Turn it on


Last night, I watched "BLACK SWAN' Personally, I was expecting way too much. So much hype has been made about the film, her performance....
OK, I watched the whole thing. It was rather tense and dark but did I think it was 'Amazing'? No.
This film is not a feel good film, I much prefer movies with happy endings. This does not deliver a happy ending. Fair enough. No doubt, her performance was amazing, so amazing that it outshone the actual film. If that is possible?
Overall, It is a good film, just not as amazing as I was expecting........

Have you seen it yet? what's your thoughts?




On to something totally random, is anyone else watching dream high? I first came across this when I was in Korea, It was on every afternoon whilst I was getting ready, although I didn't understand a word, I kind of got the jist of what was happening. Since returning to the UK, I have been watching it from the start (with subtitles! Hallelujah!) The drama itself is pretty inspiring.........

  1. Yeah I watched it recently and I think I was expecting too much too from all the hype. I agree, her performance was outstanding but the movie overall was just...disturbing and weird.

  3. I thought it was absolutely flawless and really mind gripping. yeahh a happy ending would have been really awesome but it really made me think about things in a weird way i was moved. i agree Natalie outshone the movie she was immense x

  5. I thought that the movie was genius!

    Kinda seems like everybody missed the underling story, like the sexual abuse from her mother and her fighting against it etc etc
    It's a very symbolical movie, so the things that they actually don't tell are the most interesting!

  9. I completely agree.... the movie is a bit overhyped - so perhap my expectations were high. It was a good movie though, just not the best I have ever seen :)

  10. I thought Black Swan was incredible. The kind of movie you definitely do not regret paying $10 to watch at the theaters! The movie is really deep and when you think back, there's a lot of ways you could have interpreted the storyline. It's like a story within another (if you have seen Swan Lake or know the storyline, you'll understand). It's a great change from the typical American movie. As for Dream High, I love it! The acting is really lacking since they are all idols (I love Eunjung though!)... But I had to stop watching because of my exams...

  11. Hi Suzi,
    Newbie here. If you liked Dream High, I thought you should know about Secret Garden. The series wrapped up but you can still find the episodes online fully subbed in English. It's really good and you'll love the fashion just as much. It's also a Korean drama. Trust me...you gotta watch it. I'm not Korean and actually live in New York and I got sucked into it big time. Love your blog!!!

  15. I may have expected too much from Black Swan as well.
    It wasn't really good for me until the last 30 minutes.
    I got a tad bored during the first hours actually ><
    But overall I think it's a good film!

  17. I actually liked Black Swan's ending; a beautifully sad ending. Beautiful because she got what she wanted in the end. Black Swan is definitely one of the better psycho-thrillers I have seen. It's brilliant, but horrifying at the same time. I agree that Natalie Portman basically took over the show.

  19. personally, as a movie enthusiast, is was pretty much like a breath of fresh air. the book was great, and the movie adaption was just as good. i think the reason why you didn't like it was of your personal aesthetic. of course we would all like a happy ending for everything, but that's really not how life works. i thought natalie did an amazing job portraying that character, mila kunis as well.

    that's my two cents.

  20. I loved that fimn! It shows the inner battle of ourselves and how it's our fault many times of blaiming others! Many times it's our fault! Nobody's elses!

  23. I agree about Black Swan being overhyped. But I thought overall it was good. I liked the story even though it didn't have a happy ending. True life doesn't always have a happy ending.
