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

Last updated on September 14th, 2018 at 02:18 amThe 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 […]

CARGO (2018) – A character-driven zombie movie

September 8, 2018

Last updated on September 14th, 2018 at 02:18 amThis Australian post-apocalyptic thriller CARGO is a good addition to the zombie genre with an interesting concept and a fairly moving storyline.

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 […]

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.

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 […]
