I just got around to seeing this movie, despite the fact that it did not get a wide-release.
Find it and watch it.
Believe me when I say, this film is in the same league of sci-fi/speculative film classics as Bladerunner and Children of Men.
Should have a HUGE fandom.
It deals with issues like class, caste-systems, oppression, and the nature of humanity in a way mainstream films like The Hunger Games never could.
Let me tell you a story about the film-maker Joon-Ho Bong. Some years back, I had the privilege of attending a screening of one his films and the man happened to be there. At that time, he’d already gotten some notice for making The Host, another awesome film that allegorizes heavy issues in humanity.
So, he does the q&a at the end and someone asks him why he’s never produced a Hollywood movie.
…And he says, paraphrasing; that Hollywood would never let him make the kind of movies he’d like. He’d have to hire an all-white cast and the actors would have to fit a certain aesthetic. They couldn’t be non-white, older than twenty-five, or non-thin…especially actresses.
He said, it’s not worth selling out, when he can make the kinds of movies he wants in South Korea.
…And then he makes this.
I’d love to spoil it for you, but suffice it say it was, as all good speculative sci-fi is, very effecting for me.
Again, I beg you PLEASE SEE THIS MOVIE.
And if you need more convincing??
Your faves are in it: Octavia Spencer aka the above flawless actress in the poster, Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris and the father/daughter pair from The Host, Kang-So Hung and Ah-Sung Ko (which had me thinking AU!).
Now, I shall commence spamming my tumblr with Snowpiercer reblogs…
Apologies ahead of time.
EDIT: ONE MORE THING!! A critic asked who his current favorite actor is and his answer was Viola Davis…
This was YEARS before The Help.
Release in the US is limited and starts in theaters June 27, 2014. Radius-TWC is the company distributing the film.
This is a 14 page story I’ve been working on for the past couple months (which is why there’s been a slow down in updates). I hope you like it, I worked pretty hard on it!
The Hortus Deliciarum is a pictorial encyclopedia, possibly the first of that type book compiled by a lady. For more about the Abbess Herrad of Landsberg, click through the picture!

“I’m a bit ashamed to admit I’ve only just gotten into the Trigun fandom. But I’m more than happy to admit that in the three months I’ve been in the fandom, I’ve finished watching the anime, the movie, and read the entire series. The only regret I have is not being in the fandom earlier.”
can she just get an award or something
I began my journey on January 2, 2009. I signed up to have gastric bypass surgery and went through a 6 month weight-loss program leading up to surgery where I lost 30lbs. A week before I was scheduled for surgery I called it off because I knew I could do it on my own. I lost another 70lbs in the following 2.5 years.
2012 was a crazy year, I started my first job, got married, lost my first job, and found a new job. Throughout that roller coaster I was able to maintain.
January 2nd of 2014 I recommitted myself to mu origional goal of 125. To reach this goal I havr gone back to logging my food on sparkpeople.com, working out with a trainer twice a week, and work out on my own an additional 3 days a week. I make sure to get in aix of cardio and strength because everyone knows muscle burns fat.
My advice to people just beginning on their journey would be 1) you only succeed if you do it only for you. 2) it isnt going to happen over night, the sooner you accept that the easier it will be. 3) allow yourself one day a week of rest and enjoyment. It is easy to deny yourself and break habits when you know you will get a reward day.
just for myself to remember :)
is the trigun fandom still around?
reblog if you’re in the trigun fandom, i want to see how big it is.
