Last night, I finally got to watch the Thai movie, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, which became a hit not only to Thai audiences, but to many Filipino teens as well. Make that ‘teens who are always on Facebook and actually care about Asian entertainment’. We wouldn’t have known about it if it was released like 10 years ago because it’s not shown nor promoted in the country. Let me begin by saying that the movie reminded me of those Korean movies that jump-started the Hallyu like My Sassy Girl.
My Sassy Girl of Thailand. You may quote me on that.
Seems like the Thai film industry is starting to catch up and I wouldn’t be surprised if a year or two from now, Thai-wave will take over Asia. PAKSHET NAPAG-IWANAN NA NAMAN TAYO?! We should’ve been next to Korea! Filmmakers, please stop producing movies that are just about poverty, prostitution and other depressing shit because there’s more to our country than Slumdog Millionaire-like themes! Fantasy movies and comedies about mothers with 10 children??? It’s time to move forward! MORE RPG METANOIA, PLEASE!
Whew. Now that I got that off my chest, lemme start with my “not-so-review”.
