Heartstrings

So, I don’t know if I really have a lot to say about this drama. It was a fairly common story line, at least in Korean genres, but it was still a nice little story. The musical aspect of it was a nice touch, but it’s hard to watch this sort of thing when I’ve… Continue reading Heartstrings

Robin Hood: Men in Tights

This film is another satirical/spoof comedy by Mel Brooks with one of my favorite actors: Cary Elwes (Princess Bride, Liar Liar). I’m usually not big on just comedy movies, but with Mel Brooks’ films it’s different. For one, I grew up with them. They are like old friends. But also there is the fact that… Continue reading Robin Hood: Men in Tights

Jungle Book (1994)

This live-action rendition of the book is a marvel. It has wonderful characters and a story that can be enjoyed by both children and adults. Anyone who has seen the animated Disney story will see all the small nods towards it in this film, but it stays its own story. The CGI and green screens… Continue reading Jungle Book (1994)

Mockingjay Part Two

So, this film is very turbulent. The war has gotten serious and the lines on both sides have been crossed. I think this film was still a great ending to the saga, not only because they stayed true to the book, but because they did a great job on balancing everything. I know that the… Continue reading Mockingjay Part Two

Mockingjay Part One

I already know that a lot of people did not like part one at all. It was too boring and too slow… so many things like that. I have to whole-heartedly disagree though. If you’re looking for a series that’s all about the action and main stream entertainment then you are looking at the wrong… Continue reading Mockingjay Part One

Catching Fire

Catching Fire is by far my favorite out of the quartet of movies; it’s the only time when the girly part of me goes ga-ga over the relationship between Katniss and Peeta. As a fan of the books I really like how the director was able to recreate the story in such an exciting and… Continue reading Catching Fire

The Hunger Games

So, this film is one of my favorite fantasy films and I think most people would agree with me. Yes, it’s main stream, but at the same time the story is daring and harsh. I absolutely love Jennifer Lawrence in this and I think it was really well directed and produced. It’s also one of… Continue reading The Hunger Games

Spaceballs

You can’t get much better than the satirical genius of Mel Brooks. Despite the obvious comedy and goofiness the film holds a level of cinema that’s seen only in a classic film. For those who aren’t familiar with Brooks he’s a forefront leader in comedic satires; the reason is that he doesn’t abandon the things… Continue reading Spaceballs

The Walking Dead

This post-apocalyptic show is one of my favorite. The dynamic of this show is phenomenal and it would have never been a success had it not been for the great characters and their in depth story-lines. This show may be too violent for some, but it isn’t without a reason. One of the most potent… Continue reading The Walking Dead

Reign of Fire

  So, this movie is one of my favorite post-apocalyptic films. It’s very well-done with a direct and easily understandable plot. It has top notch actors such as Matthew McConaughey, Christian Bale and Gerard Butler. While it may be true that popular actors don’t always make a movie, this film would have been lost without… Continue reading Reign of Fire
