Top Gun: Maverick

I wasn’t a huge fan of the 1986 film Top Gun. I watched it really late, and it was a movie that had a lot of familiar traits, which I guess was a relatively new thing back when it was released. The sequel to Top Gun, Top Gun: Maverick, comes after 36 years after the… Continue reading Top Gun: Maverick




Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness might not be cinematically that enthralling compared to a no way home or endgame. Still, the deviation it takes from the usual pattern we see in MCU films makes this film an interesting one. The inclination toward the spookiness in the treatment makes it less of… Continue reading Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness




The Batman

The Batman, the latest DC reboot of the Batman franchise directed by Matt Reeves, is a movie that takes its own sweet time to establish its main character and his level of commitment. The Batman films have always had a better emotional value as the protagonist is not a superhero. His mask and vigilante characteristics… Continue reading The Batman




Uncharted

Uncharted, the latest Tom Holland film based on the video game of the same name, is pretty much like those Dwayne Johnson movies with too many set pieces and too little content. It’s not a film that fails to entertain you. But it clearly isn’t a film that is going to feel engaging. With a… Continue reading Uncharted




The Matrix Resurrections

At the beginning of The Matrix Resurrections, we have Purabh Kohli’s character asking the others what made the Matrix so great. It wasn’t the slow-motion one-man show of Neo. It was the combination of its philosophy, metaphorical representations, and, yes, the stunningly choreographed set pieces. When it comes to The Matrix Resurrections, it managed to… Continue reading The Matrix Resurrections




Spider-Man: No Way Home

After Avengers: Endgame, Spider-man: No Way Home is the only film in the MCU that comes packed with so many scream-worthy moments. And it is that film that sort of takes the character to a greater emotional level. Many people believed that Far From Home was a movie that never really expanded the character or… Continue reading Spider-Man: No Way Home




Red Notice

Red Notice starring Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot, feels like an Abbas Mustan movie written by Ryan Reynolds. If you let Ryan speak his own line, there is a high possibility that even the most generic scene will look like a funny one. And Red Notice from director Rawson Marshall Thurber depends heavily… Continue reading Red Notice




Dune

Denis Villeneuve’s sense of minimalism in depicting grandeur is one of the signature things that set his movies apart from his contemporaries. In his films, the supernatural or the so-called scale factor essentially becomes a backdrop for the story’s emotional core. In Dune, the latest adaptation of the Frank Herbert novel, one could see similar… Continue reading Dune
