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 […]

Movie Review: Predestination (2014)

Time travel movie? Not so fast, it was more complex than that. It will require you accepting the premises: Intersex, time travel and second chance love. The story may have come full circle, but I wonder if the basis of human biology used in the film would be possible? Otherwise, we will be running in circle. As […]
