Movie Night with Mumon in the Land of Stealth - Japan Cuts - NYC - 7/13/17
Director Nakamura was special guest and he has fans & supporters in the NY artsy film scene
Spotted some Ohno fans in the audience during Question & Answer time. Spotted fan girl with the Are You Happy Con bag.
Mumon is not a true period piece, like an off beat genre set in the Sengoku Era. No cool samurais or ninjas here, ordinary people trying to survive. Though the love for $$$ kind of reminds me of Nino….XD And director used a weird off Jazz music as the movie’s BGM which works.
Very funny but in off beat kind of way, people killing each other but accepted in quirky weird way. No doors & gates can keep Mumon out except his wife can lock him out of his own house.
The climatic scenes were heartbreaking, you really cannot watch or hear Ohno scream or cry. In the theater, the scream was primal. Someone who didn’t show true emotions before and just discovered heartache. Whole theater was silent and I think everyone held their breath.
Go see it if you can, you do laugh, cry, and lots of OMG, they just did that.
Questions to director: old lady fan asked why Ohno was chosen. Wasn’t sure if director was kidding, but he basically said that some of the battle scenes require a lot of $$$$ and Ohno being involved guarantees the $$$ will be there.
Memorable moments during shooting: it was really hot and when you have armies of men sweating, it stunk. He told everyone to bear with it until they move the shooting to Nagano where its cooler. Also the Ninjas in black were sweating so much, the salt from their sweat was crystallizing onto the clothing. Crew had to get sand to blast the white streaks of salt off.
Future project with Ohno? Tea ceremony?
Toho and TBS - if you are reading this, please put the cut fight scenes back into the DVD. Leader, Suzuki Ryohei & Iseya Yusuke’s fight scenes were terrific.
Ok so like they fucking went ham on Sebastian’s eye glowy thing that he does. Like hot fucking damn they do not let you forget that he’s a demon. And it’s just so fucking sexy?? With his eyes all sharp and red and hngggg
Lizzie being Lizzie. Fucking awesome omg. That scene did not disappoint they did SO GREAT. THE WIFE OF THE QUEEN’S GUARD DOG FUCK YEAH. She lost her shit ain’t no freaky zombies better touch her man or else *puts up fists*
Snake doing the voices for his snakes lmfao omg I love that boy
Baby Ciel happily drinking milk with honey is my new aesthetic
The fact that they actually incorporated Sebastian getting all misty black into his ‘demon-ish’ form which was AWESOME
Seeing the Ciel/Lizzie dynamic was just amazing. I feel so pumped to write something for them. Because despite everything my god you really see how much they’re willing to fight for each other and that shit is my jam.
Grey being a salty salty
GRELL. AGHHHH DA BEST.
Hearing Knox call Grell ‘senpai’
Waiting until the end of the credits to see WILL!!! *heart throbbing*
Ok the fact that like they took the key scenes from the manga and just like kept them there for an extra few seconds so we could all soak in the deliciousness. When undertaker reveals his eyes and says the whole ‘how sad should laughter disappear’ thing, the one where he’s holding the woman zombie doll thing, and the whole death scythe GAHH.
WHEN THEY FADE HIS FACE FROM A SKULL LIKE OMG HE IS REALLY -DEATH- YOU KNOW LIKE GWAHHH YAAASS AMAZING.
the fact that I dragged the bf along so he could finally explain the hell of a butler phrase to me lmao.
PROBABLY A LOT MORE BUT IT’S MIDNIGHT AND SO I’M SLEEP K THANKS
I just had a dream I was watching behind the scenes for Sherlock series 5 and Andrew was talking about a scene he’d be in, but then he asked one of the crew members for a drink and it just so happened that this crew member was a ~m a s s i v e~ Mormor shipper so he gave Andrew a glass that had the name Seb written on it. When Andrew saw he just looked at the glass confused and was like “Who’s Seb?” The guy was trying not to fanboy out of his mind so he just shrugged, so Andrew took a drink from the glass and handed it back to the crew member and continued talking about the scene, meanwhile the guy was freaking out and muttering to himself “Omg Jim just swallowed Sebastian and tasted him in his mouth and everything oh wow that’s so hot and the ship is confirmed!!1!”
Even in my dreams us Mormor shippers love to reach for our non-existent ship… ;w;
hm can I tell you a depressing story: I was at a party, and I heard someone there liked snk, so I decided why not let me try to relate to this person and we begin a conversation. she starts telling me that she ships someone with eren so so hard. i'm hoping, i'm desperately hoping... "ok you say who you ship on three" "armi-" "LEVI OH MY GOD ERERI IS SO HOT ASDFGHJKLLL I REALLY LOVED THAT COURT SCENE WHERE HE BEAT HIM UP OMG" i really hate living.
Happened to me my first day of Japanese 101.
She said to me, she says:
“You can’t deny, Eren and Levi have something.”
Like bitch even if it were undeniable which it soooooo isn’t, I can and will still deny that bitch, blocked, reported, get out of here.
Can we talk about that freaking video ?!? Jack is hot I can't handle it omg and it's like hilarious too ! I think I might have watched it like about 35 times today I'm obsessed haha And how freaking cute is Jack in the little army scene ? I don't know why but I'm like dying everytime it comes on he's adorable haha (I'm literally watching it as I'm typing I have a problem) love you xx
My gods that army scene did things to me.
And also, his eyes were so blue through like the entire video, it was mesmerizing.
But yes, yes we can talk about that video because it was PERFECT.
It was so Maynard like, that you can’t help but laugh. And they all looked so good! Plus the inclusion of some of the Brighton boys like Abe (I love Abe, he’s precious, and also, his tattoos…I’m obsessed), was great!
Getting to see Jack rap/sing is so different and attractive and perfect and I love it. We’re used to seeing Conor sing (altho he did just as amazing of a job), but it seemed to me like he was having more fun than other times, which is great to see!
And those boys and their acting was spot on. Dear gods I love that video….
GOD !!! something about young.k is truly so fucking holy, he’s actually the real jesus christ. I remember I first saw him n firstable, he was so hot but he seemed so cold but that literal scene in one of their behind the scenes where they CLARIFY that he is not cold…..n they show a scene of one of the members continuously zooming up on his face n hes like ‘omg stap it !!!! why do you keep zooming in !!!!!’ like wow………………holy shit I saw the light right then and there. then last night, me and my adventures of seeing him cry in their taiwanese showcase, brooooooooo what the fuck hes such an angel I don’t even know how to say it. theres this post on the day6 tag where its like ‘if you’re a day6 stan, you’re a brian stan’ n I get it now like I GET IT NOW !!!
