TV Series Review: Crash Landing on You (TV-2020) - South Korea

Crash Landing on You (TV-2020) - South Korea   Season 1 - 16 Episodes Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   One of my favourite aspect of the latest all-star pairing of Hyun Bin and Son Ye-Jin’s Korean romantic drama “Crash Landing on You” is the realistic portrayal of North Korean lifestyle with just the right balance of the everyday lifestyle in the countryside and the contrast with the ultra rich and powerful living in Pyongyang. This is a beautifully paced drama from start to finish with rarely a dull moment in between. The casting is spot...

Film Review: The Last Thing He Wanted (2020) - USA

The Last Thing He Wanted (2020) - USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)This is a total disappointment of a film that boasted with an A-list casting and dampened by a hampered script and direction that is all over the place. A lack of vision from the director Dee Rees never settle for a particular genre instead blends a crime thriller, war journalism and illegal firepower trafficking and family drama all into one spiral of a film. There are many aspect of disappointment that contributed to the failure of the film as a whole and in the...

Film Review: All the Bright Places (2020) - USA

All the Bright Places (2020) - USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)The latest Netflix original romantic drama “All the Bright Places” is a good one and one about the often forgotten topic of mental heath for people growing up. Director Brett Haley successfully balanced the drama with plenty of realistic bouts of mental illness and almost certainly the brighter and darker times through its two beautifully captured main characters. This film shows the power of love and positive mindset can actually make a difference in one’s life. The always wonderful Elle Fanning and rising star Justice...

Film Review: Laundromat (2019) - USA

Laundromat (2019) - USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Something very interesting about the latest Netflix original film “Laundromat” is not the complicated subject matter that it deals with, but rather the simplicity nature that Director Steven Soderbergh, with a hectic screenplay by Scott Z. Burns manages to portray it on-screen. The “Panama Papers” notoriously did not get the maximum exposure from the global press as it should have been and the result is like the original intention of the people behind it all, to legally hide behind a scheme of events for tax avoidance...

Series Review: Designated Survivor: 60 Days (60일, 지정생존자) (TV-2019) - South Korea

Designated Survivor: 60 Days (60일, 지정생존자) (TV-2019) - South Korea   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia) Season 1: 16 episodes (1 hour each)   Riding on the back of the American successful TV series “Designated Survivor”, we get a rehash of sorts with everything Korean, from White House to Blue House, from Middle East threats to North Korea to a story that rhymes with the Korean general public. To say that this series succeeded is an understatement as it manages to stay fresh, despite many elements being inspired by the original and at the same time...
