  • Upgrade



    Leigh Whannell broadens his repertoire of horror-fantasy creation with ‘Upgrade’—a body-horror-met-revenge-thriller cyber punk that could’ve a Black Mirror episode if only the show allows a visceral gorefest.

  • To All the Boys I've Loved Before

    To All the Boys I've Loved Before


    The saccharine-heavy ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ effectively uses its overly familiar ‘fake-first-date’ tropes to make a sweet & uplifting teenage romcom without over-abusing its sugary potential.

    The story’s in-and-out decoy, though. I was gonna thinking that it’ll go to that direction, but when it does, it feels satisfying.

    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.

  • Hereditary



    Witty is the new face of horror. Yet, Hereditary⁠⁠ is much more than that. It’s a mindfuck, disturbing mental challenge led by Toni Collette’s terrific performance and Ari Aster’s bone-chilling direction.

    The final 10-15 minutes were completely insane. Fuck.
