HAEUNDAE Floods Canada

The Korea disaster blockbuster HAEUNDAE washed ashore Canada last weekend. The general verdict -- not bad, for a genre everybody already knows well. The biggest split were between those who considered HAEUNDAE's head-slapping, plentiful-emoting ways to be refreshingly different or just ridiculous.


Here is the Toronto Sun review - 3/5 stars
The Globe and Mail review - 2/4 stars
The Toronto Star review - 2.5/4 stars
And the National Post review - 2 stars (out of 4, I presume, but am not 100% sure)

The averages out to 55.6%. Damn Canadians. I have not seen any information about when and where else HAEUNDAE might be coming, but if I do, I will let you know.

Missed watching this while in Puchon but as I expected it's opening in S'pore in the next few weeks. I do feel like watching it but almost for... research. Incidentally, "My Girlfriend is An Agent" is opening here soon. Can't figure out why the sudden wave *chuckle* into cinemas here. It's exam period in S'pore -- uh, exams and Koreans? Anyway you're doing well in Spain.
