Today, we are officially stepped into the month of December and heading towards the festive season, a season of giving. I believed it will be an action-packed month for most of us in the form of year end travelling, shopping (for the gifts), gatherings and feasting. Life is meant to live at the present moment as we can’t relive yesterday and pre-live tomorrow, so, enjoy your live NOW!
For a movie buff like me, one of the thing that I am looking forward to is catching the blockbuster movies to be released in December. I’ve done a bit of research and have since shortlisted 3 movies releasing in December which I thought are worth watching. Seriously!
So, here we go…
1. Mortal Engines (6th Dec 2018)
Director : Christian Rivers
Casts: Hugo Weaving, Hera Hilmar, Jihae
Sypnosis: A mysterious young woman named Hester Shaw joins forces with Anna Fang, a dangerous outlaw with a bounty on her head, and Tom Natsworthy, an outcast from London, to lead a rebellion against a giant predator city on wheels (from IMDB).
My take: Adapted from Phillip Reeve’s novels with the same name (first of the four novels), I like its focus on the futuristic and steampunk version of London. Definitely worth a watch especially for sci-fi fans.
2. Aquaman (13th Dec 2018)
Director : James Wan
Casts: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman
Sypnosis: Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and be a hero to the world. (from IMDB).
My take: This year’s only DC superhero movie. As it is directed by James Wan (whom brought us Furious 7, Conjuring and Insidious franchise etc.), I have confident that this spin-off will be cool!
Sypnosis: On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie, on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. (from IMDB).
My take: This spin-off from Transformers franchise looks refreshingly good. Definitely worth paying for the movie tics.
