"Jung_E: A Philosophical Sci-Fi Action Film Set in the Future"
Director Yeon Sang-ho, who helmed the popular film "Train to Busan," takes a stab at sci-fi action flicks with deep philosophical underpinnings in his latest project, "Jung_E," now available on Netflix. While his skill with set-pieces remains evident, the bloated and overlong center of the film doesn't quite work.

The opening action sequence and the last 15 minutes are thrilling, but almost everything in between fails to hold one's attention.

"Movie Review : We Have a Ghost"
During the pandemic, the lack of a substantial audience for the body swap comedy horror Freaky was one of the hardest big screen losses, despite being a snappy crowd-pleaser. Unfortunately, Freaky was released during the time when audiences were still staying away, leading to its cruelly under-seen status. Freaky was written and directed by Christopher Landon, who is known for his previous works like Disturbia and Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse and directing Happy Death Days 1 and 2. His previous works showcased a buoyancy of tone that made them fun even when frightening things were happening. However, Freaky's lack of exposure might have cost Landon something more distinctive. Though his latest movie, We Have a Ghost, might be aimed at a younger demographic, it retains the same speed and spirit as his previous work.

Review of "The Strays" (2023)
The Strays, a film currently streaming on Netflix, is a suburban horror movie that provides a tantalizing glimpse into the secretive lives of the almost-wealthy. It is a social thriller that exploits the fears of the upper-middle class and eventually turns into a home invasion film that overstays its welcome.
