Just a Reminder…

~

…that a perfect MV already is out there!

Having watched my favorite movie, and having read my favorite book, I couldn’t help but think of my favorite MV too! And strangely, when I re-watched them, they seemed strange to me as if I did not watch them endlessly when they first came into my life! Good thing because I feel a strange new love for it now, especially after seeing that the two parts remind of me The Handmaiden, in that they compliment each other with one filling in the blanks of the other.

I love this MV, these vids and the song!

Abandoned“, “The Footsteps of my dear Love” and “All I Want” are among my top five songs ever! I could listen to them none stop on a loop!

Night!

the-handmaiden-poster-4

The Handmaiden is finally here!!

Almost a year and we finally get it in our Cinemas!

Hallelujah!

You will not believe it but I am actually feeling pretty anxious! It is finally happening! it feels like last April all over again! Oh God, am I going to survive the cinema experience? I guess we will know in these three days!!!

Thank the Lord I have unlimited! I am working all through the holidays but believe you me anytime I can I am watching this movie! I don’t care if the times are back to back! I don’t care if I have five minutes to make it to work (place is only 10 mins away). I am watching this movie any day I can until it finishes its run!

Oh man, I am so not ready for this! Almost a year and still not!

Bless this movie! Bless Park Chan-wook. Bless our ladies Kim Min-hee and Kim Tae-ri!

Bless everything!

Never Forget

Whaaat

Dear Yukirin Fans out there, never forget that one time that Yukirin got to stand in front of the Elite, in front of Yuko-senpai (who was No.1 at the time during the Everyday Kachu period), in front of all the Kami 7 (she wasn’t yet a Kami at the time, man now that I think about it, this should have been such a spoiler for her new title of God Slayer but really, no one was expecting it!), Mayuyu and Sashiko on the last line with Yukirin at the front alone!!!

I shall never forget! Now I am only waiting for that moment to happen again (which I doubt it will because if she is to centre again, I am betting it will be with someone else again but if it is Mayuyu, no complaints whatsoever! If it does happen though there will be tears! Probability of Yukirin centring as single at the time was way higher than it is right now and the wait too long compared to the first time! And if this time it is not a TV performance but a single, then all that much more delicious. Though actually centring on TV is actually also quite powerful in and of itself. But then again, the feeling won’t be the same as say being in front of the likes of Yuko and Acchan.

Ah, the trifles of being a Yukirin fan…

A Good Death…

logan-bilde-4…Is It’s Own Reward!

Time for a confession dearest Readers! Today I have cried more than I have ever cried watching a movie in a long time! That movie is of course ‘Logan’. This is the final time we will ever get to see Hugh Jackman play this wonderful character, hell, I think even Mr Stewart!

The very first movie I watched in cinemas was 2000’s X-men! Since then I have watched every movie because of Wolverine. If there are others too who grew up with these characters then  I warn you before hand if you have not watched this movie yet. Take some tissues with you! Do not be embarrassed when you break down while watching this movie! Everyone who is not new to these characters (and even those who are) will not even put up a fight! You are all going to cry your eyes out!

Why old fans, well, for me I was not crying because of what I was seeing on the screen but rather what the consequences and implications of what was being said and shown is what made me completely break down!

If you are only into this now, you will not appreciate Professor X and Wolverine’s relationship. You will not understand what they are feeling in the events of this movie. You will not fully grasp their inner conflict or the hidden meanings in their words they exchange!

For example, the moment that hit me the most was during a certain scene when the WTF moment happened and we finally saw what the evil organisation’s ‘success’ experiment was that saw them give orders to terminate the kids. What will make most, especially the new ones cry is not why I was crying. It was the implied and the unfortunate!

Okay, this is a spoiler so stop here if you do not want to know.

When Xavier died, it was not his death that broke me but rather what he implied just before the ‘success’ killed him and then the fact after. I never read the books so I had no idea but we find out (it is implied) that Professor X is the one that killed off all the mutants. Yeah, let that sink in your brains! If you are attached to these characters as I am then you think of all those people that Xavier cared for, all those people that believed in him, loved him and he snuffed them all out just like that!

Like, what even…

Logan survived obviously because of his abilities and physicality.

So all this time they have been surviving while Logan tried to both protect Xavier and the world because his brain was now a weapon of mass destruction! Seriously, when Professor X lost control I was truly terrified. They showed off his un-surpassed abilities perfectly.

And all this time he did not know what he had done. Both is own mind and the medicine that Logan had been giving him made him forget and prevent him from remembering what he had done because, man, can you imagine what he had done if he had remembered?

But he did remember, and just as he was confession to Logan, just as they were about to get that respite especially Logan, who had to live with this secret all by himself, the truth being spoken would have saved them both at least a handful of trauma but guess what happened…Xavier was talking to the wrong Logan. It was another clone of his and just as Xavier had finished his confession that would have been able to surely give Logan some much needed peace, he took three adamantium claws to the chest!

So Logan still doesn’t know that Charles knows. He did not get to hear his confession and Charles did not get to lift that burden off his last pupil. They were robbed off that! But at least Charles did not die thinking that Logan was the one to kill him. That would have been completely savage!

To close up, it was not that Charles died  that made me cry but the fact that he had killed all of the mutants off, the fact that Logan knew and was saving him from finding out. The fact that Logan knew and he still cared for the Professor so much. The fact that they were robbed of the chance to leave this heavy burden aside between them.

And this is just one example!

So yeah, I cried so much I was wiping my face in the cinema like I was six or something. This movie was so good. So good that it totally failed at what it went out to do! That is that it was supposed to let go of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine but now I want him even more than I have ever wanted him! Looks like this is it for me! Without him I have no more interest in this universe.

God, this is just like Idol graduation! I mean the man has been playing the character for 17 years!!!! I should give him some slack. But hey, five more fans will take my place when I leave as they follow these new Gens but for me Hugh is Wolverine, Famke is Jean, Patrick is Professor X, Ian is Magneto, Halle is Storm, Anna is Rogue, James is Cyclops! These are my X-men and if this really is Wolverine’s last stand, then I am done too.

Thank you Fox, you got me into action movies with your first X-men movie but without Hugh, I have no business being here either, so, goodbye. We had a nice ride together, you and I!

Goodbye!
