First off, thank you for making me a vid! I love vids, and quite honestly I would be happy to see a vid in any of these fandoms. I have suggested music for some of them, but please don't feel bound by what I've suggested, and I have no qualms about oft-vidded songs, either. And while a lot of these fandoms are very close to my heart, I will be very happy to see vids for them regardless of anything.I Capture the Castle (2003)
I just read the book, and the movie does quite a good job of it. I love the zaniness of the family (Topaz is my secret favorite), and also Cassandra of course. Any vid from this movie would be great.The Handmaiden (2016)
What I said: "Yup, absolutely anything from this movie would be amazing." What I meant: If you can somehow correct for the extreme male gaze of the movie, that would be amazing. While I did like the movie, the less said about the sex scenes, the better.The Golden Compass (2007)
Aesthetically, I thought the movie was all right, especially once it got out of Oxford and got into the North. I've never really cared for (or about) Roger, but I would love any vid from this source, as the books are some of my favorites of all time. My Philp Pullman tag
has a few scattered public thoughts on the book(s). This is what I said about the movie when I saw it in Kyoto nine years ago:
I thought it was an entirely creditable adaptation of, on balance, a rather difficult book to turn into cinema. I had a quarrel with where they ended the movie, though I can understand why they took it only that far instead of to where the book ends, but some things were really well done--the armored bears, for instance, and I particularly liked the witches as well (Eva Green is so awesome). Of course when Ragnur's jaw got TORN OFF there was absolutely no blood, but I suppose I should be used to this happening in children's fantasy movies by now. Come to think of it, I can't really say there was that much blood in "The Lord of the Rings" movies either. I thought the production design looked a lot more organic and less strange than it seemed in the previews, and props to Derek Jacobi on general principles for being amazing.Harriet the Spy (1996)
I'm not sure how good a movie this is, really, or how good an adaptation, but I adore Harriet and I would love a vid about her.
