An enjoyable Korean monster film for its characters, action, and compelling CGI man-eating beast.
'The Predator' suffers from a clunky third act but makes up with impressive action and visuals.
'Gongjak' doesn't have the wow factor of typical spy movies but the performances and characterisations are worth the lengthy recount of Korea's contentious political saga.
'Peppermint' is Jennifer Garner’s action flick comeback in over a decade as a vengeful widow who packs a hell of a punch amid some impressive set pieces.

Kin (2018) – Review

A total misfire on its storytelling, characters, and execution, 'Kin' disappoints with an intriguing but badly fleshed out plot.
The only Hollywood movie with an all-Asian cast since 1993, 'Crazy Rich Asians' delivers in the rom-com aspect and is one of the most accurate Asian representations thus far on the international big screen.
Good ol’ action and popcorn entertainment for Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg fans if you can forgive the plot logic and character motivations.
Dubbed as “Jaws on steroids”, The Meg is a delight for shark-attack horror fans and anyone up for an unreal human-versus-monster fun time.
Summary: Adapted from a sci-fi teen novel series by Alexandra Bracken, and from the same producers behind Netflix’s hit The Stranger Things — The Darkest Minds depicts a dystopian future where kids with superpowers are suppressed for political motives.
Even the spectacular action, set pieces and fairly effective humour can’t make up for the incoherent mess of a narrative in Tsui Hark’s third instalment of the “Wuxia Sherlock Holmes” Detective Dee series.
Relish in the flashy gunfights and mounting suspense but forgive the illogical climax and conclusion — this movie is better enjoyed that way.
A heartwarming yet dark family drama that raises moral and emotional questions about parenting and adoption.
