Overall:This drama was pretty typical in your flower boy and rom-com genres. However, I enjoyed it. I even marathoned it over two days. It had some unique points, and delivered on the humor. The love aspect was pretty well done, but cliche at times - as to be expected. None of those things detracted from the show. The cast was fitting, the music was good, and some would rewatch it, although I read more don't know if I would. Maybe if I had no other shows or wanted something very light. You should watch this for romance, cuteness, fun, eye candy, SWEET BOYS RATHER THAN RICH JERKS, and Park Shin Hye (even if you are not a huge fan).

Story: Not completely unique, but with enough unique points and humor to forgive the cliches. The pace was enjoyable and the writing was very good. Not to mention many (although not all) loose ends were tied up in the final episode involving the cast.

Acting: The cast was spot on for this show and I developed a few new favorites. The parts were well-written, the acting was as expected. Some scenes were exaggerated, but I found it added to the show's charms. The best part was the lack of stereotypical rude and rich romantic male.

Music: The music was very enjoyable and placed in the best of places. Everything emphasized moments, the acting and scenes. i actually never grew tired of hearing anything, even the opening and closing themes which can become annoying even to the most die hard drama fans. I found myself downloading parts of the soundtrack.

Rewatch: I do not think I would immediately rewatch this show, although it would be wonderful to do so. I would wait until I had nothing else or needed time to kill, it is very good for a light and romantic watch.

Okay so obviously this drama is based on Itazura na Kiss and is not 100% original, but despite that I give the story a 10. This is easily my favorite version and the only version I have watched multiple times. The pacing is just right and there is so much more depth and interesting scripting. Each character has their wonderful parts and their flaws so there is never really a boring moment. read more I especially like how the male lead TenTen (Naoki/Seung Jo depending on the version you have seen) is more than an a-hole genius. There are moments when he is standoffish and looks down on people, but the writers offer an explanation as to why. And there are also caring and tender moments as well, something I think could have been emphasized more with the other stories.

There is much more backstory and I feel watching this show gets you more involved, pulls you in more. I also like that Taliw (Kotoko/Ha Ni in the Japanese and Korean versions) is much more likable and is not portrayed as a idiotic and childish figure. She is smart in certain areas and then is lacking in some others, something that is much more realistic in my opinion. There is also no blind following on her part, she can make her own decisions and even get mad - a vital character trait i think was lacking in the other versions. King was especially better, he was not portrayed as a village idiot or obnoxious, but a charmer that is trying his best to win the girl. There were times I found myself getting worked up about the competition, much more than with the other versions.The relationships between all the characters were great in my opinion: friendships, family ties, and love interests all were spot on. The actors did well in each of their roles and I even picked up a few new favorites again. (My list just keeps getting longer!)

Of course, I also loved the music and the placement of the music. Nothing was distracting and every time I would start to get bored a song would change subtly or not so subtly. I actually went out of my way to download the full soundtrack.

I have already watched this show multiple times and I highly recommend it to others. I know some people are die hard fans of the other versions, but everyone should at least give this one a try as well. Personally, it is my favorite version!

I have to admit that I put this show off at first. I can recognize the music right away and love it, but it often sounded sad and I didn't think I would last through the show if I watched it. Honestly, I wish I had watched it sooner. It is so good.
STORY - Pretty original. I didn't exactly know what to expect, I expected a lot of romance but this read more has everything. Romance, action, comedy, mystery. Perfect. There is not a lot of lag anywhere, but I am not 100% happy with the final episode. Maybe 90%? BUT DON'T LET THAT STOP YOU FROM WATCHING!!!! The effects are really good in the show as well and the cinematography is very nice - the lighting and camera angles enhance everything rather than being distracting.
ACTING - Amazing and the chemistry between everyone is great - romantic, family and friend relationships alike. I honestly have picked up a few new favorite actors - and reaffirmed why I already liked a few ;)
MUSIC - great as well; this is one of the few soundtracks I have downloaded. Also it's perfectly placed within the show, no random spots that are distracting. The sound effects are also subtle and enhancing as well.
REWATCH - I actually have already rewatched this show all the way through once. However, it is a show I can turn on an episode for background noise or just to occupy my attention and it's still as enjoyable as the first time.
OVERALL - 9! Honestly, this show was amazing and easily has become one of my favorites. The ending is just okay for me, enjoyable definitely, but I would have enjoyed the ending more if it had ended in the manner a certain male lead had wished for. ;)

When I was younger I saw the American version of the Grudge first and I found it terrifying and was worried when others said the original was a letdown. That being said, I was NOT disappointed at all with the Japanese original. Of course, the story is not the most original with haunted houses and vengeful spirits, but I found this film to be pretty good. On this site Ju-On: The Grudge read more is listed as a remake, but it's more like a continuation of the first two films - just with some new cast members (so don't worry if you have not seen Ju-On: The Curse 1&2). The original family that began the curse are all played by the original actors (except for the little boy Toshio, I think) however the film chronicles the affects of the curse on new multiple people. Just like with the other films, there are short mini-stories within the movie and just like the other films the sequence of the stories are out of order. It may sound confusing, but I thought it worked really well; there are demonstrations of time overlaps between stories, and the connections between people and places are made BUT YOU HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION. If you are a fan of strict, cohesive stories that focus on a limited amount of characters - like the American counterpart - this may not be as enjoyable. The cast all do a very nice job in their roles, though no one was an extraordinary superstar per se. No one was awkward, and those that were meant to be scary utilized their actions, expressions and even camera angles really well. The dialogue was as expected for a horror film, comfortable at times and suspenseful at others. I found the music and sound effects were much better than the first two films created earlier; the use of sound was much more thought out as well. Music for scenes was utilized to build suspense much more, varying from subtle to obvious; groans, creaks, and cries were placed in the right moments - no overuse whatsoever. As for rewatching? I prefer this version over the American version and I would watch it again. I found myself (in hindsight) disappointed with the American version actually, it seems far too similar. Overall, I think this was a very good film that everyone, especially horror movie fans, should watch at least once. This film was released in theaters and seemed to have a bigger budget, something that didn't happen with the earlier versions. That all made it better. I also was a very big fan of the blend of blatant jumpscares and more complex, longer buildups that could only be caught in the corner of your eye.

STORY: The overall story was not much different from the first, nor will it be different in the later films. There is a haunted home and angry ghosts that pursue certain people. There were newer characters introduced and new small stories within the film, creating a bigger web, however I felt this installment of the Ju-On series left a few too many loose ends. I realized pretty quick that almost half of read more the movie recaps the story of the original family from the first movie. It is only after this that new stories begin and some from the first movie are continued. A few parts did not make sense.

ACTING: The acting was about as expected. No one stood out as extraordinary, but no one was horrible. There were more children involved but they were not awkward like some may fear. The cast was suitable for the movie.

MUSIC: Once again, there was not much music involved. The few tracks that were used were okay, typical horror music. The sound effects were not as good in this film; sounds did not always match with actions (that may be because my copy was very old - vcr tape format converted to digital). Perhaps, it is because I have watched the newer American versions as well, but the sound effects are even at times overdone - but the film is old and some older films do that.

REWATCH VALUE: I personally wouldn't really rewatch this one for a long time, perhaps if I was doing a marathon, but eventually I would. However, die hard horror fans might rewatch it often.

OVERALL: The movie was okay. I found it to be a little bit of a let down; I only jumped once. The idea behind it is great but wasn't executed as fully as I would wish for it to be, I may rewatch it once more to see if I missed anything crucial that could make it better. BUT IT WAS NOT TERRIBLE. Just OKAY. I think if you're a horror fan, especially Japanese horror, you should try it.

These short films are both under 5 minutes in length and utilize many aspects of horror. With the camera angles and video quality one can easily tell these clips are older (made in the 90's) but that does not make them boring. The story is pretty original for what is presented in such a short time. The acting is not amazing, but it is not awkward or bad. Each actor and actress read more fits their role just fine, so the acting is what one would expect. There is little actual music in these shorts, however the use of audio affects are outstanding, especially with quality headphones. The sounds, many whom have experienced the Ju-On franchise will know: the sounds of moaning,scratching, creaking and cat meows - but they are not static, stale, or boring. The sounds enhance and add suspense to clips many may assume are too short to do anything. Despite the age of the clips and the expected audio the clips are worth watching and can be rewatched multiple times, especially if one wants to watch everything in the series.

Story: The story was not 100% original although the background story for it was very nicely done. The twist was also very nice. But it was not a movie that kept me on my toes nor did it truly terrify me. It was good though.

Acting: The acting in this movie was pretty good. Some scenes seemed a little lackluster while others seemed a bit over the top. That being said, the read more actors suited their roles well and interacted very well on screen.

Music: The music and sound effects for the movie were what you would expect, nothing too standout. It fit the film well but did not build a whole lot of suspense. I found the lack of background music a little distracting personally.

Rewatch: I personally would not rewatch this. However, die-hard horror fans or Thai movie fans might rewatch this.

Overall: This was an okay movie, not the best and not the worst. I was able to sit through it without getting too bored and the ending was pretty worth it. I wouldn't watch it again, but it does have some rewatch value. It was alright to watch once.

Story: This story was very interesting. The creepy tone was set from the very beginning, but other tones of mystery, romance, and sadness were all interwoven very well. The morbid twist on Alic in Wonderland with ghosts and nightmares was refreshing for me. The use of history and urban legends was a nice touch as well. The fact this is loosely based on some true events and an urban legend that resulted read more from said events can be taken with a grain of salt but I truly believe it's possible. Granted it can be a little confusing in places, due to some unclear scripting.

***The cinematography is absolutely beautiful for the film. There is no doubt that the location is meant to be a hidden wonderland in the real world.***

Acting: This is not the best acting on the parts of the main cast, but it was well suited for the script. I think the actors did their parts as well as they could with what was scripted. The chemistry that develops between Hong Jong Hyun and Jung So Min is a little fast, and it could have benefitted from a few more details but the ending ties up the loose ends well enough before leaving you slightly frustrated.

Musc/Sound Effects: Pretty great! The overall soundtrack, vocal and instrumental, is very nice. It is a soundtrack I would love to download if I could find it. The songs are well placed and even aid in the plot and relationships between characters. The sound effects are very well done. Everything amplifies the experience, creating moments of intense thrill and softer moments of melancholy. This is one of the best features of the film I think.

Rewatch: Honestly, I would rewatch this film multiple times because of everything you can experience and what you can take away each time. This is a film that contains enough hidden details and vague moments that you can understand more each time it is watched. If anything, you should at least watch it once.

OVERALL: This movie isn't BAD but it's definitely not as great as it could have been. But what's new with live action adaptations?

STORY: This story has a lot of awesome potentials and the buildup through the background is great. There's a nice blend of urban legends, death, ghosts, the reality of trust between friends and safety in school. As someone who has read the book and watched the anime, I was read more able to fly by the movie and not question too much. That being said it can definitely be confusing for some. There are not enough clear explanations, nor is there a lot as far as investigation or stress and pressure from solving the mystery within a certain time frame. It is kind of presented in a blase tone of "oh another student died, maybe we should try to figure it out I guess". The anime was longer and capable of adding more detail and buildup in the story, something a 90 minute or so movie just isn't capable of. There was also quite a bit of filler that didn't need to be there. It's not a bad story though, it was just done in a lackluster way.
**the graphics are not the best, the filming techniques and cinematography are a little more than okay but not great.****

CHARACTERS: These characters could have definitely benefited from some more depth and better acting. Some of the younger actors seemed uncomfortable at first, and I do not think they were given enough time to develop their characters on screen (I blame scripting and movie length). There was a lot of vagueness overall. The older actors were very good but obviously, they are not on screen much because they are not main characters, and that cannot make up for the poor acting in other parts.

MUSIC: The music and sound effects were pretty on point for this movie. Nothing was distracting but amplified the scenes and created buildup. Like many of the Japanese horror movies I have seen, the end theme was a strange pop song with somewhat morbid/dark lyrics. I never understand why people use those rather than just more instrumental but that's just me.

REWATCH: If you're a fan of the novel, manga, or anime you would probably watch this (some fans may end up frustrated). If you feel the need for a horror marathon it's not bad. But honestly, I wouldn't really watch it again. I would rather watch the bloodier and more understandable anime. Some people might like it enough to rewatch though, to each their own.

I had never seen the Japanese version or read the manga (Kimi Wa Petto) but now that I have there will be a few comparisons (you have been warned!)

The storyline is okay, compared to the jdrama and manga it is kind of weak and (I noticed my first time watching it) somewhat rushed. I didn't feel like I had missed the main story, but some of the finer details that would read more have made everything a little more realistic - as realistic as a story like this could be.This would have been great as a drama! I think it needed more development but the emphasis of music was fun (except that final song. I hated that.) And it vaguely followed the manga but not really.

Jang Geun Suk was adorable in this film, he acted the part of MoMo really well and I honestly thought he was perfect until I encountered the original. I don't think they could have picked a better Korean actor for the part. The rest of the cast seemed to fade into the background for me and it wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best. Kim Ha Neul was okay; some people complain she is creepy and even the whole idea behind the film is horrible, but I think she emphasized the role of a woman joking and proposing an outlandish idea to get rid of kid and then getting in too deep pretty well. However, I just didn't feel that much chemistry between her and Jang Geun Suk.

If you haven't seen the jdrama version or read the manga you will probably like this. The story is quirky, cute and funny. I loved it until I encountered the originals. I might rewatch this, especially if I want something super cute in a very short amount of time and I think everyone should try it BUT the Japanese version is better in my opinion. That being said, I cannot wait to try out the remake of the Jdrama with 16 episodes.

Kimi Wa Petto has one of the most original plots I have encountered considering the manga and the year. While the older woman and younger man trope has hit a boom in recent years, this show has more than just that in its value. Career, gender, tradition, public image, self image and worth, romance, [very little] sex, love, and age are all components of this show. Of course it varies from the read more manga somewhat, especially where it ends seeing as the actual manga was not finished in 2003 but 2005 and it is only !) episodes. However, it was very good. There is comedy, competition, romance, and even a little bit of heartbreak/angst - something to appeal to almost everyone. Compared to the Korean version (which I saw first) I prefer this version. Each version has it's own pros and cons but this version was a little more on the realistic side than its Korean film counterpart, which was a little disappointing. The cinematography was nice enough, some things showed its age, but nothing was wrong or annoying. The camera angles definitely enhanced the involvement of the viewer.

The acting was mostly pleasant, a little iffy at times, but never cringe-worthy. This is Kato Koyuki's first main role beyond a few minor parts in shows/films and modelling so it makes sense for her to be awkward at times, especially because stiffness is the main trait of her character Sumire. While she was not the best actress, it is nothing that can"t be ignored. No one was a super stand out star for me except the wonderful Matsumoto Jun, or rather, MoMo. He officially made this show, he was the best character out of everyone (in my opinion.) As much as I want to say I love Jang Geun Suk as MoMo in the Korean version, Matsumoto is the best. The other actors were pleasant enough to watch, especially Sumire's best friend. She was another fun character.

There wasn't too much music involved in the show. When it did occur it had good placement and the dance scenes were fun to watch. I could sense the passion and found them interesting, especially with it being more contemporary and expressive dancing.

Overall, I really loved this show even with its few flaws. It is also very rewatchable. I would reccommend this show to many people. There is also no weird feeling that makes you question Sumire's intentions with MoMo, something many complain about with the Korean film as being creepy. I think you should definitely watch this if you have time to kill, want something cute, have read the manga, or want to compare versions even. I'm also looking forward to watching the 16 episode Japanese remake, hopefully they can flesh the story out more.

One Missed Call is a movie everyone has probably at least heard of. For a horror movie fan it is almost like a staple, alongside The Ring and Grudge series. However, for me, it was not the best BUT it was more than okay. The story was original with a haunted phone, but it was another vengeful ghost story. What I really liked about the movie was the more mystery thriller tone read more rather than pure ghost driven themes - like with some movies i.e. The Grudge (Ju-On). I found myself a little surprised at times and even nervous at other moments.

The acting was pretty good. Nothing seemed exaggerated or sub-par. I didn't really find any new favorites but I didn't hate any of the cast members. They filled their roles well and seemed to work together well; there were no awkward moments or insincere times that I could catch.

As for music, it wasn't bad, but it was not stand out either. it seemed to be sort of your typical horror music to build suspense or draw attention to scenes. The sound effects fit well and nothing was distracting. I found it to be just "alright".

This movie could be rewatched, but I probably won't rewatch it. This would be good for Japanese movie fans and horror fans - it would be good to watch and compare to the American counterpart. For anyone wondering about my score, I have also seen the American version and I like this version better but I"m not a huge fan of either one. I would say it is good to watch once, especially if you have nothing else to watch. That being said, I will finish the series just so I can say I have seen them all. I might like the others better.

I found this show to be incredibly entertaining in various ways. I have seen this version and the Korean version, so there will be a few comparisons in this review.

The story is based on a manga so the show is not 100% original, but it is very good and was (in my opinion) very well done. While the Korean version focuses more on the sports and love triangle aspects, the Japanese read more story had more aspects to it, even with less episodes. While sports and romance are a part of this show, there is also an incredible emphasis put on friendship and growing up. I found this to be much more enjoyable. The show also utilizes the "extra characters" much more, showing how each person interacts. Of course, seeing as this is manga based there were over the top and exaggerated moments, but that added to its charm. There are the moments of heartbreak, disappointment and angst that seemed to fill the To the Beautiful You (Korean) and parts of the manga, but Hana Kimi highlighted more of the shenanigans and trouble high school boys and friends get into. I felt more of a draw to continue watching Hana Kimi and liked it more than its Korean counterpart.

The acting is what made this show a stand out for me. I found new favorite actors and was delighted with a couple of my well-known favorites that appeared too. Everyone played their parts so well and interacted with each other in the best manner possible. You can identify with struggles and with the passion they have. Each actor fills their role to the max and is on point completely. Not to mention there is not one ugly person in this show; it's eye-candy galore. No wonder they're known as the "hottie school".

For the amount of music in the show, it was not bad. The opening theme was a lot of fun and gets stuck in your head. I even downloaded it. However, I grew tired of the end theme fairly quick. The sound effects for the show were not bad at all, they were well-suited and did not draw unneeded attention. The few random shows throughout the episodes were fun as well, adding to the humor.

As for rewatching? I would totally rewatch this show and with it's length it wouldn't be hard to do so either. Rewatching would be a very good idea if you want to watch the performance of different actors/actresses each time, especially since it would be just as fun and enjoyable as the first watching.

Overall this was my favorite version of the show and I loved it for many reasons, the only thing that keeps it from having a perfect score is a little bit of a cliffhanger ending. That is supposedly addressed in the special though, so no big deal. I definitely think everyone should give this a show, especially if you have read the manga of seen one of the other versions. Nothing beats the original. :)

Ju-On: The Grudge 2 was, for me, a little better than Ju-On: The Grudge 1. This sequel was not only horror and suspense, but had a little bit more of a mystery tone to it; the only thing keeping the score from being higher was the slightly confusing ending. Despite the continued story of vengeful ghosts and the ending, it was a pretty good watch. The film consists of mini-stories, much like read more its predecessors, but they are placed a little more cohesively and the connections between past and present, people and places are more understandable.

The acting with this film was as expected, although the actress that reprises her role as Saeki Kayako (Fuji Takako) improved as far as body movements go. While her expressions and sounds have always been creepy, she utilized her body movements to create even more atmosphere with her character. Each actor and actress worked well within the characters they took on, but no one was a stand out star or super memorable - with the exception of Fuji Takako.

The music and sound effects were not much different from the previous films, but with a franchise known for certain key noises that can be expected, The placement of noises worked just fine, and effectively created suspenseful moments and built up the film's atmosphere; I enjoyed the actual song with lyrics during the end credits. It was refreshing compared to the other films with only instrumentals.

As for rewatch value, it is rewatchable. How often, of course, depends upon the person. I would watch it again after a little bit, especially because I am a huge horror fan. Every once in a while sounds about right, but not right away. If you like horror movies, want to see the Japanese counterpart to the Ju-On franchise, or even just feel the need to watch something a little spooky I would suggest this.

OVERALL: Ju-On was a very good movie. However, I will warn those who have watched the English version The Grudge - you may be somewhat underwhelmed. If you love the franchise or horror movies in general then you will (hopefully) love this movie, but it does have a few flaws that some may not be able to get past.

STORY: Honestly, this is in a way just another ghost film. So the read more story is not 100% new, there are other movies about ghosts and possessed or haunted homes. BUT this movie does unique things with the story, focusing on the connections between people and places, rather than focusing on a singular person or place in a static manner. Everything ties together and has reasoning, making it not only horror and suspense but a little bit of a mystery as well. There are six stories within this first installment and each are equally entertaining. the suspense is there though it is more subtle than it's later English language counterpart. The film was made in the early 2000's and shows its older age with overall video quality, certain camera angles, and clothing but those things do not distract from the movie.

ACTING: The acting is not superb, I do not remember anyone as a stand out award winning actor. However, no one was bad. The dialogue shows some dating at times, but that is just because of the age of the film. Some characters are immediately recognizable and others are less memorable. Everyone seemed to suit their roles just fine, and I did not grow tired of anyone or hate any of the performances.

MUSIC: There was not much music in this film to begin with. What little music that exists in the film is well placed and does not distract from or dilute any of the performances or scenes. The sound effects were not as well pronounced and obvious as with the newer versions (this could be because of the older quality or the understated qualities that build suspense, I personally think both cases are true). The sound effects are well placed and really were one of the creepiest aspects of the film.

REWATCH VALUE: This film is not that long, approximately one and a half hours. With the six "mini-stories" time quickly passes. The film was enjoyable and creepy as well. These could make it a very rewatchable movie or a movie one only watches very so often - it depends on personal taste. Some may be bored, others may be too scared, others may love it. I honestly would watch it again. Actually, I hope I can find a better quality on dvd to own!
