    Five things you need to know this week

    Muse, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 20/01/2018

    » 1.With February just around the corner, it's as good a time as any to start shopping for those all-important Valentine's Day gifts. Nothing says "I love you" like a good, warm mug of coffee in the morning, so get your loved ones a special-edition Valentine's Day mug or bottle from Starbucks, available in both plastic and ceramic. Coming in various shades of blue, pink and gold, the drinkware items will cost anywhere from 550-1,150 baht. You can find them at a Starbucks near you.


    Back to school with American Vandal

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 10/11/2017

    » When I first came across American Vandal -- the mockumentary series recently released on Netflix -- my first impression of the show was that it felt like an over-elaborate penis joke.


    Method in the madness

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 10/11/2017

    » Whether it be Hannibal Lector, Norman Bates or even the Joker, psychopaths have long been some of the most fascinating characters in all of pop culture. As terrifying as they supposedly are, there is also a mystique to their madness, one that exists on the cusp of comprehensibility, divided only by that thin, elusive border we call sanity or morality or compassion.


    All fun and games

    » To be fair, Kingsman: The Golden Circle -- the sequel to 2015's cheeky spy-parody Kingsman: The Secret Service -- manages to deliver on almost everything that made its original a surprise hit. The exaggerated sense of style, zany spy-gadgets and over-the-top fight choreography make their way from the first film, bolstered by an extended all-star cast that includes Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry and Pedro Pascal.


    Planes, trains and assorted thrills

    » Touted as an art gallery, theatre, cinema, co-working space, cafe & restaurant, design studio, exotic garden, vintage barber and private museum -- among several other creative things -- ChangChui has become the talk of the town in recent days as much for its artsy, hipsterish concept as its contribution to the massive traffic congestion in the Bang Plad area since its opening last Friday. Over the weekend it attracted thousands of visitors, shoppers, diners and selfie addicts who feasted on ChangChui's industrial chic backdrop. By last Sunday, the space suggested through its Facebook page for visitors to come by taxi, for the convenience of everyone.


    Great sequel - more action, more story

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 17/02/2017

    » The original John Wick -- released in 2014 -- was perhaps the most enjoyable, well-crafted action film I have seen in years. Despite having a paper-thin premise -- retired (but legendary) assassin John Wick goes on a rampage against an entire army of Russian gangsters for killing his dog and stealing his car -- the film succeeded thanks to its masterfully choreographed action sequences and beautifully shot scenes. If nothing else, the original John Wick proved that you really don't need much in terms of story to make a great action film.


    Now You See Me 2 well worth a look

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 10/06/2016

    » The original Now You See Me, directed by Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk, Clash Of The Titans) and released in 2013, was a pleasant surprise. Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffolo and Morgan Freeman, the "Four Horsemen" of Las Vegas magicians from the original film became one of Lionsgate Entertainment's most successful features, delighting audiences with a smart, confidently-executed mixture of fantasy and heist movie.


    Batman v Superman is a blast, but disjointed and dense

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 25/03/2016

    » Filled with explosive action, deep, heavy exposition and nearly gratuitous fan-service, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice (which I will henceforth refer to as BvS) is a film that's tough to have a definitive opinion on. While the pacing of the film can sometimes feel slightly disjointed and random -- partly due to it being a set-up for DC's planned Justice League franchise (roughly equivalent to Marvel's Avengers) -- everything still comes together with such polish that I found it enjoyable, if a bit uneven.


    Slow burn

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 01/04/2016

    » Despite having nary a sky-scraping kaiju in sight, 10 Cloverfield Lane managed to make my hair stand in a way the original 2008 found-footage monster feature never could. Featuring great acting, a brilliantly written script and impressive directing work, 10 Cloverfield Lane isn't the kind of film that uses jump-scares or freakish monstrosities to induce fear in its characters or its audience. Instead, there is an atmosphere of slow, creeping dread all throughout the film, like the anticipation of creatures around the next corner.
