I just watched Akihiko Shiota’s A Heartful of Love. I’m a great fan of Shiota and I know him for his (more or less) disturbing or strange movies (Moonlight Whispers, Harmful Insect, Gips, Canaria…) so maybe can imagine how surprised I was that this turned out to be “just another japanese tear drama” (yeah yeah, I have seen the name of the movie but still, it was Shiota).
Assassination is an action thriller by Dong-hoon Choi. The setting is set in South Korea and Shanghai in 1933 during the Japanese occupation. While there are many Korean movies set in that time, Assassination follows a different way. It starts very confusing about the characters and the different parties.
Watched: The Beauty Inside
I have watched this today. This is a Korean drama and reminded me of movies like A Moment to Remember or Always even though it wasn’t as good as these two.
Watched this today. Seems like this is the Korean American Pie with a little more deepness.
Watched: The Backwater
I watched this 2 days ago. I wouldn’t call it boring but in my opinion, this was very dull.

Feature: Anticipated Movies of 2015
I wanted this to be a “best movie of 2015” post but after realizing that I haven’t even one Asian movie from 2015 in my list (which really surprised me), I changed it so now this post is listing all movies which deserves to be watched.
