    mood: 👀👻

    spotify saved?: no

    favourite track: beat it

    notes: this was a really tight, concise pop album. I could see how it’s considered a classic as it has so many great singles and hits. However, I’m not really the biggest michael jackson fan and I felt quite indifferent about it? I don’t know, I was very familiar with the singles and I didn’t really latch onto the other tracks, although they were quite good! just not my scene I don’t think hehe

  • So today, I did some writing and watched horror films.  

    image

    A powerful hurricane smashes into the Florida coast and a young woman goes to check on her estrange father.  Unfortunately, the hurricane has flooded the swamps and the alligators have decided to make the neighborhood their new home.  It’s survival horror as daughter and father fight to survive and get help.

    I like this horror film because it has a female lead that isn’t serialized or forced into having a love interest.  It focuses on a wholesome relationship between a parent and child and other than one small scene, the characters act with intelligence and common sense.

    image

    A childhood prank that ends in death, sends an innocent boy to prison and four years later, he’s out and the kids responsible have a stalker on their hands.  

    This wasn’t my favorite of the films I saw.  The acting was okay, but the writing wasn’t that great.  I’m not really a fan of teenager slasher films because they keep recycling the same old tropes.  Leading girl wants a better life for herself, but that’s about it.  She doesn’t come across as particularly interesting and the ring of friends (pranksters) are too large to keep track of.  There was so much teen drama and romance that whenever the stalker makes an appearance, I am reminded that this is a slasher film.  There was very little if any character development to be seen in this film.   

    image

    Another film I liked would be Sweetheart.  A shipwrecked young woman washes up on the sore of an isolated island.  At first, it comes across as a survival film, but things get dangerous when a monster rears it ugly head.  

    The female lead isn’t serialized and is quite smart and resourceful.  She manages to forage for food and stay a step ahead of the monster. Not much is known about her life before the island, but we’re given hints of it when other characters appear.

    This is my favorite film I saw today.  

    This film explores the question of what would happen if a small child wakes up one morning to find herself alone to fend for herself.  This is a unique film as the movie follows a two year old girl who wakes up next to her deceased mother while her father is out of own on business.

    It’s a hard watch.  Not because of gore, violence, or extreme triggers, but because of the tension and heartbreak.  Heartbreak because Pihu, the titled character, doesn’t understand why Mommy won’t wake up and tries multiple times throughout the film to get her mother to respond.  From pulling on her feet, headbutting her head, to smearing cream and food in her face, nothing moves or cajoles her dead mother to answer her pleas and cries.  I teared up when Pihu burns her fingers on a iron that’s been left on and runs to her mother for comfort only to lay weeping on the body that can’t hug or hold her.

    And the tension made me hold my breath.  What sets this horror/thriller apart from others is the danger itself.  Usually, it comes in the form of monsters, aliens, killers, wild animals, and all sorts of boogies to haunt and scare us.  In Pihu, the danger comes from everyday items and she doesn’t know she’s in danger because she’s only a two year old girl.  

    She plays around a hot iron that’s sitting on a rickety ironing board, struggles to open a fridge where glass bottles on top that rattle threatening at the edge above her head, and she tries to use a stove to heat food.  Other films, the characters know or quickly learn they are in danger and can take actions to protect themselves or fight back.  Pihu doesn’t have that luxury because she’s practically still a baby.

    The only adult we see on camera is the dead mother.  All other adults are either heard through the phone, seen on television, or only their voices are heard outside the door of Pihu’s apartment home, all of them are ignorant of Pihu’s predicament. 

    Of all the films to watch on Netflix, this is the one I would strongly recommend.  It’s unique take on the thriller genre and would definitely watch it again.

    Outlast

    Outlast is a first-person horror survival game with one small difference from other games in the genre: you can’t fight the horror. In the game, you play as Miles Upshur, a journalist who seeks to uncover the mysteries of Mount Massive Asylum. Equipped with nothing but a video camera, the game prioritizes stealth and alertness as the character’s means of survival, with the need to collect batteries along the way to power up the camera’s night vision function, necessary for traversing through dark hallways and deep sewers.

    Content warning: The game features graphic depictions of gore and violence. Not for the weak of heart. But people looking for an absolute thrill ride should really give this game a try.

  • Hi! So we’re already a few days into July, but I wanted to go through and talk about what I’m going to be reading/what I want to read (I have no sense of how much I can read in a month).

    image

    Since we we’re already a few days into July, I’ve finished one book, Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, and started two books, The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters and Partners in Crime by Agatha Christie. When it comes to some other books that I’m going to be reading here they are:

    • The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins: I’ve been trying to get into thriller novels, since I already really enjoy mystery books and there’s lots of overlap in the genres, and I know this one was fairly popular, so I decided to give it a try. I read Paula Hawkin’s other novel (Into the Water) and wasn’t a huge fan, but I’m hoping I’ll enjoy this one more.
    • The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith: *an edit on this one* So I didn’t realize that JKR had written this book (I forgot she also wrote under a pseudonym and also I don’t want to engage with her works anymore), so this one is coming off my tbr for this month and wanted to make note of that.
    • 2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson: I don’t really have an overarching reasoning for reading this one, but I wanted some sci-fi to read and it was available at the library.
    • We Are Okay by Nina LaCour: a contemporary book about grief with a really striking cover.
    • Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie: I’ve been enjoying Agatha Christie recently, so I wanted I wanted to add one of her books to this month’s tbr.
    • The City We Became by NK Jemisin: An urban fantasy book that takes place in NYC that I’ve heard some good things about.
    • Honor Girl by Maggie Thrash: A graphic novel about finding out and struggling with your sexuality.

    Other books I want to read: These are a few books that I’d like to read this moth, but I’m not sure if I’d be able to for one reason or another.

    • With the Fire On High by Elizabeth Avecedo: I’ve been trying to read more contemporary, especially contemporary books featuring more diverse characters (for a while I wasn’t very into contemporary, but I realized that that was because much of the contemporary I had been exposed to were romances featuring straight white middle class characters, which really didn’t interest me) and I thought this would be a good book to pick up. Though, unfortunately, my local library only has one copy, which is currently checked out, so I’ll probably have to wait until next month to read this.
    • A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor by Hank Green: this is the sequel to An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, which I really enjoyed. It’s coming out July 7 and I’ll probably try to pick it up from the library, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get it by the end of the month.
    • How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X Kendi: I saw this book recommended on a lot of Black Lives Matter booklists. I was hoping to read this last month, but I’m pretty far back on the library holds list, so I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get this book.

  • The technical execution is superb, building incredibly powerful paranoid tension with music, cinematography, and acting. But the setup and plot are bafflingly empty: the POV character never actually does anything, and as far as I can tell, nothing ever actually comes at night.

  • Just about grazed the surface of the horrors that came with demonetization. The performances were great but can’t say the same about the film. Still, better engaging than Anurag’s own ‘Manmarziyan’.
    What it could be beats what it is.
