Chernobyl: Miniseries Review

All in all, I could safely say that Chernobyl is one of HBO’s best miniseries despite the lack of any A-listers on its roster. It was gripping. It was engaging. It was dramatic and shocking in all the right places. It took viewers to a journey through history into the most devastating nuclear disaster that threatened to wipe out an entire nation and more. It was a humbling to witness it and leaves one to contemplate one’s mortality in the face of today’s world challenges. I am awed.

Her Private Life: Kdrama Review

All in all, Her Private Life was so much more that its fangirling concept. It was an engaging journey about finding love, redemption, endings and beginnings in the most unexpected places. It doesn’t take an overly complicated plot or tons of kissing scenes (although the good news is that Her Private Life has plenty) to make a wonderful Kdrama work. A well planned story, with the addition of a great cast, great script and great soundtrack makes for a memorable Kdrama and this one is it.… Read More Her Private Life: Kdrama Review

Godzilla: King of the Monsters Movie Review

All in all, Godzilla: King of the Monsters got a lot of flak from people who didn’t like it. I must admit that it was not a perfect film but it was beautiful. It was cool. It was epic. It was faithful to the franchise. It was entertaining and if you disregard the forced family dynamic, it delivered on its message that Godzilla was king for a reason. Growing up a fan of Godzilla, hats off to the filmmakers who made this movie the magnificent spectacle that it was. Long live the King indeed. I guess it depends on taste. I, for one, approve. … Read More Godzilla: King of the Monsters Movie Review

Svaha: The Sixth Finger Movie Review

All in all, “Svaha: The Sixth Finger” was far from extraordinary. It was not scary. It was not thought-provoking. It was boring, but it did touch on the very real issue of religious fanaticism, which is present in all types of religion, left unchecked. It was a movie that technically did everything right but failed on the level that it did not evoke much of an impact given the material it covered. Sometimes, talking above an audience’s head takes its toll and it took its toll for this movie, big time. For me, at least.… Read More Svaha: The Sixth Finger Movie Review

Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days Review

All in all, I loved “Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days” because of its moving multi-layered story, as well as the message of forgiveness and second chances that it offered. The action scenes were really cool, as was the script that focused on family just as much as the first movie, although this time, it comes with the additional message of atonement and peace. Truly an entertaining feast for the senses, well acted and well executed. I have little to no complaints. … Read More Along with the Gods: The Last 49 Days Review

Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds Movie Review

“Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds” is one of the very rare occasions that an all-star cast delivered on expectations mostly because the writer and director Kim Yong Hwa did not focus on giving the actors equal exposure. Rather, the filmmaker served the needs of the script, no more, no less. Actors seemed to be happy with their doing their part to pull off a good movie and their teamwork truly showed. The movie was entertaining from start to finish and it was also interesting to explore different beliefs on the afterlife and creation, as well as the mystic powers that surround it.
