)
petition for a doctor who episode where the doctor travels back in time to meet arthur conan doyle and accidentally happens to mention how popular sherlock holmes is even 130 years later and poor acd almost breaks down crying
"Doctor before you leave…just tell me one thing."
"My books, the Sherlock Holmes books…do they die out?"
"No, Arthur. People love them. They carry on for hundreds of years."
"Damnit. God damnit. Fuck."
This is so hard because you know this isn’t the first time they’ve had this conversation. They probably have it every time he visits her. He squares his shoulders before he goes in there, and hopes for the best, relatively speaking. You can see it in his face in that second gif - the way he literally crumples when he sees that he’s lost her again.
