When I first heard about this drama (before it started airing) I laughed at the plot and how very, very weird it sounded. However, since i've enjoyed some of Yamapi's past drama's I decided to check out the first episode...and then I got hooked!

Story 10/10: As odd as the plot sounded, this drama actually has a good amount of everything(except action...unless you count Yamapi running with music playing in the background as action.) The plot is fantastic, but I think the biggest obstacle to it's success was the fact that it deals with death(every single episode), and most people would rather not watch anything that has such a heavy subject in it. Personally, I didn't mind and rather enjoyed that unorthodox aspect of it.

Acting 10/10: Flawless and usual. Every single cast member was perfect. Yamapi, Eikura Nana, the actors who play the family members, and everyone else did an amazing job.

Music 7/10: I think I remember only one song or maybe they just had one song played over and over again. I can't remember. The one song was actually pretty good (Yamapi was the singer), but the lack of their being more memorable variety is what made me give it a 7/10.

Rewatch Value 6/10: I don't usually rewatch dramas but since the success of this drama doesn't really hinge on surprise, I would give this a 6 for rewatch (which is very high for me.)

Overall 10/10: I looked forward to new episodes of this drama every single week and that is rare for me. For people who haven't seen it yet, I would say at least watch the first episode and give it a chance. I'd even go as far as saying it's a masterpiece drama that deserves more fans.

First let me explain how and why I started watching The Ultimate Weapon. I've been studying ancient Chinese history in the last few weeks and so last night I was in the mood to watch a few Ancient Chinese historical movies. This movie is set in Korea, with the Manchu's (who form the Qing Dynasty in China) try to invade Korea in 1936. So I started watching this movie and my review is below:

Story 7/10: I enjoyed the beginning very much, but after that it started going downhill for me. The middle dragged on and on, lots of arrows were flung around. The ending wasn't my type of ending either. It was definitely a twist but not one I enjoyed.


Acting/Cast 9/10: The acting itself was superb, but the characters felt really undeveloped to me. Especially the sister.

Music 9/10: I can't complain about the music. It was ok, conveyed the mood decently. Other than that though, it wasn't memorable.

Rewatch Value 3/10: I don't really rewatch movies or dramas, but this movie in particular I would not rewatch ever.

Overall 6/10: It wasn't bad. It wasn't good. If you want an action packed historical thriller with a very simple plot, then this is the movie for you.

Let me first explain how I got to watching this drama. I was going on a trip so I filled up on random dramas in case I got bored on the trip, among those dramas was this drama Stairway to Heaven, which I had heard so much about. So the trip comes and goes and one night I end up without internet, unable to sleep, and so I start watching this. In hindsight, I'm both glad and sad to have made that choice. Now onto the review:

Story: 11/10 (because 10/10 is just not enough!): The story is very unique for me (maybe because this was my first drama of this genre). You end up hating the stepmother/stepsister so much that you want to jump into their world, and stab both...repeatedly. What else can I say? Oh right, keep a box of tissues handy otherwise you'll be wiping away your tears using your blanket(true story!) One other thing I enjoyed about this drama is seeing how the main male lead and the secondary male lead work together to accomplish a goal greater than either of them.

Acting/Cast: 10/10 . Everyone in this cast from the child actors from the first few episodes to the adult actors were PERFECT. I had one small dislike in the middle of the drama, and that was how the main female lead cried. Yes. That's all. Later on, I got used to it and it didn't bother me at all, so it was just me.

Music 9/10: I'm actually listening to the OST as im writing this review. It's GREAT, but not a 10. It conveyed the emotion perfectly and all that, so it was good for the drama...but for some reason giving it a 10 would be unfair in my humble opinion.

Rewatch Value: 5/10: I DON'T rewatch dramas or movies 99% of the time which is why I gave it this low of a score.

Overall: 10/10 - This is a masterpiece that every Kdrama fan should watch. But keep in mind, this can cause tears even from the eyes of manly men like myself. However, sometimes while those tears are dropping, your mouth will be smiling uncontrollably.

I first chose to watch this movie because it starred Jackie Chan and the trailer looked incredibly good. So I came into this movie expecting an action packed Jackie Chan-esque War Thriller.

Story 7/10: The story was the 1911 revolution in China that overthrew the Qing Dynasty. The story itself was interesting, but the way it was presented was decent at best.

Acting 10/10: I can't complain about the acting. The characters were believable, which is about all an actor can do.

Music 7/10: The music was ok. It didn't stand out much.

Rewatch Value 1/10: I'm generally not a rewatcher, and since I disliked this film i definitely would NOT rewatch this movie EVER.

Overall 6/10: The main reason i disliked this movie was because of the way it was done. It felt like a documentary rushed into a film. It caused me to not really develop any feelings for the characters and overall not really care about the movie.

Where do I begin?
I started watching this drama because it was the holiday season and I desired a good romance comedy, and I followed a friends recommendation and started watching this. I can't say that I instantly fell in love with this drama, but I did like this drama from the beginning.

Story:
Overall, I enjoyed the story immensely. So why did I give it a 9 instead of a 10? It's because you know who ends up with who. It's not going to shock you in anyway if you've watched any korean romance comedies. Other than that though.

Cast/Acting:
Perfection. It couldn't have been better. The only thing that was somewhat "different" was Dok Go Jin's voice. His voice is "different". In the end it becomes the most soothing voice though.

Music:
The music did its job very well.

Rewatch Value:
I'm not much of a rewatcher, but I probably will not rewatch this like most other dramas and movies.

Overall:
Overall, I enjoyed this drama so so so much. It's a great drama that'll have you laughing and crying in no time. It's one of the best Romance Comedies out there. Oh and the ending was just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
So go and watch it! You'll enjoy it!

I came into this movie expecting a lot since a lot of people had recommended it to me. As a result, I was somewhat disappointed.



Story: 7/10 The story was slow in the beginning since it started based on her just wanting her ex boyfriend back, which was rather pathetic. Gradually throughout the movie that changes.



Acting/Casting: 7/10 The acting was great but the characters themselves didn't really make me want to emotionally connect with them.



Music: 7/10 It did it's job but not much else.



Rewatch Value: 4/10 I don't like rewatching movies, and this one wasn't even that great (imo) so it's something i wouldn't rewatch.





Overall: 7/10 This movie is ok for a boring sunday. It's not something very memorable in my opinion.

This is one of my favorite Jdramas.



Story: 8/10 The plot behind this drama is pretty ordinary. It's to make a loner girl at school, into one of the popular kids. That being said, I enjoyed every minute of it.



Acting: 10/10 The acting by Kamenashi Kazuya and Yamashita Tomohisa was outstanding. Erika Toda also did a great job. Overall, the entire cast was relatively flawless. One great thing about Yamaspi in this drama was the fact that he plays a very cute and quirky character unlike his other dramas.



Music: 7/10 The music for this jdrama was pretty average. It served it's purpose and I forgot it soon after I finished the drama.



Rewatch Value: 6/10 This is actually one of the better dramas to rewatch since you know what's going to happen from the very beginning.



Overall: 9/10 All in All, this drama is one of the more lighthearted, fun to watch Jdramas that everyone should watch. So what are you waiting for? Go! Go! Go!

I wish I could complain about this movie. Ok wait, i don't. This movie was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!



Story: 10/10 The story is one that will motivate you while tears stream down your eyes. It has themes of "High School" romance mixed in with following your dreams to the very end.



Cast/Acting 10/10 I couldn't ask for a better cast. They truly did a flawless job.



Music: 10/10 I still listen to the theme song by Yui (who also acted in this movie) two weeks after I watched the movie. The only "downside" about this movie is that you get addicted to the wonderful music by Yui.



Rewatch Value: 9/10 This is such a beautiful movie that I would definitely rewatch.



Overall 10/10 (i'd give it a 15/10 if I could!). Definitely watch this movie. You won't regret it.

This review may contain spoilers
I came into this movie as a fan of Takeshi Kaneshiro and this movie reaffirmed the fact that he stars in some pretty awesome movies.



Story: 10/10 To explain why I love this movie so much would require me to post some spoilers. But this movie truly has some of the greatest plot twists i've seen.



Acting/Cast: 10/10 The entire cast did a terrific job. I really couldn't ask for a better cast. Ken Watanabe also had an unexpectedly intriguing role.



Music: 8/10 The Music was rather average. It served it's function well but it didn't stand out enough for me to go download the OST later.



Rewatch Value: 5/10 Since one of the greatest things about this movie is its plot twists, I would choose NOT to rewatch this movie as I already remember everything that happened.



Overall: 10/10 This movie was absolutely brilliant and i'd recommend everyone to go watch it now.

First of all, I watched this movie when I was feeling a bit under the weather and it definitely picked me up.



Story: 8/10 The story is nothing extraordinary. You know what will happen from the very beginning but Jackie Chan and the rest of the crew urge you to go on.



Cast: 10/10 The cast did a GREAT job. Everyone from the cute baby to Jackie Chan were absolutely amazing. The only "downside" to the movie was the landlords wife and you'll know why if you watch the movie(like you should :D )



Music: 7/10 The music wasn't anything remarkable. It didn't stand out and in fact, i've forgotten what it sounded like already.



Rewatch Value: 7/10 I actually don't like rewatching movies in general, but this is one I could rewatch with friends since you don't watch it for the plot twists (as there are almost none)



Overall: 9/10 This movie was able to pick up my mood and cheer up when nothing else would. The cast did an absolutely flawless job as well. I got what I came for.

So this is a drama based off of the Manga and Anime by Gosho Aoyama. Previously there had been 3 Specials, the most recent of which stars the same cast as the ones in this drama. I haven't seen any of those, but as an avid fan of the anime, I was eager to watch this drama. And to date, it has yet to disappoint me. While yes the storyline isn't the same (the anime is based off of when Shinchi becomes a kid, while this one is just stories of Shinchi solving crimes). But nonetheless, the cases aren't bad, the acting is pretty awesome (especially Shinchi/Ran/Detective Mouri). The music is decent. Overall those, this is definitely one of the better anime to drama adaptations I have seen.

This drama really had been on the edge of my sit till the very end. It's one of those dramas where the producers throw you a twist in every episode, and for that reason I really liked it. The storyline was something I enjoyed pretty well, and the cast did a great job in making that happen. The music was great as i still listen to the songs sometimes. The rewatch value is pretty low since for dramas that are based off of twists and turns, once you already know what's going to happen, it loses the wow factor. Overall though, I'm giving this an 8, since this is really a top tier drama.

This movie was rather amazing and really had me emotionally invested. The story was interesting but didn't require much thought. The cast and their acting was flawless. The music was perfect as well. Normally, im not a person who likes rewatching movies, but I can definitely see myself rewatching this movie. Overall, I gave this movie a 10 just because it was a movie that really inspired me and made me look forward to the future.

I've never read the manga or watched the anime. The story was actually quite interesting and better than I had expected. Surprisingly though, I did NOT like the cast picked for this movie. I felt like Ninomiya and Kato were...how do I put this...They just didn't feel right. The music was okay and I personally wouldn't rewatch this, but it's generally not that bad of a film to rewatch. Overall, I gave this a 7 since it didn't really incite that much of a emotional response from me.

This is a movie where there are very little surprises or turn of events, so what makes this movie so good? You know what's going to happen from the very beginning but the way it's been done is so stunning, so heart wrenching, that you will have no choice but to love it. The story isn't the most original but it's been done well. The acting was perfect. The Music was perfectly suited for this movie. Usually i'm not one for rewatching movies, but this is an exception as there are no twists. Overall, this is definitely a 10 in my books. Watch it and see for yourself!
