‘Welcome to the Jungle’ is a lighter and more carefree Jumanji, even compared to the predecessor and Zathura.
Review: The LEGO Ninjago Movie unfolds how the exhilarating idea of presenting a pop-culture-laden animation based on brick toys could falter quickly. It’s only been three years since Chris Miller and Phil Lord first spawned The LEGO Movie in 2014; but, this third film in LEGO franchise shows that the formula starts getting worn off. It Read more
Review: Imperceptibly, it’s been 17 years since then-relatively-unknown Oz actor, Hugh Jackman, was casted as Wolverine in Bryan Singer’s X-Men. The character’s popularity among fans and Jackman’s nuanced performance have made Wolverine more popular to the extent that this character has become the backbone of X-Men cinematic universe making a trinity with Professor Xavier and Read more
Review: After hitchhiking and helping to save the day in The LEGO Movie (2014), Will Arnett’s self-obsessed Batman finally gets promoted to his own spotlight as the lead role. In his solo, brick-world spin-off, The LEGO Batman Movie, Batman is the feeling-less, insensitive, heavy metal and beat box loving, lone vigilante of more-vibrant-and-frenetic-than-Tim-Burton’s Gotham. However, he’s Read more

Review: Expanded from an encyclopaedia of the same title and penned to screenplay by the only J.K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is surprisingly a fun ride to American non-pretentious wizard world, which goes much more muggle-friendly than its British counterparts in Harry Potter series. Set in the same universe in which Read more
There was a tale about a father who goes voyaging across the ocean only to find his missing son; that moving tale is sweetly narrated by Pixar into Finding Nemo (2003). It was a story of parental bond, specifically a father-son bond; however, the show-stealer was apparently not the main characters. It was instead a Read more
Pernah ada kisah luar biasa tentang seorang ayah yang berpetualang mencari anaknya yang hilang sampai ke ujung samudera; kisah itu dituturkan dengan manis oleh Pixar melalui mahakaryanya, Finding Nemo (2003). Kisah itu memang tentang parental bond yang menyentuh; namun, bintang kisah itu justru bukanlah tokoh utamanya, melainkan seorang (or seekor) sidekick: seekor ikan biru pelupa Read more
Review: Similar to The Force Awakens, one doesn’t have to be an adept viewer of Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky saga to love Ryan Coogler’s Creed. Yet, those who have known ‘The Italian Stallion’ might find Creed familiarly intriguing since it feels nostalgic and fresh at once. While Rocky Balboa (2009) gives clear-cut indication that Rocky’s tenure Read more
Not even half as fun and as scary as The Conjuring. Annabelle doesn’t even focus on the titular doll—just a funny over-hyped spin-off that benefits from the predecessor.
