Not the Type of Detective Movie I Expect – Murder on the Orient Express Review

For a fair amount of times watching the advertisement of this movie, it got me really interested for a go.

After this bland 120 minutes, my instinct was proved wrong.

The directing really sucks. Basically, in the first half of the movie, many scenes looked so forced. How the victim died; how the detective entered the room full of suspects and announced the tragedy; and how the train manager (called Brook I suppose?) was so appalled there was a dead body in the cabin, etc. None of these sequences are natural, they all look like actors are trying their best to simulate a murder scene and react as “supposed to”. There didn’t seem like anything that is a genuine and normal reaction but all forced upon. ...READ MORE

We Were All Mad – Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb Review

This film is exceptionally great at all length for a Cold War satire film.

It tickles many nonsensical and ridiculous aspects of life during the Cold War time. The world was weird, and all crazy, at the time, but it was all true.

The humor and the satire of the film land on its aphorism, and what true cold to bone’s black humor is that you see it as ridiculous, but it ain’t no jokes/it is real. ...READ MORE

The New Return of the Old Cliche – Spider-man: Homecoming Review

It is completely fresh that this new Spider-man movie has brought new life to our typical Spider-man story.

As a reboot of the franchise, the film surprisingly didn’t follow the cliché of how Peter Parker becomes spider-man, but rather focusing on the aftermath of the Civil War and his life as a rookie Stark intern.

And this movie fits heavily into an American teenager’s life, which mainly includes school, love and family. And with the mercurial element of the vigilante Spider-man lifestyle, he loses his control over his life again and again. And Peter struggles to find a balance between his mundane life and the crime-fighter personality. ...READ MORE

Neganology

Negan fo life.

He’s one of the most badass and charismatic villains I have ever seen in media. And boy do he swell.

Negan represents dictatorship and terrorism. While under extreme circumstances, for example, living dead apocalypse, his method is the most efficient and powerful to actually bring people together and head towards a common goal.

Just admit it, democracy sucks while it’s unusual times. ...READ MORE

Egos Infighting, Horrors Realizing – Perfect Blue Review

Phenomenal. A truly amazing experience. 

It’s a bit of strange yet repelling to look at a masterpiece from Satoshi Kon. His editing and the methods used in Perfect Blue reminds me all of the memories back in the days I was young watching all the Japanese animes. I worshiped the animes at the time, I love the styles they present, even though they’re unripe compared to the nowadays standards. But, it’s mesmerizing, to simply look at it. ...READ MORE

Steven Spielberg Is a Legend, so Does Frank Abagnale Jr. – Catch Me If You Can Review

Steven Spielberg, Leonardo DiCaprio, these two talented men combined together make a symphony.

Catch Me If You Can, a biography drama film that is based on the legendary Frank Abagnale Junior, the renowned con master for his juvenile deeds/stunts.

I have learned something in the movie, which is: Man, with talents, and a good heart, you can never, never cage the man’s possibilities from extending himself beyond ordinary and merits. ...READ MORE

Fifty Shades of Messed Up – Fifty Shades of Grey Review

fifty shades of grey
Coz I’m fifty shades of fucked up. – Christian Grey, Fifty Shades of Grey 

‘Twas a movie that discusses sex and love made controversies back in two years. I first thought it was what it was of the explicit sex scenes that uphold it under the spotlight, but it is not. The movie talks lot more love than sex.

Intriguingly though, those who are surprised by the sex scene must be some kind of conservatives. I mean, you got the upfront porns to reach, such a great deal eh? ...READ MORE
