Doctor Sleep

The Shining by master director Stanley Kubrick had a psychological angle in its narrative. Even though it had that spooky reincarnation theme inside it, we were mostly looking at it as a hallucinated phase of the characters. When the sequel of The Shining, Doctor Sleep began, I faced a major disappointment immediately as the makers […]




Final Thoughts

The content here has so many unique elements that by the time you finish watching the film, the pitch difference between this one and the Kubrick movie won’t be a problem for you.

Terminator: Dark Fate

We are all familiar with the standard procedure in a terminator movie. A portal from the future will appear in two areas of the city and naked human lookalike robots will come from there. One of them will be here to save a person and the other will be here to kill the same person. […]




Final Thoughts

A kind of maturity in the behavior of certain characters, as they have gone through a lot in life gives Terminator: Dark Fate some likability in terms of concept.

Gemini Man

Gemini Man from Ang Lee is a movie that would have been immensely satisfying if the story could explore the headspace of its central characters in a deeply affecting way. But the movie just can’t achieve that.  The predictability is the main villain here and Lee is struggling to find the right balance between the […]




Final Thoughts

The content here is more focused on the show-off stuff like the stunts and the double role. And because of mediocre visual effects (compared to Hollywood standards), even that target is not achieved.

Joker

What is so fabulous about Todd Phillips’ Joker is how immersive it is as a cinematic experience. A character like Joker is always a fascinating character that will make you wonder how someone becomes as intimidating like that. Joker is doing exactly and precisely that. It focuses sharply on Arthur’s headspace. Our right and wrong, […]

Rambo: Last Blood

If you look at the script of the new Rambo movie Rambo: Last Blood, the feel is somewhat generic. But why I found this movie interesting was with the way it sort of gave focus to the vulnerable side of the man who has lived the life of a killing machine. Rambo: Last Blood may […]




Final Thoughts

On a story level, you can call it as a routine one man show heroism, but with the pacing of the movie, Grunberg manages to make us think about the main guy and his emotional space.

Angry Birds 2

Humor has always been the one key thing that helped the animation films in generating an appeal. Most of the animation films, in the beginning, were written beautifully and the humor had a blended feel. As the market for it grew, filmmakers and studios kind of had a misconception that it was only the humor […]




Final Thoughts

A kid who is yet to understand the meaning of words may enjoy the cuteness of the characters he or she is seeing on screen. Other than that, Angry Birds 2 offers nothing special to its viewers.

Once Upon A Time in Hollywood

For almost two hours into the movie Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, I was kind of having this feeling that this movie is so different from the usual Quentin Tarantino movies. Two hours and I am yet to see a drop of blood. Will this be that one QT movie Anupama Chopra will love […]




Final Thoughts

A thin concept getting a grand visual narrative simply because of the way the screenplay writing managed to add layers; that’s Once Upon A Time in Hollywood for me in a nutshell.

Hobbs & Shaw

Fast and Furious is a franchise that one watches mainly to see the crazy imagination of the makers to create set pieces involving vehicles. The characters Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw became easily popular when stars like Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham came on board in this Vin Diesel lead franchise. The popularity of those […]




Final Thoughts

Hobbs & Shaw is definitely fun to watch. It is a usual Fast & Furious movie with the action treatment getting a different tone.
