All in all, Holidate did not have the most original story. It was fairly simple but it filled out the better part of two hours with an entertaining take on the holidays for single people. It will definitely boost your holiday mood. And this is just me but I think the ending left enough room for a sequel. I would definitely check it out if it happens.
Let me just say that if you’re a fan of Asian dramas and you’re looking for a light […]
Apart from the cheesy slowmos and beauty shots, I would say that A Little Thing Called First Love was a passable drama, perhaps lacking in overall substance but not bad enough for me to abort viewing.
It promises to deliver a sweet and fun love story in the tone of Sophie Kinsella’s signature wit and humor. I’m looking forward to seeing this.
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.
It’s not just because people are more inclined to be more sensitive about a lot of things now. I would say my threshold for offensive comedy can be pretty high. In any generation though, I would expect that there is a common definition of right and wrong. I was born in the 80s but I was shocked by how this film presented teens of this generation — superficial, stupid, opportunistic. No, I can’t accept that this reflects the 80s generation as a whole. There is not one sensible person in this movie, not one.
All in all, Nisekoi Live Action did a great job in compressing all the materials from the manga and the anime in just 118 minutes and fun and laughter. The storytelling was fluid and simple and the chemistry among the cast members was also very solid. This is why Japanese high school movies are the best. So cute. So earnest. So over the top. I loved it.
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.
Spellbound is a cute and entertaining tale delivered very well by a competent and charismatic cast. Its a rom-com dosed with just the right amount of horror to deliver a different concept and a fresh take on the genre.
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.
