3.5/5 90% A Star Is Born (2018) No acting is required from Cooper and the accompanying band when [Lady Gaga] takes the stage. Like them, you will be in awe.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 85% A Simple Favor (2018) Feig's attempt at making A Simple Favor an engaging mystery backfires as the numerous flashbacks make the plot convoluted and silly. You can also see the twist a mile away.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 84% The Wife (2018) The premise of her latest drama is simple, but Close's controlled yet powerful performance will win her votes from the Academy.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 11% Peppermint (2018) The set-up may be incredulous, but [Jennifer Garner] makes it credible and is clearly more than convincing as the one-woman army exacting revenge on a drug cartel and the corrupt legal system.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

5/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) If you think Dwayne Johnson's stunts in Skyscraper are insane, wait till you see what Cruise does in Fallout.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 46% Skyscraper (2018) This Die Hard-like action thriller has adrenaline-pumping sequences that are worth the ticket price.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) It is a nice change to have a light, breezy Marvel flick that's more like a heist than a save-the-world superhero film.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 57% Hotel Artemis (2018) Violence takes precedence over story.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4/5 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) Boosted by Michael Giacchino's rousing jazzy score, Incredibles 2 is non-stop fun.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

48% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) The visual effects are beyond spectacular, and the dinos are the star players, especially the new and downright scary hybrid.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

40% Mary Shelley (2018) In a bid to make this biopic a mass-appeal romance, it is sad that the subtexts are lost in translation.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) My main beef is that there is no sense of originality despite it being an origin story.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 21% Terminal (2018) Twisty plot, unconvincing storytelling and bad pacing.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 83% Deadpool 2 (2018) [Brolin's] beefed-up baddie and Dennison steal the thunder from Reynolds, and that's great as Reynolds' wise-cracking shtick can get annoying after a while.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

1.5/5 15% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) You never once connect with the pleasant-looking leads.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2/5 34% I Feel Pretty (2018) The comedy is at times spot-on, but those moments can't beat the bloat.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2018
4.5/5 84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) Stunning action sequences, especially the climactic battle that rivals the immense Battle of Helms Deep in The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 52% Rampage (2018) You know Hollywood summer blockbuster season has started when you get mindless popcorn entertainment. Like Rampage. There is no other way to describe this preposterous flick about oversized and mutated animals terrorising the city of Chicago.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2018
1.5/5 19% The Titan (2018) In this bland sci-fi actioner that feels more like a TV movie, [Sam Worthington] is easily outshone by his 13-year-old co-star Noah Jupe.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 No Score Yet Be With You (Ji-geum Man-na-leo Gab-ni-da) (2018) By the time it reaches the final act, you'd probably already become a soggy mess, but there's no shame in that as the people around you will definitely be sniffling too.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 72% Ready Player One (2018) Spielberg's message about not losing touch with reality and corporate takeovers may be too obvious, but the glorious visuals will captivate you to the end.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

21% Submergence (2018) Director Wim Wenders has an ambitious global message about the environment and terror attacks, but his execution leaves this film and his lovely cast submerged under water.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 36% The Leisure Seeker (2018) Sadly, what sounds good on paper does not necessarily translate well onto the big screen.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
3/5 44% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) Predictable story aside, the action and the Jaegar fight scenes are pretty cool, though the new Jaegers will remind you of Transformers, complete with some Michael Bay-esque trademark moments.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 51% Tomb Raider (2018) I have not played the game in a long time, and this movie won't make me want to play it again. But I would like to see another Lara Croft outing, as it is always good to have another strong woman on the big screen.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2.5/5 84% Game Night (2018) Despite McAdams and Bateman's winning chemistry, the film slides down the longest ladder mid-way and never finds its way back up - no credit to the script's numerous twists and attempts to outwit itself.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4/5 96% The Florida Project (2017) Despite the sunny Florida skies, Baker shows how easily harsh realities can darken lives. The last scene of this thought-provoking film is heartrending.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 97% Black Panther (2018) Letitia Wright steals the thunder as T'Challa's younger sister and Wakanda's tech and weapons genius. I would love to see her and Tony Stark in the same room, just to watch them out-geeking each other.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 66% Wonderstruck (2017) The plot may be a little thin, but director Todd Haynes creates a rich and gorgeous film.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4/5 89% I, Tonya (2018) [Margot] Robbie embraces her role completely, displaying much intensity and strength. She ditches her usual glamorous image for one that is crude and crass.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 43% Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) This is a decent conclusion thanks to O'Brien's likeable lead. But it is Brodie-Sangster who captivates and tugs at your heartstrings.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

91% Phantom Thread (2018) Just like the intricate and lush gowns Woodcock produces, [Paul Thomas] Anderson has also gifted us with a gorgeous film to behold. ‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4.5/5 91% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) [Frances] McDormand fleshes out Mildred's emotions superbly. You really feel her pain, her loss, her rage, her guilt, and her desperation for closure.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

4/5 88% The Post (2018) This is a film about journalism and how only a well-oiled newsroom can produce great stories.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 52% 12 Strong (2018) Sure, there is air support - lots of it - but when it comes to winning a war, courage and knowledge of enemy territory and culture take centre stage.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
2.5/5 49% Downsizing (2017) Then, just when you settle into the film's preachy message about class and racial divisions, Payne throws another curveball in the final act, where Downsizing become a climate change advocate. By that time, it is too late in the game for you to care.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2/5 31% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) Unfortunately, it takes a sharp detour and goes down the action route, which ends up misfiring. ‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2/5 57% Murder On The Orient Express (2017) There are attempts at 1930s upper-class lushness - lots of art deco touches on the train, period-accurate fashion and shots of European scenery in winter - but it is garnishing on a mediocre dish.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3/5 80% The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) A visually impressive and heartwarming tale befitting the festive season. ‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

2/5 19% Daddy's Home 2 (2017) Sure, the first film in 2015 was a global box-office success, but that does not mean it warrants a sequel - and a lame one at that.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)

3.5/5 85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) Stone is a marvel, drawing you in as a crusader. You also feel her strains and internal struggles.‐ The New Paper (Singapore)
