What are we running from Netflix reviews

Answered By: Patrick Gonzales Date: created: Oct 19 2023

5 /10 it’s okay I liked the suspense but it starts becoming long and drawn out by episode 5. It becomes repetitive. In the beginning they say they have to lay low and not attract attention but in every single episode they do things that bring attention to themselves.

This would have been better as a movie to get straight to the point instead of a series. There are too many fluff scenes and fluff dialogue. The cast is good looking and the location settings are beautiful. They’re staying at 5 star hotels and blowing through money fast. Alot of their problems wouldn’t have happened if they lived a simple life so I guess the story is not supposed to make sense or be logical.

Still a good watch to pass time or before bed.43 out of 50 found this helpful. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. Permalink 8 /10 This was a mysterious series that had my interest and sparked my imagination until the very end. This is a unique story adapted from Perihan Magden’s novel of the same name with an allegory for Bambi throughout.

  • The casting was amazing as Melisa Sözen does an amazing job playing the enigmatic “mother” and likewise Eylül Tumbar really knocks it out of the park as the naive daughter “Bambi”.
  • The high end hotel sets are fabulous as is the music, both of which support and build the mystery in this intriguing story.

I can’t reveal too much about the story (It is a mystery after all), other than to say it is loosely about a woman who has been on the run and raised her daughter into her teenage years in hotels. Her daughter, who is innocent and very naïve, doesn’t really know who her mother truly is or what she is willing to do to protect them.but she is finally old enough to start asking questions.

The story is told primarily from Bambi’s perspective, with additional perspectives told through flashbacks and during interviews. There are seven episodes and what starts as a mystery becomes a bit of a cat and mouse. This is an intriguing story that was truly unique, my mind had a lot of fun guesses what the backstory was and where the series was going.and in my book that means it’s a great story that is worth watching.

This is a strong recommendation for fans of mystery and intrigue. The backdrops for this story are gorgeous and it’s a great way to practice your Turkish! My review is based on watching this series in it’s original Turkish with English subtitles.3 out of 3 found this helpful.

  • Permalink 4 /10 They were always running away from the poor writing, apparently.
  • The script is replete with naive and fanciful word flourishes that are meaningless fluff, and also with many, many instances of outlandish, improbable, illogical scenarios.
  • For cheap emotional shortcuts, it leans heavily on Disney’s Bambi, which is a pretty traumatic children’s tale to start with.

So, it’s mostly a crap production, with some beautiful looks, sometimes good acting, but featuring totally over-the-top, histrionic, ridiculous ‘baddie’ characters as antagonists. I don’t think one is supposed to sympathize with a bunch of criminal acts, but it starts to seem justified, and then you just want every other person in this thing to get whacked asap, because almost everyone in the world they inhabit is an interfering moron.

When a character says, “I’m going to get changed,” it hardly follows that the character then disappears for an extended shower that was never mentioned.

A law enforcement officer angrily says some total nonsense, that 2 vacationer suspects are ‘bucking the system’, which is hardly what’s been depicted, nor a crime in any way. Another one shouts out for people to “stop running,” and no one at all is running anywhere.

The biggest jackhole of the production tells a professional who exhibits nothing but normal competency to “stay calm.” Of course, it’s a woman in security that a male bro-dude in law enforcement is speaking to. Then, she gets browbeaten for one single event at one location, and without her prior knowledge of any crime, after a parade of thoroughly informed men have previously failed to prevent prior escapes from multiple locations. GTHO!

I love the mother daughter relationship. I love the places they chose to shoot they all are beautiful places. The story is catchy and I never got bored. It really flowed easily and in a wonderful way. The costumes are lovely!!! The lighting of all stages were astonishing!! Overall I was really well surprised about this serie and would recommend it to everyone.

Normally I choose my series and films looking at their imbd points at first but I am happy I didn’t trust its points for this time.16 out of 23 found this helpful. Was this review helpful?

Permalink 9 /10 Visually stunning, incredible story, great allegory It’s a slow burn, and by series end you have a greater understanding and appreciation for the nuances of the journey.

  • If you are open to a beautiful movie with a simple yet layered storyline, complex yet closed characters and more time devoted to the trivial than the action, then this is a seven episodes for you.
  • On the other hand if you’re looking for action and answers, if you’re the type of person who will pick holes in the plot and challenge the choices the characters make, then this isn’t the series for you.

The script is clumsy (I suspect that’s the English translation). Recommend turning off the dubbing and use the subtitles.10 out of 14 found this helpful. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. Permalink 9 /10 Strange relationship kept me watching The bizarre relationship between mom and daughter kept me watching.

It was the strangest combo. The daughter was super strange. Seriously naive. The mom was a rich lunatic. I know someone like that, so it was fascinating to see how they tossed money around. The chase was crazy. The mom thinking someone wants her daughter.well she was right. The dad was trifling. Both women are gorgeous.

I also like how it was filmed with the interviews and such. I do have to say, after the 2nd episode, I kept thinking is every other episode going to be similar with them checking in a hotel and blah blah blah. It was. But then the chase started which made it more interesting.

  • I wanted the girl to break free and say mama is crazy, but she didn’t, she was naive for too long.
  • I’m assuming if they do a season 2, she’ll find her dad.
  • What a bizarre relationship show, but oh so true with some rich families.
  • Sad, but true.10 out of 15 found this helpful.

Permalink 10 /10 Thriller lovers must watch! 10/10 Thriller lovers must watch! 10/10 Forget all the thrillers you’ve ever watched. I have never experienced such tension-filled moments in any production in my life. Turkish production is in the top 3. It ends in one breath, you ask why it’s over.

Those who do not like this series should question their movie tastes and watch those who put a ridiculous monster and market it as a thriller! In a word, it carries the tension to the bottom, the scenes are really impressive. I applaud the lead actors. You find yourself questioning life and the series for a long time.

Don’t look at the rating, those who gave low ratings to this show are giving it on purpose, there can’t be any other reason! Whoever gives a low score should go and watch a soap opera :). A creepy, intriguing, emotional, impressive, mysterious, intriguing, enjoyable production! Please continue the series.14 out of 22 found this helpful.

Permalink 5 /10 Poor writing, but great cinematography The clunky dialogue that other reviewers have mentioned may be due to poor translation from the Turkish, but there are too many scenarios where one is left thinking WTF? The police who are chasing our heroes appear to be complete idiots that emote all the time, but perhaps Turkish police really speak and behave like that, I don’t know.

Otherwise, the main protagonists are believable and engaging, and the scenery is spectacular. Nevertheless, I have so many questions about the plot- where did all the money come from and why aren’t they more careful how it’s spent, but I am only at episode five.22 out of 31 found this helpful.

If you do then you will find this series absolutely magical. Do not expect this to be a thriller or cop film – it is not, yet at the same time it eventually is of some sort.

I didn’t expect a feminist film from Turkey. I didn’t expect a scenic masterpiece, taking in Turkey and the Greek Islands. And after the first 2 episodes I certainly did not expect it to become a chase thriller, and, yet, it became just that and more. If this series was a film, it would be in the running to win Cannes and the Best Foreign film at the Oscars.

  • It is that good ! The two women stars have a fantastic chemistry and rarely have I seen a film or series where you feel strongly that the actors loved acting in that series.
  • The mother, Melisa Sözen, takes acting to a supreme level transferring every emotion through the screen straight at you.
  • She is superb and I will look out for her films in future.

Congratulations to the two directors, Umut Aral, and Gökçen Usta, for their superb direction. I leave you on one word which explains the last two episodes : Bambi.10 out of 17 found this helpful.

  • I will follow with interest the distribution of comments over time and the viewing rating.

It is worth analyzing the factors that led to the development of the character’s personality over time. VB.33 out of 58 found this helpful. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. Permalink 8 /10 Rare example of an Eco-feminst script from Turkiye I am so grateful to find an Eco-feminst production from Turkiye.

  1. I am fed up with the father and son conflicts and praising of patriarch in the Turkish media.
  2. This serial was a fresh breath to take although there is still some issues concerning patriarch manifested by police, guns, father’s black car etc.
  3. Though i would like to see more of how did the mother and daughter decorated their private rooms.

The rooms awaked the curiousity and hinted some mystery but at the end the rooms were plain and empty. Of course they could stay only for a short while in each hotel and had no chance to build a private space, yet i wish i could see more authenticity in the rooms.

  1. Intertextuality between such a simple kids Classic Bambi is stunning.

  5. Three ( 3 ) as a series, once you hear the daughters’ name, you can figure out what’s going to happen in the end.

It’s okay until the last 2 episodes – then it gets grotesque. Gory. FAR too gory for the situation. Way overdone – IMHO. There are some great clothes and some silly costumes, but that’s part of the show. It’s a psychological drama on all sorts of levels, with a solid travel show thrown in to keep our interest.

In Episode 7, I feel I felt duped. And it’s my very own fault! This series tells you what it is from beginning and it follows through – far too literally. Just read the book. And the title, and you have it all.4 out of 6 found this helpful. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. Permalink 9 /10 Masterpiece.

Melisa Sozen and Eylul Tumbar. 👏🏻👏🏻 The serie adapted from Perihan Magden’s novel of the same name attracts attention with its veteran cast. When I first started the serie, the story really affected me deeply. I finished the serie in one day by watching it non-stop.

  • It was a very enjoyable, very fluid serie.
  • Anyone who thinks if I shouldn’t watch it, should open it and watch it immediately, I don’t think they will ever regret it.
  • I like it so much that I don’t hold back from recommending it to all my friends.
  • I hope that Turkish productions will continue to be of such high quality and make themselves watched.

Netflix has done a very good job, congratulations to everyone who has contributed in the production. 👏🏻 50 out of 86 found this helpful. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. Permalink 10 /10 Excellent mystery This is an outstanding short series. A mother and daughter on the run.

Their relationship is quirky- and a somewhat disturbing at times. They live in their own little world. The plot is fresh and the background unfolds in flashbacks and witness testimony. These devices are very effective. The acting is excellent. The ending is faithful to the mythology they live by. Do not watch the dubbed version.

It’s clunky. Watch/listen to the original Turkish to get the true feel and scope of the script. After trying to watch so many formulaic series filled with so much bad plotting, trite dialogue, and expected cliches, this is a delight.22 out of 30 found this helpful.

  • Let me warn those who hasn’t watched it yet because I wish somebody has warned me before.

A weak and repetitive scenario, a story flow that a primary school child can think of, fake acting and nonsense that is incompatible with reality. The only good thing must be some good shootings of Turkish cities and hotels. I think Netflix productions should have a criterion, otherwise we will watch these and similar nonsense productions more often.25 out of 52 found this helpful.

Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. Permalink 9 /10 Absolutely brilliant This is a well-done and absolutely beautiful film. There is a great deal of suspense that keeps the audience on their toes. I thought the acting was quite good, and the music was well chosen to help to create moods of sadness, love, and suspense.

The acting was great, close-up angles and wide angles were well exhibited which helped to grip the audience’s attention and let the audience see what was happening around. There are several important themes in the episode. One of the most important themes is a mother’s love.

The film shows how a mother will go to great lengths to protect her child. The close-ups of the mother’s face, as well as her daughter’s help to convey both their thoughts and moods. As one views the first two episodes, so many thoughts race through the viewer’s mind that leaves you dying to view the other episodes.

The film also shows how one’s past can have a deep impact on one’s behavior. Also what these episodes show is how humans are flawed, insensitive, narcissistic, cruel, and mean. This gripping film is a must for all to see.14 out of 21 found this helpful.

Permalink 2 /10 I did give this a try So a mother and daughter are moving from hotel to hotel so not to be caught from the chasing police, you can argue and picks holes in the storyline because overall it does not make practical sense. I am a male writing this review and even I feel very uncomfortable about the representation of the lead actresses in this production.

For some reason the scriptwriters have two women that are chased by males, fraternized constantly by men, not one female police officer to be seen Anyway putting the political correctness aside, the only thing that makes this bearable is the acting of Melisa Sozen and Eylul Tumbar, the remaining cast just seem add ons and amateur.

Then suddenly the child is totally okay with that and like violence too? It’s giving kidnapper grooms victim honestly.

  3. Saw some very cool looking hotel locations though!! They kept saying that the Mother and Daughter were trying to stay low-profile, but everything the Mom does attracts attention to herself.

You would think since they knew they were being pursued, the writers would at least have them dye and cut their hair too. The pursuing Cops are so over-kill its really silly. The major scene in the one hotel with the 40+ cops with night-scopes with all the lights in a hotel lobby turned off was really dumb.

What hotel lobby have you ever been in with no lights on! Ha ha!! Could have been a good series if the writing was better and they did a better job of being less overly dramatic and more true to life as the plot-line of the Mom’s Family seems to hint at “mob connections” but that’s never explored (at least as far as I watched through Episode 5).20 out of 34 found this helpful.

What are we running from Netflix ending?

Do Bambi and her mother escape? – Fast forward to the final episode, and Bambi and her mother seem to have escaped to a “paradise hotel.” All is not well though, as Bambi is abused by the resident doctor while alone in the hotel while her mother is out. 2023 © Netflix // Netflix

Meanwhile, the police are getting closer to finding the two, so Bambi’s mother tells her to run and never look back.Bambi’s mum is then shot dead, leaving the young teenager alone in the world with nowhere to go.The final moments show Bambi escaping with the money the pair stole, leaving many viewers with their heads in hands about what the future holds for the young fugitive.

So. Many. Questions. Here’s hoping Netflix give the green light so we can actually find out what happens to Bambi. : Netflix’s Who Were We Running From ending explained

Who is the little girl in Who Are We Running from Netflix?

Her daughter Bambi is played by Eylül Tumbar, and it looks like Who Were We Running From? is her first credited acting role.

Who is Netflix controlled by?

Who owns Netflix in 2023? – Netflix is a publicly-traded company, so its shareholders own it. No one really “owns” a public company, as ownership is distributed among numerous individual and institutional investors. Among the latter, Vanguard Group Inc.

  • Has about 7.5% of the total outstanding shares, making it the largest institutional shareholder.
  • Vanguard Group Inc.
  • Is one of the largest asset management companies in the world.
  • As for the individual investors, is the largest one.
  • Hastings is a pivotal figure in the company’s history since he’s Netflix’s co-founder, former CEO, and current executive chairman.

The American entrepreneur owns about 1.7% of the stake, valued at over $2.4 billion.

Who is the person behind Netflix?

Launch as a mail-based rental business (1997–2006) – Marc Randolph, co-founder of Netflix and the first CEO of the company Reed Hastings, co-founder and the current chairman and CEO Netflix was founded by Marc Randolph and Reed Hastings on August 29, 1997, in Scotts Valley, California, Hastings, a computer scientist and mathematician, was a cofounder of Pure Software, which was acquired by Rational Software that year for $750 million, the then biggest acquisition in Silicon Valley history.

  1. Randolph had worked as a marketing director for Pure Software after Pure Atria acquired a company where Randolph worked.
  2. He was previously a co-founder of MicroWarehouse, a computer mail-order company as well as vice president of marketing for Borland,
  3. Hastings and Randolph came up with the idea for Netflix while carpooling between their homes in Santa Cruz, California, and Pure Atria’s headquarters in Sunnyvale.

Patty McCord, later head of Human Resources at Netflix, was also in the carpool group. Randolph admired Amazon and wanted to find a large category of portable items to sell over the Internet using a similar model. Hastings and Randolph considered and rejected selling and renting VHS as too expensive to stock and too delicate to ship.

When they heard about DVDs, first introduced in the United States in early 1998, they tested the concept of selling or renting DVDs by mail by mailing a compact disc to Hastings’s house in Santa Cruz. When the disc arrived intact, they decided to enter the $16 billion Home-video sales and rental industry.

Hastings is often quoted saying that he decided to start Netflix after being fined $40 at a Blockbuster store for being late to return a copy of Apollo 13, a claim since repudiated by Randolph. Hastings invested $2.5 million into Netflix from the sale of Pure Atria.

Netflix launched as the first DVD rental and sales website with 30 employees and 925 titles available—nearly all DVDs published. Randolph and Hastings met with Jeff Bezos, where Amazon offered to acquire Netflix for between $14 and $16 million. Fearing competition from Amazon, Randolph at first thought the offer was fair, but Hastings, who owned 70% of the company, turned it down on the plane ride home.

Initially, Netflix offered a per-rental model for each DVD but introduced a monthly subscription concept in September 1999. The per-rental model was dropped by early 2000, allowing the company to focus on the business model of flat-fee unlimited rentals without due dates, late fees, shipping and handling fees, or per-title rental fees. Opened Netflix rental envelope containing a DVD copy of Coach Carter (2005) DVD players were a popular gift for holiday sales in late 2001, and demand for DVD subscription services were “growing like crazy”, according to chief talent officer Patty McCord,

  • The company went public on May 29, 2002, selling 5.5 million shares of common stock at US$15.00 per share.
  • In 2003, Netflix was issued a patent by the U.S.
  • Patent & Trademark Office to cover its subscription rental service and several extensions.
  • Netflix posted its first profit in 2003, earning $6.5 million on revenues of $272 million; by 2004, profit had increased to $49 million on over $500 million in revenues.

In 2005, 35,000 different films were available, and Netflix shipped 1 million DVDs out every day. In 2004, Blockbuster introduced a DVD rental service, which not only allowed users to check out titles through online sites but allowed for them to return them at brick and-mortar stores.

By 2006, Blockbuster’s service reached two million users, and while trailing Netflix’s subscriber count, was drawing business away from Netflix. Netflix lowered fees in 2007. While it was an urban legend that Netflix ultimately “killed” Blockbuster in the DVD rental market, Blockbuster’s debt load and internal disagreements hurt the company.

On April 4, 2006, Netflix filed a patent infringement lawsuit in which it demanded a jury trial in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, alleging that Blockbuster ‘s online DVD rental subscription program violated two patents held by Netflix.

The first cause of action alleged Blockbuster’s infringement of copying the “dynamic queue” of DVDs available for each customer, Netflix’s method of using the ranked preferences in the queue to send DVDs to subscribers, and Netflix’s method permitting the queue to be updated and reordered. The second cause of action alleged infringement of the subscription rental service as well as Netflix’s methods of communication and delivery.

The companies settled their dispute on June 25, 2007; terms were not disclosed. On October 1, 2006, Netflix announced the Netflix Prize, $1,000,000 to the first developer of a video-recommendation algorithm that could beat its existing algorithm Cinematch, at predicting customer ratings by more than 10%.

  • On September 21, 2009, it awarded the $1,000,000 prize to team “BellKor’s Pragmatic Chaos.” Cinematch, launched in 2000, is a recommendation system that recommended movies to its users, many of which they might not ever had heard of before.
  • Through its division Red Envelope Entertainment, Netflix licensed and distributed independent films such as Born into Brothels and Sherrybaby,

In late 2006, Red Envelope Entertainment also expanded into producing original content with filmmakers such as John Waters, Netflix closed Red Envelope Entertainment in 2008.

Do you think the Netflix effect is real?

When’s the last time you saw a movie in theaters? How about the last time you watched a movie or show on Netflix? If you’re like most consumers, you’ve done the second thing more often. Even as movies bring in record amounts of money at the box office, Netflix grows its number of subscribers by around 10% a year and now has an estimated more than 59 million subscribers in the U.S.

alone. There’s no doubt Netflix is the definitive modern media company, and its impact is felt in a number of industries. It’s what experts call the Netflix Effect. The Netflix Effect is when a new series catapults an unknown actor to fame – overnight – a result of millions of people binge watching a show.

Changing How Consumers View Content Before Netflix, consumers went to the movies, rented VHS tapes or DVDs and watched whatever was on live TV. Now, consumers can stream content instantly to any device, anywhere. Netflix has changed how consumers access film and TV.

  1. They’re no longer tied to the TV and forced to sit through commercials.
  2. Instead of paying for cable plans, a growing number of Americans are cutting the cord and only using streaming services.
  3. In 2018, the number of people who cut the cord increased by nearly 33%, to 33 million people.
  4. At the same time, Netflix users are increasing.

Consumers prefer the flexibility of being able to watch what they want when they want to. One of the biggest factors for consumers deciding how to view content is the programming. Consumers don’t want to pay for content they won’t watch. Netflix spent a staggering $13 billion on content in 2018, with around 85% of that going to original shows.

Original content is what stands out to viewers. They can watch most network shows in multiple places, but they can only get original content straight from Netflix. The content creation side of the company seems to be hitting on all cylinders. The Netflix original movie Bird Box was watched by 45 million accounts its first weekend.

When translated to box office dollars, the movie would smash anything currently in theaters. Updating Internet Business Models Netflix was one of the first companies to use new internet technology to drive nearly its entire business model. The service started as a mail-order DVD company, but now just a sliver of its customers actually get their DVDs by mail.

Instead, Netflix relies on the internet to share its products with customers around the world. The online business model has also allowed Netflix to collect huge amounts of data on its customers. Netflix’s AI-powered algorithm creates personalized recommendations for each user based on their preferences, watch history, ratings and demographics.

The recommendations are usually incredibly accurate. According to Netflix, 80% of watched content comes from recommendations. In an age where brands across all industries are trying to predict what customers want next and create personalized recommendations, Netflix is setting the bar.

  1. Netflix also understands the need to constantly be innovating.
  2. The company has changed drastically from its original form of a DVD service.
  3. Looking for new technology and staying ahead of trends helps it define and disrupt the industry.
  4. Impacting Film And TV Industry Netflix affects many industries, but the greatest impact is felt in film and TV.

Netflix’s content is put right in front of customers for easy marketing. Netflix recently made a move into the independent film category, where traditional movies in theaters typically face an uphill battle being seen. Now, even small films can easily be seen on Netflix.

Netflix is also in direct competition with traditional TV. The company used to be a boost to traditional shows and would draw users to existing shows that were still airing on TV. But since 2013, Netflix has been creating its own original content that puts it in direct competition. Essentially, for every show Netflix creates, it’s taking away viewers from a traditional show on network TV.

After all, users can only watch so many things. Film and TV companies have to adjust their processes and content to keep up with Netflix. What is the Netflix Effect? It’s a move towards more convenient, personalized content. The success of Netflix shows that consumers want products that are easy to use and tailored to match their preferences.

Has Netflix ever made a good movie

Answered By: Miles Lopez Date: created: Oct 21 2023

22 Don’t Look Up (2021) – Netflix By 2021, the full extent of Netflix’s success and popularity with its original films was made apparent by the cast of the satirical comedy, Don’t Look Up, The film featured a cast that included, among others, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, and Timothée Chalamet.

It carried a serious political message dressed up in hilarious satire that poked fun at climate change deniers and society’s inaction to avert a coming crisis because no one takes it seriously. While it was a brilliant film with great performances from all its major stars, its subject, and the underlying political satire made it a hotly debated film that was either loved or hated depending on which side of the political divide critics fell on.

Whatever your take, it was still an enjoyable watch for its wit and smart take on how society has its lost its way in the digital age.

Has Netflix made anything good

Answered By: David Johnson Date: created: May 28 2023

Since 2013, Netflix has churned out a whopping amount of original content. They deliver quality as well as quantity: in 2021 alone, Netflix’s original programming won 44 Emmy Awards; more than any other production company. Netflix has had its fair share of duds, of course.

(See Real Rob and Emily in Paris ). But a handful of its shows, like BoJack Horseman and Black Mirror, have rightly earned their place in the pantheon of great TV. Netflix’s deep pockets mean they have been able to produce several large-scale shows starring big names that can more than compete with anything made by HBO or AMC.

The company’s most acclaimed shows span a range of genres, from sci-fi and comedy to historical drama and crime – IMDb users have made it easy to determine the top 10 Netflix series of all time.

Why did Bambi’s dad leave

Answered By: Christopher Evans Date: created: Nov 01 2023

So the reason why sounds so obvious and that is because he still has to be the prince of the forest. He has royal duties to attend to after Bambi is at a certain age he probably had to leave him to take care of his duties he couldn’t have done with Bambi around.

Is there a happy ending in run on

Answered By: Alan Hernandez Date: created: May 14 2023

7 /10 SECOND COUPLE SYNDROMEEEE Have u ever finished a drama cz u LOVED THE SECOND COUPLE? Hell yes! This drama absolutely. The casting could have been better cz he didn’t look like a college student. Ms Seo didn’t look as old as they wanted to portray.

  • She’s literally my new lady crush.
  • For some reason the lead couple’s chemistry didn’t appeal me.
  • The lead actor’s role was nicely developed and it was hilarious to see his reactions initially in the drama but he matured so much throughout the drama.
  • Episode 13 seemed best to me! That fight about Ms Seo’s fake birthday was very nicely put.

Each character boned with each other so nicely. Specially loved how a kdrama created a gay character. Last episode had a dialogue like Happy ending are just fantasy and illusion created by Civilization. That’s so true cz I was kind of hating how the almost didn’t give the second couple happy ending.

They kept the ending open. That’s the best part.30 out of 31 found this helpful. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. Permalink 7 /10 Gentle laid back series A runner takes down some bullies in the track team and gets disqualified so becomes a trainer instead. He falls for a subtitle writer / interpreter.

Not a lot happens. There is a rather out of place opposition from his father which is strange since he isn’t that big of a deal anyway. Her work on the film set is fairly interesting. This series is gentle and laid back. The characters are nice and level headed and hardly ever raise their voices and come across as being insipid at times.

The story is the opposite of melodramatic to the point of being dull in parts. Sometimes they even show mundane things like doing laundry and grocery shopping. Shin Se Kyung is sweet and demure and speaks English well when she interprets. The funniest part is when she fought with a foreign director. Im Si Wan looks angelic and kind.

The secondary couple an agent and an artist is a little unnecessary. And I don’t get their problem. If you want a simpler laid back series then this is okay.12 out of 13 found this helpful.

Permalink 9 /10 Not your usual kdrama Warning: Spoilers I really loved this show and it really should be watched by more people. The plot isn’t the main focus of this show but rather the growth of each and every one of the show’s characters from beginning to end.

  1. While it has few drama-usual elements such as the rich/political father being an absolute jerk to his family and only caring about his own success, the drama itself is anything but cliché, thanks to the majority of the characters and especially the leads and their journey of growth.
  2. The characters are going to surprise you more than once.

Another thing I loved is the fact that this show talks about important matters of life such as self-value, self-reflection, homosexuality, degradation and sexualization of females at their workplace, the social status of orphans and many more! Also, I’ve never seen such a beautiful ending in terms of the final scene having all characters on screen one last time no matter how big or small their role was and yet have it fit into the show’s storyline.

  1. Despite everything good this show has given me, I was bored during two or three scenes (mostly the Candy movie scenes – you’ll know when you watch it) and I’m a little disappointed they left loose ends.
  2. In the beginning of the show, Mijoo kept carrying a lighter that looks like a gun with her and at one point she literally had a panic attack because she thought she was being followed which made it seem like something had happened to her in her past.

But it is never further explained, even though that gun does play an important role in the show’s development and it is even mentioned in the final episode again. Another one of those loose ends is Seo Dannahs illness which is hinted at in the beginning as well.

We never learn what illness she has or why her half-brother seems to have the same illness. And then her father suddenly dies even though he was playing golf a few episodes prior. Maybe he was ill too? But we’ll never find out. Which is kind of sad because if you’re gonna give those things screen time then at least explain why it happened at some point.9 out of 9 found this helpful.

Siwan portraying a national athlete Ki Seon-gyeom stands up to bullying and violent practices between athletes and for that he is suspended from the team. Shin Se-kyung as an interpreter Oh Mi-joo meets Seon-gyeom as she is hired to translate for him. If course, they fall for each other. There are number of things i would like to highlight on this drama.

First the character of Ki Seon-gyeom, a perfect athlete, incredibly high sense for integrity and fair play, stands up and looks out for his younger fellows. Innocent and in a good way, dumb. Siwan’s voice is incredibly sweet, its tone and cadence was very pleasant to listen to.

Another thing worth mentioning was the love story of the supporting roles, Seo Dan-ah and Lee Young-hwa. I dare to say that the dynamic and chemistry between those 2 were stronger than betwen the main leads. and finally, in this drama you wont need to watch the annoying bickering and ridiculous characters that are present in every single kdrama, in Run on they are all more less normal 😉 Overall very sweet slow burning romance, very good performance by all actors.9 out of 9 found this helpful.

Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. Permalink 6 /10 Good Enough Korean Drama “Run On” is a healing slow-paced drama with a realistic view when it came to the romantic relationships. However, the drama’s story other than the romance was weak. They didn’t really expand on it, the family drama was rushly resolved, the sports theme that was pretty interesting at first with the scandal, was lukewarm and the side characters were added here and there to provide coverage of the gaps between the love stories.

The drama also lost its charm in the final episodes, with some boring scenes and a pretty slow pace. The product placement in this one was also ridiculous, with actual scenes being created for the sole purpose of the placement. Another minus of this drama was the fact that, except for the leading lady, the other characters felt pretentious at times, like they were trying hard to fit in the description of their personalities.

  1. Other than that, the drama had a nice atmosphere, with a slow tempo and some nice aesthetics.
  2. The female lead was an interesting character and the performances from everyone in the cast were pretty good.
  3. The love stories had a realistic aspect to them, as well, which was refreshing and unique.

  1. This is a 2021/2022 Romantic Sports Drama with 16, 60 Minute Episodes.
  2. Seon-gyeom (Im Si-wan) is a runner on the National Track and Field Team.
  3. He is the visual for the team but also a strong runner who has consistently scored second.
  4. Heading into retirement his goal is to finally take first place, but a bullying episode with a mentee leads him to put his career on the line for principle.

Some would argue he is able to do this as he grew up with priviledge but he suffers intense criticism and malice for his action from his family and from the sports world. Seon-gyeom grew up with a politician father and a famous actress mother and an older sister who is a pro golfer.

  • He was a latch key kid who did not get much social interaction and whose family was all about expectations and less about caring and love.
  • His older sister is his only ally against his father’s unreasonable expectations.
  • Oh Mi-joo (Shin Se-kyung) was an orphan who worked hard for every opportunity she ever had.

She is an interpreter for films and takes great pride in high quality subtitles to the extent she will watch each movie multiple times. Her and Seon-gyeom cross paths when she is hired to interpret for him as he attends several key sporting functions that could benefit his father’s political career.

  • The father hired her thinking, since she had such modest means, she would be easy to manipulate but what he did not count on was Mi-joo’s pride in her work and high ethical standards.
  • As the two get to know each other they discover they are more alike than different and love may change both their lives for the better.2nd Couple: Lee Yeong-hwa (Kang Tae-oh) is a young artist who displays his art works in a local coffee shop where Chaebol CEO, Seo Dan-ah (Choi Soo-young) grabs coffee.

She grew up in a severe family environment as her mother died early and her father had multiple relationships resulting in half and illigitimate siblings. Competion for inheritance is fierce in the household so the siblings do not develop loving relationships among themselves or with their father.

As a result Dan-ah is sarcastic, rude and has no social filter – she pushes most people away. She had a close relationship with Seon-gyeom when she managed his sports career and they even appeared on each other’s blind date lists as they both come from wealthy and elite backgrounds. The lively and engaging artist Yeong-hwa is able to crack through the frozen exteriors of both elites and befriend one and romance the other.

Yeong-hwa and his infallible good humor and persistence may be the only one able to break through Dan-ah’s icy exterior. Spoiler Alert** I mostly liked this series. I wish it had focused more on the running culture and was a bit disappointed that his career as a national athlete ended so early in the series.

  • The statement he made about bullying among athletes really fizzled out.
  • The coach who was allowing it continued to coach.
  • He was never exposed for enabling and actually condoning the behavior.
  • The bullies were sent off but it did not feel like they got the punishment they actually deserved.
  • In terms of exposing the issue – it did that – but I personally like seeing the good guys win.

The way it played out it was like don’t bother blowing the whistle as it will only ruin your career and no one will want to have you on their team. The bullies belonged in jail for what they did. I know it may have been more reality based that way but I like the positive outcome when I am watching fiction – I want the good/positive outcome.

Show the possibility and give people hope. I really liked the slice of life of a sub-title writer/editor. It was interesting to think about how much control they have over how things are said and how that can flavor the whole movie or whatever piece they are working on. I liked that her career took off and it was a result of her hard work and strong ethics.

I loved the ML and FL characters and they were so similar in so many ways. He was extremely socially awkward but she was a bit too. She had no filter when it came to voicing what she was thinking. I could see how they fit together in personality so nicely but also why they might bicker.

  1. I felt a bit irritated in this part where she got angry with him for being out all night and not telling her where he was.
  2. She was insecure he may have been with another woman and that he did not care enough about her to keep her informed.
  3. I understood she was upset he didn’t bother to text or call but when he apologized and was trying to make it up to her I thought she should have forgiven him.

I was also disappointed in the way she reacted when his father threatened her. The man could be terrifying no doubt but I wouldn’t hurt someone I loved because of it. I would find a way. When the mix up was cleared up though she remained angry with him until she needed something.

  1. She even commented that she was being bad for only making up with him because she needed something.
  2. The second couple had a very interesting dynamic.
  3. I understood her damage yet still thought she could be somewhat abusive to him.
  4. The ending was less than satisfying for me.
  5. It showed everyone back together but there was no type of permanence in any of the relationships.

Everyone was just dating. And given they had broken up so many times before it did not feel like a happy ending. My daughter who watched with me is in her late 20s and was perfectly happy with the end. But, in my early 50s, I am in the generation where marriage or at least engagement was the happy outcome.

So I think whether or not the ending will feel happy and wrapped up is somewhat generational. It was really good – kept me interested the whole time but just a few things that kept it from being perfect. Definitely worth watching for the great acting, insight on national athleticism, and sub title writers and the character development and chemistry between the leads was on point.3 out of 3 found this helpful.

Permalink 9 /10 Watch it! By far one of the best series I have ever seen. And I don’t exaggerate. And for a start, it has a happy ending for everyone. I highly recommend watching this drama! Run On portraits real emotions and everyday struggles when it comes to being in a relationship and how to manage yourself in the working life.

In real life we ask ourselves ‘is this the one?’ and ‘am I good enough?’, these exact questions are being asked by the characters. Obviously, you as a viewer already know the answer. Screaming ‘yes’ at your screen won’t help because the producers want you to understand their past and see their journey to self-love.

And let’s face it, answering those questions in real life isn’t easy either. One drama, two storylines. THIS MAY COINTAIN SOME SPOILERS! 1. Ki Seon-Gyeom is a national running team athlete. He is used by his wealthy father, a well-known politician, to help him achieve popularity and strong social status.

  • Be careful though, you really want to throw hands with the father.
  • Instead, punch a pillow and not your screen.
  • Then we have Oh Mi-Joo, an English and Korean translator.
  • She is asked to be the translator for Seon-Gyeom.
  • Trapped in his own world full of abuse by his father, Ki Seon-Gyeom manages to free himself from his father, and to transform himself into a lovely person capable of showing real emotions.

This is all because of Mi-Joo. A relationship seems inevitable. However, due to their pasts and Seon-Gyeom’s family, they both need time to understand each other and work on their own struggles before they can fully accept each other.2. Seo Dan-A, the CEO of a sports agency, comes across as an emotionless person.

  • She likes to do it her way.
  • But this doesn’t stop Lee-Yeong-Hwa, an art student, from falling in love with her.
  • Her curiosity about one of Yeong-Hwa’s painting leads to a rollercoaster ride of mixed feeling.
  • And in the end, she is !finally! able to accept her love for him.4 out of 4 found this helpful.

It took me 4+ episodes to get into the groove of the story, but once I got a feel for it, it was pretty good (though there are plenty of other Netflix KDramas which I personally found more appealing /enjoyable).

As an English speaker, the biggest barrier for me was actually the script. The plot itself was simple enough to understand, but the dialogue was a different matter. I got the impression that the wording was probably quite complex and clever in Korean, with lots of subtlety and nuance. However, as often happens with foreign films, the subtext which gives deeper meaning to the actual words was largely lost in translation.

On top that, there were (ironically) also many places where the subtitle wording, despite being technically accurate, felt stiff or awkward (IMO). I kept having to pause to make sure I had read them correctly. Aside from language issues, this film also features some characters with atypical personalities/backstories.

For viewers who are already struggling to keep up, this adds yet another layer of complexity to the viewing experience, since the attitudes /reactions of the main cast often fall outside the norm (at least initially), and are that much harder to understand. Taken together, these issues could make it difficult to engage with the characters and leave viewers feeling like they are missing something.

However, if you are willing to persist, things do gradually become clearer, and there is a fair bit that is fresh /unusual about this film. The story has a lot going on besides the central romance(s), and delves into many social issues, including bullying, family abuse, and misogyny, and is sprinkled with plentiful acknowledgment of the gay community.

  1. If these are meaningful subjects to you and you don’t mind having to read between the lines a fair bit, then this film may be perfect for you.
  2. ROMANCE RATING: * * * 6/10.
  3. While YSW & SSK did have a certain level of chemistry, it seemed more like a cozy blanket than a raging fire, and lacked any sort of sexual tension.

Personally I also might have wished for a bit more passion in the 3+ kiss scenes, but if you go for sweet and innocent rather than deep and intense, this should be just your cup of tea.5 out of 6 found this helpful. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote.

Ki Seon’s girlfriend, film translator, Oh Mi Joo, another very sweet but bratty Korean girl (why are they all so bratty!?), eager to progress with integrity in an unfair male world.

For English-speaking listeners it’s obvious Mi Joo struggles when trying to speak authentic English, so not the best casting as an interpreter. But it’s just a story, – right? – and an entertaining break for those wanting pure romance.14 out of 25 found this helpful.

Is Who are we running from a true story

Answered By: Dylan Rivera Date: created: Mar 28 2024

Netflix Paranoia and fear can make some people behave erratically. To believe that one is in constant danger makes forming long-lasting relationships with strangers tricky, and it also places a certain level of suspicion on all those around. Netflix’s latest book-to-television adaptation of “Who Were We Running From” is a Turkish movie that follows a character known only as Mother (Melisa Sozen) and her daughter, Bambi (Eylul Tumbar).

What was the first Netflix original movie

Answered By: Lucas Price Date: created: Jan 24 2023

The First Netflix Original Movie – Netflix Interestingly, production was first announced for Netflix’s Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon sequel, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, In 2014, TIME reported that the movie was in production and would be released to Netflix in August 2015, describing it as “the first of several feature movies it has in the pipeline.” However, things didn’t pan out this way, and this movie didn’t make it into the world until February 2016.

What actually became Netflix’s first original movie was Beasts of No Nation, directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga. After being screened at several film festivals, it was released to Netflix in October 2015, beating the Crouching Tiger sequel by a few months. Beasts of No Nation is a war-based drama that follows the tragic story of Agu, played by Abraham Attah, a child forced to join the army of a fictional West African country.

Despite its fictional location, the movie is dedicated to presenting a realistic portrait of war in all its gore. Attah is joined by Idris Elba, Emmanuel Affadzi, and Ama K. Abebrese in the cast. The movie is gritty and relentless in conveying the horrors of being a child soldier.

  • It presents us with both intimate, personal detail as well as lofty, grand views of these scenes, reminding the viewer that this might be one child’s story, but the impacts of war go far beyond the individual level.
  • Elba earned a BAFTA nomination for his impressive supporting performance here, in addition to a Golden Globe nomination and a SAG win.

Beasts of No Nation is an acclaimed and awarded movie with a lot to say, so it’s a shame that it often goes undersung as Netflix’s first original movie.
