Pengabdi Setan. Joko Anwar memang nama yg tidak bisa disepelekan di industri perfilman Indonesia. Meskipun film yg dibuat hampir pasti bukan tipe film komersil yg mengejar jumlah penonton jutaan tapi dengan cerita yg gajelas. Film ini dibangun dengan platform horror model Amerika pada umumnya. Rumah tua, terisolasi, dua lantai, anak kecil, dan ahli spiritual (yg di film ini hanya sebagai bumbu pemanis). Separo awal teknik horror nya jg berbau ala James Wan, banyaknya jumpscare. Namun separo akhir justru beralih ke ala Walking Dead. Apalah film horror tanpa intensitas musiknya. Suasana musik mencekam sudah dimainkan sejak awal, tapi entah kenapa di fase klimaks terakhir saya kurang dapat merasakannya lagi. Film horror akhir2 ini lebih menonjolkan akting anak2 kecil. Dan karakter Boni dan Ian cukup kuat disini. Ian yg lucu saat tanpa suara, tp begitu ada suara nya terdengar aneh malah. Yang mengganggu disini hanya wig Dimas Aditya yg seolah2 potongan anak 80an. Satu lagi yg paling mengganggu dan menakutkan, body Tara Basro, ugh, She's damn hot af. Secara keseluruhan, Joko Anwar berhasil membuat film horror yang membuat anda membenci bunyi lonceng di malam hari. Yang pasti level film ini sudah sejajar dengan horror2 Hollywood itu. Dan ending misteriusnya itu, sepertinya akan ada trilogi lagi, atau ini bagian dr trilogi yang lalu? Nanti malam saya akan coba tonton versi asli Pengabdi Setan sebagai perbandingan. #PengabdiSetan #moviereview #zemview

Annabelle 2 : Creation. Yap as it titled, this is prequel of Annabelle we know, which is spin-off of The Conjuring series. Yap it's already that far. I even dont remember Annabelle movie story. Cause they all seems the same. Anyway, this prequel told us background story on how Annabelle "born", but not really, the main story is just a line dialogue of the main character almost in the end. It, still, about old american house far away from anywhere (for real, who the hell want to live in place like that), pastor and nun, childrens (who always curious), and the doll(s). Minus the paranormal. Even has the same background, but this one still has its bite. The jump scare, and scoring, still make you curse a lot. Oldmen character isnt dominant, but Janice and Linda is very good. That little Linda is cute. Still, a good Horror to scare you. And also there are easteregg a photograph of The Nuns, maybe for the next Valak-based spinoff. #Annabelle #creation #Conjuring #moviereview #zemview

Spiderman : Homecoming. Finally a fresh spidey! You won't meet uncle Ben again, or accident with spider bite. Instead it welcome you with vlog (a film by Peter Parker). It really is this generation Spidey. The plot is good, a bit boring in the middle. But it actually good to show teenager how to survive with your own strength, without gadgets. Vulture, Keaton, is most heart-ful villain of Marvel so far. And that (almost) twisting story somehow bring me to his side. Maybe all this wreck is just Peter cleaning up his sht, maybe Vulture was all right, all logic. Aunt May is nice, they even just call her May, charming May. Many footages and easter eggs. Liz is lovely. And MJ, she actually there all this time, mm not really my fav. She's just...too messy. And Mr. Stark and his spidey suit gift is awesome. And Pepper! And Happy Hogan too. They're still at their best. Long life Marvel! (That Marvel Studio opening with Spidey old theme song also best). #spiderman #spidermanhomecoming #marvel #moviereview #zemview

Critical Eleven. Wah sudah lama banget gak nulis. IG Story bikin orang makin males nulis, kalo ada 'flash thought' tinggal foto dan kasi tulisan dikit, dan dahaga self-existence generasi millenial sudah terpuaskan. Cukup banyak film dan serial yang terlewati tanpa tulisan pemikiran pribadi. Kali ini coba menulis lagi film lokal ini. Ditonton di hari pertama Ramadhan bersama orang terkasih (Sial gak kebagian Guardian begitu pulang Sby udah closed di semua theater), film ini sebenarnya memiliki cerita yang sangat simple. Tokohnya hanya tokoh utama bersama sahabat dan keluarga (+ pembantu yg diperankan Aci pemenang SUCA). Tapi semua tokoh memiliki perannya masing2, sedikit banyak membangun hubungannya dg kedua tokoh utama, Ale dan Anya. Konfliknya pun hanya satu. Seputar hubungan suami istri dan calon anak yang diidamkan. Namun dengan konflik sesimpel itu sudah cukup membuat rollercoaster perasaan penontonnya. Apalagi kalo ditonton oleh pasangan muda yg baru menikah, ato pasangan yg berencana utk menikah. Memang pasar film ini tdk menyasar abg labil yg bakal galau dg cerita cinta segitiga dan sebagainya. Yang bersinar di film ini menurut saya justru dari Adinia Wirasti sebagai Anya. Mulai jadi wanita mandiri, berubah menjadi istri yang lovely, hingga jadi (calon) ibu yang remuk redam. Adinia benar-benar memberikan feel dalam film ini. Beda degan Reza Rahadian sebagai Ale, yang menurut saya entah kenapa masih terlihat intonasi Habibie nya. Reza belum sepenuhnya berhasil keluar dari tokoh Habibie. Secara keseluruhan, layak sekali untuk ditonton. Dan kalo anda menunggu tayangannya muncul di layar kaca, siap2 saja banyak adegan yang disensor, there're alot of kisses. #criticaleleven #moviereview #zemview

Moonlight. Okay this movie is Oscar best picture of this year. But i just dont enjoy it that much. This movie is good, but not the best and don't leave any memorable scene. For me the best part is the first (i. little). Little and Blue is best. Mahershala, stolen the show (and Oscar) with a very few screen time (although I like him more as Cottonmouth). The other two part, and the gay part didn't steal my memory. Still a good movie. Congratulation for The Oscar. #moonlight #moviereview #zemview

Manchester by The Sea. It's a pure drama. And quieted one. You'll probably fall asleep or getting bored. But it's a deep movie. About years broken man as an uncle, have to take care his new broken nephew boy. Affleck is awsome as a broken man. Beautiful scenery. Perfect phase. Just feel it. As him. His broken heart. Really a deep one. #manchesterbythesea #moviereview #zemview

Arrival. Science fiction, and Alien, in a whole different way. Scifi movie usually give a focus on the spaceventure, alien wars, high-tech, and so on. But this movie give a new perspective. How if Alien teach us to be more human, more socially unite, through universal language. I like the idea. Picking woman with 'weapon' as a tool to teach us. I like a movie where you still wondering what the meaning after you finish watching. The curious feel where you have to research and give opinion of what you get and what others get. After reading here and there, i end up on this line. Non-linear time is not a good thing. How will you continue your life if you already know the end of your story, the good and hurt part. Thank God we're only human with just a linear time to live. Wondering what will we face tomorrow is a gift, anyway. #arrival #zemview #moviereview

LaLaLand. Lalaland basically just a typical romance drama movie. With musical touch on its important scenes. I like those jazz music and songs. Played beautifully throughout the movie. Yet make you sleepy over its relax sensation. Character grow is good, Gosling and Stone really into it (I think Emma was too skiny here). I love City of Stars and A Lovely Night they sang together. But what is worse than 'People change' on 500 days of Summer? It is 'Love may not always keep you together' for Mia and Seb. And that imagination world at the end, is really really hurt. #lalaland #zemview #moviereview

Rogue One: a Star Wars Story. Okay, as far as I know, since the prequel trilogy, it's the best star wars! I love the story. I love the action scene. I love cgi action. Oh I love everything about it. Everything and everyone has their own portion of appearance. The Rogue One members, Lord Vader, Erso Father, everyone has a good and enough portion which built the story whole. Jyn Erso's rebel, The captain, The droid, the pilot, the monk and the guardian. They're like the Suicide Squad of The Galaxy. And this team is more suicide than the Suicide Squad movie. Oh and I forget what's the last time I cry, and this one succeed to watery my eyes. Really good movie. Two thumbs up! Anyway, Spoiler alert: Jyn Erso is not Rey mother! I'm one with The Force, and The Force is with me (such like wahidul wujud). #starwars #rogueone #moviereview #zemview

Moana. Disney is trying to change its 'Princess' looks and personality. Nowadays 'Princess' (that Brave girl, Elsa, and now Moana) is not a girl struggling with its problem waiting for The Prince to save them, they're facing their problem by herself, they're breaking old rules. About planting some feminist ideology, but not that feminazi so still cool. Anyway. The animation still stunning, sea color is perfect. The songs still good, even make me wanna sing it all along (that Maui's song). Story is okay. Heihei is funny. And I love that opening short-movie about inner-self. #moana #moviereview #zemview

Train to Busan. Damn.. Next level of thrilling. It's like multi-level of thrilling threat. And every level of threat has its own solving method, no repeat. It's not how to kill zombies, but how to escape them safely, but nowhere and no one really safe till the very end. You also can not guess what's going to happen and who's left to live for. Surprising. Thrilling. Twisting. Happy but Sad ending. #traintobusan #moviereview #zemview

Doctor Strange. Woow. Visualgasm. First, Cumberbatch still that good. And unlike Depp, who always be him-crazy-self, Cumberbatch can be different person in every role. Forget Sherlock's accent in this movie, Stephen Strange is a different person. The Ancient One is good. But Kaelicius hmm, okay. And somehow Mordo is more logical and pure of his way. I bet Mordo and Sttange will be next Thor and Loki, they'll also gonna meet each others (ups..spoiler hehe). Second, the visual is amazing, that everyone said 'inception wannabe' scene is nothing like inception. Third, the action is also great, with those spells and chakras. The joke is also so MARVELlous. And last one. The last fight is...hilarious. Marvel likes to give us unexpected ending these days. Start from GoTG Civil War, and now Doctor Strange. Overall, a good opening phase. #doctorstrange #moviereview #zemview
