    How to make transit truly for the masses

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 28/03/2016

    » Monday is always the source of predicaments. Last Monday, especially, was chaos for many Bangkokians. No, we're not talking about Gen Prayut's birthday, even though it fell on the same day.  What happened last Monday was the infamous Airport Rail Link (ARL) incident. And all the news and headlines have already informed you of how over 700 passengers were stuck inside a train for an hour due to electrical problems, leaving them practically suffocated under Bangkok's trapped heat.

    Don't lose your cool

    Brunch, Michael Ruffles, Published on 10/04/2016

    » When it's this hot and humid, Netflix and chill really does mean watching House of Cards with a cold drink in your hand and an ice pack on your neck. It's too sticky for anything else.

    Will the best films win the Oscars?

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 26/02/2016

    » The Oscar night is also the Oscar-bashing night. It was always the night (or morning, in our time zone) of constant bemoaning and condescension, because the Academy voters, like most voters, always get it wrong, at least to million others around the world who believe, in our collective delirium, that we have a stake in this pageant taking place somewhere in Los Angeles. Things have taken a turn for the worse with the snap judgement made possible by social media; now the outrage and disbelief are so raw since they're aired in real time, on Facebook and Twitter, like I did last year when I was convinced that it was against every law of nature that Birdman, a well-crafted display of pretension and self-obsession, won over the more delicate Boyhood.

    The ultimate anti-hero

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 12/02/2016

    » From the very opening minutes of the film, it is made abundantly clear that Deadpool -- a character in the latest among Marvel's long slate of upcoming superhero films -- is not like any other superhero. While most other superheroes would be wracked with guilt from killing even a bad guy, Deadpool maims, beheads, dismembers and even disembowels them with joy, sprouting jokes without skipping a beat. He's weird, crass, violent and even downright sadistic in all the best ways, and that is exactly why he is such a joy to see in action, even if the film around him is only average at best.

    Girls just wanna have fun

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 22/01/2016

    » Two transhookers are not looking for love and warmth on Christmas Eve around the crummy blocks of Los Angeles. In Sean Baker's hilarious, rambunctious and surprisingly sweet a-crappy-day-in-the-life-of-African-American-streetwalkers, they are looking for horny customers, and for their slick pimp and his new lover (who's "a fish", derogatory slang for real women). It's also a surprise that Tangerine, a guerilla-style indie film shot entirely on iPhones, has made its way to Thai cinemas (only at SF), and those keen to sample an unusual flavour of high-spirited wacky comedy with its heart in the right place, this is the one to go for this weekend.
