Pulse (回路,Kairo) Review: Help Me Escape Loneliness

Our world is ancient. People born and people die since prehistoric time. But what happens when there’s no more space left in the afterworld for those who have passed away? What are they? Ghosts? Wandering souls? When that happens, they bleed into our realm. The ghosts walk among us. So never open The Forbidden Room…… Continue reading Pulse (回路,Kairo) Review: Help Me Escape Loneliness

Savage Streets (1984) Review: The Hunting Bow Heroine

I’ve been thinking a lot about films and I’m beginning to really enjoy the medium. It’s like poetry. It’s full of imagery and it gets to the point, especially someone like me who is on the go and dislike details. I guess I’m a bit savage myself–me think in few words and like simplicity. According…… Continue reading Savage Streets (1984) Review: The Hunting Bow Heroine

Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) Review: The Anti-Material Girl

Should I have changed my title for this review to a story about a Classy but Penniless Gold Digger who Can’t Survive on her Own? That would mislead the readers on what I think about the beloved character Holly played by Audrey Hepburn. To call her a gold digger is far from the truth. However,…… Continue reading Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) Review: The Anti-Material Girl

Batman Begins (2005) Review: Conquer your Fears and Fight for Justice

Not going to lie, I miss going to the theatre, drinking overpriced fountain drink and eating popcorns. Batman Begins is quite fitting for this time, especially during this pandemic. As soon as I saw the film available on Netflix, I can’t helped but draw the correlation with our current fear to bats as it is…… Continue reading Batman Begins (2005) Review: Conquer your Fears and Fight for Justice

Mignonnes Review (2020): A Film for Pedophiles?

Netflix has some interesting shows. Growing up, my favorite channel was the International channel. I was always intrigued with how others live and think. At one point in my life, I watched nothing but international films. So it’s no surprise that Mignonnes also known as Cuties caught my attention. But what really pique my interest…… Continue reading Mignonnes Review (2020): A Film for Pedophiles?

The Revenger (1980) Review: I Fight in the Name of the Kung Fu Cop

Going around beating people in the name of righteousness sounds rather noble. Doesn’t it? In this case, The Revenger is simply about REVENGE!!! Far from serious, the undertone of the film is light hearted and humorous. I found myself laughing right off the bat as there are plenty of humorous catchy lines that made me…… Continue reading The Revenger (1980) Review: I Fight in the Name of the Kung Fu Cop

Parasite (2019) Review: The Insects of the Society

Have you read Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis? Let’s pretend you haven’t read it, then I shall give you a quick summary because if you came to me and ask me what Parasite is all about — I would tell you it’s the opposite of The Metamorphosis. You see, there is one thing they both have in common:…… Continue reading Parasite (2019) Review: The Insects of the Society

Ghost In the Shell (1995)Review: The Future of Humanity Is A Stream of Conscience

What are we? We are nothing more than a ghost in a shell. In the near future, the world will erase nations and races. What do we get, something beyond AI. Ghost in the Shell, based on a manga by Shirow Masamune is a film that I have never got around to watching until now.…… Continue reading Ghost In the Shell (1995)Review: The Future of Humanity Is A Stream of Conscience

Painted Faces (1988) Review: Never Look Down on Yourself Even if People Do

One thing I love about Hong Kong films back in the 80s to mid 90s is that it has the tendency to praise hard work and perseverance. Netflix did a great a job at recommending Painted Faces to me as I really enjoyed watching martial arts films but not all of them are made with…… Continue reading Painted Faces (1988) Review: Never Look Down on Yourself Even if People Do

Female Prisoner 701 Scorpion (1972) Review: The Obedient Citizen and Her Government

I’m glad I watched this film last in this series. It took a bit of detective work but I enjoyed the ride. Everything makes sense why Scorpion possesses the spirit of a dead girl and why she harbors a deep hatred towards cops. This film got political fast and I am afraid that I don’t…… Continue reading Female Prisoner 701 Scorpion (1972) Review: The Obedient Citizen and Her Government
