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.

The Lion King

When you look at the breathtaking visuals of the new live-action version of the 1994 epic The Lion King, a part of you will feel that this update that came with the support of the new technology is a great thing. But where the movie somehow doesn’t look emotional is when it focuses on its […]




Final Thoughts

This is a story that can be considered as a metaphor for what is happening to the human race and the situation in 2019 is much worse than in 1994.

Spider-Man Far From Home

Spider-Man Far From Home may not feel like a game changer. But it definitely gives you hope that the MCU has some interesting plans for the future. The new movie has this feel of a mix of a teen movie and a superhero movie. But because of the emotional baggage Peter Parker has with the […]




Final Thoughts

What is particularly good about Spiderman: Far From Home as a sequel is that it isn’t trying to be just another story with a different villain. The villain might well be new, but it eventually shows

Annabelle Comes Home

Annabelle Comes Home, the seventh installment in the Conjuring franchise is one movie that isn’t scary for a large part of its runtime. I have to say that this franchise is losing its charm as the horror movie traits are getting repeated frequently and we don’t feel any uniqueness to these films. Like almost all […]




Final Thoughts

The chances of you addressing this movie as an extremely scary film with vivid imagery about the story are pretty less and that has been the problem with the James Wan lead franchise off late.

Men In Black: International

In Men In Black: International there were two points at which I was like “Have they censored a version exclusively for India?”. When Tessa Thompson arrives at the MIB London headquarters, she and Liam Neeson are watching Ashish Chanchlani’s YouTube video on a giant screen. And then when Agent C starts complaining about the behavior […]




Final Thoughts

The 2019 soft reboot of this franchise is an extremely lazy product that tries to rehash all the existing traits in the least innovative way.

Dark Phoenix

Dark Phoenix is considered as the last possible film in the Fox-produced X Men franchise, which is arguably the most confusing movie franchise with a totally messed up timeline. Directed by Simon Kinberg, the movie has a couple of breathtaking action sequences, but beyond that, it’s a really underwritten movie with no real emphasis on […]

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

The 2014’s Godzilla, even though it was way too heavy in terms of the exhausting action set pieces, it looked a bit authentic as it convincingly included the nuclear energy part in the whole Godzilla concept. When it comes to the 2019 story, exactly after five years from the events of the first film, the […]




Final Thoughts

If you are okay with a heavy dosage of quality CGI in an average story, then Godzilla: The King of Monsters will work for you as a passable movie.
