Darkest Hour: or as I would call it “Gary Oldman’s Best Actor Oscar-winning movie”

The 90th Academy Award hasn’t take place until March 4th but as far as I’m concern, the best actor race is already a foregone conclusion after I watched THE DARKEST HOUR starring Gary Oldman. I wasn’t expecting much going into this movie because there had been a couple recent movies about Churchill. I was wondering … Continue reading

The Creepy sensation of watching The Killing Of A Sacred Deer

Some movie do not have any gore or jump-out-to-spook gimmick to effectively creep the devil out of you. The Killing Of A Sacred Deer is this type of movie.

The chilly reception for The Snowman is no fluke

The first question I had in my head when I walked out of the advance screening of The Snowman was ” What went wrong with this movie?”.

Goodbye Christopher Robin – The Origin story of Winnie The Pooh

A friend predicted that it will be a tear-jerker before I went to the advance screening of Goodbye Christopher Robin. I have to say that she was correct, but not in the reason that she predicted.

I was very young when the first movie came out and have not live in the western world long enough to understand the culture and nuance of that first movie. I remember walking out of … Continue reading

The Unknown Girl is a thriller-done-right, the French Cinema way.

What I always love about a well-made and understated French thriller is how much care the filmmakers place in preserving the realism of the scenes in the movie. The Unknown Girl is part of that noble tradition. The movie take it’s time to show the daily, mundane relate-able gestures in the main character’s  life so … Continue reading

IT, the new classic

I did not expect to like this movie as much as I do. This is a perfect example of a good movie. Good movie will connect with the audiences and transcend it’s own genre to become a favorite of moviegoers and dare I say, over time, categorized as a classic. I have never seen the … Continue reading

Um what?<br> What did I just watched? Mother! was to me, a brilliant piece of cinema mindscrew thrill-ride through a two-hours escapism, if you let it. It obviously provoke you to search a deeper meaning into the story and everyone come out of it with a different take of their own. I guess, based on … Continue reading

VILLAINESS – La Femme Nikita, Korea style!

Step aside Atomic Blonde, there is a new bad ass assassin in town. Starting with John Wick the trend of stuntmen helming action movies continue.
