A Walk Among the Tombstones

Hmm…Neeson just ensures that the movie you’re about to see is of quality. Only he can wear such brown corduroy coat and look so amazingly glorious before all the action.

The plot is simple and classic; one you’d typically find during the 90’s but every minute of it just took me into this thriller ride that digs a pit in my stomach. I loved how less complicated it is and how it engages you. It showcases how the world can be so unforgiving and violent at any given time. And I’ve always like such movies; trying to figure out a psycho criminal mind.

It’s a 7 as I hoped it wouldn’t be Taken-esque. Neeson tried to scare the guy over the phone again, played detective and risked his life trying to save another kidnapped girl, so yeah, it could belong to the Taken Series.

Coffee Town

I wouldn’t have seen this movie if not for someone I call “Mr.” suggested that I see it. And now I’m thanking him for doing so. Thanks to him I had a good weekend night!

Talking about the movie, it’s pretty simple and plain but the script was beautifully made. The writer must be a genius or something! I liked how it was situated in a more relatable environment. Since I’m a big fan of coffee, I typically spend a lot of time in coffee shops. Whether I’m alone or not, rainy or sunny, sleepless or well rested, it’s always good to have  a cup of that addicting beverage in a nicely decorated area.

So losing that special place could be really upsetting. I know I won’t do something like what those 3 crazy idiots did but I will surely be sad over it.

Not to mention Groban’s appearance here; I never knew he’d consider being on the big screens! If I would pick my favorite scenes, it’d be the ones with him on it. Now I don’t know if I could take him seriously when he sings now.

This movie deserves a mighty 10. It is original, hilarious and not so mainstream. I love it! In addition to that Glenn Howerton’s eyes are oh-so pretty that I can’t leave it unsaid! So yeah! Now get out of here and watch it!

[KMovie] Commitment

TOP! Oh my, Choi Seung Hyun! (His image in Doom Dada pops in my head whenever I say his name!) Just knowing he’d be releasing another makes me ultramega giddy! But when it came out many fans were surprised by some nonsensical subtitles!

Well, nothing can stop VIPs like me, so I still went to watch it! And even with the sucky subtitles, I came to like the movie! TOP did really great here, such an amazing improvement in acting! Of course I cried in the end!

His acting made me believe he can be an innocent poor young man with a very very dark past and intentions. The dark part was kinda expected but poor and innocent? I don’t think so! I’ve never imagined him as someone so powerless. TOP’s charisma always demands control and authority.

This movie deserves a 9! One less point for that very unnecessary ending! (and sucky subtitles!)

[KMovie] No Breathing

As what I’ve posted before, I’ve never noticed Jong Suk even if I saw this earlier because I saw this movie all because of my beloved Seo In Guk! ( I didn’t just type ‘beloved’, didn’t I?)

My interest was piqued because it was all about swimming; my most favorite sport in the world! Another plus is that they shot some part of the movie in Davao, Philippines! Oh Yeah!

Seo In Guk didn’t fail in making me laugh in this movie! He’s always funny everywhere and at anything! (Now I can’t take his music videos seriously!)

I loved how the movie focused on friendship and sportsmanship. So inspiring and it made me more motivated to keep pushing forward.

I’ll give this a 10 if that ‘No Breathing’ technique is actually extant.

[KMovie] Hot Young Bloods

Every Park Bo Young movie I’ve seen has touched me like no other! First, the Werwolf Boy, and now this! I can very much relate to her personality here! (We’re pretty much the same!) She’s tough, feared and has got a bunch of pride up her sleeves. When love enters and it’s being threatened, I would probably feel the same; jealousy that can result to childish fights and acts.

But there’s a depth in every character here and I can’t say that this is not anywhere near innocent. It’s actually mature and a little bit dark.

This is the first time I took my time noticing Lee Jong Suk and his acting. I’ve seen him in a couple of movies but so far, this is his best.

I’ve always loved the high school life stories situated in old times and this one goes up on my favorite list!

10 out of 10 is what this one should have!

[KMovie] Tough as Iron

 

Aside from SungKyungKwan, this is one of Yoo Ah In’s best screen apprearances! (Well, for me..) The role suited him so well. That young man, who’s good at fighting and in desperate need for money for some heartbreaking family-related matters fitted him really well. Mother and child stories never get old for me, I loved how they showcased that unconditional love mothers can always give and the same for the children to their parents. Now I can’t wait to be one too!

I must commend his acting skills, seems like a making of another So Ji Sub! I totally look forward to more movies and drama series from him. I just wish he’d be good with picking out his future projects.

I’d be giving it another 9 here because I’m feeling so generous today! Haha! Just kidding! This movie deserves a good review because it is a good movie and I highly recommend it!

[KMovie] A Company Man

DISCLAIMER: This article CONTAINS SPOILERS, so if you’ve haven’t seen the movie, you might wanna skip this review for now!

I always believed that Ji Sub is fit for bad-ass-in-a-suit roles and this movie showcases that a lot. It’s not the first time but being the hitman he is in this movie just made him look more glorious and irresistible. And not to mention Dong Joon! Oh my Dong Joon!

But dilemmas are always brought in by women. Falling in love can turn any sane man into someone who you wouldn’t imagine him to be or maybe vice versa. The fight scenes showed Ji Sub’s strengths and expertise. I can’t say anything about his looks because it’s already given that his look can kill!

The film is absolutely amazing, the writer did an awesome job here for that fantastic ending! Totally amazing! I recommend that you see it for yourself and be the judge!

I’ll give it 9.5/10 plainly because they killed my beloved Dong Joon and Ji Sub! How can they think of doing that??? OMG!
