If you are a fan of “My Sassy Girl”, a Korean movie, you probably will love this movie. Although I never watch My Sassy Girl, I just find out that these two movies have the same director.
She look like Pucca (funny chinese cartoon character)
My Mighty Princess is a romantic/action/comedy. The story line is subtle enough to keep you interested. I love the special effects. I’m very impressive that actors and actresses are flying in the air without any stunts (for th most part). It becomes one of my favorite Korean movie ever!
This movie is about a girl, SohWi, who is inherit all the special martial art skills from her dad and mom. She’s inevitable! However, she wants to be just a normal girl. Can she pretend like she has no power? You have to watch!! SohWi (pronouce “So – Wee”…. what a cute name!
here is the trailer:
I had watched Elizabeth movie 10 years ago (1998). I fell in love with the movie back then, but I did not expect to feel the same way with its sequel, Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007). So, I didn’t make an attempt to see it in the movie theater until this weekend.
I started to watch the movie at the middle. At first, I thought to myself that I would watch it only a couple minute. But, then I realized that the movie was too good to change the channel … hahaha. I watched it through the end. Plus, I waited for the re-run on the Pacific time zone, so I could catch the beginning part.
This sequel is as good as the prequel!! It focuses on the part that Spanish tried to invade England. Cate Blanchett is so beautiful and perfect for the role. She didn’t look older from the prequel in 1998 at all…. unbelievable!
For those who like watch based-on historic movies, you cannot miss this movie. You don’t need to watch its prequel, but very recommended.
Wow…. this is the second week on the first spot for the movie Beverly Hills Chihuahuas. They have made about 52 million dollars for 10 days.
This movie is produced by Walt Disney and all about chihuahuas! I haven’t seen this movie yet, bu I might go to see it tomorrow night. Can I bring Enzo too? hahaha I better not… because he would bark for the entire movie. Every time the commercial of this movie was on the TV, he would jump up and down and bark so loud. I’m not sure if he liked them or hate them. Enzo should be proud for them, right?
Alice in wonderland is a classic. Everybody must read the book or see the move. There are so many versions, but in 2010 we will see Tim Burton’s version. For those who don’t know Tim Burton’s work, think “DARK”! HAHAHA… He have very strong visual when it comes to his movie style.
His examples of well-known works include:
- Edward Scissorhands
- The Nightmare Before Christmas
- Sleepy Hollow
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
- Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
So, his dark, scary, mysterious work will give Alice in wonderland an interesting twist because we all know that Alice in wonderland is about kid’s adventures (just like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I found this movie a bit scary… LOL). Of course, Johnny Depp will be in this movie too.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
He’s just started the production and announced that Ann Hathaway will join the cast as White queen.
The crews are:
- Mia Wasikowska as Alice
- Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter
- Helena Bonham Carter as the Queen of Hearts
- Anne Hathaway as the White Queen
- Matt Lucas as Tweedledum and Tweedledee
- Eleanor Tomlinson as Fiona Chataway, an unfriendly girl Alice knows before she falls down the rabbit hole.
Can’t wait to see it!
Wow… I’ve just finished watching Korean series, “Get Karl! Oh Soo Jung.” I’m completely in love with the story. The storyline is pretty good and very entertaining.
The story starts when Go Man Soo is huge, nerdy, ugly, and chubby. He has been in love with the most popular girl, Oh Soo Jung, since middle school. Go Man Soo would do ANYTHING to have a date with Oh Soo Jung. Oh Soo Jung is like a gold digger. She’s very picky and will pick only the best for herself. She told Go Man Soo that if he passed the exam and became a lawyer, then she would date and got married with him. He had studied so hard to pass the exam, but the exam had three levels. The real beginning of this Korean series is here! Go Man Soo fail the last level of the exam which is the interview exam. He fail the exam right before the day he’s going to get married with Oh Soo Jung. The night before they are going to get married, many men came to beg her not to get married with Go Ma Soo. She resisted. She already made up her mind that Go Mn Soo was the one.
So… just right before she is going to walk into the wedding ceremony, Go Man Soo decided to be honest with her and told her that he had fail the exam. Oh Soo Jung was in shock and couldn’t accept the fact that after they were married, he might NOT be able to make money as much as she has hoped. …. SHE RAN AWAY with her wedding gown!!
It’s getting interesting… Go Man Soo was very disappointed and hurt so bad. He decided to go to the US and started his new life. 8 years later, it’s time for Go Man Soo to come back and finish his revenge on Oh Soo Jung. Now, he’s world known golfer, Go Karl (his new name) who comes back to Korea for the tournament. Oh Soo Jung is a desperate 34-year-old single who is trying to catch a wealthy husband. When she learns that Go Karl is Go Man Soo, she wants him back because now he’s worth 5 Million!
From here, the story continues to get better… you have to watch the rest. I love it!
This weekend I had a chance to go to see Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Once again a very good performance by Ron Perlman as Hellboy. Selma Blair’s never been this beautiful! The story was good and had all the excitement like the first part. I was really enjoy watching it.
I couldn’t help but noticing that the movie thearther was not packed like the other big movies’ opening weekend. It was OK, but I thought it would be more people who were interested in this movie. So, this morning I went to Yahoo Movie and check the top box office. Although Hellboy is number one, it made only about 36M. Handock in the second week made 33M. I guess… Hellboy II were not doing so good in the past weekend. Basing on all the positive reviews, people might go to see this movie weeks after the opening.. maybe?? Hellboy is one of the big sumer movie and you cannot just miss it if you love seeing action movies with a lot of special FX.
I’ve just finished watching the Vineyard Man, 2006 Korean Drama series, on the weekend. At first, I felt that the story moved so slow. I would have felt asleep. But, it’s getting better when Ji Hyun had to go to work for her grand uncle’s vineyard in a small town. The scenary was beatiful!! I was much enjoyable to watch Ji Hyun (Yoon Eun Hye from the Princess Hour and Coffee Prince) worked with Jang Taek Gi (I never see him before).
City girl in a country town!! OMG.. she had to work so hard because her grand uncle told her if she worked for him for one year, he would gave her the 10,000 acre vineyard (worth about 20 million dollars). She’s very talented in designing and sewing clothes, but she had to come to work as a farmer. She asked Taek Gi to teach her everything and help her to become a queen of grape.
This is a romantic-comedy. Both actor and actress pulled it off and make it believable. This is another successful work from Yoon Eun Hye!! Love it! You can’t miss this Korean series!!! Yoon Eun Hye is so cute even though she looks so tan. Watch the MV from YouTube below.
I’ve just finished watching a Korean drama series, Witch Yoo Hee or Witch Amusement. The series have total of 16 episodes. The title might mislead you. This series has nothing to with any magic or witches. Because of the main actress’s bitchy mood, icy heart, and demanding aggression, people would call her a witch.
Ma Yoo Hee, the witch, is always about pefection and success, but she is likely fail to have a real relationship with a man. She has tried to go out as a blind date so many times, but most guys deny to ask her out on the second date. Until she meet a Moo Ryong (not sure I write his name corrrectly ), things have started to change. Moo Ryong is a very romantic, creative, hard-working, sincere, and gentleman type of guy. He loves cooking especially French food. However, he get fired from every restaurant where he works. He is an out-spoken when it came to food critics. That’s why chefs and people in the kitchen are hate him. Plus, he is too talented and well-trained since he was young. His abilities and cooking skills are far beyond those chefs whom he works with. He dreams to get trained by or to work with Johny Koger, a celebrity chef from New York. One day his dream comes true. He has an opportunity to work with Johny and starts to learn french cooking enthuastically.
I love this series because it was fun to watch Yoo Hee’s progression to become more lady-like and romantic kind of person. Aslo, I had fun to watch Moo Ryong being a coach to teach Yoo Hee how to show affection to a man and people around her, how to cook, how to act on a date, and how to be stylish with the new sense of fashion. I love her transformation!
Not only that, each main character has his and her mystrious background that will keep you puzzle and curious. Later, the story tied things together. Yoo Hee got caught amongst three men: Moo Ryong, longtime friend Johnny, and first love Joon Ha. Which one of these suitors will melt Yoo Hee’s icy heart? You need to find out!
Now this Korean drama has been on air in Thailand after successfully airing the Coffee Prince, which I love this Koren drama series too.
Below are couple soundtracks which I like from the Witch Yoo Hee series. Please let me knwo if you would liek to put some more soundtracks.
Both songs below are the soundtracks from the famous Thai drama, Sawan Biang. I love both songs!
