My Spy: The Eternal City - Inferior Sequel to the 2020 Spy Action Comedy Movie

When this movie was released on Prime Video few days ago, I was on holiday trip with my wife and did not have the chance to watch it. But I did give this movie a try last night. And so here's more on it.

Brief Story Line

Few years after the events of My Spy, JJ (Dave Bautista - Glass Onion: A Knives Out MysteryHotel Artemis etc) had been living with Sophie (Chloe Coleman - Dungeon & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, Pain Hustlers etc) who was now a teenager and her mother Kate (Lara Babalola). JJ was no longer working as a field agent and instead as analyst together with Bobbi (Kristen Schaal - The Mysterious Benedict Society TV series, The Last Man on Earth TV series etc) and their boss David Kim (Ken Jeong - Wonder ParkBoss Level etc).

When Sophie's school choir was invited to go to Vatican city, JJ offered to become chaperone together with other parents and the Vice Principal Nancy (Anna Faris - The Emoji Movie, Mom comedy series etc). At first he thought it would be normal trip where his biggest trouble would be keeping the students in check, including Sophie's best friend Collin (Taeho K) and her crush Ryan (Billy Barrat - Invasion TV series etc). However things became complicated when the ruthless assassin Crane (Flula Borg - Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin etc) came into the picture and endangering the country.

Vanished into the Night - A Rather Disappointing and Lack of Intensity for Such a Thriller Movie

When I finished an interesting series two days ago, I was not able to make up my mind of what new series to watch. After scrolling through Netflix multiple times, I finally decided to give this Italian movie a try last night. It was released last Thursday and made it to the Top 10 in Indonesia which made me curious. OK then, I'll just head right to it.

Brief Story Line

Pietro (Riccardo Scamarcio - A Haunting in Venice, My Brother Is an Only Child etc) and his wife Elena (Annabelle Wallis - Malignant, Peaky Blinders TV series etc) who had been married for years and living in Bari were in the middle of divorce process. Elena wanted to take their children Bianca (Gaia Coletti) and Giovanni (Lorenzo Ferrante) back to US as she was not happy in Italy, while Pietro wanted to stay in Bari even though he was having financial difficulty.

Project Silence - An Intense and Suspenseful Combination of Disaster and Action Thriller Movie

As I said in my earlier post, there were quite a lot of new movies released in Indonesian cinemas this week, with two of them from South Korea. It was amazing since according to the schedule this month, there would be 5 of them. And this was the second one we saw during our movie marathon last Saturday. All right then, let's move on with it.

Brief Story Line

Cha Jung-won (Lee Sun-kyun - Parasite, My Mister TV series etc) who worked as the aide to Secretary General/candidate for President Jung Hyun-baek (Kim Tae-woo - The Pirates, Twinkling Watermelon TV series etc) was driving to the airport with his daughter Kyung-min (Kim Su-an - Train to Busan, Reflection of You TV series etc). While passing through the bridge that connected to the airport, a catastrophic incident occurred which resulted to the bridge on the verge of collapsing.
