Play Girl

So, I can’t believe it has taken me this long to make the connection (it hasn’t been that long really) but when watching ‘The Silenced‘ I had a feeling that I had seen the girl who played Yeon-deok somewhere before. I am not talking about the fact that she reminds me of A-reum by the way. So over the weekend, I select randomly a bunch of movies to re-watch and one of the movies is one that she was in.

That movie is ‘The Youth’.

Saikin, Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashiinda ga [J-Movie]

Saikin, imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashiinda ga

And so we continue on with another movie in the R18 releases. Those into anime will know of this series about a little sister who gets haunted by a ghost. I am not familiar with the story as I only watched the first episode because of a cap about the girl and the ghost doing it. All I know is that the ghost is collecting the Imouto’s nectar for something. They explain it in the movie but I guess it was too dumb to stick because I don’t remember the reasons exactly and I am not about to sit through this again any time soon.

If you know of the story ‘Saikin, Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashii’, then you know that the yuri in this is like the yuri in any other none 100% yuri pron movie! The yuri was just there! The story would have done perfectly fine without it, which was really annoying because in the movie, the yuri made sense! If the Sister had ended up with the Ghost, it would have made perfect sense but alas. Just another harem like this world hasn’t had enough harems to outlast the Sun!

Or, is it?

This movie was kind of disappointing to me in the yuri department. The sex was awesome! They had everything to produce a very nice yuri movie. They gave Imouto-chan the main role and that means she and ghost were the mains with the Brother being there just for the sake of sticking to the original story’s plot! I say that but I have no idea what the original story is since the movie is the only medium I have seen in its entirety. For all I know the movie changed the original story quite a bit. Anyway they had the basis of a great yuri movie but they went and totally fucked this up during the last arc! But did they really? I can’t tell because that last third of the story was shit! It was like they didn’t know what the hell to do or what direction to go in. So what we got was what some would consider an OPEN-END.

Still, Mitsuki/Hiyori won in every department possible to compare except happily ever after but even then…OPEN-END, remember? Still, this was a pain to sit through. Let’s see what’s up…

The Treacherous [K-Movie]

The Treacherous 간신

So, there I was doing my rounds of what I like to call ‘digging the internet for gold’ when I stumbled upon a certain Korean movie titled ‘The Treacherous’. Being desperate as I haven’t had any new yuri titles lately to watch, I grabbed it because the poster had two ladies (and a man) on it. Sure the first thing anyone would think of, what I thought of, was that this was definitely a harem. But then I thought of the title and I was like, maybe there is a twist in there somewhere! So I get it.

I was not ready!

I am going to say this right now – This movie is the weirdest Korean movie I have ever seen!

Frozen Fever

ff-54 ff-51

So dear Readers, I just watched the Frozen Fever short movie!


Mein Gott! What did I just watch?! This can’t be real! There is no way this is real! Disney did not so make this! I refuse to believe it! This is not something that the real deal Disney could have released! No way! This is stuff for fan Fiction!

That’s right, I get it now! This was some fan made short that Disney thought was good enough to show to the masses! It makes sense to release it as a part of a different movie. That makes everything clear! I am so glad I did not see this in the cinema because I can’t comprehend the awkward atmosphere there as people watched this trying very hard not to see all the Elsanna hitting them in their faces 7-D style! Sure the reason I didn’t go to the cinema at the time was because I wouldn’t have been caught dead watching a purely fantastical romance movie like Cinderella but still…

Seriously people, what is this?! I had to turn off the subs because everything was just so gay especially when you paid attention to the lyrics as Elsa guided Anna along the red string…THE RED frikkin STRING people! They did the…the string…they….and the lyrics and the cake and the gifts and the…

Oh! My! God!

Even the damn title! ‘Frozen Fever’?! You betcha butt it’s the frikkin Frozen Fever! And you just went and increased the mortality rate with this short release that couldn’t have screamed ‘Elsanna’ any louder even if it tried to. Forget the incoming sequel, unless Anna refuses to marry K when he proposes, and those two sleep in the same bed (not like that you perv), there is no way they can make Elsanna anymore solid than this short movie!

Seven minutes. More like 7min of eternity! It took me close to an hour to finally stop watching that video and move onto the next in the queue! I finally understand all the hype! The exchanges between Elsa and Anna, the touches, the looks, the dialogue, every damn thing were stuff of fiction! I don’t even…

Tabi no Omosa [J-Movie]

Tabi no Omosa 旅の重さ

This movie it dedicated to those who were like – Reina said she loves Taki-sensei? Dropped! – when watching a certain episode of Hibike Euphonium, like a person could only love just one person since the day they were born till their death or something.

‘Tabi no Omosa’, terribly translated as always into English as ‘The Journey to Solitude’ – I hereby swear to give up on the people in charge of these translations because if I continue minding this, I will develop a case of brain cancer soon. Those two titles are so different in meaning the weight behind them! Why do they even do this? It’s not like they are lines that need to sound in flow when spoken like they do in dubs! So this is the last time you will see me posting the English titles let alone mentioning them!

‘Tabi no Omosa’ is yet another oldie, in fact over 11 years older than the other movie I posted about yesterday – Taifu Club. This is the movie I was talking about in that post. Tabi no Omosa is a 1972 drama directed by Saitou Koichi about a 16 year old girl that leaves home to go on a pilgrimage around the Island she lived on ‘Shikoku’.

Interesting to know that one of my favourite Japanese movie companies was named after a real Island.

Oh yeah, before we commence I want to point out that if you are only into yuri you might not like this movie much because Makiko our main character ends up falling for an older man and lives with him by the end of the movie. There are other points that will make the pain not worth it keeping this one. On the other hand if you enjoy good cinema, which I find most of the old Japanese movies are, you will definitely be keeping this one. Also the plot of the movie kind of gives it away but the yuri is a moment in Makiko’s life, which was expected seeing as she was on a journey. She and Masako did not stay together because even though Makiko had been pulled in by the stage life of the troupe, the veil had been lifted when she saw them in their daily lives and it was a life much different from hers. Still if she had stayed I am sure she would have changed the people around her but she did not and knowing that, this is going to be a very brief post. So then let’s get rolling.

Beautiful Crazy [T-Movie]

Beautiful Crazy 乱青春

Many of you have probably seen this image somewhere related to yours truly and you might have had questions regarding it. Well, the moment of truth is upon thee!

I cannot believe it has taken me this long to finally write about this movie. Seriously, how long has it been since I got the DVDs? I believe I bought it (along with Spider Lilies and Candy Rain) all the way back in 2009. So that makes it more than 4 years!

Well, at the very least I have an idea why and that is because I did not like this movie that much when I first watched it, especially given that I watched Candy Rain and Spider Lilies at around the same time. Those two movies were straight forward and made complete sense to my then still green-bottomed self when it comes to yuri. I was into the clean yuri back then when unless girls looked adoringly into each other’s eyes or kissed or slept together, they wouldn’t be considered shippable! I was so young then.

So then Tuesday night I re-watch both Spider Lilies and this movie and I found myself getting embarrassed at how strongly I reacted to this movie back then. I remember that after it was over I hid the DVD so far in the closet that I wished to completely forget about it. Watching it again I realized why I did not like it that much in the beginning. The reason was that the ships were fucked up. You all know how I get when a ship I am supporting is not to be. Usually it is my fault but not this time. You only need to see the poster for this movie to know I was right in shipping Xiao-bu and Angel. Saying this you probably already can imagine what the movie had in store for them.

But it was not just this ship, the other one was also all over the place. Even after calming down and watching the movie again after a lot of experience I still couldn’t figure out what their deal was! This other couple is Xiao-bu and Ah-Mi (Or Amy as the semi-subs named her). But the ships were only part of the whole problem. The story telling and the direction was un-nerving and the system the director (Chi Y. Lee) chose to adopt as the flow of the story, jumping between future, present and past, was so frequent it hurt my brain.

But even as broken as it seemed, even as some might consider it just another art of direction, Beautiful Crazy is just as the title says – It is crazy no doubt about it but beautiful at the same time. I believe it needs a couple of watches to grow on people and there are some scenes that you will definitely want to revisit not to mention that the story is not one that you can grasp in a single run through. So I guess with that kind of thinking this is a great movie.

The story follows the lives of three girls whose lives are mysteriously intertwined but all have that same focal point and that is Xiao-bu. The story takes place in different timelines at the same time so it gets a bit hard to follow but like I said, a couple of watches and you will be on top of the game. I myself still need a few more to fully grasp it but for now what I know is that Angel and Ah-Mi are the future (ship), Xiao-bu and Ah-Mi are the present, and Xiao-bu and Angel were the past. So, when you see these different ships you should know right away where in the story this is taking place. The story is about these three girls’ connection to one another and feelings they hold for each other, mostly with Xiao-bu because she was the main catalyst and can be considered the main out of the mains.

Angel Yao as Angel

Chien-hui Liao as Ah-Mi

Amiya Lee as Xiao-bu

From that then our cast is as follows; Angel – who is my favourite character out of the three main girls, is played by Angel Yao. Xiao-bu is portrayed by Amiya Lee and Ah-Mi by Chien-hui Liao. I haven’t seen anything else from these three, be it before Beautiful Crazy or after so our acquaintance is limited to this movie. I like what I saw from all of them though so I doubt it was their first or last acting roles.

Taifu Club 台風クラブ

So, remember when I said I would be talking about a few gems from old Japanese cinema? Well, yesterday, being a Sunday (a day that makes you want to re-watch everything!) one of the few videos I managed to watch was a movie that released all the way back in 1985 and directed by Soumai Shinji – Taifu Club (Typhoon Club)! I think it won like seven awards so it has to be good, right? Well, the fact that I was watching it for the fourth time yesterday proves that it is indeed good!

Now, I am sure that most will find this boring. It is one of those movies that don’t have BGM, that seemingly spend time on scenes that most movies would do without – scenes that go on way longer than necessary. But I totally love these kinds of movies! Most movies in my Japanese collection have this vibe about them (Strawberry Shortcake, Blue, End of Puberty, etc.). It is such in fact that I can’t explain the story because despite having subs and having watched it four times by now I’m still lost at the plot of this movie!

It is titled Typhoon Club but that title like 10% relevant because said typhoon happens at the end of the movie and there is nothing like a club in school that deals in typhoons or anything like that. It just so happened that classmates got trapped in school when the typhoon hit and spent the night there. This was during the last 30 or less minutes of a 2hr movie. The rest of the movie was just following a bunch of high school students in their daily lives.
