It's 2027. Humanity's survival has come to the beginning of an end. War is everywhere. The world is completely hopeless. That is the world director Alfonso Cuaron depicted in his 2006 dystopian film Children of Men. Procreation has stopped for 18... Read the full review »

There are a few bits and pieces of comic gags, as well as crime-jumbled scenes, however, those aren't enough to fuel a paper-thin, soulless, and uninvolving buddy comedy, starring unfunny Bruce Willis and poor John Goodman. Read the full review »

Sleepless is a solid piece of disposable action-thriller that is fun and thrilling at all times. It's nothing more. Nothing less. Read the full review »

I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore successfully combines its dash of dark humor, pinch of gritty crime-thriller, and inclusion of social satire, that is melancholic on dialogue but comedic on execution. Read the full review »

Say what you wanna say, but I have a soft spot of movies featuring a cute love story, typical high school clichés, excessive tea cup parties, and most of all, Anne Hathaway. Read the full review »

Gifted (2017)

Gifted (2017)

6 / 10
A both simplistic and uplifting movie about a child prodigy who is impossible not to love, brought to life by real charmer Mckenna Grace, without hitting a lot from an emotional level and story perspective. Read the full review »

Love Actually is actually similar to love: it's both a lovely disaster and one crazy ride to remember. Read the full review »

Bushwick never really explores the ideas it presents, there's no chemistry between the two lead actors at all, and their characters are the very definition of stereotypical and throwaway. But if listing the flaws of this ridiculous movie is tiring... Read the full review »

Miss Sloane's tension comes partly from a set of incredible performances especially from Jessica Chastain who fuels this brilliant, infuriating and sarcastic character with some sort of gravitas and professionalism. Read the full review »

Beautiful to look at yet difficult to connect with, Ghost in the Shell is nowhere near adventurous and exciting as what it should be due to its lack of depth and soul, even if its ideas are intriguing. Read the full review »

It's easy to pinpoint flaws from Guardians of the Galaxy - style over substance, too much of distractingly silly parts, and an overabundance of paperthin, one-dimensional characters - that seemed to be stuffed in an extremely eye candy movie. Read the full review »

Chaplin benefits largely to the strong performances of its star-studded cast led by Robert Downey Jr., but it cannot save the film from it's inconsistent storytelling and very heavy-handed script. Read the full review »

La La Land is an absolute grand slam that guarantees Damien Chazelle as one of the most brilliant writer-directors working today. It serves not only as a toe-topping musical, but also as a homage to classic films and inspiring look of chasing one'... Read the full review »

Gladiator is not only a fascinating film of men fighting each other in a Roman arena. But it's more of an emotionally-compelling character study of complex historical figures we loved, and loved to hate. Read the full review »

The problem is, regardless of how charismatic and likeable our main protagonists are, there's always a familiar storyline and stereotypical villain wrapped around the hero-adventure formula. Read the full review »

If sports is considered as a genre in film, it would probably be my least favorite one. I just don't connect with them, especially with boxing movies. But in continuation of my Oscars tribute, I decided to watch the 2005 boxing film Million Dollar... Read the full review »

This review contains a heavy spoiler regarding its twist. You have been warned. I wasn't alive when The Usual Suspects was released. On 1995, many audiences considered this as the best mystery-crime-thriller of all time. In fact, this earned the... Read the full review »
