Netflix: Death Note. The long overdue post.

So it’s been almost a year since the Netflix movie Death Note was released. I should have written this post months ago, but I’m here now, so let’s get on with it.

Firstly, let me speak objectively. From a production point of view, it’s a very good film. The cinematography is notably great, and since it’s an adaptation (rolling my eyes), I have to concede that the direction isn’t bad. And from a non-anime watcher point of view, it’s awesome, impressive, riveting, even brilliant (I know this because my non-anime watcher friends told me)! But, from the perspective of an anime watcher such as myself, Continue reading “Netflix: Death Note.

Shingeki no Kyojin Season Three. I’m dead.

Okay, so Shingeki no Kyojin season three has landed upon us, and I cannot begin to describe the horrors I have witnessed, and we’ve only got episode one! Guys, it updated yesterday (YESTERDAY!!!), and the shakage is already too much! It’s lit, I tell you! And yes, I know I said that I would never again watch anime like a streamer, but I can’t back out now. I’ll die if I stop watching too suddenly. I can’t afford to act rashly. I must just keep watching the weekly updates (for the good of my health). I didn’t tell you how season two ended. Without spoiling it, I’ll say it was terrible Continue reading “Shingeki no Kyojin Season Three. I’m dead.”

The UNposted Post 

Some honest words.

Mathunzi Macdonald

There are roughly 30 (thirty) posts uncomfortably sitting in the drafts folder of Mathunzi Macdonald’s personal blog account. Ridiculous?

There are things I have been unable to speak openly about for fear of ridicule and possible public shame. There are topics I realized I had very little interest in and would be posting, well for the sake of posting. There are things I could have shared that had the potential to label me a complete “sham” as they would simply be depicting my “social media appropriate life”.

The launch of my website http://www.mathunzi.com came with a promise of regular blog posts about everything Mathunzi. I assured friends and family that I was ready to wear my scars proudly and share in my “Johannesburg City Life” and all the various things that I do work wise and in my leisure time. What I did not anticipate was yet another dramatic twist…

Onew is innocent!

There are so many other things I could be writing about because it’s a really trying year! Ji Chang Wook has gone to army, Kim Woo Bin is sick, Song Joong Ki is getting married, Seo In Guk was sent home from army after just 4 days!!!! But the thing that’s bothering me to the nth degree is this whole Onew saga! I have to say something today!!!! I can’t just stay quiet. I will be upfront and say from the get go that Onew and Taemin are my favourite members of SHINee, but that doesn’t inform my stance. I may not know the members personally, and I may have never met them, but being a SHINee fan, I just can’t believe that Onew would commit such a crime. And any other SHINee fan would agree with that sentiment. That aside, let’s just consider the actual facts of the incident in question. I’ll lay it out for those reading this who may not know; Onew, SHINee’s amazeballs leader, has been accused of sexual harassment at a club in Gangnam on August 12th. Continue reading “Onew is innocent!”

Fabricated City (조작된 도시): My Take.

I’m back, and as promised, I’ll be talking about Fabricated City today. But before you get upset with me, I’ll let up a little on talking about Ji Chang Wook after Empress Ki (please bear with me a little longer…XD).

So this movie is very smart and plays on your sense of justice. You have a guy (Ji Chang Wook) wrongfully accused and sentenced to life imprisonment, charged with Continue reading “Fabricated City (조작된 도시): My Take.”

Suspicious Partner (수상한 파트너): My Take.

Hi again. Okay, so Suspicious Partner finally wrapped up last week, and I’m in tears because this means Ji Chang Wook if leaving for army real soon. On the 14th of August, to be precise! So it’ll be a while before we see him again, but I hope he enjoys his enlistment and returns to us with more to show. I don’t really know what I’m trying to say, but yeah… Anyway, moving on to why we’re here; Suspicious Partner concluded last week. And, I said I might write about it, so here we are.

Anyway, moving on to why we’re here; Suspicious Partner concluded last week, and Continue reading “Suspicious Partner (수상한 파트너): My Take.”
