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!

[Movie] This is the End!


Remember how I mentioned earlier that I will do some James Franco Movie Marathon? Now I happen to land on this site that features this movie and I’m sure glad I did!

It was totally hilarious! They got the perfect blend of casts! If I could spend my last days on earth with James ‘freaking’ Franco that would be the awesomest last day of my life!

Despite the comedy, the movie left some lessons to live by. Selflessness can get you to heaven! It doesn’t matter how big or how small you helped others sincerely but what’s important is that you actually did it and you never asked for anything in return!

I’ll give this movie an 8 out of 10! they did kill James again but it was called for plus, Channing Tatum’s cameo appearance was very unexpected and extremely mind-boggling! Sheesh!

[KMovie] Secretly Greatly


Hmmm.. what can I say? It’s another great great job from my dear “Sam Dong”.

I was lurking around GoodDrama, looking for a good watch and then my eyes landed on this title! It shocked me because I wasn’t anticipating it at all. I thought the movie would be shown not this soon but incredibly lucky for me to be able to avoid the wait and watch it leisurely with subtitles. (That’s totally the opposite of what I experienced with “Werewolf Boy”)

The movies is an all star cast! Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Hyun Woo and Park Ki Woong is the perfect combo! Soo Hyun played his role really well, it’s like the upgraded version of Song Sam Song from Dream High! I came to love him from acting adorably stupid! Our Hyun Woo on the other hand, has grown up so much and I can see he’s challenging himself to take on more mature and serious roles and I want to see him more on many other roles! As for Ki Woong, I can always expect the best from him.

What amazed me the most about the movie is Kim Soo Hyun flashed a six-pack abs! OMG! I can’t believe it! He has improved so much. Comedy and Drama has been his forte throughout his career but now Action? I’m so excited on what he’ll take on next! He just keeps getting better and better at everything!


Disclaimer: The next paragraphs contain spoilers, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, you might wanna skip this.

All in all I’m rating the movie 9 out of 10! (All because of the six-pack abs!!! *kidding!) It’s given that Korean Movies are always in high quality, the casting was really really amazing, and most of all the story line is interesting that it made me sit at the edge of my seat.

The only thing that turned me off is the ending! Yeah, for most movies, ending always does it! I didn’t liked how all the main characters died. The whole point of the movie seemed lost because of it. I don’t see any reason why it was better that they all died. It would have been more meaningful if they all lived and stayed at the village together with everybody else! It’ll teach us that life is all about choices. You can always choose how you live your life.

Here’s the Trailer!
