Mad Max Fury Road review; Crazo

Mad Max:Fury Road is just about the most absurd film I’ve seen. Now I’m not talking about cringe-worthy absurd or stupid absurd, I’m talking bout crazy absurd. No film is like that or ever will be or has been. The world belongs to the mad; 6 Oscars definitely belongs to the mad. It features a…

Oscars Thoughts: What A Night

Michael Keaton is indeed Birdman personified. Just like his alter-ego superhuman id in Birdman, Michael Keaton’s riding a resurgence wave. He’s now been in two consecutive best pictures, Birdman and Spotlight, so who really is going to doubt his come-back story. I’m looking forward to seeing him in his future roles! He’s da comeback king!…

Oscars 2016 Predictions

The Oscars are upon us once again. I know I know, yeah it’s a pretentious self-glorifying show about putting on a show in shows. It’s a showy, shallowy need to re-affirm how important and great the people in the industry are. To dampen it’s validity even more, #OscarsSoWhite hangs like a dark cloud over the…

Best Documentaries of 2015; My Picks

The Bear Awards (my blog’s awards) has almost come to an end. Just one more category which is Best Animated Film! I’ve just finished watching the last of the nominated documentaries so here’s who I think should be nominated and who should win. Don’t be too sad, Bear Awards will make a return next year!! Little Bear’s…

Best Adapted and Original Screenplays of 2015; My Picks

I’ve finished giving my verdict on most of the other awards i.e Acting, Director and Cinematography in the lead up to Oscar Night. There’s still a little more till I conclude my Bear Awards for 2015 and I hope you’ve had as much fun as I have doing this. It seems like the Bear Awards…

Deadpool review; Break the fourth wall

If Batman is the hero that we need but not the one we deserve, then Deadpool’s certainly the hero we don’t need but the one that we all want to enjoy. Wait that came out a little wrong. But whatever, Deadpool’s all about awkwardly hilarious moments. For a long time, Marvel has skirted along the…

Fantastic Mr.Fox (2009) review; Foxy fun

One day, I was browsing around for a nice animated film to lift my spirits. It wasn’t a day for serious stuff, oh no, I had specifically wanted to find something light-hearted, wacky and hopefully brazen with its own unique style. I don’t believe that movies are necessarily confined by a certain mold; So in…

Best Directors of 2015; My Picks

I think you’ll find my choices for Best Director pretty, no actually, way out of the mainstream. But these artists were truly revolutionary in their own ways. Their films might not have garnered the widest release and they might not have gained the most attention and praise…but every single one of them were gorddamn outstanding….

(Blindspot #1) The Artist review: Hush, my love.

When I saw that CinemaParrotDisco‘s IMDB Top 250 challenge had The Artist up for grabs for reviewing , I signed up immediately. I’ve always wanted to watch the film and it was in my Blindspot list as well, so I figured, kill two birds with one stone eh? 🙂 The Artist is bravura in film-making….

Taxi Tehran review: Iran said no. Jafar Panahi said yes.

I only recently saw Taxi Tehran and it was quite the experience. Jafar Panahi’s new film doesn’t feel like a film. It’s an outright statement of his undying love for his craft. Panahi’s new film is a social exposé through the prespective of the middle-class Iranian.  Indeed, when you limit one’s freedom of expression, it only paves…

Best Supporting Actressess of 2015; My Picks. Prizes to be won!

The last and final acting category before we go into the technical and artistic awards. Let me tell you something, I had an extremely difficult time picking the best performance of the year for this one. Hmm, I think you’ll find some interesting and unconventional choices here, but these were the best supporting performance in…
