Before I proceeded to review the trailer of 20th Century Fox’s Underwater, I had to review the clip twice to see if my initial impression was correct. My initial thoughts […]
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.
All in all, I would definitely recommend Skyscraper to anyone who would listen to my opinion. Its awesome and entertaining, and I haven’t really felt this way about an action film since “Olympus Has Fallen.” That’s benchmarking for you.
All in all, Forgotten was a dark and sinister tale of two innocents who unwittingly become victims of a cruel twist of fate — two pure hearts who are tested by destiny until their paths once again cross. Forgotten was aptly named, and perfectly executed an elaborate plot that remained consistent from start to finish.
All in all, The Open House was a passable horror. Not particularly good or bad. Just passable. The problem was that it focused too much on the buildup but the reveal of the culprit did not really pay off. The script also turned the rest of the cast into cardboard characters that viewers have seen countless times before. Of its 1 hour and 34 minute run, only 20 minutes really held my interest and I’m not sure if that’s enough to set this film apart from the rest in its genre.
For me, Bad Genius was anything but genius. It was a copout to give the final credit to its lead character. While I appreciated the concept and the suspense, there was no justice and that I could not forgive.
All in all, “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” was able to deliver a serious message about taking responsibility for one’s strengths (literally and figuratively) in a light and fun atmosphere by using sometimes over the top comedy that pokes fun at the common tropes in rom-com. It maintained audiences’ interest with a multi-faceted story that engaged and entertained from the first minute up to the last. Never a boring moment with this series, whether it was in solving crime or falling in love. But its main strength was truly the insane chemistry between the lead characters. I fervently hope that Park Hyung Sik and Park Bo Young get to work in another rom-com soon, and I mean soon. For now, I will content myself while watching this series over and over and over and over again.
