Anna (2019)

Film’s basically Salt / Red Sparrow mixed together in various ways which could in a way sound interesting except the film decides to show you too much, which has it dragging on with too many flashback sequences that last too long and ultimately make the film feel boring. This is a particular problem because it spends so much time establishing the characters past over…and over, … Continue reading Anna (2019)

The Red Sea Diving Resort (2019)

Turning true stories into films or television shows will never leave everyone happy. Those who are unaware of the original story may love it and those who know of it and feel the story is being told in poor taste may despise it. With that said, I really like going into films based on true stories, without having any knowledge of what happened in reality, … Continue reading The Red Sea Diving Resort (2019)

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

Leitch and his unflinching promise to the world on breaking down the middle ground between a B grade premise to good filmmaking has left me amazed and happy. And challenging himself, he isn’t just diving in on an outdated formula but also on the most frowned upon franchise and to add more troubles, a spin-off. But by now, we should face the facts and acknowledge … Continue reading Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

Men in Black: International (2019)

Greetings again from the darkness. This is the era of sequels and spin-offs, and every studio dreams of franchises they can squeeze for profit again and again. The 4th entry in the MIB franchise {MEN IN BLACK (1997), MEN IN BLACK II (2002), MEN IN BLACK 3 (2012)}, is certainly more spinoff than sequel, although there is a nugget that ties it to the earlier … Continue reading Men in Black: International (2019)

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

Following on from two deliriously entertaining, visually gorgeous and blissfully simplistic thrillers, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum keeps up the franchise’s unique appeal in stunning fashion. Complete with electrifying action, beautiful cinematography, a pulsating score and a great sense of humour, the film is pretty much as purely joyful as action thrillers get, and proves two hours of brilliant entertainment. Before I get into … Continue reading John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

Escape Room (2019)

The age of horror took a major turn when the Saw series unleashed its gory thrills to the Hollywood industry. Sadly, the very edge and gimmicks it brought grew stale, as sequel after sequel appeared to dilute the quality and originality. Soon carbon copies came in, eventually flooding the market with mediocre films that didn’t do much to progress the genre. Still, there are always … Continue reading Escape Room (2019)
