"Dick Man" uses creativity in his favor, is a bittersweet comedy with no sex or nudity scenes, totally harmless, tells the story in a simple but objective way, has a chronologically perfect comic and solid narrative. The cast is one of the best, the acting is excellent. The soundtrack is nice as is cinematography. If you are looking for a juvenile comedy film with charismatic characters and a loose and uncomplicated narrative, read more "Dick Man" is a great recommendation!

It is not one of the scariest but tells the story about the surviving half of a conjured twin who begins to "see" her dead sister when she returns home to visit her dying mother. Through flashbacks, we learn how the beautiful relationship between the sisters turns into a repressive bond that forced one of the sisters to ask for her mother's support for a separation. When one of the twins dies, read more she revives angrily from death to chase after her sister. Strong story, strong cast dealing with recognizable themes such as sibling rivalries, romantic jealousies and good family guilt. Very good!
A flawless script, and story fleeing from the conventional to a psychological drama with the main character insane and having visions, as the psychologist says, because of his guilty complex or simply as a frightening spooky story with limited but efficient use of effects Special conditions.

The countenance of perfection!
Who cares about critics when a movie can represent someone's life on the big screen.
"Bokura in Gohan wa Ashita of Matteru" has a common but well written story with a perfect chronological narrative.
The genre bending comedy is also present, I loved it, it's not every day we see women taking initiative and picking on heavy and men doing light and domestic things, based on a novel read more by Maiko Seo, "Our Meal for Tomorrow" by Masahide Ichii is another unconventional romantic drama.
In the cast we have Ryota Hayama (Yuto Nakajima), high school student (Nakajima is a member of the popular boy boy Hey! Say! Jump), but is a lonely and sensitive when the movie begins. Then a girl from her class, Koharu Uemura (Yuko Araki), asks her to partner with her in a sack race ...
Working from the script itself, the film follows the reverse gender relationship - emotionally vulnerable face and mentally primordial girl with no ...
The story also features twists of often-seen plots, both medical and romantic, though their treatment of them is more original than normal.
"Bokura no Gohan wa Ashita de Matteru" is a love story any but for me it is one of the most impressive and cute I have ever seen. It's worth watching!

"Love Embarrassed" was very good, the story tells of two college students where she, Tang Ai ends up living a forced love with another and gets pregnant.
Seven years later Chen Gong rediscovers her university love Tang Ai, now single with a seven-year-old daughter to take care of. Both will go through numerous trials and storms.
Cinematography and casting are great strengths, as the conflicting storyline of the plot is a show read more apart, the soundtrack and a good deal of emotions make Love Embarrassed a very good conflicting drama.

"Iron Girl: Ultimate Weapon" is a medium-length Japanese film,
Contains violence, nudity and action, the world has gone to hell. The main character is played by Kirara Asuka, a beautiful actress with a memorable performance, who is better known as AVs than acting on the big screen. His character lost his memory and had to fight the bad guys to get him back.
The CGI effects and cinematography are sometimes good, sometimes read more not. Action and nudity are acceptable. It's a bit humorous, too. And the theme of women who control men with Vaginapower is fun.

I knew nothing about the novel before watching this film, and only watched half of the drama but I thought the movie had more charming actors/performances and better CGI/set design by a long shot. The actors in the drama are stiff - not in a shy, introverted way, but in a dull plastic doll way. I was far more entertained by this movie.

That being said, the movie really fumbled with its read more pacing. The first 1.5 hours was focused on the leads falling in love - the last 0.5 hours was everything else under the sun. If the directors wanted to cover everything in the novel, then they should've paced it better. But since there were so many disparate topics and characters, I believe cutting certain storylines out would have benefited the movie. Without giving spoilers, there were certain one-sided-love stories that, though perhaps had a point in the original source, were just a waste of time in the film.

The film did a good job as a visually pleasing, light romantic film exploring the gaming world and college student world... but its representation of the heart of the source material is questionable. But it was definitely created to be something of the former than the latter (dat ending hashtag doe)

also - Jing Boran is so. handsome.

YIKES... I thought I could enjoy the movie because I'm a fan of Zheng Kai (through running man) and I liked a similar film, One Night Surprise, but this... was just a really bad movie. It probably deserves a lower overall score.

The film has elements of slapstick, exaggerated characters, ridiculous situations, terrible nosy parents, useless supporting characters, crude/criminal decisions made by the leads... and nothing to redeem it. The romance? wasn't read more rooting for any of them. The actors did well with the terrible script, I suppose. And the music wasn't detrimental to the film.

The movie left me asking why, why did I just watch this, and made me feel like a worse person for watching it.

Perhaps this review is biased because I am in love with Fan Bing Bing, but overall I found this Chinese rom-com to be a very good Chinese rom-com - meaning, yes, expect the slap stick comedy, that one scene that is poorly CGI-ed, and the often ridiculous storyline. But what's a good rom-com without all these traits? I digress.

Fan Bing Bing and all her supporting men have amazing chemistry in this read more drama. Her character is the beautiful, successful, and single character leading a lot of rom-coms nowadays, but Bing Bing makes the character relatable and memorable. Watching her on her Mamma-Mia-esque quest to find the baby daddy didn't drag on, until a bit of angst set in near the end of the film. But the conclusion was worth it, as all the character remain likable throughout.

The wardrobe and set styling were all beautiful throughout the drama, as was the smooth directing by Eva Jin. As the writer/director of this film, you can see a lot of similarities with her past work, Sophie's Revenge, but a LOT of improvements as well.

This movie remains one of my favorite romantic comedies, would recommend if you're in the mood for something light, silly, and aesthetically pleasing (Aarif is so so handsome and how does Bing Bing look so young in this).

the plot of the movie is slow. i found myself waiting for something good to happen but that didn't. its a depressing movie. the acting is amazing i was crying like a baby but its so sad. bad friends. i didn't find any moral or lesson or message behind this movie, that's just my opinion. its not too bad but i wouldnt watch it again. this made me think way worse on read more the concept of "friendship". However i did enjoy the few funny moments between them which were SO little. also the acting was spot on.

You won't be prepared for this movie and this might give you some anime-like (Hayao-Miyazaki) vibes.
The story is marvellously written, in the movie the topic that was handeled can be seen in the real life food industry and that makes the story utterly sad. It is an unique movie, because it is realistic in a certain way.
The story picks up fast and in the last hour it leaves out no read more time to proceed fast, I wished they stayed on some scenes longer to give more of an impact but that is just a minor flaw in my opinion.
The cast was amazing and I really appreciated the collab between Korean actors and American ones. It was difficult in the beginning because Jake's acting was too much, but that is the way Bong Joon-Ho produces its movies and I am happy he stayed true to himself.
The music was beautiful at certain scenes, not all of them.

Overall I really liked this movie, certainly ones that impact me (it left me crying) but also made me think about the food industry. In my opinion I don't see this as a propaganda but as a supernatural movie with a deep message, it makes a valid point.

Watch this and you won't be dissapointed, try to look over the over-reacting actions from some actors but see the message behind this movie.

An action-noir film and a completely alien cinematic experience, flooded with reds, purple and strange masks.
In a fictional crime-filled Seoul, Tae-young is a skillful and relentless problem solver who built a flashy casino. Sessions with a psychiatrist guide him to a mysterious path where he goes head-to-head against a masked journalist who may be his doppelgänger and a crime boss who wants a cut of his gambling business. At least, that's read more what I think happened ...
The film is terribly long, extremely sexist and almost incomprehensible.
Whether it is the result of careful calculation or pure madness, this is one of the most unique Korean films that have emerged in years. Over 137 minutes, the story is divided into three chapters: the intriguing 'Birth', the confused 'VS', and the 'Real' completely bananas, when the tenuous wires of logic are stolen once and for all for an exciting finale Of field.

The narration is rather obscure, the ending is a bit malicious. Almost like a most fantastic nightmare you've ever seen. Visually, sane and wise, it is simply inspiring.
"Rigor Mortis" makes you travel in the fanciful, extremely poetic and disturbing rather than awful, which may explain some high rankings.
The Japanese horror elements are there, but carefully blended with Chinese folklore. The story ends up making good sense in general, if you're read more patient enough, even if some elements remain a bit confusing. Watching this movie is like taking a picture of something that shocks most people.

The movie though has four sequences is not very fun or exciting.
The cinematography is exciting in certain other scenes leaves to be desired, CGI is weak, beast soundtrack, a novel very focused and poorly developed, good acting robotic cast.

"Go Find a Psychic!" Uses the characters and settings in an indiscreet way in this movie that enhances the fun. This is a movie about finding authentic psychics. The characters are nice, and that's all there is to a good movie. The plot, though good, leads to a sort of fantasy ending, which, in the hands of a regular director, would be a bad thing.
The end is a kind of top-notch read more thing that leaves you reflecting for a long time. "Go Find a Psychic!" Is a comedy movie, but inspiring yet not a movie that makes you want to review it.
