    Review: '50 First Kisses' doesn't play quite as well as original American film

    The central premise of 50 First Dates has been so popular that there have been three remakes of the film in different languages, with 50 First Kisses being the latest version of the seemingly timeless tale — on the island of Hawaii, a playboy finds true love in the form of a woman who relives the same day over and over again, unable to form any new memories after a terrible accident. The Japanese remake, however, throws us a pair of uncharismatic leads in the form of Takayuki Yamada (Daisuke) and Masami Nagasawa (Rui).

    Review: Slapstick or emotional? 'Brother of the Year' is both

    Brother of the Year is one of those films that defy categorisation because the story veers into wildly different emotional beats at times. While it has some romantic comedy elements, the Thai film also goes into family drama territory. If you’re not a fan of slapstick, you can skip the first quarter of the film — which sees the reunion of older brother Chut (Sunny Suwanmethanont) and younger sister Jane (Urassaya Sperbund) after having lived apart for years.
