    ★★

    Why bother.
    Why even bother? Why even bother to make a sequel that will only serve as a rehash of its predecessor. “Blair Witch” could had been better if it went on a different direction from the first movie. The most we could discern on the differences between the two is the addition for more characters in the latest instalment unlike the original which has only three, and unfortunately, the rest is chaff.

    Train to Busan

    “28 Days later”, “28 Weeks Later”, and both George A.

    The Wolf of Wall Street

    ★★★★

    If you are so familiar with Scorsese’s works, you would be aware that he always attempted to bring out great movie for each decade. In the 70s, he gave us Taxi Driver, the flawless masterpiece Raging Bull in the 80s, Goodfellas in the 90s and The Departed in the 2000s. Could The Wolf of Wall Street be possibly his own movie classic of this decade? Or would it be Hugo? I cannot exactly decide, both are inarguably great cinemas. But…
