Drops of Jupiter

I'm a 28 year old British woman who works as a Bibliographic Data Assistant. I'm also an aspiring author.

Expect to find a lot of fandom-related things here (mainly anime/manga for now) and whatever else catches my interest.

If you want to talk to me about anything (within reason - no personal questions please!), then the best thing to do is to send me an ask message. I'm not on Tumblr much during the week because I work full-time, but I'll try to respond ASAP.

Dear Tumblr,

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.

This.

Movie.

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.
