    just got from the Advanced Screening of "Stoker" awhile ago from Robinsons Movieworld and i must say that i loved it (while my friend hated it coz she found it so sick, i told her after the movie to see Oldboy but said no, hahaha)

    those who are not familiar with how sick some Korean psycho-thrillers could ever get would get the shock of their lives like my friend. and i don't think i have to spoil some of them for you, some of those are already suggested at the trailer.

    there are times where watching this film felt so much like watching a Korean thriller except that the only Koreans in this film are the director and some crew if you saw the opening credits and the cast consisted of Caucasians which means eliminating the "need to read the movie". it works for the movie's advantage and you simply have to brace yourself for whatever crazy sh!t is bound to happen knowing that as early as the first 15 minutes of the movie, you get the gist that the widowed mother is not the only psychologically unstable among the characters.

    the long shots are nice that they should have done away with the shaky cam treatment. besides the performances that the cast dished out are brilliant. it's like imagine seeing some psychologically disturbed people who try their darnest to act normal (at least, they try) but fail because the people around them could see how unstable are they. that's how i perceived, India, her mother and Charlie turned out to be.

    colorful cinematography that complimented the subliminal use of musical scoring and nuanced performances that looked like suppressed boiling kettles (on the brink of bursting), i enjoyed the film. i know my movie companion would call me sick in the head for saying it but perhaps i am like India who get attracted to the sick and disturbing without knowing totally why

    I actually found the movie interesting, being a fan of dark movies. It's a dark, twisted, fairy tale of sorts.

    Jacki Weaver should count her blessings - she is also co-starring with Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in The Silver Linings Playbook, which also opens this week

    We don' t need to be friends... we' re family.--India Stoker

    nung di ko pa siya napanood parang wala lang yung sinabi ni India na to sa trailer but after the movie may deep meaning pala yan.

    OMG almost 24 hours na siya ng mapanood ko nasa mind ko pa rin ang movie thats the sign na may impact siya

    3 for foreign directors, the best way to tell a story is visually with as little dialogue as possible. case in point Let the Right One in by tomas Alfredsson

    4 sequel? the stoker trilogy?
    rumor has it that it's a prequel entitled "Uncle Charlie"

    Colin Firth was set to play Uncle Charlie but had to drop out.

    Imagine the movie with him and not Matthew Goode.

    IMHO Matthew Goode was perfect for the role.

    Review: Stoker (2013)



    Stoker is the first English-Language film under the direction of Park Chan-wook, a famous South Korean horror/thriller film director. The screenplay is written by Ted Foulke, pseudonym of Prison Break star Wentworth Miller. The film follows the story of India Stoker (Wasikowska), whose father Richard (Mulroney) died in a car accident. At the funeral, she and her mother Evelyn (Kidman) get to know Richard’s brother Charlie (Goode), who was unknown to them in the past. Charlie decides to stay with India and Evelyn, as they grieve the loss of Richard. India then discovers there is more to the decision of her Uncle Charlie to stay with them to keep them company as she uncovers Charlie’s gruesome past. The film takes us on a journey of thrills as we uncover the real mystery of Charlie and what really happened with Richard Stoker.

    The direction of Park Chan-wook is the strongest suit of the film. It was my first time seeing one of his works and I love it. His direction really gives you the thrill you want, keeping you at the edge of your seat as the story slowly unravels. His frequent use of close-ups and unfocused shots added to it as well as the perfect selection of scenes, sequenced just the way you would have wanted it to be.

    Wentworth Miller did a good script, although it was a little bit predictable. But still, the unraveling of the mystery of Uncle Charlie was the best. It could have been just your typical psycho thriller, but it turned out to be one of the best thrillers you will ever watch.

    The film was not neglected in terms of acting. Of course you can’t really leave out Nicole Kidman, as she portrayed her role as the unloving, careless mother, but the kudos go to Wasikowska and Goode. I believe that the two actors were perfectly casted for their roles. Wasikowska portrayed the development of India Stoker very well, from the silent mysterious teenage girl transitioning to a ruthless, unpredictable woman. I have read that Colin Firth got the role of Uncle Charlie first but had to drop out but it was the best thing to happen as Goode was so brilliant for the role. He portrayed the astonishingly handsome yet very mysterious uncle beautifully. You’ll see his right mix od charm and creepiness, as he gets you drawn to his beautiful eyes (thanks to the close-up shots) but really get creeped out afterwards.

    One of the best scenes of the film is that infamous sensual piano scene where you’ll feel the sexual tension, the thrill, the awe, the creep and all the other emotions the movie tries to evoke from you, all at the same time. That was really a great scene by Wasikowska and Goode.

    The film is truly a must-watch, definitely one of the best films this year. I am looking forward to see more films by Park Chan-wook and I think Wentworth Miller has the potential to write great screenplays in the future, so looking forward to see his scripts as well.

    Rating: 10/10

    Director: Park Chan-wook
    Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode, Dermot Mulroney, Jacki Weaver

    Stoker is now showing in theaters nationwide.

    Grabe. Di ko inexpect to. I loved everything. Kala ko aantukin ako pero no. Mulat na mulat ako from beginning to end. Di ko naforesee yung twist. Haha.

    Im crushing on matthew goode. Natawa ako dun sa part na hinahabol ni charlie yung school bus ni india and yung girls sa bus tumili nung magsmile si charlie.

    And si wentworth miller ba ay yung nasa prison break dati?

    Too bad nga konti *** nanood. Di pe nga kami sampu dun sa loob.

    Best movie ive seen so far this year.
