Dark Places Movie Starring Charlize Theron

DARK PLACES (2015) – Movie Review

September 14, 2018

The reason for me watching DARK PLACES is Charlize Theron and the little description I read on Netflix. Honestly, I never heard of this movie, until I saw it on Netflix, so it was kind of refreshing without much expectation. This movie is also available on Amazon Prime, and if you are looking for a […]

A PRAYER BEFORE DAWN: Brutal, Honest, Realistic

September 9, 2018

The first few minutes of director Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire’s A PRAYER BEFORE DAWN was unsettling with quite a sense of just any other prison drama. However, as we settle with the tonality we realize how brutal and realistic this film is. Yes indeed, it is based on the true story of Billy Moore, a young English […]

CARGO (2018) – A character-driven zombie movie

September 8, 2018

This Australian post-apocalyptic thriller CARGO is a good addition to the zombie genre with an interesting concept and a fairly moving storyline. While the film is set in a zombie-infested region, a result of a global pandemic, it has its tender moments as it captures the journey of a father to save his daughter. CARGO, […]

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

August 18, 2018

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

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

August 10, 2018

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

August 7, 2018

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 […]

Wheelman - Netflix - Frank Grillo

Wheelman (2017, Netflix) – Movie Review

July 31, 2018

Netflix’s fast-paced driving thriller Wheelman is an entertaining thriller filled with right amount of melodrama and all action on the road. Directed by Jeremy Rush, this film is tense, gritty, and an adventurous ride on the wheel. Plot: A getaway driver takes a job to accompany two robbers to a heist and drive them away […]

Netflix Movie 'How It Ends'

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

July 16, 2018

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 […]

Netflix slasher Romina – Violent, Gore, Disappointing

July 14, 2018

Mexican production Romina is a slasher film now streaming on Netflix. Directed by Diego Cohen, the film has no story and runs one dimensionally on a simple plot where six friends go for a camping trip and most get killed by one of their school friends. I watched this movie, because it was on Netflix. […]

Shot Caller starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

Shot Caller (2017) – Impressive prison story (Review)

July 13, 2018

Ric Roman Waugh’s prison drama Shot Caller is a terrific thriller with not so unique storyline yet has its moments when it takes us through the power centres inside a prison and its far-reaching influence. Well, it is kind of generic when we have seen a good number of prison related movies and series, but […]
