This low-budget superhero movie looks good on the outside, but is mostly hot air when it comes to its story and characters.
Boasting a mix of frenzied thrills and social commentary, 'Train to Busan' is very much alive on arrival.
Boasting a star-studded cast, a dark and intriguing plot, and a director-actor brother duo, "Gringo" starts off with a promising set-up only to lose its steam as the film progresses, leaving a bad aftertaste.
A bizarre, complex, and provocative alien film that is more visually stunning than gory and violent as others before it, "Annihilation" explores deeper and darker themes than just our natural responses to otherness.
Overly ambitious in presenting too many perspectives, the film lacks a clear direction for both the characters and the audience, wasting a promising opening and convincing performances.
"The Cured" is a dark and depressing zombie film about guilt and politics, presented in rather obvious metaphors that are hyper-relevant in the current times of divisive ideologies.
Stunning visuals, astounding scores, and flawless performances can’t compensate for an overly ambitious film trying to mix a love story with terrorism and oceanography.
A Korean comedy unlike any before it, Intimate Strangers is an emotional rollercoaster ride that can make you laugh in a moment and cry in the next heartbeat.
Even the Best Actor award-winning duo of Nicholas Tse and Sean Lau can't save this film from its doom of having a potentially brilliant theme brought to waste under the debut direction of Ken Wu.
An enjoyable Korean monster film for its characters, action, and compelling CGI man-eating beast.
A period zombie film derivative of Train To Busan but featuring handsome Hanbok-clad superstars in flashy action sequences.
American teenager is transported to ancient China, saves the day, story goes just how you’d expect. Keep this gate closed.
