“Extraordinary You”- disappointed me

ABOUT THE DRAMA :

extra kdramaWhat would you do if you found out that you were in fact a character in a comic? And an extra character on top of that? Change the course of the story, obviously!

Eun Danoh is a 17 year old high-school student from a wealthy family who suffers from a lifelong heart condition that inevitably means she will not live past her teenage years. However, when Danoh realizes she is experiencing long gaps in her memory as well, she comes into the unhappy inheritance of another fact in her life: she is a character in a Korean webtoon and all of her actions are predetermined by the artist who draws her. To make matters worse, she discovers she is only a supporting character in the cast. With her newfound understanding of the world she inhabits, she is determined to find true love in her own plot-line and circumvent the author’s plans for her character by utilizing the flashes of storyboard she alone is able to see.

Country: Korean

Status: Completed

Released: 2019

Genre: Comedy; Fantasy; Friendship; Romance; School; Youth;

 

MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

plotIt’s such a unique idea, a comic book character that finds out she is in a comic book?! That’s such a cool thing. The first 8 episodes were amazing, I loved every second of it, though maybe it’s my new Goblin?! …but after those episodes, it started to drag. Like there was so much going on, but it felt so flat…I don’t know why. So disappointing…

It’s 3 stars out of 5 stars for me !

 

 

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?

coupleUnpopular opinion – I didn’t like any of the Love interests. For me, it was more a self-journey and you really didn’t need a love interest in this one. So we have the Haru the character who isn’t in the main story andcouple 2 Eun Danoh’s fiance in the comics Baek Kyung. There was chemistry between this love triangle,I just personally didn’t care about it.

 

HOW IT ENDS

(mild spoilers)

It was an open-ended ending, with a bittersweet feeling.  I’m okay with it, I kind of saw it coming.

PLOT

The story starts with a seemingly happy family, getting thru the dead of mother and one of the adopted siblings,who died in the prison. In just 3 episodes we are told a very interesting tale of love, betrayal and family secrets. And slowly one by one the secrets start to come to life. I loved the slow suspense and how well it was portrayed.tumblr_pecl48zcda1v5zaklo1_540

The Cast

I’m very happy with the cast, they did a great job portraying the life of a dysfunctional rich family in the 50s. Bill Nighy as the Leo Argyll was amazing,he truly steals the show!

Would I recommend?

Yes! Most definitely! It’s such an amazing adaptation of this novel. And in true Agatha Christie fashion, you will be guessing who did it until the last minute.

I watched Munsters for the first time AND here are my Thoughts!

The first time I heard about Munsters was two years ago when I looked up The Addams family original tv show. As someone who didn’t grow up in America and didn’t watch reruns of old sitcoms (like really old) like the Addams family, I was intrigued. The only thing why I didn’t watch any episodes till this day was because they are in black and white, and to be honest this wasn’t something I was into. But now finding all of the episodes on Youtube in amazing quality I was like”Why not watch it!”. I watched the first season this week and here are my thoughts…

Who are the Munsters?

source (2)

So the family consists of 5 family members we see in every episode(and some more who come and go). There are Lily(vampire) and Herman(Frankensteins monster), a married couple, they have a son whose name is Eddie(a werewolf).Grandpa(Lilies dad and a vampire) who makes different experiments in the basement, and then we have the only “normal” family member Marylin(she is Lilie’s niece). She is a “normal” teen who wants to find love and be more like her family. The Munsters live at 1313 Mockingbird Lane in the city of Mockingbird Heights, a fictional suburb in California. And they have a pet Dragon. The running gag of the series is that the family, while decidedly odd, consider themselves fairly typical working-class people of the era.

My Favorite Family member- Lily

85983In the first season, she is played by Yvonne De Carlo , and I can say I loved her in this role! I loved her look and how involved she was with her son and niece. And I can say …that contour ,giiirrrlll what are you using?!

 

The Plot

giphy (3) A family of friendly monsters have misadventures, never quite understanding why people react to them so strangely. The Munsters are a weird but honest family. … Marilyn (their niece) is the only normal one (that is the ugly duck of the family). I can say just one thing…6f3c7683e4ff15c9c9d6336ae4e40476Why isn’t it remade?! I would love to see a 2020 spin on this unique family and how they deal with everyday life.wRvFIBw I really like that this family is not overly rich like The Addams, but are just middle classed family living quietly in the suburbs, thinking about kids’ college funds and how to save/make some extra money on the side. I felt like I could relate to them much more than the Addams.

Would I recommend watching it?

YES!

Will I watch the 2 season?

Definitely!

*My Favorite Fall Spooky Movies*- Blogtober day 2

Photo by Aaron Burden on Unsplash

Hello, My Darlings and Hi if You are new here ! It’s so nice to see you. It’s day 2 of Blogtober and today I want to talk about spooky movies, my favorite ones to be specific. Some of those are Cute Spooky(as not terrifying) and some are Spooky Spooky (like actually terrifying).

Let’s dive into it!

Halloweentown

Halloweentown - 1998In a place called Halloweentown, good and evil look very different than one might expect. Thanks to a visit from Grandmother Aggie (Debbie Reynolds), Marnie (Kimberly J. Brown) and her family’s tradition of ignoring the Halloween holiday are about to change in the extreme. It seems that Marnie’s mother Gwen (Judith Hoag) has been hiding a big secret from her three children–all of them possess supernatural powers. giphy (6)Now that it’s Marnie’s thirteenth birthday, she must begin her training as a witch or lose her powers forever. While Gwen wants nothing more than to see her children grow up as “normal” humans, Grandmother Aggie and Marnie have other ideas. A brewing crisis between good and evil in the alternate world Halloweentown soon pulls the entire family through a portal and into an intense battle against ghouls, goblins and the warlock Kalabar (Robin Thomas).

Why I love this movie: It’s such a classical October movie! I remember the first time watching this and loving every second. Halloweentown was a place I wanted to visit as a kid, and see for myself this magical world. Great family-friendly, but still creepy movie(because let’s be real, talking skeletons are spooky and a little bit creepy).The plot is enjoyable not only for kids but adults too.

 

The Addams Family

Addams-Family-1991-3Gomez Addams laments the 25-year absence of his brother Fester, who disappeared after the two had a falling-out. Gomez’s lawyer Tully Alford owes money to loan shark/con artist Abigail Craven, and notices that her adopted son Gordon closely resembles Fester. Tully proposes that Gordon pose as Fester to infiltrate the Addams household and find the hidden vault where they keep their vast riches. Tully and his wife Margaret attend a séance at the Addams home led by Grandmama in which the family tries to contact Fester’s spirit. 8a56bb141eb042c7869dcae324b8192fGordon arrives, posing as Fester, while Abigail poses as a German psychiatrist named Dr. Greta Pinder-Schloss and tells the family that Fester had been lost in the Bermuda Triangle for the past 25 years.

 

Why I love this movie: Who doesn’t love The Addams family?! Gomez and Morticia Addams are couple goals! The story is amazing, and the acting is phenomenal.  Any Addams family movie is the perfect cozy and spooky thing to watch on a rainy day(but still family-friendly).Just make some hot cocoa and snuggle under a soft blanket and enjoy this spooky movie.

The Little Stranger

268x0wDuring the long, hot summer of 1948, Dr. Faraday travels to Hundreds Hall, home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries. The Hall is now in decline, and its inhabitants — mother, son and daughter — remain haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. tumblr_pi4zvtnZaB1rabru8o1_500When Faraday takes on a new patient there, he has no idea how closely the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own.Intended for a mature audience 

Why I love this movie: This dark, gothic drama is such a perfect movie to watch in the darkest October nights. The first time I watched “The Little Stranger” it was confusing, is it a movie about ghosts? Or a Serial Killer? We don’t know, That’s why I recommend you to watch it out!

Stoker

stoker-1200-1200-675-675-crop-000000India Stoker’s (Mia Wasikowska) world comes crashing down when her father (Jacki Weaver) dies in a car accident. Adding to the girl’s emotional turmoil is the sudden arrival of Charlie (Matthew Goode), an uncle whom she never knew existed.QctU Charlie moves in with India and her unstable mother (Nicole Kidman), and soon India begins to suspect that this charming and mysterious man has ulterior motives. However, instead of feeling alarmed, India becomes increasingly infatuated with him.Intended for a mature audience 

Why I love this movie: This one is a crazy ride from start to finish(buckle up), twisted thriller drama to keep you up in the darker October nights. Don’t want to spoil anything(no one likes spoilers) so get yourself a glass of wine, some chocolate and enjoy this masterpiece.

Favorite Christmas movies

200w_d (1)Hello, my darlings.Can you imagine we are so close to Christmas? Today I want to talk about movies…Christmas movies to be exact. I love to eat cookies, drink cacao and watch Christmas movies in December before Christmas, and I want to share with you all some of my favorites, So let’s start!

 

christmas with cranks

Christmas with the Kranks

Finally alone for the holidays, Luther (Tim Allen) and Nora Krank (Jamie Lee Curtis) plan to eschew the Christmas traditions and take a cruise in the Caribbean instead. This doesn’t sit well with their Christmas-obsessed neighbors Vic Frohmeyer (Dan Aykroyd) and Walt Scheel (M. Emmet Walsh), who are determined to win the annual “best-decorated street” competition, and the Kranks soon find themselves social outcasts because of their lack of Christmas spirit.

Why I love it: It’s a very funny, light and nice Christmas comedy. We love to watch it together with all the family.Recommend for a little “slice of life” Christmas comedy!

 

 

Home-Alone-1-v3

Home Alone

When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O’Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence and that he alone must protect the family home.

Why I love it: Cmon this is a classic. I have so many good childhood memories of this movie, we always watched it on the Christmas day.If you haven’t watch it then I definitely recommend you to see it!!!

 

the santa clause

The Santa Clause

Divorced dad Scott (Tim Allen) has custody of his son (Eric Lloyd) on Christmas Eve. After he accidentally kills a man in a Santa suit, they are magically transported to the North Pole, where an elf explains that Scott must take Santa’s place before the next Christmas arrives. Scott thinks he’s dreaming, but over the next several months he gains weight and grows an inexplicably white beard. Maybe that night at the North Pole wasn’t a dream after all — and maybe Scott has a lot of work to do.

Why I love it: It’s such a magical and cute movie, definitely for the whole family.I just love the storyline and the actors …Definitely, a great movie to watch before Christmas or on the Christmas day.

 

Taxi 3

220px-Taxi_3_filmA gang of thieves calling themselves the Santa Claus Gang are wreaking havoc, and the police can’t keep up. Police Captain Gilbert is distracted by a Chinese reporter writing a story on his squad, detective Emilien’s wife has just announced that she’s pregnant, and taxi driver Daniel is in the midst of a relationship crisis. After a string of mistakes in which the thieves outsmart the police time and time again with a reporter there to record it all, Daniel and his super-taxi pitch in.

Why I love it: Sometimes all the “magic”  gets too much for me, and this movie is my go to at the holiday season when I want something more action packed but still festive. A great movie,check it out if you like action/comedy movies.
