10 Things You Hate At Movie Theaters
1. Wrappers/Slurping/Eating PLEASE OPEN YOUR CANDY BAR BEFORE THE MOVIE. You know exactly what I'm talking about as if hearing your popcorn crunch in your mouth wasn't enough. It's always the same person throughout the entire movie constantly rustling their fingers through a bag of plastic to get one last Skittle. They're so immersed in the movie that they forget that plastic makes noise. Also, slurping that $6 small slushy is just as obnoxious as you think it is. You can hold on to your manners and still enjoy your movie. 2. Awkward Couple Making Out In Back Row Just ew. There are hundreds of thousands of places to be intimate with your partner. However, for some reason, movie theaters seem to be a hotbed for this kind of activity. You always know who the couple is too because they don't scan the audience when they walk in or stop on their way to the top debating as to where they should sit. They go directly to the top preferably in the corner where the step safety lights seem not to reach. They wait patiently until the movie begins and then before you know it, they might as well be having full on sex. Please keep the thrill of making out with your significant other somewhere else. 3. Children They kick the seats. The bounce between chairs. They get scared and snuggle up to their mom. They laugh at all the wrong times. They drop their candy everywhere and talk the entire movie. They're kids. It's easy to say we were the perfect children in this kind of situation even though we know that we were in the same position once upon a time. However, bringing your child to a PG-13 movie or above is completely off limits. Kids get a free pass at G-rated movies, completely understandable. However, once children begin to infringe on teenager and adult viewing activity, there's an issue. 4. The Middle-Aged Lady Who Cries Next To You Every sad movie always results with some middle-aged lady two seats down from you bawling over some minor upset in the movie. It begins with a slight tear completely unnoticeable but then grows into a full flowing waterfall. She keeps sniffling, you then see her make her move to find tissues in her purse, and she just sits there in complete misery. You feel awful and you can feel her rain cloud spreading to you. Pro tip, if you know you're at a chick-flic or sad movie, find the most masculine guy there and sit near him. One, you'll avoid tears. And two, if he starts crying, it's karma for going off of gender norms. 5. Movie Previews God forbid you arrive to the movie on time. The movie previews are always at least 15-30 mins long. I feel like I need an intermission after them because they extend far longer than need be. It's genius marketing really regardless if I'm a fan or not. I will admit some movie previews are enticing and make me more inclined to go see a movie however most of the time you're watching a preview for a movie that won't debut for another year and a half. No thanks. 6. Irrational Fears (Yet So Rational) Is. There. A. Shooter. Among. Us. 7. Bad Seats You decided to go to the premiere which you knew was stupid but also extremely fun at the same time. You've waited in line to get a ticket for twenty minutes and you still arrive in the theater a half hour before they even begin previews. Yet, the theater is packed. Of course there's plenty of single seats scattered throughout but no one is kind enough to scoot down one. So you and your friends have to go to the front section which might as well be labeled as IMAX seats because you have to look up the entire time. Bad seats ruin movie theaters. You can't be too close but too far away. Railings are a gift from God. Also, don't steal my cupholder. 8. That random guy that screams right before something jumps out... I HATE YOU. 9. People Who Talk Is it really necessary to talk about what happened during your day while the movie is playing? NO. There's this really cool concept called going to dinner AND a movie, emphasizing on the dinner part here. Save conversations for everywhere outside of the four walls that make up the movie theater. Also, stop giving a play by play. You don't need to give your opinion or ask questions DURING the movie. You can do that all after; I promise it won't kill you. 10. Cell Phones Putting your phone to the lowest brightness does not make you a secret ninja. Turn it off.
10 Times your favorite stars looked exactly like anime characters
For me and most other Korean addicts that I know, there was a time when I fangirled over anime characters way more than I did any real human being, until I realized that real-life anime characters were in K-pop and K-drama all along. In honor of this amazing relation in fandoms, this article presents ten times some of our favorite idols looked exactly like classic anime characters. (**This is an article posted on the Dramafever FB page. It was too good to pass up so I had to add it here.**) 1.) Lee Min Ki and L from Death Note Every time I see Lee Min Ki, I can't help but be reminded of L, even when he's playing quirky characters like Byun Hee (Shut Up Flower Boy Band). They both have this sort of dark, dominating image to them, especially when it comes to their eyes, but despite their intimidating demeanor, you can't help but love the two. Plus don't you just love the idea of Lee Min Ki playing a dark genius detective? 2.) Former EXO-Member Tao and Cloud from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Yes, I realize that Final Fantasy is originally one of the biggest gaming franchises out there, but they also made and animated movie that featured Cloud as the main character, so most of my comparisons are based off of the movie, not the classic game. That aside, don't they both look so much alike? They got the hair, the lips, the "I don't care" sunglasses/goggles, even the general vibe they give off is similar. I love it when Tao has the whole bad boy concept, but this took it to a whole different level of awesome for me. 3.) BIGBANG's G-Dragon and Gaara from Naruto Honestly, no one can rock Gaara's hair color and thick eyeliner as well as G-Dragon can. Enough said. 4.) BTS's V and Kaneki Ken from Tokyo Ghoul There are so many things that are visually similar between these two. They both have masculine yet cute facial features that are highlighted by white hair, my personal favorite hair color on V. These features include their jawline, nose, and their darker colored eyes. I also like how they both are wearing the same colored shirt in this image. It just makes the contrast pop out all the more. 5.) Park Shin Hye and Haruhi Fujioka from Ouran High School Host Club One of my favorite looks on the always beautiful Park Shin Hye was when she was playing Go Mi Nam in You're Beautiful, and her cross-dressing mishaps reminded me a lot of those from Ouran High School Host Club. After re-watching the series for the millionth time, I couldn't help but notice how similar the two females looked despite having totally different reasons for their situations. They both look really good in that boyish style, but still manage to maintain an innocent, feminine charm that you can't help but love. Just an example of the perfect balance between the two. 6.) Super Junior's Eunhyuk and Luffy from One Piece Look at these two dorks with their toothy closed-eye smiles! They just scream adorable, don't they? I've always thought that Eunhyuk had aspects Luffy's boyish look and spirit, but seeing it highlighted so well in this picture just makes these goofy boys seem even more alike then I thought. I like how these two look in general, but the icing on the cake? How awesome Eunhyuk looks in a straw hat. 7.) IU and Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura IU and Sakura are similar in more ways than one in this instance. Not only do these two look have absolutely adorable and similar facial features, but both of these girls are also the epitome talent. While Sakura is good at everything from rollerblading to cooking, IU is the ultimate triple threat idol by being amazing at singing, dancing, and acting (which can be seen by her performances in Dream High and Producer). Also who wouldn't love to see IU in all of Sakura's elaborate outfits? 8.) Rain and Grey Fullbuster from Fairy Tail Hold on to your hats, ladies — these two are the perfect example of Korean idols and anime characters looking absolutely perfect . Both of these boys have similar appearances from their dark hair to their crosses and jeans, but also abs to absolutely die for. Grey Fullbuster almost never wears a shirt, and Rain, for the sake of all his adoring fans, shouldn't even own a shirt, so these two lady-killers are almost one and the same. Plus, it would be so cool to see Rain with ice powers. 9.) Jang Geun Suk and William T. Spears from Black Butler Ahhh...Jang Geun Suk's look from You're Beautiful, both my favorite and least favorite style for him. Not only did the his whole slicked-back hair and tuxedo look remind me of a butler, but specifically one butler in particular: William T. Spears. These two look eerily similar in this scene except for one tiny detail, that of course being William's trademark glasses, but add the glasses and you have the perfect casting choice for a demon butler. 10.) BTS's Rap Monster and Sailor Moon Last, but not least, my personal favorite pair-up, Rap Monster and Sailor Moon. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the closest-looking comparison of this entire list. Every thing from the hair and make-up to the sailor fukku is perfect. Plus, Rap Monster's body shape is definitely on point for this cosplay.
How Many Bottles of Wine Did They Drink in: The Dreamers
I recently saw a post about movies that are infinitely sexier than 50 Shades of Grey (which no, I have not seen) and The Dreamers was at the top of the list. I had seen this movie a few years ago and it didn't leave much of an impression on me so I decided to revisit it in case I missed some big plot point that made the movie spectacular. I liked the story much more than I did when I first watched it but it still is not anything close to a favorite film. The Characters We only really get to meet a handful of characters in this story, with nearly the entire film taking place in one house with the three main characters. Obviously I liked Matthew from the very moment he said "I'm from San Diego." An exchange student in Paris who is obsessed with film, he was anti-war pro-art and just a genuinely innocent, level-headed kid. Then he met the quirky yet charming Isabelle who is a fellow film buff. She is known to imitate scenes from movies and demand that you guess the film or face her wrath. Then we have Theo, Isabelle's fraternal twin brother who is a total pill and didn't win me over even after the second watch. Throughout the film I was waiting for someone to call the three of them out on the fact that they do nothing. Seriously, nothing. They sit around, drink a lot of wine, talk about movies, and then when the money runs out they call their parents to wire them more money. They were only consuming art, never trying to give anything back. Luckily though, near the end of the film, Matthew calls out Theo on the fact that he is all theory without any action. The self-described Maoist is actually just a bored rich kid. I didn't fall in love with any of the characters, but Matthew's random words of wisdom helped save the film. The Story You know, I'm not really all that sure what happens in this story. The back drop is the 1968 Paris riots, when students took to the streets to demand a political and social reevaluation of French society with the use of riots and propaganda. BUT all we really saw was three kids lounging around or occasionally, running around (see below), having sex, and talking about old films. The more I think about it though, the more I think that the point was actually not to tell a story, but to capture a mood. And that, Bertolucci did perfectly. Everything Else The soundtrack is fantastic, as are the film references. It made me was to watch black and white films, drink wine, and move to (not 1968) Paris. Overall, it is worth a watch but only on a day when you're feeling really lethargic.
Who is HIGHLIGHT???
Hey guys. So for a while now there has been talk about Highlight debuting. Most people have no idea who highlight is, how many members are in the group, their ages, what they look like etc. One things for certain............people have been passing on Legendary rookie group..........so you gotta wonder. How good is this group? What do they sound like? Do I know them?..................Well maybe.................possibly...............................ummmmmmmm YES! Do these five guys look familiar?

A sixth member..............Yes there was. Jang Hyunseung. Also apart of the duo Troublemaker. -------------------------- QUICK RUN THROUGH Sadly that sixth member of Beast departed and the explanation we got was differences in music ideas or so. Shortly after this the contracts for all six Beast members and Cube expired. This gave way to other possibilities and the remaining members decided to leave Cube and start their own label. (Around Us) Jang Hyunseung decided to stay and do another contract with Cube. Now that the five had left there was still an issue with the Beast name. Cube had the rights to that name for more years meaning the boys could not promote under that name since they had left Cube. After intense thinking and talking back and forth with Cube the boys decided to give up on the Beast name for the moment and promote under a new name........dundundunduuuuun HIGHLIGHT was born. This name is a song title from the past album. Alrighty now to introduce you to each member of HIGHLIGHT. DO YOU KNOW THEM? Well here are the links for the cards that lead to each member.

Korean Movie Club: Silenced
Trigger warning: Physical and sexual abuse of minors. The plot: Kang In-ho (Gong Yoo) is a new art teacher at Benevolence Academy, a deaf school for children (Based on the real-life Gwangju Inhwa School). He's excited to teach his new students, but they all seem afraid of him and even scared. In-ho does not give up, and eventually the students start to open up to him - and tell him horrifying things. The children are being physically and sexually abused by their teachers. When he decides to fight for the children’s rights and expose the crimes being committed at the school, he soon realizes the school’s principal and teachers, and even the police, prosecutors and churches in the community are actually trying to cover up the truth According to its summary: It is based on actual events that took place at Gwangju Inhwa School for the hearing-impaired, where young deaf students were the victims of repeated sexual assaults by faculty members over a period of five years in the early 2000s The aftermath: The film looks at both the crimes, as well as the legal battle that followed. It showed the true story that the teachers who ABUSED THEIR STUDENTS were let off with minimal punishment. The nation was pissed. After its release, there was so much outrage from the citizens who watched the film, that the investigations were reopened. The demand for legislative reform reached all the way to the National Assembly, where a revised bill, dubbed the Dogani Bill, was passed in late October 2011 to abolish the limitations for sex crimes against minors and the disabled. I haven't seen it yet and will need to be emotionally ready, but I do want to see a film that sparked such a big change in Korea! You can watch it here on Dramanice. Is anyone else interested or has seen it before?
My SDAFF Internship Collection: Weeks 2 & 3 - The Calm Before The Storm!
Things have really begun picking up at the Pac-Arts office as we get closer and closer to the the San Diego Asian Film Festival. Scheduled guests are finalizing their appearances, 'To Be Announced' film slots are beginning to be filled by last minute titles, and at the office, we are beginning to receive items we've special ordered for the gala and various parties spanning the festival. Wine, check. Beer, check. And next week, the huge boxes of shrimp chips from the local Korean grocery store. (Shrimp chips + Good movies = Combination of Champions.) Learning more and more about theater operations has given me more confidence that I'll be able to manage the different theaters when the time comes. A majority of film festivals have their own standard of ticketing operations used to track and process ticketing orders similar to a box office. Last week, I was taught all about how to sell tickets on-site and how we keep track of seats sold and tickets reserved, and I'm excited to help train the other house managers and operations volunteers as we get closer to the event. The hard work has been really rewarding, especially for a short-term intern like me. It has completely steepened my learning curve, a result of putting the advice and experience of the staff around me into constant action as I complete more and more planning projects. It also helped me really get to know the people I share my office with. (A highlight of last week was recording a short video of all of us wearing silly masks, hats, and little props and dancing to a Bollywood soundtrack to thank our 10,000+ Facebook followers!) I'm going to miss them all so much when my internship comes to a close, and I look forward to the memories we'll make together at this year's SDAFF. In the meantime, I can already feel tensions starting to rise as we move into our final week of preparations before the festival. I left the office Friday night with a bit of reluctance, knowing that the next time I returned, we would officially be in the belly of the beast. Am I nervous? Yeah, a little bit. Am I scared? Yeah, a little bit there too. But am I excited? Oh, tremendously. It's about to get real, folks.
