Movie Review – The Greatest Showman


Went to Johor Bahru with 2 friends today and after a bit of window shopping, we decided to watch a movie! Needless to say, movies in Malaysia is a lot cheaper than in Singapore.

I wasn’t surprised that the topic was about transgender and the film tells the remarkable story of Einer/Lili Wegener (played by Eddie Redmayne), the first transgender person to undergo reassignment surgery.

Movie Review – Red 2


Went to watch ‘Red 2’ after seeing the trailer before watching ‘Now You See Me’.  Just found the trailer hilarious and I was watching it mainly for John Malkovich and to oogle at Lee Byung Hun’s bod. *Huge grin* Unbeknownst to me, ‘Red 2’ is the sequel to ‘Red’ which is from a comic of the same name.  In this…

‘Now You See Me’ is an AWESOME film


I seldom give films high praise but ‘Now You See Me’ deserves 2 thumbs up/ 5 popcorns out of 10/ whatever scale you want to use! This movie is not as widely publicised or marketed as other films, which is a shame considering that the cast is rather star studded and the acting was superb. We have Mark Ruffalo acting…
