    Something In Between

    ★★★

    How an insane scoring! Yes, it is that good. The OSTs especially the ones sung by Rossa led Something in Between to its great potential as a teen movie. With unfamiliar plot unlike the other Indonesian teen movies, it indicated how the director want to start the genre anew despite the rough execution and talent selection. Junior sure has the skill and the look, but our feeling watching him as high school chick remained uneasy. However Nichol seemed to carry…

  • Pandora

    Pandora

    ★★½

    Pandora somewhat offered more on mindful characters' development than the over all condition of the nuclear blast. So, this mirrored Korean melodrama the finest as it captured the heroic moments like no other. In spite of the fact, no significant dynamics of plots were performed here for such disaster movie that people's expectation on social or environmental issues could have been catered in 2 hours long of a movie.

    (heroes are real/5)

  • The Chase

    The Chase

    ★★

    Despite The Chase being obvious, the script is well written that it won't let you off guard to the ending. Again, Sung Dong-il never fails to amaze with his outstanding performance. He captures the detective with perfect interpretation. It's just that there were scenes that feel rather slow yet unnecessary and better cut. However, this movie simply tells that what's being seen isn't always what's supposed to mean.

    (old but gold/5)

    Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel

    ★★

    Crime Scene: The Vanishing at Cecil Hotel was all helpful to digest especially in the talk of Skid Row history, but not until web sleuths were getting spotlights as if unnecessary details would ever lean towards better investigation in near future. This docuseries sure highlights potential conspiracies for numbers but that was kinda disrespectful for the late Elisa and her family. Or sometimes, it made you skeptical on whether they beg for 'failure' in order to be requested for another…

    Layla Majnun

    ★★★

    Layla Majnun is a gateway to process how life is indeed an ugly truth. This movie proves that life always requires sacrifices, no matter how bad. The protagonists, Layla and Samir, has once again reminded that if only things go their way, the everyday life we live in is never that much of an agony. It's amazing how this story showed such complexity within minimum time span and characters. It's so relatable we got bunch to explode. It speaks a…
