HanCinema Review: Entertainers Episode 11

(Image and text are samples from my work on HanCinema.net and belong to HanCinema.) This episode of Entertainers was particularly heartwarming. As is the trend with the drama, things resolve a bit too easily and the media doesn’t have enough power. Despite those faults, there is just something about Seok-ho and his boys that turnsContinue reading “HanCinema Review: Entertainers Episode 11”

HanCinema Review: Entertainers Episode 10

(Image and text are samples from my work on HanCinema.net and belong to HanCinema.) Entertainers episode 10 was, simply put, the strongest it has ever been. The emotional beats were well-played, flowed into plot action, and then twisted into gripping turmoil. My complaints remain, but episode 10 effectively minimized them to nearly negligible. All ofContinue reading “HanCinema Review: Entertainers Episode 10”

(The text is a sample from my work on HanCinema.net and belongs to HanCinema.)

We have eight episodes to go and it’sContinue reading “HanCinema Review: Jackpot Episode 16”

Despite big reveals and a lot of action, these events lack the impact that is necessary to drawn in viewers. Predictability is a double-edged sword. It can heighten anticipation, but it canContinue reading “HanCinema Review: Jackpot Episode 15”

HanCinema Review: Jackpot Episode 14

(Image and text are samples from my work on HanCinema.net and belong to HanCinema.) Ratings go down for Jackpot as my opinion of it goes up. Isn’t it funny how such things work? The brothers triumphed together last episode and this episode brought the expected troubles and downfall. Dae-gil, despite his luck, continues to beContinue reading “HanCinema Review: Jackpot Episode 14”

HanCinema Review: Jackpot Episode 13

(Image and text are samples from my work on HanCinema.net and belong to HanCinema.) Jackpot came in at 8.7% for episode 13, maintaining it’s percentage rating. The show, however, has improved from the hyperactive activity that defined its first few weeks. Now the plot steadily moves forward. It does this by adding characters and theirContinue reading “HanCinema Review: Jackpot Episode 13”
