Opinion Battles Round 10

Favourite Asian Language Film

Asia has given us plenty of brilliant films many have given the Western world some of the most popular films in film history. We have Studio Ghibli which can battle Disney for stunning animated movies, we have also had horror films which have redefined the genre. There is also Bollywood which is easily just as profitable as Hollywood.

Train to Busan

Train to Busan from South Korea is my pick for this because I was simply blown away by the non-stop action horror going on throughout the film. We get a zombie horror that could be put in the same…

Fantasia Festival: Train to Busan (2016)

Its not a common occurrence for me to repost a blog but the past weekend, we rewatched Train to Busan and took a moment to look over the review I wrote when I saw it at Fantasia Festival last summer. It was absolutely fantastic in the second viewing with the same thrills and actually, I’m thinking its even more perfect the second time around. A must-see zombie film if you haven’t seen it yet!

Tranquil Dreams

Continuing with a incredibly final showdown in the second consecutive day at Fantasia starts with a late morning screening of the North American premiere of Korean zombie film, Train to Busan. Those of you who know me know that I enjoy zombie films a lot. In fact, they are almost always entertaining to watch. Train to Busan caught our attention immediately and we had to add it into our rundown no matter what. Even if it meant going for the late screening the night before and waking up early to see this, not to mention standing under the scorching morning sun which was nearing 30 degrees Celsius. It was not pleasant but in our hearts, we believed that it would be worth it.

Predator

Predator was one of the very first adult action movies I ever saw and while it definitely isn’t the best movie from 1987 it is easily one of the most fun movies from the year. We get Arnold Schwarzenegger facing off against an alien creature with better weapons then him in the middle of the jungle. A…

Liar Liar movie poster

I would like to firstly apologise to the fans of great cinema, and the professional bloggers who will be discussing the fantastic movies made and released back in the 90’s. I’m not here to do that, I’m afraid. Instead, I’d like to talk about my all time favourite movies from that decade, which is when I was still…
