So cute but so ugly.
One of the super positive features of "My Egg Boy" is the symbolism to be found from the eggs and from aging to expiration in a literal and literally unique way. Totally charming. The metaphorical meanings found in this film point to our own biological clocks, leading to a life lesson of openness present in us from birth.
The instinctive biological clock of procreation strikes women and read more many men in their twenty-third and thirty-fifth years scientifically proven. Each minute, hour and year imagined can seal a person's life as the expiration date on an egg carton. This bodily urge can become a strong underlying catalyst for emotions in romantic relationships. This describes the plot of "My Egg Boy" in a beautiful story of love and life.
A slightly neurotic Zeng Mei Bao works for a frozen food company as a specialist and product tester. As a younger associate in the office, she is in charge of a new advertising push to attract younger customers to the brand. Recently divorced before even being able to have a honeymoon, Zeng Mei Bao longs for being pregnant, but her dedicated dedication to work cost her a husband. Then she crosses the path of A-Shi an aspiring chef and the novel begins ...
As Zeng Mei Bao makes the freezing of her eggs to ensure a pregnancy in old age and buy her time for a day to get married, "My Egg Boy" becomes a big tangent when it comes to romance in high fantasy where the Actors portray their frozen eggs and sperm in absurd costumes inside cryogenic storage. Exactly, in addition to the novel the film shows a perspective of the type "what the eggs and sperm think about being frozen".
Two in particular, a sperm boy (Huai-Yun Zhan) and an egg girl (Lyan Chen), are responsible for "theoretically" simulating through Zeng Mei Bao the prospect of a love life between her and A-Shi. It sounds absurd, but it was a great balcony from the director Tien-Yu Fu.
This thread of history reveals an entire imaginary society bathed in white with a peculiar class system of young behavior, modern society.
It looks like a silly movie, but it is not, in the end it makes a lot of sense. The lovable romance between the caricatured reproductive cells parallels the chemistry of the two humans who are beginning the relationship. Cinematography is a beauty eyelash absent from vibrant cinematography to blend the sunny and seasonal exteriors with the interior of an egg and sperm in search of the dream of fertilization and the beginning of the offspring.
Driving an excellent woman-centered resource of impatience and initiative of her character to find love where she is not a cornucopia of quirks. Instead, she is approachable and sociable, does not look for the perfect pair because she knows that she is living reality, she wants to find a husband to marry and have the very desired child.
In the same way, A-Shi could have established himself to be the handsome, rich and difficult. Instead he is simple, focused on the job he was not looking for a novel, but thanks to Zeng Mei Bao decides to date since he also knows that he is with an age to fix himself.
In general, the strength of "My Egg Boy" is in dynamic writing to weave magic and practice with fertile imagination. What begins as a whimsy evolves rather warmly to something ravishingly sincere both within dating and beyond, the basic human need for dialogue has become a desirable community experience among people interested in spending time with each other. Simply put, sharing feelings and talking is an essential activity for dating. For example, steak lovers probably should not marry vegetarians. In "My Egg Boy," the ironic humor is found between the organic chef and the "vendor" of processed microwave food. In other words, opposites attract each other, thanks to sincerity and dialogue. A proof who the people are and can be so much more than the eyes can see, just give the opportunity. You are never fully prepared for love, and you will never be fully ready to have a child, but talking is a good start. Recomended!

A very harmonized drama, like calming cinematography, enlightenment, scenery and effects, all combine with the story, everything matches that grandmother's air.
The cast helped and very, consistent performance and very well represented by the beautiful protagonist, embellished by a simple but beautiful costumes that gave the grand read more finale of a dazzling drama. Of a drama that warms the soul.

Surgeons, Chinese drama to the chase of Koreans!
"Surgeons" is a Chinese medical drama that troubled the Koreans, a fact that Korean knows how to make good dramas, even more of the medical genre, but China has been showing growth in its productions, proof was "Surgeons", which came to show that not only Korean He understands medicine.
Obviously, "Surgeons" does not have that dramatic impact of the Korean versions because of the read more more conservative culture of China, however history is high, we have a story very well written by Zhu Zhu where at no time was there a loss of income in what Refers to arresting the attention of the viewer, in fact the drama involves a mystery and an investigation, can often be a bit annoying, but the direction of Xue Li suppressed this annoyance mixing medical scenes like surgical operations and parallel novels as well as administrative intrigues and Personal, not only protagonists but also adjuvants, in the end we end up seeing all the acting and participative cast within small stories but fundamental to set the whole context of the drama.
The cinematography and scenarios, are also the height, cutting-edge technology, medical training mannequins, shows that "Surgeons" did not save money in production, wanted to show their full potential. And they did it.
Soundtrack, well, here we have some divergences, China is still not very good of thinks the right melody for the scene to get emotionally correct. And we all know that a good soundtrack is fundamental to convey all the feeling that that particular scene presents. A pity, but nothing to hinder, is within the acceptable.
In general, the difference between this medical drama and Korean dramas of the same genre is the focus of the story. "Surgeons" focuses more on the medical-medical side, contrary to the Korean version focusing on the doctor-patient.
For those who are fans of medical dramas, this is an excellent suggestion!

"Ani ni Aisaresugite Komattemasu" begins relatively well, we see a typical Japanese crazed cinematography, with Ono Ito playing the rejected student and the "nice" Ryota Katayose as the bad boy. Member of the Jpop group "GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE" who performed very well. There is a little more presence of adjuvants on the scene.
The story was somehow half-contained as all the relationships over the five episodes, up to the Japanese standard. read more I was surprised, even at Live Action the feelings were better expressed.
In a way I liked it, a well written drama, many classic elements of slice of live and school live are enough to make a good impression, soundtrack is also very good. "Ani ni Aisaresugite Komattemasu" was short but very well produced, like Live Action.

Based on the manga, it's the hell of a psychological drama.
I liken it to "Liar Game," where people manipulate each other for money by lowering their debts. Both have tons of puzzles in a game that will test their humanity, morality, loyalty and, of course, friendship. So it comes down to the premise of "Tomodachi Game" that should be translated as "Game of Friendship".
The drama was very well planned, starting read more with the story that is not at all simple, it is rich in tormenting elements, where they test all the feelings of the participants and stirring the feelings of the spectators.
The quality of the cast here is irrelevant, after all they are all players of distinct minds who act differently under the pressure of a complicated game with a soundtrack that helps and much to give the climate of tension necessary for the story. Reasoning in a limited time to choose the correct answer is undoubtedly torturous, experiencing real tension and emotion is difficult even for those who watch, imagine who plays.
"Tomodachi Game" explores all the variables and perspectives of the participants, just a wrong answer and you are out of this game! Where friendship will speak louder than money or money will speak louder than friendship!

Originality and good music.
A young film that deals with a theme about life and death in the perspective of youth rebellion and the conservatism of the elders under the narrative of the diversity of life, of love and of the silence of those who end up saying goodbye to someone.
Three sisters who carry the dream of being Idols, see the loss of someone an opportunity to realize their dreams, undoubtedly read more the originality of "The Farewell Girls" is a milestone for a Chinese production, after all, as the title suggests, is a film That will break and not create barriers. Recommended!

Trash movie!
This movie is nothing spectacular, starting with the story, haunted doll, very common. Who does not remember "Chucky (Child's Play)".
The narrative disappoints, nothing grand coming from a weak history, the elements that are added have no coherence whatsoever like the story, kill them or not, nothing changes or changes the main story.
The pace was good, the performance was good and the overall performance was quite marked for the read more trash genre.
A woman is expecting twins, one dies during childbirth and the mother suffers with the illusion that the doll is the other child ... Why did no one tell her that one of her children died? Is the doll causing it? Is everything in her mind? A movie about a haunted doll with some psychological elements played at random, a total failure.

Beautiful love story!
The film relies on a careful exchange of romanticism with that of the supernatural elements that, plausibly, promote the growth of its two main characters and their love relationship. It does not fit into the overly tempted notion of the tragic and common loss in novels, especially considering how many other films usually have one of the characters with some deteriorating disease or terminal illness to defend ideas of read more forced separation. His uniqueness in the narrative structure separates it from similar films that maintains the genre and, along with an excellent cast and direction, produces an emotionally touching, unconventional, and ultimately quite memorable viewing experience.
"Tomorrow I Will Date With Yesterday's You" makes you think more about the situation in which the two main characters were and the consequences that this would mean to them.
By Japanese standards it may have been some movie, but it is not, the story is well written, it has a coherent logic, it seems to be difficult to understand at first, but they have a transition of interest that makes you understand it perfectly. It's worth it!

In the time where ethics and moral principles prevailed, marriage had to be perfect, although a symbol of union was considered unique, today in a decrepit society where marriage became synonymous with little duration of the queasy type ends and marries again, can "If the" perfect "is ruled out, it is better not to marry because it is a tremendous bureaucracy for divorce.
I'm usually picky about what I watch, because there's read more a lot out there, I can barely keep up with my obvious interests ... in general, a movie where it's supposed to become a teen-oriented movie. Actually, it was not.
Just to be clear, she does not really go back in time, nor does she physically reverse herself at age ... Instead, it's as if her 28-year-old self exchanges with her 17-year-old self. In short, it is a rediscovery of itself, of its existence for what it means to love.
Most movies, when this happens, is a unique journey, and in the end they go back to where they started. In this movie, this is not the case as he sways between the two frequently.
This movie has become more serious when we face the struggle with which it deals, with the mess left behind from each trip. However, in the end, it's an exciting message about embracing who you are; But also about letting go. This really makes you think about your own life ... What would your 17-year-old self say to you now? Well mine certainly would say,
"You laugh at me for being different, and I laugh at you because you're all the same, live the real in this world pretend and fuck what others think or they will stop thinking about you."
As François de La Rochefoucauld put it: "Hypocrisy is a tribute that addiction lends itself to virtue."

Bizarre but better than many movies that claim to be good.
Although frowned upon here, this movie is actually based on a mobile manga and possible hentai, popular in Japan.
In fact, hentai will be better in cartoon format than with real people like in this live action. The storyline is a bit sloppy and the movie goes slow: the pretty, usual girl with short hair who saves people with determination, has read more supernatural power and a helper (a frog!), Even a green little toad! But that has its own sad story. Nothing special here. Cinematography is simply bad. This, more than a movie, is an attempt, a thesis, something that could have been fun, but failed at different levels. The acting is bad, even for that genre! I found myself looking at the time several times and in the end wanted to feel entertained but felt more like I had wasted my time. Then again, they make these movies to start franchises or sell the idea and give cosplayers the new and old characters to dress up.
But then why on earth give a high note, well, read the manga and see that although bizarre has a fairly good story but little explored in the live, which was intended to be more "perverted" so to speak.

Harmonium divided into harmony and melancholy.
The film germinated in the mind of writer and director Kôji Fukada, filmed mainly in Tokyo, "Harmonium" is awarded a prize in Cannes for being an eccentric family drama.
This is not really a movie to sit and watch, the pace is typical Japanese however, if you are able to tolerate this kind of stimulation, especially the first half, you will be in a great emotional read more film. The film actually takes a sudden turn that looks like a completely different movie in the second half onwards.
Unfortunately, it's one of those abrupt, somewhat unsatisfactory terminals, an inconclusive film, leaving you to draw all sorts of conclusions and interpretations, it also leaves you with many unresolved questions as well as the characters ...
Harmonium adds some unique elements to it that feel more raw and full of sympathy. It really makes you think about the consequences and emotional realism that each character must feel.
The acting is a major factor for this movie by all cast, thanks to them is a very heavy film that will surely make you shake in an unusual way.

Sometimes, the default premise can set a limit where creativity is limited. "Two Weeks" is premised on the ex-offender who finds himself fathering an 8-year-old girl, and at the top framed by murder reinvents and rediscovers himself in 2 weeks.
The complexity of the plot involves improbable variables and intriguing selfish villains, a political woman and a mafia boss vying for one last big deal. Along with this a promoter who has read more been gathering evidence on these 2; The former wife of the former criminal, the current boyfriend who is a police officer, and to make worse the daughter of 8 who needs bone marrow transplantation.
The interlacing of the plot as well as the set-up and setting of relationship as a whole is enough to accumulate tension to the viewer, making it a super drama.
From the acting part, the villain is despicable, the melodrama is very tacky, but in compensation the girl is a sweet, supplying the melodramatic lack in the level of dramas of the genre. Super recommended!

The cute and fun romantic comedy continues.
The premise of the previous film tells the story of Kotoko Aihara who is a high school student who finally decides to confess her love for Naoki Irie since the first time she saw him. However, Naoki, who is smart and good at sports, unlike her, rejects the statement. Fate intervenes when a light earthquake destroys the home of Kotoko and his father and, with read more no place to stay, the two accept the invitation to live in the house of the childhood friend of Kotoko's father until the house is rebuilt.

In this second part the events continue, but in college and with new characters, including the tennis coach Sud?, to give that spicy in the things, of kind to envy in Irie and to "give to top" of the Aihara ...
What I can say is that, the film follows the same mood as the previous one, almost nothing has changed, that is, it has been the same from the beginning, which is good and bad at the same time, because this "novel" does not go to Front, although there was a push with the college ticket and for those who are waiting for the long-awaited kiss, because I say that in this movie he ...

The premise is undoubtedly simple but appealing, if navigating the ups and downs of life can sometimes be similar to trying to cross a stormy sea.
Narratively speaking, 'See You Tomorrow' is actually a collection of three vague accounts connected around the respective romantic battles of Chen Mo, Guan Chun and Xiao Yu.
In the direction of Zhang Jiajia "See You Tomorrow" focuses more on the comical aspect of unrequited love and read more how everyone tends to deal with it. The classic soundtrack of the 90s gives a retro flavor to the film, which is a plus.

A long sleepy half as we have a biting guitar with fights often shot in single takes, with strenuous actors, turning fights into "grapples", does not give emotion when you watch.
Of the positives we have highlights for the performance and great performances in the direction, in spite of the sleepy struggles, also the brutality and violence in the right measure. Negative point the polarization of the end, I liked not a read more bit of that, and little revelation of the characters during the film, the focus was the present and not the past, but without a past there is no present.
