Injustice, 2021 – ★★★

As is tradition the DC animation knocks it out of the park when compared to their live action counterparts or anything Marvel. It gets a little strange at a point, but was still a more coherent and entertaining feature length animated effort than any of those “What If” episodes. The advantage of not being bound […]

Dragon, 2011 – ★★½

A Wu Xia History of Violence – Cool fights and bravado, with an interesting number of anticipation to the fabulous action set-pieces and little else. Enough for my inner action-junkie, not enough for my story aficionado. source https://letterboxd.com/jun6lee/film/dragon-2011/

Running Time, 1997 – ★★★★

Amateur film-making at its best. While Tarantino got a Miramax and a Harvey Keitel backing him, these guys did what they could without and it’s elegant, only elevated by the presence of The Chin, who’s clearly having fun too. source https://letterboxd.com/jun6lee/film/running-time/

Free Guy, 2021 – ★★★

A guy was born, the origins of which might be traced back to a party a few years back where these other films were in attendance: Running Man, Gamer, Ready Player One, The Matrix, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, just to name a few.  Does it’s work? Absolutely. It’s a great family-friendly summer blockbuster with […]

No Man of God, 2021 – ★★½

Quite enjoyed the dynamics of the duo. More credit to the performances than the writing, which elevated the lack of drama and conflict to a watchable fare. I suspect having the agent being portrayed as a producer took away some of the creative liberties, maybe even some truth, who knows? source https://letterboxd.com/jun6lee/film/no-man-of-god/

Bhoot Police, 2021 – ★★½

I didn’t love it, didn’t hate it, but can’t help but wish it was more than it was. It had a lot of potential in the premise, that remained unexplored from a writing standpoint. It had glimmers of genius and then there were huge conveniences too. The banter and dialogue between the brothers were fresh […]

Murder Mystery, 2019 – ★★½

I can see the inspiration of the lead bickering couple coming from Manhattan Murder Mystery, the murder in a room from And Then There Were None and tropes galore. It works standalone but doesn’t outshine any other murder mystery before you may have seen. I’m not excited about a sequel, but am sure I’ll end […]
