Have you noticed how Spider-Man’s rogues gallery comprises zoo escapees? I’m not kidding here, Spider-Man fights the Lizard, the Vulture, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Scorpion, Beetle, and a whole host of other villains with excellent costume designs and terribly lazy names. It’s like they drew animal flash cards for babies out of a hat. That’s not why he’s so insanely popular though. If you’re familiar with Spider-Man…

Wonder Woman and her wondrous accessories

Jun 1st, 2017 Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Superheroes, War Marcus Goh 6 min read

You know what’s really wondrous about Wonder Woman? It’s not that she can fight in that outfit without any wardrobe malfunctions or that she manages to battle bad guys without getting hair all over her face. I wouldn’t even say it’s the fact that she’s more powerful than Batman but still somehow ends up taking orders from him. It’s her clothes and accessories. It turns…

Mar 13th, 2017 Action, Adventure, Animation, Asian Cinema, Drama, Musical, Romance, Superheroes, Teens, Thriller Rachel Chan 9 min read

Because PG13 movies, of course. While the more kid-friendly films tend to be released during June, September and closer to Christmas, March school holidays are usually bereft of G-rated movies. There’s no exception for this school holiday either – there are a couple of blockbusters and Japanese anime features showing right now; you just need to be old enough to watch them. In case you didn’t…

5 painful symptoms of aging for a mutant like Wolverine

Logan is one of the most painful X-Men movies ever to grace the silver screen. It takes the sole member of the X-Men who can survive a nuclear explosion, the one character that is literally unkillable – and shows you that even he isn’t safe from the ravages of old age. In case you forgot, here’s Wolverine getting burnt to a crisp by an atomic…

9 Uniquely Singapore Lego sets

Feb 9th, 2017 Action, Adventure, Animation, Child-friendly, Comedy, Fantasy, Superheroes Marcus Goh 10 min read

Lego is a part of almost every kid’s childhood. Those building blocks allowed you to create anything you could imagine (as long as you had the parts), and kept children entertained for hours. They were so much fun that it was worth the occasional spasm of agony you would get from stepping on an errant piece (those 4×2 bricks are the worst, I tell you)….

5 iconic vehicles of Singapore’s roads

Jan 14th, 2017 Action, Child-friendly, Comedy, Superheroes Marcus Goh 9 min read

One of the most distinguishable characteristics of a country is the cars on the road. It says so much about the population and mindset of nation when you see the type of cars that its citizens buy… even if that country is purportedly moving to a car-lite society (facilitated by those who are drivers, ironically). So these are the most iconic cars on the Singapore…

Movies to look forward to in the first half of 2017

Hollywood blockbusters will come and go, but 2016 will be remembered as the year that Leonardo DiCaprio finally won his Oscar, and the year that muscle movie Mad Max: Fury Road received 10 Oscar nominations. The dust has settled but not for long; 2017 has its noteworthy releases any cinephile should look forward to. From action flicks to animated features to sequels/prequels of DC/Marvel movie…

6 super sexy doctors that will make you want to study medicine

Oct 28th, 2016 Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Superheroes Marcus Goh 9 min read

It takes many years of studying, being a houseman, and getting vomited on before you can actually be a full-fledged doctor. It’s a long and arduous path to take, which is why not every Tom, Dick, or Harry can become one. You need a passion for healthcare or some serious motivation before you take the Hippocratic oath. Sometimes that motivation can come from personal experiences,…
