Tornado on fire in Into the Storm movie still

A semi-found footage ripoff of Twister with improved special effects, higher damage toll & unengaging characters


High Fujita-scaled tornadoes, storm chasers who've been waiting all their lives for such a weather, shelters, victims, cool storm chaser toys, character seeing the inside of a tornado at the end - how is this not called a remake of the 1996 film Twister? Directed by Steven Quale (Final Destination 5) and written by John Swetnam (Step Up All In, Evidence), Into the Storm takes place in the town of Silverton, where it is ravaged an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. Single mother-storm tracker Allison Stone (Sarah Wayne Callies) follows Pete (Matt Walsh), a persistent and seemingly heartless storm chaser, to the town to find the biggest tornado around and document it. She later meets a macho single dad-teacher Gary Morris (Richard Armitage), whose looking for his missing son. Together they must find a way to survive while getting what they want.

GSC now offers D-BOX motion seats at its cinemas

D-BOX GSC

"Your Movie in Motion" at Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) with D-BOX seats

Review


It hasn't been that long since GSC brought Dolby Atmos surround sound system to Malaysia, now they've invested around RM500,000 to offer a new cinematic experience for moviegoers: the D-BOX. It kind of sounds wrong (it's my D in a box~) and it has a lot to do with vibration (oooh my~) but what it really is almost completes what some may call a full 4D movie experience.

Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014 - Marvel)

Guardians of the Galaxy movie still full group

Marvel goes sci-fi with crude humour but not without heart in this adaptation of a less popular comic title

Standout performance by Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket the racoon


Finally, Marvel brings audience away from the typical alien invasion premise to the outer space for some science fiction action. Not only that, the heroes are a hilarious bunch of criminals. For the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's a much needed vacation completely away from Earth while developing the background and super villain Thanos for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).

Movie Review: Hercules (2014 - Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson)

Dwayne Johnson The Rock as Hercules 2014 movie still

"The Rock" as the anti-fantasy version of Hercules is surprisingly more than watchable


An anti-fantasy twist to the classical Greek mythology's divine hero for the first time ever in Hercules film and TV adaptations. Very unexpected, I have to say, and if I didn't watch this, I would had continue to think that Disney's forgettable Hercules (1997) was close to being faithful to the origins but I guess I should've known better. Anyway, I did not regret spending my time and money watching this on a day I literally had nothing better to do.

UFC on Fox 12: Lawler defeats Brown via decision

Robbie Lawler punch Matt Brown in UFC on Fox 12

Robbie "Ruthless" Lawler ends Matt Brown's 7-fight winning streak


Matt Brown (19-12) looked weak and not very confident at the beginning despite being the one overweight for this UFC Welterweight Championship title eliminator bout, swinging half-hearted hooks that'd never catch Robbie Lawler (24-10), until he landed one to Lawler's chin but Lawler managed to land one of his own on counter. Brown found his range and began throwing some precise combos and elbows before taking Lawler  down with a trip. Both eventually got back up and it was quite a close fight, Brown utilising his length and Lawler with his patience and explosive power. They started kicking each other a lot but it was Lawler who seemed to be troubling Brown with his body kicks.
