Okay. I’ve waited for more than four months. Battle of Surabaya DID NOT make it to Bali’s cinemas. Luckily, fate works in mysterious ways. Just today, on my flight from Jakarta – Bali, it turned out that Garuda Indonesia had Battle of Surabaya in the in-flight entertainment system. The bad news is, a pilot is gonna […]Read More Battle of Surabaya: So Good Yet So Bland
This is gonna be just a short post. I promise. Besides, I have better things to do. So during this week, a number of links appeared on my Facebook news feed. They linked to download sites offering pirated (some say “leaked”) Stand by Me, Doraemon HD Rips. As of current, I am unaware if the links […]Read More Stand By Piracy, Doraemon?
Yesterday, I finally had the chance to watch what was peddled to me as a “compilation of the best Doraemon episodes”. And let me tell, it was worth every penny.

So, I did what I had to do. I went to the movies and bought […]Read More Comic 8 : Indonesian Comedy Comeback
AAL IZZ WELL!! It’s the holidays and I’ve been digging up and watching old movies hidden in my hard disk drive. I’ve had this particular movie for quite a while now; I think it’s been 3 years ago since I copied it from my friend’s computer. Now, I don’t watch that many Hindi films; they’re […]Read More 3 Idiots : Find the Idiot In You!
I’m the one doing this particular movie review because I’m the one who actually had the money to pay for an overpriced movie ticket in Bali. And also because I’ve seen District 9 and loved it. I also loved this piece of art, although District 9 was a bit better. TL;DR: A great sci-fi movie […]Read More Elysium : Another Masterpiece from the Director of District 9
