A spin-off of the Men in Black (MIB) film series, the story follows a London-based team of MIB secret agents trying to solve a murder mystery while travelling around the world.

9. Aladdin (May 24)

For the past few years, Disney is all about live-action adaptation of its classic movies. So here is Aladdin directed by Guy Ritchie.

Although it is not out yet, the movie has already gathered more than enough criticism, especially for its casting.

The addition of a white character played by Billy Magnussen had people accusing them of whitewashing the film.

On top of that, the public was also unhappy that Princess Jasmine is being played by a non-Middle Eastern and Anglo Indian actress Naomi Scott.

To top it all, Marwan Kenzari was accused being too hot for the role of Jafar. (Although the thirst tweets following this reveal are hilarious.)

But as they say in Hollywood, there is no such thing as bad publicity.

10. Godzilla: King of the Monsters (May 31)

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a sequel to the 2014 Godzilla movie.

According to the synopsis released by Warner Bros, Godzilla will fight Mothra, Rodan and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.

11. X-Men: Dark Phoenix (June 6)

This movie made it to our last year’s list of movies to watch in 2018. What is it doing here again? It was previously set to be released on Nov 2019, then rescheduled to be released on Feb 14, 2019. Now it is scheduled for release on June 6 this year.

The plot follows nearly a decade after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse. The X-Men are now national heroes going on increasingly risky missions.

The conflict starts when a solar flare hitting them during a rescue mission in space and Jean Grey loses control of her power, unleashing the Phoenix.

12. Toy Story 4 (June 29)

Raise your hand if you thought Toy Story 3 (2010) was the last movie of this Pixar installment.

The film continues from the last movie where Sheriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear after Andy gave them to Bonnie Anderson.

13. Spiderman: Far From Home (July 5)

So with the release of Spiderman: Far From Home, we know that Peter Parker is alive after Avengers: Endgame.

The movie follows Parker who goes on summer vacation to Europe with his friends. There, Spiderman teams up with villain Mysterio to fight against The Elementals.

14. The Lion King (July 19)

If you love the 1994 The Lion King, then you must put this movie on your Hollywood movies to watch in 2019.

And if you watched the trailer then you know it is a photorealistic computer animated remake of the 1994 film.

15. Joker (Oct 4)

DC Comics fans might have high expectations on this movie as it is the first film separate from the DC Extended Universe.

Moreover, movie fans are looking forward to see Joaquin Phoenix’s performance as the Joker.

16. Kingsman 3 (Nov 8)

Ladies if you have not heard the news, we are sorry to announce that Taron Egerton aka Eggsy will not be in this movie.

But rest assured, he has also told Yahoo: “That doesn’t mean I won’t be in Kingsman ever again.”

So what is Kingsman without Eggsy? Now we have to watch just to find out.

17. Jumanji 3 (Dec 13)

Do you know that there was an alternate ending for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle which was supposed to leave the door open for another movie? That scene was removed from the final cut of the film.

Regardless, the third untitled Jumanji is confirmed on the way.

18. Star Wars: Episode IX (Dec 19)

Remember The Last Jedi? This movie is set a year after that movie.

Perhaps this time we will finally know who Rey is related to… and whether it matters in the grander scheme of the Star Wars universe.

5 reasons why Netflix’s The Princess Switch is a mindlessly fun movie to watch

If you are subscribed to Netflix, then you might already know that The Princess Switch was released last Nov 16.

Directed by Mike Rohl, it is a Christmas romantic comedy starring Vanessa Hudgens, Sam Palladio and Nick Sagar.

Hudgens plays both Stacy DeNovo, a Chicago baker and Lady Margaret Delacourt the Duchess of Montenaro. Margaret was also the future bride of Edward, the crown prince of fictional Kingdom of Belgravia.

Stacy and Margaret decide to switch places for a couple of days as the latter was hoping to live a normal non-duchess life before her arranged marriage to Edward.

With a predictable storyline, the movie opened to mixed reviews with a handful of bloopers here and there.

Nonetheless here at KajoMag, we have five reasons The Princess Switch is a mindless fun movie for you to watch this Christmas.

1.Watch it for Vanessa Hudgens’ cringey British accent

The Princess Switch 1
Hudgens plays both Stacy DeNovo (left) and Lady Margaret Delacourt (right).

Hudgens playing the American Stacy DeNovo attempting to carry a British accent is funny to watch. However, Hudgens playing Lady Margaret Delacourt with what she means to be a native British accent was cringey. For this, you really have to watch The Princess Switch to experience the difference.

2.It features the world’s hottest sous chef

Nick Sagar playing Kevin Richards (Stacy’s best friend and sous chef) was one of, or maybe the best thing in the movie.

All I can say is there’s a scene featuring a shirtless Kevin and it was the only man-candy moment you need from a movie this Christmas.

The Princess Switch 3
Yes, everything is fine. Credits: Screenshot from Netflix trailer.

3.A life-swapping movie is always fun to watch

17 again, The Parents’ Trap, Freaky Friday, 13 Going 30; a life-swapping movie is always fun to watch.
Furthermore, it is always interesting to watch any actor acting two different characters in one movie.

4.The Duchess’s closet is worth killing for

Obviously, Lady Margaret the duchess has a way better wardrobe than Stacy the baker. And the Duchess’ closet is on top of my Christmas wish list this year. From the heels Stacy wore during her visit to the orphanage and her maroon ball gown, every fashion item was definitely to die for.

5.A good movie to watch mindlessly while sipping on a drink this Christmas

Putting aside the nonsensical idea of learning to be somebody else in just few hours, The Princess Switch was actually a fun movie to watch. Hudgens, should consider acting in more rom-coms as she was hilarious in the movie.

If you are watching The Princess Switch this Christmas, grab a glass of wine, beer, brandy, whiskey or eggnog and expect a fairly tale movie with a fairly tale ending.

How to master secondhand shopping for your wardrobe

Secondhand shopping is a skill that needs to be learned. It requires practice and perseverance so that you won’t leave a thrift or vintage store with regrets.

Furthermore, mastering secondhand shopping also allows you to grab that one perfect piece of clothing before everybody else.

Here are Kajo-tested and approved techniques on how to master secondhand shopping for your wardrobe:

pexels photo 374677
Never miss a rack when secondhand shopping.

  1. Don’t miss a rack

There are plenty to see when you go for secondhand shopping but no matter what happens, never lose your focus.
Go through every rack and check every hanger because you never know what you’ll find.
Also, wear something comfortable and be patient when you go out shopping.

2. Never buy anything with a stain on it.

It doesn’t matter how good it looks or how well it fits you, do not buy anything with a stain on it. No matter how big or small the stain is, it is better to play safe and don’t purchase a stained piece of secondhand clothing.

Never assume you can get rid of the stain later.

3. Check every zip and button

pexels photo 1232131
If the clothes need major repairs, skip them.

Secondhand shopping is like working on quality control section of a factory: You have to check every part of the clothes especially the buttons, seams and zips.

If it only needs minor repair such as sewing in a missing button, then it is worth to buy.

If the clothes need major repairs like a broken zip, however, it is better to drop it.

4. Black is always the safest colour

pexels photo 219554
Black clothes are always a good idea.

When secondhand shopping for your wardrobe, it is best to pick fashion neutrals. These are colours that go with anything.

Basic neutral colours are black, gray, navy, brown, khaki and white. The best out of these fashion neutrals is of course black, while the riskiest choice is white.

Try to avoid printed fabrics unless they look timeless. Most prints come and go so you can easily which era some specific prints come from.

5.Go for the classic, timeless style

Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn when secondhand shopping for clothes. Aim for classic and timeless designs which will make you effortlessly chic.

Say no to big puffy sleeves that definitely scream 80s fashion unless you are shopping for a Halloween costume.
Hepburn was known for her form-fitting long sleeve shirt, striped shirt, smart black trousers, button up shirt and A-line skirt or dress.

When in doubt, go for Hepburn-inspired little black dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. You can never ever go wrong with an LBD.

Top 8 Reasons Why You Should Watch Sense8 on Netflix

Warning: This article contains spoilers.

(Image source:

When Sense8 was cancelled in 2017, fans all over the globe were devastated.

Created by the Wachowski siblings, it was a great science fiction drama series for anybody to enjoy. Unfortunately, Netflix cancelled the third season citing not enough viewership for the high production cost ( reported that it costs $108 million per episode).

Now that Neflix announced a two-hour special finale for Sense8, here are the top 8 reasons why you should start binge watching this drama series.

1. Mind-blowing plot-line

the gang
(Image source:

Sense8 tells a story of eight strangers linked together through psychic connection.

The eight form a cluster known as Sensates, human beings that are emotionally and mentally linked together. Through this, they can sense each other’s feelings, emotions and even possess each other’s knowledge and skills.

While trying to figure out how and why they are connected, the Sensates were hunted down by the Biologic Preservation Organization (BPO) and Whispers, a high-ranking sensate inside BPO.

The first episode of the first series introduces the main characters and how they live their lives separately before discovering each other.

In the second season, you see the characters grow closer together as they are accustomed to each other’s daily lives and emotions.

2. Diverse characters

Sense8 is made up of diverse multiracial characters of different professional backgrounds.

You have Capheus Onyango, a matatu driver from Nairobi; Sun Bak, a daughter of a powerful businessman from Seoul who is also an underground boxer; Nomi Marks, a hacker from San Francisco; Kala Dandekar, a chemist from Mumbai; Riley Blue, a Icelandic deejay; Wolfgang Bogdanow, a locksmith and safe-cracker from Berlin; Lito Rodriguez, a Spanish actor and Will Gorski, a Chicago police officer.

Apart from the multiracial cast, Sense8 is also notable for representing and revolving around the LGBTQ community and themes.

For instance, it features Nomi, a trans woman in a relationship with a woman and Lito, a closeted gay actor living with his boyfriend.

Sense8 also explores interracial romance and how it affects the relationship between Kala and Wolfgang.

3. The Wachowskis

Sense8 is written and mostly directed by the Wachowskis.

Besides Sense8, other notable work by the Wachowskis includes The Matrix, Cloud Atlas, Ninja Assassin and V for Vendetta.

With so much great work produced by them, fans can expect to see great plot packed with mind-blowing action scenes.

4. The fight scenes

As expected from the Wachowskis, Sense8 is not short of fight scenes.

My particular favourite fight scene is just about whenever Sun appears on screen.

One of the few characters on the show with a solid fighting background – she’s supposed to be an underground boxing champion – her fight scenes are satisfying to watch, graceful and fluid.

Sun in one of the many awesome fighting scenes

And being part of the Sensates, each of the character can channel Sun whenever they encounter danger.

5. Telepathic connection between the gang members

Being part of the Sensates, the characters are able to feel each other’s emotions as well as experience each other’s surroundings.

Sense8 is interesting, fresh and quirky as it involves linking eight random strangers together and how they get to know each other on personal levels.

6. It  has two awesome seasons

With only 23 episodes between two seasons, you will have plenty of time to binge watch Sense8.

The first season consist of 12 episodes while the second season has 11.

7. Those damn cliff-hangers in Season 2

In the final episode, Woflgang was captured and the Sensates were seen leaving on plane to save him The multiracial cast of Sense 8 (Image source:

For somebody who has been emotionally invested and attached to the Sensates since episode 1, the cancellation of Sense8 is just disrespectful.

Not only that, the final episode on Season 2 has a truckload of cliff hangers that deserve closure.

For instance, in the final episode the gang was seen getting ready to board the plane (from their respective countries) to save Wolfgang.

For those who have been religiously keeping up with Sense8, this is a huge moment as this would be the first time all of them would physically meet each other.

Apart from that, other cliff hangers that deserves a closure includes whether Sun will find justice for her father’s death after escaping from prison, Naomi and Amanita (Naomi’s girlfriend)’s wedding and whether Capheaus will win the election.

8. The third and final season airs in June

After so many cliff hangers left in season 2, fans all over the globe were left hanging as to what would happened to the Sensates.

Finally, Netflix finally announced that Sense8 is renewed for its third and final season giving fans the closure they deserve.

The much awaited conclusion will air a two hour series finale on Netflix on June 8th.

KajoPicks: 8 films about Mount Everest you must watch

Mount Everest is the world’s highest mountain, standing at its  official height of 8,848m.

While the rest of the world calls it Everest, the mountain is called Sagarmatha in Nepal and Chomolungma in Tibet.

The name Everest was actually given by the Royal Geographical Society as suggested by the British Surveyor General of India, Andrew Waugh in 1865.

Waugh named it after his predecessor, Sir George Everest.

Even though more than 4,000 people have reached its peak since Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay in 1953, hundreds  have died doing it, which is why its no surprise that Everest always make it into popular culture.

There are plenty of books, movies and documentaries out there telling tales of courageous humans pushing their limits to conquer Everest.

Here, we narrowed down eight films from all over the world on Mount Everest to watch:

1.Everest (2015)


On May 10 to 11, 1996, eight people died while caught in a blizzard on Mount Everest.

This movie starring Jason Clarke and Jake Gyllenhaal, is based on that 1996 disaster.

A real tearjerker, the film focuses on the two expedition groups led by Rob Hall (Clarke) and Scot Fischer (Gyllenhall).

Overall, the film was a commercial blockbuster and received positive reviews from critics.

However, journalist Jon Krakauer who was on assignment from Outside magazine and part of Hall’s expedition team was not happy with the movie.

Krakauer thinks that some of its details were fabricated and defamatory.

The storyline for Everest (2015) is mostly adapted from Beck Weathers’ book Left for Dead: My Journey Home from Everest.

2. Into Thin Air: Death on Everest (1997)

p19867_d_v8_aaThis TV movie is according to Krakauer’s account of what happened during the 1996 Mount Everest tragedy.

It is based on Krakauer’s memoir Into Thin Air which received considerable amount of criticism.

For those with curious minds, they could watch both Everest (2015) and Into Thin Air: Death on Everest (1997) and compare the storylines.

3.The Himalayas (2015)

The_Himalayas_(film)_posterThe Himalayas (2015) is based on South Korean climber Um Hong Gil’s life.

It focuses on his mentorship of two other climbers Park Moo Taek and Park Jeong Bok.

Sadly, Moo Taek died during an expedition on Mount Everest and his body was left in the Himalayas.

The movie is based on real-life event of Um, set aside concerns over his leg injury to lead a team to find Moo Taek’s body.

4. Poorna: Courage Has No Limit (2017)

220px-Poorna_-_PosterMalavath Poorna conquered the summit of Mount Everest at the age of 13 years and 11 months earning the title as the youngest girl in the world to do so.

Keeping true to Poorna’s tribe, they speak in the native Telugu language.

Poorna: Courage Has No Limit (2017) was shot in Poorna’s home village in Pakala over a period of 11 days.

It was highly praised in the media including The Hindustan Times which stated “Poorna shows you that incredible stories can be told simply. Bollywood can learn from that.”

5. Beyond the Edge (2013)

Beyond-Final-Poster-BThis New Zealand docudrama is about Norgay and Hillary’s historical ascent of Everest in 1953.

6. Blindsight (2006)

p178743_p_v8_aa The climbers in this documentary do not climb Mount Everest but the 23,000 foot Lhakpa Ri mountain in the shadow of the Himalaya.

Blindsight follows the story of six blind Tibetan teenagers on their journey to climb Lhakpa Ri mountain.

The group had some help for their challenge, a blind German social worker Sabriye Tenberkan and famous blind mountain climber Erik Weihenmayer.

7. Everest (1998)

And the plus point for this documentary? Liam Neeson narrated this film.

Doesn’t make sense, does it?

10. Ocean’s 8 (June 7)

But it is intended to be first film in Sony’s Marvel Universe to be set in the same world with Spider-Man: Homecoming, an MCU film.

In 2017 we saw the success of IT and this year another 1980s horror movie is making a comeback.

Myers was the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

15. The Girl In the Spider’s Web (Oct 18)

The Millennium book series created by Stieg Larsson revolves around computer hacker Lisbeth Salander and investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist.

18. Aquaman (Dec 20)

Jason Mamoa as Aquaman.
Jason Mamoa as Aquaman.

So far, the year 2018 seems like a big year for Marvel. So how about ending the year with a DC Comics film?

Following the events of Justice League (which was disappointing), Arthur Curry (aka Aquaman) is now caught between two worlds.

On one side we have surface dwellers who are always polluting the Earth and on the other the underwater kingdom of Atlantis.

To be honest, who cares if Warner Bros Pictures delivers another DC flop through Aquaman? Just give us one shirtless scene of Jason Momoa and all will be forgiven.
