Save the Green PlanetI don't like the f-word. I have never said it in my life, or have tried not to, mostly because I am deeply uncomfortable with my body and its processes. But now a cruel rumor that I had hoped was not true has come to pass and I must accept that this word will not only appear on this blog numerous times, but I may even wind up watching the movie in question. To those gentle souls who are too sensitive for this kind of thing I bid you a fond farewell, my lace hankey wafting in the breeze.


I am a big fan of Jang Joon-Hwan's SAVE THE GREEN PLANET and even did publicity work on it when it came to the US, courtesy of Koch Lorber. It's an amazing movie and I will always love it, no matter what happens. I had heard rumors that the superhero movie Director Jang was locked in a hotel room re-writing involved the f-word but now a poster in the comments section of this site has not only confirmed this info, but started a blog about Director Jang's new film.

Director Jang's new film called FARTMAN.

In the spirit of Howard Stern, the guy's superpower is super-flatulence.

I...I have to stop typing now.

sorry I just didn't get your humor here... some of the key sentences didn't even make sense to me.

I wish I liked that movie. If that makes any sense...

Any absence of sense is due to the shock and horror I feel that the director of one of my favorite movies is making a film about farting. Is this the end of civilization?

Well, it wouldn't be the first time Jang Joon-Hwan ended civilization. I'm more worried about how Howard Stern's lawyers will feel about this. Not expecting a US release this time out... unless Stern is involved with this somehow, which I doubt pretty strongly.

Well, I thought it was a funny post. I also loved StGP, and am decidedly uneasy about this Fartman project.

Not too worried about Howard Stern, though. Did he actually invent and/or copyright the idea of a Fartman? Fartman has been a treasured notion in the hearts of children the world over for decades, probably.

Gee, Grady. Are you sure "Fartman" is going to be that bad? I'm picturing every scene of flatulence from Yasujiro Ozu's "Good Morning" combined with the green screen technology of "Casshern". That sounds golden to me. As golden as purple tigerskin three piece suit.

Finally. Save was the most exciting movie of the last years and I would watch anything this guy does next. And honestly, the synopsis of Save sounds equally silly...
