    Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Third Phase: Where Things Start to Improve



    10 years ago when Iron Man came into the scene, the concept of an origin story and a bankable superhero film is not foreign. Studios have managed to create successful ones, some have even developed into a franchise. However, it was in the post-credit sequence in the first Iron Man film that certainly planted the seed of success that Marvel Studios would manage to attain if it played it’s cards…

  • Annihilation

    Annihilation

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Much like the meteor that came and landed on our planet, it obliterated a significant portion of Earth’s ecosystem, ranging from fauna to flora; a scientific accident that changed everything. It had annihilated the old and brought life to the new, with those that survived evolving to the needs of their own survival.

    It can be said that the incident of Alex Garland’s Annihilation is merely an accidental occurrence, where the point of impact has left an ever-growing ripple -…

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★

    I have allowed some time to brew on this. What initially was perceived of confusing motivations and half-baked connections, notably in its first half, has slowly brought forth a sense of clarity on who these characters are and what they deeply want.

    The connection that they have for one another, evolving from the simplicity of a professional relationship, begins to reveal shades of intimacy and purity, often conveyed through cryptic and cushioned exchanges - but equally understood, that is more…

    Parasite

    ★★★★

    Bong Joon-Ho once again returns to the outrage of society as he tells the story of an opportune lower-class family interweaving themselves within the domesticated space of a wealthier counterpart, contrasting their socioeconomic parallels in this darkly comedic tale.

    What initially feels like moments of humorous deviousness from this lower-class family, eventually morphs itself into territories of rage, confrontation, and social injustice. It isn’t afraid to reveal the darkness that potentially lurks within the human spirit, a quality often found…

    Review In A Nutshell:

    The last couple of months have been hard, staring into the abyss titled "life"; with very little room behind me to run to, soon leaving me with only one single decision, which is to move forward. I am constantly worried about my future, whether or not I would find success in my chosen career pathway, whether I would find love,…

  • Snowpiercer

    Snowpiercer

    ★★★★½

    Snowpiercer is dense, more so than I had anticipated, its plot initially fuelled by the heated emotions that run through the titular train’s lowest class culture, a desperation for a revolution, to finally end the suffering that has plagued them for 17 years. Its tail to head journey is led by the headstrong Curtis (Chris Evans), radiating leadership and intelligence, appointed by the people as their front in their trials towards the engine, which is manufactured and controlled by a…
