    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…

    “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.

    Synchronic

    ★★★

    This has a really interesting premise, and how they built the mystery in the opening minutes is so damn effective. Then comes the impressive 8 mins oner and it just flows nicely, naturally. Also genuinely enjoying this especially on the first act, where everyone making deadpan jokes while maintaining their serious facial expressions. The directors were really successful on building our curiosity and developing the chemistry between the two main casts. Everything was smartly written and well directed on the…

    Satan's Slaves 2: Communion

    ★★★

    A sequel that is much bigger than the original, and I appreciated it as it tried to be wildly different : a whole thirteen story apartment haunted by ghosts (after this and the Raid, foreigner would think why people in Indonesia rather live in landed houses than on tall buildings). Also adore the production value : the cinematography here is looking brilliant - there are some homages to the influential ones and it clearly shows Joko’s wide range of library,…

    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…

    Eternals

    ★★★½

    Eternals is such a beautiful mess. It’s the one that might turn you off as we already familiarised with Marvel formula and expected to be the same old shit with all those non-stop fluid actions, instead you got a prolonged human drama with non-human characters but with humanly traits such as having love, hate, personal conflict, and also born as being diverse (which is an industry standard nowadays - not saying it’s a bad thing but it’s just felt like…
