The Avengers: Age Of Ultron; Mediocre at best.

The trailer for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron was quite spectacular. It was also better than the movie. It didn’t live up to its hype in both the action and the story. I might get some flak from die-hard marvel fans, but let’s be honest, the X-men series (Origins & Days of future past) outshines…

Wild Tales: A breath of humour and tragedy and everything else mixed together.

Wild Tales is Damian Szifron’s interesting look into the ‘extreme’. So uncompromising is his style that stories barely lie on the fringe of realism; But reality is bent just enough to underscore some very real and dreadful revelations. Six stories make up the film and each begin somewhat innocently as we’re introduced to characters that…

Insurgent: It didn’t quite cut it.

It’s sad to see that many people’s first impression of Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller are for their roles in the Divergent series. Whatever happened to The Fault In Our Stars(Shailene), The Descendants(Shailene), Whiplash(Miles) and The Spectacular Now(both of them)? Insurgent was honestly quite disappointing. It lacked the action, depth, plot and characterization that I…

Selma: Gritty Glory.Ava DuVernay and David Oyelowo produce an epic.

After watching Selma, you’ll wonder why Ava DuVernay was not nominated for Best Director and why David Ojewolo missed out on a Best Actor nomination. There’s quite abit of controversy surrounding this. Whether it’s because there’s a lack of diversity in the academy (94% White, 64% Men, average age of 63) or because Ava and…

Under The Skin:A metaphor itself,deliberately murky and highly polarizing.

There might never be a film more polarizing in recent times than Under The Skin.I’ll just start off with the fact that I found the film highly bizarre, profound in meaning, and extremely deliberate in its visual and auditory metaphors. Some call it a masterpiece, others found it too slow and jarring,thus losing its intended…

Nightcrawler:Into the grey,ambigiuity and violence are beautifully captured.

A review with more psychoanalytic emphasis which will delve deeper into exploring the nature of our protagonist Lou.Comments are always welcome and I would love to hear your perspective on the film 🙂 In the violent world set in Nightcrawler,worth and value are as good as your ability to survive. One may be inclined to think…

Boyhood:Organic,unashamedly real but alas,heart-warming.

If you’re hoping to be thoroughly entertained by life’s crazy out of the world experiences, or glean some profound enlightening insight,then Boyhood is not that kind of movie.Strip it down to its core, and it’s wholly based on the genuine.Life,love and loss are,to the great success of this film,organic. It’s easy to watch because it’s…
