"Queen of the Night" is a romantic love story about a man named Yeong-soo (Cheon Jeong-myeong) who is super timid but meets the perfect wife named Hee-joo (Kim Min-jeong) and he investigates her past,...More
  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "R2B: Return to Base": Come Rain, Come Shine?

    Film: "R2B: Return to Base" (R2B: 리턴투베이스)   Director: Kim Dong-weon Stars: Rain, Sin Se-kyeong, Yoo Joon-sang, Kim Sung-soo, Lee Ha-na & Lee Jong-suk Review Score: 3 / 5 Also Try: "The Red Scarf", "71-Into the Fire" or "Taegukgi" Shin Sang-ok's 1964 film "The Red Muffler" was the first film to be released nationally in Japan and, prior to its release there, it was also shown at the Asia-Pacific Film Festival in Taipei. It was this acclaimed classic, this "expertly-filmed motion picture", that inspired Kim Dong-weon's 2012 action drama "R2B: Return to Base". The film was made with $10,000,000 and Time magazine's 2011 'most influential person' and Korean superstar Rain. However, it also had the unfortunate luck of being released alongside Choi Dong-hoon's record breaking "The Thieves", as well as the historical comedy "The Grand Heist" (which itself brought in close to 5 million admissions)-it lasted three weeks before it fell off the radar. "R2B: Return to Base" is, if anything, a great spectacle. There are incredibly gorgeous jet fighter scenes that seem to mirror the complexity and intensity of the stories told by some of the WWII veterans on the History channel; its star, Rain, is involved in a number of retro-style music montages as well as an angry/passionate topless locker-room brawl; and there is a love story in there somewhere that keeps you from feeling cheated. It's high-speed entertainment that catches the eye and quickens the pulse, but does little for the genre in Korea and even less for Rain's filmography,...More

  • CJ Entertainment America to release Korean Movie on DVDs and Blu-rays in the USA

    If the last time you checked, Korean filmmaking was all about horror ... It may be time to check again! While pan-Asian filmmakers still know how to produce a superior scarefest (and do!), American movie-goers – and critics – are also taking note of the regions' dramas, romantic fare, comedies and music. G&A is now working with CJ Entertainment America, the U.S. arm of Asia's premier entertainment company and Korea's #1 filmmaker and distributor, CJ Entertainment & Media (CJ E&M). Since 1995, CJ E&M has provided original, award-winning content; is a prominent investor in entertainment co-ventures with such U.S. companies as 1492 Pictures, DreamWorks and IMAX; and has been a key force in popularizing Korean and Pan-Asian cinema around the world,...More
