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 […]

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 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 is  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

The Ring legacy continues, or not…

When I first saw the not very exciting trailer to 2017 horror movie Rings, a thought came into my mind. Is this necessary? The first two remake of the Japanese horror starring Naomi Watts were admittedly, a worthy American versions of the Japanese Rings legacy. Thanks to Naomi Watts as an excellent actress, who made … Continue reading

The light hearted but action-heavy sequel to the XXX franchise is entertaining…, if you don’t take it seriously.

If you take the implausibly ridiculous opening sequences of all the James Bond movies and line them up together to make them into a 107 minute film, you will get XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE. It’s not to say the movie is not entertaining. The Return Of Xander Cage is a bonafide action comedy  … Continue reading

Blown By Split

Okay, without giving away any spoiler to SPLIT, the new M Night Shyamalan’s new movie, how freaking awesome was that last five second of the movie? Without revealing anything, I have to clarify my statement about the ending. I was watching SPLIT with the general audiences who varies between the ones who follow M Night’s … Continue reading
