4 characters we think will die in Avengers: Infinity War (and 3 who will survive)

Apr 21st, 2018 Action, Adventure, Child-friendly, Drama, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Superheroes, Thriller Marcus Goh 14 min read

The answer to that is a copout, of course – half the Avengers will die in Avengers: Infinity War. After all, the trailers have shown Gamora saying that Thanos’ goal is to kill off half the universe – by assembling the Infinity Gauntlet. You see, all those world-ending artifacts that we’ve seen in previous Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies are actually the six Infinity Stones….

Which giant monster from ‘Rampage’ are you? Take our quiz to find out!

Apr 13th, 2018 Action, Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Science Fiction Marcus Goh 9 min read

Did you play the first Rampage game when it hit arcades in 1986? It was a pretty unique game when it came out in the 80s. Instead of playing a stereotypical action hero who traversed level after level defeating evil monsters – you were the evil monster. And your mission was to destroy the entire city by literally punching each building until it collapsed. And…

Kaiju-Jaeger hybrids and 5 other things we want to see in Pacific Rim: Uprising

Mar 22nd, 2018 Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Science Fiction Marcus Goh 8 min read

Pacific Rim was every science fiction fan’s dream come true – giant robots fighting giant monsters from otherworldly dimensions as the fate of the world hung precariously in the balance. It was a grand mash-up of old monster movies, Neon Genesis Evangelion, mecha movies, Godzilla movies and virtually everything an otaku could want. There’s so much to love about Pacific Rim that its entry on…

What is the fourth dimension?

Mar 7th, 2018 Action, Adventure, Child-friendly, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Teens Marcus Goh 6 min read

The fourth dimension is not time – Einstein himself said so. You’re welcome to disagree though, once you’ve made a more important discovery than the theory of relativity. So… what’s the big deal about it? We already have length (the first dimension), area (two dimensional shapes), and volume (3D objects). It’s served as pretty well so far. Plus, we can’t really see the fourth dimension, can…

Movies that are more fun to watch with your family

It’s that wonderful time of the year of all-night mahjong, wanton feasting, and at least one and a half days of complete rest from work. This being one of the rare times of the year an entire family gets together, most Chinese New Year movies are produced with the intention of entertaining the whole family. This coming Chinese New Year holiday, we have: Marvel Studios’…

Purple, silver, yellow – Marvel literally has characters in every colour

Feb 13th, 2018 Action, Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Superheroes Marcus Goh 10 min read

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a literally colourful place. Virtually every colour has been used in their character codenames, which is no mean feat when you think about it. Unlike the DC Universe, which has the Green Lanterns (and Lanterns for every colour of the rainbow, we’re not kidding you here), the Marvel Universe doesn’t actually have a reason to have a superhero or supervillain…

Movies we can’t wait to watch in 2018

It’s too early to tell whether 2018 is going to be a good year, but Hollywood has promised that it will be an entertaining one – there will be monsters, dinosaurs, spies, vampires, Biblical figures, Transformers, teens who come of age, and some very powerful female characters. On the home front, we will see Liang Xi Mei on the silver screen during Chinese New Year,…

‘Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds’ is the movie version of Haw Par Villa and this is why

Jan 11th, 2018 Action, Adventure, Asian Cinema, Drama, Fantasy Marcus Goh 9 min read

Did you know that Haw Par Villa is actually operational? My editor didn’t, haw haw, and it seems that she isn’t the only one! If you were born in the 70’s or 80’s, a day trip to Haw Par Villa would have been unforgettable (to put it in an understated way). The ostensibly “educational” theme park features more than 1,000 statues in a series of…

What REAL people would do if they ever had the ability to time travel

Jan 8th, 2018 Asian Cinema, Celebrities, Drama, Fantasy, Science Fiction Marcus Goh 8 min read

Namiya, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, The Time Traveler’s Wife – these are all great films, but they ignore one rather critical fact – what living, breathing, logical human beings would ever do if they had the ability to time travel. Let’s face it, it’s nice to be all sappy about going back in time to confess your love or relive certain events, but…
