Purge – Election Year …

The irony is amazing with the current election year in US and this movie. The shock of the first Purge in the trilogy is now not as effective in the third instalment as you know what is going to happen and you tend to just go through the motions. However if you take into consideration…

Suicide Squad …

The first thing wrong with this movie is Cara Delevinge  – please no one ever let her in front of the camera – she is a lens disaster ! The second thing wrong with this movie is limited time Jared Leto was given on screen and also Ben Affleck. This was a great opportunity missed…

Bastille Day ..

Is Idris Elba really as good as people make out? I really am not sure – yes his Tv series “Luther” was good because it was dark, twisted and the good people did not always get their way .Idris was Idris in Luther and he is the same in Bastille Day…he sounded the same, reacted…

Qissa…

Two thirds into the film and i was thinking that this has to be one of the most intense, engaging, provocative film i have seen in a long , long time and was just sitting there in awe of the superb and effortless acting of Irfan Khan and also Tillotama Shome… Then cinematic disaster struck…

Shallows …

I am actually not sure what made me watch this film?  No i did not watch this because i liked Jaws  – as i stated not sure….however The movies starts ok and moves along well until the drama starts and then the film gets really good and quite gripping (you can feel a but coming…

Imperium …

Yes very very difficult to get Harry Potter out of the mind and accept Daniel Radcliffe as a stand alone actor. Have to say he tries damn hard especially in this flick but i think the film lets him down. It is based on true events and on that premise the ending does not justify…

Goat …

A very harrowing and a painful watch at times but brilliantly made film. It is more difficult to deal with as it is based on true events and it just really makes you sit back and ask “why is this sort of thing allowed to get so out of hand or even take place” There…

Big Bad Wolves …

An absolute fantastic gem of a film out if Israel. This film is awesome , it has an excellent build up to a climax with a tragic twist but in between, you will laugh at things (and think oh my god that is so wrong) , you will wince, you will get so anxious –…

Ghostbusters …

It fails as soon as you compare the two versions – there is no comparison, as with the original one , it was a unique concept and story and you had no idea what to expect. It had a couple of major names such s Bill Murray and Sigourny Weaver who really made the outrageously far…

Black Mass …

I think i may be one of the very few people who just does not get, appreciate or rate Johnny Depp. I was never a fan of his Pirates of the Caribbean series and he has seemed to ride on that fame for a long time. The only film where i thought his performance was…

Aligarh …

Based on true events – this is a fantastic piece of cinema with a staggering performance by the under rated Manoj Bajpai and also Rajkumar Rao (Shahid fame) The film has no pretences and yes admittedly is a slow burner but it an exceptional piece of art. You feel anguish, frustration and just total disbelief in…

Queen …

Kangana Ranaut is a legend in the making – i really hope she makes the right acting choices in regards to the scripts she is offered and remains on the big screen for years to come. Kangana is the backbone to Queen (very apt name) and carries the film seamlessly. She is so good that…
