    Breaking the law never looked so cool

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 14/06/2018

    » Reboots of larger-than-life franchises that plunk in an all-female cast are always a good idea. Why? Not because of all that feminism babble, thank you very much, but because women definitely have more fun. It was the case with Ghostbusters last year and Hollywood has done it again this time by putting female stars into the world of heists pulled by the Oceans. In this latest edition, following the three previous films directed by Steven Soderbergh, we meet Sandra Bullock as the recently paroled Debbie Ocean -- younger sister of the (maybe) deceased Danny Ocean.


    The virtuous one

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 14/04/2017

    » Liam Cunningham is quite a funny bunny -- a stark opposite of the character he is best known for portraying: Game Of Thrones' dependably virtuous knight, Ser Davos Seaworth. While in Bangkok earlier this month, he unflinchingly munched the head off fried insects at the street stall and gleefully admitted to nicking tiny props from the set every year, be it the small wooden stag or coins from Braavos. He asks the props man first of course, and most of it ends up on his daughter's "wall of awesome" in her bedroom.


    Hearts and friendships

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 04/11/2016

    » A Karan Johar film usually offers promises of glamorous locales, impossibly beautiful leads, cameos of his A-list buddies, over-the-top songs and what is supposed to be an atomic bomb of feel-goodism. He doesn't let you down within the departments of the first four, but Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (The Heart Is Complicated) is unlikely to stay with you the way his previous decade-defining works have. It's not as tear-jerking or heartwarming, but still does offer a great soundtrack that will cling to your mind unlike its messy plot. (Try keeping the waterworks in when Channa Mereya comes on. You won't.)


    Bollywood comes to town

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 17/08/2016

    » Want to try watching an Indian movie but don't quite know where to start? Now's your chance with the Indian Film Festival of Thailand, where you can relive Bollywood's biggest blockbusters for 150 baht per movie, as opposed to the 350 baht that the tickets usually cost on regular release. Perhaps better retitled the Deepika Padukone Film Festival of Thailand (she's in three of the seven films showing), some of the most popular movies from India's Tinseltown within the past three years will be showing at Paragon Cineplex from Aug 22-28. In this event hosted by MVP Entertainment, Zee Entertainment and Paragon Cineplex, the festival's opening will also see flash mob dances and interviews with Thai stuntmen who have worked in Bollywood. Prangthong Jitcharoenkul, author of India Mee Arai Ja Bok, will also be sharing her experiences while studying in India.


    Forget historical accuracy, this is all about Hrithik's abs

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 19/08/2016

    » This obviously isn't going to win any Academy Award nominations. Director Ashutosh Gowariker may have been lauded for his taxing period drama Lagaan, which earned a nomination for the Oscar's Best Foreign Language Film in 2002, but his latest film, Mohenjo Daro, is a clichéd period epic that offers a confused peek into the past of a place that is now a Unesco World Heritage site. I mean, if you want "exotic" costumes, epic sets and a hero-unknowingly-related-to-this-city plot, this is just the thing.


    Spielberg no match for Dahl

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 08/07/2016

    » If you're a fan of Roald Dahl's best-selling children's book, then it's quite likely that you'll file The BFG into the let-down list of "book-to-movie adaptations gone blah". Director Steven Spielberg is generous with mood-setting by immersing you in his beautiful visuals (heck, the movie is an hour and 58 minutes long), but it doesn't quite stir any emotion.


    Girls just wanna have fun

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 15/07/2016

    » Two colossal brands are at play here: the first being New York City's most popular ghost-catching, proton-pack-toting squad, called the Ghostbusters, and the second being Hollywood's first lady of comedy that is Melissa McCarthy. Stew the two together and it becomes the don't-miss comedy of the summer, packed with familiarly satisfying ectoplasmic gags and villains that look like cartoon marshmallows.


    What's hot and not on Game Of Thrones this season

    » After seven episodes, Life lists the things we love and hate most about the show - with some spoilers in the mix.


    King Khan still rules

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 22/04/2016

    » For some time now it's been a recurring joke that with this movie "Shahrukh Khan the actor" is back. Devoid of any hammy lines and item songs, Fan does offer a story and script that allows SRK to finally go beyond the soulless, commercial rubbish he's been dabbling in as of late (cough, Chennai Express, Dilwale) and return to the dark beginnings that has made him adored by fans from all over the world. Before becoming the king of romance and entering the undisputed realm he reigns today, he has, after all, made a name for himself by depicting a stalker, creep and psychopath.


    Out of the cave, ready to rumble

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 22/04/2016

    » With his square-rimmed black glasses, perfectly-gelled hair and tall, lanky build, Isaac Hempstead Wright looks like the geeky but cute wallflower BFF that's just dropped out of a Hollywood teen flick. Of course, it was actually dropping out of a tower -- after witnessing Operation Incest -- that he is known for, in his role as Bran Stark from the wildly-popular series Game Of Thrones.
