Watching The Red Shoes, because our lovely Mona spoke highly of it, and yay, 'tis wonderfully creepy. Korea is right up there with Japan in their ability to make good horror movies.

But, for those of you who have seen I going color-blind, or are those shoes actually pink?

I can't wait for my new glasses to be ready...

I noticed that too!

They are pink, they are very pink. And no one seems to point this out throughout the whole duration of the movie.

It leaves me very confused.

Hmm. Well, thank you, at least I know it's not just me.

Also, those shoes never match what anyone's wearing. :)

OOOOOOOH you're watching it!!! Goody goody goody goody goody. It iiiisss good, isn't it?

The Korean translation actually is "The Pink Shoes" but the US title just made them red. :D

Aha, so that's it! Thank you, Livi-Pants. It was pretty awesome...I've seen a lot of Asian horror, but still, that was a mindfuck. :)

Oooooh, if you liked that one, I think you'll like Bunshinsaba. Also a mindfuck. Last time I checked it was still on youtube. But thaaaat one's good. :D Includes posession that makes people put plastic bags drenched in gasoline over their heads and light them on fire. Oh my.
Thursday, August 5th, 2010 01:36 pm (UTC)
DUDE. Must check out. :)

Saw it, and indeed, 'twas a mindfuck. GAH, what a horrible way to die. Also, I want every female character's hair. SO SHINY.

I LUV YOU, KOREA. Not as much as Japan, but y'know. :)

Thank you Livi-Pants!

When I watched the movie I also asked myself the same thing xD

Anyway... I'll never look at pink high heels shoes the same way again. And please, someone smack that creepy little girl Dx

I'm really glad I don't wear high heels. :)

She was kind of creepy...and sheesh, what a brat.

Yes, yes they are pink. Also, why do I watch horror movies when I know they give me nightmares?

Oooooh, a Korean horror movie that include shoes that are pink? I really need to check that out!

Well, that and see how many Korean words I can understand...I'm so easily entertained that way. XP

Cloud: Horror! Guts! Mind-fuckering! Yay!! *claps hands together in glee*

Seph: *smiles and pats Cloud's head*

Uh, yeah, won't go there for now.
Saturday, August 7th, 2010 02:45 pm (UTC)
Cloud! *laughs* No bad words! :)

HEEEEY, no fair, you get to actually understand some of what they say!

Watched it.....O.o WTF, JUST WTF! O.O I was horrified and so into it....It was sorta beautiful at the same time, too and gods what is wrong with my race?! Brilliant acting though.

Pink shoes....those were DEFINETELY pink shoes. But it's called Red Shoes due to the blood. Symbolism and all that English shite.

Really great movie!

If you liked that, may I direct you (as lovely Mona did for me) to one on YouTube called Bunshinsaba? It's total insanity and people lighting themselves on fire.

Only Korea comes close to Japan for horror movies. Have you ever seen A Tale of Two Sisters? One of the best horror movies EVAH. I am officially scared to ever go to Korea.

Hmmmmm, this is kinda off topic, but have you seen Mononoke? It's pretty fun and slightly creepy. *shudders* Fishbaby.

Anyway, I haven't seen it so I really can't offer much in the way of actually discussing the movie, but I looked up some pictures of the shoes. You're not going colorblind, they're definitely pink.
Sunday, August 8th, 2010 12:47 am (UTC)
I knew it!

Where have you been, girl? Or is it classified?

Mononoke, no, but it sounds familiar. Will it completely disturb me? I'm on a weird, Asian horror, make myself afraid to sleep kind of kick. :)

I've been without internet because my laptop went and died on me. *scowls* I finally got a new one, though! *grins*

Probably not, I got through it fairly easily, then again, I got through Silent Hill without much of a problem (that wasn't having to do with the camera) so I don't know how good of a judge I am. But Cloudy's voice is the main character! ^-^ Some bits were kinda disturbing *cough*fishbaby*cough* but it was mostly just fun.
Sunday, August 8th, 2010 09:28 pm (UTC)
Cloudy's voice? *squee* Then we must see it!

Cloud: "I have another cousin! Oooh, hi Amaya! Did you miss meeeee?"
Sunday, August 8th, 2010 11:56 pm (UTC)
Of course I missed you! *grins* How could I not? And how is the rest of the choir?
Monday, August 9th, 2010 01:02 pm (UTC)
Cloud: *bounce*

Choir is good. Did you hear Genesis has a boyfriend? :)
Monday, August 9th, 2010 02:41 pm (UTC)
Yes. Sage, wasn't it?
Monday, August 9th, 2010 04:52 pm (UTC)
Genesis: *beam* "Yes indeed, my Sagey."
Zack: "Genesis has been all monogamous lately. It's freaking me out."

He makes you happy then? I'm glad. And if he breaks your heart I'm more than happy to help you hide the body. ^-^
