I’m hear to talk about the drama Sisyphus: The Myth. (***This post may contain SPOILERS***)
First thing, I absolutely loved this drama. From the characters, relationships, story, I really loved it all.
Sisyphus: The Myth is about a war that breaks out leaving it completely destroyed. We follow our main character Seo Hae as she travels from 2035 back to 2020 to prevent the war. We follow the timeline of both the post war as well as present time.
The characters and the relationships were really great in my opinion. I found myself loving not only the main characters but most of the side characters as well, both good and bad. I loved how the villains were portrayed in this story, especially Sigma.
Seo Hae, played by Park Shin Hye, really surprised me with this character. And I think she portrayed her so well. She was such a badass character, and I absolutely loved seeing it! I loved seeing her time in both the present and the future and it was SO NICE to see a woman as the protector this time! The relationships that she built with people was fun to watch, but the relationship between her and her father was absolutely amazing. I loved seeing how that father-daughter relationship was portrayed in both the past, present, and future.
Tae Sul, played by Cho Seung Woo, was such a fun character to see played out on screen. I think Cho Seung Woo was a great choice for this character. He plays a brilliant CEO engineer who also happens to be struggling with the loss of his brother. He hallucinates his brother quite often, so we see him taking pills to stop it.
Kim Byung Chul who plays Sigma was absolutely amazing. I thought he was such a great villain, and every time he appeared I was wondering what he was going to do next. What he had planned. And the dynamic between him and Tae Sul was absolutely entertaining to watch. And adding Seo Hae in the mix made it better.
The crew of Asia Mart was also a lot of fun to watch. They become important parts to the story and with our main characters.
I was a big fan of the relationship between Tae Sul and Seo Hae. Personally I loved seeing them together and this relationship develop. And I absolutely loved seeing Seo Hae as the protector in this story.
This entire drama is very action filled, but we also get quite a bit of emotional moments between a lot of the characters. I was rooting for our leads to save the world and stop the war. I wanted to see it happen even though about halfway through I finally realized what the title meant.
I think why I loved this drama so much is because I didn’t take it that seriously. This deals with time travel, and obviously time travel is a very difficult plot to do well. So with movies and/or shows that do it I don’t take them all that seriously and am pretty lenient with how it’s portrayed. You have to be open to it, so because I was more open to what they were doing with this plot, I think I was able to enjoy it so much more.
I won’t talk about the ending here because I have an entire post dedicated to my thoughts on the ending of this drama. People have a lot of theories, and I share mine. If you would like to read that I’ll link it here—> Sisyphus: The Myth ENDING
Overall I really loved this drama. I know it has a lot of mix thoughts, and I would love to hear yours.
Jessi’s new song What Type of X is out and I’m obsessed! I became a fan of Jessi last year and have been loving her songs. I thought it would be hard to top NUNU NANA, but I think she did it! CHECK THE VIDEO OUT and get ready to become obsessed!
I’m taking a short, but necessary break from reading. I kind of burnt myself out in February. So I decided to watch a couple of shows.
I don’t watch many C-Dramas, but I’ve heard such good things about this particular drama so I decided to FINALLY check it out. When I’m writing this(I’m not sure if I will post this today or days from now), I’m currently about 30 episodes into this drama and I’m loving it so much! I can’t believe it it has taken me this long to watch this! This drama is my priority for the upcoming days!
The Walking Dead
This is one of my favorite shows and it came back last week so I have to watch the most recent episode. I’m excited to see the characters again, and see what happens.
Superman & Lois
This is one that I haven’t started yet, but it premiered at the end of February and I’m excited to start watching this show. I don’t watch many superhero shows anymore. I use to watch them all, but kind of fell off of it. But I’m excited to check out this show!
Charlie, a highly-strung, openly gay over-thinker, and Nick, a cheerful, soft-hearted rugby player, meet at a British all-boys grammar school. Friendship blooms quickly, but could there be something more…?
Oh my God this book! What can I say? I can honestly say I had a smile on my face the entire time I was reading this book. It’s the most heartwarming, sweetest book.
Hearstopper deals with friendship, romance, acceptance, coming out, and more. This story follows the relationship between Nick and Charlie.(I’ve heard these characters are mentioned in other books by Alice Oseman, but this was my first read of hers.) We follow the meeting, friendship, and growing feelings between the two of them.
You will end up flying through this story. Not just because it is a comic/graphic novel, but because you will be so invested in this story and these characters.
Also how can I not mention NELLIE! Oh my God, NELLIE!(Nicks dog) She’s the absolute best! We love her!
I also want to add that Alice Osemans book deal with serious issues, and I found a list of the trigger warnings on her website. So I would like to list them here for any of you who are intesrested in checking this story out. These are taken from her website! https://www.aliceoseman.com/content-warnings
Heartstopper VOL 1 Trigger Warnings:
- Emotionally abusive relationship
- Non- consensual kiss
- past homophobia/slurs
- past bullying
Damon and Stefan’s Goodbye
Damon and Stefan have always been my favorite non-romantic relationship on the show! And I always loved seeing moments together like this! This scene was so emotional and heartbreaking, especially when they were trying to explain to one another why it needed to be them to sacrifice themselves.
Bonnie and Bennett Witches Save Mystic Falls
Bonnie freakin Bennett has always been one of the best and the most SELFLESS characters on the show. She was always willing to sacrifice herself and her happiness time and time again for the ones she loves. To see her be the one to save Mystic Falls doesn’t surprise me one bit. However the scene with her, Grams, and generations of Bennett witches was just badass, and I absolutely loved it! However I’m still pissed about them not bringing Enzo back, so they can both have there happy ending! Bonnie and Enzo are two characters who deserved that!
Stefan and Elena/Stefan and Lexi
This scene! We NEEDED this! Stefan and Elena was where it all started and to see them FINALLY have a moment like this. We really needed it. Even though these two are not in love with each other anymore, they will always love one another. This scene was sweet, emotional, and just absolutely necessary. Plus the song Never Say Never played as they ended the goodbye! PERFECTION! And then we can’t forgot when he does leave, he walks out to see Lexi, finding peace with her! That scene was EPIC!
Damon and Elena
What we’ve been waiting for: the Delena reunion! It wasn’t this big, over the top reunion. They simply see each other, run into each other arms, kiss and hug. I know a lot of people were disappointed with this, but to be honest, I really quite enjoyed it. If you think about it, it was very bittersweet. I mean yes, they have each other back, but Damon just lost his brother and was saying goodbye to him, plus he’s now human. I mean come on, he has to be feeling so many different emotions at that moment. And Elena just woke up, and she lost someone really important to her. With all that going on, I think the reunion was done well and fit with the tone of the story in that moment. Of course I know quite a few people might disagree(that’s okay!).
The ending, at least in my opinionn, was perfect. I loved how we got to see what everyone was doing, or going to do in the future. How they had loved ones that died looking out for them, and eventually finding peace with them! Elena and Damon living a long and happy life, and when they do pass on: Elena finds peace with her parents, Aunt Jenna, and John, while Damon finds peace with Stefan, finally getting to see him again. I absolutely freakin loved that the final scene was of Stefan and Damon, and the final line was:
So I finally watched the Everything, Everything trailer and I thought I would share my thoughts. First, I think it’s important to mention that I HAVE NOT read the book. So these thoughts are just from the trailer alone.
I absolutely adore this trailer. It seems like it’s going to be such a cute, yet emotional movie! From what I’ve heard, it gives away a lot from the book? As I said, I haven’t read the book, so I can’t really say. I can definitely say that after watching this trailer, I really want to read the book. So here’s hoping my library has it in!
I thought the music in this trailer was great, and fit really well! But what I think is the most important thing are the actors. The casting for this movie seems fantastic. Just from this trailer you can tell that the two leads have such amazing chemistry together. I really can’t wait to see this movie. Until then, I definitely plan on picking up the book.
What are your thoughts? I’d really love to hear from those who have read the book? Does it seem like it’ll be a good adaptation?
Title- Never Fade
Author- Alexandra Bracken
Rating- 4 out of 5
I want to start off by saying that I really enjoyed everything about this book: the characters, the writing, the pacing and plot. Everything was great. Except for one thing that wasn’t. One thing that made me go from giving this book a 5 stars to a 4 stars…Ruby. I’ll start off with this positives first, and then talk about my one negative. WARNING! SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THE DARKEST MINDS AND NEVER FADE!
Plot- The story started off a bit slow, and I wasn’t really sure how I was feeling about it. But I kept going, and it really started to pick up. Next thing I new it was 3:30am and I’m still up reading. I was doing that whole “just one more chapter” thing us readers do. When Ruby finally ended up going on a mission for the League to find Liam and the flashdrive, that’s when it started to pick up and damn it got good! They’re were so many surprises that you don’t expect and it just keeps you wanting more.
Characters- The characters, I think are the best thing about this books! They’re fun, strong, bad-ass, and real. I was surprised to find myself really loving the new characters: Jude, Nico, and Vida…especially Vida. But what I really loved more than that, was seeing Ruby reunite with old characters. CHUBS! LIAM! Even though both reunions were completely different and surprising, it was amazing to see!
Liam and Ruby- One thing I really loved about The Darkest Minds, was the relationship between Liam and Ruby, and the way it ended in the first book was heartbreaking! I was so glad to see them finally reunite in this one, although I knew it wasn’t going to be the same. I was surprised to find out that even though Ruby erased herself from Liam’s memories, his feelings were still there. So when he saw her, he just knew.
Now lets talk about the one thing I didn’t like about this book:
Ruby- I just want to point out that yes, Ruby did have moments in this book where I did like her, but for most of the book she got on my damn nerves. Most of the time, that happened was when she was alone, or with the leaders of the children‘s league. She just seemed like a completely different person, at least until she got her friends back: Chubs and Liam. With them by her side again, she seemed like the same old Ruby, whom I did like. Without them, she was mean, rude, and just cold. I also didn’t like how she trusted Cole. I get that he looks like Liam, but he’s not Liam. You don’t know him, so why trust him? Why keep a secret from Liam, because Cole asked you to? You already messed with his memories, now you’re going to keep a secret from him about his brother? You should be trying to earn his trust back, not keeping secrets. It frustrated me.
It has been awhile since I’ve posted anything on here. I’m sorry about that. I’ve kind of been in a weird mood these last few months, and haven’t felt like reading anything. This surely hasn’t been the first time this has happened, and it won’t be the last. However, I’ve been feeling like getting out of this mood, and I need some recommendations to help me. So let me know what you have been reading and loving lately!
So what have I been doing recently? Well at the end of August I started watching Battlestar Galactica(2003 version), and in September I finished it. I was hesitant to start this show because I honestly didn’t think I would like it. I’m so glad to say that I was completely wrong. I absolutely LOVED this show. It was everything you could want in a television show and more! I’m thinking about doing a Why I Love: Battelstar Galactica post so I can share all my love for it there.
