I think that a lot of the reason Jarvis has become so human is because Tony treats him like he’s human. Tony talks to Jarvis in a very colloquial way. He says “you up?” when he knows damn well that Jarvis is operational. He says “throw a little hot-rod red in there” instead of “paint components x, y, and z with red paint #20.” Tony treats all his machinery like that—Dummy and You, especially—and Jarvis is no exception.
Jarvis has become much more human since Iron Man 1. He actually displayed emotions in Iron Man 3—specifically when he feared for Tony’s life, his voice sounded terribly frightened, and in instances like the second gif where he said “I need to sleep” and not “My battery is depleted.” Jarvis has grown and changed, as any self-aware creature does. He has become human because he is treated as such.
This is Enjolras after finding out that Lamarque died; I just want to applaude Aaron for his amazing interpretation of his character and his acting skills. You can see tears in Enjolras’ eyes.
Beautiful and simple.
My favortie scene in that movie
David Tennant Being Adorable: 50th Anniversary Interview Edition (x)
mal reynolds is a mean old man. he has no ideals, he doesn’t believe good things happen to good people, he knows evil will often go unpunished, he doesn’t have faith in god or higher powers. mercy is a mark of a great man, but he isn’t one. he isn’t even good - he’s just alright. if that. he will kick a man that’s already down and not feel bad about it. he’s forgotten about values and ethics. the only thing he has is his ship, his crew and the fact that they’re still flying.
but mal reynolds was young once.
he was an idealist, he believed that god wouldn’t let him or anyone from his platoon die because they were good individuals, fighting for a good cause, believing in freedom and their right to achieve and secure it. even when it was obvious that they couldn’t win the war, when they were the only ones left standing, two weeks after the independents had officially surrendered, he wouldn’t let the younger men in his foxhole lose hope, he cheered them on, he told them they had done the impossible and that made them mighty.
but the war was over and the old values had no place in this strange, new world where the alliance was in power, and mal couldn’t find a place for himself. his ship became his universe, the only symbol of freedom that still mattered. he surrounded himself with people who still maintained pieces of himself he lost during the war, pieces he could never regain but that somehow brought comfort whenever he would realize there were still those with faith, hope, honour, people who still dared to dream and were able to see good in others even at their worst.
mal reynolds is a mean old man, but his crew makes him forget about that fact from time to time, even if it is only for a brief second. they’re still flying. and it’s enough.
man you are going to hell for giving me all these feels.
