Noir: Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

WATCH! A somber and morbid film with eerie and pungent scores that suck you into a universe of despondent existence. Not only does Blade Runner 2049 seamlessly traverse from the original Blade Runner 2012, it also exacerbates the grimness of an ageing world where the city is only illuminated by gliding police aero-mobiles and colossal 3D and […]

Null & Void: Alien: Covenant (2017)

SKIP source:IMDb Such a let down from the previous post-modern existential film Prometheus! Perhaps, Ridley Scott wants to make this an amphibious Alien film: for its die-hard fans, and for a new generation of audiences. On the one hand he attracts fans waiting for a sequel to Prometheus, and on the other’s those seeing this film franchise […]

Movie Review: Morgan (2016)

SKIP! Morgan (2016) was a failed project suffering the same ill-fate of the defunct L6 project in the film. The denouement ascertained my conclusion that this was nothing but a mishmash sci-fi film with no horrors, no thrills, and no mysteries. Instead, it was filled with morsels of other films in theme and actions. One of such films is […]

SKIP:Hunger Games:Mockingjay(Part II) 2015

First, I had no recollection of how part I ended, and secondly, with so many  YA franchises’ dystopian worlds, which I didn’t really care; I just wanted to watch how this one ended: have faith; Christian’s. In other words, heroic idealism as martyrdom, divine inspired heroism as Joan of Arc’s, or mere 21st century equality as […]

WATCH: Movie Review: Batman v Superman-Dawn of Justice (2016)

  Contains spoilers OK, enough! Go see it for yourself, and don’t trust others’ opinions. I almost missed out on a pretty good 3D film,  visually, story-wise, and performances, cause I had read and watched (youtube) so many negative things before I went today. To me a good film creates discourse, and I think it has […]

Movie Review: Supernova (2000)

In an era where we always crave for the newest things, we may have missed really good (worth watching) films that are simply oblivious to us. The one I found in my DVD stack was Supernova (2000).  Why is it more enjoyable to watch it now? – The actors. All of them are still in the industry, which […]

Movie Review: Interstellar(2014)

(Updated 01/04/2016)At the beginning, I thought it would be another visual-oriented space futuristic film, like last year’s Gravity(2013), heavy on technical visual effects, and short on dialogues. I was wrong. There were more dialogues and science lessons than anything else: physics, quantum mechanics, singularity, black hole, worm hole… I was glad I watched the whole […]
