Crazy Rich Asians

Sunday, September 09, 2018

With the hype circling around the most anticipated summer movie Crazy Rich Asians, I have refrained myself from reading the book nor owning one for fear of disappointment that the movie can't deliver up to the book's expectation. I went into the theatre hall without any expectation; purely in for the entertainment.

And? *drum rolls*

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again

Sunday, August 12, 2018

Ten years ago, I won tickets to watch Mamma Mia movie & I brought Mum along as my movie date. I even did a short blog about it here. A decade later, the movie studio has decided to do a sequel after the success of the first movie. Titled Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, the story focuses more on Sophie's story about wanting to fulfil her mother, Donna Sheridan's dream.

This time, I thought it would be a nice idea to bring along Mum & my sister for a mother-daughters bonding session. Prior to the movie, we have a big question lingering in our minds - how would the sequel turn out since all the ABBA's greatest hits have been exhausted in the first film? Let's find out...

Avengers: Infinity War Part 1

Monday, April 30, 2018

It's the Avengers we all have been waiting for; a culmination of 10 years of Marvel movies leading up to the final battle with the ultimate villain, Thanos. The launch date was timely on the last week of April followed by a long holiday weekend to Labour's Day. I was excited, so is my hubby & we straight away hit the purchase button on the cinema website for the slot on April 30 coinciding with our annual leave too.

What's the final verdict? Let's find out.

Sighs...where do I begin? We all know Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been pretty busy lately, with movies released back to back - from Jumanji last year to the latest Rampage this month, and Skyscraper slated for release some time in June.

The Greatest Showman

Saturday, January 20, 2018

Hugh Jackman in a musical is not new news; his earlier gigs were mostly theatrical/musical based productions before his breakthrough role as Wolverine in Hollywood. Somehow, seeing him headlining The Greatest Showman evokes a strange feeling within me. I'm still not ready for this man putting his iconic comic hero behind him & moving on (or should I say, moving back) to what he does best - singing & dancing.

Thor: Ragnarok

Sunday, October 29, 2017

Thor: Ragnarok marks the end of the Thor trilogy, as Marvel Cinematic Universe inches closer to the long-awaited Avengers: Infinity War. This movie comes after Guardians of the Galaxy 2 which was released earlier this year, as part of Marvel Studios' movie lineup in 2017.

Not surprisingly, Ragnarok adopted Guardians of the Galaxy's theme famous for its retro soundtracks & psychedelic colour palettes - a tribute to the 70s & 80s. I thought it was an interesting & good move, keeping the mood consistent for a good crossover.

So, how did Ragnarok fare?

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Sunday, September 24, 2017

The world saw Kingsman: The Secret Service, adapted from the less known comic book series Kingsman & absolutely loved it. The humour, vulgarity, graphic violence but executed in a light-hearted manner - pure brilliance!

Now the casts are back bigger & supposedly better with Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Did it live up to the buzz from the first movie?
