Film Review: Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) - USA

Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) - USA As the saying goes “I’ll be back!” and just like that we get another “Terminator” rehash that is not only highly unnecessary, but needlessly soulless experience for all involved. In fact, the film is so cheesy that it almost falls in the category of so bad it is good category. Unfortunately it is not the case, as the film starts well and gradually falls apart one terminator fight after another. While it may be fun to see a terminator that refuses to die and come back stronger every time, there goes a time when...

Film Review: Joker (2019) - USA

Joker (2019) - USA   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   What is so stunning about “Joker” is the thorough depiction of human condition at its deepest core. We are chilled by the fact that “Joker” is not a mere villain on comic book, but rather a result of the context and surrounding from traumatised childhood abuse to growing up with a hideous uncontrollable laughter to constant battle with mental illness. We get a full picture of a character that is ultimately disturbed, but we understand his motivations and how he became what he is. The...

Film Review: IT Chapter 2 (2019) - USA

IT Chapter 2 (2019) - USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Bigger is not necessary better is probably what I wanted to say about the latest eagerly awaited “IT Chapter 2”. Whilst the first film set the totally creepy tone and deeper psychological horror / thriller perfectly, “Chapter 2” goes over the top in all aspects, it’s louder, more ambitious and definitely more outrageous. It’s not exactly a bad thing, but some moments are easily better than others and clocking at 170 minutes, there will be sleep induced moments. Director Andy Muschietti smartly allows the...

Film Review: Yesterday (2019) - USA

Yesterday (2019) - USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Imagine a world without “The Beatles” and their time-lasting songs that sweep a generation for the ages. Imagine you woke up one day after an accident, where only you know all the “Beatles” songs and existence plus the fact that you are a down and out struggling singing artist. Such is the fascinating premises that “Yesterday” plays with through succinct character development and a beautifully layered story filled with a touch reality and fiction. Director Danny Boyle manages to make the film immensely heartfelt and constantly...

Film Review: The Current War (2017) - USA

The Current War (2017) - USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Released in cinemas 2 years after its TIFF debut due to the Harvey Weinstein’s allegations, “The Current War” is lavish in its period set designs with top notch A-list casting of Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult and Tom Holland. Somehow the film remains rather average and stale with a lack of crucial excitement factor or adrenaline going for it. Instead we get the classic old battle of AC and DC between two powerhouse of electricity Sir Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. Satirical comedy...
