++++++ POSITIVES +++++
+ The characters are very well developed and they all have their own story that the writers are kind enough to share with us.

+ The actors were all really talented and made their characters feel very realistic and believable. They also did a splendid job with the chemistry. Even if there were few love scenes, they were sending me all the right signals to make a romance possible.

+ The story as a whole is very interesting and keeps you at the edge of your seat. The way everything comes together, case by case was a very nice build up to the final boss.

+ The sound track is perfect and all the songs will be on your "To download" list.

------ NEGATIVES ------
- They were repeating scenes over and over even though the scenes were not important and I didn't gain any information from watching it again with a few extended seconds. Fine if it's to remind the viewer of something but in this case it seemed to be to extend the episodes.

- The emphasis was on the drama and the action. I wish there was more case solving and that they kept more secrets. Because they were so out in the open with everything, the build up to the climax disappeared since the show was just one big climax in itself. They should have worked more with the dynamic of having calm, informative parts and then shock the viewer with something instead of mixing it all together. I got bored.

- The whole series felt like I was going around in circles. Some events would happen multiple times without contributing anything to the story. Instead it would just make the characters seem more incompetent and at last, it was hard to take everything seriously because the likeliness of it happening was reaching zero.

- Some lose ends were never tied and some motives where never found. The ending felt very lazy to me.

======= SUMMARY ======

So to sum it all up, the characters were well developed and the actors where excellent. The sound track gave the perfect feels for every scene and the chemistry was spot on. On the other hand, scenes where being unnecessarily reused often, without contributing anything to the story and I felt like the whole show was going around in circles. Events would happen multiple times which caused them to become less believable every time I saw them happen again. This made the entire story feel dragged, repetitive and longer than it needed to be. Not to mention that although the ending was daring and pretty good, it created a big plot hole and left us with some untied lose ends.

~~~~~~ RECOMMENDED ~~~~~~
If you like action with a story, a little bit of romance, vengeance, lies and deceit, this is the poop for you. You will see people getting shot, falling off buildings, a bit of blood, a few fighting scenes and a whole lot of kick ass. This is not a "solve it yourself" type of criminal series though. You will be hand held through out the entire show, with the answers given to you one by one as the episodes go on. You will encounter a few psychos without motives and quite a few murder attempts. If you want romantic skinship in loads, leave now. This show does not have the focus in that sort of place.

With that said...

... enjoy!!!

... Because gender doesn't matter, let's kiss!

+ Positives
- Negatives
= Summary
~ Recommend to

+++++ POSITIVES +++++
+ The plot was very original and very good. While watching it I couldn't really find anything wrong with their logic

+ The characters were very interesting. I loved how some of them had a similar past but choose different futures for themselves. While some got desperate and walked down the bitter road, some chose to work harder. The writers did a great job highlighting the importance of knowing that you always have a choice and life is what you make of it.

+ Every single character had a character development. Whether it was for the better or for the worse.


+ The producers did a great job mixing different atmospheres together. While this drama discusses very important matters, they managed to also include some excitement, romance and comedy. There wasn't a boring moment


+ Apart from the plot being original, the stories progression was very original as well. As a viewer I thought I could predict how the drama was going to unravel but I was proven wrong so many times. The experience was truly refreshing.

+ The actors did a great job. I didn't feel bothered by anyone on screen.

+ The writers didn't exclude any possibilities. Instead of having the female lead just stand in fear and scream, she actually tried her best in dangerous situations. Kisses were also not only carried out between men and women but also between women and women and men with men (when needed....it happened once ^^ )

----- NEGATIVES -----
- The editing could use some more work. Sometimes the clips felt random and kind of ruined the mood. This, however, isn't something I think will bother the average viewer. If you're in some sort of film production major then maybe...

- The music was sometimes cut off very abruptly which is never a very good thing. Some song selections were not that fitting to the scene either but this didn't happen that often.

- There are only 10 episodes but I felt like I went on a life adventure. A lot of things will happen in each episode which means you will not have a boring moment. This also means that there will be plot holes here and there and the story will feel kind of out of focus sometimes.

===== SUMMARY =====
This is a drama with a very original plot which unravels in a very original way. Although time traveling is a difficult theme to pull off without causing plot holes, I think the writers did a good job in avoiding such things while building a good environment for the concept. The characters were interesting and deep and I love how the viewer gets to see them grow throughout the drama. The show really highlights what a great impact, the choices you make, have on your own life and how you always have the power to change your future. With all the mystery, comedy, romance and crime, you wont have a chance to get bored and will probably binge the shizz out of this drama.

~~~~~ RECOMMEND TO ~~~~~
I recommend this to people......
....I can't put this in a special category. I recommend this to everyone. It has crime, mystery, comedy, just the right amount of romance, suspense, a good plot and nice characters. You really can't ask for more. The kisses had chemistry, they were not afraid to show bed scenes, there was some stabbing here and there.... I don't know why you shouldn't watch this so go watch it now...

ENJOY!!!

...because lolicons are feminists that like kids....

+ Positives
- Negatives
= Summary
~ Recommend to

+++++ POSITIVES +++++
+ The characters were spot on. The writers really captured the actions and looks of the original characters and I wouldn't have changed them one bit.

+ The actors were great. Most of the cast are really big names and they are big names for a reason. I feel like this sort of slap stick comedy fit all of them perfectly and they really managed to pull off their characters facial expressions and energy. It really felt like a real life anime.

+ The script is very close to the original with only a few original scenes added to it. A conservative Gintama fan would be proud.

+ The fighting scenes were really well made and looked great. Except for succeeding with the flow of the fight, they added effects that fit just right to give it the anime feel.

----- NEGATIVES -----
- The CG was really bad and the explosions looked like something out of a bad movie. Sometimes they made it work but for the most part they didn't. Because the whole theme of Gintama is a parody on.... pretty much everything... the bad effects are not a problem it's just that they might bother the eye a bit.

- The progress was a bit awkward if you look at the story as a whole. For those who haven't seen the anime, nothing really make sense and the precious values that they are trying to push throughout the movie kind of come across as forced or rushed. They really could have built it better.

===== SUMMARY =====
When it comes down to it, I can't really rate this movie on how much I liked it but rather on how well it lived up to it's anime origin. This live action was based on a very loud, energetic anime so obviously it will try to capture that same energy and I think they did a really good job. I felt like I was watching an anime with real people in it. This is thanks to the great actors and the wonderful writers who decided to stay true to the original work. Although the CG could have been better and the story was a little fuzzy, it has somewhat of a story line and because it's a parody, the CG was quickly forgiven.

~~~~~ RECOMMEND TO ~~~~~
I recommend this to people who like loud, self aware, shounen parodies with simple slapstick humor, sexual jokes and a lot of references to other anime, comics or the actors themselves. The plot is not the strongest, but it definitely brightens up ones day and lightens the mood. Prepare to laugh!

ENJOY!

...Because kohais that don't knock are the worst...

+Positives
-Negatives
=Summary
~Recommend to

(I will be comparing to the anime since I didn't read the manga)

+++++POSITIVES+++++
+ The actors did an amazing job! I'm not a big fan of Kubota Masataka but he is one of the best actors to play mentally disturbed. The way he goes all out in acting completely insane, amazes me. Good work! All the other actors were very believable as well. They found the perfect cast for this LAA

+ The way they portrayed the whole setting gave a very uncomfortable and creepy atmosphere which I think is something the anime did well but the LAA did better. Although the anime has some light moments, this goes all out in making the viewer feel the darkness which automatically brands this into pure horror. Don't get me wrong, the constant horror atmosphere is not a bad thing because they did it well.

+ Making an anime arc into a movie is not easy but they did a good job. I feel like they captured all the necessary milestones while keeping everything relevant and then wrapping it up nicely, leaving room for a sequel but not necessarily needing one.

+ The props were great. The contacts and the gore looked very realistic and it didn't look proppy at all.

+ There's a car crash scene that looks super lit!

-----NEGATIVES-----
- Kubota Masataka delivered a great performance but over did it slightly. I miss the warmer part of Kaneki Ken which they didn't include in this movie. Even when he wasn't going completely mental, Masataka displayed Ken as a very disturbed person even before he turned into a ghoul which isn't how I remember him.

- The CG is not the best but it's not the worst. They really did their best on the special effects but I would lie if I said that they didn't bother me. It kind of brought down the quality a bit

- Another thing I felt brought down the quality was the fighting scenes. The sound effects were off and the actors didn't stage the hits properly so it all kind of looked a bit ridiculous. Stage fighting is not an easy task but with some proper editing, mistakes can be hidden. Instead, the producers tried to highlight the punches leading into an exposure of all the mistakes.

===== SUMMARY =====
Here we go...

A great live action adaption that captured all the necessities from the first season of the anime and kept it all unraveling smoothly. I didn't feel like they missed anything from the anime and the red thread was there throughout the entire film. The actors did a great job and the props and the gore were perfect. It made everything look realistic and definitely sent me into a horror frenesi. Although the writers only managed to capture the dark side of the story, they did an amazing job with the atmosphere making it into a great horror film. The CG and the fighting scenes needed some work but we can't have everything in this world, now can we?

~~~~~ RECOMMEND TO ~~~~~
I recommend this to people with strong stomachs who like dark, bloody horror with a plot. You will see some gory and disgusting visuals along with some really disturbing people eating people footage. Not to mention the creepy red eyed creatures lurking in the darkness and vomiting ghouls.

ENJOY!!

...Because "Summer dream"....

A very cliché and unoriginal movie but it was an okay watch. I think it would have been better if they had made it into a drama. That way they could have made it more original with some more depth and development. The characters were hallow and didn't really have a purpose or back story. No visible development in personalities or relationships even though it was necessary to make the story believable. All in all the watcher is basically just scraping off the surface.

As for the tags, I wouldn't press too much on the comedy part. It's not a sad movie or anything, it's just not funny.

I skipped the last 20 minutes of the movie because it was the climax and it had them play the title song for the movie AGAIN. Had they not played the same song for 1 h and 40 mins already, I would have watched it.

It's definitely a music movie but I think they should have extended the soundtrack a bit because as a viewer I got extremely bored of it extremely fast.

The acting was not bad. Although none of the characters had facial expressions it wasn't something that bothered me. For all the Jay Park fans out there, although he had a supporting role, he did a good job for someone who doesn't usually act.

I recommend this movie to people who want something a bit more serious but not too deep or emotional. If your feelings are easily moved then maybe this will be enough stimulation for you. If you're a fan of old school K- pop groups I think you wont get tired of the soundtrack and you might enjoy the show.

ENJOY!!

...Because he stole my imaginary golf ball...

This movie has a very soothing and calming feel to it even though it contains so many heart racing events. The two leads have no lines through out the entire film, but they really didn't need any with the amazing soundtrack and the wonderful acting. Their expressions really said it all.

For those who are watching because of the mature tag; The mature tag is there because of violence not because of sex.

Do not fear the violence though, they do not display it carelessly so even a softy like me could watch it without a problem. There will be some exposure to blood though so sensitive watchers have been warned.

I recommend this movie to people who enjoy the art of film. It has a very slow pace and as I said before, most of the scenes have no dialogue, therefore this type of motion picture might appear boring unless you find the beauty in it.

ENJOY!!

..... Because eating it is okay...

I don't have anything to complain about so this review will look a bit different from my usual...

Alright let's go!

The acting was great and the casting was surprisingly uplifting. I think they picked great actors for each and every one of the characters and they all did a perfect job. I have to admit that Winry could have been a bit more realistic. Even though it's been a while since I watched the Fullmetal Alchemist anime, I do not remember her being this girly and passive.... anyway...

The CG that we all feared is actually the best I've ever seen, coming from japan. it did have some minor misses here and there but it didn't bother me as much as other CG movies have in the past. Most of the effects were very beautifully done and they did a great job with the Gate of Truth and Al. I am so impressed and moved!

Going into the story, they did a very good summary of A PART of the Manga/ anime. It's a given that a live action movie with a 2 h running time wont be the exact copy of it's original but thankfully they did not change that much. I personally think the writers did a great job staying within their limits and keeping it familiar to FMA fans such as myself.

I really want to give extra credit to the director for his beautiful art work with this live action. It's been a while since I saw a movies as passively beautiful as this one. Some scenes were just shot in the perfect place with the perfect light during the perfect situation from just the right angle and it gave me such strong impressions.

I'm not a crier but I cried and I will let you guess which scene that caused it. Prepare for a challenge because the creators did an amazing job with relaying emotions here. Everything I felt okay with watching in the anime provoked such strong feelings in this adaption and that is one of the most important things to get right when making a movie.

Hopefully this will get a sequel because the writers did not end the journey after the end credits. which was a very wise decision in my opinion. Had they tried to finish the whole story within the run time of this movie, it would have felt rushed and everything would have felt out of place. I am also pretty sure we would have lost a whole lot of detail and plot resulting in another AoT failure.

I have a lot more to say but I will end my review here.

============SUMMARY===============

This adaption is one of the best I have ever seen of a Manga/ Anime and I think it was amazingly executed with great CG, great actors and accurate roles with all their relationships and situations intact. The camera work was art and all the emotions were properly relayed to the audience. Luckily, the writers were wise enough to only cover a part of the story in this movie so let's hope the sequel is released soon!

ENJOY!!!

I love Ishihara Satomi and Yamashita Tomohisa so seeing a Romcom with these as leads were amazing.

This drama made me laugh a lot. Although it is based on a manga and I haven't read that manga, it was very entertaining to watch. I usually am an impatient person when it comes to romance dramas and around the end of it I get bored of the whole thing, but I didn't feel that way while watching this. That's why this one stands out a bit more than the rest of the romcoms I've watched.

I recommend it to romance lovers and happy people!

ENJOY!

Abandoning logic to keep the plane from crashing when it's your only parachute

A fantasy, romance drama with a slight crime twist to it and some comedic elements.

This contains
- An awkward female lead with the ability to foresee the future in her dreams
- Your typical arrogant, handsome male lead who will be the boyfriend against all odds.
- A handsome, second male lead
- Your typical love triangle
- Potential murders, crimes and accidents
- Some blood, and graphic scenes. (On a light level)
- The unraveling of a past secret
- Interesting and creative plot twist.
- Refreshing comedy
- Hand holding investigations

Personally, I think the writers got a bit too excited in creating the origin of her powers. The story didn't really make sense to me and it was almost falling apart with plot holes.

I also think that the pace was awkward at times. Characters would have their personality or relationship change in a very sudden and uncomfortable way, which made everything feel a bit out of the blue and unrealistic. On top of that I found them a bit dull and hard to love. This could be a side affect from some of the actors not performing very well.

The pace was a bit too slow for my personal taste.

There were some major medical misses that should have gotten more attention.

RECOMMEND

If you tend to analyze dramas and movies, are easily bothered by production or writing mistakes, recognize good and bad acting, like to play sherlock while watching crime and have strong preferences, this is probably not for you.

instead I'd recommend this drama to those who want to spice up their every day comedy romance dramas or too those who started watching Korean dramas recently. This is because the drama introduces many tags without going in too deep on any of them. The romance, comedy, crime, law and graphics are all light and the plot is not too deep or difficult to like while it stays interesting and fresh to new viewers.

ENJOY!!

...because for some reason I could not binge it 100%...

If you're not sure about watching this drama, let me help you decide. WATCH IT. It will be worth your time.

Although there are not many plot twists, the writers did a good job in preventing it from getting too predictable or boring. It had just the right amount of comic relief to level out all the seriousness and if you're a hopeless romantic, you're going to love the fact that this drama is packed with couple cuteness.

If you're not a hopeless romantic, don't worry, neither am I and I was not that bothered by it since it gave more depth to the characters, which I feel, was a big plus, since non-stereotypical characters have been rare lately. I feel like the writers got creative and made some memorable favorites. Not to mention the amazing cast who did an incredible job in all the settings and scenes.

Yes, there is a triangle (I feel like there always is) but it does not cover much screen time and it wasn't the kind of triangle that makes the drama frustrating to watch. The girl doesn't pace back and forth between the boys. It's a very comfortable change from one love to the other.

I also want to warn you about the comedy. It's very loud and over the top so when you enter the world of Do Bong Soon, brace yourself. It is so worth it though because some scenes were adlibs that the producers decided to keep. Those are hilarious.

With all that said, I don't think I left any important details out....

.....ENJOY!!

Im dropping this drama half way through episode 10 so I will not leave a rating.

This drama had a good start. Fine, it's not the most original story but sometimes remakes can hit home. This didn't.

I'm gonna start with the conclusion for the lazy readers.

The story is not so original but I had hopes for it anyway. Sadly they couldn't keep it logical and used tricks to make things go the way they wanted. The romance is not believable and the acting is not very good. This combination made the romance unbearable and the script, very cheesy. The development didn't make sense and they included a very disturbing and unwanted love implying incest.

Here is my more detailed review:

The reason I'm saying this is because this is one of those dramas that abandon all logic to make it go the way the writers want it to. The curse is used in a way that doesn't really make sense or have meaning. As far as the 10 episodes I've watched there is no explanation to why it exist (Maybe they bring it up later? i don't know) or how it works. The only thing that's presented to us is that The first son's first wife will be used as a sacrifice for the guarding spirit of their house hold.

I don't see this as a problem considering that in 2014 Korea it's not unusual for people to live together or be intimate with each other without being married. Even if it would be frowned upon I seriously think the people would make an exception, considering they're saving someone's life.

I also found the romance development ridiculous. I wasn't feeling it at all and it felt rushed, which is weird since there are still 6 more episodes to go. It's like there's an unfinished battle between them but all of a sudden they're in love. I feel like they use the running time the wrong way and the last 3 episodes will probably be dragged out romance.

To make it worse, Yang Jin Sung isn't the best actress in my book since she always shows 6 different emotions at a time but it was bearable because of Lee Hong Ki. Not because he is especially talented but because he's charming.

This drama is also filled with contradiction and a hint of incestial thoughts in it. You can list as many excuses you want to why it's not incest but if you think about it, the basic principal is still there.

But there's a crazy lady that hits people so...

....ENJOY!!

Can't rate this (The suggested overall rating for this drama was 1.5/ 10 )

...Because cringe....

This drama has 8 episodes, each episode being between 15 - 20 min long.
It does not have a worked out plot, no real character development or character background, it has a very fast pace and plenty of plot holes.

Prepare for many cringy scenes and a lot of bad acting.
(Comedy, romance and drama should not be tags in this drama)

I'd recommend this for drama watchers who are very tired and just need something brainless to watch.

It did have one good point though; The BL parodies were too frikkin funny, I enjoyed those parts the most but I they also made me cringe a bit extra.

ENJOY!!

= Summary =

Recommended for ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
People who enjoy sweet romance moments, love triangles, team spirit and light conflict would love this. It's your typical Korean high school flick with all the usual elements that make a child friendly romance drama. If you're feeling tired of deep, dark plots and reality hitting too hard, relax your heart and your mind with this very brainless, bingable, ROMANCE, sports, creation.

Negatives ---------------------------------------------------
- The acting is not very good.
- Even though the plot wasn't original they could have given it an original twist, but they didn't.
- There is a SMALL character development but not really memorable.
- The pace was uncomfortable things were happening in a very hasty manner.
- It's supposed to be a drama focusing on sports but the romance stole the spotlight.
- Some scene cuts were very random
- The characters were hollow

Positives ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+ It was ridiculously easy to binge watch.
+ The romance scenes were cute even though they were kind of random.
+ Even though the script could have used more work, the shots were pretty good.
+ This can still be enjoyed if you want to rest your brain and just smile.

Summary ==============================
Each episode is about 15 minutes and there are 20 episodes in total. If this was a 30 min episode drama, it would get cut down to about 10 episodes, which is more than enough to get a good story across and introduce the characters well enough for us to feel and sympathize with them. Sadly, this drama does NOT do that.

For a 2016 drama it is pretty out-dated and it has countless cliché scenes that have been done too many times before. There is a fine line between cheesy re-runs and classic heart flutter.

The acting was not that good but I feel like the writers are to blame for that. The characters were not very well developed and most of them didn't even have a back story, which I feel is kind of sad. A deeper connection with the people in focus would have lifted this series so much.

I will not allow the lack of episodes or time, excuse the fact that this drama lacks in detail. Instead of all the unnecessary romance scenes or unneeded conflict, they could have given the drama more depth.

So this was a review of ROMANCE with a sprinkle of volley boll

ENJOY!

... Because the passion level went from 0 to 9000 in a second...

Note to all the confused people:

This is NOT a movie about homosexuals, it is NOT YAOI and it is NOT BL.

This is a movie about two straight males who perform method acting to become closer with their roles. In other words they do things to trick their own mind into being who they portray in the play.

This will start off very innocently with a veteran actor starring in the same theater play as the idol, Young Woo who shows no interest or passion at the first few readings. I honestly don't know why it starts off like that because a few minutes in, he suddenly starts to show a lot of passion and the writers didn't do a very good job explaining the process or the reason. He just suddenly loves it which is why this movie got a 9/10.

But once you get passed that...

This movie starts off very bright and innocent with a comfortable pace that gives off kind of a dreamy feel. The writers succeeded very well in making a calm atmosphere for the viewer without using dragged out scenes or unnecessary shots. It wont leave the audience soothed for too long before it takes a dramatic and dark turn that will keep you at the edge of your seat.

The way the writers have mixed the main leads dialogues with their characters dialogues is the most genius thing I have ever experienced. It makes it difficult to tell if the person is acting as their theater persona or if they actually mean what they're saying. Because the characters themselves are not sure whether they are acting or not, reality and theater slowly sink into one another and become one world of confusion.

There will be a few kissing scenes between the two male leads but this shouldn't be something to warn about. it helps convince the viewer of the feelings involved and gives a harder impact once we near the climax so do not fear it.

I recommend this to people who like watching mind twisting and dark movies. You will definitely have to pay attention and try to understand both the actors and the characters. This is not a light watch but rather something to prepare your heart for.

...Because apparently women cant't do anything except get hit in the face...

This drama has a dark atmosphere and will make you feel frustration and helplessness. It's like screaming when no one's listening.

For the sensitive viewers:
It does not contain any grotesque scenes to be honest. The worst you will encounter is insanity. Other than that, sharp objects or other unpleasant things will be blurred out. (Of course, this is South Korean television were talking about. People are sent to the army but are not allowed to see sharp objects or dead animals... dead humans are fine though... )

I did not cry one single time!

The plus side:
The acting was very good. I think they all did a very good job. Considering how difficult the characters must have been to portray I think everyone did it perfectly.

It was well executed. The pace was comfortable and it was filmed in a very creepy way.

The minus side:
The women drove me a bit crazy. For some reason the after taste of this drama, tasted like WEAK WOMEN. I felt like all women in this drama were so fragile. Even a little push would break them. The men though, they were punching and kicking like animals...

I would have wanted some romance. The focus was in the right place but giving the audience one emotion for all 16 episodes is like chewing gum. It loses taste. I would have wanted the writers to fit in some physical contact between Sang Mi and Dong Cheol (Don't get me wrong. I mean a hug or something). If you watch this drama you will understand how much it would help. It wouldn't have to be a big deal. Just show a different kind of weakness. The one where you take a second to borrow strength, then recharge.

All in all, it was executed perfectly and it had a great story. I'm Just crabby cause I'm picky

This is the "forced into a cult with your family and being the only sane one, while society is too corrupt to save you" drama.

ENJOY!
