Movie Review – The Vigil (2019)

The Vigil (2019) review. An intensely creepy story based on the Jewish myth of the dybbuk. But don’t expect too much action from it.

Central Public Library | Home Tourist Photo Essay 12

Quick visit to the upper floors of the Central Public Library. Some of the most atmospheric views of downtown Singapore can be found here.

Asian Movie Review – Kabukicho Love Hotel (さよなら歌舞伎町)

Kabukicho Love Hotel movie review. A captivating look at the workings of Japanese love hotels, but with storylines too simplistic to be meaningful.

Movie Review – Pinocchio (2019)

Pinocchio (2019) review. An ultra-realistic, faithful retelling of the beloved story. One that is also at its best during the most bizarre moments.

Movie Review – The Empty Man

The Empty Man movie review. Feels and looks promising with its opening chapter, but eventually as hollow as its name.

Asian Movie Review – Soul Snatcher (赤狐书生)

Soul Snatcher (赤狐书生) review. This Chinese fantasy movie is snazzy and hi-tech, but let down by mediocre acting and an over-ambitious story.

Movie Review – The Croods: A New Age

The Croods: A New Age review. Hysterical, nonsensical, and indulgent. An utter delight to watch for both children and adults alike.

Movie Review – Synchronic

Synchronic movie review. Suspenseful in the first half, with a high-brow concept. But overall, rather lacking in tension and drama.

Movie Review – Freaky (2020)

Freaky (2020) movie review. This Blumhouse tribute to the slasher genre is hilarious, outrageously fun, and one helluva acting showcase for Vince Vaughn.

Movie Review – The Witches (2020)

The Witches (2020) review. Other than an enthusiastic performance by Anne Hathaway, this Dahl classic adaptation lacks any true magic.

Asian Movie Review – The Battle Wizard (天龍八部)

Bizarre is the word you’d keep thinking of when watching Shaw Brothers’ The Battle Wizard. The Battle Wizard (天龍八部) Synopsis Based on the first story arc...

Movie Review – Wonder Woman 1984

Wonder Woman 1984 review. A classic story about desire and consequences, spectacularly brought to life by top-notch acting and direction.

Movie Review – Monster Hunter

Monster Hunter movie review. Even for fans of the games, this mindless thrasher might well fall short of expectations.

Movie Review – Pixar’s Soul

Pixar’s soul movie review. A truly heartfelt examination of what it means to live, and a great way to end or start a year with.

Movie Review – It (2017)

It (2017) movie review. Like the book and tv series, this is all about Pennywise the Clown, and not about the story or surprises.

Movie Review – Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle movie review. It borders on overkill, but it’s also 141 minutes of hysterical, over-the-top indulgence.

Movie Review – Death Note (2017)

Death Note (2017) movie review. It works hard. But this remake still needs its name written in Ryuk's infamous Death Note.

Movie Review – Paddington 2

Paddington 2 movie review. What is it about a genial, talking bear with British manners that’s so delightful and irresistible?

Movie Review – Murder on the Orient Express (2017 Film)

Murder on the Orient Express (2017 Film) movie review. Modern, glitzy, with a wonderful Poirot. But low on the whodunit flavour.

Movie Review – Coco

Coco movie review. A visually stunning reminder that Pixar, despite ups and downs, is still the supreme master of animated storytelling.

Classic Horror Movie Review – Apt Pupil

Apt Pupil movie review. Even if you dislike the story changes, you can still enjoy this adaptation for its splendid acting.

Justice League (2017) movie review. It's overstuffed, but hey, it's still the first real big screen outing for the Superfriends!

Movie Review – The Lego Ninjago Movie

Movie review of The Lego Ninjago Movie. Lighthearted entertainment for kids. Probably monotonous and repetitive for adult viewers.

Movie Review – Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 movie review. For a Philip Dick fan like me, it's a befitting and worthy sequel to the 1982 philosophical masterpiece.

Movie Review – Jigsaw (2017 Movie)

Movie review of Jigsaw (2017 Movie). A homage to the best moment of the Saw franchise. A story utterly predictable for Saw and Jigsaw fans.

Movie Review – Baby Driver

Baby Driver movie review. Sleek and stylish, if impossibly romantic. It's a movie all about looking good and sounding great.
