thanks! when i checked the other day they only had aimless bullet.
anyone watched any of these yet? how are the subs?
Thanks for sharing this, pretty damn awesome!
ahahahaha they have io island. someone please recommend some stuff as i don’t recognize most of these
picture quality fair, subs decent
Cool, they have Under the Sky of Seoul which I’ve been wanting to see for quite some time.
What’s going on with Kinship, 2,560 views? just checked subs on Seaside Village and Evergreen Tree I want to watch those two
ahh i see road to the racetrack!
Also excited for the other Kim Ki Young films and the handful of Im Kwon Taek
Watching films on youtube totally kills the film. Don’t do it!
I agree with MubiUser, although life’s a bitch and it’s often the only way of viewing. Haven’t seen much of classic South Korea (although have seen some Kim Ki Young), but contemporary directors such as Kim Ki-Duk and Park Chan-Wook do tickle my fancy.
because there are so many other ways to see these films. not watching the film not only kills the film, it obliterates its existence. i’ll take youtube castration any day, and apply the interactive medicine of my head.
meg i really liked seashore village! it’s like a less nutty, prettier io island. the women are great.
TwoDeadMagpies, you’ve gotta admit, watching 2001: A Space Odyssey on youtube = infinite sadness.
i’ve never seen 2001! sooooooo………….i can remain a happy little bunny?
Stay gold, Ponyboy.
what’s a ponyboy?
I’m just quoting some crappy Coppola adaptation, but please don’t watch movies on youtube. Everytime you do, a little puppy dies.
Oh yeah, because 2001 is so absolutely unavailable and people are watching it on youtube everywhere. More than half these films will probably never find a good enough market to be allowed a dvd release, so why let these films float in oblivion when they’re made readily available to us right now. Physical media is slowly dying so while everyone is sitting at home watching they’re Kubricks on blu-ray, others are gaining a more expansive cinematic knowledge any way they can with films that are often more vital to the cinema than anything that you can pick up at your local walmart bargain bin.
these puppies? ;)
i think i’ll continue to watch films on youtube, if now only to innure myself against grotesque sentimentalism.
anyway i’m excited about seeing these korean films however i have to do it! a hometown in heart!
EAT THEM!! EAT THE PUPPIES!!!
@Tommy, I was just trying to simply illustrate the detrimental effect youtube has a on a film. I’ve already acknowledged the fact that sometimes there is no other option.
And magpies, do as you please. Just promise me you’ll stay a happy bunny.
All viewing outside of a theatrical format is detrimental to a film.
I know, but Blu-Ray>DVD>youtube. Amirite?
tks for tip on Seashore, I’m on holidays so going to indulge
To me, it makes no difference.
I guess you and I are too very different people.
I can’t believe I mispelled “two”. My life is going downhill.
For me I rather skip watching the film if it’s on youtube. You just see another version of it, maybe 30% of the experience.
well … a big monitor, a bean bag, a glass of red and some chocolate if that’s a 30% experience I’ll settle for that over not seeing it at all any day – it’s much better now they’re not in parts, the first film I saw on youtube was the mother and the whore, 14 parts which was bothersome
