Me, when I knew how angelic Park So-dam was before everyone fell in lust with her because of PARASITE!
Hi all, it’s been so long! Reason? Well, if you were following me on twitter, you know but the reason is that I was avoiding anything that would have taken my enjoyment of Wonder Woman away and also I had probs with my PC. Yes, I am talking about the new movie that just came out last weekend.
It’s been covert but most of you probably can tell I am a huge DCEU fan. After what happened with the first three movies, even though I enjoyed them all, I can’t deny that my first viewings were ruined by what was going on through my mind, as a result of me reading all the reviews, reactions and posts about said movies before I got the chance to watch them myself.
It took me three viewings to finally start enjoying BvS on my own terms because all I saw were the flaws that people had pointed out and that took a lot out of it. Eventually of course I got over it but the sour taste still remains. I wanted to enjoy those movies the first time with the rest but alas.
And so for Wonder Woman, I decided to hide away from the interwebs as much as I could. It was hard but I managed it and I have never been so glad! Yesterday was my 5th and final viewing of Wonder Woman but as for what I thought about it, that is for another post.
For now I am just letting you know I am back and sharing some of the SWAG I got in these past few weeks while away. Other than this, a lot of other great things happened in this period. My birthday happened, a 7 year old ship finally delivered the good for all involved, making my forever happy I stuck with them all through these challenging seasons, yuri is everywhere, seriously, a lot of things happened while I was in hiding. Hopefully I get to write about all of them!
Anyway, jump over for pics of the interesting of SWAG I got. As for DIVA, I just replaced the parts that died but I am planning on a full upgrade soon. I also grabbed a new camera (see twitter) that I used to grab these pics. Yes, my S8 camera is not bad but come on! A phone camera is still a phone camera. Or maybe it was because I got hooked on cameras after re-watching the Pang brothers’ ‘Ab-normal Beauty’ (We need to talk about this BTW)? I don’t know.
The collection includes my very first Plain Archive purchase The Silenced Blu-ray, The special 2disc French Handmaiden Blu-ray, the Korean 3Disc Handmaiden DVD, and the Netherlands 2Disc Fingersmith DVD. The Germany version of Handmaiden is on the way and the English version of the Special Extended Blu-ray coming in Aug is already on pre-order.
You all know what this means, right? Why I have all medium of The Handmaiden? Well, you will soon find out!
For now, it is great to be back. So jump over for the pics of what comes in these lovely boxsets…
Pre-orders are now open to those interested!
ONLY 100 COPIES are available to international customers (now 99) so get to it while you still can! Had to stay up way later than before just to grab my copy as soon as the orders went live. Not making the mistake of waiting again!
If you are reading this, thank you very much dear Plain Archive! Please keep up the unparalleled work!
I cannot tell anymore what is fantasy and what is reality! In a world where your dreams come true very often kind of makes fantasy and reality blur that line between them! In a time where you get a Fingersmith movie adaptation by one Park Chan-wook, a time where you get gems like ‘Chikyuu de tatta Futari” and “A Girl at My Door“, like, these are all things that I only fantasized about only years ago.
And today, dear Friends, today I just found this wonderful post on Plain Archive’s Instagram! You all do not know this but every week in the top posts for the day, that is posts read most during the day, ‘More On The Silenced‘ has been in the top 10 even just the day before yesterday it was up there.
This means that people really are still interested in this movie despite having been out for a long while. I already own the DVD, if you remember my post about that but I was kind of not expecting a Bluray at all and only dreamed of the possibility!
No more dreaming for me! Plain Archive is on the ball and you know what this means – Subtitles!!! Yes, official subs for this hidden gem of a movie! I liked that post then went to their site to pre-order faster than I am supposed to be able to!
But when I got there, it was not in the pre-order list! was I TOO SOON™? I think I was too!
I am now content to wait for their version of Ahgassi and the American version in August if I am going to be getting The Silenced soon.
Just look at that fabulous swag though >.< I can’t wait to get my grabby paws on them. Bluray of The Silenced…
Back at the end of last year, after Christmas, I was out looking for the Release of The Silenced because I wanted my Bluray and sadly while I did not find a BD version on sale any where, I did find the DVD versions on YesAsia.
Yeah, I know but since it was a Special Edition and also had English Subs, I figured what would be the harm in getting myself a copy! And so I ordered one. I just did not expected it to take a frikking month to arrive!!! Like what year is this, the 19th Century?! And it wasn’t even a free shipping option I went for! Needless to say, I was reminded of why I stopped buying from that site!
But I had no choice seeing as no other place I knew of sold the DVD so I went and placed the order anyway. But really, who takes a month to ship a simple DVD!! I don’t think wherever YesAsia is located that it is that different from Japan or even Thailand.Only three days it takes to ship from those countries, a week without International Express!
Anyway, enough of that, the DVD has a couple of photos and a Booklet. I can’t wait to re-watch it with better subs after it is done encoding (I don’t like watching things on disc. Screen captures are a nightmare!).
Jump over for some quick scans I took of some of the photos and booklet. Most of them are familiar but oh well…
