    Judging the judges at Cannes

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 01/02/2017

    » There was a chorus of surprise when the 69th Cannes Film Festival last Sunday awarded its top prize to Ken Loach's welfare drama I, Daniel Blake -- because the film was largely absent from the critical radar during the 12-day festival. A bigger surprise (not to say disappointment) was when the second prize went to Xavier Dolan's melodrama It's Only The End Of The World, because the film was nearly unanimously disliked for its histrionics and theatrical conceits. When the jury, led by Mad Max director George Miller, gave the prize to Dolan's film, a joke sprang up and quickly caught on, inspired by the film's title: yes, for this film to be honoured by Cannes it is the end of the world, or the end of cinema. Apocalypse now!

    » While I can't say much about the first two Warcraft games -- released in the mid-90s -- Warcraft 3 is perhaps one of the most influential video games of the 21st century, giving birth to the MOBA genre of video games and the multi-billion-dollar e-sports industry that followed it. It was also the foundation of perhaps the most successful online game in history, World Of Warcraft, which -- at its peak -- had over 12 million players paying monthly subscriptions to play it. If any video game franchise could break the trend of the horrible video game adaptation films, it should be Warcraft.

    Dragged by the heals

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 17/03/2017

    » We did it. We've gone where no other BKK lifestyle publication has gone before for a story. We went drag. Nope, we didn't just stand on the sidelines, ask questions and admire. We went in, literally, as far as you can go, and experienced it first-hand for ourselves. And who else would we entrust with all the hair glue, glitter and lip-overlining other than the one and only leading Thai drag diva extraordinaire Pangina Heals.
