Da 5 Bloods

When you are watching a Spike Lee film in the present political climate, you are very much looking forward to the statements he will make against a person like Donald Trump and of course, his support for the Black Lives Matter movement. But his new Netflix movie Da 5 Bloods is not trying to reduce […]




Final Thoughts

This extensive rhetoric on black oppression gets mixed with extremely personal emotions of our central characters that fought the Vietnam War.

Extraction

The stunts you get to see in the new Netflix original film Extraction, starring Chris Hemsworth is nothing short of spectacular. Stuntman turned director Sam Hargrave really pushes the boundaries of raw action in this film and with an emotional layer that eventually works in favor of the film in an okay way, I would […]




Final Thoughts

So if you love the bone-crushing sound and is okay with an average story, Extraction will be a passable entertainer for you.

Onward

Onward, the latest Pixar movie is a delightful comedy that has a good mixture of choreographed visual comedy along with an impressive layer of emotional drama. Onward gradually transforms from slapstick kind of comedy into that feel-good pill. It may not be a drastically unique movie, but it has certain elements in the story that […]




Final Thoughts

The brotherhood, the lack of a villain and the warmth of relationships make Onward that go-to movie for you to relax and revamp yourself.

The Invisible Man

What I found captivating about the new movie The Invisible Man is its minimalism. Even the grandest of setpieces in the movie feels like something that is achievable in a regional language movie in our country. This movie has that nervous energy similar to that of Don’t Breath and A Quiet Place. And the way […]




Final Thoughts

The way The Invisible Man evolves from a sci-fi theme to a psychological drama is pretty impressive.

Birds of Prey

Women telling women’s stories is one term we have been hearing in the recent past about more women directors and writers coming with exciting ideas. All those movies had that peculiarity in terms of craft which made them unique. Directed by Cathy Yan, written by Christina Hodson and coproduced by leading lady Margot Robbie, Birds […]




Final Thoughts

There is a fearless approach in the making of Birds of Prey and I hope DC will preserve that for future movies as well.

Jojo Rabbit

When you begin watching Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, the immediate feeling one will get is that it is a cent percent fantasy satire that will rely only on humor. But as the story progresses, Waititi sort of manages to take the movie away from the mere satire angle and evokes empathy inside us. These days […]




Final Thoughts

If you ask me what I think as the specialty of this movie, I would say it was the fact that it effectively blended satiric storytelling and deeply emotional drama.

1917

1917 is a master class without a doubt. Sam Mendes has made a movie that will make you wonder how on earth they managed to execute that. When I knew about the technical achievements of this movie, a part of me feared whether the “single-shot” approach would affect the emotional depth of the content. But […]




Final Thoughts

This is one movie where you can rave about almost every department in the movie for the quality they have maintained to create such a fabulous cinema.

Spies in Disguise

Spies in Disguise, the new animated 3D movie starring Will Smith and Tom Holland is a movie that is enjoyable but feels very familiar in terms of the way the story progresses. This is that kind of a movie where you will not be bored due to the laughter gags you see on screen through […]




Final Thoughts

Spies in Disguise ultimately follows a very familiar structure we see in most of the fun feel-good animated features.
