I Told Sunset About You (2020)
How all BL's should be like
As an avid consumer of thai BL I can without a thought say that this was my favorite. The script is well-done and well delivered. The main factor for its greatness is that it addresses the problems that thai BL's tend to overlook. So by being more about the real issues of loving someone of the same sex and discovering one's sexuality it makes the viewer engrossed in the story. There is endless teasing and the chemistry between the two main actors is great. Side characters were a little overlooked and at times not so well developed (the brother and mother of teh). But overall is excellent work and I'm anxiously waiting for its second season.
Alice in Borderland (2020)
A good way to pass time, but not worth the hype
The first two episodes are kind of worth it. After that, it just feels lackluster, not so entertaining, and attention-grabbing. The backstories of the characters are not always that necessary and sometimes even cut scenes that are of interest, looks like a collage. As it progresses it loses more and more, it becomes a violent battle between the rational and the irrational, totally expectable. The conclusions at which the main character reaches are also not so perceptive and well explained as in the beginning, it becomes more about humans than about the game. That's why in my opinion, is not some groundbreaking work. Mainly because it can be compared with so many other great works with a similar dystopian story that are so much better.
It coudl've been better
From watching the trailer, I had high expectations. So watching the movie disappointed me. Story-wise it lacked in some ways. For example, the change in the periods was not well done, could've been smoother. While watching it didn't move me, it lacked intensity, and when it was intense it was too rushed and confusing. Some characters were not well introduced and others were just so insignificant and down-played when they shouldn't have, for instance, BanBan and the priest. Maybe if they had just made it a 2 hour or more movie it could've been better. Overall it was a good movie, the first half is without a doubt superior to the last, the two main characters (young version) were the only saving point for me. The ending was not that bad. I enjoy it when it leaves something out in the open for the viewer to interpret as he wishes.
