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.

[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!

[Movie] 3 Days to Kill

One day, I decided to join my mother with her addiction to action, thriller and horror movies and I happen to see this movie that day!

Kevin Costner…hmmm..of course I was expecting it to be amazing and I wasn’t disappointed. With all that problems he’s facing; that one man can survive is truly motivating. Illegal arms trafficker, a brain cancer, estranged teenage daughter, a doubtful ex-wife and CIA’s elite assassin on his tail are the things he managed to deal with. I don’t think I can handle that much.

I’ll give it a 9 out of 10 for the action-packed scenarios but I believe that there’s always room for improvement.

[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..).

[KMovie] Haunters

What can I say? I can actually watch Kang Dong Won doing nothing all day. Why the heck can’t he make more of these movies when his absolutely good with it. Adding to that, Go Soo in this film is adorkably irresistible.

The storyline is utterly unique! Loved it to the core! I especially liked the scene where Dong Won first entered the pawnshop where everything just stopped as he looked freakishly awesome. (What?! I mostly like good-looking weirdos Haha!) it made me want to know more and I was thrilled to see how he became such creature. (Which by the way didn’t got cleared at the end.)

I’ll give it a 9 out of 10 for the awesome and hilarious fight scenes and most importantly, the gorgeous men who starred in this movie.

[KMovie] Psychometry

Psychometry2

Excellent and almost perfect! 9 out of 10, all because Kim Bum is here! (I think I should be spanked for rating movies because of the main leads. Haha! Can you blame me?) This completed my police/detective stories week! Totally action packed and some slices of comedy is just perfect.

It’s a little bit creepy because when Kim Bum does his Psychometry mojo he just gets into this seizure-like episodes of jerking and bleeding out everywhere. It makes me wonder if such abilities exist somewhere around the world. The movie would have been more awesome if they explained why and how Kim Bum acquired such powers. They just left audience hanging. On that note, they should produce a sequel maintaining the original cast or better yet, a drama series! That would be much more Daebak!

I hope KimBum gets to shoot and show more movies! Being the lead or not, he’s such a wonderful actor, totally beautiful!

[KMovie] Blind

Blind_(2011_film)_poster

Another must-see! it was such a thrilling experience from beginning to the end. Yoo Seung Ho and Kim Haneul made it even more amazing. Now I crave for some more Seung Ho movies. The suspense heightened when it’s on the audience Point of View because we are the only ones who can see the villain.

The train station chase gave me goosebumps. If thrown into the same situation, I wouldn’t know what to do. The death of Seul Ki was so heartbreaking as I was reminded if my dogs with the same breed.

I just hope killings like this doesn’t happen in real life, for heaven’s sake, I’m a nursery teacher and just imagining these toddlers getting kidnapped, harassed and killed by a psychotic bastard who can’t get over his issues makes me want to puke and punch someone’s face!

This is definitely a 10 out of 10 kind of movie! 😀
