The Trial of the Chicago 7

When you pick a real-life incident that happened over the course of time to make a movie, which phase in that incident you chose somewhat of determines the nature of the movie. And if you sort of deviate from the easily predictable angle of storytelling, it becomes interesting for the viewer and challenging for the […]




Final Thoughts

It chooses the format of a courtroom drama to tell a story about a historical protest that ironically feels extremely relevant in the present scenario.

Evil Eye

When the central character of your movie literally utters the moral of the story at the very end of the movie, I personally consider that as the failure of a filmmaker. Evil Eye directed by Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani feels extremely clumsy largely because of its inefficiency to bring in heft to the narrative. […]




Final Thoughts

The preach you get to hear at the end of the movie is almost like the makers telling the viewers that this is what we meant to convey, in case if you didn’t get it.

Hubie Halloween

Co-written and co-produced by its hero Adam Sandler, Hubie Halloween directed by Steven Brill is a lame comedy that rarely manages to generate a genuine moment of humor. Narrated as the story of a nerdy guy in Salem whom everyone lookdown as a fun spoiler, the movie is also as boring as its central character. […]




Final Thoughts

Hubie Halloween is a movie that stuffs in average jokes in a simple plot to make it look like a popcorn fun film.

Black Box

Black Box, the latest Amazon original movie, directed and co-written by Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour Jr is almost like the least complex episode in the Netflix show Black Mirror. I don’t mean this in a negative way. Black Mirror was one series that really worked for me because of the depth to which it went to show […]

Enola Holmes

The pacing structure of the new Netflix film Enola Holmes certainly will remind you of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes franchise. The fast-paced cuts into establishing the title protagonist have that absorbing energy. Then it goes deep into the core part of the story and over the course of events, it regains that initial momentum. With […]




Final Thoughts

With an impressive narrative tempo and a charming performance from the leading lady, Enola Holmes is a highly entertaining experience.

The Devil All the Time

The Devil All the Time directed by Antonio Campos is a moody drama that succeeds in building well-etched characters. Narrated by Donald Ray Pollock, the author of the book of the same name, this Tom Holland starrer eventually has that disturbing factor to its credit. Usually these moody coming of age kind of films tends […]




Final Thoughts

The Devil All the Time has these nuances of a thriller, but primarily it is an affecting emotional drama.

Love, Guaranteed

The trailer of the new Netflix film Love Guaranteed directed by Mark Steven Johnson has exposed the whole plot of the film. Thus, there isn’t any space for surprises here if you are the kind of person who watches a film after watching the trailer. In my last review for the movie All Together Now […]




Final Thoughts

The unique premise of Love, Guaranteed had some potential, but it wasn’t used effectively here to create a unique movie.

All Together Now

The good thing and the problem with the new Netflix movie All Together Now is its familiarity. It’s a movie that talks about hope from the eyes of a teenage girl named Amber who was a constant companion of tragedy. It isn’t actually trying to be far too preachy through the dialogues. But somewhere the […]




Final Thoughts

All Together Now is that kind of an inconsequential movie which isn’t bad, but at the same time was never enough.
