All in all, Crash Landing on You is one of the best Kdramas I’ve seen. Its definitely way up there in my Top 5. It not only ticked all of the boxes of a good drama but it even upped the game some more. It will be tough to top this one because there is too much to love.
Hello guys! We’re in for a treat today because I’ve asked my good friend (and fellow Kdrama addict) Mj Uy-Morelos for a guest post on Netflix and tVN’s recent smash hit Crash Landing on You, […]
Sounds cheesy, right? Yup. Judging by the trailer, this film will be as cheesy as the synopsis promises. We’ve seen this formula a thousand times before but surprisingly, it works every single time.
All in all, Yesterday was a simple and heartwarming film that used The Beatles and their music as a backdrop for an equally poignant love story. At the end of the day, you’re set as long as you have that one person who will stick it out with you no matter what.
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, 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.
I would have to say that Ulan will not be a film for everybody. Its success or failure is relative to the audience’s taste. One thing is for sure, though. Its an unforgettable film that challenges convention and its one brave movie for going against the norm.
All in all, Destination Wedding was a veritable snoozefest that wasted the chemistry that Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder could no doubt have created between themselves if they were given the right material. It was long, tedious, and overblown with self importance. It revolved around two unlikeable characters that viewers will find a challenge to connect to no matter how hard they try. Despite my best intentions, I couldn’t find it in my heart to recommend this to anyone, even the most hopeless of romantics.
All in all, One Great Love was a good movie because it had a good core message that it did not stray from, a solid cast of actors to play the main roles and it had a nice pacing that kept audiences engaged just enough to invest in the characters emotionally. Most of all, it was very relateable because it was grounded on an idea that audiences would truly want to believe — that for each person, there is that One Great Love and that their love story is just waiting to be told. Most of all, it kept the audience wondering what Zyra’s final choice would be by giving each part of her love stories equal importance, holding their attention til the very end. That’s a mark of smart storytelling, right there.
All in all, Never Not Love You is spot on. It took a risk in veering away from the typical formula of previous Jadine movies but it was a risk that paid off. From the great script, to the musical score that emphasized every phase of the relationship, to the cinematography that made viewers appreciate the beauty of London and Makati at night, to the effective portrayal of James and Nadine which made up 80 percent of the movie. It all came together as one of Jadine and Jadaone’s best collaborations yet.
