Flash Review: Miracle In Cell No. 7 [Movie]

This is one of those movies that I’ve only ever heard good things about, and have always wanted to watch.

The reason it’s taken me this long to actually get to it, is that I just.. got distracted by other things and forgot to look for it, until I chanced on it the other day, while browsing movie titles.

The moment I saw this one, it jumped to the top of my watch list immediately.

And now that I’ve seen it, I must say, it really is as excellent as everyone says it is.

Flash Review: Train To Busan [Movie]

I finally did it, you guys. I finally watched Train To Busan, after having skirted it for years.

I’ve been hearing great things about it, even from non-zombie flick fans, but had been reluctant to check it out, because I’ve always been a self-declared horror wuss. And a train full of zombies just felt like a bit much, to me. 😅

But today, I’ve finally decided to give it a try, since I’ve managed to enjoy some horror-themed shows like Happiness (zombies!) and Sweet Home (blood and monsters!), and whaddya know – this one’s not that hard to enjoy, after all!

I.. guess I’m less of a horror wuss than I’d thought, heh. 😁

Flash Review: Shark: The Beginning [Movie]

I do have a soft spot for underdog stories, but to be completely honest with you, the main reason I was interested to check out this movie, is because Wi Ha Joon plays an MMA champion in this.

A chance to see Wi Ha Joon being a skilled badass? YES PLEASE! 🤩

Ok, but as a bonus, this movie works out to be a solid underdog story, so it does have more merit, than simply having Wi Ha Joon play an MMA champ. 😁

Flash Review: Homme Fatale [Movie]

As many of you know, because of my deep affection for Junho, I’ve been on a mission to check out his various projects.

I’d been meaning to watch this movie and write it a review (this was my third attempt – more on that in a bit), so what better time to do that, than the weekend that Junho wins Best Actor, at the Baeksang Awards?? Ahhh!!! 🤩

For the record, I’m so, SO happy for him, and so proud of him, and having him on my screen for an hour and 50 minutes this weekend, felt like a perfect way to celebrate his (well-deserved) win. 😍

Flash Review: Okay! Madam [Movie]

To be honest, this movie wasn’t even on my radar, even though it’s already been out for more than a year.

When I saw the cast list on this, though – Park Sung Woong! Uhm Jung Hwa! Lee Sang Yoon! 🤩 – I knew I wanted to check it out, even though plane hijackings aren’t my usual kind of thing.

And whaddya know, this one turned out to be a pretty fun ride – with the right lens, which I’ll talk about in just a bit.

Flash Review: The Swordsman [Movie]

If you’ve been around the blog for a while, you’d know that I get reflexive stars in my eyes, whenever Jang Hyuk gets to put his Fantastic Fight Skillz on display.

Which is why I knew I definitely wanted to check out this movie, once I discovered that it had become available.

All in all, it’s a pretty enjoyable watch – with some lens adjustments, which I’ll talk about shortly.

Flash Review: Upcoming Summer [China] [Movie]

Shout-out to manukajoe, who was the one who put this movie on my radar.

He said that this one was breezy and enjoyable, and now that I’ve watched it for myself, I do concur that it’s a solid spend of an hour and 55 minutes of your drama hours.

Plus, Leo Wu is so very endearing in this. 🤩

Flash Review: Seobok [Movie]

Huge shout-out to Beez, who was the one who let us know, over on Patreon, that Viki would start carrying Seobok, from 1 Feb! Thanks, Beez! 😘

I have a great deal of fondness for both Gong Yoo and Park Bo Gum, which is why this movie’s been on my radar, ever since it was announced. Now that I’ve finally had the chance to see it, I’ll say that while this movie didn’t ultimately rock my world, I am glad to have checked it out.

Flash Review: Namiya [Miracles of the Namiya General Store] [China] [Movie]

Happy Lunar New Year, everyone! 🧨 If you’re looking for a holiday movie for the festive season, this one just might fit the bill.

It’s a heartwarming Hallmark-esque sort of story, with a fantasy twist. Not your typical holiday movie, in that sense, but with enough of the cozy, poignant, warming feels that you’d tend to want, from a holiday movie, to make it a contender for your holiday screen time.

Flash Review: Adoring [China] [Movie]

If you’re looking for a holiday movie to watch this New Year’s weekend, Adoring might be a good contender. It came out on 31 December 2019, just in time for New Year’s – so we’re only about a year late? 😁

Show is simple, easy, and it focuses on bringing the feels. And! There’re pets!! What’s not to love, right? 🤩
