I have been seeing Forgotten on plex for awhile. The poster looks scary. I dare not watch it. I don’t do horror movie. It freaks me out after The Ring. But on the plane, I somehow drawn to it. Forgotten shall not be forgotten, I said to myself. And just like that, I hit play. I gambled my life that day. I pulled my blanket to prep myself for the worse. I even turned the volume down coz you know… horror movies always incorporate scary sound effect and music background.
If you are looking for an entertaining movie, please consider Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds. I saw this on my trip back from Turkey, but did not get a chance to blog it. I was somehow skeptical by the title. The synopsis did not convince me to watch it immediately. I only considered it because of Joo Ji Hoon. I haven’t seen him in any recent movies or dramas and was hoping it would be decent. Sure enough, the first 5 minutes convinced me immediately.
Love is blind! Really! If you haven’t seen Two Lights yet, you’re missing out on one of the sweetest short movies of 2018. Hahaha I know, we only in March but can’t help being a lil dramatic! Park Hyung Sik and Han Ji Min really shine in this movie. They both made me grin from cheek to cheek the past 30 minutes. The pace was just nice. Usually, a drama or a movie under 30 minutes time will either give you an incomplete story, a story with no beginning or end, a story that left you hanging on the cliff, or a story with no story. But for the first time, in many short movies and dramas I’ve seen, this is the first one that gives all the context I need and a complete satisfactory story that now I yearn for more.
I was not expecting my flight to Sao Paulo to have amazing selections of Asian movies. I scrolled the list from A to Z over and over again. It was difficult to pick the perfect zzz movie because everything looks interesting. I finally decided on Because I Love You because the trailer was the funniest of the rest. Besides, Kim Yoo Jung is in it! I love this girl so much.
We have been hearing about this movie for a while. Each time we started it, something came up. But finally, today my son and I were able to sit through the entire movie. But this show uses foul lingo which I continuously reminding my kiddo to not use it since I don’t use it. *coughs* Bel knows I only use it in private *giggles*. Anywho, this movie is available on Netflix if you are interested in watching. Ahn Seo Hyun plays Mija and she was wonderful as the lead.
When I first saw the trailer, I knew I must watch this movie no matter what. I fell in love right away with Son Ye Jin’s portrayal as Princess Dok Hye. Her stunning beauty and her elegant and poised character struck me immediately. The trailer got me into tears. And when I finally saw the movie, my heart and soul were moved by it. Wait, I was also angry! Angry at how the Japanese treated the Princess and angry at how the citizens were treated.
This fantasy movie is super interesting. I doubted it in the beginning. I wasn’t sure how could Koreans make fantasy movies brilliantly. Yes, I was biased and worried if I would just wasting my time. But I didn’t. The movie was in fact brilliantly made and brilliantly acted! The stories were wonderful! And the best part, the child actress, Shin Eun Soo, did a superbly job next to Kang Dong Won!
