 Roughly 800,000 children go missing every year in the United States. It’s a tragic statistic, but many of them do eventually find their way back home.

  • Netflix約定的夢幻島第一季讓人驚艷,第二季讓人討厭,電影翻拍讓我產生夢魘!

    
 約定夢幻島第一季 (Netflix) 一群年幼的孤兒在孤兒院中一起長大,大家就像家人一樣一起生活,一起玩樂,互相照顧。雖然日子過得很幸福,但是大家還是很期待自己被領養的那一天,希望出去後能跟新爸媽過上新的生活,體驗外面的世界。每次只要有同伴被領養,大夥兒難免感到失落,一來是不捨和同伴分離,二來是被領養的小孩自離開孤兒院都不曾回來探望,也不曾寄信回來,沒有一個例外。一定是外面的生活太快樂,所以才無暇保持聯絡,把大家給遺忘,孤兒院被留下的大夥兒大多都這麼想的。 諾曼,艾瑪和雷是孤兒院中最年長及最聰明的小孩。不管課堂上的測驗有多難,他們總能得滿分,自小聰穎過人。雖然三人的個性迥異,但是感情非常要好。他們的的角色設定絕對是鐵三角的組成,諾曼的冷靜思考補足雷衝動的個性及艾瑪感情用事的缺點;艾瑪的樂觀及正面彌補了雷容易放棄與諾曼過於理智的個性;雷雖行事衝動但也因有勇有謀所以也從旁幫助諾曼與艾瑪很多大大小小的瑣事。 約定的夢幻島第一季自諾曼,艾瑪及雷發現孤兒院只是飼養食用兒童的農場開始引人入勝,讓人不得不往下看。三人憑著超強邏輯及判斷能力逃離孤兒院“媽媽”的魔掌。逃離孤兒院的計畫與過程有如觀看越獄般精彩,與“媽媽”鬥智鬥力的遊戲也是讓觀眾讚嘆不已的地方。諾曼最後犧牲自己“被出貨”,讓大家有時間按照計畫逃脫,後續雖沒有鏡頭看見諾曼被鬼吃掉的鏡頭但也因此為後續的故事埋下了伏筆。 在這邊看完第一季後,我、心想這動畫很可能就此在我心中排上了前五的好作品之一。故事題材新穎,追劇時刺激感滿滿。心裏留下了很多疑問,希望第二季可以對以下的疑問做更多的解釋及描述,後續的故事絕對有很大的發揮。 01. 媽媽曾經是農場的食用兒童 約定的夢幻島中其實我最喜歡“媽媽”這個人物設定。小時候在孤兒院長大的“媽媽”也曾經是個幸福快樂的孩子。當時候的“媽媽”發現自己的好朋友被出貨,得知外面的真相時也跟諾曼,艾瑪和雷一樣想要逃跑。但不同的是逃跑的計畫裡只有她自己孤身奮戰。跑到圍牆的那頭,望出去的並不是自由,映入眼簾的僅是失望。望著無底洞的懸崖,根本無任何逃脱的機會。沒有越獄成功的媽媽只能接受眼前的事實,選擇向命運低頭。若能夠把“媽媽”內心的波瀾與痛苦在第二季中詮釋,相信“媽媽”這個角色會更加昇華。 02. 雷是媽媽的兒子 雷是極少數人中還保有胎兒與嬰兒記憶的小孩,也因為記得嬰兒時期是如何被送進孤兒院的情境,所以一直對外面的世界充滿懷疑。雷的媽媽在懷孕時很常哼曲子給他聽,所以長大後的雷也會不時哼起熟悉的旋律。某天孤兒院的“媽媽”經過,偶然聽見雷哼出的曲子,驚訝不已。誰也沒想到自己的兒子也被送進來自己的孤兒院。其實這個情節也讓我產生了很多的疑問,像是為何媽媽會懷孕?孤兒院的小孩都是怎麼出生的?為何要把雷安排在跟自己親身媽媽的孤兒院裡?為何媽媽並未因雷是自己親身兒子而去保護他?這些都是很值得第二季去琢磨的細節。 03. 諾曼的高IQ 雖說諾曼,艾瑪和雷是孤兒院中最聰明的小孩。但諾曼跟其他倆人相比IQ又是另一個層次。就連逃離計劃也是拜諾曼所賜而成功的,他就是看到別人看不到的可能性,並讓計畫可行性提高。像這樣的高IQ是天生的,或是諾曼其實是其他農場實驗下所誕生的的成功品呢? 04. 外面的世界到底有沒有人類 我一直在想外面的世界到底還有沒有人類,如果外面的世界都沒有人類,那小孩們逃出去豈不是面臨更大的危險?若有人類,他們是否眼睜睜的看著食用兒童被犧牲而無任何救援行動,寧願把無辜的小孩當成桌上的籌碼換來自己世界的太平。 約定夢幻島第二季 第一季留給觀眾的想像空間非常大,也大大推升我的求知慾。目前第二季還未於Netflix推出,但是在其他的網站已可以觀賞。看完第一季我已經迫不及待想要知道結局,所以上網看了一下原版漫畫。可能第一季給我的世界觀衝擊太大,所以看到漫畫故事中的走向與結局後,才發現高潮已經在第一季結束了。漫畫在後續的故事中變成了流水帳,結局也非常普通了無新意,讓人很容易猜透,也並未解釋我以上的疑惑。但一聽到第二季的動畫會改編及做改變時,心中還抱有期待,心想太棒了!故事可能還有機會迴轉。但是沒想到的是,第二季刪除了很多漫畫中的人物與情節,故事變得非常basic,沒有高潮迭起,跟第一季的出其不意與驚喜連連真完全是天壤之別。甚至比漫畫版還糟糕,看到現在第二季的第9集,心情還是很差。 約定夢幻島電影版 想說第二季讓人這麼失望,只好去電影院觀賞約定夢幻島真人電影版平撫一下情緒。想說第一季的故事這麼精彩,對於真人電影版也滿懷期待。真人電影版找來了很多的重量級人物,由濱邊美波主演、城檜吏、板垣李光人、北川景子、渡邊直美等人共演。導演的選角其實很讓人跌破眼鏡,找來了兩個超齡的演員飾演艾瑪與諾曼。整個畫面及演技讓人看得非常尷尬,女演員的哭戲完全沒有眼淚,感覺哭得很痛苦。諾曼的演技非常欠揍,從他嘴裡唸出的台詞,還有動作都讓人無法與動畫中的諾曼畫上等號。另外,的演技也有點用力浮誇,雖然說動畫版的修女本來就有點神經兮兮,但是在真人電影版的這種呈現讓人覺得特別違和。另外一個最讓我生氣的地方是,電影裡竟然播出諾曼出貨時的情節,並交代他並未被食用這件事。本來保有觀眾的想像才是最美的,現在導演卻一覽無遺的交代清楚。讓我覺得不得不為這部電影打上一顆星的評價。 總得來說約定夢幻島的第一季還是很值得推薦的,至於電影版完全gg,真的不用浪費時間,浪費金錢。至於要不要繼續看第二季,就看個人喜好了。最後還是希望大家看了第一季會喜歡。 喜歡這篇文章,也別忘了幫美墨備錄粉專按讚,往後可得到更多最新資訊! 延生閱讀: 01. 你就算不喜歡下西洋棋,也會喜歡的Netflix《后翼棄兵 Queen’s Gambit》【內有心得分享】 02.
