Making a film based on a real sporting event is very difficult, especially making one that could stand out for its idea, production, characterisation, script, as well as execution. 83 manages to do all that being as big, and as a pleasant surprise as a World Cup win may suffice.
Like everyone else, it’s hard to not get excited about something like this. Though, I am someone who prefers character-driven narratives to plot-driven. Considering that this film involves a big concept like the Multiverse, I went to the cinema with low expectations. But man, this film proved me wrong big time.
Sooryavanshi is a pure wholesome family entertainment film with all commercial elements for an action movie. Although the story is predictable with a slow screenplay, the actor’s screen presence carries it through.
Shang Chi is a spectacle in regards to action sequence and fighting choreography. Visual effects combined with the martial arts look very pleasing and somewhat well-executed. Another new world of fantasies and mystical creatures seems enthralling. But what the movie has in abundance brought through visual richness lacks a strong storyline for an origin story.
The film’s fascinating reason was obvious from the trailer and fortunately, the director had the fortitude to develop that to convey an endearing yet very predictable story in general. At times, it will feel too bland but still offers enough to sit through the end.
Finally, the cinema is back! And what a way to return than one of the biggest visually spectacular extravaganza that is Dune. There is just too much in Dune to pack into a single or even a trilogy of films.
And yet for the keen-eyed viewer, the details and lore are presented and ready to be taken in. The medium is visual and so much of the story is told as it is supposed to be; visually.
Season 3 of You is comical, dark, sexy, twisted and pretty much everything you want all woven together into one of the best shows Netflix has come out with.
Venom 2: Let there be Carnage isn’t actually quite a good film. It’s somewhat a minimization from the past film which itself was very average. There was misuse, love, kinship, father-child, and craziness. All of this squashed in a nonsensical way and ineffectively created style. Carnage wasn’t even given an appropriate character other than killing the bloodline.
The worst thing about Season 1 was the teenagers and the first thing this season does is to kill them off. Perfect! It’s clearly learned from its mistakes. And it’s not just that. Season 2 is 100 times better than Season 1 in almost everything.
The Night House is a psychological horror based on the influence of death. The film rotates around the life of Beth, a 40 something teacher who lost her husband recently as he shot himself sailing in a boat with their home being at the banks of a river.
