    Well I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I had never seen this so-called horror masterpiece before. But wow, what a film. I thought it would be cheesy, gory and old-fashioned. But boy was I wrong. This film succeeded on showing us an eerie atmosphere effortlessly. I'm impressed on how Carpenter slowly, but sure, 'introduced' us to Michael Myers, with those terrifying stalking and lurking modes Michael did lol. It was definitely well-made and that iconic score creeps the hell out of me.

  • Scream



    Have seen this film like a gazillion times, and imo, it's still as enjoyable and exciting as the first time I watched it. A parody slash homage to slasher films before it, Scream delivered a sleek and smart script with a great twist at the end. The opening scene itself is legendary.

    I Wish


    Where the hell Hirokazu Kore-eda found all these child actors, and how did he work with them?? I Wish (Kiseki) filled with one of the best performances by child actors I've ever seen. The story is pretty sweet; two brothers, separated by their parents' divorce, are dreaming of reuniting. This film gently showed the naivety and the innocence of kids, about family, about dreams, and most importantly, about facing reality. The soundtrack adds the sweetness to this charming film as well.
