This space thriller filled opened last week on Oct. 4th and it seems like everyone is in LOVE with Gravity. I had added the film to my to-watch list. Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney this blockbuster hit has already grossed 55.8 million dollars?? I am strongly upset about two things, one, being I will not be able to see this film for another week, and second being the fact that if I had not accidentally clicked on a link to the trailer of this film on Youtube it may have never even made it onto my radar.

Being a huge fan of all things space related, be it sci-fi or reality, I am buzzing and jumping and itching to see this movie!! I have since been trying to avoid anyone I know who has already seen it , without me, as well as blogs and fan forms in relation to this movie. I bring it up now because while I was looking into more info about Machete Kills on Rotten Tomatoes when of course all of my attention was drawn to Gravity. But a last here ends my pre-viewing rant about this film.

I will try my best to avoid talking about it until my actually viewing, goonies^__^

Why I Watched I Am Number Four

Because I watched Beastly and it was way better than I thought so I figured I’d give Alex Pettyfer another shot at impressing me…..sadly I have to say he failed. There were so many moments while watching this movie I kind of just went What?……What is happening right now?” You know when I wasn’t laughing so hard at how ridiculous everything was and how serious everyone was trying to act about the entirety of the situation. 

It wasn’t until 25-30 minutes until the end of the film that things started to get good. Now I have not read the book I Am Number Four, or the Lorien Legacies series by Pittacus Lore, however, I have put it on my to read list because I strongly believe that the story had the potential of being way better than the way it was presented in the film. Because let’s face it who doesn’t love a good Sci-fi story about aliens living among us? I know I do! Makes me think of the good old days when Roswell was still on the air. Now THAT was a GREAT show.

Getting back on topic here, I felt like the film was trying to hard to cover everything the book series covers which is what lead to it’s failure. 

Summing up the Film I Am Number Four:

Plot holes, cliches–gaa-lore– a lot of inconsistencies in regards to the direction in which the story was suppose to go. Something that was really annoying and not really clear to me was why there was such a pushing need to have a love story between the main character, John Smith aka Number Four aka Alex Pettyfer, and–the lamest blonde wanna be photographer ever–Sarah Hart aka Dianna Argon. I wanted to like her, honestly I did but her character made it so hard not to. When ever she was in a scene she never sounded or acted as smart or as rebellious as she is painted to be.
No to mention how the two of them are literally just kind of thrown together, I mean he–John/Number Four– is not even there five minutes and he has dinner at her house??!? With her family?? And then because they know so much about one another  they go up to her bed room together, alone. And he just picks up her personal journal and she just lets him?!?!? BS!

But what really got my blood boiling was when she gave him one of her Nokia SLR cameras. I mean,why the hell did she give him that? Not only was it an expensive vintage camera, but one of her favorites to a complete stranger?!?!? False. Everything about this is just—-no, wrong.

Moving on to the the bad guys/alien villains:
They were not at all scary, why? Oh, so many reasons but off the top of my head: they’re wearing these 1970’s platform shoes with bell bottom pants, shopping in the super market and driving around in this brand new black Camero. Wow! I didn’t know killing royal aliens paid so well on here on Earth.

When Daniel/John Smith/ Number Four& The Discovery of His Powers or Legacies:
One second, John/Number Four has no idea about his powers/legacies, as his hands start glowing and heating up in class, and then the next he is suddenly aware of all of his powers?  And greater still we see him testing them for all of five seconds resulting in him not only having complete control over them but he has also somehow mastered them…… BULL.

Number Six & The Shape Shifting Alien Dog (Possibly The Only Good Parts of The Movie):
She was bad ass and consistent! I’d watch the film again for her scenes only because she saves everyone, covers John/Number Four’s tracks in the beginning of the film and could clearly hold her own against the weird 1970’s bad guys who some how managed to kill several of the other royal legacies holders. And the little alien shape shifting dog like creature was a nice touch but how Number Six, aka Teresa Palmer, knew who or what it was having not met the dog was a little strange and random. 

“The dog just shape shifted!”-Sam

“Oh that’s because he is your dog from our home planet, he came here with us to protect you(only you didn’t know it)”–Number Six

Thus ends this movie review rant. Till the next time goonies!(oooh Goonies……)

kdrama Que Sera Sera, what a disappointment…..

I’ll try to make this short and painless though I think that will be very difficult. the Kdrama Que Sera Sera was in my opinion was a complete wast of time. Which is sad and hard for me to say because I loved it up until episode 9. I was so happy and glad the for once the lead was sticking it to the lead jerk after he continuously bullied, belittled, picked and hurt her. Han Eun Soo ( the lead girl) was at first a little too timid and annoying at first but she grew on me and Kang Tea Joo (the lead guy) was such a player and a jerk that I was rooting for the two of them because she actually seemed good for him. She was brutally honest and straight forward with him and after he kissed her on a wim without giving her a real reason why or admitting that he may have actually found her cute she did the right and smart thing by going to the police station and filing a sexual harassment case against him. XD to me it was a win-win situation and well deserved on his part.

 Then in a drunken state on Eun Soo’s part we see a little hint and spark of emotion which made me happy and you could see a change in him towards her in his eyes but it didn’t take long for him to completely crush her and break up with her. That kind of behavior on his part left him no right to even speak to her or for him to be offend or hurt when she acted and treated him the way that she did afterwards.

 After their split, Eun Soo soon begins to bond and grow closer to her new boss Shin Joon Hyuk who was pretty amazing through out the entire series. He was in love with his serrate sister and pushed her away because he did not feel he was worth being with her because of his background. His feelings for her were strong and pure but out of everything he wanted her, Cha Hye Rin, to be happy. Unknowing to Joon Hyuk that Hye Rin and her new bo, Tea Joo were only pretending to be together to make him jealous. This never stopped Tea Joo from messing with Eun Soo every single time he had the chance,especially when he was given a job at the department store where Joon Hyuk was the CEO and Eun Soo was an intern. AND It didn’t stop Eun Soo and Joon Hyuk from forming a relationship I am happy to say. However, in episode 9 when the two couples end up going on a fashion i.e. business related trip together things take a bad/weird and down right twised turn for the worst. After an intense dinner together, Tea Joo gets drunk and goes to Eun Soo’s room where she and Joon Hyuk were together on the balcony.

He gets even more angry and decides to blurt out that he, Joon Hyuk, and Hye Rin were lovers. ( this should not have ended the way it did because in several scenes in the drama it is clear that Eun Soo knows or it is hinted to her that Joon Hyuk was at one point with Hye Rin, but whatever) Eun Soo responds to Tea Joo by sticking with Joon Hyuk and kicking him out of her room. Soon after Tea Joo goes to get drunk yet again and cries at the bar which I enjoyed seeing, and Joon Hyuk apologies for not telling Eun Soo about his real relationship with Hye Rin and that he wanted the trip to be a real beginning and a fresh start for the two of them.

At that point I was on cloud 9. But however the happiness soon fades when the following night Tea Joo barges into Eun Soo’s room kisses her and attacks her, pinning her down on the bed as she attempts to stop him. Hye Rin finds them and what do you think she does? She attacks Eun Soo. Why? I have no idea but you’d thin she try to help her after just nearly being raped. Tea Joo pulls Hye Rin off of Eun Soo and pulls Eun Soo, who’s cloths are ripped out of the room and out to the entrance of the hotel where he confesses his so called love for her. Eun Soo pulls free and walks out into the rain where Tea Joo follows and she turns around and kisses him. 0____o I’m sorry but this is where I stopped watching and dropped the show from my drama list.

Maybe its just the western in me and god I hope I’m wrong but when a guy forces himself on you like that and you are trying to push him away I would never go anywhere with him, listen to what he has to say or accept him in any way shape or form. And all I kept thinking was WHERE IS YOUR SEXUAL HARASSMENT SUIT NOW????? YOU CAN CLEARLY FILE ONE NOW. What is with these girls? Do they like being treated like trash and not human beings? WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU CHOOSE A GUY LIKE THAT???

To get over the nasty ease it left in my mouth and head I had to re-watch Coffee Prince, no that I’m complaining because it definitely brightened me up but geez louise. Needless to say I stopped watching the drama altogether because it is clear how it ended. But I want to say a few good things about it, up until ep 9 there were a lot of good revenge moments and cute ones between Eun Soo and Joon Hyuk.

  UPDATE ON OTHER DRAMAS: Still watching City Hunter because I don’t want it to EVER END! ^_^ I have to finish Rooftop Cat, although the relationship between the two leads reminds me of Tea Joo and Eun Soo. I can’t wait until the new kdrama BIG comes out!! I’ve missed Gong Yoo oo much!! And there are at least three other drama’s i will try to start watching this week as well. *sigh* so much to do, so little time. Till next time, annyong. ^_^
