'Kong: Skull Island' is a monster movie that doesn’t skimp on the monsters, a rousing adventure bolstered by its period setting and stellar cast.
Stately and intelligent as 'A Most Violent Year' may be, it can also be a somewhat disengaging experience.
As it stands, The Beauty Inside is a near-perfect blend of Hallyu Wave glitz on the one hand, and the more mellow, thought-provoking offerings of Korean auteurs like Park Chan-wook or Bong Joon-ho on the other.

The Big Short – Review

Bankers suck. This film rocks. Go see it right now.

Coco (2017) – Review

"Coco" pops off the screen in a blast of colour, humour and heart. Bring tissues.

Strange Magic – Review

Within the first minute, it’s clear nobody really was interested in doing anything new with the story, which is a shame given the technically-accomplished animation work from Lucasfilm Animation Singapore.
Not much of anything because it’s too much of everything, 'The Vanished Murderer' will truly leave you wondering where the mystery disappeared to.

Burnt – Review

t’s a “rise-fall-rise” narrative with few twists and additions to the formula, but if good-looking people and even better-looking food is what you’re after, 'Burnt' has got you covered.
'The Girl with All the Gifts' is sensitively performed and has enough stomach-turning viscera to appease gore-hounds, but is marred by a sluggish middle act and an unsatisfying ending.
There’s great warmth and authenticity in the performances here, but the initially-intriguing mystery seems to hit a dead end, with the feeling that a rich story has been suddenly truncated.
Instead of being risqué, action-packed and subversively funny, Baywatch sinks like a stone, even with several likeable cast members on board.
Cringe-worthy dialogue and blatantly exploitative sex scenes cripple Lang Tong’s effectiveness.
