That’s Cute…

And I am not even done yet!

There’s still a lot missing from my collection including the Japanese Version, Taiwan Version, the American Version and so many others from the looks of that special arts book that came with my #PlainArchive purchase, which showcases all the covers and posters of The HANDMAIDEN from around the world!

I gotta catch’em all!

Now dear Reader, that is love for THE HANDMAIDEN!

[Ahgassi] Dear Readers, See U At The Crossroad

An English Trailer just dropped and OMFG, I just can’t right now!

This scene is of course straight out of the pages of the book. Look at that fake innocence (Not a spoiler since the trailers now give things away) on Maud’s face!! Totally screams that incredible scene in the book! You know which it is. It was the____ and the ____ that they _____ _____.

From what I am gathering in the trailers, Mr Park is just going to fill in the blanks that the book left out due to their intensity. We were told only that Maud ‘entertained’ her Uncle’s Gentlemen friends, but apart from reading books, we were pretty kept in the dark. We never knew what RFR was up to while we were with the girls at Briar seeing as the story was told from their POVs. So I understand that this movie overs those POVs we never got to know in the book, and I love it!

I mean this means that we get to enjoy Maud and Sue’s story from yet another perspective! How cool is that?! A love story told from three different perspectives! Never in the history of fiction and entertainment has that ever happened!

And I thought Fingersmith was legendary from just two perspectives!

And hopefully, this will shave off some worry most people seem to have thinking that The Handmaid/Ahgassi/The Handmaiden (How many titles does this movie have!?!) will not have yuri! Yeah, I don’t know why they think that despite what evidence we have in trailers and other promo material. All the director said was that he would focus more on RFR! He was the third most important character and I have to agree (even if it pains me to) that he was kinda, given the boot in the book. I mean I was happy he was not around but still, thinking of how he was essentially the one responsible for bringing Sue and Maud together, a little more screen time wouldn’t hurt. Anyway, his fate still awaits him so…

Buuuuut back to this new Alternate English Cannes version of the trailer…

My frikkin Soul! That is what I am willing to give up for this movie! If anyone knows of any gypsies or dark magicians or fallen angels, please contact me immediately! I will make sure to save space down there when I get to hell later!

Holy Molly!

One of the loveliest people in the world today, my Readers, just shared another OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD trailer for The Handmaid and by the gods!!! I don’t even…

Did this awesome mofo just go and turn Fingersmith into a fantasy horror movie?! Did he just go and turn my favourite book into my favourite movie genre?!

im done done done

Dear Readers, I don’t think I can handle this! How can I survive, knowing this movie is going to be out there in approximately 1 month and yet I have to wait until next year to see it!?! How?!

I thought reading the book would sate my hunger somewhat but the effects were the exact opposite! BBC’s actresses were wiped from my mind and were replaced by Min-Hee and Tae-Ri as I read the book. All I saw were their faces and that made my hunger of seeing these two that much greater!

And then just yesterday, wonderful, wonderful tiduf goes and shares this new trailer (Best trailer for 2016 hands down!), that fuckin blew my mind!

I mean, I know Fingersmith is crazy, especially during Maud’s chapter but it is subtle. Mr Park just went full on crazy with his adaptation! Jesus! I mean, this shouldn’t be a surprise. No country exaggerates emotions like Korea does. So of course taking a story like that of Fingersmith and putting into Korean hands, you just know you are in for the ride of your life!

I thought that I was ready, I don’t think I am anymore! This is, this is just too much!

And while I watched the new trailer on YoutTube, I decided to dig up some more things on Ahgassi and what did I find? Press conferences with the cast about the movie! You know something is sure to happen in those and while I did not have much hope seeing as Min-Hee is actually a very reserved actress and Tae-Ri being a new-be, I wasn’t expecting much.

But they showed a glimpse of unexpected chemistry within the few minutes of video that surprised me. I really wish I knew what they were saying. They seemed to be talking about how it was working with each other and I really want to know! Hopefully someone will take pity on us and translate.

Tae-Ri of course was very nervous and it was very clear this was new to her. She spent most of the time talking looking down and her hand restlessly rubbing her leg. She was just so cute. Min-Hee was also still the same old, calm and collected self. It was great seeing her react to Tae-Ri’s talks.

Anyway, enough rumblings…

[Ahgassi] An Explanation!

tooth

So, I know those interested demand some answers. Answers as to why I am seemingly so obsessed with this scene. Especially that look on Sue’s (Tae-Ri) face! I know you want to know why so serious, posting three caps of the close-up of Sue’s face, twice! Actually, make that thrice, counting this time as well!

Well, you are in luck. I couldn’t resist and started yesterday to read Fingersmith again. I am currently on page 101. This scene takes place on page 96-97. Well, as far as Sue’s POV is concerned. I mean, the good stuff mostly happens in Part 2 – Maud’s POV of the story so really, even if I tell you about Sue’s view, it is half a spoiler. Nay, it ‘s a quarter spoiler because Sue was just so innocent that I don’t think anyone reading this part for the first time felt anything out of the ordinary. Until they reached Maud’s side of the story. One doesn’t not truly appreciate everything in Sue’s view until we get to Maud.

And so I figured, I might as well explain why, what it is about this scene that so warrantees nine whole caps of the same second or so of video.

If you don’t want to get quarter spoiled, stop here.

First, let’s read the actual text of this scene in the book, according to Sue…

This movie has me like…
excel25

Seriously, just come out already! We have not only gotten three videos in the last two weeks alone for photos galore! What is going on? Then again, for a movie coming out in less than two months, to think we are only now getting something of it, especially a trailer is somewhat shocking. I mean they announced this all the way back in 2014!!

Anyway, another video, this time Behind The Scenes, has been released. Also reading about how some people are worried about this movie from the trailer thinking there is no yuri has got me like – Please read the book!!! Everything in the trailer so far is spot on. There are no liberties here except for Maud not being the same age as Sue in this one. But we don’t really know that. Maybe Min-hee is actually supposed to be the same age as Tae-ri in the movie. I mean, being in Maud’s position would make anyone seem older beyond their years, and actually Maud was like that in the book – So far a cry from Sue.

Anyway, personally I don’t mind that. Actually, the more taboo the relationship the better. Um yeah, you all know I am not normal by now so what’s new? If they choose to add in the forbidden mature/young spice, I will take it like a champ!

Also, I found some real HD vids so better caps of the previous posts after the jump.

The best book being adopted to film by the best Korean director for the job – Won’t this movie just come out already please…

Me in White, This Movie in Tyson!

Please oh please save me!!!!!

I just can’t handle this anymore! Waiting for this movie is going to be the worst torture I will ever go through. I know this for a fact! A Girl at My Door wait? Irrelevant!

I am also glad to mention that the award for the Best Reader Of The Year, has already been given away to Marcello, for bringing these new images release to my attention. Have been focusing on my project and since I did just check the usual sites for more about this movie just last weekend, well, I did not think new things would drop so soon.

I was awesomely mistaken. Leave it to Fingersmith to do this!

So, I went hunting and I found the other images with the other characters (after the jump) and when I calmed down enough to contain my ecstasy (no other word for this), I was even more blown away by the simple fact that from the posters alone, every character is already 100% spot on! To those who read the books these images are very spoilery to tell the truth because of how perfect the actors portray each characters’ traits just simply from the images!

It’s MADNESS!

You have that bastard Gentleman looking just like the ass that he is. Then you have the Uncle who is very possessive of his niece Maud despite the way he treats her (or treated her in her younger life). Then there the complex characters that are our two lovely leads in Maud and Sue! Seriously, even from the covers one still can’t place them and that includes me too! Seeing as I am one that has read the book countless times already and will soon after my project, this is a real testament to how spectacular this story and the two’s relationship is!

Just…

And yes, if you were here years back when I posted about the Reads of the Shelf, you might remember that the Fingersmith copy I have had all these years was the one with the Gloves. The one above is obvious different. This new edition is the UK version. In the US I think they still have the gloves, albeit with different design.

So, why the different book? Well, I am hopeless when it comes to Fingersmith so I decided to go out and just buy another copy, to make the experience some what fresh in waiting for this movie!

Yes, this is a book that was released in 2002 and yet it costs almost 30% more than it did about five years ago (when I bought the second Hard Cover copy). But do I give a tic? Let’s just say I would have bought it even if it cost 100 more!

Fingersmith and this movie I tell you dear Readers…

Any who, jump over for a few more pics…

Holy shit holy shit holy shit!!! That Min-hee and Tae-Ri as Maud and Sue! Fuck fuck fuck!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m even happy to see that bastard Gentleman! What the hell is happening!?!!!!!

I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I took a day to get myself together before I decided to write up on this. I thought for sure that I was ready! As it is apparent, I was most definitely not!

My usual Readers should know I very rarely curse but fuck if this isn’t the one time to lose myself! Okay, this is getting out of control! I need to control myself. I was bred to master my senses, to adopt to any and all situations I…
