FlixChatter Review: Jurassic World (2015)

It's been twenty two years since the release of Jurassic Park, the phenomenal sci-fi thriller that's still as timeless as ever when I saw it recently. So even though Steven Spielberg is no longer in the directing chair (but still served as executive producer), I was still anticipating my return to Isla Nublar. This time …

Music Break: Jurassic Park Soundtrack (1993)

Well, I saw Jurassic World last night. It was one of my most-anticipated movies of the year and one of the most evocative thing to me is STILL John Williams' score. It's one of my top 10 favorite scores from this legendary composer, out of a long list of phenomenal work. The score played within …

Music Break: Five favorite scores from sci-fi movies about robots

As Ted just reviewed Chappie this weekend, he mentioned that the only thing he liked in the movie was Hans Zimmer's score.

Weekend Viewing Roundup and The Book Thief review

How's your weekend everyone? Hope it was a good one. I skipped the cinema this weekend and opted to rewatch Man of Steel as I finally got my Blu-ray last week. I still like it but unfortunately the replayability value of the BD is probably not going to be very high, well for one, the …

Music Break: 1995 Sabrina’s Soundtrack

I just realized I haven't done a Music Break since last November! Well I'm feeling rather melancholy tonight so I watched a little bit of the 1995 version of Sabrina. I adore this movie... it's just sooo enchanting. It's a modern-day Cinderella story of sort. Sabrina Fairchild, the chauffeur of the billionaire Larrabee family, is …

Music Break: John William’s iconic Superman theme

The worst thing about the Man of Steel movie is how long the wait it. The movie isn't scheduled to arrive until June 14, 2013. Bah, that's a year away, so right now, I'd be happy if I'd see a trailer, which will likely arrive around Comic-Con in two weeks, yay! I'd love to see …
