Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

While watching this movie, there were people in the cinema in our row who had literally fallen asleep (and snoring away), while others were playing away Candy Crush. This is where the problem arose. It’s a movie that demands complete and utter attention from the viewers. There is no Mission Impossible style action or sequences…

Dunkirk

To the uninitiated, “The Battle of Dunkirk was a military operation that took place in Dunkirk (Dunkerque), France, during the Second World War. The battle was fought between the Allies and Nazi Germany. As part of the Battle of France on the Western Front, the Battle of Dunkirk was the defence and evacuation of British and Allied forces in Europe from 26 May to 4 June 1940.”…

Lion

Sometimes I am a little skeptical when it comes to watching films that have been Oscar nominated. At times I am left with a feeling as to why a particular movie won and why not the other? Other times, when I see the “based on a true story” tagline, I wonder how much of it…

Spiderman: Homecoming

When I heard about this new Spiderman movie coming, my initial reaction: not again. Why is there is a need to reboot a superhero franchise movie for a third time now? Having said that, I have to take back my initial reaction. Spiderman: Homecoming was actually a great movie. Though, I have to admit that…

Baby Driver

When a movie receives a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, along with a strong positive word of mouth, one does tend to get a little curious as to what the hype is all about. Such is the case with the newly released Baby Driver.So, in short, is the hype justified? So, in short, is the…

Logan

It was seventeen years ago when Hugh Jackman played the breakout role of Wolverine in the X Men movie. Since then, whenever one thinks of Wolverine, it’s Hugh Jackman. Logan is set in 2029, where Wolverine/ Logan is now known as James Howlett and drives around a limousine. He’s grown old, drunk and full of…

Split

Welcome back M. Night Shyamalan! How awesome it is to see you back in your trademark form by bringing to us Split!   I remember how excited I was when I saw the trailer for Split, that stars James McAvoy as a man with a split personality. Tonight, the cinema hall was buzzing with excitement…

Star Wars: Rogue One

I am probably one of the last ones on this planet to have just seen Star Wars Rogue One last night, hence the late review. One of the joys of watching Star Wars Rogue One is the fact we, by that I mean the children of the 80s, can revisit our childhood era with excitement…

La La Land

Before I get into my review, I have to let you know four things that will determine whether you will like this movie or not. They are: The actor is Ryan Gosling The actress is Emma Stone La La Land is a musical (2 hours long) The genre of the music is jazz If you…

Doctor Strange

I’ll be very honest with you. I was getting tired of all the superhero/ comic books heroes movies coming out. I didn’t watch the latest Captain America and I didn’t enjoy the latest X-Men, not to mention the disappointment that was Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. But when Doctor Strange was released yesterday and…
