I've just watched THIS. oh the pretty pretty slashiness....


ETA: Link to an ebay seller

And it's wonderful. Fantastically well filmed, incredible sets, amazing costumes - cast of 1000's to recreate the evacuation of Shanghai in the 1930's and on top of all that a really REALLY slashy friendship between John Lone as Fong/Billy and Adrian Pasdar (Heroes) as Dawson.

Pasdar gets very nekkid in the first half hour, kidnapped, stripped and plonked into a hot tub with John Lone (who has an amazing arse) - there's no overt mention that they are having a relationship, but one of the gang bosses has a "little friend" and it's fairly well assumed that Dawson and Fong are "partners" PLUS in the bathhouse - in Dawson's POV the camera pans down Fong's body and concentrates on his arse makes it bloody obvious to me. And with Dawson having a bitch fit at Fong's wedding...

And the ending !   *blubbers inconsolably*  Incredibly romantic. *Erastes bawls.*

I had a version that was all in Chinese, (I bought it from China) but I think some versions might have English in them.

Well worth a look if you can get hold of it.  Oh and the music will really get under your skin too.

As [livejournal.com profile] ataniell93 puts it: "This is not subtext. This text is nothing like sub. It is so dominant it is standing there in a Japanese soldier's uniform whipping the fucking plot for its own jollies."

I've been at home today. I got to work and my mother (who has been ignoring me for 2 weeks, on one of her normal moods) phoned and said that she had to go into hospital and would I look after the dogs. Of course I said yes, (because I'm a nice person and won't take umbrage that she's treated me like shit for months).

But oMG what a day. Aslan was no problem at all - he knows about cats, he knows Lili and she was really pleased to see him.  The Snucius had legged it up stairs and I thought... "well that's probably best, I'll keep them up there, out of the way." D4 thought Lili was hilarious and spent an hour rushing around her barking and growling, but Lili, being completely used to dogs just sat there and ignored him completely. So cool.

After an hour or so (typical, they are scared of nothing) the Snucius sauntered downstairs, (I could almost imagine their languid discussion about tactics) and we had a very tense half hour while I taught D4 that agressive behaviour to cats was Not Allowed.  The Snucius were wonderful, after they realised that D4 was not allowed to attack them they were positively SMUG and lay around on the floor with practised casualness like a couple of lions.  It did D4 a lot of good as he suddenly realised that he wasn't the King of the World like he thought he was. Suddenly he was outnumbered, and he spent his time hiding behind me. He will be a LOT more respectful of cats in future, I'll warrant.

In other non-furry news - has anyone seen the trailer for The 300?  *dies of the lust*  It looks incredible, however I don't think there is any historical accuracy as to the relationships within the 300... (sadly) but I don't know. After last night's film, I'm beginning to think that gay is the new black. *hopes*
