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.
Director Genndy Tartakovsky returns with a third Hotel Transylvania movie, and as usual, it’s a delight for families who love a hilarious and heartwarming animated film to unwind.
Intense, effective, and chilling performances by a stellar cast centred on the South Korean drug underworld. Crime thriller buffs will love this cat-and-mouse undercover tale.
You would never have thought Rock-Paper-Scissors could be such a captivating game until you’ve watched 'Animal World' — there’s a Hunger Games slash Battle Royale twist to it.
'The Brits Are Coming' is the kind of movie that makes you facepalm at almost every scene, questioning why the stars even agreed to be part of any of it.
'The Big Day' is a bit more than a typical movie about a wedding gone wrong — expect family dynamics close to Singaporeans’ hearts and subtle yet effective Singaporean cultural references.
Brilliant in both execution and enjoyment, Incredibles 2 is worth the wait.
This ridiculously fantastic cast deserves better, but they make the film worth the watch.
Surprisingly brave and thoughtful as massive blockbusters go, though there are moments that will sorely test your patience.
