The Survivalist – taut and never boring.

In order to keep me awake during a midnight screening, a movie has to pique my curiosity throughout it’s entire run time. The Survivalist did just that. There are only three characters in pretty much the entire movie and the script has to be constructed in such a way to keep the story going and […]

SLEIGHT is a sly no budget sleigh of hand.

I went to see Sleight strictly based on the 36 seconds trailer teaser and the promise of  “Ironman cross with Chronicle” and I have to say, for a no budget movie, this little film manage to capture my attention all the way through until the end when it promise something bigger and the screen cut … Continue reading

Free Fire – Reservoir Dogs it is not.

I went in to this movie fully aware that the entire movie took place in a room, much like Reservoir Dogs. However, the story is not nearly as interesting or as suspenseful as that Tarantino’s classic. By the second half of the movie, all the actors were crawling through the remaining part of the movie. … Continue reading

The Realistic Depiction of The Lost City of Z

I was enticed by The Lost City of Z and what the movie promised in the trailer. Having never read the book or know anything about explorer Colonel Percival Fawcett, I don’t know how this movie is going to end and was expecting a scene of grandeur revelation  much like the Indiana Jones movie. Boy … Continue reading

The Belko Experiment: a short but sweet experience.

If you have seen the preview to this movie, you already know what to expect from this movie. However, the director still have a few tricks up his sleeve to toy with the audience expectations on the characters in movies like this; which made it thrilling fun to watch.  Tony Goldwyn is now the official … Continue reading

Raw, if you dare.

Not since I went to the first screening of another French movie with one name moniker INSIDE had I saw audiences ran out of cinema during the movie until I went to watch RAW last weekend. I mean people, mostly women and older couples, literally picked up their belonging and bolt to the exit. Me … Continue reading

Kristen’s Personal Shopper

This second collaboration between Kristen Stewart and director Olivier Assayas, who also wrote the screenplay, is pure cinema escapism. It is kinda hard to categorize a movie like this because it blend seamlessly the every day drama of the life of a personal shopper to a famous celeb with the her obsession in trying to … Continue reading

Good bye, Wolverine

It’s amazing to think that Hugh Jackman has taken on the role of Wolverine for 17 years. I knew nothing about the X men universe when I watched the first X men. I still do not know much about that universe because I stopped reading comic books since I was 18. That did not diminish … Continue reading

Jordan Peele’s GET OUT lives up to its hype.

Okay, I initially scoffed at the preview of GET OUT because it was shown so many times during previews in movies I watched. I blew off every single advance screening of GET OUT that I was invited to because I refused to stay in line to watch a movie that I was not very interested … Continue reading

A Dog’s Purpose

It’s too bad that the TMZ-leaked video controversy is casting a negative cloud on A Dog’s Purpose because myself as a dog lover, think this movie is a must watch for all who at some point in their lives own a dog. I dare you not to shed any tear on the second half of … Continue reading
