News Train - Vampires, Mermaids, and Rogues
Welcome! It’s that time again – where I talk current shows and movies I’m watching at the moment!
Current Shows I’m Watching
Legend of the Blue Sea – I’m enjoying this sweet and funny fairytale retelling. This show may not be as addictive as My Love From Another Star (which starred the same leading actress Jeon Ji-Hyun and has the same writer) but it’s fun, silly, romantic and more heartfelt as the show goes on.
Hwarang – I thought I would hate it. I actually kinda love it. But not for the reasons I thought I would first. Initially I had hoped for a more accurate portrayal of the Hwarang, more in vein of Queen Seondeok (which wasn’t that accurate, but still). This show is more spoofy and silly, but it balances that well with intensity and emotion. I really like the three leads. Hopefully the show continues to be fun and funny!
Movies I Watched
Star Wars: Rogue One – not a bad film. Better than I expected. But I can’t imagine ever wanting to see it again, as it was rather boring and unemotional. I’ve seen mixed feelings for the movie; rave reviews or dissatisfied viewers. I thought the plot was well done. Just couldn’t connect with the characters.
Vampire Academy – this movie is pretty bad. And I still don’t like vampires, lol. But I did watch it all the way through. I didn’t think I would get past twenty minutes, but about that time the story started to pick up. Overall, a pretty lame movie. I liked the second lead romance a thousand times more than the main leads.
Lemmie know what you’re watching or excited about seeing soon!
