Welsh director Gareth Evans – best known for The Raid – is the person behind Apostle, a period religious horror film starring Dan Stevens (of Legion fame).
We are a week away from the opening film of Scream Asia Film Festival. Here’s one I omitted from my must-see list – Hana.
Much to unpack about the latest remake of 1937’s A Star is Born. The story itself will be familiar even if one has never seen the original or its subsequent two remakes.
Warner Bros have released a 5-minute extended trailer for the upcoming Aquaman movie. And it rocks!!!
If you like your superheroes light and you are not too concerned about well-developed plots and characterisations, then Venom is the movie for you!
Once upon a time, Warner Bros ruled the superhero movie genre with its DC Comics lynchpin characters Superman and Batman.
A decade ago, Marvel Studios released its maiden production – Iron Man – and the world of movies have never been the same.
Review By Yong Shu Hoong
Watching Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey 50 years after its original release, I was surprised how well it has aged. True, some of the special effects may feel somewhat underwhelming by today’s standards, but none of it comes across slipshod, and there’s no denying how far ahead of its time this classic was in 1968.
Just when I thought I might have been spared from yet another lame adaptation of one of the best superhero comic book stories of all time.
My review of My Magic from a decade ago!
Before I get into this review, a caveat – I was involved in putting together the music of this film, so if you wanna take this with a pinch of salt, feel free.
Let’s sum up this 80s-channeling revenge shlock-horror flick – Mandy is a gory, bloody, surreal, LSD-fuelled heavy metal arthouse nightmare. And I mean that in the best way possible.
Korean monster movie Monstrum is a competent genre flick with an interesting plot somewhat spoiled by its own premise.
Continuing my rundown of the movies I am looking forward to at the upcoming Scream Asia Film Festival. Read Part 1.
As faithful readers would know, I effectively boycotted this seemingly pointless movie when it was released in cinemas, due to The Last Jedi‘s desecration of the Star Wars legacy. But to be fair, I decided to see for myself – so to speak – as the movie has just been released digitally.
Finally! A genre film festival in Singapore, we can call our very own!
Curated by local filmmaker Eric Khoo with South Korean film programmer Jongsuk Thomas Nam and organised by mm2 Entertainment, Scream Asia Film Festival promises to be exciting, ground-breaking and of course, terrifying!
The Predator is ostensibly a sequel to the first two Predator movies – referred to in passing in the movie – though for all intents and purposes, it is a soft reboot of the scifi-horror franchise.
As part of its 60th anniversary, the Singapore Film Society (SFS) has programmed a series of independent award winning documentary films between September to October as its core screenings in the lead up to the Singapore premiere of Sandi Tan’s award-winning SHIRKERS on 20 October.
Fans of Singapore film should not miss the various screenings of local film shorts and features in the month of September.
Faithful followers of my misadventures would have realised that I have stepped back from the Singapore music scene, for reasons previous enumerated.
Music films are all the rage now, it seems – and I do not mean musicals!
Buffalo Boys is helmed by first time director Mike Wiluan and jointly produced by Infinite Frameworks and Zhao Wei Films.
It’s finally here! Entertainment Weekly‘s exclusive first look at the upcoming highly anticipated Captain Marvel movie!
By and large, reboots of scifi movie franchises that began in the 80s, have not had a great track record.
Ari Aster’s debut feature Hereditary has been hailed as one of best new horror films in recent times. Does it justify all the praise that it has received?
Christopher Nolan’s game-changing Dark Knight is a decade old! Here’s my contemporaneous review.
It makes a whole lot of sense that the second film in Christopher Nolan’s reboot of the Batman franchise is called The Dark Knight. After all, Frank Miller’s Dark Knight Returns revived the moribund comic book industry (together with Watchmen) and challenged fans to take the super hero a bit more seriously than before.
