  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "My Boy"

    2014/04/26
    I-cheon (played by Lee Suk-chul) is a fairly typical surly teenager. He's rude to everyone, including his younger brother Yoo-cheon (played by Jo Wang-byul). The opening portion of "My Boy" immerses the viewer in this adolescent environment. I-cheon isn't a particularly likable young man. He doesn't even have any kind of rebellious charm. The older boy's just a jerk in the making, and there's no apparent impetus to help him change his attitude. Just the awkwardness of everyday life. Then Yoo-cheon gets sick, and I-cheon's angry, disaffected attitude takes a troubling turn. His life is no less purposeless. There's still no hope on the horizon to change I-cheon's attitude,...More

  • [HanCinema's Hall of Fame Review] "Mozart Town": A Daring and Dreamy Debut

    2014/06/28
    In the Spotlight this Week: Jeon Kyu-hwan's "Mozart Town": Life in a metropolis can be unforgiving and cruel. The buildings are imposing and the diversity of being is impressive, if not uncomfortably humbling; and it becomes all too easy, perhaps even necessary, to go about one's business bearing blinders and minding your own matters. But collisions are inevitable, uncomfortable and random, and sometimes--if the conditions are just right--multiple lives merge and travel together for a time, only to eventually fork off out into the cityscape. Enter "Mozart Town", a discerning debut that poetically peels back the concrete curtains of big city life to reveal, for better or worse, life under the log. These 'Humans of Seoul' that are found wriggling, are put under Jeon's lens and followed, their dreary existence exposed, and their flaws magnified under the leering light of cinematic attention and focus,...More

    The "Captain" remains on course... The weather may be heating up but Marvel's "Winter Soldier" still managed to stick it out for yet another week at the top of the pile. The comic captain added another 242,939 admissions (24.2%) over this past weekend to bump its bottom line to $28.6M (3.7M admissions), securing its place as the fourth highest grossing film of the year. The "Captain", however, had some stiff competition this time around as Neil Burger's sci-fi action film "Divergent" snatched a virtuous 212K (21.1%) during its first weekend out. Overall, foot traffic has been soft this year, and the Korean representatives have struggled to find/maintain traction in the top ten,...More

    "The Winter Soldier" stands his ground… Marvel's second instalment of their "Captain America" series came out again on top this past weekend, pulling in additional 470,782 admissions (33.6%) to advance its total tally now to 3.3M. "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" landed in Korea late March and has since remained the country's film of choice; an impressive feat given the continuous shuffling we've see at the box office this year. Globally, the film has amassed a monstrous $476M thus far and has been praised/enjoy by critics and fans alike,...More

    "Captain America" strikes again… After weeks of cycling the crown the Korean box office has finally awarded a second term at the top. Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" stormed onto the scene last weekend and has managed to retain the number one position with over 760K admissions. The film, which recently broke the April ticket tally in the States, now moves onto 2.6M admissions in Korea and has grossed over $303M worldwide. Its nearest rival came in the form of the French-American thriller "3 Days to Kill", directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol (aka "McG") with the story itself by Luc Besson, which managed second place with only 117,175 admissions to its name,...More
