    Down with comics

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 21/08/2015

    » From the 1970s onwards, a huge number of Thai children have grown up reading Japanese comic books that formed a big part of their pop-cultural upbringing. Thai publisher Vibulkij led the charge by becoming the first to actually acquire licenses to publish comic books in Thailand in 1992. Adopting the Japanese model of releasing weekly magazines containing single chapters from various series, Vibulkij launched Friday, Thailand's first weekly manga magazine. These magazines gave readers the advantage of reading ahead of the collected volumes, of which only several were released each year for each series.

    Anorexia laid bare

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 03/08/2017

    » At times, To The Bone -- Netflix's new original film -- is one of those films that is insightful to the point of being uncomfortable. Centred on a young woman's battle with anorexia, the film occasionally presents a refreshingly honest and realistic take on mental health, offering surprisingly poignant moments that should speak to anyone who has experienced the trials of mental illness in themselves or those they care about. On the other hand, the film is also incredibly uneven, filled with underdeveloped characters and an unfocused plot. The result is a film that isn't so much enjoyable as it is occasionally interesting, though it does require a fair amount of understanding and acceptance when it comes to the irrationality of mental illness.

    Not-so-great expectations

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 14/04/2017

    » As the old saying goes, "too much of a good thing is a bad thing". Fast 8: Fate Of The Furious -- the latest entry to the long-running action/racing franchise -- is an apt example of this phrase, a film that tries so hard to outdo itself the results border on the satirical. While the Fast And Furious films have always managed to maintain their popularity through escalation of everything, from the action choreography to the conflict and the stakes, Fast 8 seems to have gone just a hair too far, with characters performing incredulous feats that wouldn't look out of place in a Marvel film.
