Love the Way You Are: Movie Review

film. 

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.

Our Times: Movie Review

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?

Netflix’s Good Morning Call: Series Review

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.
