The remake for the lakorn version aired today January 28, 2013 starring Bie Sukrit and ‘Noona’ Neungthida Sophon on Ch5, now it is time to take a look at the film remake of ‘Khu Kam or Koo Gum (Ill-fated lovers) from M39 productions starring Nadech Kugimiya and newcomer Richey Omrawadee. The plot centers around a love story between a Japanese officer and young Thai woman. It is directed by ‘Leo’ Kittikorn Liawsirikul, his other works include: That sounds good (2010), Dream Team (2008), The Bullet Wife (2005), Saving Private Tootsie (2002) and several more. Odd, how I have never seen any of his films. None of them, so I can’t give you a take on if he is good or not.
A horror film from Mthirtynine productions, the English title is ‘I miss you’, the Thai title is ‘Taa Ruk Chan, Ya Kit Teung Chan (If you love me, don’t miss me)’. From what I got from the teaser, if you miss someone badly enough who has passed away, they will return. ‘Tik’ Jesadaporn Pholdee’s co-stars for the film are Ja Natthaweeranuch and ’Saipan’ Apinya Sakuljaroensuk. The director is Monthon Arayangkul and the song playing in the teaser is titled ”Ruk Ter Tang Mot Kong Hua Jai (I love you with all my heart)’ song by Joe Amarin Luangboriboon.
Tik:’My love, when I think of you, do you think of me? When I think of your smile, will you smile back at me? When I think about when we were together, are you still standing beside me? There are many things I have not told you, there are many things I have not done for you, before I knew you were leaving me–departed forever to not return. ‘
‘ATM Errak…error’ is a film by GTH, the feel-good studio of Thailand and is being released nationwide Thailand on January 19th, 2012. There is a scene in the 2nd trailer for the film that is not in the international Englished subbed trailer that I found hilarious.
First off, the synopsis of the film:
Sua (Ter – Chantavit Dhnasevi) and Jib (Ice -Preechaya Pongthananikorn) are like any other couple in this world except for one exception: for the past 5 years they have kept their relationship a secret since the bank where they are employed has a strict “No Fraternization” policy. It’s not a big deal until they decide to get married. The only problem? Which one of these two Type-A overachievers will put marriage before a career and resign? With neither willing to take the leap of faith they both turn incident into opportunity when an ATM glitch in Chonburi province cashes out over $130,000 baht. The terms are simple: whoever is able to recover the money first gets to keep their job. The couple will turn into no holds barred competitors. Who will literally “go big” in their career or “go home” in this romantic comedy about what two people won’t do for each other in the name of love? It’s the age old battle of the sexes but this time around how can victory be easily declared in a war where there are no more traditional “rules of engagement”
To the funny scene I was talking about. The characters Sua and Jib are arguing in the elevator about their relationship and who should quit their position at the bank and become the homemaker. Sua refuses because he is a man, Jib argues everyone is doing it–the wife is the main breadwinner in the relationship. Na Ah, according to Sua, only gigolos do that and he ain’t no gigolo. HAHA.
Being release this October the 20th is Ploy Chermarn and Pae Arak’s romantic comedy ‘Ruk 30 buak (Love 30 + or just 30+)’ directed by ‘Phet’ Puttipong Pormsaka Na-Sakonnakorn, the director for Mario and Baifern’s hit film ‘A Little Thing Called Love’, for Sahamongkol Films.
Filming took place in many beautiful locations across Bangkok–the forecourt of Central World Square, Rajprasong, Sukhumvit, Thong Lor, Ekamai and down south to the seaside cities of Cha-am and Hua Hin.
Not only have the locations been stellar, the relationship between the cast and crew have been stellar too. Ploy Chermarn has stated she loves working on this film so much, she doesn’t want it to end. That’s nice, I’m glad she is happy.
Produced by RS productions, directed by Yuthlert Sippapak, starring Wisawa “Tomo” Taiyanonnt, Kaew Sirimongkonsakol, “Bank” Athigit Pringprom, Mario Maurer, and Pae Arak and is being release to a Thai theater near you on September 1, 2011 is “Bangkok Kungfu”.
The trailer ends with Tomo’s blood splattered face and Kaew ending it with:”In love there is no winners or losers, only who hurts less or more.”–oh that is nice.
The premise of the film is of friendship, love, and dreams.
Been waiting since I heard about it, it’s been a couple of months. I was not disappointed.
I was disappointed in ‘Love Julinsee’, I did not understand that film at all, near the end with ‘Kao’ Jirayu La-ongmane and ‘Mo’ Monchanok Saengchaipiangpen’s segment about love between two friends, it got ridiculous. Two best friends decide to take their relationship to the next level, they decide to date. The guy is all into the relationship, he is open and cheerful, he tells everyone they are dating, he even craved their names with a heart on a wooden bus bench to which I thought was cute. She, on the other, was embarrassed and yelled at him, ‘why do you have to tell everyone? Aren’t you embarrassed?’ The girl was rather confusing, she initiated the relationship and he was doing what is expected of him, being a doting boyfriend.
The part when he kissed her on the bench when she was napping, she became defensive. ‘Are you satisfied?’
He lend back and apologized, ‘I’m sorry.’
She then asked, ‘why did you kiss me?’
I was taken back by that question and Kao gave an answer I would have given. ‘Because we are boyfriend and girlfriend, everyone is doing it.’
She charged back with: ‘your concept of being a boyfriend and girlfriend, do we have to kiss?’—what? Well yea, in America, we do.
Kao’s character is all confuse, this is his first girlfriend and his first kiss. “Well, it wouldn’t be damaging. Have you ever kissed anyone?’
“Then What?’ She snapped back at him.
“I just wanted to know.’ He replied. She then implied that he should have asked her something else, like if she had slept with anyone. That girl has a lot of insecurity issues. She had no trust in her best friend who became her boyfriend. She automatically assumed he was a hot-blooded guy who wanted her for one thing, it’s starts with the letter ‘S’.
She starts yelling at him even after he said, ‘you are misunderstanding me.’
‘You date me, you love me, or maybe you just want.’ Hey gal, you’re totally going off track. To me, it could have been such a beautiful moment, but she ruined it and made him cry.
SUCKSEED made me laugh and here are two of my favorite parts in the film.
