update on parallelsfic
I went ahead and put in some nominations for , with a specific eye toward variety: one Hong Kong source (The Bride with White Hair, an awesome old-school kung fu fantasy flick), one Korean (The Good, the Bad, the Weird, a crazy 1930s Western), one Indian (the Ramayana, because it’s a more manageable epic than the Mahabharata), and one Japanese (K-20: The Fiend With Twenty Faces, aka the alternate-history Art-Deco-punk superhero movie I keep meaning to make a post about). In general I tried to go with the theme of “crazy fun;” the only reason I nominated the Ramayana instead of Om Shanti Om was that somebody had already beaten me to the latter. 🙂
Anyway, I still don’t know for sure if I’ll be participating; you’re required to offer four sources, and so far — apart from my own nominations — there’s only barely enough things listed that I feel I know well enough to write. But nominating isn’t a commitment to participate, so I figured why not.
Nominations are open until the 25th.
