Acknowledge it that the classic Child’s Play story about a doll possessed by an evil spirit brought in life by voodoo spell is a thirty-year-old horror story—older than most millennials. After spawning six sequels and popularizing Chucky as one of the most iconic horror villains, the franchise finally follows the step of other horror classics […]
Neil Marshall’s Hellboy is truer to the nature and style of the source materials compared to the versions it reboots; however, that doesn’t make it a better movie.
Review: Being lambasted with slimy, cynical criticism even ways before its official release might be a notorious achievement Ghostbusters reboot must atone. It all centers in Paul Feig’s decision to cast an all-female team as the new ghostbusters. Flood of sexist mockeries and Youtube dislikes crowned it as the most hated pre-screened film. Yet, rest assured, […]
Review Ghostbusters: Belum juga rilis, reboot Ghostbusters sudah dihujani lendir nyinyiran dahsyat dari netizen.

Genisys still makes a vast Terminator films although its time-travel narratives mostly undo the original wonder and its excessive nods to the predecessor makes it drown in nostalgia. James Cameron’s dark, future thriller, The Terminator, has aged, […]
“It was hard to know who was more crazy, me or everyone else?” asked Max. Infused with striking visuals and Oz-pera metal riffs, Fury Road was like a 3-minute progressive death metal anthem itself—with excessive drum solo and versatile guitar distortion. It was straight-forward, violent, but philosophically enticing.
They’re ninjas. They’re teenagers. They’re mutants. And they’re turtles. They’re lost in coherence of plots and depth of characters; as they bear lots of plot holes. But, they still have hyper-energy in humour and action. Another “guilty-pleasure” films, produced by another guilty-pleasure film.
It’s not about how the monsters devastate the world, it’s about how human works on such situation. It’s a further drawback to Godzilla’s original franchise.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes exhibits, at least, three kinds of virtuous lesson dealing with: reboot, mo-cap (or bluntly, performance capture), and summer blockbuster.
