    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 05/01/2018

    » Full disclosure: I adore the Assassin's Creed video game franchise. As such, it probably isn't much of a leap to say I thoroughly enjoyed Assassin's Creed the film, what with its stylishly gratifying action scenes, superhuman feats of parkour and nerdy, sci-fi pseudoscience, lifted right out of the games thanks to the participation of Ubisoft, the company responsible for both the development and publishing of the video games.

    Poetry and pollution

    Business, Anchalee Kongrut, Published on 09/05/2014

    » Environmental enthusiasts might be caught by surprise. By The River (Sai Nam Tid Chua) is a documentary film based on the toxic poisoning at Klity village in Kanchanaburi province, but it’s not a “green” film in the conventional sense. Your befuddlement is thus understandable. The film is a surprising departure from “save-the-world” films driven by serious content, grim footage, long interviews and heavy messages, if not cartoon animation that preaches urban kids to hug trees and denounce capitalists (remember The Lorax and Dr Seuss?).


    Almost Real

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 12/10/2012

    » The whole setup is so wacky and improbable that it can only dovetail into one thing: it could be true. Or as true as a Hollywood movie could get. In order to save six Americans during the Teheran hostage crisis, the CIA sends in an agent posing as a sci-fi film producer looking for a location. He'd breeze into Iran, kiss the ring of Khomeini's culture minister, and rescue the six, not sneaking or smuggling them out, but waltzing them through the falcon-grip of a tightly surveilled airport with legit boarding passes.
