star_wars_posterSTAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS
(USA 2015) Top 10 *****
Directed by J.J. Abrams

Review by Gilbert Seah

The film world has finally gone crazy. Disney and Lucasfilm has enforced a world embargo on film reviews at 3.01 (yes, to the very second) on Wednesday December 16th. The film premiered Monday evening in Hollywood and for press, which includes this fortunate reviewer, Tuesday morning. No one had any idea of the venues for Monday’s screenings (3 separate theatres) till the last minute. Sales on Amazon of the old STAR WARS films rocketed 400%. Pre-sales of tickets have not seen numbers like this since the beginning of time, in a galaxy far, far away!

The hype on TV and anticipation have been great. The studios made press hush up on spoilers. And after seeing the film, one will…

THE HATEFUL EIGHT (USA 2015) Top 10 *****
Directed by Quentin Tarrantino
Starring: Channing Tatum, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kurt Russell, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Zoe Bell, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern

Review by Gilbert Seah

Though not his best film (I reserve that for INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS), Tarrantino’s second western after DJANGO UNCHAINED is my personal best film of 2015. This is a director in top form, who knows his material and how to write a good script and direct with surprises around very corner. His film is almost perfect in every department from music to cinematography to acting to sets and costumes.

THE HATEFUL EIGHT is set some years after the Civil War in Wyoming, and revolves around eight strangers who seek refuge in a stagecoach stopover called Minnie’s Haberdashery on a mountain pass during a blizzard.

When the film opens, John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell) is…
