DROPPED: Why did I "drop" this?

Justifying why I dropped certain titles. This is more because I like having things in a list, and for you to be nosey if you want! :D

I have actually started using my hold section to indicate any watch party dramas, so my dropped list has a mix of drops and holds!

To increase the difficulty of the challenge, I'll accept any titles from here too if it's for the C5hallenge! I might need my hand held through some of them though TwT

    DROPPED
    My first dropped title, I fondly remember this! It was such torture for the never-dropper I was back then to drop this that I dropped it once, then put it back in my PTW, then dropped it again finally! This frustrated me so much it forced me to cure my NDD!

    DROPPED (unless some beloved clowns drag me into joining their millionth rewatch)

    In my notes, there's this:

    "fuck that shit until it gets better
    why? post below
    https://mydramalist.com/profile/nightnight/feeds/WkE1Vs3 "

    Tell me why I reread the post and was impressed at myself for writing that. This was a step from my NDD days and while I reluctantly dropped the titles after this, it was the revolutionary hard drop from me!


    FIRST EPISODE AND FINALE EPISODE THOUGHTS!!! I watched only the finale with dear friends here and it was an experience. I scraped together some opinions on the first and 14th episodes of this show, with no knowledge of anything which happens in between!

    Again, I refer to my notes and provide the singular line "certainly not the fing acting or story bloody hell". I actually looked to my Misssion: CLEARANCE list to see why I dropped it and I was clueless about what I was thinking when writing those notes. My theory is it was a snarky reply to the "What do you like most about it?" section when you add or edit a title, but who knows!

    I didn't feel strongly for or against it, more that I had many PTW titles and it wasn't worth speeding through this one because I care more now about how I spend my free time, which is rapidly dwindling due to revising for mocks in February(!!!) and later final exams in May/June!

    Unfortunately I didn't like the ML much, and despite appreciating Kao's performance, I couldn't push through on her and my beloved Ploypach!

    (I will die if Ploypach ever does a GL.)

    IN HOLD LIMBO
    I'm not particularly feeling this, despite enjoying the first episode. I very gently place this in my dropped and call this one a soft drop, although if I ever decide to pick something up from my dropped again, I'll know I have something alright to pick up again!

  • Twins

    6. Twins

    Pure frustration near the end at everyone because I was questioning the choices made by everyone. Having seen the final verdicts, unless feeling masochistic I doubt I'll watch this again or finish it.

    DROPPED/IN HOLD LIMBO

    Meh, I'm doubting I wish to struggle through this soon. There are so many titles on my PTW that I just gotta axe everything that doesn't rivet me for a reason. The sole reason I'd continue is to see more of Phuwin's character because he seemed like he had potential to cause chaos but nah, not bothered.

    DROPPED

    Dropped at the end of episode 9. If I'm curing my NDD, the GLs can't be an exception, even if the actresses here are awesome and I really want to support sapphic stories so we get more rep! I read spoilers on episode 10 and I think I'd be watching at 4x speed and still unhappy with everything so why not save it for an extra masochistic watch. Screaming Sapphic Saturday anyone?

    IN HOLD LIMBO/DROPPED

    I honestly don't know if I'll return to this unless I want some humour. It's nice, but I'm trying to focus on my challenges so I'll probably leave this for a while. Soft drop!

    I was in an awful mood, so I started it one night and continued the next morning. It gave good laughs and cheered me up. Then I just dropped it. Nowt against it, just didn't feel like continuing, especially with the leads.

  • My Love in the Countryside

    I loved this one so I plan to return to it at some point!!!

    I doubt I'll get back to it realistically, since I wasn't feeling it

    DROPPED - here's the reason!

    TL;DR - I cannot stand the leads, but I like the plot so I'll watch the older versions!

  • Escape from Mogadishu

    15. Escape from Mogadishu

    Korean Movie - 2021

    4.0

    DROPPED - 15 mins in.

    Bless the poor souls who had to act in this. I shouldn't look for much in this but Black Hawk Down (US, 2001) felt like it had a little more effort put into making the VERY OBVIOUSLY NOT SOMALI actors feel Somali, whether it be by the radio blasting old timey music, or even the attempts at speaking Somali, rather than just screaming loudly and hoping no one tries to listen to what gibberish they're saying. 15 minutes. and I dropped it. This is also officially my first dropped film!

  • My Strawberry Film

    16. My Strawberry Film

    Japanese Drama - 2024, 8 episodes

    HOLD - I really want to return to this one because the ratings seem really low but I think I'd like it.

    It's quite slow and seems more a coming of age than GL/BL as the Gaga Twitter account advertised, and so people seem pissed and have dragged the rating down to 6.8. But I'm determined to return to it once I feel like watching a realistic COA because I was interested in the girl in the film.
