When I heard K-Pop for the first time, I felt Psy is Mozart. :whistling:

At least his songs are catchy; this is just... like a glass of lukewarm water, bread seven days old, or chips you've found behind the sofa.

I wonder...will Splish Splash earn the distinction of becoming the most unpopular and disliked Cup entry ever? It certainly stands a fair chance of that the way things are looking now...

Could just as well be. So far cocoa is the only one who didn't rank it #4 and he didn't even like the movie as well.

Btw, since you've seen it, will you be voting this match?

My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

When I said my initial comments about this, mjf said that I must hate fun.

That may be true, but if this is what fun is I'd much rather be a depressed and boring fuck.

Wherein precisely lies the appeal for you? The male lead? The female lead? The K-pop tunes? The soppy love story?

I don't remember the music but I liked both leads, the time traveling, the silliness, the math and science, the hangul, and the tteokbokki. The romance was ok but it wasn't my favorite part of the story.

I loved most parts of Padurea spânzuratilor. It has some great shots, especially in the war-scenes. The quality wasn't up that level the whole time, so I thought it was a tad too long, but overall I thoroughly enjoyed it.

25 Watts wasn't bad, but didn't do a lot to me.

Already posted about SSL.

I watched Megáll az idö four years ago. No need for a rewatch though, because the ratings were clear enough.

1. Padurea spânzuratilor 9-/10
2. Megáll az idö 7+/10
3. 25 Watts 6/10
4. Splash Splash Love 4/10

None of the movies really gripped me.

So, 25 Watts was the only one I enjoyed enough to give it a rewatch someday. That means: not a great round, for me. Both Romania and Hungary have much better films. I hope they both do get through, so those films can be picked for the next rounds. :)

btw, talking about Romanian films, I just download the film Rascoala, but there is no subtitles.

Does anyone have interest in the translation work?

Also, I wonder if mjf has watched this before. Somehow the plot of Splash Splash Love reminds me this anime I watched during my childhood.

No Romanian forum members here as far as I know. Plus the language is way too distant from anyone's maternal one.

Megall az ido: I loved this film; however, it is so flawed. The story is all over the place. It's almost like a puzzle that repeats itself and doesn't follow its own rules. The amazing thing about it is the technical part. The director tried so many techniques that made the movie a bit schizophrenic but I gave him a pass on how great he did it. All the photography angles, shots, styles, etc. The use of music was perfection. The characters created, situations, etc.

I don't know which came first but this movie reminds me a lot of some Asian directors, specially Wong Kar-Wai. The inside shots with the saturation of colors, the camera angles, the retro music tied to the romance, the fatalism of love, etc.

I should be starting 1D now, but I have no time. I'll try to do it tomorrow before I go to work. If that won't do, it'll be tomorrow evening. But of course you can already start watching.

Look at it this way: there's a much better probability for European countries simply statistics-wise, because quantity produces quality + in this case, tradition plays the role. Since Uruguay and South Korea are pretty much late bloomers compared to the other two, this shouldn't surprise you.
