Unthinkable (2010) – a hard-hitting suspense thriller

June 15, 2013

Recently, I watched this political suspense thriller Unthinkable and would say that this is simply one of the best when you think of something unexpected, something that forced you to face your values, your beliefs, and morality with the reality. The story deals with terrorism and the question of how far we all are willing […]

  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).

Flight (2012) – an exceptional piece of storytelling

June 10, 2013

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 […]

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.

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 Man on the Train (L’homme du train)

June 3, 2013

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, […]
