Insidious: The Last Key – first horror feature of 2018

I went into this latest Insidious installment with much trepidation in terms of the scare factors because if past experience had attested, by the fourth installment of any movie, the quality of story-line and scariness had ran out of steam. Case in point: The Saw franchise.  Well, I have to say this movie moves like … Continue reading

Hostiles – the top notch Western movie that’s long overdue

They don’t make good Western movie like they used to.

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.

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. A high brow, Exorcise-type of movie that take itself very seriously and you couldn’t help but react in kind. No matter that the story is quite … Continue reading

Happy Death Day – A fun spin on a familiar genre

I admit it, the trailer with the 50 Cent rap got me wanting to watch this movie despite the played-out, groundhog day storyline. The second reason for me to watch this movie is the lead, Jessica Rothe. U need someone who is magnetic and charismatic to carry this movie because she is in every single … Continue reading

Blade Runner 2049 – A more-than-worthy successor.

Full disclosure, unlike most sci-fi enthusiasts, I am not a big fan of the first Blade Runner. Let me explain.

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

Friend Request will make u think twice before adding someone new in your social circle

I was not sure if I should watch this movie because I did not heard much about this before it’s released in cinemas. Since I am running out of things to watch in current cinema offering and have some time to spare, I watched it in my local cinema with comfy reclining seat. The late … 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
