Thank you!

If you’re going to read just one wonderful Adventure Time write-up today (and you should), make it this one by Maria Bustillos. In it, she talks with the key creative gang of Pen, Adam, Pat, Kent, Rebecca, Nick, and Jack, making for a fairly definitive overview of the series. Read it here. Thanks, Maria!

The resolution of each eleven-minute episode is anything but tidily triumphant; each one is as likely to end on a question or a joke as on an answer. Yet one comes away satisfied, a little bit the way one might at a David Lynch movie. The narrative is endlessly malleable, and includes all the possibilities granted by the existence of wizards and magical creatures, time travel, and a huge, ever-evolving cast. It’s a canvas and a story big enough for dozens of artists to make their own way. Even the drawing style is inconsistent, handmade-feeling; longtime fans may learn to detect the hand or voice of a favorite storyboard artist or writer. The goal of the show seems to be exploration, not uniformity.

Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner

Speaking of movies, this is basically Inuit Beowulf.

It was written, produced, directed, and acted entirely by Inuit people. I think a lot of people might be interested in Medieval Inuit art and literature, and this is a pretty great example.

You can watch and download the entire trilogy here for free (but donate if you can!!!); Atanarjuat is the first film and takes place around 1000 A.D.-ish. It also won a LOT of awards. Keep in mind: it’s entirely in Inuktitut, with English subtitles.

it’s a stunning movie

I’ve now finished watching the entire trilogy, and I have to say that all three films are mind-blowingly amazing.

Make sure you have a box of tissues, though because they will leave you pretty weepy.

I’ve watched it saturday und it is absolutely fascinating to see ancient inuits through the eyes of modern inuits !

Oh, absolutely! I love how they created the script, with double-checking on the action and the dialogue, and different elders pointing out small inconsistencies like, “Oh, no, they wouldn’t have spoken to each other at that point, it was illegal back then.” I love that they tried to make it as historically accurate as possible.

Video Interviews with the cast are available too.

Additional cool thing: the company that created this trilogy, Isuma, has since transformed their website into an indigenous people’s web TV channel. So what sites like ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, ScrewAttack, and the Escapist are for geeky pursuits, IsumaTV attempting to be for indigenous creators. 

Check them out, they’re pretty cool. 

^^I didn’t know that! Amazing!!

A few years ago the director, Zacharias Kunuk, also made the first documentary to discuss climate change from the perspective of the Inuit, focusing on their own traditional body of knowledge regarding the environment. It’s called Qapirangajuq: Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change and can be found here.

I am absolutely going to watch that, and wanted to reblog so others can have the opportunity to do so. Thank you!

For me, and maybe for some of you, I think my loyalty and bulldog-like grip stems in part from being a geek and having to defend what I love on a regular basis. I don’t have to do that as much as I did years ago, but I’m always on guard and ready to tell someone how and why Star Wars is so much more than a movie to me. Those kinds of passionate feelings can lead to loving a franchise blindly, and while deep devotion isn’t bad, it can lead to poor storytelling. If fans will lap up anything and everything regardless of quality, is it fair to expect studios to put in the effort to make it consistently excellent? When I had that realization, I started looking at television differently. And man, it seems like we let less than awesome material drag on and on for the sake of our fandom.
