Behold...Nerd Power!



Heh.

Guess who managed to download Arya 2 with subs? Even though I haven't had time to watch any more of Arya proper. (A2 is not a sequel but an AU. I could get behind infinite variations of a story about a girl who realizes almost too late that she should be not with her loser jerk fiance but this hot and selfless guy who has been protecting her all along). I mean, we have Allu Arjun pining and angsting and beating up people and showing off muscles, and this time IN GLASSES!

Who could resist?



I have found this blog to dl Telugu (and Tamil and Bolly) movies from. I am already dling Magadheera from there.

I am going to get so obsessed so very fast.

Tomorrow night, when I finally have time, continuing Arya, here I come!

I need some icons!

(Yes, I realize that technically Tollywood = Tamil movies and Kollywood = Telugu ones, but I haven't gotten around to changing the tag).

I have watched the first 10 minutes of ep 5 of Prosecutor Princess (the only part which was completely subbed - there is no way I am watching a drama which relies so much on its zingy dialogues raw).

Oh, how I loved that airport scene with Hyeri and In Woo. If their flirty, bickering chemistry is wonderful, the angry chemistry just pulses from the screen. It was such a great scene! And if I didn't know In Woo was up to something shady before, I would now. Because he clearly is desperate for her to stay and remain in her prosecutor job and it's just as clearly not because "OMG I WUV YOU!" reasons - I mean, why would he care if she stayed as a prosecutor or not if his only goal was courtship? He is so desperate for her to stay he is throwing everything he can think of at her, including "OMG, this will be hurting the little girl whose case you are working on right now" and (here my jaw dropped since he supposedly is courting Hyeri himself) "Don't you want the man you love, Prosecutor Yoon, think well of you? If you leave, he will have to clean up the mess!" And the thing is, everything he says to her in the airport is true and correct. But even though what he says is in the right 100%, he himself isn't because he is doing this for some (mysterious) ulterior motive - he would say ANYTHING to have her stay - and it's not really about the victim, or her prosecutor crush or her independence. And I love that she is just as angry as he is (because she is correct - what business is any of this of his) and he finally loses his temper so badly he storms out (which - yessss! Score for unplanned reaction!) and she does board her plane. I loved that she got off not because In Woo was so sexy or she wanted to see Prosecutor Yoon again whatever but because she was sitting on the plane thinking of the victim and wanting to help her and she came to this decision by herself.

And I love that In Woo may sound all confident to Jenny that Hyeri will get off the plane but he clearly is trying to convince himself and is as nervous as hell. But yes, the scene with IW and Jenny convinces me even further of the weirdness. Not only does he have a guy hired to keep track of Hyeri's movements (which would explain how he knew she was leaving in the first place), but Jenny says that if Hyeri leaves that would make their plan more dangerous. What plan? I mean, why is Hyeri becoming a decent prosecutor and being around is so important to him? Unless he's crazy and wants her to later prosecute her father for multiple devastation for the guy or something (I am totally pulling this out of thin air) but I fail to see how that would work. Even the world's best prosecutor would simply transfer that case to a colleague.

Anyways, I love this drama.

dangermousie: (HYD: Rui book)
1. I checked out the first episode of the British show Being Human (about a vampire, werewolf and a ghost being rommates - sounds like a start of a very bad joke) and I really really loved it. Shall watch more.

2. I am obsessed by one of the books I am currently reading - North of the DMZ by Andrei Lankov. It's the best nonficition book I've read in months. Lankov writes about every day life in North Korea - if you want to read about nukes and politics this is not the book for you, but he goes into everything from market operation to wedding customs to texbooks. (Sample math problem involves having the children count how many "wolf-like imperialist bastards" did the "brave uncles" of the North Korean army managed to kill).

This book is impeccably researched and written but what really appeals to me is that Lankov is a former USSR citizen (currently working in Seoul) who studied at the Kim Il Sung university as an exchange student in the 1980s - he brings a perspective I haven't seen in books about NK before - as someone from a communist country he is able to see the distorted twisted taken-to-extreme parallels with other communist regimes and lacks the sense of shock that I see in so many Western accounts. Maybe I love it because his attitude is closest to mine (I grew up in the USSR too and my best friend's father worked in North Korea - she lived there for a time. I remember Soviet people thought N.Koreans were insane too). Plus, his information on relationship between USSR, China and NK is fascinating. I was especially interested in defectors from NK to Soviet Union in the 1950s - NK allowed a bunch of NK students to study in Moskow and Moskow was paradise compared to NK. A large number defected, Khruschev took them in, and NK clamped down on studying abroad. (I particularly liked the story of a Korean War hero who led the defectors and whom the NK forces tried to kidnap back in Moskow but he escaped, became a journalist and wrote accounts of NK defectors in the 1970s - I want to get my hands on that book).

I cannot recommend this highly enough.

3. Watched the second ep of this season's Doctor Who. I am OK with Eleven and Amy - I am not invested in them but at least they don't bore me. The ep had plotholes the size of Titanic though (really, all the other countries had tech to leave earth but not England? And none of them would share? As this was what was implied as they were the only ones floating on a whale. Bleh). Also, it got so OTT sentimental, I was ready to claw the screen. Still, at least it kept me mildly amused.

4. Ep 8 of Oh My Lady was cute - favorite part being MW buying Ye Eun all those toys and ruffling her hair or watching the tape of her performance and getting all melty and then seeing a little boy pull her hair and getting indignant. And of course his offer at the end to finance the musical so Gae Hwa will have a job. OML isn't a masterpiece or anything but it is enjoyable.

5. They cast Lee Ji Ah as the secondary female lead in Athena. I was so happy for the male cast but their female casting decisions are wrecking this. Don't misunderstand me - I am a rabd Le Ji Ah fan - I've only seen her in Legend but Sujink, the character she played, was arguably my favorite female character ever. That's the problem. They case boring as dirt Soo Ae as the female lead (whom I don't care for at the best of times) and my darling Sujini as the secondary? WTF? If they expect me to root for Soo Ae over LJA, they are insane.

Everyone, I apologize for the delay. Miss Short Attention Span got sidetracked. In rl, I am on ep 21 now but need to upload ep 19-21 caps so have the summary for eps 17-18 here.

When we finished with ep 16, Jung Woo has hit rock-bottom of angst. Let's see if he digs himself out.



Clearly, not so much!

See a shrink, Jung Woo! )

[Poll #1551705]

If you picked E, congratulations - you are thinking like Arya's secondary guy. Somewhere there is a kdrama weeping for him.

And I still have an hour-and-a-half to go! Apparently the hero (who must have the masochism complex the size of Nevada) is going to spend a good chunk of it trying to help heroine to marriage of her dreams with this creep. I understand martyrdom is appealing, but maybe you should mention in passing that her intended is a manipulative homicidal maniac? She might appreciate knowing that little fact.

In other Indian movie-related news, you know what is better than a fun chicklit book? A fun chicklit book set in Bollywood! Today, I found such a paragon on amazon by typing Bollywood into a Kindle search and checking out every book that popped up, obsessively at random.

It's Bollywood Confidential by Sonia Singh. Our heroine, Raveena, is Indian by descent but she has never really been to India, having been born in the US. Raveena has been trying to achieve success in Hollywood for a while but though she occasionally scores small roles, as you can imagine roles for actresses of her ethnicity aren't exactly thick on the ground. So when an offer comes from a Bollywood producer (who had seen her in a sexy Japanese commercial), an offer of a starring role no less, Raveena packs her bags and flies to Mumbai. Everything is not as she has expected - take a case of some culture shock, add in her worries over her success in a medium she is unfamiliar with, and the unwelcome feelings she is beginning to develop for her costar, the cool and uninterested superstar Siddharth (I am trying very hard not to picture Telugu star Siddharth in the role as I am one of 5 women who does not get his appeal - too boyish), and you got one delicious bit of fluff.

MMMMM.

I have just finished Arya. So good! I giggled, I cried, I swooned!

I think my crush on Allu Arjun is getting out of all proportion (first I saw him as a sexy vigilante macking on a nun in Desamuduru and now this).

I think this was my favorite scene! It was almost kdrama levels of angst!











Let's sum up. Heroine's boyfriend had hideous mustache, blackmailed her into saying "I love you", was a self-absorbed, manipulative creep. And oh yeah, left her to be gangraped and killed because he didn't fancy fighting for her. In other words, dreamboat.



OTOH our hero was a stunningly attractive guy with a fun sense of humor who she was at ease with and had fun with, who worshipped the ground she walked on, would get her anything she wanted (even if that included another man), nursed her through being sick and abandoned by boyfriend, and oh yeah, rescued her from murdering and gangraping thugs. (Is it wrong to find him snapping Chief Thug's neck hot? Because it was hot.)

It was NOT a shocker the heroine realized she preferred the hero especially since she spent an idyllic week with him in an isolated rural spot being healed and nursed and petted and spoiled, while knowing he was lying to her about her bf coming back and that her bf actually abandoned her.

I also loved that unlike in many a Bollywood movie, there wasn't the idiotic issue of "we love each other and the interloper is a loser extraordinaire but I have to marry him because there is elders' blessings/he has to let me go." Nah, the girl just said "I want Arya" during the ceremony and ran out. SQUEE.




Also, Allu Arjun is an AMAZING dancer. The train song made my eyes pop out of my head.

This also inspired me to make a few Desamuduru icons :)




I bet that is the most action a nun ever got! But then that was the movie where bad guy married heroine over corpses of her parents so they weren't exactly going for understated there.

OTOH our hero was a stunningly attractive guy with a fun sense of humor who she was at ease with and had fun with, who worshipped the ground she walked on, would get her anything she wanted (even if that included another man), nursed her through being sick and abandoned by boyfriend, and oh yeah, rescued her from murdering and gangraping thugs. (Is it wrong to find him snapping Chief Thug's neck hot? Because it was hot.)

It was NOT a shocker the heroine realized she preferred the hero especially since she spent an idyllic week with him in an isolated rural spot being healed and nursed and petted and spoiled, while knowing he was lying to her about her bf coming back and that her bf actually abandoned her.

I also loved that unlike in many a Bollywood movie, there wasn't the idiotic issue of "we love each other and the interloper is a loser extraordinaire but I have to marry him because there is elders' blessings/he has to let me go." Nah, the girl just said "I want Arya" during the ceremony and ran out. SQUEE.




Also, Allu Arjun is an AMAZING dancer. The train song made my eyes pop out of my head.

This also inspired me to make a few Desamuduru icons :)




I bet that is the most action a nun ever got! But then that was the movie where bad guy married heroine over corpses of her parents so they weren't exactly going for understated there.

I have just finished Arya. So good! I giggled, I cried, I swooned!

I think my crush on Allu Arjun is getting out of all proportion (first I saw him as a sexy vigilante macking on a nun in Desamuduru and now this).
