A Welcome back present?

DSC_0139

Took its sweet time but my Plain Archive DVD of MOON YOUNG just arrived, right when I was about to contact them telling them that my purchase is taking a unusually long time to arrive.

This was shipped weeks ago, even the Bluray I bought after it, the SIFF 2016 one already arrived but this was nowhere to be seen. Oh well, not like I would have been able to do anything with it. My DIVA was down for the count and just recently got fixed so it is almost like someone up there was saving me the pain of having the DVD but not being able to watch it. Needless to say after this I am totally watching it.

And since every time I see Kim Tae-ri I want to re-watch The Handmaiden, you know what is going down tonight! And with that I say bye to thee…

What do we have here?

DSC_0335fixed

Well, this is awkward! I totally forgot about this purchase to tell you the truth. Can’t blame myself though, I have been all salivating at that tease of the Moon Young release. And speaking of which, where is the release date Plain Archive?! You can’t just tease us like that and leave us hanging!

Oh well, I know it is coming at least (hopefully with a BD set of The Handmaiden) so there is that and there is where my mind has been, totally forgetting about this one!

Oh yes, I know about this, but I haven’t watched it yet! Why? I don’t know but now I have it with EN subs so watched it is going to be!

Anyway, see ya around.

The Handmaiden Special Edition (UK)

I can’t believe it’s already August! Just like that, even before I expected it I came home and this is what greeted me and I was like…Oooh!

But I gotta say, out of all the Special Editions I have got, this is the most lackster of them all! I guess I have to look to the US and see if they have something more…I don’t know, appealing! Seriously, how long can you all glish-speaking persons under-play this movie?!

Like, you did not need to include the two separate cases! There is nothing inside those space-eating things other than a simple disc! Not even a piece of paper can be found in there! Do something damn it!

Well on the bright side, I got re-embossed 9 pounds since the retail is cheaper than the pre-order was. They probably had plans for something grand and got dropped! Seriously, I have a feeling too that the special features are not even subtitled! They had better be because if they are not, why the hell did we have to wait a whole year for the Bluray then?!!

Anyway, replacing the German and French rips with the UK ones now. Will find out soon if there are subs for the extra material (which are also lackster!) Like, they did not even put any effort into this Bluray!

Like, I am disappoint!

Please Plain Archive, save us!

Germany Ain’t Playing Around!

DSC_0127auto

So, I mentioned that a certain version of The Handmaiden was on the way, well, it’s here and dear Readers, is it grande!!!

Germany went all commando on this one! Not only did they pack a full 5 Discs into the box (BD and DVD versions of the Theatrical and Extended cuts of the movie, and an Extras DVD), but they also managed to pack in the condensed version of the photobook that got released first all those months ago last year! In addition to all that goodness, they also included some cards!

For now, they are the winners but the only reason that they won over Korea was because they had the Blurays, which the Korean version did not have. But that means that Korea will be releasing a Blu-ray version and are probably leaving it up to Plain Archive! You know that release is gonna be bananas!

The Germany version did not win because of the extras because I already own a bigger version of the PB while Korea gave us a completely different PB with their Boxset. France too has a win though, for being the first one to give us a Blu-ray of the Extended Version!

Up next is the English Blu-ray coming in two months! Sadly I do not think that is going to be winning any awards, only if it has extras that are translated. Be it only the Commentary of the Extended Version or the making ofs, whatever they have translated will see a win for them. Really, they better have them translated, otherwise I am giving them a minus for taking so long to release the BDs when they aren’t doing anything productive for it!

Any way, that’s that. Jump over for more photos of this lovely Boxset of The Handmaiden from Germany…

H’ya Everyone. Been a while

DSC_0059

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…
