Movie Reviews

Here is a review of the film.

Ironclad (2011) – just a bloody swordplay

Well, I always like all kinds of historical movies especially those popular stories depicting the past, even though those are loosely based on reality and more with fictional characters. Ironclad [2011] is definitely one of those, set on the time of King John when he signed the very famous Magna Carta treaty. Directed by Jonathan English, […]

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – an exotic experience

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel [released in UK 2012] follows a group of British retirees, who for different reasons decide to “outsource” their retirement to less expensive yet exotic India with a hope to get all luxury and peace in life. The film banks on the saying: “Everything will be all right in the end. So […]

Changeling – a real life crime melodrama

Changeling – a real life crime melodrama

Based on true-life events in 1928 Los Angeles, Changeling (released in 2008) is truly one of the very few movies based on true characters and yet successfully catches your imagination. Directed and produced by none other than Client Eastwood, this mystery-suspense-drama has been well appreciated by critics as well as moviegoers for the sheer performance […]

Rise of the Guardians (2012) – all to believe in

Face/Off (1997) – A treat to watch

Face/Off (1997) – A treat to watch

Well, here is a film that gives you a wholesome entertainment with an amazing thrill ride. Even though predictable most often, this 1997-released Face/Off starring Nicolas Cage (as Castor Troy) and John Travolta (as Sean Archer) is simply the best when it comes to movie making in style. Isn’t it interesting to watch two accomplished actors […]

Drive Angry (2011) – another usual Nicholas Cage flick

Released on 2011 Here comes a pensively intense overacting by none other than Nicolas Cage. J. Nonetheless, Drive Angry is one classy action flick like those of the Ghost Rider that doesn’t waste much of your time and takes you into a 1 hr. 44 min ride with guns, gore, tits and unending violence.    […]
