movies seen in october

I’m glad we’re not getting a Season 2 this year

I’ve seen people disappointed about the movie, and wanting a Season 2 in October.

My perspective is… This is the BEST NEWS THAT I HAVE HEARD in this fandom, hallelujah.

The biggest enemy that Yuri on Ice has always had is its own success. When your show is basically printing money in DVD and merchandise sales, you can bet that the higher ups are breathing down your neck. Do more. Do it now. Do it faster. If you find a goose that lays golden eggs, by all means, make that thing lay as fast as it freaking can, and while you’re at it, can you make those eggs any bigger?

I have seen success absoutely ruin amazing shows/series/book series/etc. Over and over and over again.

This is particularly true when the show/series/book series has a strong romantic subplot, as Yuri on Ice does. That’s because often, in order to keep people who are invested in the romance invested, shows tend to do one of two things: 1. Keep people from getting together long after any reasonable person could imagine that they’d be apart, or 2. Add ridiculous drama to keep splitting them apart and then getting them back together.

I trust Kubo and Yamamoto. I don’t for one second trust bean counters. And I absolutely do NOT want to see someone splitting up Yuri and Victor in nonorganic ways just to keep some unnaturally stupid tension. Yuri on Ice was magical because it was made with love–every aspect of it–and every time the show surprised us, it was with how much more love was in the show than we’d ever imagined. But it is hard to manage that fine line between enough internal tension to move the story forward and that love that makes Yuri on Ice utterly magical.

When I heard details about the production, I could sense that love. They traveled to every venue, constructed the story around what was actually possible. The spirit of everywhere they went to pervades each scene. You can line up shots of where they were with anime scenes. The way they constructed characters, their skates, the music for their skates, how it all fits together to tell an overarching story about love in all its forms, something that is utterly compelling and yet lacks villains. Even details like putting the wedding rings on the right hand. This is storytelling at its very damned best, at every level, and I’m on my knees to it.

And you want them to do what they did in years for season 1 in a matter of months? It’s not possible. Not with the site visits. Not with needing to construct characters with respect and love. Not with commissioning music. Kubo was talking on Twitter today about visiting Mexico, and the idea of her taking Leo’s heritage as a Mexican American so seriously, and with such respect, in a time when Mexican-Americans are being absolutely vilified in this country, makes me almost weepy. That is what I want–that love, that respect for what they do.

The very, very worst thing that could happen to Yuri on Ice is for the second season to be made with money in mind rather than love. I would rather have no second season than to see someone push this show to become more “mainstream” (read: toning down the queerness, fuck that), or for them to not have the time to develop a story line that continues season 1 with the mastery and the love that made it so special.

The fact that they’re taking their time is the best thing I could have heard. We can get it fast or we can get it good. There’s plenty of media out there that comes out fast. There’s a reason this one was special. Everyone who wants something fast, well, there’s plenty of crap out there–feel free to be a fan of it.

Have a little patience, and trust the people who brought you this piece of genius, who have every financial incentive to take as much money as possible. If they say you’re not getting a season 2 this year, you better believe that it’s because they can’t do it well.

Two years may sound like an eternity, but a crappy season is the thing that actually lasts forever.

Old movie: the Hunt for Red October

I’ve never seen or heard of this one. I’ll have to look into this. It looks like it was made in 1990? Haha this sounds really stupid and weird but my standards for an “old movie” is a movie made before like, 1965 lol. My ideas of “old” are warped, but I’m sure this is a good movie. Thanks for the recommendation!!

October 27th, 2014

One of the best horror movies of last year.  The true story of a family seeking help from Ed and Lorraine Warren after being terrorized by the ghost of an old woman in their home.  Some of the story has been tweaked a bit for the movie, but Lorraine Warren said that it is pretty accurate to the actual story.  The actual house itself, being over 150 years old, is sitting on a gigantic plot of land where many suicides and murders have taken place.  The old woman who is said to haunt the house, Bathsheba Sherman, one of the previous owners from the 1800’s, was known for killing her children before the census taker would come by.  This made it to where no one knew she even had children.  One notable incident was her sacrificing her baby in front of the fire place by driving a big sewing needle through its head.  Her gravestone is in the old cemetery in town, it has since been cracked by an unidentifiable source.

This film also introduces the Annabelle doll which was made into a movie this year.  Some of that story is also true as these are both based off of the Warrens actual case files.  The real doll, however is an old 70’s Raggedy Ann doll. 

The movie itself is very well done, but the back story makes it that much better so check both out. 

Original Annabelle Doll, The cast with the actual family, the real Ed and Lorraine Warren and Bathsheba’s gravestone seen in pictures.
