The Last Exorcism (2010)

July 7, 2013

This is yet another found-footage supernatural horror film I have watched in recent time, including that of Paranormal Activity and Grave Encounters. What makes The Last Exorcism different from others is its subject and, of course, the attempt to give a conclusion with no such definite “point of view” rather leaving everything to the audience to construct […]

Remember Me (2010)

July 6, 2013

Frankly, I don’t know where to start; this movie was not what I expected. REMEMBER ME is so original in treatment that even though it seems a film about love and romance, it takes you more towards an emotional drama with a surprisingly rich story. This is a heavy romantic drama and at the same […]

The Yellow Handkerchief (2007) – a touching story

July 1, 2013

I remember when I first got the DVD of the movie “Into the Wild” (2007); I was unable to continue watching this for 15 minutes with an impression that the film is very slow. Well, when I finally watched it, it was just a surreal experience for me. Same in the case of the THE […]
