I was super glad to take the recommendation of my dear friend and fellow Asian drama addict Sheila when she raved about Le Coup de Foudre (which literally translates to Thunderbolt). At first, I admit […]
I was prepared for a coming of age drama when I entered the screening of writer director Maricel Cariaga’s Children of the River. However, I was caught off guard by the myriad of emotions that […]
All in all, Love the Way You Are is far from rocket science but it manages to connect the audience to that carefree and innocent part of their youth to reminisce the joy of falling in love for the first time. It was not without its heartbreaking moments, thanks mainly to Vivian Sung’s great acting, but I would still say this is the perfect movie to watch if ever you’re in need of a pick me up after a bad day. It will definitely put a smile on your face.
All in all, Good Morning Call Season 2, like the original season, felt very familiar, heartwarming, and overflowing with cuteness and feelings. I once said that the original season often made me cry happy tears and the same rang true with season 2. Plus, better clothes, styling and cinematography. I can’t wait for Season 3. Paging #Netflix! Don’t make me wait too long!
All in all, “Our Times” was a heartwarming love story that viewers would want to see over and over again even despite hard to read subtitles. It was well worth the sacrifice to experience the sweetness and innocence of true love and I for one, have seen the flick multiple times before I typed this review. How’s that for a recommendation?
All in all, I loved the contradictions — how mature and childish Uehara was at the same time. I loved how innocent and giving Nao was. They were polar opposites but when they came together, they worked. I loved their friends and their family. I felt like I was part of the house party at the end. Speaking of which, I loved the ending — in particular and how Hisashi took charge to speak with the landlady to resolve their housing problem and what his final request was. I loved that the ending could herald a second season but become a series ender as well with no regrets. On the technical side, I would still give cinematography and style to the Koreans but as a manga adaptation, I feel like this is one of the best for the Japanese. Can you tell how much I loved it? If you’re new to Jdramas, “Good Morning Call” is a definite must.
Fresh from seeing Shailene Woodley in the hit movie Divergent, I came across this indie flick which she co-starred with another Divergent alum Miles Teller. This production premiered in the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, way […]

Before I wrote this entry, I re-read my review of the book so that I can refrain from saying the same things again. Why? This is one of the best book to movie translations I have […]
I’ve had this film on my TBR pile for quite a while now and I’ve only gotten around to seeing it last night when I was browsing through the titles. Originally, I wanted to see […]
