Of Political Shootouts and Countless Betrayals.

I don’t often Netflix and chill, but when I do, I do it for five hours straight. Nah, not really. I kind of did it for the entire day. The whole of a Saturday of one particular weekend. To be honest, I rarely watch anything on Netflix unless it well and truly catches my eye….

My Love for Marvel and DC Comics.

If there’s one thing about me, it’s procrastination. In 2017, I missed a host of chances to watch big-time movies. I missed Wonder Woman. I missed Thor: Ragnarok. And I almost missed Justice League. Thankfully, I managed to catch it on December 31, the last day of 2017. This also was a last minute attempt…

Book Review: Sinners by Jackie Collins.

There was just too much sex, lust and perversity in this book. Too much. So much so that once I was done with it, I had to detox my brain with another one that came with none of what I’ve read in Jackie Collins’ novel. Gosh. The History Behind Sinners The novel was originally titled Sunday Simmons &…

A Timeless Tale of Beauty and Nostalgia.

Recently in Malaysia, the movie Beauty and the Beast had garnered negative attention when the Censorship Board spotted what they interpreted as a gay moment during the song and dance between the pompous Gaston, his sidekick LeFou and the townspeople. Apparently said “gay moment” occurred when LeFou lifted up his shirt to show the love bite…

Movie Review: Captain America – Civil War.

I know the poster says that May 6 is the official release date for the movie, somehow, it is already out here in Malaysia, and I saw it last night. Also, since many of you may not have seen it yet, I won’t be leaving spoilers in my review. I just want to say how…

Movie Review: The Jungle Book.

Watching The Jungle Book movie last night brought back so many childhood memories. As a child, I had watched the cartoon over and over again. The man-cub Mowgli surviving in the animal kingdom in the forest with the comical Baloo the bear, the ever-serious Bagheera the black panther, the sneaky Kaa the snake, the vengeful…

Whose Side Are You On? Batman or Superman?

Upon discovering the release and airing dates of the Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice movie last year, all I’ve done was wait patiently for it to hit the big screens in Malaysia. I’ve always loved DC Comics (and Marvel too) and the movie only served to crank up my curiosity as to who would…

Deadpool; No Holds Barred.

There are many reasons why Malaysians don’t trust nor like our own Censorship Board because they have a habit of censoring and removing the best parts from movies that are deemed to be too offensive for movie-goers, especially those who are not of age. More often than not, these could be the same reasons why…

Drama Kings and Queens.

Growing up, I never had the opportunity to watch many television series, despite some of them winning a number of Golden Globes and Oscar awards. I had a curfew to adhere to when I was growing up. Completion of school work and assignments at a certain time, helping out with household chores at a particular…

British Superstars Dead at 69.

When I finally heard the news… I thought, what are the odds? Two of the greatest superstars dead at 69 years old, both from cancer. David Bowie succumbed to liver cancer at 69 years old. Alan Rickman succumbed to cancer, also at 69 years old. David Bowie, as Ziggy Stardust: The Man and the Musician….

Hit Me, Britney, One More Time!

Once upon a time, when the Internet was new on everyone’s box-shaped computer. When songs contained meaningful lyrics, when singers and performers were not as skimpily-dressed and shouting out sex-heavy, bruised and battered lines. Also, once upon a time when Britney Spears was the darling of MTV, and everyone’s fantasy. Every guy wanted to be…

Beam Me Up, Scotty!

I regularly listen to LiteFM, a local radio channel in Malaysia, and Taylor Swift often pops up with her catchy pop tunes, with ‘Wildest Dreams’ and ‘Style’ being two of her latest numbers to be aired on the radio. I am quite taken with both songs, so I decided to watch the official music videos…

Gotham vs. Krypton.

Warning: Lost blog post ahead. There have been a lot of movie remakes lately, especially the ones with Peter Parker in it and the fairy-tales of Walt Disney. I vividly recall Kristen Stewart in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’. Oh my God, please, no. Her acting was stiff and wooden in the Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight…

Movie Review: Spectre.

I had the privilege of watching the premiere of ‘Spectre‘, the new James Bond instalment (courtesy of my father-in-law, who won four tickets to watch it at GSC in One Utama. So I went with my husband, and both my in-laws). Daniel Craig returned as the troubled, rule-breaking Agent 007, with Ralph Fiennes as ‘M’,…
