  • Bumblebee

    Bumblebee

    ★★½

    Bumblebee is an okay blend of Transformers and buddy movie (with formula similar to E.T., or...errr Herbie). While it’s much better than most Transformers movies, it’s basically a formulaic safe-bet. (2.5/4)

  • Roma

    Roma

    ★★★★

    Beauty doesn’t seek for attention; it doesn’t have to look colorful and it doesn’t have to sound vibrant. Alfonso Cuarón crafts a personal beauty that feels immersive and warm reflected in every shot. Roma is eloquent, contextual and, definitely, timeless. (4/4)

    Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts

    ★★★★★

    It's a grace to Indonesian cinema and, more, to women's cinema.
    Mind your expectation.

    It's a story of Marlina the Murderer told in 4 acts.
    Not of Marlina, the murderer who commits 4 acts of killing.

  • Aquaman

    Aquaman

    ★★★

    As above, so below. Ever so often Aquaman⁠ ⁠fell into tonal mess and uneven narrative, but James Wan can compensate it with spectacle-heavy Carpenterian actions to please your eyes supported with Jason Momoa's proud performance.
