Juno Temple and Riley Keough get in on in the lesbian movie of the year! With some other mysteries going on within the scenes and…stuff going on within the scene –_-!
Blood-C The Last Dark
I haven’t watched the TV series yet (Awaiting to marathon the BDs) but I know there is great disappointment following CLAMP wherever they go so I have no expectation. it had too many a stick XYs even from the first page and since no one talked about it in the community, well, that says everything. I am only going to watch it for the other themes I love – I love the series, I love Saya, vampires, action/girls and horror so really. And it’s not like there was romance so I guess it won’t be so bad once I get to see it. And now that a movie is arriving, having watched the trailer, I am all for it the more now.
In the beginning, from the first manga, Blood was relevant to our interests. First there was Maya (Saya’s dark half who was so free and so gay it was cuntabulous) and Akiko (Maya’s human girl friend/connection to reality!) Saya is nothing without her human girlfriend with to support her and keep her sane but alas, some ugly-ass-muthafuckers think they can go fuck things up all the way from the first movie where they completely ignored Maya and Akiko, to Blood+ where Kaori was kicked to the curb, but I guess since they brought us Diva instead (as a replacement for Maya?) I could almost forgive them. Almost.
But then there came Last Blood! Last Blood that tried to redeem the source by adding Alice to Saya’s…Saya and she even tasted some of Alice’s Blood just like Maya did to Akiko.
I was happy again and finally paused in my re-reading of the old old manga!
But that happiness sure didn’t last. What with CLAMP going and…and…Blood-C our Blood series! Like, WTF?! Sure, they did the dark part to perfection but what’s with all the Dudes!? I know you are all ladies but COME ON!
And so I waited on watching that until now!
This movie finally introduces a girl for Saya – Hiiragi Mana. There seems to be something there – well, from what I saw. If I know CLAMP though, there is no GOOD END for them but I will take what I get. God knows how many cats had to die for CLAMP to attempt it at least! But I just know this won’t be free. I know for sure they will do something! And that blonde Solomon-look-alike dude is the problem. Damn it all. Why can’t we have nice things?!!!
Any ways, the trailer is actually very teasing and promises a lot. I just hope it actually delivers though.
Blood-C he Last Dark releases in cinemas (probably only in Japan) on June.
Jack & Diane
This was actually supposed to be an Ellen Page (Yes, that Ellen Kitty Page) and Olivia Thirlby movie but the damn production took its sweet time and they not only lost Ellen, but the lost Olivia as well.
Talk about a missed opportune! No wonder it is now a limited release only. But I guess it’s not about that. Runaways was also limited so I guess it’s about the theme then?
Oh well, at least Juno is no slouch and while natural blonde Riley looks…strange in dark hair, they are perfectly okay.
Though I am ecstatic about that Juno kissing a girl (yes, there is already a vid of it around) I can’t help but disappoint that I have just lost the chance to see Juno go all commando on another girl!
Jack & Diane is being very tight-lipped (well, apart from the fact that they spoiled us with showing the kiss already – Arg!) that I can’t seem to find a trailer for it.
Oh well, you will have to do with the clip (with the KISS – and a hot one at that)
Jack & Diane releases in November (I think).
