  • [Guest Film Review] "My Dear Desperado"

    Despite being relatively unknown, "My Dear Desperado" was a very successful film, and had a large impact on India, where two remakes were shot, one in Hindi and one in Tamil. Se-jin is a country girl who leaves her small hometown to come to Seoul. Initially, everything seems to be going well for her, as she lands an IT job and finds a boyfriend, who works as a programmer. Her days of joy, though, do not last for long, and eventually, her company goes bankrupt and her boyfriend finds a new job and leaves her,...More
  • [HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2014.03.07 ~ 2014.03.09

    "300" rises as "Non-Stop" takes a knee... It's been hard going for local flicks the past month. "Frozen", "Pompeii", and "Non-Stop" have all occupied the top spot but have been unable to hold onto that position. Now a new contender has come forth in the form of Noam Murro's "300: Rise of an Empire", an epic action fantasy sequel to the 2006 film "300". The film, which is based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller that is still to be released, claimed 661,909 (40.6%) over 720 screens to stand as the country's new number one. It was an epic start to its campaign as it dislodged "Non-Stop" at the top of the pile to take gold,...More

    Ice gives way to fire as "Pompeii" overthrows "Frozen" at the top… Disney's Oscar contender "Frozen" was finally dislodged at the top of pile in a hotly contested tussle at the top. This past weekend saw Paul W. S. Anderson's disaster epic "Pompeii" entered in first position (542,060-21.3%), a film that has been struggling globally after poor reviews stunted its hopes of reaching the $100M it took to produce. Despite its unimpressive stats thus far, Anderson's indulgent 3D flick only narrowly outplayed Kim Kwang-sik-I's newly released "Tabloid Truth" (440,829-20%). "Tabloid Truth" is already looking good to overtake Kim's pervious effort with "My Dear Desperado", a romantic comedy that claimed nearly 700K stubs back in 2010,...More
