      Its cheesy touched me deeply

      I give this movie five stars without having seen the original.

      After reading it, I hurriedly called my friend with tears in my eyes. I'd say it's a cheesey-to-the-end film, a 80s fashion film made with 21st century standards. The singing and dancing in the middle looked goosebumps all over. Modern people also use singing and dancing, but modern people are usually busy dressing up in literature and art, and they are busy dressing up as tacky, which is very remarkable.

      funny tragedy

      After watching the original Korean version of "The Bizarre Murder without Publicity", I watched this film again. Sure enough, the country is different, and the flavor of the filming is also different. The Japanese version seems to be more hilarious, and it fully utilizes the Japanese people's true nature. The dialogue in which the family dances and sings when the guest commits suicide is too classic, and there is an old-fashioned karaoke MV, which is absolutely amazing. The film highlights...

      keeping mum warm family comedy

      There are a few movies that don't seem to be made by Sanchi, "China's Birdman", "Ghost Xiaozhu".
      However, after watching "The Uninvited Guest Q", you can know that Miike is actually a director who is surly on the outside but full of warmth in his heart. Coincidentally, the director Shinya Tsukamoto is the same. Behind the perverted and weird "Snake of June", the story It's still a love story and a family ethics story.
      "Fucking Little Building" simply threw aside the surly coat and...

      The remake of Jin Zhiyun's "The Incident of Losing His Soul", but it can find another way. Whether it is animation or the use of singing and dancing, this film has a magical chemical reaction. The singing and dancing are reminiscent of "Eight Beautiful...

    Evaluation action

    The film is a musical remake of the 1999 Korean film " The Quiet Family ".
    First of all, I would like to declare here that the movie "Death" will be watched first, and the movie "Going" will be second. It is beyond reproach that the film "Death" has been given great recognition internationally. Winner of the Portuguese International Fantasy Film Festival Award.
    I thought that the film "Do" was just a blind copy. In fact, it is not. The...
