Rating Title/Year Author
Pandora (2016) Park Jin-hai Pandora is not an easy movie to watch. It lends a painful patina of the real-world Sewol tragedy that claimed the lives of over 300 people in 2014. EDIT
Posted Dec 7, 2016
The Age of Shadows (2016) Park Jin-hai What saves the film is the great acting of the two protagonists Song and Gong Yoo. EDIT

The Last Princess (2016) Yun Suh-young The Last Princess is a tear jerker, not in a far-fetched way, but in a way so subtle that you don't realize you're crying until you feel it trickle down your cheeks. EDIT
Posted Aug 4, 2016
Operation Chromite (2016) Park Jin-hai A half-baked war flick. EDIT
Posted Jul 27, 2016

Posted May 27, 2016
Phantom Detective (2016) Yun Suh-young At times the film is belly-laughingly funny and at other times chair-grippingly intense. EDIT
Posted May 26, 2016
The Handmaiden (2016) Jason Bechervaise The whole cast delivers mesmerizing performances. Kim Min-hee is on the best form of her career following her role in Hong Sang-soo's Right Now, Wrong Then. EDIT
Posted May 26, 2016
Thirst (2009) Lee Hyo-won Thirst, like other great movies, makes you forget you're watching one, and you won't be able to stop it from shaking up every cell in your body unless you dart for the exit. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2009
3/5 Stray Dog (1949) Fred Hong Joo Jung Hardly the best Mifune/Kurosawa film, but still a Mifune/Kurosawa film. EDIT

Posted Apr 21, 2004

Posted Dec 27, 2003

Posted Sep 19, 2003
4/5 () Fred Hong Joo Jung Was good, but not as good as the following season. Still remains the best television in recent memory. EDIT
Posted Sep 10, 2003

Posted Aug 26, 2003
3/5 In the Line of Fire (1993) Fred Hong Joo Jung Malkovich, were it not for Tommy Lee Jones chasing Indiana Jones through the streets and gutters of Chicago, would surely have taken home a golden statue. EDIT
Posted Aug 26, 2003
1/5 Once a Thief (1991) Fred Hong Joo Jung Sort of Woo, doesn't make for good Woo. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2003
3/5 Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) Fred Hong Joo Jung It is surprising anyone went to school in the Eighties after watching this beauty. EDIT
Posted Aug 21, 2003
2/5 Bullet in the Head (1990) Fred Hong Joo Jung Not great, but it is John Woo and that gets style points. EDIT
Posted Aug 4, 2003

Posted May 17, 2003
3/5 The Bad Sleep Well (1960) Fred Hong Joo Jung The Kurosawa and Mifune must not sleep a wink since they are about as good as it gets. EDIT
Posted May 14, 2003
3/5 Boiling Point (1990) Fred Hong Joo Jung It is Takeshi. And although he may not sing in it (in Japan, Takeshi is a singing sensation), he does direct and kicks some rear Takeshi style. EDIT
Posted May 13, 2003
2/5 License to Drive (1988) Fred Hong Joo Jung Amazingly, the one good Corey/Corey film aside from The Lost Boys. EDIT
Posted May 1, 2003
0/5 Body Shots (1999) Fred Hong Joo Jung I am still foggy as to whether this "movie" was about the drink because I needed quite the shots to get through this dribble. EDIT
Posted Apr 18, 2003
3/5 Curly Sue (1991) Fred Hong Joo Jung If you don't fall in love with Sue, get yourself to the emergency room. You are without a heart. EDIT
Posted Apr 5, 2003
0/5 Licence to Kill (1989) Fred Hong Joo Jung Timothy Dalton was the worst Bond ever and this had me crying for Roger Moore. EDIT
Posted Mar 31, 2003
0/5 Mortal Kombat (1995) Fred Hong Joo Jung This had to have sounded like a good idea. After all, the game was a best seller. Pity, it falls on its face. EDIT
Posted Mar 31, 2003
2/5 Peace Hotel (1995) Fred Hong Joo Jung It is Chow, but it is so so, which is a no no. EDIT
Posted Mar 5, 2003
3/5 True Colors (1991) Fred Hong Joo Jung Some of John Cusack's best work and certainly, some of James Spader's finest screen time as well. EDIT
Posted Mar 3, 2003
0/5 Showgirls (1995) Fred Hong Joo Jung This movie shows nothing more than just how bad an actress the Saved By the Bell chick is. EDIT
Posted Feb 11, 2003

Posted Feb 10, 2003
3/5 () Fred Hong Joo Jung The first season was good, but it got better. EDIT
Posted Feb 10, 2003
4/5 Miller's Crossing (1990) Fred Hong Joo Jung The best Coen film. It is superb in every sense of the word. A mob movie that rappers don't show off on an episode of Cribs. EDIT
Posted Feb 10, 2003
3/5 One Fine Day (1996) Fred Hong Joo Jung Just cute enough to get a pass. EDIT
Posted Feb 10, 2003
