The Screening Diet

...when the screen takes over...

Category: Review

Is it really a review? Maybe not. But this is where I lump most impression of, thoughts and afterthoughts on films, tv dramas, or any shows I’ve seen.

The Martian (2015)

We’ve tired the moon, so now let’s exploit Mars…

“Hah?!” — The Detective I Hate (私の嫌いな探偵, 2014)

I caught the drama “The Detective I Hate”/ “Watashi no Kirai na Tantei” (私の嫌いな探偵) on the Waku Waku Japan channel, retitled “Addicted to Mystery”. It ended this week and I thought I should “detox” while it was still fresh in mind.

Life is what you make of it — Marvellous (BBC Two, 2014)

“I always wanted to be happy. So I decided to be.” Neil Baldwin

And who is Neil Baldwin?

Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

I’ve got enough of superheroes. But this one has got J.A.R.V.I.S. evolved into flesh. The prospect of seeing Paul Bettany, not just the voice, on screen was too tempting.

The Tale of Princess Kaguya (かぐや姫の物語, 2013)

From the studio that brings some of the best animation features in the world, “Princess Kaguya” is a stunning and beautiful retelling of a famous folklore in Japan.

“Remember!” — Kill Me, Heal Me (킬미, 힐미, MBC 2015)

“Kill Me Heal Me” has been a mixed bag, but mostly fun. Throughout the journey of watching it (almost) live every week, there were moments where I had wished the drama’s pace had moved faster, explored certain things further, or dropped a plot.

Of course, hindsight is 20/20.
