I was touched by the message of The Room, a manifestation of Tommy’s dream of having a world where everybody loved everybody. It was a conversation about being accepted fully and unconditionally, despite outward appearances, and despite being different. I salute Tommy for following his dreams even though nobody really believed in him. I’m happy he found a true believer in Franco. It takes a lot of courage and confidence to do something while being faced with everyone’s ridicule and I’m happy that this “documentary” was able to show Tommy’s heart, even if it not reveal his true identity. … Read More

Deadpool 2: Movie Review

All in all Deadpool 2 was very consistent with the first movie, and was super entertaining with the script and the amazing action sequences. But it stopped short of being great when it refused to take itself seriously, even for a bit. And if you treat an entire movie as a joke, it gets monotonous after a while, and you lose sight of why you were rooting for it in the first place. Having said all that, Deadpool was still a solid addition to the franchise and managed to correct some booboos made by the Wolverine Origins movie in the post credits. Hopefully, next time, there would be a better balance of humor and seriousness to make Deadpool the compelling hero he is in the comic books.

Netflix’s Set It Up: Movie Review

All in all, I loved Set It Up because it didn’t take itself too seriously. It set off to tell a simple story and focused on developing rootable characters that people can relate to, and it succeeded. It knew that it was borrowing plots from films like Parent Trap and it even gave a shoutout. Set It Up was funny and interesting and depicted the lives of the people who worked behind the rich and powerful. It showcased their struggles, frustrations and desperation but most importantly, the movie managed to make audiences fall in love within an hour and a half. Kudos to writer Katie Silberman and director Claire Scanlon. Catch Set It Up on Netflix when you can.… Read More Netflix’s Set It Up: Movie Review

Switch Change the World: Kdrama Review

All in all, I would definitely recommend Switch because of the great story, solid casting and great chemistry. A major plus is the catchy soundtrack by Teen Top and FT Island’s Lee Hong Ki. Switch is an interesting 16 episode series (split into 32) that sustains its momentum from start to end, something that not all dramas are able to pull off. I hope Geun Suk and Ye Ri get to work together again after his enlistment because these two are absolute acting gems. … Read More Switch Change the World: Kdrama Review
