The Angry Birds Movie (2016) Ika Krismantari Three billion downloads of various Angry Birds games may have been enough justification for game company Rovio Entertainment to adapt the game into a movie. However, good story, hilarious jokes and solid characters are other reasons. EDIT

Pixels (2015) Hans David Tampubolon To make things worse, Pixels is very patriarchal, and in many senses, it even comes to close to being misogynistic -- the female characters simply serve as eye candy for men. EDIT

The Revenant (2015) Anton Hermansyah Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki's sleek technique is able to intensify the harsh reality in detail: from the close-up of the bear's saliva dripping, its foggy breath as seen through the lens, and the bloody encounter between animal and man. EDIT

Room (2015) Novani Nugrahani The film's low-key techniques, combined with Larson and Tremblay's humble yet audacious performances, are able to create an intimate and humane cinematic experience. EDIT
