    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★★½

    A well made theatrical experience of (a glimpse of) a great performer's life. Maybe just like his shows, watching the movie in the middle of audiences with big speakers is the-or might be the only-best way to enjoy it. EEEOO?

    The Night Comes for Us

    ★★★★

    Truly the escalation we've been waiting for since The Raid 2. You get more violence (in too much scenes, maybe), more mainstream casts with unexpected performance, but sadly, Timo struggled to make one great story. Maybe that's what took him so long since 2013. Or should we all just accept that story might not be the thing audiences are looking for in this film?

    ★★★★½

    Not as complicated as Edwin's usually be, yet it flows really well through natural dialogues and interesting shots of food. Surprisingly, the comedy works and proves such film doesn't need 'Youtubers' to be funny and great casts is the key. Nicholas Saputra and Dian Sastro also shows their true quality. The only thing that disturbed me is Palari's classic mistake which is the audio dubbing. Surely will watch it again to catch more details.

    ★★½

    It's a promising piece the writer couldn't finish. It has all the potentials to be better yet ended up just as a thrilling ride. Reviews say it's good you have to watch it twice to understand, I agree it's confusing at first, that makes me disagree that it's good.
