I Saw the Devil (2010)

FINALLY got around to watching this movie and... Wow.

To say that I was impressed - To say that my jaw dropped a few times - To say that that held some of the some of the best performances that I've ever seen... All understatements.

As it's been mentioned, part of what makes this movie so incredibly powerful are the intense and gripping performances by Min-sik Choi (absolutely chilling) and Byung-hun Lee (agonizingly biting) - I was particularly impressed with the latter, who shines as the haunted victim, resolute on revenge. His fierce and unblinking demeanor was horrifying as he descends into tragic anti-hero-dom.

In terms of direction, each scene was filmed with deliberate ease. The writing and the story and the ending - oh God the superlative ending - All well done. This tale unravels slowly, with delightfully shocking peaks and climaxes until the pinnacle scene of perfect vengeance... My jaw did truly drop a few times... Great suspense and action interlaced with poetic tragic drama - Definitely an epic Korean Revenge flick, up there with The Vengeance Trilogy, though less playful.

Fantastic film - HIGHLY recommended.

5/5.

Godzilla Vs. The Sea Monster

After a hard day, sitting down with a beer and watching a Godzilla movie is exactly what i needed. No matter how stupid and silly these movies can be at times i love them. They are why i love giant monster movies.

Paranormal Activity 2: Tokyo Nights (2010)

While the American PA2 was a parallel prequel story of the original but this one is a sequel where the events happens around with a Japanese brother & sister. Haruka (the sister) has returned to Tokyo after getting involved in a severe car accident in San Diego, California where she was studying. She broke both of her legs in the car crash and is now recuperating at her younger brother Koichi's house in Tokyo. Now that accidents actually connect it with the original PA as news report says that Haruka hit Katie with her car in that accident as Katie was running away after "killing" her boyfriend, Micah. Haruka guessed that the supposed demon that possessed Katie has now latched on to her (& fly over to Tokyo with her without having a visa or even a plane ticket!:D).

There are some solid creepy encounters here also, especially there's a nice scene when the Haruka was pulled by her hair and dragged from the bed, somewhat like dragging Katie's ankle from the bed in the original. But the ending is here overdone, they tried to show too much, IMO. Especially I don't get who's corpse was it in the morgue?

Not a bad entry for the series, kinda interesting but obviously could have been better.

Actually sat down and watched Audition. It was good psychological suspense drama. More of a gross-out horror film than a "I can't sleep tonight" film. Recommended for the great writing. =)
