First Impressions & Unfiltered Thoughts: Devilish Joy

I think I’ve finally found a companion to Still 17! MiataMama and I decided to give Devilish Joy a whirl after hearing it described as being somewhat like 50 First Dates. Thankfully, I don’t spy anyone like Rob Schneider in this one (not a knock on the man himself — his character was just awful in that movie).

The amnesia is the ONLY thing that ties the two together.  Continue reading

My ID is Gangnam Beauty: First Impressions and Unfiltered Thoughts

It is a common trope throughout storytelling: the ugly duckling becomes a beautiful swan. American movies in the 80s certainly used this approach a lot, geeky guy takes off his glasses and gets some new clothes and suddenly…hot, hot, hot. Overlooked girl gets her hair cut and styled and tosses her glasses (note the glasses theme here) and suddenly…instant popularity. My ID is Gangnam Beauty takes this idea, but instead of a simple makeover, a young girl completely transforms herself through plastic surgery. Reality creeps in, however, when it becomes clear that surgery cannot immediately transform a timid personality or erase the years of pain experienced. In fact, even beautiful people can get bullied. Read on to discover our first impressions and unfiltered thoughts about My ID is Gangnam Beauty. Continue reading
