Burnt (2015)

Undercooked. A good plot, with a decent story and an amazing cast, Burnt starts off brilliantly and manages to hold its grip on its viewers for quite a bit of the movie, but then it just drops and melts down by the end of it like an undercooked soufflé, leaving the viewers underwhelmed and unpleasingly wanting for more….

Logan (2017)

A movie that came one too late. ‘Logan’ is everything that was needed in a movie about a violent, enraged, powerful character such as the Wolverine. The sad part about this is that this movie marks as the final installment in the legacy of the original ‘X-Men’ series, with the remaining last two actors of…

The Accountant (2016)

Complex. The plot and story of The Accountant is beautifully intricate and complex to keep the viewer intrigued until the last moment and even leaves them craving for more. A great mixture of suspense, thrill and action, The Accountant does complete justice to the expectations its wonderful trailer raised. The movie beautifully paces itself with…

Inferno (2016)

Gripping. Another Dan Brown’s novel is turned into a somewhat less disappointing motion picture. Inferno held a lot of promise in regards to story-telling and plot and in most cases it did not disappoint. If you haven’t watched it yet, I highly recommend that you catch it atleast once. A similar beginning to every tale…

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

A milestone. That’s what this movie signifies. A milestone in the long and many a times failed fusion of comics and cinema. Even after all the criticism and negative reviews, I believe BvS reigns supreme over all superhero movies and only falls below the Nolan Trilogy. Zack Snyder, quickly took us through the origin of…

Red Hood: The Fallen (Fan Film) (2015)

This is my first fan-film review and I’m only doing this because it superseded my expectation by a huge margin. Usually, when you see a fan-film, you see excited fan boys and girls, in awkward scenes and in shoddy camera work, all this is in comparison to the actual movies. But this fan film is…

August Rush (2007)

They met on night when the magic of music was at play. He was the lead singer of an Irish rock band and she was a concert cellist. After a night of performances, they attend the same party and in an effort to escape the madness of it, Lyla withdraws to the roof where she…

The Man from Earth (2007)

“I just happened.” The Man from Earth is one those movies that’ll actually make you think and wonder. It’ll make you question life, existence and everything that you see and hold dear for that tiny second before you’re snapped back to reality. A smooth-flowing, dialogue based film with only one room as a set location…

Me and Earl and The Dying Girl (2015)

Genuine. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl belongs to the rare category of movies where the movie is genuine, true and completely relatable. No over done plot, exaggerated story and unnecessary romantic interjections. Me and Earl and The Dying Girl is what a high-school-teenage movie is supposed to be like. The movie’s plot is…

Spectre (2015)

Textbook. James Bond is back with his class, chivalry and a cold face of an agent with a license to kill. Spectre sticks to the ‘Bond-Film-Formula’ and viewers aren’t shown anything out of the ordinary in comparison to the other Bond films, apart from one change, which is extremely irritating. The movies starts off with…

Ronaldo (2015)

A documentary that fulfils its purpose. This documentary is a cocktail of various aspects of the football-ing idol, Cristiano Ronaldo. It gives the necessary ‘sneak-peak’, the necessary glimpse into a global superstar’s life. it helps a viewer vicariously live the thrill of being a celebratory, re-live the magical moments on the football pitch and help…

Goosebumps (2015)

Nostalgic. Goosebumps is a visual time portal back to the scary Sunday nights in your bedroom or living room where a 10 year old child is wrapped up in a blanket, has one of the books of an excellent series in his hand and has goosebumps at the back of his neck and hands. Goosebumps shockingly…
