Oh yeah, Taito, I almost came close to forgetting you. But no more :D (also: Daisuke/Wallace is is a thing imo. I mean: “Don’t go in there alone.” and W: “I want to see Miyako’s face again." D: “Look at MY face!”)
I present you: Eurovision 2013
Eurovision is the best fucking thing in the world ok
So, here’s a short review on my last, let’s say, five hours. You could also call it the “revelation regarding Digimon: The Movie” and it’s all thanks to the-eponine. Thanks, dear, for basically
blowing my mind throwing my knowledge about the Digimon movie(s) out of the window.
As you may know, if you read the wikipedia article on Digimon: The Movie - which I, by the way, didn’t until some hours ago because why should I? - the american movie/version of the movie is an adaption of three japanese movies.Like, what?! (My brain is still working on that information, like, why?)
What’s interesting, though, is how much the original movies differ from the american one (or at least, I found it quite interesting).
1. Okay, since the story is somewhat different, they changed the dialogues - a lot. I think the most changes were made in the third movie because everything is different. The reason for Chocomon’s aggresive behaviour (hmm, I guess it’s similar in a way, but still very different in my opinion), why they meet Wallace, why they fight Chocomon and ungh. But I digress. What I wanted to point out was, that there is absolutely no running commentary like in the american version. No explanation about what’s happening or why things are probably happening - nothing like that.
2. The music/background music. In the american version there was always (like 98% of the time) some sort of background music while in the original movie it was quiet; and if there was background music it was more often than not some kind of lift music :D Nonetheless the scenes were just as emotional as the ‘american’ one’s,
3. I didn’t watch the series in japanese/english dubs so I don’t know if this is a thing, but I’m still used to a running commentary on every move the digimons do. Like, when they evolve - they comment on it/say who evolves into whom; when they attack they say/scream the attack’s title/name while attacking and so on. They don’t do this is the original movies. It’s funny :D and still unusual to me.
So basically I was totally weirded out, then enthusiastic and now I’m just asdfghjkl.
Now I’m going to watch Revenge of Diaboromon/Diablomon Strikes Back.
Sudden surge of affection for persons who threatened someone for me :’)
I thought it would be helpful to track A.R.G.U.S’ manhunt for Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot. So I decrypted their communication logs. Which means, I just hacked a federal agency. Kind of makes me a cyber-terrorist, which is bad because I really don’t see myself fitting in well at Guantanamo Bay.
Sometimes I forget how old Buffy is and then I see a laptop.
I only watched the first two minutes of the original (japanese) Digimon movie and my mind is already blown! Holy cow! How much did they cut out!
Wait till you get to the third part.
First five minutes and all I can think is
