Lore Olympus

“In this Webtoon, the story of Persephone and Hades is retold from a new perspective… modern day. This dramatic, somewhat addictive story involves two Greek gods, who meet by chance, and suddenly start questioning their feelings for each other. On top of that, this story features relationship struggles, looking for love, going to school for the first time, abusive situations, futures not chosen by the person it’s for, parties, and MUCH, MUCH more. I really think you will love this webtoon! For all those fans of the Kane Chronicles and the Percy Jackson and Hero of Olympus series. Or, basically anyone who has ever found any form of enjoyment out of fictional shipping and romantic fandoms will find a home in this story.”

xkcd: Unpopular Positive Opinions Movie Challenge

Unpopular Positive Opinion Movie Challenge:

Name a movie that…

  1. You genuinely like (Not “So Bad It’s Good”)
  2. Came out in your adult life post-2000
  3. Is rated below 50% on Rotten Tomatoes.

This is easy if you like horror films. For me, I’d say Metropia fits closely enough. It’s a weird, dark little animated film: Rotten Tomatoes (50%/55%), Metacritic (47), and IMDb (6.3).

And since I am making movie recommendations, let me put in the good word for The Twilight Samurai, My Sweet Pepperland, and The World of Apu. Each a beautiful love story in its own way.
