The Green Inferno (2013)

I’ve always found Eli Roth’s films to be mixed bags. GREEN INFERNO is by far his best picture, but as in most of his other films his limitations as a dialogue writer are foregrounded too often, albeit thankfully to nowhere near the extent they were in the RZA’s execrable vanity project MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS. His character development skills, however, show unexpected signs of … Continue reading The Green Inferno (2013)

Cinderella and the Secret Prince (2018)

When I started to watch this animation, I didn’t have that much high hope. I thought it was just another nonsense story and the animation would be just fine because it wasn’t from Disney, DreamWorks or such American big animation companies. But within five minutes, I realised that I was wrong. This animation is a remake version of the famous Cinderella story. But it’s really … Continue reading Cinderella and the Secret Prince (2018)

Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019)

Childhood television shows hold a special place in our hearts, bringing us back to the days where adventure lied in every episode. Eager minds waited for the next episode to come, fooling ourselves that something different was going to happen to our hero and push them to the edge, only until we realized it was predictably the same ending. So movies that come out to … Continue reading Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019)

Anna (2019)

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 And challenging himself, he isn’t just diving in on an outdated formula but also on the most frowned upon franchise and to add more troubles, a spin-off.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)
