Flick Review: Train to Busan

Hello minions!

I know what you’re probably thinking… two blog posts in one week!?  Is she sick!?  Is she dying!?  Alas the answer is no… I’m just incredibly bored and have a wealth of time.  And to take advantage of that time to my best abilities, I decided to take a break from watching Chinese Drama Boss and Me interspersed with Harry Potter fanvids to update you on a recent film I watched called Train to Busan!  Beware… spoilers ahead!

Thoughts on W: Two Worlds

Hello everyone!  I know it’s been a ridiculously long time since I last wrote… What’s new, am I right?  I could give you my typical excuses or I could just accept the inevitable, I am incredibly lazy and spectacular at putting things off.

However… one plus of my radio silence is that I have a looooot of things I want to talk about.  The list goes on and on in terms of what I’ve been watching over the past couple of months, but the MOST PRESSING is… unsurprisingly… the drama that has already sparked so much conversation – W: Two Worlds.

Reply 1988 – Taek and Deok Sun

Hello everyone!  And Happy New Year!  I know it’s nearly February already but as per usual I’ve been busy with life and all the messy intricacies that come along with it, so I haven’t gotten around to writing anything.  But last night I (finally) finished the ridiculously long drama Reply 1988, so I decided to churn out a quick post about it – and specifically about the adorable OTP of Taek and Deok Sun.  If you haven’t noticed from the title, this will be spoiler heavy!

Currently Watching – Okitegami Kyoko no Biboroku

Hello my dear readers, few and nonexistent though you may be.  I felt like leaving you with a quick, mid-series review of the currently airing Japanese Drama Okitegami Kyoko no Biboroku, also known as The Memorandum of Kyoko Okitegami.

Kamisama No Iu Toori Review || As The God’s Will

It’s officially been… three years since my last blog post on this website.  For a time last year I was attempting to write a personal blog that detailed my life abroad in Japan (which you can find here, though again… check out my puny three posts… I’m so bad at commitment).  However, as I have just left Japan, and am now facing the abysmal dark hole of unemployment, I have been attempting to get in as many dramas/films as I possibly can and decided I might as well try and write a couple reviews.

So, without further ado, I give you my first review in three years.  I decided to dedicate it to a recent Japanese film I saw called As the Gods Will or Kami-sama no Iu Toori.  Apparently the film is based off a popular manga by Muneyuki Kaneshiro and Akeji Fujimura, but I’ve never read it and truthfully hadn’t even heard of it until the films promos started going viral.

Yeah… those are dead bodies… prepare for the gore

What I’m Watching!!!

Hi guys!

So I promised to try and post more regularly… and I’m kind of doing it! Sort of!  I’m currently swamped with work and interviews and life in general, so this is going to be a short catch-up post about what I’m watching right now.

First of all, possibly one of my new favorite dramas ever, the most amazing Flower Boy Next Door.

Piece Review

I’m back!  I realize I haven’t posted a regular update in quite a while (excluding my recent feminist rant), so I’m attempting to get back into my normal type of blogging by giving a short review of the Japanese drama Piece.  I have very conflicting emotions on this drama, so please bare with me.  Also, this review will contain spoilers, so if you’ve not watched it, beware!

The Awesomeness of the Female Characters in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

I realize that this is a departure from my usual *Asian male centric* posts, but I couldn’t help it, sorry guys!  I promise to come at you with more of my normal posts soon!

Can we just pause and appreciate how awesome the female characters in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind are?  I realize this is an old film, and many points like this may have been brought up already, but as I’m now rewatching (for probably about the 60th time) this film, I just have to talk about the female characters and how awesome they are.  In a shockingly large amount of romantic films, comedic films, hell films in general, women are portrayed as one dimensional, love-struck idiots who are ‘completed’ by their male counterparts and have nothing better to do than search for love.  This film is an ‘indie’ romance film.  Obviously, romance is centric.  However, depicted within this romance, there is a depth to the female characters that is shockingly unique compared to most films nowadays.

First, you get the main female Clementine, played by the amazing Kate Winslet.

Stayin’ Alive

Hi guys!

I know it’s been absolutely ages since I last posted anything, but I AM STILL HERE!!  It’s really been crazy these past few weeks with my dissertation and life in general, so I’ve literally had no time to spare for blogging.  After this week it should get a little better for me, and I promise to blog more over Christmas (because I will FINALLY have time).  Also next semester I think I’ll have more time, because my module load is way less, so be prepared for awesome blogposts from me at a much more regular pace!

So, I can’t write a long post, but just in case you guys are searching out dramas at the moment, I’ll let you know what I’m currently watching!

First and foremost, the AMAZING Jdrama Piece

Yes, my eyes alone will melt your panties off... don't deny it!

Moments that Get You in the Feels

Pardon the slightly cliche title for this post, but it is actually quite fitting.  I realize that in my last post I said I’d do a review of Rich Man Poor Woman, but I’ve decided to put that off at present.  Why, you ask me?  Well, for the simple reason that this morning, I finished watching Answer Me 1997 (also known as Reply 1997).  I briefly discussed that drama in my last post as well, but after finishing it, I  need to discuss it and something its perfection made me start thinking about.
