Movie undercover cops – why do we love them so much?

May 2nd, 2018 Action, Crime, Drama, Thriller Marcus Goh 8 min read

无间道 (Infernal Affairs) made every kid want to be undercover cop when he or she grew up (although admittedly, you probably shouldn’t be watching it if you were under 13). Being an undercover cop is an equal mix of danger, glamour, heroics, and action. It takes a certain kind of person to be an undercover cop, a grizzled tough guy who secretly has a moral code…

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…

If you’re staunch fan of a video games and Time Magazine, you’ll have pondered this question for a very, very long time. Why hasn’t Lara Croft been Person of the Year on Time magazine yet?

Feb 1st, 2018 Action, Adventure, Crime Marcus Goh 9 min read

Quick – if you were to rob a bank (hypothetically, we’re not encouraging you to!), what would you do? Spend months and months planning, collecting information, fine-tuning actions, until you were perfectly ready to execute that flawless heist right? Well, not everyone is as intelligent as you are.

And nowadays computer games have those crappy things called microtransactions (paying for things in the game itself), so you not only have to pay for a game sometimes, you have to pay even more after buying it. What if I…

In The Foreigner, we get to see former Bond actor (does that make him a former Bondsman?) Pierce Brosnan go up against Jackie Chan in their roles as Liam Hennessy and Quan, respectively.
