Four years ago, I had a very bad headache. Four years fast forward, I still have a bad headache. It’s close to election day and the news makes my brain dizzy. I am going to take a break from blogging. I guess I am suffering from writer’s block or it’s just awfully tired. I thought I was doing well by being consistent and I had fun doing it because I have become an expert at making myself laugh. Right now, I just want to focus on Resident Evil 2 Remake, do some housecleaning, and eat properly so I don’t completely disappear from this planet. I’ll come back with an analysis of Resident Evil 2 Remake because I am enjoying it so far. Surely as I have a lot to say.
It’s so funny that a few years ago I created a blog to connect with the world and here I am still existing because I need to connect with people. Social distancing is not new to me as I have been doing this for years now. Strangely I feel less lonely even though I am isolated from the rest of the world. I just want to focus on my games and take it easy. I will still be here to read people’s posts.
See you guys when I am done with Resident Evil 2 Remake. It might not make it back on Halloween, but you can always follow me on twitter @poetryhuntress. And if you are here for the first time, hi hello, we can be blogging friends, but bye for now!
I promise I am not ditching my readers for a game. It’s really for health reasons.
Don’t want my blog to die. Might have to do CPR to revive it so I am doing my best to be consistent! Today’s post is more of a rant. I learned that these days people rant more than they review products. The term review might be just too old school and uncool. Because English is not my first language, I just had to double check its meaning with Google dictionary (maybe not the greatest source).
According to Google dictionary a rant is to:
speak or shout at length in a wild, impassioned way.”she was still ranting on about the unfairness of it all”
Whereas, Merriam-Webster dictionary defines rant as:
1: to talk in a noisy, excited, or declamatory manner
2: to scold vehemently
When I first started my blog a few years ago, one of my devout readers didn’t know what my blog is all about because I just posted whatever that came to my mind–mainly about games and poems. She mentioned my blog as a ranting blog so I didn’t know whether it’s a compliment or an insult because the word sounds bad to me. Thinking back, my intention for my blog was created as way to distract myself from talking to myself. So technically, she was right. I was ranting, rambling incoherently about the things I consumed and in the process, I discovered many things about myself that I didn’t know. So ranting is not such a bad word after all!
I hope you enjoy this rant even though it went no where. Isn’t that the purpose of a rant? 😀 Well it’s almost Halloween. My furry stuffed animals and I say hello and bye bye for now.
Sometimes I just float where ever the wind takes me. I’m like a pollen just drifting in autumn’s air. Okay that is not scientifically correct where I am from, but it doesn’t matter. In my universe nothing makes sense.
I have been spending a lot of time streaming on Amazon Prime Video. That’s where I watch all my martial art films. I can’t get enough of them. They are that addictive and fun to watch. You spend enough time on the site, you’d eventually find some good horror films and that is what happened to me. In fact, I haven’t had nightmares for a long time until I watched the following films.
There are 10 short stories in this anthology. A few of them spooked me out that I started dreaming that my place is haunted. I woke up to the sound of a single note being played on the piano. I don’t own a piano. I guess the film was so scary I had bad dreams. Maybe you should skip this one. Nonetheless it kept my eyes wide open–just like the cover. It’s that suspenseful.
This one is not as scary as the first film mentioned, but visually appealing to the eyes. I am not going to lie, I like to stare at pretty girls, especially when they are well dressed because it’s like watching a fashion catalogue for clothes. It gives me inspiration to take care of myself. Dressing up can be fun sometimes. But the only problem with looking nice is that you attract all sorts of creeps, especially if you are walking in the dark. The whole time watching this film, I’m thinking not so bright girl. It might be wise to change into sweatpants and sneakers so you can outrun your predator. You never know!!! Overall, the film is more comically scary than bone chilling if that makes sense. Ideally, I think the film is intended for female audiences. I had a great laugh. I laughed so loud my neighbors probably thought I am crazy.
This film is mysterious enough to keep me on my toes, and the sentimental mother and daughter scenes made me well up with tears (let’s just say my relationship with my mom is strong), but the way how the story is being told is not so good. It felt too Hollywood for my liking. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of great Korean horror films, but this one just didn’t make the cut.
I listed 3 films rating from 1 to 3. The first film mentioned is the best on this list.
Okay, I hope you enjoy my small list of reccomendations and hopefully it makes your film selection easier as there are so many films out there to choose from. Until next time, bye bye.
