The Curse of La Llorona

The structure of the new Conjuring spin-off The Curse of the Weeping Woman/ The Curse of La Llorona is almost like a template of any horror movie. The lazily written film directed by Michael Chaves only has jump scares to its credit and with typical character behavior and certain dialogues landing up as unintentional comedy […]




Shazam!

Remember the kind of fun something like Deadpool offered through its irreverent humor? Shazam from DC has that in it and that too in a refreshing way. Even the irreverent comedy has become slightly formulaic and to be honest Shazam wasn’t really having that feeling. With humor in abundance along with humanizing characters, Shazam was […]

At a time when the conjuring inspired jumpscare filled clichéd horror movies are putting the horror genre on the verge of burnout, something like an Us is a great relief and sort of re-instill the faith in the genre. This doppelganger horror thriller from Jordan Peele is one movie that manages to create an outcome […]

In terms of delivering justice to that kind of hype it created, Captain Marvel hasn’t really achieved […]

While the roughly two-hour-long film is totally engaging, there is a kind of familiarity and predictability in the screenplay that it tries to cover up that flaw with its slick attire. With visuals and scene […]




The Lego Movie 2

The Lego Movie 2 pretty much has everything you would look for in a direct sequel of The Lego Movie. It’s frequently hilarious with pop culture references, spoofs of its own characters, it makes fun of the clichés in film making and that message factor which makes it that kid’s movie is also placed in a […]




Bumblebee

Bumblebee is easily the most well made Transformers movie. It is calm, it isn’t jingoistic and not at all misogynistic. For a Michael Bay ruined franchise like Transformers, achieving these three things itself is a historic feat. Bumblebee is a spin-off and it is almost equivalent to what Rogue one was to the Star Wars […]
