21 Feb The Badassery of Insurgent
by KB Meniado
Did you know I only picked up the trilogy after I saw “Divergent” The Movie? Fans of Divergent The Books, shake your heads at me but you know the power that is Veronica Roth, nay, Theo James, just can’t be denied.
I’m kidding. Divergent The Books are amazeballs and squares and rectangles. If I were only after the epitome of smoldering male specimen that is Theo, My Darling, I wouldn’t have moved on to the next book after the first. And I definitely wouldn’t have binge-read the trilogy on one Saturday when I could have spent the day on more… or less breathtaking activities, you know?
Moving on … the trailer of Insurgent was released in December last year, which means my feelings about it have been sitting for too long, culturing like bacteria – the good kind, of course. With the movie screening only a month (!!!) away, it’s time to unleash some intense feelings about the trailer, which, as you may have seen, is its own branding of S U P E R B A D A S S.
For a 2-minute-and-24-second-long video, there are so many things to talk about. That mysterious box, the youthfulness of Evelyn Johnson (leader of the Factionless), Tris’ sick ‘do (and I don’t mean The Fault in Our Stars kind of sick), evil taking form in Jeanine Matthews, Octavia Spencer playing Amity speaker Johanna—uh, you know what, let’s just get on with it:
The Top 5 Ways In Which Insurgent Was Badass
1. When The Dauntless Became Obsessed with Guns
2. When Evil Took a Human Form in Jeanine Matthews
3. When More Strong and Beautiful Women Showed Up
By the way, no, these caps aren’t from “The Matrix,” although that would have been as fierce.
4. When the Struggles Became Real
5. When Tris shows up as Ms. Jamaica to the power of BANGIN’
I can’t wait to see how brilliant she will be in the movie.
Allow me to remind you of this man’s existence:
And stop squirming and squealing, fangirls and boys, because you have to save them all up for things such as this below! ☁
