Once Upon A Time In Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt as fictional actor Rick Dalton and the fictional stunt double Cliff Booth, respectively. But what makes it come to life is the fact that they’re surrounded by real-life actors from history, such as Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), Jay Sebring (Emile Hirsch), and James Stacy (Timothy Olyphant), among others. This makes the fictional actors seem…

One of New York’s most famous (or infamous) areas is the Hell’s Kitchen neighbourhood – which is exactly where crime drama The Kitchen takes place. If Hell’s Kitchen sounds familiar to you – it should. it’s where Daredevil comes from, and it’s also a playable area in Grand Theft Auto IV (although it’s given the clever name “Purgatory” in that game). The Kitchen follows a…

5 Fast & Furious team-ups which would make excellent spin-offs like ‘Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw’

Aug 3rd, 2019 Action, Adventure, Thriller Marcus Goh 9 min read

The Fast & Furious film franchise is basically a superhero show without superpowers (or an action film on steroids) – and we love it! What’s not to love about fast cars, insane stunts and high octane action? In fact, the series is so popular that it’s spun off two characters into their own movie – Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw. Only the Fast &…

Ah, the Moon. Ever since humanity gazed into the heavens and realised that the Moon was actually a physical, spheroid astronomical body, we’ve been obsessed with attempts at space travel, just like in Doraemon: Nobita’s Chronicle Of The Moon Exploration. Remember the great Space Race of the 1950s (if you’re old enough to, that is)? So it’s no wonder that in movies and television, outer space…

Jul 26th, 2019 Drama, Horror Marcus Goh 9 min read

If you’re a cinephile, you’ll have noticed a familiar face who’s appeared more frequently in recent films like psychological horror movie Ma. He’s none other than Luke Evans, that guy who looks a lot like Orlando Bloom, but isn’t! He’s popped up as protagonists and antagonists in films, showing us just how versatile he is when it comes to roles. And he’s believable both as…

Why are lions the king of the Serengeti, like in ‘The Lion King’?

Jul 21st, 2019 Animation, Drama, Musical Marcus Goh 9 min read

The Lion King is a story about the succession of royalty in the Pridelands, an African savanna that is inhabited completely by animals. The lions are clearly the rulers of this idyllic paradise, so the battle to be the next king of the Pridelands is purely between the lions. But oddly, none of the other animals ever seem to object to the lions ruling over…

Anime like ‘Crayon Shin-chan’ can make these ordinary places seem romantic

The amazing thing about anime is how it can make anything look beautiful – just look at the Crayon Shin-chan series! While Shin-chan and his family are unmistakably ugly (they were designed that way, after all), they’re still pretty decent to look at, in a cute anime way. Just take a look at Shin-chan and his parents in Crayon Shin-chan: Dangerous Honeymoon – The Lost…

Chucky from ‘Child’s Play’ versus Annabelle – which freaky doll would win?

Jul 14th, 2019 Horror Marcus Goh 7 min read

Before we get into the battle proper, let’s establish which Chucky we’re talking about here. We’re referring to Chucky from Child’s Play (2019), not Child’s Play (1988). While they’re both about a psychotic murder doll named Chucky who’s out to terrorise families and innocent children, the origin story has been updated this year. Child’s Play (1988) explained that Chucky was the result of voodoo magic gone wrong. But…

Ever since Spider-Man was introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of his defining traits is his desire and excitement to be an Avenger. Remember how eager he was to impress in Captain America: Civil War (his first appearance)? His excitement to continue doing Avenger-y stuff in Spider-Man: Homecoming? His obedience in Avengers: Infinity War? Well, he’s back in Spider-Man: Far From Home, although the…
