Just watched the movie Bad Times At The El Royale this weekend I can’t get these two out of my head! So I went about Youtube to get more of them and I found a goldmine of some very delicious interview videos!
Above is one of a kind vid that I have never done before! Enjoy the quirkiness!
Took them only about a month to arrive but hey, all good things are worth waiting for, right?
So then, how is the best ever version of the Blurays you will ever get for the Handmaiden? Well, it could have been better, way better, by first of all including an English version of the storyboard and finally adding in the script too. But really, it is still the best version of The Handmaiden you will ever get…until Plain Archive does the thing it does with big titles where they keep releasing better versions that is!
Kind of hurts though that the storyboard, the COMPLETE storyboard, was only in Korean! It’s kind of like a cave man being given 2 billion bucks! He has it but it is kind of no value to him! Okay, maybe crude comparison and while I don’t understand a lick of written Korean, there are still illustrations that tell the story anyway and I great value in it!
Kind of surprised though that almost every scene in the storyboard is in the movie – the extended version of course. I guess there really was no 3 hour version of the movie.
Anyway, I bought the mega pack which contained all three variations of the release! The first one is this one that contains the holy bible of the movie, aka, the complete storyboard! The discs are encased in a really awesome looking steel-book! The outer cover of which has Hideko chasing Sook-hee out of her room (after slapping her).
The second one also has the discs enclosed in the same styled steel-book but instead of the storyboard, it has a collection of covers and posters from all corners of the world. There is really some creative covers in there!
The last one of the pack is a fold-in casing which is also not to sneeze at! These pictures do not do the actual products justice as I took them at night inside with unnatural light. It has a small booklet with photos and a review from Time Magazine by Stephanie. The cover of the booklet looks really elegant with its golden patterns!
As for the data itself, there are three discs in each version; The Theatrical Cut, The Extended Cut and The Extra Features! The extras are a cool 141 minutes, which is almost the same length of the movie itself, and I am of course talking about The Extended Cut! Best believe it I am about to watch it and see what more I can get from this already bestest lesbian movie in existence!
Jump over for the scans…
@yappari_teamb just posted this on Twitter, obviously for Mayuki, showcasing how they have been holding hands since 2007, and through my woes of missing the bestest ship ever in the history of the Idol world, I spied what was behind them…
Like, talk about a combo breaker! Seriously, if on their left had been either Kojiyuu or Atsumina, I would have had this cap touched up, printed in poster format, framed, and then put up on the wall in my living room about the chimney!
And yes, I am aware that I haven’t yet touched upon Mayuyu’s graduation but my heart is just not ready yet for that! Add in the pain of my other Oshii leaving (Ikoma-kun and Maachun) and really, it is all just too much to have gotten over yet!
But it will be coming…
Oh how I missed you my lovelyz >.<
A huge ‘thank you’ to all some of my favourite photographers on Twitter ( @nyoki_yama, @meimei209a, @photo_nyonyo, @tigerhouse1978 and @taka_masadesu) for sharing these lovely pics of AKB48G in Fukushima, doing that free live thing for social community support.
Lord, it feels so long since I last got got some Kagoshimai content! And to those who still don’t know these weird terms I am using here, ‘Kagoshimai’ roughly translates to Kagoshima Sisters, which I first hear from Sakura-tan when the two were promoting ‘Crow’s Blood’. They are Kagoshima sisters because they are both from the same prefecture (Kagoshima). There are two other members in Team Yasusu from Kagoshima (Nogizaka 3rd Gen’s Ozono Momoko and Team 8’s Shimoaki Karin).
As for CBS – Cherry Blossom Snow, is my ship name for Sakura-tan and Yukirin! One way you can think of Sakura/Yuki if you took the Sakura that means Cherry Blossoms and the Yuki that means Snow and when you combine them you get…
With that out of the way, I am still surprised that once again AKS proves to be the most incompetent when it comes to decision-making because they have yet to capitalise on the fact that these two exist and thus using them to sell! But really, if they let Mayuki slip through their fingers (MAYUKI…*cries a bit*) they will most definitely not do shit with these two before Yukirin leaves!
What am I even doing wasting my brain cells here…We all know someone up there hates Yukirin with their guts so chances are that someone has brought these chances up before in meetings and they were simply shot down because otherwise I don’t know how they can not see the potential here!
Oh well, I will just continue enjoying them by myself and be glad that I seem to be the only one (and maybe a few others) who sees their potential to make AKB48G great again!
Eh, at this rate I am just waiting for Yukirin to dump their asses so I can quit the Idol life too!
