Brilliant local & international work of art and performances showcased in Kuala Lumpur

Entomo y Otros performed in the Black Box


Kakiseni International Arts Festival 2014, presented by Prudential Assurance, brought Art to the People indeed last weekend until Malaysia Day (12 - 16 September) at Pavilion KL. When we say art, it doesn't necessarily only mean paintings. At the festival, a diverse range of artistic expression were showcased, which included music, theater, lyrical poetry and street performances from award-winning international acts and local artists. It was a real eye opener for me.

Movie Review: The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

purge anarchy masked men movie still

Sequel kicks it up a notch by going from the home invasion to out in the open for some fun, no-brainer, thrilling action

Actor Frank Grillo shows that he can perform in the leading role


This is not a direct sequel to the first film but the premise is the same where the rather bizarre Annual Purge is held every year in the US. In this 12 hours from 7pm to 7am, all crimes are allowed by law as a gift by the totalitarian government as a right for all citizens to "Purge" to "cleanse their own souls". With the same director and writer James DeMonaco, The Purge has moved from home invasion horror to out in the open on the streets in Anarchy.

Converse CONS Project KL happening tomorrow!

A Walk Among the Tombstones liam neeson movie still

A generic crime detective thriller that attempts to be carried to success by Taken star


Liam Neeson returns in yet another film about girls being taken and him go finding the bad guys. And yes, he does some bad ass phone conversations with the antagonists as well. Based on a 1992 novel, the film's about a private detective who's hired by a drug dealer to hunt down the people who brutally murdered his wife. During his investigation, he learns that it was not the first time that these cruel men have committed such crimes and left uncaught by the police. The story is set before the year 2000.

Japanese Film Festival 2014 Malaysia movie reviews


Japanese Foundation KL didn't put me in the loop for this year's Japanese Film Festival (JFF) Malaysia but Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) were very kind to help get me the details and took the trouble to pass me a few complimentary passes to catch some of the films. It's going to be over soon in Klang Valley, but for those in Penang, Sabah and Sarawak, be ready 'cause JFF 2014 will be making its stop there soon!

ONE FC 20: Moraes wins Flyweight title, head stomps spark controversy

Inaugural ONE FC Flyweight Champion Adriano Moraes & Victor Cui ONE FC 20 Rise of Kingdoms Cambodia

ONE FC: Rise of the Kingdom - Adriano Moraes crowned inaugural ONE FC World Flyweight Champion, head stomp incidents force unfamiliar refereeing decisions


History has been made again for the ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC). Held at the Koh Pich Theater in Phnom Penh, this marked the first ONE FC event in Cambodia which featured the first ever ONE FC World Flyweight Championship bout. From what I read, it's been a night of mostly first rounders besides the the main event and co-main event, both of which finished in the second round. No idea why it wasn't broadcast live outside of that country but fortunately, some of the fights were uploaded to YouTube.

Movie Review: Initial D Legend 1: Awakening (2014)

Initial D Legend 1 Awakening 2014 movie still AE86 Trueno

New Initial D the Movie Legend 1: Awakening offers hastened retelling of the anime, with race sequences in 2D absent Eurobeat


Initial D - perhaps one of the most iconic manga/anime titles of all time, the one that's responsible for gaining mainstream interest on street car drifting, is rebooted into this full-featured animated film... well, sort of. This supposed "movie" is split into three parts, with this one, Legend 1: Awakening, to be the first third of it. That explains why its running time is only 60 minutes long (it's actually lesser than an hour) but it doesn't quite justify it being released to big screens with regular pricing for the tickets. But if you're an old fan like myself, seeking for a nostalgic retelling of the story, action and mild "ecchi", I guess you wouldn't mind it that much.
