What’s Up 2019: Week 47

Tranquil Dreams (49)

Wow! Time is flying! Especially with festival coverage hanging in the air! Another week is done and we’re only 5 weeks away until the year ends. Its crazy to think about that!

This past week has been very heavy on WATCHING and trying to catch up on some gaming, although a lot of straying off path. Let’s check it out!

READING

love potions and other calamities

Currently reading: Love, Potions & Other Calamities

Zero progress in reading this past week! I did try to but it has been a lot of the other things taking over the usual reading time I would have.

PLAYING

Rusty Lake Hotel

  • Cube Escape: Paradox (Review)
  • Rusty Lake Hotel

Currently playing: Afterparty, Rusty Lake Roots

Gaming has been moving forward a little more. I really wanted to wrap up the Cube Escape: Paradox completely before continuing anything else. And I got that done and even managed to take a breather from writing to start and finish Rusty Lake Hotel. It was a playthrough but still so much fun to play. Its a lot more grounded in the puzzles than Cube Escape: Paradox and that is why I prefer it over to Cube Escape: Paradox. With that said, the Rusty Lake world is a fun place to dive into with all its twists and oddities.

WATCHING

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

  • Paradox: A Rusty Lake Film (short, 2018)
  • Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (2000)

Not a whole lot of normal viewing as expected. Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon is a continuation for recording for Movies and Tea. We still have a few episodes until we get there so I’m not going to say much about it but I definitely appreciate it a lot more this time than the last time I saw it back in the theatres in 2000 when I was much younger.

Blood in the Snow Festival

Majic

  • Funny Frights (Shorts Program, Review)
  • She Never Died (2019, Review)
  • Dead Dicks (2019, Review)
  • Sky So Blue (short 2019, Review)
  • One in Two Place (short 2019, Review)
  • Songs My Mother Taught Me (short 2019, Review)
  • Break In Break Out (short 2019, Review)
  • The Nights Before Christmas (2019)
  • Emerging Screams (Shorts Program, Review)
  • Majic (2019, Review)
  • Hunter’s Moon (2019)
  • Giltrude’s Dwelling (short 2019, Review)
  • EXT (short 2019, Review)
  • The Remnant (short 2019, Review)

Blood in the Snow Festival started a bit iffy for myself but its been a very strong last few movies so far. I wrapped up the week watching two very solid films: Majic and Hunter’s Moon. Both are unique in their own regards. The first with a great script and you can read the review now, so I won’t go too much into it. The second is a unique premise and how it was executed and also had a nice level of fun. I’m a bit behind on the reviews for the Festival but it’ll be done very soon.

BINGING

我们恋爱吧

  • Relation Ship (Season 1, 2019)

Currently binging: When I Grow Up, Viva La Romance (Season 2), Lipstick Prince (Season 2), Chase Me, Nailed It! Holiday (Season 2), Who’s the Murderer (Season 5)

I’ve started a lot of things that are ongoing or just finished but as the festival is taking up a lot of time, I just haven’t had as much time to catch up. Relation Ship actually wrapped up its first season of the reality show. While I have a few critics on the structure of it all and the feasibility, they did manage to give it a pretty fun time while feeling rather genuine. I’m ready to put together a huge post on this type of shows for fun. Its been in the planning for a while but decided for this to finish before discussing it.

That’s it for what’s up with me!

    • Thanks for stopping by! Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon will only be as a podcast discussion on Movies and Tea (moviesandteapodcast.wordpress.com). Its an upcoming episode but not sure when it’ll be released yet. I might do a little written piece over there for it as part of our Ang Lee retrospective season recap.
