Silver Screen Returns!

Yes. I’m bringing it back: Silver Screen 2-point-Oh. In my previous blog home I usually write short reviews on the latest movies that I’ve just seen. Sometimes in one movie-review-post I would feature at least three films and give out just my quick impressions on them. I kept doing that for sometime until it became a boring. I mean here am I writing my impressions on movies that most people have already seen or planning on seeing… so I lost interest on doing that.

This time around with Silver Screen 2.0, I plan to feature films of all types (Animation, Documentary, Live Action, Foreign, Local) that were actually good but didn’t had the chance to be shown in our local shores or were underrated. There were actually a lot of good films out there. Sometimes we just need to open our minds to them. So here I am again, inviting you to join me in my journey to the different realms of Moving Pictures!


Thirsty for Blood?

Ahh… Jun ji-hyun. I remember the time when I first saw you in the Korean hit: My Sassy Girl. How you wowed me by your performance as the cute sadistic female protagonist in the film. How you sparked the Korean romatic comedy formula mania here in the Philippines. How me and my brother scoured the internet and the bowels of Quiapo to search for your previous films (White Valentine, Il Mare, WindStruck, The Uninvited, Daisy and A Man Who was Superman <- just theatrically released, have to wait for it to surface in the net or dibidi). Films which you portrayed different characters with such charm and cuteness. In a way we are blinded by your spell, wishing that you will star in a new movie.

And so our wishes came true with Blood The Last vampire

a live-action film adaptation of Blood: The Last Vampire, directed by Ronny Yu, and primarily filmed in English rather than Japanese. The film’s setting is shifted slightly from the anime to 1948 at a United States Army camp in Tokyo, shortly after the conclusion of World War II during the American occupation of Japan. Saya (Jun ji-hyun) will be a 400-year-old half human-half vampire who hunts vampires which are also her only source for food. Normally a loner, Saya forms a friendship with a young girl while preparing to battle Onigen, the highest ranking of the vampires. -Wikipedia

Thank you Jun. Now if you could only change your English screen name (Gianna Jun — I don’t know how to pronouce it, Geeyana or Jeeyana) to something more catchy and sexy then I would love you more.
