Mini MovieReview: Finding Dory

Years later, after the most amazing movie Finding Nemo, Pixar announces a Finding Dory. And I don’t know what to do. Should I be crazy ecstatic this is happening? But what if they mess it up? What if this is another out of ideas idea where there are unnecessary sequels??

So many worries. So many expectations. So many fears.

But going in to watch it yesterday with Zahra, Asma, Musfirah, her cousin, Ambereen, Hadia, Haniya, and Mehreen, I am very glad to say:

It was everything I could have ever hoped for. Not even five minutes into the movie, I was bawling my eyes out. Through out the movie, I cried. It was just such an emotional movie for me to watch.

But it was just perfect ❤

Current Cosplay Plans for 2016

I haven’t cosplayed super seriously since Cruella De Vil and I am CRAVING cosplay now.

And I do realize there are a few cosplays I just haven’t either made the time for or haven’t had the money for, but regardless, I think compiling a list of the ones I aim to accomplish by the end of this year should help me satisfy some urge to walk outside dressed as L just so I can say I am at least trying (and so I  can continue procrastinating my English assignment and put off studying for my CS midterm- it’s not that kinda compiling. Eyyyy. Okay, shutting up now.)

I Sora (from the anime: No Game No Life)

Of course, this was planned as a couple cosplay with Alya and WE STILL INTEND IT TO BE DONE AS SUCH. We’ll just crop each other into our cosplay pictures. Why not? Or take advantage of the separate world and use some magical explanation to explain why we’re apart. (Maybe Tet kidnapped me?? But that doesn’t really make sense since they both have already explicitly said how they can’t be outside of a certain number of meters of each other before…)

I mean, Alya’s first ever wig was for her Shiro cosplay! Super fluffy and white like Killua’s hair, it didn’t suit it all that much, but her styling skills have come far in the few years and I’m sure she can fix it up properly now :3

II Wednesday Addams (from the tv show (and movie): The Addams Family)

Back in my crazy moving/traveling days, I have seen a buuuuunch of the original tv shows’ episodes on many different, suuuuper long flights. That’s where my love for the show began. But honestly, I don’t remember too much of them now, yet when the remake movie came out, I watched is super excitedly and now this Wednesday is the first one I think of whenever I heard Wednesday Addams 😛 So as strangely inconsistent as this will be for my usual original character love, Imma cosplay the reboot version. Oh wyell ^_^

III Nishinoya (from the anime: Haikyuu!) 

You might remember my fangirling over this awesome guy in another post when I actually decided I definitely would cosplay him. Imma just link that here now instead of boring you with more gushing over him :3

I’d better stop with the pictures now before I descend into a downward spiral of hunting down all amazing pictures of him…

IV Ellie (from the Disney Pixar movie: Up)

Now, I’ve wanted to through together an Ellie cosplay for the heck of it as a #CasualCosplay ever since I bought my overalls, but I never found a shirt I was happy with! I mean, I do have a button down blue floral shirt that could do in a pinch, but I reeeaaally want to do her justice. And I do have a yellow button down, but the collar is bedazzled with golden sequins….(My wardrobe is fabulous, I am aware.)

V Tohru Honda (from the manga(/anime): Fruits Basket)

One of the first manga I ever read, and definitely the first “longest” one I finished :3 I always thought to cosplay Tohru when I wanted to try out cosplay but not commit to it too much back in middle school. I still never have, but let’s see, maybe I will now!

(Even though now I’d totally rather do a gender bender Hatsuharu or Hiro 😛 Oh snap, I reeeeaaaaally wanna do a Haru now….)

VI Hatsuharu/Haru (from manga(/anime): Fruits Basket)

I think it would be incredibly fun to play around with his alter ego AND his usual personality ❤

VII Either Mikoto-chan or Kashima (or both?!) (from the anime: Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun)

Mikoto-chan:

Kashima:

This sly, Tamaki-level fox BUT WAIT-

Still gets more girls than poor Mikoto-chan which is why he’s so pissed here xD

But it’s okaaay. They both are so amazing and lovable I’ll probably just do both ❤

Wait, is this number VIII or IX now..? Ugh, forget this, it’s been fun, but I’m no way deciding all the cosplays I want to do in an entire year now! It’s fun to sponatneously decide to do one or discover something in your closet that would be perfect for a character so you just DO one.

Either way, this has been fun and I’ll hopefully think up of many more to dress up as too~ :3

Until later tonight when I die over the Haikyuu! season 2 final! (Yes, I’m a day late, but you know what, I was dying after having my gym lock-in and all that excersize. We all know how crazy it is to think of me excersizing at all, let alone the majority of the night, so yes, I slept early and missed my Haikyuu! watching time so I’ve been resisting the urge to watch it until tonight. YAY; get hyped!)

MovieReview- Accepted (2006)

Yeaaah so this movie IS ancient, and I hadn’t seen it til some time around a week and a half ago. What can I say, I’m not that big on watching movies. I’m usually out of it, and out of watching them. Oh well.

accepted

But I love this movie. It’s hilarious, random, awesome, and all tied together.  Inspiring and oddly comforting. After living my entire life having been stared at like a retard for not knowing the answer to “What do you want to do when you grow up?” or even what I want to do with my life, it’s great to think that there is at least ONE country doesn’t require you to have you’re entire future planned out or even a clue as to what to do with your time, let alone the remainder of your life. This movie’s brilliant, and it’s just an amazing look into the whole pressure of applying and getting into colleges and uni that has yet to come for me….but is just around the corner *gulp* Although this particular movie kind of skips that terrible step in the process of growing up.

Buuut forget that serious stuff, look forward to laughing at the funny and brilliant classes and courses offered by the South Hamron Institute of Technology. Yup, that is SHIT.

And while at it, might as well check out their rugby team, The SHIThead Sandwiches, and the mascot that goes along with it all.

My favourite character is the kid with ADHD as far as I can recall. The dude always dressed in a suit, all hyper and acting like a mental patient. That’s the one.

This movie makes it into my TimelessMovies list. And there aren’t that many movies there. There’s just one other since I’ve been compiling an ACTUAL list. It’s got Night at the Museum of course, but that’s all for now. I haven’t exactly added Animated Films to this list just because I’m going to dedicate them a whole other list. I know THAT one’s going to be veryyyyy long and consisting of a looooot of Disney…and Pixar, cuz Cars, and Toy Story, duh. Oh, and some Dream Works too. Who could forget stuff like Shrek.

Woah, woah, I’m going off track here. But what else is new…

So right, what’s this movie about? Well…

THere’s this boy, Something that starts with a B Gaines, and he doesn’t get into ANY of the unis he applies to. None what so ever. Not even his safe school. Or the safe safe school…His parents make it a big deal, how you need to go to university for, well, a life worth living. A marriage, a family, a house, a job, it’s all tied to higher education according to his parents. (I’m not disagreeing or agreeing. Hush hush.) In the end, with all the pressure, and his parents regarding him as a failure, he decides, simply, to reject rejection. In an angry rage, he scans a rejection letter from Hamron University, and forges an acceptance letter from the South Hamron Institute of Technology. He changes the logo from a red shield and a caps H to a blue one. And viola, he’s good to mail it off to his parents! In a drastic turn of events, he ends up getting even a campus for this SHIT uni. All to pull off the fraud. And that’s when some real SHIT goes down…since students actually show up at this supposed institute! (The reasoning they show up is muuuch more legit than how random it sounds in this description…but I’m trying to be vague so as not to steal details from the actual movie, and hence create a summary full of loads of spoilers.) So what now, Gaines? You’ve got a university full of students willing to learn, willing to pay their tuition fees, and yet it’s not a real university. So what happens now, once you’ve been -accepted- ?

*poof*
