Updated: Pictures added~
I watched three DVDs last weekend. Okay, and I watched loads of anime and read loads of manga online too on Thursday (my free day) and Saturday (before the concert) and Sunday. Here are them in a capsule...
Let me just get this off my chest first. Remember just last weekend I was swooning over 38 year old Wubai and exclaiming that I want to marry him and, no not marry since he's already married, but you get the idea. I was so in love with him. Anyway, just after watching all those anime and reading all those manga, I've a new fancy. Natsume from Gakuen Alice. And he's only 10 years old. I've gone from coffin snatcher to cradle snatcher in like 2 minutes flat. kauz...
Okay, back to the three DVDs I rented. Each featuring loves of mine. Think I've the heart of the flowing water and water flowers... (If you don't get the Chinese saying, nevermind...)
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Jonny Depp is damn shuai~
The one point off is because of the divergence from the original book.
Owen Wilson is damn shuai~
The two points off is because it's the typical Hollywood romantic comedy, together with those cliches and predictable plot.
House of Flying Daggers
Takeshi Kaneshiro is damn shuai~
The five points off is that Andy Lau is not as shuai as I thought, maybe because he was beside Takeshi Kaneshiro, stand alone, he won't be that bad looking. NOT! The plot sucked. The twists were so terrible that everytime something happened I went "crap!" and Zhang Ziyi sucked, she had this mosquito bite thingie on the face along the jaw bone. The pace of the movie was so slow that even the blood and the fighting scenes, stuff I really dig, did not interest me. Maybe it's due to the sad watching at home experience, but I really didn't think it deserved that high grade the IMDb people gave it. Probably those people are just acting arty farty.
I love shuaiges~ Be it Wubai, Natsume, Jonny Depp, Owen Wilson, or Takeshi Kaneshiro, all of them have their different appeal that I go gaga over, like totally~
I'm going back to read Gakuen Alice now~ This is a really juicy part.
Before the Christmas dance party, Luca kissed Mikan on her cheek to thank her, of course it's obvious that he likes her la, but that's not the point. The main point is that during the dance party, Luca called Natsume to dance with Mikan since Luca had danced with Mikan during the festival dance party while Natsume didn't. So Natsume and Mikan danced. Then someone pushed them and Mikan fell on top of Natsume, accidentally brushing her lips over his. But Mikan insisted that they did not kiss, just the teeth knocking on him.
THIS IS NOT THE END OF STORY!!!
Then later Mikan met Natsume again. Natsume complained that Mikan's a bad kisser. Mikan still insisted that they did not kiss. And guess what that guy did in response? He kissed her again, right smack on the lips. Wet kiss. And since it was a couple of pages (pages! not frames.) long, it's probably a very long kiss. awww~ Natsume~ shuai~
Updated: the picture of a page (out of a few others) of the kissing scene.
Okay, I'm going back to see what's Mikan's reaction to that kiss. It's definitely a kiss, she can't deny that. And I want to see Luca's reaction if he knows. aww... Wonder what will happen to Luca and Natsume's relationship now... wahaha~
Updated: I'm into a couple of pages more. It's awkwardness~
(This is when they were forced to do clean up together and there's a blackout. Both reached for Mikan's hands not knowing the other did the same. awww...)
