WATCH: The Boss(2016)-Unrated

Melissa McCarthy did it again! Just like the Spy (2015) that I thought would be a silly James Bond’s knock-off, but I ended up liking it, and in fact a lot. At the same time, I thought The Boss would be an over-the-top-ha-ha-ha comedy, but it turned out to be something I may watch again. Some scenes performed and lines delivered were […]

WATCH: The Intern(2015)

Fortunately this wasn’t  a copycat of that awful The Internship (2013)! well a bit: workplace for millennial. The Intern (2015) is a well-balanced chick flick that has its moments. Blessed with a strong cast and performances, this film was a pleasant surprise, and enjoyable to watch. Robert De Niro‘s Ben was so good that there was no trace […]

Movie Review: Hail, Ceasar!

If you feel nostalgic with old Hollywood, this may be the movie for you.  A fictional version of That’s Entertainment(1974) with montages: kaleidoscopic synchronized swimming and tap dancing sailors, that defined Hollywood in the 50s and 60s. And they are very well done. We also have the colossal cast for the making of Hail, Caesar! that takes […]

Movie Review: Hector and the Search for Happiness (2014)

This was rubbish. One would cringe at its stereotypical depictions of foreign cultures: high-price call girl, sweet potatoes, and beaches. Simon Pegg could not take his character seriously, cause he wanted Hector to be funny but serious. Obviously, it didn’t work. Rosamund Pike played Hector’s girlfriend, Clara. Unfortunately, Pegg and Pike didn’t transcend us to believe that they are a couple. At […]

Movie Review: Kingsman (2014)

Kingsman was one of those that most missed out, likely from fatigue of yet another YA spy movie: Agent Cody Banks(2003), Nancy Drew(2007),…or just being one more Young Adult film! It was also released at the height of awards season, where most were getting in line to see nominated films, no doubts. But not all is lost, thanks to […]

Movie Review: Trainwreck(2015)

Eject Amy Schumer to the stratosphere already, I mean acting in a film with her own script, seriously! Trainwreck(2015) had had major critics polished it off clean and shiny. Schumer’s orgasmic performance is to be reckoned with, even starlet, Oscar winner, Jennifer Lawrence wants to co-write their next film. When engrossed with the film, often I saw Lawrence in Schumer: Lawrence’s uncanny expressions at interviews. […]

Movie Review: Magic Mike XXL (2015)

If your man says, “let’s watch this…” Seriously, ask him why?! There is no way any straight guys will want to watch this film, however much he likes or loves you. Honestly, even gay men will likely pass on this one. It means, this is a 100% pure entertainment for ladies only. And it’s OK, […]
