Dear Tumblr,
I just got around to seeing this movie, despite the fact that it did not get a wide-release.
Find it and watch it.
Believe me when I say, this film is in the same league of sci-fi/speculative film classics as Bladerunner and Children of Men.
This.
Movie.
Should have a HUGE fandom.
It deals with issues like class, caste-systems, oppression, and the nature of humanity in a way mainstream films like The Hunger Games never could.
Let me tell you a story about the film-maker Joon-Ho Bong. Some years back, I had the privilege of attending a screening of one his films and the man happened to be there. At that time, he’d already gotten some notice for making The Host, another awesome film that allegorizes heavy issues in humanity.
So, he does the q&a at the end and someone asks him why he’s never produced a Hollywood movie.
…And he says, paraphrasing; that Hollywood would never let him make the kind of movies he’d like.  He’d have to hire an all-white cast and the actors would have to fit a certain aesthetic. They couldn’t be non-white, older than twenty-five, or non-thin…especially actresses.
He said, it’s not worth selling out, when he can make the kinds of movies he wants in South Korea.
…And then he makes this.
I’d love to spoil it for you, but suffice it say it was, as all good speculative sci-fi is, very effecting for me.
Again, I beg you PLEASE SEE THIS MOVIE.
And if you need more convincing??
Your faves are in it:  Octavia Spencer aka the above flawless actress in the poster, Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris and the father/daughter pair from The Host, Kang-So Hung and Ah-Sung Ko (which had me thinking AU!).
Now, I shall commence spamming my tumblr with Snowpiercer reblogs…
Apologies ahead of time.

mmm the host was great i’d love to see this.

ok, i’m in.

I’m sold

the host is one of my favorite movies ever.  i am definitely watching this immediately.


Reblog so I’ll remember for later

weresnark tagged me in this thingy: say 5 nice things about yourself, post publicly, then pass on to 10 of your favorite followers. (<3) K let’s go.

  1. I have eyes worthy of fanfiction. They are glorious. I love my eyes.
  2. My kanji ability has gotten to the point where I can translate medical…
Aaaah I tried doing this once before and it didn’t go well. Also I think
duskky-connoissuer-of-everything
tagged me in something recently and I forgot to do it?


Five nice things…

I cook pretty well (except when I don’t) and I’m pretty good at adapting recipes to make them vegan without being expensive or gross.
I used to be really strong, I liked that about myself.
For all of my roughness of personality, I do genuinely avoid hurting people (and other critters) as much as possible, which I think is good.
I’m tall?
I’m doing a really good job of learning how to talk about things instead of getting upset and hiding it.

I will now inflict this meme on ten unsuspecting bystanders: femmesaxifrage, skysquids, pixiechicksderbygirl, rocks-in-riots, pipdreams, eatingsoapboxes, chthonic-cassandra, airspaniel, janus-rising, rockemsockemrocket.
So
alder-knight
tagged me in this thing and I guess that means I have to say 5 nice things about myself. I’m not entirely sure there are 5 nice things about me. -I prefer the company of animals to that of humans, but I try not to let the humans know that. -I try to extend the benefit of the doubt and patience to most people (except for cops and racists) -I like meeting new people and experiencing new things. -I try to distance myself from a lot of situations so as to not react with intentional malice but give myself time to process why I’m upset and seek a valid resolution. -I’ve never actually killed anyone, though the urge may be strong. So I guess I’m supposed to tag 10 others to inflict this upon? Apologies in advance.

eatingsoapboxes you’re a such a grouch and i love it<3

  1. i’m a good listener
  2. i’m curious about everything and i think that makes it really easy for me to relate to people and learn new things
  3. once i’ve, like, “bonded” with someone i try to be really unconditional in my love of them, because i think people deserve it
  4. i am extremely good at taking care of animals, especially baby animals
  5. i’m really smart and funny

okay i’m going to tag these ten people: yeastbaeddel theworstbaeddel ptarasaur mammaryowl slytherinandgetcomfortable poxglove awhooshingsound alexispointy sunkissedsigh vkvsamv

AH! Both of you? Why?

1. I’m an awful person, but apparently people like me and want me to be happy anyway.

2. I’m apparently supermom, even though I’m not actually anyone’s mom (although there is one person out there with the rights to call me such), because I’m useful in crises.

3. I’m an excellent cuddler.

4. I’m good at some things, and my friends like to remind me about them, even when I can’t manage to believe them.

5. A whole bunch of people think I’m cool or something, so I must be doing something right.

Inflicting self-appreciation on others (I’ll pick some people who haven’t already been asked, I think): yetanotherbaeddelblog poxglove sankekorafi cuddlejoy hope-for-the-worst 

This is the second one, I don’t think I have ten more people to tag!

1. If necessary, I would take up arms on a friend’s behalf. Even if they were just my arms, because I know a very good chokehold.

2. I would definitely win a king crab eating contest.

3. I do one of the best stink eyes I know of, outside of the late kitty Indigo.

4. I can chop wood for five straight hours.

5. I look exactly like my mom.

Tagging: rhymesfordimes awhooshingsound headcrabzombies eatingsoapboxes

Also a couple people in the tags, because for some reason tumblr won’t let me tag in the post?

Wow I didn’t know you could be tagged in things on tumblr? I am flattered to get tagged in something so I will comply: 1. I am good at connecting/bonding with other people 2. Even though I am a lazy couch potato I got into a martial art that is really cool 3. I work in children’s mental health and I think that is awesome 4. I am good at playing music and I attempt singing as needed 5. My eyes are pretty let’s be real Ok now I will try tagging too: houserabbit ; tijolo ; strangeodds ; yourdogdoesdrugs ; megafitman
