Recommended? Absolutely. It’s not as utterly wonderful as the first film - the script is a little clunkier and the nostalgia factor replaced with a world-wide-web-weary cynicism. But the big, beating heart embedded in this story is a true delight. The Princesses alone will be worth the price of your ticket.
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.
A rare crime mystery with little to no action, but bolstered by compelling performances and engaging storytelling on the dark sides of law enforcement and unsolved murders.
The Low-Down: You’d be forgiven for thinking that Bumblebee is yet another shameless cash-grab by the powers-that-be behind the Transformers franchise. There isn’t much incentive to improve, after all: money keeps pouring in at the box office (especially in China), even as the films - and scripts...
Fans, no matter how few, will cheer for Arthur.
Buckle up for an exhilarating ride of shocking revelations and cathartic dialogue nailed by phenomenal performances.
'Halloween' is a perfect reboot and tribute of Carpenter’s 1978 original, and a slasher film that relies more on genuine suspense than jump-scares.
Twists, cat-and-mouse games, and gripping action set pieces in this dragon tattoo sequel are the supports to Emmy Award winner Claire Foy’s spectacular performance as Lisbeth Salander.
More of a set up for the franchise’s next three sequels with minimal fantasy and magic, though the wizarding spectacle, lore, and familiar and new characters might be worth the watch.
A period zombie film derivative of Train To Busan but featuring handsome Hanbok-clad superstars in flashy action sequences.
The Low-Down: Swing Kids is South Korean hitmaker Kang Hyeong-cheol’s new film set during the 1950s Korean War in Geoje POW Camp with a Step Up twist to it. It’s a film about ideologies and how dogmatism and otherness can lead to unnecessary bloodshed, something seemingly of the past yet...
Rami Malek’s portrayal of Freddie Mercury in this Queen biopic is so compelling he knocks the other members (and the movie itself) off the stage.
