I didn’t like The Student Prince. It didn’t give me “all the feels” and the only good parts were at the beginning for me. Yes, it was well written, but the plot seemed to skip a bit here and there like, and it threw me off. There were characters that were important to decisions Arthur and Merlin made that we could have seen a little bit more of, such as Kay. I did like that it showed Kay defending Arthur even after Merlin thought the guy was a git, but seeing just a little bit more of him throughout the story would have been amazing.
I don’t know, I just didn’t get into completely. It was alright, but it doesn’t make me forget that every other fanfic I read isn’t TSP. It just doesn’t appeal to me. It isn’t the AU Modern, because I am very found of AU Modern.
So, today I sawExtremely Loud & Incredibly Close. I am not big on movies that make me cry; I am not big on such things that deeply and gravely show the perspective of people who should indeed get more stories told about. I am a fantasy/ action/ adventure movie type of girl all the way. But, this movie spoke to me. I can write in numbers how this plot spoke to me, the emotions that Thomas Horn portrays through his character Oskar is utterly brilliant that chills ran up and down my spine the whole two hours and nine minutes. Though I have yet to read the book, I assume that the adaption is just as excellent. The movie, along with the book, will be a classic story in years to come about growing up in a way that many people understand, but is still so highly underrated. It is a heartbreakingly inspirational story, and for the fangirl side of me, it gave me all the feels.
