Review: Secrets In The Hot Spring (切小金家的旅館)

I really enjoyed this film a lot as well. I had zero expectations going into the film and it brought me so much laughter. In fact, I watched this in a cinema on a weekend and there were less than ten people in the theatre. I was pretty convinced it would be bad… but I ended up loving it. The key to enjoying this movie is to not take it too seriously and you will find that it does bring you a lot of joy 🙂

Xiao Jin is a 20 year old delinquent high schooler who gets a call from his grandparents and returns to the old family spa hotel with his friends, Lu Qun and Little Princess, only to find out that the hotel is haunted.

Review:

Taiwan seems to be on a roll for “youth films” with films like Boyfriend, GirlfriendYou’re The Apple of My Eye and Our Times that every time I see a “youth movie” from Taiwan I’m almost tempted to lap it up. Of course, I’ve experienced many, MANY disappointments where I cringed at another dumb slapstick classroom humour and shallow characters dangling their legs as while looking out into the far off horizon.

Year-End Special: 2018 Drama Round-Up

2018 dramas

Better late than never? This is a long overdue post since the holidays never gave me a chance to lie down and write my drama thoughts. 2018 was a combination of bad and good things that happened in my life — and so, the dramas that I have watched this year were no different.

This year was definitely more productive than my last (click here for my 2017 round-up) but it was not necessarily a good thing as this year has proven that less is more when it comes to watching dramas.

I will have a lot more to say here so come with me in looking back at the dramas that I have watched this year!
