Sugasm 136 & Hot Yurt Love!

[Okay, so it’s a few hours later, I’ve seen the movie, I’m disappointed, check the comments for more, but read my hyped anticipation first. 😛 ]
Oh, colour my broke ass elated, minions! GayBoy rang earlier to alert me to a stunning development brought on by the generosity of a customer: Free passes to see Mongol!
Now, if you haven’t heard of Mongol yet (trailer), it’s the cinematic tale of Genghis Khan’s life. It’s apparently to Asian cinema what Braveheart is to Western cinema. Giggle! In case you’ve never gotten the memo, Genghis Khan was the greatest military leader the world’s ever known, and had conquered more of the known worlds than any other military leader in history.
And I know I don’t wax poetic about all things Mongolian on here, (I mean, geez, you have better things to read) but I cannot WAIT to see this movie and I’m so excited I get to see an advance screening.
I wrote about the movie longingly last week on my other blog, in what I think’s a pretty fun posting:

And, get this: I think it has Tuvan throat-singing on the score.
I mean, does it get better? Mongolian horse riders, sword-fighting, lance-fighting, Mongolian justice, hot yurt love, and funny hats? AND throat-singing? Holy fucking bonanza, Batman! Gimme more!

Anyhow, I have nothing of value to write about today, except that my apartment’s almost clean, I’m going to spend a rapt and wonderful night embroiled in the drama of ancient Mongolian conquerors and flashy big cinema, and that’s that. (I’m such a movie geek!)
But I’d like to send a shout out to anyone affected by the floods down in the USA right now. Here’s hoping Mother Nature lends all y’all a hand. Geez.
Here’s this week’s Sugasm; eat some, you’ll feel better:

    Mongol: We came, we saw, we were glad it was free.

    However… I really want to see it on DVD, because I bet the other hour of needed movie will be there.

    Every time things started to get going, it would suddenly cut away from the action to some slow, stilted scene, and it’d voiceover/subtitle into a new era, and, finally, when this happened at the big battle scene, I just sputtered aloud in the theatre, “What?” and GB snickered.

    But, seriously, the bones to this movie are fantastic, but it’s like it’s made as a 3-hour epic for Asia but got gutted into a 2-hour movie for North America. There are some seriously big gaps. It doesn’t work.

    It’s not like it’s innovative editing and I’m missing something in translation, no, they’ve just completely removed, it seems, entire scenes of the movie. Like it goes from an exiled Temujin (Genghis’ real name, spelled about 12 ways, but all sounding like Temujin) praying to suddenly him being the leader of this massive army and it’s about to fight to unify all of Mongolia and, you’re like, “But how the fuck did we get HERE? What about the 2 years of army-building before this?”

    Like I said to Gayboy, “Well, I’m glad I saw it, but I’m thrilled I didn’t pay”–

    And that SUCKS because this is a Lord-of-the-Rings kinda thing where they apparently shot the trilogy over the course of a year, back to back. I want to love this movie, and if I ever see a director’s cut that makes it all make sense, then I’ll be thrilled.

    But I can’t in good conscience recommend anyone see it, because they fucked the editing up far too much for it to make sense. Sigh. Bah! Stupid editors!

    Less wolf, editor, more battle! Fuckin’ people.

    Oh, and if you want to see it for the epic battle scenes…

    Wait for the DVD. It’s the battle scenes they kept cutting away from inexplicably. Like, WHAT? It’d be like Braveheart showing you half of every battle, then cutting completely away for no reason at all. Hello, pacing, anyone? Anyone? No? Resolution? No?

    Or maybe that’s the Russian way. No resolution for you!

    (Directed by a Russian, crewed by probably half Russkies too.)

    I don’t think the film needed long battle scenes, after all we know what the outcome was but I do think some of the chopping and cutting was unnecessary.

    It’s not the greatest film every made but photographically it is a beautiful piece of cinema. I do think that there has been an over abundance of films with long battle scenes over the past few years and it was nice that this film didn’t put too much emphasis on the battles.

    I do think the film could have made more emphasis on why after fighting against Temudjin men would join up with him. It was touched but only barely. This I feel was more important to his rise in power than how the early battles were won. I do think if there was a film made of his latter life the battles outwith Mongolia, ie in China and elsewhere, then the battle scenes would have been of more prominence.

    Thanks for the rundown. Sorry it didn’t do it for you in the theater, and I hope the DVD works better.

    I’ll be keeping an eye out for it.

    Scots– Yeah, I love beautiful cinematography… I have to, I have photojournalism under my belt, and yeah, it’s beautiful in this film…

    But I think not everyone does know all the history re Genghis Khan. I certainly don’t. Why was it a battle to unite Mongolia? How did the battle come to happen? How did Genghis amass the men — and not just “slaughter for me and I’ll only keep 10% of the take” but just the actual amassing of these guys, you know?

    It wasn’t complete, there was no transition, there was too little linear thought for a movie that’s clearly intending on moving in a linear fashion.

    I liked it, but I’m more disappointed than I am satisfied, and I dislike feeling that way. So…

    Yeah, there wasn’t enough about him as a leader on an interpersonal level. No one gets to such a position without being able to rally people and motivate them, and nothing was shown as to why or how people would feel inspired by Temudjin. It was really frustrating.

    The obvious parallel is Braveheart. There, you knew why men were willing to die for him, but you don’t get that sense with Mongol. Sigh.
