Okay, but this movie wins the award for Best Use of Manpain, tho.
In any other movie, Raleigh would’ve spent 90 minutes being like MY PAIN IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR STUPID WAR, and instead, he snaps back into action as soon as he meets Mako. That’s awesome. But what floors me is that he uses his own grief to help Mako survive hers. He knows how awful it is to lose your family. He knows what she’s going through. And instead of whining or thinking his pain makes him entitled to opt out of his responsibilities, he empathizes with Mako, supports her, and encourages her.
Raleigh’s greatest strength is his compassion. And that’s the kind of male hero I’d like to see on my screen, please.
Plus, like, a bazillion more movies about Mako Mori.
the thing about misha’s portrayal of leviathan that impresses—and creeps me out—most is the fact that if you look at his eyes in these shots, it doesn’t look like cas, and it doesn’t even look like misha.
there’s something dead about his eyes here that just freaks the shit out of me. it just looks like there’s something behind his eyes, rather than in them. he’s empty and hollowed and there’s something else inside him.
the fact that misha can do that with just his eyes is incredible to me.
thank you for also noticing. its the whole reason why i loved levi-cas. his eyes look darker somehow and at first.i thought they did something digitally but i’m convinced it was all misha
Plus the fact that he was severely ill whilst filming that scene makes me love his acting a whole lot more
and its really hot
I JUST LOVE MISHA’S ACTING OKAY
Friendly reminder that the confusion and fear in Dean is actually Jensen’s real reaction because this is not how they rehearsed this scene and Misha scared the crap out of him with it
