The Midnight Sky

At its core, the Midnight Sky, directed by George Clooney, has a very emotional tale to tell you. If we can consider a movie like Interstellar as a Father-Daughter relationship story, a similar layer of emotion drives this movie. But the film based on the book Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton can’t hold your […]




Final Thoughts

The compelling element was missing in the beginning portions, and by the time it gained momentum, things started to look very guessable.

Sound of Metal

Darius Marder’s Sound of Metal is one movie that will give you that melancholic hangover. The character of Ruben Stone lingers on your mind. And that’s mostly because of the kind of raw empathy the filmmaker shows towards his central protagonist. The theme here is about accepting certain irrevocable realities and stay in the race […]




Final Thoughts

The unromanticized depiction of a painful reality makes this Darius Marder movie a moving piece of cinema.

Mank

Before you watch Mank, the new Netflix original movie directed by David Fincher, you must watch the film Citizen Kane. I saw Citizen Kane, which some people consider the greatest movie ever made, very recently. Despite being set in an era with technical limitations, Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane showed impeccable technical quality. Mank by David […]




Final Thoughts

Mank is perhaps David Fincher's tribute to the often less appreciated people in movies; the writers.

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.
