Last night I tried to watch Penny Dreadful and had to turn it off after thirty minutes. Now, when the genre tag said "horror," I had hoped it just meant the subject matter of monsters, not gore. I was wrong. Also, a graphic sex scene within the first fifteen minutes. No thanks. Otherwise, it looks like it'd be a really interesting show. Sadly, it's not my cup of tea.

To "scrub" my mind of that debacle I watched Kung Fu Panda 3. Definitely not as good as the last two. I had trouble taking the villain seriously and he just didn't seem all that scary. Also, the pacing just seemed way too fast, especially in the beginning. There was no emotional reaction for me when Po met his bio dad, and the whole scene just didn't seem normal for the situation. There were several instances of this throughout the film.

I also watched Moana the other day. Slightly disappointed, but I still liked it. I don't know if maybe it was the voice acting, script, characters, or what that bothered me. As with Kung Fu Panda 3, the pacing felt kind of fast in some places. I guess kids these days have such short attention spans that writers can't afford to drag out any scene for more than two minutes. Oh well. I still thought it was way better than Frozen, and I mainly watched it to hear Te Vaka's music. But it's no Lion King. People keep waiting for the next Lion King and I just don't think Disney will hit it again any time soon. I looked at their list of upcoming films, and all I see are sequels, live-action adaptations, book adaptations, and other stuff that sounds uninteresting. Well, I'm not a kid anymore and I haven't been for a long time, so I guess maybe my tastes changed.

My roommate is set to move out this Tuesday. I'm so excited. I mean, I wish her safe travels and hope she finds happiness in life, but I sort of want to clean to bathroom.

I finally bought The Great Silence, after finding out the DVD had gone out of print and now suddenly it's expensive. I managed to get it for $25 on eBay. I was really excited.

The ending was horribly depressing and not what I expected at all. It's another "everyone dies in the end" trope. AWFUL. I don't know if I'll ever watch it again! I hate movies like that!

I need fix-it fic. ;_; Or at least another western where the hero wins in the end.
