《Tonight's choices》 ▪Rewatching = 🇰🇵 1985 #Pulgasari
Tonight am gonna be cheesy, this is one of the few #NorthKorean
fantasy films and with a kaiju!
This film is a cult classic for them, didn't see the light of other asian countries till '98 and US till '06 , what I find more interesting is that their leader was a huge fan of #Gojira
), so he tricked the whole original staff into going there, even the actor who wore Godzilla's suit; so they made all special effects for the movie. Besides the director and his wife (both South Koreans) were kidnapped years prior to make films for him (including this one) but a few years later they escaped and now this movie is banned in NK.
It's based in the legend of #Bulgasari
, but supposedly was intended to be a propaganda metaphor for the effects of unchecked capitalism and the power of the collective.
Obviously fx and performances are according to the country and the year it was made, but am gonna admit that baby Pulgasari it's freaking adorable 🤣 and he sounds like a squeaky toy.
Well, this film is for curious ones.
"In feudal #Korea
, the evil King becomes aware that there is a peasant rebellion being planned in the country. He steals all the iron farming tools and cooking pots from the people so that he may make weapons to fend off the peasant army. After he returns the property to the people, an old blacksmith is imprisoned and starved to death. His last creation is a tiny figurine of a monster- Pulgasari, a Godzilla-like creature that eats iron. The blood of his daughter brings the creature to life, and fights with the poor, starving peasants to overthrow the corrupt monarchy." ▪New = 🇺🇸 2018 #BeforeSomeoneGetsHurt
Guess we are gonna start seeing this concept a lot.
"Tim and his team are the rising stars of the ghost hunting game. One thing they all like better than a good haunt is a great prank. When the team arrives at a new investigation, they cannot figure if the occurrences are part of some elaborate master prank or if the house is actually haunted. Unfortunately, they don't find the answer until it is far too late."
