HIATUS #1

Due to the completion of an obligatory matter, which I’d rather call it as thesis (a way better than calling it ‘skripsi’), which dues on November; Cinemas become a lesser priorities for me; therefore, reviews and updates in Sinekdoks will have to be set in a hiatus mode. However, I had watched some box office’s highlights before I decided to be in this circumstances; hence, some late reviews will be catching up in other months (still try to find the most excusable time for that).

For this, I, on behalf of Sinekdoks, sign off for temporary hiatus #1 (in case there will be other hiatuses someday). See you with a titled man soon 😉

SINEKDOKS’ TOP 7: ONE Vs. MANY

Film action selalu identik dengan perkelahian. But, IMO, perkelahian paling menarik adalah perkelahian 1 lawan banyak (a.k.a keroyokan). Entah si jagoan yang menang maupun gerombolan musuh yang menang– I just like ’em somehow!

Berikut ini perkelahian satu lawan banyak (alias one vs. many battle) favorit Sinekdoks. Bring it on! Well, there’s more. Click here!

5 Centimeters Per Second / 秒速5センチメートル / Byosoku 5 Senchimetoru (2007)

The fusion of visually mesmerizing pictures with beautiful details and emotion-driven plot to create a delighting cinema poetica to express grievous heartbreak.

“”I strongly felt that if I looked back now, she would look back as well…,” said Takaki.  Why?

R.I.P.D. (2013)

R.I.P.D sebenarnya bisa menjadi film yang sangat menghibur summer ini; bagaimana tidak? Judulnya saja sudah ‘nyeleneh’ Rest in Peace Department. Apalagi didukung dengan budget 130 juta dollar-nya, dan bintang kaliber beda generasi, Ryan Reynolds (yang sedang panas) dan Jeff Bridges, serta sutradara yang pernah menonjok dengan RED, Robert Schwentke. Dengan premis yang terasa seperti Men in Black dicampur Ghostbuster, atau lebih tepatnya Spawn dan Constantine, adaptasi komik Dark Horse dengan judul yang sama ini bisa saja jadi hit, tapi sayangnya nasib belum ke arah sana. Well, there’s more. Click here!
