All in all, The Menu was not a bad movie. It had an interesting premise and a creative approach to food and the artistry and passion involved in serving the perfect dish. And it was beautifully crafted. For me, it ticked all of the boxes for technicality but I felt that the general sense of cynicism made it hard to connect with the film, or any of its characters.
Kudos to the cast for bringing their A game to each role, big or small. Even the extras looked creepy and untrustworthy. Overall, a thumbs up for Out of Body. Hopefully, this serves as a lesson for everyone to listen to their instincts against dangerous situations. It was harrowing to watch Kelley helpless and alone, all while feeling trapped in the same situation the entire 15 minutes that the film was rolling too.

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.
All in all, I would definitely recommend Skyscraper to anyone who would listen to my opinion. Its awesome and entertaining, and I haven’t really felt this way about an action film since “Olympus Has Fallen.” That’s benchmarking for you.
All in all, Forgotten was a dark and sinister tale of two innocents who unwittingly become victims of a cruel twist of fate — two pure hearts who are tested by destiny until their paths once again cross. Forgotten was aptly named, and perfectly executed an elaborate plot that remained consistent from start to finish.
All in all, The Open House was a passable horror. Not particularly good or bad. Just passable. The problem was that it focused too much on the buildup but the reveal of the culprit did not really pay off. The script also turned the rest of the cast into cardboard characters that viewers have seen countless times before. Of its 1 hour and 34 minute run, only 20 minutes really held my interest and I’m not sure if that’s enough to set this film apart from the rest in its genre.
For me, Bad Genius was anything but genius. It was a copout to give the final credit to its lead character. While I appreciated the concept and the suspense, there was no justice and that I could not forgive.
