By the way, I have been tagged at least thrice to do this over the month. I am not exactly sure which one I am supposed to do so why not all of them? That's a lot for me but it just means more suggestions for you readers! The best of all, I can tag 20 other creators since we're supposed to tag 5 person for each challenge? Hehe. Let's get this going for another month!
A Movie That Made Me Cry (Like An Idiot)
Gosh, this is difficult as there are so many heartbreaking movies out there and most of the time I hold myself from crying. Nonetheless, I do know an anime movie that made me cry like an idiot. Anohana the Movie: The Flower We Saw That Day (2013) is its title; it is about love and friendship between childhood friends... Not going to spoil it for you if you're going to see it but I guess I cried because I could feel them! (Review)
Nerd's Selection: Motivational Movie!
This is another one that is difficult because there are so many. I know one of the most frequent, recent assumption about me is that I do not watch anything other than animation (save that story another time) but honestly, animation is not my biggest strength and it's not all I know. So for this I am going to suggest a recent one that I've seen, San Andreas (2015)! How could a disaster movie be motivational you ask? Well, it certainly can motivate others, especially when you're into filmmaking and humanity!
Awkward Family Movies...Why Do They Even Exist?
If you need awkward movies to disgust your family (even if they won't understand Cantonese) try "new" Hong Kong comedy movies... It just so sad that most of the ones I know are some of the recent Hong Kong movies. I don't remember their titles but I do think they are not worth mentioning. I know sex sells but the way they do it is super repulsive and I lost respect to most of them... The only ones that would made me go to the theatre these day are wuxia or those based off ancient/pre-modern Chinese. If you like Chinese culture and are looking for latest Chinese films, try those produced from other parts of China.
A Movie I've Watched Over And Over?
Unfortunately I do not have the luxury to watch anything over and over again, don't even say the time to watch all the new releases... So, I am going to mention a few Disney movies that I could remember from my early years memories that it's always playing on the TV while I was doing things I don't remember. Here they are! (I am listing three because I was too young to remember which was replayed the most!)
- Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
- The Aristocats (1970)
- Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Nerd's Selection: A Movie To Pass On To My Kids!
It would be a non-narrative documentary film with superb cinematography that most children and adults alike regardless of era may not even bother to watch unless someone show it to them; Baraka (1992). Study about it yourself.

A Show I Binged Watched In One Sitting
I think I've never done that as I usually watch the first or scheduled airing, daily or weekly. If it's anime, I guess there are a few when I was in school. The last one would be Attack on Titan (2013) after my brothers watch them and they made me want to watch it too. Pardon me, I am more of a movie girl than TV girl!
A Show I'm Embarrassed To Admit I've Never Seen
To be honest, there is none.
A Show I Wasn't Allowed To Watch as a Kid, But Did Anyway!
Come to think of it, my parents have never stopped me from watching anything! When I was younger, they would just block my eyes if there are any kissing scenes and most of the entertainment I am exposed to are generally suitable for family anyway. If I have to choose one, I guess it is South Park because they cuss a lot!
A Show I've Watched Again And Again
Like I have mentioned earlier, I simply do not have the luxury to watch anything again and again... But I guess it's Dragon Ball GT (1996-1998), since I have seen it at least three times to date!
A Show I'm Embarrassingly Obsessed With.
True Blood (2008–2014) ... Yes, that means all 7 seasons of them even though I was underage (not supposed to see it) when I first saw it on HBO. I can't believe I've watched them all!
Best #5DayTVChallenge Suggestion!
Recommend a 90s Comedy (TV or Movie)
Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction (1994) - It's a black comedy crime film with non-liner storyline that will amaze you. Because it's just so awesome, it has been ranked as one of the best films in the world!
Recommend a Cult Movie
Stephen Chow's Kung Fu Hustle (2004) - It's a hilarious martial art slapstick film from Hong Kong and this is easily one of the best Hong Kong films from 2000s!
Recommend a TV Series That Ended Before its Time
Hiro Mashima's Rave Master (2001-2002) - Before Fairy Tail, there is this cool anime series on TV but I have no idea why it's discontinued! I have read the manga and it's such a waste that no one intend to revive it...
Recommend a Movie That Got Critically Panned
I have never cared about critics before because there is no standard and anyone can be a critic. So, I don't know if there is a movie that I like and is critically panned. I always watch what I want and decide whether it's really good or bad to recommend it to others. I have nothing against movie critics as they keep the movie industry on but just in case anyone's angry with my statement; I don't care about trailers too. Like critics, trailers have no standards and they are usually what their bosses want us to see, not the actual reflection of the movie. Seriously, nothing can affect what I want to watch or do not want to watch.
Recommend a Comic Book Movie (that isn't Marvel or DC!)
Help. I am not a comic book expert. Since manga is also known as Japanese comic books... Crayon Shin-chan: The Secret Treasure of Buri Buri Kingdom (1994)? (If anime adapted from manga is allowed and if you need more, I can give you another hundred because there are so many!)
Best #5DayRecommendationChallenge Suggestion!
Game That Brings On Gamer Rage
I have stopped being a casual gamer long time ago until the Pokémon Shuffle was released on mobile last month! It's making me frustrated because it's making me to spend my precious time playing it yet I have been stuck at level 120 (Mega Glalie) forever. I couldn't catch the event Legendary Pokémon Groudon as well; even though I have have caught many others at <10% rate first try and wasted so much virtual coins to increase the capture rate! Sad.
Best Multiplayer Game
I think Mario Franchise has the best multiplayer games! My favorite would be New Super Mario Bros. 2 and I think Mario Kart is the best to play with friends and family! I am terrible at it but it's a lot of fun!
Longest Binge On One Game
I don't play a lot of games compared to many of you but I guess it's Ragnarok Online because I used to play it on and off in the past. It's a MMORPG that always make me collect all the cute headgears and pets before I gear up to explore all the maps, dungeons and quests!
Game I Haved Played Over And Over
I have no idea why I am fond of Harvest Moon games but I guess it's the Harvest Moon 3 on Gameboy Color. Honestly, I think Harvest Moon Franchise is the best definition of playing something over and over again... We're basically doing the same thing nearly everyday in-game, the same festivals every season and once we're done with all that can be done, we are just repeating the years!
Game That Should Get Re-released/Get a Sequel
Legend of Mana on PlayStation. I don't remember the story but I remember I truly enjoyed the game as a child. It's beautiful and interesting.
