Crazy Little Thing Called Love

I apologize for the delay, and the inconsistent posting of reviews. I've been rendering a lot of overtime in my current work, and when I get home, I just fall asleep. I've been waking up late as well so there's really no time to post. I apologize for that. I'll try to be better and more consistent. I missed doing this!

As a comeback, I decided to watch a movie close to home, produced in one of my neighboring countries Thailand. Crazy Little Thing Called Love, also known as First Love, was a 2010 Thai movie starring Mario Maurer and  Pimchanok Luevisadpaibul. The movie was directed by Puttipong Pormsaka Na-Sakonnakorn and Wasin Pokpong. The cast also included awesome people like Sudarat Budtporm, Tangi namonto, Pijitra Siriwerapan, Acharanat Ariyaritwikol, and Kachamat Pormsaka Na-Sakonnakorn. I wished they used the story of Acharanat Ariyaritwikol's character to build up the story, but everything turned out very well. Also, I wished they showed Kachamat Pormsaka Na-Sakonnakorn cause she looked really beautiful in this movie. 

It's a little like a fairy tale (minus the fairy). A little like Cinderella, and Ugly Duckling, and a little bit of everything else. It was mainly a love story, a story about young love, and the first experience of it. It's a cute movie. I don't know what's wrong with me using the word cute, but it really was a cute movie. Very light, and very romance-y, but not that cheesy. Well it was a bit cheesy, but nothing too extreme for the context of the movie. It was a movie about transformation, one directed to get the attention of the person being liked, but as it turned out, it did wonders for the people involved anyway. 

For a movie most people would categorize as a chick flick, a lot of guys recommended and raved about this movie. It was funny, actually, how some of my friends would even post about it on social networking sites. I've heard about this movie from some people, but when a lot of my friends recommended thismovie, I was very surprised. As much as I loved movies, I never thought I'd actually go see it. But a lot of people had been saying great things about it that there's now way I could pass up the chance to watch it. Ending up liking it was an even bigger surprise. 

It was actually pretty good. While watching it, I just knew a lot of girls would love this movie, and a lot of guys would appreciate it too. I'm not even denying that I liked it. I'll say that the movie worked the way it did, because of the chemistry the two main actors had. The two main characters had charisma and accessibility that made the audience relate to them easily. They both did amazing and it was really good to see them in their characters. It's a simple story, simple plot, but the twists and turns of it made it special; and the actors made it even more special. I really liked the cast of the movie, and they were pretty funny as well which made me enjoy the movie even more.

It's a very good movie to see the Thai culture as well. I apologize for this, but I wasn't really all that familiar with the Thai lifestyle and culture. But I felt like I got introduced to it by watching this movie. If anyone in Thailand can answer me, please tell me if everyone there uses a motorcycle. I thought it was pretty cool that even kids drive motorcycles, and that they practice safety measures. Also, another question, what Thai qualities can be spotted int his movie? Please, educate me. I am very interested. 

It was a good movie. I had a lot of laughs, and I greatly enjoyed it. Definitely must check out if you're into foreugn cinema. I am very appreciative of any movie, especially movies made in different places. That's why I also liked watching Fermat's Room, Remember O Goddess, The Professor and His Beloved Equation, etc. I like movies from all over the world and this just made it to the list of the ones I really liked.
