The Wailing

Genre: Mystery thriller drama
Malaysia Release Date: 13 October 2016

Currently holding a perfect 100% score out of over 40 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, this Korean film needs almost no introduction. Written and directed by award-winner Na Hong Jin (The Yellow Sea, The Chaser), this suspenseful mystery drama (and some say horror thriller) tells a story of a policeman who’s forced to solve recent cases of strange deaths and illnesses that started as soon as a weird Japanese arrives in the village. There has been a strong buzz about this film on social media since its release in Korea in May and I can’t wait to catch this one.


Max Steel

Genre: Superhero
Malaysia Release Date: 20 October 2016

It’s a movie remake of the superhero animated series based on a Mattel toy line. I’ve never seen the cartoon and the origin story seems typical but it does seem like a no brainer generic fun that I’d enjoy. According to what I read about it, it promises a more in-depth origin story and character development and it’s directed by Stewarrd Hendler, who did the 2012 award-winning Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn web series, and written by Christopher Yost (Thor: Dark World). If you have kids who’re probably 12 and under, I think they’re going to be excited about this movie just as I was excited when the first Power Rangers and Guyver movie came out back then.


Disney’s Moana

Genre: Animated musical fantasy, comedy adventure
Malaysia Release Date: 1 December 2016

A young girl teams up with a demigod in an adventure to save her people from a “danger that’s coming” — seems simple and familiar but it’s directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the legendary duo directors who brought us Disney classics such as Aladdin (1992) and The Little Mermaid (1989) — this alone convinces me that it has potential to be simply magical. Voice cast includes Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Central Intelligence, San Andreas) and the girlfriend you wish she’s as hot as, former Pussycat Doll, Nicole Scherzinger. The trailer doesn’t impress much but neither did Zootopia‘s and that turned out to be one of the best animated films I’ve ever seen. Let’s hope Moana is going to be as surprisingly great as well.
