A Sunday School student of mine checked out my blog site this past week and told me a few days ago that she watched You Are My Pet from a link I had posted. As I was talking with her, one thing led to another, and I had this small epiphany: Wouldn’t it be fun to have a weekly post on a particular movie I have either watched and recommend OR a movie about which I’ve heard good reviews. And of course, if any of you want to suggest movies for future posts, that would be a bonus!
So, with this in mind, I present to you my first Movie Monday selection: Hello Ghost.
Links to the movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpCYfXtNmLY (raw) and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1aAq5Af-RM (English subbed…just make sure to switch the CC on at the bottom of the video or search for other English-subbed uploads on youtube.com)
Overall, this is a heart-warming movie about a man who believes he is all alone in the world, but with the aid of four very random and odd ghosts, he learns to appreciate life and realizes that he’s never really been alone. His family has always been with him, watching over him.
I usually don’t like emotional dramas, but I did watch this one because Cha Tae Hyun has a reputation for selecting projects that I enjoy (Who can ever forget My Sassy Girl?) LOL. Although I was a bit wary of the movie at the beginning, as the pieces of the plot started to coalesce, I found myself warmed by the message of unity and legacy that one person’s life lives on in others and that your loved ones really never leave you.
So if you have two hours of free time and are wondering how to spend them, I would suggest giving Hello Ghost a view. I definitely found it worth two hours of my life. 🙂
