MovieReview (but not really): Suicide Squad

After a lot of rescheduling, Zahra and I finally went to watch this movie as late as today xD

It was pretty good for a chill person that just wanted to watch a super hero movie. In all honesty, it was pretty true to what most people said about it- how it was a disappointment. I mean, The Joker didn’t get anyyyy screen time. He also wasn’t the REAL Joker to me cuz he was so in love with Harley Quinn and that is NOT what the real Joker was. Otherwise, Harley Quinn was surprisingly my favourite character. She was funny and totally crazy. She was amusing.

HOWEVER, WILL SMITH THOUGH. Like, I don’t at all know anything about this Deadshot character, but damn, the movie totally was focused more on him than any other character. Including the Enchantress. I feel like they could’ve done more with the conflict and developed it more, but naaah.

Again, it’s not a bad movie, but it totally isn’t a good super hero one either. It’s worth a watch if you’re okay with treating these characters as not the real Joker etc., but otherwise, it’s not worth a second watch. Meh.

Zahra and I had fun though, so all’s good :3

Plan for Tomorrow- Ayesha’s Birthday & My Passport Interview

Sooo I’ve got two major things tomorrow. My interview at the embassy to renew my passport, and get my first “adult” one made that’ll last me ten years. (No pressure for the photo, or the signature. Not one but. Nuooope.)

More on that just now, but I also need to state- for the record~- that it is also Ayesha’s sweet seventeen Sassy Seventeen birthday bash. Much less of a bash, more of a crash. Seeing as we all invited ourselves to crash at her place. It’s going to be a casual affair (as casual as Ayesha can get), so we’ll just be playing a bunch of board games. I for one am super pumped and looking forward to this! I LOVE board games, and we’re even playing a  bunch of my faves- Cluedo, Pictionary, Taboo, “Foreheads” (the Lazy DIY version of Headbands, which is a charade like game.), and Credit Card Monopoly (never played that one before, so yeah!). Yay ❤

Ahem. Passport complaining time~

Er, maybe not now… I should be asleep. Gotta get up early tomorrow.

Um, there was the family album, basically proving I’m my parent’s daughter, showing my aging, school ID cards, etc, etc.

And I’ll fill it all out laterrrs, as Imma hit the hay now.
[#HayAbuse #BadPun, woot woot.]

So ciao~

Free! the Anime

So I started  a sportsy anime, Haikyuu. A show all about this super short kid that wants to play volleyball and be the very best that no one ever was as an Ace (a position that usually requires loads of height). And the constant talk of believing in yourself, and hilarity, and just typical school closeness, with super sappy lines had me!

Epic Fanart. But they messed up the numbers on the shirts =Y

I missed anime like that so MUCH. I think the last sports anime I’ve ever seen was…I can’t even recall! That’s how long it’s been. And I fell head over heals for this genre then.

But this anime is still ongoing! And I wanted to binge watch an epic sports anime.  NOW.

So I opened up a new tab, and did some searching. I came across Korouko no Basket, and a few others. (Watched the first ep, but I got hooked on something else after Alya told me I was on the look for sport anime.)

I started watching Free!, and anime all about swimming. It’s super short, complete, and only has twelve episodes, half the normal amount of episodes most anime have. It was awesome though! I seriouslyyy loooved it~!

I actually reaaally liked it! It was adorable, and in such a short time, I did manage to bond with a bunch of the characters! That’s no easy feat with just twelve episodes, ya know 😉

But, my fave characters have got to be Haru/Nanase, Rin, and Nagisaaaaa~

Nagisa’s awesome, fun, bright, and just generally happy. Haru, you come to love. And Rin- looks so damn cool, right?- but his creepy shark fangs look a bit frightening, especially paired with those red eyes…

More pictures~!

Why is Rei randomly just THERE in the background..?

This picture ❤

Kinda Cute Chibis!

Although I watched the first eleven episodes in two days, I didn’t watch the last one til last night. (After three ish days.) But I loved it’s ending, and it ended with THIS picture;

READ THAT ENGLISH LINE. READ IT.

See you next Summer!

Which means there was the initial intention to make a second season!! So I did some more googling, and what to I find? THIS!

Dat Blue Two.

A confimation on it’s release- this JULY ❤ (I found out here.)

Yay :3 I can’t wait now!

 

A Quest at the Mall

This all happened yesterday, but I was too sleepy to type this entire story out.

My mom needed to buy my cousin a birthday present, so I tagged along. That’s literally how this story starts. I was just bored at home, and felt like going outside. (I know, how crazy of me, right?)

This turned into a quest very quickly, as soon as we climbed onto the escalators. See, my mom got onto it, but these two aunties managed to get between us, and so I was behind them. So it’s my mom, then them- a granny, a mother, and a little kid- and then finally me.

The kid is like on drugs or something- he was insanely hyper!- and had obviously just had over a spoonful of sugar, and was jitterbugging around, jumping up and down, constantly in motion. Then, he falls, drags Mama down with them, down a few steps to where I was standing, and dammit, I got stabbed in the ankle by that evil auntie’s heel!! I got stabbed in the ankle by an auntie’s heels!! I was also pushed, cuz damn she had some momentum going for her, and nearly slipped down the escalator (it was going up.) but since I’d gripped the railing thingie just in time, I was safe. After we got off the escalator, I gave them at least a 7 meter radius, and walked around them to my mom. That auntie was evil =/

No joke, after the kid did all that, I was expecting at least an ‘I’m sorry”, SOME form of an apology, but no, she just scolded him playfully, with the most lyrical fake voice ever, to make it sound like she was the best mother ever, scolding her kid for misbehaving, right in public, cheers to her for being so reasonably disciplined, and all that. I mean, you could HEAR the smugness in her voice, like she was thrilled to be in the spotlight- her time to shine. Bleh, desperate for attention. Another thing- who goes, just for the heck of it, shopping in heels? If your out with friends, or it’s a date, and you want to look nice for and to impress the people you are going with fine, but if you’re going with your son that’s barely capable of putting one foot in front of the other- wait, that more aptly describes his clumsiness, not his age…since he wasn’t that young. Son that’s around six or seven? and your mother, who obviously doesn’t care about what color she’s wearing so long as it’s all warm? Are the heels really necessary then?

And then, on our way up to this store Breakout, I noticed for the first time ever who was at the mall. Usually, I just notice if there are a lot of people or not. I don’t bother to specify and notice- hey, there are loads of old people today, or something of that sort. But today I did, and there were waaayy too many kids for comfort.

And in Breakout, bam!, it’s full of little kids! It was terrible, I was trying reaaally hard to avoid them.

Oh, and don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate kids. Well, I don’t particularly like them either…I guess it’s like people, if I like them I do, but that doesn’t mean I like all those of that age group…something like that? It depends which kid, and I’ll give you an opinion. I might love one, hate another, and just find the other three boring. But otherwise, I don’t dislike all kids in general. Kind of neutral about it? But I do have a general they-should-get-lost-ew-why-are-they-here?! attitude towards most kids HERE. That’s cuz parents let them do whatever the SHIT they want to do. And this story will explain what I mean. Since I don’t just mean that the parents will toss them their iPhones and give them their own by the age of five, I mean- well, you’ll get it soon enough.

So I’m standing towards a corner of the store featuring the guys’ stuff, cuz I was helping my mom pick something out for my brother. We finally decided on this hoodie that was stripped. But we were arguing on the color. They had this blue an green stripped one, and a navy blue and yellow one. I found the yellow one cooler, and I think my Que has waaayy too much blue and green in his wardrobe as it is. But, as we stand there debating it out, there’s this mannequin right next to me. And this little girl trying to climb it. Yes, she was in fact trying to CLIMB it. And her dad’s like right there, and he doesn’t even bat an eye, until she along with the mannequin come tuuumbling down, and she just wriggles away, jumping towards the next closest mannequin, and tries to get to the top of that one. The mannequin, explodes into an assortment of limbs on impact with the ground, right next to where I’m standing, and I narrowly avoid being impaled with a pink plastic arm.

See? Forget parenting, there’s no CONTROL over these kids here, and by the time they get to something like five, they will be untamable BEASTS. Fear them, and run. That’s the best advise I can give. When forced in their company, be wary, very very wary. But don’t flinch or show any indication of anything other than happiness and rainbows- they smell fear!

And that was my adventure at the mall. Them kids were out to get me O.o

HxH- Chimera Ant Arc- The Birth of the King & A Single Super Saiyan

I CALLED IT! I TOTALLY FREAKIN’ CALLED IT~!!

*Mandark’s evil laugh/my success laugh* HA HA HA HA!
Muahahahahahaha xD

What am I on about? THIS.

When they started the Chimera Ant Arc in Hunter x Hunter (2011 remake), I wondered what the king would look like. And I didn’t really put much thought into that either, as a matter of fact, I barely even finished wondering that when Brian the Brain went, “Oh, it’d be totally epic if it turned out to be Cell.” Super perfect, ironic, and making this anime much more like other super popular/famous anime. I already found a link with Naruto, and now, will it have a link with Dragon Ball Z too? (wait, doesn’t Cell show up in GT..? I don’t know. GOOGLE~!)

Nope, I was right, he is from DBZ. And, just look! This is Cell, an insect-like humanoid thingie. Oh, and Cell’s got a bunch of different ‘forms’ as everyone on Dragon Ball Z does =P

Cells

Kay, now that you know/remember what Cell looks like, check out this…This is the King, Meruem, and my first thought was obviously “I CALLED IT!!” because he looks just like Cell! Well, OK, not JUST like, buuuuut pretty darn close.

This is the King, Meruem.

Meruem_appearence_2011^Was I not totally right?!

Ok, if they don’t look a like, they still look similar. And they even have similar POWERS!

Liiiike, Cell, in the form with the tail thing (same enough tails too!), he can literally drink humans, to become stronger. Well, if the humans strong, then it’s strength will be transferred to Cell, making Cell stronger. This King here does the same thing with eating humans. But it’s with those humans that can use nen, but that’s just the plot of the show. After all, Cell would naturally be a LOT stronger if he drank Super Saiyans through his tail instead of eating normal humans, but once more, that’s gotta do with the plot. Since Hunter x Hunter’s only got one Super Saiyan while DBZ obviously has so many more.

Hm? What’s this? You don’t know of the Super Saiyan in HxH?? Well, allow me to enlighten you. See, remember the Phantom Troupe? The Spider? Yup, them.

Well, one of them, named Shalnark, #6. The guy with the remote controller? The dude who’s a manipulator? This guy-

shalnaaark

gjyf

 

Yeah, well, in one episode, during the Chimera Arc, he was forced into a corner, and he used a solution he isn’t particularly fond of using (cuz it always ends up with the big guys back in the animation studio getting buried up to their necks in Law Suits.)

HE goes SUPER SAIYAN. To be perfectly clear, and technically correct, he goes into ‘auto pilot’ which is when he sticks one of the antennae he carries around to jab into people he wants to control, into himself. And sets it to ‘auto pilot’. Bam- he instantly goes blonde, and there’s even and aura of yellow! He goes Supar Saiyan.

shalnark super saiyan version

So that’s the one single Super Saiyan in HxH. So far. Dun dun duuuun.

And with that, I poof off to enjoy some more HxH on the last day of my winter holidays D=

I also continued watching BeyBlade today~! ^_^

And and I finished Toradora…but more on that later =P

The Great Gatsby- Gatsby’s Green Light

I was thinking about The Great Gatsby…both the book and the movie (although I haven’t read the entire book yet. Still stalled on Chapter VII =P =/ ) when I started to try and literary analyze the green light.

I thought- if I’m going to literary analyze anything, might as well record the thought. Maybe I’ll laugh at it later, for being so off or for thinking something so naive (perhaps that would be possible if the future-me was ever mature. Hah. Now that IS a laugh.). Maybe I’ll nail it on the head. Maybe I’ll just do it for fun. Maybe all three.

At first, I just thought it to represent something like the unattainable, or the desires that are just out of reach. But then, the scene from the movie came in, the MOTION of the green light and this thought just struck me-

It’s like a Lighthouse. It’s necessary. It guides you home, it’s a beacon of hope, it lights the way in darkness, its light is so appealing and beautiful compared to the bleak, pressing darkness, and on top of it all- If you get too close too it, it’ll harm you, rather than help you. You can’t sail your boat too close to it, or your boat will crash and sink.

And all that, all that, is what Daisy is to Gatsby.

We need to go deeper!

I had to, I just did =P I couldn’t possibly resist xD …

ahem. So anyways, I could go deeper to take the light to represent Daisy’s house, not her. But that would also end up involving Tom, and the estate, and it’s location, in comparison to Gatsby’s. Meh, no, that’s TOO deep, and confusing, and not worth getting into. Imma leave it at my initial idea.

I wonder if that made any sense at all… Or if my opinion was totally off ^_^ I wanna ask my seniors who analyzed this book in Literature now, to see where my idea stands to the opinion of Khilji/KillJoy, the Scholar of Literature, and the Great-Grandmother of the Furies.

Literature IS all that. Lyrical Literature keeps you lively and dainty.

#EmphasisthroughAlliteration. Mhmm. It’s a thing. xD
