Was I Haunted By Valak After Watching The Nun (2018)?? [Review]

Hello movie freaks! (I am still testing this one…)

How was your weekend? Mine was alright, I went to a gallery and ended up watching The Nun.

I have actually never watched a film by myself (I sense your judgements…) so I decided to give it a shot with The Nun. Was it a smart decision? I have a mixed feelings about this, but anyway… I got a story for you. I sometimes worried about noisy audience while watching. But, the best thing happened last weekend. Beside me were this mom and two kids. I know what you are thinking “They must be noisy af”, but NO! The kids were actually QUIET the whole time. Can you imagine that?

Christopher Robin Makes Me Remember My Inner Child [Review]

May contain spoilers!

There are some films that are meant to be for kids and there are some kids film that are meant to be for adults. Yes, the new Christopher Robins film is not by far, a kid’s film. I know, I was surprised by those parents who brought their kids to watch this, thinking it’s a happy-go-lucky rainbow-coloured cartoon film, filled with beloved cartoon characters from their childhood. Well, the parents’ childhood, not the kids.

Not that the new Christopher Robin film is sad or gloomy by any means. It is actually rather entertaining and delightful for me. You see, I don’t really grow up with Winnie The Pooh and Hundred Acres Woods, but I know of it. I remember the time I accompanied my little sister to watch those cartoons, and I too, begin to fall in love with these adorable characters.

After the release of Avengers: Infinity War trailer last year, I was quite excited to see the third Avengers movie, although with a subtle caution since the second film, Avengers: Age of Ultron, was a big let down.

After premiering in Jakarta’s cinemas last Wednesday (Infinity War release date was April 25 in Indonesia!) and gained massive full-house run, I went to caught up with the hype. And you know what?
