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.

Project Power

The new Netflix original movie Project Power is a flashy action flick that has familiar components. The sci-fi elements combined with some sensible sentiments, this movie directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman is engaging for the viewer. But like I said, we are familiar with this kind of story arch and that does reduce […]




Final Thoughts

Project Power is a fast-paced sci-fi action movie that qualifies to be a passable popcorn flick.

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.
