AMERICAN REUNION

I have been a fan of the trilogy since the first movie back in 1999. AMERICAN PIE is a trend setter for all high school comedy movies that discuss matters of adolescents in high school.  For fans of the trilogy this is a massive comeback and is largely welcome after 9 years. The teaser campaign […]

CONTRABAND

Everyone likes a happy ending? An idiom quite popular, a trail of thought that most viewers are already preprogrammed to, this is why when there is a twist or a cliff hanger at the end of the worst of movies it gets high ratings. A majority of Hollywood hits tread this same path and CONTRABAND […]

My Girlfriends Boyfriend

In an attempt to stretch too far Daryn Tufts almost capsizes his debut full length directorial. A script that is written on a basic platform Tufts explores his minds creativity by adding in a twist that which certainly is clever. My Girlfriends Boyfriend isn’t the obvious tale of a girl torn between 2 men as […]

Sleeping Beauty

The age old fable says that SLEEPING BEAUTY was cursed on the day of her christening since the King and Queen mistakenly skipped inviting a particular wicked witch to the special occasion. The wicked witch set a curse upon the princess; a curse that says she would die by pricking herself by a spindle. One […]

21 JUMP STREET

I have not laughed as hard in a long time for an action/comedy ensemble since BAD BOYS wrapped up back in 2003. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence although rumored to come back have not got on the BAD BOYS wagon as yet. Serving it clean with unmistakable talent, precision writing and ambitious direction 21 JUMP […]

JACK & JILL

Jack and Jill Sadelstien are twins with very different lifestyles. While Jack is a wealthy commercial advertising director who runs his own company and has beautiful family with a gorgeous wife (Katie Holmes) Jill is a small town girl who grew up and lived with her mother all her life. Jill has not had any […]

J.Edgar

An attempt on a biography is indeed a perilous task. To take on a bio-pic indefinitely requires heightened attributes of courage and confidence. Veteran director Clint Eastwood takes on the life events of John Edgar Hoover and spins out in my opinion a rather compact and fathomable angle of the widely feared gentleman’s life.  The […]

The Sound Of Music

Do Re Mi Fa So ……….. Only a very selected and unfortunate few will not be able to tie that to the movie which has gone down the years as a golden classic and an all-time favorite and a definite must watch. Are you still trying to guess the movie? Let me try again……  How […]

THE TREE OF LIFE

Terrence Malick needs to be credited for his acute style of writing in THE TREE OF LIFE. I am certain Malick is over the moon with his production shortlisted for the Oscars 2012.  It is assumed that several rounds of voting’s take place prior to the final nominations being announced. I am baffled now as […]

Drive : There is definitely something retro about DRIVE and a little bit of art-house!

Straight Faced – is the only term that justifies this movie. Clearly a disappointment for those who expect to see fast cars and high speed police chases and tuned up American muscle or imports! Instead Nicolas Winding Refn gives us the Chevrolet Impala and just a Mustang with very limited screening time. In no terms […]

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL

I could not score tickets to the premier; hence I waited out the rush and finally against many negative reviews on MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL I am watching it. When news broke out that Tom Cruise and J.J Abrams were on the lookout for a director never did I for a moment expect Brad Bird […]

MELANCHOLIA

mv5bmtk4njm0mji3mv5bml5banbnxkftztcwnjcxmdyzng_v1_sy317_.jpg

Mary Jane Watson has a come long way since her upside down kiss with the masqueraded Peter Parker. Named best Actress at Cannes; MELANCHOLIA is undoubtedly one of her (Kirsten Dunst) best works as of date. Its Justine’s (Kirsten Dunst) wedding day! Clearly depressed beyond fathomable explanation she does seem to come through as inconsiderate […]

THE DESCENDANTS – A sad to be missed motion picture.

mv5bmjaynta1mtcyn15bml5banbnxkftztcwnjeyodcznq_v1_sy317_.jpg

The greatness of the movie, let alone the greatness of George Clooney’s’ acting is extremely hard for me to zero in on as I experienced the wonders of THE DESCENDANTS. Of course with time I realized that my expectations were set so high by its 2 wins at last week’s Golden Globes that I was […]
