OK, so I lied. There is no way I could stop at just one. I ended up watching the larger part of Ep 2 as well, after all. I tried.

Btw, since this is a Taiwanese adaptation of a Japanese manga, the names are somewhat differently. Part of it is transliteration but I think another part is that these are Taiwanese characters so it would be weird if they had Japanese names. Since it's incredibly faithful as an adaptation, I couldn't care less about the name thing. Here is a little guide. Ling=Rei, Qi Luo=Kira, Dong Tae=Masao Da Ye=Tatsuya Qing Mei=Harumi.

Thoughts on Mars Ep 2 )

Last night, I had another Supernatural dream. I was travelling (platonically again. My subconscious is too damn faithful and won't let me have any fun) with Dean and Sam and we were fighting monsters in the metro. Bizarre.

And I bring you my favorite so far music video. It's of House of Flying Daggers and it made me want to cry.

Everyone, head over to the [livejournal.com profile] koalathebear's lj to check out her picspam of the love scene from House of Flying Daggers (unfortunately :P work safe) at this entry.

It's so beautiful and passionate and perfect. Go look.

Now.

Why are you still here?

P.S. I have an inexplicable urge to get my hands on every movie Takeshi Kaneshiro ever made. Hmmmm. I mean, just look at him! )

In honor of [livejournal.com profile] koalathebear making it back to Australia safely, I bring you pic spam from one of the movies she likes (and she isn't the only one :P), House of Flying Daggers. What is is about? Well, love, and fighting, and some gorgeous gorgeous colors. It's one of the three big imports of the period/wuxia (is that the term?) Chinese movies into the US and it's as hyper-personal as Hero is about the abstract over the individual (a big reason I prefer HoFD to Hero).

This pic spam is naturally a bit biased, as while Andy Lau is a fine actor, I am still bitter about what he did to Tony Leung in Infernal Affairs. Kidding. Sorta. It's just Takeshi Kaneshiro, the other male lead, really does it for me. Oh, and of course plenty of Zhang Ziyi. I am sure I duplicated a few shots within the post but I am tired and don't want to edit for the umpteenth time. I am sure you won't mind looking at some pretty twice.



The rest behind the cut. Spoilery )

I must be sick, because I think this is the hottest still I've ever seen (Takeshi Kaneshiro from House of Flying Daggers courtesy of a link from [livejournal.com profile] koalathebear). Yup, I loved the movie too, and not just because TK reminded me of Asian Legolas.

Pic behind the cut so as not screw up flist formatting )

Also, any VM-lover on my flist, hie over to [livejournal.com profile] keepaofthecheez's lj to check out her new layout. It's 2.10 related and if it doesn't make you want to give Logan a hug, your heart is 12 sizes too small :P
