When the movie trailer opened with no sound except for that sole, clear, angelic voice of the boy singing the national anthem, then transitioning into a sinister rumble, serious and ominous, the low pounding escalating into some kind of chaos...and then we catch sight of the Caped Crusader in what would be revealed as the epic conclusion of the Batman trilogy, you just know-- that the Dark Knight will rise above all the superheroes who recently graced the big screen. And so you wait with pure excitement. That kind of restless anticipation. Because you just know it's going to be so, so good just by that teaser trailer alone.

And then the day came to finally watch. After finishing the two-hour-and-a-half epic finale, it turns out you were right. Christopher Nolan has rewarded your very high expectations.

In this emotionally gripping and intellectually satisfying epic finale, Gotham City is at peace time, and Bruce Wayne/Batman (Christian Bale) is in seclusion for eight years now; bearded, depressed, and lethargic. People are curious; where is the billionaire Mr. Wayne? And people are talking. Batman had murdered the city's hero Harvey Dent eight years ago, didn't he? He's a fugitive now. Gone. A legend. Then a beautiful cat burglar (Anne Hathaway) arrives, waking Mr. Wayne from his stupor...and then a big storm starts  brewing... (READ FULL REVIEW)
 
 
To Channing-lusting females, sexually frustrated housewives, gays, and closeted strippers, Magic Mike could be the answer to your fantasies. You don't have to visit a male strippers club—  just go to your nearest cinema for a generous sight of gyrating beefcakes, even if it's only in 2D.

Generating a ripple effect of female hysteria, Magic Mike seems to be the hottest and much-talked about movie in town, even by straight males. But if you're seeking for fun and entertainment that is beyond hot males grinding their pelvis—i.e., the story—then there's nothing in it.

Marketed as light and fun, the movie is actually more of a drama. Mike (Tatum) is an ageing superstar male stripper at Xquisite Club owned by Dallas (Mathhew McConaughey). The movie establishes early on that Tatum is a wise, responsible guy, so don't judge him! He is only using his sexy gig to save up for his real dream and ambition: furniture-making. But Mike's well-laid plains might just go wrong when he accidentally meets a 19-year-old unmotivated Calvin Klein model-lookalike, Adam/"The Kid" (Alex Pettyfer), and recruits him as a stripper under his wings—  and promising...(READ FULL REVIEW)
 
 
From the producer of 2012 Oscar Best Picture The Artist comes another hit French film that broke box office records in France and across Europe, going down in history as one of the most successful French movies of all time.

The Intouchables, based on a true story, focuses on the unlikely and touching friendship of an extremely rich disabled man and his ex-con Sengalese caregiver from the ghettos. Philippe (François Cluzet), a bored tetraplegic who lives in a mini castle in Paris, hires Driss (Omar Sy), a crass and vulgar black man who has no intentions of getting the job in the first place. And so we follow how two men from entirely different worlds find joy in each other's company...and making a huge difference in each other's lives....(READ FULL REVIEW)
 
 
The concept that the 16th American president was a vampire hunter is already a dubious entertainment material-- if not laughable. Especially when the story is delivered in a serious, historical manner. But the novel, on which this movie is based, has actually garnered positive reviews-- and followers. And with Tim Burton producing the movie version, I guess no one should underestimate the power of imagination and creativity and give this--*guffaws*--Abraham-Lincoln-with-a-secret-life-slaying-bloodsuckers a chance.


In Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, America is occupied by the living and the dead. Abe (Benjamin Walker) is confronted with this fact when he found out that it was actually a vampire that killed his mother. And so he not only becomes bent on ending slavery, but also becomes determined to avenge his mother's death and kill...(READ FULL REVIEW
