Bingers, we all have our favorite Netflix film. For me, it’s The King starring Timothy Chalamet. It’s so good it got me surprised that it didn’t get a wide release. As it turns out, it is becoming the trend for big movies to head straight to streaming sites such as Netflix! Now, at the 15th Cinema One Originals Film Festival, Netflix will be debuting two original films: The Two Popes and Dead Kids.
It has been 39 years since we last entered Overlook Hotel. It has been nearly 40 years since The Shining came out and the classic is still embedded in everybody’s head. Stanley Kubrick did a great job in adapting Stephen King’s novel, despite some controversy between the two creators. One’s taste did not match the other’s but as for us viewers, the film is such a classical masterpiece. So, this just raises the question: Should there really be a sequel? Honestly, if you ask me, I’d say yes. While the first movie was widely loved by many people, it was just a so-so for me. It was classified as a horror movie but I wasn’t scared, not even once! I saw it instead as a creative adaptation of family abuse. And at the core of the story, it truly is. The sequel to it, Doctor Sleep, changed my mind about the movie. It made me appreciate it even more as it dove deeper into its lore. So, Bingers, here is my review of Mike Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep.
We have failed as a society. That’s the hard truth that Joker is trying to tell us. As citizens of the society, we collectively failed to do our parts and in return, created monsters, the monster- Joker. I could go on and on and on with how much brilliance is in Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow’s unraveling of the iconic comic villain. Bingers, here is my review of Todd Phillips’ Joker.
We grew up learning about the mystery of the Loch Ness monster and the chupacabras. We wondered about the existence of the UFOs. But if there’s one thing closest to our Asian hearts, that is the mystery of the Big Foot or Yeti. These mythical creatures have been a subject of fictional stories for the longest time. And on those occasions, they have always been painted as gruesome creatures who know nothing but to hunt for blood. In DreamWorks Animation’ and Pearl Studios’ Abominable, they were shown on a different light. It was a story of Asian family culture that is filled with heart and adventure. Bingers, here is our review of Abominable:
Alright, Bingers. Answer me this: can you imagine the world now without the songs from The Beatles? No Hey Jude, no Eleanor Rigby, no Let It Be. Uncanny, right? Well, if you cannot imagine a world without The Beatles, imagine no more because that is what Yesterday explored in the movie starring Himesh Patel, Lily James, Ed Sheeran, and Kate McKinnon! I grew up listening to the songs by The Beatles and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie from start to finish. Bingers, here is our review of Yesterday:
