Z is for iZombie.

I’m going to keep this post relatively short, as while I have loved this challenge, I’m also slightly burnt out from it. I’ve been posting these twice a week for 13 weeks!! That’s over three months! I’m very happy to have made it to the end, and will not take on something like this again 😀

Anyway, iZombie is a show I fell into by accident. I don’t remember how I found out about it, but I watch CW a lot in general since all the superhero shows are on there, and this sounded intriguing.

Here’s the premise. Liv is a medical resident who decides to go to a party which ends up getting attacked by zombies. Are you hooked already? Anyway, Liv ends gets scratched and ends up a zombie. However, she is still determined to pass as a regular human, despite her super pale appearance, and general apathy (being dead tends to make you lose interest in things). She ends up working at a coroner’s office where she can secretly snack on fresh human brains (she puts them in things like smoothies or sandwiches). This also means she takes on traits of the brains she snacks on (as well as memories), which allows her to pretend to be a psychic and help out a detective solve crimes (specifically murders).

This show is silly, fun, and reminds me a little of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The perfect mix of horror, drama, and comedy. I really recommend checking it out!

Let’s end it on some random gifs!

Anyway, I’m keen to know if anyone else has watched this show? Or heard of it? 😀

I plan to post one more time next Tuesday to do a little wrap up and masterpost of this A-Z Challenge, cause I am super proud that I managed to get it done!

Day 13 – A Favourite Love Story

10 Things I Hate About You

Image result for 10 things i hate about you

This is also probably one of my favourite teen movies of all time. It’s just so fun. I’m not really into all the star crossed lovers thing, or the ones where one of them dies at the end, and it’s all bittersweet. My favourite love story is between Kat (Julia Stiles) and Patrick (Heath Ledger).

In the movie, the younger sister Bianca can’t go out with boys until her older sister goes out with someone (which she won’t as she hates everyone). So she concocts a plan with others to get Patrick to try ‘woo’ Kat. It’s based off Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew. It’s just such a fun movie, and I love the chemistry between the two characters. I love the whole trope where bickering leads to love.

Day 12 – Your Favourite Animated Movie

The Incredibles

You guys will know by now that I am a huge fan of animation. I have watched countless Disney and Pixar films, and it’s always hard for me to narrow down favourites. However, The Incredibles is definitely up there. It combines both my love of animation and superhero!

This film also had the best short!

This animation takes place in a world where superheros are a given. It’s not important how they got their powers, but they just have them and they save the world. After an incident, they’re forced into hiding and to lead ‘normal’ lives. We follow the adventures of the Incredibles family, where the parents were superheros, and now their kids have powers too. Just seriously watch the film! Its so funny and amazing!

Day 11 – Your Favourite Movie From Your Childhood

The Little Mermaid

Along with many other 90’s kids, I grew up with Disney. I watched a lot of them growing up. I was going back and forth between The Lion King and The Little Mermaid. I love all the other Disney films as well, but these two are the ones I clearly remember watching when I was little.

However, Ariel was for a while everything to me. The main reason, she was a mermaid (I loved going to the pools), and she could siiiiing. I remember singing along to the songs, particularly Part of your world. Eric was cool too, but he didn’t sing so pffft. He did have crazy blue eyes though (as does Ariel). Then of course, there was Sebastian. I love Sebastian, he ended up being the comic sidekick, and also he had some amazing songs of his own. Also as a grown up, I tend to side with him more. He’s a lot more practical while Ariel is definitely a dreamer.

Also, I was vaguely scared of Ursula as a kid, but now I love her. She’s so evil and fabulous. Her song is now my favourite song from the movie, and I sing along to it loud and proud.

Yu-Gi-Oh!

Yu-Gi-Oh!

Alright, so this is gonna be interesting to see who watched this show, and who has no idea what I’m talking about. Also, second to last letter, we’ve almost made it through the whole alphabet!!

Y is for Yu-Gi-Oh!

So this is one of the animes that I was absolutely obsessed with when I was younger. I watched this whole series as a kid, and got very invested in all the goings on of the show. I also love this:

Image result for it's time to duel gif

It’s basically a meme now. Okay, how do I explain this show..

A shy high-school student named Yugi Moto receives the fragmented pieces of an Egyptian artifact, known as the Millennium Puzzle, from his grandfather. When Yugi reassembles the puzzle he is possessed by the 3,000-year-old spirit of an ancient pharaoh. Yugi and his friends Joey, Tea and Hondo protect the puzzle, which contains powerful secrets many people would like to possess.

That’s from it’s Wiki. It doesn’t even talk about the cards. Anyway, the gist is that everyone plays this game called Duel Monsters. You have a deck full of monsters, traps, spells and such and you fight against another player. You have a certain number of lifepoints, and when they reach zero, you’re ‘dead’ and you lose the match. They link this game to lots of ‘Shadow Realm’ things where the monsters and matches become a lot more real. Look, it’s complicated to explain, but its one of the most well-known animes, along with Pokemon and DragonBall Z.

Day 10 – Your Favourite Director

Edgar Wright

I don’t pay attention to directors too much, but as I’ve said, I’m a fan of the Cornetto trilogy, and all three were directed by Edgar Wright.

I then found out he directed lots of other films I like.

Edgar Wright Movies

He has a very particular style in his films, lots of fast edits, music, and visual storytelling. It’s hard to explain, but if you know his movies then you’ll know what I’m talking about.

In fact, this video talks about it well.

Have you guys seen Edgar Wright’s films?

Day 9 – A Movie You Practically Know the Whole Script To

The Last Five Years

So for this one, I was going to talk about a musical or animation, and since I did an animation yesterday, I chose a musical for today. I talked about this movie in Angela’s Favourite Musicals.  It’s originally done on stage (Which I’ve never seen), but I love the movie version. I know the whole album (and therefore the movie) pretty much off-by heart.

Image result for the last five years

Basically, the film follows Cathy and Jamie and their love story over the span of five years. From meeting, to falling in love, to getting married, to their break up. What I love about this film is that it’s kind of in reverse order. The film opens with Cathy at the end of the relationship, heartbroken. Then it jumps to Jamie’s point of view when they first meet and they’re head over heels. The film continues in this way. It goes backwards with Cathy, but goes forward for Jamie, where they meet in the middle for a duet when they get married. It sounds confusing, but it works so well.

My favourite is definitely the last song (the only other duet), where Cathy has just met Jamie and is completely happy in love “Goodbye Until Tomorrow”, but Jamie is singing goodbye at the end of a 5 year relationship with her “I Could Never Rescue You”.

Have you guys heard of or seen this film?

Day 8 – A movie that makes you sad

Toy Story 3

This movie technically makes me happy too, no film comes to mind that only brings up sad emotions. A lot of the movies that make me happy also have sad moments. For example, Toy Story 3.

I really enjoyed the first two Toy Story’s, and watched them so many times over and over on DVD. As someone who was very attached to her toys, had an overactive imagination which led to my toys going on various adventures, I really liked the idea of toys being alive. The moment that made me cry was not the end, but that scene in the garbage incinerator.

You guys who have seen this movie will know what I’m talking about.

So yeah, this is a movie that makes me sad.

Day 7 – A Movie that makes you Happy

Wall-E

A lot of movies make me happy, the first ones that came to mind where all animations, funnily enough. But Wall-E will always have a special place in my heart, cause it’s just so gosh darn cute!!

Image result for wall-e
Look at that cute robot

Wall-E is my favourite Pixar movie, it always leaves me with such a happy feeling, that I knew this had to be my pick for this prompt. For those who haven’t seen Wall-E, it’s set in 2805. Earth has been abandoned as there’s just too much trash everywhere. Everyone is now on a big cruise ship in space hanging out waiting for the “Waste Allocation Load Lifter – Earth” (Wall-E) class robots to clean up. It’s been 700 years since all  the humans went up to space and now Wall-e is the last robot left. He’s developed a curious personality about all things human, and he’s a little lonely. He meets EVE, a fancy new robot sent to find any plant life living on Earth. Wall-E ends up following her, and together  they wind up on an adventure across the galaxy.

Seriously, this movie is so cute!! A lot of the film has minimal dialogue, the characters without voices communicate through body language and robotic sounds.

Here’s a scene with my other favourite robot MO. He must clean all things.

Have you guys seen Wall-E?
