The Foreigner: Movie Review

The Foreigner was, all in all, an interesting action thriller. However, I felt that it was slightly imbalanced because the focus was tipped too much in favor of Pierce Brosnan. Perhaps it was a conscious decision of director Martin Campbell, who wanted to play it safe, given its Jackie’s first foray into this type of action, but the film didn’t really tell the story of The Foreigner and relegated him to a secondary character with the way things unfolded. The action part on the other hand, was heavily inclined towards Jackie’s character leaving nothing for Pierce who once kicked ass as the legendary Remington Steel and James Bond. This, I believe was a great disservice to the actors and the audience. … Read More The Foreigner: Movie Review

Justice League: Movie Review

I must admit that I was expecting something different from the trailer but at the end of the day, I felt that it was a good (if not great) first outing for the Justice League. There were conflicts among the characters with strong personalities clashing, as much as there were hits and misses throughout the film. But for a movie that endured as much as it did within the production and development schedule, to come up with a solid addition to the franchise was enough of an achievement.… Read More Justice League: Movie Review

Thor Ragnarok: Movie Review

All in all, “Thor: Ragnarok” had a fun premise. It was also the best out of the three Thor movies if you ask me. I loved that it had great cinematography, a cool soundtrack, a solid cast of characters which equated to a great and entertaining movie. Still, overall, I couldn’t get rid of the feeling that if “Thor: Ragnarok” just dialed down on the comedy a bit and put actually put some depth into the plot, it would have been epic. … Read More Thor Ragnarok: Movie Review

It (2017): Movie Review

Most of the film’s success, for me, lies in the casting. The team made sure to understand the characters before adding actors to the roster. As a matter of fact, almost none of these actors have even starred in major roles before this remake. It was definitely a major risk. Because the team completely understood what it wanted to do from the beginning with the great script from Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga and Gary Dauberman, it became free to explore its possibilities and in the end delivered on the fans’ high expectations — even more. … Read More It (2017): Movie Review

Strobe Edge Live Action: Movie Review

Even though Strobe Edge took its sweet time to reach its final outcome, by its end you feel so invested in the characters that you feel the same joy that they feel. And you feel like you too worked so hard for that happy ending that you deserve to be there at ringside to witness it. This love story took a lot of detours but it reached its final destination right where it began and it was — beautiful. … Read More Strobe Edge Live Action: Movie Review

Today’s Kira-Kun Live Action: Movie Review

I was expecting something really cute from a manga adaptation. But I got so much more when I watched Today’s Kira-kun. The movie made me feel like a crazy person, one minute grinning because of the pureness and innocence of Ninon and Kira’s young love, and the next bawling my eyes out because the reality of Kira’s condition rears its ugly head at the most inopportune times.… Read More Today’s Kira-Kun Live Action: Movie Review
