Gran Turismo Review | The Usual Underdog Story With Some Appreciable Emotional Beats

Neill Blomkamp’s new film Gran Turismo, a real story based on the life of Jann Mardenborough, is your standard underdog story that follows the usual template. The real story aspect kind of fascinated me for sure. But on research, I found out that the writers have sort of rearranged the events from the actual timeline,… Continue reading Gran Turismo Review | The Usual Underdog Story With Some Appreciable Emotional Beats

Blue Beetle Review | An Unremarkable and Generic Mashup of Superhero Traits

Blue Beetle, the new DCEU film starring Xolo Maridueña as the title character, feels like a pretty generic mashup of all the superhero traits. In fact, you can practically see many scenes or scripting tropes that are similar to many movies from DCEU and MCU. With nothing genuinely creating excitement about the concept, Jaime’s Nana… Continue reading Blue Beetle Review | An Unremarkable and Generic Mashup of Superhero Traits

Talk to Me Review | A Compelling Blend of Superficial Fears and Mental Trauma

The new Australian film Talk to Me, directed by Danny and Michael Philippou, is not a story that blows your mind by introducing something extremely unique. It is actually how you end up being an empathizer for the central character by the time the movie ends that makes it an exciting creation. And also, the… Continue reading Talk to Me Review | A Compelling Blend of Superficial Fears and Mental Trauma

Meg 2: The Trench Review | A Mediocre Mashup of Jaws and Jurassic Park

I wasn’t a fan of the 2018 film The Meg, starring Jason Statham, and the new sequel to that film, Meg 2: The Trench, feels like a creation with a similar genericness associated with its predecessor. Even though the scale has gone higher, the storytelling isn’t innovative, and with two narrative styles with stark differences… Continue reading Meg 2: The Trench Review | A Mediocre Mashup of Jaws and Jurassic Park

Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant Review | A Movie That Effectively Captures the Nuances of Human Bonding

The one thing that strikes you very soon into Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant is the fact that it doesn’t really feel like a Guy Ritchie film. From the stylish title sequences to signature stylized camera movements, there is a significant departure in the film’s visual treatment. It is almost like watching Zero Dark Thirty or… Continue reading Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant Review | A Movie That Effectively Captures the Nuances of Human Bonding

Barbie Review | A Fun, Woke Satire That Fades Out After the Initial Burst

Greta Gerwig’s Barbie is this satire that starts off with a blast, and I must say that I laughed out loud in the initial half of the movie. The woke politics never becomes too evident and boring, and it works perfectly as a teaser. That recreation of Kubrick’s Space Odyssey opening sequence creates a really… Continue reading Barbie Review | A Fun, Woke Satire That Fades Out After the Initial Burst

Oppenheimer Review | This Biopic From Christopher Nolan Is an Emphatic Character Study

Most of the films directed by Christopher Nolan have this nature of a visual representation of a hypothesis. His fixation with the concept of time and the fantasy ventures he has created always fascinated us due to the amount of science he puts into them. What sets Oppenheimer apart from most of the other films… Continue reading Oppenheimer Review | This Biopic From Christopher Nolan Is an Emphatic Character Study

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One Review | Tom Cruise Delivers a Worthy Big-Screen Experience

It is needless to say, the Mission Impossible franchise has been one of those rare movie franchises that only became better with each movie. The seventh installment in this Tom Cruise franchise, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, is one movie that ensures that the franchise’s reputation is maintained. With multiple set pieces that… Continue reading Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One Review | Tom Cruise Delivers a Worthy Big-Screen Experience
