Why “Beauty and the Beast” was actually pretty great:
  • the music is not good, it’s great
  • production design, costumes (even the freaking yellow dress which is actually quite gorgeous on camera), everything is truly beautiful and quite breathtaking at moments
  • the acting was surprisingly wonderful. it’s disney, it’ll be cheesy at moments—but for the most part, it was terrific
  • this is not a childish adaptation
  • when it gets dark, it gets DARK. 
  • g a s t o n
  • new songs! new character development! 
  • the cgi is not even that bad. in fact, there are moments when it’s pretty seamless. the practical sets and effects compensated for it, in my mind.
  • and when it’s wonky? you won’t care because you’ll be too busy smiling
  • there is some hilarious shit in this movie
  • the beast’s expressions are actually amazing; you can really see the actor moving beneath them 
  • T H E    M U S I C
  • you get to see little kids and adults all freaking out the whole time
  • emma watson will make your heart stop she is so beautiful
  • sneaky political/ethical gestures that made me cheer
  • this movie is so pure and we need that right now
  • and by the end? i just started laughing and crying—in excess joy. i couldn’t believe it. i’ve never been moved by a movie like that in my life.
  • it won’t please everybody but if you loved the original and if you are prepared to attempt to enjoy it for what it is—a colorful, painterly, vibrant adaptation of a beloved story—then go watch it.

New series, so stay tuned for future updates and you can also follow me but only if you want to like its your choice, you don’t have to but it would be nice.

Standing in my own kitchen, I felt like a guest in my own home as two of my so called ‘best friends’ left me out of a conversation about their love lives, which might I add one constantly talked about non stopped; he broke her heart twice resulting in her blocking him on everything social media related and that included his phone number. Still rambling on about how she let him back into her life her repetitive words rang out the whole kitchen.

“I’m gonna start a fight with him tomorrow because he pissed me off today” she explained to us or more like to my other friend, Jessica, who ate up every word she spits out like a baby bird getting fed by their mother for the first time, I rolled my eyes. “ I don’t care about him anymore, he broke my heart and I found that he wasn’t as good looking as I thought he was” I scoffed at her statement.

What are your favorite web series? I just started finished Poe Party and I need more!!!!!!

Ooooh my dear you have opened a Pandora’s box of webseries fangirling. 

So because Poe Party’s cinematically shot, I’ll start with a few of those:

(Mostly) Cinematic Webseries

Firstly if you haven’t seen it, Shipwrecked’s previous series “Kissing in the Rain” is very sweet, just about 2 sets of actors who always end up playing romantic leads (usually in literary adaptations) and how different their relationships off-camera are. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLs2T_dNZ-XW7q7eqkRL1VXBiyaC_5VXRW . Although it’s lots of mini-adaptations of pieces of writing she likes rather than a running narative, I also really like Yulin Kuang (1/3 of Shipwrecked)’s series “I Didn’t Write This”, it’s so pretty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4FblEn7b1Y&list=PL9KxVMEYAaYJzVKZ8QWvhoT7_GZuxhBiF


is about a misfit group of American College kids who basically start their own pirate radio channel and it’s adorable and funny: 


 (And also this creative/production group generally have the BEST bts videos, almost as fun to watch as the actual series.). By the same team there’s

Pantheon University ,

which is a series of interlocking stories all based on modernisations of different myths about gods in the Greek Pantheon. And every episode is also really stylistically different which is cool, there’s even a musical episode :)

Bright Summer Night isn’t my favourite series by The Candle Wasters but it has moments of pure genius, it’s a modernisation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream set at a New Zealand house party. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZ4M4eic7acRxRp2L-0Lrcvd_c1PpP1Fp

The Vault is more of a thriller-type series with lots of cool twists where you’re constantly trying to work out what’s going on. It’s based around the idea of a reality show where college students are all trapped in a vault of rooms trying to solve this huge puzzle together but then things start going wrong and no one’s sure whether it’s part of the game. I personally wasn’t thrilled with the ending but it’s still a great ride. Trigger Warning for scenes suggesting suicide. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ8XGe1s42E&list=PLMEYHN507zgBMaQTIH94ozX2A-iPnbQTs

Couple-ish is a comedy-drama where Dee is a non binary person whose sister convinces them to pretend to be in a relationship with her crush Rachel to stop her getting deported but Dee’s also just got a new boyfriend and it all snowballs. There’s some vlog-style videos too because that’s the main way Rachel and Dee stage their fake dating to the world. It’s pretty excellent. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLL2lDb-eVLsjzpJmj4iyZrqqjH742WPiu 

Titus and Dronicus is really short but it’s about a duo of incompetent detectives trying to solve the case of Hamlet and it’s hilarious. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2bbOlgYtd8&list=PLOIz0BhLGYKeu0Ei-PGWX1n2GDT279AA7

All’s Fair Play basically about an engagement party that goes horribly wrong and also every character is based on a Shakespeare character. Definitely gets better as it goes but it’s not that long really anyway. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkX3sToIqxAnlnMvCANQhULDDpKW53PHz

Webseries about Famous Writers

The Writing Majors is vlog-style and also one of my all time favourite series. It’s basically about if Jane Austen, Oscar Wilde and Emily Dickenson were all modern day college students who shared a flat and it’s really sincere and lovely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-n2dbesZlM&list=PLEmQieiFpEckcSVLbbZaKeDW6Q39kn6zQ

Words with Wilde is another vlog-style series, this time about the life of Australian teenage Oscar Wilde (Isn’t he popular)  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0HZHmfA8es-4TTDrNSm28NBx_VPyYvrQ

Blank Verse I haven’t personally seen this one but I know it’s about modern versions of renaissance writers https://www.youtube.com/user/BlankVerseTV

A few more of my all-time favourites

The Autobiography of Jane Eyre is a vlog-style modernisation of Jane Eyre, revolutionised vlog-style series and beliefs about the budget and resources you needed to make one when it came out and just really beautifully told, probably my favourite ever webseries. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3NxAiyc-89HP3wHV2y5mbwi2TidvocKZ

Nothing Much to Do is based on Much Ado about Nothing, its sequel Lovely Little Losers is based off Love Labours Lost, both made by a group of young women in New Zealand about a group of late school/early university kids in Nnew Zealand, both vlog-style and warm and inventive and excellent. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iakDRoQg-sM&list=PLgtRIWtmHefNSmhLGzm87bM6AKzWvD-ls They are why Jane Eyre is only “probably” my favourite ever webseries. 

From Mansfield with Love is a modernisation of Mansfield Park and their take on “Frankie” Price especially is truly amazing. It’s also one of the relatively few british literary vlogseries. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njBFxjzu7_E&list=PLmsm7oFLjXNecAKxAdpf8YQ4ezL3H7lEA . (It is also super long.) Don’t want to be too overdramatic but these 3 lots of series in combination at least helped get me through a lot of bad times, at most possibly saved my life, so they’re pretty special and brilliant. 

The Misselthwaite Archives is one I helped to develop and write a bit, it’s gorgeously shot and snarky and sad and hopeful and concise. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBrAchWhB2Q&list=PLTR39SK4S7yz8gfxz7pEevZe5jEkgHiyn part vlog style, part cinematic, path other styles.

Currently Airing

If you want something new to follow along with…

The Better Strangers is technically a sequel series but watching the first one isn’t mandatory and I think the crew really hit their stride with this one. Vlog-style loose modernisation of As You Like It, very funny. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLP1jFbh_ZqnJQG_SWQBv7X6j0Bim6TLff

The Adventures of Serena Berg is a modernisation of Cyrano de Bergerac. Again, snarky and sad and great fun. Also the first literary webseries I’ve seen with a trans woman protag which is cool https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdOSFhd5rRPXXvbC8oeDaeOvZxCpj-FN8

The Cate Morland Chronicles cute modernisation of Northanger Abbey where Cate is like a fandom journalist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqOG9unl8i4qE-ECzoWlJX11BVggB3hhj (There’s also a previous vlog-style adaptation of Northanger Abbey which I probably prefer, Northbound  but I just love that there’s 2 to pick fro. )

Project Green Gables A vlog-style modernisation of Anne of Green Gables that constantly makes excellent adaptation choices (For example Anne’s black and buys dodgy hair relaxer instead of green hair dye.) very charming, currently airing it’s second season https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN_BtyNHNPJ3nUGTr6V505g . Again, there’s a previous, more sticking-to-the-source-text adaptation called Green Gables Fables that finished a few months back and is adorable.  

I haven’t managed to catch The Uncanny Upshurs yet but that started a few days ago, promises to have magic and drama and has a great team behind it https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ8EO_YxrP-zx0Sdj5NjE6Q

Mina Murray’s Journal finished like last week? It’s quite a clever Dracula modernisation with great production value. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJ10oDkIZU4

There’s also the series I created (With a lot of collaboration and help with amazing people) Away from it All, which is a vlog-styleish modernisation of Far from the Madding Crowd and we’re releasing our 6th episode this Thursday :)  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLS3qBQLYbPsggdVg8u2FURrZE38TOEutt

This got shorter as it went because I really should have gone to bed an hour ago xD anyway, hope that helps!! Wishing you good fortune on your webseries journey  x

Fomantis & Lurantis 

Fomantis is nocturnal, and it performs photosynthesis while it sleeps during the day by spreading out its leaves in all directions. Because of the danger of staying in the same location two days in a row, Fomantis begins its search for the next day’s spot as soon as the sun sets.For Fomantis, photosynthesis is not just a source of energy—it is a necessity to achieve the strength and brilliant coloration of its evolved form. Photosynthesis is precious to Fomantis, and it will fiercely attack those who get in the way of that process.

Lurantis draws opponents near to itself with its flowerlike appearance and aroma—and then it takes them down. It’s said to be the most gorgeous of all Grass-type Pokemon, due to its brilliant coloration and elegant moves. Lurantis’s appearance is maintained through detailed grooming. It will trust a Trainer who does a good job of caring for it, but it will apparently have a difficult time growing closer to a lazy Trainer.
