Review: Spotlight (contains spoiler)

From the creator of last years worst film: “The Cobbler” comes this years best: “Spotlight”. Spotlight is an incredible, powerful film. While other films dazzled you with special effects and incredible cinematography, Spotlight was simple, unadorned storytelling at its finest. No romantic subplot, no crazy characters, no over-dramatization. If it takes a village to raise […]

Review: Zootopia

I burst out laughing when I saw the first sloth trailer in theater couple weeks ago, that shit was dope as hell! I personally think the voices match their characters very well and makes me excited for this movie. What surprises me after watching the movie is how dark this film it was and how […]

Review: Gods of Egypt

First of all, I’m cheap, okay. It has ancient civilization/mythology background, gods fight gods with fancy suits, and Gerard Butler, so I’m sold. (WHAT?!)

Collective Invention adalah sebuah film satir besutan Kwon Oh Kwang, dibintangi oleh Lee Kwang Soo sebagai […]

I have father complex and the story of old guy that lose their mojo then have to keep up with younger generation with all technologies pretty much hit me through my heart. I ended up enjoyed The Intern just like I imagine. Hathaway was wonderful and endearing […]

Review: Everest

*Note: Review ini ditulis oleh seorang kutu buku, bukan pencinta pendakian. There is competition between us and the mountain, and the last word always belongs to the mountain. Nyaris semua pendaki ingin mencicipi puncak Everest, gunung tertinggi di Bumi. The most impossible one. Gunung yang baru bisa ditaklukkan dengan selamat pada tahun 1953, setelah ekspedisi […]
