Vid – Come Alive [Spider Lilies]

Spider Lilies is of course my 2nd Favourite Lesbian movie of all time as listed in my Ten Commandments post.

This movie is close to perfection. I should have made a video of it long before but I have been waiting for a Bluray or even HD rip to do it. Unfortunately there was no such luck and so I have chosen to wait no longer and use my DVD source instead. So forgive the less than usual quality.

As for the movie, the reasons it resonates with me so much is first and foremost, the depth of Jade’s love for Takeko! A love that lasted for ten years in the absence of her first and only love in Takeko! Seriously, the only other love that I can think of that rivals Jade is Homura’s love for Madoka that survived lifetimes and tragedies unknown to no man that would drive anyone insane!

Another reason is also what Takeko went through but in the end she overcame all that pain and fear and chose to love again, to love Jade.

And finally speaking of pain, I am forever grateful that despite everything we did not have a BAD END! I am still in shock, 10 years later, that we did not get a BAD END given what the story was and looking at the other films at the time.

Really, Spider Lilies is one of those rare gems that I am glad I got the chance to see and own.

The only reason it is on second place is because the ending was too safe. If anyone isn’t paying attention they would not understand it and in fact in the beginning I detested the ending because I did not get it then but now I do.

Anyway, enjoy the vid, supported by yet another song from Leona Lewis…

My Ten Commandments – Part 1

top10
AKA My Top 10 Favourite Yuri Movies Of All Time!

I know a few have been waiting for this list since forever as I have gotten this question quite a lot, and I apologise but that is how hard it was for me to settle on this final verdict!

No, I have not seen Ahgassi/The Handmaiden yet but dear Lord my lovely Readers, I have seen things! Oh have I seen things! Let me tell you this now, Fingersmith is tame, way tame compared to The Handmaiden! If we are going by the yuri, if the book yuri is a 50/100 then the movie yuri is a solid 96/100!

I kid you not!

And so just I presumed would be the outcome, The Handmaiden is going to be my all time favourite movie and all this before I have even watched it! I have never waited for something so hard in my life.

This list is labelled Part 1 because I am planning on posting an in-depth post about this list, explaining each movie and why it is where it is on the list. The delay is of course that I am waiting for The Handmaiden to drop. So do look forward to a deeper post explaining the list.

For now, these are my Ten Commandments, as I like to call them!

But just to be clear, this is not my Top 10 Movies of All Time List! That list contains none yuri/subtext movies like A Tale of two Sisters, The Dark Knight, Martyrs etc…

Anyway, yeah, that is that…for now.

Favourite Movie Photos Series 2

Spider Lilies 刺青

I know it is not good to assume but in the case of Spider Lilies, I will have to make an exception and assume that everyone who comes here has seen this movie.

Surely.

In fact I count on it because there is nothing more I can about this movie than saying it’s ‘near perfection’. Nay, It is perfection.

The main girls are;

Isabella
Isabella Leung
Rainie
Rainie Yang
Yi_han
Yi-han Chen

The casting Director of this movie sure hit jackpot! For the love of all that is…Is there a bad thing about this movie?!

Any ways for a short synopsis, in her high school days Takeko (Isabella) had a sweet heart Zhen Zhen(Yi-han) and at that time, Jade (Rainie) was only nine but she fell in love for the first time with Takeko as well way back then. While Takeko was over at Zhen Zhen’s having fun (Yep, that kinda fun) an earthquake happened in which her father died saving her little brother who was so broken by the incident he became a bit retarded. Pretty messed up I know.

That’s in the flashbacks.

The story takes place in the present where Takeko is all grown up and has a job (tattoo art) and Jade is also grown up (17/18) but her life wasn’t a good one and it seems she’s into online stripping.

Fate brings them together again after the long separation when Jade walks into the tattoo shop of Takeko’s.

Magic Happens.

Any ways, here are the pictures.

And I do apologise for the messy gallery but Win Live is not letting me upload to it!
