I wasn’t too fond of Stephen Fung’s “Tai Chi Zero” and so I was very reluctant to continue on with this trilogy with his “Tai Chi Hero”. Honestly, I barely even remember …

While I really got into the “Korean New Wave” because of directors Kim Ki-Duk, Park Chan-Wook, Lee Chang-Dong and Kim Ji-Woon, lately it seems like Korean movies also have their share of what …

Total Recall (2012 film)

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Remakes, prequels, re-boots, re-issues and re-imaginings often fall under one creative and narrative flaw. No matter how good a film is or tries to be, it always feels rather predictable. It is rather …
