The Tomorrow War

The Tomorrow War starring Chris Pratt has this fundamental issue of being a hybrid of several other blockbusters. From time traveling to alien invasion, the script written by Zach Dean is not trying to achieve anything unique. We are not given a lot of details about how and why many things are happening. And at… Continue reading The Tomorrow War




Army of the Dead

The short description given to the movie Army of the Dead on Netflix was “Dawn of the Dead meets Oceans 11”. However, after finishing the film, this description felt more like an admission of the formula they applied to create a blockbuster material. According to reports, this was a movie that Zack Snyder wanted to… Continue reading Army of the Dead




Nomadland

Nomadland is a deep dive into a single character without being extremely vocal about that particular character. As Fern leaves from one place to another, we tend to get to know her slightly more. Director Chloe Zhao has this subtle, empathetic approach in her character detailing, which keeps us in that melancholic phase without losing… Continue reading Nomadland




Without Remorse

But sadly, in… Continue reading Without Remorse




The Illegal

With the writing simply brushing up on immigrant struggles’ template structure, The Illegal becomes mere documentation rather than a heartfelt story with depth. One has to be so naively ignorant… Continue reading The Illegal




Godzilla vs. Kong

The fourth installment in Legendary’s MonsterVerse, Godzilla vs. Kong, is somewhat a mix of all that we have seen in the franchise so far. The scale of the battle and the grandeur definitely make it a grand theatre experience, and at the same time, the exhausting level of CGI fight that happens over a simplistic… Continue reading Godzilla vs. Kong




I Care a Lot

J Blakeson’s I Care a Lot is an exciting and engaging mix of script transitions. It’s like, whenever the content feels predictable, it uses the peppy pace to excite you. And when things slow down a bit, it starts to navigate into directions that you may not have expected the story to move. And ultimately,… Continue reading I Care a Lot




Tenet

Resisting myself from any content that got published post the August 2020 release of Christopher Nolan’s latest film Tenet was indeed a tough task. And watching the movie finally on the big screen indeed gave me the brain exercise I was anticipating. Unlike the other films he has made, which manipulates the viewer into investing… Continue reading Tenet
