Miss Granny, and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Aunty must admit to being a Korean drama almost addict and has upgraded to being a Premium member (at $5 per month). The advantage of this is zero commercials and having access to some exclusive shows.
Some movies have been really good, and not all of them are Korean. The Chinese “Ocean Heaven” starring Jet Li was an excellent one about a father’s love for his autistic son. It can also be viewed on YouTube:
Some movies have Aunty’s favorite Korean actors and actresses but leave too many loose ends or have sub par storylines.
Miss Granny was a real winner about 2nd chances with a quirky lead actress, compelling relationships, and the complete 5 star package of being a really great movie.
To top off this weekend’s winners, Aunty would recommend “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”. It was rented for $1/week at our local library and starts off a bit haphazardly as the characters are introduced and ears adjust for British accents. The perfectly cast players and the bustle of India merge together splendidly, and Aunty has already put “The 2nd Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” on reserve at the library (after 100 others who have also requested it).
It has been a rather unproductive week for Aunty since not much has been accomplished. Kind of like stirring oatmeal. These movies were divergences that filled the space of taking it easy and allowing myself to waste time.
A waste of time, but one that engaged, entertained, and delighted. So much so, that Aunty actually stood up and clapped after each show ended.
