I must admit that I didn’t get to watch a lot of Korean dramas in 2021. I stuck mainly to rewatching some of my favorites because the current trend in romance tropes didn’t quite appeal to me as much this year (although I have a couple of dramas I am waiting to binge). Here’s my list of my personal favorites though and I hope you give them a watch.
All in all, the pacing was just right for 12 episodes but I must admit that I was a bit worried when there were still plenty of loose ends by the last one. Thankfully, the ending was worth the stress. I wasn’t a big fan of the soundtrack though.
Happiness was definitely one of the better dramas of 2021. It begs the question of who the real monsters are when humanity is tested by crisis. Clearly, there were plenty of monsters in this series but not just the neck biting variety.
I’ve seen plenty of disaster movies but almost none where I was rooting for the demise of humankind. The people in the movie deserved it, and if life imitated art in this scenario, it makes me think that maybe we deserve it too.
While watching The Lord of the Rings was an exciting experience the first time around, it has a different impact when you are rewatching it after some time. One thing remains consistent. Its quality. It’s worth revisiting each time.
All in all, the Twilight franchise was not the best book to movie adaptations out there. At some point, you would want to hit your head on a wall for even bothering to get yourself roped into watching of the movies but they were not completely horrible. They had their moments when they made sense. They were entertaining and good for a couple of laughs. It just felt like I was watching a very long Dulcolax (laxative) commercial.
Jirisan will keep you guessing until the very end but it definitely served up a satisfactory finale well worth the watch. It provided closure for all the characters we have come to love and delivered poetic justice to those who deserved it. I’m actually glad I decided to wait for the final week of airing before I got started on watching the series because I don’t know if I could have stood waiting for the weekly episodes to come out to find out what happens next. Jirisan is definitely one series I wouldn’t mind watching all over again and one that I would definitely recommend to everyone.
All in all, The Whole Truth was a borefest that took pride in ripping off classic horror classics and made no apologies for being a copycat. It wasn’t even flattering to the original material. In all fairness, filmmakers tried to do their best. Unfortunately, the film already sank before it could start floating because everything about it was so subpar it was ridiculous.
Over the past five seasons, Money Heist has delivered some of the best and worst characters in television/streaming history as part of its magnificent run. As the show draws to a close with its final chapter, we take a look back at the show’s best/and worst characters. See if you agree.
All in all, the final season delivered a high tension, emotional rollercoaster that never eased up on the gas pedal. It was magnificent. Truly a marvel of a series. All of the accolades and praises were well deserved.
The new film tried to build more layers to the tale, but the story got away from them. Black Christmas 2019 was a mess from start to finish. Moral Lessons: Don’t fix what ain’t broken. Just because you could doesn’t mean you should. Don’t try to flip a classic just to prove you are better. Because in this case, the remake, developed over 30 years later than the original, was far inferior to the 1974 classic IN ALL ASPECTS.
