(ru) wrote: I do not usually write film reviews so this might not be done very well..but I loved this movie so much that I feel compelled to do so.What I like about this movie is that it doesn't make the enemy troops into monsters. The viewer watches the movie from the perspective of the south korean soldiers, but knows that both sides are human and they are just fighting a war that needs to be fought. the dialogue in this movie is memorable as well. there are many lines that hit home for me.You grow to know and love the characters in a very deep way. I myself became attached to most of them...even those with very few lines. This movie impacted me so hard that every time I watch it (now 6 times) I am left pondering it for days. It really leaves its mark.Plus, the cinematography of this movie is absolutely stunning. If you are a fan of movies that are ART-this is a movie to watch.The explosions are not over the top and you are left feeling like you experienced the war for yourself.I am not a war movie fan at all-this is my favorite movie.And as for the lead being played by Big Bang's TOP? Yeah-that was the main reason I watched it-but his acting was so extraoridnary that I forgot he was even in it half way through. It was just Oh Jang Beom....in war...and I was there with him.Please-do yourself a favor and watch this movie. You will be touched.
(it) wrote: I have seen this stuff before, recently even. It's not very funny or original. It felt fake and over-childish. A film filled with upperclass and success - not a very good message to kids. Got it's few moments that can save it a tiny bit. A mediocre child film - a poor film for adults.

(gb) wrote: What I think I like best about this film is that it really wasn't a sports film. It wasn't really about a team coming together to win a championship, it wasn't about overcoming differences to win the game. In fact, it wasn't even about winning.It was about determination. It was about never giving up. It was about inspiring others to believe in your dream until all the naysayers finally gave in and cheered your name as you got on the field and made one play. Not a play to win. Not a play that turned the tide. Just a single play after years of struggle to attain a dream.

(ru) wrote: Thor : The Dark World. This film is the next installment in the Marvel Avengers universe and how does it add to the franchise. Not bad not bad at all, but also not a great addition to the franchise. There are some things that I really liked about this film and there are some things that I did not like at all. First lets talk about the pros of this film and some of the performances that I actually liked. I really liked the much darker tone that this film took when comparing it to the avengers and the first thor film. The films dark tone combined with some awesome special effects make for a great visual film. Chris Hemsworth is good as Thor once again but Tom Hiddleston as Loki is arguably much superior in this film. As for the cons, well, this film has a dark tone but has so much bland and forced humor that is not funny. Literally every other scene is just an isolated scene featuring a cheesy one liner or a unnecessary situational humor situation that is just so forced and bad. It happens all throughout this film. Kat Dennings is in this film and is even more annoying in this film than in the first one, I hate her character, she has no purpose in this film at all and her assistant/love interest also serves no purpose to this film in anyway. My last complaint with this film is the villain is just not menacing at all, he just feels like he is there because there has to be an antagonist or else thor wouldnt have anybody to swing his hammer at. In the end Thor : The Dark World is a solid addition to this franchise but does nothing to make the franchise better either and will not convert any newcomers to fans, but if your a fan of the avengers universe then this film is for you.
