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 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

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

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

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
