[HanCinema's Film Review] "Antigone"

2017/08/12 | | Permalink

The trappings of Mythological Greece are traded for those of Baekje from the Three Kingdoms Period of Korea in "Antigone", which adapts the classic Greek play to a Korean environment while still keeping all of the essential themes intact. The main change is just that Baekje is more obviously doomed than Thebes. The Baekje royal family has fallen, and the survivors are stuck on a boat. Extra historical context in the opening titles doesn't make that picture any rosier...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "MUSUDAN"

2017/08/12 | | Permalink

A bunch of people keep dying in the Demilitarized Zone, so Captain Jin-ho (played by Kim Min-joon) puts together a crack team of South Korean special forces to figure out what the problem is. As for the members of his crack team, well, uh, Lieutenant Yoo-hwa (played by Lee Ji-ah) is a woman. We know that because she does womanly things like putting on makeup. As for the rest of those guys, I think Staff Sergent Yoon-gil (played by Park Yoo-hwan) ends up dying on base like a chump. That's as good as I can do for names...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Chasing"

2017/08/12 | | Permalink

Jeong-taek (played by Kim Jung-tae) is a disheveled cop who doesn't project authority. He's trying to collar corporate criminal Seung-joo (played by Kim Seung-woo), who is much cooler and much more obviously competent. Eventually they both get thrown through the ringer as Won-tae (played by Hyuk) and his gang of teenage hoodlums make fools of them both, prompting an epic chase throughout Seoul...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Man-hole" Episode 2

2017/08/11 | | Permalink

The nervous energy that pervaded the first episode of "Man-Hole" was dialed back in the second. Although Pil ran around like a chicken with his head cut off in this episode's past, it is Soo-jin that we take a look at and her teenaged feelings for our spastic hero...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Someone Noticeable" Episodes 8-10

2017/08/11 | | Permalink

Considering how the very first scenes of "Someone Noticeable" started us out with a shockingly sad and irreversible twist of fate, I can't much resent the drama on following through with that. As nice as it would be to believe that a single screenwriting breakthrough is all it takes to get closure...that's just not how it works. The way An clings to Jin-yeong's phone is symbolic of her unwillingness to let go of him in general. That, more than their separation, is the real conflict...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Man-hole" Episode 1

2017/08/10 | | Permalink

The first episode of the time travel romcom "Man-Hole" came and went in a blur. Directors Park Man-yeong and Yoo Yeong-eun-I writer Lee Jae-gon deliver a fast-paced, frenetic opener that rushes by a little quickly to stick...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Criminal Minds" Episode 6

2017/08/10 | | Permalink

In contrast to the weird and random gimmicks that have characterized "Criminal Minds" so far, the big case this episode is structured more-or-less the same way the original American program is. The team discovers an active serial killer, and pieces together the clues to try and find the serial killer, emphasis on the criminal profile. A lot of discussion is made about mothers, since the crime in question seems specifically designed to horrify mothers...More
