Archives For Stills

These are by far the best stills I’ve found of the film- I don’t know how it happened, but I found them in this Cineplex Taiwanese blog. They are a thing of beauty, and I’ve learned my lesson… so I’m taking and re-posting. I’ve lost many a-movie-still for not keeping an archive. They even got an amazing quality of -possibly- my favorite scene in the movie~

Oh, thank you, bless their hearts. Does anybody know if there’s any plans for a re-release of the film in Bluray (with English subtitles) because I would die. I WOULD DIE.

… and you gotta wing it like a ninja with all these geoblocking business.

Actually- I don’t think Tiger Moms would approve of winging something, but Chinese skills would need to be improved forcefully because Tiger Mom (虎妈猫爸) ain’t getting subbed nor fansubbed alright, because that’s how C-fans deal. You want to enjoy all these fancy movies, cdramas and cmusic, you better learn Chinese alright~

I feel Zhao Wei encouraging claps.

Ah~ I thought I would do a post compilation of the Chulpan Khamatova TV serials that I’ve been able to find on YouTube. Starting with these two~ Children of the Arbat (Дети Арбата) and Pepel (Пепел). I’ve seen Pepel with Google translated subtitles, but I haven’t seen Arbat yet, as subtitles online are incomplete.

Here we go:

  1. Children of Arbat
  2. Doctor Zhivago – Доктор Живаго [review]
  3. Dostoevsky – Достоевский [review][español]
  4. Pepel

Oh, I’m so looking forward to Isabella Leong’s comeback.

10 Years After As If

Oh, man. I remember when I used to diligently run the As If fanlisting. Hadn’t even bothered to check on it for the past 5 years, so just deleted the whole thing because it all broke down. However, Pete brought to my attention a two-part piece that Digital Spy has run for the 10th anniversary of the show’s final episode- in their “retro” section nonetheless.

It’s a lovely catch up piece, and it just basically crushes what people had -somehow- hoped for~ a DVD release. Music licensing is just too damn expensive, and the show just relies too heavily on its music. Very much like the Popular conundrum. It’s a good read, catching up with almost everyone. I always giggle (and get giddy) when I spot anyone from the cast in other projects I’m watching.

I *cough* caught the show a very very VERY long time ago. *cough* You know where.

Oh, man. Sooz was my life.

The bad thing is that the show is not readily available… the good thing is that only the really cool people know it. xD
