Movie Review – Spiderman: Homecoming

Captain America and the Gang may have protected the Earth from alien invasions, but it’s Spiderman that has always been my favourite superhero. If you’re getting mugged in a dark alleyway by a hoodlum, it won’t  be IronMan flying down from the sky to save you – it’s going to be Spidey swinging from his…

Movie Review: Power Rangers 2017

Few things evoke a 90s kid’ sense of nostalgia more than Power Rangers. I can’t be the only one who sat religiously in front of the TV on Saturday mornings, waiting for the iconic theme song to come on. My favourite scene always involved the Zords combining into Megazord and bashing up bad guys. At…

Movie Review – Hidden Figures

There are two things that prompt me to write a review immediately after watching a film. Either it’s so terrible/bad I feel impelled to warn others not to waste their money on time or it, or it’s so good that it becomes a duty to share its brilliance. Thankfully, Hidden Figures is the latter. It is,…

Movie Review – Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Has it really been 15 years since the first Resident Evil movie? I’m convinced Milla Jovovich is a vampire, she never seems to age. :D While I’m not a big fan of the series, I have watched all the films online. So when I heard that the ‘final’ instalment of the series was out, I…

Movie Review: Disney’s Moana

  I’m gonna get a lot of flak for this, but I think Frozen was one of the most overrated Disney films of all time.  There, I said it. No doubt the fans will be calling for blood lol. It wasn’t bad, but I just didn’t understand the whole hype surrounding it and how people…

Piaget Style Icon – Jackie Kennedy

She was a media darling and one of the most photographed ladies in America in the 1960s. Even today, her influence resonates through in modern fashion and pop culture. She gave us the signature sleeveless A-line dresses, above the elbow gloves, low heel pumps, clean cut suits with skirt hem to the middle of the…

Movie Review: Inferno

Considering the amount of hype that came with the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, promotions for the Inferno film were relatively subdued. I only knew it was coming out because a friend told me about it. Are audiences finally getting tired of Robert Langdon?  *** For those who aren’t familiar with the titles,…

Movie Review: Sully

2009 seems like a long time ago,  but I remember it quite clearly – flipping open the newspaper to an extraordinary picture of a commercial airplane in the water, with passengers standing on its wings. The photo was that of US Airways Flight 1549, which struck a flock of geese shortly after takeoff from LaGuardia…

Movie Review: Train to Busan

Being a fan of zombie films, I’m always on the lookout for a good one – and Train to Busan seemed to be getting rave reviews from fans and critics alike. ‘It will make you cry! A must watch!’ as one of my friends posted on Facebook.. so of course I had to check it out.…

Movie Review: Jason Bourne

Every time after watching a Bourne film, I go back home and listen to Moby’s Extreme Way on repeat. The next day, I forget about it. That about sums up the way I feel about the Bourne franchise. It’s a likable action film with a predictable plot, and entertains while it lasts – but does…

Movie Review – Angry Birds

It’s not the first time a movie has spawned from popular video games (think, Pokemon, Lara Croft, RE) but when I heard they were making a film based on Angry Birds? I… don’t know. What’s next? Flappy Bird? Despite my misgivings, I went to watch it anyway.  I was early at the theatre and my second…

Movie Review: X-Men Apocalypse

There have been so many superhero movies lately (Avengers, Captain America: Civil War, Batman v Superman) that one can’t help but feel a little numb at the sequel-cash-cows Hollywood seems to be milking for all they’re worth. But I’ve always liked the X-Men series (Can you believe it has been 16 years since the first…
