    Deadpool 2

    ★★½

    messy and lazy writing. they obviously admit it anyway. seems so jumpy here and there.

    many new characters and few good potential development but ended up in chaos. Cable and Domino are very less dimentionally developed.

    I didn't say I didn't enjoy it. it was entertaining but not satisfying.

    ★★★★

    surprisingly impressive even thou it has mixed up and different plot than the original (novel). so let's say that both of them are incomparable because the film is BASICALLY a complete business development of the novel. it's franchise anyway, ryte? I labelled the novel and the film as two different stories from single universe.

    I saw the film as a whole new thing. it felt weird at the beginning when I realized that the original plot was being modified, but…

    1987: When the Day Comes

    ★★★★

    as a foreigner who didn't really know Korean history and political condition, I should say this is a well-made political-history brief of South Korea. with such good visualization and neat CGI, my country should envy.

    with many characters and some subplots, it may puzzling at first. but just like revealed truth of history, everything will make sense in the end.

    it is generally recommended. but if you are looking for dramatic docudrama with single main plot or protagonist, you'll not really enjoy it. it's more like political-conspiracy thingies film with a lotta historical characters to memorize.

  • The Seen and Unseen

    The Seen and Unseen

    ★★★★

    Balinese culture portrayed in a poetic and magical film with bold semiotic narration. mystical bond between twin brother-sister, narrated with the metaphors of egg. a mixed up between folktale and twisted dreamy reality. beautiful.
