It’s an adult murder mystery set in a world of…

Dear director Jon M. Chu, could you please do a Singapore remake of Crazy Rich Asians?

Poor director Jon M. Chu. It’s so difficult to please everyone. Right after most media channels lauded Crazy Rich Asians for being the first Hollywood blockbuster ever with an all-Asian cast, his movie, as well as the book it was based on, was criticised for not being “woke” enough. You might have read the article on Vox by now, which says that both the book…

As a kid, I’d try to get extra TV time. In front of my mother, I would plead my case, extolling the goggle box’s educational benefits.  It was part excuse, part truth. I swear. Case in point, the South Korean fantasy blockbuster Along With The Gods (AWTG for short). The two-part flick (a third-part is scheduled to be filmed next year) is a dazzling CGI packed,…

Aug 9th, 2018 Horror Marcus Goh 9 min read

If you’ve served your time during National Service (NS), you’ll have heard more ghost stories than in the True Singapore Ghost Stories series. The thing is – ghosts aren’t real (looks over shoulder just to check). Some of the horrific things you’ll see in NS could match the tales of 2359: The Haunting Hour. It would shake the even the steeliest soldier around. Take a look at…

There’s something immensely gratifying about basking in feel-good music. Think kids and Disney die-hards belting out “Let It Go”  at the top of their lungs, on loop. Adults, don’t judge the Frozen fanatics. The ladies sitting behind me in the cinema, I’m talking to you. I heard you crooning to the chorus of “Mamma Mia!” while we were at the same Golden Village Movie Club…
