    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    ★★★★½

    It's been there done that kind of story, but you will also get :

    - super slick animations
    - neat dysfunctional family story; with focusing on the child - father relationship that is my very weakness
    - lovable characters;
    - relatable main character; I was an art school student who always get complaint about my seems-alike no future, especially growing in third-world country.
    - dad that obsessed on fixing everything, but not his family, although he’s actually trying.
    - super…

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★★

    “There's an idea that hell is other people. My idea is that it might be repetition.” ― Stephen King.


    Look, I wasn’t planning on making any reviews for couple of days but holy shit wtf I just watched, this movie blown me away I couldn’t hold my urge to spit some words on it. It’s the one that hyped by many people, and after I’ve seen it I can understand why. The Lighthouse achieved the heights that other couldn’t grasp,…

    Quarantine Tales

    ★★★½

    Quarantine Tales is an interesting Indonesian omnibus consisted of 5 short stories that took spin on covid experiences, each sequence is totally different and directed by potential directors that I could feel can be the new wave of great directors from Indonesia. So if let’s say the common denominator of Black Mirror is technology, Quarantine Tales with its covid thematic plays around the ideas of isolation, protocol, society, family, distance, social media, etc, taking them in several unique directions; there’s satire, crime…

    Hunter Hunter

    ★★★

    Time for some smaller-scale thriller madness.

    Hunter Hunter tells a story about hunting/ being hunted vicious cycle of a secluded fur-trappers family, a wandering husband, a mean wolf, negligent forest rangers and a mysterious stranger. The baseline of this plot is somewhat potential, I feel like if someone else with much more flair and vision took the direction, this could be something else. What we’ve got here is that a rather boring filmmaking, visually - emotionally lacking (poor lighting, uninspired camerawork,…

    Mortal Kombat

    ★★

    Watched this in local cinema because of the earlier release date (again) in my residing country, Malaysia.

    Firstly, need to let you know that I’m a huge fan of the game. My life was not as the same again since I played the first game in SEGA genesis when I was a kid, and got shocked til we pissed our pants together with my brother when we discovered fatality by accident for the first time. Mortal Kombat (especially the 2nd…

  • Ad Astra

    Ad Astra

    ★★★★

    Watching this after I watched a Youtube video of Chris Hadfield reviewing space movies. It’s interesting from his viewpoint of all these movies, most are debunking some stuff that realistically could be happen in the space, or not. Ad Astra is one of his subject matter. It might be a story that’s still far out there for current technology and humanity but how they presented it, is really interesting as in blending in the current and near future tech to…
