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.
After the dark and heavy Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp delivers light-hearted comedic superhero action to MCU fans.
As always, I place great important on well-crafted plot and characterisation when reviewing movies. While A Quiet Place has an intriguing premise, the story, unfortunately is illogical.
M. Night Shyamalan’s unlikely sequel to his classic 2000 superhuman film Unbreakable arrives in cinemas in January 2019.
Fourteen years! That’s how long it took director Brad Bird to put together the sequel to Pixar’s animated foray into the superhero genre, The Incredibles.
I must confess that I was pleasantly surprised by this sequel to the billion dollar hit Jurassic World (2015), which I found to be chronically underwhelming. Read my review here.
It has been 11 years after director Steven Soderbergh wrapped up his trilogy of heist films that began with Ocean’s 11 (2001) and ended with Ocean’s 13 (2007).
Before the release of Star Wars (never “A New Hope”) in 1977, there had only been a couple of successful movie franchises viz. James Bond and Planet of the Apes.
After surprising most observers with a worldwide box office of $783 million (against a $58 million budget), it was inevitable that a Deadpool sequel would be produced and fast – within two years!
Ironically, the groundwork for the enormous success of Avengers : Infinity War was laid almost EIGHTY years ago by Marvel’s main comic book rival DC Comics in Justice Society of America.
To be honest I had reservations about Infinity War.
