Short Film Review: TIME TO KILL (2014)

While this short film doesn't quite reaches to its fullest potential, TIME TO KILL is a decent and well-acted offbeat comedy.

Review: KUNG FU JUNGLE 一个人的武林 (2014)

A flawed but entertaining mix of thrilling police procedural and old-fashioned martial arts genre disguised as a contemporary action drama, KUNG FU JUNGLE is one of Donnie Yen's most satisfying movies to date.

Review: SIFU VS VAMPIRE 天師鬥殭屍 (2014)

2 stars
SIFU VS VAMPIRE is fairly amusing, but this vampire-horror comedy suffers too much from incompetent direction to blend both genres successfully.

Review: CHINATOWN (1974)

5 stars
5 stars
CHINATOWN is a neo-noir masterpiece that truly turned the genre inside out with well-crafted complex plot and strong sociopolitical allegory.

Review: DRACULA UNTOLD (2014)

1.5 stars
1.5 stars
Despite Luke Evans' charismatic performance, DRACULA UNTOLD is disappointingly bloodless and toothless origin story of Dracula.

Thursday, 9 October 2014


Jeremy Renner delivers a tense and charismatic performance in KILL THE MESSENGER, an engaging but sometimes pedestrian fact-based drama.

2.5 stars
2.5 stars
ANNABELLE is technically proficient and has a few scary moments, but sadly ruined by weak story and dull performances.
