Movies I Watched: Brother of the Year, Before I Go To Sleep, Emma., Byzantium, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Obviously, I have been watching so many movies these days so yes, another movies I watched post!

Brother of the Year (2018)

Starring: Sunny Suwanmethanont, Urassaya Sperbund, Nichkhun

I’ve been meaning to watch this movie for a long time, but only remembered to do so recently. I spent the whole movie getting annoyed at the older brother – Chut, because I can totally relate to that. I have two brothers, a younger brother whom I actually like and feel like I can depend on and an older brother, whom I’m really not in good terms with. But man, that ending. I found myself crying and I had a really terrible headache after. I had to close my laptop after watching this movie and sleep because I had a really bad headache from all that crying. That scene was so impactful and they didn’t even need to say a lot. Seriously!!! That speaks volume about families, you don’t really need to talk things out, it just fixes itself, you know? I wish I’m as forgiving as Jane though. At this point, I don’t think I am ready to forgive.

Before I Go To Sleep (2014)

Starring: Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth, Mark Strong

Think 50 First Dates meets Netflix’s Secret Obsession. I wish I didn’t watch that awful Netlix film because this was really predictable for me. If I am amnesiac and I wake up one morning, then Colin Firth claims to be my husband, I will probably not question it. LOL. But yeah, this is not a romantic movie so you should actually be scared. This one is pretty mediocre, despite the big names in the cast. The only thing I liked about the movie is that I don’t think I have ever seen Colin Firth play a character like this. Oh, let me correct that – two things: A movie starring both Colin Firth and Mark Strong is so awesome. I love them both!

Emma. (2020)

Starring: Anya Taylor-Joy, Johnny Flynn, Mia Goth, Bill Nighy

I attempted to watch this movie a few months ago, but I was doing something else at the time – I was probably working or writing something – so I wasn’t really focused on the movie. I couldn’t really get into it, so I stopped playing. I finally got to revisit in a few days ago when I didn’t work, because I was feeling under the weather.

It was really slow in the beginning (which I expected), but this was actually super cute! I mean, the build up in the beginning was necessary – to show how Emma likes to match make and meddle with other people’s love lives. And I found myself tearing up towards the end because of Emma and Harriet’s friendship! I haven’t seen any other version of Emma, other than Clueless (LOL) but I am pretty aware of what it is all about. The dialogues were really good and man, the clothes and the hats and the scenes at their houses. I suddenly want to buy a vintage floral wallpaper and deck my walls with it!

Man, that sexual tension between Mr. Knightley and Emma! That scene after the dance, ughhhh, so good! I actually thought that Frank Churchill would play a more important character because he kept being mentioned in the beginning before he appeared halfway through the movie, but no. Not too long after he appears, we started getting these Emma – Knightley moments that I didn’t even bother with that dude.

I even liked Harriet and Mr. Martin! I love that little moment at the end when they kissed by the wall after Harriet told Emma that they are engaged. So cute! And Bill Nighy!! I freaking love him! I just love him and his screens of different heights. HAHAHA!

I had a moment of stupidity because when that scene at the picnic happened, I was confused between Miss Taylor / Mrs Weston and Miss Bates. LOL! I was like, “Why is Mr. Weston just playing that off as if Emma didn’t just insult his wife?” And then I realized that it’s a different character. LOL.

Anyway, I love it so much and will watch it again! 🙂

Byzantium (2012)

Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arterton, Sam RIley, Jonny Lee Miller, Caleb Landry Jones

This was a really good vampire movie. Also, I love both Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan. The movie is about a mother and daughter who are on the run from other vampires. The storytelling is excellent, I love how they were shifting from present to the different years of Clara and Eleanor’s lives. Great acting by both main and supporting cast. I don’t think I’ve seen Caleb Landry Jones before, but yes, he could definitely pass as a vampire as well. By the way, this is from the same director as Interview with the Vampire so you know it’s going to be good. It’s one of the best vampire films I’ve seen. Watch this!

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019)

Featuring the voices of Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, and F. Murray Abraham

I can’t believe I waited this long to finish this – I had to restart it because I totally forgot wat it was about. Anyway, I loved it and it’s definitely a good ending to the How To Train Your Dragon series. When Light Fury saved both Toothless and Hiccup – I almost cried. LOL. That was such a touching scene!

This is so funny to me though! I had to Google it right after and it’s so funny that there’s an actual meme about it HAHAHAHA

So there you have it, the third installment of movies I watched. And I think this was a pretty good list because I loved 4/5 of them! I am actually running out of movies to watch, I literally rewatched Big Hero 6 last weekend and was crying before it was even noon. Not sorry though – I love that movie!
