Falcon Picture

Warkop DKI is a legend in Indonesia film Industry. The group had released 34 films from 1979-1994. The title was so catchy and the overall film is so funny.

Those are the solid reason why every film featured Warkop DKI can grab many audiences. Unfortunately, only Indro still exists in Indonesia Entertainment Industry. He is now judges of Stand Up Comedy Indonesia with the mission to empower¬†young comedians throughout the country. More than that, he is also the producer of …

When you talk about Film industry, you must think about Hollywood. It is common to be like that because all of the technology we see on big screen are developed there. All of the CGI, Green Screen, Explosion or any beautiful special effect existed because the directors, actors and producers are brave enough to innovate.

James McAvoy and Christian Bale are two actors that I admire a lot. They always do their best while playing their roles. You can see how good Bale in The Machinist and Batman trilogy.

Film School Project

Have you watch The Girl On The Train? This is a good film actually, but still, there are people out there (I mean film critics) who think this film sucks. I do not why but most of them do not like Rachel and her characterization. I have to admit, Rachel is typically useless woman. She just do her daily routine with no purpose. She commutes everyday with the same train just to see her ex-husband’s life. More than that, She often imagine she had perfect and happy marriage. That imagination is deep rooted inside her mind. She sometimes cannot differ …

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, When A Clone Becomes the Original

The Action Pixel

Frequently, the game-adapted film will have negative reviews, even for the film I prefer like Assassins Creed. I do not know, I think people who played the game expect the same excitement and fun while watching the film. But, it is nearly impossible to achieve that. It is much better to develop the original story rather than adapting the game-play into the big screen. Resident Evil is successfully applying this strategy. The film franchise is loosely based on the Capcom survival horror video game series Resident Evil. And you will see the result, six film installments since 2002. This is …
