The look on Lao Lao’s face was an image Kallan hasn’t seen in a long time. She remembers Lao Lao looking this way when a being asks about the future. Lao Lao’s face becomes devoid of all emotion. And the being that is in front of Kallan is no longer her Lao Lao. Instead, it is an entity that has existed before time and will continue to exist after everything is gone. To say Kallan wasn’t tempted was a lie. She wanted to know or at least know enough to know for sure if the explosion had been an accident or something more sinister. She swallows.
Beauty and the Beast – Not Quite the Original
Beauty and the Beast (2017), stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as Beast/Prince Adam. It is the newest live-action movie by Disney.
Belle is also the third princess made into a live-action and the words “third time’s the charm” definitely rang true.
Beauty and the Beast hits a unique spot for both being modern and nostalgic fans who grew up with the 1991 version.
Kallan straightens her back and hears her spine crack and pop. Her muscles are both numb and achy for sitting in one position for so long. But at least she’s at home. Her desk is covered in files and her laptop looks as tired as she does. She finishes the last bit of her high-caffeine tea and gets up to walk to the kitchen to fix another cup.
Your Name is a Japanese anime movie that was released in 2016. The story revolves around two high schoolers Mitsuha Miyamizu (Mono Kamishiraishi) and Taki Tachibana (Ryunosuku Kamiki).
Mitsuha lives in the rural town near the mountains and is a Miko (shrine maiden) of the family shrine.
Taki lives in Tokyo and works part time as a waiter in an Italian restaurant. Their lives are drastically different from each other’s, including their temperaments
Then, for some mysterious reason, they begin to switch bodies. At first, each believes they were having an extremely realistic dream. Until their respective friends and families comment on how strange they were acting. Then, after finding notes they both leave for the other, they both realize they have a problem on their hands.
The house sits on top of a cliff. It is a creation of wood and glass, made to view the sea. Stairs and a deck are carved into the cliff side. They lead to a modest beach that surrounds one side of the cliff. It then stretches on for a bit before being surrounded by the same cliff.
Train to Busan is a South Korean zombie movie. The bulk of the movie takes place on the high-speed train, the KTX, as it leaves from Seoul to Busan.
The zombies in the movie are reminiscent of the ones in the cinematic version of World War Z or 28 Days. They are a strong and swift horde that engulfs anyone in their path, spreading the sickness within seconds of being bitten. In the realm of zombies, Train to Busan doesn’t offer anything new. As an audience, we have seen these types of zombies before. But the other aspects, like the pacing and characters that make it a blockbuster.
The pacing of the movie is well done. The outbreak doesn’t happen suddenly, rather it builds into the catastrophe.
