This was a very beautiful love story and I was quite gutted at the end of it.
Eddie Redmayne's portrayal of Stephen Hawking was extraordinary and one can certainly see why he deserves all the recognition he is getting for it. The long supportive wife played by Felicity Jones was also fabulously touching. Even though I can't place her in anything I've seen it turns out she has actually been in many films before like The Amazing Spiderman 2. She's so super cute and pretty though I'm glad she finally got the chance to shine!
Seeing this movie isn't new, can I assume everything has seen it or at least already know what this movie was about? Just in case, this is the love story of Professor and Mrs Hawkings - how they met, their journey through his illness that was supposed to claim his short life. The twist, as the struggles began to lift for them, they separated. I know you can't rewrite people's lives and I'm certainly not complaining that they didn't change the plot for a more Hollywood ending, but I am struggling to come to terms with it a little.
I have this compulsive need to dissect things until I find answers.
It was wrapped up in black & white that they remain great companions to this day. All the more - then why? Does love just run out? For their bond to have conquered so much, what makes you give it up instead when it is finally starting to paying off? Or am I being discriminative that such a marriage should be different from other marriages (where half end in divorces)?
Also, was anybody else a little disappointed that there weren't more about the man's brilliance? Deeper explanations of his ideas and physics? As much as I blame this on the title, this certainly is a film I can rewatch and get just as touched.
It's been forever - I know! As you might already know, a lot has changed since I started this blog and now live as a "professional" hobbyist haha. I know I am living the dream of most boys, having turned video gaming, toys building and movies/TV watching into a full-time job. (Have a quick look at my new Instagram now integrated!)
So I've decided to start reshaping my blog a little and make it more relevant again. I know most of you following are here in interest for fashion/beauty but if anything, just means I now have SO much more to share with y'all!
So I watched Jupiter Ascending last night. Going to try my best to keep it concise.
Huge budget with loads of CGI's and a very visually stimulating film (ahem Channing Tatum & Mila Kunis). I get that they must show their technological capacity off but a lot of the action scenes would have been much more impactful if they were more concise (we both found ourselves spacing out almost every time). There was a great deal of zero-gravity / 360 swooshing around on multiple platforms in all the fight scenes which was quite impressive.
Look away now if you haven't watched it already but let's talk about the story. The most obvious flaw was the lack of human context when Mila was first captured into outer space. Any normal human being would have been a lot more surprised than she was. All the 'culture' shock moments were a great opportunity for humour. As much as I loved their core concept that Time is the most valuable commodity as the ultimate battle, I find myself having to fill in a lot of blanks along the story.
Now I love Mila Kunis but she came across very stiff here when she is normally so charming! What happened! Channing Tatum in my eyes can do no wrong but one would expect him to be more ripped (i.e. Magic Mike) in that topless scene than he was. Well I understand that even he is only human but still a tad bit disappointed is all. My god he's so dreamy..."your majesty".
Finally - let's talk outfits! What is up with that wedding get up?! In a gothic church-like environment why would the groom and bride be in some outrageously red Japanese x Chinese costume? It felt very forced and disconnected like the rest of the gowns Mila wore - just to tick the glamour box almost. I felt that even the last HungerGames (where most people were in identical grey jumpsuits) had better and more relevant costumes than they did in Jupiter Ascending. It was also quite amusing to find Funko Pop achieving a more successful take of this look than its original debut on screen.
All in all, I'm disappointed! I mean I have seen worse movies of course but this one had such potential! 2.5/5 stars?
So we've got two weeks of spring!! I'm absolutely loving it as, well, who wouldn't?
I'm absolutely obsessed with this clutch. It comes in both black and white - this is obviously the white, while the black carries black spike studs. They are super gorgeous! They are handmade by the London brand Vivian Ying - where again (see last post) you have an exclusive half price coupon to shop at! Simply type in YNMS50 at checkout and get investing on your designer leather clutch!!
P.S. My nails are Gwen Stefani for OPI's Satin Black; which on its own is basically just matte black... what do you guys think? I personally would probably rather a matte topcoat...

Isn't this just the cutest outfit ever? I was invited to attend TG last weekend and this was my outfit for it - do we adore? It's my first latex outfit ever and I must say I simply love every part of it! The level of liberation was intimidating at first but eye opening and frankly exhilarating soon after! It was an experience I'll never forget and I'm going again next month hah!
I feel like the pieces that make this outfit is so fun that it could be taken apart for every-day mix and match. After all, wetlooks, PVC, and leather fashion are already so widely in mainstream. The glossy look and texture of latex is simply irreplaceable!
