Spellbound: Korean Movie Review

Spellbound is a cute and entertaining tale delivered very well by a competent and charismatic cast. Its a rom-com dosed with just the right amount of horror to deliver a different concept and a fresh take on the genre.… Read More Spellbound: Korean Movie Review

Svaha: The Sixth Finger Movie Review

All in all, “Svaha: The Sixth Finger” was far from extraordinary. It was not scary. It was not thought-provoking. It was boring, but it did touch on the very real issue of religious fanaticism, which is present in all types of religion, left unchecked. It was a movie that technically did everything right but failed on the level that it did not evoke much of an impact given the material it covered. Sometimes, talking above an audience’s head takes its toll and it took its toll for this movie, big time. For me, at least.… Read More Svaha: The Sixth Finger Movie Review

Escape Room (2019): Movie Review

All in all, Escape Room is an experience all by itself. It leaves you no time to think about the repercussions before it serves you up a new problem that you feel compelled to solve at the same time as the players. It eliminates characters in lightning fast fashion with no mercy and pure accuracy.  This was the film’s bane, as well as its boon.

Velvet Buzzsaw: Movie Review

All in all, I very much liked Velvet Buzzsaw and thought the ending was an excellent touch to imply a continued horror and also close the chapter for this set of characters who were so blinded by ego that they failed to see the big picture (pun intended).

Chills. … Read More Velvet Buzzsaw: Movie Review

#Netflix Kingdom: Korean Series Review

All in all, I would consider Kingdom to be one of Korea’s finest saeguk dramas that can rival the suspense and intensity of HBO’s Game of Thrones. By the first season’s end, it had Battle of Castle Black feels which only fueled one’s desire to see what happens next when the second season opens. Too bad filming will only begin next month and fans will have to wait for another few months before we could binge on another epic season. I for one, could not wait to see if my conspiracy theories are correct. One word for the entire thing — brilliant, even though it ended on a cliffhanger. I could not think of more superlatives for this series. Seriously. … Read More #Netflix Kingdom: Korean Series Review
