Day 10: Your Favorite Line/s by a Female Third Wheel

Unspoken Transformation - Mi-rae (Exhibition of Fireworks & Dae-soon (Get Karl! Oh Soo-jung)

Secondary lead women often speak volumes without saying a single word be it through evil glares or, my personal favorite, Meaningful!Wardrobe!Changes! The first instance of this I can remember was Chae Mi-rae in Exhibition of Fireworks who was in love with her dead fiance's brother. In any other show she very well could have been the heroine given the whole star-crossed lovers and parental disapproval thing she had going. But in Fireworks she was the second lead and therefore tried to rope her boyfriend into being her baby daddy and engaged in other under-handed tactics. About midway through the run of the show she adopted a severe ponytail to represent her newfound antagonist role and never looked back.

Dae-soon in Get Karl! Oh Soo-jung went through a similar transformation going from a bespectacled, soft-spoken jewelry store clerk into full on femme fatale mode in order to get. her. man. (and represent her evil female ways)

Previously, on Exhibition of Fireworks, people didn't act their age. They acted their shoe size. Click on the EoF tag if you want to know more, I don't want to talk about. The only really important thing is that In Jae FINALLY manned up and told Na Ra that he loved her. 


Let's be like fireworks )

To be honest, the only way I got to force myself to watch this episode again to recap it was because I promised myself I'd do recaps for Vineyard Man. That way, rewatching it won't be a complete waste of time :D
I may have gone to see Star Trek twice this weekend. I may have LOVED IT and would totally watch it again if I could. That was just a fun, well-written, well-acted, thoroughly enjoyable movie going experience.

I do still find it a little funny that so many people are freaking out over this movie, when just a short time ago Star Trek was a giant joke. Which, yeah, it was, but the movies (at least the majority of the TOS ones and Generations) were quite good. But this one really toned down the camp factor. But it did it without losing the heart of the original. So many times when things are redone they suck all the fun out of it, and they so didn't this time. It was just a fantastic movie, I can't say enough wonderful things about it. If you haven't seen it, DO. I don't care if you're not a Star Trek fan because you will like this movie. I honestly don't see how anyone couldn't.

The rest of Memorial Day weekend was spent helping my mother garden. So my chest is nice and red (not really sunburnt, just a little toasty). It wasn't too insanely hot which was a bonus, but boy was it a lot of work. Digging and hauling clay, planting, mulching (WHICH I HATE. Lugging around twenty bags of sweaty woodchips is not fun), etc. etc.

I finished ToGetHer as well. It was a little difficult to get through the last couple of episodes after stepping away from the series for a few weeks. Momo and Mars were still adorable, but the majority of the story had been told. They just wrung out a few more pieces of unneccesary drama, so that was a little tiresome. It was Momo's fault, for as strong as she was in the beginning, she got a little wishy-washy. I found it tiresome because it was so obvious how completely in love with her Mars was, she was only trying to fool herself. I think Mars may be one of my favorite drama characters ever. He grew from the entitled, self-absorbed (but HILARIOUS) man-child into a grown-up, caring, responsible and loving young man. It was wonderful. How could you not love him?

Now I am just waiting anxiously for the subs for the last episode of Atashinchi no Danshi to come out (the subbers took a break for the long weekend) and the first episode of Mr. Brain. I think I am going to start Painter of the Wind next, since it got good reviews from several people whose opinions I trust. I also need to finish capping the last episode of Exhibition of Fireworks so I can start watching and doing recaps for Smiling Pasta.

Oh! I also introduced my mother to True Blood (which is a little awkward to watch with your mother, since Jason Stackhouse can't keep it in his pants). It was kind of a vampirey weekend, since we watched the second and third craptacular Underworld movies. Now I'm all anxious for the next season to start. I need my summer tv now!

ETA: Saw a preview for Blood: The Last Vampire which looks AWESOME. It looks like a mixture of Kill Bill, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, AND VAMPIRES. I am very excited.

ETA RETURNS: Totally just spoiled myself for AtaDan ep 7 (which isn't even the one I am waiting to watch) and OMG. Must watch it nooooow. Chisato/Sho FTW.

ETA THRICE: Apparently there is a possible new Buffy movie in the works, with no involvement from Whedon at all. I have my issues with the man, but that may be one of the worst ideas ever.


Remember back when life didn't completely suck? )

I actually didn't cap the last two episodes when I watched them, which means I need to go back and do that. So, I'm not sure when I'll get those up.

You know when you have a really crappy day? And then the next day is WORSE? )

ETA: MUSIC! All that angst got you down? Check out Kibun Joujou from mihimaru GT. It's fun, happy hip-pop. It's also the random song I recognized when I played that drum game on Jen's DS.
No new Lost last night. So how did I spend my evening? Screencapping and summarizing!

The Love Square (parellelogram?) is collapsing in on itself... )
[ profile] dali_lamb said she wanted more updates on Exhibition of Fireworks as I watch it. I'm only too happy to oblige! Projects are awesome. I took these screencaps last night, I believe they are all from episode 6, but I'm not quite sure. I'm only going to do as many as I can get done during lunch. So here you go...

The mild happiness before the shit hits the fan. )

I just started watching Exhibition of Fireworks this week...


... for the plot. Don't give me that look. )
