If there’s anything we learned from watching Oscar-nominated film The Post, it’s that a good source is essential to a good news story. And our trusted source from Golden Village has shared with us a most valuable insider hack on avoiding a mad rush for movie tickets this CNY: Buy them online the moment they’re released for sale.

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,…

Justice League’s worst kept secret: Superman’s going to come back to life

Nov 14th, 2017 Action, Science Fiction, Superheroes Marcus Goh 10 min read

Quick, name the members of the Justice League in your head. Even if you can’t recite all of their names (pfft, Cyborg’s a Teen Titan, no matter what anyone says), there’ll always be one name on everyone’s list. Superman. Yet almost all Justice League posters and media have been conspicuously omitting Superman from it – since he died in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice….

What we’re betting will happen in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Oct 23rd, 2017 Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Superheroes Marcus Goh 11 min read

Thor has been considered “the most boring superhero in the Marvel pantheon” (we beg to differ however, have you read about Thor’s exploits in traditional Norse mythology?), so it’s amazing how he’s getting his third movie, The Revengers Thor: Ragnarok, just six years after his debut in 2011! To begin with, let’s all learn how to pronounce Ragnarok properly – the Nordic pronunciation sounds more…

If you were born in the late 1980s, or live with under-12s, chances are that you’re aware of a LEGO universe called Ninjago – where a bunch of undisciplined teenagers train as secret ninja warriors under the tutelage of a white-bearded Sensei Wu (voiced by Jackie Chan), whose appearance is a dead ringer for Kill Bill’s Pai Mei. And even if you were not aware of Ninjago…

Spider-Man: Homecoming (Golden Village Cinemas)

The 6 sinister types of Spider-Man villains we meet at work everyday

Jul 4th, 2017 Action, Child-friendly, Science Fiction, Superheroes Marcus Goh 9 min read

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…

Everyone’s favourite heroes that nobody knew about three years ago is coming back this week! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 hits cinemas on 27 April, and we’ve got plenty of new cast members that, again, most people don’t know about!

Why the cinema is the best hangout this week if you’re at least 13

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

Mar 5th, 2017 Action, Adventure, Drama, Superheroes Marcus Goh 6 min read

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…
