Movie Reviews

Here is a review of the film.

Love Actually (2003) – love is all around

  Screenplay writer Richard Curtis (“Four Weddings and a Funeral” and “Notting Hill”) for the first time directed his own screenplay with an ensemble star cast in LOVE ACTUALLY (2003). On the course of a particular eventful Christmas, or say the weeks before the celebration, the film throws you into an ocean of love stories, […]

Flight (2012) – an exceptional piece of storytelling

After watching Flight I believe this might be based on any fictionalised true story where an intoxicated pilot Whip Whitaker, who happens to be an alcoholic, crashes a plane although nearly saving every soul in it.  Even though hailed as a hero by local media, under the circumstances he preferred that miracle crash-landing, several questions are […]

Last Dance (2012) – all about human compassion

As I was searching to find some nice movies, I accidentally bumped into an Australian production Last Dance. Interestingly, this 2012-released movie happens to be one of the critically acclaimed flicks with a power packed performances from two of its lead characters. Dealing with a provocative subject matter, the understanding between Jews (Israeli) and Palestinians, the […]

The Fourth Kind (2009) – Misleading, not so impressive

Released in 2009, The Fourth Kind talks about one of the most talked about yet unexplained phenomena “the existence of aliens” and the alien invasions into our human world. This horror/sci-fi movie claims to be based on actual events occurring in Nome, Alaska in 2000 and somehow tries to correlate the disappearance of Nome residents […]

The Innkeepers (2011) – Not scary enough, yet engaging

The Innkeepers follows some unnatural events in the Yankee Pedlar Inn in Connecticut, which is known to locals as the most haunted hotels. The movie focuses  on its final week of service before it closes for good after a century long history. On its final few days, the last remaining two employees Claire (Sara Paxton) […]

The Man on the Train (L’homme du train)

Well my last review was on a movie that talked explicitly on sex but this one is totally different, as it is about friendship between two men, sans sex and romance. Director Patrice Leconte in L’homme Du Train very finely painted the characters of two men who are polls apart, from different walks of life, […]

A Prophet (Un prophete) – a French prison thriller

This French prison melodrama is one of the best I have seen in the last few years. I have had watched the popular TV series Prison Break, but A Prophet from the director Jacques Audiard is all the more engaging and thrilling in its own way. Released in 2009, the film was even nominated to the […]

Wreck-It Ralph – when toys come to life

Wreck-It Ralph – when toys come to life

Walt Disney’s 2012-released Wreck-It Ralph is a sweet computer-animated film that takes you for a ride inside the fantasy gaming world in a different and new perspective. Directed by Rich Moore, this presents the story about an imaginary 80s video game called “Fix It Felix Jr” and its lead bad guy character Ralph. Ralph, who […]
