The Frozen (2012) – Stranded in a winter wonderland

The Frozen (2012) – Stranded in a winter wonderland

First of all, do not get yourself confused with horror film Frozen that was released in 2010. The Frozen is a thriller directed by Andrew Hyatt and starring Brit Morgan, Noah Segan and Seth David Mitchell. One of my friends just got the DVD few days back and I was kind of zoomed it on […]

Abduction (2011) – Doesn’t thrill you much

John Singleton directed action thriller “Abduction” is not the one that will keep you on edge till the last moment. And even if it does a bit, it still lacks the frame with a comically over-simplified backstory. I wonder what the director of “Boyz N the Hood” is trying to do with such an ensemble […]

Anne of Green Gables (1985) – a magical tale

Based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novel “Anne of Green Gables”, this Canadian television drama film is indeed magical with content and performances of its lead characters. Well, many of us may have read the book but with Kevin Sullivan’s direction you get the same Anne with her fiery spirit and imagination that have been well […]

The Motorcycle Diaries (2004) – early life of “Che” Guevara

The Motorcycle Diaries (2004) – early life of “Che” Guevara

The movie The Motorcycle Diaries is an interesting attempt to portray the early life of one this noted revolutionist and Communist guerilla leader Ernesto “Che” Guevara. Directed by Walter Salles, this film focuses on the early 60s when Ernesto was about to complete his degree in medicine while living a normal middle class life. Che […]

The Last Exorcism (2010)

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 […]

According to Greta (2009) – an offbeat comedy drama

Many movies explore different aspects of an adolescent life but there are very few that are powerful in citing the rebellious yet believable nature of average teens. Directed by Nancy Bardawil, ACCORDING TO GRETA tries to focus on few things that is very much complex amongst teenagers, including a turbulent home life that further stretched […]

Letters to Juliet (2010) – True love never has a passing date

Letters to Juliet (2010) – True love never has a passing date

LETTERS TO JULIET is an old-fashioned romantic film based on a non-fiction novel with the same name, yet not like the typical romantic movies. As the name sounds, it is based on the trend of letter writing to one of Shakespeare’s most famous romantic heroine. Interestingly, the plot is so surprisingly unique that it holds […]

Mama (2013) – only for intense horror movie buffs

Mama (2013) – only for intense horror movie buffs

If you are fond of horror movies with the kind of original Exorcist, Mama, directed by Andres Muschietti, is the finest one in recent times. It tells about the story of two little girls abandoned in a forest and the pained soul of a mother who is still searching for her infant murdered sometime earlier. […]

Pathology (2008) – A Deadly Game

Pathology (2008) – A Deadly Game

If you have ever liked movies like Crank, Hostel and Saw, PATHOLOGY is yet another addition to meet your taste with full of blood and flesh. Directed by Marc Scholermann, Pathology is a medical thriller which most medical school students may find it easy to watch but not for average audience. This is no way […]

A Good Year (2006)

Before the release of A GOOD YEAR in 2006, Hollywood’s noted filmmaker Ridley Scott was mostly known for his action flicks including Alien (1979), Blade Runner (1982), Gladiator (2000), Black Hawk Down (2001), Kingdom of Heaven (2005) and some other. However, A Good Year was totally a surprise as it was of a different genre, a […]
