Non-Stop is a 2014 French-American mystery-thriller film starring Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery, Lupita Nyong’o, and Scoot McNairy.

Our Review of Non-Stop

When we first caught the movie trailer of Non-Stop at the start of the year, our immediate reaction was, “This is going to be one exciting movie that we must watch!” and so we did last weekend at the Golden Village Max Theatre @ VivoCity.

With a duration of 106 minutes, we were kept in suspense throughout the movie, not knowing what to expect as the plot was certainly unpredictable and it caught us by surprise as well. Though some parts of the movie did not make any logical sense, it certainly was entertaining. If you are planning to catch a movie this weekend and 300: Rise Of An Empire is running full house, Non-Stop is one movie you should not miss.

Non-Stop Movie Synopsis

Global action star Liam Neeson stars in Non-Stop, a suspense thriller played out at 40,000 feet in the air. During a transatlantic flight from New York City to London, U.S. Air Marshal Bill Marks [Neeson] receives a series of cryptic text messages demanding that he instruct the government to transfer $150 million into an off-shore account. Until he secures the money, a passenger on his flight will be killed every 20 minutes.

Thanks to Air Asia Singapore, we had the privilege of catching the movie, “Planes” by Walt Disney Pictures at Golden Village VivoCity and here’s our review of the movie.

Movie Synopsis of Planes:

A spin-off of Disney and Pixar’s 2006 animated film “Cars”, “Planes” takes off with an international cast of the fastest air racers around. It is a comedic film packed with action and adventure starring Dusty, a small town dreamer who longs to enter the most epic around-the-world air race, despite his fear of heights. With the help and support of a fleet of new and hilarious characters, Dusty wings his way into the biggest challenge of his life.

Our Review of Planes:

To be really honest, we felt as though we were watching the movie, “Cars” all over again because the story plot is predictable and not so original. As a matter of fact, we found “Cars” and “Planes” extremely similar and the only difference that sets them apart is; one has a theme entirely on cars and the other on planes. Spanning a running time of 1 hour 35 minutes, you might want to consider bringing your little ones for a movie treat but if you’re on budget constraints, we rather that you save your money for upcoming movies like Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. Don’t get us wrong though; Planes is not entirely that bad because after all, it is a wholesome movie that teaches the values of resilience, discipline, and confidence.

Having said all these, Planes would probably entertain children [age 8 and below] more as compared to those whom have caught “Cars” before.

Since Golden Village [GV] City Square opened for business on 13 November 2012, avid movie-goers can now catch their favourite movies at the newly-opened multiplex @ City Square Mall and with 11 multiplexes under their name, GV is Singapore’s largest cinema operator and that’s good news because with an addition of a new multiplex, it just gives movie-goers another avenue to catch their favourite movies.

Well, thanks to omy Blog Club and GV, a group of 50 bloggers [including myself] were invited to check out the new multiplex and its facilities; and we even had the opportunity to catch Twilight: Breaking Dawn [Part 2].

Check out our review of Twilight Breaking Dawn [Part 2] here:

What’s really cool about GV City Square is that it houses the Couple’s Cinema too! Unfortunately, I didn’t have the chance to shoot photographs of the Couple’s Cinema but if you’re interested to find out more, do check out GV’s website.

The Couple’s Cinema features a unique seating layout where pairs of cinema seats are separated from one another, allowing couples to cosy-up in their private space. Even though ticket prices on a normal weekday for the Couple’s Cinema cost $12, that is still way cheaper than Gold Class tickets if you’re planning for a romantic date without the hefty price tag.

If you’re planning to catch a movie and you’re residing along the North-East Line, rejoice because you have one other place to catch your favourite movies other than Serangoon NeX.

Stay tuned to more updates from us!

God bless!
