The amazing “THE NILE HILTON INCIDENT”, a must see!!!

What made foreign movies great are the experience you reap from seeing through the eyes of the foreign filmmakers who are showing you their world the way it is, no candy coated, no “Hollywoodized”. To me, a bad foreign movies are the ones who “Hollywoodized” their movies trying to be as cool as their Hollywood-made … Continue reading

Planetarium: Never delivered on it’s premise.

Here’s a one-word review: TERRIBLE! here’s a two-words review: ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE! Now that we have gotten that out of the way, let me explain why this movie is terrible. Here’s the synopsis to this movie: Follows the journey of sisters who are believed to possess the supernatural ability to connect with ghosts. They cross paths … Continue reading

Annabelle: Creation – a great addition to the new wave of horror classics.

I am very impressed with the current crops of recent horror films that pick up the mantle left by their 70’s era predecessors and move the genre forward. We have had a drought of terrible horror movies made for the audiences with bad taste and craving torture porn with no real redeeming storytelling finesse. In … Continue reading

INGRID GOES WEST is an exercise of uncomfortability

The sensation of watching Ingrid Goes West is like watching two of your best friends arguing in front of a big crowd of people who know them intimately. It was cringeworthy throughout, like seeing a trainwreck happening in front of you over, and over again. Maybe that is the whole point to the movie. Aubrey … Continue reading

The very underrated WIND RIVER, ladies and gentlemen…

Nowadays it’s very hard to find a gem of a murder mystery thriller that’s original. When you see one that’s as good as Wind River and it does not get the attention and exposure it deserve, you want to spread the word far and wide so other people can share the experience. The critics currently … Continue reading

The Blackcoat’s Daughter or February?

As a horror super fan, The Blackcoat’s Daughter is quite a discovery. It’s one of those movies that is super atmospheric with a story line that gets darker as it progress to it’s inevitable ending. Kiernan Shipka and Emma Roberts were terrific in this movie. Who would’ve thunk it, two mainstream teen sweethearts can actually … 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

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

Dan DeHaan and His Cure For Wellness

I would watch anything that Gore Verbinski directed. He isĀ  a master in cinema visual styling. All his movie have a very moody and sleek look that is very pleasant to the eyes. This movie is no exception. I don’t think I would categorize this movie as horror because it is not a scary movie … Continue reading

John Wick, Chapter 2: The excitement continues.

It felt like not very long ago when I brought a friend of mine to a screening of the first John Wick in an uptown cinema. Not until we arrived had we realized that we were actually attending the world premier of the movie John Wick. We also found out, when we get our seat … Continue reading
