  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "The Huntresses": A Dynastic Disaster

    2014/06/21,
    In the spotlight this week: Park Je-hyeon's "The Huntresses"... There was a great deal of hype and hope at the start of the year around the string of Joseon-inspired films that were on their way. The first of which was Park Je-hyeon's "The Huntresses", a Charlie's Angels-infused action adventure starring Ha Ji-won, Kang Ye-won, Son Ga-in, and Ko Chang-seok. "The Huntresses" appeared to have a delectable mixture of talent, genre and energy, but the film tragically tanked. It was strategically released over the Lunar New Year holiday but, instead of Park's bombastic offering, it was Hwang Dong-hyeok's "Miss Granny" that Korean cinephiles flocked to (a comedy drama that went onto attract over 8.6M filmgoers and is still the highest grossing Korean film of the year). And after two disappointing weeks the film crashed out of the top ten with just 473K admissions to its name,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "My Father"

    2014/05/30,
    James Parker (played by Daniel Henney) is in a similar position to many other internationally adopted Koreans. He wants to find out what happened to his birth parents. From the beginning "My Father" does a good job establishing the ambiguity of this goal. The first thing his adoptive family does is worry, and his sister, also adopted from Korea, points out that James may not like what he finds. A father on death row? Yeah, that's trouble. "My Father" is in the strange place of seeming too preposterous and melodramatic to be plausible, yet as the credits sequence clearly illustrates, the basic outline of events here was in fact based on a true story,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2014.03.28 ~ 2014.03.30

    2014/03/31,
    "Captain America" strikes, "Noah" sinks... Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" sunk to second as Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" rallied 1.1M admissions to its cause. The American superhero opened to a massive 1,106 screens to capture 61% of the market and dislodge the biblical epic from pole position. Last weekend "Noah" opened its account with 950K, but was unable to see out the storm and managed just 326,746 (16.6%) stubs here in week two. Only three local films featured in the top ten ("Elegant Lies", "Miss Granny", and "Monster - Movie") as Korea's volatile box office continued its fickle favouring of new entries,...More
