So, things are eventful. Must be tuesday.  
Happy birthday slartibartfast! ~ ♥ I do hope you're having a lovely day of celebrating, happily and safely of course.

It was happy hour while watching "Parasite" last night. Filled with loads of Mohinder/Sylar goodness with the extra Zach and Sendhil on the side. Though the commentary in between commercials was SO freaking short. It should've been longer, but whatever. It was worth it anyway since, them and their adorable gorgeous selves. Besides, I have DVDs to drool over so, yay! Yeah, so totally worth it.

Apparently, there are two official promo shots for the remake of A Tale of Two Sisters. Okay, I've already expressed my anger regarding yet another Americanized remake of a foreign classic, but I'm torn with it. This might be a decently made movie if done in the right kind of atmosphere and feel, although one thing's for certain: it'll never match up to par with the original. Never. I say this for all remakes of classic films, despite my loathing for it in general. Plus, I like Emily Browning so this kind of exposure, aside from ASOUE, can actually be good for her career. Though I simply adore the original version, this may be good if given the right kind of direction without straying away from the suspense or storytelling. I may give it a chance once I see more of what they're doing with it.

But the remake of Battle Royale will certainly NOT do the novel nor the original movie justice, at all. Especially if they're watering it down with the violence for "sensitive audiences". Pssh, whatever.

Here's my Rec of the Day: Ayumi Hamasaki - "Talkin' 2 Myself" PV. Not only is this song awesome because it's another rock-style single of hers, but the video is wicked hot and amazing. There's just something about Ayu getting dirty, dancing fiercely in the rain, plus sporting the short hair which is very reminescent of her earlier days. Love this song, the PV, and Ayu in general. It's also great for working out, I find.

The remakes are rarely as good as their predecessors, which makes me wonder why people insist on remaking them. It's like, can't they just read subtitles of the originals or something? Seriously, it boggles my mind.

Yeah, I was waiting for more of them talking about the episode. But even with the limited commentary, they were pretty weren't they? Plus it's a good excuse to watch the episode again. Hee. I LOVED the Mohinder/Sylar scenes, still got scared near the end though. I did like how even though Sylar telekinetically stopped the bullet, Mohinder was at first shocked then shaking with fear and frustration. He had that angry look in his eye as Sylar was coming at him. Whoa, angry!Mohinder is hot. Especially with a gun, that was even hotter.

I guess they figure that since the originals made money, the remakes will too? >.>

me too T.T hahaha! angry!mohinder! "This is revenge" "You are your father's son"

stopping the IV... how could you, Sylar?? It was supposed to take away all your power! x.x; Mohinder... find better weapons! lol.

Which is lousy logic in itself. And that's why most remakes are all about the money and not about the substance of the story, and that's sad. :/

Hee, seriously. This is what I think when Mohinder is pointing the gun angrily at Sylar: "My name is Mohinder Suresh. You killed my father, prepare to die!"

Poor Mo, he never seems to catch a break does he? He does something for the greater good, to fulfill and complete his father's work and avenge his death, only to get this act of heroism thrown back into his face. Although you have to admit, both Mohinder and Sylar underestimated each other in this episode. Mohinder thought that the curare would weaken him, only to discover that Sylar is much more powerful than he'd ever imagined (and quite cunning and manipulative, too); Sylar thought Mohinder was daft and dense for not realizing that it was really had much like most of the audience until this episode surfaced, but was completely fooled. It was very well played by the both of them, even if it left Mohinder a ceiling ornament....

I LOVE this discussion of Mohinder we're having, hee. *uses pretty Mohinder icon*

I know! ;.; I did like the Ring, though... it was so sad! But the second one... ... ...*glares at it*

hohoho~~ I was so proud of Mohinder there! I was like 'oh yes, you're finally awesome! Everyone will know you're awesome... *sylar stops bullet* DAMN IT!' ;.; never a break... he was so cute when he was like 'lets be friends, not-Sylar! lalilalila~~ we can fight Sylar together! *tee* I finally have a friend! lalilalila!' ;.;

Me too!! I was laughing at your comment and my roommate was like, 'what?' and I told her what you said and she didn't understand at all... but I kept laughing, lol... She's gonna watch Heroes from the beginning ^.^

I want a pretty Mohinder icon!!

Yeah, The Ring was pretty darn creepifying (the second one, really lame though). I've seen both versions, and I can't tell which one I'm more disturbed by. :X

Mohinder and Zane!Sylar was pretty awesome, though. Even though he didn't know it was Sylar at the time they met, I liked the idea of them hitting the road finding other Specials together, and Sylar adapted into the role of Zane so perfectly. Of course the audience was all "OMG that's Sylar! Don't you see!!" But really...Mohinder didn't even know what Sylar looked like, so how could he? He was pretty damn clever to have figured it out on his own without freaking out. He played it cool, and then was all "haha, got you Sylar!" That was totally Mohinder's YATTA! moment right there.

HEE! It's pretty awesome, isn't it? Have you seen the little video someone placed together, which is a collection of Mohinder's "obsession" over his father's research, with random Sylar thrown in? It's pretty damn hilarious and much of the eyecandy. ;)

I liked the american version a lot for the Ring, I think... more than the original if I remember correctly... lol. I think it was the whole throwing-samara-into-the-well bit with her crazy mother that got me ^.^

I know!!! He is pretty cool, I'm not gonna lie ^.^ I want death!tea too! hohoho... it was cool that he just had that lying around... he was so proud of his little conquest, too! ^.^

lol! *always* SYLAR! lol! poor Mohinder... will you ever win? 'apparently my power is narration...' ^.^

oh! and I found these pretty zach icons while I was looking for some Mohinder ones ^.^

I think what got me in the Japanese version was the closeup of the crazy wide-eye, looking down. It's really unsettling. The American one had the nice cuts, the tape visuals along with the fast-cuts with the decaying corpses. Those creeped me out the most!

Heh, I'll make sure to send you some "special" chai for Christmas. ;)

I really like Mohinder's narrations/monologues. Some find them pointless, but they actually make sense when you take the time to listen/read them closely. Besides, his voice is just...GUH! I could listen to him all day... *sigh*

Thanks for the link! I think I pretty much have almost all Zach/Sylar icons I could find. I went on a shameless hunt to find loads of Sylar and Mohinder ones, and I've found bundles of. I swear, my harddrive is going to break with their ultimate hotness clogging up the space. *giggles*
