別可憐我 反正我從來不會痛

I still hate Joss Whedon.

I thought Prometheus was pretty hilariously bad, like, bad to the point of loud laughter in the theater at multiple points, but this appears to be a minority opinion. I might have actually liked it anyway, there's tons of terrible campy scifi movies in my favorites lists, but it's so pompous it's hard to actually enjoy on, well, any level, except I guess visually. The effects are pretty good. But, seriously, this is a film in which characters with any sense of self-preservation whatsoever are basically painted by the narrative as freaks. I could argue for calling nearly every onscreen death a suicide.

Speaking of stupid science fiction, I have high hopes for the Total Recall reboot.

The romance subplot on Legend of Korra sucks a lot and it's actually killing my interest in the show. I'm starting to hate it whenever Mako does anything, because it's always gonna be a romance related thing and ick. And Asami's fabulous and deserves better than this jealousy bullshit okay.

Me and [personal profile] thor watched 華麗的挑戰 (Skip Beat!) just to watch Choi Siwon and Lee Donghae's glorious faces for fifteen episodes, and mission accomplished, we finished it this afternoon. Now I'm not sure what drama to start next, either 痞子英雄 (Black and White) or 籃球火 (Hot Shot). The first one is actually supposed to be good; the second one has Show Luo and Wu Chun. Hmm...

My Chinese is actually improving, I think, but go figure, I do hours of Chinese stuff every day, even if it's just watching dumb clips of 100% Entertainment on Youtube. I'm not sure I'll even be able to afford to take more Chinese courses at UHM next fall, but I do know my Chinese isn't nearly where it's gotta be. 加油, self, 加油.

Haha, ok that's what I thought.

The opinion on Prometheus seems to change -- at first the reviews I watched (I basically follow only a handful of trusted movie review vlogs nowadays) were positive, and also mentioned that the ratings they found on other sites were good. Then there was a very long and detailed rant by the third vlogger and his brother, who both hated the movie, and apparently the ratings on Rotten Tomatoes et al have dropped constantly. But I still doubt it will really come to a majority of moviegoers saying it's bad. I mean it has great special effects and shit. :/ Personally, I haven't made up my mind yet if watching it in theaters is a must. I feel like the things I am looking forward to, which are basically all visual (like the landscapes, the alien craft, and so on) need the big screen, but I suspect everything else would make me regret spending the money. Decisions, decisions.

Ditto with the Korra thing, good lord. This is of course the only possible satisfying conclusion at this point.

By the way, have you seen any TW dramas lately that you might recommend? I admit I tried to watch Hot Shot because of Wu Chun way back in high school - I might try again since I am less averse to camp (not to mention for listening practice!)
