Tai Chi Hero
I wasn’t too fond of Stephen Fung’s “Tai Chi Zero” and so I was very reluctant to continue on with this trilogy with his “Tai Chi Hero”. Honestly, I barely even remember …

Nurse Diary: Wicked Finger

The Tower (Korean film)

The Tower (Korean film)
I wasn’t too impressed with the monster flick “Sector 7”, but I guess I was curious how director Kim Ji-Hoon would fare in a disaster movie. “The Tower” is a film that has …

Tai Chi Hero
   Unlike many other critics I know and correspond with, I tend to struggle with traditional martial arts movies.  It isn’t that I don’t like or I don’t find them particularly …

Sion Sono is one director that is definitely controversial. His films range from the bizarre to the weird, to something more commercial and even going to the darkness that makes one doubt humanity. Sono’s …

The Taste of Money
    I always find it more than a bit ironic when rich, artsy types feel the need to expose just how far money corrupts.  On occasions – such as in Im Sang-soo’s stellar …
