++ Wonder Girls are officially disbanding, and this makes me incredibly sad. First it was 4Minute, then 2NE1, and now the Wonder Girls. These were the quintessential Kpop girl groups that all debuted in the mid-2000s. Wonder Girls underwent a lot throughout the years, and had just make their comeback last year after a prolonged hiatus. And now they're no more. I was hoping that the recent news of breaking away for JYP Entertainment would have them looking to another company to be signed under, but nope. While I know the girls will be doing things individually, I was really looking forward to seeing what else they could do as a group, since their comeback was so good. Some of their most iconic songs over the years include: "Irony", "Tell Me", "So Hot", "Nobody" (the single they performed while touring with the Jonas Brothers in the U.S.), and their 2016 comeback single, "I Feel You". Thank you, Wonder Girls, for everything, wishing you all the best and may your futures be bright and successful. ♥

++ I'll be honest, I'm not really that attached to the X-Men franchise, however with Logan, just based off the trailers alone, especially the latest one that was released, I'm actually looking forward to seeing what it may bring. Perhaps it's due to the fact that it looks absolutely nothing like the previous X-Men films, less with the blockbuster flash and more emotionally raw and character driven, which seems to be exactly what fans have been wanting for years in regards to a Logan/Wolverine story on the big screen. Considering this is Hugh Jackman's final appearance in the franchise, this is the perfect sendoff for him and his character. Furthermore, just the concept of this film pushes all my buttons: there's the found family aspect with the bonding between Logan and this little girl, along with a redemption arc for his character, and just, ugh, yes. I have such a weakness for those kinds of stories. The fact that this slightly resembles The Last Of Us doesn't help, either (and it might be the closest thing we'll get seeing TLOU live action movie for a while, so I'll take what I can get). If nothing else, I'll be going into this movie for that alone. Plus, the little girl (X-23) being a badass? Sign me the fuck up, please.

++ We finally have the official title for the next Star Wars installment: Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Let all the speculations of what that means begin! I'll just be waiting until December, or at least until we get the first official teaser trailer.

I wasn't expecting to be as excited as I am about Logan, but the trailers have convinced me.

I'm trying not to get my hopes too high (since trailers can be majorly misleading), but it does look quite promising, just from the tone and mood of how the story is presented. It's going to be one emotional ride, that's for sure.

I'm not that surprised that WONDER GIRL is disbanding, regarding what happened last years - practically nothing musically speaking - and the leaving of Sunmi, her comeback then the departure of Sunye and Shoe I knew it would take long before they would disband them. Despite the fact that they tried a new concept band - with instruments - I felt that JYP was trying to come up with a decent end for this historical group.
I can't get over 2NE1 disbanding :( I loved them so muuuuuch and Minzy was my favorite for so long.
Renéerogueslayer452 on January 27th, 2017 08:12 pm (UTC)
In hindsight I shouldn't be surprised, there were a lot of things that happened over the years that kind of predicted this would happen sooner or later, however at the same time I was at least hoping that they would still remain together, at least for a couple more albums. I loved the Wonder Girls ever since they debuted, and I was excited for their new sound and direction, so hearing this was disheartening. :(

I kinda saw 2NE1's disbandment coming when CL started doing her solo stuff and trying to make it in the US market. I'm more shocked by 4Minute, though.

oh I like the soundtrack of you life! Especially Prom Night, Driving and Birth of a Child =) haven't seen this meme for ages.
I've read about the Wonder Girls, but there're no feelings attached from my side. But if it makes so sad than it makes me sad.
there was a time I really liked X-Man, but over the years I lost the connection. But the trailer for Logan looks great and it's definitely on my watchlist.
Star Wars <3
Renéerogueslayer452 on January 27th, 2017 08:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you! It's definitely a good meme, and kind of an excuse to share the kind of music you've been enjoying lately. :)

I've followed the Wonder Girls since they debuted, so it was extra heartbreaking especially since they had just returned with a new album. It's always disheartening hearing that they, along with other iconic groups, have disbanded very recently. :(

I saw that someone had put screenshots of the Star Wars titles next to each other so it spelled out "The Force Awakens/The Last Jedi" which, maybe interesting and maybe nothing at all? Time will tell. xD :D
Profiterole: OT6 Peace_profiterole_ on January 27th, 2017 07:52 pm (UTC)
Nice! Now we can invent titles for the 9th movie based on this model:
From a Deep Sleep
With Fanfare
Out of Darkness

I'm not very good at this. XD
Renée: Rey. Heroine's Journey.rogueslayer452 on January 28th, 2017 12:48 am (UTC)
Yeah, I saw that too and I thought it was very interesting. Could it lead to something significant or is it just a mere coincidence? Who knows. But it's an interesting theory nonetheless.
Profiterole_profiterole_ on January 27th, 2017 07:49 pm (UTC)
I don't really get the excitement of writers for the concept of "The Last [insert name]".
dhampyresadhampyresa on January 27th, 2017 09:13 pm (UTC)
The logo is red! By Clone Wars rules, that means Darth Maul's coming back from the dead.
Renée: Rey. Child of the Desert.rogueslayer452 on January 28th, 2017 01:48 pm (UTC)
I do find it rather intriguing that the SW logo is red this time, and it leaves much to speculate on what that symbolizes.
Lauren: Princess Bunseowyn on January 28th, 2017 06:01 am (UTC)
I quite like that the new SW title flows on from the first. "The Force Awakens ... The Last Jedi ............ From His Nap." XD

Can't take credit for the last, saw that on FB.
Renée: Star Wars. Rey.rogueslayer452 on January 28th, 2017 01:47 pm (UTC)
I saw that on Tumblr, and I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't understand it at first, but then when I did I thought it was mighty clever. But it is interesting that the titles do seem to flow rather well. We'll have to see whether the last film will follow suit or be something completely different.
Lauren: Power Converters and Ieowyn on January 28th, 2017 09:58 pm (UTC)
I'm hoping it goes: The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, And He Goes Back To Sleep. XD
Ery-chanerychan86 on January 28th, 2017 02:52 pm (UTC)
Great soundtrack! I'm checking out some f the tunes!!!
Renée: Inara Serra. Smile.rogueslayer452 on January 28th, 2017 09:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I like these kinds of memes because it gives you a peek into what kind of music someone is into, and introduces you to something new. I have quite an eclectic music collection so whatever randomly popped up during my shuffle is just a mere taste of what I listen to, at least currently. ;)

I'm expecting to have at least one good cry during Logan. Between the story itself and seeing Hugh Jackman as Wolverine for the last time, I'll be emotional.

Renéerogueslayer452 on January 29th, 2017 12:57 am (UTC)
And since it is his last time portraying Logan/Wolverine I'm pretty sure it was intentional for going in the Old Logan direction, therefore it's definitely going to be an emotional rollarcoaster. I haven't cared much about the franchise but I know I'll get teary-eyed from all the feels. :'(
Sarah: Cassandra [Excited]nebulasan on January 29th, 2017 04:59 am (UTC)
Nice, I haven't seen that meme in a long time. I have to say, after seeing the trailer for Logan I am pretty curious to see it now.
Renéerogueslayer452 on January 29th, 2017 11:54 am (UTC)
Yeah, I was only vaguely aware about Logan (heard about the announcement years ago) until the trailers started showing up, and now my interest his gone up quite a bit.
an idea is bulletproofelizalavelle on January 31st, 2017 11:31 am (UTC)
I enjoy X-Men but the Old Man Logan movie looks phenomenal. I'm pretty sure I'll ugly cry at the theatre but I'm going to see it anyway :)
Driver Picks the Musicbatmarg on February 3rd, 2017 09:13 pm (UTC)
I've not really enjoyed any of the Xmen stuff since X2, but Logan looks really good. Though, to be fair, based on it being Hugh Jackman's last one, I'd probably go see it even if it wasn't.

So excited about Star Wars!!!
Renéerogueslayer452 on February 6th, 2017 11:07 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I agree. I like that this is the direction they've decided to take for his last appearance in the franchise, and regardless of anyone's feelings about the previous films this one will be appropriately emotional as his swan song.
Kelly: comics // xmen // jubilee & wolverineteagues_veil on February 5th, 2017 09:37 pm (UTC)
X-23 makes any and all X-Men endeavors better, imo. :)

Renéerogueslayer452 on February 6th, 2017 10:53 pm (UTC)
Totally. Instantly I was like, "yes, she's already my favorite" just from the trailers alone. :)

I am so so sad with the Wonder Girls disbanding as well :( They were basically the group that paved the way for other kpop groups to become a hit here in the Philippines. Nobody was such a big hit it was used by SOOOO MANY POLITICIANS for their election jingles even after 2 years since the song was released. Their comeback was so good and refreshing as well so this really comes as a surprise to me. And I was really rooting for them from the very start because they're one of the very few girl groups where the girls genuinely like each other :( I really hoped they would sign in another company together but that doesn't seem like the case now. I'll take what I can from their goodbye song </3 So excited for Logan too!!!! I really hope they don't fuck up the plots and the timelines.
Renéerogueslayer452 on February 15th, 2017 10:21 am (UTC)
It makes me incredibly sad. So many girl groups have been announced to disbanding very recently, and it breaks my heart. I know that none of them would be forever, but Wonder Girls just had a brilliant comeback with a new sound and everything, and I was looking forward to more of what they were going to do, and then suddenly they disbanded. :(

So excited for Logan too!!!! I really hope they don't fuck up the plots and the timelines.

To be fair, the X-Men films didn't have a constant record of remaining within their own continuity anyway. I think Logan may be in a different timeline, though. I don't know.
