REVIEW: War for the Planet of the Apes

As someone who had never seen the last two Planet of the Apes movies, I went into the cinema not knowing what to expect. Matt Reeves, at the helm of the ending installation to the trilogy had standards to uphold, but how would they play out? I needn’t have worried, because to be absolutely honest – the movie was in all aspects beautiful. For those of us who were unfamiliar about the origins of the Apes, included minimalistically were a few paragraphs of their backstory – a very considerate inclusion from the production side. This movie follows the manifestation...

REVIEW: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man has come home. Marvel’s most popular superhero made his entry into the MCU proper in Captain America: Civil War in a show-stealing outing – in what was a good but overall underwhelming slice of superhero action that served more as a setup to a fresh status quo. Now, in his third big screen incarnation, Spidey returns, played by Tom Holland as a fresh-faced 15 year old who’s just beginning to learn the ropes as the webslinger. Plot Homecoming sees Peter Parker return home to Queens after the rush of battling alongside – and against – the Avengers, and...

Transformers: The Last Knight, BEST MOVIE EVER!

By Jeremy Say As a true Michael Bae fanboy, it’s no surprise that he has made yet another excellent movie- Transformers: The Last Knight. Sadly (for all TRUE fans), this is supposed to be his last movie for the Transformers saga.. From classics like Bad Boys, The Rock and Armageddon, the only real blemish on his flawless record was Pearl Harbor. In his defense, it wasn’t totally his fault. Pearl Harbor was co-produced by that nonsensical Jerry Bruckheimer guy, geh. Now before this gets derailed any further, I have to say that this movie was a blast. I mean,...

REVIEW: Wonder Woman

By Shazwan Zulkiffli After Batman Vs Superman, I have to admit, I was a bit nervous going into this movie. I mean, the Justice League trailer looks as messy as BvS and it definitely didn’t impress me one bit (except maybe the unexpected badassery of Aquaman). However, a small part of me figured that DC would not go Groundhog Day after the disaster that they’ve have to endure through the last two DCEU releases, and they would finally have to bring out their big guns to blast through the layers of criticism and meme-able hate that they’ve been getting...

REVIEW: Guardians of the Galaxy 2

By Shazwan Zulkiffli If there’s one thing we truly know about the only distant crew of misfits in the MCU so far, is that they know how throw a party in space. Peter Quill and his crew of uptight but hilarious anti-heroes once again wreak havoc around the galaxy with another sick playlist comprising of artists from the 80s (yes, Peter’s choice of music is limited because he was kidnapped by the Ravagers from Earth at an early age). In a way, the heroes have grown in subtle and not-so-subtle ways as characters, like how Peter grew slightly bulkier...
