    » I guess it's that time when Disney thinks traditional glass slippers are not cool for the young generation, but sneakers surely are. From the title of Disney's new musical romantic comedy, Sneakerella, you can tell it has something to do with Cinderella. Yes, it's based on the classic, but it's a new, modernised version. They gender-swap the characters and then dive into sneakerhead culture and dance music. Whether this sounds like a weird combination, well, such a movie now exists.

    A simple story of the heart

    » La Famille Bélier became my favourite film of the year as soon as I saw it for the first time in 2014. I liked it not because it was a foreign indie film or because I'm a fan of musicals, but because it was different from formulaic teen singing flicks like Pitch Perfect (2012) or Bandslam (2009), which were popular at the time. The film was a heartwarming comedy-drama that checked the boxes of a teen coming-of-age story. But who would have thought there would be a remake a few years later?

    A different kind of superhero

    Life, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 24/06/2022

    » The days of superheroes being limited to one ethnicity are over. In the past few years, it seems that Marvel and Disney have realised that audiences want more stars to look up to. Last year, we saw Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings become the latest record-breaking Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie that gave Asian actors an opportunity to be a superhero, the same that Black Panther (2018) and Captain Marvel (2019) did for black and female-led casts.

    Sandler's Hustle is a Euro step redemption tale

    Life, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 17/06/2022

    » Whether it's because he has reached a saturation point with goofy comedies, or because he's too old to lead a romantic comedy, in the past few years, Adam Sandler has turned to more mature, dramatic roles. If you've seen his ventures into indie films like Punch-Drunk Love (2002), The Meyerowitz Stories (2017) or more recently Uncut Gems (2019), you'll notice that Sandler has a dramatic side to him that's surprisingly impressive. Now Sandler's back with another dramatic turn in Hustle, a Netflix sports drama where he plays a basketball scout looking for the next great player. Hustle feels like Jerry Maguire meets Rocky. It is a heartfelt, uplifting underdog movie that also serves as a love letter to the NBA.

    Return of the icons

    Life, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 08/06/2022

    » It's been nearly two decades since the Star Wars and sci-fi movie fans were introduced to the franchise's prequel trilogy that ended with its third film Revenge Of The Sith in 2005. Fans knew that Anakin Skywalker lost to Obi-Wan Kenobi in the duel battle and left badly wounded. Yet he survived and went on to become Darth Vader, a disciple of the dark side in the original Star Wars trilogy (1977–83). This didn't stop many die-hard fans from frequent discussions and theorising about what happened in between the events of Episode III and Episode IV.
