Eternals

Chloe Zhao’s take on Eternals is a highly character-driven one. It is somewhere that risky step Marvel has taken to try out a new way of approaching its stories. Yes, the movie does miss the punch when you look at it as a superhero movie in the MCU. But the exposition-driven treatment isn’t entirely bad… Continue reading Eternals




Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, the new addition to the Marvel cinematic universe, is typical for sure, but at the same time, it is highly entertaining. It is that classic origin story that prefers to establish the life of its central protagonist comprehensively. Hence, even the main conflict is also happening in… Continue reading Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings




No Time to Die

The pitch of the new James Bond movie No Time to Die is on a highly emotional level. It is not entirely that fast and stylish Bond movie with a flurry of gadgets. This being the last Bond film of actor Daniel Craig, we see the end of that story arch, and the emphasis is… Continue reading No Time to Die




Black Widow

Black Widow, the stand-alone movie for the first female Avenger, has a story that surely clears the mist around that character. Natasha Romanoff’s past and the backdrop are something that was least explored during the first major phase of the MCU. And we do get a fair enough idea about what has happened with that… Continue reading Black Widow

The Tomorrow War

The Tomorrow War starring Chris Pratt has this fundamental issue of being a hybrid of several other blockbusters. From time traveling to alien invasion, the script written by Zach Dean is not trying to achieve anything unique. We are not given a lot of details about how and why many things are happening. And at… Continue reading The Tomorrow War




Army of the Dead

The short description given to the movie Army of the Dead on Netflix was “Dawn of the Dead meets Oceans 11”. However, after finishing the film, this description felt more like an admission of the formula they applied to create a blockbuster material. According to reports, this was a movie that Zack Snyder wanted to… Continue reading Army of the Dead




Nomadland

Nomadland is a deep dive into a single character without being extremely vocal about that particular character. As Fern leaves from one place to another, we tend to get to know her slightly more. Director Chloe Zhao has this subtle, empathetic approach in her character detailing, which keeps us in that melancholic phase without losing… Continue reading Nomadland
