Beauty And The Beast was a let down on my end, didn’t feel the magical sweep of the romance, top-notch graphics and animation though, and I do love the bantering of the various house objects – they, to me, brought magic to the film. On the other hand, Kong: Skull Island was an unexpected enjoyment. I came for Tom Hiddleston but stayed for Kong; what a surprising twist to put us humans as the bad guys. What I also didn’t anticipate was the beauty-and-the-beast element placed at the end. I swooned. Was surprised to see Jing Tian in the movie…..who was absolutely disposable for all points and purposes. Lol. And you know I adore her but here, she was just there.
I know I’m slow, if only I were a robot, recapping would be a breeze! So let’s keep spoilers from future episodes away from this post (we can discuss book changes, of course!) Last recap was really fun, thanks to everyone who chimed in. The discussion was lively and I think we all learned a thing or two, even if we are on different shipping camp. It’s okay to think differently than others (it is after all subjective), as long as we keep the discussion polite and respectful, I think we can make it to episode 54 without losing anyone. Lol. Let’s promise that you guys will watch and suffer with me through this arduous journey because the death count is officially on and you never know when your favorite character is on the chopping block!
Something’s in the water, I’m writing yet another recap. What’s with me?!! The desire to recap is sky-high in my system these past few weeks. I’m already behind on Hua Qian Gu recaps too. =/ But anyway, the fantasy-horror drama at hand, Wu Xin The Monster Killer, is currently being streamed on sohu with a batch of new faces. I have never seen any of the actors before and it was a refreshing hour for the eyes (yes the popular ones are cute and shiny, but I root for underdogs harder!) While the premiere episode did not grip me with the expected intensity, it promises a brisk pace, multiple mysteries, and best of all – plenty of good characters with good intentions to ground us into their story.
