All in all, both the original and the remake were great movies but the original Miracle in Cell No. 7 was on a different level. It delivered on a film that personifies an innocence that grips on the heartstrings and never lets go. Amazing film. Worth every tear.
To enjoy this movie, the best advice I could give perhaps, is to view it as its own movie instead of a remake. Miracle in Cell No. 7 holds a different kind of magic. One that is unusual for the season but one that will leave a mark on one’s heart.
There is a difference between indie and mainstream movies. Most indie films find themselves struggling to cater to the taste of mainstream audiences which make up basically 80 percent of moviegoers. After a week of […]
I actually saw 77 Heartbreaks last year but I wasn’t able to do a review until I saw it again recently on Netflix. This romantic drama film directed by Herman Yau is definitely not your […]
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 […]
With all of the films in competition in Cinemalaya 2019, director Thop Nazareno’s Edward is surely among the best. How a film set in the depressing backdrop of a Philippine public hospital can be whimsical, […]
All in all, Pandanggo sa Hukay was a spot-on depiction the real evil — people who prey on the weak for personal gain. A system that fails to bring them to justice, just because they have become a normal part of the societal structure. And the fact that what happened to Elena could happen to anyone is a nightmare that one would not wish on one’s worst enemy. Tragic.
Movie moms often represent the different types of mothers that we have in real life. Parenthood is a challenge in itself but motherhood is a whole ‘nother story. Just for fun, I gathered the different […]
JTBC’s “Somehow 18” aka “18 Again” stars K-pop idol and K-drama actor Choi Min Ho and Lee Yoo Bi in a time slip web series that tests whether there is truly a second chance for […]
All in all, I would consider Kingdom to be one of Korea’s finest saeguk dramas that can rival the suspense and intensity of HBO’s Game of Thrones. By the first season’s end, it had Battle of Castle Black feels which only fueled one’s desire to see what happens next when the second season opens. Too bad filming will only begin next month and fans will have to wait for another few months before we could binge on another epic season. I for one, could not wait to see if my conspiracy theories are correct. One word for the entire thing — brilliant, even though it ended on a cliffhanger. I could not think of more superlatives for this series. Seriously.
