    » The battle between Samsung and HTC begins again, with the launch of 2014’s flagship devices, the Galaxy S5 (GS5) and the One (M8). Between the previous incarnations, I declared the Samsung GS4 as the smartest phone over the HTC One (M7).

    » Not everyone is willing to pay 20,000 baht-plus on cutting-edge masterpieces such as the HTC One or Samsung S5. This is where the HTC Desire 816 comes in.

    Samsung's Tab S heads the field

    Life, Sithikorn Wongwudthianun, Published on 01/01/2016

    » For some years now, Samsung has been giving Apple a run for its money in the phone and tablet markets. Sometimes the Korean giant manages to outfox the American trendsetter and sometimes it can't quite pull it off. This week, we compare the two rivals' flagship tablets: the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and the iPad Air. This is (as it should be) a close race that will have supporters of both camps sitting on the edge of their seats, although, from the point of view of this reviewer, Samsung has good reason to rejoice — and all because of its showing in a department in which Apple usually excels: the display.

    Siam Square: Hi-so and now oh so high-priced

    Spectrum, Chaiyot Yongcharoenchai, Published on 01/01/2016

    » Back in the 1970s, every denim-clad Thai hipster knew about Siam Square. As the country was embracing modernity, it was a hub for film, fashion, beauty products and fine dining.

    Alice in chains

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

    » In Still Alice, a linguistics professor starts losing her grasp of language, bearing and memory. Alice (Julianne Moore) is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's, and for a person whose lifelong devotion is to words and what words can do, the disease is an existential coup. This tender, warmly-lit and empathetic film is billed as a family drama. It's also a horror story, one in which the demon inside Alice can never be defeated.

    Sleep, dreams, splendour

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

    » In Apichatpong Weerasethakul's new film, the ghosts are awake and the people are asleep. A war is being fought, but that war is invisible. Above the ground, soldiers are sleeping. Underneath, an ancient graveyard hums. At the centre of it all is a middle-aged lady, her leg damaged, her dreams interrupted, her memory luminous. She stares into the past, or maybe the future, and what she glimpses, in that limbo between sleep and life, is a cemetery of splendour.

    Gosling's directorial debut misses mark

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

    » Last year when Ryan Gosling premiered his directorial debut Lost River at Cannes Film Festival, the chorus of boos, ridicule and cynical derision flooded the post-screening tweets and reviews. "Crapocalypse", some succinctly quipped, plus "insufferably conceited" and "folie de grandeur". Referring to Gosling's previous film as an actor, critic Jonathan Romney tweeted: "Let's see [if] God forgives this."

    Cannes you see it?

    Off to a quiet start

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

    » For its first two days, the 68th Cannes Film Festival hasn't managed to turn up the real heat. The world's most famous tapis rouge — or red carpet — of the Grande Theatre Lumiere might be set ablaze by the stars of the furiously hellish Mad Max: Fury Road, showing Out of Competition, but talking points early in this cine-circus include Catherine Deneuve's caricature on the cover of Charlie Hebdo and Salma Hayek gnawing at a sea dragon's heart cooked by a virgin. Otherwise, café punditry keeps up the Cannes tradition of guessing the Palme d'Or winner without anyone having seen all the contestants. Elsewhere on the Boulevard de la Croisette, things remained pretty underwhelming.
