[KMovie] Commitment

09aae67531254a47a43b8832587958d6

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!

[KMovie] Tone Deaf Clinic

This movie must have gotten to most women who are trying everything to change something just to be qualified and accepted by their loved ones. Well it surely got into to me, right to the very core!

Many people keep on saying that you should just be who you really are and if that person doesn’t accept you then just move on because he’s not the one for you. This could be the mentality of a lazy person, that’s why I think otherwise. Sometimes love doesn’t come to you like a fruit that would just drop from a tree, there are times you’d have to go up and pick it yourself. for me love is something you can achieve after working hard for it, that way it’s more precious and meaningful to me.

This is where changing one’s self comes in. You change something in you in a hope that your love can be one-sided no more. This way, you can proudly say that you did something and you won’t regret anything later. I hate regrets the most. I just think it’s the most useless feeling in the world.

I don’t see anything wrong with trying to improve yourself for someone else because at the end of the day, it is you who improved, isn’t?

Yoon Sang Hyun was so awesome in this (though he looked really smelly in here), there’s no doubt about that! I just wish I could have seen this movie with better subtitles. I’m giving it a 9 out of 10!

[KMovie] Old Boy

It was really my brother who recommended this film to me and he uploaded a copy into my hard drive. I saw the movie like 6 months later.

On the first minutes of it, I was like “Oh well, it’s another crazy, unexplainable movie..”. I thought it was something like Lady Vengeance or The Housemaid but suspense and curiosity slowly creeped in when more unexplainable things started to happen. I wanted it to be over and solved soon and then BANG! That twist in the end just slapped me like no other! It’s insane and so twisted that I never expected it! Geez! It’s absolutely crazy! Like dark, terribly crazy! I know it’s possible to happen in real life but c’mon now! That’s revenge in it’s highest form.

I can’t give any ratings as I’m still pondering whether it’s crazy good or it’s just plainly insane.

If you like dark and deep movies, this is highly recommended. Go see for yourself and give me any feedback as to decide whether it was good or no. My brother says it was good (being a filmmaker that he is, he loves this kind of unusually plotted movies..).
