Gods of Egypt: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is set to be crowned as the new king when his uncle Set (Gerard Butler) crashed in the ceremonies and took over the throne. To make the matter worst, Horus was left blinded and banished from the kingdom while all mortals are set to follow under Set's plans. Mortal thief Bek (Brenton Thwaites) has other plans as he stole the eye of Horus. However, his move costs the life of the girl, he loves Zaya (Courtney Eaton). Soon Bek teams-up with Horus to stop Seth and reclaim his throne in return of getting Zaya out of the afterlife. The film struggles to bring in a decent story about the Greek Mythology and to add more stress are the messy CGI effects that didn't live up with the expectations. The battle scenes are also a wreck and too flashy for its own good. It seems that their bombastic visual spectacle exploded too early before it even reached the end of the timer. Another problem is the plot that doesn't have any di

Let The Battle Begin in “BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE”

  Born one year apart in separate runs of DC Comics, Batman and Superman have leapt off the page to become cultural touchstones across the globe, embraced by generations of fans through decades of social and political change. One orphaned by crime, the other by a dying planet; one shaped by his thirst for vengeance, the other by the values of his human family. Their legends have fueled adaptations in every new medium under the sun, including landmark graphic novels and more than a dozen movies between them. But never have these two seminal Super Heroes faced off against each other on the big screen … until now, in Warner Bros. Pictures' epic action-adventure “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” The stage was set for their epic face-off in Snyder’s earlier foray into the DC Universe, “Man of Steel,” when Superman tears through Metropolis like a ballistic missile to defeat the alien enemy, General Zod, in an airborne battle that destroys Wayne Tower – and everyone insid

Groundbreaking ‘GREENROOM’ redefined horror genre in film!

“ Green Room” is a brilliantly crafted and wickedly fun horror-thriller starring Patrick Stewart as a diabolical club owner who squares off against an unsuspecting but resilient young punk band. Down on their luck punk rockers The Ain't Rights are finishing up a long and unsuccessful tour, and are about to call it quits when they get an unexpected booking at an isolated, run-down club deep in the backwoods of Oregon. What seems merely to be a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren't meant to see. Now trapped backstage, they must face off against the club's depraved owner, Darcy Banker (Stewart), a man who will do anything to protect the secrets of his nefarious enterprise. But while Darcy and his henchmen think the band will be easy to get rid of, The Ain't Rights prove themselves much more cunning and capable than anyone expected, turning the tables on their unsuspecting captors a

‘Born to Dance’ biggest hip-hop dance movie storms in Philippine cinemas!

  An ambitious young man from Auckland dreams of being a professional hip-hop dancer. Born to Dance is a movie about Auckland teenagers with dreams of hip-hop dance stardom, and its shot through with dance sequences that tell the story of their desires in vivid, explosive fashion. Director Tammy Davis , making his feature debut, says he was drawn to the script of Born to Dance because of the way it showed "young Maori and Pacific Island kids aspiring to be the best they can be" . Yet he freely admits that he didn't know how much dance talent was in his home town, ready to take on the world. Much of this energy comes from a dynamic young dancer-choreographer, Parris Goebel, whose credits include choreography for Janet Jackson , Cirque du Soleil and Nicki Minaj , and the development of her own ferocious dance style that she calls Polyswagg. Her talents are most recently shown in a wonderful video that she created and danced in, alongside female members of

Rudyard Kipling's “THE JUNGLE BOOK” to Touch New Generations

  Disney’s “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli, a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan, who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera, and the free-spirited bear Baloo. Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa, a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie, who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. Based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories, “The Jungle Book” is inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, with an approach all its own. “We embrace the mythic qualities of Kipling in the

Zoolander 2: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers After the tragic loss of his wife (Christine Taylor) and the unfortunate incident that removed him from the custody of his son, Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) decides to live in a remote cabin in New Jersey. While Hansel (Owen Wilson) on the other hand, is living with his orgy family in the desserts of Malibu. The two are already forgotten fashion icons but when they are visited by Billy Zane handing them an important message. Soon, the two met in Rome where they try to redeem themselves and get back on track, but they must face a former foe who is planning another evil plot to the fashion universe.  One thing we've done wrong is we didn't have the time to watch the first film. We're a bit lost with some of the jokes they referred 15 years ago. We are really confused with the story that feels disoriented as the plot was made just to scrap off some cash who enjoyed the first film. Zoolander 2 is also overstuffed with cameos of fashion icons you

However, their lives changes when the two met in a resort and know more about each other. Their relationship blossoms into something much deeper but the two is still reluctant to give in because they are afraid that something might change  within their friendship. Dan Villegas continues to bring romantic comedy films into new heights with his latest project Always Be My Maybe. He still used the same formula from his past projects but still come-up in making his film relatable to his audience. He knows how to create situations that will surely have an impact for the viewers. Kudos to the cast as the unexpected team-up of Gerald Anderson and Arci Muñoz was a success. At first, you'l

Eric Bana Makes The Toughest Choices in “THE FINEST HOURS”

  Australian actor Eric Bana (“Hulk,” “Lone Survivor”) plays Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff, the commanding officer of the Coast Guard station when the storm hit, in Walt Disney Pictures' gripping sea rescue tale, “The Finest Hours.” The film is based on the extraordinary true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history in the U.S. Presented in Digital 3D, the film transports audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale. “ Cluff is new to this particular region of Amercia, and while being an outsider in a small town is always a struggle, it’s even more difficult when you are in a position of power and have to command people who are local and have been there much longer than my character has,” Bana says. He continues, “Cluff is from the South and everything about him is different, from the way he commands to how he sounds, and he anticipated having a level of respect from his men which is jus

Chris O’Dowd plays journalist David Walsh In The Program

Chris O’Dowd has become a bit of a disgruntled sports fan. His beloved Liverpool are in what seems like perpetual change and the arrival of Jürgen Klopp is far from a guarantee that the 25-year search for a Premier League title will end. At least he can’t blame Liverpool’s demise on other team’s cheating and that’s what’s really got his ire up. He’s been spending the past few months trying to work out the enigma that is Lance Armstrong, the cycling superstar who overcame cancer to win the Tour de France seven times. It was a unique achievement at arguably sport’s toughest endurance event. Then came the revelation that it was a house built on lies.  In Stephen Frears’ The Program , O’Dowd plays journalist David Walsh, the man who refused to believe Armstrong’s lies, even when the cyclist successfully sued Walsh’s paper for libel, winning a multimillion-pound payout. O’Dowd has the same zealous belief that science and doping are making a mockery of sport. “For me as a sports fa
