No, I'm just terribly busy with work the last few days, and in days to come as well. And it just so happens that I've got the reviews all up for the major theatrical releases this week in Singapore.
So in order of Merit, here goes!
1. Sell Out!
Absolutely one of the most hilarious flicks I've seen this year. My movie of choice from this year's Singapore International Film Festival because it's a breath of fresh air from all the stifling arty-farty flicks, this Malaysian film is a must watch! You can watch the Q&A session from SIFF here.
2. Star Trek
J.J. Abrams had got this reboot done right, despite the need to navigate the tremendous amount of canonical history from the long running franchise. A younger Enterprise crew to ensure enough legs to continue the cinematic franchise, non-Trekkers will also find enough bait here to be hooked.
3. Kabei - Our Mother
Veteran Japanese director Yoji Yamada puts aside his Samurai sword, and is a force to be reckoned with in his ode to Mothers, in time for Mother's Day too in its local release.
Watched this during its world premiere at last year's Tokyo International Film Festival, one of my favourites at the festival and a recommended watch for the leads Ekin Cheng and Karina Lam's performances. Check out the press conference here.
5. The Ramen Girl
Passable but below average. Wait for the DVD if you must. And for Brittany Murphy fans only who cannot get enough of her pout.
Normal service will resume soon...
