    Learning the rules of the game

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 30/09/2015

    » Trent Kusters was playing Red Dead Redemption when he came upon a moment that he will never forget. In the 2010 adventure game (released for the PS3 and Xbox360), a group of abominable snowmen have been abducting and eating children, much to the horror of the locals. So when he came across one in the vast wild-west setting of the game, Kusters knew exactly what to do.

    » It's the most glamorous event in the film industry. The annual Academy Awards ceremony is right around the corner, officially slated to take place on Monday morning Thai time. With so many quality films being nominated -- and the inevitable drama that unfolds with acceptance speeches every year -- this year's Academy Awards is shaping up to be an exciting one.

    Kawaii in Krungthep

    » Nowadays, you'd be hard pressed to walk five steps without overhearing someone gushing about their favourite BNK48 idol, or humming the band's indelible earworm Koisuru Fortune Cookie. The all-girl group has emerged as the pop sensation of the moment in Thailand.

    To thunderous applause

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 03/11/2017

    » Earlier this year, I had the chance to review another Marvel Studios Film, Spiderman: Homecoming. In that review, I described the film as more of a teenage flick with a sprinkling of superhero glamour, a trait that added a much-needed breath of fresh air to the usual Marvel film formula, one that threatens to outstay its welcome as the studio churns out multiple films each year. The same could be said for Thor: Ragnarok, the latest Marvel feature to arrive in cinemas today.

    Keeping it real

    » Dedicated to the protection of victims of armed conflicts around the world, with three Nobel Prizes to its name, the ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) is the oldest and most venerated humanitarian organisation in the world. More recently, it has also become the first humanitarian organisation in the world to internally utilise video-game technology in its operations.

    And a child shall lead them

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 09/06/2017

    » In 1989, the world was sent reeling following the horrifying massacre at Tiananmen Square, when the Communist regime of the People's Republic of China (as ironic today as it was all those years ago) ruthlessly mowed down hundreds of unarmed pro-democracy protesters. The massacre sent a stern message to the people of China as well as the entire world from the regime: the Communist Party will not be swayed by dissension of any kind, and will eliminate those standing in its way.

    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.

    Waiting on Vol 3

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 28/04/2017

    » Prior to 2014, most of us have probably never even heard of Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy series, let alone expect to see a high-budget film adaptation of it become universally praised. Filled with the humour, heart and the visual spectacles Marvel has always been so good at, director James Gunn captured lightning with the first film. Marvel seems to agree, which is why Vol 2 was produced, arriving in Thai theatres earlier this week.

    Out Of The Shadows is a no-brainer

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 03/06/2016

    » As I watched the press-screening for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows, I couldn't help but think again and again how much I would've enjoyed this movie if I was 13. Ninjas? Sleek, CGI-characters? Megan Fox? If I was 13, this could've been one of my favourite films of the year. If.

    Hunger Games ends with a bang

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 20/11/2015

    » The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 marks the end of what has now become perhaps one of the most prolific young adult novel series ever, and holy heck is it good. While I wasn't a fan in the beginning, The Hunger Games is one of those series that seems to mature with its audience, now a far cry from the days Katniss was in the lush woods of the first Games arena.
