Ahhhh, drama, how ridiculously do you spoil me? Now that it's more than halfway over, it's pretty clear Sungkyunkwan Scandal is by far my favorite drama this year except for Chuno. And ep 12 was the best yet.

Why are you so perfect, drama?

Caps and thoughts. Pretty long )

Not related to anything above, but I think I will finally finish the Russian telenovela Bednaya Nastya. It's really long (close to 130 eps) and I spaced out somewhere on ep 80. But I feel in the mood. Ahhhhh, Vladimir/Anna, I used to be so obsessed with them.



This soundtrack vid even has occasionally OK English subs.

I have gone insane. I am staying past 3am, looking for shippy vids for a couple for which I haven't even seen the drama yet, Vladimir/Anna in Bednaya Nastya. OMG.

But they are gorgeous, and have chemistry, and grew up together and he was resentful because his dad liked her and not him, and she is a serf and he is a nobleman, so it can't be but he is mad for her and she isn't sure and OMG so much repression and passion and HOTNESS.

And if this wasn't enough, this clip killed me. This is the clip of our heroine going into hero's bedroom to prevent him from fighting duel with his best friend. Oddly, with Finnish subtitles. LOL, very self-sacrificial of her. Need to find hotties willing to fight duels for me and then sneak into their bedrooms :)



OMG, 'he is SO HOT' is the only coherent thought left to me.

In case you don't speak Finnish or Russian, the dialogue goes as follows:

My translations with commentaries :) )

Hell, I watch dramas from every other country, why not those in my native tongue?

I have a sudden craving for a cheesy 80s movie. Recommend me? I don't mind if I've seen it before. Just no fantasy please, because 80s fantasy gives me hives.

This week I saw two rather different movies based on the same idea: imagining a literary figure's life as if it was one of his/her works. The movies? Becoming Jane (Jane Austen) and Moliere (self-evident). BJ was a fun trifle which I didn't mind paying $10 for, even if it wasn't the most awesome movie ever. It had about as much in common with life of Austen as it did with JRR Tolkien but it was enjoyable. Anne Hathaway was gorgeous and James McAvoy incredibly charming as Tom Lefroy. It was a very luid movie and, even if not overly clever, did sweep me into the romance. You could feel the chemistry and the desperation.

Some Becoming Jane pics )

As to Moliere? Oh. OH. I loved it incredibly much. It was the movie BJ was trying to be: funny and clever and oh-so-brilliantly incorporating bits not just from the plays but the spirit of them itself. In comparison, BJ was a glorified Austen fanfic, and a florid one at that. Moliere was about so many things: exuberance, and facades (when to keep them and to lose them) and clever people doing stupid things, and stupid people doing clever things, and just...all the performances. And love and pragmatism and loss and laughter. So, so GOOD.

I adored it to bits because I love Moliere (I first came across him as a third-grader, when I watched a filmed theatrical performance of Tartuffe on TV. Shortly after I got my hands on our family's two volume Moliere edition and devoured them. I've rearead them fairly regularly since) but Mr. Mousie hasn't read him and still loved it.

Trailer and some pics )

And to end ona random note, here is a MV for Poor Nastya (Bednaya Nastya), a Russian telenovela. I stumbled on it by accident and am SO curious now. Period clothes and kissing and angst. YES. Plus, hey, I won't need subs for once :)



A couple more Poor Nastya vids )

Mmmm, the lead is a hottie. I wonder where I can find this.

ETA: OMG, I just looked up the plot. The heroine is a talented young actress who could climb the pinnacle of success (professionally or be a mistress of someone important). Except? She is a serf. (Gotta love 19th century Russia). To make it all better? Her OTP is a nobleman. Heeee. There are 17 other otps. Maybe not 17, but seems so. Oh MAN. I just bought it :)
