    Castaway on the Moon

    ★★★★★

    "It's not for health reasons.
    After putting on 10.000 steps,
    I feel like I had a good, busy day.
    It's an all-too-healthy way of escapism."

    So writer/director Lee Hae-Jun knows what made me buy that rowing machine last year - splendid..
    Starring Jeong JaeYeong as the male Kim and Jung Ryeo-Won as the female Kim, Castaway on the Moon opens with male Kim trying to commit suicide via jumping from the infamous Mapo Bridge in Seoul to his death in…

    River's Edge

    ★★★½

    Classic Japanese No Future Generation drama with Fumi Nikado as lead. The secret MVP is Sumire, the daughter of Chara and Tadanobu Asano, though.

I do appreciate that.

    Obviously I love it though, so..

It's action movie perfection brought to life by the amazing team of writer/director/editor Gareth Evans, indonesian silat master Iko Uwais, cinematographers Matt Flannery and Dimas Imam Subhono and choreographer/antagonist/silat master Yayan Ruhian aided by a great crew.

    When an elite police squad gets trapped in a run-down apartment block controlled by a drug lord shit…

  • I Saw the Devil

    I Saw the Devil

    ★★★★★

    A piano sonata of revenge that, with each note, breaks a bone, peels back your skin, slits a tendon and punches and kicks your heart and gut and stops exactly a split second before it would knock you unconscious, only to build up again and leave you more devastated the next time around.

    I Saw The Devil is a gorgeously crafted piece of cinema directed by Kim Jee-woon. The tale of a special ops agent played by Lee Byung-hun on…
