My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was recommended to me by a passing stranger. And boy, I don’t regret reading it at all. It’s been on my bookshelves for years before I decided to pick it up and read and I got it for real cheap at a bookfair.

It’s an amazing ride from start to finish. The voice of the main character, Clay Jannon, resonates to me. He’s like every unemployed young person trying to find their place in the world but never lost that positivity and humour, which something I can relate to. Not the unemployed part, the finding their place in the world part, of course.

The book is full of adventure and mystery but humourous and inspiring as well. It’s a joy to read. I recommend it to anyone. You don’t have to be someone else. Sometimes, what you have and who you are is enough.

Movie Review: 더킹 (The King)

The_King_(2017_film)-poster

Second movie in a day. Wow, that must be a first for me. I was inspired by one of my fave idols, Do Kyungsoo (who is also an actor), watching 5 movies in one day. If he, with a hectic schedule of his, can watch 5 movies in a day, I should be able to. Right? Oh well, I’m trying.

The second movie that I watched is said to be one of the best movies to come out this year. So, I decided to give it a try. I don’t regret that decision at all.

Movie Review: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

Crouching_Tiger,_Hidden_Dragon_Sword_of_Destiny_poster

This week, there wasn’t any movie I was interested to watch (okay, actually there was one – a Korean movie called The Villainess, which sounds really badass from the synopsis, but the movie is shown at limited theatres and it’s slightly further from my house and I’m just too lazy okay!). So I decided to check out my Netflix account on my awesome smart TV to see if there’s anything remotely interesting to watch in there and I remembered I wanted to watch Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny. So here I am, two hours later, reviewing it.

Movie Review: Spiderman: Homecoming

_

I’m backkkkkkkk! And why does it feel like everytime I’m back, WordPress decides to change its blogging layout that makes me just feel… odd?

Anyway, what a good movie to come back to writing reviews to… Spiderman: Homecoming. Geddit? Anywho… I had doubts about this movie before it even started shooting because just how many adaptations of the famed webby superhero does anyone need? But after watching the movie, I take it back. I’m sorry, Tom Holland, for doubting you *insert sad-face emoji*

On to my review…

Movie Review: 카트 (Cart)

I have not been writing for quite a while, have I? No excuses there except I have Korean Language class every weekend and decide to spend some quality time with family on top of all the fangirling I was doing on the side. And my job.

Excuses aside, I decided to start writing reviews again. But since I am currently obsessed with Do Kyungsoo, who is also known as D.O. from a K-Pop group called EXO, I decided to watch his acting debut in this movie called 카트 (Cart) in 2014, which received raving reviews from critics both for the movie and the newbie’s acting.

But what do I think? It’s all under the cut.

Movie Review: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

resident_evil_the_final_chapter_ver7_xlg

Let me first be honest: I’ve never watched Resident Evil before. I’ve heard of it, thought nothing of it and never watched it. I’ve never been a big fan of this kind of movies. I’ve heard of the game and I’m pretty sure I’ve watched some Let’s Play videos of it on YouTube but I guess I never really was interested in the franchise.

But why did I still watch it? Because of a Korean actor named Lee Joon-Ki who played his first Hollywood role in the movie. The things I do for my oppas. Tee-hee!

Movie Review: 마스터 (Master)

fullsizephoto777341

When I was looking through the list of movies coming out this week in Singapore late last year, I was disappointed on how horrible the movies were. I mean, there’s the “94% Rotten Tomatoes”-rated Arrival but I have had enough of aliens invading earth and the impending doom that the idea of stepping into the cinema this week seems depressing.

Then, came the saviour – 마스터 (Master), a Korean movie starring Kang Dong-Won, Lee Byung-Hun and Kim Woo-bin. The casting sounds impressive already so I decided to give this a shot. And boy, I didn’t regret it at all.
