THE DUEL (2016) – Harrelson shines as an evil preacher

THE DUEL (2016) – Harrelson shines as an evil preacher

Woody Harrelson in company with Liam Hemsworth shines in this Kieran Darcy-Smith-directed Western-like drama THE DUEL. A revenge thriller sort, the film has not been a critics’ favourite, but the performance of Harrelson as a cult leader has been praiseworthy.   In 1846 the Unites States engaged in a bloody war with Mexico over the newly […]

Extinction: Movie Review (Watch it for Lizzy Caplan & Plot Twist)

Extinction: Movie Review (Watch it for Lizzy Caplan & Plot Twist)

When we look for sci-fi adventure or any of the apocalyptic movies, we tend to expect a lot away from our real life and that makes those interesting and watchable. However, this Michael Peña and Lizzy Caplan starrer Netflix’s sci-fi fantasy thriller Extinction never really capitalizes on an original idea. Extinction follows a family man […]

Under the Shadow (2016): A horror film based on 1980s Tehran

Under the Shadow (2016): A horror film based on 1980s Tehran

Well, I am hopeful of the horror genre which is constantly evolving with innovation in story, concept, as well as the overall treatment in filmmaking. Iranian film Under the Shadow is probably the best example on how one filmmaker tries to pass social commentary in terms of women empowerment and repressing tradition, while making not […]

How It Ends (2018) I Review I Never Really Ends Well

How It Ends (2018) I Review I Never Really Ends Well

David M. Rosenthal-directed and Forest Whitaker starrer Netflix disaster drama How It Ends is neither a good thriller nor a drama. Set during some unknown geological apocalypse, I see the film as a simple road trip by two people who tries to reconnect, leaving aside their past. The film follows an expectant father Will (Theo […]

Calibre (2018) – Movie Review – A Netflix Original

This Netflix movie Calibre, starring Jack Lowden and Martin McCann in the lead, introduces us to a hunting expedition in Scotland that goes wrong with a troubling turn of events. Directed by Matt Palmer, the film is dark, gripping and certainly a must-watch. Calibre is the kind of movie that teaches us to face the […]

The Forest (2016) – A film based around Aokigahara

The Forest (2016) – A film based around Aokigahara

THE FOREST is an American supernatural horror-thriller film based on the disreputable Japanese suicide forest known as Aokigahara. However, it never delves deep into the story behind the forest but the tale of twin-sister – one of whom is missing in the forest. There are few documentaries on the infamous suicide forest in Japan and […]

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (REVIEW)

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (REVIEW)

The dinosaurs are back with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (Directed by J. A. Bayona), a sequel to the 2015 reboot of the original franchise, with a promise to have a sequel. If we look at the franchise as a whole, this is not the best of the lot; Jurassic World was comparatively much better than […]
