After working weekdays, it was finally weekend and I could enjoy my free time with my dear. After being sure about meeting we had to decide upon what to do and where to go but we couldn’t decide anything, so we met up without any plans and had our meal at a Japanese restaurant. After the meal we searched what movies are up nowadays and a familiar name was on there, Mary Shelley.
We learned about about her in our literature class, not only her but also her husband Percy Shelley, their dear friend Lord Byron and Polidori. Knowing that they all had outstanding ideas and “infamous” personalities for their time we decided to see that movie.
As such movies aren’t popular in Turkey, we had to go to a specific cinema theater which usually shows this kind of movies. The place was quiet as usual and wasn’t crowded at all which is actually great for us but not for the theater. We paid 30 liras for the tickets which converts into 6 dollars with today’s currency.
After we got into the theater we saw only 2 advertisements and then the movie started right away which usually don’t happen in other theaters in Turkey. You usually pay more than 30 liras and watch almost 20 minutes of advertisements in cinema theaters.
As the movie started I confused with the dress of Mary, which seemed really modern to me that I actually thought that scene was from the present day but when I saw rest of her clothes, I understood that it was the old times. I was always interested in history and historical places have never failed to amaze me regardless of how many times I have seen them. So, when I saw the old England, its streets, its buildings, its people I was already amazed by the scenery.
I don’t want to go in detail but I would like to express my opinions over the movie and the Mary Shelley in general.
- The movie was always interesting to watch, it locked my eyes to the screen.
- The narration of the story was fine in my opinion.
- Scenery was great and it felt like I was in the old England .
- An outstanding women for both her time and present.
- An Intelligence forged by overwhelming emotions.
- A true feminist
After watching the movie I immediately wanted to buy the book so I did and currently reading it and I would definitely recommend it. I rate it 8/10
Thank you reading and leaving your time!
Since beginning of the humanity, humankind thought of only two places to go afterlife. One was said to be the paradise where everyone unconditionally happy and their joy never ends and in the other one the sinners face up to the eternal torment which is hell. Most people are satisfied with the idea of classical paradise and hell, that includes me as well but as I am wanted write my own paradise I will bestow my thoughts upon you, my dear reader.
After the judgment the people who are awarded with the paradise will be given two choices. One of the choices will be living the paradise in which they can taste the eternal joy without any boredom with their loved ones. There shall be limitless food, limitless entertainment and limitless wishes to be granted to them. The other choice is being a tormentor in the hell, the people who will choose this option will be reanimated into Dread Tormentors. Their flesh will be immune to the any harm, their blood will be converted into ice and wrath of the creator will be bestowed upon them as a tool of torment for the sinners in the hell. They will look 26 years old, their eyes will glow blue of the power inside them, their flesh will be pale as a person who has never been exposed to any light, their strength will be beyond comprehension with the other creatures and the source of their joy will be the agony of the sinners in the hell. Their paradise will be their own mind.
The hell will be filled with blue flames which will not only burn the sinners bodies but also their souls which will result in the almost obliteration of their souls. This will not only give the sinners hope of extinction but will also take it from them at the peak of obliteration. The ground will be icy and grasping, burning the sinners bodies with immense cold. The air will be icy winds which will freeze the sinners internal organs and break them inside their bodies. There will be no light in hell, the only things which will illuminate there will be the Tormentor Angels and Dread Tormentors, so that the sinners will be filled with dread before they get tormented personally. The sinners bodies will regenerate constantly but this will not be painless process for them, they will feel each cell forming in their bodies and being obliterated over and over again continuing to the eternity.
When the Dread Tormentors walk in the hell, all the angels will bow before them, the blue flames will come to life and yell out their names throughout the whole hell. As they walk, the sinners will try to hide and escape from them but the icy grip of the ground will pull them to the Dread Tormentors. When they face to the Dread Tormentors, their minds will be filled all the negative emotions possible and their dread will feed joy of the Dread Tormentors which will give them pleasure beyond comprehension that will make them hungry for more of it which will motivate them to torment more and enjoy more.
