    Witchers & monsters

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 27/12/2019

    » The Witcher, which was released last week on Netflix, follows Geralt of Rivia, played by the ridiculously good-looking Henry Cavill, a mutated monster-hunter who prefers keeping to himself though destiny has other plans. We attended the show's fan event in Manila, the Philippines, where we sat down with the show's showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, who has also worked on The Umbrella Academy and Daredevil, to talk about The Witcher.

    When monsters attack

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 10/03/2017

    » Kong: Skull Island seems like it tries -- and largely fails -- to present a serious, deep message, even though it often veers into the campy territory so many monster films seem to occupy. Most of the characters -- of which there are unnecessarily many -- are completely devoid of personality or even purpose, getting introduced only to eventually become monster-snacks, offering absolutely nothing to the plot beyond creating a false sense of mortality for the obvious band of destined survivors. The plot, as anyone familiar with King Kong's lore can surmise, is also nothing new, and is actually quite similar to the Peter Jackson-directed King Kong's (2005) plot of a group of outsiders surviving on a hostile island dominated by the giant ape.

    Low-budget veneer is film's main attraction

    Life, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 27/09/2019

    » One of people's biggest fears is to be deemed an outcast, or freak. And the theme about suffering from being different, hiding away from authority, or discovering hidden special powers is the sort of storyline that's been told countless times from the Marvel universe, superheroes and monsters movies, where the line between good and bad is hazy grey.

    Fierce and pitiful

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 20/03/2019

    » Krasue is a Thai ghost beside whom vampires -- and other blood-lusting Western monsters -- pale in comparison. Basically a detached head of a woman floating around in the dark, lit up by a phosphorescent glow from her still-beating heart, and with her bloody entrails dangling below the head like an infested creeper, krasue feeds on, naturally, filth, blood, corpses and carcasses. Sometimes it's compared, for the sake of convenience, with Gothic-era will-o'-the-wisp or jack-o'-lantern. But seriously, please, that is a gross under-characterisation that discounts the supreme grotesqueness of krasue, born by the pulpy fantasy of our equatorial folklorists.
