This low-budget superhero movie looks good on the outside, but is mostly hot air when it comes to its story and characters.
'Vengeance of an Assassin' is impossible to take seriously but if you grew up on the low-budget 80s action movies of Cannon Films and similar studios, it is possible to enjoy.
"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.
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.
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.
Although not quite measuring up to the brilliance of the original films, fans of the franchise may still enjoy a trip down memory lane with this sequel, particularly with the return of Erika Toda and digitally-engineered cameos by original male leads Fujiwara and Matsuyama.
'The Lost City of Z' is lush, majestic and finely acted, but it lacks a rousing, viscerally exciting sense of propulsive adventure.
